We all know that “beauty is fleeting”, but can we do something to extend the appearance of youth? Like the clothes you wear, your skin deteriorates with time and with exposure to the weather. It develops wrinkles, blemishes, stretch marks, scars, unwanted hair, vessels and cellulite.
With aging skin eventually tends to become dull, lax and wrinkled. Unlike the fabric of your clothes, the fabric of your skin has a unique ability to heal and to regenerate. We can use new technologies to trigger your skin’s unique ability to repair it-self. This enables you to look younger, with skin that is more smooth, supple, and clear. Most of these treatments do not involve surgery or downtime.
Lasers and light These technologies can be used to reduce:
- Unwanted hair
- Blood vessels
- Brown pigment spots
- Sun exposure
- Stretch marks
- Scars (including acne scars)
This is all done with little discomfort, without surgery, and without leaving new scars.
Radiofrequency technology is used for reducing cellulite and unwanted, as well as for tightening loose skin, and for effectively treating acne that was resistant to other medical treatments. This treatment is painless.
Botox Cosmetic. Injections can be used to reduce facial wrinkles and make you look years younger. These injections are done using very thin needles, so the discomfort is minimal.
Botox Therapeutic is also effective for treatment of migraine headaches, and for treatment of excessive sweating.
Fillers are a variety of substances that can be safely injected under your skin to fill defects, deep wrinkles and depressed scars, and to re-create facial contours lost with aging. By them-selves, or combined with other techniques such as Botox or laser treatments, fillers can be used to make you look years younger without the risks and discomforts of surgery.
Chemical Peels involve use of weak acids which can be brushed onto your skin for a strictly controlled time interval, and then neutralized or removed. This is used to safely dissolve the superficial layer of dead skin cells, thus stimulating deeper layers of skin to produce collagen and new cells, giving your skin a younger and more clear appearance. Acid peels are used for treatment of acne, to tighten skin pores, to decrease wrinkles, and to reduce skin blemishes.
Sclerotherapy involves injection of a sclerosant substance into a spider or varicose vein or other dilated vessel, to make it disappear. Other treatments would include mesotherapy, use of ultrasound and shockwaves, and, of course, a multitude of creams and cosmeceuticals. Of course, if all else fails, there may be more invasive surgical options. So, even though we can not stop the aging process yet, we can certainly slow down it’s appearance.
