In addition to Anti-Aging and functional medicine, Aspen Grey, provides popular aesthetic services that reduce the outward signs of aging. Below is a list of the aesthetic services that are available to Dr. Hellman's patients.
Botox: BOTOX Cosmetic is an acetylcholine release inhibitor and a neuromuscular blocking
agent indicated for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles in adult patients ≤ 65 years of age. It requires an injection with a small needle to approved areas of the face and in general, it takes 5 to 7 days for full muscular blockade after the initial injection. The effects of botox last 3 months. Therefore, to maintain neuromuscular blockade, injections are given on 3-month intervals.
Laser hair removal: Laser hair removal is a treatment by which cohesive light energy is used to destroy the hair follicles present in areas of the skin with unwanted hair. 5 to 7 treatments with the laser over a 1 to 2 month period is required to maintain long lasting results. The effectiveness of these treatments are dependent on the energy and wavelength of laser light used and the size, depth, color and location of the hair follicle.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments: Is a multi-modality intense pulsed light treatment
commonly used for treatment of unwanted hair, unsightly vascular lesions (spider veins), loose and wrinkled skin, undesirable areas of skin pigmentation and persistent acne. Unlike other Anti-Aging medicine lasers, which use a narrow band of intense light, IPL treatments use high intensity pulses of broadband light. The treatments are non-ablative, do not damage the surface of the skin and have varying lengths of effect depending on the problem being treated.
Coolsculpting-Non-Invasive Body Contouring: The non-invasive body contouring procedures available today safely disrupt and reduce superficial pockets of fat in both men and women. The procedure requires no anesthesia and is free of the complications associated with surgery. The technology gently disperses fat in a convenient, short “walk-in, walk-out” session carried out in an informal, non-surgical environment. The fat is then naturally disposed of by the body over a 3-4 week period. After treatment, patients can immediately resume their daily routines.
