Get Perfect Skin With Microneedling Services From Plastic Surgery Institute of Utah

Are you unhappy with the appearance of your skin? Do you ever feel that no matter what you do, you can’t seem to get rid of those pesky blemishes? If your answer is yes, microneedling may be the solution for you! Microneedling is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure that helps improve the appearance of your skin. At the Plastic Surgery Institute of Utah, we offer microneedling services that can help give you perfect skin!

What Is Microneedling and How Does It Work?

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that uses fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. This triggers the body’s natural healing process, which helps improve the skin’s appearance. Microneedling can help reduce wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and other blemishes.

The science behind microneedling is still being studied, but it’s thought that the body’s natural healing process helps to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are two proteins responsible for the skin’s youthful appearance.

Our bodies produce less collagen and elastin as we age, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. By stimulating the production of these proteins, microneedling can help improve the appearance of your skin!

What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?

There are many benefits to microneedling, including:

Reduced Wrinkles and Fine Lines

One of the primary benefits of microneedling is that it can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. If you are unhappy with how your skin looks because of these blemishes, microneedling can help!

Improved Skin Texture

Microneedling can also help improve the texture of your skin. If you have rough, uneven skin, microneedling can help smooth it out. This is because the procedure can help stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which can help improve the skin’s texture.

Reduced Acne Scars

If your acne scars make you feel self-conscious, microneedling can help! Another benefit is that the procedure can help reduce the appearance of acne scars as well as stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, improving the appearance of your skin.

With these benefits, it’s clear that microneedling should be your go-to option to improve your skin’s appearance!  So, what are you waiting for? Schedule your microneedling Midvale UT appointment today!

How Does the Microneedling Procedure Work?

The microneedling procedure is simple.

  1. First, your skin will be cleansed. This is a crucial step because it ensures that the area to be treated is clean and free of any debris or dirt.
  2. Next, a numbing cream will be applied to your skin. This helps to ensure that you’re comfortable during the procedure.
  3. Once your skin is numb, the microneedling device will be passed over your skin. This device has fine needles that create tiny punctures in the skin. The microneedling device will be passed over your skin multiple times to ensure that all areas are treated.
  4. Once the procedure is complete, a soothing serum will be applied to your skin. This helps to calm and soothe the skin.
  5. Finally, sunscreen will be applied to your skin. It is important to wear sunscreen after the procedure to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

JUVÉDERM® and Artefill® Dermal Fillers Can Accentuate Facial Features

As you grow older your skin naturally starts to lose some of its youthful tone and elasticity. The process of skin aging slows exfoliation and collagen stimulation in the deeper dermal layers, which leads to the development of fine lines and wrinkles on the face and other visible parts of the body. As it continues to progress your facial features might also start to soften and sag in certain places.

There are several different ways to address the noticeable appearance of skin aging. Dr. Kirk Moore and the staff at Plastic Surgery Institute of Utah can perform a basic assessment to determine which options can help meet your goals.

Our surgeon may recommend dermal filler injections for patients who want to enhance or restore key facial features without surgical intervention. JUVÉDERM® and Artefill® are popular and effective dermal filler substances that can be injected into the dermal layers to add volume and improve the appearance of a facial feature. The injections can often be performed in a single appointment, and do not require sedation.

Over time the dermal filler will be safely absorbed by your body causing the enhancement to gradually fade. At that point most patients will return to Plastic Surgery Institute of Utah for a second injection.

If you live in the area surrounding Midvale, Utah, and your facial features have softened with age, you should call 801-506-6380 to set up a consultation with Plastic Surgery Institute of Utah

NeoGraft ® Automated Hair Transplantation Can Help Address Hair Loss

When most people think about hair loss they immediately think about traditional male pattern baldness. However, this is not the only form of hair loss. Genetics and changes in hormones that occur with age can lead to the gradual loss of hair follicles for men as well as women.

As the follicle density on the head continues to decrease the individual often struggles with self-image and self-confidence issues. Some people will address these issues with temporary methods, such as wearing a hairpiece, frequently using a hat to cover up their head or attempting to experiment with retail level hair restoration products.

Here at Plastic Surgery Institute of Utah, located in Midvale, Utah, our cosmetic surgeon Dr. Kirk Moore can perform a NeoGraft® Automated Hair Transplantation to restore follicle density in specific areas.

The outpatient treatment process uses Follicular Unit Extraction to sample hair follicles from specific areas of the head and gently implant them into an area that has experienced significant hair loss.

The recovery time after the NeoGraft® treatment is typically fast and has fewer restrictions while providing you with a natural looking head of hair.

If you are a man or woman living in the area surrounding Midvale, Utah, and you have been struggling to deal with hair loss, you should call 801-506-6380 to set up your free consultation at Plastic Surgery Institute of Utah.

CoolSculpting® Is a Non-Surgical Method for Addressing Stubborn Fat Deposits

Dedicating yourself to improving your diet and making the effort to exercise regularly will certainly pay significant dividends with your overall health and appearance. However, many people who make significant improvements in their body composition still struggle with stubborn fat deposits.

Excess fat in the arms, specific areas of the abdomen, buttocks and lower back can be frustrating, which leaves the individual wanting to explore their options. Here at Plastic Surgery Institute of Utah in Midvale, Utah, our surgeon offers several different options for addressing stubborn areas of body fat. After a basic examination and consultation, Dr. Moore can help you choose the method that is right for you.

In many of these cases a CoolSculpting® treatment can help address a specific area without the use of injections of invasive surgery. The treatment process involves our surgeon mildly freezing targeted fat cells without traumatizing surrounding tissues.

Your body will naturally absorb and eliminate the affected fat cells to gradually improve the shape and size of the stubborn fat deposit. After the treatment you will be able to return to regular activities without any undue complications.

While one treatment will provide a notable change, many patients will opt for additional CoolSculpting® treatments to accomplish their desired result.

If you live in the area surrounding Midvale, Utah, and you are struggling to deal with stubborn fat deposits, you should call 801-506-6380 to set up your free consultation at Plastic Surgery Institute of Utah.

A Mommy Makeover Can Restore Much of Your Pre-Pregnancy Appearance

Bearing children can cause significant changes to your body as well as your lifestyle. Many women who have had one or more children will notice long-term increases in their body fat, sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin and other changes in their appearance.

Once you are done having children, you may want to consider various cosmetic procedures to address these issues to help restore the pre-pregnancy appearance of your body. During the consultation appointment, our doctor will be able to assess the nature of the imperfections you would like addressed to develop a strategy for achieving your goals.

A so-called mommy makeover can encompass a variety of treatments. The specific changes you would like may influence the number of outpatient appointments needed to achieve your goals.

With many of these cases, the patient is typically interested in making changes to the appearance of their breasts. Breast augmentation may be the preferred option for increasing the size of your breasts while also tightening the skin. A breast lift or breast reduction procedure might be the ideal choice if you would like to reduce the size of your breasts or simply heighten the profile of your bustline.

A buttock lift or buttock augmentation might be called for if your posterior has started to sag or lost its once full appearance. A gluteal lift is designed to edit the skin in the area to firm up its natural tone, while a gluteal augmentation involves inserting a special implant to increase fullness while also boosting your contours.

Many mommy makeover processes also include some form of liposuction or liposculpture to remove a modest amount of body fat or to improve the shape and contour of a stubborn area. If you have excess abdominal skin, you might also be interested in a tummy tuck.

A vaginal rejuvenation procedure can potentially address multiple factors. Also known as female genital cosmetic surgery it can encompass a labiaplasty, to reduce the size of the labia minor or labia major, which often includes a clitoral hood reduction. A monsplasty might be included in the vaginal rejuvenation process to reduce the general size of the mons pubis. A vaginoplasty might also be performed to tighten the vaginal tissues after childbirth.

Our doctor can help you understand your options based on your comfort level and personal preference.

If you are done having children and you are interested in restoring the pre-pregnancy appearance of your body, we invite you to give us a call to set up a consultation with our skilled team, and find out if a mommy-makeover is right for you.

Breast Cancer Screening Is Critical for Early Diagnosis

Performing a breast self-examination once each month plays an important role in catching any aberrations before they can develop into a more serious condition. While the self-exam is primarily intended to catch early signs of breast cancer, it can also help with the early detection of breast cysts and other medical conditions. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also recommend having a mammogram performed by a trained physician every year after the age of 40.

If you notice a lump, a change in texture or anything else abnormal with one or both of your breasts, you need to schedule a breast cancer screening as soon as possible. The diagnostic process may include a few important tests.

Our doctor might start with a clinical breast exam to express the area by hand, noting any lumps. Be sure to let us know about any other symptoms you are experiencing such as tenderness, fever, a change in the nipple, or swelling in any of the nearby lymph nodes. You should also note any family history for cancer.

If there is anything amiss, our doctor will likely need to perform a mammogram or breast MRI.
A mammogram is essentially a special type of soft tissue X-Ray. It is designed to note areas of abnormal tissue density, fluid accumulations and other anomalies in the breast tissues.

A breast MRI uses magnetic resonance to create a detailed image of the breast tissues. It is often performed in conjunction with a mammogram for women who are considered at high-risk for developing breast cancer.

In some of these cases, our doctor might also want to perform additional diagnostics such as drawing blood to test for specific protein markers associated with the presence of cancer. A direct biopsy might be needed to sample and examine suspicious areas of breast tissue.

Our doctor can help you understand the need for any other tests and answer your questions. If we find indicators for breast cancer our doctor will likely refer you to an oncologist or another specialist to further confirm the diagnosis and start the treatment process.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is here in the month of October, and it is an important reminder to women everywhere to check for any signs of breast cancer. Speak to your healthcare provider about your risks and the best screening plan for you. If you are reaching the age of 40, this is when you want to get your first annual mammogram. If you are in your twenties, be sure to start looking for any changes in your breasts.

With early detection, breast cancer treatment and survival rates are very high. If you have noticed anything out of the ordinary during your monthly breast self-exam, please reach out to our team to set up a breast cancer screening at our clinic. We are happy to help you get the care you need and deserve.

Want a More Appealing Bust Profile?

A woman’s natural endowments are often tied to genetics as well as her general body composition. A woman with a low percentage of body fat may have smaller breasts for her frame. Some women with small breasts or a bust profile that has changed with age and certain lifestyle factors may be dissatisfied with their current endowments.

If you feel this way, you should consider scheduling a breast augmentation consultation at our clinic. After capturing your vision for the improvement you would like made, as well as other factors such as body composition and your frame, we can explain your breast implant options.

Silicone breast implants have a long history dating back to their invention in 1962. The silicone material is essentially encased inside a soft plastic membrane and closely replicates the feeling of natural breast tissue.

In the decades since, breast augmentation materials and surgical techniques have continued to evolve. Today, saline-filled breast implants have also become very popular for women seeking to enlarge or improve the shape of their breasts. In fact, the Food and Drug Administration has approved saline breast implants for women over the age of 18 and women requiring breast reconstruction after a mastectomy.

The type and size of the implant might vary. Some can be placed pre-filled or filled during the breast augmentation surgery. In certain circumstances, a specially shaped breast implant membrane can be used to create a more appealing breast shape.

Round breast implants are generally available in three distinct profiles ranging from moderate to moderate-plus or high-profile. A teardrop shaped breast implant might be an appealing choice for a mature woman who wants to retain a natural shape for her age.

A smooth breast implant requires a small incision if you only want to make a modest change in the size of your breasts. Textured breast implants lay on the other end of the spectrum and have an almost sandpaper-like texture. They have a reputation for firmly adhering to the surrounding breast tissue. This can be helpful for reducing your risk of experiencing capsular contraction.

Our doctor can help you select the size and type of breast implant that is right for your goals and body type.

If you are unhappy with the size, shape or profile of your breasts, you should contact our experienced team to explore the breast augmentation options available through our practice. Start off the new year with look you desire!
