Coolsculpting Elite of Fredericksburg is a fat reduction system with more advanced applicators designed to complement the body’s natural curves. It harnesses proven CoolSculpting technology to target, freeze and eliminate treated fat cells. CoolSculpting has been an industry-leader, creating the market for non-invasive fat reduction for over 11 years.

The number one aesthetic concern for consumers is unwanted body fat. In the world of aesthetics we have so many choices that many patients do not know what to do or what type of service to pick. Coolsculpting Elite helps in many ways alleviate the fear of surgery, privacy and downtime.

Coolsculpting Elite is a non-surgical procedure. Patients are catching up with emails, napping, watching Netflix while they are being treated. You can also eat a meal before treatment. This is not surgery.

Recovery time is an issue with may patients trying to decide how to fit this in a busy schedule. Faster…..better!

Coolsculpting Elite has little to zero downtime. You may leave the office and go to the gym if you wish, take a walk, ride your bike, whatever you normally do.

Privacy. Many patients do not want anyone to know that they have had any cosmetic work done.

No one will ever know but who you want to know that you have any anything done. Over time, you will just reduce, reduce, reduce. It’s a gradual reduction that takes place over a short period of time. One may think you have just been better with diet and exercise.

How many sessions will I need?

As patients vary with there concerns, the number of sessions will vary to effectively treat problem areas. Typically, most patients love multiple sessions for further fat reduction, but other patients may only require 1. It depends on each patient. During your complimentary consultation, you will meet with a certified provider that will evaluate your concerns and recommend a treatment plan that works best for you. glowMD has been treating patients in Fredericksburg and the surrounding counties for many years, far past other providers in our area.

How long does the procedure take?

The duration of the procedure will depend on what areas we are treating and the number of applicators being used. Generally, the average time is about 35 minutes per area. But because we are the only practice to offer Elite Dual Sculpting, that allows us to treat multiple areas at one time reducing your treatment time. We can them treat two areas in 40 minutes! That can be like a lower abdomen, flanks or arms. Its great because you spend very little time in the treatment chair.

What is treatment like?

When you arrive, we will take you back into a private room for photos. Patients are instructed to wear something comfortable, but we may offer disposable garments depending on the treatment area. After photos are taken, we take you into your private treatment room where you can relax and get ready for your Coolsculpting Elite treatment. We do offer complimentary WIFI, music if you wish – as we go about our business of removing your unwanted fat.

There are no needles, medications, cuts or anesthesia during this procedure. You may feel sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching or tingling that normally subsides over a few minutes of time. When you leave the office, you are feeling fine and can proceed with your normal activities. We would expect little to no downtime. Coolsculpting Elite will continue to kill fat cells up to 90 days after each treatment. Visible signs can be seen at 3 -4 weeks!

formaFORMA is a revolutionary innovation in treating wrinkles and sagging skin without the surgery, pain or downtime.   FORMA is one of the newest, most advanced non-surgical cosmetic procedures available. It is proven to be a highly effective technique for skin tightening and lifting. Using radio frequency, Forma targets deep layers of the dermal layer to improve skins elasticity, and firming the skin resulting in tighter more toned skin.  Forma can also spark collagen regeneration which results in younger looking skin. This collagen remodeling procedure is non-surgical and pain-free; without the need for numbing cream! Using the Forma system, we will make several passes on targeted areas to firm up your skin. After each treatment, there will be some slight redness in the treated area, which will subside within a couple of hours.

FORMA is suitable for all skin types and is a nice option for a non invasive rejuvenation. Patients have reported that they really appreciate the improvements it makes on the jowls and neck areas. The procedure is very relaxing and we do suggest multiple weekly sessions for maximum results. Forma skin tightening treatments are virtually painless. Many people compare Forma skin tightening treatments to a hot stone massage. Because Forma skin tightening treatments are virtually painless, there is no need for topical or oral anesthesia, like there is with other skin tightening services. We see patients of all ages for difference reasons. Younger patients come in for prevention or a more defined look, and older patients coming in for the lift and tighten without needing invasive surgery.

Forma Radio Frequency is quick, convenient and painless, immediately revealing tighter skin,  younger looking skin just after one treatment, with no downtime. You can return to work and resume normal activities. Call us for your free consultation and assessment at 540.371.9098.

 

 

BOTOX – Want To Try It But Afraid?

botox ad

For over 20 years of service in Fredericksburg, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Terri Morris of glowMD Laser MedSpa has been providing our patients with fantastic results from their Botox injections. The Botox injection process is easy, quick, and relatively painless, and it offers long-lasting results.

If the lines in your face aren’t quite matching up with your age or your attitude, you might be considering a cosmetic treatment to smooth them out. The “crow’s feet” that develop around the eyes and “frown lines” between the eyebrows can make you appear older or more stressed out than you actually are. These inconvenient lines are no match for Botox, a popular cosmetic treatment to reduce lines and wrinkles.

How Botox Works

Botox is used as a cosmetic skin treatment aimed at reducing wrinkles and fine lines on the face. The Botox solution is administered by our board certified physician Dr Terri Morris using a tiny needle containing purified botulinum toxin. This naturally-occurring protein works by halting muscle movement under the targeted areas of the face. Wrinkles happen because the facial muscles are constantly in motion when chewing, talking, even reading or blinking. When those movements are restricted, however, the wrinkles diminish over a few days time. The effects of Botox on the muscles usually last between three and five months, but results vary with each patient.

Great Results

Botox is well-established as an aesthetic procedure, making it a safe, affordable, and minimally invasive procedure. While surgery can be expensive with a long-term recovery, Botox is an excellent way to achieve similar results without the cost or downtime. Typical results are subtle and the final result leaves patients looking younger and refreshed instead of constricted or “pulled.” Recently, a clinical study found that the vast majority of people who chose Botox were very pleased with their results; they all reported that their appearance had improved.

It only takes around 15 minutes to perform your Botox treatment. The injections themselves produce minimal discomfort, and there is no recovery period after the injection process. It will take about five to seven days to see your full results, and those results will last for around three to five months.

Call glowMd Laser MedSpa to schedule an appointment for your Botox injections today. Dr. Morris and our expertly trained staff can provide you with the outstanding aesthetic care and beautiful, natural results that you are looking for. 540-371-9098.

 

FRACTORA ~ SMOOTH OUT THE WRINKLES

             FRACTORA – RF (Radio Frequency) NON SURGICAL FACE AND NECK LIFT

fractora facefractora logo

At glowMD Laser MedSpa at The Dermatology Center, Dr Terri Morris is now offering Fractora Radio Frequency face and neck treatments. Non surgical skin tightening and rejuvenation has reached the next level! Individuals who are looking for a non-invasive and natural looking approach to skin tone, texture irregularities and lifting can benefit from Fractora™ Fractional. Fractora™ Fractional can be used in areas that demonstrate fine or deep wrinkles, scars or discolored red and brown skin tone. The most common areas of treatment are the face and neck.

Our Neck/Jowl Tightening Treatment, aka the “Non Surgical Face and Neck Lift” will leave your neck and jawline tighter, more chiseled, and youthful. Skip the scalpel, love the RF (Radio Frequency) treatment!

During your consultation, we evaluate your face as a whole to create a customized experience unique to your anatomical needs and personal cosmetic goals. All of our treatments are tailored around acceptable expectations and meaningful improvements without complications. We sometimes combine multiple therapies to obtain optimal results.

Ideal Candidates:

Age 30+ with concerns of lower face jowling, sagging neck skin or increased skin laxity.

How does it work:

The Fractora is the most advanced fractional radio frequency treatment that provides anti-aging improvements on skin tone, texture and firmness for a more radiant look through ablation and skin resurfacing. The Fractora delivers Radio frequency energy to the skin through an array of pins producing localized thermal energy. The gentle heat generated by the Fractora pins in the sub-dermal tissue promotes collagen growth for skin rejuvenation and an improved skin texture. In deeper tissues, the Fractora tightens the face and neck muscles which causes the tightening of the jowls and neck muscles.

fractora process exampleTreatment Details:

Each treatment lasts approximately 1 hour. After 1 treatment, you will see improvements but for permanent results, we recommend 2-3 sessions, spaced 3-4 months apart. There are 2-3 days of downtime after each session.

Benefits:

  • Fractora improves skin elasticity and firmness, especially around the jowls and neck area.
  • Fractora delivers improvements in fine lines, deep lines, texture, pigment irregularities, blood vessels and redness.
  • Fractora offers improvements for aging skin that would normally require two, three or even four different technologies.
  • Ablation of the skin promotes skin resurfacing while untreated skin between the pins promotes faster healing of the treatment tissue.
  • Versatility of parameters allows the user to vary the depth of ablation, coagulation and heating.

The treatment is well tolerated with a topical numbing agent. Social activity can be resumed after a couple of days. We encourage all patients to start our medical grade skin care line prior to and after treatment for better results if you are not using medical grade skincare. The Fractora treatment can be considered an effective modality of treatment for moderate wrinkling and softening acne scars with minimal downtime and advantageous results.

Fractora is performed by Dr Terri Morris, our Board Certified Dermatologist at The Dermatology Center – glowMD Laser MedSpa! Call our office at 540-371-9098 to schedule your Complimentary Consultation!
