ALMI – Anti Aging Buffalo NY

What’s the Deal With ALMI?

ALMI – Anti Aging Buffalo NYALMI isn’t just another acronym to throw by the wayside. ALMI or autologous lipocyte micronized injection is a unique procedure that we use at Dr. Jack Bertolino’s office to treat a variety of concerns including sexual wellness, hand rejuvenation, facial rejuvenation, hair rejuvenation, and pain management. So, what’s up with the hype behind this treatment and what makes it so unique? Let’s take a closer look.

What’s the Big Deal?

If you are the type of patient who watches what you put in your body and on your body, then you will want to learn more about ALMI. ALMI uses your body’s tissues to restore tone, volume, and texture. This all-natural procedure uses your platelet-rich plasma from your blood to help change your life for the better. Plus, because it’s non-invasive, you won’t have to worry about any downtime or recovery. In fact, each session takes an average of 45 minutes long which means that you can come in on your lunch break to get it done and go right back to work.

Platelet-rich plasma or PRP contains hundreds of proteins which help to promote the healing process in your body to help with pain management, fine lines and wrinkles, collagen production, hair growth, and more. Once the plasma is extracted from your blood, we will combine it with adipose cells and their stem and stromal cell components, and inject it into the afflicted tissues. Once the injections have been done, ALMI is proven to help give patients real, all-natural results.

If you suffer from chronic pain, collagen loss, joint pain, hair loss, or have problems with your sexual wellness; then it may be time to consider ALMI. Are you ready to learn more? Schedule your consultation at our office today: (716) 633-6100.

Hyperhidrosis Treatment Buffalo, NY

Get Rid of Excessive Sweating

Hyperhidrosis Treatment Buffalo, NY Sweating after running a big race or taking a spinning class is one thing, but excessive sweating for no rhyme or reason may be due to a condition called hyperhidrosis. Not only is hyperhidrosis embarrassing, but it can be a nuisance as well. If you suffer from excessive sweating— especially under your arms—  you are not alone. In fact, it is estimated that around 2-3% of Americans suffer from this conditions. Luckily, we have a solution for you.

How Can Hyperhidrosis Be Treated?

Hyperhidrosis can be treated with a variety of treatments including Botox, but here at our office, Dr. Jack Bertolino likes to use a treatment called Vaser. To start out, we will fill the underarm area with a saline solution which numbs the area and shrinks the blood vessels. Then, a small Vaser probe will release sound technology into the sweat gland tissues to destroy them while also breaking up unwanted fatty tissues without damaging surrounding tissues. Once the probe is injected, the fat liquefies and dissolves into a tumescent solution. After which, small cannulas are inserted through a small incision to help remove the sweat gland and fat which reduces sweating.

Why Get Vaser Instead of Botox?

Although Botox is effective, it only lasts about 3-4 months on average. The biggest benefit of Vaser is that it’s permanent, which means you won’t have to worry about scheduling Botox injections every couple of months.

Does Vaser Hurt?

One of the biggest questions that we get from our patients is whether or not Vaser hurts. Luckily, pain from Vaser is minimal.

Excessive sweating can make you feel like you’ll never own a white shirt ever again— at least one without yellow stains in it. If you suffer from hyperhidrosis, let us help you get rid of your excessive sweating for good. Schedule your consultation at our office today: (716) 633-6100.

O-Shot® Buffalo NY

The O-Shot Vs The P-Shot

O-Shot® Buffalo NYWhen it comes to shots, if you were to put both the O-Shot and the P-Shot into a boxing ring, let’s just say you would have two winners. As two very different shots that help with increased sexuality, sexual pleasure, and more, the O-Shot and P-Shot are two things that are worth learning more about.

What’s the O-Shot?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a unique therapy that is primarily popular at helping increase collagen in the face. However, PRP is also used in treatments like the O-Shot. By extracting the plasma from your blood and then injecting it into certain parts of your body— like your vagina— patients experience tremendous results.

In female patients, we use the O-shot to help with a variety of concerns such as a decreased sexual drive, painful intercourse, difficulty getting an orgasm, and difficulty getting aroused. Patients who get the O-shot experience:

  • Increased sensitivity
  • Tighter vaginal skin
  • More satisfying, improved intercourse
  • Increased sexual desire

What’s the P-Shot?

The P-Shot can work wonders in men who struggle with erectile dysfunction. By using platelet-rich plasma and then injecting it into the penis, the P-Shot helps to:

  • Enlarge the penis immediately
  • Create firmer and stronger erections
  • Straighten the penis
  • Increase sexual sensation
  • Enhance other therapies like Viagra
  • Increase circulation and blood flow to the penis

The results from the P-shot are immediate and will increase after 2-4 weeks.

There are unique benefits to both the O-Shot and P-Shot for men and women. If you want to learn more about these shots, schedule a consultation with Dr. Jack Bertolino at our office today: (716) 633-6100.

Hair Restoration Buffalo NY

What’s Hair Restoration?

Hair Restoration Buffalo NYWhether you’re a male or a female, there’s something to be said about having a full head of hair. After all, why would Chip Gaines always brag about his hair on Fixer Upper? However, although some people are blessed to never lose a hair on their head, there are others who start to show signs of hair loss before they ever even get their first gray hair. If you are suffering from thinning hair, Dr. Jack Bertolino at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics has a hair restoration solution for you to consider. Let’s take a closer look.

How Does It Work?

Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP has really taken the skincare world by storm because of the popular vampire facial procedure. However, PRP can also be sued to help restore thinning hair as well. During this process, we will take blood from one part of your body and then extract the plasma from it. Once we have extracted the plasma, we will then place it on your scalp and leave it on for about 24 hours without touching it or watching it. In some instances, we may also use the Omnilux red LED light which is a device that strengthens follicles and promotes hair growth.

How Often Do I Have to Get it Done?

Although results vary from patient to patient, we typically require three PRP treatments and eight red light treatments over the span of three months. During your initial consultation, however, we will be able to better determine how many treatment plans will be needed for you to get the full results.

If your hair is thinning, hair plugs or implants aren’t your only option. To learn more about Platelet Rich Plasma hair restoration, schedule a consultation at our Buffalo office today: (716) 633-6100.

Scrub-a-Dub: Why Exfoliating Is Important

PearlYou know that one of the biggest no-no’s in the skincare industry is going to bed with makeup on your face because it causes breakouts. And although you may be aware of some basic skin care tips and recommendations, make sure that you don’t forget to exfoliate. Whether you choose to use an exfoliating face scrub, mask, or get a skin care treatment done by Dr. Jack Bertolino at Smooth Solutions, there’s one thing that’s worth talking about: the benefits.

It Can Breathe

Even though your heart, lungs, and the lady at church are likely the first things that come to mind when you hear the term “organ,” your skin is actually the largest organ on your body. As such, it’s important that you ensure that it can breathe properly. As dead skin builds up and dry patches form, however, it can make it harder for your skin to breathe— which is where properly exfoliating comes into play. By helping you get rid of dry, chapped skin, exfoliating is one of the best ways to improve oxygen flow and help your skin breathe.

It’s Clearer

Everyone is prone to getting a pimple or two at least every so often— if not more. One of the best ways to fight blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples? With an exfoliator. By getting rid of trapped dirt, germs, and bacteria on your skin, exfoliating can helps stabilize the oil production on your skin and get rid of that acne.

It Helps Moisturize

If you are spending hundreds of dollars on skincare products, but you aren’t properly exfoliating, your moisturizer isn’t going to be able to penetrate your skin. By getting rid of dry, chapped skin, exfoliating helps your moisturizer reach into the layers of your skin and hydrate it from the inside out.

Here at our office, we offer a variety of exfoliating skincare solutions including exfoliators and treatments. To schedule your consultation, call 716) 633-6100.

Body Sculpting Williamsville, NY

3 Resolutions You Won’t Regret Making

Body Sculpting Williamsville, NYThere are three types of people: the kind who make their new year’s resolutions five months before, the kind who make them last minute, and the kind that don’t make them at all. Make 2018 a year that will go down in the books as the best year ever by, first of all, making resolutions, to begin with, and by making resolutions that will go a long way. Here at Dr. Jack Bertolino office, we offer patients a variety of different body sculpting procedures and treatments to help you get the best body of your life. Consider making resolutions to get one or all of these procedures done this year.

Cellulite

No matter how thin you are, you may still be plagued with enough cellulite to keep you out of a bikini. However, here at Jack Bertolino’s office, we offer a unique cellulite treatment that’s designed to help patients get rid of that cellulite that’s been making you hide your skin with the VASERsmooth system. This unique laser technology works to cut cellulite-causing fibers while promoting the production of more collagen in the process.

Hi-Definition Liposculpture

If you have been hitting the gym hard and have been trading in those Cheetos for carrots, but you still have some stubborn fat you can’t seem to get rid of, then you may want to consider getting Hi-Definition Liposculpture for Dr. Jack Bertolino this year. Unlike traditional liposuction that scrapes the fat out of the body, LipoSculpture not only removes fat from the body but it also reshapes it to help give patients a more toned body.

Fat Transfer

If you have been wanting to accentuate your breasts or buttocks but don’t want to go a traditional route, then you may want to consider getting a fat transfer. During this surgical procedure, fat will be removed from one portion of your body and will then be harvested in either your breasts or buttocks to give you the desired look you’ve been wanting.

Dermal Fillers Buffalo, NY

Gift Giving Alert! Give the Fountain of Youth

Dermal Fillers Buffalo, NYWhen it comes to aging, one of the real complaints that most people have is with their appearance. And although it’s impossible to stop the aging process, it’s definitely possible to slow it down— especially with dermal fillers from Dr. Jack Bertolino. If you have a friend or family member that you just aren’t sure what to gift them with this year, why not give them the fountain of youth? With dermal fillers, you can help to temporarily give them that more youthful complexion they’ve been wanting. Let’s take a closer look at how.

How They Work

Fillers work to add volume to the skin and fill in fine lines and wrinkles— which in turn acts as a semi-fountain of youth. There are three main categories of dermal fillers that Dr. Jack Bertolino likes to use: 1) Hyaluronic acid fillers, 2) calcium based fillers, and 3) Poly-L-Lactic acid fillers. Depending on your friend’s area of concern and the type of wrinkles they have, will help Dr. Jack Bertolino decide what filler will be best for them. By strategically placing them in their skin, Dr. Jack Bertolino can help to temporarily give your loved ones a more youthful looking appearance.

Give a Gift Card

Unlike other gifts that you can wrap and place under the Christmas tree, giving the gift of dermal fillers is a bit different. Because every new patient who gets fillers from Der. Jack Bertolino requires a consultation appointment, the best thing that you can do is either come with your friend to our office or give them a gift card to use on their own time.

Nothing will put quite as big of a smile on your loved ones’ face— and get rid of those smile lines in the process— quite like giving them the fountain of youth. If you would like to learn more about how you can gift dermal fillers this season, contact our Williamsville office today!
