What to Know About BB Glow

Having smooth, dewy, glowing skin may be something that you thought you got rid of in your early teen years, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Although you may not get to sneak out of your parents’ house anymore, you can still have that youthful complexion that you miss.

One of the ways that we can help you achieve that dewy skin again is with a BB Glow treatment. During this microneedling treatment, we will apply a combination of hyaluronic acid, peptides, and growth factors to help your skin with collagen, fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone, and texture. Let’s take a closer look at a few more things to know about BB glow.

Does It Work on Everybody?

With some treatments like laser, it’ s only effective on specific skin types and skin colors. One of the many great things about the BB Glow is that it can be used on any skin type or color.

What Are the Benefits?

There are several benefits of the BB glow, including smooth, healthy skin, reduced melanin, reduced pore size, and the reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

How Much Is It?

It costs $450 for a treatment pack of three. Each treatment will be spaced about two to three weeks apart, but we will discuss the details during your consultation.

When Will I See Results?

Patients see results right away, which means that there is no wait time required!

How Long Do the Results Last?

Similar to other treatments, results vary from patient to patient, but you can expect results to last an average of 6-12 months.

Microneedling is one of the most popular skincare treatments in the beauty industry. As a way to help with collagen induction, microneedling alone can give patients real results, but when you combine it with the topical creams we use for a BB Gow, results are even better.

Feel the Burn: How to Get Rid of a Sunburn

A little bit of sun can be good for your soul and give you some vitamin D, but too much sun can cause skin cancer, premature signs of aging, and sunburns. Even if you lather up with a broad spectrum sunscreen when you’re outside, you can still end up with a sunburn, so what can you do to get rid of it? Let’s take a closer look.

Don’t Pick At Blisters

If you got a bad sunburn and blisters have started to form, you may want to pick at them but don’t. Picking at blisters could lead to some permanent scarring or even an infection. Just leave them and don’t touch them. If they pop on their own, try cleaning them with a clean cotton pad and some rubbing alcohol.

Take Ibuprofen

Sunburns can be painful; especially when you’re trying to sleep at night. To help ease the pain and discomfort caused by your sunburn, take some ibuprofen. Ibuprofen is excellent at not only getting rid of the pain but swelling as well; make sure to check with your primary care physician beforehand to ensure that it mixes with other medications that you are on.

Avoid the Sun

The sun and sunburns do not mix. Try to stay out of the sun for the next couple of days to avoid making your current sunburn any worse than it already is. If you have to spend time outside because of work or if you’re on vacation, make sure to cover your skin up with some clothing like a long sleeve shirt.

Try Cold Compresses

Similar to how your skin is really warm when you have a fever, your skin will feel similarly when you have a sunburn. Try applying cold, damp compresses to your skin to help take the heat out of it; just don’t leave any ice packs on the skin for too long because it could cause a type of freezer burn.

Keep your skin extra healthy and protected this summer and use these sunburn care tips. To learn more about skin care contact our Williamsville office 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.

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

Male Sexual Dysfunction

Male Sexual Dysfunction and How to Correct a Long Standing Problem

The aging andropausal male should no longer sit in the shadows awaiting new synthetic drugs form Big Pharma that are ineffective, not covered by insurance and are costly again with no or limited satisfaction. We in the medical profession should be looking to fix the problem, not cover it up and try to only treat symptoms with medications. The aging male (and female) should be treated in a regenerative manner, fixing the sexual problems and rebuilding tissue and blood supply.

Erectile dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is the bane of existence of every man in his time, some faster than others. Age, medical issues (hypertension, diabetes), and habits (smoking and alcohol/drugs) add to the frustration of achieving youthful sexual wellness. Today, doctors can help in a natural way to fix vascularity and get rid of plaque, opening up the canals thereby improving male sexual satisfaction. This is a God-given function that does not have to end. What is life, but to fully enjoy one’s existence?

What is libido?

A sexual urge, an emotion, a fantasy or all three? Libido comes from your brain and in the andropausal male, a lack of testosterone causes a falling off of these vital feelings. Therefore, looking at the total and free testosterone and correcting it, putting it into a healthy range makes all the difference. What about the mechanical problems associated with ED? What happens to the vascular supply? Every man and woman loses vascularity over time. Can it be given back? Yes, by stimulating the body to rebuild it.

For men now we have two modalities:

  • Platelet Growth Factors (the P OR Priapus Shot)
    Platelet growth factors from the patient’s blood stimulate growth factors that build vascular blood supply. Sounds gory, but done right it is quick and effective.

  • Acoustic Wave Therapy or Shock Wave Therapy
    AWT are wave forms that are faster than sound which causes microtrauma in the penile shaft so that the body rebuilds the blood supply in what’s called COLLATERAL CIRCULATION. The body rebuilding itself. All procedures have no downtime and have been shown to work.

    What is the difference between VIAGRA/CIALIS versus these therapies? Medications cause dilation of EXISTING blood supplies – we build NEW blood supplies that are natural to the patient. Life is to be enjoyed to the fullest, it’s not your granddad’s time anymore. Get back what you think you lost and thought you could not find again. Think regenerative medicine, think AWT and The P-Shot, and of course think Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics in beautiful Williamsville NY. Call 716-633-6100 today to learn more.
