To quote Dr. Steven Sorr: “Aesthetic Medicine delivers solutions beyond classic dermatology so patients can move past old flaws — to feel beautiful, sexy and confident with themselves.” Another very important thing to add: it’s not cosmetic surgery! Just as we approach all aspects of your health, our Medical Aesthetics treatments rely on non-invasive, non-surgical solutions for improving your appearance.
At the same time, we approach your care in the way that Dr. Sorr has defined his whole practice: We consider your overall health – while avoiding unnecessary visits. Our goal is to help you bring out your natural best while employing the best regenerative and restorative techniques.
Let’s take a look at the various ways our team at Source of Health can help you feel more confident about your appearance with regenerative and medical aesthetics treatments.
Laser Technology and Appearance
Laser technology has added fantastic treatments to the world of medical aesthetics. By delivering energy at a specific wavelength of light to the skin, we can boost collagen and cellular renewal, remove pigmentation “sun spots” or reduce hair growth.
Laser Therapy helps us minimize scars, stretch marks, reduce melasma, and more. How it accomplishes this wide range of benefits is another example of the regenerative capabilities of our bodies. When pulses of laser light contact dermal layers, they create a slight injury – which then boosts cell rejuvenation and renewal. The results can include a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and an overall refreshed look. Procedures like laser skin tightening utilize this cycle of irritation and plumping to boost collagen and help improve the tautness of sagging skin.
As with all our procedures, we first sit down with each patient to thoroughly review your case, determining where we can help you reach optimized health.
Our clinic also offers Laser Hair Removal, a painless procedure that creates lasting results. Passing the focused light beam directly to hair follicles stops or reduces hair growth in the treated areas. It’s easy, can be completed over a series of sessions, and can reduce hair growth by 90%.
Another Light-Based Technology we use is Intense Pulsed Light – IPL Photo Facials. This powerful skin revitalizing treatment reduces and clears pigmentation in your skin’s second layer: the dermis. Examples of what this advanced technology treats are freckles, broken blood vessels, age spots, and more. As their pigmentation is broken down and clears, our clients can see results in as few as 3-5 sessions.
Plasma Pen Therapy
Another one of the hottest treatments available right now is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure that uses the Plasma Pen. As a pioneer in Rejuvenating Aesthetics for our area, Dr. Steven Sorr is a uniquely qualified and highly trained Plasma Pen therapy provider.
This in-office procedure uses a thermal effect on the skin’s surface to boost collagen production – with visible results after only one treatment. This procedure can be used in various areas of the body – not just the face. Even hands, feet, and saggy arm skin can receive Plasma Pen treatments. Plasma pen is best known as the “non-surgical eyelid lift: “Bleph” for short.
You may have seen this treatment in the news, as celebrities and others have begun to pick it up. Collagen stimulation is highly sought after for its anti-aging and stimulating effects. Although the procedure’s effects can look a bit dramatic for the first week, creating what Dr. Sorr calls a “Stylish spotted eyeshadow look” as it heals, the results last over 3 years! Not bad for an office treatment!
Our light and heat-based therapies aren’t the only effective medical aesthetics we offer at Source of Health. We also address the need for healthy and glowing skin with dermaplane services, facials, chemical peels, and skincare routines for maintaining your best look.
These are all highly popular services that we will customize to your skin and lifestyle. For example, our dermaplaning treatments combine a skilled removal of fine peach fuzz and dead skin cells for a smooth face. The freshly revealed skin is ready for other product applications to speed rejuvenation – or just your makeup, for a more flawless finish!
Another exfoliation treatment, medical peels, are customized to each client. After a consultation, our clinic will review your goals, skin type, and condition to create both the right strength and frequency of peeling treatments. These relaxing treatments can be scheduled as needed to help reduce issues such as fine lines, melasma, scars, and enlarged pores.
For regular and relaxing maintenance of your appearance, our facials are a must. As with all our services, a thorough review of your overall goals and conditions is performed. Your customized treatment will include a range of cleansing, exfoliation, and skin balancing masques, followed with an at-home treatment plan. Our medical-grade skincare routines help you achieve the best results without struggling to search for products elsewhere.
Microneedling and Injectables
Our wide range of aesthetic medicine services also includes Microneedling and Injectables. You’ve probably heard of both – but our approach to these treatments at Source of Health is designed to obtain maximum results with the most cutting edge applications.
In our office, microneedling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) is a process that uses a double FDA-cleared device called Exceed Microneedling to treat fine lines and acne scars for skin in a minimally invasive way. The microchannels that are created rejuvenate your skin as they stimulate your body’s collagen production. The most immediate result is a fabulous “glow,” but the changes continue at a deeper level.
At our clinic, we also combine the benefits of microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP contains growth factors that enhance results and create real changes for problems such as acne scars and fine lines. Both PRP and microneedling can be used in conjunction with other treatments for maximized benefits.
Injectable therapies have changed our views on appearance. In a world where we’re all expressing our feelings on our face, exposing ourselves to the sun, and aging, they’re a simple, safe, and popular solution to wrinkles and more. At Source of Health, Dr. Sorr is committed to offering the most updated treatments in a clinical environment, where our clients can schedule a Discovery Session. There, they can discuss which options are best for their goals. For best results, these rejuvenating visits are combined with a holistic approach to diet, skincare, lifestyle, and health.
Hyaluronic or dermal fillers are used to plump and fill tissues that have lost volume and to diminish facial lines. Source of Health uses both Restylane and the Prollenium Versa line for natural results. Dermal fillers potentially last from 6 months to a year, with the initial treatment determining how well your body retains the filler.
Biostimulants like Sculptra or Radiesse are also part of our procedures. Rather than adding fillers, these injectables create collagen and elastin at a deeper level – right above the bone. They stimulate fibroblast cells to help replace the volume lost from aging – and can be used all over the body. The results, as you would expect from our clinic, are natural in appearance.
Botox – or neuromodulator treatments can create incredible results as they help with issues like crows feet, forehead wrinkles, and even TMJ. Dr. Sorr uses the Dysport brand to create longer-lasting muscle relaxant effects. These are small injections administered in our clinic to the problem area, where they will soften and reduce motion in the surrounding area. As with all our patient procedures, we encourage each client to explore maximized results with other changes in their life, including a skincare routine.
So, to review: Aesthetic Medicine is the use of non-surgical solutions to enhance your appearance and skin health – and it’s not cosmetic surgery! Your face is a visible way that you communicate with the world – and that’s important. When someone achieves an unmistakable radiant glow inside and out, they and everyone else notices it — that’s the true power of beauty. It’s no surprise that we consider our a crucial part of total patient care at Source Of Health! Maintenance and restoration of your body and looks are vital to your overall well being and sense of joy and confidence.
