CoolSculpting® is one of the most revolutionary non-surgical cosmetic procedures to come along in quite some time. This method of removing excess fat in isolated areas of the body offers many patients an alternative to surgical liposuction. CoolSculpting® can help individuals reduce stubborn fat in the abdomen, thighs, back, love handles, and other regions without the need for surgery or anesthesia. Plus, many patients do not require downtime following the procedure and are able to get right back to their daily routines.
BTL Exilis Ultra 360™ Skin Tightening and Body Contouring
For individuals looking to address loose, inelastic skin, or to maintain the existing firmness of their skin for as long as possible, the BTL EXILIS ULTRA 360™ treatment system may be an ideal option. This state-of-the-art technique combines the rejuvenating power of ultrasound and radiofrequency waves to stimulate collagen, improve dermal elasticity, and produce a skin tightening effect to achieve a smoother, more youthful appearance. The BTL EXILIS ULTRA 360™ platform can also be utilized to help individuals reduce excess fat pockets in certain areas and provide enhanced body contours.
Cellulite Reduction with BTL Cellutone®
The BTL Cellutone® technique is an innovative way to combat a very frustrating skin concern: cellulite. For many years, finding effective non-surgical treatments for cellulite reduction could be a challenging prospect, but recent advances in skin rejuvenation technologies have paved the way for treatments such as BTL Cellutone® to minimize signs of the telltale “dimples” and skin depressions associated with cellulite with successful results. This treatment uses high-frequency vibrations to target the bands deep within the skin that are causing cellulite to form, ultimately helping to weaken these structures and allow the skin to appear smoother.
Shaw Plastic Surgery offers a variety of popular non-surgical solutions for treating wrinkles and expression lines, allowing patients to restore a more youthful appearance. BOTOX® Cosmetic can be an ideal way to minimize signs of crow’s feet, forehead creases, frown lines, and other wrinkles. These concerns usually form when making repetitive facial expressions and often deepen over time. BOTOX® Cosmetic can be an excellent treatment to slow down the aging process and smooth common wrinkles in the upper face.
Loss of fullness in the cheeks, lips, temples, or other facial features can be a key sign of facial aging. As collagen and elastin production diminishes, many patients wish to correct age-related volume loss. Dermal fillers in the JUVÉDERM® line of products can restore volume in specific facial features, as well as enhance the proportions and contour of the lips and cheeks. JUVÉDERM® products — which include Volbella, Vollure, Voluma, Ultra, and Ultra Plus — can also be injected to smooth away severe wrinkles and folds, rejuvenating the skin with long-lasting results.
KYBELLA® Double Chin Reduction
Tired of living with a double chin? KYBELLA® is an injectable treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat). Fat cells in the area of injection are naturally metabolized, often revealing a slimmer facial appearance and a sleeker jawline. Best of all, treatment is quick and there is typically no need for downtime.
Chemical peels are prescribed by Dr. Shaw for patients with mild to moderate skin imperfections who want to improve signs of fine lines, wrinkles, and roughness, as well as conditions such as melasma and hyperpigmentation. Chemical peels help provide vibrant and radiant-looking skin with minimal downtime. Options from our “Shaw Formulas” line of chemical peels include the Renewal Peel and the Brilliant Brightening Peel.
DiamondGlow® Facial (Dermalinfusion)
Also known as “dermalinfusion,” the DiamondGlow® Facial offers a way to make your skin reflect a healthier, more vibrant glow. DiamondGlow® is essentially a medical-grade facial that utilizes an innovative technique: the treatment exfoliates damaged and dry skin, extracts the skin’s surface (including clogged pores), and nourishes the skin with a serum composed of professional-strength ingredients to provide improved hydration, healthier skin, a smoother texture, and a reduction in signs of age and hyperpigmentation.
Stem Cell Growth Factor Solutions
Stem cell therapy can be a highly effective non-surgical treatment to revitalize skin and/or hair cells, stimulating the production of new collagen and healthier, softer tissue. At Shaw Plastic Surgery, our team uses advanced AnteAGE MD® stem cell growth factors to rejuvenate the face — allowing a more youthful complexion — or improve sparse, balding hair. Stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require surgery or major downtime.
Dr. Shaw offers the advanced SkinPen® microneedling technique for skin rejuvenation. Microneedling is designed to help the skin repair and restore itself by creating tiny channels in the targeted area, which can stimulate new collagen and elastin. This process can ultimately diminish signs of aging, scarring, and discoloration, as well as improve many other skin concerns. Microneedling can be performed in combination with AnteAGE MD® stem cell serums to infuse the skin with rejuvenating growth factors and cytokines that can help produce even more comprehensive results. Dr. Shaw will talk to you about your goals and help you decide whether microneedling is an ideal option for your needs.
CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
The extraordinary power of laser energy has many effective applications for aesthetic enhancement. With laser skin resurfacing, Dr. Shaw can reduce prominent signs of wrinkles, sun damage, loose skin, and other common concerns to give the skin a more youthful, even, and healthy appearance. This offers a range of benefits for the tone, texture, and firmness of aging skin.
