Laser Treatments

If your skin is dull and in need of a pick-me-up, PicoSure and CO2 laser treatments can give your skin a youthful glow. PicoSure delivers lightning-fast energy pulses at trillionths of a second (pic-second) to the skin in order to promote collagen and elastin production. PicoSure treatments target fine wrinkles and skin laxity, while improving skin quality, texture and tone. The treatments take less than 20 minutes and produce optimal results with about three treatments spaced three to four weeks apart.

CO2 is a fractionally ablative laser treatment that addresses sun damage, brown spots, acne scars and poor skin texture. Usually each client requires one session for years of results, although multiple sessions can be scheduled as necessary. Recovery takes about one week, while your skin will continue to benefit from the increased collagen and elastin production for up to several weeks.

Dermal Fillers & Injectable Treatments

Dr. Thornton offers top of the line dermal fillers and injectable treatments to his patients, including Botox and Juvéderm. If getting rid of your wrinkles is one of your resolutions for 2018, Botox is the solution. Botox addresses crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles and frown lines for smooth, youthful skin. Results take about four to seven days to set in and typically last three to four months. With regular Botox appointments every few months, you can ensure your skin will stay wrinkle-free for years to come.

The Juvéderm line of dermal fillers is composed hyaluronic acid (HA) based family of dermal fillers that restore volume lost due to aging. If you have noticed the development of deep tear troughs or hollows cheeks, Juvéderm treatments can resupply the HA that aging has taken away. Due to their smooth formulation, Juvéderm products are also popularly used to plump and volumize lips. Like Botox, Juvéderm treatments require a minimal amount of downtime and have very mild side effects that should not disrupt your everyday life. Results look best three to five days after the injection and can last one year or more, so you will not have to worry about routine maintenance appointments every few months. Our most commonly used HA dermal fillers include Voluma for midface and cheeks, Volbella for lips and lip lines, Vollure for nasolabial folds, Belotero for tear troughs and lip lines, and Radiesse for midface and cheeks.

Cosmetic Surgery

If you are more interested in natural and long-lasting skin treatments, Dr. Thornton offers both facelifts and facial fat grafting to help you turn back the clock and revitalize your appearance for years to come. A facelift can take years of wrinkles off of your face by targeting loose skin and skin laxity in the lower face, jowls and neck. Incisions can be hidden inconspicuously around the ears for scars that are imperceptible to the average eye.

Facial fat grafting restores lost volume in the face, similar to how Juvéderm is used. Liposuction is used to remove fat from elsewhere in the body—typically the abdomen, love handles or thighs—and then injected into the targeted areas for results that are natural. Not only will you enjoy the benefits of increased facial volume, but you will also enjoy a slimmer figure and more beautiful body contour from liposuction.

If any of these facial rejuvenation options interest you, give Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center a call today at 817-477-9000 to schedule your consultation. Double board-certified Dr. Michael Thornton will work with you one-on-one to bring your vision to life.
