Liquid lift utilizes dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm, to treat hollow or fallen facial features for a more lifted and younger-looking appearance. Versatile in use, dermal fillers can simultaneously deliver volume and fill in noticeable wrinkles and lines. Liquid lift can involve treating one specific facial feature or several, depending on the patient’s aesthetic needs and goals. In any case, Dr. Ahn and/or his trusted nurse injectors will carefully select a specific dermal product and amount to carefully and artistically create youthful and natural-looking facial contours.
The Fraxel dual laser uses separated, controlled beams of laser energy to penetrate through the overlying skin layers that appear dull and dry. These layers eventually peel away, making way for smoother and younger-looking skin. Unlike older lasers, the Fraxel dual laser can treat the face, neck and any skin surface during a single session. Dr. Ahn and his team can use the Fraxel dual laser to treat wrinkles, fine lines, dry skin, uneven skin texture, discoloration, acne, and other skin concerns. Depending on your skin needs, Dr. Ahn may recommend several sessions to achieve the desired outcome.
Fractora and Morpheus skin tightening use radiofrequency energy to gently heat the skin and underlying tissues. The radiofrequency energy is delivered via microscopic pins that work to promote collagen production, which in turn leads to tighter, younger skin. The treatment can also be used to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, scars, redness and uneven skin pigmentation. Dr. Ahn often performs Fractora and Morpheus in conjunction with surgery to achieve optimal results. Improvement can be seen soon after treatment and continue to improve up to six months.
