SKIN REMODELING

Skin remodeling treatments stimulate new collagen production and rearrange existing collagen to help plump and tighten the skin for a more youthful appearance. Collagen is one of the main elements in our body that keeps skin looking firm. In other words, the more collagen production you have, the more supple your skin will look and feel.

Some of the most popular treatments for skin remodeling in our Nashville clinic include:

Microneedling (with/without PRP or radiofrequency)
Evoke
PDO Threading

MICRONEEDLING

Microneedling can refer to a variety of treatments that can be done using PRP, radiofrequency or with the MicroPen alone. While all 3 provide significant results, not every skin type if the sam, so neither is the treatment recommendation.

The advancements in the MicroPen have evolved and left many of our patients as happy as can be. While others have strongly benefited from the advanced technology of radiofrequency (RF) used in our Morpheus8 treatments for the face and body. Not to list PRP last, as it has definitely gained popularity due to its nickname as the ‘vampire facial’ has grown exponentially over the past several years.

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), also known as medical skin microneedling.

Men and women of all ages, from young people to older adults, can benefit from dermaplaning. Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, Alison simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. This is a great treatment to offer to patients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream, and may be transferred to the fetus or the child. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin.

The skin needling system allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer, and younger looking skin.

Fractional Skin Resurfacing – The Fractora delivers targeted bipolar radiofrequency (RF) energy to various selectable depths in the skin. Fractora meets and exceeds the results of fractional CO2 without the associated downtime, prolonged redness, and pigmentation drawbacks. Fractora achieves full-scale treatment depths with customizable fractional energy to improve superficial skin tone problems (photo damage) to deep textural concerns (wrinkles and tightening). Practitioners can select between variable depths, densities and energy levels for results that were previously unattainable without excisional surgery. Fractora can be used on all areas that can benefit from skin renewal. The most commonly treated areas include: lower eyelid, crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, jowls, smile lines, neck and décolletage.
