Non-Invasive Procedures





CoolSculpting

A revolutionary non-surgical contouring treatment, CoolSculpting freezes stubborn fat cells under the skin using a targeted cooling process. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body.

 

The foundation for creating successful results begins with establishing a solid partnership between the patient and the physician.


The procedure is safe, FDA-cleared and unlike many other methods of fat reduction, it involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Each treatment takes about an hour and patients are able to resume their daily activities the same day. 92% of our patients with one treatment to the targeted area had a noticeable reduction of fat. Results will vary based upon the size and shape of each individual patient but most patients can expect a 20-25% fat reduction in the treated area.

BOTOX®

 Botox is a US FDA approved injectable treatment that temporarily reduces fine lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles between the brows.Botox is a purified protein made by the Clostridium Botulinum Bacterium that reduces the activity of the muscles that cause the aforementioned lines to form.

 A typical treatment takes10-15 minutes, with noticeable affects in just a few days. Treatment may last up to 4 months. Botox is effective on both men and women and it typically creates a more refreshed and youthful appearance.

JUVEDERM®

 Juvederm is a facial filler consisting of a smooth gel that when injected helps to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles, worry lines, smile lines, crow’s feet, marionette lines and smoker’s lines.  Juvederm is made of Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to hydrate and add volume to the skin.

 Juvederm injections take 15 to 20 minutes to perform. The results are immediate, but will still improve over the following week.  The longevity of Juvederm is determined by the initial and correct use of the sufficient volume. The use of more than one syringe may be required for optimal results.

 Most side effects are mild in nature and typically last up to five days. The most common side effects include, but are not limited to: redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, bruising, itching, and discoloration.

RADIESSE®

 Radiesse is safe and effective, FDA approved dermal filler used for the correction of facial lines, wrinkles and folds, including the deepening of nasolabial folds, accentuated smile lines (sometimes called “marionette lines”), fallen cheek pads and sagging jaw lines. Radiesse provides more longevity than any of the other leading, dermal fillers on the market today. 

 Radiesse is made of unique calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a natural gel that is injected into the skin during a minimally invasive procedure. The results from Radiesse injections are immediate. For the first three months after injection, Radiesse acts as a typical filler substance. Then due to its unique collagen-generating properties, Radiesse stimulates new tissue development for extended correction up to an additional year. The aesthetic benefits from Radiesse last for a total of 9-12 months

 Temporary swelling occurs after Radiesse injections for up to two days and cannot be used in the lips.

Chemical Peel

Chemical peels are a non-invasive way to restore wrinkled, blemished, unevenly pigmented, or sun-damaged facial skin using a chemical solution to peel away the skin's top layers. The new cells that form during the healing process produce smoother, tighter, and younger looking skin.

 

As a woman of a certain age, a chemical peel was necessary to revive my skin. – Patient TB


Chemical peels can be used on the full face or on specific regions such as the forehead or the area around the mouth. Light, medium and small-area deep peels typically take between10 to 15 minutes per application, while full-face deep peels may take some additional time. Light and medium peels are usually repeated within a few weeks or months.

Lexington Plastic Surgeons specializes in the Vi Peel™, which provides dramatic results with minimum discomfort or down time.

Laser Hair Removal

The Laser Hair Removal process is performed with Candela Gentle YAG, the most advanced laser equipment, focusing laser light energy at the surface of the skin targeting pigment in hair follicles. The laser is effective on all skin tones; however, gray, white/silver, blonde and some shades of red cannot be treated.

 

I would recommend laser over waxing for anyone; less pain and less money over time. – Patient RD


This laser light energy quickly heats the targeted hair follicle while the skin is cooled and essentially destroys the hair in a process known as photothermolysis. With each laser treatment, you can expect to see less hair grow back and the hair become finer and/or is permanently or safely removed. Typically up to 6 months are required  

 Laser Hair Removal can be performed on the abdomen, arm, underarms, back, bikini, chest, face, neck and legs.  Results may vary based upon location of hair removal and specific hormone conditions.

Mesotherapy

A cosmetic procedure where a formula tailored to each individual for a desired result is injected into layers of fat beneath the skin. The formula can be used for cellulite treatment, weight loss, wrinkle prevention and skin restoration and is a popular alternative to invasive procedures like liposuction.

 

The results are like night and day. – Patient NM


The injection formula is comprised of a combination of homeopathic and pharmaceutical medications including amino acids, plant extracts, vitamins, and minerals. Some of the ingredients are for breaking down the fat within  the each cell, others for improving the metabolism that processes the destroyed fat and the rest cosmetic improvements like skin elasticity.There is no downtime associated with Mesotherapy and minimal pain or bruising.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion treatments utilize microparticles, or a diamond-tipped wand to remove the epidermis (top layer of your skin) and stimulate new skin growth by gently sanding the skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discoloration and sun damage.

 

My skin is soft now and has a bright youthful glow. – Patient CW


There are two kinds of microdermabrasion treatments including one that involves a hand-held device that streams tiny crystals across your skin, while an attached vacuum simultaneously suctions those exfoliating crystals back into the machine, along with the dead or loosened skin. The second approach uses a diamond-tip wand that is gently moved across your skin to exfoliate.  Microdermabrasion also helps to thicken your collagen, which results in a younger looking complexion.

VNUS Closure

The VNUS Closure procedure is a minimally invasive treatment alternative with less pain and less bruising when compared to traditional vein stripping surgery and laser treatment. Using the Closure system, physicians close the diseased veins by inserting the Closure catheter into a vein and heating the vein wall using temperature-controlled RF energy. Heating the vein wall causes collagen in the wall to shrink and the vein to close. After the vein is sealed shut, blood then naturally reroutes to healthy veins.

 

I was honestly very surprised to see how effective VNUS Closure was for me. It‘s nice to feel confident in short skirts again. – Patient MC


Venous reflux or venous insufficiency develops when the valves that usually keep blood flowing out of your legs become damaged or diseased. Closure catheters are inserted into the vein via a tiny incision in the lower leg, eliminating the need for groin surgery and general anesthesia. Because treatment with Closure is minimally invasive and is catheter-based, it results in little to no scarring.
