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.

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is the latest U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) filler from Allergan that is formulated for subtle enhancement of the lips and to treat the etched wrinkles around the mouth.

The HA in both JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC and the previously approved filler for cheek enhancement, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, was developed with advanced Vycross® technology to produce smooth, long lasting results. Vycross® technology enables treatments to be performed with a lower concentration of HA resulting in less swelling. Dr. Forley will evaluate you during your consultation to see if you are a good candidate for JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC.

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.

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.

RESTYLANE SILK

Friday, August 14th, 2015

Restylane® Silk is a small particle type of hyaluronic acid filler that provides an additional option to the choices available to patients for lip enhancement. The FDA recently approved Restylane® Silk to define the appearance of the lips as well as to improve fine, etched vertical lines and wrinkles. It is notable for its subtle, natural effect and can be injected progressively until the desired lip volume is achieved. Dr. Forley uses Restylane® Silk not only to enhance the contour of the lips but also for blending of the lid-cheek junction ( the “tear trough”)  to create a more rested, youthful look.

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.

A NEW TREATMENT FOR NECK WRINKLES

Monday, November 17th, 2014

Neck wrinkles or creases that run horizontally across the neck can appear at any age. The onset of these wrinkles is related to a combination of factors: neck anatomy, skin thickness, collagen deficiency, repetitive movement, and sun exposure. They are difficult to treat and persist even after a neck lift or facelift.

A successful method of treatment takes advantage of the unique properties present in the hyaluronic acid (HA) cross-linking technology utilized in the manufacture of BELOTERO BALANCE®. This FDA-approved filler can be safely injected into the superficial dermis of the skin to achieve a smoothing effect that is immediately visible. Since it is a non-particle type of hyaluronic acid, it can be used close to the skin surface yet remain undetectable.

Dr. Forley performs a series of tiny needle punctures for precise BELOTERO BALANCE® injection. Massage of the injection sites is then performed to achieve a blending of the filler with the surrounding skin. Some bruising may be present for a few days after the treatment but this can be reduced by adhering to the recommended protocol of anti-bruising measures. Results will generally last for 6-9 months.
