Skin Rejuvenation

Skin rejuvenation involves reversing the effects of aging that we notice on our skin. These changes start on our face as fine lines around our mouth and eyes, and then become deeper over time.   These involve all aspects of our face including our forehead, eyes, cheeks, eyelids, and our mouth area.  There are many simple treatments that can be used to help these problems. 

Earlier treatment of fine lines can prevent some of the deeper lines that develop including the forehead lines (“double 1”), nasolabial folds, and jaw lines (“marionette lines”).  Luckily, there are non-surgical treatments for many of these aging changes. Topical numbing cream is used for almost all treatments so most patients feel little to no discomfort.

Botox and Dysport

These are FDA-approved products to help smooth the lines in your face around your eyes (“crows feet”), frown lines, and forehead lines.

The effects take effect within 2 weeks and will last for 3 months or longer.

Fillers

These are FDA-approved products that are used to help “fill” in areas of your face that have lost volume due to aging.  They can be added to the cheeks, nasolabial folds, lips, and around the mouth.

Fillers we offer include:  Restylane, Refyne, Defyne, Contour, Lyft, Sculptra, Silk, and Kysse.

Plasma Pen

This is a very advanced, non-invasive treatment which is used for skin lifting and skin tightening.  This treatment increases collagen and elastin in the skin.  The most common areas treated include the upper eyelids, under the eyes (“tear troughs”), nasolabial folds, jaw, corners of the mouth, and neck. The Plasma Pen can also be used on any loose skin including stretch marks, abdomen, upper arms, and hips.  The “Plasma Pen” is a FDA-approved device that uses electrical energy to the skin’s surface without damaging the surrounding tissue.  The electrical energy stimulates fibroblasts, cells in the skin that produce collagen and elastin, thereby increasing collagen and elastin in the skin.   The device does not touch the skin during treatment.  The Plasma stream creates multiple tiny red dots on the treated skin, which forms into tiny scabs.  The scabs will fall off after 5-7 days.  Noticeable results are often seen immediately.  Remodeling of the skin occurs over time as collagen production increases, and therefore continued improvements in the skin occurs in the next 12 weeks.  Most patients notice a more youthful appearance even after only 1 treatment. Each treatment takes 60-90 minutes, but can take longer depending on the areas you are treating. 

Microneedling

A Rejuvapen is used to make tiny skin pricks in the skin which then allow applied serums to reach the dermis. The healing of the small skin pricks leads to an increase in collagen production in the skin, leading to smoother, tighter, more toned, and refreshed skin. Tiny skin pricks are made in the skin with a Rejuvapen ™, a special tool.  Serums are applied to the treated area which reach the dermis.  These small tiny skin pricks heal naturally and the skin then increases collagen production.   As the skin heals collagen production in the skin increases, leading to smoother, tighter, more toned, and refreshed skin.  This process of healing and rejuvenation continues for 3-6 months after the treatment.  Most patients need 2 – 4 Microneedling treatments 1 month apart to reach their desired effects.

PRP for treating of hair loss for men and women

The most common cause of hair thinning and hair loss occurs with aging and is called Androgenic alopecia. This is also called female (or male)-pattern baldness. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatments can stop further hair loss and also result in new hair growth… finally an effective treatment for this devastating disorder! PRP works by delivering many different growth factors to the scalp and hair follicles. PRP is most effective when Vellus hairs are still present, before true baldness occurs. Vellus hairs are the hairs that are stimulated with PRP. Therefore, you need to seek treatment as soon as you can to prevent true baldness in these areas, in which case PCP may not be effective. The treatment involves drawing a sample of blood from your arm, then processing the blood to obtain the platelets and plasma (“Platelet Rich Plasma”). These are placed in tiny syringes and the PRP is injected into the scalp. PRP treatments are done in a series of 3 treatments 8-12 weeks apart. Most often, patients notice a significant improvement in hair quality and thickness after the second treatment. Androgenic alopecia is a chronic, progressive condition that will not be cured with PRP. In order to maintain your results, you will need to continue with 1-2 treatments annually.

Threads

Threads are suture material that are placed into the skin that stimulate collagen production in the areas you need it. Dissolvable suture material is placed into areas of thin skin or etched lines in the face. As the threads dissolve in the next 6-8 weeks, collagen is laid down into the tracts where the threads were placed, leading to a more youthful appearance. Treatments are repeated until a desired amount of collagen production is achieved.

Chemical Peel

We offer at Italian peel, PRXT33, that has no “downtime” or peeling. This can be used on the face, chest, hands, abdomen and thighs to help your skin. It is a peel without a peel… there is no peeling or flaking with this treatment!

This chemical peel uses 4 lb of pressure to push the chemical into the dermis, where elastin and collagen originate. This peel penetrates down to the deeper layers of the skin but leaves the skin surface intact. This peel can be done any time of the year as it does not cause sensitivity to the sun.

Some of the effects of this peel include:
– Improved hydration, firmness and tightening of the skin.
– Reduction in pore size
– Minimizes wrinkles and fine lines
– Diminished age spots, hyperpigmentation, and melasma
– Brightens skin
– Lift sagging skin including face, chest, abdomen, stretch marks, chest, and thighs!
