With new advances in non-surgical technology available for sculpting and rejuvenating tissue, the gap between minimally invasive cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery is finally narrowing. Results that can be achieved are very impressive without the extreme risks, downtime or expenses associated with surgery. Compared to surgery, there are more options available for treatments and techniques which offer Dr. Schweitzer considerable customization.
EMBRACE RF by InMode
Dr. Schweitzer is one of the first physicians to offer radio-frequency non -surgical full rejuvenation with the new InMode Embrace RF technology. This state-of-the-art technology utilizes electricity to produce energy and conduct heat deep into the layers of the skin. Radio-frequency is colorblind and can be used to treat all skin tones. This new standard in aesthetic medicine for new-generation rejuvenation is preferred because of its efficacy, safety, minimal down time and versatility.
Radio-frequency treatments deliver impressive results with energy delivered deep into the dermis and underlying fat, sculpting fat, promoting collagen production and contraction of the skin. “In my office I utilize a variety of radio-frequency treatments to rejuvenate, restore and sculpt tissue. Treatments can be prescribed as stand-alone procedures or in combination for optimum results.” Dr. Schweitzer explains.
FaceTite™ is a new procedure performed under local anesthesia with or without light sedation that delivers results that approach surgical face and neck lifts. It provides dramatic improvement in skin laxity on the face and neck utilizing radio-frequency heat to melt fat and tighten skin. It can be used on other areas of the body such as abdomen, thighs and arms.
AccuTite™ is a revolutionary procedure, similar to FaceTite™, that delivers precision heat into areas that were difficult to treat with other modalities. Perfect for an eyebrow lift, lower and upper eyelid improvement, smooth heaviness around the mouth, jowls, jaw and neck. It can also improve localized areas of the body such as axilla “bra fat”, inner thighs, and knees.
Morpheus8™ is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production in the dermis and can slim underlying fatty areas. This treatment remodels and contours tissue for a sleeker and smoother appearance. It can be used as a stand-alone procedure which typically require three sessions for maximum results or as the perfect addition to further the results of both FaceTite™ and AccuTite™.
TREATMENT AND RECOVERY
Dr. Schweitzer gives our patients local anesthesia with or without light sedation prior to the treatment. Local anesthesia can give you a temporary stinging sensation. There is no pain during the procedure making it very comfortable for our patients.
Most patients will experience 3-5 days of downtime following the procedure. Expect to wear compression dressings for about 48 hours immediately after FaceTite™ and AccuTite™, depending on the areas treated. Swelling should be expected and will generally subside over the course of one to several weeks. You will start to see results in 4-6 weeks and experience gradual improvement over the next several months. The greatest improvement is reached between 6 and 12 months and lasts up to 3 years.
