Cosmetic plastic surgery includes surgical and nonsurgical procedures that enhance and reshape structures of the body to improve appearance and confidence.
Fillers help diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. Common areas to inject fillers are in the face, neck, and hands, resulting in a fuller, smoother and more youthful appearance. Fillers can do the following: plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases and wrinkles, improve the appearance of recessed scars, reconstruct contour deformities in the face and decrease or remove the shadow of the lower lids.
Botox is a drug made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Doctors use it in small doses to treat health problems, including: temporary smoothing of facial wrinkles and improving your appearance; severe underarm sweating; cervical dystonia, blepharospasm; strabismus; chronic migraine; and overactive bladder. Botox injections work by weakening or paralyzing certain muscles or by blocking certain nerves. The effects last about three to twelve months, depending on what you are treating. The most common side effects are pain, swelling, or bruising at the injection site.
Body contouring removes stubborn fat and tones areas of your body that do not respond to diet and exercise. Body contouring procedures remove excess fat and tighten skin to provide people with a smooth and shapely silhouette. The result is a better-proportioned appearance with smoother contours.
Laser liposuction provides an alternative to traditional liposuction surgery. Lipolysis involves the introduction of a laser under the skin through a 1 mm incision to melt the fat and destroy fat cells. The laser coagulates the small blood vessels so that bruising is kept to a minimum. Skin tightening is performed at the same time to lessen wrinkly or sagging skin in problem areas. Complications are minimal and patients usually return to work the next day.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses laser energy to destroy the hair follicle, giving you longer lasting results than with shaving, waxing and other methods of hair removal. During a laser hair removal session, a special device is used to administer infrared energy to the treatment area. The sensation of laser hair removal is similar to snapping your skin with a rubber band. The results are immediate. Some of the hair may re-grow but with additional sessions, the hair will eventually stop growing.
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, non-invasive procedure that contours the body by delivering controlled cooling to specific areas, eliminating fat cells. When fat cells are exposed to cooling, it triggers a process of natural removal, which gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer. CoolSculpting treatments are painless and comfortable, each treatment takes about an hour. This is a good treatment for people with stubborn areas of fat such as love handles and muffin tops.
Often people can have areas, typically in the buttocks and upper thighs, where fat cells have clumped together, this is called cellulite. TriActive procedure uses a device that combines three therapeutic components to target and eliminate cellulite, so the skin is smooth and taut. The three components of TriActive cellulite treatment are: laser therapy, cooling therapy and massage therapy. Laser therapy stimulates the circulation of blood and resets the distance between fat cells and blood vessels. Cooling therapy decreases the amount of fluid retained in tissues. Massage therapy facilitates lymphatic drainage.
