    Tag Archives: Skin Tightening

    Instant Facelift and Skin Tightening


    Face is aesthetically the most prominent part of the body, and the onset of aging signs will appear more conspicuously on the face. Although facelift plastic surgery can restore a youthful looking face but many people want to avoid a major invasive procedure for various reasons. For such candidates NovaThreads instant facelift and skin tightening offers a viable, non-surgical alternative.
    novathreads-logoThe procedure is particularly effective for the lower third of the face, neck and jaw line. It involves almost no downtime and produces natural looking outcomes without any notable discomfort. Board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin provide NovaThreads to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and surrounding locations.

    What are NovaThreads?

    novathreads-pdoNovaThreads is a unique facial rejuvenation treatment involving hypodermic needles that are preloaded with PDO absorbable sutures. PDO is a synthetic absorbable surgical suture made of polydioxanone. These sutures are often used to perform complex surgeries such as open heart surgery.
    PDO is widely accepted in medical usage because it is one of the safest available materials to be implanted in the body. In about four to six months of the procedure, the skin will fully absorb the suture. Unlike facial plastic surgery, NovaThreads treatment will not result in the formation of any scar tissue.

    How does it Work?

    The procedure of NovaThreads facial rejuvenation leverages the body’s natural selective inflammatory response. Once the procedure is performed, it will stimulate this response for the skin to naturally repair itself. Once the provider has inserted NovaThreads into the affected areas of the face and neck, the generation of fresh collagen fibers will be induced in the deeper skin layers.
    New collagen will add volume to the thinning areas of the face, smooth out the wrinkles and fine lines, and restore more youthful looking facial skin in a natural manner. The repair process of the skin will continue for about four to six months while the PDO suture gets gradually absorbed. This controlled healing occurs below the skin, creating more natural and sustainable outcomes.

    NovaMesh

    novathreads-numeshThis technique is designed to create a mesh below the skin. Two sutures are inserted vertically and three horizontally to create a mesh that is somewhat similar to a hashtag. The mesh under the skin becomes the foundation for the development of fresh collagen in the deeper layers of the skin, creating natural skin tightening from within.

    NovaLyft

    novathreads-nuliftResults with NovaLyft technique are relatively more dramatic. The ‘cogs’ in the PDO sutures provide a better grip underneath the skin. Sutures are inserted in a way that the provider can pull them in one or two directions. This allows for the creation of an instant skin repositioning in the treated area. New collagen production is triggered through this procedure, providing a subtle lift to the facial skin.
    Focused and hard working plastic surgeons at the Virginia Institute receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and nearby areas for NovaThreads procedure.

    Non Invasive Ultherapy Skin Tightening

    imagesUltherapy is an innovative skin tightening procedure based on ultrasound technology to achieve smoother and more youthful looking skin without plastic surgery. Many patients may not have proper information about this advanced non-invasive skin tightening technique, which makes it important for a treatment provider to educate them about all aspects of Ultherapy during the initial consultation.
    An experienced provider will also discuss the cost aspects of Ultherapy at the first appointment to ensure that the patient can weigh all their options and make an informed choice. MBody, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides Ultherapy to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, and surrounding communities.

    Price Comparison with Surgery

    Compared to a traditional plastic surgery for skin tightening, Ultherapy can prove to be a considerably more affordable and cost-effective procedure. A surgery will involve major cost components such as anesthesia expenditures, surgical room expenses, fee charged by the surgeon, and additional expenses such as prescription drugs, surgical accessories, medical tests and post-op visits to the surgeon’s office.

    All these cost components get avoided in Ultherapy. This procedure can be performed without anesthesia on an outpatient basis and usually performed as an in-office procedure. No post-operative costs are generally involved and most patients will not require any downtime or time off from work. Risk of complications is negligible, which means no unexpected futures costs may arise for the patient.

    Factors Influencing the Price

    The dollar figure of Ultherapy can vary from one practice to another depending on a few factors. The geographical location of the practice is an important element in determining the cost. Major urban centers and prime cities along the coastal areas usually have a higher average cost of living. Therefore, the costs of an aesthetics procedure, including Ultherapy, will typically be higher in these regions as compared to other areas.
    The quality standards of the practice where Ultherapy treatment is received will also make a difference to the cost. In any case, patients should seek such advanced and innovative treatments from a state of the art facility which is fully equipped to handle such procedures and has properly trained and experienced staff. At MBody, every procedure is performed under the leadership and guidance of qualified plastic surgeons.
    MBody receives patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, and nearby areas for Ultherapy and various other procedures.

    Insurance and Financing

    Ultherapy is primarily performed as an elective procedure for aesthetic enhancement. Therefore, the costs of the procedure are not likely to be covered by the insurance provider. But the patients most have several financing options available to them, which can allow them to make the payments in easy monthly installments.
    Professional medical care finance companies, bank loans, family borrowings, and credit cards are some of the common financing sources available to the patients. The provider’s office may also offer guidance with regard to insurance and financing.

    Before

    After

    Ultherapy has emerged as one of the popular non-surgical alternatives to achieve cosmetic skin tightening. For individuals who want to enhance their skin appearance without plastic surgery, Ultherapy is a credible non-invasive solution. At the time of initial consultation, the treatment provider will discuss various aspects of this procedure and may also present Ultherapy skin tightening before and after photographs.
    Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides Ultherapy to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, and surrounding communities.

    What are Ultherapy Skin Tightening Before and After Images?

    Before and after images in case of Ultherapy skin tightening procedure refer to a set of pictures belonging to an earlier patient who has received the same treatment with successful results. The pictures include images taken prior to Ultherapy and after Ultherapy at a stage when all treatment sessions are completed and full results of the procedure are visible.
    The treatment provider will obtain Ultherapy before and after images with the patient’s consent, just as in the case of a plastic surgery procedure. The goal of the provider is to use these photographs as a visual aid to educate new patients about Ultherapy and explain to them its potential effectiveness. This will enable new patients to understand what the procedure can or cannot do for them.

    Advantages

    When a woman or man decides to undergo Ultherapy, they may only have a vague idea of how this non-invasive treatment may help to achieve their skin tightening goals, and how their overall appearance may improve. Some individuals may require Ultherapy in one area, while others may need it in multiple areas for more comprehensive outcomes.
    In some cases, the treatment provider may recommend a combination of Ultherapy with other invasive or non-invasive treatments. For a new patient, it becomes easier to make the right decisions when Ultherapy before and after photos are made available. MBody, led by experienced plastic surgeons, receives patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, and nearby areas for Ultherapy.

    Being Realistic

    Experienced treatment providers recognize the need to make sure that the patient has a positive mindset, clear aesthetic priorities and realistic expectations before choosing an aesthetic procedure such as Ultherapy.
    Therefore, they will provide Ultherapy before and after photos at the very first appointment to ensure that the patient knows what to expect and what not to expect from the treatment. Patients with realistic expectations will typically achieve higher satisfaction levels from the results. The risk of any disappointment occurring at a later stage will also be reduced.

    Providing Photos Online

    A treatment provider may choose to provide Ultherapy before and after photos on their practice website under a dedicated “Photo Gallery” section. New patients can access the photos freely online and review them in the privacy and comfort of their home or office. If they feel encouraged after seeing the photos, they may decide to visit the practice for a personal Ultherapy consultation.
    Digital technology has increased the strength of the doctor and patient’s relationship. With these photos, doctors are saved the time in trying to explain to the patient what the outcome will be like. The old adage, a picture is worth a thousand words comes into place nicely here. Now patients can see the results that this procedure has done to other people and have a much better clue on what Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin and their center does.

    The CoolMini Applicator for the Submental Region

    The new CoolMini applicator is uniquely designed for small areas of fat, including the submental area. Over 500 CoolMini treatments have been performed to date as a result of pilot clinical work, clinical trials and our controlled European launch that commenced in June. The results, achieved in as little as 1-2 office visits, have been very encouraging with very high patient satisfaction and the same level of efficacy achieved with other CoolSculpting applicators.

    Here are a few facts from my notes taken during training a couple of weeks ago in relation to this treatment area:

    • 7.2 Million people would consider a non-surgical alternative for chin fat
    • 2014 ASDS survey, 68% of respondents said they wanted to reduce fat under their chins
    • 3rd highest area of patient concern

    A 2014 study conducted by The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) showed that approximately 67% of people were concerned with chin and neck fat, consistent with the previous year. Additionally, a recent study conducted in the United States revealed that 22.4 million people are interested in seeking non-invasive fat reduction solutions.

    “Many of my patients are frustrated with the fat they develop in the chin area because it is often hard to eliminate based on lifestyle changes alone, and the only available options to treat this area have been very invasive,” said Roy G. Geronemus, M.D., Director of the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York. “My practice has used the CoolSculpting procedure for many years to successfully reduce unwanted fat, and we are glad that we can now leverage this same technology to comfortably and non-surgically treat the double chin.” Read full press release
