The Rise of Tweakments in Washington DC – Everything you need to know.

Liquid Rhinoplasty DCAccording to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, minimally invasive cosmetic procedures have grown nearly 200 percent since 2000 and show no signs of slowing down any time soon.

This has given a rise to ‘tweakments’ – subtle, barely noticeable procedures that don’t require surgery and have minimal downtime.

Keep reading for some of our tweakments, and make sure you schedule a consultation to see which ones are best for your goals.


Quick, with limited downtime and often with immediately visible effects, injectables such as fillers and Botox remain incredibly popular.  If you’re looking to further sculpt through targeted fat reduction, you can also look to Kybella.

Tone Improvement, Fine Line and Wrinkle Reducers

Depending on your needs, we have several procedures to help lift, tighten, smooth and tone your skin.

Consider microneedling with PRP (aka the Vampire facial the Kardashians rave about), which reduces the signs of aging, minimizes scarring, boosts collagen production, reduces hyperpigmentation and pore size, prevents premature aging, treats stretch marks, minimizes the appearance of age spots, helps improve texture and improves the appearance of rosacea.

PRP injections may also work for you.  Your own PRP is injected into specific areas of the skin and acts as a matrix that promotes collagen growth and regenerates tissue.

Our latest procedure, the Plasma Pen, is exceptional at tightening and rejuvenating skin. For the most amazing videos and before and after photos, make sure you follow our skincare specialist Sara on Instagram: @skinbysara_bbps

Looking for a Body Contouring Tweakment?

Destroy fat cells in just 25 minutes using SculpSure. SculpSure works by heating up the fat cells above a threshold temperature to which they are no longer viable. The body then clears away the damaged fat and these cells will not regenerate.

SculpSure vs CoolSculpting: Which Non-Surgical Body Sculpting Procedure Is Right For Me?

Bruno | Brown introduces SculpSure to our DC area office, a minimally invasive procedure that can be done in less than 30 minutes.

With so many procedures, how can we choose? Dr. Bruno answers our most common questions SculpSure.


Q: Does it hurt during the SculpSure treatment?


There may be a mild sensation of the area being treated, but there is no pain. Patients are fully awake for the treatment, and it takes less than 30 minutes to have an area treated.

Q: Are the results permanent?

Yes, results are permanent as long as one maintains a reasonable range of body weight, healthy living with good dietary selections and an active lifestyle.  

Q: How much weight can I expect to lose?

According to the official SculpSure website, each 25-minute procedure can destroy up to 24% of targetted fat cells. It’s important to note that SculpSure, along with any other fat removal treatments (liposuction, Smartlipo, Coolsculpting), are not meant for weight loss but rather shaping and refining problem areas where fat deposits. Combined with a healthy lifestyle, good dietary selections, and an active lifestyle, one would expect some weight reduction. 

Q: What areas can I target with SculpSure?

Many areas are amenable to treatment.  The most common are the abdomen, hips, flanks and thighs.  

Q: Are there side effects for either CoolSculpt or SculpSure?

Both treatments are non-invasive methods of fat reduction.  It is not uncommon for patients to have bruising and itchiness after Coolsculpting. There may be some hypersensitivity of the area treated for a short time after the SculpSure, but patients will be able to go about their daily routine.

Q: What are the primary differences between SculpSure and CoolSculpt treatments?

SculpSure uses topical laser treatment to reduce the underlying fat whereas Coolsculpting freezes the fat.  The treatment time is much shorter for Sculpture, only 25 minutes. CoolSculpting takes an hour per treatment. Another difference between the two procedures is the possible side effects. After SculpSure, patients may experience a slight tenderness. After, CoolSculpt patients have reported tenderness, slight bruising and itchiness.
