September 2017 – Be Fabulous at Every Age

September 2017 – Be Fabulous at Every 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...
August 2017 – A Sizzling Summer Starts with Hot Lips!

August 2017 – A Sizzling Summer Starts with Hot Lips!

Q: Dr. Danish, how can I bring back the full lips I had in my younger years? They seem to get thinner and straighter every year. A: At any age, full lips create a soft and appealing appearance. Thinner lips, though, can make us look older and less vibrant than we feel. Whether smiling or in repose, our lips tell our age as much as any other feature. As we age, our lips lose volume. This creates a more drawn appearance, and more pronounced lines on the lips and around the mouth. Over the years, we’ve all seen those few famous actresses with overdone lips – and this has discouraged many women (and men) from addressing this important facial feature. Natural full lips are completely possible with the techniques available today. In office, non-surgical solutions can replace lost volume. The skill and experience of the doctor is essential to achieve the natural look and feel appropriate to your own unique facial structure. These treatments can last a year or longer, and my patients are very enthusiastic about the results. A more permanent solution is lip implants. Today’s implants are extremely soft and pliable, and look great with no visible signs that you’ve had anything...

Question: 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? Answer: 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...

Ask Dr. Danish Even with plenty of sleep, I still look tired – my eyes never look really awake anymore. I’m just 40, but my eyes make me look much older. Is this common, and what can I do about it? Answer: For both men and women, the first visible signs of aging can appear in the eye area. Beginning in your 30’s, you may notice droopy hooded upper lids and wrinkled skin on the lower lids. This instantly communicates a lack of vitality and adds years to even the youngest faces. You might also notice the eyebrows sinking a bit, giving you an angry or serious expression. Together, these two areas can create an older and tired look well beyond your actual years. Fortunately there are effective solutions that are so natural, nobody will ever guess you’ve had anything done. In the right hands, you will simply look refreshed, rested and naturally younger than your friends or colleagues! For the lids, the best solution is called Blepharoplasty – surgery to tighten the upper and / or lower eyelids. It has little discomfort or ‘down time’, and the incisions heal so well that no one will guess your secret! Most people say it takes more than a decade off their appearance, restoring the clear bright eyes they had in their youth. For the brows, we often have good results with Botox, which can slightly lift the brow and remove that furrowed look. It has the added benefit of smoothing lines in the forehead. For brows that have sagged below the bony rim of your eye area, we perform endoscopic...

Ask Dr. Danish “I’ve tried twenty different ‘solutions’ for hair removal. It’s not that my hair is so bad, it’s that the treatments either don’t work, are too expensive, or are just too uncomfortable. Is there a real solution for unwanted hair? Answer: Over the years, we’ve all seen results promised but not delivered when it comes to hair removal. If the treatment was effective, it had the downside of pain, cost, time or serious irritation to your skin. If it was quick, easy and affordable, it didn’t produce good results. UNTIL NOW. I’m so excited to introduce you to LightSheer Duet. My colleagues around the country agree that we finally have an effective permanent solution with excellent results and a pleasant experience for our patients. This technology was designed solely for hair removal, using pulses of energy to damage the hair follicle without any impact on the surrounding skin. It’s cool and comfortable, so we’re now able to treat large areas like the back and legs more quickly than ever before. For sensitive skin and delicate areas like the bikini area or underarms, the results are fast and effective without the irritation other treatments often produced. Unwanted hair is not just a cosmetic issue – it can be uncomfortable, and often can impact your self confidence. I’ve met with men and women who didn’t feel sexy anymore, who dreaded spring and summer, and worse – who had damaged their skin with harsh treatments that did more harm than good. Say goodbye to unwanted hair forever – and to ineffective treatments. Come in today, and say hello to silky...

Question: “I admit it- I look in the mirror and pull up my face to see how much better I’d look with a facelift. I’m beginning to think it’s time – but when is the right time? Is it better to do it early?” Answer: The big news is this: we’ve taken the fear out of the facelift! Gone are the days of the pulled, unnatural looking facelift. Today, in the right hands, you’ll look soft and natural, with a smooth and youthful appearance. No one should ever look at you and detect that you’ve had a facelift – only that you look fabulous! A facelift addresses the neck, jawline and mid face, bringing back the defi nition that years have taken away. The mini-lift corrects the early signs of aging, but is less effective for more advanced aging of the neck and jowls. During your consultation, we’ll discuss the benefi ts of both procedures. You’ll want to consider the immediate results, and also the benefi ts over the long term; the work you do today will impact how you age over the next decade. Here is my advice about the right time for a procedure: when something about your appearance catches your attention repeatedly, that’s the signal to take steps to change it. There are benefi ts to taking action early – faster healing and better muscle tone aid in the recovery time. You should never wait one minute longer than you want to, or act one minute earlier than you are...
