Why CO2 Lumenis For Rejuvenation?

Revolutionary CO2 lasers from Lumenis with a unique patented Acupulse™ technology to lessen side effects and downtimes of traditional CO2 laser. These CO2 procedures can offer total solutions in one treatment with minimal downtime for treatment of sun damage, fine and deep lines, and combines superficial and deep treatment of acne scars. This procedure can be used to effectively treat fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration, as well as other effects of aging and sun damage. The laser beam is applied in a fraction pattern to create columns of thermal damage on the skin to stimulate new collagen. Columns are spaced out so that the remaining tissue is spared, resulting in faster healing. The AcuPulse system uses unparalleled high-power-short duration pulse technologies that maximize treatment effectiveness, safety and patient comfort, as well as minimize downtime and risk of complications resulting from treatments. Lumenis’ CO2 laser optimally treats a broad range of conditions from gentle superficial treatments to deep contracted scar revision. Fractionated laser resurfacing has become an important part of rejuvenating the changes that occur with aging and sun exposure. Non-surgical, minimal downtime!

Acupulse™ CO2 by Lumines is the new gold standard laser skin tightening and skin resurfacing system combining multiple levels in one device for improved efficiency. The high energy beams activates important healing cells called Fibroblasts which turn on and begin laying down strands of fresh collagen and elastin. This can also target melanin deposits in the skin which can also even out skin tone.

Revance Theraputics – Exclusively at GlowMD Laser MedSpa!

We are now offering a new family of fillers by Revance called RHA2, RHA3 and RHA4. The trio of fillers have entered doctors’ offices stateside, and while their debut here makes them new to us, they’ve been available in Europe for more than five years. GlowMD Laser MedSpa is one of the very first to offer Revance RHA in Virginia!

RHA® stands for resilient hyaluronic acid. It is an effective and natural way to replace your skin’s natural Hyaluronic acid loss over time, bringing back its volume and softening facial wrinkles and folds in areas such as cheeks, under eyes and corners of the mouth.

This smooth gel substance, primarily made out of hyaluronic acid, has many cosmetic benefits to fit each patient’s needs. RHA2, 3 & 4 can replenish lost volume in the cheeks and lips, smooth, correct, and soften deep folds, wrinkles, and facial lines and shape and contour the face and cheeks.

Resilience is an important quality for fillers placed in dynamic areas of the face, including the cheeks, around the eyes, and around the mouth. The resilience in RHA dynamic fillers not only provides a more natural result as you move your face, the hyaluronic acid also takes longer to metabolize. Because the RHA products move with your face and more closely resemble the hyaluronic acid that naturally exists in your body, it will take longer for this product to break down, producing results that last longer than traditional fillers.

GlowMD Laser MedSpa offers free consultations to give patients the time to discuss concerns and allows our professional staff to focus on your personal goals. We evaluate the main areas of concern and work together to identify where the patient will receive the most benefit and provide a plan. Once an RHA® treatment plan has been determined, the patient has the option of moving forward with the plan provided.

Results are seen immediately after the procedure with better results a week or so later. There is minimal downtime associated with RHA®. Patients are typically very happy with the immediate results that fillers provide. There is some potential for swelling and bruising, but it should last no longer than a week. Cool packs are provided if needed. Treatment sessions take about 30 minutes.

COLLAGEN P.I.N. DIFFERENT FROM LASERS?

PIN microneedling

At GlowMD Laser MedSpa, we all know as we age our ability to regenerate new skin cells and collagen diminishes.

Years of trauma to our skin leaves a lasting mark, contributing to aging factors such as scarring, pigmentation, fine lines, and overall pore size and texture. There are a wide away of effective methods to treat and rejuvenate your skin from laser based treatments, chemical peels and finally micro-needling.

Micro-needling is a method of introducing a controlled wound into the skin triggering a release of natural growth factors, new collagen & elastin.

 This process causes much less damage to the epidermis than dermal rolling and other ablative treatments, which helps to protect the new skin cell growth providing for quicker healing and a much higher success rate for overall and longer lasting results.

(Percutaneous Induction Needling, also referred to as PCIT, Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy… a.k.a. micro-needling, or automated micro-needling)

P.I.N. is a method of introducing a controlled wound into the skin triggering a release of natural growth factors, new collagen & elastin. This process causes much less damage to the epidermis than dermal rolling or lasers and other ablative treatments, which helps to protect the new skin cell growth providing for quicker healing, higher success rates and longer lasting results.

WHAT IS AUTOMATED MICRO-NEEDLING?

Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy or PCIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s appearance. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of softer wrinkles. Automated micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels, which allow topical serums and creams to be absorbed more effectively into the skin. Collagen P.I.N. is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market. Click below and let us help you find a Collagen P.I.N. provider in your area today.

HOW IS COLLAGEN P.I.N. DIFFERENT FROM THE DERMAL NEEDLING ROLLERS OF THE PAST?

Micro-needling rollers are the previous generation of needling devices. One of the many drawbacks of dermal rollers is the fixed needle or penetration depth (i.e. 0.5mm) which is not very conducive when treating an area like the face which requires different depths due to the varying thickness of skin tissue, depending on the area(s) being treated. Therefore, having a fixed needle depth or penetration level is a huge drawback when trying to customize a treatment for consistency. Collagen P.I.N. ™ has an adjustable needle depth that allows your skincare provider to adjust penetration depth throughout the entire treatment. This will allow the medical provider to properly address the specific needs of thinner skin on your lower eyelids, crow’s feet, and forehead. Additionally, where the tissue is thicker in other areas, like the upper lip, cheeks (due to fat pads), neck and décolletage, the necessary adjustments can easily be treated with 1 needle tip instead of 5 or 6 needle rollers. The other dramatic difference is in the type of injury that occurs using the Collagen P.I.N. versus a Dermal Needling Roller.

HOW IS COLLAGEN P.I.N. DIFFERENT FROM LASERS?

When used correctly resurfacing lasers can be a great tool for treating aging skin. However, lasers use focused light to produce heat to destroy certain colors of pigmentation and vaporizes skin. This is great for targeting dark spots but often leads to complications when treating patients with naturally darker skin. Collagen P.I.N. ™ breaks up pigment mechanically and remodels the collagen without heat or the light. When the heat is removed from the process, it makes for a much safer, more comfortable and more consistent treatment. No heat also equals less downtime! Most Collagen P.I.N. ™ patients have a healthy pink glow immediately after the procedure, which lessens dramatically within 24 hours or less. Most patients are back to work the same day and out to dinner the same evening and experience little to no downtime.

HOW IS THE PROCEDURE DONE?

A sterile needle-tip containing 12 to 36(optional) tiny micro-needles is attached to the Collagen P.I.N. ™. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical serum to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the Collagen P.I.N. will be gently glided across the skin in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered. This results in thousands of microscopic channels throughout the entire treatment area.

What Is Brotox and Why Is It Becoming More Popular?

At GlowMD Laser MedSpa, a new wave of men have been turning to Botox – playfully dubbed ‘brotox’ – in a bid to remain youthful.  A testament to the fact that cosmetic procedures like Botox aren’t just for women, Brotox has exploded in popularity over the last decade. As its nickname might suggest, “Brotox” refers to Botox procedures for men. And according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of men seeking Botox has risen by an astounding 355 percent in the last 15 years.

What Is Botox?

Despite its catchy name, Brotox is exactly the same procedure as the Botox injections that many women also utilize to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. During the 15- to 20-minute procedure, a skilled professional will carefully administer injections to the desired areas while you simply relax. Because this treatment is generally quick and easy, it’s often referred to as a “lunchtime procedure,” meaning that it can be scheduled during your lunch break or a free afternoon, as it requires little to no downtime afterward.

Most people will notice their final results within 2 to 7 days following their treatment, and these results typically last anywhere from 3 to 6 months (The Dermatology Review). But because the procedure is relatively convenient, many men and women find that making regular appointments spaced several months apart is easy to fit into their busy schedules.

Top 3 Reasons Why More Men Are Getting Brotox

Each year, more men opt for cosmetic procedures like Botox to help them look and feel their absolute best. While lots of men choose Botox for reasons similar to women, there seem to be three common threads among men who are considering, or who have already had, injectable treatments.

  1. Men aren’t immune to the aging process. Historically, society has emphasized women’s physical appearances, especially as related to the aging process, over men’s. However, with changing societal norms and shifting focuses, women aren’t the only ones who wish to reverse the hands of time and look a little younger and more energized. Along with the skyrocketing popularity of social media, there is a greater emphasis on physical appearance for both men and women, making cosmetic procedures like Botox or “Brotox” highly sought after.
  2. A growing need to remain competitive in today’s job market. In a similar sense, the job market is constantly shifting and becoming more and more competitive. Countless studies have shown that there is a direct link between one’s physical appearance and his or her career success (Forbes Magazine). Many men who want to keep a competitive edge in their career goals decide to take advantage of Botox procedures to maintain a virile, energized look that matches just how vigorous they feel.
  3. Improve self-esteem and quality of life. On a more personal level, like many women, men can benefit from the self-confidence boost that Botox may be able to provide. When you look your best on the outside, you tend to also feel better about yourself on the inside, which can have a positive effect on your overall happiness and quality of life.

Taking the Next Step

If you’re among the thousands of men and women who consider Botox each year, the first step is to find the right professional with whom to work. Keep in mind that although Botox is a relatively simple and quick procedure, you should always work with an experienced, well-trained professional.

At GlowMd Laser MedSpa at The Dermatology Center, our board-certified Dermatologist and NP Ms Nikki West offers the highest-quality Botox injections to help you reach your goals.

The staff at would be happy to sit down with you to discuss your unique needs and goals and design a custom-tailored treatment plan to help you achieve the youthful, energized look you want.
