Skincare and Skin Tightening: A Comprehensive List of Rejuvenation Treatments

As we turn the page and begin a new decade, here is what we are excited about at NuBody Concepts for 2020.

A New Licensed Aesthetician

At our Brentwood location, we now have a fully Licensed Aesthetician on our staff. Diane Novacek has served patients in the Nashville area since 2005, and we are thrilled that she joined our practice. There simply seems to be no skin that she doesn’t know how to treat. Whether it’s resurfacing, tightening, a peel, or scar revision – Diane always finds the perfect personalized treatment for you. This has earned her some of the most loyal patients in the industry. If you work in the Maryland Farms area, treat yourself to a lunchtime resurfacing session with Diane for just $80.

“Diane Novacek is the best aesthetician in town. She has treated my skin for years and I cannot imagine letting anyone else treat my skin. Diane is very well educated and understands my sensitive skin needs. She is simply amazing!!!”

Skin Tightening for Body and Face

With Dr. Peters joining our Germantown practice last fall, all of our plastic surgery services are now available at both our Nashville and Memphis locations. Dr. Peters has been a pioneer using Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) as a non-surgical alternative to tummy tucks and facelifts. He has treated over 200 patients with BodyTite and FaceTite since these technologies became available in the United States in 2017, and the results have been very positive.

In a RFAL procedure, your surgeon applies controlled heat to the affected areas with a hand-held device. Studies have shown that this can achieve a 35-45% skin contraction. This is great news if you find yourself caught between liposuction and a tummy tuck. With BodyTite, you can achieve a flatter tummy than with classic liposuction alone, but you don’t have to deal with the downtime and scarring of a tummy tuck. It’s also a great alternative for patients looking for a thigh or arm lift. And for neck and face there is FaceTite.

BodyTite and FaceTite are minimally-invasive procedures performed in both Brentwood and Germantown by our board-certified plastic surgeons – as part of our Aqualipo procedure, or standalone.

Below are our other skincare options. Please note that we use the Alastin product range for all our skincare treatments.

Microdermabrasion

We use the Dermasweep microdermabrasion system to treat sun damage, uneven skin tone, wrinkles & fine lines, hyperpigmentation, age spots, and acne scarring. It essentially sands away the outer layer of the skin. This exfoliation stimulates a renewal of the skin. Available: Brentwood only.

Microneedling

Safe for all skin types, microneedling is another great treatment to soften wrinkles and repair acne scars and other skin texture issues. Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, it stimulates the growth of collagen for smoother and younger skin. While microdermabrasion treats the surface of the skin, microneedling reaches the skin under the surfaceAvailable: Brentwood & Germantown.

Chemical Peels

Our Aesthetician uses a range of different peels that can be matched to your skin type. This includes medical grade peels. Peels are applied as a liquid to the skin to improve fine lines, large pores, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and scarring. It’s a comparable process to microdermabrasion, except that the process is chemical rather than physical. Available: Brentwood only.

Dermaplaning

Again, this treatment is not so different from microdermabrasion. It is also used to exfoliate the skin, but our aesthetician uses a fine, sharp blade instead of a device to shave off the top layer of the skin. Available: Brentwood only.

Scar Revsision

If you have any scars anywhere on your body, whether they are old or new, you’d be amazed to see what our aesthetician can do with them. She uses any combination of the above methods to reduce the visibility of scars, and to achieve a more even skin tone. Available: Brentwood & Germantown.

DOT Laser Skin Resurfacing

Our innovative DOT laser technology is another way to treat skin using laser energy. It achieves good results on sun spots and moderate to severe wrinkles brought on by aging. Its precision laser device removes the old skin layers and stimulates the skin to form new cells, and tightens the surface. Available: Brentwood only. 

Exilis Skin Tightening

From the eyelids to the knees, our skin tightening with Exilis is a non-invasive alternative to BodyTite and FaceTite (which are both minimally-invasive, meaning there is somedowntime). Exilis can be done at any time and has no recovery or downtime. Available: Brentwood only, performed by our Licensed Aesthetician Diane.

Please note that in addition to skincare, we also offer a wider range of injectables and fillers at both our Brentwood and Germantown locations. 

We hope that you’ve had an excellent start into the New Year. Perhaps you’ve already made a few resolutions. But one word of caution: Sometimes the pressure of New Year’s resolutions suggests that there is something wrong with us; that if we only had the willpower, we could fix it.

Here is a novel idea: There is nothing wrong with you, you are already perfect! We are here to help you feel that way too. Call us today to make a skincare appointment to help your skin feel amazing, or to schedule a consultation to explore your skin tightening options.
