TWO-TO-THREE MONTHS PRIOR TO EVENT: 

Fraxel Dual

Targets: • Face • Neck • Chest • Hands

Fraxel Dual, utilizes the two in one laser machine to treat unwanted signs of aging without breaking the skin. The 1550 laser is used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars, while the 1927 laser targets brown spots and freckles. After just a couple of monthly treatments with Fraxel Dual, your skin will appear more youthful, healthy, and smooth.

Thermage

Targets: • Face • Neck • Eyelids

Thermage tightens up tissue all over the body, including neck and eyelids. By using radiofrequency instead of scalpels, Thermage stimulates the production of natural collagen and a youthful, refreshed look, reducing jowls and dangling skin on the face, neck and eyelids.

IPL Photo Rejuvenation

Targets: • Face • Neck • Hands

IPL Photo Rejuvenation is a safe, non-invasive procedure that softens the appearance of aging skin by utilizing the science of light. Elight reduces redness and discoloration/age spots on the skin.

Isolaz Treatments

Targets: • Acne and discoloration from prior acne

Isolaz is the leading treatment in ridding your skin of acne, sun damage, and rosacea. Both quick and pain-free, the procedure combines a vacuum and laser treatment to deep clean your skin from the inside out. The pore-cleansing vacuum loosens and extracts excess dirt and oils deep within your skin, while the laser helps to destroy acne-causing bacteria and reduce facial redness. The procedure can be preformed over lunch-with no downtime. Following several treatments with Isolaz, your skin will appear radiant, clear, and healthy.

THREE-TO-FOUR WEEKS PRIOR TO EVENT:

Injectable Fillers

Targets: • Cheeks and jowls • Dark circles under eyes • Smoker’s lines around the mouth, thin ill-defined lips • Contour lines, folds, and wrinkles  • Hooked nose
As we grow older, our skin naturally begins to lose elasticity resulting in increasing wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage and other signs of aging. Injectable fillers are used to give you a more youthful appearance by adding volume to your skin.

Juvederm/Perlane

Juvederm/Perlane are FDA approved injectable fillers made of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the skin. Juvederm/Perlane are utilized to help smooth away unwanted wrinkles, plump up lips, restore volume to face, and to remove smile lines, nasolabial folds, and acne scars. These fillers provide a more natural-looking, youthful appearance, and your results will last up to one year.

Radiesse

Radiesse is another dermal filler that is utilized to add volume to your skin. Made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in water-based gel, Radiesse is unique because it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and support. Following injection of Radiesse, your body is stimulated to naturally produce new collagen-giving you an immediate and long-lasting improvement of fine lines, folds and wrinkles. Radiesse also provides facial volume, giving you a more natural and youthful look for a year or more.

Botox/Dysport

Targets: • Forehead lines • Glabellar frown lines  • Crow’s feet • Excessive sweating • Banded neck • Non-surgical eyebrow lift

Botox/Dysport are FDA-approved muscle-relaxing agents that smooth out your frown lines without surgery or recovery time. In 2010 alone, more than 5.3 million Botulinum treatments were preformed-and it’s not just for women. Botox/Dysport are best used when treating areas with substantial muscles, such as the 11 lines between the eyebrows. In about 5 to 7 days, your facial lines will fade to reveal a more youthful appearance, with results lasting up to 4 months.

Fraxel Repair

Targets: • Face • Neck • Chest • Hands

Fraxel re:store treatment is the gold standard for quickly rejuvenating your skin and correcting acne scars and other imperfections-all without impacting your daily routine. It uses laser technology to rejuvenate your skin from the inside out-leaving your skin fresh, beautiful, and looking more youthful. Fraxel re:store treatment has FDA clearances for:

  • Wrinkles around the eyes/fine wrinkles on face
  • Age spots/sunspots
  • Actinic Keratoses (precancerous lesions)
  • Coarse texture to skin

The procedure takes 20 to 25 minutes for a full face, and most people return to routine activities the very next day. Most men and women experience immediate results and see the most benefit in one to three treatments.

LAST MINUTE DECISIONS:

Even if your event is next week, you still have options. Here are some last minute procedures with little to no downtime-so if you are seeking quick results just in time for that rapidly approaching reunion or TV appearance, look no further!

Dysport

Targets: • Frown-lines (glabellar lines) between eyebrows  • Crow’s feet furrows  • 11 lines  • Non-surgical eyebrow lift

While Dysport is a procedure that can be preformed 3-4 weeks prior to your event, it is also ideal as a last-minute option. The FDA-approved formulation is injected between and above your eyebrows, temporarily reducing muscle activity and smoothing out frown lines. With just one treatment of Dysport (often preformed over your lunch break), your fine lines and wrinkles will be drastically reduced within 2-4 days following the procedure.

SilkPeel

Targets: • Facial wrinkles

SilkPeel is a simple, non-invasive procedure that works in conjunction with Microdermabrasion to exfoliate skin and stimulate new cell growth. SilkPeel leaves your skin smoother-allowing makeup to be applied more evenly. Treatment typically takes 20 minutes. After the procedure, your skin will be softer, and looking healthy and more refreshed. Make up will go on more evenly and your skin will have a healthy glow.

Dilute Steroid Injection

Targets: • Acne cysts 

Acne cysts deep in your skin can be painful. If you want an overnight fix for your acne cysts, consider coming in for a steroid injection. An injection of cortisone, a chemical that is released naturally in the human body in response to inflammation, provides fast and painless relief from cystic acne-reducing swelling and healing the lesions overnight. With an injection of cortisone into your acne cyst, healing will begin immediately and you will notice a difference in your skin the following day.
