Whether you’re spending the summer with friends, going on day trips or lounging at home, the heat of the season may leave you craving a skin pick-me-up to hydrate, replenish or protect your complexion. At Atagi Plastic Surgery & Skin Aesthetics, we offer a variety of summer-safe services that can help you get your glow on to make the most of the season!
Let’s dive into our best treatments for reclaiming your radiance:
An intense glow-getting treatment, Glotox combines the anti-aging effects of Botox® with the clarifying power of a VI Peel to smooth away fine lines and even out skin tone. VI Peel is known for its ability to reduce age spots and sun damage, while Botox reduces current wrinkles and staves off future lines. The result is youthful, revitalized skin. Improvements appear as soon as seven days following treatment — and with minimal downtime, you can hop right back into summer festivities in no time! For best results, we typically recommend a series of VI Peels spaced four to six weeks apart.
Harness your body’s own healing power with the help of microneedling! Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling works by creating micro-injuries in the skin to prompt new collagen growth, revealing renewed, healthy skin along with reduced wrinkles, fine lines and acne scars. Results can usually be seen within a few weeks of your first treatment, with optimal results appearing after a series of three treatments. Downtime is minimal, and patients experience minor redness for just a few days. Microneedling can be used on both the face and neck to help you reclaim your youthful glow.
Want to lift, tone and tighten your skin without downtime? Ultherapy could be your ideal treatment! Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to safely and effectively stimulate and tighten the skin’s deep structural support layers and jumpstart collagen production for stunning results. As your collagen is regenerated in the months following treatment, you’ll notice reduced skin laxity and improved tone. Ultherapy can be used on multiple areas of the body, including the face, neck and décolletage. Best of all, there’s no downtime — but be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher whenever you’re in the sun.
If you’re looking for an all-natural treatment to rejuvenate your skin, look no further than a PRF facial! PRF stands for platelet-rich fibrin, a concentrated portion of your own blood that’s packed with healing properties and growth factors. Before applying the PRF, we use either microneedling or laser skin resurfacing to prepare the skin for maximum absorption. This combination of treatments not only allows you to reap the benefits of the nutrients in your own blood, but it also boosts the skin’s natural healing ability, leaving you with brightened skin, diminished lines and wrinkles and more even skin tone. Downtime is minimal; you may experience a sensation similar to a sunburn which will dissipate in the hours and days following treatment.
Specifically designed to treat the initial signs of sun damage and the appearance of aging skin, Moxi is a state-of-the-art “prejuvenation” treatment that can help you achieve stunning results with minimal to no downtime. Moxi’s laser energy creates thousands of fractionated treatment zones in the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing response to replace these damaged skin cells with new, healthy skin while replenishing collagen. This treatment is usually used on the face, neck and chest, but it can also help renew the skin elsewhere on the body like the arms and hands. If you’re looking for a quick skin refresh, you may only need one treatment to achieve your desired results. If you’re seeking more dramatic improvements, we recommend a series of three to four treatments.
