Tampa Bay Cosmetic Specialist Embraces NovaThreads® for Nonsurgical Facial Rejuvenation

Dr. Jeffrey Hunt discusses the benefits of NovaThreads for nonsurgical facial rejuvenation.

Dr. Jeffrey Hunt of Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay explains the benefits of innovative NovaThreads® for achieving youthful lift in areas of the face and neck.

Tampa Bay, FL – The recent FDA-approval of NovaThreads® has introduced both doctors and patients to an effective new option for non-surgical facial rejuvenation, explains Tampa cosmetic specialist Jeffrey A. Hunt, DO. As a physician offering a wide range of both non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic treatments at his practice, Dr. Hunt believes that NovaThreads® stands out as a worthwhile choice for many men and women who are looking to reduce the appearance of skin laxity. He says NovaThreads® is unique in that it can provide a customizable, physical lift to drooping skin along the neck and in several areas of the face.

With NovaThreads®, Dr. Hunt is able to control the placement, direction, and tension of the lift to deliver optimal results typically lasting between 18 and 24 months. Common cosmetic improvements he is able to achieve with NovaThreads® include:

  • Restoring youthful elevation to the cheeks and mid-face
  • Providing lift and support for a drooping brow line
  • Smoothing jowls to define the jawline
  • Lifting excess skin along the neck and below the chin
  • Diminishing the prominence of nasolabial folds

One of the greatest benefits of NovaThreads® is that they can often be placed virtually painlessly using only topical anesthetic to numb the skin, adds Dr. Hunt. When asked to describe the procedure, he explains that different varieties of NovaThreads®, which are uniquely designed to achieve a range of cosmetic effects, are carefully inserted below the skin and looped in a “U” shape to apply a very specific degree of lift and tension to the treatment area. He goes on to illustrate that beneath the skin, NovaThreads® works to stimulates natural collagen production to hold the improvements in place as the threads are resorbed.

Dr. Hunt says the versatility and natural-looking results that NovaThreads® can provide make it a popular treatment among his patients. He encourages men and women who desire some of the effects of a facelift or neck lift, but are unwilling to undergo surgery, to consider NovaThreads® as a viable alternative treatment. He recommends that those interested in NovaThreads® follow through with a consultation to determine if the procedure is right for them.

Relieve TMJ Disorder Symptoms With BOTOX® Injections

shutterstock_93545170Jaw popping, grinding, and clicking: these are common symptoms associated with TMJ Disorder, a condition that may affect as many as 10 million Americans. TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint and refers to the anatomical hinge that is responsible for the mouth’s ability to open and close. In some cases, this joint and the surrounding muscles can become dysfunctional and cause pain and discomfort, including serious headaches and migraines. There are many options for treating TMJ Disorder, but currently there is no cure. One of the best ways to manage the condition effectively and for the long term is with BOTOX® injections.

An injectable normally associated with the preservation of a youthful appearance, BOTOX® Cosmetic has several uses outside of aesthetic enhancement. The neurotoxin that makes up the formula is designed to limit the movement of overactive muscles. When administered to the muscles working alongside the TMJ, BOTOX® injections can help reduce involuntary contractions that often lead to grinding and clenching, as well as many other unwanted effects, without the need to wear an oral appliance every night as with some other popular treatments.

We will develop a customized treatment plan that may include a series of BOTOX® injections around the jaw to treat the masseter muscles. BOTOX® injections will typically provide relief for up to four months, after which you’ll be advised to return for follow up treatment to maintain the effects. With regular injections, BOTOX® Cosmetic can often help train your muscles to relax over time.

If you have additional questions about BOTOX® injections for TMJ Disorder, or if you wish to schedule a consultation, please contact us today.

Fraxel® Laser Skin Resurfacing

ResurFX® is a fractionalized erbium laser that goes as deep as CO2 laser but it is nonablative, which means it bypasses your epidermis, your outer layer of skin and goes deep dermis and remodels from the inside out. Basically what it is doing is putting half a million laser spots on the face. It treats sun spots, age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles and boosts collagen, even remodels acne scars. With minimal downtime, people look lightly red like a sunburn for about three days. You will have a little bit of swelling around the eyes mainly but otherwise normal routine. We always tell everybody to treat your face like a sunburn for a few days, lots of moisturizer, lots of sunblock and you can treat every two weeks. Since ResurFX is a fractionalized erbium laser, it is only remodeling your deep dermis 20% at a time, hence a fractionalized laser, so it does take four treatments to remodel 100% of the deep dermis.
