The Amazing ‘Second Skin’

May 17th, 2016

The idea sounds like a fantasy: an invisible film that can be painted on your skin and give it the elasticity of youth. Bags under the eyes vanish in seconds. Wrinkles disappear!

And undereye bags are just the start. You can soak the film with sunscreen and protect yourself without worrying about sweat or water washing it away, researchers said. They expect it can be used to treat eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions by covering dry itchy patches with a film that moistens and soothes.

Scientists at Harvard and M.I.T. have discovered that it is not fantasy at all. The researchers said a “second skin” composed of commonly used chemicals deemed safe by the Food and Drug Administration can accomplish that — and in small studies, so far no one has reported irritation or allergic reactions.

Those studies included tests on people with undereye bags and those with dry skin on their legs. In one study, participants put second skin on their forearms to see how quickly the skin returned to normal after it was pinched in a suction cup — a test of elasticity. In another study, people were randomly assigned to use second skin or a placebo under their eyes. Trained observers graded the subjects on the appearance of the undereye skin. The product’s durability was tested in volunteers who wore it while running in heat and working up a sweat, while swimming, and while going out in a rainstorm.

We are eager to see what comes of this.


We are now offering KYBELLA! The double chin eliminator!!

March 29th, 2016

We are excited to finally offer a treatment that can get rid of stubborn fat, in the most stubborn area!

The FDA approved a new drug that promises to get rid of double chins without surgery.

The magic drug is called Kybella, and it is an injectable substance that dissolves fat under the chin.

What is it?

Kybella is a version of deoxycholic acid, “a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown of dietary fat,” according to its manufacturer, Kythera Biopharmaceuticals.

How does it work?

“It disrupts the fat cells” and “When it disappears, it disappears permanently.” Dr. Derek Jones, presented Kybella to the FDA

He also said that the drug destroys the fat cell’s membrane, causing it to burst. What remains of the fat cell is absorbed back into the body “via normal metabolic pathways”

What’s recovery like?

It takes two to three days to heal, no bandages are required.

Who isn’t a good candidate for it?

People with a lot of excess skin under their chin and neck aren’t good candidates for this treatment.

Are there side effects?

Yes, side effects are bruising, swelling and temporary numbness.

We are happy to schedule a free consultation and go over, in detail the results you can expect from Kybella!


Thanks to a steady diet of lasers, lights, and needles, middle-aged celebs look younger than ever.

In the last decade, the “enhancement” game has changed. A 40-something might not be going under the knife for a major overhaul, but chances are she is doling out for frequent minor tune-ups, which can be even more effective at stopping the clock. So when a star like Jennifer Lopez took to Twitter last year to denounce claims that she’s “had plastic surgery of any kind,” she might well have been telling the truth. The fact is, with the nonsurgical treatments available now, she hasn’t had to.
Among the more effective treatments available is Botox, which is best to start injecting before deep wrinkles occur. We recommend treating lightly, so you retain expressions but don’t have lines at rest.
Injectables are still the dermatologic indulgence that everyone likes to deny. Over-filled lips, a puffed-out “monkey mouth,” and inflated cheekbones are so stigmatized that we only see them on Bravo. But the truth is that A-listers are still filling up, and doing so frequently. It’s just harder to discern because fillers can be administered in microdroplets with a tiny needle, resulting in a more natural look. Perhaps that’s why they’re being used to restore volume in areas that were rarely considered before, like around the temples and hands.
Some of the most dramatic advancements in skincare, however, have been in the realm of tightening and firming. Ultrasound treatments (like Ultherapy), are making it possible to restore texture and tone quickly with minimal recovery time.
And of course skin resurfacing lasers, like the Pixel are always a favorite because of the overall benefits to the skin including reducing fine lines, improving brown spots and an overall brightening of your skin.


Regrow and Thicken Hair Without Surgery

October 8th, 2015

PRP on Good Morning America

A new hair-loss treatment is giving hope to millions of people with thinning hair.

The treatment, called Platelet Rich Plasma therapy — or PRP — could help regrow and thicken hair without surgery, drugs or expensive treatments, experts say.

PRP relies on the patient’s own platelets. The patient’s blood is drawn and placed in a machine, where the plasma is separated from the blood and injected directly into that patient’s scalp.

The platelets contain growth factors that stimulate the regrowth and thickening of hair follicles.

The research is preliminary, but it’s promising, experts say.

“This is the best kept secret in the world,” Dr. Jeffrey Rapaport, a New Jersey dermatologist, told ABC News.

Tanisha Jimenez has used PRP and she says it has worked for her.

Jimenez said that years of pulling her hair back caused her to lose some around her face. Just weeks after her first treatment, her hair started to regrow, she said.

“It’s amazing,” she said.

Rapaport noted, though, that this isn’t considered a cure for baldness.

“It’s a treatment … What we’re doing is increasing the diameter of the size of the hair follicle,” he said. “And we’re keeping the hairs that would stop growing in the growing phase.”

The best candidate for PRP is someone who has recently started losing hair. It won’t work for those who are completely bald, and it won’t regrow all the lost hair, he said.

It is recommended to have one treatment per month for the first four months and then two maintenance treatments per year.
