When the weather gets warm in Manhattan, that also means that event season is here. Graduations, weddings, pool parties, trips to the beach, and summer vacations all are potential photo opportunities. If you’re unhappy about some aspect of your appearance, these events also can provoke feelings of embarrassment and self-consciousness. Maybe you want to find a way to address these aesthetic flaws, but cosmetic surgery is not an option for you. Preminger Plastic Surgery still can help you by offering non-surgical cosmetic solutions that can revitalize your appearance, just in time for summer.
- Chemical peels
Turn back the clock and reduce signs of aging through a chemical peel, which entails applying a solution to your face with an active ingredient that exfoliates your skin. Depending on the type of peel you choose, treatment results include reduced redness, minimizing the signs of aging, and rejuvenating the overall appearance of your skin.
- Laser skin resurfacing
The advent of laser technology has been a boom across medical science. At Preminger Plastic Surgery, we can use our state-of-the-art carbon dioxide laser to reduce the prominence of wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation, acne or chickenpox scars, damaged skin, age spots, warts, birthmarks, or skin that has become loose and sagging. We usually recommend that patients who are interested in a laser resurfacing begin having skin treatments about six weeks prior to their appointment. You also may need to take antibiotics before the procedure and could be asked to use an ointment following the treatment to facilitate the healing process and keep your skin hydrated and moist.
Are you looking to minimize signs of aging such as wrinkles, scars, and sun damage with a procedure that will last for years? Then you should consider a Fractora procedure. Performed using InMode’s Fractora carbon dioxide laser, this procedure combines radio frequency technology and microneedling. Energy is delivered deep underneath the surface of your skin, heating the interior layers and encouraging the growth of collagen. The end results produce tighter skin, a clearer complexion, and that youthful-looking glow!
Using intense pulsed light, Lumecca can be used to treat an assortment of different dermatological concerns, including the prominence of red and brown spots, freckles, vascular lesions, redness associated with rosacea, and sun damage. Lumecca can be applied to any area of the skin that receives regular sun exposure, such as the face, neck, arms, hands, and legs. It also works fast, producing the desired results in one to two treatments. Comparatively, most other treatments using intense pulsed light (or IPL) can take four to six appointments to reach the patient’s aesthetic goals.
Botox® is the most popular non-surgical treatment that Americans use to improve their appearance. Nearly 7.5 million procedures involving Botox® were administered in 2018, according to statistics released recently by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. With a few strategically placed injections by female plastic surgeon in Manhattan, Dr. B. Aviva Preminger, Botox® reduces the prominence of fine lines and wrinkles in the face, around the eyes, or chin. This treatment also can help smooth out the appearance of loose skin in the neck, raise corners of the mouth that have begun to droop, lifting the crow, or minimizing the prominence of creases under the eyes.
- Dermal fillers
A growing method of treatment to address signs of aging on the face through non-surgical means, the use of dermal fillers can help to restore volume to the cheeks and lips, alleviate the appearance of a double chin, or address creases and wrinkles on the face. You will notice a dramatic and almost immediate difference in your appearance, without the inconvenience of undergoing cosmetic surgery with an extensive recovery. Preminger Plastic Surgery offers dermal filler treatments using Juvederm®, Radiesse®, and Belotero Balance®. Ask Dr. Preminger during your consultation which dermal filler is right for you.
