Reclaim Your Youth: Non-Invasive Solutions for Sagging Skin

 

As time passes, it’s natural for our skin to undergo changes. The once firm and resilient appearance may give way to sagging and drooping, signaling a decrease in collagen and elastin production—the building blocks of youthful skin. Whether due to aging, genetics, or environmental factors, sagging skin can affect various parts of the body, from the face and neck to the abdomen and limbs. But fear not, for there are safe and effective treatments available to restore firmness and vitality to your skin.

 

At East End Laser Care, we offer a range of non-invasive treatments designed to combat sagging skin and rejuvenate your appearance. Here’s how we can help:

 

Thermage CPT: Using radiofrequency technology, Thermage CPT stimulates collagen production, resulting in tighter, smoother skin with minimal downtime.

 

Exilis Ultra 360: This innovative treatment combines radiofrequency and ultrasound to target sagging skin, delivering noticeable results with no surgery required.

 

INFINI: By harnessing the power of microneedling and radiofrequency energy, INFINI stimulates collagen production, effectively tightening and lifting sagging skin.

 

Fraxel Repair Laser: Fraxel Repair Laser resurfaces the skin, promoting collagen regeneration and improving overall skin tone and texture.

 

Smartlipo Triplex: This advanced laser liposuction technique not only removes unwanted fat but also tightens the skin, resulting in a smoother, more contoured appearance.

 

Kybella: Specifically targeting submental fullness, or double chin, Kybella injections help eliminate fat and improve the appearance of sagging skin under the chin.

 

Ultra Femme 360: A non-invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten and lift the skin in the vaginal and labial areas, promoting a more youthful appearance.

Rejuvenating Your Gaze: Non-Surgical Treatments for Aging Eyes

As we age, the delicate skin around our eyes is often the first to show signs of aging. From wrinkles and fine lines to puffiness and dark circles, aging eyes can detract from our overall appearance and make us look tired or older than we feel. Fortunately, there are a variety of options to rejuvenate the eye area without the need for invasive surgery.

 

Botox for Crow’s Feet: One of the most popular non-surgical treatments for aging eyes is Botox. This neuromodulator works by relaxing the muscles around the eyes, reducing the appearance of crow’s feet and dynamic wrinkles. With just a few quick injections, Botox can smooth out fine lines and restore a more youthful, refreshed look to the eye area.

 

Dermal Fillers for Tear Troughs: Hollowing or dark circles under the eyes, known as tear troughs, can contribute to a tired or aged appearance. Injectable dermal fillers, such as Restylane Eyelight and Belotero, can help plump up this area, smoothing out hollows and reducing the appearance of dark circles. By restoring lost volume, dermal fillers can rejuvenate the under-eye area and create a more rested, youthful appearance.

 

Laser Skin Resurfacing: Laser treatments such as Fraxel Repair or Fraxel Dual, can address a variety of concerns around the eyes, including wrinkles, fine lines, and uneven skin texture. Fractional laser resurfacing stimulates collagen production and promotes skin renewal, resulting in smoother, tighter skin with improved tone and texture. Laser treatments can also help reduce the appearance of sun damage and age spots, giving the eyes a brighter, more radiant look.

 

Thermage for Skin Tightening: Thermage utilizes radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten loose skin around the eyes. This non-invasive treatment targets sagging skin, smoothing out wrinkles and improving overall skin texture without surgery or downtime.

 

Exilis Ultra 360 for Eye Rejuvenation: Exilis Ultra 360 combines radiofrequency and ultrasound energies to target both superficial and deep layers of the skin around the eyes. By promoting collagen remodeling and tightening loose skin, Exilis Ultra 360 can reduce wrinkles, improve skin elasticity, and enhance the overall appearance of the eye area.

 

Whether you’re targeting wrinkles, dark circles, or sagging skin, there are effective options available to address your specific concerns without surgery. Call our office today and I’ll design a treatment plan just for you.

Beyond the Knife: Non-Surgical Facelift Options for a Youthful Glow

Embracing a vibrant and youthful appearance doesn’t always necessitate going under the knife. Thanks to advancements in non-surgical facelift options, achieving a lifted and rejuvenated look has become more accessible than ever. Let’s explore some non-surgical treatments that are transforming the landscape of facial rejuvenation.

 

Fraxel: Resurface for Radiance

 

Fraxel, a fractional laser treatment, stands out as a powerful tool for addressing multiple signs of aging. By stimulating collagen production and targeting specific areas of the skin, Fraxel promotes a smoother texture, diminishes fine lines, and reduces pigmentation irregularities. The result? A refreshed and radiant complexion without the need for invasive procedures.

 

Thermage and Exilis: Tighten and Tone

 

For those seeking skin tightening without surgery, Thermage and Exilis Ultra 360 offer non-invasive solutions. These radiofrequency treatments deliver controlled heat deep into the skin, stimulating collagen production and tightening loose or sagging areas. Thermage and Exilis are particularly effective for enhancing the contours of the face, creating a lifted and youthful appearance.

 

Infini: Precision in Rejuvenation

 

Infini, a high-intensity focused radiofrequency (RF) treatment, takes a precise approach to facial rejuvenation. By delivering RF energy through microneedles, Infini targets specific layers of the skin, promoting collagen synthesis and tightening. The result is improved skin elasticity, reduced fine lines, and a more lifted facial contour.

 

Fillers: Restore Volume and Soften Lines

 

Dermal fillers, such Restylane Defyne, Restylane Lyft, Juvederm Voluma and Belotero, offer a non-surgical solution for replenishing lost volume and softening facial lines. By strategically injecting fillers into areas that need a lift or added fullness, practitioners can sculpt the face, addressing concerns like nasolabial folds and sunken cheeks with natural-looking results.

 

Botox: Smooth Away Wrinkles

 

Botox, a household name in non-invasive cosmetic procedures, excels in smoothing dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movement. By temporarily relaxing targeted facial muscles, Botox minimizes the appearance of crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines, contributing to a more relaxed and youthful expression.

 

In the realm of non-surgical facelift options, the choices are diverse and exciting. Non-surgical treatments empower individuals to achieve a youthful glow without the need for invasive procedures. Your journey to radiant, rejuvenated skin starts beyond the knife, embracing the artistry of non-surgical facial enhancement. Schedule your appointment today, and I’ll design a treatment plan to help you look best without surgery.

Rejuvenate Your Eyelids with Non-Invasive Treatments

Droopy eyelids, also known as ptosis or hooded eyelids, can be caused by a combination of factors, including aging, genetics, and loss of skin elasticity. These sagging eyelids can give a tired, aged appearance and may even impair your vision in severe cases. If you’ve been struggling with droopy eyelids, don’t worry – you are not alone. This common concern can affect anyone, and there are various treatment options available to help you regain youthful, alert eyes.

 

  1. Thermage: Thermage is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that uses radiofrequency technology to stimulate collagen production. When applied to the upper eyelids, Thermage can tighten loose skin and improve the appearance of droopy eyelids. This treatment promotes a more alert and youthful look without the need for surgery.

 

  1. Exilis Ultra 360: Exilis Ultra 360 is another radiofrequency-based treatment that targets sagging skin. It can be used around the eyes to tighten the delicate skin on the upper eyelids and reduce droopiness. Exilis Ultra 360 is a comfortable and effective option for achieving a more youthful eye area.

 

  1. Fraxel Repair: Fraxel Repair is a fractional laser treatment that can address both textural irregularities and skin laxity. When used on the upper eyelids, it can help tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of droopiness. Fraxel Repair offers minimal downtime and excellent results.

 

Results from these non-invasive treatments are usually noticeable within a few weeks and can continue to improve over time as collagen production is stimulated. If you’re looking to rejuvenate your eyes without surgery, Thermage, Exilis Ultra 360, and Fraxel Repair are excellent options. These treatments provide a non-invasive approach to addressing droopy eyelids, helping you achieve a more refreshed and youthful appearance.

Say Goodbye to Saggy Jowls: A Guide to Effective Treatments

Saggy jowls can be a common concern as we age, but there’s no need to let them undermine your confidence. We offer multiple treatments that can help you combat sagging jowls and achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

 

Thermage and Exilis Ultra 360

Both Thermage and Exilis Ultra 360 use radiofrequency technology to stimulate collagen production deep within the skin. Collagen is essential for skin elasticity and firmness. These treatments can help tighten saggy jowls, providing a non-invasive alternative to surgery. The results become more pronounced over time and can last for a year or more.

 

Fraxel Repair

Fraxel Repair is a fractional laser treatment that improves the texture and firmness of the skin. It can be used to resurface the lower face, reducing sagging jowls, and promoting a smoother appearance. Fraxel Repair is suitable for more severe sagging and offers long-lasting results.

 

Infini

Infini is a radiofrequency microneedling treatment that targets saggy jowls by stimulating collagen production. The tiny needles deliver energy to the skin, leading to skin tightening and a reduction in sagging. Infini is an excellent option for individuals looking to improve the definition of their jawline without surgery.

 

With the help of these innovative and non-invasive treatments, you can say goodbye to saggy jowls and regain a more youthful, lifted, and confident appearance. The right treatment for saggy jowls depends on your individual needs, the extent of sagging, and your desired outcomes.  Schedule a consultation and I’ll develop a personalized treatment strategy exclusively for your needs.

 

Thermage and Exilis – Powerful Solutions to Treat Sagging Skin

Sagging skin is a natural part of the aging process, but that doesn’t mean you have to accept it as an inevitable part of your life. Non-invasive treatments like Thermage and Exilis have emerged as game-changers in the world of skin rejuvenation, offering effective solutions for those seeking to combat sagging skin.

 

Thermage is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy to target the skin’s deep layers. It works by delivering controlled RF energy deep into the skin, heating the collagen-rich layers. This heat stimulates collagen production, which gradually tightens and firms the skin over time. The gradual improvement achieved with Thermage ensures that your results appear natural. You won’t have that “pulled” or “frozen” look often associated with surgical procedures. Thermage is effective for treating sagging skin on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, arms, and abdomen. It can address concerns like jowls, loose skin on the abdomen, and wrinkled necklines.

 

Exilis is another non-invasive skin tightening treatment that uses a combination of RF energy and ultrasound to address sagging skin. The procedure employs a unique combination of RF and ultrasound energy, allowing it to target both the superficial and deep layers of the skin. This dual energy approach maximizes collagen stimulation to produce dramatic results without surgery or downtime.

 

If sagging skin has been a concern for you, Thermage and Exilis both offer a non-invasive, comfortable, and effective solution. These treatments stimulate collagen production, providing natural and long-lasting results.

Neck News

For many of you, the neck is a body area that you’d like to improve. Because the skin is so delicate, it’s prone to changes in tautness, smoothness and color, particularly as we age.

 

Some of you may notice little lines or bands that run horizontally around the neck or vertical cords (platysmal bands) that become prominent. Also, when collagen and elastin decrease over time, the skin on your neck may sag and look crepey. Changes in color may include brown spots and pigmentation, particularly on the decolletage, the chest area. Or, you may see red, blotchy or wrinkly skin, most often due to excessive exposure to the sun.

 

At home, remember to moisturize and use SPF and retinol products, as you would on your face. If you are still not happy, come see us. We have many ways to help your neck look beautiful and more youthful. Here are a few:

 

Infini: This radio frequency microneedling treatment tightens the neck and jowls and reduces crepiness, too.

 

Thermage CPT: This tightens skin on the neck and jowls, non-invasively. It’s often called a “Thermal Lift” treatment, and it’s highly effective for many areas of the body.

 

Exilis Ultra 360: Another thermal treatment, Exilis Ultra 360 tightens skin on the neck and jowls and reduces fat, non-invasively.

 

Fraxel Repair: This laser treatment resurfaces and tightens the skin on the neck and jowls and reduces crepiness and hyperpigmentation (brown spots). It is the procedure of choice for deep lines, hard-to-erase lip lines, pronounced photodamage, sagging face and neck skin, facial wrinkles and discolorations, age-related/sun-damaged rough skin texture, acne and surgical scars.

 

SmartLipo Triplex: This laser procedure permanently removes fat by destroying fat cells, removing them and tightening the skin. It is effective for large areas of the body as well as smaller ones, like the neck.

 

Kybella: This series of injections dissolves submental fat permanently and causes some skin contraction, too. Once fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat, so re-treatment is not expected.

Don’t Forget Those Hands

You may have taken care to keep your face and body looking youthful, but the telltale signs of aging happen in places that we might forget. Hands, even though we use them and see them all of the time, are one of the most overlooked spots for cosmetic treatment. Because they are so active and exposed to the elements, and because the skin is so delicate, hands are prone to sun damage, wrinkles and discoloration. Often, they can make you look older than you are.

 

There are a number of effective techniques that can help rejuvenate your hands, improving the quality and texture of your skin, while decreasing the wrinkling and prominent veins. If you’ve noticed prominent veins and tendons because of volume loss, or wrinkly and thin skin, or age spots, we have several techniques that can help.

 

First, injectable fillers may be used in various locations on the hands to plump and reshape sagging or loose skin. For fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, sun damage or irregular pigmentation, we offer non invasive treatments like Fraxel DUAL and Thermage CPT.

 

Mid-summer may be an optimal time for these quick and easy hand rejuvenation treatments. Call our office for a complimentary consultation, and we’ll devise a plan just for you.

Eyes: Windows To Your…Age

No one really wants to reveal his or her age. But there are places on our bodies that can give secrets away, namely, the eyes.

 

The skin surrounding your eyes is extremely delicate, making it susceptible to cosmetic problems that make you look older than you are. Also, because it moves so much during facial expression, lines and wrinkles form over time. Crow’s feet emerge on the outside of the eye and creases appear underneath the lash line, for instance. Add dark circles, hollowing, drooping lids and puffiness, and you will appear tired and worn. Perhaps you’ve tried creams that claim to tighten skin or cold tea bags and cucumbers that temporarily reduce fluid retention, but you are still not happy when you look into the mirror.

 

We offer a range of nonsurgical treatments that will help return a well-rested look to your eyes and ultimately, your face. Depending on your individual needs, we can craft a personal plan that will help you look refreshed and more youthful, with minimal downtime and recuperation.

 

Here are a few of our most popular eye treatments:

Men Are Body-Conscious, Too

When people talk about body image, we often assume that they are referring to women. But men experience similar insecurities about their physical appearance, according to many studies published worldwide.

 

Many men worry about beer bellies, love handles, man “boobs” and hair loss, among other issues associated with aging.

 

More than four in five men (80.7 percent) talk in ways that promote anxiety about their body image by referring to perceived flaws and imperfections, compared with 75 percent of women, according to a study from the University of the West of England. The study also revealed that 23 percent of the surveyed men didn’t go to the gym because they were concerned about their appearance and 63 percent thought that their arms and chests were not muscular enough.

 

A study in 2016 by Chapman University researchers, published in the journal Psychology of Men and Masculinity, showed that:

 

  • About 25 percent of the men were dissatisfied with their appearance, compared to about 28.5 percent of women.
  • More than half of the men had gone on diets in the past year, and nearly 42 percent were unhappy with their weight.
  • About 37 percent did not like the condition of their muscle tone.
  • About 69 percent felt judged on their looks and felt pressure from magazines and television to have a slimmer and more muscular body.

 

So, if you are male and concerned about your body shape, you are not alone. It’s likely that you

have dieted and spent hours in the gym. Sometimes, these tactics are not enough for certain trouble spots or for men of certain ages.

 

In our offices, one of the most popular procedures for men is SmartLipo Triplex, particularly for the neck, abdomen and breast area. SmartLipo Triplex is a minimally invasive method for removing unwanted fat and sculpting areas of the body that you’d like to change.

 

We also find that Kybella is effective for reducing the double chin, a common male problem that often resists diet and exercise. This procedure slims and contours the area below and around your chin and neck, without surgery.

 

You may also be concerned about the effects of aging, sun damage and stress, all of which can negatively impact how you feel about yourself at home and at work. Many male patients come see us for Botox, particularly for their foreheads and crow’s feet, and for dermal fillers that minimize the folds around their noses and corners of their mouths. Some of these fillers include BeloteroJuvedermRestylane LyftRestylane Silk and Radiesse. Also, to decrease wrinkles and sagging on the face and around the eyes, many men come to us for Thermage CPTInfini and Fraxel Repair Laser Treatments.

 

If you’re not entirely happy with how you look, don’t hesitate to call our office for a complimentary consultation. We’ll try to help you look and feel your best.

Targeting the Waist Up

When it comes to making improvements on your bodies, you may spend a lot of time talking about your lower half. Many people, particularly women, focus on their lower abdomens, hips and legs. When spring turns to summer, though, and sleeveless tops take center stage in wardrobes, many of you ask me about cosmetic treatments for your upper body.

 

Here’s a quick look at what we can do to trim and tighten your torso and upper extremities:

 

For arms and elbows: To reduce fat, tighten and contour these areas, SmartLipo TriplexExilis Ultra 360 and Thermage CPT are effective treatments that can be done now, in the spring, with dramatic results. You may notice that your tricep looks droopy, or the spot above your elbow has lost its spring, or the skin in the crease appears crepey. You may also spot bulges in your underarm area. SmartLipo, Exilis Ultra 360 and Thermage CPT can help minimize unwanted fat and folds. Even if you do your weights and toning exercises, sometimes the skin doesn’t respond the way that you want it to, so these minimally invasive treatments could be options for you.

 

For bra and abdomen fat: Loose-fitting or thick sweaters provide great camouflage during winter and fall. But with temperatures starting to soar, this trick will cease to work. The season’s tiny tops, not to mention bathing suits, will have a hard time covering the excess flesh that protrudes from the top of and the bottom of your bra strap. Those back bulges disrupt your entire silhouette, but we have several treatments that will help reduce them. Along with Exilis Ultra 360 and Thermage CPTSmartLipo is highly effective, as it will destroy fat cells permanently.

 

Come talk with us about the many options for shaping and tightening your upper body. Call our offices today to schedule a complimentary consultation.

Does This Make Me Look Fat?

Six little words that sail from dressing rooms the world over, this question is practically a mantra for the body conscious. Regardless of your shape, fitness level or weight, you may have worried that you don’t look as thin or as attractive as you possibly could. And if the worry makes you feel bad, you want to do something about it.

 

This is where we come in. Changing the way you look at your body–which could mean embracing what you don’t like, tweaking what you don’t like or changing dramatically what you don’t like–is what we help you to do.

 

So, if your fall and winter diet and exercise regimen hasn’t produced the results that you want on the beach in a couple of months, we offer a few ways to help you like what you see in the mirror. Our battery of body contouring treatments include SmartLipo TriplexExilis Ultra 360 and Thermage CPT.

 

SmartLipo Triplex is a minimally invasive method for removing unwanted fat and sculpting targeted areas of the body. It’s a laser treatment that virtually melts fat cells and suctions them away. Exilis Ultra 360 firms and tones loose and sagging skin and reshapes and melts stubborn fatty deposits anywhere on your face and body. Popular areas treated with Exilis include the face, jowls, neck, chest, back, “love handles,” “bra fat,” abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks and knees. Finally, Thermage CPT is a thermal lift that tightens loose skin on the eyelids, under-eye areas, abdomen, arms, legs and even your sagging buttocks. It is the most effective lift treatment for a multitude of concerns, yielding dramatic results without incisions and recuperation.

 

So, instead of saying “Does this make me look fat?” why not enter the world of “Doesn’t this make me look beautiful?”
