1. Salt Facial Skin Renewal

Your face, perhaps more than any other part of you, is the one you pay more attention to. It’s the first thing you look at in the mirror first thing in the morning. When you’re tired, it shows, and if you’re feeling happy your face simply glows. And there’s a reason why you give your face so much extra care. It’s also what others look at when they see you. It’s no wonder the majority of beauty products in the market are all about your face. The skin, the eyelids, the eyebrows, the nose, and the lips. There are lots of products to help you accentuate your beauty and hide any blemishes. But there’s one skin blemish that no cosmetic can help you with. Unwanted skin conditions. You can’t hide them, cover them, or gloss over them. Which is where our SaltFacial skin treatment comes in. Say goodbye to unwanted skin conditions, and hello to a more beautiful you!

2. Fractora Skin Resurfacing

Suffering from a skin condition or noticeable change such as acne, scars, wrinkles, discoloration or sagging is common. Nevertheless, it’s something both men and women are eager to avoid and reverse if at all possible. While options were once limited when it came to reducing the appearance of these skin imperfections, the field of cosmetic technology has made great strides in techniques and strategies used to reduce and even eliminate everything from fine lines and wrinkles to acne scarring and stretch marks.

Today, many patients looking to improve their overall skin condition are turning to Fractora skin resurfacing. This innovative cosmetic treatment uses radiofrequency technology that works to reverse the effects of lower collagen levels in the skin as well as the results of sun damage or genetic predispositions to changes in pigmentation.

A combination of micro pins is paired with heat in order to enable Fractora to reach the deep levels of skin where collagen growth can be provoked and promoted. This minimally invasive treatment is equally effective for men and women and comes with the added benefit of being effective across an array of skin tones and color.

3. Chemical Peels

Much of the skin damage caused by external factors affect the top layer of skin. It’s here that the most visible changes occur and can lead to dissatisfaction on an aesthetic level. The key to working towards a more youthful appearance when it comes to facial skin is to get below the surface and promote healthy skin rejuvenation and cell growth. Chemical peels achieve this by going well beyond a surface cleansing and removing the top layer of dead skin completely to stimulate the production of new skin cell growth below. 

Chemical peels are manufactured from acidic solutions which can be formulated to remove dead skin cells to a specified level depending on the area of the body being treated. At its most basic, a chemical peel removes the old to reveal the new. Many patients elect to be treated with chemical peels when they suffer from acne, acne scarring, age spots, uneven skin tone, fine lines, and moderate wrinkles.

4. Microblading

Patients with thin or non-existent eyebrows are often concerned with the amount of time it takes to enhance the look on their own. The process of coloring in eyebrows on a daily basis can add up on the clock as well as in the pocketbook with the products that are required. Microblading in St Louis is a fast outpatient procedure that also helps patients save time in the long run. Once microblading is complete, patients no longer have to worry about spending time in the morning applying makeup or covering in their eyebrows. Similarly, those athletic individuals that suffer from this condition often worry about products used to enhance eyebrows smudging or smearing during workouts and exercise.

Microblading can be a great source of stress relief as those who undergo the treatment no longer have to worry about changes in their appearance through the day or course of athletic activities. For individuals that suffer from alopecia or have lost their eyebrows as a negative result of chemotherapy, microblading can lead to positive and pleasing results.

5. Dermapen Microneedling

Whether these alterations show up in the form of wrinkles with age, stretch marks from pregnancy or general weight loss, scars from accidents or smile lines, the proof of our full lives shows up on our skin, but that doesn’t mean it has to stay that way. Individuals looking to restore and rejuvenate skin that has succumbed to these types of changes will be thrilled with results offered from the process of micro-needling.

6. Facial Fillers For Fine Lines & Wrinkles

The natural aging process lends itself to the development of fine lines and wrinkles. As collagen production decreases, skin begins to lose overall elasticity. While these changes may not be as noticeable many areas of the body, men and women alike often turn to cosmetic treatment in the fight against wrinkles that develop on the face, particularly around the mouth and eyes. 

Picking and choosing just the right type of facial filler begins with a thorough consultation and exam with a cosmetic professional in order to determine the product that can best achieve the desired results. In the majority of cases, the solution will be a combination of products that each works to create a smooth, full effect based on your ideal results. Below are only a few of the popular options.

Botox is a popular option for many patients who are looking for soft-looking results, such as softened lines or targeting “tired lines” and wrinkles. Botox relaxes muscles at the injection point so that they naturally smooth out and remain that way until the next set of injections.

Dysport is considered a close equivalent to Boto, with a slightly different formulation to work well with different skin types. Xeomin is often selected by patients looking to improve the look of wrinkles that line the forehead while Bolotero is the product of choice for patients looking to treat problem areas concentrated around the lips, nose and even the neck.

Juvederm is an injectable that targets the development of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose. This extremely precise injection is a filler that comes with the added benefit of long-lasting results. Many patients use this filler annually depending on where they are being treated, and this facial filler can also be a filler used for lip plumping. 

Radisse is an even more specific product choice for patients that struggle with volume loss around the mouth, while those that choose to use Restylane will enjoy the benefit of increased Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) after injections, meaning a stronger collection of cell surface proteins.

7. Lip Fillers

Maybe your mom isn’t looking for facial fillers for fine lines and wrinkles (because she just doesn’t need them!), but she’s still interested in enhancing her facial features. Lip fillers are another type of esthetic procedure that’s gained popularity in the last several years, and offer many treatment options. Many patients seek treatment and services to make lips look both larger and fuller as a way of contouring the face to the desired shape or highlighting specific focal points. Many patients choose to enhance lip size as a route to achieving a more youthful overall look.

In the majority of cases, lip fillers are injectable solutions that work to temporarily enhance the size and volume of lips. Lip fillers are injected into both the top and bottom lip to adequately enhance the patient’s facial features, while maintaining a natural, contoured look. Lip fillers are considered a non-invasive treatment option and many patients are able to achieve desired results through the completion of a 30-minute session. While the lifespan of fillers will vary, patients electing this process should understand up front that lip fillers are recommended as a regular series of injections that must be maintained in order to keep the desired results in place. 

8. Dermal Fillers for Jaw Contouring

Jawline contouring is a popular procedure for slimming the jawline and creating a more balanced facial profile. Over time, aging can impact the elasticity of the jawline and create jowls. A sagging jawline can add age to someone’s appearance and also impact the balance of the face. Jawline contour using injections is popular for men and women who want to create a more defined jawline. Facial fillers in these areas are often used to strengthen the jawline, improve the appearance of a “double chin”, define and add sharpness to the jawline, or provide greater facial symmetry in this area. A lax jawline causes the skin in the center of the face to loosen and sag, while a firm jawline helps some look fit and confident.

Using dermal fillers in this area can provide a rejuvenated, youthful appearance, increase the sharpness of the jawline, and address patient concerns of sagging skin in this area, which commonly occurs over time and with age. Dermal fillers are a great way to address areas of the face that are affected by regular, repeated movements that cause “dynamic” or “fine” lines over time.  As these specific muscles move over time, they lose more and more of their natural collagen and elasticity, resulting in loose, sagging skin in the affected areas. In fact, as one area on the face continues to age, it can have effects on other areas of the face as well. Overall, the loss of volume in one area of the face inevitably causes the loss of volume across the entire face. 

9. EmSculpt for Toning Muscle

EmSculpt is a much newer technology but also has an excellent safety record, is non-invasive, and is also backed by the FDA. During treatment, the EmSculpt machine mimics your body’s own movements, forcing muscles in the targeted area to contract, just as they would by doing crunches, sit-ups, or squats. The EmSculpt machine uses electromagnetic waves, also known as HIFEM – High Intensity, Focused Electro-Magnetic energy. This energy is focused on the targeted treatment area to force your muscles to contract rapidly for about half an hour and allows your body to experience the results as if you did 20,000 crunches on your own. 

10. Laser Liposuction

Laser liposuction is an extremely versatile approach to fat removal and successfully removes deposits from many areas of the body with ease. Patients often choose a laser liposuction procedure over traditional liposuction for its ability to treat both large and small problem areas with ease; it’s unlikely to desire an invasive, expensive, painful procedure to treat only a very small area, such as the ankles or the back of the neck or chin. That’s where Laser lipo comes in! Laser liposuction has proven successful on the chin and jowls, inner and outer thighs, hips, calves, ankles, buttocks, abdomen, flanks, and upper back. Additionally, patients see visible results with laser liposuction performed on the bra-line, upper arms, pubic mound, and back of the neck. Contact us today!
