February Skincare Specials

Tag Archives: wrinkles

Happy Valentine’s Day! This month at Vinings Surgery Center, there are several sweet specials for you to enjoy yourself or give to someone you want to pamper.
Collagen Induction Therapy (regularly $150) and Sheer Berry Antioxidant Serum (regularly $39)
Only $129 (regularly $189)
Series of 3:  $299 (regular price $489) 
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), also known as micro-needling, is an excellent non-ablative treatment for various skin conditions such as fine lines and wrinkles, light scarring from acne and photodamage. CIT uses very fine needles to create a controlled injury underneath the skin’s surface enough to stimulate collagen/elastin production with minimal damage to the epidermis.  The resulting micro-channels made from the micro-needles allow topical gels and creams to be absorbed more effectively through the top layer of skin.  You also will take home a high-powered antioxidant blended with Resveratrol, fruit acids and peptides to quench the skin’s need for protection and free radical fighting power.
Matrix IR (for eyes, forehead or mouth) $99
Series of 3:  $265
The Matrix IR applicator uses a proprietary synergy of light and conducted Bi-Polar RF to create the deep thermal heating needed to shrink and generate new collagen while protecting the epidermis. Mild to moderate wrinkles are reduced, and the texture of your skin becomes more smooth and elastic. It is safe and effective for all skin types. Most patients notice improvement of wrinkles between two and three sessions. Some patients note improvement even after the first treatment.

$80 (regularly $160)
Lashurious is an effective alternative to prescription products. Lengthen and boost thin or damaged lashes. Improves and conditions your natural eyelashes for a fuller and more youthful lash line.

Dr. Colgrove and the staff at Vinings Surgery Center have an innovative new technology to offer patients who want to reduce wrinkles, tighten loose skin and contour problem areas of the body: ThermiRFTM. 

ThermiRFTM uses radiofrequency (RF) technology, which for more than 75 years has been safely used in cardiology, pain management, dermatology, plastic surgery and other medical specialities. This technology allows physicians to precisely locate an area for treatment, then apply a specific dose of controlled radiofrequency energy to a portion of the targeted area for wrinkle reduction, body contouring, lifting, relaxation of frown lines and skin tightening.

ThermiRFTM is the first aesthetic therapy that uses temperature control technology, which is a safer than laser and other RF technology currently being used. All procedures done with ThermiRFTM can be performed in the office setting and do not require any down time. Patients can have procedures done  during a lunch hour and return to work.

ThermiRFTM can be used to tighten small areas of adipose tissue (fat) deposits in areas including:

  • Frown reduction
  • Submental
  • Axillary fold
  • Arms (tricept area)
  • Abdomen (love handles)
  • Knees

The ThermiRFTM device is FDA-cleared and provides a minimally-invasive solution for tightening and fat reduction anywhere on the body. A tiny radio-frequency probe delivers the prescribed dose of safe RF energy through the non-insulated tip of the probe to heat the targeted loose tissue and fat cells. This is a very accurate method to selectively target the loose tissue and fat pockets results in controlled tissue reduction and tightening. Over time, the treated fat cells are drained via the lymphatic system and then excreted as urine and the lax tissues tighten.

The prescribed temperature is set by the clinician to ensure a comfortable yet effective treatment for each patient. The ThermiRFTM Platform controls the temperature of the handpiece tip that is in contact with the patient. The clinician can set the desired temperature and know that it is being delivered to the patient. Once the handpiece tip reaches the target temperature, a digital clock measures time. With precise temperature and time, the clinician can target and control the therapeutic dose. The system increases safety and delivers more reliable clinical outcomes.

There’s a new option out there (and, of course, here at Vinings Surgery Center) for looking more youthful, adding facial volume and reducing lines and wrinkles. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is an FDA-approved filler used to lift the mid-face with long-lasting results. It is the first and only filler approved for deep injection in the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss instantly.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC gives a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile for as long as two years. While JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, adds volume specifically to the cheek area.


  • It is the first and only hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area, resulting in a subtle lift. HA is a naturally occurring, hydrating substance found in your skin. As you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume.
  • It is clinically proven to last as long as two years with optimal treatment.
  • After 24 hours, you should be able to resume your normal activities.
  • Side effects are moderate and generally last two to four weeks. Common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration and itching.

ABOUT BOTOX: Recent research has proven that Botox Cosmetic lasts up to 4 months. Experience these remarkable results for yourself. For frown lines and crow’s feet, the treatment blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines.

The injection relaxes the muscles so they don’t contract. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected.

Treatment takes just about 5 minutes and no anesthesia is needed. Temporary bruising is the most common side effect. In some cases the toxin can migrate and cause temporary weakness of nearby muscles. In rare cases there can be a temporary drooping of an eyelid or facial asymmetry.

The risk of any side effect depends on the muscles injected. Because the effects of the procedure are completely reversible, all side effects are only temporary. Recovery is immediate, with minimal restrictions for four hours.

The lines that appear on our faces as we age are as unique as our individual personalities and lives. So, Vinings Surgery Center offers a filler that  tailors itself to the unique needs of your face to erase the lines you want to get rid of.

Belotero Balance® dermal filler has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. It’s designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct facial contours. By adapting to the individuality of your skin, it softens lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for smooth and natural results that are uniquely you. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above the lip line). A product of Merz Aesthetics, Belotero Balance® is made of a material called hyaluronic acid or HA, which naturally exists as a component of your skin. By binding to water, it fills in wrinkles and folds, allowing immediate and smooth correction.

The low humidity and blasting indoor heat during the cold winter  months can leave your skin feeling parched and looking less than radiant. With spring finally on its way, it’s time to get ready to bare those limbs and show a little more skin in the warmer days ahead.

Here are a few secrets from skincare expert Roseanne Warchola, medical esthetician at Vinings Surgery Center, to get your skin ready to shine under the sun!

  •  Exfoliate with beta  hydroxy acids a few times a week to loosen the dead cells that make skin look dry and scaly.
  • Immediately after cleansing and exfoliating, use a moisturizer with skin-quenching ingredients and antioxidants that protect skin cell membranes. Look for vitamins A, C and E as well as humectants like hyaluronic acid that will retain moisture and leave you with a dewy complexion.
  • Use sunscreen with SPF, either in your moisturizer or makeup, every day. UVB rays are getting more powerful and are more likely than ever to cause sunburn, so don’t forget to protect your skin, particularly between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
