How Fraxel Facial Treatments Restore Summer Skin

Largo RadiesseThe skin can be severely damaged during the summer months. Most people are spending more time outdoors in the summertime, and sun exposure can do a number on your skin. You might have new skin blemishes from sun exposure, or you might have some new lines and wrinkles that have formed in the sun. In any case, Fraxel laser treatments can be very beneficial in reversing the damage done to your skin over the summer.

What Is Fraxel?

Fraxel laser therapy is a noninvasive laser treatment. It targets the deep layers of the skin and creates tiny microthermal zones similar to pixels on a television screen. This treatment stimulates the skin’s natural healing abilities and sends collagen and other nutrients to the area. Read More

Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport: Choosing the Right Neurotoxin Injection

When you are just starting to see the signs of aging, it can be confusing looking at all of the available anti-aging treatments. One of the go-to treatments for those just starting to see lines and wrinkles are neurotoxin injections such as Botox. While Botox is well known in the cosmetic world, its two competitors are not as well known. Here are the differences between them and how to choose the right one for you.

What They Are

All three of these injectables—Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin—have the same active ingredient. All three of these injectables use a neurotoxin to completely relax the muscles in the targeted area. The relaxation of the muscles lasts some time, which gives the skin a chance to recover while the folding of the skin is not occurring. Read More

Radiofrequency to Help Jowls

Have you noticed a sagging of your jowls as you age? The natural aging process means that your body’s production of collagen and elastin decreases. This combined with genetics, diet, exercise habits, and other factors can lead to sagging of the skin around the jowls. You may notice that your cheeks lose volume while the skin seems to slide downward. You may also notice that you have deep nasolabial folds, a double chin, or other features of unattractive jowls that can make you look much older. Now there is a treatment that specifically addresses these issues.

How Radiofrequency Works

Radiofrequency treatments are now available to firm and tighten the skin around the jowls to eliminate deep folds, double chins, and firm and tighten skin to take years off of your appearance. The radiofrequency energy is directed beneath the skin using small probes. This thermal heating of the skin prompts the reversal of skin laxity, or the ability of the skin to be tight and firm.

What is ThermiTight, and How Can It Help?

Have you noticed that your skin is not as tight and firm as it once was? This is called skin laxity, and it is caused by a combination of factors including the natural process of aging, genetics, diet, and exercise. While there are a number of treatments that can tighten and firm the skin, few of them are long lasting or noninvasive. If you are determined to have tighter skin but want to avoid surgical measures, ThermiTight can be the perfect solution.

What is ThermiTight?

ThermiTight is a treatment during which thermal energy is delivered underneath the skin to reverse skin laxity. A tiny probe is placed under the skin that applies radioactive energy to the targeted area. The tissues in the treatment area shrink when they are hit with the energy pulse. It is a painless and simple procedure that is minimally invasive with amazing results. Read More

Why Facials Aren’t Just for Women

You probably know women who get routine facials as a pampering afternoon for themselves, but facials have a lot of benefits other than just being a relaxing escape. Facials can greatly benefit everyone — men, women, and teens. There are a lot of reasons that you should be getting a regular facial to protect your skin.

Decrease Breakouts

Later in life, men have a much harder time with acne breakouts than women. Middle-aged men have as many acne problems as teenagers, in some cases. This is due to the changes in hormones as you age. Getting regular facials will help keep your skin clean, exfoliated, and oil free. And your pores will be unclogged, so that breakouts are decreased or stopped altogether. There are specific facial treatments for oily or acne prone skin, and these are the treatments you should consider if you have this issue. Read More

Three Benefits of Dysport for Men

Too many people consider Dysport to be only for women, but there are several benefits of Dysport for men, as well. Like women, men are also concerned about aging and their appearance. The most common areas for men to treat with Dysport are forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines. Dysport uses the same neurotoxin found in Botox to relax facial muscles and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Here are three benefits of Dysport for men.

Subtle Improvements

Dysport allows for subtle improvements to your appearance without feminizing your look. Other products such as Botox and Xeomin are more likely to produce dramatic and sometimes feminine results, yet Dysport makes only subtle changes that improve your appearance without really making a dramatic change. People will notice that you look younger, but they might not be able to pinpoint why. Read More

Lose Your Double Chin Without Surgery

You no longer have to suffer with a double chin, disliking your appearance. There is a treatment available that eliminates a double chin without surgery. Learn more about this treatment and how it can help.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an injectable that dissolves excess fat under and in the chin. The active ingredient of Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is the same natural compound that the body produces and uses to break down fat cells. Because this is a compound that is naturally produced by the body, it is generally deemed completely safe and has few if any side effects. Read More
