Skin-Confident Summer: Your Go-To Summer Safe Treatments 

Warmer weather is quickly approaching Memphis. Now is the time to plan skincare treatments to enhance your skin’s appearance and achieve a radiant complexion that will last you all summer long. For skin clear of insecurities this summer season, our team suggests a comprehensive skincare treatment plan. We can help you address a variety of concerns, from fine lines and wrinkles to uneven skin tone and texture. By combining the most effective aesthetic medicine procedures that PSG Skincare & Laser Center has to offer, including Botox, Filler, and Morpheus8, you can prepare your skin for months of confidence, ease and radiance. 


Botox for Fine Lines, Wrinkles and More 

Botox, also known as botulinum toxin, is a popular injectable treatment used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles responsible for causing dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and forehead lines. Botox treatment typically takes effect within 3 to 7 days, with optimal results visible after 2 weeks. To prepare for a big event, our PSG team recommends that you schedule Botox treatment at least 2 weeks in advance. Maintenance injections are typically needed every 3 to 4 months to sustain results. 

These are five frequently asked treatment concerns when requesting Botox:  

  • Wrinkles and Fine Lines: Botox is highly effective in reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines, which develop due to repetitive muscle contractions. By temporarily paralyzing the targeted muscles, Botox smooths out these wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance. 
  • Preventive Aging: Many individuals opt for Botox as a preventive measure to delay the onset of wrinkles and fine lines. By relaxing the muscles responsible for facial expressions, Botox helps prevent the formation of deep-set wrinkles, allowing you to maintain a youthful appearance for longer. 
  • Frown lines (Glabellar lines): These vertical lines between the eyebrows, also known as “11 lines,” are a common concern for many individuals. Botox can effectively reduce the appearance of frown lines by relaxing the underlying muscles, preventing them from contracting and forming deep creases. 
  • Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis): Botox injections are FDA-approved for the treatment of hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, particularly in the underarms, palms, and feet. By blocking the nerve signals that stimulate sweat glands, Botox effectively reduces sweat production, providing long-lasting relief from excessive sweating. 
  • Lower face: Botox injections in the lower face, also known as “lower face tox,” have become increasingly popular for addressing concerns such as jawline definition, chin dimpling, and marionette lines. By strategically injecting Botox into specific facial muscles, it can help slim your jawline, reduce chin dimpling, and soften marionette lines, resulting in a more contoured and youthful appearance. 



Dermal Filler for Youthful Contours and Balance  

Dermal fillers are versatile injectable treatments that can be used to enhance your face with youthful contours, symmetry, and balance, resulting in a natural-looking appearance. By strategically injecting hyaluronic acid-based fillers into specific areas of your face, such as the cheeks, temples, jawline, and lips, PSG Skincare & Laser Center providers can restore lost volume, smooth wrinkles, and create harmonious proportions. 

Fillers like Juvederm work by attracting water molecules to the injected area, providing immediate volumizing effects. Results from filler treatments are visible immediately and can last anywhere from 6 to 18 months, depending on the type of filler used. To ensure optimal results for summer events, we recommend that you undergo filler treatment at least 2 weeks prior to the date. Maintenance injections may be needed to preserve filler results because your body gradually metabolizes the hyaluronic acid filler over time. Regular touch-up treatments can help you maintain your desired aesthetic and prolong the effects of their initial filler treatment. 

These are five frequently asked treatment concerns when requesting Dermal Filler like Juvederm: 

  • Volume loss in cheeks: Loss of volume in your cheeks is a common sign of aging that can lead to a sunken or hollow appearance. Dermal fillers are popular for restoring volume to the cheeks, providing a more youthful and lifted contour to the face. 
  • Lip augmentation: Many individuals desire fuller, more defined lips for a youthful and attractive appearance. Dermal fillers can enhance lip volume, shape, and symmetry, creating natural-looking results that enhance facial harmony and balance. 
  • Nasolabial folds (smile lines): Nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines or laugh lines, are creases that extend from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Dermal fillers can soften and smooth nasolabial folds by adding volume to the surrounding areas, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. 
  • Three-point lift: The three-point lift involves strategically injecting dermal filler into three key areas of your face—the temples, cheeks, and jawline—to lift and rejuvenate your midface and lower face. This technique helps restore youthful contours, improve facial symmetry, and reduce the signs of aging. 
  • Eight-point lift: Like the three-point lift, the eight-point lift involves injecting dermal filler into eight specific points on your face to address multiple signs of aging, including volume loss, sagging skin, and deep wrinkles. By strategically targeting these areas, the eight-point lift can produce comprehensive facial rejuvenation, resulting in a more lifted, refreshed appearance.

Morpheus8 for Flawless, Tightened Skin 

Morpheus8 is an advanced radiofrequency microneedling treatment that targets deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture and tone. It can address concerns such as wrinkles, acne scars, and skin laxity. Morpheus8 treatment typically requires a series of sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart for optimal results. Patients may experience some redness and swelling following treatment, but downtime is minimal. To prepare for summer events, we recommend that you start Morpheus8 treatments at least 3 months in advance. Maintenance sessions may be needed annually to maintain results. 

These are five frequently asked treatment concerns when requesting the Morpheus8 treatment: 

  • Fine lines and wrinkles: Morpheus8 is popular for effectively reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin, resulting in smoother and firmer skin texture. 
  • Skin laxity: Morpheus8 addresses skin laxity by delivering radiofrequency energy deep into the dermis, which tightens and firms the skin over time, improving overall skin elasticity and reducing sagging. 
  • Acne scars: Morpheus8 helps improve the appearance of acne scars by promoting collagen remodeling and smoothing out uneven skin texture, resulting in a more even complexion and diminished scarring. 
  • Uneven skin tone and texture: Morpheus8 targets uneven skin tone and texture by stimulating cellular turnover and promoting the growth of healthy new skin cells, leading to a more uniform and radiant complexion. 
  • Subtle facial contouring: Morpheus8 can be used for subtle facial contouring by precisely delivering radiofrequency energy to specific areas of the face, such as the jawline and cheeks, to enhance definition and create a more sculpted appearance.
