Does the idea of surgery make you uncomfortable? If so, you’re not alone. “Going under the knife” is something that a lot of people out there just aren’t ready for. In fact, it’s usually the knife that’s the scary part! The invasive nature of surgery can seem intimidating and extreme. This is totally understandable!
Thankfully, there are many cosmetic procedures available today that can create results comparable to cosmetic surgery. Dr. Flaharty has selected the most effective of these procedures and packaged them together in what we call the Azul Non-Surgical Facelift.
Believe it or not, non-invasive procedures actually have a number of benefits compared to traditional cosmetic surgery, the biggest one being the downtime. Cosmetic surgery is invasive and therefore will require downtime, the amount depending on the procedure. With these non-invasive procedures, the downtime is minimal to even non-existent. You walk into the practice to have your Non-Surgical Facelift, and you walk out again just a few hours later, ready to go!
Since everyone has different cosmetic needs, the Non-Surgical Facelift is specifically customized to your personal goals. Before anything, we arrange a consult between you and Dr. Flaharty to figure out exactly what procedures are best for you and what combination will give you the most harmonious result possible.
The Azul Non-Surgical Facelift is made up of a combination of these non-invasive treatments, packaged together at a 20% discount:
This famous cosmetic procedure first gained popularity with celebrities, and is now used all over the world to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles that appear around the eyes and forehead. We inject a tiny amount of a paralyzing agent into the small muscles that cause these wrinkles to be formed. As the muscles are weakened, your muscles stop contracting and the crow’s feet and forehead furrows fade away.
As we age, we lose collagen and elastin in our skin. This leads to drooping skin, deep wrinkles and a loss of volume in the face. That is where dermal fillers come in. Think of fillers as all-natural sculpting clay for your face. We inject the filler into your deeper wrinkles, filling them out. We can also use them to restore lost facial volume, softening your facial features and filling out the area around your cheeks.
Intense Pulsed Light
Intense pulsed light is specifically designed to gently renew damaged skin. Precise levels of light energy are delivered through the skin to reduce redness and sunspots by up to 90%. The light targets only the discolorations in your skin, leaving the rest of the tissue healthy and untouched. The light energy also stimulates the production of collagen, helping to naturally restore volume, reduce fine lines and give a natural lift.
Combining RF energy and microneedling into one treatment, Infini is one of the most effective non-surgical treatments to stimulate new collagen production deep in the skin. An applicator delivers focused RF energy to precise depths of your skin. This creates a sort of intentional skin “injury” that kicks your body’s natural healing process into action, to develop new collagen and help promote skin tightening. Infini can greatly reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sunspots, uneven texture, acne scars and sagging skin.
With Ultherapy, ultrasound energy is projected into your skin to deliver focused heat at the perfect depth to promote new collagen growth. The new collagen produced will both tighten and firm your skin while leaving the top layer of your skin undisturbed.
During a chemical peel, a solution is applied to your skin that helps exfoliate and remove the top layer of skin to reveal the smoother, healthier skin beneath. We offer a number of different peels, depending on what your skin needs. A chemical peel can address many skin concerns, from simple environmentally damaged skin to superficial pigmentation.
We’re extremely excited about the Azul Non-Surgical Facelift and the incredible results it yields. Together, this group of procedures can give results comparable to surgery with just a fraction of the downtime and discomfort.
