The latest in South Sound cosmetic procedures

We talked to area doctors about what is trending, new, and interesting on the cosmetic rejuvenation front. We found many approaches to achieving a more radiant, youthful you.

Popular Rejuvenation Options

  1. There are six Cascade Eye & Skin Centers throughout the South Sound that offer a variety of skin care services. The centers offer Botox, Dysport, laser treatments, and lifts. They also introduced new breakthrough treatments. The centers have experts who can help with a variety of skin problems.
  2. MultiCare MedSpas are in Gig Harbor, Covington, and Puyallup. It offers injectables, facials, plastic/reconstructive surgery and more. Short on time? Try the express peel treatments that take 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Ever heard of a Botox party? Derma Medical Spa in Olympia will come to you with injectables. If you invite more than five guests, you’ll get a discount.
  4. Aesthetica Clinique in Tacoma offers everything from injectable fillers, to scar revision, to laser resurfacing. Dr. Louis Potyondy, who runs Aesthetica Clinique with his wife, Jaime, is a laser liposuction expert.

What’s New?

We talked to Dr. Justin Piasecki at Harbor Plastic Surgery Center in Gig Harbor about what new or cutting-edge procedures in plastic surgery and skin care are likely to gain momentum. Here are the trends he identified:

  1. Expect the trend of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures to continue as new data come out supporting not only the improved safety margin of these approaches, but better, more customized results with easier recoveries and fewer complications.
  2. Most [skin care] products on the market contain one (or fewer) active ingredients proven by science to promote better appearance of the skin. Look for “greatest hits albums” in the near future, with multiple active ingredients with proven track records.
  3. Look for clever active cosmetic ingredients. One big-ticket item that has enormous promise is live algae — specific strains of algae have been shown to have remarkably high concentrations of bioactive ingredients that have tremendous efficacy on the skin — from a repair standpoint, a protection standpoint and certainly a cosmetic one.
