Visia Skin Analysis

The VISIA skin analysis machine is a non-invasive technology that scans your skin, looking at its strengths and weaknesses and producing an assessment of your skin’s health. The VISIA scans measures:
· skin pigmentation
· pore size
· porphyrins (evidence of bacteria lodged in pores)
· UV spots
· sun damage
· texture
· wrinkles
With this assessment of your skin, we get a baseline of your skin health, suggest a skincare program to meet your needs, and can objectively measure your progress going forward.

Medical Grade Facials
(Hydrafacials)

The Hydrafacial MD is a medical-grade facial treatment using vortex extraction of surface dead skin, blackhead plugs, and dirt/pollution buildup, followed by infusion of therapeutic and rejuvenating serums.

Rapidly effective, this treatment combines hydrating with exfoliation to give the skin a buffed glow that produces an “immediate” beautification treatment. This facial is used for all sorts of skin conditions, including acne, rosacea, dull/sun damaged skin, dry skin, and pigmented skin.

Although initially popular as a quick skin “wakeup” treatment among middle-aged men and women, this procedure is rapidly becoming a “must-have” for teens, especially boys with blackheads! This treatment is one that typically patients will do every 2-3 months.

MicroNeedling

This unique combination of modalities painlessly and effectively rejuvenates at all levels of skin: stratum corneum, epidermis, and upper dermis.

The skin is designed to be an excellent barrier and NOT let substances (or your helpful products) in; MicroNeedling bypasses this barrier. MicroNeedling also breaks up scarring and "wakes up" the dermis to start producing collagen.

The procedure begins with the application of topical anesthetic for about 20 minutes to make the procedure painless. This is followed by applying a layer of our specially formulated "skin fertilizer" (which contains a healing mixture of antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and collagen inducing vitamins). The treatment is then painlessly performed with our electric microneedling device, adjusted to variable depths depending on the skin thickness and client needs, to form many thousands of microscopic channels into the skin.

These channels allow dramatic (~ 100 fold) enhancement of penetration of nourishing and rejuvenating ingredients into all layers of the skin. After creating these microscopic channels, we again apply another layer of healing and rejuvenating "fertilizer" and then apply a special hydrating alginate mask (a unique step added by Dr. Kenner from her years of experience), designed to both enhance the penetration of product through the channels to the deepest layers of skin, as well as soothe hydrate and calm the skin. Many clients fall asleep during the mask application and enjoy a peaceful finale to this incredible treatment.

Electric microneedling is particularly effective for acne and other scarring conditions, wrinkles, rosacea, sun damage, poor skin tone, lax skin, and pigmentation. This powerful skin treatment is suitable for the face, and many other surface areas, including neck, chest, hands, arms, bellies, scalp, etc.

This powerful treatment is markedly safer, and more effective, than deep chemical peels and laser resurfacing. Microneedling is rapidly gaining awareness of savvy consumers wanting to improve their skin without the risk, pain, or downtime of older technologies.

The microneedling facial is so effective and has such a minimal downtime, that many patients are choosing to do this facial on a regular basis, several times a year to upkeep their skin. To activate the skin’s stem cells and repair itself most effectively, Dr. Kenner recommends a series of 3 sessions, separated by 2-4 weeks. For stubborn scars, wrinkles or pigmentation patients will likely need more sessions.

Filler

This procedure uses natural ingredients to re-volumize and restore the aesthetics or youthful shape of your face. Face shape is altered by the loss of deeper structures (such as bone, fat, muscle and collagen) which wear down over the years from exposure to sun and visible light. Structural loss may contribute to natural genetic tendencies to hollows, sagging, or disproportionalities. This alteration in facial volume and proportions is a big tipoff to our brain's recognition of age and beauty.

Touted as the "non-surgical facelift" treatments with filler are rapidly replacing or delaying the need or consideration of face lifts! Dramatically less downtime (and less impact on your pocketbook!) results with artfully applied filler can be seen immediately, with minimal recovery time (consisting mostly of mild temporary swelling or bruising), and offer a gradual natural unwinding of the clock.

But fillers go beyond just the face! These amazing treatments can be applied to the hands, chest, and neck as well!

Dr. Kenner likes to say that using filler is like an artist applying a little more clay here and there — a process which can be done in successive treatments over time, to get just the right look and yet keep the process private so friends and family will just marvel at your appearance without really knowing "something was done."

Facial shaping using filler has revolutionized aesthetic medicine, and dramatically reduced the need for facelifts. Dr. Kenner and her associate Katie Estes are particularly skilled in jawline rejuvenation and lip filling and focus on creating extremely natural effects. Lip treatment at SkinHappy are a particular favorite, with our attention to symmetry and proper proportionality, and avoidance of the dreaded "duck lips" or other unnatural looks.

Certain fillers, such as Radiesse, are biostimulatory, which means that the filler serves to recreate your own tissue by acting like a scaffold and stimulating your body to lay down its own natural collagen around this material and eventually replace it as the filler agent disappears over time. Filler treatments can be done as a “one time” treatment lasting several years, or repeated as needed.

Neurotoxin

Injection with neurotoxin has rightfully earned recognition as the most common cosmetic procedure in the world. Nearly painless, and highly effective, this treatment relaxes muscles causing wrinkles (and more) and can erase years within a few short days!

At SkinHappy MD, we use several forms of neurotoxin, including the safest form of neurotoxin, called Xeomin. When properly applied, neurotoxins can smooth the skin, lift the brow and open the eye space, ease TMJ symptoms, help headaches, treat excessive sweating, balance facial asymmetry, and much more.

Neurotoxin can also be used to stop TMJ pain by relaxing the masseter muscle, relax lines in the neck by treating the banding, help headaches, treat dimpling in the chin, reduce lip lines, and more!

There is no downtime; results are seen in 3-5 days and last for 3-6 months on average. Patients tend to repeat this treatment every few months, for a regular, ongoing treatment.
