The holidays are a wonderful opportunity to get together with family and friends. We all want to look our best during these social gatherings, but often finding the time to take care of ourselves during this busy season can be difficult. To solve this dilemma, we have put together a Holiday Guide for addressing wrinkles, skin discolorations and unwanted hair with quick and effective aesthetic treatments. Each treatment is non-invasive, which means there is little to no downtime. Celebrate this holiday season feeling refreshed and confident.
Injectables are a quick and easy way to smooth fine lines and wrinkles for a younger-looking appearance. Injectables can be neuromodulators or dermal fillers. Two of the most popular neuromodulators are BOTOX® and Dysport®. Each is designed to soften the muscle activities that cause tired or angry-looking wrinkles, resulting in a smoother complexion. Dermal fillers primarily consist of specially-crosslinked Hyaluronic acid, which restores lost volume and definition to the face.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing can very successfully improve the quality, thickness and tightness of facial skin by stimulating new collagen and elastin growth. Depending on the laser settings used, downtime may be negligible to more than a week for deeper treatments.
Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling devices use tiny, gold-tipped needles to penetrate the skin’s dermis. Once the microneedles are maximally engaged in the skin, a burst of radiofrequency energy is delivered to stimulate dermal collagen production, thus, thickening, tightening and rejuvenating the skin of our face and neck. Coupling RF Microneedling with a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment provides optimal results for smoother, tighter skin. PRP utilizes 7 growth factors from your own blood to stimulate new cell and collagen growth.
Photorejuvenation is a great option for treating sun damage, age spots, brown and red discolorations, freckles and rosacea. This procedure delivers well-controlled pulses of light into the dermal layers to target skin conditions at the source without damaging the surface, resulting in a more even skin tone.
Permanent Hair Removal
Permanent hair removal is the solution for unsightly or unwanted hair. This can be accomplished through revolutionary new technology called Selective Waveband Technology (SWT). The SWT uses controlled pulses of light to ensure the proper wavelength and energy is used to destroy the hair follicle without damaging the surface of the skin. Because of this new technology, gone are the days of highly uncomfortable laser hair removal treatments! Once the hair follicle is destroyed, future hair growth is prevented.
Microdermabrasion is a safe, effective and gentle way to exfoliate your skin. It uses very fine, sterile crystals to exfoliate the surface of the skin. During this process, the dry, damaged surface skin is removed, leaving skin that is smooth and vibrant.
With all of the holiday hustle and bustle, it is always nice to take a few minutes to pamper yourself. Taking the time to consult with a Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon can have you looking your very best this holiday season.
