Ready or not, it seems as though summer has arrived. However, do not fret if you did not have time to prepare for the season; there is still time to get ready for long, warm days in the sun. A nonsurgical procedure from Boston Center for Plastic Surgery can get you out of the house, looking better and more refreshed than ever, without any downtime. Dr. Miller’s innovative techniques will take only a few minutes in the office, and can provide vibrant results that will last well into the fall. By creating a unique combination of noninvasive treatments, Dr. Miller can even help you postpone more invasive surgical procedures.
It seems as though smooth, lifted, youthful looks are on everyone’s wish list for 2016. Just take a peek at the top five nonsurgical procedures this summer:
- Botox Cosmetic:
For a smooth, relaxed appearance, the wrinkle-reducing benefits of Botox Cosmetic cannot be beat. The number one injectable in the world, Botox will temporarily paralyze targeted muscles, easing facial lines and eliminating wrinkles. Botox can reduce forehead creases, erase Frown Lines between the brows, and relax Crow’s Feet at the corners of the eyes. The injections take only a few minutes to apply and no downtime is required. The results from Botox are not immediate, however, and will take about two weeks to fully appear. The benefits of Botox Cosmetic will last for three months or longer.
Collagen is vital building block of healthy, taut tissue. ThermiSmooth uses gentle radiofrequency to restore tight, youthful skin by transferring heat to the deepest layers of tissue. ThermiSmooth’s energy safely stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen. For best results, a series of three treatments is necessary, each taking from 15-60 minutes. Results will slowly appear, as the collagen is restored, continuously improving over the next three to six months. ThermiSmooth is safe for most areas, successfully rejuvenating delicate skin under the eyes, around the mouth, forehead, cheeks, neck, and décolletage.
- Lip Augmentation:
Plump lips give the face a balanced, feminine appearance. The natural aging process can cause lips to become flat and unattractive. Using specially designed soft tissue fillers, created from hyaluronic acid, the lips will look instantly contoured and full. Depending on your individual needs, a variety of fillers are available, including Restylane, and Juvederm. Soft, plump, and natural-looking lips can be seen right away, immediately restoring confidence in the appearance. Repeat injections will be necessary in about six months.
Sun damage, smoking, weight fluctuations, and the normal effects of aging can cause our skin to lose its youthful elasticity. As tissues become lax, fine lines and wrinkles can add years onto the appearance. EndyMed is an innovative 3DEEP Facial Tightening treatment, using radiofrequency energy to smooth crepey lines on the face and neck. The deep, dermal heating process renews collagen production to provide long-lasting results. EndyMed procedures are comfortable, require no downtime, and can be custom tailored for multiple areas on the face, neck, and body. A series of up to six treatments may be recommended for best results, which can take several weeks to appear.
Get rid of stubborn, unwanted fat without painful surgery and a long recovery, with CoolSculpting. Using the cutting-edge science of Cryolipolysis, first discovered by Harvard scientists, CoolSculpting freezes away excess fatty tissue in only an hour. Fat that is unresponsive to diet and exercise, such as that on the abdomen, flanks, thighs, upper arms, and back, can melt away with CoolSculpting. Each treatment can see a 20% reduction in fat. While the benefits of CoolSculpting are permanent, they can take three to four months to become fully apparent.
