Visitors to our medical spa in the Milwaukee area have been taking advantage of non-surgical anti-aging treatments and procedures that are fast and have them back in their daily lives almost immediately. Treatments like microdermabrasion, dermal fillers, and the HydraFacial® offer real results with no need for much, if any, downtime. This is because they do less damage to the skin than some other types of treatments and procedures. No incisions are involved, so less healing time is necessary.
Has your skin lost some of its radiance recently? As skin cells develop and mature, they rise to the surface layers of your skin to replace dead skin cells. These dead skin cells normally slough off to make room for maturing skin cells. However, this material can sometimes build up on the surface of your skin and really dull your complexion. This is where microdermabrasion comes in.
This treatment breaks up all of those dead skin cells for an immediate brightening of your complexion. Making microdermabrasion a regular part of your skin care routine offers the best results.
Dermal fillers are injectable substances that can help to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles that can make you look older externally than you feel internally. This is an exciting anti-aging treatment that offers real results without any real downtime necessary.
Hyaluronic acid is an important skin component that declines with age. Since its role in your skin is to provide hydration, its age-related decline leads to skin that gradually grows thinner and more susceptible to the formation of lines and wrinkles. A hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler can help replace the amount that you have lost due to the aging process and lead to a significant reduction in the prominence of static lines and wrinkles.
Calcium hydroxylapatite is another type of filler containing a substance that is commonly found in bones and teeth. One formulation contains the material enclosed within microspheres to enhance bioavailability. Like other types of fillers, calcium hydroxylapatite dermal fillers work by enhancing facial skin volume to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. The right filler for you will depend on a number of factors and can ultimately be determined during a consultation.
The HydraFacial® is a medical spa treatment that offers instant results that are long-lasting. The treatment has proven to be effective in improving skin conditions like enlarged pores, oily skin, acne, dry skin, sun-damaged skin, and uneven skin tone.
One aspect that makes a HydraFacial® so effective is that it combines multiple technologies in one: It can exfoliate, rejuvenate, and remove dead skin cells, as it cleanses, hydrates, and moisturizes. The treatment does not result in any set downtime. Treatments are fast and easy. HydraFacial® treatments offer results that last longer than normal facials, and your results will be immediately visible.
Not to be confused with microdermabrasion, microneedling is a skin treatment that uses mechanical means to stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen. It is typically used to treat skin conditions like wrinkles, scars, sunspots, and hyperpigmentation.
During this treatment, we move a hand-held device over your skin in a series of passes. Each time this device moves over your skin, it creates many tiny micro-channels in the surface layers. Your body will respond to the treatment by developing new skin cells that rise up and replace old, damaged skin tissue.
One appealing aspect to a microneedling treatment is that it can be combined with topical skin care products. It makes them work better because it allows them to penetrate more deeply into your skin. Gels, ointments, lotions, creams, and serums can bypass the barrier function of your skin by flowing through the microscopic channels created by the microneedling treatment process.
Many patients choose to undergo multiple microneedling treatment sessions because each individual treatment builds upon the results of prior sessions. Your results will appear very soft and natural because we are not making sudden changes to your facial contours. Instead, we are triggering the natural healing abilities of your skin to create a remodeling process. You should begin noticing results within weeks to months after your treatment, with additional results building over the following months.
Laser Skin Treatments
If you are dealing with scars, sun damage, or signs of aging, you may want to consider a laser skin treatment. One great thing about laser treatments is that they are able to precisely target defined areas and leave surrounding skin alone. This means that only skin in a select area is affected. Less skin damage means a shorter recovery time for you.
Laser Hair Removal
In addition to making an effective skin treatment, certain lasers are able to remove unwanted hair so that you no longer have to constantly shave, pluck, or wax in the area of treatment. We use a laser to selectively target hair follicles for destruction. The thermal energy transmitted by the laser will disable the hair follicle and prevent the future growth of unwanted hair.
You will most likely need a series of laser hair removal sessions because of the way that individual hair follicles grow. Each hair follicle is not always in the same growth phase as its neighbor. One hair follicle may be in a growth phase while another is in its dormant phase. Only a hair follicle in a growth phase can be treated. So undergoing multiple sessions at our medical spa allows our professional to catch each and every hair follicle when it happens to be in a growth phase and eligible for treatment.
The chemical peel is a great all-around medical spa treatment choice for anyone dealing with skin problems like acne scars, lines and wrinkles, or blemishes. There are different types of chemical peels, and the type you require can be determined at your consultation.
Some peels deal only with superficial skin problems like light wrinkles, superficial acne scars, and dull complexion. It is basically a mild form of exfoliation that removes dead skin cells, oils, and cellular debris from the surface of your skin. This has the effect of brightening your complexion and helping you appear more vigorous and youthful. Other peels are reserved for more stubborn skin problems.
Many people confuse BOTOX® with dermal fillers. Although they are both anti-aging treatments that involve injections, the two treatments are very different. Dermal fillers enhance facial volume as a way of minimizing static lines and wrinkles, while BOTOX® reduces the activity of facial muscles to minimize the appearance of dynamic wrinkles.
Dynamic wrinkles are those that are formed by underlying facial muscle contractions. Some examples are forehead wrinkles and those found between the eyebrows. BOTOX® prevents the transmission of nerve impulses from the brain to the treated muscles. This prevents their contractions and creates a smooth area at the site of injection.
