Acne scar treatments
Sep 26, 2017
Good afternoon, thank you for your question. There are a variety of treatments available now, and one that I've had great success with for acne scars is Infini (high intensity focused radiofrequency microneedling). It's performed in a series of treatment sessions but the recovery/social downtime is significantly shorter, risks are lower, etc. If smaller areas still need further improvement after the Infini treatment series is...
Tattoo removal questions: how many laser treatments do you guys think would remove this? (
The good news!
Sep 14, 2017
Good morning, thank you for your question. I'll start by saying that it's difficult to know exactly how many sessions are going to be needed to remove your one can tell you for certain, it's just the nature of the treatment. So, if you decide to remove it, you should go into the process with the understanding that you'll just have to wait & see.
There are several factors that impact how quickly the tattoo will...
Is E prime: the Evlastin procedure the same as Profound?
Aug 16, 2017
Good morning, thanks for the question. As it relates to the treatment itself, ePrime/evolastín/Profound are one in the same. Although I can't speak on behalf of the developer, my assumption is that the name changes are simply a marketing or re-branding strategy. Cosmetic device developers, much like car manufacturers, will frequently release new versions of existing products as time goes by. We often see changes in body styles, new ...
Is it possible to have a lip enhancement filler and 'tear trough' under eye fillers in one
Aug 14, 2017
It's absolutely possible to have both in one day. Fillers in both of these areas can create a dramatic change and tear troughs especially are considered an advanced just make sure you find a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon who has experience with dermal fillers and other injectable treatments.
I hope this helps!

Should I still get V-Beam even though my marks don't blanch out with pressure?
Jul 31, 2017
Good morning, thank you for the question. I know it seems very simple to pick out a treatment based upon the vast amount of information available on the internet. However, it's truly in your best interest to make an appointment with a physician who has laser experience. Let he/she make recommendations for you & your unique skin.
Key pieces of information are easily confused which could lead you to unnecessary or...

Mohs Pros...and Cons
Jul 26, 2017
Good morning, thanks for your question.
I'm in complete agreement with Dr. Ratz & Dr. Bader, you should absolutely have the surgery. I often hear things like: "If BCCs grow slowly - is it really worth the trouble of having surgery?" and "I am/am not worried about how good it will look", etc. While these are valid points to consider, I try to encourage my patients to look at the other side of that coin. For starters, Mohs...

Too early for Profound?
Jul 11, 2017
Hi noleeta. No, age doesn't have any bearing on whether or not you can have Profound treatment. It's more about the current state of your skin and what you would like to improve, as well as other factors.
Actually, the patients who are just beginning to notice signs of skin aging are sometimes the ones that do the best in terms of results, especially with non-invasive treatments like Profound. Someone who has more advanced skin aging would get improvement...
How can I treat my severe acne scars?
Best Options
Jul 10, 2017
As mentioned by Dr. Maini, acne scars are difficult to treat and can be very frustrating for both physicians & patients alike. Acne scars - like other types of wound scars are unlikely to ever be 100% erased from your skin...unfortunately, that's just the nature of scarring. However, there ARE several things that can be done to help improve the appearance of acne scars.
Below is a list of treatments I like to use:

Is Profound safe for thin faces?
Profound for thin faces
Jun 5, 2017
Good afternoon, thank you for your question! In my opinion, Profound is an excellent treatment option for someone who is bothered by lower face laxity & volume loss. I'm especially impressed with how it remodels skin elasticity & boosts volume in the lower mid-cheek. Wrinkles in this area are notoriously difficult to improve with fillers without looking like you've obviously "had something done". Bear in mind that Profound is a bit more aggressive...

More Time
May 16, 2017
I know that Mohs Surgery can be overwhelming, especially with your surgery & scar being on the face - but it has only been 4 days and the full healing process has only just begun. The reason for the length of the wound was to make it possible to close it so that the end result would be a scar that is flat & linear (falling along the natural contour of your nasolabial fold). When you go in to have the stitches taken out, ask your doctor what more he/she...
IPL vs TCA peel for pinpoint treatment of individual freckles and moles?
Your best options
May 10, 2017
Thank you for your question! If I understand, your ultimate goal is to remove individual dark spots on your face while avoiding post-treatment color/texture variations.
I would preface my recommendations by saying that it would be helpful to know your skin type & whether or not you have a history of hyperpigmentation. Also bear in mind that anything you do to treat individual spots is going to leave you, at least initially, with uneven...
Does Vobella for the vertical lines above the lips take a few days for the full effect?
Apr 28, 2017
You should have results immediately...unlike Botox, with fillers like Volbella, there isn't any waiting for it "kick in" so to speak. If anything (and depending on the patient), I would expect maybe some minor swelling or bruising that could obscure how it looks initially.
I usually tell my patients to at least give it a week post-treatment to see how everything looks. If they're still not 100% satisfied after that week, I have them come in to...
CoolSculpting. When we gain weight, does our body redirect where the growth goes?
Post-CoolSculpting® Weight Gain
Apr 11, 2017
Hi danamtaylor22, thanks for the excellent question. When we lose weight we don't actually LOSE our existing fat cells- instead, they just shrink. When we gain weight, they don't multiply- instead, they just expand.
With CoolSculpting® the treated fat cells are destroyed and we DO lose them. However, as you know, its only about a 20-30% reduction so you aren't destroying ALL of the fat cells in the treated area. So, if you were to gain ...
Do age spots usually get worse with each subsequent IPL treatment in the long run?
Apr 11, 2017
Thanks for your question, eps207. You should not be getting MORE hyperpigmentation from IPL treatments, it should be the opposite. IPL is not a permanent solution because you will continue to go about your daily life after treatment and with that, your skin will continue to age. However, if you are diligent about wearing broad-spectrum sunscreen everyday, reapplying every 2 hours when out in the sun & taking steps to protect your face from direct...

Face shape/fillers
Apr 10, 2017
I would agree that Voluma is a great choice for increasing volume in the mid-face. You said you had Juvéderm in your cheek area to get rid of marionette lines...just to clarify, marionette lines are the lines the run from the corner of the mouth down to the chin. I see virtually nothing there in your photos, so I'm guessing maybe you meant to say nasolabial folds? These are the lines that run from the nostril down to the corner of the mouth. Nasolabial folds will improve very ...
