1. Botox

The holidays are typically a time of the year where you may have noticed more stress showing up on your face. Soften your expression for the holiday season with Botox® from the master injectors at Charlotte Plastic Surgery.

Who is a good candidate for Botox®?

Anyone who wants to soften the wrinkles around the mouth or crow’s feet, and take years off their appearance and appear rested – just like you’ve been on vacation!

What can Botox® do?

Botox weakens muscles in small doses, so it reduces skin wrinkles and makes them disappear!

Skin Health Products to Pair with Botox®:

  1. SkinMedica® TNS Essential Serum
  2. Alastin® Restorative Eye Treatment


2. Fillers

Lip Filler B&a

One of the best options for non-invasive facial rejuvenation at Charlotte Plastic Surgery is dermal fillers. During the holidays, this is a great procedure for getting ideal results on short notice.

Who is a good candidate for Fillers?

Anyone who has lost facial volume due to aging, or those who want to create a prominent chin, firmer jawline or fuller lips.

What can Fillers do?

Fillers are a great option for facial rejuvenation. They can be used for everything from simply filling in fine lines and wrinkles to augmenting and shaping the lips and nose. Dermal fillers are also excellent for restoring subtle lost volume in the face that contributes to an aged appearance.

Skin Health Products to Pair with Filler:

  1. SkinMedica® HA5
  2. Colorscience® Lip Shine SPF 35


3. DiamondGlow™️

DiamondGlow™️ (Dermalinfusion) is a treatment method called Microdermabrasion which is a way of gently removing the dead outer protective layer of the skin. This layer provides a barrier to the sun and anything that comes into contact with the skin, but it also gets in the way of absorption of beneficial products as well as skin turnover to promote skin metabolism.

Patients looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, age spots, and acne concerns with no downtime are good candidates for this procedure. DiamondGlow™️ can help anyone who has acne, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, brown spots, mild wrinkles, skin dullness, and large pores.

What can DiamondGlow™️ do?

The treatment uses a closed-loop vacuum system resembling that of a wand to exfoliate the skin. A skin health expert will recommend the appropriate topical to infuse the skin with and stimulate new cell growth. Each pass gently abrades away dead skin, thoroughly and evenly exfoliating while infusing the treatment solution into the skin. Your skin immediately looks clearer and brighter and definitely feels smoother, and your makeup will go on easily.

Skin Health Products to Pair with DiamondGlowTM:

  1. SkinMedica® HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator
  2. SkinMedica® TNS Advanced Plus Serum


4. Chemical Peels 

A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure. Depending on the issues you’re addressing with the procedure, you’ll choose a chemical peel in one of three depths:

  1. A light chemical peel removes the outer layer of skin (epidermis). It’s used to treat fine wrinkles, acne, uneven skin tone, and dryness.
  2. A medium chemical peel removes skin cells from the epidermis and from portions of the upper part of your middle layer of skin (dermis). It’s used to treat wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin tone.
  3. A deep chemical peel removes skin cells even deeper. Your doctor might recommend one for deeper wrinkles, scars, or precancerous growths.

You may not be a good candidate for Chemical Peel treatments if you have:

  1. A history of abnormal skin scarring
  2. A naturally dark complexion or skin tone
  3. A tendency to have extra pigmentation of your scars
  4. Used certain acne treatments within the last year
  5. Skin conditions or medications that make the skin more sensitive than normal

Skin Health Products to Pair with Chemical Peels:

  1. SkinMedica® TNS Advanced +
  2. Alastin® Regenerating Skin Nectar

Post-procedure products are dependent on the type of peel.
