Eryfotona Actinica is now available in our office for existing patients

We’re excited to carry this new sunscreen lotion that has not only sunscreen, but also enzymes that correct the DNA damage wrought by the sun, and even vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant.

Photolyase is a naturally occurring enzyme designed to reverse the specific DNA mutations caused by UV exposure.   This enzyme is found mainly in plants and algae, and they rely on it to correct DNA damage from the sun.  Human beings do not normally have this enzyme.

INTRODUCING THE 25 MINUTE BODY CONTOURING TREATMENT

SculpSure is a breakthrough in light-based body contouring designed to reduce stubborn fat in problem areas such as the abdomen and love handles, helping you achieve a slimmer and natural looking appearance without surgery or downtime.  The procedure is noninvasive and FDA approved.

Even with diet and exercise, most people have stubborn pockets of fat that seem impossible to lose. SculpSure’s body contouring technology is able to target and destroy these fat cells in just 25 minutes without affecting the skin’s surface.

Over time, these damaged fat cells are naturally absorbed and removed from the body, with results seen as quickly as six weeks, and optimal results typically seen at 12 weeks. There is no recovery time following treatment, so you can resume your daily activities immediately.

Introducing Kybella – Say Goodbye to Your Double Chin

AccuVein

We are pleased to announce that we now utilize the AccuVein device to help minimize bruising during cosmetic injections. AccuVein is a state-of-the art vein mapping system that displays a map of all of the veins on the surface of the skin, minimizing bruising from needle injections. Our doctors are using AccuVein for patients undergoing fillers, Botox/Dysport/Xeomin, and sclerotherapy.

 

Now Offering THE RUNNER’S LIFT

The Runner’s Lift is the first and only cosmetic treatment to specifically address the anti-aging needs of runners and athletes. Repetitive high-impact exercise places runners and certain athletes at risk for premature aging, facial skin sagging, and facial volume loss in places where fullness is needed to look young.

Incorporating deep tissue tightening, injectable fillers, and a personalized home regimen, the Runner’s Lift is the best nonsurgical treatment to reverse premature aging. By intervening early, we additionally protect the skin from future damage. Our special fillers encourage the body to produce its very own collagen over time. Therefore, the Runner’s Lift yields both an immediate result (from the tissue tightening and filling) as well as a gradual, delayed result (from product of new collagen).

The Runner’s Lift takes approximately 90 minutes in one office visit. You will be awake for the duration of the entire procedure and no cuts or stitches are needed. After the procedure, you may experience a few hours of mild redness and small temporary bruises from the injections. There is no post-procedure pain and almost all patients return to work the next day.

The Runner’s Lift is now offered exclusively at Madfes Aesthetic Medical Center. For more information please visit: www.runnerslift.com or call (212) 249-8118.

Kybella

Now offering the latest FDA-approved treatment for submental fat, also known as a double chin, Kybella™.

How it works

Kybella™ is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule produced in the liver to break down fat.  It targets the fat cells and destroys them, so that fat cannot reaccumulate.  In April 2015, it won FDA approval for being the first nonsurgical treatment for moderate-to-severe fat below the chin, known as submental fat.

The procedure

Kybella™ is administered via injection using small needles.  The skin is anesthetized with a numbing cream beforehand.  On average, 40 injections are placed and two to five sessions may be needed to achieve the desired outcome.  Each treatment session typically lasts 15-20 minutes and patients find it very bearable, with only minimal pain from the injections.  Sessions are spaced one month apart.

Am I a good candidate?

Kybella™ works best in patients who have submental fullness, or double chin, but not when there is a lot of redundant skin or very prominent muscular bands (platysmal bands).  Kybella™ is an alternative to liposuction in the neck with less downtime.

Downtime

The downtime with Kybella™ is minimal compared with surgery or liposuction.  The most common side effects of Kybella include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness in the treatment area.  You may return to work after 24 hours.

Results

You can expect to see results after several weeks.  In studies, over 65% of patients reports improvement in the appearance of the double chin.
