The best way to permanently remove stubborn pockets of fat is by freezing away your fat with an innovative device called CoolSculpting by Allergan. CoolSculpting destroys fat by lowering the temperature until the fat cells crystallize and die while protecting the skin from injury. CoolSculpting is completely safe and has been used on over 5 million patients. CoolSculpting is FDA cleared for fat removal on the chin, arms, bra fat, abdomen, love handles, outer thighs, inner thighs, banana roll below the buttocks, and knees. An area of the body can be treated in 35 minutes for about $600 per area. Advanced Skin Fitness in Rockwall Texas has two machines so we can Coolsculpt both sides of the body at once. This is known as DualSculpting. With no downtime and no recovery, you will see full results in about 12 weeks. Liposuction what??
Advanced Skin Fitness pioneered the spread and acceptance of CoolSculpting in the Dallas metroplex. Read more about CoolSculpting at Advanced Skin Fitness here.
Clear + Brilliant
If you are looking for fast changes to your skin for large pores, discoloration, melasma, or texture issues Clear + Brilliant is the answer. Clear + Brilliant uses light laser resurfacing to gently smooth, brighten, and even out the color of the skin. The best part of a Clear and Brilliant treatment is there is relatively no downtime. The next day the skin feels rough like sandpaper and will exfoliate over the next 5 or so days but no one can see it. You can return to your normal activities. Only Clear + Brilliant offers something so gentle yet so effective.
Microneedling With (Or Without) Radio Frequency
Microneedling uses a series of cumulative hole puncture wounds in the skin to induce healing. It’s great for preventative anti-aging, acne scars especially for darker skin types, boosting elastin and collagen, stretch marks, large pores, rough texture, and more. Micro needling typically doesn’t have any recovery at all. Most people return to normal activities the following day with the possibility of light redness about like wind burn from the ski slopes. Micro needling can be performed with or without radio frequency. Adding radio frequency increases production of collagen. With radio frequency and puncture wounds we are actually stimulating two different types of collagen at two different depths. The results are amazing. We typically perform micro needling in a series of 3 to 6 sessions. More severe cases may require more than 6 sessions.
Think of HydraFacial as the modem micro dermabrasion that uses serums for exfoliating of the skin rather than crystals, diamond tips, or brushes. Hydra facial has 4 steps. First, we cleanse the skin using a serum spray and vacuum. Next there is a wash of glycolic and lactic acid offering the same results as a superficial chemical peel but without the peeling afterwards. Next there is a salicylic wash to soften the sebum in the pores and to gently remove clogged pores and blackheads. Finally, we infuse in antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and peptides to promote skin recovery and to supplement the skin with nutrients. We can also add on treatments such as kojic acid or collagen boosters and growth factors depending on the goals of the patient and the condition of the skin. Hydra facial is a treatment for both the young and old and can safely be used on any skin type with most almost any skin condition. We typically do two per month to rejuvenate the skin then switch to once every 1 -3 months. Hydra facials are very relaxing and can be utilized as often as possible. There is never any downtime or recovery with a hydra facial.
Advanced Skin Fitness in Rockwall uses Facial or dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm which are both natural hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers used to treat wrinkles from loss of volume. Restylane Refyne is commonly used to treat laugh lines or nasolabial fold while Restylane Defyne is often used for deeper nasolabial folds and cheeks because it is slightly thicker. Restylane Silk is FDA cleared for lines around the mouth and smoker’s lines and is a great product for lips and around the eyes. Our favorite Filler for around the eyes is the original Restylane-L because it’s so thin and we are able to mold it exactly where we want it in the tear troughs. We can also use Restylane-L anywhere on the face so it’s great if you need just a little around the eyes and maybe just a touch on the lips. Restylane Lyft is fantastic for cheeks and can give the impression of a facelift when used correctly to pull the face back up when it has fallen from volume lose. Belotero is another thin hyaluronic acid filler that works really well around the eyes. Whatever your need we have a filler that’s exactly right for you.
PRP for Skin or Vampire Facial
Platelet Rich Plasma is a component of our blood that contains growth factors. It’s used to rejuvenate the skin by making the skin think it has been injured and turning on the body’s cascade of healing. In turn these growth factors that are released during the procedure stimulate collagen production, reduce hyper-pigmentation, increase blood flow, improve the hydration of the skin, and can even act as a natural filler and increase volume. In other clinics PRP facials or Vampire Facials️. Vampire Facials or PRP facials can be combined with hyaluronic acid fillers, combined with micro needling, applied after laser resurfacing, or infused into the skin with DermaFrac. Platelet Rich Plasma treatments can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands, scalp, or anywhere on the body and is often used to improve the appearance of stretch marks. There is no recovery from a PRP treatment and it can be performed in about an hour. We recommend 2 – 3 treatments spaced about 6 weeks apart for optimal results. Platelets stay active for several months so it’s recommended to have maintenance treatments every 12 months. They can be safely performed as often as requested to see better results.
Prp for Hair
Platelet rich plasma or PRP can also be used to promote hair growth. It’s most effective for patients with thinning hair as opposed to patients with complete hair loss from the treatment area. Hair grafts are best for complete hair loss and we recommend www.armanimedical.com for hair restoration surgery. PRP is great for post chemotherapy patients as well as anyone noticing new hair loss. It’s best to use PRP before the hair loss progresses. Two to three treatments are usually recommended and a follow-up treatment each year. Topical hair loss treatments as well as Propecia may be recommended for male clients. The treatments are performed under local anesthesia and there is no discomfort during or following the procedure. Patients can return to normal activities immediately. This treatment is effective for hair loss for both men and women.
Women often feel cursed by the appearance of their hands as they grow older. While most women take dedicated care of their face and neck, often hands are neglected by comparison. The hands can sometimes look an entire decade older than the face and neck. We often forget sunblock on our hands and they receive more sun exposure because of driving with our hands on the steering wheel. Advanced Skin Fitness has a hand rejuvenation program for weathered, wrinkled, sun damaged, thin, bony hands often associated with aging. Using a customized combination of filler, DermaFrac with platelet rich plasma (PRP), photo facial, and Clear + Brilliant. With our customized treatment for each individual’s hands we will be able to plump the hands to hide veins and bone, smooth and tighten the texture of the skin, and remove brown spots and liver spots. We will leave your hands youthful and radiant allowing you to show off your hands with confidence.
Velashape 3 Cellulite Reduction
Velashape was the first treatment that received FDA clearance for the treatment for cellulite and later received FDA clearance for temporary circumferential reduction of the thighs. Advanced Skin Fitness was the first clinic in Texas to acquire Velashape in 2005 before they were even shipping in the US. We went to Canada for training and have offered the most effective treatment of cellulite in Dallas and Rockwall since. VelaShape 3 uses vacuum, massage, radio frequency energy, and infrared light to increase circulation, increase lymphatic drainage, and stimulate collagen and skin elasticity therefore reducing the appearance of stage 1
and stage 2 cellulite. As with any cellulite treatment the results are temporary and must be continued to maintain results. Treatments are painless and feel very much like a hot stone massage. Patients find it relaxing. There is no downtime. Our only recommendation is to exercise and drink plenty of water to increase lymphatic drainage during the treatment.
Ultherapy is the only non-surgical, non-invasive skin tightening device utilizing ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the face, neck and chest as well as offering an FDA cleared lifting of the brow or “brow lift”. Ultherapy achieves this by delivering energy directly to the deep layers of collagen without damaging the upper layers of the skin or the lower levels of fat. Micro injuries are created in the deep layers of collagen that no other heating devices such as Thermage or other radio frequency devices can reach. Typically only one treatment is required for satisfactory results. Results may take 3 to 6 months for full
improvement. Ultherapy is great for patients who are beginning to notice laxity or loose skin around the jowls, rings of loose skin around the neck, crepey skin on the chest, lines around the mouth and eyes, and drooping or hooded eyes. Ultherapy can be used by patients who are trying to avoid surgery or to maintain the results after receiving a surgical facelift, neck lift, brow lift or an eyelid blepharoplasty. Ultherapy is a comfortable treatment provided under local topical numbing cream with optional laughing gas or nitrous oxide to reduce anxiety. This is a perfect treatment for anyone from the mid-thirties and up to maintain collagen as an anti-aging treatment.
Blue LED Light for Acne
Blue light is used in aesthetics to kill bacteria and to reduce oil production. It is particularly effective for acne on the back and acne on the face as well as hormonal acne and acne teenagers struggle with during adolescence. The best part of blue light LED acne therapy is that it works and there are no possible complications or side effects. Treatments are about 30 minutes and are performed twice per week until the acne is under control. Thereafter the treatments are performed as needed but we usually like to perform two per month to keep the acne under control. Treatments are comfortable almost like a tanning bed and have no recovery at all.
Red LED Light Skin Rejuvenation
Red LED light is the easiest, most non-invasive way to increase collagen production in the skin for anti-aging effects as well healing of wounds and injuries. Red LED light is very effective for reducing inflammation in the skin so it’s particularly helpful for calming after treatments such as Clear + Brilliant, DermaFrac, micro needling, Pixel Laser resurfacing, or as a stand -alone treatment protocol. It’s also an inexpensive way to increase results for skin tightening and works really well as an add on to radio frequency skin tightening.
Despite the U.S. being one of the most prosperous countries in the world, the standard American diet, or “SAD” as it is appropriately abbreviated, is still lacking in many essential nutrients. When you add to that our stressful and hectic lifestyle, inadequate sleep, air travel, occasional over-indulgences in alcohol, and seasonal flu bugs that we can all succumb to; we have the perfect storm of fatigue, dehydration, gut dysfunction, and a weakened immune response.
Advanced Skin Fitness of Rockwall under the direction of Dr Holly Barko, MD offers an array of essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients to treat a variety of conditions such as dehydration, a weakened immune system, low energy and fatigue, stress, headaches, poor concentration, inflammation, low libido, metabolic fatigue, and even hangover relief. Examples of the large variety of nutrients we utilize with our IV infusion therapy at Advanced Skin Fitness in Rockwall are Ascorbic acid (vitamin C), Glutathione, Calcium gluconate, Dexpanthenol, antioxidants, Magnesium, NAD+, B complex vitamins, as well as various other products designed for the specific needs of the patient. By bypassing the GI system, IV therapy allows us to use the quickest most efficient route to deliver nutrients, hydration, and medications, helping you to feel better faster. Intravenous therapy at Advanced Skin Fitness is performed in a relaxing environment with comfortable seating providing a tranquil space even for those with needle-phobia.
Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Some of the nuts and bolts of anti-aging medicine are centered around restoring hormone levels to those of a more youthful person utilizing safe, natural bio-identical hormone replacement therapy or BHRT. Indeed, a lot of the physical signs of aging are due in part to our changing physiology and hormone levels as we get older. This changing physiology probably explains why so many of us just don’t feel as well at age 50 as we did in our 20’s.
While most people are aware of the “change of life” that women experience known as menopause, a lot of people don’t realize that men also undergo a decline in testosterone production with age or “andropause”. Not only that, but women will experience a climacteric syndrome usually beginning between the ages of 35 to 45, which can manifest with many symptoms including menstrual irregularities, sleep disturbances, worsening PMS, weight gain, and a gradual decrease in bone density. In men, testosterone deficiency can lead to a loss of libido, reduced muscle mass, bone loss, increased body fat, irritability, poor concentration, depression, and the overall desire to sit on the sofa and so nothing. At Advanced Skin Fitness, our physicians will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your hormone levels in order to establish the balance necessary for optimal wellness. We don’t just look at lab values, but also your symptoms and goals for treatment, to come up with an individualized plan utilizing bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to improve your health, vitality, and quality of life. Our goal is not just to get your levels in the acceptable range, but to the optimal range.
Radio Frequency Skin Tightening
Radio Frequency skin tightening uses energy to heat the temperature of the skin to a therapeutic temperate of roughly 43-44 degrees Celsius in order to turn on the production of collagen. It also helps to realign collagen fibers to restore elasticity resulting in great improvements of the skin for face, chin, neck, abdomen, arms, legs, or anywhere else on the body besides breast tissue. Multiple sessions are required to stimulate collagen and tightening of the skin. We are actually building collage with the procedure so the results will not wear off however aging cannot be stopped. Treatments 2-3 times per year after the initial series will maintain collagen and tightness. This procedure has absolutely no downtime and results can be seen after 2-3 sessions. Six or more sessions are typically recommended for visible results. At Advanced Skin Fitness we utilize the latest skin tightening technology from Alma vShape, Cutera Trusculpt3D, and Ultherapy.
Pixel Laser Resurfacing
Pixel laser resurfacing also known as fractional laser or Fraxel is a minimally invasive laser resurfacing procedure that is the next step up from Clear + Brilliant but not as aggressive as the gold standard laser resurfacing which is CO2 laser resurfacing. Pixel laser resurfacing which an Er:YAG (Erbium YAG) laser by Alma Lasers uses laser beams in the pattern of a grid. With multiple passes and multiple stacks in heavily scarred areas we can effectively resurface the skin completely after a series of multiple treatments with only about 5 to 7 days of downtime per treatment. Because fractional lasers only treat a fraction of the skin per treatment multiple treatments are required but the downtime is minimal compared to more aggressive procedure like CO2 laser resurfacing.
