Love The Skin You Are In
My goal is to help you love your skin and feel confident about your appearance. There are more and more aesthetic medical treatments available every year. What may seem like endless choice can be confusing, so use this at-home consultation to analyze the changes you see in the mirror (yes it helps to use a mirror) and to guide you toward the right treatment or combination of solutions.
The treatment management will depend on the depth and underlying cause of the problem; sometimes a combination of treatments is needed for the best overall result. Cost and recovery time also play a role in what treatment choice is best for you. Photorejuvenation, using laser devices such as IPL, offers excellent results for skin surface changes such as sunspots, broken blood vessels and fine textural changes, with minimal discomfort and downtime.
- Botox and dermal fillers are usually the best choices for lines and folds. Botox treats lines and undesirable facial expressions and areas of sagging caused by muscle imbalances.
- Dermal fillers are biocompatible gels that fill in lines and folds and lift the face in areas that have fallen due to tissue thinning and fat loss.
- The SoftLift® uses a combination of Botox® and dermal fillers such as the Juvederm™ family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. When Botox and dermal filler treatments are combined the results are superior (1+1=3) and long-lasting. The treatment is mildly uncomfortable, with surprisingly little downtime.
For more advanced skin aging- deeper wrinkles, coarse rough texture, prominent pores and sagging The SmartXide Dot laser resurfacing may need to be added. This has a little longer recovery; 5-8 days depending on the depth of skin treated. The Dot is one of the few treatments that non-surgically treat the sagging and crepiness around the eye area. Aging isn’t confined to the face, The Dot and IPL laser can also be used to treat the neck, chest and hands.
Now that you have an idea of available options- book a consultation to see what Dr. Sweeney would recommend for your concerns.
