Signs of Aging Signs of aging can range from brown age spots to saggy skin to shallowness around the face and neck. If you want to look younger and healthier, come in for a consultation. We have an option that is right for you to rejuvenate your skin and help you to look and feel the best you can be. Treatment Options Fillers & Injectables 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. Chemical Peels 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. Profractional™ Laser The Sciton ProFractional™ Laser is an ablative laser treatment that resurfaces a small amount of skin in order to encourage rapid healing – without sacrificing on results. This is different from other laser resurfacing treatments in that the Sciton ProFractional™ Laser only resurfaces a “fraction” of the skin to generate results. BBL Broadband Light Sciton Brandband Light (BBL™) technology is the world’s most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment. It’s an excellent procedure for patients who suffer from sun damage, wrinkles, acne, and common aging symptoms. With Sciton BBL™ treatments, your complexion will be transformed and refreshed. Contour TRL™ The Sciton Contour TRL™ Laser is a multi-functional laser resurfacing technology that can be adjusted to deliver multiple treatments types. Contour TRL™ Laser treatment can be adjusted to deliver a shallow facial peel or a deeper resurfacing, depending on the patient’s desired goals and preferences. Halo™ 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. MicroLaserPeel® Sciton MicroLaserPeel® technology is an epidermal laser peel treatment that’s excellent for patients who are looking to refresh and rejuvenate their skin without extensive recovery time. In fact, the Sciton MicroLaserPeel® is often regarded as a “weekend peel,” as people can get the peel on Saturday and be recovered in time for work on Monday! NanoLaserPeel™ If you’re looking for a quick “weekend” peel that will refresh and rejuvenate your face, the Sciton NanoLaserPeel™ Laser is an excellent treatment option. This laser resurfacing procedure is extremely light; it only removes the topmost layer of the dermis to help address complexion issues. Microdermabrasion Microdermabrasion is effective in reducing fine lines, age spots, and mild acne scars, yielding a refreshed, healthier glow to the skin. The treatment stimulates the production of skin cells and collagen. Each treatment takes 30 minutes to an hour, and the number of treatments recommended for maximal results can range between 5 and 12, spaced between 2 to 3 weeks apart. There is no downtime following the treatments. We also recommend a personalized, medical-grade skincare regimen to maximize your results. Vivace RF Microneedling Vivace is an FDA-approved device that combines the power of radiofrequency energy with the benefits of microneedling to produce gorgeous and glowing skin. Vivace is an excellent solution for patients who want to see a more even and radiant complexion, as well as a reduction in wrinkles, fine lines, and even hyperpigmentation. The best candidates for Vivace RF Microneedling may have mild-to-moderate signs of aging, and want to see younger, more even-looking skin.
