The current year is quickly coming to a close, and with the impending start of a new year many people take stock of what measures can be taken to renew their selves or otherwise make improvements to their physical and mental wellbeing. While such thinking generally revolves around resolutions concerning diet and exercise, professional cosmetic enhancement provides other means for helping create a new you in the new year.
While Gardner Plastic Surgery offers various cosmetic surgery options designed to enhance facial and body features of both men and women, Dr. Paul Gardner and his highly experienced team also offer a wide range of noninvasive and minimally invasive procedures through Tru Glo Medspa.
Medspa Noninvasive Procedures Include Fillers and Laser Sculpting
A Medspa offers a variety of noninvasive and minimally invasive dermal fillers and laser sculpting procedures in conjunction or as an alternative to many of the surgical enhancements offered by Dr. Gardner. Injectable dermal fillers are used to smooth out the folds and lines in the skin by filling in wrinkles, while laser sculpting procedures rely on targeted laser heating to kill fat cells, tighten the skin and enhance collagen production. Medspa treatments are generally performed quickly and offer the convenience of little to no recovery time, allowing most patients to resume normal daily activities quickly.
