FACIAL AGE SPOTS

Saturday, September 30th, 2017

The Nordlys system of broad band light technology, known as Selective Waveband Technology (SWT), has been very effective in the treatment of age spots on the face. Precise energy pulses delivered to the face are absorbed by the pigmented spots causing a reaction that results in their gradual exfoliation. A significant improvement can be seen with a single treatment but followup treatments at 1 month intervals may be necessary to maximize the result. The treatment takes about 20 minutes and is very well tolerated by patients.

NORDLYS Nd:YAG LASER VEIN TREATMENT

Sunday, August 20th, 2017

The Ellipse Nordlys is a state of the art device with multiple light and laser based treatment options for effectively managing various conditions. Superficial veins around the eye and temporal region are a frequent complaint that can be very visible and difficult to conceal due to the thin skin in this region. Treatment with the Nordlys Nd:YAG laser can reduce or eliminate the veins by using a specific wavelength of light to deliver energy that is absorbed by the red blood cells contained within these vessels. The energy is converted to heat which is transmitted to the inside surface of the vein. This results in eventual collapse and sealing of the veins so no further blood flow occurs. The lack of blood flow is what makes the veins gradually disappear. There are plenty of deeper veins in this area so eliminating the superficial ones that are visible is not a problem. There is minimal discomfort and the treatment only takes a few minutes. Frequently one treatment is sufficient but additional treatments may be indicated depending on the response of the veins.

FRACTORA

Saturday, July 29th, 2017

Fractora is a treatment that combines microneedling with bipolar radio frequency energy to treat skin wrinkles and texture. The edges of the channels created by the needles are heated and the resulting wound healing response by the body generates new collagen deposition in the skin. Skin quality is enhanced with a more youthful appearance that has better tone and fewer wrinkles. A series of 3-6 treatments at monthly intervals is usually recommended to achieve the greatest benefit from the procedure.

DEFENAGE

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

DefenAge is a new skin care product line that rejuvenates the skin by  activating the stem cells found in hair follicles. Age-Repair Defensins™  are the regenerative messenger peptides contained in DefenAge. They work by triggering the production of new skin cells by the stem cells they target.

Stem Cells in the hair follicles are activated by Defenage to rejuvenate the skin.

Stem Cells in the hair follicles are activated by DefenAge to rejuvenate the skin.

 

This process leads to cell renewal that results in more youthful appearing skin. The barrier surface layer of skin cells, known as keratinocytes, are restored leading to enhanced protection from environmental skin stressors and improved skin hydration. The clinical trials that were performed showed diminished wrinkles, enhanced skin tone and texture, and reduced dryness.

Dr. Forley is using DefenAge in combination with the Fractora micro needling and radio frequency energy treatment to maximize skin improvement. Enhanced penetration of the stem cell stimulating Age-Repair Defensins™ through the channels created by the Fractora procedure may potentiate their effect on skin cell renewal.

SLEEPING POSITIONS MAY CAUSE WRINKLES OVER TIME

Sunday, November 27th, 2016

New York, NY (July 26, 2016) – A new study published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, the peer-reviewed publication of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), indicates that compression, tension, and shear forces applied to the face during sleep cause facial distortion when people sleep on their sides and stomach, leading to the development of sleep wrinkles over time.

SMOKING AND THE SKIN

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Most of us are already aware that smoking is a damaging habit that can affect important organs such as the lungs, heart, and brain as well as being one of the leading causes of cancer. Even though most smokers already know that tobacco has adverse effects on their health, they may not realize the premature aging that it produces in the skin.

No smoking

Inhalation of just one puff from a cigarette exposes you to over 7,000 chemicals in addition to reducing the blood supply to the skin. This harmful combination damages the integrity of skin elastic fibres and collagen. The sagging skin that results can effect the whole body and is not limited to the face and neck. Reduced levels of vitamin A contribute to loss of moisture in the skin. In addition, skin discoloration, age spots, and premature lines around the eyes and lips can be the direct result of smoking.

Although quitting cigarettes alone makes the skin more resistant to premature aging, skin care options that include retinoids and antioxidants such as Vitamins C and E can help repair some of the damage already done. Cosmetic procedures such as laser skin resurfacing or skin peels can also help where the damage is most visible. Prevention of additional damage from the harmful UV radiation produced by the sun requires the regular use of sunscreens.
