The California Peel

Our California Peel is a based on the ActiveFX system (a component of Lumenis’ UltraPulse® Encore®), which is a significant break-through in non-surgical facial rejuvenation.

The California Peel uses a gentle laser beam which is scanned over the skin to minimize heat build up, reduce redness or pinkness, and speed recovery time. If deeper wrinkle reduction is required, we can add the DeepFX component for a deeper peel.

While you do have to somewhat limit sun exposure, The California Peel produces immediate skin tightening and wrinkle removal, all with a minimal recovery time ranging from 4 to 7 days, with minimal discomfort.

Liposuction and Tummy Tuck Combine for Greater Satisfaction
Brunette Woman 30's

I recently read a great article in the Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (Heller, Teng, Knoll, Persing) on combining Liposuction with a Tummy Tuck in a procedure called “Lipoabdominoplasty”.

The study compared the satisfaction levels, complication rates, and revision rates for patients who had just a Liposuction, patients who had a traditional Tummy Tuck, a modified version of the Tummy Tuck (called a modified low transverse abdominoplasty), and a combination of the modified Tummy Tuck with Liposuction.

The bottom line was that patients who combined the modified Tummy Tuck with Liposuction 1) were significantly happier with the end result, 2) had much lower complication rates, and 3) had far fewer revisions than those who had traditional Abdominoplasty.

This is just one example of how the field of cosmetic surgery is constantly evolving, and learning better ways to enhance patient outcomes, and add to satisfaction levels.

As always, feel free to contact me for more information on this, or any other article in this newsletter.

Special Financing Options in Breast Augmentation
UltraPulse Woman

Breast Augmentation continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed nationwide.

In fact, according to the ASAPS, since 1997 (when ASAPS first began tracking) the number of Breast Augmentations has increased by about 295%. WOW!

It’s really no surprise. With a dizzying 140+ breast implant combinations from type of filler, volume, base width, and shape, women have more options than ever available to help enhance their natural beauty.

One of the most common questions I get from potential patients is, “what does it cost?” An independent financing partner of ours, Care Credit, has recently begun a special financing program just for Breast Augmentation patients. So, if you’ve always wanted a Breast Augmentation, but were worried about the cost, Care Credit may have the solution.
