CREATING CONFIDENCE. POSITIVELY.
MEDICAL FACIALSMedical-level microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion leaves the skin soft and renewed with more even pigmentation, increased tone and a healthy youthful glow. Excellent for both active acne and acne scarring, this treatment can also reduce sun damage and decrease hyperpigmentation and discoloration. Microdermabrasion can be performed on any area of the face or body. New collagen production will result, providing both immediate and lasting results.
Chemical Peels: Chemical peels have been used for over 100 years to create an even and controlled shedding of damaged skin cells. Each year thousands of these treatments are performed in the United States. A chemical peel is applied to the skin to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the production of new skin cells. It tightens the skin, reduces wrinkling, and restores a more youthful appearance.
Enzyme Facials: If you wan
Injectable Treatments (Dysport® and BOTOX® Cosmetic) Memories should be cherished, not worn. Make crow’s feet, worry wrinkles, laugh lines and neck bands vanish. Dysport ® and BOTOX® Cosmetic can also be used to create a more “open” appearance to the eyes, and a refreshed, unstressed look.
Restore a youthful appearance with an injection of this puriﬁed protein – a simple and safe procedure completed in just minutes. A consultation will help determine if this treatment is right for you.
Dermal Fillers Naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid found in the skin’s dermis is injected to make you beam beautifully. Dermal ﬁllers are an injectable treatment that smooths laugh lines and facial wrinkles by reviving your skins’ suppleness and ﬁlling creases and valleys.
This treatment can also be used to plump up the lips and smooth out scars and skin irregularities around the body. Your plastic surgeon will determine the dermal ﬁller best suited to your needs during your consultation. These include Restylane ®, Juvederm® and Perlane ®.
LASER & LIGHT TREATMENTSThe cost of laser and light treatments varies depending on a variety of factors including extent of the condition, location of the treatment area, the number of treatments in a package and other considerations. The safest approach is to set up a consultation in order to better determine the correct treatment for your needs and the associated fees.
ProLipoTM Laser Lipolysis – Premier Plastic Surgery is the ﬁrst plastic surgery practice in Western Pennsylvania offering ProLipoTM laser lipolysis. ProLipoTM represents the latest and most powerful technology in targeted fat removal. This minimally-invasive treatment liqueﬁes fat deposits to improve body contours and give your skin a smoother, tightened appearance. At Acqua Blu, your plastic surgeon has the most extensive experience with ProLipoTM in the country.
ProFractionalTM Laser Resurfacing – Fine lines, wrinkles, coarse texture, acne scars, uneven skin tone and traumatic scars are more treatable today than ever before, thanks to a new technology called ProFractionalTM Laser Resurfacing. The true advantage of the technology is the ability to achieve great results with minimal downtime. The computerized fractional erbium laser produces thousands of tiny microthermal treatment zones which penetrate deep into the dermis without affecting the surrounding skin. This allows for a wide range of treatment options to meet patients’ needs, with incredibly fast recovery. The ProFractionalTM is an ideal choice by itself, or paired with a MicroLaser PeelTM, for even more dramatic results.
MicroLaser PeelTM – Rough uneven texture, UV damage, age spots, mild to moderate wrinkles and lines, crow’s feet, wrinkling, and blotchiness can be dramatically improved and skin renewed with a MicroLaser PeelTM. Advances in laser science make it possible to perform “surface-repair” on delicate areas such as the face, neck, and décolletage.
A MicroLaser PeelTM is a perfect solution for individuals looking for dramatic and lasting results. A MicroLaser PeelTM removes the outer surface layers of the skin, revealing a new, fresher, healthier layer of skin. The beauty of this treatment is you, the patient, choose your intensity according to how much downtime you want to experience.
Eyes by Acqua Blu – Get the younger eyes you used to have with a phenomenal procedure that smooths, tightens and improves wrinkles in the eye area without surgery or major downtime.
Laser Eye Peel – The eyes are the “windows to the soul” and one of the ﬁrst areas to show the visible signs of facial aging. Usually by our 30’s we begin to see crow’s feet, wrinkles, puffy bags and dark circles. Acqua Blu’s Laser Eye Peel is a laser peel speciﬁcally focused on rejuvenating this delicate area with minimal downtime.
Laser Lip Peel – Those ﬁne lines around the mouth can add years to your visible appearance and cause lipstick to bleed. Whether caused by smoking or just years of puckering up, these wrinkles can be softened with a Laser Lip Peel. Through this advanced multilevel laser rejuvenation treatment, you can kiss those lip lines goodbye.
Sapphire Peel – Looking for beautiful, glowing skin? Revive and refresh sun damaged skin with an amazing beauty breakthrough that combines the beneﬁts of IPL/BBL with a MicroLaser PeelTM – ALL IN ONE treatment! The Sapphire Peel is a new generation treatment for healthy, radiant, younger-looking skin (face, neck or décolletage).
Arctic Blue PeelTM – Spa junkies addicted to the look and feel of their skin after a microdermabrasion treatment or chemical peel, love the Arctic Blue PeelTM. Receive the same effect as 5-10 microdermabrasion treatments with just one light laser peel. The Peel offers a light “surface-repair” and immediate improvement in skin’s texture, tone and appearance with minimal downtime. The Arctic Blue PeelTM is the perfect pickme-up for dull fatigued skin or as a laser touch-up treatment.
Pearl Treatment by Cutera® – The Pearl procedure resurfaces the skin to decrease wrinkles around the eyes, smoker’s lines, minimizes pores, pigmentation and scars with less recovery than other technologies to provide a pearl-like glow.
High Speed Laser Hair Reduction – Our laser is faster and more comfortable than other hair reduction lasers, can treat larger areas (such as the entire back), and can treat all skin types – including tanned skin. The unique “computer-guided” scanning system ensures that your skin is rapidly and evenly treated with highly protective skin cooling. This laser beam is placed in a pattern on your skin giving you a safe, fast, effective and gentle treatment. You may need to be treated anywhere from 3 to 5 times spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. A personalized regimen will be designed for you during your skin care consultation.
Skin Tightening (SkinTyte™/Titan®) Firm and tighten skin with a non-surgical, no-downtime treatment. Treatments uniformly heat tissue in the deeper layers of skin, stimulating new collagen production to take years off your appearance. Treatments are non-invasive, allowing individuals to immediately resume normal activities. A blended infrared light source reduces wrinkling and other signs of aging by stimulating new collagen production, which results in better-toned, youngerlooking skin. The treatment protects the epidermis though continuous contact cooling, while the infrared light heats the deeper layers. Multiple treatments are recommended for optimal results.
Laser Genesis by Cutera® – The procedure utilizes non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treat ﬁne lines, wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, diffuse redness and scars.
Photo Rejuvenation Therapy – Also known as facial rejuvenation, this technology uses broad band intense pulsed light (IPL/BBL) and is extremely effective in treating UV damage, age spots, freckling, irregular pigmentation, unwanted facial veins, rosacea, and overall skin aging. By promoting cell growth and enhancing collagen production, it leaves behind smoother, younger and more vibrant skin. In less than one hour, you can obtain more youthful and revitalized skin, with minimal risk and virtually no downtime.
PhotoDynamic treatment with Levulan (ALA) For patients with Actinic Keratoses (those rough, scaly skin patches caused by sun exposure that can sometimes progress into skin cancers), a drug called Levulan (ALA) is applied topically to absorb into fast growing epidermal cells. Next, a light source activates the Levulan ALA and targeted cells are destroyed. This exciting treatment removes precancerous lesions and leaves you with younger, smoother, healthier skin.
Blue Light PhotoDynamic Acne Treatment Levulan ALA is a newly emerging treatment for reducing acne. Tiny glands beneath the surface of the skin can become blocked and form a pimple. Levulan ALA combined with a light source, shrinks these glands and kills bacteria in your skin. The treatment is painless; you may experience redness similar to a mild sunburn up to 7 days after treatment. Two to four treatments may be required.
Spider Vein Laser Treatment Diminishing unsightly spider veins is possible with cosmetic laser treatments. Some of the leading causes of spider veins are heredity, aging, pregnancy, and hormonal changes. Small and medium sized spider veins can be successfully treated with cosmetic lasers. In an average of three treatments, unsightly veins can be reduced or eliminated.
eMatrix Treatment: An eMatrix treatment goes beyond fractional methods of skin resurfacing. The system utilizes Sublative RF™ – fractionated bi-polar radio frequency technology – to place the heat energy effectively into the dermis where it can produce signiﬁcant dermal impact with minimal epidermal disruption. FDA cleared for the treatment of acne scars, laxity, ﬁne lines/wrinkles, tone, texture, pore size reduction, brown and red pigmentation.
Laser Tattoo Removal: Acqua Blu utilizes the MedLite® C6 laser, a Q-Switched laser Nd: YAG laser that is considered the “gold –standard” in laser tattoo removal. With the supreme technology of the MedLite ® C6 almost all tattoo ink colors can be removed.
Laser Toenail Fungus Treatment: Millions of Americans suffer from toenail fungus. It can be a frustrating, embarrassing, and even painful problem. Prior treatments were limited to largely ineffective topical creams and harsh oral medications. However, now you can quickly, easily, and effectively treat toenail fungus at Acqua Blu Medical Spa.
NONSURGICAL FAT REDUCTIONCoolSculpting® Body Contouring Treatment: CoolSculpting is the safe, non-invasive way to reduce fat in common trouble areas that tend to be diet and exercise resistant.
Developed by Harvard scientists, the precisely controlled, FDA-cleared, patented procedure uses a cooling technology that targets subcutaneous fat cells by freezing them to the point of crystallization. Once crystallized, the cells are then eliminated from the body through the lymphatic system in a natural process. There is no damage to healthy tissue or skin cells. Also, because the procedure is non-invasive, there is no need for needles or anesthesia. Patients typically read, work on their laptops, listen to music, or relax during the procedure. Each session lasts one hour and therefore can easily be ﬁt into a lunch break. After treatment, patients typically ﬁnd it easy to return to everyday activities.
Most patients see a noticeable reduction of fat in the treatment area after one treatment although it may take more than one treatment to realize the full effects. Because the fat cells that are eliminated from CoolSculpting do not return, the results are lasting as long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained.
