Dr. Joon Lee, Medical Director of Scarsdale Aesthetic Medicine, wants to help people achieve beauty from “the inside out.” She has been providing non-invasive cosmetic skin treatments to help people look younger and rejuvenated since 2006, always offering the latest anti-aging treatments.[This post is sponsored content.]
To Restore Volume: DERMAL FILLERS
“When people age, their cheeks start to sag which can make you look sad, tired and worried,” says Dr. Lee. “Dermal fillers can enhance your contour and restore fullness to your cheeks instantly. It is a non-surgical mini face lift. ” By stimulating production of the body’s natural collagen, Sculptra (PLLA), RESTYLANE and JUVEDERM (hyaluronic acid fillers) replenish subcutaneous fullness in the face.
Juvederm or Restylane takes only 15 to 20 minutes to administer, with almost no recovery period and immediate results. Fillers can also be used to make lips look fuller or in the hands to make them appear younger and smoother. Results usually last six to nine months. “Less is more,” says Dr. Lee regarding dermal fillers. If it’s overdone, these collagen based fillers can look unnatural.
Sculptra is better for people who prefer a natural look; it usually entails two to three treatments, four weeks apart. The results show gradually over six months and last for over a year. Sculptra helps the face create its own collagen, increases volume, and smooths the whole face gradually. Dr. Lee says that this product has subtle results and gives a person a much more natural look than fillers do.
To Reduce Wrinkles: NEUROTOXINS
Dr. Lee believes neurotoxins give a patient “the best return on your investment.” Neurotoxins come from purified Clostridium botulinum bacteria. They are typically injected into muscles in the face to reduce the appearance of frown lines and wrinkles. The effects last three to six months. They help maintain the elasticity of facial skin and facial muscles, and prevent aging. Neurotoxins can also be used for medical conditions such as migraine headaches or excessive sweating. When a neurotoxin is placed right under the facial skin (intradermally), it reduces oil production and also reduces acne.
To Brighten and Tighten: LASERS
PicoSure is a laser skin rejuvenation procedure delivered in pico-seconds. It can get rid of sun damage, acne scars, brown spots, and wrinkles on the face, neck and hands. It can be done monthly and produces a naturally youthful look. This is a miracle laser with no down time and amazing results.
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is a skin brightening light therapy that can get rid of redness, sun damage, brown spots and rosacea. It can also be done monthly to keep your face clean and bright.
What About Sagging Skin? NON-INVASIVE FACELIFT
Ultherapy is a FDA-approved and non-invasive face lift treatment. It uses ultrasound energy to heat tissue under the skin and create collagen production. After one or two treatments, a person will see the gradual effect over three to six months. Dr. Lee says this is good for tightening up the lower face and neck, losing the double chin, or getting an eyebrow lift without the “botox look.” She advises, however, that people with very thin faces not use this treatment.
“Threading is the best lift short of surgery.” During this 15 to 30-minute procedure, Dr. Lee inserts small threads into the skin that are used to tighten skin, lift a sagging jawline, and improve smile lines. A ‘barb’ lift gives more dramatic and rapid results.
An injection of hyaluronic acid into the jawline, Mesotherapy helps with double chins, “turkey neck,” and sagging jawlines.
