NonSurgical Treatments That Promote Youthful Skin

Cosmetic treatments used to be much more hardlined when it came to choices. Someone wanting to look a little younger or to correct an aspect of their appearance could either have plastic surgery or not. Today, cosmetic treatment choices are virtually endless, and the vast majority of them don’t involve surgery. With the holidays nearing, now is a great time to explore some of our favorite nonsurgical beauty treatments

Plasma Pen

We are so excited to offer Plasma Pen treatment in our Cincinnati office. This nonsurgical, noninvasive procedure works by instigating a healing process without harming the skin. Using a special device, our provider safely disrupts the uppermost layers of the skin, where damage is most prominent. Simultaneously, the device delivers deeper fibroblast therapy to the dermis, where collagen and elastin are made. The effects of precise plasma energy triggers prolonged collagen production and a remodeling process that smooths wrinkles, fine lines, and firms sagging skin. 

Neuromodulators

Wrinkle reduction is not a cookie-cutter type of treatment. Injectable neuromodulators like BOTOX stand front and center as powerful age-correctors. This type of injectable works on the superficial muscles that pull on the skin when we make facial expressions. BOTOX blocks the nerve signals that are necessary for the muscle to contract, thereby allowing the skin to lie smoothly, as it used to do when the face was at rest. 

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers represent a category of injectables that are just as powerful as neuromodulators even with an entirely different mechanism of action. Unlike neuromodulators, dermal fillers are useful in the soft tissue just beneath the skin. Here, these products increase volume so that lines and wrinkles are plumped to the surface. Some dermal fillers add denser volume in areas that require structure, such as the cheeks and jawline. Some are softer and used to fill out thin or deflated lips with natural looking, natural feeling shape. 

Infusion Peel

Even if you are one who prefers to avoid cosmetic enhancements and injectable wrinkle-reduction, your aging skin can use a boost to keep it healthy and radiant. Our Infusion Peel could be a gratifying gift to give yourself this holiday season. This treatment is a combination of microdermabrasion and infusion that first sloughs off dead and damaged skin cells and then delivers powerful nutrients tailed to your unique needs. Some of the concerns that can be addressed with the Infusion Peel include hyperpigmentation, oxidative stress and sun damage, rough texture, and more.

Is a Thigh Lift Right for Me?

Excess fat and skin is something we might not be surprised to see on the midsection of the body. The thighs, though? Not so much. This problem of loose and sagging tissue is more common than most people imagine. So, when it happens to them, they’re often unsure about what to do. Like abdominal laxity, excess thigh fat and skin can be resistant to exercise and healthy eating habits. In fact, the problem is often a result of significant weight loss. This is why, for some people, a thigh lift makes a lot of sense. 

What a Thigh Lift Can Do

The purpose of a thigh lift is to improve the proportions of the thighs in relation to the rest of the body. In so doing, this procedure can provide a massive boost in self-confidence. Too often, excess thigh tissue prevents a person from wearing shorts, skirts, and bathing suits. These items of clothing do not hide the appearance of the thighs, and wearing them may even create physical discomfort as the inner thighs rub against each other. A thigh lift reduces the circumference of the upper legs so that clothing can be worn with much more comfort. 

Candidates for Thigh Lift Surgery

A thigh lift isn’t necessarily reserved for the person who has lost a great deal of weight and has been left with loose and sagging skin. As we age, the thighs, just like other parts of the body, can simply lose their shape. The thigh lift is appropriate for any person who is interested in reshaping the upper legs so their body looks more proportionate. The ideal candidate for this procedure is in good physical health, does not smoke, and has realistic expectations for their anticipated outcome. 

Thigh lift surgery is a big commitment that offers significant rewards. Patients should be prepared for a full two weeks of minimal activity after this procedure. They may not be able to resume rigorous exercise for six weeks or longer due to the need to protect the surgical area. On the other side of recovery, though, is a lifetime of beautiful results. While the aging process cannot be stopped, with good weight management and exercise to maintain muscle tone, the results of thigh lift surgery can last indefinitely.

Are you ready to shape the lower portion of your body? Contact our Cincinnati office at 513.985.0850 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Donna Krummen to discuss a thigh lift or other body lift procedures.
