09 Jan Top Aesthetic Services for 2020
Ring in the New Year and new decade looking and feeling your best with Spectrum Dermatology’s suite of aesthetic treatments. As you begin your New Year’s resolutions, you might find that you don’t have as much time as you’d like, and one dreaded chore that takes thousands of hours of our life is shaving. Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a treatment that drastically minimizes hair growth anywhere on the body and it can also be used to minimize hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and veins. Suitable for both men and women, a few sessions of IPL can help you feel like you have more hours in the day.
IPL works by delivering a powerful, visible pulse of light to the target area. Filters are used to help control the damaging wavelengths, including UV light, and the exact specifications will depend on you and your goals. IPL uses a combination of light and heat to treat the target area, and it’s the ability to use a broad spectrum instead of a single light that helps IPL treat multiple conditions. Your expert aesthetician will work with you to determine your skin goals so that you enjoy optimal results.
Botox and More
Botox remains one of the most popular cosmetic dermatology treatments for a good reason. It’s fast, effective, and works at both stopping and preventing fine lines and wrinkles. Neurotoxins temporarily freeze certain muscles to stop wrinkles from being formed. Some of the most common treatment areas are the forehead, between the eyebrows, and at the “marionette lines” between the mouth and nose.
However, Botox can do much more than stop wrinkles. It’s also an effective tool for reducing migraines, and has allowed many people to reduce or eliminate headache medications from their life. Botox is also a great option for reducing unwanted sweat and can be injected in many areas of the body to help in reducing excessive sweating. However, one of our most recent additions to our cosmetic suite can be even more effective at stopping sweating—and this time, it’s for good.
MiraDry for Hyperhidrosis
The technical term for excessive sweating is hyperhidrosis, and millions of people struggle with it. Sweating is important, but only in moderate quantities. If you sweat too much, it’s not doing your health (or your life) any favors. Too much sweat can damage clothes, decrease your self-esteem, and stop you from advancing relationships or career goals. There’s no benefit to excessive sweating, and now you have an option to stop it permanently.
MiraDry is a non-invasive procedure that uses a handheld device that targets sweat glands with microwave therapy. When sweat glands are destroyed, they’re gone forever. You can banish sweating of the palms, excessive sweating in the armpits, or just about anywhere else that sweat is unwanted. The results are immediate, which means your confidence is also immediately restored.
There are a number of dermal fillers on the market, and we proudly offer all of the most effective and natural-looking options to achieve your goals. Most dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which already occurs naturally in the body. They dissolve and are safely absorbed over time, and can last anywhere from six months to two years, depending on the type of filler you choose.
Different dermal fillers are meant for various parts of the body, including the cheeks, lips, under the eyes, and even the backs of the hands. We naturally lose desirable fat as we age, which is what leads to sunken cheeks and hollow under-eye areas. Fat isn’t necessarily evenly distributed, and losing “baby fat” can be one of the first signs of aging.
Fortunately, we can turn back the clock by restoring lost volume in key areas. This allows for customized contouring of the face in a completely personalized treatment. You can choose a dermal filler that doesn’t last quite as long to test out a new look or opt for a semi-permanent solution when you already know you love the results. The skill of the aesthetician is just as important as the quality of the dermal filler itself, and the experience available at a dermatology clinic is simply superior to what you often find at MediSpas.
