During this time of year, we can’t help but think about what’s to come. We also think about what has occurred in the previous months, and how the upcoming months will be different. After getting through a bustling holiday season, many people are ready for some pampering. What better way to do that than to visit your trusted dermatologist for a quick turnaround of your look?
Cosmetic Treatments for a Younger-Looking Face and Body
If you are interested in refreshing your look in some way but feel pressed for time (who doesn’t?), rest assured you only need about an hour or so to refresh, rejuvenate, and retain the beauty of your skin. You might be thinking, “I already know what Botox and dermal fillers can do and I’m not there yet.” Ok. We are aware that most people these days are well-informed about what injectables can do for their appearance, so we won’t go there. Here, we’ll focus on the lunchtime procedures that can make other types of impact on your look.
- This beauty treatment is powerful because it can improve several concerns at once. From fine lines to laxity to acne scars, microneedling is an efficient corrective-measure. Treatment works by stimulating activity in the fibroblast cells, which are responsible for producing collagen and elastin. For about a week after a single treatment, the skin looks radiant and smooth. With a series of treatments, more significant concerns can be corrected.
- Body-sculpting. Many people express an interest in either reducing waist circumference or getting rid of cellulite, sometimes both. With Velashape treatments, this is possible. During the brief appointment, patients lie comfortably beneath a radiofrequency applicator that delivers thermal energy deep into fatty tissue. The stimulation destroys fat cells and also tightens collagen fibers to improve both circumference and skin texture.
- The skin needs periodic pick-me-ups to maintain a smooth, radiant appearance. Microdermabrasion is a comfortable, no-downtime treatment that is done to remove the dead and damaged cells that have accumulated on the epidermis.
