What's New in Cosmetic Dermatology at Fargo's Altaire Clinic

Are you looking for cosmetic dermatology that’s advanced and minimally invasive? Discover the full range of cosmetic treatments and services at Altaire Clinic in Fargo. Whether you’re looking to treat psoriasis and acne, or fine lines and wrinkles, you can find information to make a confident decision in cosmetic dermatology. 

Minimally Invasive Procedures 

Minimally invasive procedures have been increasing in popularity, not only due to their effectiveness, but also their minimal downtime. With each procedure being minimally invasive on your body and performed by an accredited medical professional, you can enjoy minimal downtime as well. 

Procedures like Botox, dermal filler, and even laser treatments allow for the support the look of a youthful appearance, without requiring extensive downtime and lifestyle alterations. Results are typically seen within just a few days, allowing you to enjoy the rejuvenating results of your treatment.

Combination Treatments 

If you’re looking for the best results, consider combining treatments. Having individual cosmetic dermatology treatments are effective, but combining them safely can help support a youthful look while minimizing the number of appointments needed. Typical combinations can include combining laser treatments and injectables or microneedling with PRP

Combining laser treatments with injectables is an option if you’d like to remove age spots, freckles, redness, small vessels or reduce hair, while improving the fullness and texture of your skin or lips. 

Combining PRP with microneedling is another option if you’d prefer to naturally help your skin tone regain its bright, smooth, healthy and firm appearance, while reducing acne scars or wrinkles. 

Laser Treatments 

Laser treatments aren’t just for achieving a more youthful look. They’ve expanded to include technologies for skin resurfacing, hair removal, and pigmentation corrections, including the use of fractional and picosecond lasers. Some treatments, like ClearV, can be used throughout the entire body. 

For those who want to reduce hair in certain areas, laser treatments can be an option. People experiencing hyperpigmentation, sunspots, or excessive scarring from acne can benefit from laser treatments as well. DiVa laser treatments can be used to address a woman’s most intimate challenges caused by childbirth and/or menopause and restore tissue to a healthy state. 

Spider veins, a condition that typically affects the lower legs, can be greatly reduced with the use of laser treatments like ClearV. ClearV™ can treat conditions affecting vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins, vascular lesions, and discoloration of the skin. Unwanted vessels under the skin are heated by the laser energy and implode, becoming less noticeable. 

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

PRP treatments have been used both in wound care and surgery but have since been an effective alternative in cosmetic dermatology for men and women alike. This revolutionary treatment is a more natural alternative, using the patient’s own blood for skin rejuvenation and hair restoration. By injecting the patient’s own nutrient rich blood into the scalp, the scalp is stimulated and may better regulate replication (mitogenic effects) of growth factors to grow new hair.

PRP facial treatments skin rejuvenation uses your blood as a matrix to promote collagen growth and regenerate tissue. This leads to naturally helping your skin tone regain its bright, smooth, healthy, and firm appearance. PRP reduces pore size, improves elasticity, protects against hyperpigmentation such as freckles and skin blemishes, and improves chapped skin and burn wounds. 

Body Contouring and Fat Reduction 

When thinking of body contouring and fat reduction, many people think of invasive surgeries or liposuction. Techniques like CoolSculpting, offer non-surgical fat reduction. 

CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical, FDA-cleared fat-freezing procedure. This fat-reduction method utilizes controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts of diet and exercise. It is specially designed for those who have noticeable fat bulges underneath the chin, in the thighs, in the abdomen, and flank, as well as those who have bra fat, back fat, and fat underneath the butt. CoolSculpting® results are proven, noticeable, and lasting.

Hydrafacial Treatments 

Does your skin need some extra love and care? Talk to an expert to see if hydrafacial treatments are right for you.

Hydrafacial treatments are a multi-step procedure that cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and hydrate for a radiant complexion. The cleansing process gently exfoliates the skin uncovering a new layer of skin while relaxing the facial tissue. Extraction gradually unclogs pores while deeply hydrating your skin. 

Customized Skincare Regimens 

At Altaire, we recognize that skincare regimens are not a one-size-fits-all solution. Skincare solutions are deeply personal and vary from person to person. Choosing a customized skincare regimen not only allows for a more personalized routine, but can be science backed too. Personalized skincare solutions based on skin analysis, skin type assessments, and lifestyle, are tailored to individual needs. Whether you have sensitive skin or are prone to sun exposure, consulting a medical professional about your individual skin care needs can support a healthy skin, as well as a well rounded pre and post procedure skin health and recovery.

Neuromodulators Beyond Botox 

Altaire specializes in several neuromodulators like Xeomin,Dysport, and Jeaveau for those who are looking for an alternative to Botox. 

XEOMIN® is a proprietary treatment that uses botulinum toxin type A (similar to the active ingredient in BOTOX treatment) to remove the appearance of numerous cosmetic worries, ranging from deep, persistent frown lines between the eyebrows and forehead crinkles to ever-present crow's feet and laugh lines. As a result, wrinkles are safely removed from the skin, resulting in smoother, younger looking skin. 

A frown-line removing alternative is Jeaveau. This injection is dedicated specifically to the world of aesthetics. 

Skin Tightening Procedures 

Skin can sag due to multiple factors like aging, loss of fat, or body composition changes. Altaire has medical professionals skilled in performing skin tightening procedures to enhance skin tightness and improve texture and appearance. SkinTyte is a need-free alternative that can help to tighten skin on the face. ‘No Needle’ Treatments 

There’s a misconception that all cosmetic dermatology requires needles. If you’re not comfortable with needles, consider trying a ‘no needle’ treatment. The advent of needle-free aesthetic treatments delivers applications transdermally. These treatments are slowly absorbed into the skin to achieve the desired effects and aesthetic. 

Common no-needle treatments can be used for hands, lips, and face to achieve:

  • Skin tightening
  • Reduced fine lines
  • Improved texture and color
  • Enhanced radiance

Looking to minimize your recovery time? Consider ‘no needle’ treatments as they are non-invasiveness and have reduced recovery times. Many treatments like fillers and non-surgical facelifts that are typically performed with needles can be performed completely or in-part with a ‘no needle’ alternative. 

Cosmetic Services for Men 

Contrary to popular belief, cosmetic services are not just for women – they’re for men too! There is a rising trend of men utilizing cosmetic services like Botox and other neuromodulators to maintain a youthful, competitive edge in business. 

Men can choose from most any cosmetic service already mentioned above. From more medically focused treatments like psoriasis, rosacea, and acne scars, to more cosmetic services like fillers and non-surgical facelifts, men can enjoy them all. Results for men can support more youthful and masculine skin and appearance.

There are also personal reasons why a man may consider cosmetic services, especially like services like PRP for hair loss or PRP male injection. This all-natural procedure works with your body to enhance blood flow and stimulate tissue healing. Men who have lost function due to an enlarged prostate, prostate cancer, the after-effects of surgery, and other conditions such as diabetes may find this procedure particularly useful.
