Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center FAQ

Should I get an aesthetic treatment, and if so, which one?

As aesthetic providers, we get asked this question wherever we go. And the answer is simple, right? Of course you should! It’s well-deserved simple self-care. Aesthetic treatments in Traverse City, Petoskey, Naples, and Boca Grande at Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center are some of the best self-care investments. You can look refreshed and glowing without plastic surgery.

And when it comes to treatments, you don’t have to decide which one. At Cosmetic Skin and Laser Center in southwest Florida and northern Michigan we offer complimentary cosmetic treatment consults at every visit. We may combine Botox or filler injections, dermaplaning, Hydrafacials, or PRF microneedling or Morpheus8, and skin firming treatments like Forma in one visit.
 
Our Physician, Nurse Practitioners, Nurse Injectors, and Physician Associates work with our Master Estheticians to help address multiple concerns at the same time. We can fade age spots with IPL / BBL, smooth lip lines with skin boost and ThermiSmooth, and lift sagging skin with threads or precisely placed Voluma or Lyft fillers. And we can refer to best plastic surgeons in southwest Florida or top plastic surgeons in Michigan if surgery is necessary to meet your goals.
What are the most popular aesthetic treatments?

For us it’s not about the most popular treatment, it’s about your aesthetic goals and desired end results. The Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center “best of” prejuvenation treatments slow skin aging and prevent wrinkles with skincare, baby Botox, and collagen induction treatments. Over 30, we customize plans with you to maintain your youthful shape and glow.

Professionals in their 50s and 60s want to feel confident with their peers and look refreshed, not tired, so popular treatments are Morpheus8, Ultherapy, FaceTite, Botox, Dysport, and Sculptra. And 70s+ are elated with a special technique called skin boost to soften deeper lines, our exclusive Foundation Facial, and threadlifts. And for all ages we can thank Zoom video calls for a recent uptick in jawline contouring with our minimally invasive Laser Lift and FaceTite!

Will I look natural after Botox?

When thinking about starting an aesthetic treatment, it’s easy to have the one overdone friend of yours in the back of your mind (and if you’ve forgotten about her, your husband usually hasn’t). We’ve been injecting Botox and fillers in the Harbor Springs and Petoskey area since it was FDA approved for cosmetic purposes 20 years ago and are continually advancing our techniques. We inject Botox for hyperhidrosis, skin rejuvenation, brow lifts, neck lines, and wrinkles (and probably a few more).

Want to see natural Botox results? All of our providers and staff start Botox and fillers in their 20s for prejuvenation and we treat our patients into their 90s. Our providers are continually trained in the latest techniques to achieve natural results.

What’s popular in the aesthetic industry?

Aesthetic medicine has evolved from chemical peels and Botox to a multi-modality approach that addresses everything from uneven skin color to sagging and smoothing. This “Full Face Approach” ensures a balanced, beautiful outcome in multiple scenarios, whether it’s how your face looks in a virtual meeting or at an upcoming event.

Surgical facelifts and fat transfer are still performed of course but many patients are looking for easier ways to lift sagging skin and reduce wrinkles. Our nonsurgical facelift utilizing Sculptra and fillers for volume replacement, threads, and/or Laser Lift and FaceTite all continue to grow in popularity. Patients save plastic surgery visits for later.

Do you do mommy makeovers in Traverse City or Petoskey or Naples?

We see many postpartum women to treat pregnancy mask with ViPeels and medical skincare and tighten stomach skin after childbirth with Morpheus Body.

If women are trying to regain their shape after childbirth, some need tummy tucks after childbirth but many are good candidates for easy permanent fat reduction like Coolsculpting. Smartlipo is the quickest way to get rid of tummy fat.

At RegenCen, our regenerative medical center in the same location, we strengthen the pelvic floor after childbirth with VTone and rejuvenate the vagina after childbirth with MorpheusV, FormaV, and Aviva. Bladder leakage after pregnancy is common and treatable as well. Of course the first thing we usually see women for after pregnancy is Botox!

Is CSLC a medspa?

We pride ourselves on not being a medspa. Some medspas are good but most only offer a few treatments which may not be the best for the patient and rarely is there a physician on staff. What’s always made our approach at CSLC incomparable is our commitment to complimentary consultations at every visit to discuss your concerns before doing any treatments and our treatments are always growing and changing.

We are committed to offering the most advanced solutions to address your concerns. Our providers receive ongoing training to both develop their aesthetic eye as well as master the latest techniques, ensuring every patient leaves our office looking like the best version of themselves.

Is Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center medspa in Harbor Springs?

We are located 15 minutes from Harbor Springs in Petoskey, Michigan. We pride ourselves on being much more than a medspa. Most medspas offer a few popular treatments like Botox and lip injections which may not be the best for the patient and rarely is there a Physician on staff.

What are the best nonsurgical treatments for men?
Despite what you may think, Botox, Morpheus8 and cosmetic laser surgery aren’t just for women. In fact a 2018 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons showed that more than 1.3 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men in 2018, and that number is rising.
 
Cosmetic treatments for men are the same but the male facial assessment is different, as we want to maintain the masculine facial shape after fillers and male skin is generally tolerant of more assertive settings with cosmetic laser resurfacing, chemical peels, and FaceTite. The most popular treatments for men are listed below.
 

Botox

Botox is a quick, painless, and highly effective treatment to soften facial lines and wrinkles and lift sagging brows. It is a simple procedure and consistently the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatment for people of all ages to combat signs of aging.

Hair Restoration Treatments

Each year, millions of men struggle with hair loss. At RegenCen, our medical division we offer hair transplant alternatives to restore hair naturally. Our hair restoration program consists of PRF or PRP injections, topical prescription hair drops, and red light. We consistently see a 30-40% increase in hair with results that last about a year.

Laser Hair Removal

It is very common for men and women and transgenders to seek out laser hair removal to to reduce unwanted hair permanently. Laser hair removal in Petoskey, Naples, and Traverse City is offered at Cosmetic Skin and Laser Center. The most experienced laser hair removal providers in the area - we’ve been performing laser hair removal daily since 2001. With lasers (not IPL for hair removal which is substandard!), we permanently reduce hair on the chest, abdomen, neck and back, toes, arms, legs, face and groin.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure to fade lines, wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, rosacea, stretch marks, and signs of aging. Some lasers and Morpheus8 tighten loose skin, firm skin laxity, and smooth uneven texture.

This multi trick wonder may have a few days of downtime but the results are long lasting after one treatment which makes it a great cosmetic procedure for busy men.  Cosmetic laser treatments at Cosmetic Skin and Laser Center in Naples and northern Michigan are tailored to each patient, their skin type, and their desire results

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a nonsurgical cosmetic treatment that uses different acids to remove damaged top layers of skin to improve skin tone and texture and stimulate collagen growth. Chemical peels improve active acne,  wrinkles, fine lines, melasma, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, acne scarring and aged skin.

Chemical peels are customized with different acids including glycolic acid peels, salicylic acid peels, AHA peels, sensitive skin peels, Obagi Blue Peels and proprietary ViPeel. Chemical peel downtime varies from none to 1 week.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are injections that rebuild skin to correct deep creases and lines and smooth wrinkles. Dermal fillers also correct sagging cheek skin, under eye hollowing, thinning lips, and a weak jawline or chin. Dermal fillers instantly make you look younger without plastic surgery or recovery. Cosmetic Skin and Laser Center is top 25 filler injectors in the nation for the Galderma family of fillers which includes Kysse, Restylane, Lyft, Refyne, Define, and Sculptra. Our experienced southwest florida and northern Michigan injectors have been injecting the Juvederm family of fillers since they were released in 2002.

In just one visit, fillers smooth wrinkles, restore volume and fullness to the skin, correct hollows under the eyes, contour the cheeks and jawline, and restore aging hands. The filler procedure is quick and painless with our topical numbing ointment. A filler session takes 15 minutes to one hour. Dermal fillers last about a year and sometimes dermal fillers last two years.

Fat Reduction Procedures

Even with a healthy diet and daily exercise, most people struggle with stubborn areas of fat on the body with aging. Minimally invasive fat reduction treatments in our northern Michigan locations include Smartlipo, RF assisted liposuction, and Coolsculpting Elite. These FDA-cleared nonsurgical procedures  reduce unwanted pockets of fat almost anywhere on the body and under the chin permanently

CoolSculpting is a fat reduction procedure that eliminates fat cells permanently with cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is effective to target and freeze away fat cells, resulting in about a 20 percent reduction with each treatment. Coolsculpting treatments can be repeated every 4-6 weeks. Coolsculpting is commonly performed on the abdomen, bra fat, upper back, flanks, arms, male breasts and under the chin.

Laser assisted liposuction, or Smartlipo, is the best way to permanently eliminate multiple fat bulges and tighten skin simultaneously. Laser assisted liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure performed in Petoskey and Traverse City at Cosmetic Skin and Laser Center in office. This safe fat reduction procedure is performed with local anesthesia, Pronox and a mild narcotic. Laser liposuction dramatically smoothly reduces fat bulges by about 70%. Smartlipo works to reduce abdominal fat, love handles, gynecomastia, double chin on men and also works on saddle bags, arms and inner thighs. Men notice clothes fit better after liposuction.

Morpheus8

 
Men who want dramatic changes in skin texture and firming along the jawline without downtime opt for Morpheus8. This treatment can be done one time or in a series of 3 to turn back the clock a few years. Morpheus8 is a radiofrequency microneedling treatment that tightens and smooths skin at the same time. It can even be customized to reduce fat under the chin. Men who don’t want 5 days of downtime with laser resurfacing treatments often choose Morpheus8. Morpheus in Naples, Florida and northern Michigan is easy to book online after a complimentary consultation.
 
Cosmetic Skin and Laser Center was the top Morpheus provider in 2022 in the state of Michigan. Morpheus8 is a customizable treatment and offered by our same providers in Naples, Florida.
