What is the vampire facial?

Men and women who want to stop the signs of aging and instead rejuvenate their appearance with surgical intervention may be perplexed as to what can be done to maintain their youth. Fortunately, the answer lies in ourselves! Dr. Jack Bertolino of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics in Williamsville, NY is pleased to offer a solution for patient consideration that focuses on rejuvenation using the patient’s own blood. Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is present in the blood and can be reinjected into various areas of the body for rejuvenation. When used as a facial, this treatment is known as the “vampire facial.”

What is the vampire facial?

The vampire facial is a facial that does not use dermal fillers or neurotoxins to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. Instead, the patient provides a blood draw. The blood is then put into a centrifuge to remove the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the elements in the blood. The platelet-rich plasma that is harvested is then reinjected into the skin tissues. This helps in promoting tissue rejuvenation, firming the skin and reducing the appearance of imperfections. The vampire facial continues to be a popular choice for patients with mild to moderate aging skin, and can be used in conjunction with other therapies available at the office for dramatic results and improvements.

Why choose Dr. Jack Bertolino for the vampire facial?

Dr. Jack Bertolino is a licensed provider for the vampire facial, and has the training and experience to provide these injectable treatments for new and returning patients. He has been practicing in the field of medical aesthetics for well over a decade and has built a practice focused on safety and quality.

Stretch mark removal options in Williamsville, NY

Stretch marks are true to their name: they are marks on the skin that develop due to skin stretching. While they are often associated with women who have been pregnant, they can also develop on patients who have any type of weight gain or changes that resulted in stretched skin. These whitish marks are commonly found in areas such as stomach, thighs, and breasts. Any time skin is stretched quickly, it can result in the development of stretch marks, which form on the dermis of the skin—the second layer.

What can be done about stretch marks?

Many patients who are troubled by their stretch marks may want to work with a provider who can offer solutions for fading them and removing them. They are strictly a cosmetic concern for many individuals, and can be a source of embarrassment. Dr. Jack Bertolino and his team at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics encourage patients to consider the benefits of treating stretch marks to make them far less noticeable.

Below are some of the treatments that can eb performed to reduce or eliminate stretch marks on the skin:

  • Intense pulsed light therapies (IPL)
  • Microneedling
  • Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Which treatment is right for me?

Working with an experienced professional is the first step in finding out which treatment option is most appropriate for you. Dr. Jack Bertolino and his team at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics in Williamsville, NY will evaluate a patient and determine the severity of the stretch marks. The treatment chosen or recommended for the patient is based on this information. Patients may need more than one treatment to effectively reduce the appearance of the stretch marks. Discussing this and other solutions is done during the initial evaluation and can help patients make a knowledgeable decision as to what is best for them.

Minimally-invasive skin tightening with Cutera Titan available

Patients who are looking for a skin tightening solution but don’t want to undergo facial plastic surgery will want to ask Dr. Jack Bertolino and his team in Williamsville, NY about the benefits of the Cutera Titan treatment. At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, we are pleased to offer minimally-invasive skin tightening options that can smooth the skin’s surface and erase fine lines and wrinkles associated with the early signs of aging. 

What is the Cutera Titan treatment? 

The Cutera Titan is a specialized device that is cleared by the FDA for the purpose of noninvasive skin tightening. This treatment is different from other skin tightening services such as radio-frequency as it depends on the treatment of the skin using light-based therapy. This provides uniform distribution of energy that cannot be matched by other treatments on the market today. During the Cutera Titan treatment, the handpiece will administer light that penetrates deep within and increases the natural production of collagen and elastin. This in turn reduces skin laxity and smooths away fine lines and wrinkles. Patients who use this treatment will find that it can delay the need for invasive options later on such as plastic surgery facelifts and brow lifts. 

Who is a candidate for Cutera Titan treatments? 

During an initial consultation appointment with Dr. Jack Bertolino of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, patients will talk to him about the specific concerns they have regarding their skin’s texture, tone, and laxity. Then, Dr. Jack Bertolino will perform a thorough evaluation to determine what treatment options might work best for the individual.  Patients of all skin types and ethnicities can see results with the Cutera Titan, but patients with more moderate to severe skin laxity may still be advised to consider surgical interventions. The Cutera Titan is designed for men and women with the early signs of aging and skin laxity.

How IPL treatment improves the skin

Dr. Jack Bertolino and his team of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics in Williamsville, NY work with patients to help them decide the best treatment for their skin. For many of our patients, we may recommend a minimally-invasive treatment such as IPL, also referred to as “intense pulsed light” therapy. This photo rejuvenation solution is a great choice for new and current patients of the area who are looking for a light-based therapy that reduces wrinkles, firms the skin, and addresses imperfections such as age spots, broken blood vessels, facial redness, and enlarged pores. 

How does IPL work? 

Intense pulsed light treatment works by penetrating deep within the skin’s layers with heat energy that stimulates the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin. In doing so, this firms the skin, reduces wrinkles, and improves texture and tone. The entire process is done quickly in the dermatologist’s office with minimal pain and discomfort. 

What can IPL treat? 

Patients may seek out IPL treatments for a variety of reasons. IPL can address: 

  •         Age spots/sunspots
  •         Enlarged pores
  •         Facial redness
  •         Fine lines and wrinkles
  •         Broken blood vessels
  •         Rosacea

What can I expect from my IPL appointment? 

When patients arrive at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics for their IPL treatment, they will be seated in a comfortable treatment chair in the examination room. The face is cleansed to remove impurities and makeup. A specialized cooling gel is then applied to the treatment area and dark glasses are provided to protect the eyes. For patients with low pain tolerance, a numbing cream may also be administered onto the skin. The IPL handpiece is then placed on the skin and moved around the face as light pulses are delivered. Patients might feel some stinging sensations but this is often well-tolerated. The sensation might feel like a rubber band against the skin. The entire process takes about 30 minutes when treating the face.

What is liposculpture by Vaser?

While a combination of diet and exercise is a great to achieve a healthier body, it is also helpful in reducing fat throughout the body. However, some patients may still experience fat on specific areas of the body. These stubborn areas of fat may still remain no matter how much you exercise and watch your nutritional intake. If you are having trouble with stubborn fat that just won’t budge, you may want to connect with a medical aesthetic provider and ask about advanced fat reduction services such as liposculpting with Vaser. 

What is liposculpture by Vaser? 

Liposculpture by Vaser, sometimes referred to as Vaser LipoSelection, is a unique service available at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics in Williamsville, NY to address targeted areas of unwanted fat on the body. Body contouring with this treatment is a highly effective way to remove fat cells from the body while reducing the invasiveness of such previous treatments such as liposuction and tummy tucks. 

Liposculpture by Vaser works by using pulsed ultrasound energy that breaks up fat depositing in the body and allows it to be easily removed with suction. A few small incisions are made in the treatment area where a saline solution is injected after the area is numbed. The fat is emulsified and easier to remove with a special device that slides into the injection site to manually remove it. 

How long does it take to see results? 

While there are noticeable changes that can be seen right after the procedure, the best results are achieved several months later. Patients love how they can reduce scarring and recovery time associated with traditional liposuction services available with a plastic surgeon. 

Call Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics today! 

Williamsville, NY area dermatologist, Dr. Jack Bertolino, is here to help new and current patients with a wide range of medical aesthetic services for the face and body.

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

Call the office at (716) 633-6100 to request a consultation visit with our team, and get started improving your appearance.
