Cosmetic injectables are a quick and efficient way to rejuvenate the facial appearance without surgery. Depending on the product, injectables can be used to soften the appearance of facial wrinkles, lines, creases and scars. Some injectables can add volume to flat or hollow facial areas, including the cheeks. Cosmetic injectables can also be used to fill in naturally thin or aged lips.
Treatment with cosmetic injectables typically takes less than 30 minutes. No downtime is involved; you will be able to resume your normal activities immediately after treatment. The results of injectables are temporary and can last anywhere from several months to a couple of years, depending on the specific product. Repeat treatments are needed to maintain your younger-looking appearance.
Chemical peels are exfoliative treatments that involve applying a chemical solution to the skin. This, in turn, causes the dull and dead skin cells on the overlying skin to slough off and reveal a healthier and fresher layer of skin. Chemical peels vary in strength and can be adjusted to match your skin type. They can address an array of skin concerns including wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores and scars.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive option for patients who seek tighter, younger-looking skin. The treatment delivers ultrasound energy to the deep layers of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural collagen regeneration process. This lifts the skin gradually for a younger-looking appearance. Ultherapy can be used to treat sagging skin on the eyebrows, neck and chin, as well as wrinkles on the chest.
Scar Treatment with Silagen
Scarring is one of the inevitable realities of cosmetic surgery. Horvath Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center helps patients achieve beautiful results and minimal scarring with the advanced Silagen Scar Refinement System. This line of medical-grade silicone products, which includes gels and sheets, works by creating a protective barrier over the scar, which helps increase hydration and stop excessive collagen buildup. This, in turn, helps flatten and minimize the appearance of the scar and scarring side-effects including itching, redness and pain. Our team can provide you instructions regarding when and how to use the Silagen Scar Refinement System following your surgery.
