Injectables for a Spring Facial Refresh

Spring brings with it a desire to refresh and renew. You can experience the vitality of Spring through your own facial rejuvenation with injectables. Here’s a little information about each injectable option we offer at our office:

BOTOX is a well known, FDA approved, safe injection using botulinum toxin type A. It halts muscle movement that is the cause of the wrinkles by blocking nerve signal to the muscles. When the muscles aren’t constricted, the lines are relaxed and the wrinkles are prevented from going deeper. Optimal results are seen within a week or 2, lasting for several months. Some of the most popular cosmetic uses for Botox are for smoothing:

  • horizontal forehead creases
  • vertical lines between the eyebrows (“eleven lines”)
  • crow’s feet around the eyes
  • nose furrows
  • smoker’s lines around the lips

JUVEDERM is a volume restoring injectable filler that smooths out lines and folds using hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring substance that attracts water to the area its injected. It is a highly cross linked smooth gel that is also offered in the Juvederm XC Ultra and XC Ultra Plus formulas, which are the first FDA approved HA fillers for all skin tones and color because of no risk for hyper pigmentation. Juvederm results are instant with long lasting results for 6 months and up. It is perfect for many needs of the mid to lower face:

  • fill lines on the side of your nose (nasolabial folds)
  • rejuvenate creases on the sides of the mouth
  • plump up lips

RADIESSE is a semi permanent filler that creates scaffolding for your own collagen to grow around, naturally rebuilding in a lasting way. This gives immediate and ongoing wrinkle reducing results that remain beyond when Radiesse breaks down and dissolves. It uses calcium based microspheres to rebuild your skin’s foundation with results that last a year or longer for rejuvenated:

  • cheeks
  • nasolabial folds
  • smile lines

SCULPTRA is the longest lasting filler, proven to last up to 2 years or longer. This is nearly twice as long as the majority of hyaluronic fillers. It is composed of PLLA, poly L lactic acid, that stimulates the body’s own collagen renewal for incredible enduring rejuvenation that is natural looking. Sculptra is a great base for a Liquid Facelift that offers lasting volume and skin thickness. It best addresses:

  • aging skin folds
  • indented chin surfaces
  • hollow cheeks
  • sunken eyes

VOLUMA XC is a thicker hyaluronic acid filler that instantly adds volume to the cheek area to fill in lost volume that comes with aging. It is the first FDA approved injectable filler for complete cheek volume restoration. It lifts and sculpts the cheeks for a gentle, subtle Liquid Facelift that lasts up to 2 years. Also, Voluma XC is better suited to fill more difficult folds and wrinkles. The lifting and sculpting benefits rejuvenate:

  • nasolabial folds
  • cheek volume and definition
  • chin shape and smooth lines

As expert injectors, Dr Davison, myself and our PA Nora, are ready to help you rejuvenate and refresh your face for the Spring and beyond. Please visit www.davinciplastic.com to schedule your consultation today.

2019 Trend: The “Tweakment”

This new word “tweakment” is being thrown around in fashion magazines a lot so far this year. With this being one of the biggest 2019 trends, I thought I’d spend a little time on it with you.

So what is a “tweakment?” It’s a play on the words “tweak” and “treatment.” Generally it encompasses a variety of surgical and non surgical procedures that are seemingly small “tweaks” to your appearance. You still look like yourself, but with an ever so subtle enhancement.

Previously, the way most people would communicate to me what features they wanted to accomplish through plastic surgery or non invasive treatments, would be to bring celebrity photos. They’d say “I want her lips” or “I want her nose” or “I want his chin,” etc.

Now, with the smart phone photo editing technology in the palms of our hands, we can enhance the existing features to be more appealing, at least in the cyber sense. We still look like ourselves, but with youthful, symmetric features. Now a days, the way many people are showing me what they want to look like by using these filtered photos of themselves. They want this to not just be a virtual reality on social media, but how they actually look.

This “tweakment” trend is coming from a mindset of people wanting to continue to look like themselves with a little more refinement to their features. Tweakments offer a confidence boost in our appearance, but are minor enough that they aren’t obvious to everyone else. So what are some examples of “tweakments?”

One of the most “up and coming” of the tweakments is the “non surgical nose job.” Rhinoplasty is one of the most requested of plastic surgeries, however, over the last few years more and more people are wanting non surgical alternatives for the more minor tweaks. For these cases, the fillers offer some people with a temporary yet incredibly satisfying change

Another popular “tweakment” that is expected to be the most popular one of 2019 is the Mini Facelift. While everyone wants the results, the recovery for a full Facelift can be daunting for some people. The ones who have exhausted the benefits of the Filler Facelift and aren’t in need of the dramatically rejuvenating results of a full Facelift can turn to the Mini Facelift for help. This less intense surgical option gives the face a refresher that should only require a weekend of recovery.

So have “tweakments” gotten your attention? I’ll cover more about the non surgical nose job and the Mini Facelift in following blogs. If you’re ready to talk about what a “tweakment” can do for you, please visit www.davinciplastic.com to schedule a consultation.

WHAT SHE REALLY WANTS for VALENTINE’S DAY…

Just What She Really Wants for Valentine’s Day …

With Valentine’s Day one week away, gift shopping is in full swing. But if you want to get one of the most desired gifts, you don’t need to brave the malls. Simply come in to DaVinci Plastic Surgery to get a gift certificate for your ‘someone special’ because surveys say that 78% of women would “be impressed” if they received this for a Valentine’s Day gift. And what are they most likely to get? Most certificates are in the price range that is perfect for Botox or dermal fillers.

BOTOX OVER CHOCOLATES AND FLOWERS… There are certain women who’d be offended by the gift, but you can be sure that your lady would love the gift if she is:

  • already a regular consumer of injectables
  • has asked for treatments as gifts for other holidays
  • had one treatment of Botox or filler and expressed happiness with the results
  • ever mentioned that she’s considered getting injectable treatments to address her aging concerns

WHY WOMEN WANT INJECTABLES AS GIFTS… Injectables such as BOTOX, JUVEDERM, VOLUMA, SCULPTRA and RADIESSE can directly affect the confidence and satisfaction one has with their looks. This goes much further than that designer purse or shoes. Every time they look in the mirror they’ll see the rejuvenated face and think of you in appreciation.

WHICH INJECTABLES TO CHOOSE… There is a benefit to giving a gift certificate since that eliminates the guess work as to which treatment to choose. Your Valentine’s sweetheart can select from a variety of the effective, safe treatments to address the area that she wants most. Here are some ideas of what they have to choose from:

  • BOTOX is perfect to smooth out those two vertical lines between the brows, crow’s feet around the eyes, smoker’s lines above the lips, nose furrows and thick lines in the neck. One treatment achieves noticeable improvement immediately (expect a little swelling at injection sites) that increases for optimal results within 7 to 14 days of treatment. AND – these relaxed lines will last for several months.
  • JUVEDERM is a smooth hyaluronic acid filler to instantly smooth out those lines on the side of your nose and mouth.  This is also a popular treatment used to create luscious lips. Juvederm’s natural looking results can last up to a year.
  • VOLUMA XC is the only FDA approved filler to instantly add volume to the cheek area. By replacing lost volume, Voluma XC creates a non surgical mini facelift that can rejuvenate the midface and lessen marionette lines around the mouth. Results can last up to 2 years.
  • SCULPTRA is the only facial injectable with gradual, subtle results that can last 2 years or longer. It adds youthful volume to the face while stimulating collagen renewal.
  • RADIESSE is a semi permanent filler that uses unique, calcium-based microspheres to create scaffolding for your own collagen to grown around.  Long after the Radiesse breaks down, the collagen it encouraged will help keep the face youthful longer.

Take the guesswork out of Valentine’s Day gift giving and get something that your sweetheart would love… a certificate to choose their rejuvenation treatment at DaVinci Plastic Surgery. www.davinciplastic.com

 

See you soon!

Lovely Lips for Valentine’s Day Lovers

Lovely Lips for Lovers on Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is just 2 weeks away and if you’d like to get those luscious lips in time for your hot date, then now is the time to act. Not only will your lips be so kissable, they’ll also help rejuvenate your whole face.

PLUSH POUT CUTS THOSE YEARS OUT… A woman’s full lips are influential in how young other people think she is. Since collagen reduces as we age, lips normally get thinner, so this perception is a reality for most people. But with hyaluronic acid fillers, like Juvederm, you can replenish the fullness of your youthful lips or even add the volume you’ve always wanted but never had.

LADIES LOVE THEIR LIPS… It may be the prevalence of lipstick, lip gloss, lip balm, lip tint and other forms of makeup for the lips, but something about loving their lips makes ladies feel more feminine, sexy and confident. Most women’s desire isn’t for over filled duck lips of years past, but for nicely shaped, soft, naturally gorgeous red lips.  shutterstock_82164610-1

LIFESTYLE CHOICES THAT YOUR LIPS DON’T LIKE… Are you a lip purser? When you’re thinking, sipping coffee or smoking a cigarette, this puckering motion can exacerbate those fine lines around the mouth. Along with loss of collagen and elastin, this repeated action contributes to lip lines. Lip lines not only age the face dramatically, but cause the annoying “lipstick bleed” where lipstick will creep beyond your normal lip lines. Other causes of lip lines, loss of shape and lip color include:

  • Sun damage
  • Poor skin care
  • Dehydration

LIP ENHANCEMENT WITH HA FILLERS… Volume can easily be restored with hyaluronic acid (HA) injectables, e.g. Juvederm. Juvederm naturally creates fuller, plumper lips because hyaluronic acid attracts water to the area. It has a smooth texture, and is FDA approved for safety, so this is a top pick for lip contouring. Although the change isn’t permanent, it is a safe, natural way to create a perfectly plush pout that can rejuvenate the over all appearance of the face.

GETTING THE RIGHT “LOOK” FOR YOUR LIPS… Lips that look “over filled” can be stiff or bumpy and unnatural. Soft, supple, kissable lips should be in harmony with the whole face. Even small amounts of filler enhance the contours of your natural lip shape. Here are some suggested proportions for a nicely contoured lip:

  • slightly fuller center part
  • well curved Cupid’s bow
  • lower lip about twice the size of the upper lip, rather than the same size

LIPS LIKE EXPERT INJECTORS… Achieving luscious, harmonious lips are best accomplished at the hands of an expert injector. I am a board certified physician, specially trained to perform injectable filler treatments. It is crucial to understand the complex facial anatomy, know which product to use, and know how to create ideal results with fillers, such as Juvederm.

Lip enhancements are one of the most popular Valentine’s Day treatments I perform this time of year. This quick, no down time procedure can give you those luscious lips that you and your significant other will love. Visit www.davinciplastic.com to schedule your appointment today.

Brotox (Botox) for Men…Career Booster by looking peppy, alert, energetic!

Not just for women…Men also are getting Botox to regain lost youth. In fact, it’s become a phenomenon, because of the staggering numbers of men who are lining up to get these safe, exacting injections in an all out effort to defy aging.  Thus doctors have renamed it “Brotox.”  shutterstock_88823152-1

Aging Men and Job Hunting Men are finding it absolutely necessary to feel and look their best, and the younger, more alert, more energetic one appears, the better the likelihood of getting that promotion…or that job. In 2010 alone nearly one half million men opted to get Botox thereby making it the leading cosmetic procedure choice among men.

Men are getting Botox to look younger, to keep their face free of emotion or movement, to appear more relaxed and friendly, to ease or erase forehead wrinkles, to get rid of a tired, angry look and for a myriad of other legitimate reasons.

The Stigma is gone and today’s men are taking advantage of the various age defying cosmetic procedures we can offer.

Botox for BrowLifts

It’s the eyebrow that is getting the most attention since men’s emotions become easily etched in their foreheads over time.  Men want to ease the forehead wrinkles that make them look angry.

One 47 year old man recently commented: “It’s become harder to stay fresh in my highly competitive career field and Botox got the job done.!” 

Brotox has exploded as older men turn to cosmetics to compete with the younger generation.  Men have had to become more open to new ideas, but it has caught on and it taking off like wildfire.

But, not just older men...In fact, younger men even in their 30’s are asking for “gifts” from wives and sweethearts for…you guessed it…Brotox.  And these are not the stereotypical guys you would expect to show up in a plastic surgeon’s office…these are guys from all walks of life and career backgrounds.  Recently a chemical worker from Detroit and a guy who restores old cars showed up on offices of colleagues for…Brotox.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons there was a 10 percent increase last year alone in male Botox treatments.

Look and Feel Younger in Days…No Discomfort…No Downtime…Subtle Changes

Botox injections are done in my office, often during a lunch hour.  There is little to no discomfort and no downtime.  Men and women walk in for treatment, walk out after treatment and return to normal activities/routines if they want to.  Results last for months but are not permanent, so if you want changes you can get them next go around.  Botox has been around for decades and used in various life changing treatments around the world.  We have perfected its use for cosmetic uses over the past several years with millions of users globally.  The safety and efficacy are well documented.

See my website for more complete info on Botox: http://www.DAVinciplastic.com.

DON’T BARGAIN with YOUR FACE!  You can open any phone book or read billboard ads offering bargain prices for injectable treatments.  Know this:  low prices have proven to be a “red flag”  that something’s amiss.  Here’s Why:  1) The person advertising may not be trained in the complex facial anatomy. (understanding this is critical to desirable outcomes for facial procedures)  2)  may not even be a doctor!  3) They may pull a “bait and switch” meaning you are not getting the product you asked for.  4)  Low prices often indicate “a diluted formula” with short term results.  PLEASE seek a Board Certified Surgeon who is also well trained and certified as “An Expert Injector.”  Know before  you go!

2014 Trends for Aging Beautifully and Youthfully

shutterstock_16324468BEAUTIFUL, YOUTHFUL AGING in 2014

Welcome to 2014, the age when 50 seems to be the new 30.  No, we can’t stop the aging process but there are a host of things each of us can do to enjoy the journey while turning back the clock and maintaining a “more youthful aging experience.” Each year, Americans spend billions of dollars on preventive health and anti aging beauty treatments.

 TIPS for AGING WELL in 2014

1)   Be practical…acceptance is at the core of aging well.  Authentic, aesthetic beauty embraces realistic goals.  This means at age 50 you can’t and should not try to look 20 again.  Today’s age defying options successfully recapture at least 10 years of youth…then you can always look 10 years younger as you continue to age.

2)   Live in the Moment and remain grateful for each day.

3)   Focus on the person you are, be yourself and be your best every day.

4)   Be Authentic by keeping it real.  Benjamin Franklin said we cannot control what happens to us but we can control how we respond.

5)   Laugh often because it keeps your soul young

6)   Get Creative.  It’s proven that exercising the right brain into the golden/bonus years keeps life fun, fresh and full of excitement.

7)   Enjoy Meditation it relaxes mentally and physically.

8)   Keep Love Alive.  If you’re married act /live as though you’re dating your spouse.  If you’re single go mingle.

9)   Find Your Passion by finding ways to play and laugh daily.

10)                  Be Healthy to ensure natural beauty.

11)                   Build Meaningful Relationships based on honesty, respect, trust, love, common goals, appreciation and togetherness.

12)                  Be Grateful.  My November blogs touched on the many benefits of gratefulness and the health and power it produces in your life.

THE BEAUTY GAP is CLOSING

MEN WANT IN

Just for men salons are popping up across the Nation and globally.  Men want in.  We’ve seen a growing trend for men seeking in and out cosmetic procedures to win their war on aging and keep them competitive in their careers and simply because they want to look good.

ECONOMICS of BEAUTY, ANTI AGING OPTIONS

The up and coming Generation sees anti aging procedures through the same lens as regular healthcare.  So, they include it in their annual budget and regularly seek  the latest, greatest options.  Beauty Options Economics is here to stay.

CULTURAL EMPHASIS ON YOUTH and BEAUTY

The new male has undergone dramatic social changes that demands looking younger, looking good.  The day of “looking rugged” is no longer required but rather looking healthy, more youthful and attractive sends men in quest of cosmetic procedures in increasing numbers each year.  Women still dominate this arena but not for much longer!

GEN X DEMANDS IN and OUT PROCEDURES

Today’s popular no downtime procedures include Botox, Brotox, Filler Facelifts, LipoBody Contouring, Laser Procedures, Skin Tightening, Skin Rejuvenation such as exfoliation by Dermabrasion or Chemical Peels, Injectable Chin Augmentation, Filler Cheek Augmentation, Lip Augmentation to restore gorgeous, sexy lips and many more…. Visit www.davinciplastic.com for compete info on all noninvasive procedures.

ALL for ONE – ONE for ALL PROCEDURES

Cosmetic procedures are no longer just for “celebs” or aging women.  Today Men and Women of all ages, stages and ethnicities are having aesthetic procedures on a regular basis.

THE CLOSING BEAUTY GAP is very evident today as seen by the age ranges (18-85) of both genders and from every cultural background who are seeking youthfulness.  While there will always be fundamental differences between the genders, it is clearly evident the “gap” is rapidly closing when it comes to both genders wanting to look good!  Let’s talk!

I’m here to help you look and feel your absolute best again in 2014.

Best To You and Yours,

Men’s Makeovers and Daddy Do Overs…Are Here to Stay.

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY to all of you Fathers everywhere!  

June 17, 2012 millions of families will celebrate Father’s Day…a day set aside to honor father’s everywhere.  I too am a happy dad and understand what goes into being a parent and a dad.  That said…Enjoy everyday!

Daddy Do Overs make a terrific gift for that terrific guy.  

Career Trends Have Changed…Baby Boomers Opt for Cosmetic Procedures

Trends change and the Baby Boomers have ushered in a new era of positive advancements in all arenas.  Anti Aging Aesthetic surgical and non surgical procedures are now “the norm” among this generation.  With younger executives like Mark Zuckerberg and Larry Page…gray hair is out…health, fitness and looking young is imperative especially in a competitive career field.

Last year (2011) men in the USA alone, had over 800,000 anti aging procedures done to combat flabby/washboard mid sections, to straighten crooked noses they were tired of living with, to reducing flabby breasts leaving a “hot daddy chest.”  And many other age defying options were chosen including:

  • Botox
  • Rhinoplasty (Nose Jobs)
  • Eyelid Lifts/Reduction (Blepharoplasty)
  • Facelifts/Necklifts (remove jowls, restore a chisel chin and tighten the neckline)
  • Liposuction…used on many body areas to remove excess fat and to sculpt that area
  • Fillers….injectables to fill in hollows & make you look 10 years younger instantly
  • Lasers…for a myriad of restorative & rejuvenative treatments…lines, wrinkles, age spots, scars, fat, discoloration and much more.

A YOUTHFUL LOOK BRINGS A SENSE OF INGENUITY, FRESHNESS AND ENERGY … the boardroom experts have made this statement loud & clear.

What Men Want in Treatments:

Men want the treatments listed above but they want them to be the least invasive, easy, simple, using little or no anesthesia and offering quick results.  NO Fuss!

Daddy Do Overs…Executive Makeovers are nearly always combined treatments to give you optimal, little or no downtime, fast results. Men and women today are not being quiet about having aesthetic procedures.

Advanced Methods, Refined Instruments, No Downtime…simple, quick, youthful…

One used to go into seclusion for a month after a facelift, or liposuction or a Rhinoplasty surgery, but today our methods are so advanced  and the instruments so refined, that precision coupled with skill, yields beautiful results that people don’t need to hide until healed.  In fact, many procedures involve “subtle” changes that remove years from the face and body but are so minimally invasive people really don’t notice.  They just think you look more rested or have changed your diet or you are drinking more water and less coffee… or something.

Couples are growing younger together today!  So, if you’ve been thinking about making some changes but don’t want to go it along…bring your wife along!  Let’s do a “Couples Do Over.”

Bottom Line for Men…you have many options to fight the signs of aging…to look as good as you still feel. Come on in and let’s design your own personal treatment plan.  We’ll have you looking great in no time flat.

I keep Men and Women looking, feeling and being healthy and more youthful.

Long Lasting Facial Makeovers Take Years off the Face…by Steven Davison M.D.

AGING, CHIN AUGMENTATIONS & LIP REJUVENATION My last 2 blogs covered Chin Augmentations and creating or restoring beautiful, full lips through Lip Rejuvenation (injectable fillers). If our bodies didn’t age, we would have no need or desire for invasive and non invasive anti aging procedures.   BUT…we all age and we ALL show it.  Along with the other medical tools I can use to help people get and stay well…I also get to enjoy helping them achieve their goals for looking younger again.

New Study Results…Anti Aging IS IN…Years Vanish with Advanced Procedures! Recently published by Modern Medicine…in Cosmetic Surgery Times newsletter, the study was done by the University of Toronto and proved what we already knew!  Researchers looked at patients before and after the following procedures for men and women, and results were as follows:

FACELIFT/Necklift (patients ages in 60’s)… looked at least 7.62 years younger with no other anti aging intervention.

FACELIFT/Necklift/Eyelid Lift… (all aged into 60’s)…looked at least 11.42 years younger.

FACELIFT/Necklift/Eyelid Lift/Forehead Lift… (all aged into 60’s)…looked at least 10+ years younger…with facial balance and symmetry restored.

What This Means to You… Well actually to you and me!  This helps me tremendously when I’m trying to help patients formulate their preoperative expectations.  Bottom line is…this means you can expect to look years younger after surgical procedures….with long lasting results.  In fact, most patients continue looking years younger the rest of their lives with only touch ups and maintenance…following a combination of facial rejuvenation procedures.

DOING THINGS IN COMBO…GETS YOU OPTIMUM …LONG LASTING RESULTS… What Facial Makeovers Today’s Men & Women Typically Choose… When you know it’s time to step up for surgery because the fillers are no longer getting the job done (fillers are temporary) then here’s what men and women today want

  • LIFTED BROWS…place falling brows back to a more youthful position

VECTRA 3 D IMAGING…see now what real results look like!

VECTRA 3D COMPUTER IMAGING

Well, I am proud  to offer the benefits of this revolutionary break through technology.  Since, more and more men and women of all ages and stages in life are coming in for anti aging procedures, it became clear that a more effective way of conveying information…and showing them their likely results… was essential.

The Vectra 3D computer imaging system can determine the correct breast implant size and shape, design the nose of your dreams, or take years off your face…before you’ve even committed to any procedure.  Clearly…these pictures are worth thousands of words.

VECTRA 3 D IMAGING…BRIEF OVERVIEW:

•Vectra 3D computer imaging has increased patient confidence

•You participate in creating your personal treatment plan

•3D Imaging by Vectra establishes a clear treatment plan

•Vectra’s 3D system offers unparalleled accuracy & flexibility

•Dr. Davison is able to convey more information…more clearly

•Allows you to see simulations of actual outcomes

•Vectra 3D demos procedures so you envision your likely results

•AND…here’s what some patients are now saying:

•  Unbelievable!  It was like seeing my new body in a 3D movie.

•  You can make all the changes you want…until you find the look that’s right for you.

•  The Breast simulation showed me how much better I would look with a lift and implants.

•  It’s impressive to realize how close the simulations are to the actual results.

•  It helped me make a crystal clear decision about breast augmentation and the right implants for me… based upon science.

Here’s how it Works:

Vectra’s 3D system employs three dimensional photos of your body.  Once captured and uploaded, you can view the images and procedure simulations on a large screen.  The simulations can be rotated and viewed from many different angles allowing you to actually see the full effect of your procedure.  Breast augmentation is a great example of this process.  The 3D system even selects various breast implant sizes and shapes, simulated over your own anatomy to help you choose the right one. And Rhinoplasty or  “nose job” outcomes are much easier to understand. For example: A nose with a hump, whether wide or crooked, should be viewed from several angles to more accurately see what needs to be done.  The 3D system makes this happen. It has erased frustration and concern for so many patients.

Have you been putting off a procedure due to being fearful about the outcomes?  Come in…let’s talk and then simulate them for you.  You will see it all clearly….and love it.
