Non-Surgical Procedures

We realize that surgery is not the right answer for everyone, and the truth is that using non-surgical treatments as a preventative measure can both delay the need for surgery and dramatically improve surgical results.

Fortunately, we have many cutting edge non-surgical treatment options that offer results that could never have been achieved before without surgical options.

One of the most common questions we get in our practice is "What do I need to get done?" While this seems like a simple question, the truth is that lot's of patients are concerned about lots of different things. In fact, most of our patients are with us for life and they often have many surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures over time.

Ultimately, most patients have concerns about sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, red spots and/or brown spots on the skin, complexion issues, veins, cellulite, laser vaginal tightening/rejuvenation, and hair loss. The great news is that all of these things can be treated very effectively without surgery. This page will help you better understand the kinds of non-surgical treatments that are available in our practice, as well as give you a better understanding of the concerns that can be addressed with these procedures.

Neurotoxins

Neurotoxins are most commonly used for treating fine lines around the eyes and forehead. Results set in over 3 to 5 days, and generally last 3 - 6 months. Patients commonly use neurotoxins beginning as early as 25 years old, and continue use through their lifetime. Neurotoxins can also be injected in the under arms and other areas to reduce sweating.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are used for treating deeper lines and folds in the skin around the mouth, in the lips, cheeks, hands, and even to redefine the jaw line. Results are seen immediately, and can last anywhere between 9 - 12 months. Patients commonly use dermal fillers beginning as early as 30 years old, and continue use through their lifetime.

Ultherapy

Ultherapy uses ultrasound to stimulate new collagen production in the skin's foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of the tissue over 2-3 months. The treatment jumpstarts the natural process, known as neocollagenesis, which produces collagen. Ultherapy is actually the only FDA-cleared procedure to non-invasively lift the eyebrow, neck, under-chin, and to improve décolletage lines and wrinkles. Ultherapy is also the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA to actually lift skin. Face and neck procedures typically take 60-90 minutes, and chest treatments can be completed in as little as 30 minutes.

PRP

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a concentrated blood sample that contains high levels of platelets, a critical component of the wound healing process. Platelets contain growth factors that are responsible for stimulating tissue generation and repair. Growth factors derived from platelets are responsible for soft tissue repair, bone regeneration, development of new blood vessels, and stimulation of the wound healing process.

Cellfina

Cellfina is an FDA-cleared, minimally invasive, one-time procedure that is clinically proven to treat the primary structural cause of cellulite for results lasting three years or longer. Cellfina™ treats the primary structural cause of cellulite for a smooth and healthy look that gives patients the confidence wear a bathing suit and higher hemlines.

Kybella

KYBELLA® is an injectable medication used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”, is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.

Laser Genesis

Genesis is a gentle, but effective laser treatment that sets the gold standard for treating redness. Genesis also targets excess redness, large pores, uneven skin texture, and fine lines and wrinkles. There is minimal discomfort with treatment and only a small amount of temporary redness and swelling after the treatment, so there is no real downtime. A series of 3-4 treatments is recommended for the best result, and results from treatment will continue to improve for several months due to collagen production in the skin.

Limelight

This IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment addresses uneven pigmentation, redness, sun damage, and surface imperfections on the face and upper body, including the neck, chest, arms, and hands. The treatment takes less than one hour (including time to apply numbing cream, if desired). Dark spots will temporarily darken and then flake off, with improvement in skin within 1-2 weeks and the full benefit after a few months.

Cutera’s Titan Laser technology lifts and tightens sagging skin and jowls without the downtime and risks of surgery. We often use Titan laser treatment in combination with other procedures and medical-grade products as part of a non-surgical facial rejuvenation.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a fairly quick microinjection procedure that does not require any pain medication or anesthesia. Abnormal veins are treated by injecting a solution called a sclerosant, sealing the vein off from the rest of the vein network in your leg, allowing the body to naturally redirect the blood flow to healthy veins.
