What’s New, What’s Cool 2016

The one given in the cosmetic dermatology world is that something new is always coming through. The biggest issues are whether the technology has some scientific backing to it, if the cost of the system is appropriate, whether patients can handle the pain and or downtime – and lastly, if it really works as promised.

At RefinedMD, we only recommend products that really work. Here I talk about what’s new and what’s cool. We are proud to offer the latest and most scientific technology to treat your specific concerns in an office where technology and personal care are one.

CoolSculpting: Freeze your fat away! We now have dozens of delighted clients who have seen their pinchable fat diminish with each treatment. One of only two FDA-approved systems for reliable fat reduction.

Vanquish: The only FDA approved radiofrequency technology for circumferential fat reduction and skin tightening. This is for those who have completed CoolSculpting and looking for further reduction and tightening. Also used for those who prefer a treatment based on controlled warming of the skin rather than freezing. These two systems are very complimentary and often used in a series.

Kybella: The first FDA approved nonsurgical means of getting rid of submental fullness (double chin). We are among the first offices in the US to offer this unique new injectable therapy!

Cellfina: The first predictable safe FDA approved treatment for cellulite with long-term results.

Thermi250: Our newest addition to body sculpting technology at RefinedMD. A gentle and predictable treatment to reduce cellulite, smaller pockets of fat and to tighten lax skin. No downtime!

MicroNeedling/INFINI: Collagen induction therapy with and without radiofrequency. The newest innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars, stretch marks, and other scars as well as overall improvement in the skin’s texture, tone and color. During this procedure, small, sterile, disposable needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. The addition of radiofrequency tightens and stimulates collagen in a robust and predictable manner. Safe on all skin types.

Laser Genesis: A new 1064 Nd/YAG laser technology that uses noninvasive, non-ablative technology to safely, naturally and effectively treat fine lines, wrinkles, diffuse redness, scars and pigmentation. You see consistent results after a series of treatments. By gently heating the upper dermis beneath your skin in 20-minute sessions, it induces collagen synthesis and reduces redness at the same time. Individual treatments are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be dramatic. This is totally safe on all skin types.

Bellafill, Radiesse and Sculptra: our toolbox of collagen stimulators and facial volumizing products that have allowed us to give much better and more natural fill to our volume-depleted patients. Don’t just chase the lines, volumize. Bellafill has just been given FDA approval for improvement of rolling acne scars. Don’t just chase the lines……volumize!
Voluma XC and Restylane Lyft: The only FDA-approved volumizers for the cheeks. For immediate results to bring back that curved edge to your lateral cheeks. Excellent lasting effects for up to two years. This pure cross-linked hyaluronic acid works, and gives immediate results.

Cutera Excel HR: Fast, painless hair removal for all skin types. We have the first system of its kind in the USA! Because of the large super-chilled sapphire treatment tip we can treat any area rapidly and with the least amount of pain of any hair removal system. Because we can easily switch energy and wavelength, we can treat all skin types including dark/black skin and even treat through the recently tanned skin.

Youthful You Package: A collection of minimal downtime treatments we offer to help you keep skin looking as young as you feel. It all starts with a VISIA skin assessment where we can assess the reds, the browns, texture, pores, wrinkles, deep sun damage and select the right monthly treatments for you. This also includes two complimentary SilkPeel Dermal infusions by our highly trained aestheticians.

Ultherapy: The only FDA approved nonsurgical brow, face and neck lift. New indications include around-the-eye rejuvenation, lip rejuvenation and treatment of fine crepey skin around the mouth and on the décolleté. Great results. Only one treatment is needed to create tightening and improvement that lasts for a year or more. There is no downtime. This is technology that is here to stay and is only getting better!

HALO: The world’s first hybrid laser for clearing of stubborn browns and improvement of texture, pore size and tone of skin. Goodbye Fraxel! One or two treatments to start and then once a year.

QX-Max Laser: for fast, safe tattoo removal and to safely treat superficial brown spots and deeper pigment issues such as melasma and congenital nevi of Ota. We are also using this for skin toning and clarification, often called Angel Skin.
