Dr. Alex gave a presentation discussing the various aspects of the liquid facelift and what works for each person. The liquid facelift is a treatment customized for each person which uses liquid products to provide a facelift result without surgery. Products included in the liquid facelift include Botox, various dermal fillers, and Kybella. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expression. The most common areas treated with Botox are the horizontal lines seen on the forehead when we raise the brows, the vertical lines seen between the brows when we frown, and the crow’s feet seen around the eyes when we smile or squint. Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Voluma, and Volbella restore lost volume to the face. Juvederm works well to address the nasolabial folds, or laugh lines. These are wrinkles that go from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth; sometimes they extend as marionette lines to the jawline. Dr. Alex uses Restylane to fill in hollowing under the eyes. Voluma is used to restore volume in the mid-face. It gives the apple of the cheek that is lost over time and pulls the lower face upward, improving the nasolabial folds, marionette lines and jowls. Volbella is the newest filler and is used for fine lines on the lips or around the mouth. Kybella is the first and thus-far only FDA-approved, non-surgical, injectable treatment for the double chin. When injected into the skin Kybella will dissolve the fat and it is naturally eliminated by your body slowly over time. A series of two to four Kybella treatments is recommended over several months.
We were excited to present our newest laser: the fractional CO2 by Deka. Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing can address multiple aspects of aging in a single treatment including fine lines, wrinkles, loose skin, dark spots, acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks. Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing works by creating thousands of microscopic holes in the skin and generating heat. This stimulates your body to produce its own natural, new, fresh, and healthy collagen, thereby tightening the skin and helping with wrinkles, looseness, scars, and stretch marks. Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing also allows for discolorations to come out of the skin. As this is an aggressive treatment, most people have about one week of recovery time (redness and swelling). However, we now have a lighter version of the fractional CO2 laser resurfacing with a shorter recovery time of three to four days which allows for healing to occur over a weekend.
We also featured a new product by Alastin called the Restorative Complex. Alastin is a skin care line originally designed for pre- and post-procedure to enhance results and reduce recovery time. The proprietary Tri-Hex peptide technology in the Alastin Skin Nectar stimulates the formation of collagen and elastin, proteins that keep the skin firm and tight, and clears the deeper layer of the skin, allowing for faster healing after a treatment. The Alastin Skin Nectar is specifically designed to be used before and after treatments. The new Alastin Restorative Complex is designed for everyday use and includes other ingredients to volumize the skin, making it an ideal complement to fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Voluma, and Volbella.
Dr. Alex’s presentation was followed by live demonstrations of Botox, Volbella, and fractional CO2 laser resurfacing. Patients had the opportunity to observe these treatments. Botox was used to address wrinkles on the forehead and to lift the brows. Volbella was used to improve fine lines around the mouth. And the fractional CO2 laser was used to rejuvenate the face.
We were delighted to welcome our two new staff members: Michele and Katherine. Guests had the opportunity to take photographs on the Red Carpet. Light refreshments were provided and all guests went home with a gift bag full of skin care products. Generous support was provided by Allergan (makers of Botox, Juvederm, Voluma, Volbella, Kybella, and Latisse), Alastin (makers of the Skin Nectar and Restorative Complex), and Monarch lasers. We look forward to seeing our patients at upcoming events.
The Grammy's. The Oscars. The Evening of Glamour. A E Skin held its fourth annual Evening of Glamour on Thursday March 10, 2016 at our office in Encino. With over 40 people in attendance, it was another great turnout. We were delighted to celebrate the red carpet season with so many of our valued patients. One night only exclusive specials were available on all products and services including Botox, Juvederm, Voluma, Ultherapy, Kybella, IPL photofacials, and more. The newest treatment available was Kybella, the first and only FDA approved non-surgical injectable treatment for the double chin. Refreshments were provided courtesy of Allergan, makers of Botox, Juvederm, Voluma, Kybella, and Latisse. Support was also provided by Elta MD and IS Clinical. We had two stations where our guests had opportunities to learn more about our products and treatments: Allergan (makers of Botox, Juvederm, Voluma, Kybella, and Latisse) and IS Clinical (makers of the Active Serum). As always the red carpet was available for photo opportunities and we had video testimonials on various products and services. We were excited to give out over $4,000 is prizes. Best dressed won an Ultimate Rejuvenation treatment, a $2,300 value. We also held our popular Botox vial contest where our guests guessed the number of Botox vials in our jar. The person with the closest guess won 20 units of free Botox. In our raffle, we gave away even more prizes including A E Skin and Elta MD skin care products and treatments such as an IPL photofacial, Soft and Smooth Rejuvenation, Tight and Bright Rejuvenation, and Fountain of Youth Rejuvenation. Many of these products and treatments are now available on our online store. We thank all of our valued patients for their attendance and we hope to them again at our Summer Soiree in June. Thank you for your support!
A E Skin held our third annual Evening of Glamour on Tuesday March 31, 2015 at 6 PM in our office. This was an outstanding opportunity for our patients to learn about our new treatments and take advantage of exclusive specials. As usual we had light refreshments, photo opportunities on the Red Carpet, an exciting raffle with prizes including skin care products and treatments, and gift bags for all of our guests. This year we featured Voluma and Ultherapy, two new and exciting treatments that address age-related changes in the face. Voluma is a new dermal filler made by the same company that makes Botox which provides the youthful volume and structure to the upper cheek, providing an instant lift. People get instant results and enjoy their results for up to two years. Ultherapy uses ultrassound to provide focused and targeted energy to stimulate new, fresh, and healthy collagen in the deep laters of the skin. These are the same layers addressed with a surgical facelift, but without the incisions, anesthesia, and recovery time. Most people have a single treatment. Results are seen in three to six months and people enjoy their results for a few years. The combination of Voluma and Ultherapy provides an outstanding non-surgical facelift The highlight of the night was a live demonstration of Ultherapy on an actual patient. Everyone had a great time and we are excited to treat all of our patients. Our next event will be our Botox Bonanza on Tuesday April 28, 2015 and Thursday April 30, 2015.
