A Simple Treatment to Combat that Double Chin!

double chinShrinking that double chin doesn’t always mean surgery. A simple in-office procedure using radiofrequency (called Agnes RF) can sculpt the face, and deliver firmer, tighter, more youthful-looking skin. AGNES RF stimulates the production of collagen and elastin providing long-lasting and unmatched results and a youthful appearance.  

AGNES RF allows you to go below the surface of the skin to either tighten things or reduce fat pockets under the eyes, on the jowls, or under the chin.  
 
This procedure also contours, and re-shape should you desire a more defined chin or jawline area. If you have stubborn fat tissue in the chin, jowls, and underneath the eyes but don’t want surgery, AGNES RF may be an effective treatment option for you.   (more…)

Clear Away Sun-Damaged Skin with a CO2 Laser

Damaged Skin

If you’re noticing signs of sun damage on the skin, you’re not alone. Sun-damaged skin is a common complaint among patients, as the sun’s harsh UV rays are capable of causing discoloration, sun spots, and even premature wrinkles. While it can be frustrating to see sun damage every time you look in the mirror, a non-surgical solution is available to help you achieve clear, rejuvenated skin: CO2 laser resurfacing

What is CO2 Laser Resurfacing?

As an ablative treatment, the CO2 laser utilizes light energy to remove the outermost layer of the skin and heat the layer beneath, called the dermis, to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. At Florida Face & Body, we use fractional laser technology, meaning that the laser only targets a fraction of the skin at a time. This allows for excellent precision during CO2 laser treatment, ensuring that the healthy skin surrounding the damaged skin is left alone.  (more…)

Say Bye-Bye to Dark Under-Eye Circles

Dark Under-Eye CirclesAre you struggling with dark under-eye circles? This prevalent cosmetic concern often impacts people in their later years, which contributes to a tired, aging appearance. At Florida Face and Body, we offer multiple treatments to eliminate under-eye circles for a rejuvenated look. 

Understanding Under-Eye Circles

Many people assume that puffy, dark under-eye circles are caused by fluid. This, however, is a misconception. The puffy appearance is caused by fat. Over time, as the skin ages, it loses strength, volume, and structure. This causes it, as well as the muscle and fat beneath the skin, to thin out. This makes orbital fat visible from the surface of the skin, creating the appearance of under-eye circles.  (more…)

Treating Acne with IPL

Treating AcneAcne is an extremely common skin condition, impacting as many as 50 million people in the United States every year. While acne is the most prevalent among teenagers, it can also remain in your 20s, 30s, and even 40s. So, if over-the-counter acne treatments just aren’t cutting it for your complexion, you may want to consider professional treatment. 

At Florida Face and Body, we offer IPL therapy for acne. This potent treatment is an ideal choice for acne and damaged skin. Non-invasive and precise, IPL therapy can improve the appearance of your skin by eliminating acne. 

What is IPL Therapy?

IIPL stands for intense pulsed light. During IPL therapy, a range of pulsed light wavelengths are administered to the skin with a high-precision device. This method can be used to address many skin concerns, including scarring and hyperpigmentation. For acne, however, it works by eradicating the bacteria and excess sebum that can lead to acne. The pigment cells in the skin absorb IPL energy, which converts into heat. This heat then kills acne-causing bacteria in the pores. (more…)

What Age Should I Start Getting Preventative BOTOX® ?

Preventative BOTOX floridaBOTOX® is a neurotoxin that has long been used to rejuvenate the face. This time-tested injectable treatment reduces facial wrinkles and folds by inhibiting facial muscle activity.

Skin with Dermaplaning floridaThe sun’s UV rays can damage the skin, leading to sunspots, discoloration, dryness, and even premature wrinkles. If sun-damaged skin is holding you back from bright, healthy skin, dermaplaning can help address the damage and rejuvenate your appearance. 

What is Dermaplaning?

Can truSculpt iD Tighten Loose Skin?

As an incredible FDA-approved technology, truSculpt iD is the successor of truSculpt 3D. Meant to target stubborn areas that are resistant to fat loss through exercise, truSculpt iD uses focused and localized 15-minute treatments that kill fat cells and tighten loose skin.

How Does truSculpt iD Work?

truSculpt iD delivers deep radiofrequency to a specific part of the body to cause cell death, reducing the number of fat cells in the area. Over the following 12 to 16 weeks, the damaged fat cells will be naturally removed from the body, resulting in a more sleek and toned appearance.

How Does truSculpt iD Tighten Skin?

Most fat cell reduction therapies use cooling technology to freeze and destroy fat cells. However, truSculpt iD uses heat, which allows this technology to offer the additional benefit of skin tightening.

During treatment, patients will feel a warm sensation. Most patients find this to be relaxing. As heat builds up in the skin, that heat provides immediate plumping that fills in fine lines and tightens the skin for a more contoured look.

How Can truSculpt Flex Tone and Sculpt Muscles?

As the first technology of its kind, truSculpt Flex is an FDA-approved treatment that focuses on muscle enhancement through a direct stimulation technique. 

While the stimulation contracts muscle similarly to how a workout can, truSculpt flex gives people an edge by targeting hard-to-reach muscles in the buttocks, legs, and abs (like those ever-elusive lower abs). The overall goals of the treatment are to tone, sculpt, and define.

How Does truSculpt Flex Work?

truSculpt Flex works in three stages. Each stage treats the muscle differently.

Stage one is the “Preparation” stage. At this point, the machine is stretching the muscle, preparing it to take on a new, more toned shape.

Stage two is the “Toning” stage. truSculpt Flex will use electric muscle stimulation to twist and define the body’s muscles to reach desired shapeliness.

The final stage is the “Sculpting” stage. This stage consists of muscle contractions, which essentially provide a highly targeted workout. 

Unlike its predecessors, truSculpt flex allows for nearly 100% energy delivery, making its treatments much more efficient and far more customizable than ever before.
