While you may be riding high on the good vibes of time with family and friends, you may also feel somewhat depleted. You might look it, as well, but you don't have to. Here, we discuss some simple ways that you can sail into the new year feeling like your best self.

PRP Skin Rejuvenation

You may have heard of PRP microneedling treatment and have some idea of its value as an anti-aging service. PRP, Platelet-rich plasma is the component of the blood that is high in platelets. Platelets are the cells that the body uses to help heal wounds. These cells are very healing and regenerative because they contain numerous beneficial growth factors and cytokines that help remodel tissue and support adequate collagen integrity. PRP can be applied to the skin after microneedling to enhance the healing effects of the creation of dozens of tiny channels in the skin. However, it can also be added to services like laser resurfacing and photorejuvenation.

Fat Transfer

The moment that research determined that a person's fat could be harvested and used for anti-aging benefits, the world of medicine was forever changed. Fat transfer is a two-step treatment process that we perform in the office using local anesthetic. The doctor harvests fat from an area such as the abdomen or thighs utilizing a conservative liposuction technique in which fat is captured directly into a sterile syringe. The fat is processed in a centrifuge to separate pure fat cells from blood and other fluid. These fat cells are then injected into areas of the face, such as the cheeks and temples, where volume is needed. As the treatment has become more familiar, more people are choosing fat transfer for long-lasting facial rejuvenation.

Body Contouring

We're at one of those critical points in the year when people are looking more closely at how they want to look. A few extra pounds can be more difficult to shed than we think, which is why procedures like liposuction continually rank among the most popular. Maybe you're not ready to take the step toward liposuction but you're thinking of ways to maximize your healthy diet and exercise habits. CoolSculpting is a proven body contouring treatment that can set you on the right path. One of the benefits of CoolSculpting is that a brief series of convenient treatment sessions can enhance the time and effort you're already putting into sculpting your best body. The process works naturally over time, which can help you sustain the motivation you need in the gym, on the mat, or in the kitchen.

Need a Quick Pick-Me-Up for Red Carpet Season?

Blepharoplasty Seattle WARed Carpet season has a way of encouraging us all to look at how we look. We may not be walking a rose-hued rug anytime soon, or ever, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t somewhat “on display.” Most people are well aware of what it means to put your best foot forward these days – it means to look your best and let your face do the talking. We often present ourselves in the image before uttering a word, so it pays to give the face some attention now and again.

As experienced dermatologists who treat patients in and around the Seattle and Renton areas, Drs. Reichel and Jacobson believe in well-rounded protocols to maintain healthy, beautiful skin. Obtaining a consultation with our team is a great way to understand what your skin needs on a daily basis, and how you can give it the quick pick-me-up it needs to boost your confidence right now. Some suggestions include:

Eyelid Rejuvenation

There are several ways to bring new life into the eyes. One is to schedule upper or lower blepharoplasty with one of our experienced doctors. In most cases, patients take baby steps toward their new look and first address undereye bags and dark circles with dermal fillers. One of the preferred fillers for the undereye area is BELOTERO BALANCE®, a hyaluronic acid product that has routinely achieved outstanding results on the delicate skin around the eyes.

Of course, eyelid rejuvenation may also involve BOTOX for the upper lid and brow area, and other filler products as needed to meet particular concerns. Finally, laser treatments may be performed on the eyes to boost collagen production. Keep in mind, though, that laser treatments may incur a short period of downtime due to redness and swelling.

Lip Rejuvenation

We forget about the appearance of the lips because we tend to look more at the eye and cheek area regarding signs of aging. However, lip rejuvenation has become a popular way for men and women to refresh their aesthetic. Lip rejuvenation, which is often achieved with JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC, isn’t just about adding volume to thin lips. This treatment can also address downturned corners of the mouth, a hallmark of facial aging that has historically been difficult to correct.

We understand what it takes to refresh the face and body. Learn more about our nonsurgical rejuvenating treatments at 206-859-5777.
