Vampire Facials® and Vampire Facelift®

 
Vampire Facials and Vampire Facelift

Plasma-Rich-Platelet (PRP) Therapy is an increasingly popular treatment plan for a variety of concerns. It has been widely accepted as a form of sports medicine therapy for athletes like Tiger Woods and Hines Ward to help injured ligaments, tendons and muscles. It uses the plasma-rich-platelets found naturally in your blood that contain proteins that support healthy cell growth and healing.

Vampire Facelifts® and Facials® are a great way to use your own plasma-rich-platelets to help enhance a more youthful appearance by boosting collagen production, and evening the texture and tone of your skin. By using the platelets found in your own body, this method eliminates the concern of rejection or allergic reaction, for those who did not have the option of using dermal fillers or have sensitivities to harsher chemicals.

Many people have seen the effects of the Vampire Facials® through Hollywood, that celebrities like Kim Kardashian use to keep themselves looking young.

The Vampire Facial® pairs the microneedling treatment with a topical application of your PRP to help stimulate the growth factors and healing properties of your skin. This treatment is ideal for those who would like to see improvement in overall texture and tone for issues like acne scarring, crepe skin, and overall aging skin.

The Vampire Facelift® pairs dermal fillers like Juvederm® with the PRP injected back underneath the skin to help promote healing and boost collagen to help fill areas of lost volume. This is indicated for patients who are looking for a more dramatic change in the shape of your face.

Kybella®

 
Kybella

Injectable gel to eliminate your double chin! You invest in yourself, now invest in your profile.

What is KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for the treatment of fat outside of the submental area or in children under 18 years of age.

Who Should NOT Receive KYBELLA®?

Do not receive KYBELLA® if you have an infection in the treatment area.

BOTOX®/Xeomin®

 
BOTOX/Xeomin

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.

How Long Does It Last?

You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines. Remember that results vary from patient to patient though, so your physician will plan your next appointment based on your results and aesthetic goals.

Does It Hurt?

The actual injection process takes a quick 10-15 minutes. Our Master Nurse Injector will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. Then, some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch.

How Can I Save on Injections?

The best way to save money on your treatments is to enroll in Brilliant Distinctions®, the Allergan consumer loyalty program that helps you earn points for savings on future treatments.

Xeomin® is a prescription medicine of botulinum type A that is injected directly into the muscle. It is used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyes (glabellar lines). It is a highly purified form of bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Frown lines form whe facial expressions are made as the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated facial expressions cause lasting frown lines. Neurotoxins, such as Xeomin®, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions so frown lines are softened.

How Long Does It Last?

Studies show that most injections will last a patient anywhere between 3-6 months with full correction.

Does It Hurt?

There is minimal discomfort with a neurotoxin injection due to the small size of the needles. Some patients report feeling a slight pinch or tingle, and some patients do not feel any discomfort at all.

How Can I Save on Injections?

Merz Pharmaceuticals® offers the Xperience Program® which is a rewards program that a patient is eligible to receive rewards every 90 days for.

Belotero Balance®

 
Belotero Balance

What is Belotero®?

Belotero® is a hyaluronic acid injectable gel dermal filler that helps fill in moderate-to-severe etched in lines in the face. Hyaluronic acid is one of the naturally occuring components of our skin like collagen and elastin that our bodies produce less of, as we get older. Belotero® can help supplement other areas that have volume loss, but is primarily used to help contour areas that do not have a loss in structure. Belotero® was designed to fully integrate into the skin, providing the most natural appearance.

Think of Belotero® as the "finishing touch" to rebuilding a more youthful appearance.

Juvederm®

 
Juvederm

What is Juvederm®?

All Juvederm® fillers are hyaluronic acid based, a substance that naturally occurs within the body to help the skin retain moisture and softness, while adding volume.

The different formulations are FDA-approved for different areas. The most popular filler that we carry is the Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC, which has the best consistency to add volume to lips, contour cheeks, or add fullness and plumpness to mouth lines.

Does It Hurt?

Juvederm® contains pain-reducing lidocaine to help manage pain or discomfort during injection. We also will apply a topical numbing cream prior to injection to help further minimize discomfort and provide patietns with an ice ball after injection to help with post-injection swelling and discomfort.

Radiesse®

 
Radiesse

What is Radiesse®?

Radiesse® is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a aqueous gel.

How Long Until I See Results?

Radiesse® is injected through a small needle and placed under the skin. Immediately, this filler works to add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits of RADIESSE continue by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen.

How Long Does It Last?

The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only your own natural collagen.

Where Can I Place Radiesse®?

Radiesse has been FDA approved to smooth moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, and to correct volume loss in the back of hands.

Crepey Skin and Laxity

 
Crepey Skin and Laxity

What is Crepey Skin?

Crepey skin is a condition that affects the skin to lose elastin. While crepey skin is similar to wrinkles, it typically will present in larger areas of the body as much thinner, fragile skin. The skin may feel loose and potentially sag in certain areas.

What Causes Crepey Skin?

Contrary to popular belief, age is not the largest factor! The main cause of crepey skin and loss of elastin is sun damage. Constant UV exposure causes the fibers in the skin that allow it to stretch and return to its normal position to break down, which results in skin laxity. Other factors that affect the onset of crepey skin include age, loss of collagen, extreme weight loss, or lack of moisture.

What to Expect

A separate consultation is needed to ensure that this dermal filler technique is an appropriate treatment for the area(s) of concern. This consultation is included at no charge to you! Proper expectations and goals of the treatment will be set by one of our expert Master Nurse Injectors.

The technique uses a a mix of dermal filler to help restore the areas of lost volume, while acting as a bio-stimulatory agent that helps stimulate the body's own natural collagen production. The ending result is a beautiful, natural look.

ZianMed® Acne Treatments

 
ZianMed Acne Treatments

If you struggle with adult or teen acne, laser treatments may be the next step for you! We've had countless patients come to us after trying Accutane, topical gels and creams, prescriptions and more- and are ecstatic with the results they've received with our ZianMed® Acne Laser Treatment!

The ZianMed® Acne Laser Treatment is a gentle, yet effective treatment to help target the underlying problem of acne- which is the buildup of excess sebum and bacteria under the skin. It starts with a series of 3-5 treatments of the laser to destroy the bacteria and help eliminate dark spots that may occur with healing. We often pair these treatments with microneedling to help improve the texture and tone of the skin because healing may present with additional pitting or scarring, to give you a radiant glow!

There is no downtime to these laser treatments and it is quick, gentle and effective. Give us a call if you would like a custom-tailored plan for treatment — consultations are always free!

MRF/SRF Treatments

 

Microneedling with RF Epidermal Retexturing and S-Wave RF Dermal Skin Tightening

MRF/SRF Treatments

What is It?

The procedure involves penetration of insulated gold microneedles into the dermis to deliver high-tensioned radiofrequency pulses into the targeted tissue. This results in the body's own production of elastin and collagen fibres, making skin firmer and healther. Our machine combines RF with the microneedling so the RF heat is not on the outside layer of the skin. The energy penetrates much deeper leaving the top layer of the skin cool. Microneedling creates evenly distributed columns for healing in the skin and induces the growth factor to derive the mechanism of natural recovery. The S-wave RF dermal skin tightening has a direct R emission on the targeted tissue by fractional RF thermolysis (thermal damage by segmented RF emission).

When Will I Notice a Difference?

After a few treatments, you will see a noticeable difference. We recommend 3-5 treatments for most patients, with full results present after 6 months. It helps with wrinkles, crepe skin, skin tightening, rejuvenation, reducing pore size and stretch marks.

Why Would I Choose This Treatment Versus Others That are Indicated for Similar Concerns?

The combination of microneedles and RF leads to a more substantial improvement in skin quality and texture. It is also effective in scar treatment such as acne scars, ice pick scars, atrophic scars, and burn and operation scars. Also, you can enjoy benefits like shorter procedure and downtime, it's non-invasive and a lower risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or scarring.

What Should I Expect?

Mild redness and swelling may occur a few hours to up to 24 hours after treatment. Massage and excessive sun exposure should be avoided at this time. More aggressive treatments may result in skin flaking as the new skin layer regenerates. Non-comedogenic moisturizers and broad spectrum (UVA and UVB) sunscreens are highly recommended during this recovery phase.

CoolSculpting®

 
CoolSculpting

Freezing fat is a science. You've probably seen and heard about CoolSculpting® all over the media- but what does it mean, and what can it do for you?

Years ago, scientists at Harvard University observed that some children who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks. The scientists—Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD—realized that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells.

The idea that cold can target fat cells—without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue—was the insight behind cryolipolysis, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based.

The CoolSculpting® procedure uses a patented cooling applicator cup, that when placed over a pocket of fat, will send fat cells into "cell death," to then be expelled by the body. The best part about this- is that it's permanent! Your existing fat cells can just expand and contract but you can rest assured that the area treated will still stay smaller relative to other areas that are not treated.

Non-Surgical BBL

 
Non-Surgical BBL

What is a Non-Surgical BBL?

Non-surgical BBL's (Brazilian Butt Lift) are increasing in popularity due to the rise of influence in mainstream media. The advanced technique uses expert placement of dermal fillers to help subtly enhance, shape and lift the appearance of the buttocks with just a few treatments.

What to Expect

All patients will have to come in for a consultation separate from the day of treatment to make goals of the patient will match the expected outcome of treatment.

You will meet with one of our expertly trained nurses to assess the buttocks and build a customized treatment plan according to goals and expectations. Most non-surgical BBL's can expect their appointments to be approximately 2 hours for treatment. A topical and local anesthetic may be used to help alleviate discomfort during the procedure.

Most patients can expect to have some discomfort, bruising and soreness post treatment.

Maintenance visits will be required to maintain the plumper look, but results can last 1-2 years.

Non-Surgical BBL's VS Surgical BBL's

Although you cannot achieve the same results of a fat graft, implant or surgical buttlift, patients may not have the need for such a dramatic difference. Additionally, some patients like the option to test out what a plumper, rounder buttock would look like before committing to a surgical procedure, and some prefer to refrain from going under the knife altogether.

Other advantages of a non-surgical BBL include no incisions, alternative for patients who do not have enough body fat for a fat transfer, relatively quick procedure and minimal downtime, as well as buildable results over time.

Complimentary Consultation

We always offer complimentary consultations to make sure we are recommending a safe and effective treatment for you. We can build custom treatment plans that mix a variety of options to help shape, contour and address concerns.

Cellulite Reduction

 
Cellulite Reduction

What is Cellulite?

In short, cellulite is a fat deposit underneath the skin. The dimpling appearance that many of us see on the thighs, buttocks, stomach and hips is caused when the underlying fat deposits begin to push through the connective tissues under the skin, causing the uneven texture.

What to Expect

A separate consultation is required for all patients to make sure that the procedure will be safe and effective for the individual.

The in-office procedure will be performed by one of our expertly trained nurses. The advanced technique uses a specific placement to help areas of lost volume, as well as break up the bands that pull the connective tissues down that result in a dimpled appearance. After the treatment, the ending result will be a smoother texture to the treated areas.

Laser Hair Removal

 
Laser Hair Removal

Say goodbye to unwanted hair, and hello to smooth skin! Laser hair removal is an increasingly popular treatment, due to the demand for smooth skin. Lasers have come a long way and Pure Cosmetics keeps up with the latest medical-grade lasers to eliminate unwanted hair, while keeping you as comfortable as possible. Please see below for our frequently answered questions.

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

We are able to treat every skin type on virtually any surface of the body, as long as the hair is darker in pigment. Unfortunately, those with red, blonde or gray hairs are unable to be treated with laser hair removal due to the follicle having no pigment. We require new patient consultations for every patient to make sure you are not on any medications or do not have a past medical history that is contraindicated for laser treatments.

Does It Hurt?

Our highly-trained, certified laser technicians put the safety and effectiveness of every treatment first and foremost. We try to minimize any discomfort by using technology equipped with cooling tips, ice balls, and a thin layer of gel. Although specific technique may vary from technician to technician, please let your technician know if you are experiencing any discomfort so that they may adjust accordingly.

IPL is also commonly referred to as a "photofacial" to help reduce pigmentation and even skin tone. Best results will come from a series of treatments. Some people may want to add IPL treatments as a part of their skincare upkeep and regimen. The benefits of IPL include being non-surgical and non-invasive with no downtime. Additionally, IPL is a light based technology that can be used virtually anywhere on your body.

ZianMed® Spider Vein Laser

Spider veins usually take one of three forms on an individual’s body. They may appear in a “spider” shape with a group of veins radiating outward from a central point. Or, they may appear in a pattern that resembles branches of a tree. They may also appear in a linear pattern that appears as thin separate lines. However, no matter their appearance, spider veins are a nuisance. We can help fade those lines! Please call to schedule a consultation to verify if you are an appropriate candidate!
