Cosmetic Procedures, More Popular than Ever

The market for cosmetic surgery, facial aesthetics and lasers is expected to practically double in size between 2016 and 2022, according to iData Research, a pharmaceutical market research firm based in Vancouver, British Columbia. Estimates suggest that people will spend nearly $3 billion during that time, testament to the safe and effective results that cosmetic treatments provide.

 

I am excited by all of the possibilities that exist now and by the technological advancements that will continue to emerge. Take, for instance, the range of fillers that we now have to keep you looking your natural best. There are products for fine lines, deep lines, wrinkles around your nose and your mouth, hollowed areas of your cheeks and eyes, and even different ones for your hands. Some fillers add volume; some create structure. We have the ability to address different planes of the skin with different treatments. The options are numerous, and the ultimate effects are more subtle than ever.

 

When it comes to unwanted fat, we now can remove it with SmartLipo Triplex and also tighten skin afterwards with assorted lasers. In addition to popular areas such as the abdomen, love handles and thighs, we can also treat smaller areas like the chin, inner knees and ankles.

 

Advancements abound, and we are proud to offer you the latest state-of-the-art treatments as they arrive.

 

Meantime, remember to save the date for our upcoming Fall Beauty Seminar, where you’ll hear about the newest procedures, and see some of them in action. You’ll learn about Infini, the revolutionary nonsurgical treatment that dramatically reduces sagging skin and wrinkles on the neck. You’ll get to see a live Liquid Facelift treatment and a KYBELLA procedure that melts fat and reduces the “double chin.” You will even be able to “glimpse the new you” on our computer imaging system and take a peek at how restored and fresh you’ll look after treatment.

 

So, save THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18th AT 6:00 PM, and come see us at the Atlantis Banquet & Events Seastar Ballroom, located next to the Long Island Aquarium at 431 East Main Street in Riverhead.  Free Valet Parking available. Register Online.

I Never Thought I Would Do This

Thank you all for attending our Spring Beauty Seminar this past weekend. I was happy to see so many of you there and am hoping that you learned all that you could about the latest cosmetic treatments that we offer. I look forward to seeing you in our offices in the coming weeks, particularly as the temperatures climb. I like to call spring “The Beauty Season,” since so many of you want to look your best as you spend more time outdoors.

 

For those of you who are considering our nonsurgical cosmetic procedures for the first time, I understand that the idea of it may get in your way. Mainly, you may not want anyone to know that you’ve been in for treatment.

 

So, here are a few first-time procedures that no one will know that you’ve had (and that you will forget that you’ve had by the time you’ve left our office). With no incisions, anesthesia or downtime, your treatment will be our little secret, if you want it to be. All that will be obvious is your rested and youthful look.

 

Botox: Worry lines, frown lines, laugh or smile lines, crow’s feet …these are all “dynamic” wrinkles caused from years of living and using facial muscles to show expression. The more emotion we show, the deeper the wrinkles and lines can be. Botox injections can safely and effectively soften lines and reduce wrinkles. Botox is also known as “cosmetic denervation” – a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that many patients have come to depend on to show results in a few days. The procedure takes under ten minutes, too.

 

Dermal fillers: Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane (Defyne, Refyne, Silk and Lyft) and Voluma are a few of the FDA-approved treatments that restore fullness and contour that has diminished with age. These treatments are quick and easy, and show immediate results in all areas of the face, including cheeks, mouth, chin, nose and lips, as well as the hands.

 

Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is simple, convenient and popular among patients showing early signs of aging, sun exposure and other facial imperfections. It not only exfoliates the skin’s surface, but also promotes new cell growth in the basal, or deepest layer of the skin. It also cleans the pores and stimulates collagen networking to further improve the skin’s texture. After the treatment, your skin will have a new fresh-looking glow.

 

Intense Pulsed Light: If your facial skin has lost its youthful glow, Intense Pulsed Light Rejuvenation can help to restore a vibrant appearance. The procedure delivers broadband light through the skin, helping to decrease redness, pigmentation, lines and pore size, and improve the overall texture and tone of your skin. IPL can be used on the face, neck, chest, hands and legs. Also known as a “photofacial,” the noninvasive treatment treats imperfections including birthmarks, spider veins, rosacea, fine wrinkles, sun and age spots, vascular lesions and acne and acne scarring.

 

For new and return patients, please call our office to schedule a complimentary consultation.

 

See you soon.

 

What is Fat, Anyway?

It’s what men and women talk about, complain about and feel bad about. It is a feature that often embarrasses us, makes us feel insecure, and affects our behavior in negative ways. Being overweight is complicated for many people, and it causes powerful emotions. But what exactly is going on, physiologically, to have such impact on people, mentally? What is fat, anyway?

 

Another term for it is adipose tissue, which is made up of fat cells, a unique type of cell. Imagine a cell to be a tiny, microscopic plastic bag that is filled with an oily substance. Generally, fat is found underneath the skin. There’s also some on top of each kidney, some is stored in the liver, and an even smaller amount is in muscle. We are born with a certain number of these cells, and at birth, our bodies stop making them. If we gain weight, the cells become bigger; if we lose weight, they get smaller.

 

Your weight is determined by the rate at which you store energy from the food that you eat, and the rate at which you use that energy. When you use it, you are breaking down the fat, and the cells become smaller. Most experts agree that the way to maintain a healthy weight is to eat a balanced diet of appropriate amounts of carbohydrates, fat and protein; eat about 1,500-2000 calories a day; and exercise regularly.

 

When men gain weight, they tend to carry body fat in the chest, abdomen and buttocks, producing an “apple” shape. Women tend to carry fat in the breasts, hips, waist and buttocks, creating a “pear” shape.

 

But what do you do if diet and exercise don’t help you lose unwanted fat? We suggest that you consider laser-assisted liposuction, or SmartLipo Triplex, which is a way to remove fat cells, for good. Once they are removed, they are gone forever. Laser-assisted liposuction works on small, localized areas of fat on the face and body. Areas that can be treated with laser-assisted liposuction include the face, neck, jowls, abdomen, hips, waist, arms, back and male breasts. As the laser comes into contact with the fat cells, its heat causes the cell membranes to swell and burst into fatty oil, melting away the fat.

 

Also, the laser triggers the production of collagen, which gives skin its strength and firmness. After SmartLipo, you will have lost inches and your skin will be tightened.

 

Come talk with us to find out if SmartLipo is right for you. Schedule your complimentary consultation today.

 

And remember…save this coming Saturday…and make your reservation asap for our Fall Beauty Seminar. Come hear about what’s new in cosmetic treatments. All attendees will receive free gifts and special discounts and drawings will be held for free procedures.

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.
