Effective cellulite treatment available at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics

Cellulite is a common concern for many women. This condition, which causes dimpling of the skin around the buttocks and thighs, can be unsightly and cause women to feel self-conscious about how they look, especially during the summer months by the pool. Thankfully, the medical field has developed a range of solutions for patients to consider when they are faced with these imperfections, including advanced treatments such as VASERsmooth.

Understanding VASERsmooth

To understand how VASERsmooth works, patients must first have knowledge as to why cellulite occurs. Cellulite has nothing to do with a patient’s weight. Instead, it is caused by tight bands in the skin that cause fat cells to pucker in-between. This is what causes the “cottage cheese” appearance to the skin. While many patients have tried massages or creams in the past, none of these truly work because cellulite needs to be treated at the source of the problem—the fat cells.

VASERsmooth uses ultrasound energy that penetrates deep into the treated area to combat the fat cells. Fat cells are liquified and are naturally processed through the body’s lymphatic system. This reduces the areas of fat that push through the fibrous bands that cause the formation of cellulite. By doing this, the area becomes smoother and patients can improve their body contours effectively at the same time with the tightening and firming of the skin.

Who is a candidate for VASERsmooth?

Patients in good overall health who follow a proper diet and maintain routine activity and exercise can ask our team about VASERsmooth. Patients who are overweight may not be considered an appropriate candidate until their weight is at a more manageable level. Most patients will find that VASERsmooth is right for their needs and can speak to our team about scheduling an appointment for treatment.

Three ways to rejuvenate the face

At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, we see many adult men and women who want to rejuvenate their facial skin. The skin is the largest organ on the body and is the most exposed to the elements, making it difficult to keep beautiful, clean, and healthy. When patients are ready to enhance their appearance by considering dermatological methods for skin rejuvenation, our team may suggest one of three common solutions:

  • Microneedling – microneedling is a specialized treatment during which the skin is pricked with a device that administers hundreds of small needles that puncture the upper layer of the skin. These pin pricks will stimulate the skin’s natural healing process with increased production of collagen and elastin. Most patients will find that they notice results after one treatment, though many patients have microneedling sessions done regularly to achieve optimum improvements.
  • Cosmetic injectables – another option for patients to consider is that of cosmetic injectables. Cosmetic injectables are used in addressing the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Injectables may include Botox, a neuromodulator that is injected into facial muscles and reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, or dermal fillers, which are gels made with hyaluronic acid. HA plumps the skin by adding volume, resulting in smooth skin when injected directly into the wrinkles and folds of the face. These cosmetic injectables can also be combined for a more dramatic enhancement.
  • Laser and light therapies – laser light is used in many areas of medicine, and is also utilized by doctor to improve the skin’s overall appearance. Laser energy penetrates deep into the layers of the skin to revitalize it. Treatments can be as mild or aggressive as patients prefer, and can be done quickly and easily in our dermatology practice as an outpatient procedure.

Fat Transfer Buffalo NY

Enhance the body with fat transfers

Our team routinely sees men and women who are interested in body contouring procedures—but not in plastic surgery. Dr. Jack Bertolino and his team at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics can assist with a wide range of less invasive treatments, including fat transfers.

How do fat transfers work?

Most patients have excess fat in certain areas of the body that they would like to address, and areas where they feel they could use more shape and volume. We typically see this with patients who want to firm and shape their buttocks, while reducing fat in areas such as the stomach or flanks. In situations such as this, we remove fat from the trouble spot and inject it into the area where body contours can be enhanced. This is a minimally invasive way of treating two areas in one procedure.

What can I expect from recovery from fat transfer procedures?

Because fat transfers are far less invasive than plastic surgery, and do not require incisions, the recovery period for these treatments is much shorter. For a few days after treatments, patients may experience:

  • Swelling
  • Numbness
  • Bruising
  • Sensitivity

However, these are often short-term and resolve on their own. In many situations, our patients are able to return to work within a week and resume all other activities within 14 days. This recovery time is significantly shorter for fat transfers than surgical interventions, which also have the added concerns of cost, scarring, and increased risk of infections. We find that fat transfer procedures are well-received by patients and are often chosen in lieu of plastic surgery because of how easy it can be to treat more than one area without surgery.

Who is a candidate?

Determining candidacy starts with a phone call to schedule a consultation visit with Dr. Jack Bertolino.

Is there a treatment for cellulite?

At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, we hear from many women who are tired of dealing with problems such as cellulite. Cellulite is a dimpling of the skin on the buttocks and thighs that can be extremely noticeable and can make women self-conscious when wearing bathing suits, skirts, or shorts. This condition is not directly related to one’s weight as previously believed. Cellulite is caused by tight bands of tissue underneath the skin that cause fat cells to push through in-between, causing the “cottage cheese” appearance to the skin.

Are there over-the-counter treatments?

Many women have spent hundreds of dollars on creams, massagers, and other products that tout their ability to reduce cellulite. However, these are not effective. This is because the problem isn’t caused by the skin itself, but the tight tissue bands and fibers underneath the skin. The only effective way to actually treat cellulite is with the use of VASERsmooth treatment.

What is VASERsmooth?

VASERsmooth is the one and only treatment available that actually treats the problem at the source. The VASERsmooth device reduces cellulite by actually breaking down the tightened tissue bands, cutting the fibers that cause the development of cellulite. At the same time, this device uses laser technology to stimulate the skin’s production of collagen and elastin, which smooths and rejuvenates the skin in the treated area. With the use of VASERsmooth, women can finally get to the source of the problem and effectively improve the texture of their skin in the buttocks and thighs.

Who is a candidate for VASERsmooth?

Adult women who are healthy and interested in addressing mild to moderate cellulite are welcome to speak to Dr. Jack Bertolino of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics to discuss VASERsmooth treatment. During the initial consultation appointment and evaluation, our team will assess an individual to see if they are a good fit for cellulite treatment. Our team can also ask to see before and after photos of previous patients who have seen dramatic improvement in the appearance of their skin.

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.

What is VASERsmooth?

Dr. Jack Bertolino of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics describes the VASERsmooth treatment as a safe and predictable method of treating cellulite at the source. Using high-frequency ultrasound energy, the device gets underneath the skin and cuts the fibrous bands that contribute to the formation of cellulite.

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?
