BOTOX® COSMETIC AND DERMAL FILLERS
Shaw Plastic Surgery offers a variety of popular non-surgical solutions for treating wrinkles and expression lines, enhancing volume in specific facial features, and restoring a more youthful appearance. BOTOX® Cosmetic can be an ideal way to minimize signs of crow’s feet, forehead creases, and other concerns, while dermal fillers in the JUVÉDERM® line of products and others such as RADIESSE® and Sculptra® Aesthetic can enhance volume and contour of the lips and cheeks, smooth away severe wrinkles and folds, and rejuvenate the skin with long-lasting results.
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). It’s quick and there is typically no need for downtime.
DiamondGlow® Facial (Dermalinfusion)
Also known as “dermalinfusion,” the DiamondGlow® Facial offers a way to achieve skin that reflects a healthier, more vibrant glow. DiamondGlow® is essentially a medical-grade facial which utilizes an innovative technique that 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 reduction in signs of age and hyperpigmentation.
Treat yourself to a HydraFacial®! This “upgraded” facial treatment can reduce signs of age, discoloration, enlarged or clogged pores, and address many other common skin concerns. A HydraFacial® is designed to exfoliate and cleanse the skin, followed by infusion of a solution that can provide significant hydration and promote dermal health. This comprehensive facial can ultimately give the skin a smoother, more youthful sheen. Plus, the treatment itself has been compared to a pleasant, light massage.
Chemical peels are prescribed by Dr. Shaw for patients with mild to moderate skin imperfections who wish 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.
Dr. Shaw offers the advanced Rejuvapen™ 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 age, scarring, and discoloration, as well as improve many other skin concerns. Microneedling can be performed in combination with PRP therapy (described below) to infuse the skin with natural growth factors that can help produce even more comprehensive results. Dr. Shaw will talk with you about your goals and help you decide whether microneedling is an ideal option for your needs.
PLATELET-RICH PLASMA THERAPY
Platelet-rich plasma therapy, commonly referred to as PRP, is a revolutionary method of using growth factors from one’s own blood to achieve truly natural rejuvenation. By taking a small amount of blood and injecting its plasma into areas of skin that are targeted for aesthetic enhancement, we can infuse the skin with the body’s natural healing agents to help minimize signs of age and improve skin texture. This treatment can often be a good solution for acne scars, crow’s feet, and lines that have developed in the mid-face and around the mouth. PRP can also be helpful for improving a number of various skin concerns in other areas of the body—it can even be used to address stretch marks and thinning hair.
CO2 LASER SKIN RESURFACING
With state-of-the-art CO2 laser skin resurfacing, Dr. Shaw can help many individuals diminish signs of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and a variety of other common conditions. Laser therapy can eliminate outer layers of damaged skin to bring forth the healthier layers underneath, ultimately helping patients achieve more youthful-looking skin and a more refreshed appearance.
