Belotero Balance
BELOTERO BALANCE is a hyaluronic acid injectable filler designed to integrate into facial skin tissue. The unique manufacturing process for BELOTERO BALANCE yields a soft and cohesive gel that, once injected, instantly fills the skin to help smooth moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles. We find it most ideal for treating delicate areas such as etched-in smile lines, most superficial thin facial lines and is amazing at making the vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above and around the lips) disappear!

This is a simple and safe procedure that takes only five minutes and requires no recovery time. Using a micro-sized needle, Botox Cosmetic is injected into certain muscles in the face to relax them and lessen the appearance of wrinkles that result from our daily expressions such as crow's feet, frown lines and laugh lines. This is an effective means of reversing the visible signs of aging. The results can be seen within four days and last 3-6 months, depending on the individual.

Botox Cosmetic blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. BOTOX™ Cosmetic relaxes the muscles so they do not contract. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected.

Chemical Peels and Masks
We are licensed and certified to perform many facial treatments. We offer you many options to treat sun damaged and hyper-pigmented skin on the entire body; including the hands, face, chest, neck and back. There are also treatments for acne, rosacia, and dry or oily skin.

CPW Vein & Aesthetic Center's Chemical Peels are very different from the standard. In only 3-6 painless treatments, you can repair damage already done almost anywhere on your body.

Our solutions are blends formulated with many ingredients including lactic acid, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), plumping phytohormones and kojic and azelaic acids to produce dramatic results without the discomfort and downtime associated with traditional Chemical Peels. You can return to normal activities immediately afterwards.

CPW Vein & Aesthetic Center offers two different Chemical Peels suited to your needs:

PCA Peel® with Hydroquinone & Resorcinol Exfoliating Treatment
The most potent PCA Peel® formula, this peel will even skin tone and provide more exfoliation for oilier, thicker and more resilient skin types. It is effective on extremely sun damaged and thickened skin. It is also excellent for those with active/cystic acne and asphyxiated skin (dry on the surface, oily underneath).

-Or- for those who have sensitive skin but still need treatment:

Sensi Peel® Exfoliating Treatment
This gentle solution is formulated primarily for extremely sensitive skin types and ethnic skin. Sensi Peel® will strengthen and brighten the skin while helping to treat sun damage and other forms of hyperpigmentation (skin discoloration). This multi-faceted treatment also provides anti-inflammatory, anti-acne and antibacterial action, making it an excellent choice for helping calm rosacea, as redness and inflammation can subside substantially after treatment.

These Chemical Peels do multiple things; deeply exfoliate, remove fine lines & slight discolorations, calms redness and gives skin a more even, smoother, overall glow.  It can also eliminate acne without antibiotics!

The FDA-cleared treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate fat without surgery or downtime, just released its next generation treatment technology and we have it! The latest enhancements make it possible to offer valued patients like you transformational results with shorter treatment times and greater comfort than ever before.

Hyperhidrosis (excess sweating)
Excess sweating can ruin your clothes, as well as cause both physical and social discomfort. This often embarrassing problem is commonly seen on the underarms of both men and women. However, it can now be treated effectively using BOTOX®. A number of injections are painlessly placed into the area.

It safely and reversibly stuns overactive sweat glands for up to 12 months. The chemical that BOTOX® inhibits for wrinkles is also involved in the release of sweat in the body. This procedure is virtually free of side effects. The treatment does not have any effect on the body’s ability to regulate temperature or on other sweat glands elsewhere on the body. This treatment is also great for individuals sensitive to deodorants and antiperspirants. The treatment of hyperhidrosis is approved by the FDA, covered under a flexible spending account and is often covered by healthcare insurance companies.

As we grow older, signs of aging become more evident on our faces. This is recognizable as wrinkles and folds. There are various injectable cosmetic fillers available to help improve upon one's facial appearance and achieve a more youthful look. These fillers add volume and smooth out wrinkles. Collagen and fat are some of the more common fillers. However, Juvederm is a new form of injectable filler that provides advantages over fat and collagen injections.

Juvederm is a non-animal, biodegradable gel based on hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found in most of our bodies and therefore, rarely causes allergic reactions. Proven to last longer than fat and collagen injections, Juvederm maintains its shape using the body’s own moisture, and is used to shape facial contours, smooth wrinkles, and sculpt lips. The result is a long-lasting, healthy, more youthful, and fuller appearance.

Radiofrequency Microneedling with Pollogen Legend

It represents one of the latest developments in rejuvenating the skin. The combination of these technologies provides effective same day results of dermal volumizing, skin tightening and body sculpting. It is a great tool for improving skin texture, skin color, scarring and stretch marks.

This treatment offers amazing rejuvenating effects to patients with minimal to no downtime and limited discomfort. It is suitable for all skin types and all parts of the body.

Key treatment benefits include:

• Facial dermal volumizing/collagen building
• Minimizing colored lesions like melasma & age spots
• Wrinkle and fine line reduction
• Cellulite /Fat reduction
• Facial skin contouring
• Skin firming and rejuvenation
• Acne scar improvement

What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?

Microneedling is a technique that rejuvenates the skin by doing hundreds of tiny needle sticks. The needles are very small and go just into the skin. They feel rough but require no anesthesia. The needles cause minor superficial trauma to the skin. Then, the healing response not only tightens the skin, but also improves pigment and surface irregularities like scars and stretch marks. Microneedling alone is effective on superficial skin issues.

What is the importance of adding radiofrequency to the needling?

We use radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin. Adding radiofrequency to the needling enhances both the tightening and the rejuvenating effect.

Both microneedling and radiofrequency induce a healing response from the body. The injured areas release chemical messengers known as growth factors. These growth factors call in healing cells like macrophages, fibroblasts and stem cells. These cells clean up the damage. They also repair damage like age spots and old collagen. The result is rejuvenated skin. The combination results in a greater healing response than either procedure alone. It is like adding 1+1 and getting 3 because of the work they do together.

The combination approaches the effectiveness of some aggressive lasers with no downtime and none of the swelling or discomfort. The Legend system is also very safe, even when compared to other RF needling devices. Some of the other devices can go too shallow and have no benefit. Others can go too deep and even scar if the operator pressed too hard. The Legend system is automated so that it triggers with just the right pressure and you can't press too hard. This makes Legend RF needling one of the safest and most effective skin rejuvenating procedures available.

How long does a treatment take?

Depending on the area, a treatment usually takes about 20-40 minutes. The tiny wounds remain open for about 4 hours, so we advise you to not put anything on your face including makeup for about 4 hours. After that you may be a little red overnight, but it is fine to use makeup. Swelling and bruising is unusual.

How many Legend RF needling treatment do I need?

We typically recommend about 6-8 treatments about 1-3 weeks apart. Each treatment builds on the previous treatment. The first treatment induces release of chemical messengers known as growth factors. Special healing cells respond to the growth factors and cause a healing and rejuvenating response.

When cells and growth factors are already present, an even greater growth factor and cellular response occurs. Therefore, multiple treatments 1-2 weeks apart results in a greater response than treatments several weeks or months apart.

When would you use Radiofrequency Microneedling instead of Radiofrequency without the Microneedling?

If we are wanting tightening over a large area and smoothing, radiofrequency without the needling is recommended. If you have color changes or surface problems like scars or stretch marks, microneedling with RF is recommended. We almost always do the combination when treating the face.
