Pout Perfect

You may have heard people say that when you smile, you look prettier than when you don’t. I think that this is true, particularly when your lips are as beautiful as they can be.

 

As a prime focal point on the face, one that conveys expression, the mouth area needs to be kept in optimal shape. With age, your lips’ delicate skin is subject to many stresses and gives in to factors including collagen loss, fat loss and sun damage. As a result, tiny crevasses form around the perimeter and frown lines appear on the outside corners. Also, the lips themselves lose volume, as do the chin and jawline, which come to look hollowed out. The well-defined curve to your upper lip, the “cupid’s bow,” is sometimes lost, too. In all, the effect adds years to your appearance.

 

We have ways, though, to rewind the clock. And they are easy, very easy. With no downtime and immediate noticeable improvement, our nonsurgical treatments will help to restore youthful fullness and contour to your entire lip area.

 

We offer hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Belotero and more to boost volume and shape. HA is already in our bodies and is FDA-approved for safe plumping of the lips. At our office, we are devoted to transformations that look entirely natural and know that less is so much more when it comes to dermal fillers, especially when they are injected into the lips. We strive for soft, supple and sexy lips that are natural in size and shape.

 

Each of these simple fillers will enhance not only your look, but also your confidence, which is our ultimate goal. Now that is something to smile about.

 

Please call one of our offices for an appointment or a complimentary consultation.

 

See you soon.

 

 

Melt Away That Double Chin…For Good

If your double chin bothers you, you are not alone. Aging, genetics and weight gain all cause fullness in the area below and around your chin and neck. Finally, though, you can slim and contour this trouble spot with a new nonsurgical FDA-approved procedure, and we are proud to be one of the first in the area to perform it.

 

Called Kybella, the treatment is comprised of a series of injections that actually melt away, or destroy, the cells that store unwanted fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Once destroyed, the cells in the treated area can no longer store or accumulate fat, so re-treatment is not expected. The result is a balanced facial appearance that looks young and fit.

 

After the Kybella treatment, which typically takes about 20 minutes, you can immediately return to work or your normal daily activities. You’ll experience no downtime.

 

Come to our Fall Beauty Seminar next month to hear more about Kybella and see live demonstrations, computer imaging and real patients.

 

Call (631) 878-9200 to register. Don’t wait, as seating is limited and expected to be filled to capacity.

When: Saturday, October 17th at 10:30 am.

Back to School Means Back to You

The school bells are ringing again and for moms, the sound means one thing–extra time. With kids back in the classroom, why not devote a little attention to yourself this fall?

 

Whether you are a new mother enduring the lingering effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding or a seasoned mom who forgets to put herself first sometimes, you could be a candidate for our Mommy Makeover, a collection of treatments that will help you feel and look as terrific as you can.

 

It is not uncommon for young mothers to experience such conditions as acne, acne scarring, melasma (darkened facial skin), cellulite, unwanted fat, unwanted hair growth, prominent facial blood vessels, loose skin, brown spots and stretch marks. Experienced moms may feel that they look tired and worn.

 

Wherever you are in life, I will customize a specific plan that will address all of your post-baby or super-parent beauty concerns in a way that is easy to accomplish, convenient and stress-free.

 

Here are a few possible conditions and treatments for all mommies, new and not-so-new:

 

Please call our office for a complimentary consultation. New seasons are a time for positive change, and we are ready to help you transform, physically and emotionally.

Out, Spot!

Some blemishes can make you feel as bad as Lady Macbeth did, but fortunately, some spots can be banished.

 

Dark spots and blotchy patches, whether brown, red or pink, large or small, are all classified as hyperpigmentation. Meaning, simply, extra pigment, dark skin discoloration can appear anywhere on your body. Typically, sun exposure and aging are to blame.

 

Various types of hyperpigmentation can emerge, due to different triggers, and we have treatments for all of them. Take a look below at which type you may have…

 

Melasma: Look for light to medium brown discoloration, usually on the cheeks, sides of your face, upper nose, forehead and lips. You may see splotchy patches in irregular sizes and shapes. Often, melasma appears when you are pregnant or have just gone through childbirth (it’s sometimes called “The Mask of Pregnancy”). A hormone surge during these times can cause the changes in your skin. Combined with excessive sun exposure, the effects may be pronounced.

 

            Our treatment: Fraxel Dual Laser

 

Sunspots, Age/Liver Spots: These are light to dark brown in color, and appear on the face, chest and hands. Usually, they are small and flat and caused by sun exposure.

 

            Our treatment: Fraxel Dual Laser, IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), Diolite

 

PIH: Look for flat pink, red or brown spots on the face. If you’ve had inflammatory acne, you may be prone to this sort of hyperpigmentation.

 

            Our treatment: Light salicylic acid chemical peels

 

Freckles: You may notice small brown, red or black spots on your face, chest or arms. Sometimes, they appear quickly, after a long day in the sun, even with sunscreen.

 

            Our treatment: Fraxel Dual Laser, IPL, Diolite

 

Facial Blood Vessels: Vascular lesions, commonly called “spider veins” are extra blood vessels that are superficially located in the skin. Often, the skin of cheeks, chin and forehead appear red.

 

            Our treatment: Diolite, IPL

 

Our best advice for minimizing spots, of course, is to stay clear of the sun and wear sunscreen–and more sunscreen–every time that you go out, even when it’s cloudy.

 

For a specialized treatment plan crafted just for you, call our office for a complimentary consultation.
