How can I look younger, but not like I’ve had work done?

Q: How can I look younger, but not like I’ve had work done?  A: Each year, facial plastic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish sees more and more men who are coming in for rejuvenating treatments. “My injectable Lunchtime Lift™ is really popular with men because they can look 10 years younger in less than an hour, with little or no downtime. I use fillers to put volume back in the cheeks, temples, laugh lines, marionette lines and hollows underneath the eyes,” Dr. Danish explains. “You look natural and masculine, like a younger version of yourself.” No-downtime laser facial treatments help to regenerate collagen, minimize fine lines and correct discoloration, including redness. Men also are coming in for brow lifts and upper and lower eyelid lifts. “My one-hour Lunchtime Lift™ is a mid-face lift that rejuvenates the lower eyelids, cheeks, laugh lines and jowls. It produces immediate, long-term results,” Dr. Danish says. “I customize the facelift depending on the patient’s anatomy, skin type and aging, so I need to see the gentleman for a...

What types of laser treatments will give me smoother skin with no downtime?

Q: What types of laser treatments will give me smoother skin with no downtime? A: There have been major advances in permanent laser hair removal that make treatments quick, essentially painless, and without downtime, says facial cosmetic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish. M.D., F.A.C.S. “The old lasers used to hurt quite a bit and there was a higher risk for adverse skin reactions like scarring and discoloration. We use the Lumenis LightSheer laser which is much more comfortable,” she says. “The laser treats all skin types and can remove hair permanently from all parts of the body, including sensitive areas like the bikini line. We can treat larger areas like the back or the legs within 20 minutes. This advanced technology allows for no scarring or discoloration and produces great results, with smooth, hairless skin after about six treatment sessions. “Laser photo facials also have no downtime or risk of scarring and can help with  discoloration, including redness, and help with regenerating collagen, minimizing pores and fine lines, and reducing acne breakouts by killing bacteria in the skin,” Dr. Danish explains. “We do about six treatment sessions, and afterwards, you have smoother, healthier, glowing skin.” Dr. Danish recommends a facial analysis and consultation to determine the treatment options that will help her patients look younger and fresher and will give them the very best...

How can I look ten years younger in just one hour?

Q: How can I look ten years younger in just one hour? A: The one-hour Lunchtime Lift™ is a popular in-office, mid-face lift that rejuvenates the “triangle” – the lower eyelids, cheeks, laugh lines and jowls. “The procedure restores the natural curves and youthful fullness of the face, turning back the clock more than a decade,” says facial plastic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish. “It requires minimal recovery time and produces immediate, long-lasting results.” With the injectable Lunchtime Lift™, Dr. Danish uses a range of FDA-approved injectables to help her patients look ten years younger in less than an hour and with little to no downtime. “I generally inject fillers into the cheeks, the laugh lines, and the chin area, and under the eyes, if needed. Some patients may require Botox for forehead wrinkles, frown lines or crow’s feet,” she says. “I perform all of the injections myself so my patients will look rejuvenated and natural, not like they’ve had surgery or injections.” Dr. Danish recommends a facial analysis and consultation if you are thinking about having a cosmetic procedure. “Every woman’s facial anatomy, skin type and degree of aging differ, and one procedure does not fit all. We discuss the treatment options that will help the patient look younger and fresher and will give them the very best...

How can I look younger without having surgery?

Q: How can I look younger without having surgery? A: “There are excellent noninvasive and non-surgical interventions that will make you look up to 10 years younger,” says facial plastic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish who sees more and more men seeking rejuvenating treatments. “For men who have deep frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet, I recommend Botox injections about every 4 months which will cause the muscles to relax and the lines to disappear. “A lot of men have deep indentations in their lower eyelids due to a loss of collagen. These ‘tear troughs’ make them look fatigued and aged. Injecting a filler will make the lower lids look more rested and more youthful. “Laugh lines, marionette lines, loss of volume and flattening of the cheeks can be addressed with injections that cause a lifting of the face which looks natural and masculine, and not like you’ve had intervention,” adds Dr. Danish.  “Some men have bands in their neck which also can be remedied with Botox. “The finishing touch can be laser treatments to make the skin glow and remedy age spots, redness and fine...

How can I achieve a natural, harmonious, more youthful look?

Q: How can I achieve a natural, harmonious, more youthful look?   A: Sometimes people think that one procedure will answer all of the issues that come with aging. In reality, aging is a multidimensional, multifactorial process, says facial plastic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish, M.D., F.A.C.S. “I recommend, first of all, that you take care of issues that have to do with gravity and skin laxity. If you have droopy eyelids, bags under your eyes, jowls or a lot of loose skin in your neck, in general, the answer is a surgical procedure. “As each year goes by we lose volume in terms of fat and collagen, so your face becomes flat and you develop laugh lines and marionette lines. Having surgery does not replace the need for injectables, which are generally recommended for volume loss,” Dr. Danish explains. “The last factor is skin care. You should consider using good skin products and having procedures such as facials, glycolic peals or laser facials. “The answer to having a natural harmonious look is considering surgery when it’s appropriate, considering fillers or injections when it’s appropriate, and taking good care of your skin.” Dr. Danish recommends a facial analysis and consultation to determine the treatment options that will give you the very best, natural-looking...

Which cosmetic procedure can best rejuvenate my look for the New Year?

“Every woman’s facial anatomy, skin type and degree of aging differ, so one procedure does not fit all,” says Dr. Myra Danish, M.D., F.A.C.S. “I recommend a consultation and facial analysis to determine what is the minimum the patient needs to look younger and fresher. We discuss the options that will give them the best results.” For some patients, injectables are all that’s needed. Injectables are ideal for crow’s feet, forehead lines, frown lines, laugh lines and marionette lines, as well as adding volume to correct flattening of the checks. With the injectable Lunchtime Lift™, Dr. Danish uses a range of FDA-approved injectables to help her patients look ten years younger in less than an hour and with little to no downtime. “My analysis may show that they require plastic surgery such as upper and lower eyelid lifts, a brow lift, or a facelift. There are several different types of facelifts — a full facelift, a mini version. The midface Lunchtime Lift ™ can restore the patient’s facial anatomy to where it was over a decade ago in just one hour.” Dr. Danish may recommend nonsurgical skin treatments, including laser photo facials, glycolic peels and deeper peels to treat sun damage, uneven pigmentation, redness and spider veins. “All of my patients look rejuvenated and natural, not like they’ve had work done,” Dr. Danish...
