Step into a New Season of Self-Confidence



Rebecca Hendrixson

 

Summer has once again melted away and busy school routines are falling into place. Rest assured, however, that the services offered at Dermatology and Skin Care Associates in Mason are far from routine. The staff is enthusiastic about bringing realistic, mildly invasive options to busy parents. Practical, affordable, and beautiful results with minimal downtime are precisely what is wanted and needed.

One of the newest technologies available through Dermatology and Skin Care Associates is called Secret RF, developed by the face and body aesthetic solutions company Cutera. This is a more intense radio frequency-energy delivery system than micro needling alone. Secret RF is a micro needling skin remodeling from the inside out. It is an innovative new treatment that improves signs of aging skin, fine lines, wrinkles and scars. Treatments are suitable for patients seeking skin revitalization and are customized to address individual skin concerns and needs. This procedure is safe and effective for all skin types. Patients typically need three to four treatments spaced four to six weeks apart to achieve optimal results.

Secret RF is a great option for tightening the skin and reducing laxity. With the radio frequency, the doctors are able to target deep wrinkles around the mouth and eyes, as well. Secret RF also works well with stretch marks, acne and surgical scars.

After the treatment, an ointment is applied to the skin and the patient needs to refrain from wearing makeup for several hours. Any minor redness or swelling from the treatment will subside within 12-24 hours. Following the treatment, the patient can expect to return to normal activities. This procedure is perfect for a Friday afternoon and you’ll be ready to return to work by Monday morning with only you and your doctor knowing the “secret.”    

Another no-downtime procedure that gently improves the overall complexion is called Laser Genesis. This is a break-through laser treatment that stimulates the skin’s natural processes to reverse the signs of aging and sun damage to promote a vibrant, healthy-looking complexion.

Micro-pulses of laser energy activate collagen to restore skin’s youthful glow and appearance by improving common concerns like facial redness, fine lines and wrinkles. Quick treatments and no down-time mean Laser Genesis can easily fit into your busy schedule. Many patients consider it the perfect lunchtime procedure. Additionally, this treatment is often described as relaxing and therapeutic, as patients experience a gentle warming of the skin’s surface. Laser Genesis touts this procedure as #cameraready, which is certainly apropos as we take and share photos on a daily basis.

Ultherapy is yet one more option for a non-invasive, no-downtime, in-office treatment. The power of ultrasound goes to work deep below the skin’s surface, reviving and creating new collagen. This technology allows practitioners to see where they treat, ensuring energy is delivered safely to the right areas. Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared procedure that lifts and tightens your neck, chin and brow, and improves fine lines and wrinkles on the chest. This procedure does not duplicate a surgical facelift. However, it is a great alternative for patients not ready for surgery or for those who want to continue building collagen after a surgical lift.

Studies show that three out of five women are unhappy with their bodies. As fall settles upon us and winter is on its heels, it is easier to hide the bumps and bulges beneath heavy sweaters and comfy, elastic-waisted pants. However, winter also means dressing for the holidays and parties. Additionally, women may be able to disguise bodily concerns beneath layers of clothing, but the truth lies beneath.

An exciting new technology offered at Dermatology and Skin Care Associates is truSculpt. We have all heard of procedures involving cold/freezing technology. The advantage of truSculpt is, controlled heat is delivered to the deep subcutaneous tissue layers of those “problem areas,” such as muffin tops, love handles, saddlebags and bra-line bulges. This is the ideal alternative for both women and men who live a healthy lifestyle but battle with specific areas that a No-carb, No-sugar diet nor any number of crunches or 5K runs are able to resolve.

The truSculpt process uses heat to destroy fat cells. This is a localized heat that is delivered with a grounding pad. The patient actually feels the warmth on top of the skin. To achieve optimal results, two to four treatment sessions spaced four to six weeks apart are recommended.

The team at Dermatology and Skin Care Associates is ready to help you find the very best version of yourself with methods that are painless, non-invasive, and easily scheduled around your busy work/life balance. Say goodbye to summer and step into a new season – one called confidence.
