At Desert Aesthetic & Vein Centre, we offer a wide variety of aesthetic treatments to improve your skin tone, elasticity and overall complexion.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that allows body contouring through direct fat removal. Sometimes a healthy diet and plenty of exercise are not enough to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that just refuse to let go. Liposuction allows fat located in the abdomen, arms, legs, back, sides and neck to be removed directly. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation or general anesthesia depending on the location and amount of fat targeted for removal.
During the procedure, small incisions are made in the targeted area to allow for insertion of a thin metal tube called a cannula. Fat is then loosened using back and forth motions before being suctioned out through the cannula. Incisions are generally small enough to heal on their own without the need for sutures and will leave behind minimal, if any, scarring.
laser skin resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing uses laser energy to break down dull skin layers, sun damage and other blemishes marring your complexion to allow clear, beautiful skin to shine through. The intensity of the laser can vary depending on the depth of treatment needed to achieve the desired results. Non-ablative lasers provide gentle treatment with minimal side effects and a quick recovery. Ablative lasers create more controlled destruction of the epidermis and require a lengthier recovery period but create dramatic results on damaged and aged skin.
Laser resurfacing can target:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Scarring, including acne scars
- Sun damage and freckles
- Pigmentation and age spots
- Loose skin caused by aging
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive treatment that improves overall skin quality and texture. Microneedling restores the skin’s youthful vitality by inducing collagen and elastin production to treat acne scars, improve skin tone, soften fine lines and wrinkles, reverse sun damage and reduce pore size.
During treatment, a handheld device containing a series of tiny medical-grade needles is used to puncture the skin and induce controlled injuries to the epidermis, prompting the body’s natural wound response to activate. Radiofrequency energy simultaneously warms the skin to produce more collagen and elastin, providing an added bonus to the effects of microneedling. Skin treated by RF microneedling benefits from increased nutrient production without actually undergoing any significant injury.
facial fat transfer
Volume loss is one of the main effects of aging that can contribute to loose skin, wrinkles, and hollowed cheeks and eyes. While injectable fillers have become a popular synthetic option for restoring volume and turning back the clock, facial fat transfer is an option that utilizes natural means to both de-age the face and contour the body.
Facial fat transfer procedures start with liposuction to remove the fat that will eventually be added to the face. Fat can be removed from anywhere in the body, including the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms and neck. Once the liposuction is completed, the fat is strategically injected into the targeted areas to eliminate signs of aging. Facial fat transfer provides a natural means for treating wrinkles, filling in hollow cheeks and even volumizing lips.
facetite for skin tightening
FaceTite is a minimally invasive facelift alternative that provides transformative results without the need for surgery. FaceTite utilizes RF energy to create thermal skin contraction by heating the underlying and external tissues of the skin. FaceTite treatments are completed under local anesthesia with mild oral sedation and are generally considered to be painless. A thin probe is inserted through a small hole to heat the underlying structures of the loose skin, while an external electrode is simultaneously passed over the skin’s surface. This layered approach creates a controlled thermal field that applies heat to both the external and internal tissues of the skin.
bodytite for body contouring
BodyTite is a nonsurgical body contouring procedure that uses the same technology present in FaceTite to tighten skin and reduce fat. Using RF energy, BodyTite induces skin contraction and fat lipolysis to both tighten skin and melt away fat in the targeted areas. Commonly targeted areas include the abdomen, flanks, thighs, arms and neck.
vanquish me & vanquish flex
The BTL Vanquish ME device provides contactless body contouring with no downtime or side effects. Vanquish ME uses RF energy to gently warm fatty tissues and cause cellular disruption, thereby killing fat cells but leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. The body then naturally disposes of the dead cells for noticeable results in as little as two to three weeks. Fat in the abdomen and sides can be targeted for body contouring using the Vanquish ME device. With the Vanquish Flex applicator, Desert Aesthetic & Vein Centre can also provide contactless body contouring of the thighs and arms.
Treatments take about 30 to 45 minutes per targeted area. About four sessions spaced one week apart yield optimal results.
