What are cosmetic injectables?
Cosmetic injectables include Botox and dermal fillers. These substances soften lines and wrinkles and, in the case of fillers, erase hollow contours that show your age.
Botox contains a purified toxin that relaxes the muscles that contribute to wrinkling on the forehead, around the eyes, and between the brows. Dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected into areas such as nasolabial folds, smile lines, and your cheeks and lips to plump the skin and soften your look.
What are microneedling and PRP?
Microneedling uses a device equipped with tiny needles to poke microscopic holes into the surface of your skin. The holes are invisible to the eye but trigger your body’s wound healing mechanisms to rebuild cells and collagen. The treatment also makes your skin temporarily more receptive to topical serum application.
Microneedling may be combined with PRP, or platelet-rich plasma. PRP is derived from your own blood and contains a concentrated amount of platelets, compounds in your blood that have tremendous healing factors. When PRP is slathered over your skin following microneedling, you receive these growth factors that help heal aging skin.
What light and laser therapies are available?
LED light therapy soothes and rejuvenates irritated, inflamed skin. It’s a pain-free and noninvasive way to treat acne, wrinkles and creases, rosacea, and scarring.
Radio frequency energy uses heat energy to tighten lax skin that’s developed due to aging or sun damage. The increase in skin temperature stimulates collagen formation at the deepest layers to create tauter skin.
Laser skin resurfacing treats wrinkles, skin discoloration, and mild to moderate scarring. A device emits short, concentrated pulses of light on areas of your skin that needs treatment. The very outermost layers of your skin are removed, revealing fresh, healthy, blemish-free skin.
What are PDO thread lifts?
A PDO thread lift tightens sagging skin using surgical-grade threads. These PDO threads are introduced into the deeper layers of your skin by injection to raise sagging skin and tissue. You get a lifted, more youthful look in just minutes. Plus, the procedure stimulates collagen and blood vessels to improve your skin’s texture and elasticity for the long-term.
What is Lipolaser?
Lipolaser is an effective way to melt away fat in stubborn areas of your body that are resistant to diet and exercise. The procedure is done in-office while you’re under local anesthesia. The doctors make a small incision and insert a tiny laser under the skin. This laser liquefies your fat so it can then be vacuumed out using a cannula, or tiny tube. You’ll have a few days of downtime and post-procedure downtime as well as swelling and redness. Results are evident as soon as the swelling goes down.
