A Complete Non-Surgical Facelift Using FaceTite™ & Cosmetic Fillers!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, MAY 04, 2017 AT 3:44 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Patients who would like to reduce the signs of facial aging and replenish volume without undergoing traditional facelift surgery may instead benefit from a non-surgical facelift. This procedure can add natural-looking volume to the face and tighten drooping skin in one comprehensive treatment. The non-surgical facelift combines cosmetic injectables with FaceTite™ radio frequency treatment to achieve a younger-looking facial profile. Opting for a non-invasive facelift has many benefits. The non-surgical facelift results in less procedure time, downtime, and overall recovery than a standard facelift. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we offer the non-surgical facelift to restore facial definition.

Cosmetic Injectables To Add Natural-Looking Volume

Cosmetic injectables can improve wrinkles, fine lines, and hollowing in under 30 minutes using BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers. BOTOX® can temporarily ease facial muscles that result in furrows and wrinkles, while cosmetic fillers like Juvederm™Restylane®, Belotero®, Voluma™, Radiesse®, and Perlane® can add natural-looking volume to facial features and smooth fine lines. Additionally, Sculptra® can be injected into the deep dermis to stimulate collagen production and improve skin structure around the mid-to-lower face.

FaceTite™ To Reduce Sagging And Add Lift

FaceTite™ can firm lax facial skin to reduce drooping and sagging. FaceTite™ uses radio frequency energy to tighten the initial layers of skin, while also stimulating the production of collagen fibers under the surface of your skin. This results in a smoother, firmer-looking facial profile. Additionally, FaceTite™ treatment can also remove small amounts of unwanted fat, if necessary, to further enhance facial definition.

How Does A Non-Surgical Facelift Compare To Facelift Surgery?

Undergoing a non-surgical facelift can result in less healing time than facelift surgery. Non-invasive facelift patients generally experience only a few days of downtime. In contrast, a traditional facelift usually requires weeks of healing time and recovery. However, facelift surgery can yield longer-lasting facial rejuvenation results than a non-invasive facelift. Your plastic surgeon can discuss which of these procedures best fits your needs during your consultation.

5 Reasons To Consider Kybella™ To Reduce Double Chin

POSTED ON MONDAY, MAY 01, 2017 AT 10:25 AM by Dr. Jody Levine

Kybella™ is the first non-surgical double chin treatment available! This procedure can achieve natural-looking results without the need for extensive recovery time. Kybella™ targets submental fat cells underneath the chin that can take away from jawline definition. These unwanted fat cells are often extremely difficult to reduce through traditional dieting and exercise. Kybella™ can achieve long-lasting improvements to your facial profile. Here’s 5 reasons to consider Kybella™ treatment to reduce double chin!

1. Targets Submental Fat Cells That Cause Double Chin

Kybella™ can reduce double chin by eliminating excess submental fat cells. Kybella™ is made from deoxycholic acid, which is a natural substance in your body that aids in the breakdown of fat cells. Upon injection, the Kybella™ solution begins targeting submental fat cells. Over time, your body naturally breaks down this unwanted fat and removes it from your system.

2. Fast Treatments

Kybella™ treatments can be completed in under a half hour! During your procedure, the Kybella™ solution is administered through a series of injections that are strategically placed around the submental area. Multiple Kybella™ treatments are recommended for optimal results. Each Kybella™ session is spaced out approximately one month apart from the previous treatment.

3. No Recovery Time

There is virtually no healing time required after undergoing Kybella™ treatment. Some mild swelling or tenderness may temporarily occur after your procedure, but these effects should subside within a few weeks. Patients can usually resume their daily activities immediately following Kybella™ treatment.

4. Accentuates The Face And Jawline

Kybella™ treatment can enhance the contours of your chin, neck, and jawline. The reduction of a double chin can also accentuate your overall facial symmetry and add balance to your facial profile.

5. Results Are Long-Lasting

Kybella™ can achieve long-lasting improvements to jawline definition. Once excess fat cells are removed, they cannot return. However, new buildups of excess fat can occur over time. We recommend that all Kybella™ patients maintain a consistent diet and exercise routine after treatment to help sustain results.

NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, and the staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about Kybella™, as well as our other non-surgical treatments.

Your Guide To Cosmetic Fillers – Which Injectables Are Right For You?

POSTED ON THURSDAY, APRIL 27, 2017 AT 3:10 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Which cosmetic injectable is right for you? These hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers can provide temporary, natural-looking volume without the need for any downtime! Though each cosmetic injectable can reduce the signs of facial aging and accentuate facial features, they are designed to target specific conditions. Thinner dermal fillers, like Belotero® and Restylane®, can treat fine lines, Juvéderm® can plump the lips, Voluma® can address hollowed cheeks, and Radiesse® can volumize the lower face. These cosmetic fillers may also be combined to achieve substantial results in one comprehensive treatment. See which filler(s) can best fit your procedure goals below.

Belotero®

Belotero® is specially designed to target fine lines close to the surface of the skin. Belotero® has a thinner, lighter consistency than other dermal fillers, making it an ideal option to be injected superficially to fill mild facial lines around the chin, mouth, and lips, as well as under the eyes.

Restylane®

Restylane® fillers can accomplish a variety of procedure goals. Restylane® Silk is a lighter option that can target superficial smile lines, as well as wrinkles around the eyes. Additionally, Restylane® Silk can be used to plump the lips. Restylane® Lyft is a thicker filler that is injected into the deep dermis to provide natural-looking volume. Restylane® Lyft can fill hollowed cheeks and moderate-to-severe wrinkles around the midface.

Juvéderm®

Juvéderm® dermal fillers can volumize superficial facial wrinkles, as well as deeper folds. Juvéderm® fillers are extremely versatile and can target nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and lip lines. Juvéderm® Ultra is thinner and ideal for fine lines found closer to the surface of the skin, while Juvéderm® Ultra Plus is thicker and designed to treat deeper wrinkles and creases.

Voluma®

Voluma® can add lift and fullness to the cheeks. This filler has a thicker consistency than most other cosmetic injectables, allowing it to be injected into the deep dermis to correct hollowing. Voluma® can achieve longer-lasting results than other hyaluronic acid-based fillers.

Radiesse®

Radiesse® can restore lost volume to the lower face and reduce sagging by adding lift to your facial features. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, Radiesse® is made from calcium-based microspheres, which help restore fullness and encourage the production of new collagen to enhance skin structure and elasticity. Radiesse® can target the chin, as well as wrinkles around the mouth.

NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, and the staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about Belotero®, Restylane®, Juvéderm®, Voluma®, and Radiesse®, as well as our other cosmetic injectables.

Ideal BodyTite™ Treatment Areas – Firm & Shape Your Body!

POSTED ON MONDAY, APRIL 24, 2017 AT 1:42 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

BodyTite™ is a revolutionary treatment to tighten drooping skin and remove small amounts of excess fat in one minimally invasive procedure! Patients looking to firm the arms, breasts, midsection, or thighs can opt for the innovative BodyTite™ system. Radio frequency (RF) technology liquefies fat cells and safely removes them from the body, while also tightening skin layers. BodyTite™ allows for precise body contouring results with minimal downtime and can be used on multiple parts of the body to achieve comprehensive improvements to your physique. Learn more about some of these ideal BodyTite™ treatment areas below.

BodyTite™ For The Arms – Firm The Arms

BodyTite™ delivers radio frequency energy to the arms to achieve slender, more-toned arms. During your BodyTite™ procedure, a specialized electrode is placed on your skin and a tiny cannula is inserted beneath your skin. Together, these two devices send RF energy to the skin’s lower layers, tightening skin and encouraging the production of new collagen fibers to enhance skin structure and elasticity. Additionally, small amounts of arm fat can be removed during BodyTite™ treatment.

BodyTite™ For The Breasts – Lift The Breasts

BodyTite™ can be used to carefully raise the breasts to a more youthful position. The BodyTite™ breast lift, also known as a scarless breast lift, can address sagging breasts without the need for traditional breast lift surgery. The BodyTite™ breast lift may be an ideal procedure for mothers bothered by lax breast skin after pregnancy or breastfeeding.

BodyTite™ For The Abdomen – Tighten The Midsection And Flanks

Both the abdomen and flanks can be targeted using the BodyTite™ system to achieve firmer-looking results. Loose skin around these areas may result in abdominal bulging or love handles. BodyTite™ can tighten hanging skin and remove small amounts of belly fat to achieve a slimmer, more contoured midsection.

BodyTite™ For The Thighs – Slim The Thighs

BodyTite™ for the inner thighs can achieve a firmer-looking lower body by addressing skin laxity and excess thigh fat. Unlike a surgical thigh lift, using BodyTite™ for the thighs requires minimal downtime and recovery.

Hair Restoration Overview: Know Your Hair Loss Options!

POSTED ON MONDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2017 AT 10:15 AM by Dr. Elie Levine

Which hair restoration option is right for you? There are a variety of different hair loss treatments available to encourage the growth of thick, healthy hair and improve areas of thinning hair. NeoGraft, PRP for hair loss, Lasercap LCPRO, and the HRS-10 Hair Regrowth System can each achieve a fuller, natural-looking head of hair, but which one best fits your needs? Discover the benefits of each of these innovative hair restoration options with our comprehensive hair loss solution guide.

NeoGraft

NeoGraft can transplant healthy hair follicles to areas of balding. Your hair follicles are carefully extracted from an area with ample hair (oftentimes the back of the head) and preserved in a moist environment. Next, these follicles are implanted into areas of thinning hair to thicken the hairline. NeoGraft’s hands-free technique ensures a high survival rate among the transplanted hair follicles.

PRP Hair Treatment

PRP hair treatment uses platelet rich plasma therapy to stimulate the growth of new hair. During PRP hair restoration, your blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to isolate your platelet rich plasma. Once separated, your platelet rich plasma is injected into the scalp to encourage the growth of thick, healthy hair.

Lasercap LCPRO

Lasercap LCPRO is a non-invasive hair loss treatment that can promote the growth of new hair for patients affected by androgenetic alopecia (pattern baldness). Lasercap sends lower level laser therapy to your hair follicles, extending hair growth cycles. The Lasercap device is completely portable and can fit underneath a hat or cap to remain unnoticeable. Hair loss patients should wear the Lasercap LCPRO device for approximately 36 minutes every other day during treatment for optimal results.

HRS-10 Hair Regrowth

The HRS-10 Hair Regrowth System is a comprehensive 3-step solution for hair loss. HRS-10 consists of a volumizing shampoo that can add thickness and shine to your hairline, a replenishing conditioner that protects roots, and a hair growth serum that improves thinning and ensures proper hair growth. This non-surgical hair restoration treatment can restore fuller, healthy-looking hair.
