Now offering Sublative

As many of you know we have upgraded our Laser to the ElosPlus. One of the many benefits to upgrading to this laser is the new service that we can offer, Sublative. Which is the professional skin rejuvenation treatment and acne scar treatment.

For many of us, skin imperfections can impact self confidence. often, people considering facial rejuvenation procedures are inhibited by high cost, pain, downtime and side effects. Sublative skin treatments are an ideal solution! Sublative effectively targets the skin’s imperfections while offering the following advantages:

— Effective treatment for wrinkles and acne scars

— treatment in less than an hour

— Minimal downtime — Affordable

— Comfortable, non-surgical procedure

— Safe and effective on all skin types

Sublative is neither laser- nor light-based. instead, this one-of - a-kind technology uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency (RF), precisely directed to the skin in the form of a matrix. healthy skin around the matrix dots accelerates the healing process. Post treatment, new collagen and healthy skin cells are produced, reducing acne scars, mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations while creating smoother and more elastic skin texture.

What to expect:

For best results, expect 3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. the total number of sessions depends on your skin’s condition. Some patients report a warm, prickly sensation as energy enters their skin. Following treatment, a pink or red flush resembling a minor sunburn is common. Topical anesthetic ointments and cooling gels may be used to reduce discomfort during treatment.

What is Micro-needling?

Micro-needling is an incredible procedure to help the reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to give you younger looking skin with fewer signs of aging. This procedure can also have a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, dark spots, acne scars and stretch marks and create a fresher appearance or glow to the skin. 

Commonly Asked Questions:

What device do we use to perform this treatment?

We use the Eclipse MicroPen.

 

What parts of the body can this procedure be done on?

Eclipse MicroPen can be used on all parts of the body; face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. 

 

What does it feel like?

It feels similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others.

What is the downtime?

Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. On average, clients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.  

When will I see results?

Patients notice an immediate "glow" to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues. 

How many treatments are needed?

Some patients only require a single treatment, once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars we may recommend 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals. 

 

What is Dermaplaning?

We are excited to offer many new services at our NEW Derma location. One of which is Dermaplaning. You have heard the hype about this new treatment and may be wondering what it is and is it something you should do.

Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz).

What are the benefits of dermaplaning? This procedure helps increase the absorption of topical products and can immediately diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dermaplaning also primes your skin for a chemical peel. Thus, creating healthier and a more radiant appearance. 

Commonly asked questions:

Can you do this when you are pregnant or nursing? 

YES! This is actually something you can do when you are pregnant or nursing. This is great for pregnant or nursing women who want a deep exfoliation. We just wouldn't follow up with a peel.

Does it hurt?

No!

Can you do this procedure if you are on blood thinners?

Clients on blood thinners or those with uncontrolled diabetes should not have this procedure done. 

Can I go in to the sun after this treatment?

The skin will be more sensitive to the sun and other topical treatments after this procedure. Sunscreen MUST be worn for at least two weeks following the treatment.

Dr. McCann speaks more on Fillers..

 What else can we do with FILLERS?

We are still going with this series of blogs talking about fillers.  There so much we can do with them!  This time we are talking about WRINKLES.

Do you have a wrinkle or wrinkles that stubbornly won’t go away? Maybe you’ve tried Botox already, high quality skin care, laser, or a variety of other solutions and it just won’t budge!

Belotero is a filler, made of hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies, that is particularly soft and gentle. It is the perfect tool to fill in lines on the face that refuse to go away by other means.  The process involves injecting tiny bits of the filler directly under the line to lift it back up to the normal surface.

For example, some people have a particularly deep crease between their eyebrows, and even with Botox it won’t go away- Belotero!  Some people have “smokers line” (which are hereditary by the way) that are bothersome despite other measures- Belotero! Some people have deep lines going across their forehead that are not disappearing with Botox- Belotero!  Perhaps you have a scar on your face that really bothers you whenever you see it in the mirror- Belotero!!!!

This simple procedure can soften and reduce the appearance of lines and scars right before your eyes!  It lasts 6-9 months!!

Dr. McCann Speaks on Fillers

Hi Ya’ll! This is the second in a series of write ups I am doing about all the amazing things we can do with fillers.  I feel like most people out there don’t know what’s possible with fillers, and therefore don’t realize that we can change things that they thought they’d have to live with forever. So this week let’s talk about cheeks!

Over time, most of us feel we start to look more tired.  We notice drooping of the skin on either side of our nose, sagging or dark areas beneath the eyes, and an overall downward trend of the front of our faces! Say it ain’t so!   Much of this is due to the apple of our cheek sliding down the front of the face.  Literally the cheek is falling! This often contributes to loss of a soft rounded cheek, loss of the look of high cheekbones, and often increased drooping lower down on the face. Look in the mirror, yes, right now.  Just to either side of your nose, is it flat? Does it look better when you smile? Do you still have the soft rounded cheek of your youth? You may be experiencing this sliding phenomenon.  It’s quite common, and using fillers, this can be treated.

Using the fillers Radiesse or Voluma, we can add support and fullness to your cheek to lift it to a more youthful position.  This is only minimally uncomfortable and you see the effect right away!  There is usually minimal if any bruising, and only minimal swelling for a few days. Radiesse is a mineral based filler, and lasts for a whole year. Voluma is Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, a bit more expensive, but it lasts 2 YEARS!!!  The effect of this treatment is simply stunning.  Without making you look like a different person.  Look years younger in minutes.  It simply doesn’t get better than this!
