A new you may be on the horizon. Dr. Marc Wetherington has created a comprehensive, fully integrated laser facility in his plastic surgery practice and provides consistent results to Rome and North Georgia. His ‘state-of-the-art’ laser technology, beautiful facility, and excellent staff make Horizons Plastic Surgery a refreshing destination for patients seeking both surgical and ‘noninvasive’ technologies for facial rejuvenation and body contouring.
Rarely can one find such a sophisticated array of treatments in one practice. In practice for over thirty years in Rome, Dr. Wetherington understands the diverse needs of his patients and is dedicated to bringing them unparalleled experiences in beauty and comfort.
“For the last two years, I’ve invested in developing the ultimate beauty oasis with innovative, noninvasive laser and radiofrequency technologies that make possible the joys of more youthful, rejuvenated skin, and without lengthy recovery times,” Dr. Wetherington says.
So, what is new in skin rejuvenation? “This is a fantastic time for patients seeking facial rejuvenation with lasting results and minimal downtime,” Dr. Wetherington explains. “The key to improving our facial appearance is the removal of age spots and wrinkles by targeting unwanted dark spots and stimulating the growth of collagen.”
Intense pulse light (IPL) and the advanced laser technology known as PicoSure, combined with the recently developed Radio-Frequency Micro-needling system called Potenza, are part of his comprehensive approach to restoring the face, neck, chest and hands to a more youthful appearance. A variety of treatments comprise the Emerald Package, consisting of eight treatments performed over four to five short months. These treatments cater to the individual patient’s needs to yield unbelievable, long-lasting results that give their skin a healthy appearance and reduce wrinkles while tightening the skin.
Reliable body shaping and contouring treatments can now be performed with noninvasive technologies such as SculpSure (laser fat removal) and the radio-frequency face and body shaping device called TempSure. “These noninvasive technologies, along with the minimally invasive SmartLipo platform (laser-assisted liposuction), I now have both surgical and non-surgical tools to use in the management of unwanted fatty tissue,” Dr. Wetherington says.
Emphasizing this new facet of his practice, Dr. Wetherington continues, “These new technologies allow Horizons Plastic Surgery to offer a multitude of new services not routinely available in other practices.”
“The versatility of the CynoSure Icon makes it an important tool in my practice,” he elaborates. “Using Intense Pulse Light (IPL), it delivers a powerful blend of light to the skin, targeting dark spots and capillaries; its Erbium fractional laser is effective on surgical and acne scars, stretch mark treatment and wrinkle reduction. Furthermore, we can perform permanent hair removal anywhere on the face and body.”
Dr. Wetherington describes several more technologies and how he uses them:
The PicoSure laser delivers a trillion pulses of laser light every second to tighten and improve skin texture and reduce wrinkles. It is the superior system for laser tattoo removal. PicoSure creates pressure waves rather than heat, which minimizes potential damage to the skin.
The Radio Frequency Micro-needling system, Potenza, is a significant advancement in skin tightening and wrinkle reduction. It stimulates your body’s collagen and elastin levels to treat the advanced signs of aging. Skin looks younger and firmer with smoothed and improved texture. Get rid of old smoking lines and other facial wrinkles. RF Micro-needling provides more noticeable results than traditional micro-needling treatments performed in a salon.
Cynosure’s TempSure Envi technology heats deep into the skin to regenerate collagen and reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet, and smile lines. Other indications include tightening the skin of the neck, arms, tummy, and thighs.
SculpSure laser fat removal can help you achieve the figure you have always wanted. SculpSure is the best proven noninvasive fat body contouring treatment; it kills fat cells and tightens skin in targeted areas without shelving and neuropathy complications. “This is a great technology for the smaller areas of fat of the flanks, thighs and bra-rolls,” Wetherington explains. “The patient is made comfortable, and for thirty minutes, they catch up on Facebook while the fat melts away.”
“The CynoSure Smart Lipo platform takes liposuction to a new level of sophistication,” he explains. “A fiber inserted into the treatment area passes laser energy directly into the fat cells, disrupting them for easier removal using gentle suction. Additional energy pulses are used to warm the skin from the inside, thus tightening the skin envelope. This is great for the neck, arms, thighs and abdomen.”
