Non Surgical Rejuvenation Fillers Restylane® Restylane® is an FDA approved filler that is ideal for correcting skin texture imperfections such as acne scars, wrinkles and fine lines. It is also great for plumping and enhancing various parts of the face, including the lips. Restylane® is an immediate and long-lasting solution to reducing the appearance of furrows and contour depressions. The benefits of Restylane® should remain visible for 6-12 months, depending on the location of the treatment and the nature of your skin. Hair Removal with Elos You may be surprised to learn that almost your entire body is covered with hair. But that being said, men and women both have areas of the body where hair appears that they don't like or expect. For women it is usually on the face, neck, abdomen, breasts, or arms. For men, trouble areas are generally the back, shoulders, around the ears, and between the eyebrows. In the past methods like plucking, shaving, waxing, or chemicals were used, but all are temporary. Electrolysis was used as a permanent means of hair removal but proved very slow and painful with side effects including electrical shock, infection, pitting or scarring. With a quick flash of light and radio frequency (RF) energy, hundreds of hair follicles become disabled. The blended energy (pulsed light and radio frequency) is even effective on lighter-colored hair and hair on darker- skinned individuals. With minimal short-term side effects, such as mild local swelling and redness, patients can resume their normal routine immediately. elos has little discomfort during treatment and the results are longer- lasting than other non-blended technologies. Usually 4 to 8 treatments are required over a 12-month period, depending on hair color and skin type. Spider Veins Spider veins (telangiectasias) are the wavy, thin reddish purple veins that are visible most often on the legs. The cause for Spider veins is mainly genetic, but can also be caused by pregnancy, childbirth, birth control medication, estrogen replacement therapy, previous injury or use of steroids. There is nothing to prevent their occurrence. This condition, though not debilitating, may cause one to be self-conscious. In the past Spider Veins were treated with either electrodessication (zapping the vein shut with an electrical current, sometimes leaving scarring), or sclerotherapy (injection of a solution into the vein to make it collapse), but neither were consistently successful. elos Leg Vein Treatment and Vascular Lesion Treatment Improve the appearance of unsightly leg veins up to 4mm in diameter. Veins treated will look darker and a bit swollen after treatment. Sometimes little pink bumps will appear and last for a day or two. Depending on the size of the veins, multiple treatments may be needed. Usually 2 to 3 treatments spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart are needed. Fine Wrinkle Reduction Using a combination of both laser and radio frequency energies, areas where fine lines appear around the eyes, cheeks and mouth can be improved. This occurs because new collagen is stimulated due to the precisely directed heating of the deeper layers of the skin without injuring the surface epidermis. This process involves 5 to 8 treatments over 12 to 24 months. FotoFacial RF Restore youthful beauty to the skin by eliminating capillaries, sun spots and improving color, tone and texture while lessening the appearance of fine and deeper lines. FotoFacial RF™ treatments are full-face, neck and/or chest treatments using pulses of visible light combined with RF energy that improve facial redness and flushing as well as the visible signs of sun damage and aging, including wrinkles and loose skin. Usually five treatments are performed at three-week intervals with minimal risk, little discomfort and no downtime.
