Hand Makeovers Are on the Rise!

Say Goodbye to Sunspots

They say you can tell someone’s age by looking at their hands. We often forget to protect our hands from the sun in the same way as our face, which can lead to sunspots and a leathery, aged appearance.

In the same way they are used to treat sun damage on your face, IPL and chemical peels can both be used to rejuvenate your hands. We can help you determine which treatment is right for you based on your complexion and degree of sun damage.

Fill Out Thin, Wrinkled Hands

As you get older, your hands will likely lose volume and plumpness, leaving behind thin, crepey skin. Fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane can create more youthful looking hands by replacing lost collagen and smoothing out wrinkles. Fillers are quick and pain free, and last around six months when injected into the hands – not quite as long as facial fillers since the hands are used frequently, causing the fillers to be metabolized more quickly.

Look Stunning on Your Big Day with this Bridal Beauty Timeline

Posted on August 4, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

The journey from your engagement to your wedding day can be a challenging time in your life. Brides-to-be often feel overwhelmed once they realize how limited a time they actually have to plan their wedding. Engaged couples absolutely need a team of friends and family to help them put together a perfect wedding.

A common mistake brides make during their wedding planning journey is having a limited view on what it takes to bring to life that perfect wedding day look. If you want to look like your best self on your wedding day, you will likely need some help from aesthetic medicine practitioners. These skincare specialists will do more for you than create the illusion of a flawless face; they can actually make you look younger and more beautiful. In our practice we worked extensively with brides to strategize and deliver the best results given the individual’s beauty goals and timeline. Here are two pre-wedding beauty treatments to try that can help bring forth an even more beautiful bride.

Botox
Botox is an excellent option for women who are concerned that wrinkles and facial lines will diminish their chance of looking their best on a wedding day. Botox is one of the most effective methods available to smooth facial lines, but it will take a couple of weeks to reveal full results of the treatment. Brides should have their first Botox session at least 5 months before their wedding day so that they have time to fine tune areas of the face that they would still like to improve.

IPL Photofacial
Your wedding day will be one of the most photographed days of your life. For women who want to remove the signs of sun damage so they could look flawless on their wedding photographs, we strongly recommend a series of IPL Photofacials. This advanced therapy uses light energy to eradicate sun spots, spider veins and pigment problems. For best results, we typically perform 2-3 treatment sessions approximately a month apart, and brides can usually see results after the 2nd treatment.

IPL May Fill the Bill to Clearer Skin

Posted on September 10, 2013 by Ella Fedonenko

While BOTOX and derma fillers seem to get all the good press, we shouldn’t forget about another non-invasive procedure that might be just the choice for you. IPL, or intense pulsed light, is another popular treatment for several specific conditions. In fact, IPL may treat several conditions at the same time.

Vascular conditions, such as broken capillaries (spider veins), sun or age spots; rosacea; some loss of firmness; and enlarged pores are all treatable with a series of IPL sessions. This treatment is not the same as the laser but it does use high-intensity light and heat to penetrate below the outer layer of skin and, actually, damage the melatonin that causes brown spots or the blood vessels that create broken capillaries.

Then when the skin repairs or rejuvenates itself, the brown spots or broken veins disappear leaving the new skin clearer and more even-toned. Additionally, the IPL process may also stimulate the production of your body’s own collagen and create a firmer, tighter connective structure for your skin.

IPL is a process and the greatest success comes over a period of three to six treatments, at three to four week intervals. Each procedure, lasting about 30 minutes, reveals more and more noticeable results and you can decide when you’ve attained your optimum outcome.

Another consideration in selecting intense pulsed light treatments is affordability. Because IPL performs several different functions it’s usually less costly, overall, than the laser and, therefore, a good procedure to explore first.

As with all cosmetic dermatology treatments, every patient has different tolerances for discomfort. A cooling gel will be applied to the area, during the process.

As for side-effects, they are, usually, minimal and may include some temporary redness and minor swelling which may be covered with make-up.
