If you’ve been looking for a way to improve your look in some way, you no doubt have a wide variety of treatment options. It can quickly become overwhelming trying to decide which treatment is best for you. Thankfully, we offer a number of surgical and non-surgical procedures to patients throughout the Kalamazoo area!
truSculpt® is a non-invasive body contouring technique that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy. It works by heating and destroying fat cells that are then eliminated by the body. Sessions are performed in the comfort of our office.
This treatment can be used on many parts of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, and arms. The client won’t need any anesthetic; in fact, many clients have compared truSculpt® to a hot stone massage. It may take weeks to months for the full results of the treatment to become apparent.
A liquid facelift is a non-surgical and temporary treatment that mimics some of the effects of a conventional facelift. A client in Kalamazoo may use it simply because they don’t want to undergo surgery. A liquid facelift’s effects can last for several months to a year.
In a liquid facelift, the specialist will inject muscle relaxants and/or dermal fillers into specific parts of the client’s face. Muscle relaxants, such as BOTOX®, work by relaxing the targeted muscles and thus smoothing out wrinkles. They are used to treat forehead lines, the 11’s between the brows, and crow’s feet – all of which are in the top third of the face.
Dermal fillers can fill in lines or wrinkles, and they can add volume to the cheeks or lips. Examples include Juvederm® and Restylane®. Different dermal fillers are used on specific parts of the face.
Micro-needling is a minimally-invasive and non-surgical treatment used to stimulate collagen production. It can make the following less visible:
• Acne scars
• Stretch marks
• Enlarged pores
• Fine lines
A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is an outpatient cosmetic surgical procedure in which the doctor will tighten weakened abdominal muscles and remove excess skin and fat. It is very often done after the patient has lost a lot of weight and is left with sagging excess skin. Pregnancy and aging can also loosen muscles and produce sagging skin.
This just scratches the surface when it comes to the variety of treatments we offer to patients in Kalamazoo and the surrounding areas.
