For those who often look like they are frowning, angry, tired, sad, or generally older, Botox® injections can make amazing changes to the surface of the face without surgery or a length recovery period.
Botox® works to flatten the creases and wrinkles of the face, making the patient look and feel years younger.
Botox® is the brand name of botulinum toxin type A that has been used since 1990.
Botox® is injected into muscle with a hollow needle, allowing the Botox® to be inserted at the site that will produce the best results.
Originally used by ophthalmologists to treat nervous twitching of the eyelid, Botox® has been used to successfully treat wrinkles since 1982. Botox® may also be helpful in treating migraine headaches, and can be used to decrease excess sweating of the palms and underarms.
Thanks to injectable fillers you can enhance your weak chin in a non-surgical manner with little to no down time or recovery.
A filler is ultimately injected into certain areas of the chin and molded to conform to your facial profile. Minimal topical anesthesia is used before this procedure and little aftercare is needed. Results are instant.
Sometimes referred to as Botox’s twin or first cousin, Dysport® is used to decrease facial wrinkles. It’s use and the procedure are very similar to that of Botox. Talk to a specialist at Vayda Cosmetic Laser Center to find out which is right for you.
Are you tired of drooping earlobes? Do you wish you could add volume to them? At the Vayda Cosmetic Laser Center, we can offer a simple alternative to surgery.
As we get older, our earlobes hollow out and droop. This is especially true with people who wear heavy earrings causing tears and enlarged holes. We can inject Restylane™ directly in the earlobe to replace volume. This non-surgical procedure rejuvenates earlobes by adding property dimension and projection of the earlobe towards the face.
FotoFacial®-AgeDelay™ was pioneered by Dr. Patrick Bitter Jr. over 12 years ago and has been slowing and reversing signs of aging ever since. Dr. Bitter has trained over 5,000 doctors and nurses in his special two-step technique that rejuvenates skin by correcting redness, age spots, and broken capillaries.
FotoFacial®-AgeDelay™ “is the real Hollywood anti-aging (beauty) secret. [It] is the closest we have come to the fountain of youth.” – Dr. Patrick Bitter Jr.
The Broad Band Light Therapy used during the FotoFacial®-AgeDelay™ procedure is proven to cause aged skin cells to behave like young skin cells. Patients that receive regular treatments will not only restore healthy skin, but they will also delay their skin from aging.
The sun’s rays are among the most harmful contributors to aging. Sun damage often leaves sun spots and fine lines on the skin, and significant sun exposure can also lead to skin cancer. The FotoFacial®-AgeDelay™ can effectively reduce skin damage caused by the sun.
Loss of Elasticity/Sagging
Your skin will eventually lose elasticity and begin to sag to some extent, no matter how well you take care of it. FotoFacial®-AgeDelay™ treatment boosts collagen levels in the skin to add plumpness and tighten the skin, resulting in smoothed out wrinkles and improved sagging.
Uneven Skin Tone
Uneven skin tone (e.g., discolorations and hyperpigmentation) often develops as you age, typically making you look older than you actually are. By removing discolorations and dark spots to balance out your skin tone, you’re able to look and feel more attractive.
Over time, capillaries beneath the skin become raised and may even burst. FotoFacial®-AgeDelay™ treatment effectively gets rid of these damaged capillaries without harming the surrounding tissue.
Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a good candidate for FotoFacial®-AgeDelay™ treatment?
Candidates for FotoFacial®-AgeDelay™ are in good overall health, are realistic about the outcome of their results, and have one or more of the following: age spots, rosacea, broken capillaries, fine lines, wrinkles, poor skin texture, skin laxity, or acne.
What is the recovery time associated with this treatment?
FotoFacial®-AgeDelay™ is a non-invasive treatment, which means it requires very little downtime to recover. While many patients can return to work as soon as the treatment is complete, slight redness and swelling will be apparent.
How many treatments will I need?
Although you will likely see a noticeable improvement in your appearance after just one treatment, multiple FotoFacial®-AgeDelay™ treatments are recommended to ensure optimal results. The number of treatments needed will vary based on your skin type and how much damage needs to be corrected, but most patients receive between three and five treatments at four-week intervals.
How long do the results last?
FotoFacial®-AgeDelay™ produces satisfying results that can last anywhere between one and two years from a single treatment. Patients who undergo regular procedures will see continuous age-defying results. 2 Studies have noted the proven effects of the anti-aging effects of this procedure.
At Vayda Cosmetic , we use the latest laser technology available and will help you defy the aging process and achieve overall skin rejuvenation.
Juvederm’s collection of fillers are smooth gel fillers placed under the skin to instantly smooth troublesome lines around the nose, mouth and cheeks. These fillers can also be used to rejuvenate lips and give them a natural full look that long lasting and beautiful. Juvederm’s collection of fillers offer many products that will last well over 1 year.
Juvéderm™’s unique formulation has a smoother consistency to help minimize the discomfort that can sometimes occur during the injection procedure.
Results are immediate, with virtually no recovery or downtime. The patient will notice improvement in the skin’s natural volume, and facial wrinkles and folds will be smoothed away. Treatment results typically last six to eight months.
Kybella® is a synthetic version of the naturally occurring molecule deoxycholic acid, which is produced by the human body to break down and absorb dietary fats. When Kybella® is injected into the subcutaneous (beneath the skin) fat of the submental (under the neck) region, the membranes of the targeted fat cells are destroyed. Once destroyed, the cells are no longer able to store fat. The destruction of these cells is then followed by the body’s natural elimination and healing process. This process is slow but steady, and the fat cells are typically removed from the area within four to six weeks. At Vayda Cosmetic, we will tailor your treatments to best optimize your results and eliminate your double chin in no time. Call for a consultation today!
Several years ago, physicians who were treating wrinkles with newly FDA-approved dermal fillers and BOTOX® began to notice that when they used particular products and certain injection techniques, their patient™ facial features were exhibiting a gentle lift as well. They refined their techniques to focus on lifting and contouring, with a side benefit of wrinkle reduction, and the result is the Liquid Face Lift. As applied by our board-certified physicians, a Liquid Face Lift can lift individual or overall facial features; reduce wrinkles, creases or folds; restore naturally curved facial contours, and give a more rested look and a friendlier smile.
A non- surgical nose job corrects moderate nose shape and hump reduction with Radiesse, Voluma , or Restylane Lyft. These filler are safe and effective in correcting unsightly noses in a non-surgical manner. Minimal anesthesia is used and results are instant with little downtime.
Non-surgical cheek augmentation is a non-surgical effect option using Radiesse, Voluma, or Restylane Lyft to enhance facial volume and restore a natural glowing contour, adding balance to one’s face. Little down-time occurs and patient can see results instantly.
Non-surgical eye lift is a injectable technique which can remove one’s unwanted dark circles under the eyes by using Restylane or Juvederm. PRP has been used in conjunction with fillers or as a stand alone treatment as well. These fillers are placed in and around a patients tear trough in order to decrease the sunken appearance of ones eyes. Topical anesthesia is used. Minimal downtime is expected.
Skin peels involve applying a chemical solution to remove the outer layers of damaged or blemished skin so that a smoother, more evenly pigmented, glowing layer of skin can appear. Peels can be performed on the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, and legs, and chemical peels are also used to treat melasma, which is a skin condition characterized by irregularly shaped patches of brown skin on the face and neck. There are several types of peels that can be considered, depending on the individual’s need. Our board-certified physicians will assess your skin to determine exactly which procedure to use.
This is a safe and highly effective treatment that has no downtime. This light to medium peel formula is proven to effectively treat acne, control oil, smooth fine lines and also help to inhibit the pigment production providing a more even skin tone. PCA Peel is available in the following three formulas:
PCA Peel HQ Free (non-resorcinol)
This peel is for more sensitive skin types or those allergic to hydroquinone. This peel will help unclog the pores eliminate acne and rejuvenate the skin.
PCA Peel® with Hydroquinone (non-resorcinol)
This formula is for those who want even skin tone and have no sensitivity to hydroquinone. It will correct melasma, sun damage and all pigment discolorations of any kind. It will inhibit active acne and correct post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (brown-spotting) from acne. PCA Peel® w/HQ can also be used to treat the neck and chest for sun damage.
PCA Peel® with Hydroquinone and Resorcinol
This peel is the most potent version of PCA Peel®. It is a deeper peel that will provide more exfoliation for oilier, thicker, resilient skin types. It is for extreme sun damaged skin and can also be used to treat the hands and arms. It is also excellent for those with active/cystic acne and asphyxiated skin (dry on the surface, oily underneath).
Ultra Peel™ I and II
Ultra Peel™ treatments are appropriate for all skin types, conditions and sensitivities. These treatments are especially ideal for sensitive skin, as they produce a minimal stinging sensation. Ultra Peel™ treatments will effectively treat acne, pigment disorders, aging skin, smoker’s skin and sun damaged skin.
For more dramatic results, both Ultra Peel™ I and II can be used in conjunction with microdermabrasion treatments. Ultra Peel™ II can be used alone or on top of any other Physician’s Choice™ peel, producing a lightening, tightening and brightening effect. It is a cream containing natural hormones and vitamins to provide freshening and moisturizing properties to aging skin. These natural hormones make this peel great for males, as it helps to counterbalance testosterone levels that create frequent break-outs during teenage years.
Moderate to aggressive exfoliation will be experienced, depending on the number of layers of Ultra Peel™ I. Overall, the final result will be plump and hydrated-looking skin.
The Supra Peel™ is designed for extremely sensitive and delicate skin, as there is little to no irritation or burning at the time of application. It is a moisturizing treatment due to the natural hormone and vitamin content, thus making it another great choice for aging, dehydrated and menopausal skin. Supra Peel™ contains anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and pore-refining properties, as well as de-sensitizing agents; therefore, it is a great foundation for treating sensitive acne and rosacea. Hyperpigmentation, melasma and sun damaged skin conditions will also benefit from the lightening capabilities of Supra Peel™. There is absolutely no downtime, little to no exfoliation and the end result is an immediate tightening and brightening of the skin.
Pumpkin Peel Beta-C Mask Treatment
The Physician’s Choice™ Pumpkin Peel Beta-C Mask Treatment is good for anyone at any age. It is a powerful antioxidant keratolytic treatment that can serve as an alternate between other peels and therapeutic treatments. Its main source of nutrition, pumpkin, offers more than 100 beneficial components, including the highest concentration of natural Vitamins A, C and beta-carotene.
The Pumpkin Peel has simultaneous actions: it exfoliates while introducing vitamins, enzymes and nutrients into the skin. It is an excellent treatment for smokers as it stimulates circulation, promotes healing and provides vitamin nutrition. As with all other PCA chemical peels there is no downtime. In fact, skin will be glowing and extremely healthy looking following the treatment.
Oxygenating Facial Trio
The Oxygenating Facial is an antioxidant therapy to ameliorate free radical damage. Oxidative damage is one of the more significant contributions to the aging process. The Oxy Facial Trio helps rejuvenate sluggish, tired skin due to toxins, pollutants, allergens, improper diet, solar damage, smoking and aging. Acneic conditions benefit greatly. This treatment is recommended between peel treatments when peeling is not indicated.
There are no stinging or irritating side effects. However, a rosy flush and rapid warm sensation to the skin is normal. Oxygenating treatments leave the skin radiating with a healthy look that will last seven to ten days, which makes it ideal one or two days before a special event.
Most Commonly Asked Questions
How much downtime is expected with a peel?
There is no downtime whatsoever with Physician’s Choice™ chemical peels. You can actually receive a peel on your lunch hour and return to work.
When will I start “peelings”, for how long and how much?
Everyone’s experience will be different. However, on an average, you will see flaking by day two or three following the treatment. It is possible to see flaking for up to five or six days. With all Physician’s Choice™ peels, only light to medium exfoliation will be experienced.
How irritating is a peel?
PCA peels are only slightly irritating. You may experience mild burning or stinging, which is transient.
What is the difference between the three formulas of the PCA Peel®?
The PCA Peel® HQ Free is for sensitive skin types, ethnic skin, those allergic to hydroquinone or not looking to lighten the skin. The PCA Peel® w/HQ has a stronger lightening ability; it will help even out the skin tone. The PCA Peel® w/ HQ and Resorcinol is for most resilient skin types and will provide more exfoliation. This formula is great for someone who has reached a plateau with monthly treatments and needs a more aggressive treatment.
What is the difference between the PCA Peel® versus the Ultra Peel™
The Ultra Peel™ is less sensitizing than the PCA Peel® due to the complexity of the formula. The PCA Peel® has more of a drying effect and the Ultra Peel™ has a more moisturizing effect. The PCA Peel® formulas have more instant lightening ability, whereas, the Ultra Peel™ lightening process is more gradual.
Why would Ultra Peel™ II be applied, and when?
Ultra Peel™ II will ensure more flaking and peeling post-treatment. It can be applied after any Physician’s Choice™ treatment or it can be very mild treatment used alone.
What is resorcinol? Why use the PCA Peel® w/HQ & Resorcinol and who is an appropriate candidate?
Resorcinol is an antiseptic, antifungal, astringent and flaking agent. The PCA Peel® w/HQ and Resorcinol is excellent on active acne, smoker™s skin, oily, thick, resilient skin and hand and arm treatments.
What peels are recommended for use in conjunction with microdermabrasion?
There are different ways to enhance your results by using Physician™s Choice™ chemical peels with microdermabrasion. One method: apply Ultra Peel™ I four days before a microdermabrasion treatment. Following the microdermabrasion treatment apply Ultra Peel™ II; or all in the same day administer microdermabrasion then apply Ultra Peel™ I and II; or do microdermabrasion then apply Ultra Peel™ I, Hemoglobe-I (Step 2 from the Oxy Trio) and then Ultra Peel™ II.
What skin type or condition will benefit most from the Pumpkin Peel; what results are expected?
The Pumpkin Peel is best used for asphyxiated skin or acne. It provides nutrient input and will brighten the skin. It’s also great on very sun damaged skin that has lumps and bumps.
Which peels can be used with the Oxy Trio?
The PCA Peel®, Ultra Peel™ I and II, or Supra Peel™ can all be used in conjunction with the Oxy Trio, however, not all at the same time.
Can a person who is in the sun a lot receive a peel?
Yes, only if they are compliant with using sunscreen protection. If you are getting peels to lighten the skin, pHaze 13 Light N™Block® Pigment Cream (SPF 25+) is ideal to reduce any chance of further hyperpigmentation.
What peels can be used on someone who frequently works out?
Someone who frequently works out can have any peel but must wait 48 hours after the treatment to exercise. If you don’t want to wait, the Non-Burning Facial Peel is a great choice. This treatment uses our Ultra Peel™ II which is an acid-free, time-released retinol cream. It has a delayed flaking action that creates no irritation or downtime and leaves the skin glowing and hydrated.
My skin is very thin. Why would I want to peel? Wouldn’t that make my skin thinner?
If your skin is dry and thin, often there is a buildup of dead cells that actually keeps your home care products from penetrating. Having an Ultra Peel™ treatment will remove the surface buildup, hydrate the skin and give it a plumper, “thicker” appearance. The use of Vitamin C products in the treatment, as well as in your home care program, will help to build the collagen in your skin, thus making it stronger and more durable.
Can pregnant or lactating women receive a peel?
No. We recommend only the Oxygenating Facial Trio for pregnant or lactating women.
Are there any treatments that are good for rosacea?
We have a treatment designed specifically for rosacea that incorporates products from our Pumpkin Peel, Oxgenating Trio and Supra Peel™. It helps to unclog the pores, smooth the surface of the skin and promote healing. This treatment could be done as often as every two weeks.
Can someone using Retin-A® or Accutane® have any Physicians Choice™ treatments?
We generally recommend that Retin-A® use be stopped five days prior to a peel and five days post treatment because of potential irritation and uneven peel penetration. Accutane® users tend to have very dry and sensitive skin and need to be treated only with peels that are appropriate for their skin type. We have found that the Physician’s Choice™ peel solutions are Accutane® friendly. However, your skin care specialist should always be made aware of any Retin-A® or Accutane® use.
I thought TCA was very aggressive and required a week at home for recovery. Why is this not true of your Ultra Peel™ that is 10% TCA?
Ultra Peel™ is effective because of its formulation, but works in a way that does not traumatize the skin like traditional, straight TCA peels. As with all other Physician’s Choice™ peels, there is no downtime. Following an Ultra Peel™, the skin is glowing and hydrated; exfoliation occurs more as flaking.
What is the difference between PCA and glycolic peels?
Glycolic acid will dehydrate skin and make pores larger after extended use. PCA uses lactic and citric acids which are skin-friendly because they are natural constituents of your skin. Physician™s Choice™ peels are unique because they are moisturizing and hydrating and leave your skin fresh, soft and supple, the way it wants to be!
After receiving your chemical peel, you may experience some light flaking in a few localized areas for up to five days and slight redness for one to twelve hours. Although you may or may not actually “peel” during the first one or two treatments, you will probably experience slight exfoliation and your skin will feel tight and pulled.
Patients should always follow the Home Care Regimen sheet provided by their technician, but the following post-treatment tips are also recommended to maximize the benefits to your skin:
- Do not apply any medications following treatment not recommended by your technician, including AHA products.
- It is ideal to let the skin stabilize and rest overnight, but makeup can be applied following the treatment if absolutely necessary.
- Avoid direct sun exposure and excessive heat. Use your pHaze 6+ Hydrator Plus (SPF 15) or pHaze 7 Protecting Hydrator (SPF 15), pHaze 13 Light N™ Block® Pigment Cream (SPF 25+) or pHaze 8 Face and Body Hydrator (SPF 15) for daily sunscreen protection.
- Do no pick at or pull on any loosening or exfoliating skin. This could potentially cause hyperpigmentation.
- Home use of Pigment Gel® is recommended twice a day to continue lightening hyperpigmented areas.
- Do NOT go to a tanning booth for a least three weeks before or after a treatment.
- Discontinue the use of Retin-A®/Renova® or Differin® for seven days after treatment.
- Do not have electrolysis, collagen injections, facial waxing or use depilatories for approximately five days after the treatment.
- Do not schedule another treatment until your technician advises you to do so.
For Two Days Following:
- Do not apply ice or water to the treated areas.
- Do not put the face directly into a hot shower spray. Do not use Jacuzzis, steam rooms or saunas.
- Do not go swimming or participate in activities that would cause excessive perspiration.
- Do not use Buff-Puff’s or other means of mechanical exfoliation.
- Do not direct a hair dryer onto the treated area.
- Stay cool! Getting heated internally can cause hyperpigmentation.

Port-wine stains occur most often in the face, but can appear anywhere on the body. Early stains are usually flat and pink in appearance. As a person matures, the color may deepen to a dark red or purple color.
The presence of port-wine stains can cause emotional and social problems for the affect person because of their cosmetic appearance. The procedure to remove port-wine stains will allow the patient to enjoy living with a beautiful, flawless face.
Laser treatment has made the most impact on the removal of port-wine stains, because it allows for destroying the capillaries without significantly damaging the overlying skin. There may be slight swelling, redness, or a mottled look to the skin immediately following the treatment, but these side effects are temporary. The results are permanent, but more than one treatment may be required.
PRP rejuvenation uses platelet-rich plasma. This is the same as the PRP used in microneedling with PRP. PRP can help restore skin volume and improve skin quality immediately. PRP creates a serum from your own blood, and the isolated plasma can be injected or applied onto the skin of the treated areas. There are multiple treatment PRP rejuvenation options available, including PRP with fillers, PRP injection therapy, PRP therapy used as laser resurfacing enhancement, and PRP facials. There are also other procedures that use PRP, including PRP hair restoration, WOW Shot™, POW Shot™, and PRP uplift to provide immediate and drastic improvements in your skin. Vayda Cosmetic will tailor your PRP treatment according to your needs.
HOW MUCH DOES PRP Facial REJUVENATION COST?
PRP rejuvenation treatment costs can vary based on your individual needs and which procedures are utilized to help you reach your aesthetic goals.

HOW IS PRP REJUVENATION PERFORMED?
PRP rejuvenation first requires a blood sample which is typically drawn from the arm. This blood sample is then spun in a centrifuge to isolate the plasma, which is then further altered to increase the plasma concentration. This is the PRP serum which can then be applied topically or injected into certain targeted treatment areas.
WHAT IS RECOVERY LIKE AFTER PRP REJUVENATION?
Depending on which PRP treatment option is determined to be the recommended procedure for you, recovery times vary. However, all of them are effective and have minimal recovery time in common, which is why PRP rejuvenation is increasing in popularity and a great alternative to other forms of rejuvenation.

Patients suffering from hair loss often exhibit a characteristic shrinking of the hair follicles. Over time, as the follicles shrink, they produce hair that is thinner and thinner, until they reach a point where they stop producing hair at all. Injecting Platelet Rich Plasma into the scalp can cause the shrinking hair follicles to become healthier and larger, producing thicker and fuller hair growth. Moreover, it has been found that platelet rich plasma accelerates the transition of the hair follicle from the dormant telogen state back to the actively growing anagen state, reducing the necessary recovery time after hair restoration surgery. At Vayda Cosmetic, we offer PRP Hair Restoration in conjunction with other topical treatment modalities to produce the best possible results.
More recently, Platelet Rich Plasma has proven effective as a stand-alone treatment for men and women with specific types of hair loss, particularly genetic pattern loss and some forms of traction alopecia. In some cases, PRP has even helped to regrow hair in areas afflicted with alopecia areata, eyebrow hypotrichosis, and chronic telogen effluvium. At Vayda Cosmetic, we recommend a set of three initial treatments four weeks apart followed by a repeat treatment one year after the first in order to achieve the best results. Each treatment generally takes less than an hour to perform and patients can return to work the same day with minimal pain and downtime. The cost for PRP Hair Restoration is $800 per treatment or 3 treatments for $2000.
We also utlilize AnteAge MD Hair restoration solutions. The AnteAGE MD Hair Microneedling Solution is applied then microneedled into the scalp. This solution incorporates recent advances in hair follicle science. Specialized techniques influence bone marrow mesenchymal stem cell cultures to produce conditioned media focused on hair growth (Wnt-1a pathway) while twelve bio-identical growth factors and cytokines, each with proven efficacy in hair follicle stimulation, are added to make this the most scientifically advanced product of its type for hair restoration. This therapy can be used as a stand- alone treatment or can be combined with PRP Hair restoration therapies as well. In addition we offer the Ante Age MD home hair kits as well to optimize your Hair Restoration. Teatment costs are $ 500/treatment or 3 treatments for $1400.

Radiesse® wrinkle filler is a next-generation product that does more than fill in lines and wrinkles – it restores facial volume to give you more natural and beautiful results that last. In many patients, these results may last a year or more.
How does Radiesse® wrinkle filler do it?
We borrowed a process called collagenesis directly from nature. Unlike other fillers, Radiesse® wrinkle filler makes you the magic ingredient in your own immediate wrinkle correction.
Calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel are injected into your skin through a simple, safe, and minimally invasive procedure. Once injected, the process of collagenesis starts as Radiesse® wrinkle filler works below your skin’s surface to stimulate the production of your own collagen, which replenishes lost facial volume to smooth out the signs of aging.

Restylane™ is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds.
Restylane™ is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that exists in the human body.
Restylane™ maintains its shape using the bodyÂ’s own moisture, which allows it to provide lasting results. Follow-up treatments are typically scheduled at six-month intervals.
Restylane™ has been used in more than 4 million treatments in 70 countries to correct a variety of wrinkles and to enhance the appearance of the lip border. It can be used for the treatment of facial wrinkles and folds such as nasolabial folds, the lines fro the nose to the corners of the mouth.
Restylane™ is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts by an ultra fine needle, resulting in minimal discomfort. The procedure is simple and convenient and the results are practically instantaneous.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How long does Restylane™ last?
Restylane™ is proven to deliver long-lasting results. Studies show that Restylane™ effects generally last for about six months. The unique NASHA technology helps maintain the cosmetic effect until the injected material is almost gone. Follow-up treatments are typically scheduled at six-month intervals. Individual results may vary.
Q. Where can Restylane™ be used?
Restylane™ has been used in more than 4 million treatments in 70 countries to correct a variety of wrinkles and to enhance the appearance of the lip border. It is currently approved in the U.S. for the treatment of facial wrinkles and folds such as nasolabial folds, the lines fro the nose to the corners of the mouth.
Q. What should be expected?
Each patient should take a few precautions before being treated with Restylane™. One week prior to treatment, avoid taking St. JohnÂ’s Wort, high doses of Vitamin E supplements, aspirin, and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen. These agents may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site. Also, if the patient has previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a risk that the needle punctures could contribute to another reoccurrence.
Restylane™ is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts by an ultra fine needle, resulting in minimal discomfort. The procedure is simple and convenient and the results are practically instantaneous. To optimize comfort during the short procedure, the physician may decide to numb the treatment area.
Q. Is Restylane™ safe?
Restyle has a highly favorable safety profile. It is composed of Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid, a substance found naturally in the human body. Restylane™ is biocompatible and possesses a limited risk of animal-based disease transmission or development of allergic reactions to animal proteins. No allergy testing is required before use.
Based on clinical studies, Restylane™ treatments produce a low occurrence of adverse events. The most commonly reported side effects were temporary redness and swelling at the injection site. These effects typically resolve in less than seven days.
The safety of Restylane™ for use during pregnancy, in breastfeeding females, or in patients under the age of 18 has not been established.
The safety of Restylane™ in patients with increased susceptibility to keloid formation and hypertrophic scarring has not been studied. Restylane™ should not be used in patients with known susceptibility to keloid formation or hypertrophic scarring.
The patient should be informed that he or she should minimize exposure of the treated area to excessive sun and UV lamp exposure, as well as extremely cold weather until and initial swelling and redness has resolved.
If laser treatment, chemical peeling, or any other procedure based on active dermal response is considered after the Restylane™ treatment, there is a possible risk of eliciting an inflammatory reaction at the implant site. This also applies if Restylane™ is administered before the skin has healed completely after such as procedure.
The Vayda Cosmetic Laser Center offers SkinTyte™ – a non-invasive approach to firmer skin.
SkinTyte™ utilizes ScitonÂ’s BBL™ pulsed light technology, which deeply heats the skin while cooling and protecting the entire treated surface. SkinTyte™ treatment can be administered quickly with no discomfort and no downtime. The end result is firmer skin and a more youthful appearance.
Q. How does SkinTyte™ work?
The SkinTyte™ procedure utilizes a broadband of light energy delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. This process renews the skinÂ’s collagen foundation, leading to increased firmness. Powerful cooling maintains the outer surface of the skin at a cool temperature before, during, and after each pulse of light Â– providing the patient a safe and comfortable procedure. A series of two or three treatments spaced a month apart is needed for most patients.
Q. How long is the healing process?
Some mild redness may be present in the treated area immediately following treatment, but it should subside within minutes. Because the SkinTyte™ procedure is non-invasive, there is no downtime. The patient can return to regular activities immediately following treatment.
Q. What areas can be treated?
SkinTyte™ treatments are safe for all skin types and can be performed on all areas of the body. Popular areas for treatment are the face, neck, abdomen, and arms.
Q. What results can be expected?
The SkinTyte™ procedure is not a substitute for a face-lift and results may vary from patient to patient. The SkinTyte™ procedure is recommended for those who desire moderate, noticeable skin improvements without surgery. Full results may take up to four months as the collagen foundation of the skin is rebuilt and strengthened.
Broad Based Light (BBL) therapy approach to eliminating unwanted hair provides the ultimate treatment solution, “PhotoEpilation.” PhotoEpilation leaves your skin looking and feeling smoother and softer.How does PhotoEpilation work?
Without damaging the surrounding skin, controlled flashes of light penetrate the skin and are absorbed by the hair follicles. The heat damages the hair and the regenerative matrix that regrows hair, and minimizes the potential for regrowth. Because of the significantly large spot size created by this unique technology, backs, shoulders, abdomens and legs can be treated quickly. Facial areas such as the lip, chin, and beard, can be treated in minutes.
The Vivace is a next-generation radio frequency microneedling device that delivers immediate, long-term results with a pain-free experience and no downtime.
