Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures Q & A

How does Botox work?

Botox is one of the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedures in the United States because it’s simple and effective. The injection helps reduce signs of aging by relaxing the muscle under your skin to prevent the folding that creates fine lines and wrinkles.

Dr. Kauffman uses Botox to improve the look of crow’s-feet and frown lines. The injections only take a few minutes and don’t require any downtime afterward. You should begin to notice an improvement in your appearance within a few days after the injections, and the effects last up to four months.

What are fillers?

Fillers are another nonsurgical cosmetic tool Dr. Kauffman offers at PRP in Philadelphia to reduce signs of aging and improve your look. As you age, the fat under your skin decreases, which allows the facial muscles to work closer to your skin, deepening lines and wrinkles. Fillers act as replacement fat to plump up the skin.

Dr. Kauffman uses fillers to:

  • Soften creases and lines
  • Add volume to cheeks and lips
  • Plump up shallow contours

Fillers only take a few minutes to inject and the results are immediate. With good care, you should be able to maintain your look for up to a year.

How can PRP improve my skin?

If you’re looking for a natural solution to improve the health and look of your skin, PRP may be the way to go. In addition to helping heal wounds and injuries, the proteins and growth factors in platelet-rich plasma also stimulate the production of collagen, the protein that gives your skin its strength and elasticity, for natural rejuvenation.

Dr. Kauffman combines PRP with microneedling, which is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that places tiny puncture wounds in your skin, to enhance the effectiveness of treatment. He uses PRP with microneedling as a treatment for:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Scars
  • Dark circles under the eyes

The best part is the results you get after PRP injections are permanent.

How can PRP help with hair loss?

Dr. Kauffman also uses PRP as a treatment for hair loss. When injected into the portions of your scalp affected by hair loss, the growth factors in PRP increase the growing phase of your hair cycle to improve hair growth and follicle health. To get the best results, you may need a series of treatments set over a two year period.
