During the fall and winter seasons at Ohio Plastic Surgery Specialists, we have a huge demand for non-surgical procedures. This is due to the fact that many of our facial rejuvenation procedures cannot be performed in the spring and summer due to intense sunlight. Learn more about our most popular facial and body rejuvenation procedures that require little to no downtime and no general anesthesia below!
For our facial rejuvenation with laser treatment procedures, we use the Sciton Joule Laser, which is one of the best on the market. One of the most popular non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures is known as BBL, or Broadband Light. This procedure removes brown and red spots, sun damage, stimulates collagen, and gives the face a more youthful appearance. It can be performed in our office and takes about 15 minutes.
The next non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure that is slightly more invasive and may require some downtime is the MicroLaserPeel. In this procedure, the laser peel acts like microscopic sandpaper to shave down the top layer of skin and smooths out irregularities. After the MicroLaserPeel is performed, the skin will have some blistering and crusting. Healing takes around 5 days and the facial skin is very smooth and regular after healing takes place. This procedure can also be done in our office and takes 15-20 minutes to perform.
Our third most popular non-surgical facial procedure is called ProFractional. This is a laser treatment for people with loose skin. For example, if you struggle with bags under your eyes, loose skin around your jaw or the crows feet area. We use the laser and a computer to drill small holes into the skin. When the laser reaches the bottom of that hole, a small amount of heat is applied which causes contracture or shrinkage of the skin so it tightens up. The procedure takes about 15 minutes in our office and requires no downtime.
This non-surgical body rejuvenation procedure is known as truSculpt iD. This procedure obliterates fat and tightens skin. It is done by applying electrodes to the surface of the skin. truSculpt iD heats up the skin and fat cells and 1 out of 4 fat cells in the treated area undergo microscopic explosion. It is not painful or uncomfortable. Then, the body takes care of the unwanted fat cells like other unwanted parts of the body and will dissolve the fat over 4 to 6 weeks. Final results will be achieved at 12 weeks. Many patients are satisfied after one treatment. This is also done in our office and takes about 15-20 minutes with no downtime.
This procedure is a third of the price of liposuction. This procedure may not be beneficial for patients with a lot of fat or excess skin. If you have been exercising and have a few troubled areas such as the arms, abdomen, love handles, or under the chin, this may be the best treatment for you.
