Learn about anti-aging treatment called Coolifting

It is not uncommon for Dr. Jack Bertolino to see patients in his practice who are seeking antiaging treatments. After the age of thirty, our skin begins to lose collagen and elastin. This results in skin laxity that causes the formation of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. At this point, many men and women want to learn what is available to help in treating these issues effectively. Thanks to continued advances in dermatology and skincare, we now have a wide range of solutions to choose from to improve skin health and appearance, including the Coolifting treatment.

What is Coolifting?

The team at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics describe Coolifting as a revolutionary treatment used to reduce the signs of aging. Also known as the beauty gun, Coolifting allows patients to enjoy a noninvasive facial procedure that offers many benefits, including:

  • Skin tightening
  • Lifting and plumping of the skin
  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improved hydration and oxygenation
  • A more youthful appearance
  • Glowing, radiant skin

The Coolifting procedure uses a mixture of botanicals, carbon dioxide, and hyaluronic acid cooled to a low temperature and applied to the skin using a gun-like device. This combination of ingredients gives the skin a tighter, firmer texture and stimulates the natural collagen production process. This ensures a dramatic improvement in the skin without patients requiring extensive downtime or recovery as is needed with plastic surgery procedures.

How long does a Coolifting treatment take?

Most treatments performed at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics take less than 30 minutes, making it the perfect procedure to be completed during one’s lunch hour. Patients can have the treatment performed in our office and then return to their normal activities immediately after.

How long does it take to see results?

Changes will become noticeable approximately 12 hours after the procedure, and the results can last many months before another treatment should be performed to maintain results and slow the overall signs of aging.

What is a vampire facial?

Do you want to see a more youthful appearance when you look into the mirror? Does the idea of undergoing plastic surgery seem excessive and expensive? Are you interested in harnessing your body’s own healing process to turn back time? Williamsville, NY area patients who are interested in rejuvenation of the face and skin will want to ask Dr. Jack Bertolino of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics about the benefits of undergoing the vampire facial.

What is the vampire facial and what is the goal?

Dr. Jack Bertolino describes the vampire facial as a way of reinjecting platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, back into the patient’s body through injections. Before the procedure is performed, a blood draw is performed. The samples of blood from the patient are placed in a centrifuge, which spins the blood sample and separates out the PRP. Then, this plasma is reinjected into the patient’s face to promote healing and stimulate natural collagen growth. The result? A more youthful appearance!

The goal of the vampire facial is to address aesthetic appearance of the face, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in a more natural method. It is another alternative to cosmetic injectables such as Botox, dermal fillers, and collagen stimulators. However, it can be used in conjunction with cosmetic injectables for an even more dramatic result.

Who is a candidate for the vampire facial?

To determine if a patient is a good fit for the vampire facial, Dr. Jack Bertolino encourages patients to take the time to speak to him during an initial evaluation and consultation visit. During this time, the patient is examined to decide if they are a good fit for this or other aesthetic treatments available at the office.

How do fat transfers work?

At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, we offer a wide selection of treatments that can be used to achieve better skin and improved body contours. Our team of professionals consult with patients to understand their goals and then offer solutions to help them achieve them. Patients who are interested in contouring certain areas of the body without invasive plastic surgery may instead want to ask our team about fat transfers.

How to achieve a better buttocks with fat transfers

While gluteal implants and the “Brazilian butt lift” are common contenders for improving body contours, these do require significant downtime and may increase a patient’s risk of developing infection. These procedures are also pricey. Instead, many patients love the idea of adding curves and volume to the buttocks area in another way with fat transfers. Fat transfers involve two parts—first, fat is removed from another area of the body where excess is available, and then the fat is injected into specific areas of the buttocks to achieve the final result. Because the patient is using their own fat, there is no risk or concern of allergic reactions or rejection. Patients also have a much shorter recovery time with fat transfers versus surgical interventions that may be used.

What are the advantages of fat transfer for buttocks augmentation?

There are several reasons why patients may choose to have buttocks augmentation performed. Some of the benefits of this treatment include:

  • Less chance of rejection to the patient’s own fat cells
  • Natural-looking changes that don’t appear as having “work done”
  • Improvement in another area of the body with fat removal
  • Less invasive experience which means reduced recovery and downtime
  • More affordable option when compared to surgical alternatives
  • Less risks to the patient by choosing a non-surgical approach
  • Less bruising, numbness, and swelling than surgery
  • Faster return to work and other normal daily activities
  • Long-lasting results that ensure improved contours

Treatments for excessive sweating

Many people in the area of Williamsville, NY who deal with excessive sweating, or “hyperhidrosis,” may not realize that it is a medical condition that can be treated with multiple solutions. Dr. Jack Bertolino and his associates are excited to educate patients on their options to keep them from dealing with perspiration that can be damaging to clothes—and self-esteem! This embarrassing condition can be treated using several different modalities at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics.

Understanding hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that can be extremely embarrassing for patients. While it is perfectly normal to sweat in high temperatures and during exercise, other patients may deal with sweating regardless of what they are doing and how warm it is. This sweating affects 2-3% of the general population and can occur:

  • In the underarms
  • On the palms
  • On the soles of the feet

What can be done about hyperhidrosis?

Patients who struggle with hyperhidrosis on a regular basis are often curious to learn about the treatment options available to them. Below are just a few of the more common treatments used at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics may suggest for individuals in the practice:

  • Topical products. There are many over-the-counter and prescription strength antiperspirants that are available to patients to choose from to reduce sweating. Many of these work for patients with mild hyperhidrosis and are used each day to control perspiration.
  • Injections. Some patients choose to use Botox or Dysport injections. These neuromodulators can significantly reduce sweating under the arms for several months before reinjection is needed. This treatment needs to be done regularly to maintain results.
  • Vaser treatment. We also offer a permanent solution to hyperhidrosis with Vaser treatment. The sweat glands are destroyed and then liposuctioned out. Minimal pain is experienced and some patients choose to have oral sedation during their procedure.

Addressing cellulite with today’s technologically advanced solutions

Many women who have it are embarrassed at the texture and appearance of the skin on the thighs and buttocks. This condition is noticeable due to the dimpling and “cottage cheese” appearance that develops on the skin. Cellulite is not related to being obese and can develop on patients of all weights and builds. Cellulite is actually caused by tight fibrous bands that cause the fat cells to pucker through, resulting in the dimpling appearance many women have learned to hate! Thanks to continued advances in medical aesthetics, Dr. Jack Bertolino and his team in Williamsville, NY can ensure dramatic improvements with the use of VASERsmooth treatment.

What is VASERsmooth?

Cellulite is a condition that requires treatment right at the source. The fibrous tissues that are pulling tight and allowing the fat cells to become visible on the skin needs to be addressed to reduce the puckered appearance. In order to do so, a special device known as VASERsmooth can use lasers to break down these tight tissues and smooth the skin. It works right at the source to provide reliable and noticeable improvements in the skin’s texture, breaking down the cellulite that keeps women from spending time at the beach in their swimsuits!

Why choose VASERsmooth?

VASERsmooth is an FDA-cleared device that is proven to reduce the look of cellulite by treating the fibrous bands that contribute to the appearance. VASERsmooth is completely safe and effective when administered by an experienced doctor, and continues to be the first line of defense against cellulite in adult women. Treatment is comfortable and does not require invasive surgeries, allowing women to recovery quickly without any downtime. And the results speak for themselves!

Is there a way to treat unwanted stretch marks?

Whether you’ve experienced significant weight loss or have recently been pregnant, you may be well aware of the marks on the skin known as stretch marks. Stretch marks are imperfections that develop on the second layer of skin called the dermis. They remain after periods where the skin has been stretched tight. These streaks form anywhere on the body, but are most commonly seen on the stomach, thighs, and breasts. Many of these are visible when patients wear a bathing suit, which can make them feel self-conscious about their skin’s appearance.

While there are many creams and lotions on the market that tout the ability to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, most of these fail to provide the results patients desire. This is when patients visit the practice of Dr. Jack Bertolino in Williamsville, NY to learn about effective alternative treatments with a professional. At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, we understand how embarrassing some of these marks and imperfections on the skin can be and offer solutions that truly work at reducing and even eliminating stretch marks on the skin. While many of them cannot be eliminated completely, the following solutions are often used to make them far less noticeable without the need for plastic surgeries. Determining eh best treatment for your needs will start with a consultation appointment and initial evaluation with our providers to decide the severity of the stretch marks and to make appropriate recommendations based on the patient’s unique situation.

Methods of treatment

At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, we are pleased to offer the following solutions for stretch marks:

  • Dermawave ultrasonic treatment

Enjoy fat transfer with the Brazilian Butt Lift

Many women are unhappy with their natural curves. They may consider body contouring options such as liposuction or tummy tucks. However, many want to avoid invasive procedures such as this, and instead want a less invasive method of improving the curves of the body. With a procedure known as a Brazilian Butt Lift, or BBL, women can have fat extracted from a problematic area of the body, such as the flanks or abdomen, and have it injected where volume is desired, typically in the area of the buttocks. This provides a lift and enlargement of the buttocks while reducing fat cells in problem areas—all at the same time!

Why choose a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Adding a little “oomph” to the buttocks is one way for women to feel more confident in their appearance, especially if they have a flat or unnaturally small buttocks. Using fat from elsewhere in the body and injected it in precise locations of the buttocks is a relatively effective and minimally invasive way to address less volume where it is desired. These injections are incredibly safe and eliminate the risk of allergic reaction, as the patient’s own fat cells are being used and transferred where desired.

How much downtime and recovery is needed for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Fat transfer through the Brazilian Butt Lift method reduces the downtime needed for more invasive surgical procedures. Instead, patients will need to take some time off of work, especially if they work a position at their job that requires them to sit for extended periods of time. Our doctor will provide patients with aftercare instructions, as well as recommendations as to when to call the office for a follow-up if they are experiencing side effects or complications from their procedure. Most patients can expect to take approximately one week off of work, school, and other activities, and should only resume moderate exercise once their doctor has approved.

Discuss the advantages of the Brazilian Butt Lift, or BBL

Call (716) 633-6100 today to book a consultation appointment with Dr. Jack Bertolino to learn more about this and other minimally-invasive procedures to improve the skin and body.

Understanding BHRT

Dr. Jack Bertolino of Williamsville, NY is a dedicated professional who works with patients at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics to provide top-notch care. When patients are dealing with the unwanted changes that occur with aging, they often look to a medical doctor to learn about ways to manage their changing hormones. During the aging process, both men and women will experience changes in the levels of their hormones which can directly impact their quality of life. At this point, patients need to learn about treatments that can help, including bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT.

Understanding BHRT

BHRT is the balancing of hormones by replacing those which are at lower levels and causing unwanted symptoms related to aging. Therapy replacement options range from medications to injections, but they begin with an evaluation by a medical professional. This evaluation will include a full exam including bloodwork to determine if the hormone levels are lower or higher than they should be. Then, by using a special blend of hormones tailored to the patient’s individual needs, these hormones can be effectively leveled and balanced to address the common symptoms of hormone irregularities. With bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, patients will use skin cream or take a pill that provides the hormones needed to regulate a patient’s body. Bioidentical hormone delivery methods are determined during a consultation appointment with Dr. Jack Bertolino.

Is BHRT safe?

When managed by a medical professional, patients can rest easy that their hormone replacement therapy is both safe and effective at managing proper hormone levels. BHRT, administered as advised by a professional, is a great way to restore one’s natural quality of life and eliminate the symptoms of poorly balanced hormone levels.
