Skin Tightening and Rejuvenation
Fresher and healthier skin can be achieved by removing irregular brown pigmentation, redness caused by inflammation, wrinkles, laxity, and textural changes caused by sun exposure, chronologic aging and genetic predispositions. After 30 years of age, our bodies no longer produce collagen (or bone) without a stimulus. Energy treatments with non-ablative lasers, optical light, focused ultrasound and radiofrequency stimulate cellular collagen, elastin and ground substance production. Most patients notice an immediately brighter, lifted, more energetic appearance. Procedures are safe and ideal for patients wanting no down time, pain or high risk of side effects. Patients with a prior facelift seek our treatments to improve the skin quality and to avoid additional surgeries. We use the safest effective technologies to create a younger, healthier, and restored appearance. Patients comment that results are quite “natural and youthful.” Every day, we hear patients say in amazement, “…WOW, …I can see a difference, …OMG.”
How treatments work:
We individualize treatments using a selected series of laser, optical, ultrasound and radiofrequency energies to achieve the best results. After treatment many of our patients see a “lift and luminous glow.” The immediate improvement from the contraction of existing collagen fibers continues to improve over the next few days. After 3 weeks, the cells will produce new collagen, elastin and ground substance, building on additive benefits over time for a “new normal”. You cannot even feel some treatments, “…feels like having an ultrasound.” Some are bright and require eye cover to be worn during treatments. The focused ultrasound has mostly no feeling, and some treated areas will have a prickly feeling. Pain medication or numbing creams are not needed for skin procedures in our office.
What we can treat:
Typical benign pigmented skin lesions include: sun spots, freckles, lentigines, age-spots, and melasma. Benign vascular lesions in the skin include: facial small blood vessels, inflammation from rosacea, redness and mottled pigment on the sides of the neck, chest and body from chronic sun exposure. The “Clear Lift” is also called the “lunch-time face-lift.” Laser energy resurfaces and improves pores and skin texture; improvement you can see and feel. Skin tightening is maximized with several energy devices as indicated, and can be used on all skin types. Besides the corrective benefits, our treatments are anti-aging. We also offer natural rejuvenation with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injections for skin and hair rejuvenation. We do not offer ablative or surgical services.
What to expect:
Patients usually see a visible difference even after the first treatment. Serial treatments further the sustained long term and additive benefits over time. Most patients have 3 to 5 treatments, 3 to 4 weeks apart and then continue maintenance treatments every one to 6 months. The collagen benefits are cumulative and continue long after therapy. Our team of MD, NP, and RNs all work together sharing patients to provide treatments. All patients are to continue a personal skin care regiment to improve and maintain treatment results. Unlike more aggressive treatments, there is no bruising or numbness from our procedures. Individuals do respond differently; genetics and starting point laxity will affect results and exact results cannot be guaranteed.
Not for You:
Patient’s who desire dramatic changes in lax skin will be referred to a plastic surgeon. Patients who have an implantable metal device, a pacemaker, or have a metal plate or nerve insensitivity specifically in the treatment area should not have radiofrequency treatments. Patients with dark skin types should not use the light-based (DVL) energy treatment.
