Instalift is best described as a non-surgical alternative to a face lift. Clients who want to revisit their youthful appearance can choose the micro-suspension technology used in Instalift to raise and plump the appearance of cheeks, making facial features appear younger and more supple.
During the Instalift procedure, micro-cones are placed in the lowest layer of mid-facial skin. These cones act as suspension devices to immediately lift and raise cheeks and to make mid-facial features appear more youthful. At the same time, these cones prompt the natural release of collagen for results that may last up to two years.
Instalift is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and requires only a local anesthetic.
Coolsculpting is a noninvasive method of contouring those parts of your body that have always caused you anxiety. Using cryolypolysis, this procedure freezes and eliminates fat cells, reducing the appearance of stubborn body fat by as much as 25 percent where you need it most. Coolsculpting is most often used to streamline the appearance of thighs, abdomen, flanks, back, buttocks, and upper arm areas. In addition, it's often instrumental in removing unsightly bulges beneath the chin and under the jawline.
The Coolsculpting procedure has been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a safe, non-surgical treatment for fat removal and body toning.
If you're searching for a quick, surgery-free way to boost the youthfulness of facial features, injectables may be the solution. Injectables include products such as Botox and dermal fillers such as hyaluronic acid. These products serve to plump up areas of your face like your lips, cheeks, and under-eye skin. They help lessen the appearance of wrinkles and lines, while making skin appear more youthful.
Injectables are inserted into the skin using needles, meaning they provide immediate results. They're good solutions for removing crow's feet and forehead wrinkles, and have been approved by the FDA for cosmetic use.
Injectables carry a low-risk of infection and are mostly painless. Products such as Juvederm and Restylane are popular examples of dermal fillers.
Microneedling uses tiny needles to prick the skin, creating small wounds. The purpose is to prompt your body's natural release of collagen as a healing agent. Collagen production makes skin appear younger, fuller, and more supple, which is the ideal result and is why many clients swear by microneedling to turn back the ravaging hands of time.
Microneedling may sound painful, but it isn't really. The needles used are small, and they're not inserted very deep. And as a result, your body's natural defenses get a healthy boost. Microneedling is useful for removing signs of aging such as wrinkles and lines, but it's also a proven treatment to reduce signs of acne, scarring, and stretch marks.
Microneedling has been approved by the FDA for cosmetic use, and has minimal side effects.
