As we get into spring and summer, it’s time to start moving away from laser treatments and chemical peels, and more towards warm-weather friendly procedures! The best way to know what kind of procedure may be right for you during this time of year is to consult a professional, but some of my favorites are the Frozen C Cryotherapy Facial, Stem Cell Treatments, Injectables and Thread Lifts. Keep reading to learn more!
Frozen C Cryotherapy Facial
The Frozen C Cryotherapy Facial increases blood flow and causes a proliferation of available oxygen to revive tissues. It is exceptional for calming painful procedures (pre-op and post-op), reducing inflammation, redness and bruising, shortening downtime from procedures, reducing the appearance of large pores and smoothing skin tone and texture. It is fantastic for acne and rosacea as it is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. Treatment protocols include stand-alone sessions and complementary enhancements to procedures like micro needling, injections, and lasers.
Stem Cell Treatments
A new, popular treatment I’ve been loving for my patients is treatments with stem cells! For the skin, stem cell treatments are injected at specific facial points and include ingredients such as stem cells, growth factors, cytokines, hyaluronic acid, exosomes and other cellular products. Benefits can consist of the natural trigger of skin essentials, skin plumping and radiance enhancement, scarring reduction, improved skin texture and reduction in pore size. Skin cell treatments can also be applied to hair lines to help stimulate growth.
Botox is excellent for smoothing moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines and other unwanted wrinkles. It helps you look refreshed, more awake and younger. The great thing about Botox is that it is safe, with little to no downtime, and results typically show as soon as 2-3 days. It’s also safe to do in the spring and summer, although avoiding direct sunlight temporarily is recommended to ensure side effects are minimal.
One of my favorite treatments is the Nova Thread Lift! Whether alone or in conjunction with Sculptra and other fillers, the Nova Thread Lift has minimal downtime and powerful results. Tiny threads are inserted at different levels within the cheek and neck and then gently pulled upwards to lift unwanted sag and laxity of the facial tissue. The threads are cut, leaving you with a beautiful lift and hidden absorbable sutures. The Nova Thread Lift lifts, tightens and creates collagen over 4-8 weeks! Minimal bruising may occur, and there’s little to no downtime.
