We’ve recently shifted more dramatically to a virtual world setting. Many people have continued to work remotely and stay in touch with friends and family from a safe distance. Doing so has its advantages but it has also come with an interesting consequence. We see ourselves more frequently than we may have ever seen ourselves before. As a result, more people have taken that step to have plastic surgery. We understand that surgical correction isn’t ideal for every person, so we want to offer alternative solutions that work. Here, we discuss a few fast facial refreshers that are available at Lux Skin & Lasers.
Biologique Recherche Facial
This facial is not what you would imagine based on the standard concept of facial treatment. It goes beyond cleansing and moisturizing the skin and seeks to remodel the shape of the face. If you’ve reached a certain age, you may be noticing that your face isn’t the same shape it once was. Your lower face seems to have widened. Your jawline is softer or saggy, as is the skin under your chin. Your cheeks are flatter and there is generally less contour to your face as a whole. These signs of aging are frustrating and, to be honest, not every esthetician or med spa knows how to deal with them. We do. The Biologique Recherche Facial utilizes the power of four currents in one Remodeling Face® Machine. These include:
- Galvanic current to help maximize the ingredients in skincare products
- Low and medium frequency current to reshape facial tissue
- Thermic pulsed high-frequency current to revitalize the epidermis
- Electroporation, high-frequency impulse current to open the pathways to the deeper layers of the skin
Microneedling has been a popular treatment for several years, offering a quick, no-downtime solution to a multitude of cosmetic concerns. Microneedling works by stimulating the production collagen and elastin. Today, while microneedling is still a strong treatment option for many people, we also have RF microneedling to achieve more profound improvements. RF microneedling in our practice is performed using the INFINI Radiofrequency Microneedling device. This technology delivers powerful, controlled radiofrequency to deeper layers of tissue to both stimulate collagen production and tighten existing collagen fibers.
The signs of aging often get so frustrating that we feel we cannot look at them for another day. Fortunately, we don’t have to! A Liquid Facelift is a customized treatment that uses wrinkle reducers and dermal fillers like Juvederm Voluma to smooth, plump, and contour different areas of the face. A Liquid Facelift deposits injectable products more deeply beneath the epidermis to round out the cheeks, define the jawline, disguise undereye bags and more. Downtime is next to nothing, with minor activity restrictions in place for 24 to 48 hours. With those, most people can return to work and normal daily obligations looking and feeling their best.
Aesthetic medicine has grown so much in the past few decades that the treatment options can easily feel overwhelming. You don’t have to have it all figured out. Just contact us for a consultation and we’ll help. To schedule a visit at our King of Prussia or Bryn Mawr location, call 484-322-5316.
