Medical Cosmetics–Look your BEST!
Medical advances have not only increased the human lifespan, but have helped people enjoy a better quality of life as they age. Now that people stay active, fit, and energetic as they grow older, they want, more than ever, to remain attractive and appear youthful. Rapid strides have been made in medical aesthetics, also known as medical skin care treatment, to help individuals improve their appearance without invasive surgical procedures or, at times, to maintain their improved appearance after cosmetic surgery.
At Dedicated to Healing Medical Group, we focus on helping to revitalize your skin, often a step toward increasing your sense of self-esteem and social confidence. We use a variety of the most up-to-date products and procedures to help you in your quest to increase your physical appeal and to feel content and attractive in your own skin.

Microneedle therapy is a new procedure designed to stimulate the body’s production of collagen and elastin, natural substances that work to lift, tighten, and rejuvenate the skin. After cleaning and numbing the skin, we apply a collagen-stimulating product. Then, a small disposable hand held roller is used to pierce the skin, making it more receptive to absorption and causing it to heal more rapidly. After the treatment, a soothing mask is used to protect and hydrate the skin.
Microneedle therapy, also known as collagen induction therapy, is effective as an anti-aging procedure because it:
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Minimizes pores
- Helps to erase stretch marks and surgical and acne scars.
- Stabilizes pigment
- Controls cellulite
- Restores and revitalizes hair
Microneedle therapy is successfully used on all areas of the scalp, face, and body, even on the fragile skin around the neck, mouth, and eyes. It also has the advantage of working effectively on all types and shades of skin.

How long does microneedle therapy take to work?
Recovery from microneedle therapy only takes a few days and visible improvement in skin condition is visible as early as 4 to 6 weeks after treatment. Microneedling, with its high rate of safety and success, is often combined with other medical skin treatments. Collagen induction typically produces maximal skin tightening and rejuvenation within 3 to 6 months after a series of treatment sessions.
BOTOX®, one of the staples of medical aesthetics, has been FDA-approved for cosmetic use since 2002. A Botox treatment involves the administration of fine-needle injections into carefully targeted muscles on the face. The procedure takes only about 10 minutes and can produce substantial improvement in the appearance of facial skin, often making patients appear as much as 10 years younger than their chronological age. A prescription medication, also used for other medical purposes, Botox is renowned for improving facial appearance by relaxing muscles and keeping them from contracting. Botox is an extremely effective treatment for:
- Forehead wrinkles
- Crow’s feet (around the eyes)
- Frown lines
- Lip and chin lines
- Lines around the neck and at the corners of the mouth
Patients who undergo Botox treatments report only minimal discomfort; no anesthesia is required. Improved appearance is usually fully visible after 3 to 7 days. Patients are advised to avoid alcohol for at least a week before the procedure; aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications should also be avoided for 2 weeks prior to Botox injections to lessen the risk of bruising. The pleasing results of a Botox treatment are not permanent; gradually, lines and wrinkles will reappear, though often in a less severe form. The good news is that patients can undergo repeated Botox treatments over time.
Dedicated to Healing is always at the cutting-edge of medical aesthetic procedures. In addition to Botox, we also make use of a number of dermal fillers in an effort to remove some of the facial evidence of aging. Injected dermal fillers help to restore the youthful fullness of the face, fullness that has been diminished by the loss of subcutaneous fat that naturally occurs during the aging process. A dermal filler treatment, administered right in our office can:
- Greatly reduce smile lines and crow’s feet
- Plump thin lips
- Enhance shallow contours
- Soften facial wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of recessed scars
**PRP can be added to any derma filler session to enhance and extend the impact of your treatment ask during your consultation our our PRP facelift when exploring derma filler**
There are a great many products used as dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM® XC, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, and JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC, JUVÉDERM VOLLURE any of which may be used to rejuvenate your skin at Dedicated to Healing.
Individuals who are predisposed to wrinkle by heredity, or those who have damaged their skin by exposing themselves to excessive sunlight or smoking, may be particularly good candidates for dermal fillers, though anyone seeking more youthful skin can benefit. Like other medical aesthetic procedures, injecting dermal fillers involves only brief medical intervention — typically a 15-minute treatment. While patients should expect to experience some slight redness and swelling for a few days to up to a week after treatment, by the time 2 to 4 weeks have passed, they should be delighted by their rejuvenated appearance
