May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month
 
Dr. Mash and the American Academy of Dermatology's 2017 SPOT Skin Cancer™ campaign - "Check Your Partner. Check Yourself"  - are encouraging women to check both their partners and themselves for  signs of skin cancer. When detected early, skin cancer - including melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer -  is highly treatable. 

Research has shown that women are nine times more likely than men to notice melanoma on others, which means women could help save their partners' lives by helping them spot skin cancer. This is especially important for men over 50 as they have an increased risk of developing melanoma compared to the general population.

  • On average, 1 person dies from melanoma every hour. 
  • 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. 
  • Research shows women are 9 times more likely than men to notice melanoma on others.
  • Nearly 9,500 Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer each day.
  • The five-year survival rate for melanoma when detected and treated in its early stages is 98% 
Please call now to check yourself and your loved ones. Your screening only takes a few minutes and may mean saving a life!

Restylane Defyne and Refyne

Galderma, a global leader focused on medical solutions in skin health, announced FDA approval of two new products for the treatment of nasolabial folds or "laugh lines," in patients over the age of 21. Restylane Refyne was approved for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds and Restylane Defyne for the treatment of moderate to severe, deep facial wrinkles and folds.These scientifically-advanced gels are manufactured with XpresHAn Technology (pronounced ex-ˈspre-shən), creating gels that offer a range of flexibility and support for varied patient needs. Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne have been shown to maintain effectiveness for the treatment of laugh lines for up to 12 months.

Defyne and Refyne provide a 'flexible' and smooth facial rejuvenation. 

There are so many options now available to patients wanting to achieve a natural appearance with their fillers.  Schedule a complimentary consultation to see if these new products are for you.
Vollure XC is Finally Here!


Allergan, the pharmaceutical company that owns JuvĂ©derm, just announced its newest hyaluronic acid dermal filler,  Juvederm Vollure XC, which has been approved for the correction of "moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds," according to a statement made by the company. What's more is that this filler, made for those over 21, is said to last as long as 18 months - a full year longer than most injectables on the market.

Juvederm Vollure XC uses special technology, known as Vycross - which is also used in Juvederm Voluma XC and Juvederm Volbella XC - to hold the hyaluronic acid together into a cohesive gel, which keeps it intact after it's injected into the skin. That means that the mixture of high and low hyaluronic acid in the Vycross technology creates a more connected gel, which can be molded, effectively lifting sunken skin sitting above it. There is also less swelling! 

Bottom line: The Juvederm Vollure XC filler, which has been approved in Europe since 2013 (under the name Juvederm Volift), is a ground-breaker in the world of injectables.

We are launching this product this week and are among the first East Coast dermatologists to offer it to our patients.

What Will Your Mom REALLY Want For Mother's Day? 

You know what most mom's tell their sons and daughters they want for Mother's Day? 

"Nothing."  

So, most of us are faced with the question, "What might she REALLY want."

Let us help!

Show moms how much you appreciate them with a little pick me up


Everyone (including mommy) needs a little lift now and then. Here are a few "lifting" ideas for mom!

  • Ultherapy is a powerful non-surgical procedure and the only non-invasive procedure that is FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. Now also FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the chest, Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest!  (go to our website and see what you could look like with Ultherapy by using our VISUALIZER.)
    MAY OFFER: $500 off for 2 or more areas plus get 20 units of Xeomin free
  • Earlobe rejuvenation is a simple procedure that can be done in-office and requires virtually no downtime. It is common for people who wear earrings to snag them on something and cause a small rip in the earlobe, or over time through the force of heavy jewelry, to end up with sagging earlobes. Earlobe repair can quickly and simply fix minor damage, and return a natural appearance to the earlobe to frame the face beautifully. 
  •  
  • VelaShape is a non-invasive laser procedure that uses Radio frequency and Infrared Light Energy to shrink fat cells and tighten the skin. It is the only FDA cleared device that effectively and safely contours, shapes and slims the body by reducing cellulite and firming problem areas within 4 treatments. Whereas UltraShape is the first and only FDA cleared, non-invasive body shaping device that uses pulsed, focused ultrasound to mechanically (non-thermally) and selectively destroy fat cells at a designated focal point in the subcutaneous fat tissue without harming the skin, blood vessels, nerves or connective tissue, demonstrating measurable results in as little as 2 weeks. This unique technology answers the growing patient demand for a non-invasive body shaping solution that offers no downtime and without the complications associated with surgery. May offer: buy 3 UltraShapes and get 3 VelaShapes FREE.
  • PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a natural product created from your own body. A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. PRP stimulates your own collagen to grow for total facial rejuvenation rather than individual wrinkle improvement. PRP is used for volumizing faces that are beginning to look drawn, to plump out cheek indentations, soften under eye hollows , improve the skin tone, tightness, and texture, and fill in areas where hyaluronic acid fillers cannot reach or are not safe to use. PRP is also used for Hair Restoration (suitable for both men and women). It is a state of the art, non surgical, totally natural, alternative medical procedure used for the treatment of hair loss or hair thinning.
 
  • Microdermabrasion  is a procedure that exfoliates and removes the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells. Patients with fine lines, uneven pigmentation or clogged pores may benefit most from a series of microdermabrasion treatments. It is an excellent procedure to help maximize the benefit of a regular topical regimen, keep skin feeling smooth, help pigment look more even and speed clearance of whiteheads. (After a free consultation, we will advise if a medical facial or chemical peel would be more appropriate.)
    May offer: Six treatments for $600.
