Nowadays cutting-edge non-surgical techniques for facial and body rejuvenation offer highly effective solutions to restore and rejuvenate quickly, safely, and comfortably, without invasive surgery and long healing periods.
These techniques are suitable for people seeking to reverse the noticeable signs of sun damage, aging, or exposure to damaging environmental toxins, address a relatively minor but still concerning aesthetic issue, reduce a few unwanted curves for a sleeker, toned body, or merely restore a youthful, dazzling glow.
The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides a wide range of surgical and non-surgical aesthetic treatments to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg, Tysons Corner, Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and surrounding communities.
J-Plasma Skin Tightening for the Face
J-Plasma is a revolutionary treatment that uses cool helium plasma technology on the underside of sagging facial skin to produce a tightening effect. This procedure is minimally invasive and does not involve any deep incisions, cutting of tissues, or pulling and sutures.
The treatment device streams helium plasma heated to 100 degrees Fahrenheit right beneath the skin. This subdermal treatment is strong but safe enough to heat even thinning skin tissues where the generation of collagen has slowed down significantly.
J-Plasma is an effective treatment, especially for ‘crepey’ skin, sagging skin around the jowls or jawline, and thinning skin around various facial areas.
This is an innovative, minimally-invasive technique which involves the use of neuromodulators and dermal fillers to fight the signs of aging. The liquid facelift now makes it possible to rejuvenate the facial appearance in-office without the need for invasive plastic surgery.
The liquid facelift is suitable for patients seeking:
- Restores the naturally beautiful contours of the face
- Natural-looking and gentle lift of the entire face or only specific areas
- A gentle and more youthful smile
- A rested and alert appearance
- Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines
- Reduction of under eye circles and bags
- Mitigates the appearance of a constant frown by lifting the mouth corners
BodyTite uses an innovative, patented technology known as Radio-Frequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL), which allows it to work at a three-dimensional level. It simultaneously contracts (1) the dermis, (2) the subdermal connective collagen matrix, and (3) the deep fat.
RFAL is unlike other technologies as it works by passing an electrical current between a thin internal cannula placed within the skin and an external electrode placed on the uppermost skin layer.
The electric current converts to heat with the various tissue layers, and at the same time, it destroys fat cells and contracts collagen strands.
Additionally, RFAL is specifically designed to maintain a constant temperature gradient for even and optimal heating over large treatment zones.
Similar to CoolSculpting, CoolAdvantage also uses the power of cold to treat undesirable fatty tissue deposits in the waist, butt, thighs, and flanks.
But unfortunately, even for people who are at or near their optimal weight, fat in these traditional “problem zones” is particularly resistant to reduction with diet and exercise alone.
CoolAdvantage targets undesirable fat as it is based on a powerful technology called cryolipolysis, which targets unwanted fat cells with cold and freezes fat cells until they burst and die. Subsequently, the body reabsorbs these cells due to its natural metabolic processes.
The appearance of excess fat is mitigated without any damage to the surrounding tissue, leaving the patient with a smooth, toned, and sculpted body after only one treatment session.
