We all know about Botox, facials, and chemical peels, but there are several cosmetic treatments you may not know about. Starting at age 20, our collagen production decreases by 1 percent each year, kickstarting the aging process. Whether it’s a double chin or loose jawline, Mona Dermatology offers treatments to slow the aging process and treat existing concerns. Take a peek at these seven treatment options to begin your skin and wellness journey.
Tech Neck and Neck Wrinkles
Are you guilty of staring down at your phone? We all are! This creates horizontal lines on the neck often referred to as “tech neck.” The stubborn wrinkles are difficult to prevent and treat and the Sofwave ultrasound technology can help.
“We often focus so much on our face but forget our neck, which can give away our age. Sofwave is a treatment that can be done at any age, starting even as young as your 20s or 30s, to stimulate collagen production and invest in maintaining the skin’s youthful health & appearance. Combined with Botox, this is a great way to prevent that Tech Neck.” —Dr. Mona
If you experience a sagging jawline or loose skin, a thread lift might be a treatment for you. Lifting builds collagen in order to fill wrinkles, improve skin texture, and redefine your lip line. NovaThreads are the dissolvable sutures used in the procedure and offer minimal downtime compared to a traditional facelift.
If you look in the mirror and the one thing you wish you could change is a double chin, opt for Kybella injections. The series of injections provides a defined profile by destroying fat cells and slowly transforming the face. During a consultation, face shape will be discussed in order to achieve the look you’re hoping for.
There are hundreds of products on the market promising results that are never achieved. However, PRP—or platelet-rich plasma—is a great option for thinning hair. The treatment is a natural solution due to the use of PRP, a substance drawn from a patient’s blood and processed down by centrifugation. Healing properties in the blood accelerate hair growth and results are usually noticed around the six-month mark. Another option is natural supplements like Nutrafol, a hair growth vitamin that provides nutrients for thicker, stronger hair.
Coolsculpting is a non-surgical fat burning solution and Mona Dermatology is the only office in Cincinnati that offers the Coolsculpting Elite, a more powerful update to the original technology. This treatment is for parts of the body that are resistant to results from diet and exercise, like stubborn “muffin top” and bra fat. Coolsculpting delivers controlled cooling to target fat cells underneath the skin that eventually crystallize and are processed through the body naturally.
Many women experience moderate to severe cellulite on the buttocks and thighs at some point in their life. Qwo is the only FDA-approved injectable for cellulite in the buttocks. The enzymes in Qwo target the fat structure under the skin and release fibrous bands, redistribute fat cells, and stimulate new collagen.
“As a woman, I understand how frustrating and disheartening seeing cellulite dimples can be. Exercise doesn’t help and creams and scrubs are generally ineffective. That is why I am so excited to be one of the first offices in our region to offer Qwo, a scientifically-backed injectable treatment that targets the cause of cellulite. Goodbye butt dimples!” —Dr. Mona
Urinary Incontinence and Vaginal Aging
Around 50 percent of post-menopausal women will experience symptoms of vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA). Many menopause side effects like hot flashes resolve over time, but VVA symptoms often become worse. FemTouch is a non-invasive, painless, and non-hormonal procedure that improves vaginal health and urinary incontinence. The CO2 laser helps reduce vaginal pain, dryness, irritation, and has a decreased risk of infection.
