September is filled with change: from back-to-school to shifting seasons, there’s a reason why this transformative period is also dubbed Self-Improvement Month. If you need a sign to focus on You — this is it. Here are our four favorite treatments to treat yourself, since self-improvement starts with feeling great about yourself both inside and out.
Wave goodbye to the signs of summer — and yes, we mean that literally. PicoSure is not your average laser; it’s a multifaceted procedure that uses laser technology to treat age spots, freckles, sun damage, pigmented lesions, wrinkles, and acne scars.
The PicoSure laser works by damaging skin cells deep in the dermis, which then signals a healing response known as “cell signaling.” This process activates the creation of collagen and elastin (aka all the good stuff your body naturally creates to plump your skin).
Although this may sound risky, the PicoSure uses a gentle pressure rather than heat — this means minimal pain and risk, with no downtime. The photomechanical effect is highly efficient in removing unwanted pigment as well as treating scars and wrinkles. The result will have you feeling refreshed and vibrant.
Whether you’re looking to keep your bikini body into autumn, or you’re getting a jump start on next year, it’s always the right time to start working toward your ideal aesthetic.
WarmSculpting body contouring treatments by SculpSure target and reduce fat cells safely in just 25 minutes without affecting the skin’s surface. With no downtime and no side effects, you’re able to return to all of your regularly scheduled activities immediately. SculpSure can help you slim down under the chin, and in the back, belly, love handles, and thighs.
After the treatment, fat cells are permanently destroyed and will not regenerate. However, don’t expect results for 12 weeks. Like all good things in life, it takes time.
Self-improvement means looking in the mirror and loving what you see. While this kind of confidence comes from within, a little boost on the outside never hurt anyone.
You’ve likely heard of Botox, but here’s our quick refresher on how it works: the active ingredient Botulinum toxin decreases muscle activity by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. With the injected muscle unable to contract, the treated wrinkles relax and soften for up to six months. Additionally, Botox can also reduce excessive sweating and help control the frequency and intensity of migraines.
Not all self-improvement needs to be physical, but we still recommend calming the nerves with an injection (literally).
If you’re looking to erase fine lines or contour your cheekbones, we have you covered. Injectables like Voluma smooth out the treated area by filling in the treated skin.
Here’s some more science for you: The core, active ingredient found in Voluma (and other dermal filler) is hyaluronic acid — a substance that’s already found naturally in the body. Hyaluronic Acid has the ability to store moisture and is responsible for giving the skin its hydrated and smooth look. When injected, the result is an instant facelift and fill that’s better than even the best contouring palette.
Since Voluma can last up to two years, you’ll be looking fabulous long past the official month for self-improvement. Bonus? Since fillers work right away, expect to leave our practice feeling and looking like the shiniest version of yourself.
