Medical Aesthetics Q & A

What medical aesthetic procedures rejuvenate my skin?

The in-house aesthetician at Sensor Medica Clinic offers several procedures that restore more youthful skin:

Chemical peels

Chemical peels revitalize your skin by removing dead and damaged skin. Mild peels only exfoliate the upper layer of skin, while stronger peels penetrate more deeply to remove multiple layers.

Depending on the depth of the peel, a chemical peel may treat:

  • Dry or dull skin
  • Red skin
  • Age spots
  • Scarring
  • Clogged pores
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven facial tone
  • Rough skin texture

You can schedule mild chemical peels regularly to prevent future skin problems and fight wrinkles. 

Microneedling

Microneedling uses a device containing many small, fine needles (microneedles) to gently puncture your skin. These controlled wounds trigger the healing response and make your skin produce more collagen and elastin.

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning exfoliates your skin using a specialized blade to remove dead skin and hair from your face. The procedure eliminates dull, dry skin, sun-damaged skin, and fine wrinkles.

How do injectables diminish wrinkles?

The team at Sensor Medica Clinic offers two types of injectables: 

Botox

Botox consists of botulinum toxin that your aesthetician injects into specific facial muscles to stop muscle contractions. As the muscles relax, the wrinkles caused by those muscles virtually disappear.

Botox specifically treats forehead furrows, frown lines, and crow’s feet. You’ll see improvement in 24-48 hours, and treatment lasts up to four months.

Dermal fillers

Your aesthetician injects dermal fillers just under your skin, directly below the targeted wrinkle. The filler plumps up the area and diminishes the wrinkle’s appearance.

Dermal fillers treat fine lines around your lips and moderate to severe wrinkles around your nose and mouth. Your aesthetician may use dermal fillers to plump up your cheeks and lips or add volume to your face.

Dermal fillers give you immediate results that last 1-2 years, depending on the type.

What cosmetic problems improve with the ThermoClear Skin Treatment System?

ThermoClear is a nonsurgical system that uses high and low radiofrequency energy to eliminate skin imperfections such as: 

  • Sun and age spots
  • Skin tags
  • Spider veins
  • Cholesterol deposits
  • Cherry angiomas
  • Milia
  • Fibromas
  • Keratosis 

During a ThermoClear treatment, your provider uses a tiny device to tap or brush the surface of the targeted blemish or lesion. The device sends out radiofrequency energy that gently vaporizes and dries the treated area. 

Some problems, such as spider veins, may disappear immediately. Other larger lesions like skin tags turn into dry, crusted areas that flake off over the next few days. Most skin problems only need one treatment and then permanently disappear.

What other medical aesthetic services might I receive?

Sensor Medica Clinic offers other medical aesthetic options such as:

  • Nail fungus treatment
  • Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) treatment
  • Callus removal
  • Cellulite shockwave treatments

They also offer classic, hybrid, and volume lashes.
