4 Ways to Looking Younger in 2015

January 9, 2015 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Cosmetic Procedures, Health News

beautiful woman in evening dress wearing diamond earringsNow that 2015 is finally here, it’s time to put your best foot forward and kick it into high gear so that you look your absolute best.

GET ENOUGH SLEEP
Sleep does a body good. Not only will you feel better, a good night’s rest will leave you with less darkness and puffiness under your eyes and more evenly toned skin that looks fresh come morning. A good night’s sleep can also prevent unnecessary eating. Try to establish a set bedtime every night and never fall asleep with the television on.

 EXFOLIATE ON A REGULAR BASIS
Dead skin does nothing for your complexion. In fact, it makes your skin look lackluster and dull and can even make your makeup look muddy. The easiest way to get rid of pore-clogging dead skin is by exfoliating regularly with an exfoliator that’s compatible with your skin type. Treat your skin to the professional version, such as a microdermabrasion or light chemical peel, every four to six weeks.

HYDRATE INSIDE AND OUT
When your body is void of water, your skin lacks the moisture it needs to look plump and healthy. Hydration is one of the easiest ways to look instantly younger and better—and it’s simple to do. To properly hydrate your body, make sure you drink at least eight glasses of water per day. To keep your skin looking healthy and full, apply moisturizer both day and night.

TAKE A TRIP TO THE DOCTOR
For stubborn lines and wrinkles that require a little extra help, nothing does the job quite like injectables. Botox, Dysport and Xeomin work wonders on getting rid of hard-to-erase lines and wrinkles caused by smiling, laughing and squinting (think those that live around your eyes, between your brows and on your forehead), whereas hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane, Perlane and Belotero can fill in hollows, wrinkles and folds for a more rejuvenated look. Collagen stimulating fillers such as Radiesse are excellent for restoring volume to the cheeks and also last longer than the hyaluronic acid fillers (about one year). Platelet rich plasma (PRP) such as Selphyl, uses your own platelets to “fertilize” the skin with your own growth factors. This “all-natural” treatment restores elasticity and makes you glow! For a long lasting result, fat transfer is an excellent, all natural way to restore youthful volume.



8 Surprising Ways You’re Showing Your Age

April 8, 2014 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Celebrity Love, Cosmetic Procedures

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.

Around the Upper + Lower Eye Sockets
The majority of fat in the face is in the cheeks, and as these pockets deflate, a depression forms from the inner corner of the eyes straight downward (called a tear trough or hollow). The appearance of hollows is related to loss of fat and bone expansion. Since the same amount of tissue is occupying a larger volume, the result is that the eyes look hollow. Sometimes, the fat protrudes, creating a bag.  Adding a hyaluronic acid filler or fat restores volume, making the eyes the focus of the face.

Around the Brows  
A loss of fat and fullness in the brows coupled with lines and wrinkles between the brows and on the forehead can create a saggy brow and hooding on the upper lids. Fillers and fat are the most common ways to fix the problem. Just a little bit of volume (using a filler like Restylane) helps, and it is even more dramatic when combined with a neuromodulator (Dysport, Botox or Xeomin) for an overall rejuvenating effect. The combination of fillers (injectables or fat micro-grafts) plus a neuromodulator produces a better result than either one alone.

At the Temples 
You wouldn’t think of the temples as an area of concern but they are. As fat diminishes from the temples, they become sunken and appear narrow. Hollow temples can call unwanted attention to the cheeks. Filler such as Restylane, Perlane and Radiesse, used to gently, soften the area for a more youthful look. Fat micrografts are a good alternative and give a more permanent result.

In the Cheeks
The cheek area is one of the first parts of the face where a loss of volume is noticeable. As the fat in the cheeks begins to descend, it creates nasolabial folds (smile lines) around the mouth and a flattened look in the cheeks, making you look “tired”. To correct the folds and the cheeks, the natural volume needs to be restored, using either injectable fillers or fat micro-grafts, for a refreshed, natural look.

In the Lips 
The lips are made of collagen, oil and tissue—not fat—but they too experience the effects of volume loss as they start to thin out. While fillers or fat can help to reinstate plumpness in the lips, the surrounding lines need to be softened with either laser resurfacing or a combination of Botox, Dysport or Xeomin and fillers (I prefer Restylane and Belotero). 

At The Corners of the Nose Down Toward the Mouth 
As the fat in the cheeks begins to fall, there is less support for the skin around the mouth, causing folds to develop in the area where the end of the nose and the lips meet.

On the Jawline
The jaw area loses definition with time and the natural contours become boxy and saggy. Volume loss in the jaw area usually comes along with a lack of structure in the cheeks. Injections of hyaluronic acids, Radiesse or fat can all help reshape and revolumize the area.

The Skin Smoother
Crystal free DiamondTip™  Microdermabrasion removes the topmost layer of skin, delivering optimum exfoliation for softer, smoother, supple and vibrant skin. This is accomplished by gently abrading the skin with a variety of stainless steel tips imbedded with laser cut diamond chips, while using suction to remove the dead skin cells and stimulate collagen production.

Similar to microdermabrasion, the SilkPeel™ Dermalinfusion™ System combines non–invasive exfoliation with deep delivery of patient–specific solutions directly to the skin without the use of crystal or other chemical exfoliants. These serums are infused deep into the skin where they are most effective, deeply delivering the vitamins, antioxidants, and other therapeutic ingredients that your skin needs most.



9 Top Cosmetic Treatments for Aging Skin

November 20, 2013 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Cosmetic Procedures, Health News

This article is based on a recent one in US News and World Report.

Battling the clocksplit face age
No one likes looking older…which is why we spend billions of dollars every year on over-the-counter products, prescription creams and fillers, and, most drastically, cosmetic surgery. Do any of these actually work to reduce the signs of aging? In many cases, yes – at least temporarily. But given the not-inconsiderable costs, it’s important to be smart in your choices.

Aesthetic physicians can prescribe skin creams and perform laser skin-resurfacing and chemical peels, and they can administer injections. Surgical procedures, meantime, can be performed by cosmetic and plastic surgeons. When you pick a doctor, ask how often and how frequently he or she performs the procedure that you’re having (weekly is better than monthly.

Here is a quick guide to some of the most popular treatments and procedures.

1.Retinoid creams
A  host of over-the-counter products claim to help fight wrinkles.  One option: topical retinoid (derived from vitamin A) creams; look for retinol in the ingredient list.  They are proven to get rid of wrinkles that you already have. We love our Night Defense Cream, which comes in 3 strengths, suitable for all skin types. A stronger  prescription strength version is Retin-A.

2. Over-the-counter peptide creams
Creams containing peptides—short snippets of linked amino acids—can be useful for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, but they haven’t been shown to work as well as retinoids. As skin ages, it loses collagen and becomes wrinkled and thin; creams containing peptides are supposed to encourage the skin to make new collagen. Our favorite peptide boost is Daily Cocktail, which gives a one-two punch!

3. Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion uses a very hard diamond-tipped wand to slough off cells from the top layer of the skin and encourage new skin growth. The procedure is usually quite comfortable, doesn’t require an anesthetic or recovery period, and the skin heals quickly. But you may require multiple procedures spaced a few weeks apart. A recent study found that a rougher buffing of the skin is better than a lighter touch.  You will be left with ultra-smooth, polished and glowing skin.

4. Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser resurfacing uses high-intensity light to zap and improve the look of wrinkles and scars, and to tighten loose skin. The effect of your treatment and recovery time vary. We use either the eMatrix system which uses fractionated Radio Frequency, and requires little to no downtime and 3 – 4 treatments, and also the CO2RE fractional CO2 laser, which requires 3 – 5 days of downtime, but only one treatment.

These treatments can be tailored to specific needs and  can be superficial or intermediate and deep. Depending on which treatment and how aggressive, you may see redness from one day to two weeks. The benefits of laser resurfacing usually last between two and five years, however,  if you smoke or don’t use sunscreen, it’s likely to be on the shorter end of that spectrum.

5. Chemical Peels
Used to address mild acne scars, age spots, dull skin texture, skin discoloration, or wrinkles around the eyes or mouth, chemical peels remove the outer layers of the skin and encourage the growth of new, smoother, more evenly colored skin. Depending on the peel’s intensity—which can range from superficial to medium to deep—it may cause reddening and peeling that can last up to several weeks. Our favorite peel, the Apeele, is a blended mix of several ingredients that safely and effectively addresses many skin concerns. This peel comes in 3 strengths, depending on the specific needs and concerns of each patient. The benefits of superficial and medium depth peels last up to a few months.

6. Botox or Dysport
Injections of the now familiar Botox or of Dysport (our favorite) can relax tiny facial muscles, smoothing out the appearance of lines or wrinkles. The cost of Dysport or Botox will vary depending on how many units are needed. The effects of injections may last three to four months, depending on whether you’re a repeat customer. The more injections you’ve previously had, the longer the results last.

7. Filler Injections
Injections of fillers containing hyaluronic acid (Restylane, Perlane, Belotero and Juvederm) and the longer lasting Radiesse, can fill in lines and wrinkles and add volume to skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar which is significantly reduced as we age. Radiesse, a longer lasting filler, acts by stimulating your own collagen formation around tiny synthetic microspheres. Injecting these fillers into wrinkles  and hollows plumps them up and restores lost volume. The effects generally last between six months (hyaluronic acid fillers)  and one year (Radiesse).

8. Cosmetic Surgery
Lifting the skin on the face, neck, eyelids, and forehead can give a tighter appearance. The effects of cosmetic surgery are somewhat permanent. With this type of surgery you are turning the clock back, but we’re not stopping the clock.

9. Try Prevention
If all this sounds extreme (and expensive), remember that you can start immediately to prevent any further damage: Start wearing sunscreen every day. Lifetime exposure to the sun can wreak serious havoc. When many of our patients were younger, they didn’t think that the sun caused any harm. Now, 30 years later, they are really seeing the effects of all that exposure. We advise our patients that without diligent use of mineral based sunscreen daily, our treatments will not  be an effective solution for the long term.



TREATMENTS GET SHARP WITH LUMILASE!

January 21, 2013 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Cosmetic Procedures

INTRO LUMILASE HEADERIf ‘luminosity’ and ‘radiance’ were last year’s beauty buzz words, in 2013 we want treatments that achieve both of these things – faster and with less downtime than ever before. Regular laser treatments will become the new facials as women seek to maintain glowing, even-toned complexions and radical results with minimum side-effects.

Fast track your fix with LumiLase! LumiLase is a treatment that combines home skin-prepping with a mild laser and microdermabrasion to combat stubborn pigment and sun spots.

LumiLase is an innovative new procedure for melasma, brown spots, sun damage and other brown discoloration of the skin, created by cosmetic physician and laser specialist Dr. Susan Stevens Tanne. This highly effective treatment combines microdermabrasion with laser treatment and a tailored skin care regimen.

Microdermabrasion removes the dead skin cell layer, enabling enhanced laser light penetration, while increasing skin cell turnover. Low energy laser treatment then breaks up the brown skin pigment to smaller particles which are then cleared by the body’s natural healing process. A skin care regimen tailored to your skin is used to prevent hyperpigmentation from recurring. The LumiLase three-pronged approach is pain-free and requires no recovery or down time. More aggressive treatments can worsen melasma and hyperpigmentation by irritating and inflaming the skin but LumiLase is so gentle that it does not stimulate pigment production. Patients are amazed to see their condition begin to drastically clear within 2 to 3 weeks after just one treatment, however a series of 3 to 5 treatments is usually recommended for optimal results.

Many patients notice a tremendous difference in the color and texture of their skin after being treated by LumiLase. “Between the laser treatments and the skin care products, my skin color has improved drastically. I couldn’t be happier with the results”, said one of Dr. Tanne’s patients.

LumiLase is one of the most exciting treatments that I offer, because the results are consistently good in almost every patient treated, even those who have tried aggressive laser treatments with long recovery times. LumiLase is available at Dr. Tanne’s private Livingston-based practice, Cosmetic Laser MD.



Four Reasons You Need To Exfoliate

September 21, 2012 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Cosmetic Procedures

There are many benefits of regular exfoliation. As we get older, skin-cell turnover slows down and exofoliating can help speed up the normal sheding cycle. Exfoliating can rid the skin’s dull, outer layer as well as all of the flaws that reside there, like fine lines, dark spots and blemishes. Plus, your skin-care products can better penetrate your skin. Here are four top reasons to exfoliate on a regular basis:

1. Even out skin texture. Exfoliating with microdermabrasion or SilkPeel polishes the skin, leaving it with a softer, smoother texture. It’s like using sandpaper on coarse, unevenly textured wood—step-by-step it becomes smooth.

2. Fight the signs of aging. With age, the skin’s ability to naturally exfoliate slows down. When the skin is laden with dead cells, lines, wrinkles and dryness become more apparent. Removing dead skin reveals fresher, brighter, younger looking skin. Another excellent way to exfoliate is with a gentle chemical peel.

3. Prevent blackheads, whiteheads and breakouts. When the pores get clogged with dead skin and oil gets stuck beneath the surface, pimples can occur.

4. Minimize dark spots. Long after a blemish has healed, a red, brown or purple mark may remain. But each time you exfoliate, you’re removing the top layer of skin to diminish the appearance of discoloration.



3 Non-Surgical Ways to Rejuvenate the Face

September 7, 2012 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Celebrity Love, Cosmetic Procedures, Health News

When you want to look and feel younger, your face is the front and center battleground of that fight. And while there are a few ways to surgically make the face look years younger (facelift, neck lift, even a nose job), many women might not be ready for the commitment or cost of a surgical procedure. If not, there are “best practices” for rejuvenating the face without reaching for the scalpel. Here are some of the best treatments to get a younger face without surgery.

SKINCARE – First and foremost, start with a good skin-care routine. Routine skin care by trained, experienced estheticians is invaluable in producing, improving and monitoring the skin. Let’s face it – beautiful skin always creates a more youthful look. A comprehensive skin-care program that may include professional products and treatments (like microdermabrasion and facial peels) can minimize sun damage, soften fine lines, reduce acne, rehydrate dry skin and brighten dull, aging skin.

INJECTABLES – If you want to take it one step further, a cosmetic physician has more options available to make the face look younger. Before finding the best method for facial rejuvenation, your doctor has to take into account your age. When you are younger, we’re getting rid of wrinkles with products like Dysport, Botox and hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane, Juvéderm and Belotero. For restoring more volume in an aging face my choice filler is Radiesse.

LASERS – Noninvasive radio-frequency treatments, on the right patient, can work wonders. I am a big fan of eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation and Sublime Skin Tightening (the eTwo duo). I also love to treat with FotoFacial RF for color correction and eMatrix for texture improvement with my FotoMatrix combo.  For a more significant result CO2RE Fractional CO2 Resurfacing is my go-to treatment. It is an ablative laser, but it’s not as invasive as making incisions. It is a very effective tool in treating fine lines, irregularities and brown spots. With one treatment, a major improvement can be obtained.



FOUR GREAT WAYS TO ACHIEVE SMOOTHER SKIN

August 31, 2012 / Category: Anti-Aging, Cosmetic Procedures, Health News

Most of us are born with naturally smooth, soft skin, but as we age moisture levels drop, often resulting in dryness and rough, uneven texture. Rough skin may also be the result of sun damage, which depletes collagen and moisture, or a chronic skin condition such as rosacea or eczema that causes bumpiness and inflammation. Whatever the cause, there are a variety of topical treatments and noninvasive procedures that address poor texture at the source.

1. For a Quick Fix:
Try a moisturizer rich in hyaluronic acid to soften and hydrate dry skin.

2. For Results Over Time:
Look for  topical resurfacing products that encourage cell turnover and promote smoother, softer skin such as retinol.

3. For a Dramatic Effect:
In-office resurfacing procedures help achieve a fresh, smooth complexion. Especially effective for sun-damaged skin, fractional resurfacing treatments, like CO2RE Fractional CO2 resurfacing, target the skin’s deeper layers with microscopic laser light, removing damaged skin and allowing fresh, healthy skin to emerge. You may experience redness and swelling for a couple of days post-treatment, but one treatment is all you will usually need. For a gentler and more gradual approach, eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation greatly improves skin texture with virtually no downtime. Three treatments is the usual protocol for this beautiful treatment.

Suitable for all but very sensitive skin, microdermabrasion uses a wand embedded with laser cut diamond chips to polish away the uppermost layer of skin, eliminating roughness as well as fine lines and wrinkles. Chemical peels, another option, are often performed with glycolic, retinoic or alphahydroxy acids; they help smooth out uneven texture by removing the upper layer of skin.

4.For Relief From Redness:
If you experience persistent red blotchiness, dryness or bumpy, rough skin—more than just the occasional dry patch or inflammation—rosacea may be the cause. A chronic inflammatory condition that can develop at any age but is typically found in those older than 30, rosacea is often triggered by alcohol, heat, stress or spicy foods. Irritation, swelling, dryness and inflammation may be signs of a flare-up, and in severe cases, thickening of the skin and red, raised patches, known as plaques, may occur. Rosacea is often rated by grades one to four to indicate its severity, four being the worst.
A series of five or more painless FotoFacial treatments, which use a broad spectrum of light and bi-polar radiofrequency, will repair the deeper layers of skin and reduce redness.



How To Reverse Sun Damage

August 16, 2012 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Cosmetic Procedures, Health News, Special Offers

While sun damage doesn’t happen overnight, it can seem like it visibly affects the skin in a rather short period of time. The more the skin is exposed to the sun, the more the collagen and elastin in the deeper layers is broken down, giving less support to the underlying muscles and the skin’s surface. As a response mechanism, the skin tries to protect itself from the damage, in turn thickening as a means of regeneration.

 

Treat sun-damaged skin at home:

Peptides and vitamin A need to be used consistently to help strengthen the skin and improve its texture. Retinol is key since it sheds the top layer of skin and strengthens it from inside out. Dr. Tanne’s favorite daytime skincare – Daily Cocktail – is bursting with peptides, antioxidants and other key repair ingredients. Her Tanne MD Medical Skin Care Night Defense is her go-to nighttime anti-aging must-have – a retinol serum blended with hydrating hyaluronic acid.

Free radical-fighting ingredients like green tea and vitamins C and E will help safeguard the skin from future damage. Check out Tanne MD Medical  Skin Care T-Power Pads and CE Ferulic Infusion.

Protection and maintenance are vital-once sun-damaged skin has been transformed, you don’t want it to regress. It is recommended to wear a sunscreen with ingredients that contain primarily physical blockers, which provide protection from all UV rays. Check out our absolute favorite, TIZO (titanium/zinc oxide).

Treat sun-damaged skin professionally:

Before starting any in-office treatment for sun damage, Dr. Tanne recommends all patients begin a 3 product at home regimen to pre-treat their skin, including:

  • Brighten Pads -These custom blended pads contain 4% hydroquinone to “shut down” unwanted pigment cells.
  • Night Defense – to help shed these unwanted pigment cells
  • TIZO – to protect your beautiful rejuvenated skin

Laser and light-based treatments, like FotoFacial RF (which combines Intense Pulsed Light with bi-polar Radiofrequency) and both ablative and nonablative resurfacing procedures, work to reinstate the skin. FotoFacial can help eliminate brown and red spots on the face and body. A downtime-free treatment, although several sessions are required, FotoFacial  helps to rejuvenate the skin so that it looks younger and fresher.

Treatments that tackle sun-damaged skin, including chemical peels – our hands down favorite is Apeele – can improve the skin, too. Acid-based peels buffer the skin, making it more sensitive to the sun. We also love DiamondTip™ Microdermabrasion to gently buff away the top layer of dead skin cells, leaving you polished and glowing.

Our new fractional CO2 resurfacing laser, CO2RE, reverses years of sun damage. Unlike older versions of the laser, which used a solid beam, this revolutionary device uses a fractionated beam so there are zones of normal skin, allowing for a shorter recovery period – less than one week, as opposed to two or three. It’s excellent for restoring skin to its natural state without all of the sun damage.  CO2RE gets rid of discoloration while improving the skin’s texture. Instead of employing light, fractional resurfacing lasers create microscopic wounds in the skin-as the skin heals, the sun-damaged areas flake off, and collagen is increased – all in ONE treatment!



WRINKLE FILLERS – The Easiest Way to Erase 10 Years!

November 21, 2011 / Category: Anti-Aging, Cosmetic Procedures

Wrinkle Fillers!
Still… the quickest, easiest way to erase 10 years!

You wake up one morning and look in the mirror. Suddenly, you notice facial lines that just weren’t there yesterday. Are fine lines and wrinkles getting you down? With each and every look in the mirror, do you concentrate on them so much that you would love for them to instantaneously disappear, but you are not sure about your options are or what your cost would be to reduce them?

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.

As people live longer and healthier lives, more and more of them are looking for ways to look young without surgery.  Because the aging process causes the face to lose underlying fat volume and collagen, the skin starts to look deflated and droops, sags, and wrinkles. The result is the permanent tired and aged face look we hate to look at in the mirror.

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

  • Smiling, frowning, squinting and other habitual facial expressions cause wrinkles to become more prominent. · Your facial muscles degrade over time and weaken. · Some muscles weaken sooner than others due to the way one sleeps.
  •  Small muscle contractions are believed to develop frown lines (lines between eyes) and crow’s feet (lines jutting from the corners of the eyes)
  • With age the ability to repair itself weakens.
  • Cells divide more slowly and the inner layer of skin starts to thin, causing wrinkles.
  • Elastin and Collagen fibers loosen and unravel and can no longer spring back to their initial position.
  • The sweat and oil secreting glands atrophy, depriving the skin from water-lipid emulsions, which enhances the skin’s ability to retain moisture.
  • Time, using gravity and stress, continually pull the muscles downward.
  • Smoking is one of the worst causes of wrinkles. · Exposure to the sun can be another culprit.

Options for Wrinkle Reduction.
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin (neuromodulators) treat wrinkles, those little annoyances known as frown lines, worry lines, laugh lines and crow’s feet. These neuromodulators relax the muscles so your wrinkles begin to smooth away.

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.

How long do wrinkle treatments take?
A typical procedure will take about 45 minutes, but the length of time may vary depending on the amount of filler you require.

Will my treatment hurt?
Although most people find the treatment relatively painless, you may notice a slight pricking sensation while the injection is given.  Depending on what area you are correcting, (lips or folds) Dr. Tanne will provide a topical and/or injected numbing medication.

What can I expect following my treatment?
Reactions are rare, but mild side effects may include swelling, tenderness, pain itching and discomfort around the injection site, and minor bruising, which will all disappear within a few days.  You will notice a visible change immediately that will last several months, but depends on several factors including the filler being used, skin structure, lifestyle and age.  Most people choose to repeat treatments every six months, except Radiesse which usually lasts longer.

Please call 973.716.9000 today to schedule a complimentary consultation to find out which injectable filler is right for you.



Mother-in-Law Makeovers Are a Hot Cosmetic Trend

March 18, 2011 / Category: Cosmetic Procedures
Brides and bridesmaids aren’t the only ones who shine in the spotlight at weddings. The mothers of the bride and groom also fall under the scrutiny from wedding guests, high-definition photography and videography. Anyone who has watched TLC’s popular cable show Say Yes to the Dress knows that her child’s wedding day is a huge event in a mother’s life. Mothers of the happy couple put countless hours of time and effort into finding the ideal dress and perfecting their own wedding look.
