October 2018 – Beautiful Skin!

October 2018 – Beautiful Skin!

Q: Dr. Danish, my skin is looking more tired every year. How can I bring back the complexion I had in my younger years? A: Oh the things we take for granted! The quality of your complexion is under attack every day, as your skin is exposed to the elements, harsh environments, cosmetics, stress, nutrition and even poor sleep. Each one of these compromises the look and texture of your skin, particularly on your face, neck and hands. Year after year, these take a toll on the natural glow and elasticity of your skin. The good news is, we have a terrific set of procedures to restore the youthful appearance of your skin, visibly turning back the clock! Each treatment is carefully matched to your own unique set of challenges, based on an in-depth analysis of your skin and your desired outcome. For more complete results, many patients choose laser resurfacing, chemical peels or dermabrasion. We also have a full menu of less invasive procedures with little to no ‘downtime’ including laser facials, radio frequency skin tightening/ contouring and microneedling. “If you’d like to look younger, but surgery is just not for you – there is good news! Start today and enjoy the fall season looking and feeling your best.” – Myra Danish, MD, FACS...

September 2018 – Be Fabulous at Any Age!

Whether you are 35 or 75, you want to look young and vibrant. Today, there are steps we can take to slow and yes, reverse the signs of aging! Our goal is to manage the aging process so you are at your best at every age. Gravity, loss of volume and loss of elasticity are the main culprits, and all of these are addressed with effective treatments and procedures performed in our office with minimal down-time and virtually no discomfort. The big news is this: we’ve taken the fear out of the facelift! Gone are the days of the pulled, unnatural looking facelift. Now, in the right hands, you’ll look soft and natural with a smooth and youthful appearance. There are three types of ‘lifts’ available to you, each designed for a specific desired result. The Minilift corrects the early signs of aging in the neck and jowls, and actually improves the way you age over time. This is particularly effective for those in their 40s and 50s, when faster healing and better muscle tone aid in a quick recovery time. The Lunchtime Lift addresses the mid-face area,gently lifting the cheeks, jowls and lower eyelids to restore the natural curves and fullness in your face. This creates both an immediate and long lasting youthful appearance, and slows the effects of gravity over time. The full Facelift addresses the neck, jawline and mid face, bringing back the definition that years have taken away. Our techniques today allow for a completely natural look that is both fresh and age appropriate, never looking pulled or artificial. “Looking naturally young and beautiful is...

July 2018 – Be All You Can Be

Q: Dr. Danish, I’ve always been told my nose gave me “character”. As I get older, it seems more pronounced – Is this a normal part of aging? Are ‘nose jobs’ just for teenagers? What are my options? A: I love this question! Many people think that rhinoplasty (“a nose job”) is just for younger people, to correct an obviously mismatched size or shape. With aging, the nasal support systems including the cartilage weaken, resulting in droopy tips, lengthening or flattening and other changes. Also, the natural loss of volume in your face can make your nose seem more pronounced. What was a small flaw can become a major source of dissatisfaction. Young or old, you want your nose to flatter your face – after all, it is the center of your face and the hallmark of your profile. When any facial feature is disproportionate, it throws off the natural balance and detracts from your appearance. Your beautiful eyes or vibrant smile can be overshadowed by a crooked or misshapen nose. And yes, it can make you look older. With rhinoplasty, noses can be straightened, made smaller, bumps removed and tips lifted, resulting in a more shapely, youthful and complimentary centerpoint for your face. The most important considerations are: an experienced surgeon, an analysis of your unique nasal structure and function, and a thorough consultation to understand your desired result. My approach is to create facial balance and harmony, resulting in a nose that fits and flatters your face well and never looks surgically altered. If your nose has been bothering you and it’s worsening with age, don’t put...

June 2018 – SMOOTH, BEAUTIFUL SKIN CAN BE YOURS AGAIN.

Q: Dr. Danish – I’m not a jealous person, but I find myself envying other women my age with clear beautiful skin. I’ve ignored those little red spots and spider veins over the years, and it’s all starting to add up. Now in my 40’s, I’m also dealing with hair removal and I’m at my breaking point! How do I get my younger smoother skin back? A : What makes us look older? Often it’s the little imperfections that we leave untreated, until they add up to an older appearance. The spider veins that become a network of marks on your legs… That bothersome hair that you’ve shaved and waxed and plucked but never really addressed… The redness that once was minor but now has become more noticeable than you’d like. All of this can be addressed with new laser technology right in our offices, with comfortable and affordable new treatments. My patients are particularly excited about laser technologies dealing specifically with redness and spider veins, pigmentation and age spots and excess hair anywhere on the body. Our new lasers provide safe and effective treatment, using specific wavelengths to target these issues quickly with little or no downtime. And it’s not just for women anymore! Men are equally concerned about their appearance, and I’ve designed our offices to ensure both men and women feel very comfortable here. Laser hair removal is particularly popular with men, and is a great first step to introduce them to our full range of services. Warmer weather puts your skin on display, and we have excellent new treatments for skin tightening and contouring for...

May 2018 – PUMP IT UP! THREE EASY WAYS TO GET YOUR GLOW BACK

Q: When I look in the mirror, one word comes to mind: Droopy! What can I do? A: Spring is here – but if you can’t shake that pale drawn look of Winter, it’s time for some professional help! Most people see the first signs of facial aging in their early 40’s. It starts with a noticeable loss of volume, a ‘flattening’ in your cheeks and chin. This loss of volume can create a drawn, tired look even when you feel great. This can happen years before your skin loses its elasticity, before you need a facelift or other surgical remedies. But the result is the same: you look older than you feel, and you don’t like it. Here are three effective treatments to consider: 1. Laser Facials regenerate collagen to restore some fullness in your face, and have big benefits for your complexion. We use laser facials to reverse sun damage, reduce pore size, correct redness and pigmentation issues and leave you with a healthy glow. 2. Injectables return youthful volume to your face. We’ll discuss all your options, including Radiesse, Voluma and Sculptra. There is a reason these are so popular today: they work! 3. Lunchtime LiftTM is a surgical approach that provides a natural lift to your cheeks and restores lost volume with no visible scars – all in the time it takes to have lunch! You’ll look rested and...

April 2018 – Spring Break Mini Lift

Q: After this long winter, I look in the mirror and feel like my face is drooping! It’s mainly in my chin area and neck – what can I do, Dr. Danish? A: You’re not imagining it- winter truly does show the effects of gravity! We are less active- more sedentary in the winter months, and it shows on our faces. If you are considering cosmetic procedures, spring is the best time – you’ll be refreshed and ready to jump into the new season! You will notice jowls and loose skin on your neck even in your late 30’s or early 40’s. Addressing it early can actually slow down the aging process, making your face less vulnerable to gravity and helping you maintain a smooth and youthful face well into your 60’s. Let’s talk about the Mini-Lift – a procedure that works well from age 40 to 60 and beyond. It’s actually a mini version of a full facelift and focuses on restoring and tightening the jawline and neck. I do this procedure in just one hour, and the results are immediate and long lasting. There is very minimal recovery time or discomfort, but the results are impressive! Most people feel it erases a decade of aging with a smooth and natural result....
