Popular Treatments In Early Spring


This is the time of year that you want to fall in love with yourself again. It’s the best time to finally get started on those beauty treatments you’ve had on your wish list for way too long. For many reasons, this is the best time of year to think about cosmetic treatments that can help you look your best all year round.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are the perfect choice if you’re looking for a non-surgical way to restore or improve your youthful look. These fillers can be injected to restore lost facial volume under the eyes, in the temples, and cheeks and offer some amazing benefits:

  • Immediately Visible Results
  • No Recovery or Downtime
  • Boost in Self-Confidence
  • Long-Lasting Results
  • Minimal Risk

You could even consider a non-surgical liquid facelift to rejuvenate the overall appearance of your face, providing a boost that everyone will notice. The best part is that the results are transformative but natural – no one will suspect you’ve had “work” done.

Injectables

The passage of time can leave your face with an aged and tired appearance. However, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, made from hyaluronic acid, is an excellent treatment to fill in lines and wrinkles, provide additional volume to your face, and rejuvenate your look. It is a gel that gently lifts the skin on your face and restores lost volume, resulting in a smoother, more natural and youthful look.

Chemical Peels

Many skin conditions like hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and dull aging skin may be treated with a Chemical Peel. The process loosens and removes dead skin cells and allows healthier skin to grow back and be visible on the surface. Chemical peels can be performed alone or in combination with other cosmetic procedures and applied at different depths, from light to deep. Light peels are perfect for exfoliating and unclogging pores and for increasing new skin production. Deeper peels take longer to recover from, but they can decrease discoloration and give you a smoother skin texture. Either way, you can expect a restored glow.

At Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg, we offer an Obagi Radiance Peel and various Vi Peels, with each treatment being customized to your unique requirements.

Fraxel Laser

Recognized as one of the most popular skin resurfacing tools, Fraxel Laser can penetrate the thickest layer of the skin known as the dermis. It works without burning or damaging the skin. This medical laser can selectively dissolve aged and damaged cells affected by hyperpigmentation, sun damage, wrinkles, or acne scarring by applying gentle heat.

Spar Treatment

As a special treat, you could visit our Medical Spa in Northern Virginia, which offers various services provided by Priya Patel, our master aesthetician. Here is a sample of the treatments she has on offer:

  • Facials
  • Chemical Peels
  • Body Waxing

Get Gorgeous Skin this Spring

Give your skin a springtime tune up. If you’ve got moderate to severe sun damage, come see us and ask about the Obagi Nu-Derm System. Clinically proven to be the best prescription based skin care system available for the treatment of sun damaged, pigmented, or aging skin, this system may be the solution you’ve been seeking for your skin. If you’re hiding your skin’s problems under a thick coat of makeup, come see us. Spring is a time for rejuvenation.

How Does It Work?

Most traditional skin care products treat the surface of the skin. Many do this job very well, but for problems that aren’t surface problems, these products can be ineffective. The Obagi Skin Health Restoration System works at the cellular level. It can correct surface discoloration and blemishes while stimulating cell renewal. This results in brighter, softer, healthier skin, and often a noticeable change in the appearance of age spots, discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles, etc.

This program isn’t one you do on your own. It works best when performed under the guidance of our specially trained physicians. We typically recommend using the skin conditioning program for 3 skin cycles (about 18 weeks) and then consider following up with an Obagi Blue Peel done by one of our physicians.

Other Spring Skin Care Tips

The Obagi Nu-Derm System is one of the best options available for total skin renewal and is highly recommended for those with significant sun damage. If your skin isn’t in need of a comprehensive renewal, try some of these other spring skin care tips:

  • Use Sunscreen– The Nu-Derm System is specifically designed for those with significant sun damage. If you don’t yet have moderate to severe sun damage, take the steps to prevent it. Wear a good quality sunscreen every single day. Use SPF 15 or higher for daily use and at least SPF 30 on days when you’ll have extended sun exposure. Reapply often. Sunscreen use is one of the best ways to keep your skin looking its best.
  • Try a Peel– Does your skin need a good “spring cleaning”? Come try one of our chemical peels. They can treat a variety of skin conditions including hyperpigmentation, dull skin, aging skin, and wrinkles. Peels loosen and remove the dead, outer layers of skin and allow fresh, healthy skin to shine through. We offer a variety of peels (from superficial to deep). Many of our peels require no downtime after treatment.

This spring make your skin the best it’s ever been; call us at 540-371-7730 to schedule your appointment.
