Age can not only affect how you look, but it may affect how you feel about your look. Wrinkles and other such lines become more prominent in our profiles the older we get. However, just because these signs of aging are someday inevitable, it doesn’t mean they have to stick around. At Crisp Regional Aesthetics, we offer BOTOX to help erase any signs of aging that may cause you any discomfort in your appearance.
What Is BOTOX®?
The older people get, the more their skin sags. Simultaneously, the facial muscles we’ve been using our entire lives begin to surface, becoming more noticeably defined in our skin. This combination can lead to the development of smile lines and crow’s feet. BOTOX® can help treat such facial lines. Call us today at Crisp Regional Aesthetics and Weight Loss Center to see if an injectable treatment may be right for you.
What Is The Recovery for BOTOX®?
Following an injectable treatment, no downtime for recovery is necessary; patients can get right back into their routines or activities. Patients may experience mild swelling or bruising, temporary redness or numbness. However, these symptoms can be relieved with topical icing. These conditions can improve anywhere between a few hours to just a few days following treatment, depending on the patient.
Am I A Good Candidate For BOTOX®?
If you don’t smoke, are physically healthy, and have realistic goals in regard for your appearance, then you may be a good candidate for BOTOX®. Call us today and schedule a consultation appointment so that our medical staff can help determine if BOTOX may be the right treatment for your aesthetic goals.
Photorejuvenation or Laser Facial
Photorejuvenation is the improvement of various skin problems using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and or laser. Also called photorejuvenation, this treatment is ideal for damage caused by the sun such as dark spots (hyperpigmentation) and broken capillaries. The degree of success depends on skin type and the type of problems that are being treated. Crisp Regional Aesthetics and Weight Loss Center uses lasers by Quanta, a leader in the IPL and laser arena. Our staff is highly skilled in the use of the vascular and pigmented lesion laser treatment as well as being experts in determining the right candidates for the procedure.
Facial veins are a very irritating and can be embarrassing. They are difficult to cover up and will often leave you feeling uncomfortable and self-conscious. Facial Vein Therapy and laser treatments are quick and simple solutions which put you on the path to finding the clear skin you have been waiting for. They will:

Age spots, or hyperpigmentation, occur as a result of damage from sun exposure. They are usually located in sun exposed areas such as the face, hands, shoulders, arms, and scalp. This problem is treated by a variety of methods including our Quanta laser system available at Crisp Regional Aesthetics and Weight Loss Center.
Chemical peel refers to the process of improving the appearance of the skin on the face, neck, and hands. Our medical office offers a variety of peel as well as deeper strength peels using the Physician-directed, medical-grade brand called PCA. Chemical peels are excellent for smoothing out fine lines and uneven pigmentation as well as improving acne, acne scars, rosacea and a variety of other skin conditions.

We offer traditional facials and skin peels, Botox™, photorejuvenation, and laser facials.
Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal is performed by selectively treating the hair follicle without causing thermal damage to the surrounding tissue. Laser light is absorbed by melanin which is the target in hair. The light is converted to heat and then the heat damages the bulb disabling the hair structure. The heat loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for growing new hair. Since pigment is necessary to treat effectively, we cannot treat white, gray, red, or light-blonde hair.
Hair has 3 growing cycles: Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. Laser hair removal is most effective in the Anagen phase (the active growth phase) because the hair then contains an abundance of melanin and cells are rapidly dividing. It is impossible to treat all the viable hair follicles in one session. To be effective, a series of 4-6 treatments are necessary. To target the active growth cycles, the treatments are spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. During this time, it is important to shave or clip the new hair growth between hair removal treatments. No waxing, plucking or hair removal creams should be used since the hair shaft must be intact for the light energy to be transmitted to the hair bulb.
Almost all areas such as face, back, chest, bikini area, shoulders, legs and arms can be treated effectively, quickly and safely. Call us today at Crisp Regional Aesthetics and Weight Loss Center to schedule your laser hair removal consultation and experience the freedom of no more waxing, tweezing or shaving!
