On October 25, 2012, we had our first townhouse Energy Day Event. Despite Tropical Storm Sandy’s attempt to prevent the party, cosmetic dermatology chatter and energy filled the air…the show went on! Everyone left with complimentary chemical peels, Restylane, or Dysport. You can’t beat that! If you were unable to join us for the fun, here is what you missed.
The idea behind the event was to introduce you to all of the new and exciting energy procedures that we are offering at the office. As we roll into the New Year, what better way to start by renewing your youth. We discussed the ultimate anti-aging facial, neck and chest rejuvenation laser called the CO2 (carbon dioxide) fractionated laser. At a particular wavelength, this laser delivers energy deep into the dermis of the skin to increase the collagen. It also renews the top layer of the skin, improving deep lines and wrinkles around the eyes, around the mouth, cheeks, neck creases and décolletage. It resurfaces the skin improving texture and erasing the many years of photoaging including brown spots. If you are ready for an aggressive one-time treatment, then this is the one for you. It requires a week downtime with particular aftercare of the skin but well worth the time.
For those of us that hate the background redness and brown spots on our face, neck, chest, arms, and hands, then the Limelight device is the one for you. With just a few sessions (sometimes may only need one), all of the superficial imperfections are improved. The procedure is quick, safe and highly effective. Now that the holidays are approaching, this is the time to do this procedure. You will be ready to show off your youthful skin!
Have acne, textural or tone problems, large pores or even nail fungus? The Laser genesis® is a device that delivers light into the upper dermis of the skin and stimulates your body’s natural collagen production. It is great for all skin types and requires no downtime. It rejuvenates the skin and helps to erase years of photoaging. Everyone can benefit from this procedure. Don’t forget the men in your life! They can benefit from this too. It’s safe and painless.
For those of us with busy lifestyles that want a fairly aggressive anti-aging treatment, the E-Matrix is the procedure to consider. This device delivers energy deep into the dermis to stimulate natural collagen and elastin production. It improves tone, textural irregularities, large pore size, and even sagging skin. Yes that is right, it can improves the so called turkey neck that many of us dislike. Anyone can benefit from this procedure but we absolutely recommend that all women and men start doing this procedure in their late 20’s-30’s as this is the time when our body’s start to slow down on its development of new collagen and elastin. At this point, our bodies also start to react and show the damage that has accumulated over time. This is the procedure that will prevent you from having to do more aggressive and invasive cosmetic procedures as we get older. What better gift to give someone!
Thermage is the ultimate device that delivers heat even deeper into the dermis to tighten any loose sagging skin. This can be done on the face, neck, arms, hands, belly, buttocks, and even the thighs. With just one to two treatments, you can contour your body to improve the texture, tone and reduce the appearance of cellulite. This is also a procedure that the younger generation should start doing, particularly on the face and neck, to prevent having to do more invasive procedures such as faces lifts.
Don’t forget to couple these procedures with fillers and Botox or Dysport for the ultimate make-over. We want to thank all of our wonderful patients and friends for joining us on such a special day. We hope to provide you with many more opportunities to learn about what we are doing here in the office. Until next time…
