How does ThermiVa work?

Women experience many changes to their bodies over the years due to the natural process of aging. But certain life experiences, such as pregnancy and childbirth, can cause more noticeable changes in specific areas such as the vagina. It is common with time to experience discomfort and loosening in the vaginal area, and while it often goes untreated for many women, there is a solution available today to help in tightening and toning the vaginal area called ThermiVa. ThermiVa is readily available to patients in and around the Williamsville, NY area at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics with Dr. Jack Bertolino. 

Why might I consider ThermiVa? 

Treatments such as ThermiVa can benefit a variety of women. This treatment addresses the stretching of the vaginal skin and muscles that can contribute to changes in the vaginal area—and the way women feel about themselves. ThermiVa is used to address problems such as: 

  •         Vaginal dryness
  •         Discomfort in the vagina during sexual activities
  •         Decreased sensation during intimacy
  •         Loss of self-confidence in the bedroom
  •         Bladder/urinary incontinence
  •         Decreased libido and sexual desire
  •         Stretched or loss vaginal skin (labial skin)

How does ThermiVa work? 

Women are excited to find out that ThermiVa provides a nonsurgical, noninvasive approach to tightening and toning the vaginal area. With ThermiVa, a specialized device is used to administer radiofrequency energy. This energy emitted into the vulvar tissues and vaginal wall can stimulate the production of collagen in the tissues of both the internal and external vaginal areas. By tightening and strengthening these areas, women will experience improvement that helps them feel more confident with their bodies!

Using microdermabrasion to clear your skin and improve overall appearance

At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics of Williamsville, NY, new and established patients will find that a wide range of services are available for patients to consider for improving the health and appearance of their skin. Our facial skin is exposed to the elements every day and, with the natural process of aging, can develop fine lines and wrinkles that make patients look older than they really are. Imperfections on the skin can also have an effect on the appearance. With certain treatment options available with Dr. Jack Bertolino, patients in the community can enhance their skin with affordable procedures including microdermabrasion. 

Understanding how microdermabrasion works 

Microdermabrasion is a specialized technique that is used to improve the skin through exfoliation. Using a device that emits crystals, serums, and a vacuuming device, dead skin cells are removed, along with debris that clog the pores. This device has been used for years in improving the skin in conjunction with a proper home skincare routine. 

Why choose microdermabrasion? 

Microdermabrasion can have a significant impact on the health and look of the skin as it exfoliates away dead skin cells and pore-clogging debris. It can also be used to administer serums into the skin to treat problems such as acne. With the help of Dr. Jack Bertolino, Williamsville, NY area patients will find that routine microdermabrasion treatments will help clear skin and boost self-confidence. 

Who is a candidate for microdermabrasion? 

Dr. Jack Bertolino recommends microdermabrasion treatments for patients of all genders, ethnicities, and skin types. The treatment is noninvasive and can clear skin while improving clogged pores, dull skin tone, sun damage, and fine lines and wrinkles. Patients who have active infections, such as acne, may need to clear their skin before becoming a candidate for microdermabrasion, and patients with rosacea or open wounds will want to avoid treatment until the inflamed skin and wounds have healed.

Latisse allows patients to thicken and lengthen their eyelashes

While the eyes are the windows to the soul, not everyone has the best window frames! Eyelashes that are sparse, thin, or short can make patients feel self-conscious about how they look. Oftentimes, mascara and eyeliner can’t correct this concern. In situations like this, our team at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics may recommend the use of a product called Latisse. 

What is Latisse? 

Many women who want fuller, thicker, longer eyelashes are satisfied with the results they achieve with cosmetics. However, others want a more natural look even when they’re not wearing makeup. In these situations, patients may be advised to consider the benefits of solutions such as Latisse. 

Dr. Jack Bertolino describes Latisse as a treatment that enhances the eyelashes. It is a medication formulated with an active ingredient known as bimatoprost. When it was first developed years ago for the treatment of ocular hypertension, it was found to have a pleasing side effect: the improved thickness and length of the eyelashes. In 2008, the FDA approved Latisse for lash growth. This prescription has been used by millions of women seeking these aesthetic enhancements. 

How do I use Latisse? 

The Latisse prescription comes with one month’s supply of medication, along with disposable wands that are used once and disposed of. Patients will apply the medication onto the upper lashes before bed. When sleeping, the medication will also apply to the lower lashes to provide improvements in both. Over the course of time, patients will see a transformation, fully complete within 16 weeks of daily use. If patients choose to stop using Latisse, their eyelashes will return to their original length and thickness with time. Continued use ensures maintained lash quality. 

Call today to learn more about Latisse 

If you are ready for thicker, fuller lashes, it might be time to talk to Dr. Jack Bertolino of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics about this amazing medical product! Call the office at (716) 633-6100 to request a consultation visit with our team, and get started improving your appearance.

Cellulite removal with VASERsmooth

Cellulite is a common condition that can occur in patients of any age or gender, though it is typically seen more prominently in women. Dr. Jack Bertolino of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics sees patients regularly who are complaining of the increase in cellulite on the buttocks, hips, and upper thighs. Understanding what cellulite is and how it can be treated can be a great way to inform patients of the solutions available to them. 

What is cellulite? 

Cellulite is caused by fibers underneath the skin that can become tight. When this happens, fat cells in the skin are pushed between them, causing the telltale dimpling of the skin known as cellulite. While there are a variety of products on the market that advertise that they can treat cellulite, none of these treat the problem at the source. It is important that the tight, fibrous bands are broken up to smooth the skin—something creams and massages cannot accomplish. 

How can I reduce cellulite? 

Cellulite can be addressed with the use of specialized devices that break down the bands underneath the skin. This is achieved with VASERsmooth. VASERsmooth is the use of a handheld device that cuts the fibers that cause cellulite while also stimulating the production of collagen in the treated area for a firmer, smoother appearance to the skin. VASERsmooth is inserted into small incisions of the skin and used to break down the fibers responsible for the dimpled appearance of the skin. This allows individuals to remove cellulite and feel more confident when wearing clothing that shows more skin. Many patients find that regular treatments after the initial sessions can keep cellulite from returning in the future. 

Am I a candidate for VASERsmooth cellulite reduction? 

At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, Dr. Jack Bertolino and his team are dedicated to providing a wide selection of services to help patients improve their appearance and feel more confident in the skin they’re in. If you are located in the area of Williamsville, NY and are interested in this procedure, we invite you to call (716) 633-6100 to schedule a consultation visit at our facility, located at 5839 Main Street, Suite #102.

Enjoy nonsurgical skin tightening with the Cutera Titan system

Have you considered plastic surgery for skin laxity, but are worried about the costs and risks associated with these procedures? Williamsville, NY area patients who are interested in tightening the skin and improving body contours are encouraged to book a consultation visit with Dr. Jack Bertolino of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics to determine if they are a proper fit for our noninvasive alternative to skin tightening called the Cutera Titan skin tightening system. 

What is Cutera Titan and how does it work? 

The Cutera Titan system is a revolutionary way for patients to tighten skin in areas such as the face, abdomen, and arms to fight skin laxity without the need for plastic surgery. This light-based treatment emits radio frequency energy deep into the skin to heat the deeper dermis levels and stimulate the production of collagen, which tightens and tones.

  •         Noticeable jowls

Who is a good candidate for Cutera Titan treatments? 

During a consultation appointment and initial evaluation with our team, Dr. Jack Bertolino will examine a patient’s current skin situation and look for the areas where skin laxity has occurred. Then, he can make recommendations. For most patients who are interested in tightening skin anywhere on the face and body, the Cutera Titan might be appropriate, especially in cases where mild to moderate skin laxity has occurred.

How dermal fillers can reverse the signs of aging

The team of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics serve patients in the area of Williamsville, NY to provide a wide selection of cosmetic treatments for the skin and body. Additionally, they provide a range of minimally invasive products that are designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles associated with the early signs of aging. Dermal fillers are a popular choice for patients who are not  proper candidates for plastic surgery but want to smooth away unsightly lines and wrinkles that contribute to an aged appearance. These injectables continue to be a wonderful option for both men and women with skin laxity. 

What is a dermal filler? 

Our doctors describe dermal fillers as gel injectables that directly fill wrinkles and folds of the face that make patients look older than they truly feel. These fillers are often formulated with an ingredient called HA, or hyaluronic acid. This element attracts water molecules in the skin, adding volume directly where it is needed. In doing this, the skin is smoothed and many lines are erased. 

How long do dermal fillers last? 

Many patients find that their dermal fillers will last several months before they need to return to the practice for reinjection. This allows them to delay the need for invasive plastic surgery, which isn’t always recommended for patients with mild signs of aging. Dermal fillers are a wonderful alternative that can offer patients a way to look younger, longer, without the need for surgical interventions that can leave behind scarring and become incredibly expensive. 

What fillers are available? 

At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, we are proud to offer the following hyaluronic acid fillers: 

  •         Restylane (Silk and Lyft)
  •         Belotero

What are photofacials?

Dr. Jack Bertolino of the Williamsville, NY area is a dermatologist in the community who serves patients in his practice, Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics. He understands that everyone’s skin is different and requires different care based on their unique situations. When patients want to improve their facial skin’s overall texture and tone, while treating sun-damaged skin and improving its appearance, he may recommend a treatment known as a photofacial.

Understanding the photofacial

With the assistance of our team at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, patients can treat damaged, red skin with photofacials. Photofacials are facial treatments that are administered by providing intense pulsed light, or IPL, that penetrates deep into the skin. In doing so, it provides thermal energy that can stimulate the production of new collagen. Age spots (or sun spots) are gradually faded, and the skin will appear invigorated and refreshed. Several treatments are needed to achieve optimum results, but the dramatic improvements are easy to see!

What can photofacials treat?

There are many conditions that can be treated with IPL photofacials, including: 

  •         Large pore size
  •         Sun-damaged skin
  •         Poor skin texture and tone
  •         Fine lines and wrinkles
  •         Facial redness (including rosacea)
  •         Hyperpigmentation
  •         Freckles
  •         Dull skin complexion and appearance

How long do photofacial treatments last?

Most patients who are having the facial skin treated with photofacials will find that IPL photofacial treatments last less than an hour. Patients are advised to start with a few photofacial sessions spaced about three weeks apart to see how the skin reacts to the treatments and determine if the results patients want to achieve occur. More or less may be recommended depending on the severity of the conditions patients would like to address.

Am I a candidate for photofacials?

Patients who want to improv the skin’s overall appearance while addressing problems such as redness, pigmentation, and aging skin may be considered a viable candidate for this or other skin treatments available at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics.
