Summer is right around the corner, and it’s not hard to understand why many people say this season is their favorite. The warm, sunny weather and longer days make it a perfect time of year to take a vacation, and you’ll undoubtedly get invited to attend backyard cookouts, as well as outdoor concerts and sporting events. You’ll want your skin looking its best all summer long.
Dr. Malena Amato understands that many skin flaws – such as fine lines, wrinkles, a double chin, or sun damage – can make you feel self-conscious about going out in social situations. She provides some of the most advanced treatments for these common, yet undesirable, conditions.
If crow’s feet, forehead furrows, and lines between your brows have begun to make you look older than you truly are, you can be one of the millions of people who have benefited from using neuromodulators to relax existing wrinkles and help prevent new ones from forming. These three similar products, which are all derived from a purified version of botulinum toxin, work by temporarily blocking the nerve signals that cause specific muscles to contract. You can enjoy a smoother brow and eye area for up to three months after getting these injected, so choosing to get them now will have you looking more youthful all summer long.
Have you ever wished you could wave a wand and make the folds and wrinkles around your mouth vanish instantly? While there’s no such thing as a wrinkle-erasing wand, aesthetic medicine has found the next best thing in a small syringe. Injectable dermal fillers have become all the rage because they allow nearly instantaneous improvement of common concerns of aging, including volume loss in the lips and cheeks and the “parentheses lines” that often develop around the mouth.
These fillers work so well because they use hyaluronic acid, a substance your body naturally produces, to attract more moisture to the skin and encourage the production of new collagen, a structural protein that helps serve as the scaffolding of healthy skin. Dr. Amato uses her extensive knowledge of facial anatomy to determine what fillers to inject in the precise places to create natural-looking results.
If you struggle with a genetically inherited double chin, you will be excited to learn about the benefits of Kybella. This injectable product uses a molecule called deoxycholic acid, which plays a role in helping your body break down dietary fats during the digestion process. By placing Kybella in the targeted area beneath your chin, the fat cells will dissolve over time, and your body will excrete them. The results of Kybella are permanent, so after your Kybella treatment sessions, you will enjoy a more defined chin, jawline, and upper neck as long as you commit to maintaining a healthy body weight.
Are you looking for a way to remove sun damage, uneven skin tone, fine lines, scarring, and other visible imperfections and signs of aging? Minimally invasive laser facial resurfacing could be the perfect solution for you. Dr. Amato uses a fractional laser to treat skin in small sections, without harming the remaining areas.
This laser stimulates collagen production to lead to the formation of smoother and more youthful skin over the long term, without the stitches, scars, or lengthy recovery time associated with surgical skin procedures. While laser skin treatment has quickly noticeable results, you’ll also see ongoing improvements as your skin continues to produce new collagen over the months following your laser procedure.
