Sanctuary Special Procedures

At Sanctuary Cosmetic Center, we offer several signature procedures designed to help you look and feel your best. Our team can help you learn more about these options during a consultation. 

Beverly Hills Lip Augmentation 

“Beverly Hills lips” has recently become the most commonly used term when referring to non-surgical lip augmentation. Non-surgical lip augmentation uses hyaluronic acid-based injectable dermal fillers. It’s indicated at any age, young or old, to treat lips that are thin, deflated, wrinkled, or have lost their contour. The result is enhanced upper and lower lips that are fuller and plumper with a defined lip contour. A variety of injectable fillers work well for lip augmentation. The safest and most ideal products are hyaluronic acid-based, such as Restylane and Juvederm. 

Why Beverly Hills Lips? 

Although lip augmentation using dermal fillers has been practiced for some time, Beverly Hills lips refer to using a particular technique using a specific combination of dermal fillers. Beverly Hills lips earned the name after celebrity model Kylie Jenner. Her lips, which she admits are regularly enhanced at her physician’s office, are the best example of Beverly Hills lips. 

For Beverly Hills lip augmentation in McLean, two particular products are used to achieve this result: Voluma and Juvederm Ultra. Voluma is the latest in the Juvederm range of hyaluronic acid fillers. Although Voluma is the specialty product for volumizing the midface with its thick, robust consistency, we’re opting to use its lifting qualities to lift the lips’ vermillion border and oral commissure. Combining both products, Voluma and Juvederm Ultra, creates a perfect outcome. Your lips will have an uplifted vermillion border, an enhanced cupid’s bow, a defined philtrum, and a fuller red part of the lip. Dr. Rostami has perfected Beverly Hills’ lips; its results produce pouty lips that look youthful, full, and sexy with a volume that contributes to the balance of your face. 

Results and Recovery 

Lip augmentation with dermal fillers typically lasts 3 to 6 months with instant results. On the other hand, Beverly Hills lip augmentation can last up to 12 months due to the long-lasting quality created by the combination of Voluma and Juvederm. 

The procedure has zero downtime. Since the lips are highly vascularized, you may experience a bit of swelling, making your lips appear larger and feeling tender for a few days. Certain patients may experience bruising, which will subside in a few days. Avoid consuming any aspirin or products containing aspirin to reduce bruising.

Kybella is the first FDA-approved product that can safely melt away chin fat, also known as submental fat or a “double chin.” Kybella in Washington D.C. is one of the hottest new procedures! Kybella injections offer a safe alternative to other products used in the past to melt body fat, such as animal enzymes. Such products had severe complications and had to be taken off the market after a few months. Kybella is a synthetic product made from deoxycholic acid. It’s very similar to the human gallbladder enzyme, which breaks down fat during digestion.  

Liposuction has been and remains a surgical alternative to improving the appearance of severe chin fullness. Kybella offers a safe, non-surgical approach to melting moderate fat in the chin area, an option patients didn’t have before Kybella became FDA-approved. 

The product is injected with very small needles into the chin during a short, 15-minute procedure. This method is relatively painless—even patients who dislike needles can receive treatment with little discomfort. The treatment must be repeated four to six times in one-month intervals for best results. Fortunately, the studies with Kybella show very few side effects. The major side effects reported with this product are hematoma (large bruises), edema (swelling), slight pain and discomfort, numbness and tingling (which resolved after few weeks), nodules (small lumps), and itchiness.

This combination treatment includes the following: 

3DEEP® Fractional Skin Resurfacing 

3DEEP is a 3-dimensional resurfacing treatment combining micro-fractional RF skin ablation with volumetric dermal anti-wrinkle effect – in a single pulse. This results in brighter skin, reduction of epidermal hyperpigmentation, improvement of skin texture, smoothing of wrinkles, and treatment of scars. Clinically proven 3DEEP RF technology is a minimally invasive procedure with minimal discomfort and minimal downtime.  

For many people today, their major skin appearance concern is aging skin. There are a variety of ways to treat aging skin with medical procedures, from full laser resurfacing to non-ablative treatments to deep peeling. One treatment that is growing in popularity is fractional skin resurfacing, which treats a fraction of the skin’s surface so that reservoirs of healing tissue are left to promote rapid healing and reduce downtime. 

Microneedling and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) 

Microneedling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine that treats the appearance of fine lines and acne scars and improves the skin’s overall appearance. 

During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process improves the appearance of softer wrinkles. Microneedling also creates superficial micro-channels, which can be used with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) to boost collagen production within your skin. 

The benefits of microneedling are a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. This treatment also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars, and stretch marks, and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin. 

Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.

Vampire Facelift 

Now becoming very popular in McLean, VA, the vampire facelift is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that treats wrinkles and volume loss and rejuvenates the face by improving skin tone and texture. It involves the injection of a patient’s own blood-derived growth factors, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), into various parts of the face. 

How Does the Vampire Facelift Work? 

PRP is a platelet-enriched blood plasma that contains high levels of growth factors. When injected into the face, PRP acts in the same fashion as dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm. You are a candidate for a vampire facelift if you are looking for longer-lasting facial results than those achieved with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm. The results achieved are ideal for wrinkle reduction, skin improvement, and volume. 

The vampire facelift can be combined with a volumizing dermal filler. At the same time, PRP tells your facial cells to grow new, plumper, younger looking skin. This will rejuvenate your face in a natural, subtle, and distinctive way. 

The Vampire Facelift Treatment 

Just like having your blood drawn at a doctor’s office, your blood is drawn into a tube, and the necessary platelet-rich plasma is isolated and activated to separate from other blood components. The PRP filler takes on a gel-like consistency and is injected to perform the vampire facelift. The procedure is painless and quick and can be done in less than an hour at our office. A topical anesthetic can be applied to ensure a pleasant experience. 

Results and Recovery 

The vampire facelift requires no downtime and has little or no side effects. Temporary redness and swelling will occur at the injection site and typically subside in a few hours. If you’re looking for a vampire facelift in Tysons Corner, VA, Sanctuary Cosmetic Center makes an excellent destination.
