Thanks to developments in medical technology and technique, advanced non-surgical cosmetic procedures now exist that can treat the most common symptoms of aging skin. At Capital Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Adam Singleton addresses such issues using dermal fillers, Botox®; and Dysport, Kybella®, chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing, and skin care.
Facial volume loss causes many of the age-related changes our patients experience such as wrinkles and sagging. Thankfully, we can restore youthful volume to the face using injectable dermal fillers.
In this non-surgical cosmetic procedure, dermal fillers are injected into problem areas in the entire face, from brow to chin. This can improve the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and creases; thinning or downturned lips; hollows under the eyes; volume loss in the mid-face; and lip lines.
Treatment with fillers is quick and easy, often requiring no downtime. The results can be observed immediately and last 4 to 9 months, depending on the filler used and where on the face the filler is injected.
Every laugh, smile, and frown cause the facial muscles to contract. These contractions push and pull the overlying skin. After many repetitive motions, wrinkles can appear. These wrinkles are referred to as “dynamic wrinkles,” and they include crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead creases. We use botulinum toxin treatments, Botox® and Dysport, to smooth these stubborn wrinkles, restoring a more youthful facial appearance.
These non-surgical cosmetic procedures rely on the toxin’s ability to stop nerve signals from reaching the facial muscles. This halts muscle contractions, which in turn smoothens the skin and prevents the occurrence of dynamic wrinkles.
Patients see results after a Botox® or Dysport treatment in 3 to 4 days. These results typically last 3 to 4 months.
If you’re struggling with excess fat under your chin, you’re certainly not alone. For those patients who want to treat this fat without surgery, we offer non-invasive Kybella®. This first-of-its-kind, non-surgical cosmetic procedure uses an injectable solution to destroy submental fat.
Kybella®’s active ingredient is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body that aids in the breakdown of dietary fat. When injected into the fat under the chin, it permanently eliminates fat cells. The body then naturally removes the dead fat cells, leading to long-lasting results.
Among the most effective non-surgical cosmetic procedures, chemical peels remove the outermost layers of skin using a chemical solution. This reveals fresh, new skin, often with fewer wrinkles and a more even skin tone.
Our patients love the non-surgical facial rejuvenation they achieve with chemical peel treatments at Capital Facial Plastic Surgery. The three types of peels we offer can treat concerns such as uneven pigmentation, dryness, acne, and mild wrinkling, as well as improve the appearance of acne.
Patients can expect almost immediate results after a chemical peel.
If aging or sun damage has left your skin looking blotchy, wrinkled, and dull, a laser resurfacing treatment can help you rediscover younger and healthier skin. At Capital Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer fractional CO2 laser treatments to improve skin quality and address common skin concerns.
A non-surgical cosmetic procedure, laser skin resurfacing delivers laser energy to problem areas to target and destroy damaged skin. New skin cells then form, resulting in tighter, smoother, and younger-looking skin. This treatment is ideal for skin concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, sun-damaged skin, age spots, hyperpigmentation, dullness, birthmarks, uneven pigmentation, and enlarged pore size.
Patients will continue to enjoy favorable results for years after treatment.
Mild to moderate amounts of sun damage, acne, discolorations, and premature aging can be effectively treated with proper, medical-grade skin care. At Capital Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer the latest in physician-grade skin care as well as chemical peeling products to improve and maintain beautiful skin.
Our skin care options offer solutions for every skin type, color, and concern. Patients can expect to receive detailed guidelines about how and when to use each product at home.
