While non-surgical treatments cannot treat the same level of laxity as surgical procedures, not every patient requires invasive surgery. Many of their concerns can be just as easily corrected with non-surgical body and face procedures.
The Sadeghi Center for Plastic Surgery offers non-surgical treatments for patients looking for cosmetic improvement without incisions or downtime.
You can learn more about the vast number of non-surgical treatments by contacting us at 504-305-8200 to schedule a consultation.
Non-surgical Body Contouring
CoolSculpting® uses patented cooling technology to freeze away unwanted fat.
Unlike healthy tissue cells, fat cells are highly susceptible to cold temperatures. When these temperatures are applied to areas with unwanted fat, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, or chin, the fat is disrupted and irreparably damaged. Over the following weeks after treatment, the body processes these dead cells from the body naturally. Because fat cells cannot reproduce, the fat removed with CoolSculpting® is gone for good.
Evolve Trim by InMode® uses a combination of radio frequency energy, light vacuum pressure, and deep tissue heating to target and melt unwanted fat cells in the abdomen, flanks, legs, thighs, and buttocks. This hands-free non-surgical treatment only takes about 30 minutes and requires little-to-no downtime.
BodyTite® by InMode® also uses radio frequency energy to coagulate and reduce fatty tissue. Unlike many other non-surgical body contouring techniques, BodyTite® can also tighten mild to moderate skin laxity.
For some patients, BodyTite® is an alternative to plastic surgery procedures and only requires up to two days of downtime.
Morpheus8™ by InMode® uses radio frequency microneedling to melt unwanted fat and tighten skin (by stimulating collagen production). Because this non-surgical treatment reduces excess fat and tightens skin, it offers total body contouring without the need for surgery.
Emsculpt® enhances muscle mass and definition using electromagnetic energy (HIFEM® technology) to stimulate rapid muscle contractions. During one 30-minute treatment session, patients can experience the same amount of muscle contractions that they would get with 20,000 crunches or squats without breaking a sweat. Most patients undergo a series of four Emsculpt® treatments for optimal results.
Much like Emsculpt®, Evolve Tone by InMode® offers non-invasive muscle strengthening. However, unlike the electromagnetic energy used with Emsculpt®, Evolve Tone uses electric muscle stimulation. Evolve Tone is often combined with Evolve Trim and Evolve Tite to achieve total body definition by trimming fat, enhancing muscle, reducing cellulite, and tightening the skin.
Evolve Tite tightens skin on the face and body using radio frequency energy. Evolve Tite offers hands-free skin tightening and is commonly performed alongside Evolve Trim to reduce unwanted fat and Evolve Tone to strengthen muscles.
ThermiSmooth® uses controlled heating to tighten skin and reduce cellulite. With different technologies for the face and body, ThermiSmooth® offers full-body enhancement.
Non-surgical Face Procedures
Evoke by InMode® offers hand-free facial remodeling. This device, which is attached to your head, delivers bipolar radio frequency to heat the tissues in the cheeks, jawline, and neck. Because it is hands-free and does not move during treatment, Evoke maintains a constant temperature.
FaceTite® by InMode® is an alternative to facelift surgery that uses bipolar radio frequency energy to melt fat and tighten the skin in the face. With FaceTite®, you will achieve more defined and youthful facial contours with no incisions, scars, or significant downtime.
Morpheus8™ radio frequency microneedling stimulates collagen production to tighten skin, reduce wrinkles and acne scars, and offer subdermal adipose tissue remodeling. This treatment is appropriate for all skin tones (I-VI) to rejuvenate the face and neck.
Chemical peels are performed to resurface the skin and eliminate surface-level irregularities like dark spots, fine lines, wrinkles, freckles, facial scarring, and other texture concerns. Chemical peels are available in different strengths, from mild to deep; this level determines the depth of treatment and extent of results.
With most chemical peels, the top layer(s) of your skin will flake over the following days to reveal the healthier, brighter skin beneath.
KYBELLA® is an injectable treatment that eliminates submental fullness (the double chin). Men and women develop fat beneath their chin for several reasons, including genetics. Therefore, weight loss is not always a solution for double chins. This injectable treatment breaks down the fat cells beneath the chin before they are processed from the body naturally. Most patients require a series of treatments for optimal results.
Neurotoxins, including BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Jeuveau®, reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles caused by repeated muscle movements (dynamic wrinkles). These treatments work by temporarily blocking chemical signals that instruct muscles to contract. Because of this, the overworked muscles are relaxed, and wrinkles fade.
While BOTOX® Cosmetic and Jeuveau® can reduce wrinkles around the eyes and mouth (including crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead lines, and nasolabial folds), Dysport® works best for frown lines between the eyebrows.
These injectables will not restore facial volume.
Dermal Filler Injectables
Dermal fillers are used to plump facial contours and restore facial volume. This is a non-surgical alternative to facial fat transfer and facial implants and can increase fullness in the lips, cheeks, jawline, nasolabial folds, and tear troughs (beneath the eye).
While dermal fillers can be injected into specific locations (to address either the cheeks or lips), fillers can also be combined into a liquid facelift. A liquid facelift uses a combination of dermal fillers and neuromodulators to address all regions of the face. This allows for naturally and beautifully balanced results.
The Sadeghi Center for Plastic Surgery is proud to offer:
- JUVÉDERM® family of fillers
- Restylane® family of fillers
- RHA Collection (resilient hyaluronic acid)
- Revanesse® Versa™
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a potential alternative to surgical rhinoplasty for patients looking for minor to moderate changes in their nasal contour. By injecting dermal fillers, the nose can be reshaped. These fillers can build up the bridge of the nose or minimize the appearance of nasal bumps or humps.
