At Greater Charlotte Oral & Facial Surgery, we know that safe and effective skincare can be life-changing, which is why we offer a range of cosmetic treatments in our state-of-the-art Facial Center. Our goal is to make patients feel comfortable and cared for, and at our Facial Center, patients benefit from having board-certified surgeons on site that can address any foundational issues. Our Facial Center professionals receive specialized training in the safest and most innovative cosmetic procedures to deliver the best possible experience and outcome for patients.
This revolutionary deep-cleansing facial uses cutting-edge technology to ensure a rejuvenated appearance. Unlike microdermabrasion, Hydrafacial MD combines proprietary serums with vacuum technology to cleanse, peel, extract, hydrate, fuse, and protect your skin.
Hydrafacial MD is ideal for virtually everyone, improving fine lines and wrinkles, elasticity and firmness, tone, vibrancy, skin texture, brown spots, oily and congested skin, and enlarged pores.
What to Expect:
The Facial Center offers Hydrafacial MD in Pineville and Gastonia. Prior to your Hydrafacial MD treatment, you should avoid exposure to the sun, tanning beds, and tanning products for six weeks. You can rest assured that the treatment will not cause you any pain and does not cause rashes, peeling, irritation, or inflam
mation. Following your treatment, you should avoid using strong topical creams for about a week. Most patients schedule routine Hydrafacial MD appointments every four weeks for optimal skin health and appearance.
The Facial Center offers platelet-rich plasma, often called PRP, to assist your body in healing itself safely and naturally. During platelet-rich plasma treatments, we draw your blood in a clean and comfortable setting, extract the platelets, and then inject them into damaged tissue to promote and expedite the healing process.
This safe and effective facial treatment fortifies your own platelet-rich plasma by activating a platelet-rich fibrin matrix and reintroduces it to the skin, creating transformational results. You can expect new production of collagen and elastin as well as improvements in wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks, skin tone, texture, and fine lines.
What to Expect
The Facial Center provides PRP in Pineville and Gastonia. While this procedure can be a little uncomfortable for our patients, we aim to provide the most comfortable experience possible using non-addictive, non-narcotic numbing agents and pain relievers. After your PRP facial, some redness, soreness, bruising, and discomfort are common.
Most patients don’t incorporate PRP facials into their routine skincare routine; instead, you’ll likely need between one and six treatments at least four weeks apart to achieve your desired result. Once you’ve addressed the skincare issues that matter most to you, you can transition to less invasive skincare treatments to maintain your skin health indefinitely.
The PRP Facelift is similar to the PRP facial, except that our board-certified surgeons combine your own platelet-rich plasma with a hyaluronic acid filler. PRP facelift is especially effective in improving elasticity, firmness, and fullness in the face and is ideal for those who are unhappy with wrinkles or loss of volume.
What to Expect
Platelet-rich facelifts are often scheduled every 18-36 months to maintain the appearance you want. Our team will administer topical anesthesia prior to the start of your treatment to minimize pain and keep you comfortable. Some redness, swelling, and itching are common in the three days following your treatment.
Injectables offer a non-surgical treatment to create smoother-looking skin and correct the signs of aging. We offer patients a complimentary cosmetic consultation and skin assessment to determine the best injectable option for the patient. All injectable services are performed by our board-certified surgeons.
Kybella is a non-surgical treatment to address double chins or fullness underneath the chin area. Kybella is injected into the under-chin area where it breaks down fat over time. The injections consist of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that breaks down fat in the body. The result is a noticeable reduction in the fullness under the chin.
What to Expect
The Facial Center offers Kybella services in Pineville and Gastonia. After your appointment, you might notice some swelling and bruising, but those side effects will go away within a few weeks. You’ll begin to see noticeable results just four to six weeks after your treatment.
Most patients need just two to four treatments in order to achieve their desired results, and those treatments should be at least one month apart. During your consultation appointment, our team will ensure you know what to expect, including the approximate number of treatments you’ll need.
Dermal fillers are injected into the face to improve fullness. They can be used to make the lips or cheeks fuller and tighter or to fill out sunken or shallow areas that develop with age or weight loss. Additionally, by filling out the skin, dermal fillers often tighten your skin and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
At the Facial Center, we offer various dermal fillers including:
- Juvederm Volbella®, most commonly used to augment lips
- Juvederm Vollure®, used to correct moderate to severe wrinkles and “parentheses lines”
- Voluma®, which replaces lost volume in the cheek and mid-face
- Voluma® XC, used to augment the cheeks and chin
- Botox® Cosmetic, which corrects forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet
What to Expect
The Facial Center offers dermal fillers in Pineville and Gastonia. During your dermal filler appointment, the filler will be injected into problem areas to help you achieve your treatment goals. Your results may look exaggerated immediately after treatment, but they soften over the next few days.
Microneedling stimulates the skin to produce elastin and collagen on its own, leading to results that continue to improve and evolve over time. Microneedling uses the Rejuvapen microneedling pen, combining it with growth factors containing telomere protection.
What to Expect
The Facial Center offers microneedling in Pineville and Gastonia.Most patients can safely schedule microneedling every four to six weeks. During this procedure, a trained professional will use a dermaroller to prick your skin, stimulating the production of collagen. Afterward, patients receive a recovery mask. If you have concerns with scars, wrinkles, or large pores, you might be a strong candidate for microneedling, but it’s important to visit with your doctor during your consultation appointment. Some acne medications can make microneedling unsafe.
Also called blading or microplaning, dermaplaning is a procedure that removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells using an exfoliating blade. The goal of dermaplaning is to remove deep scarring, delivering a smooth and youthful result. The treatment removes villous hair and helps products better penetrate the skin. Dermaplaning is especially beneficial for our patients with pockmarks, acne scars, or ice pick scars.
What to Expect
At the Facial Center, we provide a pain-free dermaplaning experience in Pineville and Gastonia. The appointment is pleasant and easy to tolerate. Recommendations will depend on the unique features of your skin, but most patients schedule their dermaplaning appointment every three to four weeks.
Chemical peels utilize chemicals to remove the outermost layer of skin. The process removes skin that has been damaged by scarring, sun exposure, and age, and reveals the new, healthy skin beneath it. Peels are especially effective in reducing fine lines, treating wrinkles, improving the appearance of scars, treating acne, reducing age spots, and improving the overall look and feel of your skin. Patients with a wide variety of skin problems are able to achieve improvement without surgery using chemical peel treatments.
Enzyme peels are more gentle than chemical peels, making this treatment ideal for those who want rejuvenation but have sensitive skin. Deep-cleaning enzyme peels treat rosacea, pigmentation problems, and acne while tightening the skin. If you have mild to moderate aging signs and are either too sensitive or uncomfortable with a chemical peel, an enzyme peel may be a good option for you.
At the Facial Center, we offer three enzyme peels:
- Cranberry, which offers a no-downtime solution for acne-prone skin
- Mango, designed specifically for sensitive skin and rosacea
- Phyto pumpkin, which is versatile and revitalizing for all skin types
What to Expect
The Facial Center offers enzyme peels in Pineville and Gastonia. During the treatment, you may notice slight burning or tingling. After the treatment, there is no recovery time required, although you’ll have to avoid sun exposure for up to ten days.
This light to medium depth peel improves the signs of hyperpigmentation, photodamage, and aging while smoothing the texture of your skin. Through an exfoliation process, the skin’s cell turnover is increased, improving collagen and elastin production, which will leave your skin looking radiant and firmer over time. Micropeels are available at our Pineville office.
What to Expect
The Facial Center offers micropeels in Pineville and Gastonia. Most patients need more than one micropeel to achieve their desired results, and these sessions should be at least a few weeks apart. The qualified team at the Facial Center will help you establish a treatment plan for your unique concerns and goals. Following treatment, patients receive an after-care home kit.
This medium to deep peel is designed to control acne and fade acne scars, reduce melasma and hyperpigmentation, and diminish the visible signs of aging. This peel is a strong solution for candidates looking for minimally-invasive treatment methods for common skin problems or overall skin health and wellness.
What to Expect
The Facial Center offers resurfacing peels in Pineville and Gastonia. You may need several resurfacing peels to achieve your desired results, especially if you have scarring or hyperpigmentation. Treatments should be at least four to six weeks apart. The experts at the Facial Center will help create a customized treatment plan for you and your skin. Following treatment, patients receive an after-care home kit.
