How can I reduce the appearance of scars?

Do you have unsightly scars that make you feel embarrassed or frustrated? You’re not alone. Scars are a common skin problem, so people are always interested in finding out how to reduce or minimize their appearance. While there are many different scar reduction treatments out there, the BBL Broad Band Light by Sciton and the Halo Pro can reduce scars quickly and effectively.

BBL Broad Band Light scar treatment
BBL Broad Band Light is a light-based treatment that rejuvenates damaged skin using various wavelengths of light energy. It can be used to improve the appearance of various types of scars including acne scars, surgical scars, and hypertrophic scars.

BBL emits a broad spectrum of light that penetrates the skin, heats the tissue layers, and stimulates the production of collagen. The additional collagen that is generated helps to reduce the appearance of scars.

Halo Pro scar treatment
The Halo Pro is a hybrid fractional laser that combines ablative and non-ablative technology in a single procedure, to effectively resurface the skin with minimal downtime. The fractional treatment creates micro-injury points in the skin, while leaving the surrounding areas intact.

The stimulating effect of the Halo Pro triggers the body’s natural healing process, and this rejuvenates the skin by replacing old, damaged skin cells with new, clearer skin cells. Halo Pro also increases collagen production, which helps to resolve textural issues, thereby reducing the appearance of scars.

A combination BBL-Halo Pro treatment is sometimes needed for optimal scar treatment.

How can I get rid of the lines around my mouth?

How can I get rid of the lines around my mouth?

Are you starting to get fine lines around your mouth? It’s a good idea to treat them early, because they will only deepen over time. Deep lines around the mouth occur naturally with age, and can make you look older than you are. But how can you get rid of those lines around your mouth.

What causes ‘smile lines?’
Lines around the mouth are often referred to as smile lines or laugh lines. It’s unfortunate that the act of smiling which makes you feel good and lifts your mood can cause wrinkles to develop. These lines typically form as a result of the repetitive muscle movement involved in smiling, age, and excess sun exposure.

How can I get rid of the lines around my mouth?
If you want to reduce the appearance of lines around your mouth, consider Juvederm Ultra Plus XC. It is an easy, fast treatment that produces immediate, long-lasting results.

Juvederm Ultra Plus is a smooth dermal filler that is made from cross-linked hyaluronic acid (HA) particles. HA is a component that occurs naturally in the skin, and provides it with essential moisture.

How it works
A tiny needle is used to inject Juvederm Ultra into the skin. Since HA has the ability to attract and retain large volumes of water molecules, it has a plumping effect on the skin that fills in smile lines, so they appear softer and smoother.

The results of Juvederm Ultra lasts for about 12 months, so follow up treatments will have to be schedule to maintain results.

Is there a non-surgical Brazilian Butt Lift?

Is there a non-surgical Brazilian Butt Lift?

When the Brazilian butt lift came along women wanting to improve the appearance of their buttocks, were happy to have an alternative to synthetic implants. But since that time the demand for non-surgical cosmetic treatments has been increasing, but is there also a non-surgical Brazilian butt lift.

What is a Brazilian butt lift?
A Brazilian butt lift is a procedure that uses unwanted fat from other parts of the body to add volume, and change the shape of the buttocks. The fat is extracted using a specialized liposuction technique and is purified, before being injected into the buttocks.

Is there a non-surgical Brazilian Butt lift
Yes there is, and it’s actually a fast rising non-surgical cosmetic procedure. The non-surgical Brazilian butt lift represents the latest innovation in butt augmentation. It uses Sculptra, which is a long lasting dermal filler, to give the buttocks a fuller look.

Sculptra is a dermal filler that is derived from poly-l-lactic acid (PLLA), and is ordinarily used to correct facial wrinkles. It is a volumizing filler that stimulates the body’s collagen production.

How the non-surgical Brazilian butt lift works
The area is first injected with a local anesthetic, and after the area is numbed the physician will use a very fine needle to inject the filler into the buttocks. The number of treatments needed will depend on the level of augmentation desired. Results can be seen about 3 weeks after treatment and can last up to 2 years.

The non-surgical Brazilian butt lift is a good option for patients that don’t have enough fat to perform a traditional Brazilian butt lift.

How should I prepare for my chemical peel?

How should I prepare for my chemical peel?

Would you like to bring back your skin’s natural glow? A chemical peel is a great way to boost skin health, and restore a radiant complexion. However, in order to get optimal results from a chemical peel and reduce potential risks, it’s necessary to prepare the skin ahead of time. But just how should you prepare for your chemical peel.

What is a chemical peel
A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment that improves the quality and appearance of the skin. Chemical peels are typically used on the face, neck, and hands. During a peel a chemical solution is applied to the skin, to exfoliate the damaged outermost layers. The skin eventually peels away to reveal younger, smoother- looking skin.

Chemical peels improve the overall tone and texture of the skin and treat a variety of skin concerns including wrinkles, fine lines, brown spots, melasma, and acne scars.

How to prepare for your chemical peel
If you would like to get the best possible results from your chemical peel, the following pre-procedure steps are recommended.

  • Avoid shaving or waxing your skin or undergoing laser hair removal in the days prior to a chemical peel, as these treatments can make the skin more sensitive. Injectable treatments such as botox should also be avoided.
  • Stop using retinoids as they can strip the skin, and possibly exaggerate the results of the peel.
  • Use products with soothing ingredients that will keep the skin hydrated, calm, and balanced.

How many CoolSculpting treatments will I need?

How many CoolSculpting treatments will I need?

If you’re considering CoolSculpting fat reduction you’re probably eager to find out how many treatments you will need to see results. The number of treatments needed will be influenced by the type of results you want, so it’s not going to be the same for every patient.

CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction system that uses controlled cooling to freeze and kill fat cells. It reduces areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting can be used to treat the abdomen, flanks, bra fat, back fat, inner and outer thighs, and under the chin.

There is generally some swelling and bruising after CoolSculpting treatment, but this does not stop patients from going about their daily routine.

How many CoolSculpting treatments will you need?
Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting should be within 10-20 pounds of their ideal weight. Patients near their goal weight generally only need one round of treatment to achieve the desired improvement in body contours, as a single session reduces fat in the treated area by 20-25%. This level of reduction can significantly reduce stubborn bulges, but if you would like even more improvement in the same area another treatment may be required.

CoolSculpting treatments are spaced about 4-6 weeks apart. This is necessary to give the body time to dispose of the fat cells from the previous treatment (click here to learn more).

CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution and is not meant to reduce large pockets of fat, as it targets specific problem areas.

Can men get Botox?

Can men get Botox?

Botox is the ultimate wrinkle smoother, and it’s the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic treatment. It’s the perfect way to smooth out the lines and wrinkles on your face, and slow signs of aging. Botox is used by housewives, working women, and celebrities … even millennials are getting botox. But can men get botox.

What is botox and what does it do?
Botox or botulinum toxin type A is an injectable drug that targets wrinkles around the eyes, and on the forehead. When injected into the muscles, botox temporarily blocks the nerve signals, and this prevents the muscles from contracting. Consequently, the wrinkles soften, resulting in a more youthful look.

Can men get Botox?
Botox isn’t just for women. Men can and do get botox. In fact, botox use has been rising among men, and the trend has become so popular it’s been nicknamed ‘brotox.’ Many physicians report that they are getting a lot of enquires about botox from male clients.

Why men are getting botox
Men are taking their appearance more seriously than before, and they’re using botox to refresh their physical appearance to help maintain a competitive edge in today’s challenging job market. They are therefore getting botox to remove those deep frown lines and crow’s feet.

Botox is an attractive procedure for men because it is quick and easy. It only takes 15-20 minutes to perform, so they can schedule botox treatment during their lunchtime. Also, there is no downtime, and they can see their results within 5-7 days.
