The Latest in Facial Aesthetics – Gold Coast Plastic Surgery and Laser Center

Everyone wants to know the latest and greatest way to look younger. Is it a new injection, laser or cream? So often the next big breakthrough in the beauty industry fizzles out, never to be heard from again. Every year new medications and devices are gaining FDA approval for use in facial aesthetics. So many patients want to avoid surgery either now or forever. Board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Chang Soo Kim, feels the latest innovation in aesthetics in not one thing but many things. His Lite Touch Facial Rejuvenation refines a combined approach to looking healthy. Aged skin looks different than youthful skin on may different levels and should be treated with different methods. On the surface, fine lines create a dull appearance. Deeper down, brown and red age spots along with spider veins are obvious signs of aging. Finally, deeper lines and thinning of skin collagen and fat indicate more advanced age. These features of unhealthy skin that appear over time are best corrected with a combined approach.

Year after year, Botox Cosmetic is the most popular, non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the United States. There are many reasons that millions of patients are treated each year. Botox treatments are simple and virtually pain free. The injections safely improve expression lines, concentration lines and animated wrinkles of the face by temporarily weakening selective small muscles. These are the same small muscles that eventually create deeper, static creases, so regular Botox treatments can also prevent the formation of some wrinkles. Dr. Chang Soo Kim of Gold Coast Plastic Surgery and Laser Center combines Botox treatments with wrinkle fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm. These popular hyaluronic acid wrinkle fillers are injected directly into skin wrinkles to fill unwanted creases, especially around the mouth and cheeks. The results are instantaneous. Also, Juvederm and Restylane are effective treatments for plumping lips and filling the hollows under eyes. These fillers have the added benefit of lasting up to a year. Those who want a longer lasting wrinkle treatment or who have more advanced signs of aging such as thinning of collagen and fat can combine Botox with Sculptra injections. Sculptra works by stimulating the body to produce new collagen. Often called a “liquid facelift,” patients see the effect of thicker skin, fewer wrinkles and increased volume over time. Many patients prefer Sculptra since results can last over two years. All products used by Dr. Kim have FDA approval for cosmetic purposes.

The final component that needs to be addressed is skin discoloration and fine lines. Dr. Kim prefers the multi wavelength Sciton Joule laser system for it’s safety and versatility. The erbium laser can create anything from a light surface Microlaser Peel for fine lines to a deeper Pro-fractional skin tightening. A BBL treatment can be added to this to erase unwanted brown spots and red discoloration. The Lite Touch Facial Rejuvenation can combine all of the latest injectables, laser and skincare to give an overall youthful appearance to the skin.

To maintain and improve skin health, an effective skincare regimen must contain three fundamental elements- prevention, protection and correction. Dr. Kim prefers SkinCeuticals and Eminence skincare products. SkinCeuticals product philosophy is built around these principles.

Our Organic Detox Facial is one of kind. By using fruit enzymes to break down dead skin cells, fine lines are decreased to create a firmer, tighter appearance thus reducing the signs of aging. First you are cleansed and toned with the appropriate products. Using our organic products, a detox treatment is applied which will stimulate the blood flow making your skin feeling hot and tingly. It is left on for about 4-8 min depending on sensitivity. Detoxification of the skin is completed with a cool towel and a soothing chamomile tonic is applied to calm and soothe the skin. For extra relief, a calming mask is also applied to alleviate any redness or sensitivity. Topped off with our serums which are loaded with vitamins and antioxidants to help rejuvenate the skin and create a youthful glow, this facial stimulates collagen and elastin which is responsible for softer and smoother skin.

Our Custom Facial is a great start for everyone. It will refresh your skin starting with a cleanser that has key ingredients such as Alpha Hydroxy acids that help to decongest the skin. The face is then toned to balance the pH, kill bacteria and remove excess oil and dirt residue. Your aesthetician will choose the appropriate mask for your unique skin type which will help to loosen debris in your pores. Using a Clarisonic brush with micro polish beads, your skin is gently exfoliated. Exfoliation is a very important step in a home care regimen as well because it with assist and rejuvenate new cells to grow and come to the surface. Extractions are done to clean out congested pores. Finally, the calming mask is applied to alleviate any redness or irritation to the skin. At Gold Coast Plastic Surgery, we pamper you with serums that are loaded with anti-oxidants and vitamins which will penetrate much deeper into the epidermis for added protection. Moisturizer is a given to lock in the moisture and refresh the skin.
