RF Microneedling for your Skin’s Fresh Start

Free RF Microneedling with ThermiTightWe’re excited to share that Dr. Greg Pisarski of Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery offers RF Microneedling, a new radio frequency (RF) microneedling treatment that effectively remodels collagen, improves wrinkles, and diminishes scars. This radio frequency treatment is a non-surgical procedure with little to no down time.

How does RF Microneedling work?

The microneedling device delivers heat deep within the skin layers using controlled RF energy. It also uses an Arctic Chill Cold Air System for patient comfort. This targeted energy revitalizes, rebuilds, and effectively stimulates and remodels collagen and elastin, improving wrinkles and diminishing scars while leaving the outer layer of skin intact. This is the key to minimal downtime. The surface of the skin is left intact as the collagen remodeling is stimulated from the inside out. This results in a firmer, smoother, and more consistent skin surface.

In addition, our RF Microneedling treatment is a non-surgical option for patients interested in a treatment to remove unwanted wrinkles and scars with little to no downtime. It’s a safe, effective solution with many people seeing skin improvements after just the first treatment, with optimal results seen after three treatments.

The treatment has customizable microneedle tips for all skin types. We also offer specialized handpieces to treat both the face and body. The in-office treatment typically takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. We also offer Pro-Nox for patient comfort. It is similar to laughing gas at the dental office. Pro-Nox takes effect in seconds, therefore offers immediate relief of discomfort and anxiety.

Got Spots? Get CryoCorrect.

Plastic Surgery in Lake Jackson, TX

Stubborn age spots, sun spots and skin tags. We all have them, and most of us want to get rid of them. Meet CryoCorrect, our treatment from SkinCeuticals, to safely and effectively remove unwanted spots. Let’s talk about cryotherapy, and what to expect from a CryoCorrect treatment.

Cryotherapy uses extreme cold to target spots and skin tags. The term “cryotherapy” comes from the Greek word cryo, meaning cold. Basically, it treats skin lesions that don’t look like the normal surrounding skin. Age spots, sun spots, and skin tags are removed using a precise flow of carbon dioxide (CO2). The carbon dioxide freezes the skin at a milder temperature than traditional cryogens like liquid nitrogen, resulting in a softer, shallower, more comfortable freeze. This allows the surrounding skin to stay intact, which means a shorter period of healing for the patient. It is a highly effective treatment for a broad range of skin issues.

In a CryoCorrect treatment, the spot or skin tag is frozen quickly for about 8 seconds using the handheld device. The device resembles a pen with a tip. The treated spot will turn darker, and this color may stick around for 3 to 5 days. At that point a scab will form, then slough off in 2 to 3 weeks. Your normal healthy skin will appear. As with most procedures and treatments, each body heals uniquely so it could take up to 12 weeks. It is important to protect your skin with sunscreen, especially as it is healing. At Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery, we have a wide array of chemical and physical sunscreen products that we recommend.

Results can be seen in as little as 1 treatment, with visible improvement as early as 4 weeks. The treatment has been clinically proven to completely remove age spots and sun spots, and safe and effective for skin tags. This month only receive a free CryoCorrect Treatment with a Pulsed Light Series purchase, so this is the perfect time for you to spring-clean your skin and try CryoCorrect on us. Treatment plans vary by individual, but it can be effective to treat Pulsed Light first and then get any stubborn spots remaining with CryoCorrect.  If this spot-reducing treatment intrigues you, we’ll schedule a time for you to meet with Dr. Gregory Pisarski and the staff. Call us at 979-297-9289, or use our contact form  online. Follow us on Facebook to stay current on specials and giveaways for CryoCorrect and other procedures, treatments and services.

Get Holiday Glow Ready with VI Peel™

Plastic Surgery in Lake Jackson, TX

Don’t let the word ‘peel’ make you nervous—a VI Peel at Dr. Pisarski’s Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery is a non-invasive approach to healthier, younger looking skin with very little downtime.  You’ll feel more confident in your skin for the holidays and beyond in just 7 days. Sloughing off those dead skin cells reveals healthier skin cells underneath. A peel can help the skin think differently by encouraging it to ‘start over.’

The VI Peel uses a synergistic blend of powerful ingredients to smooth skin texture by safely removing the damaged outer layers of skin. The treatment contains a variety of acids, vitamins and minerals. It is suitable for all skin types. This is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Aside from the possibility of a slight burning sensation or stinging sensation during the treatment, the peel is painless. Peels can be done on the face, neck or hands.

Sun exposure, acne, and aging can leave skin tone uneven, scarred, spotted or wrinkled. A VI Peel targets:

  • Acne and the scars acne leaves behind
  • Fine lines
  • Sun damage
  • Pore size
  • Wrinkles
  • Irregular pigmentation

This peel doesn’t interrupt your life, which is especially beneficial for a busy lifestyle. The treatment time is less than an hour, and you can head back to work or play. You typically start peeling on day 2 or 3, and finish peeling by day 7. It typically looks like a slight sunburn that is flaking off. For post-peel care we recommend products that relieve you of any tightness or dryness to keep you comfortable. As with any peel, do not pull off your peeling skin! Let the shedding process happen naturally. It’s also very important to wear sunscreen, and avoid certain products and treatments while peeling. Dr. Pisarski will give you detailed post-treatment instructions.

We offer single treatment peels, as well as a series of peels. We can typically optimize your results through a peel series, but noticeable results are realized after one treatment. Our treatment recommendation is based on your desired outcome. You will see improvement once the skin finishes peeling, but full results will appear at about 4 to 6 weeks. Skin will be smoother, firmer, and clearer with a more youthful and radiant glow than before. Peels are typically space about 4 weeks apart. VI Peel pairs well with Dysport or fillers for that extra restorative oomph.

This month only, receive a free VI Peel with your PrecisionTx™ Neck Treatment. It’s the perfect time to peel before your holiday events and errands get under full swing. Call us to schedule at (979) 297-9289, or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Pisarski. ‘LIKE’ us on Facebook to stay current on our Special Events, Promotions, Giveaways.

Breast Augmentation in Lake Jackson, TX

gravity on your knees, stomach, arms or back? Dr. Pisarski can tighten and lift these areas using radio frequency energy non-surgically. ThermiTight® uses temperature controlled radio frequency heat which stimulates new collagen to rally and remodel the skin. This results in a more youthful you!

Science Behind ThermiTight®

This technology works by delivering a controlled, intense burst of heat triggering your body’s own rejuvenation process and inducing skin tightening, reduction of wrinkles, and the improvement of body contouring. Radio frequency energy is also used to heat the fat layer under the skin causing the release of fat cells and inducing shrinkage of the fat cells. This ultimately leads to volume reduction and improvement in the outer tissue appearance. With the Thermi technology Dr. Pisarski is able to control the temperature of the heat and keep it perfectly targeted for maximum results, while still protecting the outer layers of the skin. This results in a speedier healing process.

What to Expect

The ThermiTight® procedure is minimally invasive. We use a local anesthetic in the area to keep you comfortable. A very tiny probe is inserted through a very small incision. The incision is so small it doesn’t require stitches. The probe does the work underneath the skin’s surface, sending out radiofrequency heat and energy. This disrupts fat pockets and melts them, and stimulates the collagen. Depending on the number of treated areas, the procedure takes an average of an hour. Throughout the procedure the Thermal Image Guidance provides constant feedback for patient safety.

You may experience slight swelling or redness and mild soreness that will subside over the next couple of days post procedure. Following your ThermiTight®, you can leave the office and immediately resume your everyday routine. Results are often noticed immediately, with maximum effects seen after 6-12 weeks. Collagen production is increased and skin elasticity is improved. If you’re nervous about invasive surgery, or you don’t have time in your schedule for lengthy recovery, ThermiTight® is perfect for you. Come in to Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery for a consultation and we’ll discuss your skin-tightening goals. Based on your skin laxity and texture, we’ll make our treatment recommendation for you. During August, we’re offering free ThermiTight® with your Tummy Tuck purchase. Call today to schedule your consultation at 979-297-9289.
