We offer the latest and safest treatment options available. After your Comprehensive Skin Care Consultation, you will partner with your aesthetics nurse provider to decide the very best treatment options tailored to the needs of your skin health. We currently offer the following services:
Is a unique, rejuvenation technique in which a surgical blade is gently guided over the surface of the epidermis- the outermost layer of skin. This method of exfoliation gently and effectively removes the vellus hair from your face, while also removing dead skin cells that lie on the epidermal surface.
We proudly offer pca skin and skinmedica peels to our patients. Both pca skin and skinmedica peels are recognized as the gold standard in the industry for superficial peels as they are highly effective, while also minimally invasive.
Enzymes and Mask Treatments
Customized masks + cellular level exfoliation treatments are highly effective ways to target dehydration, dead skin build up, and are great for overall skin health. Masks reintroduce depleted vitamins to the skin, and provide a dewy finish and glow.
Extractions can be added to any service. Purging the pores of buildup (blackheads and whiteheads) is wonderful for skin health when performed safely and can prevent future break outs in the skin.
Tinting may be added to any service to provide aesthetic enhancement to the lash and brow areas.
Botulinum toxins are FDA-approved medications that are injected into the forehead, in between the eye brows, and crow’s feet areas to temporarily improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These medications are safe when they are injected with precision and into the appropriate muscle groups. To achieve optimal results Dr. Hobgood and his aesthetic nurse perform all injections in-office to ensure the best patient outcome.
Hyaluaronic acid dermal fillers are used to replace lost volume, fill in fine lines and wrinkles, and for aesthetic enhancement. Because formulations vary, you may want to set up a complimentary consultation to discuss the correct treatment option necessary to achieve your desired goals. We offer several dermal fillers, including JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, Restylane®, and RADIESSE®.
KYBELLA is an FDA-approved injectable product made from a patented blend of deoxycholic acid and organic ingredients designed to address excess fat deposits beneath the chin, which is frequently referred to as a “double chin” and known medically as submental fat.
LATISSE (bimatoprost opthamalic solution) is the only lash stimulating product on the market that is FDA approved. This medication is scientifically proven to increase the growth of thicker, longer, and darker eyelashes. It is available by prescription, and can be purchased safely through Hobgood Facial Plastic Surgery.
Chemical peels are designed and formulated to improve the overall texture, color, and appearance of the skin. As we age, our skin cell turnover slows down, and needs assistance to reach and maintain optimal levels for age management and allow our newest skin to shine. After application of a chemical peel solution, the skin sheds to reveal a new and rejuvenated layer. Chemical peels range in ingredients, strength, and depth.
Collagen Induction Therapy/Microneedling
As we age, our collagen appears differently within the structures of the skin causing the face to look flat and less voluminous. Microneedling was designed to help rejuvenate the skin and rearrange the way the collagen lies in the tissues. Results can also include an improvement in overall tone, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
Customizable laser treatments are available based on the specific needs of the patient. Our Alma Harmony XL Pro lasers are capable of resurfacing, treating pigmented lesions, skin tightening, as well as for the removal of unwanted hair and tattoos.
