Cosmetic surgery is a diverse field with many specialties and offerings. However, as with any surgical procedure, patients must weigh the benefits against downtime, cost, and any pain associated with the procedure. For patients who want to live a more natural lifestyle while still taking advantage of the latest advancements the aesthetic technology has to offer, their options can seem severely limited. That’s where Lipogenex enters the picture. We offer an array of non-invasive treatments to help patients look their best without undergoing complicated surgical procedures.
Some of our solutions include:
Over time, skin naturally loses its elasticity and smooth texture due to several factors, most commonly sun damage, hormone deficiencies, chronic dehydration, and age. As a result, it can develop wrinkles, rough texture, and uneven pigmentation. Facelifts are traditionally used to treat some of these issues, but they both entail surgery and sometimes considerable recovery time.
J-Plasma is a resurfacing technology that energizes helium gas until it ionizes, a process by which helium molecules separate into positively charged ions and negatively charged electrons. The resulting plasma stream is passed over the treatment area to trigger collagen production, which then works to repair the skin. Possible treatments include the removal or reduction of freckles, age spots, lip lines, fine and deep lines and wrinkles (including crow’s feet). J-Plasma can also tighten loose skin to reduce or eliminate sagging, and reduce the appearance of scars and uneven pigmentation.
The effects are very similar to those seen in Brow lifts and facelifts, but without going under the knife. For more severe cases, J-Plasma can be used to complement surgery for better results.
As you age, your face naturally loses fat stores, which is why your cheeks lose volume over time. Dermatological “fillers” do exactly what they sound like: they “fill” recessed areas to create a plumper and more youthful appearance. But it’s not just aging that takes a toll on your face: scars left behind by acne and accidents, lost volume due to weight loss, and facial deformities can all be improved through filler injections.
A well-known problem with most fillers is that their effectiveness is only temporary. To maintain results, they require repeating every few months, if not more often. In contrast, Bellafill provides results that can remain for up to five years after treatment. This is due to the unique formula containing 20% polymethyl methacrylate, or PMMA. As the formula breaks down over time, your body uses it as a base upon which to build its own collagen stores to help maintain your results. What exactly those results are will depend on the severity of the problem being treated, but most patients can expect a softening of lines and wrinkles and a more youthful-looking face after one to three treatments.
Historically, removing excess fat and skin was a very invasive procedure requiring extensive surgery and downtime. Today, body contouring refers to the use of lasers to accomplish the same results, but painlessly and without the need for surgery and lengthy recovery times. Lipogenex uses the proven technology of Accent XL, a radiofrequency therapy that simultaneously melts fat and tones loose skin on the face, thighs, upper arms, chest, and abdomen. It does this by heating the layer of subcutaneous fat deep under the skin. The surface of the skin is cooled at the same time for both the client’s comfort and to aid in skin tightening. This heat treatment melts and shrinks the fat cells and promotes collagen production so that the skin can tighten properly as the fatty area gets smaller.
The procedure usually takes less than an hour, and the result is most visible a few weeks after treatment when the treated fat cells shrink and their contents are eliminated by the lymphatic system.
Along with other procedures like Dysport, the Botox alternative, and laser-assisted spider vein removal, Lipogenex offers a full suite of non-surgical, non-invasive treatment options to address all your cosmetic enhancement needs and help you look your best.
