Alternatives to Injectables

Medical aesthetics offer lasers and treatments that address the texture, appearance, and firmness of the skin. When a potential client comes in, we will look at all of the services we offer, and create a plan that is specific to the individual’s goal. Some would prefer not to do injectables, others prefer only injectables, and some do both. No matter the choice, it is a process requiring follow up treatments and cost. It is important to know that aesthetics is not plastic surgery.

 

Alternatives to injectables

Some of the alternatives to injectables that we offer target collagen. In our skin the middle layer is where collagen and other cells or proteins, like elastin, work together to create connective tissue that lets new skin cells grow. Collagen works to keep your skin looking fresh and young by promoting regeneration of the top layer and restoring dead skin cells. As we age, our bodies naturally produce less collagen, so by targeting the collagen we can improve our skin.

 

Eurothreads

Eurothreads are resorbable surgical sutures composed of biodegradable polymers. The treatment is minimally invasive and produces instant results. Polydioxanone (PDO) sutures are used for biomedical applications, particularly in cardiothoracic surgery because they are fully absorbed by hydrolysis within 4 to 6 months and do not create any scar tissue. The foreign body stimulates collagen synthesis and the skin structure created will hold for 12 to 15 months. Eurothreads are typically used for facelifts, but can also be used for brow lifts and neck lifts.

 

Microneedling

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns via collagen production. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment may help those looking to reduce the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks. It is also used in certain anti-aging procedures, such as eyelid surgery and sun spots.

Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP)

The PRP Rich Facial Rejuvenation is a procedure that combines platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood to stimulate your stem cells, and microneedling for induction of collagen, and elastin to give you smoother and younger-looking skin. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can also be used as a treatment to accelerate healing in various areas of the body. We also use it to help restore hair growth.

We offer consultations to see if we are the right fit for you and your aesthetic goals.

All of the previously mentioned treatments can be combined or done in addition to injectables. These services offer a great synergistic effect that serves as the ultimate anti-aging defense. A great skin care routine is just as critical to antiaging as these treatments.
