The Big Benefits of Microneedling

Thursday, August 31st, 2017

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that helps minimize the signs of aging, improve the appearance of acne scars, reduce large pores and uneven skin texture, and overall rejuvenate the skin.  We perform microneedling with SkinPen, a medical-grade, state-of-the-art microneedling tool available only through medical professionals. Microneedling results in skin remodeling and effects the process of collagen and elastin formation, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin. The outcome is beautiful, youthful-looking skin.

Cool News for CoolSculpting Fans

Friday, August 25th, 2017

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive way to contour your body by freezing away unwanted fat. The CoolSculpting procedure works by delivering controlled cooling that targets the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unaffected. The treated fat cells are crystalized (frozen), causing natural cell elimination. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you. This innovative technology has been recently upgraded to offer shorter treatment time and greater patient comfort. With a wide range of applicators optimized to fit different body shapes and sizes, more areas are now treatable.

Treatment areas include:

  • Under the chin
  • Abdomen
  • Bra fat
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Arms
  • Hips
  • Waist
  • Flanks
  • Muffin top
  • Axilla puff
  • Knees
  • Back fat
