We would like to share some exciting news! We are hosting an open house and a chemical peel event next month! It will be held on Monday, August 18, 2014 from 3-7pm right in the foyer of our office. Our Licensed Aestheticians will be present to discuss products and cosmetic treatments offered in our office. We decided to title the event "Glow and Go" because we are offering a free chemical peel to the first 24 patients who register to attend. This peel is specifically designed to illuminize your skin and give it a glow! There is a registration fee of $100 to reserve your spot. However, your registration fee can be used to purchase products.

There will be live demonstrations of Botox and cosmetic fillers such as Juvederm. Our Physician Assistants, Susan and Emily, will be available to discuss these procedures and they may be able to perform a treatment for you that evening as well. There will be refreshments available and a basket to raffle off too! Call our office to reserve your spot. Space and time is limited to take advantage of these and other opportunities only offered that evening!

Did you read The Buffalo News this weekend? There was an article in the Refresh section of the newspaper on Saturday, April 19th, 2014, under Health titled Preserve youthful skin without surgery. The article outlines ways that you can preserve beautiful healthy skin without having any type of surgical procedure. Dr. Kenneth Arndt, a clinical professor of dermatology affiliated with Harvard Medical school, was interviewed.

Interestingly, the first step discussed to youthful skin is wearing sunscreen and using sun protective measures to slow the pace of sun damage. That's something that we always recommend in our office. No matter what you plan to do to improve the appearance of your skin, you should always protect it against further damage. Otherwise, your investment will be for naught.

The most sought after non-surgical treatments that Dr. Arndt discussed are neuromodulators, such as Botox, and dermal fillers, such as Juvederm. Both treatments are minimally invasive and have minimal recovery time. Remember, neuromodulators help to relax fine lines and wrinkles while dermal fillers are injections that help to plump up or soften lines and wrinkles. Both treatments are often done together for maximum results.

Another option for youthful skin without surgery is skin rejuvenation with laser treatments. There are different types of minimally invasive laser treatments available to help treat such problems as brown spots on the skin or uneven skin tone. Some of these lasers include fractional lasers or pulsed light therapy. These lasers also have minimal recovery time and again, are not invasive.

There are other options to obtain and maintain youthful skin without surgery that are also less costly. These treatments include microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Microdermabrasion uses tiny exfoliating crystals to slough off the top layer of skin and reveal fresh glowing skin. Chemical peels use specific chemicals such as glycolic acid to strip away the outer layer of skin an remove damaged skin. These treatment options are relatively inexpensive and are great non-surgical procedures to rejuvanate the skin.

You should always make sure that the person providing treatments for you is a well trained and licensed professional. Dr. Accetta, Susan Peterson, PA and myself are well trained in many non-surgical cosmetic procedures.Our licensed aesthetician, Heidi, would be happy to do a complimentary consultation about skin rejuvenation products and procedures. We provide many of the treatments as discussed in this article from The Buffalo News. If you are interested in obtaining youthful skin without having any type of surgical procedure, we would be happy to discuss any of these treatment options with you right here in our office.
