Lip Augmentation 101September 24, 2017 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Cosmetic Procedures
Lip augmentation using injectable filler adds volume and shape to the lips.
Lip augmentation using injectable filler might be right for you if:
Woman have wanted plump lips since ancient times. Since the early 20th century in the United States various methods have been used to achieve this but most of the attempts were unsuccessful and even dangerous. Silicone injections started to become popular in the 1960’s but turned out to have several hazards including forming granulomas and other reactions. Bovine (cow) collagen injections were used starting in the 1980s, but required a skin text weeks before treatment. Also the results didn’t last very long.
Now, injectable hyaluronic acid fillers are available which are require no skin testing and give instant smooth, beautiful results that can last for 6 months.
Celebrities and Lip Augmentation
The influence of celebrities in the entertainment world has people clamoring for perfectly plump lips. Think Angeline Jolie! Another huge factor is the enormous use of selfies and social media. Instagram posts showing bee-stung lips has woman everywhere looking to get “that look”.
The lips are probably the most sensual part of the face. Emotionally suggestive, evoking intimacy and secrets – it’s no wonder lip augmentation is so popular. After all, plump, full lips make people look sexier and more attractive.
Understandably, many people are afraid of pain both during lip augmentation and after treatment. When done carefully and correctly the treatment should be completely painless! Dr. Tanne uses topical freeze spray, a combination of local and nerve block injections and a small vibration device to make numbing comfortable and highly effective. Also, instead of needles, she usually uses a blunt cannula to fill the lips, which is more comfortable and results in minimal to no bruising!!! The results are instant with lips that are gorgeous and natural looking.

The Secrets to Removing Dark Under-Eye CirclesApril 28, 2014 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Cosmetic Procedures
Did you know that dark under-eye circles are not caused by a lack of sleep, but by blood that pools in the vessels close to the skin? Dark circles are the result of blood that pools in the vessels that lie close to the skin’s surface, which is why they can be almost impossible to hide. This also happens when fat bulges out: light cannot be reflected properly, casting a shadow under the eye. Additionally, sun exposure can aggravate under-eye darkness by boosting melanin production, as can allergies, since they cause the veins to become congested and enlarged. A lack of sleep, as well as dehydration, can emphasize dark under-eye circles, but almost always sleep is not the culprit.
Some under-eye darkness is genetic, and related to inherently thin skin. The thinner the skin is under the eye, the more pigmentation shows through. Loading up on vitamin K, both internally and with topical products, can help since it strengthens and clots blood vessels to stop the pooling that causes the darkness. When it comes to concealing under-eye circles and bags, reach for a creamy hydrating concealer as opposed to a blemish-fighting one, which may contain drying ingredients like salicylic acid that are usually too harsh for the under-eye area.
Dark under-eye circles can be difficult to fix, especially if there are cultural or genetic ties. Hydroquinone can help to lighten the area to some degree if the problem is more about discoloration than shadowing. If the darkness is related to melasma, you’ll see more of a dramatic difference with a skin lightener. Excessive sun exposure only intensifies dark circles, so always wear a mineral based sunscreen formulated for the eye area and protect your eyes from the sun at all times with sunglasses.
Another way to battle dark under-eye circles is by injecting hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane or Belotero, into the area. When injected into the shadows under the bag, they can camouflage the darkness by plumping up the area, and give instant results. A more permanent result can be achieved by performing micro fat grafting or fat transfer with Selphyl to this area.

Certain areas of the face are prone to fat loss—others are not. The cheeks and eyes frequently fall victim to the effects of volume loss first; the lips, eyes and temples eventually catch up.

STOP THE FIRST SIGNS OF AGINGMarch 26, 2014 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Cosmetic Procedures
As early as your mid- to late-20’s and into your 30’s, you may start to notice the very first signs of aging, which are usually subtle but still bothersome. What was once a smooth complexion may now be home to small sunspots, crow’s-feet, dark under-eye circles and uneven texture. Instead of letting the signs of aging get the best of you, take matters into your own hands and correct the changes that you’re seeing – you may even be able to prevent them from progressing as you get older with the proper plan of attack.

Get Better Injection Results With Less Bruising – A Gentle Approach to Dermal FillingAugust 7, 2012 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Cosmetic Procedures, Health News
There are many upsides to injectable fillers like Radiesse, Juvederm and Restylane (as well as Botox and Dysport). They work pretty instantly and when done correctly, they can take years off your face by softening wrinkles and adding volume to the face. However, one of the downsides of injectables, albeit temporary, is the potential for swelling and bruising.
As the use of fillers continues to progress in what they can do, so do the technologies that go along with how they are injected. Needles are still a popular choice for injections, but the new wave is cannulas—about 100 times smaller than what is used during liposuction and they have a blunt tip for less trauma when placing volume deeper. A lot more product is injected via one puncture mark. The cannula is moved into various locations before the filler is inserted, to give really good lift. The other upside: Because there are fewer punctures made in the skin, there’s less of a chance of bruising and swelling and when properly done is just as comfortable as when a needle is used after significant numbing.
As for other methods to keep bruising at bay: Prep yourself at least one week before your scheduled procedure. It is best to avoid aspirin, fish oil supplements and Vitamin E supplements. Dr. Tanne also advises her patients to remain off ibuprofen and all other NSAIDS for a few days before filler treatment. Dr. Tanne also recommends that her patients use Arnica pellets, a natural homeopathic medicine placed under the tongue, before and after injections as they say it helps lessen bruising. She also suggests eating some pineapple, which contains the anti-bruising enzyme Bromalain, before filler treatment .
WRINKLE FILLERS – The Easiest Way to Erase 10 Years!November 21, 2011 / Category: Anti-Aging, Cosmetic Procedures
Studies have shown that wrinkles can have a profound impact on self-esteem, so much so that over 16 billion dollars is spent each year simply on camouflage make-up to hide the signs of aging. If you are tired of wrinkles, worry no more. Education is the first step to making the best decision, and education about your options is what we are here to provide.
Facial wrinkles and creases begin to appear as the under-lying collagen and elastin fibers begin to break down and wear out. While this breakdown is part of the natural aging process, it can also result from excessive squinting, frowning and smiling.
Fillers or injectables have become a popular means of wrinkle corrections and addressing loss of facial volume that results from aging, sun damage, stress, age related hormonal decline, weight loss, chronic illness, trauma and or scarring, and lip enhancement. The results are instantaneous and the easiest way to erase 10 years, just like that! No surgery, minimal down time and natural results.
Because there are so many filler options, Dr. Tanne at Cosmetic Laser MD always consults with patients first, and after a careful examination and discussion recommends the filler(s) that is/are best suited to best address each patients’ unique issues.
There are many types of fillers, including the following that are approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and widely available at Cosmetic Laser MD.
Hyaluronic acid gels such as Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Restylane and Perlane may be used to treat lines around the mouth, under the eyes and to plump lips or to provide a 5 Minute “Non-Surgical” Nose-Job. Results last 6-12 months depending on which injectable filler used and which area is filled.
Radiesse which is made of Calcium-based microspheres in a carrier gel is longer lasting than the hyaluronic acid fillers mentioned above and is used to fill deeper folds and lines or to add volume to the face. Radiesse can also be used to fix dents and divets in the face and to provide a 5 Minute “Non-Surgical” Nose-Job.
Select a filler that best suits your particular needs! Selecting the proper filler is an important part of the process. Some fillers are intended for superficial wrinkles and some work best for deeper folds and wrinkles. Others are better for deep cheek hollows and more generalized facial fat loss.
A consultation with Dr. Tanne is your next step for a more youthful look which is only one phone call away. Call us at 973.716.9000.
What causes wrinkles
Options for Wrinkle Reduction.
Wrinkle Fillers or injectables are injected underneath the skin, underneath the wrinkle itself, and act as a physical support system for the skin. Fillers are treatments for deep wrinkles, or lines for smoother skin as well as volumizing and plumping up areas on the face such as hallows under the eyes or cheek.
Chemical Peels can reduce fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, scars, age spots, and other signs of premature aging.
DiamondTip™ Microdermabrasion gently and painlessly exfoliates your skin while vacuum suction removes the crystals with the dead skin cells. It revitalizes your skin’s appearance, promotes production of new cells in the deepest skin layers, cleanses pores, and stimulates collagen.
There are a wide variety of Laser and/or Light Treatments such as eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation, ReFirme/Sublime Skin Tightening, or FotoFacial that offer everything, from those that stimulate collagen to replenish itself improving skin tone, to those that encourage the elastic fibers to tighten, resulting in vibrant skin.
Treatments can soften the appearance of wrinkles, giving youthful-looking skin. Some also kill acne-causing bacteria, healing blemishes and preventing future eruptions. We have applied our quality professional skills in choosing only the latest in technology, offering the finest results.
