Aesthetics is a group of minimally invasive procedures designed to enhance the health and appearance of your skin.
Your skin experiences a variety of changes as you age. Your body produces less collagen and elastin, causing your skin to sag. Repetitive facial motions, like smiling and squinting, also cause wrinkles and lines to form. There’s no way to prevent these issues entirely, but aesthetics can significantly reduce their appearance.
Carolinas Health and Wellness use aesthetics to treat various skin-related issues, including:
You might also benefit from aesthetic treatment at Carolinas Health and Wellness if you have thin lips and want to plump them up.
Carolinas Health and Wellness offer several types of aesthetics, including:
PRP therapy uses your body’s growth factors to encourage the production of healthy tissue. During this type of treatment, your provider draws a sample of your blood. Then, they separate your platelets –– microscopic solids in your blood that have healing properties –– and inject them into your scalp or skin.
When the PRP solution enters your body, it increases circulation to the treatment site and triggers the production of new tissue. When combined, these factors can minimize the appearance of scars or encourage the formation of new, healthy hair follicles.
Dermal fillers are a type of injectable designed to restore lost facial volume. They’re especially effective at addressing cosmetic issues like wrinkles, folds, and sagging skin. Once a dermal filler enters your body, it increases the production of collagen and elastin –– proteins responsible for keeping your skin vibrant and youthful.
If you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines, your Carolinas Health and Wellness provider might recommend Botox.
Botox is a neuromodulator that blocks nerve signals from reaching the muscles in your face. When that happens, your muscles relax, minimizing the appearance of crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles.
To determine the type of aesthetics that will most benefit you, your Carolinas Health and Wellness provider asks about your goals and reviews your health history. They might also order lab work and ask you if you have any allergies or take any prescription medication.
After gathering the necessary information, your provider develops a treatment plan that aligns with your needs and budget.
