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.

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.

TREATING AGE SPOTS ON THE HANDS

Saturday, April 30th, 2016

Age spots on the hands are characterized by various shades of scattered brown pigmentation that often parallels the brown spots seen in the aging face. Yet, treatment of the hands is often overlooked. The advent of light based devices has afforded patients the opportunity to safely and effectively diminish or eliminate these unwanted spots.

The new Nordlys system uses Selective Waveband Technology (SWT) to exclude unnecessary wavelengths of light so that only those beneficial to treatment of the brown pigmentation are delivered in precise energy pulses. These pulses result in heat that “energizes” the age spots, causing them to separate, so that they are effectively treated in 1-3 monthly sessions. The precision of the Nordlys technology has made the treatments both comfortable and fast requiring no more than 10-15 minutes. Dr. Forley has found that the hands respond remarkably well to the treatment protocol with only a single treatment needed in many cases.

HA5 REJUVENATING HYDRATOR

Monday, February 29th, 2016

Dry skin is a common problem that often defies effective solutions. It can be caused by genetics, systemic diseases, and hormonal conditions associated with the aging process. Environmental factors and procedures and products that we utilize in an effort to improve our appearance can result in dehydrated skin due to water loss through the outer skin layer. The consequences of a lack of skin hydration can lead to chronic irritation and discomfort as well as accelerated signs of aging from the free radicals that are produced due to an ongoing inflammatory reaction in the skin.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is the body’s natural hydrator. It gradually decreases with age which inhibits the ability of the skin to remain hydrated. HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator from SkinMedica provides immediate hydration and the ability to continuously hydrate the skin with a combination of 5 types of HA that includes a time release HA and a cross linked HA that works for up to 8 hours. In addition, HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator contains an antioxidant extracted from Vitis vinifera flower stem cells that improves overall  skin health by helping the skin restore its own natural hyaluronic acid. It is designed to be applied prior to a moisturizer to drive added hydration into the skin and will enhance your existing skin care regimen.

SILKPEEL3® DIAMOND DERMALINFUSION

Friday, July 31st, 2015

The new SilkPeel3® Diamond Dermalinfusion system is a non-invasive treatment that offers a technological advancement over traditional microdermabrasion in topical skin treatments of the face and body. A SilkPeel® treatment takes about 30 minutes and combines removal of the outer barrier layer of the skin with an infusion of serum into the deeper skin layers. The procedure begins with the gentle “vacuum-like” suction of your skin into a chamber in the tip of the handpiece. The suction pressure remains consistent across the face or body thereby controlling the level of exfoliation for a more precise depth of penetration of the abrasion process.

The removal of dry, dead cells from the surface prepares the skin for the infusion of the serum that has been chosen to address your specific concerns.

Solutions

 SilkPeel® Diamond Dermalinfusion can:

• rehydrate the skin
• reduce the appearance of acne scars
• improve fine lines and wrinkles
• lighten age spots and sun spots

Results will be seen after the first treatment but a series of 4-6 sessions at least 1-2 weeks apart will trigger an on-going process of improvement that produces smoother, brighter, and healthier skin.

FEAR OF FILLERS

Saturday, August 30th, 2014

As our understanding of the aging changes that occur in the face has expanded, our approach towards treatment has evolved. We now believe a combination of volume loss from atrophy of facial fat and descent of fat in discrete facial fat compartments produces the stigmata of aging such as cheek hollowing, jowls, and deepening of facial folds. Our improved understanding of the anatomical basis for aging has led to treatment strategies that utilize the addition of volume to the face in order to create a more youthful appearance.

A common desire that patients express with regard to cosmetic procedures is to maintain a natural look. A fear that is often voiced regarding the use of injectable fillers to treat volume loss in the cheeks or the folds that extend from the nose to the lip and the lip to the chin is that of looking overdone. Patients will often cite examples of celebrities to emphasize the outcome that they want to avoid. The concern is one that sometimes causes those who would clearly benefit from treatment with an injectable filler to opt out thinking it is the material itself that is flawed.

The use of injectable fillers is very technique dependent in which judgment is of paramount importance to the result. It is not so much the material that is being injected but the amount used and the proper placement that determines the outcome. It is important to seek out an injector with expertise and a good aesthetic sensibility and not succumb to a misdirected “fear of fillers”. When used appropriately, FDA approved injectable fillers offer a safe, effective, and natural result to those who want to reverse the signs of aging.
