The Revolutionary EuroThread Lift

For a natural-looking lift, consider EuroThreads! 

EuroThreads are minimally invasive.

These FDA-approved threads are thin, flexible, and absorbable. They are injected with a cannula and require no incisions.  Over time, collagen grows around the thread to provide skin with more support and volume. The threads dissolves in four to six months, while the collage remains. Results last 18 months to two years.

EuroThreads lift and tighten skin on the face, brow, and neck.

Threads also smooth and tighten skin around the mouth, chin, and under eye areas.

There is little to no down time!

While you may experience some swelling or bruising, these should dissipate in about seven days. We recommend taking the usul preemptive and post-treatment measures. Avoid taking ibuprofen, fish oils, and/or other supplements that may contribute to bruising. Arnica (topical cream and tablets) and bromelain (tablets) are natural supplements to help minimize and dissipate bruising.

Another advantage to EuroThreads is the ability to treat gradually.

Unlike surgery, you don’t have to do everything at one time. For example, your first concern might be sagging in the cheeks. You can  choose to treat that area with lifting threads first and see how you like the results. At later time, you may decide you’d like to add some threads around the mouth and chin to smooth the skin in that area. It’s up to you!

Ninety Seven percent (97%) of patients treated see immediate results!

FX CO2 Laser Resurfacing at Rhoad to Beauty

The “Total FX” is among the most frequent non-invasive cosmetic treatments performed by Dr. Deirdre Rhoad, Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon.

What does the FX CO2 Laser do?

The FX CO2 laser is the gold standard in skin resurfacing.  The minimally-invasive application delivers powerful results with less down-time than that of traditional lasers or surgical procedures, such as a face lift.

FX CO2 laser skin resurfacing can improve facial flaws, including but not limited to:

  • Fine lines or wrinkles around eyes, forehead, and mouth
  • Scars from acne or chickenpox
  • Aged or sun-damaged skin

The treatment projects small beams of laser-strenght light into the skin. The ablative effect jump starts and accelerates the body’s natural collagen production.

What treatments does Dr. Rhoad perform with the CO2 laser?

Dr. Rhoad performs both the Active FX and the Total FX. The difference between these options is the intensity, or depth, of treatment. Typically, these treatments are applied to the face, neck and/or chest areas. The Scar FX treatment can be performed on targeted areas of the face or body, as appropriate. Limited area treatment is also available, such as areas around the eyes or mouth.

What is the down-time?

The downtime following laser resurfacing is ten to fourteen days. During the first week, treated skin is red and ablated. The patient will want to remain indoors. After this initial recovery phase, the patient may have residual redness for some weeks. However, this can be camouflaged with mineral makeup. Sun exposure must be avoided for a full six weeks following treatment.

What is the cost?

The price for the FX CO2 laser resurfacing treatment for the face, as an in-office procedure, ranges from $3950 (Active FX) to $4950 (Total FX).  An additional area such as the neck, chest, or hands are $500 dollars each. (Both hands are considered to be one area.)

What are the results?

You can expect a dramatically smoother, fuller, and more youthful appearance. Patients who have received the FX CO2 laser treatment will see immediate improvements with fewer wrinkles, less pigmentation, and smoother skin texture. Because the treatment stimulates collage, it promotes tightening of the skin over time. The treatment also significantly improves acne scarring. You will look great in less than a month. You’ll look even better in six months!

How long will it last?

With proper skin care, the effects of the CO2 laser resurfacing can last eight to 10 years.

What is an IPL Photofacial?

Intense-pulsed light (IPL) treatments, also known as photofacials, can lessen brown spots, reduce visible capillaries, and calm rosacea. They also help reduce acne outbreaks and tighten pores. For best results, aestheticians recommend a series of three to five treatments at three week intervals.
