Our Favorite Couples: Cosmetic Treatments for Skin and Body

We’re currently deep within the Valentine’s season—a perfect time to remember that great things often come in pairs! Cosmetic procedures are no exception. Here at Charlotte Plastic Surgery, we routinely hear from patients who have specific cosmetic goals in mind—and we tell them that there’s no one procedure that will help them completely achieve those goals. Instead, we recommend having a couple of different procedures at the same time, ensuring results that are more in line with the patient’s vision. In this post, we’re going to highlight some of our favorite pairings—cosmetic treatments for skin and body that just work well together, and often provide ideal results when used in tandem.

Perfect Pairings: The Best Cosmetic Treatments for Skin and Body

CoolSculpting + TransForm

Many of our clients come to Charlotte Plastic Surgery telling us they want to lose weight. To be more accurate, what they’re looking for is to have a firmer, tighter body—something that calls for both fat reduction and skin tightening.

We can recommend a powerful one-two punch to accomplish this dual goal—CoolSculpting followed by TransForm.

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical solution to get rid of stubborn fat, particularly in areas where fat tends to congregate—like the neck, chin, or gut. This FDA-cleared procedure literally freezes the fat cells, making it easy for the body to naturally process and eliminate this surplus flab.

Alastin’s TransForm body product, meanwhile, is actually made with CoolSculpting in mind; basically, it expedites the results and minimizes the appearance of loose skin or crepey skin texture.

CoolSculpting has been a big hit with our clients, and we’re excited to say that TransForm makes the results even better!

Kybella + Restorative Neck Complex

Different patients come to us hoping to make changes to varied parts of their bodies—and for many patients, the problem areas are the neck and chin. Whether it’s a “double chin” or loose flaps of skin on the neck, these areas can cause some folks to look and feel older than they actually are. Yet some of our best cosmetic treatments for skin and body can get rid of that double chin and that turkey neck—including the dynamic duo of Kybella and Restorative Neck Complex.

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable that’s specifically designed to moderate the appearance of “double chins.” It works by literally destroying fat cells in the area, rendering them unable to store or accumulate fat.

Kybella is a game-changer, and it works well when paired with Restorative Neck Complex—another skincare product from Alastin. It was designed specifically to firm up the skin under the chin and above the chest, and it can also help mitigate the appearance of age spots and discoloration on the skin.

When used together, these two products can provide a subtle yet significant change to your appearance—helping you to look and feel much more youthful.

Halo Laser + Rejuvenating Skin Nectar

We’ve noted before that the Halo laser treatment is one of the best-kept skincare secrets of Hollywood celebrities—and now, it’s something we provide to our clients in Charlotte!

There’s a reason why Hollywood’s biggest stars line up for Halo treatment: It provides amazing anti-aging, skin-resurfacing effects that last for a long time, and comes with minimal recovery time. In other words, you can rejuvenate your skin but be back up on your feet again in no time.

We especially recommend this treatment when used in tandem with the Rejuvenating Skin Nectar, an excellent skincare product that boosts your body’s healing processes and makes for faster, better results.

Truly, these two cosmetic options are a match made in heaven!

Botox + Revox 7c

Next on our list of cosmetic treatments for skin and body: Botox and Revox 7, both of which can work wonders on their own but work best when used together.

Botox is something you’ve probably heard of, and maybe even had administered: It’s an injectable treatment that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the skin, firming it up. As for Revox 7, this is a topical solution that can also help to firm up the skin and minimize the appearance of winkles and fine lines.

The bottom line: For patients looking to make their skin appear younger and firmer, this double-feature is highly recommended.

Filler + HA5 Lip Smooth and Plump

Finally, a number of patients come to us wanting to know how they can get fuller, firmer lips. There are a number of potential options, but today we want to focus on another perfect pairing.

Start with some basic fillers, which can provide a little extra volume for your lips. But in addition, we also recommend using HA5 Lip Smooth and Plump. Together, these two treatments can help you moisturize, volumize, and protect your lips—allowing you to achieve the healthy and full look you’ve always dreamed of.

Finding the Best Treatments to Achieve Your Beauty Goals

One of the underlying points of this post is that our patients come to us with specific, at times complex visions of how they’d like to look. Our job is to recommend the best action plan to achieve those goals, including whatever cosmetic treatments for skin and body are most appropriate. Sometimes a single treatment or product will suffice; in other cases, the goal is so specific that it really requires us to use one of the perfect pairings mentioned here.

The best way to determine which treatment or treatment pairing is right for you is to come meet with us and enjoy a full consultation. We’d love to get you know you, to talk about your goals, and to help you put together a plan to achieve them—including customized treatment options.

Charlotte Plastic Surgery is proud to provide cosmetic solutions to clients throughout the area, and to help each client determine their best path forward toward their personal goals.
