As elasticity in the face is depleted, you may notice things like sagging skin, less cheekbone definition, and wrinkling. Below are some of our most popular treatments for addressing these concerns:
“I have used multiple rounds of fillers to get my desired results. First, I completed a couple rounds of Sculptra Aesthetic to help thicken some areas of my skin and improve my body’s natural collagen production in these volume depleted areas. These treatments are typically spaced out over a couple months to achieve maximum results. Generally, one vial (one treatment) is recommended for each decade of life. Next, my qualified injector started using additional fillers to add volume and shape the natural curves in my face”

Target loose skin, stubborn fat, & cellulite
Body Contouring treatments are great for those looking to target stubborn areas of concern which diet and exercise have been unsuccessful in targeting, as patient Aaron B. explains:
“For a long time, I tried different approaches to get rid of the stubborn areas around my waistline with no success. Dieting & gym routines just were not working. So, I met with a Medical Aesthetician for a consultation on CoolSculpting to see if this was the right option for my concerns. At this time, she informed me that the best time to receive body contouring treatments would be when I was closer to my goal weight. So, she encouraged me to focus on weight loss first — she explained that when I lose weight, she can freeze more of my fat to be eliminated when the cells are at a smaller size!
Save money and more reduction? I was sold! When I finally got closer to my goal weight, I went in for my first treatment and got great results! I This encouraged me to continue with reaching my goal weight and beyond, and the result were even better. I am so appreciative that RM was honest and professional and created the perfect plan that would help me achieve my goals.”
