Rejuvenate Your Skin
Nonsurgical treatments can be used as a stand alone treatment or in conjunction with surgical treatments to augment surgical results. Below is a list of nonsurgical treatments that we have found through experience to achieve excellent results on a reliable and safe basis for our patients.
A temporary non-surgical treatment used to smooth out facial wrinkles, lines and scars.
Over time, emotional expressions such as smiling, laughing and frowning can cause wrinkles in the skin overlying the facial muscles. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections block the nerve impulses that cause these facial muscles to contract. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are used to improve the appearance of worry lines, laugh lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, and other wrinkles associated with an animated face. These treatments last approximately 3 to 4 months.*
The procedure relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles so they do not contract. The treatment requires 15 minutes with no need for a recovery period. Patients can return to work or social activities immediately.
Fillers are utilized to add volume to the skin or subcutaneous tissue. We use hyaluronic acid products as fillers to fill superficial wrinkles, deep wrinkles, folds, or areas of the face that lose volume with aging. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar molecule that is found in skin and joints and binds collagen fibers. As we age, there is a significant reduction in hyaluronic acid. By the time we are 50 years old there is a 50% reduction in hyaluronic acid. The advantage of using this to fill the skin and subcutaneous tissue is that it is bio identical and also is reversible if there is a need to remove the product. There are many different products in the hyaluronic acid portfolio that are used as fillers. These products differ in the degree of viscosity, ability to shape or mold, and the ability for the product to diffuse into the surrounding areas. Significant experience is necessary to understand how to use each of these products optimally.
Juvéderm Voluma XC
Introducing a lift that is instant and long lasting! Voluma adds volume to the cheek area to help enhance, contour and create a more youthful profile. Treatment lasts up to two years.*
As you age, your skin changes. For example, it reduces production of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). Over time, the loss of HA in your skin results in facial wrinkles and folds, like those “parentheses” lines around your mouth.*
Juvéderm injectable gel replaces the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds. A breakthrough in HA gel and the only HA filler that’s FDA approved to last up to a year! You can experience the benefits of JUVÉDERM® injectable gel in a quick, in-office procedure. Dr. Rubach eases JUVÉDERM® under your skin to instantly smooth out the wrinkles and folds on your face. You’ll see the difference immediately!*
Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps replace lost collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades. As we age, we lose volume throughout the face. This gives a tired deflated look just like when a balloon loses its volume and loses its shape. Sculptra volumizes an entire area and restores back a youthful look by replacing lost collagen.*
Currently there is a demand for patients seeking small adjustments to body contour in areas that have been previously hard to treat. ThermiTight differs from current radio-frequency technologies that treat the surface of the skin. Instead, a tiny radio- frequency probe delivers the prescribed dose of safe RF energy beneath the skin. This not only tightens the skin but also contours the treatment area through selective fat reduction. The end result is an improvement in contour and tightening of the skin in the treatment area.*
CoolSculpting is the coolest, most innovative, non-surgical way to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat. This revolutionary technology targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges.*
