Treatment for hyperhidrosis with Vaser

Patients who have been diagnosed with hyperhidrosis understand how it can negatively impact their lives. This condition, which is referred to as “excessive sweating,” can cause both men and women to feel extremely self-conscious in everyday situations. No one likes to sweat through their clothes, even after applying antiperspirants. Hyperhidrosis can negatively impact one’s everyday life, ruining not only their clothes, but their confidence. With Vaser treatment at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, patients with hyperhidrosis can find permanent relief of their sweating symptoms!

Vaser hyperhidrosis treatment

The Vaser treatment available at the practice of Dr. Jack Bertolino ensures that men and women find a permanent solution to sweating through their favorite clothes! This treatment uses ultrasonic energy that is administered to the underarms to stop the activity of the sweat glands underneath the skin’s surface. With only local anesthetics, Dr. Jack Bertolino can help patients achieve long-lasting results that outlast Botox injections. A very small incision is made in the underarm, and the Vaser wand  is inserted through it to apply ultrasonic energy to treat the axillary sweat glands. Within 24 hours, most patients can resume their normal activities, while feeling more confident with their condition.

Why choose Vaser treatment?

There are many other methods of treatment available for patients with hyperhidrosis. In many cases, patients with mild cases can use medications or special antiperspirants for noticeable results. However, severe cases of hyperhidrosis requires a more aggressive treatment to see changes. While Botox injections have been used in the past for treating hyperhidrosis, the results of these injections are not nearly as long-lasting as those achieved with Vaser treatment.

Effective treatment for cellulite at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics

Cellulite. Many women who deal with this dimpling of the skin on their thighs and buttocks often dream swimsuit season. Cellulite can be a problem for anyone, and does not only impact patients who have had excess weight in the past. This “orange peel” skin can impact 85% of women at some point during their adult lives. Cellulite is formed when bands within the skin are tight and fat deposits pucker through these connective tissues. This creates the dimpling appearance commonly known as cellulite.

How can cellulite be treated?

Knowing how cellulite is formed helps patients in determine the best treatment options for their needs. Because of the connective tissues underneath the skin, massaging the skin or applying topical creams will do nothing for treating cellulite. Instead, these connective bands need to be cut to loosen them and smooth the skin. This can be achieved with today’s technology, specifically with the VASERsmooth treatment available at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics in Williamsville, NY.

Laser hair removal provides permanent hair-free skin!

Many men and women dream of avoiding the daytime regimen of removing unwanted hair. Whether you are waxing, plucking, or shaving, hair removal can take time and money. Instead, Dr. Jack Bertolino of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics encourages patients to speak to him about the benefits of a more permanent option known as laser hair removal.

Understanding laser hair removal treatments

Laser hair removal is a specialized solution for unwanted hair. Using laser light emitted from an FDA-cleared device, the doctor can target hair follicles on the face and body and damage them. This eliminates the follicle from reproducing hair—permanently! The laser light provides results, while leaving the surrounding skin and tissues intact.

Patients need to know that laser hair removal does not happen during a single appointment. Instead, patients will need to scheduled several treatment sessions over time, typically one every few weeks. With each treatment, the thickness of the hair will be reduced and patients can achieve full hair removal. Alternatively, if patients are interested in thinning hair on a specific area of the body, such as the arms or chest, fewer treatments may be performed to get the desired results.

Who is a candidate for laser hair removal?

Patients of all genders, skin types, and hair types can undergo laser hair removal. This is because the treatment is remarkably safe and effective when administered by a trained and experienced professional. Dr. Jack Bertolino and his team at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics find that with a proper evaluation and consultation appointment, patients can find out if they are a good fit for treatment and discuss what to expect with these services. Our team can educate patients on the process and guide them through their treatment sessions to see the results they deserve. The cost of treatment can also be discussed during this initial examination.

How can I manage my acne?

Acne is a skin condition that can impact any patient at any age. In fact, many of the adult patients we see in our practice are seeking a solution to chronic acne. Acne can be anywhere from mild to severe, and there are several different types of acne that can develop on the skin. With a proper diagnosis, patients can work with Dr. Jack Bertolino of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics to find a solution.

Acne management solutions

There are many ways in which a patient may attempt to control their acne condition. In some cases, patients can utilize over-the-counter products and changes in their skin care regimen to address the problem. Others with more severe or resistant acne problems will want to work with a dermatological team of professionals such as those available at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics. Below are a few options for patients to consider when it comes to treating acne:

  • Skincare products. Improvement of acne starts at home with the daily use of cleansers, moisturizers, toners, and cream. Patients can ask Dr. Jack Bertolino about the products they currently use and determine if a change is needed to see improvement.
  • Medications. Over-the-counter products that contain ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid may be beneficial for some of our patients. However, some patients may require stronger solutions that are prescription only.
  • Light therapies. Once patients are on appropriate medications and have tailored their daily skin care routine to their needs, a discussion of light therapies may occur. Light therapies, such as intense pulsed light or blue light therapies, can be an effective way of treating the bacteria that may be present on the skin and reducing the redness and inflammation common with moderate to severe acne. Light therapies are noninvasive but have been shown to provide dramatic results for those seeking improvement for their conditions.

articular joint injectables | Williamsville, NY

Intra articular joint injection services with Dr. Jack Bertolino

At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics in Williamsville, NY, Dr. Jack Bertolino helps patients in the community look and feel amazing, and with regenerative medicine solutions such as intraarticular joint injections, patients can address common complaints of joint pain from conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, or sports injuries. Treatment for these conditions is addressed by combining platelet-rich plasma and ALMI fat stem cells.

What can I expect from my intra articular joint injection visit?

First and foremost, Dr. Jack Bertolino will evaluate a patient to determine if they would benefit from this treatment. A full medical history is evaluated to ensure that this treatment will be advantageous for the individual. Once patients have decided to move forward with the injections, they will need to undergo harvesting of the stem cells and the platelet-rich plasma. A minimally invasive liposuction procedure is used to extract fat from the patient’s abdomen to be used in harvesting the stem cells, while a blood draw is taken from the patient to help separate the platelet-rich plasma from the red blood cells and platelet-poor plasma. These harvested stem cells and PRP are then injected into the patient in the area of concern. Because the injectable is derived from the patient, there is no risk of allergic reactions. Additionally, there are no side effects as there may be with steroid shots or cortisone shots commonly used in a similar manner.

Is this treatment effective?

Absolutely! Dr. Jack Bertolino of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics in Williamsville, NY has found that many patients benefit greatly from this procedure and will find it to be an effective way to address many joint pain conditions that can impact one’s daily quality of life. Patients can use these injections repeatedly over time to maintain the results they achieved after their first injection with Dr. Jack Bertolino.

hair restoration | Buffalo, NY

Enjoy hair restoration with ALMI treatment

At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, we see a lot of patients who are unhappy with hair thinning and loss associated with aging and other conditions. We are pleased to offer reliable solutions for patient consideration, including the ALMI hair restoration process. The ALMI process is highly desirable because it allows Dr. Jack Bertolino to regenerate hair follicles that are otherwise de-activated and restore hair without undergoing surgical interventions and dealing with the side effects of medications or topicals. Instead, this treatment combines two methodologies including platelet-rich plasma and fat transfer to achieve thicker hair.

How does it work?

The ALMI hair restoration technique extracts stromal and stem cells from another area of the body, typically the abdomen, and injects them into the scalp as a way of triggering hair regrowth and cellular regeneration. By doing this, patients can experience hair thickness, strength, volume, and overall growth.

What to expect during your procedure

During the ALMI hair restoration procedure, the doctor will first take the extractions from an easily accessible area of the body before reinjecting the cells directly into the scalp. The entire procedure from start to finish takes less than 45 minutes to complete, and patients do not require any downtime or healing from the treatment. Because the procedure does not involve the injection of manmade materials or medication, there are no side effects to the procedure. Once the treatment has been done, patients will begin to notice the growth of hair in areas that were once unable to produce hair. This may be seen as early as one month after treatment. While one treatment can provide some results, it is best to have multiple procedures performed over time for optimum results.

Interested in hair restoration with the team at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics?

We welcome new and existing patients into our office to discuss ALMI hair restoration and other cosmetic procedures available in our state-of-the-art facility.

Achieve a facelift without plastic surgery using the Silhouette Instalift treatment

As we age, our skin begins to lose its firmness and youthful appearance. Skin laxity occurs and contributes to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. This can add to the look of aging skin and can cause patients to feel self-conscious about their appearance. For those who are looking to restore their youth, many consider plastic surgery. However, a facelift is not the only option for these individuals. Instead, the team at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics provides a non-invasive option called the Silhouette Instalift.

Understanding the Silhouette Instalift procedure

Instead of cutting into the skin and increasing one’s risk of infection and scarring, the Silhouette Instalift offers an alternative method for achieving a youthful look. With the use of specialized threads that are inserted to provide lift and hold, patients can reduce the appearance of loose jowls and nasolabial folds. These specialized, bidirectional thread lifts are dissolvable and can last for up to three years. In addition to dissolving and not requiring removal, these threads can stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen to restore volume to the facial areas and fill facial hallows. The threads and cones used to aid in lifting the skin are FDA approved and have provided reliable, natural-looking results for many of our patients.

What are the benefits of the Silhouette Instalift treatment?

There are several advantages for patients to consider when thinking about the Silhouette Instalift procedure:

  • Treatment does not require cutting into the facial area
  • Treatment is minimally invasive and discomfort is well-tolerated by our patients
  • Patients do not need to schedule extensive downtime
  • Patients can reduce the risk of infection by avoiding surgical interventions
  • Threads are dissolvable after several years, offering long-term results

What cellulite treatment is effective at reducing cellulite appearance?

Cellulite is a condition that impacts many adult women. It is most recognizable on the thighs, buttocks, and even the abdomen, and results in the formation of dimpled skin. Cellulite can make women feel self-conscious about their appearance when wearing revealing clothing, including bathing suits. Many women are unsure as to how they can improve the appearance or even eliminate cellulite. Dr. Jack Bertolino of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics is pleased to provide a solution: VASERsmooth.

What is VASERsmooth?

VASERsmooth is a revolutionary solution for women with cellulite. This device looks like a large pen and can administer high-frequency ultrasound energy into the skin. By doing so, it can break down the tight, fibrous tissue bands that result in the dimpling of fat pockets. At the same time, it mobilizing fat to even it out and provide a smoother appearance to the treatment area.

Many dermatology practices may tout laser treatments that can improve cellulite. However, this procedure is much safer and more effective because of the treatment works at a lower temperature, eliminating the risk of burning of the skin. Additionally, the VASERsmooth treatment also allows the fat cells in the skin to be removed and used for fat and stem cell grafting.

Is it painful to have VASERsmooth treatment?

Absolutely not. Our team can apply a numbing cream to the area of treatment to reduce the sensation of the ultrasound energy. It is often a heating sensation that is well-tolerated. VASERsmooth eliminates the need for any incisions in the skin which increase the risk of infection.

Am I a candidate for VASERsmooth?

Most adult women are appropriate candidates for VASERsmooth treatment. Individuals with moderate to severe cellulite can see noticeable results with one or more treatment sessions. Our team can evaluate a patient prior to undergoing treatment and discuss the needs and expectations.
