AESTHETIC NONSURGICAL PROCEDURES

Injectable Fillers
Injectable fillers are excellent alternatives to plastic surgery used to reduce or eliminate facial wrinkles and folds. They are also commonly used at our clinic for lip augmentation to produce fuller, sexier lips. Injectable fillers are made from a safe, biodegradable, non-animal, non-human synthetic substance that is injected directly into the area to be treated through a tiny needle. To experience the benefit of a plastic surgery alternative and to learn more about our available services, contact our office in Moline, Illinois today.

 

 

Chemical Peels

Time takes its toll on everyone’s skin. Age, sun exposure, and acne can leave skin, especially on the face, wrinkled, discolored, and scarred. A chemical peel is a plastic surgery alternative used to reduce these effects by applying a chemical solution to remove the damaged outer layers of skin. This alternative plastic surgery treatment has proven to be effective in smoothing and improving overall facial skin texture for many patients.* It is also helpful for eliminating pre-cancerous skin growths, softening scars, and even controlling acne. There are several types of chemical peels, from mild to deep peels, each of which achieves different results. If you would like to learn more about chemical peels, a plastic surgery alternative for more youthful skin, please contact us today.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

For more than a decade, patients around the world have been enjoying the benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic, a plastic surgery alternative for younger looking skin. BOTOX® Cosmetic remains one of the most popular injectables available at our office. By temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles, BOTOX® Cosmetic effectively and instantly reduces or eliminates unwanted facial lines, including frown lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet, without using more invasive plastic surgery techniques - please learn more about the benefits and risks of BOTOX® by visiting the website www.botox.com. By blocking the nerve impulses that cause the muscles to contract, BOTOX® Cosmetic causes the muscles to remain relaxed for several months following treatment. Treatments may be repeated as necessary to maintain younger, smoother skin for many patients.* For more information on this and other plastic surgery alternatives, contact our Illinois clinic today.


 

 

Sclerotherapy
Sclerotherapy treats small veins, usually in the lower extremities. These often unwanted vein clusters are called spider veins. They do not serve a purpose and can be safely removed without many side effects, depending on the patient. To do so, a solution is injected into the affected area, which stops the blood flow to the vessels, causing them to fade and eventually disappear. This relatively simple process takes from 15 to 45 minutes and can be repeated as necessary. To learn more about the advantages of sclerotherapy, schedule a consultation today.To learn more about these skin care treatments and other plastic surgery alternatives for a healthier looking appearance, schedule a consultation with Dr. Aric J. Eckhardt today at our Illinois clinic, by filling out our short online contact form or calling us directly at (866) 625-0881.

Say goodbye to stubborn fat with coolsculpting®, available at Dr. Eckhardt MD, FACS and Reflections Medical Spa in Moline, Illinois.

 

CoolSculpting® is a nonsurgical treatment that removes stubborn fat using a "freezing" method. This fat-freezing method is FDA approved and has no downtime. With proven results, coolsculpting® is a great option for removing stubborn fat that is not affected by even the strictest diet and hardest exercise routine. Using CoolSculpting provides noticeable and lasting results for most patients.*

 

How does it work?

The science behind CoolSculpting is Cryolipolysis® - a process that targets and freezes specific fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue or the skin. When you’re treated with Coolsculpting, your doctor will target the specific areas where you want to reduce fat. During the procedure, targeted fat cells are frozen. Those dead cells are eventually processed naturally by your body and eliminated, which produces long-lasting and normally permanent results.* You can learn more about how CoolSculpting works on their website.

 

As with any procedure, both surgical and nonsurgical, it is important to discuss your medical history with your doctor and to explore important safety information.
