Popular Treatments for Spider Veins

spider vein treatments in NYCWe came across a recent article in the New Beauty Mag blog about spider vein treatments, and since our very own plastic surgeon, Dr. Nicholas Vendemia, does quite a few sclerotherapy injections for spider veins on a weekly basis, we wanted to get his feedback.

We’ve included the full text of the original article so that nothing can be taken out of context, and so that you can get the full opinions of not one, but two experts on this subject… Dr. Downie (the original doc interviewed by New Beauty), and New York Plastic Surgeon Dr. Nicholas Vendemia. After all, two heads are usually better than one.

Kim Kardashian looked great at her Vegas Birthday Bash

Kim Kardashian birthday pics las vegasIf you ask me, I would say that Kim Kardashian’s 34th birthday bash in Las Vegas this past weekend was a big success…

… not because of her gorgeous white dress… and not because of the huge amount of press the event brought in. It was a success because Kim looked better than she’s looked in several years. It’s no secret that Kim is a fan of plastic surgery, and until now she’s been looking a little over the top, particularly with her Botox, cheeks, and lips. All of those seem to have been brought back under control without taking away from her usual ultra-voluptuous Hollywood look.

Keep reading for a breakdown of which plastic surgery procedures are working for her right now, and what she might be able to do better in the future to keep this look going through the rest of her 30’s and 40’s.

Lip Enhancement for smoother lips with less wrinkles

This is a 33 year old woman who wanted smoother lips with less wrinkles, and a slightly enhanced version of her own natural shape. As you can see, she already had full lips with good proportion and symmetry, so the technique used here was a special one designed to smooth as many of the wrinkles as possible without adding a look of volume or additional fullness. This is the result immediately after very precise injection of 1.5 syringes of Juvederm. The wrinkles are nearly gone so her lipstick will go on smoother and last longer, the naturally full shape of her bottom lip looks even better without being overdone, and the cupid’s bow of her top lip is also more prominent and prettier. The very slight asymmetry of her bottom lip has also been corrected for a more even appearance.

My Botox only lasts a few months. Is this normal?

botox_cosmeticThe short answer to this question is yes, it is normal, but only for a small percentage of people.

The vast majority of Botox patients report that their results last about 4 months. A small percentage say that their results last longer than 4 months, some up to 8 or 9 months, while another even smaller percentage say that it only lasts 2 months.

If you happen to fall in the 2-month crowd, keep reading to learn more about this uncommon phenomenon and what you might be able to do to get more time out of each treatment…

What is Laser Liquid Facelift?

Laser liquid facelift is a highly innovative, non-surgical solution designed to produce similar results as a facelift surgery. Many people are bothered by the signs of aging on their face, but may not be comfortable with the idea of an invasive facelift procedure. Some may choose non-surgical alternatives such as injectable facial fillers, while some others may go for advanced laser skin tightening solutions to make the facial skin appear tighter, firmer, and more youthful.

Laser liquid facelift is a path-breaking technique that combines the benefits of both dermal fillers as well as laser skin tightening. As a hybrid procedure, it can produce more effective and comprehensive results for a patient. The dermal fillers can work to plump the skin and add volume to depleted areas of the face, while the laser treatment can rejuvenate the skin and reduce the appearance of skin blemishes, scars, wrinkles, and lines. In some cases, the cosmetic surgeon may also decide to add Botox treatment in a selective manner along with the fillers and laser procedure.

Benefits

The key advantage with a laser liquid facelift is that the procedure can be customized substantially according to the specific aesthetic goals and the unique facial anatomy of a patient. The procedure serves as an effective substitute for patients who are averse to the idea of plastic surgery. Dr. Vendemia in Manhattan, NYC will carefully evaluate a patient’s aesthetic concerns and choices before recommending a liquid laser facelift treatment.

The procedure avoids all the risks and limitations that are typically associated with a surgical facelift. The patient does not have to undergo general anesthesia and post-operative pain and discomfort is also negligible. Unlike a typical procedure performed by a plastic surgeon, liquid laser facelift does not involve any significant downtime. This makes it an ideal procedure for working or busy individuals who are unable to spare several days or weeks for an aesthetic surgery.

Dr. Vendemia in New York City has introduced innovations to a typical laser liquid facelift to make it more effective as well as more comfortable for his patients. The procedure can achieve the following aesthetic facial enhancements:

  • Drooping eyebrows, jaw and cheeks can be lifted to provide a younger looking facial appearance.
  • Wrinkles and lines from the face can be reduced, and volume can be added to the depleted areas of the face.
  • Lips can appear fuller and shaplier.
  • Frown lines on the forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes can fade away.
