With these frigid conditions it is no doubt that winter is upon us. The holidays have come and gone as quickly as ever and we are left with the longing for spring in a new year. Despite the short respite that winter brings, we are busy as ever with new techniques, technologies, and research in the ever-expanding frontier of dermatologic surgery. Here are some current tips and tricks to keep you up to date. Happy New Year and I look forward to seeing you all soon!

Ultherapy’s 3rd generation upgrade brings better results with less discomfort
Currently the most popular and effective non-invasive, facial skin tightening device on the market, Ulthera continues to streamline their technology with recent upgrades. With several years of experience our treatment protocols now provide even better results with less discomfort. Still totally non-invasive and free of downtime.
New microcannulas ease trauma and bruising of volume fillers
Re- Volumization of facial structures has revolutionized cosmetic dermatology helping to minimize if not totally avoid more aggressive cosmetic procedures. Using blunt ended microcannulas instead of needles in certain circumstances have shown to minimize trauma and recovery time associated with these procedures.
The VBeam Laser Treatment
VBeam Laser treatments after trauma or surgery rapidly speeds healing and reduces scar formation.
VBeam pulsed dye laser treatments are currently used to literally erase purple bruises and swelling that would otherwise last days to weeks in mere hours. Used after surgical procedures, after stitch removal, or accidents these treatments decrease downtime and dramatically aid in healing.
Hand rejuvenation brought to the next level
You could always tell someone’s age by their hands —til now. Using a combination of treatments, now your skin can be as immaculate as your manicures. Using Pelleve skin tightening we can now dramatically reduce the crepiness of skin in this area. Used in conjunction with other modalities such as fillers to restore plumpness and medlite laser to erase brown spots, hand rejuvenation has become a hot cosmetic treatment. Ask about the Pelleve treatment for chest décolleté, lips, and eyes too!
Fraxel® Dual Laser Resurfacing
