Procedure Descriptions

Hair Removal

Say goodbye to your razors, tweezers, and wax strips for good with Cynosure Elite MPX Laser Hair Removal. Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses an intense beam of light to remove unwanted hair in nearly any area. The procedure is fit for both women and men, with the most common treatment areas being the chest, back, legs, armpits, upper lip, chin, and bikini line. Unlike temporary hair removal methods, laser hair removal treatments target actively growing follicles for permanent hair reduction.

While the Cynosure Elite MPX treatments are highly effective, more than one session is recommended for optimal results. Typically patients see great results in four to six treatments, though this number will vary based on skin tone and hair color. The results of the lasers vary greatly from person to person. Patients with light brown to black hair see the best hair removal results with this treatment because the laser light is attracted to the pigment in hair follicles. If you would like to evaluate your laser hair removal treatment options or learn more about the procedure, please contact our office to speak with a professional and set up your free consultation.

Spider Vein Removal

If you are bothered by tiny veins on your face and legs, you can be rid of them for good! Cosmetic lasers can eliminate these blood vessels permanently. Spider veins, as opposed to varicose veins, are smaller and closer to the skin surface. They are often red or blue and can look like tree branches or spider webs with short jagged lines.

The laser selectively targets the problem veins with prescribed doses of energy while sparing the surrounding areas. Each session lasts less than 30 minutes. After treatments are completed, the targeted vessels will slowly and naturally disappear. Multiple treatments may be necessary.

Age Spot (Sun Spot) Removal

When exposed to UV rays (from the sun or tanning beds), the skin protects itself by producing melanin (skin pigment). Hyperpigmentation (dark spots created on the surface of the skin) is caused by excess melanin in the skin. Over a wide range of ages, patients struggle with skin discoloration and unevenness that is often caused by sun exposure and/or aging. Laser treatment is the most effective way to get rid of this unwanted pigment.

The treatment leaves a small scab where the spot was located, but this mark disappears in just a few weeks. Typically patients see the best results in one to two treatments, though this number will vary according to each patient’s specific need. It is important to keep in mind that new age spots are bound to return unless you wear a broad spectrum sunscreen every day.

Liquid Facelift

Over the years, facial skin begins to lose elastin and natural collagen growth slows. When facial skin loses volume and elasticity, facial features begin to sag and create wrinkles, creases, and folds. With the liquid facelift treatment provided at Aviva Aesthetics, you can turn back the clock and bring your facial features back to life.

A liquid facelift is a non-surgical alternative to plastic surgery. By using certain products and certain injection techniques, our doctors can reduce the signs of aging in just one to two treatments. There are no incisions and no downtime.

Neurotoxins (Botox & Xeomin)

Lines on your face are often the result of repetitive contraction of the muscles underneath the skin. Made from a purified protein, Botox blocks nerve impulses. For those aged 18 to 65, botulinum toxins may turn frown/worry lines into a much more relaxed, rejuvenated face.

FDA approved neuromodulators have been safely and successfully used by millions of women and men. At Aviva Aesthetics, a licensed and experienced professional will administer your treatments. The results last an average of three to four months.

There is no down time. Any injection discomfort that you experience will resolve quickly. While allergic reactions have been reported, these are not common. Other potential side effects include dry mouth, fatigue, headache, drooping eyelids, and double vision. It is not approved for use during pregnancy or while breastfeeding.

Fillers (Radiesse & Belotero)

Injectables are substances that can be injected beneath the skin in order to reduce the visible signs of aging. Radiesse dermal filler is an FDA-approved filler that is used to correct facial lines and wrinkles. Radiesse dermal filler is injected into the skin through a simple and minimally invasive procedure giving you immediate, visible improvement of folds and wrinkles. Belotero dermal filler is an FDA-approved filler that is specially designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct facial contours. By shaping to the individuality of your skin, it softens lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for smooth and natural results.
