Cheeks, Chin & Beautiful Skin

 

Join us on Tuesday, April 26th to learn more about Voluma (cheeks), Kybella (chin) and our SkinMedica Products (beautiful skin).

Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area. It’s a great way to combat sagginess and give your face a “lift” without surgery.

KYBELLA is the nonsurgical solution to put an end that double chin – and it’s a great way to look fabulous in all those selfies.  The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.  When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Most patients require two to three sessions for optimal results.

SkinMedica® professional skin care products are the result of almost two decades of research and clinical experience. SkinMedica scientists are continually working on new formulations and clinically testing our products to provide the next breakthrough in skin care. Our staff love these products – especially the new HA5 which provides immediate smoothing in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and supports the skin’s natural ability to replenish its own hyaluronic acid (HA) for overall skin health.

Appointments are available from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm, but space is limited so call us at 706.543.0404 to reserve your time.  All attendees will receive special pricing on Voluma, Kybella and our SkinMedica products.

Take Care of Your Skin When You’re Sick

Cold and flu season are here, and not only does your body feel bad, but your skin can suffer some ill effects, as well.  To make sure your skin stays healthy while you’re sick, follow some of these simple tips from us here at Parker Plastic Surgery.

1. Use a humidifier at night. Dry air can rob your skin of essential moisture and many decongestants will dehydrate the skin, as well.  Having a humidifier helps to maintain hydration levels in the skin.

2. Apply a cold gel mask to your skin.  We all know a cold pack is a great way to help alleviate a pounding head or achy face. But did you know that since decongestants can dehydrate the skin, a gel mask is a good way to help replenish skin’s moisture?

3. Keep moisturizer on your nose at all times. We’ve seen the Puffs Plus commercials, and chances are, we’ve all been there. Blowing your nose repeatedly can cause red, dry, and irritated skin, so after every blow, apply a small amount of moisturizer to the nose area for comfort and repair.

4. Think mint.  With all that congestion, it can be downright hard to breathe.  Look for products that contain mint as it helps open clogged nasal passages.  You can also sip on some mint tea.  It can help with congestion, drain sinuses and soothe a sore throat.

5. Drink lots of water.  It’s always important to stay hydrated, and keeping fluids in your system can help flush away toxins and keep your internal temperature down.

Put Your Best Face Forward

Chances are the holidays meant eating too much, celebrating too much, and probably not getting enough sleep.  And more than likely, your complexion is a little less than radiant now that the holidays are behind us and we’ve entered 2013.  That being said, we here at Parker Plastic Surgery think the new year is a perfect time to “put your best face forward” with a new skin care regimen.

By making some easy modifications to your daily routine – drinking more water, eating a balanced diet, getting active and sleeping better – you can take control of how your skin looks.  Of course, an anti-aging skincare regimen is also recommended, and our products from Revision Skincare can put you on the road to success.

We invite you to make an appointment for a complimentary skincare consultation with our nurse, Shawna King, who can help you choose the right products for your skin and your lifestyle.  To schedule your consultation, please give us a call at 706.543.0404.
