Body Sculpting & Enhancing Procedures
Body contouring and tightening treatments are available in our office in Arroyo Grande as well. Such treatments generally target cellulite and tighten the skin on the entire body depending on the procedure used. Coolsculpting for instance uses a cool gel applicator to freeze and eliminate fat cells. Venus Freee uses radio frequency and electromagnetic fields to heat the skin to encourage collagen production. Venus Freeze can treat the abdomen, neck, chin, cheeks, jowls, arms and lip lines. It is an anti-aging remedy.
Skin Cancer Detection and Timely Treatment
Skin cancer starts with the growth of a tumor. Sometimes benign growths such as moles or other skin growths can be initially non-deadly; however, they can still evolve and turn into cancerous tumors. Skin cancer can develop and evolve rapidly if not detected or diagnosed. Individuals with increased sun exposure over their lifetime may be at increased risk for developing skin cancer. We highly recommend against the use of tanning beds because of the dangers of UV radiation. SPF protection and limited sun exposure are advised.
