forma extra tv ad forma

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.

 

 

What is a Carbon Laser Facial?

Exclusively at glowMD Laser MedSpa – Our new Carbon Laser Facial that gives your complexion a clear, smooth and radiant glow.

Carbon Laser Facials are a revolutionary, non-invasive, painless with virtually no-downtime procedure that helps rejuvenate the appearance of aging and damaged skin. It gently removes the top layer of skin, leaving an amazing glow with a vibrant, youthful complexion.

Also known as a China Doll Laser Facial, Hollywood Peel, Black Doll Laser Facial or Charcoal Black Doll Facial, this gentle procedure is safe on all skin types. It is a great way to get a quick skin refresher without the longer downtime associated with other laser procedures. It evens skin tone, reducing appearance of pigment, fine lines, and acne scars.

How do Hollywood stars, models, and media personalities keep their skin glowing and unblemished year after year? This and many of our other laser skin treatments can leave you looking and feeling your best following the procedure. With this treatment, you’ll benefit from a procedure that has given many of our patients the results they want, through a safe procedure.

How it works.
We’ll apply a layer of liquid carbon to your face (or body), allowing it to penetrate deeply into your pores and let it dry. The carbon bonds with any debris that might be present, like dead skin cells, contaminants and oil.

We’ll then pass a laser across the surface of your skin. Because the laser light is super attracted to carbon particles, its energy and heat is absorbed by the carbon paste destroying the particles in your pores.

Light from the laser is attracted to the carbon. The carbon absorbs the light energy. The reaction causes a mini explosion. The explosion pushes the energy, in the form of heat, deep into the layers of the skin where elastin and collagen are activated and cells begin producing anew. Meanwhile, on the surface of the skin, as the explosion occurs the carbon is vaporized along with any dirt, oil or dead skin cells. Sounds kind of scary, with all the explosions and vaporizing, but don’t worry. There’s very little discomfort or pain. The sensation has been described as a mild tingling or very slight pinch.

Who can benefit from this treatment?

For those who want to combat the signs of aging, Carbon Laser Facials can rejuvenate your skin by:

  • Reducing the signs of premature aging
  • Improving skin integrity and radiance
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Increasing skin tone and texture
  • Stimulating collagen growth for firmer, plumper skin
  • Reducing oily skin or exfoliating dry skin
  • Erasing or fading yellow/brown pigmentation
  • Shrinking scars (must be young scars of a small diameter).

Which celebrities use them?

A-listers Kim Kardashian, who is also a fan of the vampire facial, is said to get a carbon laser facial. Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston, both exes of Brad Pitt, are reported to have them done.

No matter by what name you might know it, the principle is the same. CLF (carbon laser facial) is a non-ablative laser skin treatment that uses the conductive qualities of carbon to quickly and painlessly exfoliate, cleanse, clear and tighten pores, brighten and even-out skin tone and activate a deeply rejuvenating skin reaction that produces skin that is smooth, plump and radiant!

Carbon Laser Facials are safe and effective for all types of acne and can:

  • Gently clear your pores to help reduce blackheads and whiteheads
  • Eliminates the need to extract comedones
  • Simultaneously targets acnebacteria and shrinks your sebaceous glands for reduced oil production, congestion and outbreaks
  • Decreases cyst size, papules and nodules

What can I expect?
Your skin will feel immediately smoother and look instantly refreshed. Better still, there’s zero downtime! You can return to your daily activities immediately following your treatment – your skin may appear slightly red but this should disappear within a few hours. We recommend you use SPF 30+ and avoid abrasive exfoliates or other invasive skin treatments for a few days.

How long do results last?
It will depend on the condition of your skin, your skin type and your lifestyle.

You’ll probably notice results after a single treatment. However, for long-term results, we recommend regular treatments – 4-6 treatments are optimal, spaced 2-4 weeks apart.

Please note: If you’ve recently had dermal filler or toxin treatments, we’ll recommend you wait a minimum of 2 weeks before undergoing Carbon Laser Skin Rejuvenation.

Will it hurt?
No! The treatment is gentle, non-invasive and painless. You’ll probably hear a small pulse as we target the carbon particles in your pores with the laser. Our clients describe the feeling as warm or prickly but not painful.

NewBeauty Award

We Did It Again!

We are proud to announce that CoolSculpting® has been awarded the NewBeauty Award for “Best Noninvasive Fat Eliminator”. Thanks to the editors of NewBeauty magazine for choosing CoolSculpting—for the 6th year in a row! It’s an honor to be recognized. Join us in sharing the great news!

Best Noninvasive Fat Eliminator

An easy way to kick stubborn bulges of fat to the curb, noninvasive—and six-time award-winner—CoolSculpting freezes away fat cells for a slimmer silhouette in as little as one month.

“In our fast-paced world, many patients don’t have time to recover from liposuction or they’re afraid of the idea of surgery. When presented with CoolSculpting, many patients say, where do I sign up?”

WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING?

CoolSculpting® is the only FDA-cleared, nonsurgical fat-reduction treatment that uses a process called cryolipolysis to get rid of stubborn fat. The CoolSculpting® treatment safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. The results from the treatment are about a 20%-25% fat reduction in the treated area. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you!

Popular treatment areas include the abdomen, upper arms, love handles (flanks), inner and outer thighs, double-chin, bra fat and underneath the buttocks! CoolSculpting® is also FDA-cleared to affect the appearance of lax tissues with submental area treatments.

WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING? 

The nonsurgical CoolSculpting® treatment is exactly what is sounds like! There is no surgery and little to no downtime after the treatment. Many patients even return to work or head to the gym after a CoolSculpting® treatment. The science and research behind CoolSculpting® —cryolipolysis — was discovered by a group of Harvard scientists who came across the phenomenon that some children who ate popsicles developed dimples in their cheeks. These scientists realized that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat! This proven science on which the CoolSculpting® treatment is based has allowed for over 6 million treatments worldwide and a number of happy patients. For more information on safety, check out our CoolSculpting® blog “Is CoolSculpting® Safe?

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR CoolSculpting®?

A good CoolSculpting® candidate is someone who lives a healthy lifestyle, exercises and eats well, but has one or more areas of pesky fat that just won’t go away. CoolSculpting® is designed to treat the subcutaneous fat on both men and women over the age of 18. It is important for patients to realize that CoolSculpting® is not a weightloss treatment; it is a fat reduction treatment designed to decrease the amount of fat cells in the treated area. Individuals that see the best results from their CoolSculpting® treatment continue to live a healthy and active lifestyle after treatment.

That’s Cool! Call us for your free consultation! 540-371-9098

ViPeel in Fredericksburg, VA

ViPeel for New Skin in 7 Days! Virtually painless, Affordable, Remarkable Results!  Treats all skin types!  GlowMD Laser MedSpa now offering this VI Peel™ to leave your skin smoother, brighter and more youthful.

What is a VI Peel™?

A VI Peel™ is a unique blend of ingredients that produces powerful results that treats sun damage and other signs of aging and melasma to leave the skin smooth and soft. The primary advantages of a VI Peel™ is its ability to do its job without the discomfort some other chemical peels have and corrects the skin at the cellular level rather than the outer layer of skin. VI Peel™ combines TCA, Retin-A, salicylic acid and Vitamin C, making it safe for all skin types. It can also be used on the hands and chest to remove sun spots.

There are three types of VI Peel™ solutions:

  • VI Peel™ Purify

    – This formula treats acne and the side effects that come with it including scarring and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

  • VI Peel™ Precision
    – This is a stronger formula of the VIPeel™ – 25 percent stronger

  • VI Peel™ Precision Plus
    – This treats melasma and pigmentation with a precision booster and extra pads.  ​

Benefits of a VI Peel™

A VI Peel™ is very effective at removing the signs of aging, including sun spots, age spots and fine lines and wrinkles. It is often chosen for a chemical peel because it offers the following benefits:
  • Safe to use on the hands, neck, and chest
  • No discomfort
  • Results are visible in days
  • No skin preparation
  • Very little downtime

Is a VI Peel™ Right for Me?

The VI Peel™ is right for you if you have visible age or sun spots, melasma or other signs of aging and want to smooth your skin beyond using fillers and injectables. Additionally, a VI Peel™ is ideal if you want a peel that results in less downtime and side effects.

VI Peel™ Recovery

Immediately following the VI Peel™, the skin has a brown or reddish tone to it that lasts for the first couple of days. Most patients look slightly tan so they are able to continue working. The peeling begins at about the three-day post peel mark and is done by the end of day four. Within about a week, the process is complete and the skin looks smooth and revitalized. Normal routines continue as there is little to no problems with the appearance; however, we recommend no vigorous exercise or activities for the first few days. Most patients require only one treatment to achieve smoother skin although it is suggested that maintenance peels be performed about every three to four months.

How Much Does a VI Peel™ Cost in Fredericksburg, VA ?

The cost of VI Peel™ varies depending on where the peel is performed and how many treatments are required. During a consultation, we can discuss the cost with you following an
evaluation of your skin. We offer excellent financing through CareCredit® to make more procedures available to more patients.

What Do I Do Next?

If you are interested in finding out if VI Peel™ is an option to achieve younger, smoother skin, we recommend you schedule a consultation. At this appointment, we will evaluate your skin to determine if VI Peel™ or another peel is the right option for you. We will also spend time answering questions and addressing any of your concerns.
