Botox is a FDA approved product, comprised of the bacteria that causes Botulism. When Botox is injected directly into the target muscle, it causes weakness or paralysis, temporarily blocking the nerve activity of that muscle, creating a smooth and youthful appearance. Botox is used to improve the appearance of mild, moderate or severe facial wrinkles. Botox can help improve frown-lines, forehead lines and crows-feet. Botox is a minimally invasive procedure that takes less than half an hour to complete and requires no downtime. Botox takes 7-10 days to see improvements. Results from Botox injections may last between 3-4 months; However, individual results may vary.
Dysport is a FDA approved cosmetic product, comprised of botulinum toxin “Type A” that is used to improve the appearance of mild, moderate or severe facial lines and wrinkles. When Dysport is injected into a targeted muscle, it causes paralysis or weakness, temporarily blocking the nerve activity of that muscle, easing or eliminating dynamic facial wrinkles or lines. Dysport can help improve crows-feet, frown lines and forehead lines. Dysport is a minimally invasive treatment that takes less than half an hour to complete. The effects of Dysport have been reported to appear faster than Botox. Improvements can be seen between 4-10 days. Results from Dysport injections may last between 3-4 months; However individual results may vary.
Dermal fillers are FDA approved cosmetic injectables, comprised of Hyaluronic acid gel. When Dermal filler is injected into facial tissue, it smooths facial folds, plumps the skin, replenishes volume loss, stimulates collagen and increases hydration for a more rejuvenated, restored and youthful appearance.
The Infini is a high intensity focused, radio-frequency, fractional micro-needling system, that delivers radio-frequency through insulated micro-needles. The Infini treatment allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin, which triggers new collagen synthesis, while Radio-frequency tightens the skin. The Infini improves the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles, overall texture of the skin. The infini is an invasive treatment that typically takes 2 hours. 3-4 days of downtime is required for this treatment, and results are seen within 7-14 days; However individual results may vary. The Infini can treat the face and neck, legs, arms and more.
The Sublative™ RF applicator is designed to deliver radiofrequency energy to the skin in a fractional manner, via an array of multi-electrode pins. The array delivers bipolar RF energy to the skin. Microscopic zones of epidermis and dermis are thermally ablated in a grid over the skin surface, where non-ablated zones serve as a reservoir of cells that promote rapid healing. The Sublative RF applicator is proven to reduce moderate to severe acne scars on all skin types, tighten skin, improve texture and tone, correct hyperpigmentation and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. 3-4 days of downtime is required for this treatment, and results are seen within 7-14 days; However individual results may vary. The Infini can treat the face and neck, check and more.
Micro-needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) allows for a controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin, which triggers new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose a significant risk for permanent scarring. Micro-needling is utilized to treat the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, minor trauma scars, hypo/hyperpigmentation, and improving the skin’s overall appearance. Additionally, since micro-needling creates superficial micro-channels, the procedure may be combined with the use of PRP, topical gels, creams, and/or serums to further aid in the overall appearance of theskin. Downtime is minimal and the procedure is normally completed within 30-60 minutes depending on the required treatment and anatomical site. Micro-needling can be performed virtually on any area of the body, but is commonly used on the face, neck and chest.
Chemical peels are a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment, designed to improve hyperpigmentation, skin laxity, uneven skin texture and tone, acne, scaring, and fine lines. Chemical peels can be performed virtually on any area of the body, but are most commonly used on the face, neck and chest. SkinTight Aesthetics offers a variety of mild-moderate chemical peels such as the VI peel, Jessners peel, Cosemelan and more. Chemical peels require
downtime, so call today to schedule a complimentary consultation and for more information.
CO2 FRACTIONAL LASER
The co2 Fractional resurfacing laser is a FDA approved carbon dioxide laser which precisely removes deep outer layers of damaged skin and stimulates the regeneration of healthy skin underneath. The laser light is applied using Micro Ablative Columns, where the depth of the penetration can be controlled to remove variable amounts of tissue for a number of treatment indications including, fine to moderately deep wrinkles, photo-damage, scarring, skin tone, texture and laxity. During a co2 laser skin resurfacing treatment, topical and/or local anesthetic is used to relieve potential discomfort. The Co2 laser is an invasive treatment that requires 7-10 days of downtime; However, healing time varies. Most patients will obtain significant improvement after a single treatment while other may need additional treatments to achieve optimal results.
