AquaFirmeXS is a medical facial treatment specially designed to help exfoliate and perfuse nutrients into the skin.
Some of the common skin issues that AquaFirme can address include dull and dehydrated skin, oily skin, dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles, poor skin texture and quality, acne, sun damage and pigmentation, skin laxity, and more.
AquaFirme delivers exceptional results because it tackles skin issues with a multi-pronged approach. It deep cleanses your skin, performs powerful exfoliation to brighten your complexion, nourishes and hydrates your skin, and oxygenates your skin to protect it and give it a healthy glow.
The result? An unparalleled skin rejuvenation with the healthiest, most vibrant skin you’ve ever had.
Aquafacial is an entirely different experience. During treatment, you will feel no pain–not even slight discomfort. It has been described as feeling like a cool paintbrush moving around your face. Also, there is no pain or irritation that lingers in the days that follow.
AquaFirmeXS can give an immediate natural glow and true radiance to the skin. However, a series of three treatments may be needed to achieve optimum results. The effects of each treatment will continue to improve.
An office visit for filler injection can take 30-60 minutes depending on whether you are known to the practice. Every office visit is accompanied by before and after pictures which take time. Your injector will need to plan and draw on the face to decide where filler should and should not be placed. The actual injection time is around 15 minutes. Extra time is devoted to pictures, planning and explaining after care instructions.
How long your filler will last is dependent upon what type of filler you use and where it is placed. Areas with a lot of movement, such as the lips, tend to loss volume quicker than the cheeks and jawline, for example. Radiesse has the longest staying power at a year or more (close to 18 months in many patients). Restylane and Juvaderm also last close to a year. Restylane and Juvaderm products are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Radiesse is different. It is calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) spheres suspended in a carrier gel. This increases in staying power and increases its stiffness. So it is ideal for cheeks, jawline and chin.

Depending on the product and the areas treated, you should be able to notice results immediately after receiving filler injections.
There is a serious, but thankfully rare, risk of the filler getting into a blood vessel. This is managed medically. There is a risk redness at the injection site, infection, acne-like skin eruptions, asymmetry, bleeding from the injection site, lumps, palpability of the filler under the surface of the skin, skin rash with itching, skin redness and, under- or over-correction of wrinkles.
SkinPen results have been graded based on the G.Lemperle Wrinkle Assessment Scale, the Clinician’s Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale (CGAIS), and the Subject Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale (GAIS). The research is clear.
Unlike some alternatives, SkinPen has been clinically proven to be effective for women and men with with all Fitzpatrick Skin Types I – VI. Likewise, unlike lasers or chemical peels that can damage skin over the long term, SkinPen treatments, when properly spaced and overseen by a physician, can be used for years.
Yes, by design. SkinPen’s patented – and single-use – sterile needle cartridge is built with safety in mind. SkinPen is also surrounded by a custom-designed BioSheath that acts as a barrier to prevent cross-contamination between procedures. That’s part of the reason SkinPen by Crown Aesthetics is the world’s first FDA-cleared micro-needling device. Learn more by reviewing our patient labeling document.
Since we are using your own blood cells for your treatment, there is no risk of an allergic reaction. You may experience some discomfort from the injection, but this will be reduced with numbing prior to treatment.
Bruising and swelling can occur after your treatment but should subside within 24-48 hours. Using ice and avoiding strenuous exercise can help reduce these side effects.
