Non-surgical procedures are less invasive and usually performed in-office at our Stony Point location.
Simply put, think of Botox as ironing out the wrinkles in your face, and injectable fillers as softening the deep folds from the bottom up. Botox works to smooth out wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that are the actual underlying cause of the wrinkles themselves.
Injectable fillers such as Juvederm work by filling in wrinkles or folds in the face and increasing the volume of your skin. They have a pleasing, rejuvenating effect that softens facial features and can erase a sunken or gaunt look. Juvederm can give subtle, nonsurgical rejuvenation in the cheeks and lower face. For example, if you think about the transition from your cheek to your mouth, it is much like a hill and a valley. By filling in the valley, the transition area of the crease is made much softer and unnoticeable, giving a naturally youthful appearance.
PRP Hair Restoration
Safely and effectively restore hair without the need for surgery or pills. PRP unleashes the power of your own body to encourage dormant hair follicles to grow new hair. PRP therapy is a quick, in office procedure with very little downtime which can safely restore a thick and healthy head of hair.
Kybella Fat Reduction
Kybella is an injectable treatment that eliminates excess fat in the neck and under the chin, without the downtime of a surgical procedure. Kybella is FDA-approved to treat submental fullness, also known as double chin, with a series of injections that dissolve excess fat.
Among other treatments, we also offer a new product known as Matristem TM extracellular matrix. This is a groundbreaking new treatment that, when applied to tissue, recruits stem cells to an area of the skin to tell the cells to repair themselves in a normal, functional way. The procedure causes the body to create new “regular” skin tissue instead of scar tissue.
Dr. Shaw uses the Ellman RF device which utilizes radio wave energy to slowly melt away tissue in the mole. Since there’s no cutting, no bleeding occurs. The RF energy is delivered precisely to the mole with minimal damage to surrounding skin, which minimizes scarring and pigmentation changes.
ThermiTight treatment results in a tightening of the tissue around the neck, jawline, and jowl areas. It takes only 1 hour and requires only 2-3 days of avoiding strenuous activity.
The effects of ThermiTight will result in improved skin laxity several years after treatment.
ThermiVa is an in-office non-hormonal and non-surgical procedure for vaginal tightening, improving dryness, difficulty with orgasm & urinary leakage.
Treatment is a non-invasive application that uses controlled radio frequency energy to gently heat the vulvovaginal tissue to rejuvenate collagen. It is completely safe for use on both internal and external vaginal tissues.
Smart Laser Tattoo Removal
Dr. Shaw uses the newest and fastest laser technology in Richmond known as the Cynosure Picosure laser to safely and quickly remove unwanted tattoos. The laser works by breaking up the ink in the tattoo into tiny fragments which are then naturally cleared by your body’s immune system. This gradually fades the image until it disappears or is unnoticeable. The unique properties of the laser target the ink colors without harming your body’s natural pigments.
Non Surgical Rhinoplasty
Dr. Shaw is a certified instructor in facial fillers, which are now being utilized not only to rejuvenate the face but also to perform non-surgical rhinoplasty to change the appearance of the nose without the downtime associated with a rhinoplasty operation.
The non-surgical nose job is a safe procedure performed in the office in about 15 minutes. Dr. Shaw will minimize your discomfort by using atopical anesthetic cream and then mixing an injectable anesthetic into the filler material.
