Treatment Options

The Sciton Halo™ Pro Laser is a hybrid fractional laser that’s exceptional at treating multiple skin issues, including laxity, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and more. The Halo™ Pro Laser combines non-ablative and ablative wavelengths to simultaneously tighten and tone skin while treating surface complexion issues.

Kybella is an FDA-approved injection that can be used to get rid of submental chin fat. Kybella is an excellent solution for patients who may have excessive fat underneath their chin and around the jawline. The best candidates for Kybella are those patients who have excellent skin laxity and are having difficulty spot-treating chin fat through diet and exercise alone. Kybella can only be used to treat chin fat, although it’s already being used on other body areas in European countries.

Radio-frequency (RF) is a non-surgical solution to reduce sagging skin, reduce wrinkling, and tighten skin. Heat is directed in a controlled manner to the deeper layers of skin. This induces the self-repair mechanisms of the skin to release growth factors. Collagen is produced and elastic fibers build up over time. Noticeable changes are seen after a series of three RF treatments.

Fillers are often used together with injectables such as Botox® and Dysport®. Botox® and Dysport® contain minute amounts of a toxin called Botulinum bacteria that temporarily “freezes” muscles. These are carefully injected into the skin – at precise areas – to decrease muscle contractions that lead to creases and wrinkles. Crow’s feet, forehead lines and neck bands are just some of the areas that can all be improved, and results can be seen within a few days to a week. This facial smoothing and relaxation of frown lines last at least three months.

A superficial chemical peel treatment helps exfoliate and accelerate the removal of dead skin cells. They have been shown to prevent the breakdown of collagen and stimulate the process of natural skin renewal. Unlike the deeper phenol of a TCA peel, the depth of penetration is kept to the epidermal or superficial dermis, eliminating the crusting or peeling that may happen with deeper peels.
