The skin is the body’s largest organ, and putting your freshest face forward is important. Proactive patients present healthier, more beautiful skin through treatments with Dr. Burgess at her Lake Oswego clinic. This may be achieved through the reduction of wrinkles, lasers, or other skin treatments to reveal a fresh face. For patients visiting her Portland-area plastic surgery practice, the range of skin services and body sculpting offered by Dr. Burgess includes:
Botox® and Dysport®
Botox® Cosmetic, the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure in the US, is an injection treatment that can be performed in many areas of the face to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles. In addition to the cosmetic benefits, Botox Cosmetic may also be used for a handful of therapeutic purposes. Learn about Dysport for wrinkles.
CoolSculpting is the only FDA approved fat reduction treatment through cooling. This is completely non-invasive with little to no downtime for recovery. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment, but is used more to sculpt the body and help remove stubborn pockets of fat that do not decrease with diet and exercise.
Juvéderm® XC, Juvéderm Voluma, Belotero Balance®, Restylane®, Restylane Silk®, Restylane Lyft®
These dermal fillers are less invasive and are injected into specific areas of the face to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles. Appropriate for a variety of patients, certain fillers can be used to treat issues from nasolabial folds to “marionette lines” at the corners of the mouth. Other fillers are used to plump the lips and reduce the wrinkles around them, or instantly volumize the cheeks.
Silhouette Instalift is a break through technology procedure helpful in lifting deeper layers of the facial skin. This is beneficial in diminishing the appearance of aging. Great for both men and women who want a more immediate improvement through a minimally invasive procedure.
Kybella® is a non-surgical treatment now being offered at Burgess Plastic Surgery. It is used to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin. It eliminates fat cells for people that have submental fullness aka “double chin”. The cause of submental fullness can be a combination of weight gain, genetics or aging. Every patient varies on the amount of treatments needed, and Dr. Burgess will be able to help decide that. A treatment session can last 15-20 minutes and the exact number of injections depends on the amount of fat in the area.
Sculptra® Facial Rejuvenation
As we age, our facial volume decreases and makes us look older. Patients with excellent fitness can look older because of their thin faces. Sculptra is a facial volumizing agent that can restore lost volume that may last up to two years.
Ultherapy® uses microfocused ultrasound energy and is is the only FDA approved, non-invasive and non-surgical approach to tighten and lift the skin. This treatment has no downtime with significant results. Treatments to the brow, neck, and chin are most common.
Smartskin+™ : CO2 Laser
A micro ablative facial skin resurfacing laser that is customizable for different skin types and tones. Great for both men and women to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring and melasma.
We offer many different Thermi treatments in our office including ThermiSmooth, ThermiVa, ThermiTight, and ThermiEyes. This treatment, using radiofrequency heat, helps to tighten and smooth skin with little to no downtime. Results can be seen over the course of 6 months.
xeo® Cutera Laser
Whether your goal is for skin rejuvenation, skin tightening, or vascular issues, we are happy to be able to offer a customizable treatment plan with the xeo platform. This is a versatile laser that is technologically advanced, and is capable of accommodating your specific needs. Offered treatments with xeo are Coolglide, Prowave, Laser Genesis and Limelight.
Clear and Brilliant™
The Clear and Brilliant laser treatment can fit into anyone’s schedule and skin care regimen. A safe, non-surgical & non-invasive treatment, Clear and Brilliant helps to fight the natural effects that aging has on skin. Through successive treatments, the Clear and Brilliant can help improve tone and texture giving skin a radiant, youthful glow.
The Slimspec is used for reduction of cellulite when provided in consecutive treatments. We have found that patients who layer this with other body sculpting procedures such as CoolSculpting or ThermiSmooth, receive an even better result.
