The holidays are just around the corner, which means holiday parties and get togethers will be here before you know it! Everyone wants to look their best when visiting with friends and family, but not everyone wants to experience the downtime associated with invasive plastic surgery treatments. At Dr. Ellen Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in the Birmingham area, we offer an array of non-invasive treatments to help you look and feel your best this holiday season.
BBL- If you are looking to achieve even, radiant skin, try out a BBL treatment. BBL (Broadband Light) laser skin rejuvenation can treat a variety of skin conditions, including acne, unwanted hair, deep lesions, vascular lesions, age spots, freckles, and hyperpigmentation. Treatments are quick, typically taking about 10-30 minutes. Patients usually need two to five treatment to see optimal results. The best part? There is no downtime following your treatment, so you can go about your daily activities.
Laser Resurfacing- For a younger-looking, clear complexion, laser resurfacing may be able to help you. ProFractional laser treatments are used to improve an array of skin conditions, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, sun-damage, scars, and can even tighten the skin. A laser will gently remove the uppermost layers of the skin, revealing a tighter, younger-looking surface. Five to seven days following the treatment, the skin will dry and peel. This is normal, and is needed to see optimal results.
Ultherapy- Ultherapy is an FDA approved treatment that uses ultrasound to tighten and smooth lines and wrinkles on the neck, chin, under the eyebrows, and the chest. Ultrasound will stimulate the production of collagen in the skin, slowing the aging process. There is no downtime associated with this procedure, and only one treatment is needed.
Injectables- Injectable fillers such as Belotero, Juvéderm, Juvéderm Voluma, Restylane, Sculptra, Radiesse, and Prevelle Silk are used to add fullness under the skin, smoothing imperfections such as wrinkles. Botox is also a great option for non-invasively correcting wrinkles. However, this injectable is a neuromodulator, meant to temporarily paralyze muscles that contract and cause unsightly lines.
