Rejuvenating the Tone, Texture, and Beauty of Your Skin with Microneedling

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Microneedling is a unique non-surgical skin-rejuvenation treatment that takes advantage of the skin’s natural healing process to deliver noticeable aesthetic improvements. It helps to improve the tone, texture, and appearance of your skin and is perfect for addressing acne, scars, age lines, and other aesthetic skin issues.

The treatment uses a special device that is equipped with a cluster of oscillating needles. The device is carefully passed over the skin, where it creates multiple tiny wounds on the skin’s surface.

These tiny wounds stimulate the production of collagen and elastin within the skin, two proteins that are essential for tight, strong, and healthy skin. The collagen and elastin produced by the treatment repair the skin and help to thicken the dermis, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines.

Microneedling can be performed on any area of the body and is safe and effective on all skin types, even sensitive skin. If microneedling sounds like the ideal procedure for restoring the smooth and radiant appearance of your skin, contact the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery to schedule a consultation.

Liposuction – Traditional vs. VASER

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Traditional liposuction is performed by inserting a hollow tube known as a cannula into the body through several small incisions. Tumescent fluid is injected into the areas first to numb them, control bleeding, and make the removal of fat easier. The surgeon will manipulate the cannula to loosen the fat in the area so that it can be easily suctioned out.

Although this method is effective, stubborn fat can be difficult to remove. Removal can require more aggressive motions, which may lead to increased tissue damage, bruising, and swelling. The procedure is also incapable of addressing loose sagging skin.

VASER liposuction, known as ultrasound-assisted liposuction, also uses both a cannula and tumescent fluid. In addition to these, it features a special device that emits pulses of low-level ultrasound energy. VASER lipo is not laser lipo. The ultrasonic vibrations help to loosen up and break apart the fat cells without requiring the use of aggressive movements that can be traumatic to the body.

VASER has also been shown to help tighten the skin, which enhances the appearance of the body’s natural contours and creates a smoother body surface. Many patients find that VASER produces less post-operative discomfort and offers a shorter recovery period.

At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, we are committed to providing our patients with the most advanced and effective procedures available that offer outstanding results through safe and highly effective methods. Contact our office to schedule a consultation for your liposuction procedure.
