Treat Yourself Now: Schedule a Mommy Makeover

If it’s been about six months since you’ve had your baby, you may be feeling more like yourself. You may have lost most of your pregnancy weight and stopped nursing, you may be sleeping more, you may be back at work. But there may be a few cosmetic issues that have lingered, and really bother you. Most new moms aren’t prepared for some of the changes that their bodies will endure, but many of them are reversible.

 

Pregnancy and breastfeeding can take a toll on the skin and body, specifically the face and stomach. It is not uncommon for you to experience an array of conditions, including acne, acne scarring, melasma (darkened facial skin), cellulite, unwanted fat, unwanted hair growth, prominent facial blood vessels, loose skin, brown spots and stretch marks.

 

You may be feeling that you don’t have the time or the energy to address these issues right now, but your self-esteem and general well-being are important. A few simple cosmetic treatments can boost your overall mood more than you may imagine. Now, with a few holiday weeks coming up, you may find that you have some extra time to invest in yourself.

 

Here’s how I can help:

• For acne: pulsed dye laser, DermaFrac, microdermabrasion
• For melasma: Fraxel DUAL laser
• For cellulite: Cellulaze, Exilis Ultra 360
• For unwanted fat: SmartLipo Triplex, Exilis Ultra 360
• For unwanted hair growth: Laser Hair Removal, IPL Hair Removal
• For facial blood vessels: Diolite (KTP532) laser, IPL (intense pulsed light)
• For loose skin: INFINI™, Thermage CPT, Exilis Ultra 360, Fraxel lasers, laser wrinkle reduction
• For brown spots: Fraxel DUAL laser, IPL (intense pulsed light), Diolite (KTP532) laser
• For stretch marks: Fraxel lasers, Infini
• For acne scarring: INFINI™, Fraxel lasers, pulsed dye laser, dermal fillers
• For vaginal laxity: Ultra Femme 360

Summer Starters: Quick and Easy Treatments for Looking Your Best

Each summer, many of us spruce things up in our homes. We clean closets and curtains, change linens, switch pillows on the sofa. And when we’re done, we feel energized and recharged. Why not make the season the time to refresh yourself the way you do your surroundings?

 

Quick invigorators that will help you look rested and revitalized can be the perfect way to transition from spring to summer. Here are a few treatments to consider…

 

MicrodermabrasionA quick and convenient treatment, microdermabrasion rejuvenates and revitalizes your skin, leaving you with soft, youthful glowing skin after just one visit. This painless nonsurgical treatment is in high demand for reducing fine lines, wrinkles, acne, clogged pores, blemishes, dry skin, oily skin and other conditions. Microdermabrasion may be used on light or dark skin and on the face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, knees and hands, with outstanding results.

 

The treatment is 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.

 

Clear + Brilliant: Using the same noninvasive fractional laser technology developed by the makers of Fraxel, Clear + Brilliant laser treatments can help erase the early signs of photo-damage, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, rough skin texture and large pores. It is gentler on your skin than most other lasers and may be used on many areas of your body, including your hands, legs, face, neck, back, chest and arms.

 

LED Photomodulation: A novel technique for rejuvenating your skin, LED Photomodulation activates your skin’s natural rejuvenation process, without pain, side effects or downtime. It helps to repair sun damage, improve the appearance of age spots and the overall texture of the skin.

 

Laser Hair RemovalLaser hair removal is a safe, convenient and long-lasting treatment. Traditional techniques such as shaving, plucking and waxing provide only temporary relief, and electrolysis can be painful, time consuming and limited to small cosmetic areas. Side effects such as allergic reactions, ingrown hairs and scarring commonly occur when using these traditional hair removal methods. But you can avoid these hassles with this can’t-lose alternative.

 

BotoxWorry 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. Botox may be the right choice for you to treat stubborn persistent wrinkles and lines.

 

Call us today to schedule your summer pick-me-up. See you soon.

 

Do It Now: Ideal Winter Treatment #1

Before it’s swimsuit time, say good bye to waxing, shaving and plucking, once and for all. Laser Hair Removal is a safe and fast alternative to the discomfort and inconvenience of temporary methods, and it lasts.

 

You won’t want to be too tan before the treatment, so it makes perfect sense to come in for your first appointment now, while winter is in serious swing. The laser is effective on all areas of the body, including the upper lip, bikini area, underarms, chest, back and legs. And, the effects are progressive, so you’ll see continued improvement–including extra smooth skin–as time goes on.

 

So, there is no time like the present, particularly when it comes to Laser Hair Removal. Call my office today to schedule a complimentary consultation and learn more about my Spring Ahead plan for staying ahead and staying beautiful.

 

See you soon…and check back next week for my Ideal Winter Treatment #2.

Love Yourself First

This Valentine’s Day, you may be thinking about the people in your life whom you love. But don’t forget about you.

 

Being happy with ourselves is a struggle for many of us. For all sorts of reasons, we often have a hard time embracing our strengths, accepting our imperfections and knowing what to do to feel and be our best selves.

 

I often wonder how we fit into this landscape. We improve physical imperfections. Some might say that people should be content with what they look like, without the extra help that we offer. Over the years, we’ve found that this extra help, when you request it on your own, goes a long way to help you feel better about yourselves. And we are happy about making you happy.

 

So, this Valentine’s Day, take some time for yourself. If we can help you do that, let us know.

 

This month is an optimal time to consider our favorite mid-winter treatments, including SmartLipo Triplex, Fraxel Dual and Repair, Kybella, Thermage CPT and Laser Hair Removal.

 

If you’d like to talk with us about how we can help you feel and look your most happy, call our office for a complimentary consultation. We’ll help you determine what is best for you.

 

Meantime, Happy Valentine’s Day, and see you soon.

 

 

Laser Hair Removal: An Ideal Treatment for Winter

There’s no time like the present when it comes to beauty. And, there’s no time like the present when it comes to Laser Hair Removal, a treatment that is best done during winter.

 

Since skin needs to be untanned for optimal results, and you’ll need several treatments, it makes sense to come in for your first appointment now, while winter is in swing.

 

Before it’s swimsuit time, say good bye to waxing, shaving and plucking, once and for all. Laser Hair Removal is a safe and fast alternative to the discomfort and inconvenience of temporary methods, and it lasts. The laser is effective on all areas of the body, including the upper lip, bikini area, underarms, chest, back and legs. And, the effects are progressive, so you’ll see continued improvement–including extra smooth skin–as time goes on.

 

Here’s how it works: Laser light targets the pigment in the hair follicle, destroying the hair and causing it to fall out. A small handpiece is placed near your skin and sends light pulses into the hair. To protect your skin and ensure your comfort during treatment, a dynamic cooling device is built into the laser.

 

Call my office today to schedule a complimentary consultation. We’ll talk about whether Laser Hair Removal is right for you.

 

Meantime, we’re wishing you and your family a happy, healthy and beautiful New Year.

 

See you soon.

Beauty Time for New Moms

Pregnancy and breastfeeding are rough on your body, causing skin and shape issues that perhaps, you’ve never experienced before. Some of you may not be feeling like your old self, which can be disconcerting. So, after you’ve settled in to this new phase of life, it could be time to correct some of these concerns.

 

It’s not uncommon for young mothers to notice skin and stomach issues such 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.

 

You may feel that you don’t have the time or energy to take care of yourself, or that doing so is too indulgent. But, feeling and looking as great as you can is critical for your self-esteem and general well-being at this exciting time.

 

Here are conditions that new moms often face and treatments that work well to minimize then and help you feel more like yourself in the process.

 

 

We can help you figure out a treatment plan that will help minimize some of these conditions. Call our office today to schedule a complimentary consultation.

 

See you soon.

 

Easy Spring Refreshers

When the weather changes here in New York, you can see a visible change in people. They don’t hunch from the cold, they look up instead of down, they smile. Something about warmer temperatures makes us relax a little and feel better. Usually, we feel energized and recharged this time of year, when it’s not too cold and not too hot, either.

 

Why not celebrate spring with a few quick invigorators that will help you look rested and revitalized after a long winter. These treatments may be the perfect way to transition from spring to summer. Here are a few to consider…

 

Microdermabrasion: A convenient nonsurgical treatment, microdermabrasion rejuvenates and revitalizes your skin. It’s painless and effective, helping to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, acne, clogged pores, blemishes, dry skin, oily skin and other conditions on your face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, knees and even hands. Microdermabrasion may be used on light or dark skin, with outstanding results. 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 stimulates collagen production, improving the skin’s texture.

 

Clear + Brilliant: This treatment uses the same noninvasive fractional laser technology developed by the makers of Fraxel. It helps erase early signs of photo-damage, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, rough skin texture and large pores. Also, it’s gentler on your skin than most other lasers and may be used on many areas of your body, including your hands, legs, face, neck, back, chest and arms.

 

GentleWaves: This photo-based treatment activates your skin’s natural rejuvenation process, without pain, side effects or downtime. It helps to repair sun damage, diminish age spots and improve the overall texture of your skin.

 

Laser Hair Removal: Laser hair removal is a safe, convenient and long-lasting treatment that gets rid of the hassles of traditional techniques such as shaving, plucking and waxing.

 

Botox: Every day, as you use your face to show expression, “dynamic” wrinkles form. Worry lines, frown lines, laugh or smile lines, crow’s feet–these are all caused by common movements. Botox injections can safely and effectively soften the lines and reduce wrinkles.

Go Minimal

People are continuing to choose minimally invasive cosmetic treatments instead of undergoing traditional surgical procedures. The reasons by now are obvious–why endure incisions, anesthesia, pain and long recuperations when you don’t really have to? We, of course, agree wholeheartedly, and make it our mission to provide the latest, most effective and safest state-of-the-art treatments possible.

This past year, 14.2 million minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures were performed in the U.S., and the ones chosen the most are also some of our most popular. Here’s a Top Four list for 2015:

 

Botox: 6.7 million procedures were performed, up 1 percent from 2014 and 759 percent since 2000.

 

Dermal Fillers (Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, Voluma): 2.4 million procedures were performed, up 6 percent from 2014 and 274 percent since 2000.

 

Chemical Peels: 1.3 million procedures were performed, up 5 percent from 2014 and 14 percent since 2000.

 

Laser Hair Removal: 1.1 million procedures were performed, up 52 percent since 2000.

 

Each of these treatments will make a subtle and natural improvement in your appearance, in very little time. In keeping with our less-is-more philosophy, these popular procedures effectively restore your youthful and vibrant look–and boost confidence, too–without much effort.

 

If you haven’t seen us for one of these easy treatments, give us a call and schedule your complimentary consultation. We’ll devise a plan tailored just for you.
