Known for its exceptional reputation as a plastic surgery practice under the direction of Dr. Scott L. Tucker and Dr. Hampton A. Howell, Salem Plastic Surgery also leads the way with many popular – and immensely successful – non-surgical options for helping clients look and feel their very best.
The talented team of Donna Langley, RN, certified nurse injector and laser specialist, and Sherri Harvey, esthetician, are skilled at putting together personalized treatment and skin care plans for non-surgical patients, as well as designing maintenance plans to complement what the surgeons have already accomplished with surgical patients. For example, a patient who has undergone a facial procedure might need just a bit more refining after a procedure, or training on proper skin care to promote skin health as a regular routine. Both Donna and Sherri have professional training, and both simply love that they make a real difference in their patients’ lives!
One of the most well-known non-surgical procedures – Kybella – seems to be most popular starting in a patient’s 30s – on up until they find themselves in the situation where the skin no longer bounces back. As for the highly popular – and effective – Botox®, Donna says the practice is seeing an increase in patients in their late 20s interested in becoming more proactive, especially as they begin to see lines in the forehead. Men are catching on as well (shall we say “Brotox?”) after noticing their wives and girlfriends are looking more youthful and rested … and zeroing in on the reason! They, too, see the benefits of a more vibrant appearance both personally and in the workforce. The obvious advantage for both procedures is minimal discomfort and minimal recovery time; once a client is a regular Botox® patient, the process can be performed during a lunch break!
“It’s a very personal thing you’re assisting them with,” explains Donna, emphasizing the importance of the comfort level between the staff and patients, something Salem Plastic Surgery has been known for since first opening in 1990.
As the practice’s esthetician, Sherri, began her career in the skin care industry because she was personally experiencing some troubling skin complications and wanted to educate herself.
“I have rosacea, and determined the best treatment would be to become a licensed professional who truly understood the science behind the condition,” says Sherri. “I love the product lines we carry at Salem Plastic Surgery. Our product line has active ingredients only sold through a licensed practice.”
Sherri’s primary goal is to customize skin care regimens for every patient, utilizing her experience and knowledge to assist them in using these “cosmeceuticals” to their full advantage, and emphasizing the importance of diligence in continuing the regimen. Both Donna and Sherri know and understand the surgical side of the practice, too, which is helpful in assisting patients in determining whether a surgical or non-surgical option is truly best suited for their individual circumstances.
Both Donna and Sherri are also trained in CoolSculpting body contouring, which is a wonderful option for appropriate patients who don’t want the downtime and recuperation of liposuction and laser-assisted liposuction, popular surgical procedures frequently performed by Salem Plastic Surgery’s talented surgeons. The CoolSculpting process is quick and uses cold to destroy fat cells which the body then eliminates naturally – often reducing up to 20% of the fat in each treatment area. For patients interested in treating their sun-damaged skin, fine lines, pesky wrinkles, discoloration, and even facial veins, Salem Plastic Surgery also offers Laser Facial Rejuvenation with, again, quick turnaround and very little downtime post-treatment.
Other popular non-surgical procedures include Rejuvapen – the most powerful microneedle system available – which improves appearance with very little downtime and recovery time, and Perfect Derma Peel, the most effective medical grade peel available.
Completing Salem Plastic Surgery’s total customized care plan, Rachel Breedlove, patient coordinator, meets with patients after their consultations, reviewing financing options and post-treatment care to help them see that beautiful results are indeed within their reach – and are not just for the rich and famous!
