3 Treatments to Try out This Year
It's the second month of the year! How are your resolutions coming along? Even if you didn't make any hard and fast goals for 2017, there is more than a small chance that you are riding the wave of "what's new." Most of us look forward to a new year with a bit of excitement about the unexpected. Here, we want to take a spin around some cosmetic treatments that are available in our Renton and Seattle dermatology offices. Maybe this is a great time to venture into the unknown and see how it can improve your appearance!
A Whole new way of Lifting the Face
Traditionally, the term "face lift" would mean going to a plastic surgeon and having your forehead, eyes, and lower face surgically tightened up. There's absolutely nothing wrong with this approach. Still, the large majority of patients we speak with would prefer to avoid surgery. Great! That gives us the opportunity to perform a "liquid facelift." Again, this term could lead to a misperception. For some time, the liquid facelift has been associated with the use of injectable solutions like dermal fillers and Botox. Not in our office. Our liquid facelift involves the recreation of facial contours using your fat cells. The win-win situation means losing some fat in an area like the midsection and gaining a more youthful facial aesthetic.
Not all age-related aesthetic concerns can be addressed in the same way. That's why we offer choices like Ultherapy. This treatment is a great choice for men and women who want to tone up the tissues just beneath the skin. One Ultherapy treatment leads to months of collagen production through which the skin becomes firmer, tighter, and younger-looking. It works by targeting collagen-producing cells with ultrasound energy, stimulating immediate constriction as well as progressive improvement in laxity.
Slow the Aging Process
Patients who have heard about BBL™ Forever Young are excited, and for a good reason. The use of broad-band light has demonstrated outstanding results over the long-term. Treatments are convenient and comfortable, making them an easy inclusion into your routine skin care regimen. According to research, the ongoing use of broad-band light changes the expression of genes so significantly that you can look younger over time, even as your biological clock keeps ticking.
