Am I a Good Candidate for a Chemical Peel?

smooth-skin
One of the reasons why individuals are so interested in chemical peels is because they have been able to effectively treat a wide variety of skin issues. They have been able to treat acne scars, other facial scarring, crow’s feet, aging skin, sun damage, wrinkles and moderate sagging skin. There are very few other treatments out there that can help an individual deal with so many problems at once. Before you schedule a consultation, you may be interested to know what really makes a good chemical peel candidate.

The very first thing that would qualify you as a good chemical peel candidate is having a skin issue that can actually be treated by a chemical peel. You would need to have at least one of the above-mentioned skin conditions. Also, you want to have realistic expectations about what the treatment can do for you. You need to understand how the treatment works, which will allow you to schedule downtime and take necessary steps to prepare for aftercare.

You must also have relatively healthy skin. Your skin must be free from infection, and you should not have cuts or broken skin. Also, if you have recently experienced a sunburn, you want to allow your skin to heal and then come in for treatment.

It is important for you to understand how chemicals peels work to prepare for treatment as well as to understand what your skin will actually go through when you come in for treatment. There are basically three types of chemical peels. The first is a superficial peel, sometimes referred to as a lunchtime peel. It is a very light peel and is used to smooth your skin and deal with mild discoloration.

The next option is a medium peel, which contains a stronger chemical solution and is designed to treat moderate skin problems. Then there is a deep peel, which gives you dramatic improvement in the appearance of your skin, but it requires some downtime.

The very best way for you to find out if a chemical peel is right for you is to schedule a consultation at Advanced Anti-Aging and Weight Loss in Evansville. During this meeting, we will help you decide on the best treatment to deal with your skin issues. Our chemical peel treatments can even be performed on the neck and hands!

Eliminate Lip Lines with BOTOX®

shutterstock_246528499
Lines around the lips are one of the most common signs of aging. They develop as the result of repeated muscle movements that leave the collagen layers of the skin deformed. This leads to a problem that is not only aesthetically aggravating, but one that is also difficult to treat. Treatments like dermal fillers tend to be quickly absorbed by the body as the result of the same muscle contractions. The good news is that there is a simple fix for lines around the lips: BOTOX®.

This injectable can effectively treat the underlying cause of lines and wrinkles stemming from muscle deformation. This allows these problems to be immediately minimized, which in turn can provide you with a substantial improvement in your appearance.

What is BOTOX®?

This is a unique treatment when it comes to minimizing lines and wrinkles on the face. It does not repair the damage that has already occurred, but it instead tries to limit the effects that the underlying causes of lines can have. It does so by affecting the communication between the brain and the muscles of the face. This limits how much the muscles can flex, which in turn limits the amount of active deformation that they can cause.

One of the great benefits of BOTOX® is the fact that only certain parts of the muscles are affected, which in turn means that you can still have wrinkles minimized without affecting your ability to express emotions or move your lips.

Why Would You Opt for BOTOX®?

The main reason to choose BOTOX® stems from the fact that it is unique in the way it treats fine lines and wrinkles around the lips. It is one of the few treatments able to stop the deformation of the skin for six months to two years. Once treated, you can receive other treatments to further minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the lips. Dermal fillers, such as the types that use hyaluronic acid, are ideal for providing a restoration that looks and feels natural.

Another reason to opt for BOTOX® concerns the way it can provide immediate results. Patients will generally see an immediate and lasting improvement to their lip lines when the product is used properly.

The last major reason to consider this treatment pertains to your other options. BOTOX® may be a more comfortable alternative to surgical treatment, which in turn may produce safer and more reliable results.

Is BOTOX® Right for You?

This injectable represents a versatile and effective way to treat a number of muscle-related lines, wrinkles and deformations in the skin. It can provide immediate and lasting results, which in turn can also prevent further lines around the lips from developing.

To determine if BOTOX® is appropriate for treating your lines around your lips or another set of muscle-related wrinkles, schedule a consultation at Advanced Anti-Aging and Weight Loss in Evansville. We can evaluate your face’s unique needs to match you with the most appropriate method of restoring your face to a more youthful state. Contact us today to book your appointment.

Venus Legacy™ for Cellulite Reduction

shutterstock_264377822
As we age, our skin begins to lose its plumpness and firmness. We may experience dimples, sagging, wrinkles or loose skin that can lead to self-consciousness. Topical products, exercise or other types of remedies often don’t help to reduce these problem areas, but there are professional cosmetic procedures that can help. One of the most versatile and effective of these is Venus Legacy™. We encourage you to learn about the benefits of Venus Legacy™ for cellulite reduction and overall body contouring.

About Venus Legacy™

This is a safe cosmetic treatment procedure that can effectively reduce a number of specific skin concerns that come with age. The procedure is safe, non-invasive and requires no downtime. Using a combination of multi-polar radiofrequency energy and pulsed electromagnetic fields, along with a proprietary technology known as VariPulse™, Venus Legacy™ is able to target stubborn fat and cellulite through the use of controlled heat energy. This heat energy can penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, increasing blood circulation and producing firming effects, along with skin that is plumper and brighter.

How It Works

A therapeutic heat matrix is produced through the unique and innovative Venus Legacy™ technologies. It is the radiofrequency energy that leads to a thermal reaction in the tissue, which in turn causes the body’s natural healing response to kick in and stimulate the production of collagen. Other building blocks of healthy skin, fibroblasts and elastin are also produced through this improved healing stimulation effect.

Treatment effects are enhanced when the optimal heat temperature leads to the release of hormones that break down and eliminate fat. The innovative technologies of Venus Legacy™ combine to both improve skin health and reduce fat, effects that are not offered through most other methods.

What to Expect

The Venus Legacy™ treatment itself is actually quite relaxing, with very little discomfort. With smooth and consistent movements, our practitioner will apply the device applicator to your skin where treatment is desired. A pulsing suction will be felt, along with increasing heat until it reaches a level that is comfortable. Expect the treatment to last between 15 and 40 minutes, depending on the area of the body that is being addressed and the extent of your cellulite or issue of concern.

Venus Legacy™ is a convenient treatment that offers a number of versatile results. To see how this treatment can benefit you, talk with the experts at Advanced Anti-Aging and Weight Loss in Evansville. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.

Burn Fat with Lipo-Light LED Light Therapy

shutterstock_229768270
Unwanted fat deposits are one of the most common problems that affect all types of patients. While patients who have lost weight will generally have them, people with a healthy weight can have them due to the way their bodies work.

The problem is that most procedures for removing this fat tend to be intense or involved. These procedures may require an extensive amount of recovery that can leave patients feeling uncomfortable with their bodies while producing suboptimal results.

The good news is that advances in spot removal of fatty tissue have occurred. Lipo-Light LED light therapy represents one of the most advanced methods for removing unwanted fat cells without the need for surgery. If you are sick and tired of your stubborn fat, then it is helpful to learn what Lipo-Light LED light therapy does, how it works and why it may benefit you more than other lipolysis treatments.

What is Lipo-Light LED Light Therapy?

This treatment is a cutting-edge technique designed to help patients remove undesirable fat deposits without the need for surgery. It works by activating natural processes within the cells designed to convert fat into energy, which in turn leads to less fat being stored.

The way it does this is by influencing the cells in fat deposits to lose their round shape. This results in the release of an enzyme known as lipase, which is one of the enzymes crucial to the natural elimination of fat cells. As the fat cells are broken down, they become water and fat. The fat is broken down by the body to be used as energy or processed through the lymphatic system as waste. The water is used throughout the body for everything from routine cellular function to the removal of waste.

How Do Treatments Work?

Treatments are straightforward. Our skilled technician cleans the area that will be treated by the light. The Lipo-Light LED instrument is applied for 20 to 30 minutes. Any remaining areas are treated to begin the release of fat cells as energy and waste.

Following the treatment, these cells begin to break down. Patients will see some results in the proceeding days and weeks. For a thorough treatment, multiple sessions will be required to remove one to two inches of fat from an area like the torso.

Why May Lipo-Light LED Light Therapy Benefit You?

The largest benefit of this treatment is the fact that it does not require you to undergo surgery. This results in expedited results, faster recovery times and fewer complications, such as scarring and uneven fat loss.

Another reason to consider this treatment pertains to the ease of the treatments. Each application requires just 20 to 30 minutes to treat moderate fat deposits upon the body.

The last major advantage pertains to the way fat is removed using natural processes already present within the body. This allows for a more even removal of fat, which in turn can produce more natural-looking and stunning results.

Remove Your Unwanted Fat Today

While Lipo-Light LED light therapy is designed to be used by any type of patient, it may not be the best treatment for you. To determine if this therapy is an ideal treatment for your unique body chemistry, schedule an appointment at Advanced Anti-Aging and Weight Loss in Evansville. We can match your goals with the latest in fat removal technology to help you acquire the body contours that you desire. Contact our office today to request a consultation.

What Is an IPL Photofacial?

shutterstock_78474148
Intense pulsed light therapy – abbreviated as IPL therapy – is a revolutionary cosmetic treatment that stimulates the body to create more collagen. It is generally used as a facial treatment, so it is often known as an IPL photofacial. This type of treatment is different from laser treatment, however.

An IPL photofacial uses a specialized instrument that pulses light in a variety of wavelengths. Depending on the depth of the treatment, the patient’s skin tone and skin thickness and the severity of the problem, certain wavelengths are selected.

We highly recommend this outpatient procedure for those who are concerned about the onset of age-related wrinkles due to a loss of collagen production, brittle skin that has lost moisture and the appearance of small discolorations in the skin.

How an IPL Photofacial Works

Before we perform this type of treatment, we examine the client’s face closely and determine the reason why wrinkles are forming. We measure the skin tone and the thickness of the skin where treatment is necessary.

The instrument used is a handheld device connected to a computer terminal. We set the wavelength so that the light energy will pass right through the epidermis to be absorbed by the lower dermal layers. This is where the heat energy is concentrated. The body responds to the heat energy by producing as much as 20 percent more collagen.

Each light pulse lasts only for a few milliseconds. In most cases, a treatment session lasts only about 20 to 30 minutes, which is why this procedure is often referred to as a lunchtime treatment. We apply a cooling gel to the skin prior to using the IPL instrument, and the patient will feel only slight tingling and a sensation of gentle heat.

What Patients Should Know

No downtime is required after an IPL photofacial. We usually schedule several treatment sessions, spaced about a week apart. The visible results aren’t immediately noticeable, but a continued increase in collagen production can last for several months after the sessions are completed.

Advantages of IPL Therapy

There is no surgery involved, nor is there any abrasive skin resurfacing performed when an IPL photofacial is chosen as the treatment method. Some individuals are sensitive to chemical peels because the acid used can actually cause permanent discolorations.

On the other hand, IPL therapy uses gentle pulsed light energy, which not only stimulates collagen production, but can also diminish the appearance of certain age spots – especially superficial ones – without the need for skin ablation or laser heat.

Learn More About IPL Photofacial Treatment

An IPL photofacial may be all you need to restore your face to its more youthful appearance. Schedule your own personal consultation with our professionals at Advanced Anti-Aging and Weight Loss in Evansville. You’ll get all the facts about how an IPL photofacial can turn back the clock and give you smoother, suppler facial skin. Contact us today to book your appointment to learn more.

 

Body Contouring with UltraShape® V3

shutterstock_187863497
Most body contouring procedures use extremely cold temperatures or thermal energy to destroy fat cells, but those can cause quite a bit of discomfort. UltraShape® V3, on the other hand, uses focused ultrasound waves to quickly and effortlessly destroy fat cells while leaving the other tissue untouched. For patients who are finally ready to eliminate subcutaneous fat without incisions or scars, few body contouring treatment options are as effective as UltraShape® V3.

A Look at Subcutaneous Fat

Every human body actually contains a number of different types of fat. Some of this fat protects our organs and holds our muscles together, but the outer subcutaneous layers of fat provide us with no benefits. This is the fat that often seems to develop overnight in areas such as the thighs, buttocks and midsection. This type of fat can also increase a patient’s risk of a wide variety of additional health problems.

Hormones and Fat

Getting rid of subcutaneous fat is no easy task. This is because our changing hormones create a number of interesting side effects as we grow older. Subcutaneous fat is stored near the midsection as an “emergency” energy supply. Hormones such as cortisol tell our bodies to store fat in case food will not be available in the future.

Even with a strict diet and rigorous exercise program, your body will do everything in its power to hold onto this fat. These are just some of the reasons why treatment options such as UltraShape® V3 have become so popular in recent years.

The Technology Behind UltraShape® V3

Over the last few decades, a number studies have found that our fat cells are much different than all of the other soft tissue cells in our bodies. These cells react in an unusual manner whenever they are exposed to extremely cold temperatures, thermal energy and even ultrasound waves.

UltraShape® V3 was developed with this knowledge in mind. During these body contouring sessions, concentrated ultrasound waves are directed at fat cells in order to weaken and destroy them.

The Benefits of UltraShape® V3

The biggest benefit of this unique body contouring procedure is the fact that it is completely non-invasive. While surgical options can be effective, most patients are not ready to take weeks off of work or live with scars for the rest of their life.

UltraShape® V3 is also one of the quickest fat removal treatments on the market. The average patient will be out of their appointment in just 20 minutes with no downtime afterward.

What to Expect

During and after the treatment, most individuals feel nothing more than a slight tingling sensation. On average, patients need at least three treatment sessions for the best results. For patients who do not gain weight in the future, this body contouring treatment can be a permanent solution to abdominal fat.

You can learn more about UltraShape® V3 during a consultation at Advanced Anti-Aging and Weightloss in Evansville. This simple treatment may be all that your body needs to look its best. Contact us today to schedule your appointment.

BOTOX® for Wrinkles

shutterstock_347446904
There are many joys that you experience as you get older. However, there are certain things that no one enjoys about getting older, and one of those things is wrinkles. As you get older, you begin to experience two types of wrinkles. The first is static wrinkles. These are the wrinkles that appear when your skin is exposed to the elements and you lose facial volume. The second type is dynamic wrinkles. These are the wrinkles that form on your face every time you make a facial expression. Thankfully, there are a variety of cosmetic treatments that can be used to treat both types of wrinkles. BOTOX® has proven to be effective at treating dynamic wrinkles.

Why BOTOX® Works

The basic idea behind how BOTOX® works is very simple. The solution is injected into the facial muscles. Every time you make a facial expression and your muscles contract, the skin above the muscles wrinkle. You can reduce the amount of wrinkles that appear when you use BOTOX®. When you receive injections, you can expect the product to last for at least three months.

Is BOTOX® Safe?

When this product is injected by one of our experienced providers, you can be sure that you will have the best results. This product has been approved by the FDA to treat wrinkles and has proven time and again that it is safe. You will know that you need another BOTOX® treatment after your dynamic wrinkles begin to appear again.

One thing that you should be aware of if you decide to get multiple BOTOX® treatments over a year or more is that the body is able to develop antibodies that can cause BOTOX® to be ineffective. If this happens to you, we will recommend other treatment options to help you treat your wrinkles.

A very thin needle is used for this treatment. Each individual will have different sensations when the needle is injected. Most individuals who have gone through treatment say that it is tolerable if we use ice packs or a topical cream to numb the area.

Schedule Your Appointment

After you visit our office for treatment, you can expect to see some results after a few days. However, the maximum effect will not take place until about two weeks after the injection. From there, you can expect the BOTOX® to work for up to several months. Contact Advanced Anti-Aging and Weightloss today. We proudly serve Evansville and surrounding areas.
