Top 5 Cosmetic Treatments to Make Your Skin Glow in the Spring

Top 5 Cosmetic Treatments to Make Your Skin Glow in the SpringWith the end of winter arriving, it’s time to give your skin a fresh new look for spring. Ditch your dreary and dry winter complexion. With a rejuvenating cosmetic treatment or two, your skin can reflect the blossoming beauty of spring. Here are the top five non-surgical cosmetic treatments to make your skin glow this spring.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Spring is a time of healing and growth. That’s why our Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is perfect for this time of the year. During this treatment, PRP injections trigger your own platelets to generate new collagen and blood supply, improving the overall quality, tightness and texture of your skin. Best of all, after you start seeing results in 3-4 weeks, they only continue to improve over time. PRP is a long-lasting skin rejuvenation treatment that will leave your skin looking its natural best.

CoolTouch Laser

The CoolTouch laser is the first laser technology that actually makes your skin healthier from the inside out. Every time you get treated with the CoolTouch laser, small blood vessels are stimulated and new collagen is created. This softens your skin’s appearance, making it look healthier both on the outside and inside. You and your friends should notice a refreshed and healthier glow after each 10-minute treatment.

Laser Facial Therapy Using Intense Pulse Light (IPL)

Spring is all about change, so if you’re looking for a dramatic change in your appearance, IPL therapy may be the perfect option. This laser facial drastically improves the texture, tone and overall quality of your skin by harnessing the power of light. A broad-spectrum light is used to stimulate collagen growth, breakdown pigment, decrease blood vessels and shrink sebaceous glands. In just 10 to 15 minutes, IPL therapy can improve wrinkles, acne, scars, age spots and more. Your face will look more refreshed than ever.

Trinity Complex

The Trinity Complex combines three of today’s most effective cosmetic technologies to help you achieve total facial renewal. First, FotoFacial RF is used to improve your skin’s texture and color. Then, the ReFirme applicator is used to stimulate long-term collagen production and tighten existing collagen fibers, immediately producing a firmer appearance. Finally, Matrix IR delivers a smoother appearance to your skin with fast collagen renewal and remodeling.

Facials and Chemical Peels

Facials and chemical peels are used to hydrate, smooth and rejuvenate the skin. Each treatment will leave your skin looking and feeling refreshed and renewed. Depending on your type of skin and your goals, medical aestheticians can help you pick the best treatment for you. Facials can include a range of rejuvenating treatments, from laser therapy to hydrating steam and masks.

Get your skin ready for spring with the treatments above! We offer all of these treatments and more at Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery. Our expert medical aestheticians can help you pick the best treatment for your unique skin, to ensure that it will make your skin appear as radiantly healthy as possible.

 

5 Cosmetic Treatments That Actually Get Rid of Acne

5 Cosmetic Treatments That Actually Get Rid of AcneDo you find pimples cover up your beautiful face and body no matter how many products you use? It might be time for you to try something different. Not only is acne embarrassing, but it can also really hurt your self-esteem. Thankfully, there are a variety of cosmetic treatments that have proven to successfully get rid of acne and give patients clear skin. It’s time to transform your appearance and life with a different kind of acne treatment. Here are the non-surgical procedures we recommend.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy For Getting Rid of Acne

If you’re looking to get rid of your acne without pain, drugs or downtime, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy might be the best option for you. IPL is a revolutionary treatment that improves moderate to severe inflammatory acne in one of the safest ways possible. Using a broad-spectrum light, the treatment stimulates collagen growth, breaks down pigment, decreases blood vessels and shrinks sebaceous glands, leaving you with smoother and brighter skin.

Typically, you’ll need three to six IPL treatments spaced two to four weeks apart for optimal results. If you have severe acne, you may need treatments every week or two weeks to get your acne under control, and monthly treatments thereafter to keep your skin clear.

IPL Therapy for Acne

IPL Therapy Combined with ReFirme for Clearer Skin

At Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery, we uniquely use IPL therapy with ReFirme, a laser skin tightening treatment, to further improve acne-prone skin. Like IPL therapy, ReFirme is a virtually painless, safe and quick treatment with no downtime. During the treatment, a combination of bipolar radio frequency and light is used to heat the dermal tissue in the targeted treatment area. When performed with an IPL treatment, this process reduces acne and smoothes the skin.

Dermal Optical Thermolysis (DOT Therapy) for Complex Acne Cases

For those of who have severe and complex acne, Dermal Optical Thermolysis (DOT) Therapy can help. DOT Therapy uses a fractional CO2 laser to shrink sebaceous glands, blend pigment and trigger collagen growth while improving scars and skin quality.

Other than its results, one of the best aspects of this treatment is that it can be tailored to your needs. If you’re looking to have little downtime, lower settings can be used. If, on the other hand, you have severe skin issues, we will utilize more powerful settings. The procedures are always quick, effective and performed in office.

Anti-Inflammatory Injection Therapy for Cysts and Inflamed Acne

If you suffer with cysts and inflamed acne, anti-inflammatory therapy can help by rapidly reducing your inflammation and lowering the pain you may experience with deep cysts. These injections can also painlessly stop the cyst from rupturing, which in turn prevents scarring. How does it do this? The drug that is injected into your acne fights off the bacteria in your skin that forms the inflamed acne or cyst.

Within a week after your injection therapy, you should notice that the appearance of your cyst and inflammation has been diminished and your skin texture should be improved. This treatment is mostly non-invasive and is very quick.

Skin Refining Treatments and Care

Along with injection and laser therapy, there are other cosmetic treatments that can safely and effectively reduce your acne. These include the following.

  • Medical Grade Peels include retinoic and salicylic acids, which comfortably exfoliate your skin and don’t burn it.
  • Acne Facials & Microdermabrasion exfoliate, nourish and balance your skin to control your acne and reduce your risk of breaking out.
  • Medical Grade Skin Care Products contain safe and proven ingredients that effectively keep your skin healthy and reduce acne.
  • Acne Spot Treatments use a prescription strength diuretic to help prevent and control your acne.

At Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery, we offer all of the state-of-the-art treatments above with expert care, experience and attentiveness. Dr. Chernoff and our professional staff have helped hundreds of people improve their skin. If you are interested in getting rid of your acne once and for all and boosting your self-esteem, please contact us. We would love to help set you on the right path to clear skin.

Cheek Augmentation: Making Your Cheeks Look Young Again

Cheek Augmentation: Making Your Cheeks Look Young AgainBig, striking cheeks are staples of a youthful face and reveal good health. Unfortunately, as we age, our cheeks tend to hollow out and sag. Just like wrinkles, cheeks can show our old age and can even make us look older than we really are. Thankfully, cosmetic treatments and plastic surgery can bring youth back to your face. Here are a few treatments that specifically focus on making your cheeks look younger.

Juvederm Voluma Filler

You don’t need surgery to fill out your cheeks. Juvederm Voluma is FDA-approved to bring back volume to your face with injections. These injections use hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring complex sugar, to treat volume loss in the hollows of of your cheeks. Since hyaluronic acid is naturally found in humans, it adapts to each person’s unique skin qualities to make your more voluminous cheeks look natural and as beautiful as ever.

Procedure: There aren’t many cosmetic procedures that are faster than Juvederm Voluma. Typically, the treatment takes about 10 to 15 minutes to be completed, though the time can vary depending on the number of areas being treated. Injections are made by very tiny needles to shoot the hyaluronic acid into the wrinkles and fill them out. If you’re worried about pain, don’t be. The procedure is virtually painless when performed by experienced professionals like Dr. Chernoff’s physicians and nurses.

Results: After the treatment, your cheeks should appear to be naturally lifted and filled out with less wrinkles. These rejuvenating results last up to an impressive two years, delivering long-lasting improvement. Best of all, the procedure is non-invasive and requires no downtime. You may have slight swelling or bruising a couple hours after the treatment, but you should be able to return to your normal routine right away.

Endoscopic Mid-Face Lift / Cheek Lift

Sagging cheeks caused by aging create a tired and skeletal appearance in your face that is hard to hide. While traditional facelifts may not fully treat your upper cheek, mid-face lifts do. Endoscopic mid-face lifts elevate the sagging fat pad in the cheek, making your face look perkier and fuller.

Procedure: Endoscopic mid-face lift procedures take less time than traditional facelifts. During the procedure, your surgeon makes small incisions in your face to permanently stitch fat pads to your cheeks and move the tissue in your face. This brings a youthful fullness to both the eyes and cheeks. Your desired look should be determined before your surgery with the help of computer imaging. While you are undergoing surgery, you will typically be placed under a general anesthetic or twilight.

Results: If the surgeon is experienced and the patient and surgeon have determined a realistic goal for the mid-face lift, the surgery should create the desired appearance. Patients that receive endoscopic mid-face lifts from Dr. Chernoff are routinely happy with the youthful results that are seen in their cheeks and the middle of their face. After your surgery, you may need to take about one week off of work to recover. There is usually minimally bruising, but you may experience swelling from the tiny incisions that were made.

Cheek Implants

Just like with breast augmentation, implants can be used to return volume your cheeks. They help to create a more prominent and alluring cheekbone. A variety of different cheek implants are available in different sizes, shapes and materials to achieve your desired look. You will meet with your surgeon to pick implants that best suit the appearance you want and your individual face.

Procedure: The cheek implant procedure is a simple one to understand. After an incision is made in your face, a pocket is formed and the implant is properly secured. Generally, patients are placed under local anesthesia with sedation during this outpatient procedure. It usually takes no more than 45 minutes to perform.

If you’re interested in making your cheeks look younger with cosmetic treatments, contact Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery today! We will carefully take you through all of the options available for cheek augmentation so that we can work with you to find the best procedure to meet your needs and desires. Dr. Chernoff has brought youthful volume to many faces, and would love to use his experience to help you look young again.
