One of the top things women think about as they age are the physical effects that come with getting older. No matter how many cremes, sunscreen, or moisturizers you use, nothing seems to give you the outcome you hope for. Looking in the mirror and continuing to feel disappointed with your trials can be frustrating. Here at Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, we want you to consider Clear Lift.
 

What is Clear Lift?

 
Clear Lift is a painless, non-ablative approach to laser skin resurfacing. Formally known as Pixel Q-switch, you will enjoy fast laser treatments with results that will be visible following each treatment. What makes Clear Lift unique compared to other treatments is that although it improves fine lines, wrinkles, and the appearance of small veins and redness, it treats areas that are too sensitive to treat with traditional lasers.
 
Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa’s aestheticians perform Clear Lift on the face, neck chest, and other areas that you might be interested in treating. This is a great skin treatment that tightens your skin without harming the layer underneath your epidermis and has mainly been known for reducing the fine lines in your face.
 

What’s different about Clear Lift?

 
No one has to know that you came in and visited Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa for Clear Lift because there is no down time and you will be able to apply makeup immediately following your appointment. In fact, many of our patients receive these treatments before special events such as weddings, reunions, or job interviews to that they can attend their event and have that rejuvenating glow. You can receive these treatments any time of the year and unlike many other lasers, Clear Lift is safe for all skin tones.  Clear Lift gives an intense, rapid pulse of laser to the area of skin that is being treated. Another advantage of Clear Lift is that it builds collagen. Collagen is the support structure that you need in your skin that makes you look more youthful.
 
If keeping your skin healthy is important to you and you want to look in the mirror and see the results that other alternatives haven’t given you, schedule your Clear Lift appointment with us today!

What To Expect From A Photofacial
A photofacial or IPL, is a 30-minute procedure in which intense pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into the skin. Photofacial then causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines. The procedure involves only minimal discomfort, while the redness and swelling that sometimes occur after treatment disappear shortly. Most benefits of a photofacial occur gradually in the weeks following treatment
DAY OF THE PROCEDURE
Before the procedure begins, make sure your skin is free of any tanning products or makeup. Avoid prolong sun exposure and any topical retinoids. Your skin will be cleansed and a cool gel will be applied to the treatment area, both to lubricate the handpiece and cool the skin. You will be given eye protection to protect your eyes from the bright flashes of light.
DURING THE PROCEDURE
During the IPL/photofacial procedure, you will feel a warm sensation caused by the handpiece. Some patients describe the sensation to a light “snap” from a rubber band. The number of pulses you receive will depend on the size of the area being treated. Following the procedure, your skin care specialist may help you in icing down the treatment area to help soothe any discomfort from the procedure. This is often unnecessary, however, as IPL/photofacial treatment causes very little pain.
AFTER THE PROCEDURE
The recovery time from an IPL skin procedure is often very short, as there is very little damage done to the skin during treatment. Depending on the skin condition you are seeking to remedy as well as your skin type, the redness that is present following the procedure may persist for a longer or shorter period of time. The side effects of IPL/photofacial treatment dissipate within a few hours for many patients. For some patients, however, the redness or dark spots may take a week to fade. Patients treated for severe acne sometimes experience longer recovery times, though they are often amazed by the results when the side effects wear off.

Here at Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa the HydraFacial is ideal for all skin types and targets hyperpigmentation, oily/congested pores, fine lines, and wrinkles. With no down time, it leaves your skin glowing and looking healthier in about 30 minutes. For a standard HydraFacial there are four steps.
Step 1: Cleansing and exfoliation. The hand piece gently glides along the skin using a Vortex-Exfoliation combined with the Activ-4 serum that removes dead skin cells. The key ingredients are glycolic and lactic acid, algae extract that calms  and soothes and yeast extract that firms and smoothes the appearance of fine lines.
Step 2: Acid peel. A mixture of glycolic and salycilic acid delivers the benefits of a peel without the post-peel scaling. It also helps to break up dirt and clogged pores.


Step 3: Extractions. Instead of performing manual extractions, the HydraFacial uses a Vortex-Suction that acts as a vacuum to clean out pores with the help of the Beta-HD serum. This serum uses honey extract that adds a boost of hydration and anti-bacterial benefits, Spirea Ulmaria Flower extract that soothes and calms and salicylic acid gently exfoliates and aids in extractions.
Step 4: Serum application. The Antiox+ serum is now delivered to nourish and protect the skin with Antioxidants like Horse Chestnut Seed, Green Tea and Arnica Flower Extracts. TonePerfect Complex addresses skin tone by reducing melanin production and preventing the appearance of brown spots and discoloration. It also instantly firms and tightens. Hyaluronic Acid helps to plump and deeply hydrate and Earth Mineral Peptides boost collagen and elastin production to help eliminate fine lines. Sunscreen is then applied and you on your way to healthy, radiant skin.
With just one treatment you can visibly see that your skin is more hydrated and youthful.  Monthly treatments are recommended for best results. Let Dr. Mark Bishara and his staff guide you on your journey to healthy skin with the help of the HydraFacial MD.
