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...

February 2017

Ask Dr. Danish “We have some big events coming up, and we’d both like a little ‘refresher’ to get rid of the winter blahs. Are there some quick and easy treatments we both can do that have good results without any ‘down time’?” Answer: Valentines Day is approaching, and love is in the air! There is a growing trend for couples to have cosmetic procedures done together. I find working with couples can bring you closer together, as you share your expectations and help each other choose the right direction to take. Of course, men and women show the signs of aging differently, and we’ve all heard men referred to as ‘distinguished’ while women are just called ‘older’! Despite the difference in societal expectations, both men and women can benefit equally from cosmetic procedures. Women are more aware of sun protection and skin care, so often men need to catch up to their wives in that area. We address sun spots and discoloration, and select products for daily cleansing and moisturizing. Men often need more assistance in the eye area and brows, from simple botox treatments to eye lifts and brow lifts for more complete results. Both men and women experience a loss in facial volume and skin elasticity with age. These can be addressed with injectable fi llers, cheek or chin implants, or mini-lifts to create a more youthful appearance. When couples share the experience together, it’s amazing how supportive and excited they are for each other! It can restore some of the zest in your relationship, creating a new bond from the shared experience. You can be...

What makes us look older?

What makes us look older?

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 office, 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 office 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 both body and face. Call us today and you’ll enjoy this season with the confidence that comes from looking and feeling your...

Grow Young Together

Q: Dr. Danish, my husband and I were wondering, do men benefit as much as women from cosmetic procedures? If we want to come in together, can you work with us as a couple? A: Valentines Day is approaching, and love is in the air! There is a growing trend for couples to have cosmetic procedures done together. I find working with couples can bring you closer together, as you share your expectations and help each other choose the right direction to take.

Tis’ the Season to be Beautiful

Tis’ the Season to be Beautiful

Q: Eventually I may be ready for surgery – but until then, how do I fix the way my face is aging? I look years older than I feel and I’m just not happy about it. What can I do, Dr. Danish? A: Aging takes a toll in several ways: pore size, loss of fullness in your face, fine lines and discoloration. Today, we are able to reduce or even eliminate many of these signs of aging with a series of comfortable office visits using the Cutera Laser. More pronounced signs of aging, like spider veins, broken capillaries and age spots, can be also be remedied with these new laser therapies in the comfort of our office. One often neglected issue with aging is unwanted hair. Using the Lumenis Duet Laser, we can achieve permanent hair removal with great results. For appearance and for convenience, this is a very easy problem to treat for both men and women. If you have never had a laser treatment, you’ll be amazed how quick and comfortable it is! The result is a more youthful and healthy looking...
