If you schedule your procedure now, you will be ready to don the bathing suit and hit the pool party circuit the minute the summer social season begins. Upcoming wedding or reunion? PCI Plastic Surgery has treatments for those events as well!
The summer temperatures may be heating up, but you can keep your cool all season with CoolSculpting. This non-surgical method of body contouring actually freezes away your fat cells to give you a more sculpted body profile. An applicator delivers concentrated cooling beneath the surface of the skin to destroy fat cells in areas like the midsection, hips and thighs. Over time, those treated fat cells are eliminated by natural body processes and you enjoy a leaner, smoother shape.
CoolSculpting takes around one hour to complete and you will be able to return to regular activities as soon as the procedure is over. While some patients will achieve desired results in a single treatment session, most will require a series of treatments to achieve full results.
Skin tightening has never been easier, thanks to the revolutionary treatment known as ThermiTight. For patients with mild to moderate amounts of skin laxity, this procedure can firm up loose skin and create a more youthful contour on the face or other areas of the body. The secret behind ThermiTight’s success is radiofrequency energy, which works underneath the skin’s surface to heat the tissue below.
The procedure tightens the underlying tissue while stimulating the body’s own collagen and elastin production for results you can see both now and later. The procedure is relatively painless and most patients will achieve desired results in a single treatment session.
Injectable treatments are another way to turn back the clock and enhance your appearance with just a few minutes of treatment time. Neuromodulators like Botox are effective in smoothing away fine lines and facial wrinkles in the upper portion of the face, while dermal fillers work on lines around the nose and mouth area. In addition, dermal fillers can be used to restore youthful volume to the cheeks, under the eyes and along the jawline.
Injectable treatments take just a few minutes to complete and involve very little discomfort. Most patients return to regular activities as soon as the procedure is over. Results can be seen right away and continue to improve in the days following treatment.
If crepiness around the eyes is a concern, then ThermiSmooth might be the right treatment for you. This procedure uses the same RF energy generator utilized by ThermiTight and the same method of collagen restoration. However, the procedure is performed externally using a small applicator that is applied to the skin. No anesthesia is required; many say that it feels like a warm stone massage on the treated area.
Most patients return to regular activities as soon as the procedure is over. Results can be seen right away but will improve with a full series of 3 treatment sessions.
Summer is on its way, so now is the time to get ready for the season with cosmetic treatments targeted to your specific concerns.
