Beware the Dreaded Droop

It is not something that you write in your calendar: “Skin sagging, July 30.” It is something that creeps up over time, sneakily, until one day, you notice.

 

The skin that used to appear taut and firm has begun to droop. You know that your body’s production of collagen has slowed, but you didn’t realize what exactly this process would do. Collagen, the natural anchoring substance under the skin, gives you a youthful and lifted appearance. But as it depletes, whether by simple aging or hereditary and environmental factors, your skin may begin to sag. Combined with the gradual decrease in elastin, the material that provides suppleness and resilience, your skin loses its tension and spring.

 

No area of your body, it seems, is safe. You may experience sagging in the face, neck, eyelids, abdomen, arms, legs and buttocks. While no nonsurgical treatment can reverse the condition entirely, many can drastically improve your appearance. We offer safe and effective treatments that will help your skin look younger and tighter.

 

Here are a few:

 

Thermage CPT is a thermal lift that is particularly effective for reducing loose skin around the eyes.

 

Exilis Ultra 360 is a treatment that combines radiofrequency and ultrasound to offer maximum power and targeted control, so that we focus on only the areas that need help.

 

INFINI is a high-energy radiofrequency device that smooths wrinkles and plumps skin. It is also particularly helpful for minimizing acne scarring.

 

Fraxel Repair is a laser that works on reducing deep lines, hard-to-erase lip lines, pronounced photodamage, sagging face and neck skin, facial wrinkles and discolorations, age-related/sun-damaged rough skin texture, acne scars and surgical scars.

 

SmartLipo Triplex is a laser treatment that removes fat and tightens skin at the same time.

 

Kybella is a treatment that we use to minimize submental fat, more commonly known as the “double chin.”

 

If sagging skin is a concern for you, come in and talk with us about how we can help you feel better. Our consultations are complimentary, so call today to schedule an appointment.

 

See you soon.

 

Recharge Those Eyes

When you really want to know how someone feels, you look into his eyes. They can often hold the answers to many mysteries. Unfortunately, they can be a lot more obvious about your age.

 

The skin surrounding your eyes, because it is so delicate, is at risk for a multitude of cosmetic problems that make you look older than you are. And, because this area is involved in facial expression, the natural movement of the skin causes lines and wrinkles to form over time. Crow’s feet, additional lines and wrinkles underneath the lower lashes, dark circles, hollowing, drooping lids and puffiness all contribute to a tired appearance. Perhaps you’ve tried creams that claim to tighten skin or cold tea bags and cucumbers that temporarily reduce fluid retention, but the concerns remain.

 

We offer a range of nonsurgical treatments that will help return a well-rested look to your eyes and therefore, your face. Depending on your individual needs, we can craft a personal plan that will help you look refreshed and more youthful, with minimal downtime and recuperation.

 

Take a look at some of our most popular eye treatments:

Eyes: Windows To Your…Age

No one really wants to reveal his or her age. But there are places on our bodies that can give secrets away, namely, the eyes.

 

The skin surrounding your eyes is extremely delicate, making it susceptible to cosmetic problems that make you look older than you are. Also, because it moves so much during facial expression, lines and wrinkles form over time. Crow’s feet emerge on the outside of the eye and creases appear underneath the lash line, for instance. Add dark circles, hollowing, drooping lids and puffiness, and you will appear tired and worn. Perhaps you’ve tried creams that claim to tighten skin or cold tea bags and cucumbers that temporarily reduce fluid retention, but you are still not happy when you look into the mirror.

 

We offer a range of nonsurgical treatments that will help return a well-rested look to your eyes and ultimately, your face. Depending on your individual needs, we can craft a personal plan that will help you look refreshed and more youthful, with minimal downtime and recuperation.

 

Here are a few of our most popular eye treatments:

Please, Do Not Feel Bad About Your Neck

So many breakthrough treatments are on the horizon, and as always, my goal is to provide you with the most effective state-of-the-art cosmetic care in the area.

 

I know, from treating you, that fullness from fat, crepey skin and visible band lines cause plenty of frustration. We have five ways to minimize the appearance of these conditions, so you have choices. There is no need to feel bad about your neck any longer.

 

First, the latest FDA-approved treatment is Kybella, a series of injections that eradicates fat cells permanently from the chin and neck area. We have seen great success with this procedure. Then, there is Exilis Ultra 360, which tightens, firms and tones loose and sagging skin and reshapes and melts stubborn fatty deposits. It is perfect for the chin and neck, as well as many other parts of your face and body. Thermage CPT, known as a nonsurgical facelift, is the most effective lift treatment for a multitude of concerns, yielding dramatic results without incisions and recuperation. Next, you can choose Fraxel Repair, a laser skin rejuvenation treatment that targets and improves sagging neck skin. Finally, we offer SmartLipo Triplex for the area under the chin. With this laser procedure, your fat cells will be melted and sucked away, leaving a newly shaped silhouette.

 

Call our office to schedule a complimentary consultation, and I’ll talk with you about the range of possibilities.

 

See you soon.

 

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 TriplexFraxel Dual and RepairKybellaThermage 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.

 

Do It Now: Ideal Winter Treatment #3

Touted as the first nonsurgical facelift and one of the most popular anti-aging treatments in use today, the Thermage CPT thermal lift will actually transform skin all over your body. It will tighten loose skin on the eyelids, under-eye areas, abdomen, arms, legs and even your sagging buttocks. One of the most effective lift treatments for a multitude of concerns, it yields long-lasting dramatic results without incisions and recuperation.

 

Known as the go-to treatment for eyelid rejuvenation, Thermage CPT reduces “hooding,” improves texture, and tones and softens fine lines and crow’s feet. This treatment is a safe, effective and unique option for the delicate eye area, and is also used to redefine facial contour and reduce excess wrinkling and sagging of skin on the hands.

 

While you’ll see initial results within a few weeks, long-term tightening, smoothing and improved tone and texture occur over time. Studies show that the results can last from several months to several years, depending upon the individual aging process.

 

So, there is no time like the present, particularly when it comes to Thermage CPT. Call my office today to schedule a complimentary consultation and learn more about how to stay ahead and stay beautiful.

 

See you soon.

 

Adding More Comfort to Your Experience with Pro-Nox

We know that some of you become anxious with one step inside a doctor’s office. It’s not uncommon for people to experience the “White Coat Syndrome,” a heightening of nerves and increased heart rate. We have always had several ways to help you relax–depending on the procedure–but now, with Pro-Nox you are in total control.

 

Pro-Nox is a mild form of nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas.” Some of you know about it from the dentist’s office, where it has been used for years. But Pro-Nox is new in two significant ways: it is a mild form (50 percent nitrous oxide/50 percent oxygen) and you take in as much as or as little as you need, through a simple tube that you hold yourself.

 

It’s effective enough to take the edge off if you are fearful of injections or want to forego a stronger anesthetic for longer or more involved procedures like SmartLipo or Thermage. You now have the option to drive yourself home after certain treatments that in the past would have required that you be picked up. The effects of Pro-Nox are immediate, and they wear off just as quickly. And don’t worry that you are administering it yourself–the system is fixed so that you can only take in the safest amount.

 

So, next time you come in for a cosmetic treatment, be sure to ask us about Pro-Nox. If anxiety or the fear of discomfort has discouraged you from having a treatment, now you have a solution.

 

Call our office for a complimentary consultation, and we’ll devise a treatment plan tailored just for you.

 

See you soon.

 

Uncover That Neck

Many of you tell me that you are happy to wear turtlenecks in the fall and winter–but maybe you don’t have to. Because the skin on the neck is so delicate, it’s prone to changes in tautness, smoothness and color, particularly as we age. There are many ways, though, that we can improve its appearance.

 

Some of you may notice little lines or bands that run horizontally around the neck or vertical cords (platysmal bands) that become prominent. Also, when collagen and elastin decrease over time, the skin on your neck may sag and look crepey. Changes in color may include brown spots and pigmentation, particularly on the decolletage, the chest area. Or, you may see red, blotchy or wrinkly skin, most often due to excessive exposure to the sun.

 

There are some measures that you can take at home, such as moisturizing and using SPF and retinol products, as you would on your face. But if you are still not happy, come see us. We have many ways to help your neck look beautiful and more youthful. Here are a few:

 

Infini: This radiofrequency microneedling treatment tightens the neck and jowls and reduces crepiness, too.

 

Thermage CPT: This tightens skin on the neck and jowls, non-invasively. It’s often called a “Thermal Lift” treatment, and it’s highly effective for many areas of the body.

 

Exilis Ultra 360: Another thermal treatment, Exilis Ultra 360 tightens skin on the neck and jowls and reduces fat, non-invasively.

 

Fraxel Repair: This laser treatment resurfaces and tightens the skin on the neck and jowls and reduces crepiness and hyperpigmentation (brown spots). It is the procedure of choice for deep lines, hard-to-erase lip lines, pronounced photodamage, sagging face and neck skin, facial wrinkles and discolorations, age-related/sun-damaged rough skin texture, acne and surgical scars.

 

SmartLipo Triplex: This laser procedure permanently removes fat by destroying fat cells, removing them and tightening the skin. It is effective for large areas of the body as well as smaller ones, like the neck.

 

Kybella: This series of injections dissolves submental fat permanently and causes some skin contraction, too. Once fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat, so re-treatment is not expected.

 

So, if your neck is making you unhappy, call our office today to schedule a complimentary consultation. We’ll devise an individual treatment plan just for you.

 

See you soon.

 

Neck News: Toss Those Scarves and Turtlenecks

Just as the skin on your face ages and endures the elements, the delicate neck area is prone to changes in color and tautness that many of us don’t like.

 

You may notice brown spots and pigmentation, particularly on the decolletage. Or, this chest area may appear red, blotchy or wrinkly, most often due to excessive exposure to the sun. Some people develop little lines or bands that run horizontally around the neck, and others have vertical cords (platysmal bands) that become prominent. Also, when collagen and elastin decreases over time, the skin on the neck may sag and look crepey.

 

At home, remember to moisturize and use SPF and retinol products, as you would on your face. If you are still not happy, come see us. We have many ways to help your neck look beautiful and more youthful.

 

SmartLipo Triplex: permanently removes fat by destroying fat cells and tightens the delicate skin on the neck

 

Kybella: dissolves submental fat permanently with injections and causes some skin contraction, too

 

Infini: tightens the neck and jowls using microneedling and radio frequency and reduces the crepiness, too

 

Thermage CPT: tightens skin on the neck and jowls, non-invasively

 

Exilis Ultra 360: tightens skin on the neck and jowls and reduces fat, non-invasively

 

Fraxel Repair: resurfaces and tightens the skin on the neck and jowls and reduces crepiness and hyperpigmentation (red and brown spots)

September, Seriously

Fall is the time for getting back to work and hitting the books. With vacation time behind us, we tend to become more serious in general about our day to day lives and responsibilities. An important part of every day is how we feel, with happiness being the overwhelming goal for many people. When we are happy, we typically do better–at work, at home, at school, and everywhere else.

 

How we feel about ourselves determines, in no small part, how happy we are. The more assured in our abilities, the more secure in our emotions, the more enthusiastic about the experiences we have, the happier we seem to be. How content we are with our appearance also plays a role in our overall well-being. It is an old adage–”Look good, feel good”–but I think that it is true.

 

We can help bring it to life for you, and now is a good time to start, or to begin again. Fall is self-improvement time, the perfect season for getting serious about making subtle changes that will enhance your natural good looks and your confidence.

 

Here is what we recommend for this month:

 

Lift Your Spirits, and Your Skin: Using advanced dermal fillers such as JuvedermRadiesseRestylaneRestylane DefyneRestylane Refyne, Restylane Lyft and Restylane Contour we can lift and contour facial features, restoring your natural fullness exactly where you need us to. Nonsurgical and virtually pain-free, this “liquid facelift” can reduce wrinkles, lines and folds, create a more rested and fresh look, and return your face to its curved former self.

 

Sometimes, we “lift” the entire face; sometimes, we target specific spots, such as bags under the eyes, marionette lines, sagging eye lids, jowls and flattened cheeks. We can even disguise bumps on the nose, a method that will keep you out of the operating room and free of anesthesia, recuperation and downtime.

 

No More Turtlenecks: Particularly effective for this area, Infini microneedling is a treatment for boosting your skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin, which are two of the most important substances for keeping your skin plump and youthful. Tiny needles, ones that are much smaller than the needles we use with dermal fillers, penetrate the top layer of your skin, triggering your body to create the new collagen and elastin. Results may include improved texture and firmness, and I’ve seen terrific success in the reduction of acne scarring, pore size and stretch marks.

 

Say Eye: Touted as the first nonsurgical facelift, Thermage CPT will actually transform skin all over your body. The Thermage CPT thermal lift will tighten loose skin on the eyelids, under-eye areas, abdomen, arms, legs and even your sagging buttocks. Thermage CPT, one of the most effective lift treatments for a multitude of concerns, yields dramatic results without incisions and recuperation.

 

In the eye area, for instance, Thermage CPT reduces “hooding,” improves texture, and tones and softens fine lines and crow’s feet. The treatment is a safe, effective and unique option for “eyelid rejuvenation.” The Body Shape procedure is ideal for men and women who are looking to help firm sagging skin and reduce unwanted bulges that dieting and exercise alone cannot seem to change.

 

Shape a Better You: SmartLipo Triplex is a minimally invasive method for removing unwanted fat and sculpting areas of the body that you’d like to change. A laser treatment that virtually melts fat cells and suctions them away, the Triplex technology is updated from the original SmartLipo system in that it uses three wavelengths of laser light and yields better fat removal, tighter skin and high-definition body sculpting capabilities.

 

Call our office for a complimentary consultation, and we’ll help devise a treatment plan just for you.

 

See you soon.
