Did cellulite make you bathing suit shy this summer?
VelaSmooth is the 1st FDA approved technology clinically proven to treat cellulite. This non-surgical treatment combines three technologies for skin tightening and circulatory enhancement to provide a smoother, tighter appearance in areas such as thighs, buttocks, abdomen and arms. Done twice a week for 6-8 wks you can finally get the smooth skin you have always wanted. Consultations are free.
Radiesse filler expands its frontiers!
Over the past year, this filler has truly come into its own. Made of a natural and soft calcium-based substance found in all of our bones, this filler has proven to last 1- 1 1/2 years making it an excellent deep filler. Now you can finally get cosmetically significant cheekbone and chin enhancements without resorting to surgery. Great for very deep smile lines as well.
Tired or tired eyes?
With great success, Dr Frank has been filling in those hollows and covering up those dark rings that drive you crazy with Restylane. Done in minutes with only topical anesthesia you can refresh the entire eye area with this natural sugar substance that lasts 6-9 months.
Skin News- What’s Hot or Just Hype?
Myxoral Sunscreen FDA approved
Now providing the most potent UVA protection on the market, this sunscreen has finally made it over from Europe. Watch for it in several soon to be released name brands. But remember, the only true sunblock is shade. No sunscreen totally protects you from the damaging effects of the sun.
SmartLipo proves to be quite silly
With the quest for fat removal at peak demands, new technologies and techniques emerge every month. This one has gotten quite a bit of press; but unfortunately, has not matched up to the hype. Soon to be FDA approved (for safety, not efficacy) this tiny laser fiber is placed under the skin with local anesthesia to melt away your woes. Unfortunately, its effect is minimal and it is applicable only to the smallest areas of fatty deposits. Still the standard of care for minimally invasive and safe fat removal is with the Tumescent Micro-Cannular Technique performed under local anesthesia. Performed since the early eighties, this technique continues its advancements with smaller cannulas and improved emulsifying devices such as the VASER ultrasound device. Dr. Frank continues to make this the mainstay of his practice, performing over 150 cases each year. See our website or come in for a free consultation to find out more.
