Are you searching for safe but effective non-surgical facelift options? At South County Medspa and Wellness, we understand the benefits non-surgical treatment options can deliver, such as quality results without any serious side effects or lengthy recovery periods. We want to take a moment to educate you about some of our non-surgical facelift options that we proudly offer here in office, and encourage you to schedule a consultation so we can discuss your goals and possible treatment options.
What is Exilis™?
Exilis™ is a non-invasive treatment that combines radiofrequency (RF) and ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production, giving you a smoother, firmer, and younger-looking appearance. Though this technology can also be used on other parts of the body to help contour and improve your physical appearance, it’s innovative ability to lift and tighten the skin makes it a perfect treatment option for a non-surgical facelift.
Exilis™ is a safe and effective treatment option for patients of any skin type, race, and age. It is entirely non-surgical, non-invasive, and requires no medication, anesthesia, or downtime making it ideal for those looking for a safer alternative to traditional facelift procedures.
How does Exilis™ work?
The radiofrequency and ultrasound energy within the Exilis™ device are both controlled and adjusted by our staff throughout the treatment for optimal results. The device delivers heating and cooling energy at various depths without any pain or discomfort to the patient. Patients feel a warming sensation similar to that of a hot stone massage.
During treatment, thermal radiofrequency energy will heat the tissue, triggering collagen contraction and skin tightening. This dual-energy also stimulates collagen production improving skin laxity and resulting in a more youthful appearance.
For optimal results, we recommended 4-6 treatments scheduled at least a week apart. Each treatment session lasts an average of 30 minutes but can take longer depending on the area being treated. Though patients do report seeing results after the first session, results will significantly improve throughout your treatment plan and peak at about 3 months. There is no downtime associated with this procedure allowing you to return to work or daily activities immediately.
At South County Medspa and Wellness, we are also proud to offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to our patients. PRP has continued to grow as a reliable way to effectively treat soft tissue and joint injuries, but it is also an ideal treatment method for aesthetic applications to help improve overall skin and hair health. Let’s take a look at how it can serve your facelift needs!
How does PRP work?
Our blood predominantly consists of plasma, which carries red and white blood cells and platelets. PRP, also known as platelet rich plasma, is created by drawing some of the patient’s own blood and then using a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets within a sample of the plasma.
This concentrated sample of platelets is then strategically injected into the treatment area to reduce wrinkles, add volume, and improve your overall skin quality. This can also be combined with dermal fillers.
By using your own blood, we can help harness your body’s own regenerative powers to promote the growth of new cells and create younger-looking skin in a non-invasive, natural way.
Much like our Exilis™ treatment option, PRP is ideal for those who desire healthy, rejuvenated skin without having to undergo lengthy treatments or surgery. It is an outpatient procedure without incisions, and results can be experienced on the same day but will diminish within the week and then build up over the next 4 to 16 weeks with benefits that can last up to 12 to 14 months or more.
Yet another non-surgical option we offer in our clinic is LaseMD. LaseMD skin resurfacing treatment can improve a variety of skin conditions and imperfections, and is again a preferable option for a non-invasive procedure.
Before treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to the area that will be treated and the lasers will be customized to the patient’s individual needs. During the procedure, light and heat energy safely penetrate the skin and create micro-channels to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This is followed by application of a serum customized to your needs. This causes the body to produce more collagen and elastin during cell turnover rejuvenating the skin to become smoother, clearer, and more youthful.
What should I expect during LaseMD treatment?
The average treatment session lasts 20 minutes. Your experience depends on the intensity of the wavelength adjusted for your skin concerns. LaseMD skin resurfacing treatment is painless skin revitalization where most patients report a warming sensation and mild discomfort.
You may experience some mild redness, warmth, and dryness for a few hours following treatment. There is minimal downtime afterward with many patients able to return to their normal routine that same day. We do recommend you protect your skin from the sun to avoid damage and follow your after-care instructions as directed.
Patients may notice an improvement in their skin immediately following treatment. Over the next few months, results will continue to improve as collagen levels increase. With each successful treatment, the results will become more noticeable. Once the patient’s goal is achieved, regular touch-up sessions may be scheduled to help maintain results.
