FaceTite Vs. Liposuction: Choosing the Best Option

Previously, liposuction was often used to eliminate excess fat in the neck and chin area, which can often lead to a double chin or a chin waddle. Now there is a new technology that delivers results without the invasive procedure of liposuction. Here is what you need to know about the two treatments. 

What Is FaceTite? 

FaceTite is a new treatment option that is made possible by the InMode radiofrequency technology. FaceTite uses targeted fractional energy to penetrate the deep layers of tissue in the face. The fractional energy breaks down fat under the surface of the skin so that it can naturally and painlessly leave the area.  Continue reading “FaceTite Vs. Liposuction: Choosing the Best Option”

FaceTite Vs. Face Lift: Choosing the Best Option

If you have lost your defined jawline, have a double chin, or moderate to severe lines and wrinkles, you may have considered having a face lift. Now, there are new technologies that give the results of a mini face lift without the recovery or downtime. One of those technologies is FaceTite, and it has many advantages over a face lift. 

The Process 

A face lift is a surgical procedure that requires an operating room and staff, which can be costly and time consuming. You will spend weeks recovering, endure a higher risk of infection or serious nerve damage even if a facelift is done on an outpatient basis. The surgeon will make incisions to remove excess fat and skin as well as reposition muscle and nerves. This can sometimes cause scarring and requires a recovery process.  Continue reading “FaceTite Vs. Face Lift: Choosing the Best Option”

Morpheus and PRP: What They Are and Why They Work Together

Do you want younger, firmer-looking skin that shows fewer signs of aging? There are a lot of treatments available for different skin types and different types of skin blemishes, lines, and wrinkles. Morpheus is the latest in technological treatments that works well for any skin type and will greatly firm the skin and reduce the signs of aging. Here’s what you need to know about Morpheus and how PRP therapy can boost your results.

What Does Morpheus Do?

The Morpheus treatment combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to firm and tighten the skin and trigger the body’s own healing response. Your skin heals itself naturally, which you can see anytime you get a scrape or cut. But as you get older, your body’s ability to produce collagen and elastin, both of which keep skin wrinkle-free and firm, decreases naturally with age. This is what causes the lines and wrinkles to begin forming. The Morpheus treatment boosts the body’s own collagen and elastin production to improve skin on the face and neck.

Combining Morpheus with Facetite for Amazing Results

Up until the last decade, one of the only ways to get tighter, firmer skin on the face and neck could only be accomplished through a facelift or similar procedure. The last 10 years have seen a dramatic improvement in technologies and treatments for facial tightness and reducing the signs of aging. Recently, InMode introduced a new technology that produces the Morpheus and Facetite treatments. Learn more here about what these treatments are and how they can benefit you.

The Technology

InMode developed radiofrequency technology in a unique delivery system that allows for multiple types of treatments. The proprietary equipment is used in conjunction with a unique delivery wand that focuses RF energy into the deeper layers of the skin. The Morpheus treatment also includes microneedling in the treatment process, which has long been used to increase collagen production, which in turn tightens the skin and reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The Facetite treatment gives you a nonsurgical mini-face lift. Continue reading “Combining Morpheus with Facetite for Amazing Results”

Three Common Areas for Botox Injections

Botox is a wrinkle relaxer that helps eliminate and relax wrinkles with the use of a neurotoxin. Botox relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles through repetitive movements and contractions. When the muscles are relaxed, the skin has the opportunity to heal itself and reduce or eliminate wrinkles before the Botox wears off and muscles begin contracting again. There are three common areas for Botox injections.

Eyes

The area around the eyes can greatly benefit from Botox treatments. When Botox is injected around the eyes, it reduces the muscle movements that cause crow’s feet. Crow’s feet refer to the tiny lines that form around the eyes, and they are usually caused by frequent squinting or laughing or any movement that crinkles the eyes.

5 Juvederm Fillers and When to Use Them

This month we have a special on five Juvederm dermal fillers. Now is a great time to try these amazing age-defying treatments for yourself. But how do you choose which one to try? The five different fillers are used for different types of aging, and it is important that you choose the right one. Use the guide below to help you make your decision, or contact us for a consultation for assistance.

Juvederm Ultra

Juvederm Ultra contains the active ingredient hyaluronic acid, which is a component found in the skin naturally. It is mostly used to decrease lip lines, facial lines around the mouth, and to increase the fullness of lips. This dermal filler is great if you have lost a lot of volume in and around your lips causing wrinkles to form. Results last about one year.

Juvederm Ultra Plus

Juvederm Ultra Plus is also made with hyaluronic acid, but it is a thicker dermal filler that is great for reversing moderate to severe volume loss in the face. Sometimes as a person ages their body no longer produces the components necessary for healthy and full skin. This can cause volume loss in the face that can lead to deep lines and wrinkles. Juvederm Ultra Plus replaces that fullness and smooths out the lines that it caused. These results last about a year as well. Continue reading “5 Juvederm Fillers and When to Use Them”
