Have Cellulite? How Renuva Can Help

No matter how slim you are or how much you workout, you may still have cellulite that makes you feel self-conscious about the skin that you are in. Rather than covering up your dimpled thighs all spring break, let Dr. Jack Bertolino help you fight off your cellulite. But how?

What’s Renuva?

You’ve likely heard of dermal fillers for your face or maybe you’ve even tried them yourself before, but did you know that there are fillers that are for things like cellulite as well? Renuva is a new FDA approved filler that uses cadaver fat which is then injected into your skin to help smooth out cellulite dimples which give you that model worthy skin.

Why Renuva?

The trickiest part about cellulite is that it’s virtually impossible to get rid of. No matter how much weight you lose, or how much you exercise you get, your cellulite likely won’t go away. Renuva can help you almost instantly get rid of your cellulite so that you can fit into a swimsuit and feel more confident than ever before.

What Makes Renuva Unique?

Even though other dermal fillers are really good at helping patients get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, they can’t necessarily be used to help get rid of dimpling skin. Renuva, however, cannot only do what traditional fillers can but it’s also ideal for filling in dimpled skin. Additionally, another unique benefit of Renuva is that it tends to last a little bit longer than other types of dermal fillers.

Coollift

FAQs About The CooLifting Gun

It used to be that the only way patients could get rid of volume loss, fine lines, and wrinkles was by either getting a procedure done that would give them very minimal results or by getting a surgical procedure done. After all, you can’t have your cake and eat it too, right? Here at Dr. Jack Bertolino’s office, he offers patients a variety of different treatments to help patients like you, get real results without having to get an invasive procedure done. One of the treatments in particular that he encourages some patients to get uses a treatment called the CooLifting gun.

What’s the CooLifting Gun?

This unique treatment consists of combining extremely high concentrations of CO2 at both very high pressure and very low pressure. The thermal shock brought on by the intense cold temperature generates a dermis reaction which stimulates underlying tissues in the skin. When this happens, the vessels expand and contract which helps to activate blood microcirculation, induce collagen production and elastin, and increase the oxygen in the tissues.

What Does CooLifting Feel Like?

One of the many unique benefits of CooLift is that it doesn’t hurt. In fact, most patients only experience a slight amount of pressure on their face but they don’t feel any pain at all.

What Are Results Like?

After one CooLifting treatment, many patients experience results that last 2-4 weeks. The more treatments patients undergo, the longer it typically lasts. On average, we encourage patients to get about 3-5 CooLift procedures done. During your initial consultation with Dr. Bertolino, he will have a better idea of just how many treatments will be necessary.

The best way for both you and Dr. Bertolino to determine whether or not CooLifting will be successful is through a consultation. To schedule your consultation, contact our Williamsville office today and call us at (716) 633-6100.

How to Really Enjoy Your Valentine’s Day This Year

Valentine’s Day is all about being with the one you love most of all and showing them just how much you care. Make this Valentine’s Day your best Valentine’s Day yet with a few different procedures from Dr. Jack Bertolino.

For Women: The O-Shot

We’ve raved about the O-shot (referred to as the orgasm shot) on our blog before because we have seen our female patients get the sexual satisfaction they’ve been wanting with this shot. If you really want to enjoy your Valentine’s Day as a woman, then consider getting the O-shot. By injecting platelet-rich plasma into the clitoris and upper vagina, this treatment helps enhance a woman’s sexual satisfaction.

For Men: The P-shot

Similar to the O-shot, the P-shot is designed to help men who suffer from erectile dysfunction. By using platelet-rich plasma and then injecting it into the penis, the P-shot helps with sexual stimulation, longevity, and the ability to sustain an erection throughout intercourse; all of which any man wants right before Valentine’s Day.

Lip Fillers

If you feel like you don’t have any problems with your sexual satisfaction, then you may want to just consider getting lip fillers. Lip fillers are a temporary way to add volume and contour to your lips. During your initial consultation with Dr. Bertolino, he will discuss the results that you want from lip fillers and then help you choose the right dermal filler for you. Then, either during this same appointment or another appointment, he will make strategic injections around the lips to help add the fullness that you want. The results? Sexier, fuller lips.

Get yourself ready for Valentine’s Day with these treatments from our office. To learn more about these and some of your other treatments, contact our Williamsville office today and give us a call at (716) 633-6100.

How to Make Healthy Skin Your New Normal During the Winter

If there’s one thing that we are known for in Western New York it’s our nasty snowstorms. Even though snow may be pretty to look at, it can dry out your skin and make it feel rough in texture. To help you get a smoother more moisturized complexion during these harsh winter months, Dr. Bertolino has created a list of things for you to focus on.

Exfoliating

Both exfoliating at home and in our office are two things that Dr. Bertolino recommends. Every time you exfoliate properly, you help to get rid of dry, chapped skin which helps to encourage the growth of healthier skin in its place. Even though weekly at-home exfoliating scrubs can get rid of a little bit of dry skin, you may also want to consider microdermabrasion as an option. Microdermabrasion is a tool that uses crystals to exfoliate the skin; leaving you with smoother, healthier skin in the process.

Moisturizing

After you have properly exfoliated your skin, it’s time to moisturize. When choosing a moisturizing cream for cold months like January, make sure that you use a moisturizing cream that is thick in texture; that way you know that your skin is really getting the moisture that it needs. If you feel like you aren’t getting the most out of your moisturizer, then we may recommend microneedling. Microneedling is not just collagen induction therapy, but it is also a treatment that helps your skin retain skin products as well.

Protectant

You may forget about sunscreen when there’s so much snow outside that you can swim in it, but it’s just as important to wear sunscreen in the winter as it is in the summer. Why? You are equally as prone to getting sun damage.

Having rough, dry skin during these cold winter months is normal, but it doesn’t have to be your normal. Find a new normal and use the tips listed in this article. To learn more, contact us at our Williamsville office and call us at (716) 633-6100.

Giving the Gift of His & Her Sexual Wellness for the Holidays

Gift giving can either be fun or stressful. If you are looking for the perfect gift to give to your significant other, why not make it something that you can both enjoy? Here at our office, we offer patients a few different ways to help both males and females embrace and enjoy their sexual wellness a little bit more during the holidays. Let’s take a closer look at some options for the man or woman in your life.

For Her

If you are looking for a way to help your wife or girlfriend heighten their sexual sensations, then we have two different services for her to choose from ThermiVa and the O-Shot.

ThermiVa: Typically, when you think of collagen you probably associate it with the collagen in your skin. However. You have collagen throughout your body; including in your vaginal tissues.

As you age, your body starts to lose collagen which can result in pain during intercourse and decreased orgasm. With ThermiVa, we use radiofrequency technology to heat your vaginal tissues to help improve sexual satisfaction and comfort.

O-Shot– Plasma is a protein that is found in your blood, and it can be used for a variety of different procedures including vaginal rejuvenation. By injecting plasma into the vaginal walls, the O-Shot works to stimulate the growth of new tissues in the vagina which helps females reach a heightened sense of sexual gratification.

For Him

Acoustic Shock Wave Therapy. Even though pharmaceuticals have been used in the past for erectile dysfunction disorder, they don’t treat the problem. With acoustic shock wave therapy, it creates new vessels which help to solve erectile function from the inside.

P-shot

Similar to the O-Shot, the P-Shot uses platelet-rich plasma to help stimulate a man’s sexual satisfaction. When injected into the penis, PRP helps to stimulate the growth of new tissue and blood vessels in the penis which helps with erections, sexual stimulation, and sensitivity. 

If you want to give your significant other a gift that you can both enjoy, consider one of these treatments from Dr. Bertolino. To learn more, contact our Williamsville office today and call us at

3 Things to Ask Santa For This Year

Are you in the process of making your list and checking it twice? If you want to make sure that you get exactly what you want for Christmas, then we have a few suggestions for you. Based on some skin care concerns, Dr. Jack Bertolino has created a list of a few different procedures that you may want to ask for for Christmas.

Acne Scars

If you thought that you’d be done with your acne in your teens but you still have acne scars in your adult years, then Dr. Bertolino may recommend a treatment like microneedling. Microneedling is ideal at treating a variety of skin care issues including acne scars. By targeting the top few layers of your skin, microneedling encourages the natural production of newer, healthier skin in its place; leaving you with fewer signs of acne scars in the process.

Cellulite

If you loathe your cellulite, then you’re not alone. Cellulite is one of those genetic things that even the fittest of people can get; making it that much more frustrating. To help treat your cellulite, Dr. Bertolino may recommend a treatment called Vaser Smooth which works to actually break up the dimpling to leave you with smoother skin.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Depending on the severity of your fine lines and wrinkles and where they are located, you may want to ask Mr. Clause for either dermal fillers or Botox. Botox is typically used around the eyes and across the forehead whereas fillers are used around the nose and mouth.

Before you land on one of these procedures, Dr. Bertolino will want you to come in to our office for a consultation. During your consultation, he will be able to determine which procedure is going to give you the best results. Are you ready to learn more? Schedule your consultation today and call us at our Williamsville office at (716) 633-6100.

Can Your Thanksgiving Feast Give You Healthier Skin?

Having healthy skin starts with doing small things like washing your face twice a day, wearing a sunscreen on a daily basis, coming in to see Dr. Jack Bertolino for regular treatments, and watching what you eat. To help you make wise food choices this Thanksgiving, Dr. Bertolino has created a list of foods that are good for your skin.

Pumpkin

If there’s one staple (other than Turkey) that’s on everyone’s table during Thanksgiving, it’s pumpkin. Pumpkin is full of beta-carotene which eventually converts itself to Vitamin A which is good for preventing fine lines and wrinkles. And one of the great things about pumpkin is that you can either eat it as a savory side dish with some butter and salt, or you can eat it as a pumpkin pie dessert.

Sweet Potato

Just in case, you didn’t realize how good Vitamin A was for your skin by reading the pumpkin section, then let’s talk about sweet potato. Sweet potato is also full of Vitamin A; in fact, one serving of sweet potato contains 200% of your daily Vitamin A intake. And when you have enough Vitamin A in your diet it helps encourage the growth of healthier skin.

Kale

It’s no secret that kale is good for your body but did you know that it’s good for your skin as well? Kale is full of antioxidants which help with skin cell turnover; leaving you with smoother, younger, healthier looking skin in the process. Rather than serving up a traditional green salad on Thanksgiving, try a kale salad instead.

If you are what you eat then you may as well eat some vitamin-rich food this Thanksgiving. If you are interested in learning more about other ways that you can take care of your skin, contact Dr. Bertolino at our Williamsville office and call us today at (716) 633-6100.

A New Type of Facelift: The Thread Lift

One thing that we always talk about here at our office and one thing that Dr. Jack Bertolino prides himself on is his unique and innovative techniques to help patients get more youthful looking skin. If you have always wanted to get a traditional facelift, but are a little bit nervous about the surgical procedure and the recovery time then you may feel at a loss for what to do. Here at our office, Dr. Bertolino offers patients a unique type of facelift called The PDO Euro Thread Lift.

What’s the PDO Euro Thread Lift?

This unique non-invasive facelift procedure uses the use of threads that are inserted underneath the skin in the face and neck. Once the threads have been properly inserted, then Dr. Jack Bertolino will tighten them which will lift your sagging skin and get rid of a variety of issues like fine lines and wrinkles around the cheeks, mouth, nose, neck, or anywhere else on the face.

Why Is It Popular?

The biggest reason why this surgical procedure is popular amongst our patients is that it is non-invasive which means that there is no surgery required or downtime. In fact, you can come in to get this procedure and then go directly afterward back to work or taking care of your family. One of the greatest things about this is that we can actually call it the lunchtime lift because it is, in fact, what a lot of patients do; they come into our office on their lunch break to get this lift and then go right back to work afterward.

Is getting a facelift without having to undergo surgery something that sounds appealing to you? If so, schedule your consultation with Dr. Bertolino at our Williamsville office and call us today at (716) 633-6100.

Vampire Facelift Buffalo NY

Will A Vampire Facelift Make You Look Like a Vampire Before Halloween?

If you want to really get into the Halloween spirit this year, then Dr. Jack Bertolino has the perfect solution for you: the vampire facelift. Here at our office, we use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to help our patients with a variety of different issues like hair loss, urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction, and sexual dissatisfaction in women. But, we also use PRP for cosmetic issues as well. So, how can the vampire facelift help you get the skin of your dreams? Let’s take a closer look.

How Does It Work?

The spookiest part about PRP is that we have to actually extract the platelet-rich plasma for your blood by spinning it through a machine called Pure Spin Centrifuge which has an 87.7% platelet recovery which is way higher than other systems. Once we have extracted the plasma, we will then inject it into your skin on its own or we will combine it with microneedling. Typically, we encourage patients to combine it with microneedling because it allows the PRP to penetrate into the skin and pores more easily.

What Is It Used For?

When we use PRP for cosmetic purposes, we can help patients who have issues with:

  • Stretch Marks
  • Acne Scars
  • Damaged Skin
  • Rosacea
  • Fine Lines
  • Dark Circles Under the Eyes
  • Tightening and Toning
  • Fat Grafting After Liposculpture

As you can see, there is no better time of year than now to come into our office to get a vampire facelift. By combining PRP with microneedling, we can help patients significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks, and just help enhance their appearance overall.
