Micro-needling is a minimally invasive procedure that is used on the face to treat wrinkles, acne, large pores, and skin sagging. The physician uses a skin pen micro-needling tool with an atopic anesthetic. It generates collagen essential for the skin. Ideally, the skin is firmer, smoother, tighter, and brighter after the procedure.
IPL is a laser treatment used to treat wrinkles, spots, sunburn, varicose veins, freckles, and age spots. IPL is almost the same as laser treatment. Nevertheless, IPL emits light in many wavelengths mimicking a photo flash. In this case, a laser focuses on one wavelength. IPL uses laser heat to treat unwanted pigmentation without causing damages to the skin.
PRP is a procedure used to boost hair growth by healing problematic follicles. PRP works by extracting specific proteins from blood, then injecting them back in problematic areas. PRP can be used to treat androgenic alopecia, osteoarthritis, and tendon injuries.
Jawline fillers give the patient a fuller jawline. It eliminates sagging cheeks and a double chin giving the patient a well-structured face. Specialists use a variety of different fillers, which may contain synthetic calcium filler, to restructure your jaw.

Non-surgical volume reduction body contouring procedures are popular today. These include temperature-based fat reduction, skin tightening, skin toning, laser therapy, and other non-invasive procedures. In the past, patients got tummy tucks and liposuction, which involves major surgery. Today, results are achieved with injectables, lasers, and minimal procedures.
Young people are seeking Botox treatments today more than ever. Mostly, it is a preventative procedure to prevent future problems. Facial micro-needling with Botox is commonly used to fix saggy skin, puffy eyes, asymmetry, and wrinkles.
