Skin Care and Non-Surgical Treatments
Healthy, smooth, glowing skin is one of the most universal aspects of beauty. Not all of us are born with the kind of skin that stands out naturally, but with proper care, most of us can achieve a youthful, healthy skin appearance that radiates beauty. And skin care can prolong the youthful attributes of your appearance to help you look years younger than your calendar age. And when your skin begins to show its age, rejuvenation techniques can help you turn back the clock to restore a more youthful appearance and produce healthier skin.
This page gives a basic rundown on the skin care treatments we offer at the Feagin & Owen Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center, but to know what treatments will work best for you requires an evaluation of your skin and personalized recommendations. To get detailed recommendations, please contact our board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Charles Feagin and Dr. William Owen or our esthetician, Marcie Lucky today for a consultation
Skin Care and Rejuvenation Treatments We Offer
Come in and tell us what problems or concerns you have about the appearance and health of your skin and we will help to improve them. At the Feagin & Owen Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center, our esthetician works closely with our doctors to identify the best treatments that can help your skin look its best. We offer many of the most well-respected lines of prescription skin care products and can recommend in-office or at home treatments to help your skin look its best.
In addition to prescription skin care products, we offer a number of skin rejuvenation treatments, including:
- Acne treatments
- Chemical peels
- Laser Skin Resurfacing
- BOTOX® Cosmetic
- Dermal fillers
Acne treatments can combine many different types of skin care. From facials, prescription creams to laser treatment, we offer many options to precisely target your acne and reduce its long-term effects on your skin, including acne scars.
With modern medical and aesthetic techniques, we can resolve most acne problems. There is no need for teenagers to adults to develop acne scars. So if you have problems with acne, contact us and we will assist you on your acne treatment.
Chemical peels help your skin to look fresher by removing the outer layers of dead and damaged skin. They also stimulate your skin's natural rejuvenation processes while providing your skin with essential nutrients it may not get through other methods. We offer three main types of peels:
- Glycolic Peels are very mild and use Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) to loosen dead skin cells and exfoliate the outer layers of damaged skin. Our esthetician performs these peels, which are great for a quick refreshing of your skin tone and to help maintain your youthful skin. You may experience minor discomfort. When finished, you may return to normal activities immediately.
- Blue Peels use trichloroacetic acid, and the results can be inconsistent. Tricholoracetic acid burns on contact and sometimes results in scarring when used at the concentrations necessary to produce an effective result. As a result, Dr. Feagin and Dr. Owen often recommend safer and more effective treatment alternatives.
- Phenol Peels, also called deep chemical peels, can provide significant improvement to deep facial wrinkles and sun damaged skin by removing several of the skin's outer layers. They can also be used to treat facial blemishes, deep wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, and acne scars. These peels must be used with caution, but can be very effective for appropriate candidates.
During your consultation, we will evaluate your skin condition and concerns and recommend the appropriate skin peel for you.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing, like chemical peels, restarts your skin's natural rejuvenation processes by removing the skin's outer layers of dead and damaged skin cells. We offer both full resurfacing, which produces dramatic results but does involve some downtime, and Fraxel, which works by passing through the outer skin without damaging it, and then being absorbed by the middle portion of your skin. By absorbing the laser energy in the middle of your skin, it stimulates your skin to form new collagen and elastic fibulas without damaging the outer layer of skin. . The results of Fraxel are good, but require several treatment sessions to achieve maximum improvement.
The Fraxel laser is performed in the office under topical anesthesia. You may return to work as soon as the treatment is over. There is also minimal discomfort after the procedure. Make-up may be worn immediately. The Fraxel laser can be used to treat the skin of the face, neck, upper chest and the hands.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable treatment that improves the appearance of some types of wrinkles, creases, and involuntary scowls. It is not a universal treatment, but if your doctors know which areas BOTOX® works well for and what areas it does not help, then it can be a very effective method to help improve the appearance of your face.
Dermal fillers are natural or biocompatible materials that are injected to minimize the appearance of facial folds, wrinkles, and depressed scars. They are a very good treatment for giving a naturally youthful-looking appearance. They can also be used for lip augmentation to give you more luscious, attractive, and youthful-looking lips.
Why Feagin & Owen for Your Skin Rejuvenation Procedure
The recent advances in noninvasive cosmetic treatments have revolutionized the way we look at facial rejuvenation. Treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic have grown tremendously in popularity because they give great results for many common effects of aging. However, these treatments are not miracles, and they do have limitations. These treatments are still just tools and depend on the skill of the surgeon to use them to maximum effectiveness. They also depend on the judgment of the surgeon as to whether they are an effective treatment for your condition.
Dr. Feagin and Dr. Owen are extensively trained and experienced in all types of skin care and surgical treatments of your face. They can explain the benefits and limitations of any of the reputable methods of improving your appearance.
