If you've tried dieting and exercise to get your body into a new shape, you probably know that while you may be healthier and feel better, not all of your pockets of fat are willing to go. CoolSculpting® is a nonsurgical procedure for body contouring, making use of cold to kill off fat cells in areas where they create stubborn, unwanted bulges. The low temperatures target only the fat cells, keeping everything else intact. Results are gradual.
Cellulite is associated with fat, but is not actually caused by fat. Instead, the telltale dimples are the result of tiny connective bands, known as septae, found beneath the skin. Severing the septae can cause the skin above to appear smoother, instead of pulled down into tiny puckers. Cellfina™ involves the use of a microblade, but is a nonsurgical procedure that requires no incisions or sutures.
Blood is an important and powerful part of the body, especially when it comes to healing and repair processes. The platelets in blood are especially beneficial, so concentrating them in plasma and injecting them as part of a nonsurgical procedure can have significant rejuvenating effects. Collagen induction is frequently used at West County Plastic Surgeons to enhance the results of other treatments, such as microneedling, but can also be used on its own as a facial or for hair restoration.
There are many types of energy used in nonsurgical procedures. Ultherapy® employs ultrasound energy, which is ideal for causing tissue contraction and triggering renewed collagen production to address laxity. This treatment can be used on the brow, chin and neck area, and décolletage.
The outermost layers of skin are where many of the visible signs of sun and other environmental damage sit. Chemical peels involve the application of special solutions that cause these dull, damaged layers to flake away. This nonsurgical procedure allows the younger, fresher skin cells beneath to show, as well as encourages rejuvenating healing processes that restore collagen, elastin, and more to the face.
Thin, short eyelashes can get a boost from Latisse®, a topical medication applied directly to the lashes, causing them to grow in length and thickness for a darker, fuller look. This nonsurgical procedure involves home application, with the product available only by prescription.
West County Plastic Surgeons offers a range of carefully selected skincare products for our patients to use on their own, extending the benefits of both surgical and nonsurgical procedures with their own regimens at home. Choose from cleansers, restorative treatments, sunscreen, and more.
