Alternative Rejuvenation

Dr. Camille Cash is highly selective about the procedures and services she adopts in her practice. Women and men looking for nonsurgical alternatives to cosmetic surgery or who want to enhance and maintain their cosmetic surgery results have a range of minimally invasive treatment options. From facial rejuvenation, to skin care, to hair restoration, our Houston patients can take advantage of our state-of-the-art treatments performed under the care of our board-certified plastic surgeon.

ALMI™

ALMI is a technology that uses your own fat and stem cells to rejuvenate and revive different areas of the body. ALMI stands for “autologous lipocyte micronized injection,” which is a technical way of saying that your own fat cells are processed and used for injections. ALMI is different from other autologous procedures because the cells it uses are different. Stem and stromal cells are the “blank slates” of the cellular world, and they can develop into different types of cells depending on where in the body they end up. This makes ALMI incredibly versatile and very well-tolerated.

ALMI for Facial and Breast Rejuvenation

ALMI makes a great option for anti-aging, too. During this type of treatment, Dr. Cash harvests the fat, stem cells, and stromal cells with tumescent liposuction. She takes it from an area of your body with plenty of unwanted fat, which is usually the abdomen for most people. Once removed and purified in a special device, Dr. Cash uses a fine needle to inject the product into areas of diminished volume and wrinkles. You can think of ALMI as a dermal filler, only better. In addition to immediately plumping lines and areas of thinness, ALMI can also stimulate deep collagen development for long-term results and a youthful glow that endures. ALMI is also noted for improving the overall strength and resilience of skin, lending it a youthful elasticity that helps improve definition and tone.

CENTRIcyte™ for Hair Restoration

CENTRIcyte is a great option for treating thinning hair or baldness. During the treatment, Dr. Cash uses a gentle form of tumescent liposuction to remove unwanted fat from an area of your body—often the abdomen. Once enough fat is removed (and the donor area has been evaluated to ensure it looks great), the fat is processed in the CENTRIcyte, a special device that isolates it from other materials. We also draw a small amount of blood to harvest platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Once the fat cells and PRP have been isolated, Dr. Cash uses a very small, fine needle to inject them carefully into the scalp, focusing on areas of thinness. The stem cells, stromal cells, and PRP go to work stimulating the hair follicles to begin functioning normally again. The results of this treatment can typically be appreciated within several months. Patience is important, as hair grows in cycles.

During a follow-up appointment, Dr. Cash evaluates your results and discusses any necessary next steps with you. In most cases, a single procedure is sufficient for patients to achieve their desired results.

Silhouette Instalift™

An Instalift both immediately elevates sagging facial skin and stimulates the gradual production of new collagen. The minimally invasive, nonsurgical technique involves threading dissolvable sutures with tiny cones under the skin to reposition and physically lift areas of the face. As the suture material dissolves, it stimulates the body’s production of collagen to create a fuller, more refreshed appearance that can last up to a year or more.

Women and men who aren’t ready for a facelift, or who don’t want to get plastic surgery, can choose the Instalift if they’re concerned about loose skin making them look older than they feel. The procedure can last from 45 to 90 minutes, and most patients experience swelling that can last for 2 or 3 days. That’s really the extent of the downtime, too. You can schedule an Instalift procedure for a Friday morning and be back at work by Monday or Tuesday, using makeup to camouflage any residual bruising. After about 5 to 7 days you can resume all of your normal activities.

INFINI™ RF & Morpheus8

INFINI RF and Morpheus8 are nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments that combine focused radiofrequency energy with microneedling to make the skin firmer, smoother, and tighter. We also use these treatments to treat acne and control excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis). These treatments, safe and effective for all skin colors and types, create tiny microinjuries in the skin using fine, sterile needles. Radiofrequency energy emits from the tips of the needles to extend benefits to deeper layers, making results more significant than microneedling alone while minimizing redness at the surface. Together the microinjuries and RF energy increase collagen production for about 2 months after treatment. Morpheus8 may be adjusted to penetrate deeper to reduce fat beneath the skin as well. For optimal results, we recommend a series of 2 to 4 treatments spaced approximately 4 weeks apart.

EmbraceRF

A nonsurgical alternative to facial rejuvenation and skin tightening with a facelift and neck lift, the EmbraceRF procedure is performed using a combination of FaceTite and Morpheus8 treatments. Patients are awake during this office procedure and experience little to no discomfort. After the targeted area is numbed with a local anesthetic, the following steps are performed:

  1. FaceTite is used to stimulate collagen production and melt underlying fat. The FaceTite applicator has a long, thin probe that is inserted under the skin while an external radiofrequency (RF) transmitter follows the probe on top of the skin. The RF energy emitted during the treatment heats the skin from the outside surface and underneath. The skin and fat are heated to carefully controlled temperatures, causing the skin to tighten and fat to melt.
  2. Next, Morpheus8 RF microneedling is performed to increase collagen production further, which smoothes out wrinkles and fine lines, and firms and tightens the skin.

Typically, patients feel ready to be seen in public within 3 to 4 days and only a single treatment is needed. While improvements are noticeable right away, optimal results develop in 6 weeks. The skin continues to tighten for about a year for additional improvement.

Votiva and AVIVA Feminine Rejuvenation

This nonsurgical alternative to labiaplasty and vaginoplasty provides both cosmetic and physical improvements to the labia and vagina using gentle, controlled RF energy. As with ThermiVa®, women choose Votiva and AVIVA to treat a variety of concerns including:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Lax, thinning outer labia and inner vaginal tissues
  • Discomfort during intercourse
  • Urinary incontinence

Votiva and AVIVA are performed with the same RF technology used for FaceTite. Depending on individual concerns, treatments may incorporate the Forma V applicator wand to treat the entire vaginal canal, vaginal opening, and inner/outer labia. The Morpheus8 applicator is used to rejuvenate the labia only. Votiva is incorporated to treat the inner labia and AVIVA is used to treat the outer labia.

Treatments are performed without anesthetic and no downtime is needed, except a 2 to 3-day break from sexual intercourse. Results develop gradually as collagen and blood flow increase. For optimal results, 1 to 3 treatments are needed, each spaced about a month apart.

Fraxel®

These non-ablative fractional laser skin treatments, used on the face, neck, hands, arms, and other exposed skin, address many common concerns, which include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Freckles, age spots, and other skin discoloration
  • Scars from acne and chickenpox
  • Uneven or rough texture

The Fraxel laser emits thousands of pinpoint beams of laser energy to increase collagen production and destroy imperfections within the skin without harming its surface. Because alternating pinpoints of skin are not treated, healing is quick and recovery time is minimal. To maximize your rejuvenation, we recommend a series of 3 to 5 treatments spaced about 2 to 4 weeks apart.

CO2 Laser

Our fractional CO2 laser, like the Fraxel laser, treats pinpoint areas of the skin leaving alternating areas untreated. Unlike Fraxel, it is an ablative laser, which means the surface of the skin is impacted. The CO2 laser is excellent for treating

  • Deeper wrinkles and creases
  • Brown spots such as freckles and sunspots
  • Rough, uneven texture
  • Moderate to severe acne scarring
  • Scars from surgery and injury

These treatments do not address rosacea and other redness. Most patients require a single treatment for dramatic results; however, recovery is typically longer than that with Fraxel.

Ultherapy®

This FDA-cleared nonsurgical treatment uses ultrasound to naturally tighten, lift, and firm the skin through renewed collagen production. Benefits include:

  • Lifting sagging brows or jawline
  • Tightening lax skin along the jawline or neck
  • Smoothing away lines and creases on the décolletage

While not a replacement for a facelift or neck lift, Ultherapy is great for people with mild to moderate skin thinning and laxity who want to avoid surgery. In most cases, a single treatment is all that is needed for noticeable improvement. No downtime is needed. Patients often notice immediate tightening with continued improvement for about 2 to 3 months.

MicroLaserPeel®

These superficial laser resurfacing treatments are safe for all skin types are often used on the face, neck, chest, and hands. Treatments take just 15 to 30 minutes to address a variety of concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brown spots such as freckles and sunspots
  • Superficial scars like those from acne and chickenpox
  • Keratoses

Patients typically are ready to return to work within 3 to 4 days, depending on the depth of treatment.   A series of MicroLaserPeels is usually needed for optimal results, the number of which depends on individual concerns.
