How to Make Your Laser Resurfacing last Longer

Having perfect skin requires a little bit of maintenance and upkeep on your end. If you suffer from fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, or if you just don’t like the texture of your skin, Dr. Bertolino may recommend some laser resurfacing. Typically, laser resurfacing works by targeting the top few layers of your skin which in turn encourages the growth of newer, healthier skin in its place. To help you maintain your results, we have a list of a few different things that you can do.

Get Treatments Redone

Even though some ablative laser treatments can give patients noticeable results after just one treatment, most no ablative laser treatments will need to be done a few times. Depending on the type of laser we are using, what we are treating, and how your skin responds to it, will help us give you a better idea of just how any treatments you will need. Typically, after one session,  we will have a better idea.

Wear Sun Protection

Directly after your laser treatment, your skin is going to be more sensitive to sun exposure which means that you should try to stay out of direct sunlight. However, even after your skin has healed, we still encourage patients to avoid direct contact with the sun. If you are going to be spending a lot of time outside, make sure that you wear an SPF and a large brimmed hat; that way you are really getting the protection that you need.

Use Good Skin Care

In addition to getting regular peels, we also encourage patients to use good skin care products. For instance, even though you can’t use products that have retinol in them right before a peel or for a little after, you can use them in between. The combination of laser treatments and good anti-aging skin products will help give you the best results.

How to Get Dewy Skin

When temperatures start to warm up and you start wanting to show off more and more of your skin, the last thing that you want is a dry, dull-looking complexion. In other words, warm weather is best when you have dewy skin, right? But unless you are heading somewhere tropical anytime soon, you may not know how you can get a little bit of glow.

The BB Glow

Here at our office, we offer patients a noninvasive treatment called the BB Glow. This semi-permanent multi-step treatment can give patients, like you, real results without you having to go under the knife. During this treatment, we will apply our BB Glow serum to the skin via a microneedling technique. Microneedling helps with collagen induction while the serum contains a combination of hyaluronic acid, growth factors, and hyaluronic acid.

What Are Results Like?

The best thing about the BB glow is that it gives patients a smoother looking complexion that also has that glow to it as well. If you are the type of person who feels like you could never show your makeup-free skin in public because of how dull it is and how much hyperpigmentation that you have, then the BB Glow may be the perfect solution for you. Plus, the BB Glow gives patients instantly hydrated skin that’s softer and smoother. Also, the BB Glow reduces sun spots, lightens the skin, and neutralizes free radicals which will leave you with smaller pores and fewer fine lines and wrinkles.

How Much Does it Cost?

Here at our office, you can get three treatments for $450 and we will space each treatment a few weeks apart to help give you the best results possible.

The great thing about the BB Glow is that it works on all skin colors and types. If you want to learn more about how you may benefit from this procedure, contact us at our Williamsville office today and call  (716) 633-6100.

Vampire Facelift Buffalo NY

How to Recover After a Vampire Facelift

If you thought that the Twilight series made vampires famous, then you haven’t met the vampire facelift. As one of the most popular treatments that we offer our patients, the vampire facelift can help take years off of your face without you ever having to go under the knife. By using a combination of platelet rich plasma and microneedling, we can help patients treat a variety of skincare concerns including fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sun spots, and scars. To make sure that you get the best results from treatment, however, it’s important that you know exactly how to recover.

Watch the Sun

After you have any sort of skin care procedure or treatments done, you should try to avoid the sun as much as possible— especially after a vampire facelift. Why? Because the sun can irritate your skin and slow down your results. For the first week after you get a vampire facelift, try to avoid any direct contact with the sun. If you do have an event that you have planned outside, make sure that you wear a broad spectrum sunscreen.

Use Gentle Products

Another thing that we encourage patients to do is use gentle skincare products that don’t contain any alcohol. Even though alcohol has cleansing components that can be beneficial, it can also irritate your skin as it’s healing. Instead, try to use gentle skincare products or even products that contain anti aging ingredients like hyaluronic acid.

Wash Your Face and Moisturize

As your skin heals from a vampire facelift, you may notice that it gets really dry and starts to scab off in some places. To help you combat these side effects, make sure that you are using a gentle moisturizing cream and moisturizing cleanser both morning and night. After about seven days, your skin should not only look more youthful and vibrant, but your side effects should wear off as well.

Now that you know how to recover from your vampire facelift, it’s time to schedule your skincare consultation with Dr. Bertolino. Contact us at our Williamsville office and call (716) 633-6100.

Cellulite Treatment Buffalo, NY

Let’s Talk VASERsmooth

There are many things to embrace about being a woman and then there are other things that feel more like a curse than anything, including cellulite. If you exercise a lot and eat a really lean diet, but you still have cellulite, then you may be wondering what on earth is going on with your body. You may be surprised to learn that cellulite has less to do with how much fat you have and more to do with things like genetics, hormones, and age. For instance, if you are really lean, but you have a family history of cellulite, then you probably will have it too; no matter how much you exercise or diet. Rather than just dealing with your cellulite, we have a procedure that’s designed to help get rid of cellulite so that you can step into summer feeling more confident and sexier than ever.

Let’s Talk VASERsmooth

Here at Dr. Bertolino’s office, we use a cellulite treatment called VASERsmooth which uses high-frequency ultrasound technology combined with a wand which helps to cut fibrous material that causes dimpling in the skin. The combination of these two instruments helps to loosen the fat from the fibrous bands, liquefy it, and then we can suction it out of the body using the VASER micro-cannula.

What Are Results Like?

Depending on the location and the severity of your cellulite, we may recommend more than one session of VASERsmooth, but we will be able to discuss that with you in more detail during your initial consultation. One thing that we tell all of our patients is that although VASERsmooth will help you dramatically get rid of unwanted cellulite with a few treatments, it won’t prevent new cellulite from forming.

Statistics say that as many as 80-90% of women have cellulite on their buttocks or upper thighs. If you are sick and tired of being one of these staggeringly large statistics, then schedule an appointment with Dr. Bertolino today and call us at our Williamsville office at  (716) 633-6100.

Renuva Buffalo NY

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.

If you are interested in learning a little bit more about Renuva and how it can help you get smoother skin, then contact us at our Williamsville office and call us at (716) 633-6100.

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.

O- shot, Buffalo NY

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.

Skin Care Buffalo, NY

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.
