As much publicity as cosmetic enhancement procedures receives – from celebrities, in the news and from friends socializing with friends -- many people still believe that surgery, Botox and fillers are the only options for achieving a more youthful appearance. Certainly, all three of these choices can help to rejuvenate your appearance, but none of them rejuvenate the skin itself.
For that, we recommend something very different – non-surgical treatments that do, in fact, rejuvenate the skin.
A Treatment Just Right for Every Skin
Treatments such as HALO hybrid fractional laser, Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling, Forever Young BBL HERO and Platelet Rich Plasma are very effective -- non-surgical -- anti-aging treatments.
These are not alternatives to surgery or Botox and fillers, they are in a class all their own -- the most powerful and effective treatments that actually rejuvenate the skin. Even patients that undergo surgical interventions benefit from these treatments because excess skin removal with surgery provides a tighter look but it does not change the quality or texture of the skin.
We offer different types of skin rejuvenation treatments because our patients are all unique individuals with different skin types and tones, at different life stages and with different improvement goals. Most everyone wants to avoid surgery, and the vast majority aren’t ready for surgery anyway.
Dr. Elizabeth Hernandez was the first in San Antonio to bring this outstanding treatment to her patients. It has become a go-to resource, especially for patients who have more advanced skin rejuvenation needs. Morpheus8 is unique, combining highly-controlled, fractional radiofrequency heat with microneedling to produce significant improvement that can take years off your appearance.
Morpheus 8 can successfully treat issues from lines and wrinkles or jowls to acne scars. It not only resurfaces, it tightens skin and improves contouring. Results are immediately visible and improvement continues over time because the treatment renews natural production of collagen and elastin.
This is also a unique combination treatment, but this one uses two different laser wavelengths to simultaneously treat surface and sub-surface skin. It’s not unusual for patients to need ablative resurfacing as well as non-ablative, deeper treatment to address issues such as lines and wrinkles, sun damage dark spots, enlarged pores, scarring, rosacea and melasma.
HALO allows us to customize treatment for each person. The fractional technology produces very impressive results, but it is faster, safer and more comfortable than traditional lasers. HALO treatments benefit younger as well as older adults, and it is safe for all skin types and even the darkest complexions.
This advanced type of intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is gentle on the body but produces even more impressive results than older-style IPL treatment. It is suitable for all but the darkest skin tones, and can be a great choice to address a wide range of skin imperfections. BBL HERO Forever Young not only resurfaces, it tightens skin and improves elasticity. With regular treatments, it can delay visible signs of aging.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
This is a serum we produce from a small blood sample. It is a concentration of platelets that contain growth factors that the body uses naturally to promote healing. We especially like PRP in combination with Halo, Morpheus8 or SkinPen microneedling. We apply the serum immediately afterward, and it is quickly absorbed into the deeper dermis through the microscopic needle pricks to boost and enhance skin rejuvenation. PRP is entirely safe since it comes from your own body.
Think Beyond Your Face
Skin ages everywhere on the body, and these treatments can help turn back the clock nearly anywhere. So bring all your concerns to your personal consultation, and we can help you create a non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment plan that is as unique as you are.
