Non-Surgical Treatments

Non-Surgical TreatmentsAesthetic surgery is only one tool in the quest for rejuvenation and maintenance of our beauty. Commonly, surgical procedures are not necessary to achieve the desired result but small office procedures with minimal or no downtime maybe best.
The skin is the outermost protective organ of our body and it is as such constantly exposed to environmental damage from the sun, air pollution, weather conditions and other minor trauma.

Additionally, internal stress factors have negative influence on our skin including poor nutrition, smoking, preexisting acne or other skin conditions. The facial skin can glow for its youth and good health or it can lack luster due to its grey complexion, spotty appearance and wrinkly lack of elasticity.

Medical Skin Care

Dr. Fechner will discuss with you the importance to initiate treatments to maintain and promote skin health. He will discuss with his patients an easy-to-understand approach to a skin care regimen that is both scientifically proven and manageable. Maintenance treatments by a professional aesthetician may be of benefit in the quest to beautiful skin.

Anti-Wrinkle Treatments

As we age, the skin changes in its overall composition, elasticity and complexion. Having lost its healthy glow, the skin may appear gray and mottled with bothersome brown spots. Commonly, the skin thins and allows small capillaries and fine wrinkles to arise. In addition, the deeper soft tissues sag and reveal deep creases (i.e., around the mouth and nose). Various treatments are available to address these aspects of aging.” Active-FX

Botox®

Certain wrinkles are the result of facial muscle movement – therefore sometimes referred to as dynamic lines and wrinkles. Commonly encountered on the forehead, between the brows and around the eyes, they can be successfully treated by relaxing the offending muscles. This must be done very carefully, so as to not interfere with the normal function of these muscles of animation which can lead to an unattractive mask-like look.

Skin Fillers

If wrinkles, lines and deep creases are the result of a change in the skin anatomy, then the injection of a gel-like filler substance can achieve improvements for these problems. Today, various filling substances are available, each of these products with its own characteristics. Together with his patients, Dr. Fechner chooses carefully the best treatment with particular attention to the individual’s specific needs. Get more information on Injectable Fillers.

Skin Resurfacing

Complexion problems, sun damage and fine lines are sometimes best treated by removing the outer layer of the skin and allowing smoother and healthier skin to emerge. This removal can be performed with the help of a chemical substance (peel), a mechanical sanding instrument (dermabrasion) or a light beam (laser).

Of course, each of these techniques (chemical peel, laser treatment, and dermabrasion) has its very characteristic advantages. A consultation with Dr. Fechner will help you decide what is best for your particular condition. Get more information on Skin Resurfacing.

Collagen Induction Therapy

A thick network of collagen fibers forms the backbone of healthy skin. Various skin conditions including acne scaring and wrinkle formation result from a change of this collagen network. This cutting-edge and minimal-invasive technique induces the natural production of a new collagen network. During the private consultation, Dr. Fechner will discuss if Collagen Induction Therapy is right for you. Get more information on Collagen Induction Therapy.
