Surgical cosmetic procedures
Blepharoplasty is an eyelid surgery, which is performed to help improve the appearance of the eyelids. Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper lids, bottom lids, or both lids, depending on the needs of the patient. Eyelid surgery is often performed to improve the appearance of bags under the eyes, as well as to fix drooping upper and lower eyelids that may be impairing vision. After recovery from blepharoplasty, most patients feel that their eyes have been rejuvenated.
Brow lifts, also known as a forehead lift, are often performed to reduce wrinkles, reduce frown lines, and to raise eyebrows which may be sagging because of age. When performing a brow lift, many patients opt to have other procedures performed, like face lifts, skin resurfacing, and eyelid tucks. Brow lifts are best for patients who are looking to erase small signs of aging that have appeared in the brow area of the face.
For those that are looking to age effortlessly, a mid-face lift may be the answer. Mid-face lifts, or cheek lifts, are best for patients who want to reduce signs of aging like sagging in the cheeks. Traditional face lifts may not properly treat the cheeks or eyelids, which can age more quickly than the rest of the face. Mid-face lifts have more permanent effects than injectables like BOTOX, making them a smart choice for anyone looking to age effortlessly and gracefully.
Non-surgical cosmetic procedures
Juvederm is a family of fillers, all looking to make you look and feel your best. For cheeks, there’s Juvederm Voluma XC, which was created to add volume that may have become depleted with aging. For tackling tough lines and wrinkles, there’s Juvederm XC to create a smoother appearance that looks natural. Even aging lips can be treated with Juvederm Ultra XC to add fullness to lips, or Juvederm Volbella XC to add volume and soften hard lip lines.
Looking in the mirror doesn’t have to be a chore anymore. With Radiesse, you can look radiant and young, minus the wrinkles. Radiesse is a dermal filler specially formulated for the face and hands that adds volume to the skin, as well as stimulating the production of your body’s own collagen. Radiesse looks completely natural, and keeps on working in patients for a year or more after injection.
Laser skin resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is more commonly known as a laser peel or laser vaporization. Laser skin resurfacing uses extreme precision and control, allowing surgeons to easily reduce the appearance of wrinkles, blemishes, and scars. Minor flaws in the skin like acne scars, sun damaged skin, and fine lines can be subtly taken care of with the use of laser skin resurfacing techniques.
Laser hair removal
Tired of shaving, waxing, or plucking away unwanted hair? Laser hair removal is an effective way of getting rid of unwanted hair for several months at a time. When hair does grow back after laser hair removal, many patients find that after 2-6 treatments, their hair is finer, and lighter than before. Laser hair removal can be used on most parts of the body, including the back, chest, bikini line, upper lip and chin, neck, and shoulders.
Laser body treatments (spider veins, stretchmarks, surgical scars)
Laser body treatments are a great way to get rid of unsightly problems like spider veins, stretch marks, and surgical scars. The body you have is yours forever, so it’s important that yours looks as great as you feel! Heated lasers are used to treat the parts of your body that need work, and usually take less than an hour to complete.
Facial treatments (wrinkles, sun damage, rosacea, scarring)
Adult skin problems are not a forever problem if they are treated properly. The use of a photosensitizer Levulan Kerastick, and application of a blue light, can be helpful for patients that suffer from the symptoms of rosacea, sun damage, and wrinkles. These conditions can often be seen as unsightly, with many patients looking to get rid of them. Though there are no permanent cures, sun damage and rosacea can often be treated and controlled by a patient with doctor supervision.
When worrying about aging, many people focus on the face, but forget that other parts of the body, such as the hands, show age as well. Hand rejuvenation can be achieved in a variety of different ways including the use of fat transfer. Fat transfer works by using processed fat from the patient, usually taken from the buttocks or thigh, and redistributes the fat into the aging hands, making them look younger and rejuvenated.
One of the most common signs of aging is the los2s of youthful contours in the neck and face. A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a procedure that can reduce the appearance of jowls, loose skin on the neck, and excess fatty deposits under the chin. Other popular procedures performed with a neck lift include brow lifts, eyelid surgery, or a fat transfer.
