Neuromodulators have been around for almost two decades. They treat dynamic wrinkles of your face, neck and declotte. With time they can begin to smooth out even the etched in lines on aging skin, especially when paired with other modalities offered at SALT. When neurotoxins are used in a preventative fashion they will prevent the customary fine lines we associate with the aging process. At SALT we offer:
Treatments take about 30 mins. It is relatively painless; numbing medication is available if requested. In some instances you may require a follow up in 2 weeks to asses your response to the injections. Results typically last 3 – 4 months.
It is important to allow the toxin time to settle. We recommend no vigorous or heated exercise for 48 hours. Be careful not to rub your face or wear a tight hat for several days. We will review this again in the office.
Dermal Fillers and Poly – L Lactic Acid
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers are injected beneath the skin to replace lost volume, enhance the natural curves of your face, or can be used to augment your natural features for a little extra drama. Dermal fillers are most often used in the cheeks, chin, jawline and lips. The effects are immediate and last for many months to years depending on the treatment.
Poly-L Lactic Acid – Manufactured and marketed as Sculptra, Poly-L lactic acid is injected beneath the skin where it triggers your body to produce its own collagen and elastin. As a bonus people who undergo treatment with Sculptra enjoy a beneficial change to the surface of the skin as well. Sculptra is an excellent option for a gradual full face treatment.
An appointment usually lasts about one hour. You can expect some mild tenderness at the injection site for a few days. Because we are beneath the skin there is always a possibility of some bruising. You should allow 2- 4 weeks between any dermal filler appointment and a big event.
You will be offered topical numbing agents for extra comfort if you would like. Nerve blocks are also an option in some areas to ensure you have a comfortable experience. These usually take 20 – 30 mins to work well.
You can expect some swelling and mild bruising for a few days. It is okay to use over-the-counter Tylenol or Motrin in this setting as well as ice. It is usually recommended to avoid alcohol for a few days as this can worsen these symptoms. It is best not to manipulate the filler unless you are specifically told to massage the area (Sculptra clients). After care will be reviewed in detail at your appointment.

Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal no longer has to be a painful experience reserved for the winter months. At Salt we can treat any skin type year round with painless hair removal with the Motus system by Cartessa. Common areas treated include the face, chest, back, legs and bikini / brazilian area. Most areas require 4 – 6 treatments spaced apart for optimal results. Our team has been expertly trained to effectively rid unwanted body hair to leave smooth, silky skin.

Treatments are quite variable in time. An area such as the chin will just take 10 mins while legs take closer to an hour. The area being treated should be recently shaved (not waxed!) and free of lotions as able. You cannot use sunless tanning lotions and get laser removal and while a tan is ok, a sunburn is not. The treatment is virtually painless and you can resume normal activities immediately. We assure you , your privacy and comfort are our top priority at Salt for all treatments.
Just like with any laser treatment, we recommend you stay out of the sun following your treatment. You may otherwise resume normal activities!
Microneedling is a non-surgical procedure that creates microchannels in the skin. The natural healing process will promote new collagen and elastin formation. Through this process skin will glow, fine lines are improved and skin tone evens. Paired with PRFM the results are even more dramatic.
Your appointment will take about 1 hour. Your face will be cleansed thoroughly to ensure the best results. A numbing agent will be used to ensure that you are comfortable through your procedure. This takes about 20 – 30 mins to work well. If you elect to have PRP added to your treatment, your blood will be drawn and PRP prepared during this time. The procedure itself takes about 20 mins.
Most people feel as though they have a sunburn for a day. You will need to stay out of the sun and refrain from exercise for 24 hours. Healing occurs in 3 phases – In phase 1 the immune system is triggered and you will notice some inflammation. (Blood flow to the area is increasing!) In phase 2 the wound is rebuilt with new cells and blood vessels. Finally in phase 3 the microchannels are replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels – a fresh, glowing face! As always, professional skin care line recommended and available at Salt.
PRP / PRFM:
PRP and PRFM offers a revolutionary, natural option to skin and hair rejuvenation. PRP stands for platelet rich plasma, the FM in PRFM stands for fibrin matrix. Platelet rich plasma is derived your own blood supply so the risk of reaction is almost none. These components of your blood stimulate natural growth factors that stimulate a healing, reparative process which will rejuvenate your skin, hair and tissues.
PRP is obtained by drawing your blood in the office. The blood will be spun in a centrifuge to separate out the platelet rich components. The platelets are then locally applied to the tissues you want to have rejuvenated with injections or microneedling.
PRP and PRFM are used to regenerate the tissues of the face and scalp at SALT. We also use PRP in our sexual wellness department. We will review all post care instructions with you carefully at your appointment. There is very little downtime associated with PRP injections usually.
