Skincare is an incredibly important part of any aging regimen, as well as a core component to facial rejuvenation surgery. After all, what good is making a bed without ironed and cleaned sheets? Plastic surgeon Dr. Whitfield offers a selection of incredibly powerful skincare products in Austin, ranging from lasers, radio frequency energy, peels, and topical products, all aimed to provide a unique answer to his patients’ issues.
Whatever your skin care needs or challenges may be, you deserve healthier looking skin. That’s why SkinMedica® dedicated nearly two decades of research to formulating advanced products. Dr. Whitfield can determine exactly what your skin type needs and help combine our products into a personalized regimen.
The first topical growth factor solution with our patented Tissue Nutrient Solution (TNS®) is clinically shown to reduce the appearance of skin discoloration and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
With more clinical studies than any other growth factor product in the market today, this all-in-one skin rejuvenating treatment improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone, and texture.
Lytera® 2.0 is an advanced Pigment Correcting Serum, formulated to address the appearance of stubborn skin discoloration for a variety of skin types and ethnicities.
SkinMedica’s three varying strengths of retinols enhance skin’s radiance, tone, texture, and resiliency.
Rejuvenating superscreen powered by SOL-IR™ Advanced Antioxidant Complex to provide comprehensive protection beyond UVA/UVB rays, while supporting skin’s ability to restore itself.
Powered by SkinMedica’s exclusive VITISENSCE™ Technology, HA5® Rejuvenating Hydrator provides immediate smoothing in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also supports the skin’s natural ability to replenish its own hyaluronic acid (HA) for overall skin health.
ALASTIN Skincare® is a burgeoning professional skincare line aimed at the needs of plastic surgeons and dermatologists. ALASTIN Skincare® products offer clinical-strength anti-aging regimens for home use, while also offering surgeons and dermatologists a specific line of products for use before and after cosmetic procedures. Dr. Whitfield finds ALASTIN Skincare® to be the perfect answer to the skincare needs of his patients.
When cosmetic treatments have finished, ALASTIN Skincare®’s Restore & Renew is used by patients at home to continue improving skin texture and appearance with clinical-grade product.
Pollution, toxins, wind, and UV rays known as free radicals cause undetectable damage to your skin. The natural aging process causes loss of enzyme, which reduces collagen and dehydration of your skin. Free radicals speed up the aging process causing a rapid decline in your skin’s elasticity, resilience, tone and texture. Your skin needs hydration to combat the evils of environment. Dr. Whitfield offers the HydraFacial treatment to address a wide-array of irregularities caused by time and environmental damage.
The unique Vortex-Fusion® serum delivery system sets the HydraFacial MD® apart from other procedures. The multi-step treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums to replenish Antioxidants, Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective.
The HydraFacial treatment is designed for all skin types. Even the most sensitive skin easily tolerates the HydraFacial treatment. Your aesthetic professional may choose specific treatment serums and/or customize a treatment for your unique skin conditions and needs.
HydraFacial is a fast, efficient treatment that takes as little as 30 minutes. You may put on makeup and return to your normal activities right after the treatment since there is no downtime.
Many clients report seeing visible skin refinement and an even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment. The smooth results and hydration may last 5 to 7 days or even longer.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a technology aimed at treating pigmentation discrepancies in the skin. Brown spots, vascular lesions, freckles, and even Rosacea can be treated effectively with the technology, all without surgery. Dr. Whitfield is proud to offer Lumecca, an IPL laser to help his patients even skin tone, whether it’s the face or elsewhere on the body.
Lumecca is an IPL treatment performed without surgery in an office setting. The procedure itself is not painful, leaving patients with some redness following treatment. Depending on the severity of the issues being addressed, patients will require 1-3 treatments. If issues are minor, even just one treatment will produce a marked improvement in skin tone.
The recovery is straightforward. Patients will notice redness and warmth to the skin immediately following treatment, conditions that will dissipate within 24-48 hours.
Some lesions may appear darker but will flake off in the week afterward as the new skin grows underneath. Results from the first treatment will begin to resolve a few days after treatment. The treatments cost $250 per session. Results may vary. During your consultation, Dr. Whitfield and his staff will be able to give you an accurate estimate of the number of necessary treatments.
