Fractora is a combination of two popular skin rejuvenation techniques. It combines radio frequency and micro needling techniques. During this process, fine micro pins penetrate the skin and activate the dermal layer. Radio frequency is then delivered into tissues under the layer of the skin. This technique causes the body to start producing new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. These three substances work together to restore firmness, vibrancy and the skin’s natural beauty.
Both men and women can benefit from Fractora. Though it is ideal for anyone due to being non-invasive, patients with severe facial aging may want to consider a more in-depth treatment for maximum benefits. The Fractora procedure is pain-free and there is no recovery time, no bruising and no bleeding following treatment. Results are often felt immediately but more noticeable results will occur as the skin repairs itself with the release of collagen and elastin.
Cool sculpting Plus
The Hillelson-Whipple Clinic is the only practice in central Virginia to offer Cool Sculpting Plus. This differs from the typical Cool Sculpting as it improves results by at least 60 percent. This is a revolutionary cold therapy fat reduction treatment that uses a process to target and freeze unwanted fat, destroying the fat cells, which will then be gradually absorbed by the body’s natural metabolic functions. This process takes a few months though the results are worth waiting for.
Spider Vein Therapy
There are two main options for those concerned with removing Spider Veins:
Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a solution deep into the vein. This displaces the blood making the vein immediately appear lighter. It is recommended for use on larger veins.
Laser Vein Therapy uses pulses of concentrated light to coagulate the blood within. As this disrupts the blood flow, the vein will no longer function eventually being reabsorbed by the body. Both provide excellent results and Dr. Hillelson will discuss both options and additional details on these procedures during a consultation.
The term chemical peel refers to a group of cosmetic treatments involving the application of a mild acid to the skin’s surface. These acids are usually derived from a botanical source. The process involves the breakdown of the bonds holding the dead cells, and as these dead skin cells are sloughed off, the top layer of skin will eventually peel. Hence the name of this versatile, effective procedure. There is a chemical peel option to benefit most any skin type or ethnicity.
Botox is commonly used to treat the first noticeable signs of aging. After repetitive facial movements over the years skin will develop deep creases and lines. Botox is applied to the target area using a fine needle. The injections are painless and safe for any age, skin type and ethnicity. The Botox blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. Botox can greatly benefit the areas around the mouth, forehead creases, and crows feet around the eyes.
