If you would like improvement to a particular area but would rather not undergo surgery, these non-invasive options can provide excellent results. Treatment sessions or one-time procedures take less than an hour, use little to no anesthesia, require little to no recovery time, cost significantly less than surgery, and can give you the subtle change you’ve been looking for.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedures for wrinkle reduction because it is safe and effective. It is most commonly used in the forehead area and between the eyes to reduce or eliminate “frown lines” and on the corner of the eyes to correct “crow’s feet.” BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into the facial muscles that cause wrinkles and works by limiting their movement. Many patients fear they will look “frozen” as a result, but Dr. Schlechter has the knowledge and experience needed to strategically place these injections so you can achieve the most natural-looking, long-lasting results.
Facial micro needling is designed to minimize the most common signs of aging and improve the tone and texture of the skin. This procedure involves pricking of the skin with sterile needles to promote collagen production, which encourages healthy skin growth. Acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and damaged skin are improved over time.
If you have fine lines and wrinkles or “sunken” cheeks, injectable facial fillers are a fast and effective remedy. Unlike BOTOX® Cosmetic, which limits mobility to the facial muscles, injectable fillers add volume to the face to literally fill out wrinkles and facial hollows. The final result is a more youthful appearance that can last from six months to a year depending on the filler you choose. Spring Ridge Plastic Surgery offers a wide range of brands, including JUVÉDERM® XC, RADIESSE®, Restylane®, Sculptra® Aesthetic, and BELOTERO BALANCE®. Dr. Schlechter will determine the option that will give you the best results you want in the areas that concern you most.

If you have excess fat in your abdomen, flanks, upper arms, neck, back, hips, thighs, knees, or ankles, you may be a candidate for a non-invasive form of fat reduction and skin tightening. Spring Ridge Plastic Surgery offers two systems that accomplish both: SculpSure® and truSculpt™. In as few as two treatment sessions, laser technology works to destroy the fat through the skin without causing pain. Over a period of six to eight weeks, your body continues to absorb the destroyed fat cells, and you will notice your clothes fit better and the treated area is smoother.
If you have unwanted hair on virtually any area of the body, the Soprano Laser Hair Removal system can painlessly and permanently remove it. Stray hairs on the chin and lip can be treated as well as thicker hair on the legs, back, and beneath the arms. The surrounding skin remains unharmed as the hair follicles are individually targeted and quickly destroyed.
If the tone and texture of your skin is dull, wrinkled, and inconsistent, laser skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive option that resurfaces the skin. Noticeable blood vessels, freckles, age spots, and acne scars are diminished with laser technology as the skin is simultaneously tightened. Healthy, new skin forms over the next few weeks to restore a youthful glow.
If fine lines and wrinkles on your face and neck are your main concern, laser skin tightening is the best alternative to a surgical facelift. Heat from the laser stimulates collagen production in the deep layers of skin to non-invasively tighten and smooth away wrinkles. In just four treatment sessions, each performed a few weeks apart, you will see a significant improvement. We have several options available depending on your unique skin type and desires.

Spider veins on the legs and face are common in both men and women. Laser technology with the CUTERA® excel V™ system causes the blood in the inessential veins to coagulate and later be absorbed by the body. The treatment is painless and rids the body of the unwanted veins permanently. More than one treatment session may be needed to achieve complete elimination of the damaged veins.
Spring Ridge Plastic Surgery has a wide selection of skincare and cosmetic products available, including some of the top brands in the industry. Our products can help you maintain your treatment results, reverse existing damage from the sun and the environment, and prevent damage and accelerated aging by protecting your skin. Our staff will help you choose the skincare products that meet your individual needs.
A chemical peel is another skin resurfacing option that corrects uneven skin tone, wrinkles, age spots, freckles, and acne scars. A specialized chemical solution removes the damaged layer of skin to encourage skin cell regeneration. As your skin heals over several weeks, the results continue to improve. The skin becomes more clear, even, and youthful.
