Assembly Line Facelifts

We’re all aware of the over exaggerated marketing efforts to brainwash consumers into believing they “need” items or services. There’s always a newer, better, more effective, healthier, promise attached. We often forget there’s a billion dollar industry behind this marketing dedicated to selling whatever the advertiser pays them to sell. There’s no difference in the … Read More

Age Reversing Lasers

There always seems to be a newer and better anti-aging, skin resurfacing laser on the market. The options are almost overwhelming and the expectations can be very high.

The Skinny on Skin Cancer

There are two main categories of skin cancers, melanoma and … Read More

Love your Lips

Full, plump lips are considered a sign of beauty and sensuality. Some of us were born with thin lips or lose our original fullness with age. Most patients seek lip enhancement because they feel their lips are too thin, they are drooping, or they are wrinkled. Whatever the reason, lip enhancement is a commonly desired … Read More

The Fear of Facelifts

I see patients weekly with very similar issues; Sagging skin with loss of elasticity and volume, fine lines and wrinkles. After a certain point in age, fillers and injectables can only do so much. Sometimes surgery is the only option to achieve exactly what the patient is seeking; a younger appearance. The word “facelift” can … Read More

Earlobe Repair

We get numerous calls from both men and women who have stretched or torn earlobes they want to have repaired.

The Botulinum Dilemma

I have had patients ask me recently, “What’s the difference between Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin?” The three neuromuscular relaxants/modulators are all very similar and effective at treating and delaying the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
