Do you look Mad or Angry? Would you like to get rid of your wrinkles?
As time goes on your skin become less elastic. Furrows and creases form after years of concentrating, squinting, or frowning. Those severe to moderate frown lines between your brows remain, even when the muscles are contracted. These moderate to severe lines between your brows may make your appear angry and unapproachable.
Medical cosmetics can give you real, noticeable results whether you have frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, falling eye brows or other unwanted wrinkles.
Wrinkle Reduction with Injectable Neuromodulators (Muscle Relaxers)
There are several different companies that have branded products of botulinum toxin-A. Allergen has Botox, Medicis has Dysport, and Merz Pharma has Xeomin. These are all FDA approved and have been in use for many years all over the world. They all work the exact same way to relax muscles and thereby lessen the appearance of aging facial wrinkles. In my practice I use the tiniest of needles to carefully place the neuromodulator (muscle relaxer) in the appropriate muscles. Unless a client desires otherwise, I also use a topical skin numbing ointment beforehand to decrease or completely eliminate any discomfort during the treatment. I have done over 35,000 of these treatments over the past 12 years. In most instances, the benefit lasts 3-4 months. In some fortunate individuals, the youthful effects of Botox can last even longer. We also use Botox and other agents to prevent migraine headaches, and eliminate problematic localized severe sweating in areas such as the armpits, palms of the hands, or forehead. We provide Botox services in our Lancaster office, just a short distance from Harrisburg and York, & Philadelphia, PA.
Filling of Aging Facial Creases, Folds, Wrinkles, Depressions, or Areas of Volume Loss
As we all age, we are prone to develop volume loss and/or creases/depressions/folds in areas where we may not want them. Some people develop deep grooves between the corners of the nose and the corners of the mouth. Many times people are concerned with sunkenness of the cheekbone region, midface, or temples. Often women will want fuller lips. All of these concerns can be addressed with various fillers. Each filler has its own unique qualities and deciding which one to use will depend on the desired outcome of the individual client. I use all of the popular hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane, Perlane, and the various Juvederms. For deeper areas of concern or when more volume or maximal duration of effect is needed, Radiesse or Sculptra can be used. The best way to sort this out is to have a free consultation with me so that we can discuss your concerns and develop a plan that is uniquely tailored just for you. During your consultation, I will explain all of the pros and cons of the many possible options available. You will also be given the cost of the proposed treatment prior to receiving any service so that there will be no surprises.
All of these issues can be addressed by the use of various lasers. We do many fractionated C02 laser treatments(laser skin resurfacing) to tighten, smooth, and even out the discolorations or alterations of facial skin tone. It has been especially gratifying to improve facial acne scars. We have lasers of multiple wavelengths and pulse durations to optimally address almost all of your concerns. Whenever possible we use a topical numbing agent along with a Zimmer Cooler to maximize patient comfort during any laser treatment. As always, your comfort is a high priority for Gail, our entire staff, and me. Our laser skin resurfacing treatments are available in the Philadelphia, Harrisburg, Lancaster, & York, PA region.
Do You Have Fat That Won’t Go Away?
You have a healthy lifestyle and diet. You’re physically fit and your weight is stable. Still you have bumps, lumps, and bulges that never seem to go away. Men and women alike face this frustrating truth, a muffin top. Love handles and back fat, not much, but just enough to show through your favorite snug fitting blouse or shirt. These small areas of fat don’t seem to warrant a surgical procedure. However, you’re tempted. What are your options and what can your do?
Much as I would like to purchase every new piece of equipment that comes along (ask my wife!), this is not possible. I do, however, make it a priority to know about all emerging methodologies as soon as there are expert speakers or medical journal articles to discuss these new options. One of the more recent of these is the process of CoolSculpting by Zeltiq. This $94,000 piece of equipment makes possible the 25% permanent removal of localized areas of subcutaneous fat per treatment session. This is completely non-invasive with absolutely no long-lasting side effects and a minimum of transient initial discomfort. I perform this treatment at one of the out of Lancaster offices where I work, specifically Lebo Skin Care Center in York. Consults and appointments can be arranged at our Lancaster Medical Cosmetics office. If you are wondering why I am especially trim around my midsection lately, this is the reason!
Regardless of your reasons, the tattoo removal process we use in our Lancaster, PA office has the ability to treat the entire spectrum of ink colors… no more looking for somewhere else to have those colors treated that were left behind! Call us for a free consultation or read more about PicoSure.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive alternative to surgery that uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten skin on the brow, neck, and beneath the chin. It stimulates the growth of collagen and elastin, giving you a fresher, younger appearance with no downtime for recovery. Learn more at Ultherapy.com.
