4 Advanced Aesthetic Treatments With Amazing Results

While everyone’s body reacts to aesthetic treatments differently, most people need a little extra TLC after certain more advanced procedures.

At Amy Brenner, MD & Associates, we offer patients different aesthetic services to meet their needs. All our aesthetic treatments are minimally invasive and don’t require much downtime, but some treatments need a physician’s touch, and you may need to take it easy for a few days after your procedure.

Keep reading to learn about the different types of advanced aesthetics in Cincinnati we provide and how our practice works with you to promote quick recovery and amazing results.

Advanced Aesthetics in Cincinnati Consultation

While all procedures listed below may require you to take it easy for a day or more, they each provide wonderful results that can transform your appearance.

Before we ever schedule any advanced aesthetics in Cincinnati, we book a consultation with you to ensure the procedure is right for your needs. You can expect the following to happen during a comprehensive consultation at Amy Brenner, MD & Associates:

What happens during a consultation?

While we will detail what happens during each of our advanced aesthetics consultations below, you can prepare to discuss the following with our experienced aesthetic providers when you choose to meet with our team:

Discuss Medical History

We will review your medical history to determine whether a procedure will be safe for you. While we only perform minimally invasive aesthetic procedures, we want to consider your health and well-being when scheduling your treatment because your safety is the most important aspect of your care.

Determine Your Needs

Next, we’ll discuss the procedure you want and address your concerns. We always give patients realistic expectations so they are happy with their treatment results.

Book Your Appointment

After reviewing your medical history and determining your needs, we’re ready to book your treatment appointment! Before you leave, we will give you any pre-treatment information you need and discuss what you can expect to experience during your recovery process.

Advanced Aesthetics in Cincinnati

The following are the advanced aesthetic treatments we provide at our practice:

Kybella and LipoDissolve

Kybella is an advanced injectable that can reduce the appearance of mild to moderate fat under the chin. This FDA-approved injectable uses deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down dietary fat to eliminate fat cells. The cells Kybella destroys cannot accumulate or store fat again.

We also offer LipoDissolve, compounded Kybella, as an alternative Kybella treatment. It works in the same way Kybella does and contains the same active ingredient.

Why Choose Kybella?

Many people dislike the appearance of their double chin. The fat that accumulates beneath the chin is often stubborn and unaffected by exercise and diet.

Kybella is a great solution for people who have tried to eliminate fat beneath the chin on their own and have been unsuccessful.

Kybella Details

First, our aestheticians and medical providers will determine if Kybella is the right treatment for you. We’ll discuss the treatment process and recovery.

When we book Kybella, we schedule the treatment as a 2-treatment package. Most patients respond best to Kybella when they get 2 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart.

Kybella Procedure

Before we start the treatment, your physician will mark the area where the injections go. Next, we’ll apply lidocaine to the area and wait 15 minutes for its numbing effects to work. Then, we’ll clean the area and add a temporary grid to allow for precise injections.

The injections take 5 minutes to complete. Once the medical provider is done, they will remove the temporary grid with alcohol and apply ice to the area for 15 minutes.

Kybella Recovery

Most patients typically take 2 to 3 days to recover. You may experience the following side effects following Kybella:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Redness
  • Rarely, facial muscle weakness or uneven smile

You’ll start seeing results after the first 6 weeks and see final results after 12 weeks.


Our providers use sclerotherapy to treat small clusters of blue, purple, or red veins (spider veins). These veins often occur on the lower legs.

This therapy involves an injection into the affected veins, which causes them to collapse and fade.

Why Choose Sclerotherapy?

This advanced aesthetic treatment in Cincinnati is ideal for anyone who wants to eliminate the appearance of spider veins. These types of veins often appear as a result of the following:

  • Genetics
  • Hormonal shifts, including pregnancy
  • Prolonged standing and sitting
  • Sclerotherapy Details

First, we’ll discuss what to do and not do on the day of your appointment. If you have compression stockings, we’ll ask you to bring them to ensure they work for this procedure, or you can purchase them directly from us.

24 hours before the procedure, we’ll ask you to avoid shaving or applying lotion to your legs.

Sclerotherapy Procedure

We’ll start by having you lie on your back with your legs slightly elevated. We’ll clean the area with alcohol, then slowly inject the sclerosing solution into the affected veins. The solution causes the vein to scar, which forces blood to reroute into healthier veins. This procedure typically takes 30 minutes.

Most patients only feel minor stinging during the injections. While we can treat multiple veins during one appointment, we may make additional appointments to address all your needs.

Sclerotherapy Recovery

After your appointment, we’ll ask you to walk around for about 15 minutes to keep blood clots from forming. We also require that you wear compression stockings for the next two weeks to keep the treated veins compressed.

While you can return to normal activities after treatment, we ask that you don’t engage in strenuous exercise for 2 weeks and avoid sun exposure to the treated areas.

Most people see results 3 to 6 weeks after we administer the therapy. We will schedule follow-up appointments to determine if you need additional treatments.

Cosmetic Threading

Our practice uses cosmetic threads to tighten and smooth sagging skin as another option for advanced aesthetics in Cincinnati. This procedure is minimally invasive and lifts the face by using 3 different types of threads that create different results:

Barbed sutures help shape, tighten, and lift the cheek, jowl, and neck.
Smooth sutures treat fine lines, facial scar tissue, large pores, and skin crepes.
Twisted sutures help increase skin volume and treat deep wrinkles.

While cosmetic threading doesn’t often require downtime, it is performed by a medical provider, making it one of our more advanced options.

Cosmetic Thread Details

When you arrive for your appointment, the provider performing your procedure will cleanse your skin and use a special pen to mark where they are placing the sutures.

Cosmetic Thread Procedure

The provider will use a blunt needle to place threads in specific areas. Before treatment begins, we’ll apply numbing cream to the area and provide you with nitrous oxide gas you can self-administer if you experience discomfort. This procedure typically takes 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete.

Cosmetic Thread Recovery

Depending on placement, you may experience discomfort eating and talking for 1 to 2 weeks after treatment but can resume normal activity. You’ll see immediate results, and in the following 4 months, your body will start to make collagen while the sutures dissolve. You’ll continue to see results for the coming 12 to 15 months.

Pixel CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing

Pixel CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing is another minimally invasive procedure that can tighten and smooth your skin and neck. It works by removing columns of skin, these micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing response, leading to collagen production and skin rejuvenation This laser resurfacing treatment can help correct skin with uneven or splotchy tone, sun damage, signs of aging, scars, and large pores.

Pixel CO2 Details

Before your procedure, you’ll have a consultation during which we’ll assess your skin and make your treatment plan. Most patients get 1 to 3 treatments spaced 8 to 12 weeks apart. A single treatment takes 40 to 60 minutes.

Pixel CO2 Procedure

On the day of this treatment for advanced aesthetics in Cincinnati, we’ll apply numbing cream to the treatment area. If we are treating your eyelids, we’ll also place metal contacts to protect your eyes.

During the treatment, you’ll feel a warm, quick, snapping sensation. If you experience discomfort during treatment, you can self-administer nitrous oxide gas to help. We’ll also use our Zimmer cooler for extra comfort.

Pixel CO2 Recovery

Immediately after the procedure, we’ll apply a post-procedure mask. Before going home, you’ll receive detailed post-treatment instructions, and we’ll schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor your recovery.

Patients typically notice a change in their skin’s appearance after 10 days. The final results will be visible in 6 months.
