New Alternative To Filler For Lip Enhancement & "Smoker's" Lines
For those who want to smooth out lines around their lips or enhance their lips without using dermal fillers, absorbable threads are now another option.

The threads are made of the same material as absorbable sutures used during surgery, and they stimulate the production of collagen around them as they slowly dissolve. Skinspirations uses threads made of polycaprolactone (PCL) that last about 2 years, unlike the polydiaxone (PDO) threads used by most practices, that only lasts 6 months.

When placed along the edges of the lips as shown above, they increase lip definition & fullness, and several placed parallel to the lips can lift out lip line furrows.

Study Shows Microneedling Significantly Improves Lines,Texture & Skin Laxity 
A study just published in the Journal of Clinical & Aesthetic Dermatology looked at the results of 4 automated microneedling treatments done a month apart, on 48 patients, with a device similar to our SkinPen. 

Significant improvement in fine lines, laxity, wrinkles & texture were seen with maximal results noted 150 days after the 4th treatment and there were no incidences of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

I used to believe that the more traumatic the treatment, the better the results, but I was wrong.

Survey Results Highlight Sex Differences in Skin Care Habits

  • 80% of women care about the appearance of their neck but only 38% are using a neck product*
  • 28% of people ages 18-34 said they spend more time on their daily skin routine than they do reading the news 
  • The majority of respondents (65.9%) think that pores can shrink, open or close, when, in actuality, pore size is genetic; they cannot be shrunk or go away.

Profractional scar
New Study Shows Skin Graft Appearance Improved By Laser
Fractional ablative resurfacing lasers, such as our Profractional,  are known to be effective for improving scars but a recent study published in Lasers in Surgery & Medicine showed that skin grafts were also improved by the treatment.
After 2 treatments done a month apart, the skin grafts showed smoother, more evenly pigmented skin that was still present when reevaluated a year later.
