Non-Surgical Treatments for Aging Skin
By taking preventive actions, we can influence and slow the effects of “extrinsic aging” to our skin through environmental and lifestyle choices that can cause our skin to age prematurely. However, what we cannot change is the natural “intrinsic” aging process. Even though our genes largely control when these changes occur, everyone’s face will eventually show visible signs of aging due to decreased levels of estrogen, which leads to a reduction in the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in decreased blood flow with fewer nutrients reaching the epidermis, redistribution of fat, increased skin pigmentation in areas that have been exposed to UV rays, and a tendency towards inflammation.
Although your age and hormones are working against the youthfulness appearance of your face and skin, Premier Vein & Body offers non-invasive treatments that address the visible signs of aging, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Looseness or laxity of the skin
- Loss of fullness and volume leading to “hollows”
- Age spots and pigmentation
- Large pores
PICOSURE FOCUS LASER FACIAL
That smooth, filtered look you see on celebrities in real life is often the result of laser treatments. Although many laser treatments require days, if not weeks of downtime, our PicoSure Focus Laser Facial delivers short bursts of energy to bring a gentle warmth into the deep layers of the skin, targeting dark skin pigments and encouraging the body’s production of collagen and elastin. As these building blocks of healthy, smooth skin are rebuilt, the fine lines and deep creases will smooth. You will also notice an improvement with acne scarring, melasma, blemishes, pigmentation, large pores and sun damage without the discomfort, and downtime, associated with non-ablative and ablative laser treatments. Patients love the “Pico Glow”! Although some results will be noticeable after just one PicoSure Focus treatment, most patients require a series of 3 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart to see noticeable results, similar to results achieved through one ablative laser treatment.
Xeomin/Botox and Radiesse Liquid Facelift
The “liquid facelift” is one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures and, although results are only temporary, it is a great alternative to a surgical facelift, as it’s less expensive, has no downtime or risks, and provides almost immediate results! Dr. Craig Schwartz uses the dermal filler, Radiesse, along with Xeomin/Botox, to help plump, relax, and fill in the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, restore youthful volume to the face, reduce sagging of the skin, and re-contour drooping facial features or hollow eyes.
MIRApeel Resurfacing Treatment
This dermaplaning-meets-microneedling treatment Is the newest way to get skin that gleams and glows! MIRApeel fuses two unique technologies – wet abrasion (known as hydra-facial) and web microneedling into a single treatment. Initially, the top, outermost layers of skin are gently and safely abraded layer by layer with a specially designed razor-like head that can be dialed up or dialed down depending on how aggressive the treatment needs to be. At the same time, your skin is infused with the brand’s proprietary serums. 0.25-millimeter needles are then rolled across the skin with a flow of serums. The company calls it “wet micro-protrusion,” which is essentially microneedling, with the addition of a wet component (the use of serums with this treatment). According to MIRAMed, the company that makes MIRApeel, the tiny needles are effective because the tip gently glides over skin while firmly “adhering” to it thanks to vacuum power. Lastly, two types of LED lights are used on the skin to allow it to relax and calm down, followed by a soothing bio-cellulose face and décolleté mask. Although three to six weekly sessions, followed by quarterly maintenance, are recommended to see maximum results, the wet microneedling is the major point of distinction with this treatment. There’s an immediate ‘MIRAwow’ effect, without bleeding, raw skin or pain! Your skin will glow and appear refreshed directly after treatment!
