LATISSE® solution is a growth treatment for lashes. In fact, it’s the only FDA-approved treatment clinically proven to grow lashes. And it’s the only lash growth product of its kind available by prescription LATISSE® grows lashes longer, fuller and darker. LATISSE® solution is a once-a-day treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes, as instructed by your doctor. Then, gradually, the results come in.
How LATISSE® works.
LATISSE® makes lash growth possible because of its active ingredient: bimatoprost. Although the precise mechanism of action is unknown, LATISSE® is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, it increases the length of this phase, and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase.
With the Cutera™ laser, Dr. Shah can soften and minimize scars that may serve as physical reminders of stressful or even traumatic times. The laser can also help to do away with newly-formed stretch marks and acne scars. For teens and adults alike in acne remains one of the most frustrating, embarrassing of all skin problems. It doesn’t help to know it’s one of the most common skin conditions in the United States, afflicting many millions of people. We can help eliminate or minimize those embarrassing scars.
The Cutera™ laser delivers a pulse of light onto the treatment area; most patients describe the sensation as no more than a quick sting or snap. The device also directs a cooling substance during treatment to help minimize discomfort. The treatment works by reaching deep into the underlying layers of your skin and stimulating collagen production.
The evolving science of non-surgical skin tightening is the Holy Grail of plastic surgery and dermatology – literally being able to avoid surgery by using a laser or similar device to tighten skin. The inherent problem is that we lose collagen elasticity as we age and it’s only through the restoration of collagen elasticity that our skin appears healthier and tighter. There is no downtime and treatment is not painful for the newest systems. There is an immediate tightening noted and also a delayed tightening that occurs over a few months. Results are noted after 1 procedure but better results are seen by having 2 to 3 treatments spaced 3 to 4 weeks apart.
This highly effective, in-office procedure is designed to significantly improve the appearance and health of your skin. An application of TCA (trichloracetic acid) is used to exfoliate the dead and damaged surface layers of skin, allowing new and healthy skin cells to surface. This improves the appearance of fine lines and uneven skin tone.
Sclerotherapy treatment has been used safely and successfully to treat varicose and spider veins since the 1930s and has evolved to a well-tolerated, advanced technique. A solution is injected into each vein using a fine needle causing the vein to dissolve. This procedure is virtually pain free using our “ouch less” technique. Generally, several treatments are required.
Never shave, pluck or wax those unwanted hairs again. This method of permanent hair reduction is performed using a state-of-the-art laser. Lasers treat targeted areas using high intensity, concentrated light energy that cross the skin’s barrier and are absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. After a series of treatments, this energy then destroys the hair and disables the follicle, leaving any area free of unwanted hair.
As you age, essential substances that form the natural support layers in the skin break down resulting in wrinkle formation. Sun exposure and poor nutritional habits can also contribute to these losses. Injectable fillers like Restylane, Cosmoderm and Cosmoplast have been designed for instant wrinkle correction. Common treatment areas include: laugh lines, frown lines and “smoker’s lines.” These fillers can also be used to create fullness in thin lips.
BOTOX® Treatment is a safe, quick and non-surgical procedure. It is used to correct deeper grooves and wrinkles caused by years of repetitive facial expressions. It works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected region, relaxing the muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. Immediately after a treatment, normal activities can be resumed.
