Carillon Minneapolis offers a wide variety of cosmetic surgery and anti-aging treatments. We’re always looking forward to incorporating the latest innovations and cutting edge techniques into the repertoire of services we offer patients. This summer, we have several new and unique procedures to offer to our patients. These procedures vary in terms of effects and methods—but they all contribute to helping our patients achieve their desired outcomes.
These novel procedures are popular with patients in large part because they are often able to generate great results with minimal or zero downtime. Of course, every procedure is different, so results and recovery will depend on the specifics of your case. But patients love having the large variety of options these procedures provide.
Volbella for Lips!
Eliminating lines and wrinkles on the face is something that dermal fillers have been accomplishing for quite some time. Using Juvederm, Voluma, or Radiesse to replace lost volume and make the face appear more youthful has become routine for many patients. There’s a filler option, it seems, for every unique part of the face (in large part because the face is complex, and this is often the best way to achieve optimal results).
Treating the lips with dermal fillers can be more challenging because the lips themselves are quite delicate. Juvederm Volbella, however, is specially designed to eliminate lines and wrinkles in the lips. It’s able to achieve this because the particles of hyaluronic acid-based filler in Volbella are quite small. And results are more natural than with traditional Juvederm. Juvederm is still a great choice if you’re wanting full and plump lips.
Volbella injections are able to achieve incredibly fine results in the lips. For most patients, this means that:
- Lips will end up looking smoother
- Lips will look more youthful
- Lips may even appear larger (in part because wrinkles can make the lips look small compared to the rest of the face)
- Lips will look more vibrant/radiant
Getting a Volbella injection can help patients improve confidence and self-esteem. The results look incredibly natural (due to the very fine particles), so most people won’t even begin to guess that you’ve had a cosmetic procedure performed. They’ll probably just notice you look good!
Sciton Profractional Treatments
While dermal fillers are incredibly versatile, there are some things they can’t do. Treating the surface of the skin is one of those things. That’s why patients who want to address specific issues of the skin will often turn to directed energy treatments of one kind or another.
Sciton Profractional Therapy is among the most advanced directed energy treatments available at Carillon Minneapolis. As with most fractional therapy treatments, Sciton Profractional Therapy only targets a small percentage of your skin (or a small fraction, hence the name) in order to achieve broader results. But when those tiny areas of skin are exposed to the laser, your body’s own healing response begins in earnest, rejuvenating the surrounding skin.
Sciton Profractional Therapy can be used to treat the following conditions:
- Acne scars
- Discoloration of the skin
- Small imperfections in the skin
- Undesired texture of the skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles on the face
- Age spots and sun damage
It usually takes a few days to recover from a Sciton Profractional Laser treatment. And it may take several treatments in order to achieve your final results. But Sciton Profractional treatments offer patients an option for results that might otherwise be difficult to achieve.
It’s true that Kybella injections very nearly don’t fit into the “new” category any longer. Kybella has been on the market for over a year now, but it keeps getting more popular. We’ve written about it several times and the reason for that is pretty straightforward: it keeps getting great results.
Kybella is specifically designed to treat submental fat—also known as the “double chin.” Fat around the jawline can develop for a wide range of reasons, not all of which have to do with your diet or exercise habits. Indeed, the development of a double chin is often genetic.
Unfortunately, getting rid of your double chin tends to be a difficult task using only diet and exercise because neither or those activities can “target” fat loss. This makes Kybella particularly appealing—it’s a great way to eliminate a double chin without the need for surgery.
Kybella is able to do this because it’s composed of a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid. Despite its rather imposing name, deoxycholic acid is found naturally in the human body—it’s the chemical responsible for breaking down fat. That’s why Kybella works so well: it’s simply using your body’s own natural processes to target the breakdown of fat in a specific area.
More Procedures are Always on the Way
Sometimes, the newest procedure is the most popular. In other cases, it might take a technique a little time to catch on. There’s no “right way” for any procedure to become popular. What’s more important is that patients are finding the procedures that are right for them.
Volbella injections, Sciton Profractional therapy and Kybella treatments are all powerful (and at this point in time, popular) options for patients who want to accomplish different things. But because those options—and many more—exist, patients are able to achieve results that can be perfect for them.
In this way, new procedures tend to complement each other as often as compete with one another. The popular procedures offered at Carillon Minneapolis are designed to help you find the solution for your particular desires. Whether you’re trying to treat wrinkles or lines on the lips, age spots or sun damage, or get rid of fat, there’s a solution that might work for you.
