Hands Down, The Best Treatment

You may have a fresh face and youthful body, you could be giving away your age every time you wave hello. Your hands are subject to all sorts of use, all the time, not to mention environmental and age-related stresses. Their delicate skin pays a price.

 

But there is a solution. Radiesse, the dermal filler that we’ve used for years to plump areas of the face, is an effective option for hand augmentation. It plumps the hollow spaces that form on the backs of your hands, restoring volume and providing smooth natural-looking results. Radiesse is the first and only FDA-approved product for this use.

 

In one treatment, you’ll notice immediate improvement that can last a year or more. You may want to couple Radiesse with a laser treatment that minimizes the dark spots that often emerge on hands for sun exposure or natural aging.

 

Radiesse injections have been used for years to treat deep lines and depressions around the mouth. It has also been used to correct facial wasting, or hollowing. Because it’s bio-compatible, it can act to stimulate your body’s production of collagen, the natural material that provides structure beneath your skin.

Keep Your Hands Looking as Young as the Rest of You

Considering how much you use your hands, you may have forgotten to pay proper attention to them. Despite having a fresh face and youthful body, you could be giving away your age every time you wave hello.

 

But now, there is a solution. The FDA has just approved the use of Radiesse for hand augmentation. The dermal filler is perfect for plumping the hollow spaces that form on the backs of your hands, restoring volume and providing smooth natural-looking results. Radiesse is the first and only FDA-approved product for this use.

 

In one treatment, you’ll notice immediate improvement that can last a year or more. You may want to couple Radiesse with a laser treatment that minimizes the dark spots that often emerge on hands.

 

Radiesse injections have been used for years to treat deep lines and depressions around the mouth and facial wasting, or hollowing. It is a nonsurgical treatment that is bio-compatible and able to stimulate your body’s own collagen growth.

Get Your Glow Back with NEW Clear + Brilliant™

Clear + BriliantThis month I’m excited to tell you about our NEW Clear + Brilliant™ treatment. This treatment promises to give patients their GLOW back . . .and it delivers!

Clear + Brilliant (aka Clear and Brilliant) was developed by the same folks that designed the Fraxel line of lasers. Using the same revolutionary fractionating laser technology, Clear and Brilliant laser treatments expands skin care to not only address the signs of aging, but gives you the power to help prevent them. This unique laser system can help erase the early signs of photo-damage, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, rough skin texture and large pores.

Clear + Brilliant is usually performed as a series of treatments however the number of treatments you need is tailored to your concerns and skin care desires. Results are both immediate and progressive. Some patients may see results immediately with more visible improvements after a series of treatments. The treatment takes about 20 minutes to perform however we ask that you allow one hour for you appointment. After the treatments some patients may experience mild redness and mild swelling which quickly subsides. Mineral makeup can be applied after your treatment.

For more information about this treatment visit our website at www.drcovey.com or call us at (631) 878-9200 for a complimentary consultation.

Focus on Fraxel

We see it each autumn – summertime tans fade away but brown spots do not, fine lines have cropped up where they weren’t before, and skin tone and texture looks a bit worn out. Your skin needs rejuvenation!

For this and many other reasons, Fraxel treatments top our list of treatments in the fall. And with new improved technology in our Fraxel restore® DUAL Wavelength System we can rejuvenate your skin and give you smoother, fresher younger looking skin better than ever before.

Before and After Fraxel

How is this NEW Fraxel re:store DUAL technology different? Fraxel uses a laser to resurface damaged skin. With this new cutting edge technology, there are now two laser treatment modes. The Erbium laser treatment mode specifically treats concerns such as wrinkles or acne scarring that are deeper in the skin layers. The NEW Thilium laser treatment mode effectively targets sun spots, age spots, tone and texture, which are more superficial. These modes can be combined to offer you unparalleled resurfacing results, quickly and more comfortably than the older Fraxel re:store could.

This amazing laser system is quickly became one of the most popular treatment options and we’re not surprised!  Fraxel re:store DUAL is FDA cleared to treat wrinkles around the eyes, acne scars, surgical scars, age spots/sun spots (pigmented lesions), Melasma (irregular patches of brown spots usually found on the forehead cheeks, upper lip line and nose) and Actinic Keratoses (precancerous lesions).A quick side note: Don’t be fooled by imitations! Many doctors and spas use lasers from other companies that offer lasers that sound like the latest and greatest technology. A skin expert though will make the investment in the real deal – such as the actual Fraxel re:store® DUAL Laser or the Fraxel re:pair® Laser or both. Those who wish to take shortcuts will buy what is essentially a ‘box’ with many hand pieces available – in order not to invest in the lasers those hand pieces imitate. In the case of Fraxel, they’ll buy a “fractionating hand piece” and claim it’s as good and produces the same results.

Before and After Fraxel

The true Fraxel is a device capable of being individualized to each patient’s needs, operates safely and uniformly, and delivers outstanding results!

And, the ground-breaking laser technology in Fraxel re:store DUAL can be used on ALL skin colors and types to restore and rejuvenate the skin on many parts of your body including your face and the delicate skin on your neck, chest and hands.

With predictable, consistent results, and a simpler, faster and more precise treatment, Fraxel restore DUAL quickly resurfaces your skin and uncovers the skin of your youth with little or no downtime.

“Help! I want to look my best. . .”

I frequently get questions from my patients through my newsletter. The following question appeared in the May newsletter and since it is a common question that I get this time of year I thought I’d share it with you. . .

        “Help! I’m 48 years old and my daughter is graduating from high school in June. We’ll be seeing friends and family who we haven’t seen in years and I want to look my best! I have wrinkles around my eyes and mouth and dark spots on my face and hands. Which treatment will help me?” Joanne M., Hauppauge, NY

       Joanne, this is a common question and your treatment options depend on your skin and the type and severity of your wrinkles and brown spots. You may benefit from Thermage CPT, a non-surgical treatment which tightens loose and sagging skin anywhere on your body (including those delicate eyelids). You may also be a good candidate for one of our Fraxel laser treatments which remove brown spots and wrinkles as well as improve the tone and texture of your skin. It is possible that you may benefit most from injectables, such as Botox, Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane or Radiesse which help smooth your wrinkles (including your crow’s feet, the number “11” lines on your forehead and your smile lines) and restore volume to your face.  Plus we offer other laser, light and skin treatments including a combination of treatments that can help you.

Joanne, as you can see there are many options to choose from and coming to our office to be evaluated is the first step in designing a treatment plan that will be best for you.
