Non-Surgical

Non-surgical treatments, or minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, are used to reduce the appearance of facial lines, remove unwanted hair, and even out skin pigmentation. Read on for more information about the non-surgical treatments we provide.


Botox

Botox Cosmetic is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crow's feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. The toxin contained in Botox blocks nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles.

Latisse

Latisse is a safe, effective eyelash growth treatment that, when applied nightly, helps you grow longer, thicker upper eyelashes. Lusher, darker lashes will start to appear about 8 weeks after you start using Latisse, and the results will last as long as you decide to use it.

Chemical Peel

Chemical peel uses a chemical solution to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers. It is helpful for those individuals with facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation. Common chemical formulas include alpha-hydroxy acid, glycolic acid and others.

Micro Laser Peel

The Sciton Micro Laser Peel is a minimally invasive laser treatment designed to improve skin tone and texture, smoothing your skin and creating a fresh, healthy glow. Often called the "Weekend Peel," Micro Laser Peel treatment involves very little downtime and causes only mild redness (similar to a sunburn).

Laser Vein Treatment

Endovenous laser treatment, more commonly known as EVLT or simply laser vein treatment, can help you get rid of varicose veins and spider veins in your legs. Using a process called ablation, laser vein treatment collapses damaged leg veins by delivering laser energy to the vein walls and diverting blood flow to other, functional veins. Laser vein treatment is also sometimes used to correct unsightly, bulging veins in the hands.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a skin-freshening technique that helps repair facial skin that takes a beating from the sun and the effects of aging. The plastic surgeon uses a device like a fine sandblaster to spray tiny crystals across the face, mixing gentle abrasion with suction to remove the dead, outer layer of skin.

Hand Rejuvenation

Non-surgical hand rejuvenation improves sun damaged skin and corrects volume loss in the hands. Veiny, withered hands can be plumped using Radiesse and may also benefit from sclerotherapy or laser vein treatment. When combined with laser resurfacing, age spots and uneven pigmentation can also be reduced to reveal more youthful-looking hands.

ProFractional Laser

Skin resurfacing with the ProFractional Laser can gently remove small areas of damaged or wrinkled skin to provide an overall facial rejuvenation effect without the downtime associated with non-fractional laser resurfacing treatments. The ProFractional Laser is most commonly used to help patients achieve a smoother, healthier complexion.

Injectable Fillers

Soft-tissue fillers can help fill in lines and creases, temporarily restoring a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance. When injected beneath the skin, these fillers plump up creased and sunken areas of the face and can also be used for lip augmentation.

Radiesse

Radiesse is a soft tissue filler used for correction of deep folds and creases on the face, cheek augmentation, hand rejuvenation and occasionally, for correction of superficial contour irregularities of the nose. Unlike injectable fillers made of hyaluronic acid,

Juvederm

Facial folds and wrinkles, thin lips, scars and even dark circles under the eyes can be improved with Juvederm injections. Juvederm is an injectable filler made of hyaluronic acid gel, soft, pliable, naturally-occuring substance that can be used to add volume to nearly any area of the face to rejuvenate and refresh your appearance.

Skin Tightening

Mild skin laxity and crepey, thin facial skin can be lifted and tightened without surgery using the Sciton laser devices available at Plastic Surgery of North Mississippi. Dr. Pritchard will evaluate your unique skin characteristics and facial anatomy to determine whether you are a good candidate for non-surgical skin tightening and create a customized treatment plan to give you a firmer face and neck.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal uses light-based energy to target the pigment in your hair, permanently reducing its growth after a series of treatments. Permanent hair reduction with our line of powerful Sciton lasers is effective for use on nearly any area of the face or body, including the legs, bikini region, underarms, back, chest, abdomen, arms, upper lip and chin.

Sclerotherapy

Spider veins, varicose veins and other vascular blemishes on the legs and hands can be safely and effectively treated with sclerotherapy. This non surgical vein treatment involves injection of a solution known as a sclerosing agent to shrink and fade unsightly veins, replacing them with healthy tissue. The result is smoother, even skin with significantly fewer vascular imperfections.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Sun damaged, wrinkled skin can be refreshed and restored with laser skin resurfacing. During this procedure, layers of skin are gently stripped away using safe, effective Sciton laser technology to promote collagen remodeling and skin rejuvenation through the body's natural healing process.

Skin Management

Whether you're planning a surgical or non-surgical skin treatment, it's important that you find a doctor who has training and experience with a variety of skin management techniques. Dr. Alan Pritchard and his staff can recommend the best possible single treatment or combination of treatments to improve your skin.
