Aesthetics Q & A

 

What are aesthetic services?

Aging and environmental factors take a toll on your youthful glow despite your best efforts. You may notice frown lines, crow’s feet, or sagging around your jawline.

Dr. Cortez-Sammons and the team at Transformation Health & Wellness offer a broad selection of popular procedures and skin treatments to help restore a more youthful appearance by smoothing and filling wrinkles and improving your skin tone and complexion. 

You can choose from many treatments, such as fillers, Botox/Dysport, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facials, and microneedling. Most of these aesthetic services require little or no downtime. 

What are Botox and Dysport?

Botox and Dysport are both popular neurotoxin injectables that work by temporarily freezing the muscles in your face that cause wrinkles. The injections are quick and may feel like a brief sting. 

The treatment can help to smooth the appearance of:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Eyebrow furrows 

Botox and Dysport can also be used for other medical conditions such as headaches and hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. 

Your results typically last around four months. You may wish to come back to Transformation Health & Wellness for maintenance treatments.

How do fillers work?

With age, your face and hands gradually lose collagen, the tissue layer that plumps your skin. Dermal fillers replace that lost volume in many problem areas. 

Fillers can enhance the volume in your cheeks and fill nasolabial folds, marionette lines, vertical lip lines, and depressed acne scars; some formulations can increase the volume of your lips or plump the backs of your hands. Dr. Cortez-Sammons offers hyaluronic acid fillers Juvéderm®, Juvéderm Voluma®, and Restylane®.

What is a platelet-rich plasma facial (PRP)?

You may have heard of a facial that gets its name from the mythical vampire, and the PRP facial uses the same all-natural principles to enhance your appearance. PRP uses the natural growth factors in your blood cells to improve your skin’s appearance. Performed either with or without microneedling, a PRP facial helps to counteract the signs of aging, and promote natural wound healing in aging skin.

PRP can also be used to encourage hair growth and can be injected under the skin to be used in a filler-like fashion. Further, it can be used as a joint injection to help repair collagen within sore and achy joints, encouraging healing of tendons and ligaments, and has even shown some benefit for arthritis.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is an aesthetic treatment that uses a device studded with sharp, sterile needles. Dr. Cortez-Sammons rolls the device over your skin, where the needles make tiny puncture holes or micro-conduits. 

These minuscule wounds activate the skin’s healing process, triggering the production of collagen and elastin that are essential to youthful skin. Microneedling helps to smooth away the signs of:

  • Acne
  • Wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Stretch marks

Microneedling also encourages the creation of new capillaries below the surface of your skin to promote the healing of scar tissue.  Oftentimes this technique is used in conjunction with PRP to encourage collagen stimulation and improve the skin’s appearance.
