NON-INVASIVE COSMETIC PROCEDURES

Earlobe Repair

Regardless of the size of tear or hole caused by (but not limited to) wearing gauges and over stretching the skin, we can help you. Dr Reyes is an expert of complex intricate procedures and has successfully completed many, in turn giving her clients back their normal earlobes. This procedure is done here at The Med Spot with local anesthesia and using stitches that will be removed after the ear/ears have fully healed. Because the ear heals very quickly, scars are minimal and they may also be pierced again if regular size earrings wish to be worn.

What is a PDO absorbable suture?

It’s a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. PDO sutures are used to perform cardiothoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery). It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body.
Your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months & won’t leave you with any scar tissue.

How does it work?

  • In medical terms “Selective Inflammatory Response”, it is the principle behind a lot of aesthetic procedures (such as Fractional Laser, Chemical Peels & MicroNeedling). Our skin is very good at repairing itself, and by inserting NOVATHREADS we make it ‘heal’ itself by creating new collagen, naturally!

YOUR SKIN GENTLY REACTS TO THE INSERTED THREADS

  • Yes, PDO is fully absorbable, but that doesn’t mean your skin won’t react to it. During the 4 to 6 monthsneeded to fully absorb the PDO suture, your skin is also repairing itself around it.
  • It’s “controlled healing” happening underneath the skin!

Novathreads are used in Anti-Aging to tighten the skin, restore the V-Shape of the Face & can even provide a lift.

RESTORING THE V-SHAPE

A beautiful and healthy face has a “V-shape”. With the ageing of tissues and the action of gravity, this “V-shape” diminishes or inverts. The idea behind the NovaMesh and the NovaLyft technique is to either create a scaffolding in order to support the tissues and keep them in the “V-shape” or where necessary to delicately lift the tissues and reposition the skin to recreate the “V-shape” where it’s been lost.

NECK & JAW

Although NOVATHREADS can be inserted almost anywhere, one area where they are especially effective is the neck and jawline. The lower third of the face is challenging to treat effectively with botulinum toxin or injectable fillers, which are most effective in the upper and middle third of the face, respectively.

Treatment for Hyperhidrosis -Underarm Sweating

Precision Tx™ can also be used for underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis) by treating the source directly. As the glands are just below the skin the laser will safely ablate them for long lasting results with little downtime. This simple procedure has been life changing for many suffering from the issues connected with excessive sweating.

Botox® for Hyperhidrosis

Onabotulinumtoxin A (Botox) is a natural, purified protein with the ability to temporarily block the secretion of the chemical that is responsible for “turning on” the body’s sweat glands. By blocking, or interrupting, this chemical messenger, botulinum toxin “turns off” sweating at the area where it has been injected. Botox injections are very shallow, meaning that the medicine is injected just below the surface of the skin, where it remains.

Research demonstrates that treating excessive sweating of the armpits, hands, feet, head and face (craniofacial), and other relatively small body areas (like under the breasts) with onabotulinumtoxin A is safe and effective. When used to treat underarm excessive sweating, Botox has been shown to result in an 82-87% decrease in sweating. Here at The Med Spot Dr Reyes will first assess the area of concern by performing a test to see exactly where the spots of excessive sweating occurs. That in turn allows her to accurately inject the precise amount of Botox needed.

The procedure is quick and does not require downtime. Results start to be noticeable approximately 2 to 4 days after treatment with the full effects usually noted within 2 weeks. Dryness typically lasts 4 to 12 months but some studies have found it can last as long as 14 months. Additional statistics from published research studies have shown that repeated treatment with Botox is safe and effective for hyperhidrosis and consistently results in meaningful, long-lasting improvements in an excessive sweating patient’s symptoms, daily functioning, and quality of life.

GentleMax Pro® Removes Spider Veins, Leg Veins and More

With our GentleMax Pro® system, here at The Med Spot we can remove vascular conditions and pigmented areas such as spider veins and sun spots, quickly and easily. If you are suffering from unsightly leg veins and want to get rid of them we can help.

Remove Spider Veins, Leg Veins and More

The GentleMax Pro® system uses laser technology, directing powerful yet gentle light-based energy into the skin. The laser targets the treatment area, causing the blood inside it to coagulate. Over time, the vein collapses and eventually disappears.

Because the laser energy is directed toward the vein, the surrounding tissue remains unharmed. Patients report that laser pulses deliver a sensation similar to the snapping of a rubber band against the skin. Discomfort is further minimized by GentleMax Pro’s® patented DCD™ cooling device, which releases cooling bursts of cryogen with each laser pulse.

Your Laser Vein Treatment Procedure

You will need a few treatment sessions to see results. Expect anywhere from two to six treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. Following your treatment regimen, the veins will gradually change color from blue to light red, and they will eventually vanish over the course of two to six weeks after your last session.
