In the eternal quest for preserving natural beauty, one of the most important concepts that Scott Wells, MD, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, and his clinical staff at the practice holds is that skin is a fabric. In youth, skin enjoys the tight, elastic, and supportive characteristics of lycra. The attractive firm and defined contours of youth are due in large part to the shaping qualities inherent in this elasticity. As we age, progressive structural loss of the skin leads to fabric properties -- more like linen which wrinkles when worn. Slowing down and reversing this change is what SkinGym is all about.
Using the same principles we have come to understand in physical fitness, the concept involves a regimen of treatments, nutrition, and exercise to support, maintain, and even rebuild skin structure. Reconstructing skin’s ideal elastic draping qualities returns patients more to the way they looked in youth…..naturally. The “exercise” regimen involves proprietary sequencing and delivery of state-of-the-art laser, light and energy delivery devices, creating a membership model for regular maintenance.
The basic principle behind the SkinGym is preventive maintenance and ongoing treatment of the skin much like you would maintain the fitness of your body at a regular gym.
Taking care of the skin to stem the aging process is a lot easier and economical than trying to correct the anomalies after the damage has been done. It also helps minimize surgical intervention.
The SkinGym is a membership-based program that involves periodic visits to our medical aesthetic team at the who ensure that your skin is fit on an ongoing basis.
Your membership includes routine facial and skin treatments that could be augmented by laser or IPL treatments, Ultherapy, injectables, fillers as well as more advanced treatments such as Skin Refabrication which includes Active FX Laser Resurfacing.
After practicing and developing this model for more than a decade in private practice, Dr. Scott Wells believes that a natural look, what he calls “Beauty For Life™,” is definitely attainable. This is accomplished by delivering Bio Organic Skin Rejuvenation™ through a package of treatments as part of your membership. This technique and philosophy actually re-creates the microscopic structure of youth, and does not just camouflage the signs of aging.
As we like to say at the SkinGym: Make Your Skin Fit!
