Over time, techniques in plastic surgery have improved significantly. Many of the procedures that are commonly performed are safer and achieve much more natural-looking results (no more windblown facelift results!). However, there are people for whom cosmetic surgery is not the ideal solution to cosmetic woes. This is where recent innovations in aesthetic medicine can come into play. We love helping men and women in the Fresno area look younger without the hassle of cosmetic surgery.
Do you want maximum beauty with minimal intervention? Consider these treatments!
Chemical Peels And Microneedling
Chemical peels have become recognized as a type of spa treatment. However, we mustn’t forget that a chemical peel is a customizable exfoliating treatment that can permeate the skin more deeply if you want. We perform a variety of peels to meet our patients’ needs and preferences. Lighter peels are great for those who don’t want to live through days of flaking and peeling and who are interested in adding professional exfoliation to their usual skincare routine.
Microneedling is a step above the dermal rolling some people do at home. Dermal rolling can be beneficial for the skin, but, ouch! Even reaching only shallow depth, dermal rolling can be pretty uncomfortable. Microneedling is an automated procedure that is performed after the skin has been numbed with a topical anesthetic. Needles reach deeper beneath the surface, and, depending on your preference, may be powered by radiofrequency energy or platelet-rich plasma for maximum results.
Fat And Cellulite Reduction
Liposuction is still a great way to get a more sculpted body, but it’s definitely no longer the only way. Innovative systems used in our Fresno office include CoolSculpting and SculpSure. Each has a unique way of affecting fat, primarily cold versus heat. Because of this, the two actually make a great one-two punch against stubborn fat cells.
Fat reduction treatments help many people feel much better about their shape, but reducing fat doesn’t mean that cellulite will go away. That’s why treatments like Cellfina and Cellulaze exist. Cellfina works by releasing the bands that tether the skin to underlying tissue. Cellulaze is a laser treatment that melts the fat the pushes through fibrous bands while simultaneously thickening the skin to reduce the appearance of cellulite immediately.
