kybellaDo you have extra fullness underneath your chin?  Having a double chin may make you look older, and it may also affect your self-confidence. There are several reasons you may have a double chin (also known as submental fat), including aging, weight gain, and genetics. People often search for ways to get rid of a double chin, and the good news is that it’s easier than you think. You can eliminate your double chin without surgery with Kybella®.

Is Kybella® Right For You?

Do you just wish that your double chin would simply disappear? Unfortunately, if you have a double chin, it will not go away on its own.  So, how do you know if Kybella® is right for you? 

  • Are you bothered by the fat under your chin?
  • Do you feel that the condition makes you look older?
  • You don’t want surgery.
  • You eat well and exercise, but the submental fat won’t go away.

What Is Kybella ®?

Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the area under your chin. Kybella® treatments take less than 20 minutes, although with prepping the area to inject, you should plan to be in our office for around 45 minutes.   The number of treatments required will vary from person to person and is based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. When you meet with Dr. Feinstein, he will be able to let you know how many sessions you should need, and the injections are given 1 month apart. You may experience redness and swelling at the site, which should subside within two weeks. Once destroyed, those fat cells cannot store or accumulate fat, and after reaching your desired look, you won’t need any additional treatments.

Hello, bathing suit season!  The fun days of summer are just around the corner, and both men and women are looking for smoother skin. In South Florida, it's almost always beach weather, so it's never too soon to start laser hair removal treatments in Delray Beach. Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. because it eliminates and permanently removes all unwanted hair. If you are not happy with shaving daily or frequently waxing, laser hair removal may be a great solution for you.

At Feinstein Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery, we use the Forever Bare BBL™ (from Sciton™) laser which incorporates the latest advancements in cosmetic laser technology.  BBL is actually a brand name for intense pulsed light (IPL). This type of laser produces multiple bursts of lower energy, instead of all at once, to gently remove unwanted hair.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Throughout the years, you may have heard that laser hair removal wasn’t for everyone, but thanks to new laser hair technology, that’s no longer the case. The Sciton laser is both safe and effective for all skin types, including tanned and ethnic skin. Laser hair removal can be performed on the neck/face, arms/underarms, back/chest/shoulders, legs, abdomen, and bikini/Brazilian. However, if you are thinking of undergoing laser hair removal, it is best to avoid waxing or plucking hairs for six weeks prior to treatment.                                                      

How Effective is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal involves using a concentrated beam of light (laser), which is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. The laser will destroy hair follicles and inhibit further hair growth. The length of time required for the office visit and the number of treatments needed will vary, depending on the part of the body being targeted. It typically takes 4 to 6 treatments to be effective, but you will have noticeable results in 2 to 4 treatments. If or when the hair grows back, it will be thinner and with a lighter shade. There’s no downtime, and though you might experience some redness, you can resume your regular activities right away.

Now, more than ever, men want to look younger too!  Yes, guys...Brotox (Botox® for men) is not just for the ladies. This popular treatment is also great for keeping your skin looking younger and refreshed. Women are no longer the only ones seeking anti-aging and facial rejuvenation procedures. The number of men getting Botox® injections to target facial fine lines and wrinkles continues to rise.  The social stigma attached to men getting this popular, minimally invasive treatment is not only fading, it’s just about gone. After all, men want to look their best too! So, why are more men than ever now getting Botox®?

Botox® One of the Most Popular Anti-Aging Treatments

Cosmetic procedures for men are rising nearly across the board, with Botox® leading the way.  Botox® works by blocking nerve impulses and temporarily paralyzing muscle activity targeting fine lines and wrinkles. The injections take around 15 minutes, with little to no downtime, so it is an easy procedure to schedule during a lunch break. So, what can you expect from your treatment?

  • Improved appearance of frown/furrow lines (vertical ‘11’ lines between the brow)
  • Horizontal forehead lines and creases are smoother and more relaxed
  • Improved appearance of crow's feet (the squinting lines on the outside corners of the eyes)

What’s Fueling Men’s Botox Obsession?

Like women, more and more men have a desire for a more youthful appearance, and Botox® is one of the most effective treatments to look younger without having surgery.  Many of our male patients are also interested in Botox® injections for social and professional reasons.  For many men, maintaining a more youthful appearance is crucial for those who work in highly competitive industries. Our male patients come to our office because they trust that our highly skilled doctors will give them the younger, natural look they are seeking.

Frequently Asked Questions

Patients commonly ask, “How much Botox® will I need?” This varies from person to person and each treatment is personalized. However, treatment requirements are different for men and women. Male skin has a different quality and thickness than female skin, which means that men will require larger doses of Botox® than women to get the same effect. Botox® typically lasts 3 to 6 months, and the final results are usually noticed approximately 14 days following treatment.

microneedlingIt’s no secret that as we age, we lose collagen and elasticity in our skin which is what gives our skin strength, and when it begins to disappear, wrinkles begin to appear. We want to introduce you to microneedling in Delray Beach. Think facial rejuvenation and beyond.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure. This method introduces a controlled wound into the skin triggering a release of natural growth factors, new collagen, and elastin. This process causes much less damage to the epidermis than dermal rolling or lasers and other abrasive treatments, which helps to protect the new skin cell growth providing for quicker healing, higher success rates, and longer lasting results.

Benefits of Microneedling

There are many benefits of collagen induction therapy, including reducing the appearance of wrinkles and making your fine lines less noticeable.  It also helps hydrate the skin and makes it firmer, improving your skin’s texture. But there are some more plusses that you may not be aware of, that is, until now.

#1: Targets Scars

Collagen therapy is a great treatment for scars, including acne scars. Studies show that collagen induction therapy is effective in treating these scars. It also works well for treating surgery scars.

#2: Targets Pores & Blackheads

Many people have blackheads or enlarged pores on the face. Those pores can become clogged with dirt and sebum. Did you know that collagen induction therapy will make your pores smaller? Collagen induction therapy actually minimizes pore size and is a great treatment for blackheads, leaving you smoother skin.

#3 Targets Pigmentation

Many of us have experienced sun damage which can lead to sunspots. Collagen therapy can help reverse sun damage, as well as targeting age spots, dark spots, brown spots, and other pigmentation issues.

#4 Targets Stretch Marks

Did you know that it also addresses stretch marks? Whether you've developed stretch marks after giving birth or from weight issues, microneedling can minimize the appearance of those unwanted stretch marks.  

#5 Enhances Product Absorption

Have you ever noticed that after putting on a facial creamer, it seems to just sit there on top of your skin?  Collagen therapy can help enhance the absorption of your skin care products.

Number of Treatments and Results

As you can see, microneedling addresses many different skin concerns. The length of time in which you can expect to see results, along with the number of treatments you will need, depends on the skin issue being targeted, and the severity of your skin condition. We can discuss this in further detail when you come in for your consultation.

laser hair removal in delray beachIsn’t it about time you stop shaving, plucking, waxing, or threading unwanted hair from your body? Consider saving your precious time and money, and step into the light - the world of laser hair removal. It’s no wonder the American Society of Plastic Surgeons listed laser hair removal among the top five cosmetic minimally-invasive procedures performed in 2017. It’s safe and it works. Laser hair removal is the best way to remove unwanted hair for many reasons, which we’re about to reveal to you.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

But first, an explanation of how it works. Laser hair removal treatment involves using a concentrated beam of light (laser light), which is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. This destroys hair follicles enough to inhibit future hair growth. We use Sciton™ lasers, which incorporate the latest advancements in cosmetic laser technology. This type of laser produces multiple bursts to gently remove unwanted hair instead of all at once. This also makes it possible to treat various areas of the body – both big and small. Plus, it’s safe for all skin types and tones, including tanned skin tones. There are many reasons for you to consider coming to Delray Beach for hair laser removal. 

Reason #1: Reduces Hair Growth

If you’re looking for the most effective way to reduce hair growth, laser hair removal fits the bill. It will drastically reduce your hair growth and thanks to new technology, nearly all skin tones/ hair colors can enjoy the benefits of laser hair removal. Most studies show an 80 percent hair growth reduction. Another plus – you don’t have to worry about annoying ingrown hairs.

Reason #2: Fast Treatments

Laser hair removal treatments don’t take very long at all.  The length of time will vary, depending on the target areas. Obviously, removing hair from the back will take longer than removing it from the upper lip.

Reason #3: Minimal Side Effects & No Downtime

While side effects from laser hair removal are minimal and rare, you may experience some redness or swelling at the site. These symptoms typically go away within several hours. There’s no downtime with our laser hair removal, and you can immediately resume your normal activities. It’s the most comfortable laser hair removal treatment on the market.

Reason #4: Works on Many Areas of the Body

Another benefit of laser hair removal is its versatility. It works on various areas of the body. Some of the most common areas include:

  • Face (upper lip, chin)
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Bikini area
  • Back
  • Neck  
  • Shoulders
  • Chest  

Reason #5: Long-Lasting Results

How long does hair removal last?” is an important question to ask.  Results will vary from person to person and are dependent on skin tone, hair type, hair color, and of course the area of the body being treated. But it's typically effective for several months to several years. And if or when your hair grows back, it'll come in much thinner and lighter.

Reason #6: Cost Effective

Think about how much money you normally spend, or the time you allocate for other hair-removal methods. That can easily add up.  Depending on the area being targeted, it normally takes 4 to 6 treatments to be effective, and again, results are long-lasting, all of which saves you time and money.
