Many wrinkles of the face are the result of muscle movement. These so-called “dynamic” lines commonly occur between the eyebrows (frown lines), around the eyes (smile lines), or on the forehead. Many people feel that their frown lines always make them look angry. Botox is commonly used to improve or eliminate these dynamic or muscle related lines.
Cool Technology. Even Cooler Results.
You exercise. You eat right. But some stubborn fat bulges are immune to diet and exercise. You don’t feel as confident in your own skin as you should. Or could. CoolSculpting is a revolutionary non-surgical contouring treatment that freezes stubborn fat, which then is naturally eliminated from your body. No needles, no special diets, no supplements, no surgery. And most importantly, no downtime. It’s safe, FDA-cleared, effective, and does exactly what it’s supposed to do!
Dysport® is an FDA-approved injection used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles in the forehead. Similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport is injected directly into the site of wrinkles to prevent the underlying muscles from contracting. Dysport injections are made from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, the same protein used in Botox injections.
Dr. Rostan is excited about the addition of Exilis to her practice! Exilis offers a revolutionary non-invasive form of treatment for the reduction of wrinkles and for the reshaping of targeted fat deposits.
Genius (formerly known as Infini) is a radio frequency (RF) system combined with fractional microneedling that encourages skin tightening and collagen renewal without surgical downtime. The device uses flow needle technology to deliver RF heat precisely to the dermis at specific depths without affecting the upper layer of skin making it safe for use on all skin types.
Much of the focus of rejuvenation is on the face, neck and chest; however; your hands can show signs of aging as well and are often overlooked in a rejuvenation plan. Great looking hands can help you look and feel your best and can compliment any facial rejuvenation plan. The three main ways to improve the appearance of aging hands can be put in one of 3 categories:
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Restylane® and Juvéderm® are injectable fillers composed of a biodegradable gel called hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance within the body. In addition to adding fullness to the skin, these hyaluronic acid fillers attract water molecules to the site of the injection, further enhancing their effectiveness.
The miraDry procedure is safe and clinically proven to provide a significant reduction of underarm sweat. The miraDry procedure uses the only non-invasive technology that is FDA cleared to provide lasting results. The procedure uses precisely controlled energy to eliminate underarm sweat glands. Because the sweat glands don’t grow back once eliminated, the results are dramatic and lasting.
Radiesse® is a synthetic injectable filler that has been FDA-approved to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles, folds and creases around the nose and mouth by augmenting the skin’s natural collagen structure. It is a safe, effective and long-lasting filler that is effective for adding volume and contour to the face for an overall younger, fuller, and smoother appearance. With just one or two Radiesse® treatments, you can enjoy a beautiful, natural look that lasts.
Sclerotherapy is a procedure used to treat spider veins by injecting a solution into the veins which causes them to gradually disappear. By injecting a solution, known as a sclerosing solution, the lining of the veins becomes irritated and eventually turns into scar tissue that will then fade away. This method is the preferred treatment for spider veins and has been used since the 1930s.
Sculptra® is an injectable product that corrects the signs of aging by restoring lost volume in the face, resulting in a more youthful, natural-looking appearance with subtle, yet noticeable results. As we age, our bones and subcutaneous tissues lose volume and result in sunken cheeks, jowls, hollow temples and eyes, and a reduced jawline.
Skin Fillers & VolumizersSculptra®
As we age, our skin begins to lose its fullness, and sagging, wrinkling and hollowing occur. These changes and other effects of aging can be improved through the use of skin fillers and volumizers. Soft tissue fillers made from collagen, hyaluronic acid and other natural substances are injected directly into the skin and deeper tissues to restore fullness, lift skin and smooth creases. The injected substance supports the skin and restores the volume that is lost over time.
Skin fillers and volumizers can be used to treat the cheeks, eyes, mouth, brow, chin, nose and any other area of the face that may be affected by aging. The results are often visible immediately and continue to improve over several months. Re-volumization with fillers is a safe procedure with very little downtime or discomfort. Restoration of facial volume with fillers creates a natural and long-lasting youthful appearance. Dr. Rostan is known for her skill in making patients look younger, healthier and not overdone with facial fillers.
SkinPen® is the first microneedling device in the world cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), clinically shown to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars for ages 22 and up. You can approve your appearance and step out with confidence.
The Thermage procedure is an advanced way of tightening skin that uses a unique form of radiofrequency energy to allow the physician to tighten loose or sagging skin, producing a kind of “lift” without an incision or recovery time. It is the first non-invasive method to tighten loose skin. With the gentle touch of the device tip, the surface of the skin is cooled, while the deeper tissue is altered by radiofrequency heating. This not only tightens deeper skin tissue, but jumpstarts new collagen production, which occurs over a period of time.
What is ThermiTight RF?
ThermiTight RF is the first aesthetic procedure that delivers controlled thermal energy under the skin to stimulate collagen providing a tightening effect for loose or sagging skin. ThermiTight RF uses temperature-regulated radiofrequency(RF) energy delivered through a tiny probe to gently heat specific tissues to a pre-determined therapeutic temperature. Areas that can be treated are the face, neck, abdomen, arms, etc. This procedure is ideal for patients who want more results than non-invasive procedures but still wish to avoid surgery.
Treatment of Acne Scars
“Saucer” or rolling type scars are the most common type of acne scar and have the appearance of small circular or oval depressions in the skin. These scars may be accentuated by redness or skin color change in the scar and by variations of lighting. Ice pick scars are small, sharp or pin-point type scars that penetrate deeply into the skin. Box car type scars are similar to ice-pick scars but the size of the box car scar is much larger and has the impression of a cut-out or a cookie cutter.
The Venus Legacy is a non-invasive anti-aging and body contouring solution that can be used on the face and various areas of the body.
