It may be chilly outside but it’s never too early to start thinking about how you want to look in summer. And don’t worry if you’re not ready to trade your oversized sweatshirt for a teeny bikini just yet. The experts at Graper Harper Cosmetic Surgery are offering three new treatments that will have you looking beach-ready in no time.
“Bringing new, proven technology to our patients offers them even more options for self-improvement”, says Dr. Robert Graper. “We only offer treatments that provide results and are a good value for them.”
Read on to find out the scoop.
Morpheus 8 RF Microneedling
Want a tighter neck, face or abdomen without surgery? Morpheus 8 RF Microneedling is the latest technology that tightens quickly and can last for years.
After applying numbing cream, providers use a machine that punctures the first layer of skin with lots of tiny needles, boosting collagen, reducing wrinkles and tightening the skin.
It can be used practically anywhere on the body, but many patients enjoy results on their face, body, abdomen, knees and arms. Patients typically see signs of improvement within a week, with more dramatic results following in the next three to four weeks, says Graper Harper’s Director of Skin Care Angie Thomas.
Patients can expect to receive a series of three treatments spaced four weeks apart, and there’s little to no downtime. Individual results may vary, but results are expected to last three to five years.

Motus AX Laser Hair Removal
Leave shaving, waxing and plucking behind in 2020. Motus AX isn’t your typical laser hair removal treatment: it’s pain-free, fast and safe for all skin types and skin colors.
Laser hair removal is one of the most requested cosmetic procedures in the country. It’s pretty simple: devices for hair removal beam highly concentrated light into hair follicles. The pigment in the follicles absorbs the light which then destroys the hair.
So what’s the difference between Motus AX and your typical laser hair removal device?
It can be used on all skin types. Other lasers were limited in their efficiency on people with darker skin, but not the Motus AX. It also works on fine hair, another challenge for other laser devices.
The Motus AX laser is also practically pain-free, as opposed to other lasers that cause significant discomfort. Most people only experience a slight warming sensation, Angie says.
It’s also quick — depending on the size of the area to be treated, Motus AX typically only takes five minutes or less. You also may be able to see results in fewer treatments than other types of laser.

PRP Hair Restoration and Repair
Thick, lustrous hair has long been considered a sign of youth. If you’re dealing with hair loss, thinning, breaking or lack of density, PRP Hair Restoration and Repair may be the solution.
Platelet-Rich Plasma — or PRP — is a treatment in which a patient’s blood is drawn, processed and injected into the scalp. This “liquid gold” treatment can help reverse the hair loss effects of stress, chemical exposure, heredity, hair extensions, menopause and more, says Stacey Venator, LPN, Graper Harper’s PRP Anti-Aging Specialist.
Looking for thicker eyebrows or a denser beard? PRP could work for that too.
“Anyone is a good candidate or PRP – men or women– of any age, any skin color or type, who are suffering from hair loss, hair thinning, hair damage, hair breakage, lack of density/thickness,” Angie says.
No matter which treatment you choose, the pros at Graper Harper will take good care of you, helping you look and feel your best.
“We’re excited to offer our patients these new treatments to help them look their best,” says Dr. Garrett Harper. “Recommending the right treatments and procedures along the way and supporting our patients in their journey for self-improvement through different stages of their lives is our goal.”
