Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, liposculpture suction, lipectomy, or lipo, is a type of cosmetic surgery that breaks up and “sucks” fat from the body.

It is often used on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin, upper and backs of the arms, calves, and back.

The fat is removed through a hollow instrument, known as a cannula. This is inserted under the skin. A powerful, high-pressure vacuum is applied to the cannula.

Liposuction is the most common cosmetic operation in the United States. More than 300,000 procedures are carried out in the United States each year.

Also called Collagen Induction therapy. This is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars, and the improvement of the skin’s texture, tone and color. The automated pen creates controlled micro injuries in the skin in order to create new collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process creates a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles. At Apex Medical Spa we include in our Micro-Needle procedure, an amazing high level of natural growth factors that promotes skin regeneration, repair and healing. The treatment is about 45 minutes and feels similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. On average, patients experience redness for 2-4 days, similar to a sunburn. Patients will notice immediate glow and visible changes develop over the course of several weeks. Schedule your consultation today to learn more about customizing this for your personal needs and benefits.

 

 

stretch marks

Stretch marks are common features that appear when your skin is suddenly stretched. They look like narrow, long lines, stripes, or streaks across your skin. Women are especially affected by stretch marks more than men, and they are often found on hips, thighs, upper arms, lower back, breasts or stomach.

Before stretch marks actually completely form, the skin can feel irritated or itchy. It also begins to look thin and pink. They then begin to form wrinkly, raised streaks which change color over time to a more silvery shade.
