Energy Based Treatments
What Is it?
Despite its scary-sounding name, “fractional resurfacing” is actually a surprisingly simple procedure—a safe and effective alternative to costly surgery.
Using an advanced laser, we stimulate your skin’s collagen and activate its natural healing abilities to undo and correct sun damage, wrinkles, age spots, fine lines, and even some scarring.
Your face is left looking young and smooth again.
More effective than creams and safer than face lifts, fractional resurfacing is one of the most effective and lasting ways to improve your appearance, look younger, and feel better—just by activating your body’s natural healing abilities.
What CAN I EXPECT?
During this non-surgical treatment, Dr. Falguni Patel applies the laser to the desired area, revitalizing and retexturizing your damaged or blemished skin. The process is relatively quick and easy, but may require several appointments.
You might see results right away, but you probably will not achieve the desired effect until the full course of treatments is complete.
What is it?
For many of us, all those wrinkles and lines, loose skin, and other blemishes can take a real toll on our self-confidence and sense of well-being.
There’s good news, though, because these imperfections can be easily fixed with two types of special facial rejuvenation treatments performed here at the Rejuvenate Center for Medical Aesthetics and Wellness (it’s in our name, after all).
These innovative, painless treatments use a radio frequency (RF) laser to penetrate your skin more deeply than creams and peels, and stimulate the collagen to improve your skin’s overall tone and texture.
Sublative rejuvenation treatments plump up loose facial skin and decrease noticeable textural damage from conditions such as acne, sun exposure, and aging. Your face will appear smoother, and your skin will look healthier and more luminous.
Sublime rejuvenation targets the signs of aging around the neck and jowl, brow lines, and under-eye area. The treatments tighten up the face, shrink droopy skin, and enhance skin tone to reduce sun spots, broken blood vessels, and acne scars.
What Can I Expect?
These affordable, comfortable treatments are safe and effective on all skin types, and take less than 45 minutes each. For best results, Dr. Falguni Patel recommends up to three treatments, spaced 4–6 weeks apart, but this can vary depending on your skin’s condition.
What Is It?
Ultherapy® is a non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound to lift loose or sagging skin on the neck, under the chin, and above the eyebrow.
It is the only non-invasive treatment that specifically targets the deep foundation beneath the skin—where cosmetic surgery occurs—without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
The procedure’s unique ultrasound imaging technology enables us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during treatment, and ensures that we direct the energy precisely where it will be most effective.
Now there’s a way to stand firm in the face of gravity—on your terms.
With Ultherapy®, there’s no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change; just a healthy revving-up on the inside for a natural, noticeable effect on the outside.
What Can I Expect?
Dr. Falguni Patel administers the single, 60-90 minute Ultherapy® procedure in-office, and you can go on about your day afterward.
You may notice a short-term “boost” in your skin’s appearance, but the natural process of creating new, more elastic, collagen builds over time—much like the effect that exercise has on building muscle (but without the multiple workouts!)
Real results— including lifting of the skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the brow—will appear over the course of 2–3 months. Some patients have even reported continued improvement for up to 6 months after.
While ultrasound does not duplicate the results of surgery, Ultherapy® has proven to be an inviting alternative for those patients who are not yet ready for surgery.
How is Ultherapy® different from lasers?
Lasers typically address issues in the superficial layers of the skin (e.g., fine lines, wrinkles, pigment changes, etc.) Ultherapy® addresses both the deep skin layer and the foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery that lift and lend support to the skin. The two technologies are, therefore, quite complementary!
Are there any side effects?
There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature. There is always the possibility for other less common post-procedural effects, which Dr. Falguni Patel will review with you.
What Is It?
Morpheus8 is a new anti-aging technology for all skin tones that can be used on any areas of the face and body that exhibit imperfections such as wrinkles, discoloration, or acne scarring.
Minimally invasive, the Morpheus8 procedure uses microneedling and radio frequency (RF) energy to penetrate deep into the skin and fat, remodeling and contouring the area into a smoother, sleeker appearance.
The most commonly treated areas include the face, neck, and abdomen, to tighten loose skin with the underlying fatty tissue.
Morpheus8 is proven to increase collagen production and tighten skin, as well as reduce wrinkles and stretch marks, improve acne scars, and smooth away discoloration from age spots or sun damage.
What Can I Expect?
Dr. Patel typically recommends three treatments, performed 4–6 weeks apart. Each treatment can last between 15–60 minutes, depending on the size of the treated area, and patients generally report no to mild discomfort from the device. There is no downtime after the procedure, and you can get on with your day right away.
Visible results can be seen within a few days, but the most noticeable results usually appear after three weeks. Improvements can continue for up to three months after treatment.
