Depending on your ultimate cosmetic goal, a non-surgical procedure could offer you the chance to alter your appearance without worrying about undergoing surgery. Plastic surgery has advanced greatly in recent years and there are a variety of non-surgical procedures in Virginia that can restore a youthful vibrancy. There has been a sharp rise in non-invasive or minimally invasive procedures due to improved technology and affordable costs. These non-surgical procedures can help reduce wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, loose skin, stretch marks, and other skin changes and anomalies.
Those who are considering injectables or laser treatments should consider only the best plastic surgeons. If you are concerned about changes to your face, skin, or body that come with aging, sun damage, or a pregnancy, our highly-regarded plastic surgeons, Dr. Michael Somenek and Dr. Troy Pittman, can offer you an individualized treatment plan that works for your body, health, and desired level of enhancement.
Botox or Dysport injections are popular for patients who want to eliminate wrinkles, crow’s feet, and fine lines on the face. The active agent in Botox and Dysport consists of the botulinum toxin, which acts to relax wrinkles, preventing them from deepening and becoming more visible.
Volume fillers are injectables that stimulate collagen growth and are a quick and easy non-surgical procedure in Virginia. Some of the enhancers available at Somenek + Pittman MD are Juvederm, Restylane, Bellafill, and Radiesse. There is a certain art to maximizing the effectiveness of these fillers, and sometimes less is more.
Similar to the other fillers is the Kybella injection. This procedure breaks down unwanted fat cells by injecting a chemical into target areas. This chemical consists of deoxycholic acid (Kybella), destroys fat cells, and is often used to correct the appearance of a double chin.
Chemical peels are treatments applied to the face, hands, and neck, and are one of the best options for removing old and damaged skin cells to reveal younger-looking skin. This approach can be appropriate for acne scars, wrinkles, and discoloring. Chemical solutions are applied to the target areas during this procedure, causing the skin to exfoliate and later peel away. After the skin layer has peeled away, the skin underneath can appear smoother and less wrinkled.
Intense pulsed light therapy (IPL) uses light technology to improve the color and texture of your skin and can reverse some visible signs of sun damage. IPL can treat almost any area and works by heating the damaged skin layers, stimulating collagen growth, and ultimately creating a more unified and smoother look to the skin. An IPL treatment can address a range of skin conditions in the same session. Due to the precise nature of this treatment, healthy areas of skin located near the problem areas are not affected.
Doctors Somenek and Pittman continue to provide the latest in cosmetic enhancement. Some additional local non-surgical procedures that you can consider to renew your image include:
Additionally, we can help you address hair loss with the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) method, for both men and women.
