Aesthetic medicine improves cosmetic appearance by treating conditions like scars, skin laxity, wrinkles, moles, excess fat, cellulite, unwanted hair, skin discoloration, and spider veins. Aesthetic medicine also includes dermatology, reconstructive surgery, and plastic surgery. Here at the PA Vascular Institute, we specialize in noninvasive procedures to give clients stunning results. Although aesthetic medicine procedures are usually elective, they can significantly improve quality of life, psychological well-being, and social function.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are ideal for those struggling with hair loss. During this procedure, we draw blood and spin it into a centrifuge to separate and remove PRP from the rest of the blood. PRP increases growth factors in the scalp to either complement the recovery of your hair loss restoration procedure or as a stand-alone procedure. We draw the blood sample with cutting-edge technology to separate the platelets and plasma from the other components in the sample.
Botox® is an injection mainly used for its ability to reduce and smoothen facial wrinkles. Results are typically seen in just a few days and will last for several months. At some point, a touch up may be useful. This minimally invasive treatment takes only minutes to execute. We use a fine needle to dispense the medication directly onto the facial muscle. This common cosmetic procedure relaxes facial muscles that form wrinkles and lines. It’s typically used on frown lines, forehead furrows and crow’s feet.
Juvederm® is an injectable dermal filler that plumps and smoothes skin from the inside out. It’s a smooth, hyaluronic acid-based gel formula. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body, playing a vital role in tissue repair. It also maintains water beneath the skin’s surface, creating the cushiony appearance and texture of youthful skin. It’s used to add volume to the lips and improve shallow facial contours, so your skin looks youthful and replenished. If you suffer from severe facial folds and wrinkles, this is just what you need.
We utilize two innovative treatments when it comes to body sculpting: UltraShape® & VelaShape®
UltraShape destroys fat cells without causing you pain or harming the surrounding tissue, nerves, or muscle. The ultrasound energy eliminates the walls of fat cells in your body, releasing the fat in the form of triglycerides. The triglycerides are processed through your liver and removed from the body naturally.
The UltraShape procedure is a pleasant weight removal experience. It’s nonsurgical, so there are no incisions or anesthetics, nor are there scars or significant recovery regimens. Treatment only takes an hour at most, and when it’s over, you can get right back to your everyday life.
VelaShape is a noninvasive body contouring treatment to reduce cellulite. It helps you achieve a toned, contoured and well-shaped body over three weight loss treatment sessions. You’ll look and feel more youthful without downtime or significant discomfort.
