Semaglutide, originally used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes, has received some notoriety over the past several years. Sold under the brand names Ozempic™, Wegovy™ and Rybelsus™, the transformative effects of semaglutide in obesity has garnered significant attention and admiration. Along with dramatic weight loss, some individuals suffer from so called “Ozempic face”, for which some people are interested in treatment options. Dr. Adam Becker at Triangle Facial Plastic Surgery offers a variety of options for this, including Morpheus8 RF microneedling and injectable dermal fillers. These make up two of the most common treatments because they can provide an effective, non-surgical approach and deliver a radiant and rejuvenated facial transformation in Raleigh, NC.

Your friends at Triangle Facial Plastic Surgery in Raleigh, NC have your back! We want your season to stay merry and bright! Follow these 6 tips that will be sure to help you glow up this holiday season!
- Exercise regularly – you will feel better physically and mentally. Regular exercise improves your mood, boosts energy, helps work off extra calories you’ll be consuming during get togethers and parties and promotes better sleep.
- Drink plenty of water! A hydrated body looks and feels good. Good hydration delivers benefits for the body, including maintaining a more youthful looking glow!
- Get plenty of sleep! The holiday season is packed with extra social activities, which are fun, but add that to everything else going on in your life, it may become stressful to keep up with it all. Don’t let yourself get run down, or you could get sick and miss out on the fun.
- Treat yourself to a facial! Facials are a quick and relaxing way to take a peaceful moment for yourself, while deep cleaning, exfoliating and moisturizing the skin will refresh your look and keep you glowing all season! The Hydrafacial is our most popular facial here at TFPS because it’s quick, customizable and leaves you with the most radiant glow!
- Plan your Botox and filler treatments with Dr. Becker in advance! Neurotoxins (Botox, Dysport and Xeomin) and fillers do a wonderful job with smoothing lines and wrinkles with very little downtime. While results from filler treatments are instant, neurotoxin injection results take full effect in 7-14 days.
- Don’t forget to WEAR SUNSCREEN EVERY DAY! Wear at least SPF 30 on your face, neck and areas not covered by clothing. Even though you’re not laying out in the sun this time of year, the sun’s harmful rays will still damage the skin and cause premature skin aging.

You may have heard that Autumn has been dubbed as “peeling season” in the aesthetic world. As temperatures get cooler and days get shorter, our sun exposure lessens. It’s the perfect time of year to undo summer sun damage with a chemical peel! While we offer a variety of facial peels here at Triangle Facial Plastic Surgery in Raleigh, our favorite and most popular chemical peel, the VI Peel, has a consistent track record for minimal downtime and gorgeous results!
We are here with Yelena, our licensed medical esthetician, to highlight and answer the most commonly asked questions we receive about VI Peel.
September is National Skincare Awareness month. Summer is behind us, and fall officially begins this week. Now is a great time to focus on a refresh with your skincare routine! Here are some skincare tips to improve the appearance of your skin and help you establish and maintain a healthy glow all season and beyond:
- Keep using sunscreen every single day! Daily sunscreen use protects us from the sun’s harmful rays and helps slow down visible signs of aging.
- If you discontinued using retinol products during the summer, get back to it. Retinol is great for reducing fine lines & wrinkles, as it increases the production of collagen. Additional benefits of using products with retinol include improving skin texture & color and fading age spots and sun damage.
- Reverse your summer fun with a chemical peel, BBL Hero, Halo, or CoolPeel CO2 laser treatment.
- Get moisture back into your skin with some extra hydration. We have some wonderful medical-grade moisturizers available. Ask Yelena which one is best for your skin!

During these hot and humid summer days, facial skin tends to be more oily, trapping pollutants and dead skin cells. Follow these five summer skincare do’s to help reduce your chances of skin conditions such as discoloration, breakouts and redness and maintain a youthful complexion! Individual results may vary.
Are you one of the many people wondering why darkened patches of skin on your face showed up out of the blue? Melasma is a facial skin condition that’s characterized by brown or blue-gray patches or freckle-like spots that appear on the forehead, cheeks, chin, upper lip and/or nose. It is more common in females and sometimes referred to as the “mask of pregnancy” because it can be triggered by hormones during pregnancy. Sunlight exposure plays a major role in triggering the appearance of melasma, along with birth control pills, HCG diets and hormone replacement.
We offer a variety of laser skin resurfacing treatments at Triangle Facial Plastic Surgery in Raleigh, NC to address various skin conditions.

Our goal is to recommend the treatment that will best address the concerns of our patients while delivering the most desirable, youthful-looking results.
While they all deliver healthy, glowing, younger-looking skin, determining which laser skin resurfacing treatment is best for you can be confusing.
