Achieve a More Youthful Appearance with FaceTite

Achieve a More YouthfulOftentimes, the lower face and neck are among the first areas to show signs of aging. Skin laxity and excess fat beneath the chin can contribute to an aging appearance, often leading to diminished confidence. 

If you’re struggling with signs of aging in the lower face and neck, FaceTite is a treatment option to consider. This non-surgical treatment utilizes radiofrequency energy to tighten loose skin and reduce unwanted volume for a rejuvenated look.

The targeted cells are then absorbed by the body, which results in a visible reduction in the volume of the treatment area; this makes FaceTite an excellent option for patients looking to eliminate a double chin or jowls.  Continue reading “Achieve a More Youthful Appearance with FaceTite”

Benefits of PDO Threads

PDOThe collagen and elasticity in our skin diminishes as we age which causes sagging and wrinkles. While skin aging is completely normal, it often causes people to feel less confident in how they look. There are many aesthetic treatment options available to improve signs of skin aging, one of which being PDO thread treatment. 

PDO threads are a cutting-edge treatment designed to promote tighter, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin. Let’s learn more about PDO threads and how they can give your skin a younger and more radiant appearance. 

How Do PDO Threads Work?

PDO (polydioxanone) threads are absorbable threads that work by stimulating the skin’s collagen production process.

Achieve Cellulite-Free Legs with QWO Treatment

Legs with QWO TreatmentIf you’ve noticed dimpled skin on your legs and buttocks, that means you are experiencing cellulite. This is a very common aesthetic concern that most often impacts women. Despite diet and exercise efforts, countless women struggle with cellulite and feel less confident as a result. Thankfully with the emergence of QWO, these women can finally achieve cellulite-free legs and buttocks. 

Why Does Cellulite Form?

The body stores fat in between the skin and muscle tissue. Fibrous tissue called septae connects the skin and muscle tissue together, and when fat deposits form, the septae continue to keep the skin and muscle attached. This is what creates the dimpled appearance of the skin known as cellulite. 

While medical conditions such as obesity and lymphedema can cause cellulite, it often forms without a known medical cause. This is especially true for women. In past years, treatment options for cellulite were often ineffective, expensive, and the results didn’t last for longer than three months. Now with the revolutionary QWO treatment, women can achieve lasting improvement to cellulite without invasive treatment.  Continue reading “Achieve Cellulite-Free Legs with QWO Treatment”

While Kybella is currently only approved by the FDA to target fat cells beneath the skin, it may be effective in other areas of the body. Here, we’ll discuss how Kybella can treat stubborn fat and help patients achieve a slimmer look. 

How Does Kybella Work?
