Non-Surgical

Refine Your Look

Non-Surgical & Injectables


Wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of facial aging often make us look and feel older than we really are. When someone wants to rejuvenate their appearance, they may consider undergoing a cosmetic procedure. However, more people are looking into non-surgical options to avoid the long recovery and discomfort associated with surgery. Dr. Chadwell offers a variety of non-surgical treatment options that are less invasive yet provide a beautifully refreshed appearance.

Skin Rejuvenation

Fractora™

Fractora™ is a fractional skin resurfacing treatment that utilizes radiofrequency energy to achieve a more radiant and youthful appearance of the skin. The energy is delivered to the skin using a matrix of micro pins, similar to those used in micro-needling techniques. Radiofrequency is delivered to the deep layers of the skin to help revitalize collagen.

Fractora™ treats:

  • Wrinkles
  • Reduces the appearance of acne scars
  • Improves discoloration
  • Provides an overall healthier complexion

Fractora™ is usually used to treat the face but in some cases can be used on the body. Virtually all skin types are candidates for Fractora™, even darker skin tones can undergo this type of treatment.  Visible results will typically be seen after two weeks and improvement will continue for up to 3-4 months after the procedure. In some situations multiple treatment sessions will be performed 3-4 weeks apart to achieve maximum results; however, in other cases, only one treatment will be needed.

After the treatment, there is minimal downtime and makeup can be worn in just a few days after the treatment. Some swelling and redness will occur after the procedure but is usually gone in less than a week. Fractora™ can be combined with other energy-based treatments to achieve an even more comprehensive result.

Lumecca™

Lumecca™ it is the most powerful intense pulse light (IPL) device. It utilizes photothermolysis to treat pigmented and vascular lesions, achieving significant improvement in the complexion and clarity of the skin. The procedure improves the appearance of age spots, sun damage, vascular lesions, rosacea, and freckles.

Lumecca™ Treats:

  • Age Spots
  • Sun Damage
  • Vascular Lesions
  • Rosacea
  • Freckles

The most commonly treated areas are the face, neck, décolleté, and hands. However, Lumecca™ can be used on most areas of the body. Slight redness is noted after the procedure, and over the next 24-48 hours darkening of the pigmented spots will occur.

Within a week this pigmentation usually flakes off revealing a renewed complexion. Results will continue to improve for 1-2 weeks.

The appearance of the skin will be improved after the first session, but in some cases, multiple sessions will be required to achieve maximum results. Treatment regimens will depend on the severity of the existing skin damage, skin type, type of treatment (vascular vs. sun damage), and energy settings. With older IPL technology, 5-6 treatments were required to achieve the results of 1-2 Lumecca™ treatments. This demonstrates how efficient Lumecca™ is. Lumecca™ can be combined with other energy-based treatments to achieve an even more comprehensive result.

Treatment for Expression Lines

Botox® & Dysport®

BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are injectables that work by targeting the contracting muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles. Made from botulinum toxin type A, BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are injected into the target area(s) to stop the movement and relax the muscles, which allows the skin to smooth out.

Dr. Chadwell will administer a few tiny injections, and within a few days, patients will see a noticeable improvement in frown lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® do not require any downtime; patients can return to work immediately following treatment. Results are temporary but generally last three to six months.

BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® treat:

  • Frown lines between the brows
  • Crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Lip lines
  • Bunny scrunch lines on the top and sides of the nasal bridge
  • Neck bands

Dysport® can be used to temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines without changing the look of your whole face. It works similar to BOTOX® by relaxing muscles, allowing wrinkles to soften and fade. Results begin to appear within a few days after treatment and can last up to 3-6 months.

Fillers

Restylane®

Restylane® is a dermal filler used to restore volume and fullness to the skin to lessen the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is made up of a transparent gel formation of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance, making it safe and effective. Dr. Chadwell will administer a few surface injections along the areas with folds and wrinkles. Patients can expect to undergo treatment in less than 30 minutes.

Restylane® does not require any downtime. Patients can go back to work and their daily routines following treatment. They will notice immediate results as the product fills in facial lines and restores their youthful contours for up to one year.

Lip Reshaping

Restylane® Silk

Lips that have lost volume can be corrected using Restylane® Silk, a clear gel composed of hyaluronic acid. Restylane® Silk is designed to provide a subtle lip enhancement as well as to smooth wrinkles and lines around the mouth. Often, aging causes changes to the mouth, such as loss of lip shape, thinning of the lips, and the development of vertical lines above the upper lip.

Restylane® Silk is a quick and effective treatment for lip enhancement. Most patients can enjoy their beautifully rejuvenated lips for six to nine months. Restylane® Silk contains a shorter hyaluronic acid chain than those used in other products, allowing it to penetrate those stubborn, superficial lines around the lips and mouth. Therefore, patients can expect to achieve smoother, natural-looking results in and around their lips.

Restylane® Silk treats:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth
  • Volume loss in the lips
  • Naturally thin lips
  • Lipstick lines around the lips

Treatment of a Double Chin

Kybella®

Excess fat underneath the chin can be unflattering and stubborn, even with the most vigorous of diet and exercise routines. Also known as a “double chin,” submental fat often does not go away with a healthy lifestyle. KYBELLA® is a treatment that not only targets submental fat, but it also destroys it permanently. By addressing the fat in the area beneath the chin, KYBELLA® can help people achieve an overall improvement in the appearance of their chin and neck.

Benefits of KYBELLA®

  • Destroys fat cells
  • Minimally invasive
  • Safe and effective
  • Minimal downtime

Candidates

Someone who has moderate to severe fat beneath the chin and would like to improve it may be a good candidate for KYBELLA®. During your KYBELLA® consultation, you will need to discuss any previous medical procedures or health issues with Dr. Chadwell.

Someone may not be a good candidate if they:

  • Have had cosmetic treatments on the face, neck, or chin
  • Have had or currently have medical conditions in or near the neck area
  • Have had or currently have trouble swallowing
  • Have bleeding problems
  • Have had or plan on having surgery on their face
  • Are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding or plan on breastfeeding

Procedure

KYBELLA®’s active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps to break down and absorb dietary fat. KYBELLA® is FDA approved as safe and effective for addressing submental fat. Once injected into the area beneath the chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of the fat. The body then reabsorbs the by-products.

Dr. Chadwell will inject one vial of the KYBELLA® solution at a time beneath the chin. By limiting the amount of the solution, he can reduce potential swelling and bruising. KYBELLA® can take several treatment sessions to achieve maximal results. Each KYBELLA® treatment should be spaced at least one month apart. The number of KYBELLA® treatments needed will depend on the patient and how they respond to the treatment. The average patient will need two to four KYBELLA® treatments to see visible results.

KYBELLA® vs. Surgery

Many people with submental fat can get rid of this fat permanently with KYBELLA®; however, the treatment is not a replacement for a surgical procedure. Patients who have excess sagging skin in the neck and submental area may be better suited for a lifting procedure. Dr. Chadwell will help his patients determine whether they will best achieve their desired results with KYBELLA® or with surgery. During a lifting procedure, he can remove sagging skin, excess fat, and muscle banding. Dr. Chadwell performs different techniques to customize each patient’s surgery to their individual anatomy and goals.

Recovery and Results

Typically, KYBELLA® treatments will only take a few minutes. Many patients can be in and out of the office in less time than the average person’s lunch break. Patients will experience some swelling after the procedure and may have some mild discomfort.

Some possible side effects may include:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Redness
  • Hardness in the treatment area
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Facial weakness

Side effects are generally mild and resolve quickly. Patients should contact the office if they experience trouble swallowing or facial muscle weakness.

Overall, KYBELLA® can help patients to achieve a significant reduction in fat beneath the chin. They will enjoy their slimmer, more flattering chin and neck contours that improve the entire facial profile.
