Microdermabrasion helps with acne scars

  Microdermabrasion may be very useful for people with active acne, mild acne discoloration, pick marks, and very      superficial or raised acne scars. Dermatologists use microdermabrasion to help unclog pores and clear acne. Often used in  combination with gentle glycolic peels and medical acne extractions, microderm can help speed up acne clearing.

Having issues with Age Spots, Even Out Skin Tone, Acne Scars Well A Microdermabrasion has a variety of beneficial outcomes. It removes the dead cells from the upper surface of the skin, directly achieving skin resurfacing and related effects such as hyperpigmentation and the reduction of acne marks. When used as a facial treatment, it can leave your skin feeling fresher and smoother, without the need for invasive surgery. The long-term effects can be supported through the use of cosmetics – and these will also be absorbed faster into your skin after dermabrasion.

 

What is truSculpt™?

What is truSculpt™?

TruSculpt™ is a breakthrough RF (Radio Frequency) technology that delivers deep heating to adipose tissue for non-invasive fat reduction, body sculpting/contouring and the temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite. It is designed to treat multiple areas of the body such as the abdomen, flanks, thighs, buttocks and other stubborn regions where fat lingers.

Am I the right candidate for truSculpt™?

We will determine if this treatment is right for you during your consultation. Typically, ideal patients for this procedure have a BMI of less than 30 and have unwanted fat in different areas of the body.

Who cannot be treated with truSculpt™?

Patients who cannot be treated with truSculpt™ include those who have cardiac pacemakers, internal defibrillators, tumors and metallic implants (including joint replacements) in the target area. Patients who are pregnant may not undergo this procedure.

Can truSculpt™ be used on all skin types?

Yes, truSculpt™ can be used on all skin types.
How long does a truSculpt™ non-invasive fat removal treatment take?

Typically a treatment in one area takes less than an hour.

How many treatments will I need?

During your consultation, we will discuss the number of treatments you will need based on the area(s) you want to have treated and the results desired. Typically, patients need 2-5 treatments per area with each treatment approximately 8 weeks apart.

When will I start seeing visible results?

TruSculpt™ delivers RF energy to destroy fat cells in the treatment area. It then uses the body’s natural system to break down and dispose of these cells. This process may take up to 3 months. Patients will begin to feel/see results within days that will gradually increase during and possibly beyond this period.

What do I need to do before a treatment?

There is no special preparation needed before a treatment except for removing any jewelry or body piercings in the area(s).

What happens during the treatment?

After a brief pre-treatment preparation, the truSculpt™ handpiece is applied to the skin. The handpiece will deliver a pulse of RF energy that will last 4 minutes on average. The handpiece will then be moved to adjacent areas to which this process will be repeated until the entire treatment area has been covered.

What does it feel like?

TruSculpt™ is designed to be a comfortable procedure for non-invasive fat removal and body sculpting/contouring. Due to its proprietary design, the heating of the area will be tolerable. We will adjust the temperature based on your comfort level. Typically, no pain medication, topical anesthesia, gels or active cooling are required.

Can I return to normal activities after treatment?

Yes, the procedure is non-invasive, so you should be able to return to normal activities immediately. Typically, there is no downtime after the treatment although some patients may experience mild discomfort for a few hours. For example, many patients go back to work immediately after their sessions.

Is truSculpt™ safe? Are there side effects?

The truSculpt™ System is designed to provide a safe and comfortable procedure for non-invasive fat removal and body sculpting/contouring. Side effects can include redness, sweating and mild tenderness in the treated areas. Usually, this resolves in a few hours. We will discuss in more detail what to expect during and after your treatment at your consultation.

How much does a truSculpt™ treatment cost?

Our pricing is competitive, and we offer a free complimentary consultations with one of our medical providers.

What is KYBELLA?

Kyobella

KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”

It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area or in children less than 18 years of age.

Who should not receive KYBELLA®?

You should not receive KYBELLA® if you have an infection in the treatment area.

Before receiving KYBELLA®, tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you: Have had or plan to have surgery on your face, neck, or chin; have had cosmetic treatments on your face, neck, or chin; have had or have medical conditions in or near the neck area; have had or have trouble swallowing; have bleeding problems; are pregnant or plan to become pregnant (it is not known if KYBELLA® will harm your unborn baby); are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed (it is not known if KYBELLA® passes into your breast milk; talk to your healthcare provider about the best way to feed your baby if you receive KYBELLA®).

Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Especially tell your healthcare provider if you take a medicine that prevents the clotting of your blood (antiplatelet or anticoagulant medicine).

What are the possible side effects of KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® can cause serious side effects, including nerve injury in the jaw (which can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness), or trouble swallowing.

The most common side effects of KYBELLA® include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.

These are not all of the possible side effects of KYBELLA®. Call your healthcare provider for medical advice about side effects.

 

ABOUT KYBELLA®

Untitled

 

 

 

 

 

KYBELLA® may be right for you if:

  • You’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness
  • You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
  • You don’t want to have surgery
  • You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away

Untitled 2

HOW KYBELLA® WORKS

The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA®destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.

WHAT TO EXPECT WITH KYBELLA®

Before starting treatment, your healthcare specialist will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, your specialist will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.

How is KYBELLA® administered?

Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.

How many KYBELLA® treatment sessions will I need?

Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA®treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.

Will I need time to recover?

After KYBELLA® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Be sure to inform your healthcare professional if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, or difficulty swallowing.

What are the possible side effects of KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® can cause serious side effects, including nerve injury in the jaw that can temporarily cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness (experienced by 4 out of 100 people in clinical studies) and trouble swallowing (experienced by 2 out of 100 people in clinical studies). In clinical studies, nerve injury in the jaw resolved on its own in a median of 44 days (range of 1 to 298 days), and trouble swallowing resolved on its own in a median of 3 days (range of 1 to 81 days).

The most common side effects occur in the treatment area and include:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Redness
  • Areas of hardness

Side effects are usually temporary and often resolve on their own.

What should I tell my doctor before treatment?

Before receiving KYBELLA®, tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you:

  • Have had or plan to have surgery on your face, neck, or chin
  • Have had cosmetic treatments on your face, neck, or chin
  • Have had or have medical conditions in or near the neck area
  • Have had or have trouble swallowing
  • Have bleeding problems
  • Are pregnant or plan to become pregnant (it is not known if KYBELLA®will harm your unborn baby)
  • Are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed (it is not known if KYBELLA® passes into your breast milk; talk to your healthcare provider about the best way to feed your baby if you receive KYBELLA®)
  • Are taking any medications, especially blood thinners

What is Collagen P.I.N. /(Micro-Needling)?

The Collagen P.I.N. Safety Micro-Needle provides “flawless” results on Face and some body areas. As our skin ages, our collagen production naturally slows down. Micro-needling is a method of introducing a controlled micro wound into the skin triggering a release of natural  Collagen & Elastin and Growth Factors. As a result, the skin’s repair process begins immediately upon treatment and Fibroblasts (the cells that synthesize new collagen) are active for up to one year after just one Collagen P.I.N. treatment. New Collagen and Elastin production results in younger, healthier, plumper, and firmer skin, effectively reducing the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles, and fine lines for an overall better tone and texture.

How Does it work?

Collagen P.I.N. has minimal down time. Immediately after your treatment, your skin will look slightly pink to moderately red.  Depending on your skin’s sensitivity and the extent of treatment, the redness can last for 24-36 hours. You may also have some dryness or flaking 3-4 days after the treatment. Your medical provider will recommend skin care products for your post care based on your individual skin, which will greatly minimize these symptoms and enhance your overall results.

How many treatments will I need?

Most patients see results after the first Collagen P.I.N. treatment. Individual results vary depending on individual skin health. It is most common to begin to see positive results as soon as 1-2 weeks after the first treatment. Optimal results are seen with 3-6 treatments, depending upon your area of correction. Please visit http://inductiontherapies.com/facial-filler-treatments-video/  for more information and videos of the P.I.N. Collagen treatments.

About Xeomin

What is Xeomin?

Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA, also called botulinum toxin type A), is made from the bacteria that causes botulism. Botulinum toxin blocks nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity.

Xeomin is used to treat cervical dystonia (severe spasms in the neck muscles) and certain eyemuscle conditions caused by nerve disorders. This includes uncontrolled blinking or spasm of the eyelids, and a condition in which the eyes do not point in the same direction.

Xeomin is also used to temporarily lessen the appearance of facial wrinkles (sometimes called “frown lines”) between the eyebrows.

Xeomin may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Important information about Xeomin

The botulinum toxin contained in Xeomin can spread to other body areas beyond where it was injected. This has caused serious life-threatening side effects in some people receiving botulism toxin injections, even for cosmetic purposes.

Call your doctor at once if you have a hoarse voice, drooping eyelids, vision problems, severe muscle weakness, loss of bladder control, or trouble breathing, talking, or swallowing. Some of these effects can occur up to several weeks after a Xeomin injection. Do not seek botulinum toxin injections from more than one medical professional at a time. If you switch healthcare providers, be sure to tell your new provider how long it has been since your last botulinum toxin injection.

Using Xeomin more often than prescribed will not make it more effective and may result in serious side effects.

You should not receive Xeomin if you are allergic to botulinum toxin, or if you have an infection, swelling, or muscle weakness in the area where the medicine will be injected.

Before receiving a Xeomin injection, tell your doctor if you have ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), myasthenia gravis, Lambert-Eaton syndrome, a breathing disorder, trouble swallowing, facial muscle weakness, a change in the appearance of your face, seizures, bleeding problems, heart disease, if you have had or will have surgery, or if you have ever received other botulinum toxin injections such as Botox, Dysport, or Myobloc.

The effects of a Xeomin injection are temporary. Your symptoms may return completely within 3 months after an injection. After repeat injections, it may take less and less time before your symptoms return, especially if your body develops antibodies to the botulinum toxin.

Before taking Xeomin

You should not receive Xeomin if you are allergic to botulinum toxin, or if you have an infection, swelling, or muscle weakness in the area where the medicine will be injected. Tell your doctor if you have ever had a side effect after receiving a botulinum toxin in the past.

To make sure Xeomin is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have:

  • amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, or “Lou Gehrig’s disease”);
  • myasthenia gravis;
  • Lambert-Eaton syndrome;
  • a breathing disorder such as asthma or emphysema;
  • problems with swallowing;
  • facial muscle weakness (droopy eyelids, weak forehead, trouble raising your eyebrows);
  • a change in the normal appearance of your face;
  • a seizure disorder;
  • bleeding problems;
  • heart disease;
  • if you have had or will have surgery (especially on your face); or
  • if you have ever received other botulinum toxin injections such as Botox, Dysport, or Myobloc (especially in the last 4 months).

IncobotulinumtoxinA is made from human plasma (part of the blood) which may contain viruses and other infectious agents. Donated plasma is tested and treated to reduce the risk of it containing infectious agents, but there is still a small possibility it could transmit disease. Talk with your doctor about the risks and benefits of using Xeomin.

FDA pregnancy category C. It is not known whether botulinum toxin will harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant while using Xeomin. It is not known whether botulinum toxin passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. Do not receive Xeomin without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.

How is Xeomin given?

Xeomin is injected into a muscle. A doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider will give you this injection. Xeomin injections should be spaced at least 3 months apart.

Xeomin injections should be given only by a trained medical professional.

Your injection may be given into more than one area at a time, depending on the condition being treated.

While receiving Xeomin injections for an eye muscle conditions, you may need to use eye drops, ointment, a special contact lens or other device to protect the surface of your eye. Follow your doctor’s instructions.

It may take up to 7 days after injection before neck muscle spasm symptoms begin to improve.

The effects of a Xeomin injection are temporary. Your symptoms may return completely within 3 months after an injection. After repeat injections, it may take less and less time before your symptoms return, especially if your body develops antibodies to the botulinum toxin. Do not seek botulinum toxin injections from more than one medical professional at a time. If you switch healthcare providers, be sure to tell your new provider how long it has been since your last botulinum toxin injection.

Using Xeomin more often than prescribed will not make it more effective and may result in serious side effects.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Since Xeomin has a temporary effect and is given at widely spaced intervals, missing a dose is not likely to be harmful.

What happens if I overdose?

Seek emergency medical attention or call the Poison Help line at 1-800-222-1222.

Overdose symptoms may not appear right away, but can include severe muscle weakness, trouble swallowing, weak or shallow breathing, or loss of movement in any part of your body.

What should I avoid while taking Xeomin?

Xeomin may impair your vision or depth perception. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be able to see clearly.

Avoid going back to your normal physical activities too quickly after receiving an injection.

Xeomin side effects

Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction to Xeomin: hives; difficulty breathing; feeling like you might pass out; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

The botulinum toxin contained in Xeomin can spread to other body areas beyond where it was injected. This has caused serious life-threatening side effects in some people receiving botulism toxin injections, even for cosmetic purposes.

Call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects, some of which can occur up to several weeks after an injection:

  • trouble breathing, talking, or swallowing;
  • hoarse voice, drooping eyelids;
  •  double vision;
  • unusual or severe muscle weakness (especially in a body area that was not injected with the medication);
  • loss of strength, loss of bladder control
  • wheezing, tightness in your chest;
  • eye pain or irritation;
  • severe skin rash or itching; or
  • feeling like you might pass out.

Less serious Xeomin side effects may include:

  • neck pain
  • dry eyes
  • headache, tired feeling;
  • diarrhea;
  • eyelid swelling or bruising, blinking less than usual; or
  • pain, redness, or swelling where the injection was given.

This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

 

What other drugs will affect Xeomin?

Other medications such as cold or allergy medicine, muscle relaxers, sleeping pills, bronchodilators, bladder or urinary medicines, and irritable bowel medicines can increase some of the side effects of Xeomin. Tell your doctor if you regularly use any of these medications.

Tell your doctor about all medicines you use, and those you start or stop using during your treatment with Xeomin, especially:

  • a blood thinner such as warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven); or
  • an injected antibiotic such as amikacin (Amikin), gentamicin (Garamycin), kanamycin (Kantrex), neomycin (Mycifradin, Neo-Fradin, Neo-Tab), paromomycin (Humatin, Paromycin), streptomycin, tobramycin (Nebcin, Tobi).

This list is not complete and there may be other drugs that can interact with Xeomin. Tell your doctor about all your prescription and over-the-counter medications, vitamins, minerals, herbal products, and drugs prescribed by other doctors. Do not start a new medication without telling your doctor.

Find confidence with Belotero®

 

Belotero is a unique dermal filler approved by European regulators (CE mark) and the FDA that seamlessly integrates with your skin and adapts to your facial contours, therefore plumps and adds volume to your face. Find out how Belotero softens and smoothes lines and wrinkles so discreetly like no other filler.

 

  • Is Belotero permanent?

No. Over time, the HA in Belotero degrades naturally as your own HA would, giving you the freedom to decide if you want further youthful rejuvenation treatment in the future.

  • How long does Belotero last?

The effect will depend on the individual and the area that has been treated. In clinical studies 66% of patients continued to show a visible improvement 9 months after a single treatment2. Most clients opt for follow-up treatments after 6 to 12 months to maintain a fresh, youthful appearance.

  • How long does the treatment take?

You will have an initial consultation to discuss your needs and your medical suitability for treatment should be discussed. The procedure usually takes around 20 minutes.

  • How soon can I return to normal activities?

Some patients experience swelling or redness after injection which usually subsides soon after treatment. Some return to work immediately after treatment. As Belotero is applied by injection you may experience a slight bruise, but nothing that a little concealer can’t hide.

y concerns, or don’t want to take on the cost of routine Botox injections.

Some individuals may be considered poor candidates for Botox, such as those with very loose skin and soft tissue and bulging fat of the lower eyelid. Botox is not appropriate for the line that runs from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth. That line (the nasolabial fold) is better treated with a filler such as Juvederm. Also, small wrinkles in the middle of the cheek are not treatable with Botox, but may benefit from a topical resurfacing depending on how deep and how many lines are there.

Imagine a piece of paper that is folded back and forth many times, causing a crease to develop. Similarly, habitual use of facial muscles along with the decrease in skin volume and elasticity, causes wrinkles, fine lines or ‘creases’ in the face.

LATISSE Important Safety Information

If you are using, or have used, prescription products for any eye pressure problems, only use LATISSE under close doctor care.

Acne Treatment

Acne therapy through technology by Sciton Lasers

Many of us have been battling acne by using the typical creams and ointments, but now there is an innovative technology that can leave your skin looking clearer and smoother in just a few short weeks.

Acne is a condition that causes inflammation of the skin in the form of clogged pores, pimples, cysts, blackheads and whiteheads. Severe acne can lead to scarring. This new BBL Pulsed Light Technology can be used to improve the appearance of acne scars as well. The BBL Pulsed Light Technology produced from the Sciton Laser dramatically improves skin condition and gives you back the clear complexion you have been striving for.

How Does the Sciton Laser Work?

The Sciton BBL Pulsed Light Treatment destroys acne by heating the sebaceous glands found in the dermis (the upper layers) of the skin, which reduces oil production, which in turn reduces the active acne. This takes place over the course of repeated treatments within 2-4 weeks. This BBL treatment is a controlled pulse given in a high-speed uniform manner with integrated contact cooling; the result of controlling the skin’s surface temperature is for maximum patient comfort.

Acne scarring can also be treated by the Sciton Laser through a procedure called a MicroLaserPeel. This skin resurfacing technique helps to remove the damaged skin layers and allow new healthier skin to emerge.

How many treatments are usually needed?

Studies have shown that for many patients the results for acne reduction can be seen in 4-6 treatments. Most patients receive two treatments per week until their acne clears up. However for most patients six treatments are recommended for optimal results. These results should last about 3 months.

During your initial consultation options for treatments will be discussed to determine the best course of action for achieving your specific goals. You will also discuss your treatment schedule and what results you can expect.

What is a treatment session like?

When you arrive for your acne treatment you will need to put safety goggles or glasses on to protect your eyes. As your doctor begins the procedure you may notice a warming sensation on your skin, many patients describe a snapping sensation very similar to a rubber band snap. This happens as the pulsed light energy is absorbed into the specific treatment areas.

The treatment session will take between 15 and 30 minutes. The length of your procedure will depend on the size of the area being treated, the type of procedure, and how deep the pulsed light needs to penetrate.

What should I expect following a treatment session?

Most patients experience redness following an acne treatment. This will fade within a few hours. Results will vary depending on the type of condition being treated. Your doctor will provide you more detailed information about what to expect following a treatment session.

Since this type of acne therapy is gentle and non-invasive there is little to no downtime and you will be able to continue with your day without missing a step.

What aftercare is required following an acne treatment?

Your doctor will detail your aftercare requirements before beginning your treatments. You may be instructed to use certain skin care products to help minimize any inflammation or redness, as well as to shorten healing time. Your doctor will also provide instructions on how to use any products given.

It is important to remember that your skin will be sensitive to ultra-violet light so you need to avoid direct sunlight until you heal completely. It is also recommended that you use a sunscreen whenever you are in direct sun.
