ProLipo™ Laser Lipolysis for Increased Skin Contraction

The ProLipo™ laser adds two additional laser wavelengths for use during liposuction. One wavelength in particular provides very effective connective tissue shrinkage and is preferred for cases in which ehanced skin contraction is needed. ProLipo™ laser energy is used in the same body areas where SlimLipo™ is used. The ProLipo™ laser has particular advantages in [...]

SlimLipo Laser Lipolysis for Specific “Melting” of Fat

SlimLipo is an improvement on the older SmartLipo laser. Both of these lasers are used to deliver energy to the fat layer after local anesthetic solution has been infused. The SlimLipo (Selective Laser-Induced Melting) laser was designed to effectively melt fat cells while leaving intact the delicate connective tissue within the fatty layer. This selective [...]

Sedation Not Needed for Laser Resurfacing

Question: Can I get laser resurfacing without sedation? I do not want any sedatives as I don’t need any. I heard a doctor around here wouldn’t even do it without the patient being sedated. However, I have heard of some that just use local anesthesia with an OPTION for sedative or iv sedation. Please let [...]

Erbium laser before filler for lower eyelids

Question: I am scheduled for erbium laser resurfacing on lower eyelids in two months. If I wanted to get filler done under the eyes should this wait until after the resurfacing? Or how long after resurfacing would you recommend getting the filler injected if it can be done at all? Answer: It probably makes the [...]

Sun Protection: Your Best Defense

Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is a number that indicates how many times longer, with protection, the skin may be exposed to the sun before sunburn damage results. For example, a properly applied SPF 15 sunscreen will prolong the time it takes to sunburn by 15-fold. An SPF 30 sunscreen will block twice as much UV [...]

Fraxel Skin Rejuvenation: Sun Damage Eraser

The Fraxel laser is considered one of the most significant advancement in skin rejuvenation since the advent of laser resurfacing in the mid-1990s. Fraxel laser treatments greatly improve the appearance of sun-damaged or aging skin yet avoid significant post-treatment inconvenience for the patient. The advantages of Fraxel laser treatment are so substantial that the Fraxel [...]

Cosmetic Surgery Times article on SLIMLipo

We have been very happy with the results we have been getting with the SLIMLipo laser for liposuction. The laser is used after the local anesthetic has been administered; it actually melts the fat, which enables us to use smaller instruments to suction the liquified fat during liposuction. The biggest advantage of liposuction with SLIMLipo [...]

Which “Filler” to Use: Restylane, Radiesse or Sculptra?

There are many injectable “fillers” that have FDA approval, each having a special use in diminishing wrinkles and furrows. Since its FDA approval in December 2003, Restylane has become the most popular wrinkle-filling injectable treatment in the United States. Restylane is used mainly for superficial wrinkles and has almost entirely replaced older collagen treatments. Unlike [...]

They used computers to manipulate pictures of 18 women’s and 9 men’s eyes so that they were made to look small, medium and large. Then the researchers asked test subjects to characterize the personalities of the people in [...]
