Three Benefits of Full Face Fraxel with PRP Massage

When you want to look and feel your best, you need to pamper yourself from time to time. Making your skin look amazing while getting some relaxation couldn’t be a better excuse for taking some time for yourself. Getting a full face Fraxel treatment followed by a PRP massage is one of the best ways to pamper yourself and your skin. Here are three benefits of this combination treatment.

Eliminate Skin Imperfections

Full face Fraxel treatment uses a small laser to direct energy into the skin, creating a pixelated pattern of micro marks in the skin. This stimulates the body to produce new healthier skin, which requires the body to produce collagen. Although you may not see results immediately, over the next few days up to a few weeks you will notice some of your skin imperfections healing themselves naturally and disappearing. Read More

Combining Juvederm Ultra and Botox for Optimum Results

Palm Harbor Medical Spa

Dermal fillers and Botox have been the gold standard for adding volume and reducing wrinkles for over a   decade, but have you considered using the two together? Combining Juvederm Ultra and Botox in one treatment session can give you some excellent results that you can’t achieve with one or the other alone.

What Juvederm Ultra Does 

Juvederm Ultra is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is appropriate for use in the cheeks, mouth, and lips. The dermal filler smooths out fine lines and wrinkles in the nasolabial folds (laugh or frown lines) and the lips and mouth. While the dermal filler plumps the skin to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in these areas, it does not prevent the lines and wrinkles from coming back but does help build collagen.  Results may vary but typically lasts for about a year.   Read More

Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin: Choosing the Right Treatment

If you have begun to see signs of aging, you might be wondering what you can do to turn back the clock. Most people have heard of Botox and its ability to erase lines and wrinkles on the forehead, brows, and eyes, but there are two other treatments available, Dysport and Xeomin, which should also be considered.

Similarities

Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin all work in much the same way. All three of these treatments use a neurotoxin called botulinum-A. This active ingredient relaxes the facial muscles that make repetitive folds of the skin, which in turn causes lines and wrinkles. By relaxing these muscles, the lines and wrinkles have an opportunity to heal themselves and become much less noticeable. The results of all three products are about the same, lasting about six months. Read More

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
