Do you have frown lines?

Glabellar lines, or “frown lines,” are vertical wrinkles on the forehead that appear between the eyebrows. The appearance of these lines can worsen as collagen in the skin continues to break down. Frown lines, along with other facial wrinkling, are usually caused by the interaction of a few different factors. Deep frown lines can be caused by aging and sun exposure, skin loses elasticity, or damaging effects from the UV light. The genetic make-up and hormones can lead to change in a person’s skin.

    Belotero

    BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler – Available at Rajeunir Medical Spa

    Rajeunir Medical Spa is proud to introduce you to BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler. A dermal filler as unique as you are. Specially designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct facial contours. By adapting to the individuality of your skin, it softens lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for smooth and natural results that are uniquely you.

    If you’d like to restore youthful fullness to your face, enjoy plump lips, enhance shallow contours or soften those facial creases and wrinkles, dermal fillers may be the answer. Dermal fillers have been called “liquid facelifts” because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime.

    Although they can’t help with excess sagging skin, these soft tissue fillers can add more volume and provide immediate results at a lower cost than surgery. These treatment aren’t permanent, however, and they must be repeated and maintained.

    Some dermal fillers are used in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation treatments such as injections of botulinum toxin. Your plastic surgeon will assess your needs and recommend one or a combination of treatments to achieve your desired results.

    BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above the lip line).

    BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler is made of a material called hyaluronic acid or HA. HA naturally exists as a component of your skin. By binding to water, it fills in wrinkles and folds, allowing immediate and smooth correction.

    The Aging Process

    Aging is a part of life, and as the years pass, the less vibrant, refreshed and youthful the skin may begin to look. In youthful skin, there is an abundance of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid which give it volume, support and suppleness. As a part of the aging process, these natural support structures become less plentiful. The result is facial lines, wrinkles and skin laxity – all of which rob the skin of its youthful, fresh appearance.

  • Fractional Skin Resurfacing

    Restore your Skin’s Natural Beauty with Fractional Skin Resurfacing

    Nothing is as beautiful as soft, smooth, healthy skin. Unfortunately, our skin is subject to numerous factors that leave it less than perfect. Time, heredity, and gravity all do their part to create fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the mouth and eyes. Scarring associated with acne or other injury may also play a part. Rajeunir Medical Spa continues to use industry-leading technology. Fractional Non-Ablative Skin Resurfacing is the only method of skin resurfacing that offers excellent results with no downtime. Fractional Skin Resurfacing treatments deliver focused “microbeams” of heat that penetrate deep into the dermis for the most effective and longest lasting results possible. The heated tissue starts a natural healing process that forms fresh new tissue. This results in a decrease of sunspots, fine lines, wrinkles, melasma, and acne scarring; revealing a luminous, more desirable skin tone and texture.

    Fractional Skin Resurfacing treats the following conditions:

    • Acne Scars
    • Melasma
    • New Surgical Scars
    • Red Stretch Marks
    • Crow’s Feet
    • Fine Lines
    • Skin Laxity
    • Skin Crepiness

    Fractional Skin Resurfacing works well with Skin Analysis and Obagi Condition & Enhance.

    What are the benefits of Fractional Skin Resurfacing?

    • New skin texture
    • Reduce and remove fine lines
    • Reduce and remove acne scars
    • Reduce and remove melasma
    • Minimal downtime
    • Non-surgical
    • Minimal pain

    Is Fractional Skin Resurfacing safe?

    The Fractional Non-Ablative approach stimulates quick healing, while leaving your skin’s surface intact with no lasting redness. In addition, Fractional Skin Resurfacing penetrates to a very precise, controlled depth, making the procedure safe and predictable.

    Is Fractional Skin Resurfacing painful?

    A cool roller will prepare your skin for the heat of the treatment. A topical anesthetic may be applied, however, most people tolerate the treatment comfortably without the use of any anesthetic.

    What should I expect after the treatment?

    You may experience lingering redness, warmth, swelling, or tightness in the treated area, which fades in a few hours of treatment. Some patients choose to return to work or other activities immediately following treatment.

    How long before I see results?

    Because the light pulses are confined to narrow columns in the skin, much of the skin is left unaffected and there is a quick healing process; most people notice positive changes in skin tone and texture within a few days.

    What advantages does Fractional Skin Resurfacing have over other treatments?

    Ablative skin resurfacing techniques, such as CO2 lasers and plasma ablation, have a long healing process, leaving red, raw skin. Other Fractional techniques use a blue dye that will remain on the skin long after the treatment has been administered. With Rajeunir Medical Spa’s Fractional Skin Resurfacing, there is no persistent redness, or residual effects from dyes, thus making it possible for you to continue with your day.

    Pre-Treatment Instructions

      • Discontinue sun tanning and the use of tanning beds and self-tanning creams 4 weeks before and throughout the treatment course. This will reduce the chance of skin color changes, and development of new lesions.
      • Always use an SPF 30 or greater sunscreen on all exposed treatment areas and re-apply every 2 hours throughout the day. Wear protective hats and clothing.
      • Discontinue use of exfoliating creams such as Retin-A and other skin exfoliating products 2 weeks prior to and during the entire treatment course.
      • Discontinue use of Oral Isotretinoin/Accutane for 6 months prior to and during treatment. Accutane changes the underlying structure of the skin which may cause an increase skin sensitivity to light.
      • If you have a history of Herpes outbreaks in the area of treatment you should consult your Primary Care Provider for medical evaluation and possible antiviral therapy prior to treatment.
      • An accurate diagnosis, by a Physician, of abnormal lesions or brown spots prior to treatment is necessary before treatment of lesions. Failure to do so, may delay proper treatment.

      • A mild sunburn-like sensation is expected. This usually last 2-24 hours but can persist up to 72 hours. Mild swelling and/or redness may accompany this, which usually resolves in 2-3 days. In some cases, prolonged redness or blistering may occur.
      • Apply cool/ice compresses and/or 1% Hydrocortisone cream to treatment areas for 10-15 minutes every hour for the next 4 hours, as needed, to reduce discomfort or swelling.
      • The evening following the treatment, sleep with head elevated to reduce swelling.
      • The treated area can be gently cleansed and polysporin can be applied if needed.
      • Skin can become gritty 3-4 days following treatment. Do not pick, scratch or
        remove skin. This will prevent unwanted side effects.
      • Direct sunlight to the treated area should be avoided. Daily application of a
        SPF30 with zinc oxide is recommended.
      • Until redness has completely resolved avoid swimming, hot tubs/Jacuzzis and activities that cause excessive perspiration.
