Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are a special medical grade thread that is thinner than hair, made of protein. Research has confirmed that PDO relaxes tendons and muscles, while improving the blood flow to the area stimulating neocollagenesis (the production of new collagen in the skin).
The threads will dissolve over a few months leaving behind new collagen and a visible tightening and lifting effect.
There are two types of threads: smooth and barbed. Smooth increases volume and barbed threads have more a lifting effect.
Facial acupuncture employs a holistic approach to anti-aging & skincare, which treats the face, as well as the body, mind & spirit. When the face is needled, Qi & blood flow increases. That results in nutrients and oxygen being transported more readily to the cells. It also removes waste & fluid build up, increasing circulation on a cellular level. It also creates a micro-trauma & activates the bodies innate wound healing response (similar to micro-needle). This stimulates fibroblasts & can promote collagen & elastin production. Improves muscle tone by re-harmonizing muscle structure to lift and tone the face. Relaxes tight muscles & strengthens weak muscles. The benefits are a tighten and firmer skin, reduced puffiness, and much more.
Since acupuncture is a holistic approach to aging and health, we work on the entire body, not solely the face. Facial acupuncture involves needling the face and body. So not only do you look better but you feel better.
It is recommended to do a series of 6 – 12 treatments, once or twice a weekly for lasting results.
Each treatment is 60 minutes and includes the acupuncture needling, Red LED, and gua sha for a relaxing facial massage and lymph drainage.
We offer many different firming and lifting treatments. It's always been confusing for some to decide where to start. Now, we have packaged the all together in this exclusive treatment. This treatment combines ultrasonic firming, high intensity focused ultrasound, radio frequency, micro-current and LED. Each technology does something a little different than each other, but the end result is to help build collagen and elastin.
Microneedling creates micro-injuries which trigger the growth of fibroblasts cells that stimulate the production of collagen resulting in plumper and smoother looking skin. When an injury occurs, your skin will destroy the old damaged tissue that causes acne scarring and wrinkles. Then it will replace it with freshly produced collagen. This treatment is best for all the skin types and tones, especially for the people who are facing a problem like acne scarring, wrinkling, fine lines and dilated pores.
Our Elite Microneedling with MDerma takes our regular microneedling to the next level. MDerma is the newest microneedling equipment by Derma Pen. The needles sit differently within the pen allowing the needles to penetrate at a deeper level. This is followed by a cooling treatment.
You should expect to be slightly red to red, like a sunburn after the treatment. You will most likely be red and swollen for the next couple days. Each treatment includes a take home Recovery Skin Care Set to use over the next week.
PRP is platelet rich plasma. Our physician will draw one tube of blood from your arm and place that inside a centrifuge. The centrifuge separates the serum, platelets and white blood cells from the red blood cells. The plasma that contains higher concentration of platelets is collected and viola! – PRP.
The client will be numbing while the blood is spinning.
PRP contains many different and potent growth factors along with other proteins that stimulate the healing of soft tissue. Studies have shown that the growth factors in platelets can stimulate your stem cells resulting in the growth of new skin.
Using the Elite MDerma microneedling Pen to create tiny channels along the surface allows full penetration of PRP into the dermis, through the epidermis. Applying PRP topically allows us to get an even distribution of the PRP.
Microcurrent to a low level electrical stimulation regenerate cells and re-educate muscles.
Micro-current whispers” to your cells to increase their regeneration and “talks” to your muscles to re-educate your muscles. Muscles that have become elongated (jowls) will shorten. Muscles that have shortened over time (lip wrinkles) will lengthen and relax. It is proven to increase the ATP of your cells, creating quicker cellular regeneration.
Discounts are available for packages of 6 or 12 treatments.
This helps fine lines and mild scarring. It can also be used to maintain results from the Elite Microneedling with MDerma.
Green light at 520 nm bonds with melanosomes and bacteria, this will help with acne and hyper-pigmentation. Green LED helps scatter the hyperpigmentation on the surface of the skin. The LED treatments on their own are only 15 min. appointments. You’re under the light for 5 min. Please arrive with little to no make-up on. We recommend twice weekly treatment for a month and then monthly maintenance.
Red LED at certain wavelengths is absorbed into the mitochondria of the cell responsible for regeneration. The energy stimulates the fibrocyte, the cell responsible for production of collagen and elastin, to become active. The result is a healthier, firmer skin. This is a quick treatment. You're under the light for 5 min. We request that you wear little to no make-up as service time alloted is 15 min. We recommend twice weekly treatment for a month and then monthly maintenance.
Botox® purified form of botulinum toxin A, meaning there's no botulism risk. They work by blocking the nerves that contract muscles, softening the appearance of wrinkles.
Dysport® has been FDA approved since 2009. It is a injectable neuromodulator, similar to Botox.
Technically, Dysport and Botox differ in the protein structures. More importantly for you,Dysport® kicks in faster. Studies show that Dysport may last longer.
Dysport is s smaller molecule so it measured differently and you will you will need more units.
We offer many types of fillers including, Juvederm®, Restylane®, Veluma®, Belotero® and others. Pricing and product used depends on the area and severity of lines and wrinkles.
Dr. Ammann will consult with you to determine which product is advisable for you.
