What are aesthetic services?

  • Lines and creases
  • Wrinkles

  • Hollow cheeks and temples
  • Double chin
  • Crow’s feet
  • Unwanted hair

Aesthetic treatments deliver the benefits of increased self-esteem and confidence with far fewer risks than plastic surgery and at a much more affordable cost.

What aesthetic services are available?

Rapha Family Medicine, PC offers a selection of the safest and most effective aesthetic services, including:

Botox injections

Botox comes from a naturally occurring toxin. Injections reduce forehead lines, crow’s feet around the eyes, and frown lines. Your provider injects tiny quantities of Botox into your face, blocking the activity of specific nerves. The nerves can’t send signals to your facial muscles, so your skin doesn’t crease and wrinkle. The effects look natural and last 3-4 months.

Dermal fillers

Fillers target lines and wrinkles and fill in hollowed areas. They contain substances like hyaluronic acid, a natural lubricant and hydrating agent. Injecting fillers into lines, wrinkles, and hollows plumps the tissue beneath your skin, making it smoother and restoring a more youthful appearance. Fillers can last for several years in some cases.

Laser hair removal

Unwanted hair requires daily shaving or regular waxing to keep it under control. Laser hair removal involves using light energy to destroy hair roots and stop new hairs from growing. A course of treatments gives you smooth skin and does away with the need for shaving and waxing.

Are aesthetic services painful?

Most aesthetic services cause little to no discomfort. If you don’t like needles, your provider can give you some cream that numbs the area they’re going to inject. With laser hair removal, you might feel an odd sensation like a rubber band snapping on your skin, but it’s nothing too uncomfortable.

Any discomfort you do feel is easily controllable with over-the-counter remedies. In comparison to cosmetic surgery, aesthetic services are virtually painless and require minimal or no downtime.

The effects are often immediate, too, particularly for Botox and filler treatments.
