Tags: Dermal Fillers   anti-aging  

One of the top concerns for people is aging and sun-damaged skin. The older a patient gets, the less elastic the skin becomes, making dermal fillerswrinkles and lines more visible. Dermal fillers are a non-surgical solution to this problem. Find out how Dr. Barbara Preussner at For a New You in Holliston, MA can improve the appearance of aging skin using dermal fillers.

What Are Dermal Fillers?
A filler is a substance that is injected into the dermal layer of the skin to make it look fuller and youthful. Fillers are commonly made of natural agents like calcium and hyaluronic acid and are more commonly known by their brand names (i.e. Juvederm). When injected into the skin, it fills in places that have less volume due to the aging process and exposure to the sun. 

A Fix for Aging Skin
The more the skin ages and the more it is exposed to harmful UV rays, the deeper lines can become. Dermal fillers can rejuvenate the look of the skin in as little as a couple of weeks and the effects can last up to 18 months before you need another treatment. Here are a few common problems your Holliston skin specialist can address with fillers:

- Wrinkles around the face.
- Marionette and laugh lines.
- Crow’s feet around the eyes.
- Thin lips and lip lines.

What to Expect at Your Filler Appointment
You won't have to spend a lot of time in the office to get better-looking skin with dermal fillers. First, you’ll discuss your concerns with a specialist, including any past treatments you’ve had and areas of the face that you want to fill in. Next, you’ll lay back and receive the targeted injections (a light anesthetic will be administered). The procedure only takes about 15 minutes, so you can do it on your lunch hour.

Better Skin with Fillers
You can improve the look of your face by years with a few dermal sessions at For a New You in Holliston, MA, a medical aesthetics and laser treatment spa. Call (508) 429-1006 today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Barbara Preussner and her friendly staff.

Find out why platelet rich plasma is so important for healing damaged tissue and improving your appearance.

As we get older we lose collagen, which affects the elasticity of our skin. Skin that was once firm and taut is now loose and saggy. You prpmay start to notice fine lines around your mouth or eyes. Dark circles or under eye puffiness may be a common occurrence. If this sounds like the skin issues you are currently dealing with, then Dr. Barbara Preussner in Holliston, MA has the answers through the science of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).

What is PRP?

Our bodies naturally create PRP. When blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge it is able to separate the different components that make up your blood. So you’ll find that red and white blood cells are completely separated from platelets and plasma. Once blood goes through centrifuge the plasma has more platelets than it normally would. This is PRP.

How can it improve my skin?

If you remember back to your high school biology class when the teacher was talking about platelets then you may remember that these cells found in the blood actually help tissue heal and grow new cells. When PRP is injected into the skin it helps to stimulate and reformulate collagen in your skin to repair damaged tissue and produce results that smooth away wrinkles and lines and create an even and more younger-looking tone.

What should I expect when I get Platelet Rich Plasma treatment in Holliston?

Just as we mentioned above, in order to collect PRP we will have to take a small blood sample. While the blood sample is prepared we will prep your skin for treatment. The actual   injections only take a few minutes and only cause mild discomfort while being administered. There is also no recovery time after your treatment.

You may notice minor swelling, redness or bruising near the injection sites that will heal within a couple days. And since PRP is collected from your own blood you won’t have to worry about any side effects.

When will I see results?

You will start to see the effects of PRP within three to four weeks after your first treatment. You will also see that your results will continue to improve with time. Sometimes multiple sessions are encouraged to achieve the best results. We will be able to sit down and determine how many treatment sessions you will need based on your treatment goals.

There are so many ways that For a New You in Holliston, MA can revive your skin and breathe new life back into it. If you want to find out if PRP treatment is right for you then schedule a visit to our office today!

Tags: Kybella   double chin  

Do you like what you see when you look in the mirror? A double chin can linger long after you've lost weight, but that doesn't mean youkybella have to live with a layer of fat under your chin. Dr. Barbara Preussner explains how Kybella, an innovative new treatment, can help you get rid of your double chin.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella injections destroy the membranes of your fat cells. Once the membranes break apart, the contents of the cells spill out and are absorbed by your body. The cells are gone forever and so is the fat after you receive your Kybella treatment. No harmful chemicals are used in Kybella injections. The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a natural body acid that helps break down and absorb fat.

Does Kybella really work?

Seventy-five percent of people who receive Kybella injections are extremely satisfied with the results of their treatments. In the past, liposuction was one of the few options to remove fat under the chin. Although liposuction is effective, it is an invasive procedure and can cause infections, numbness, scarring and even dangerous fat embolisms. Since your skin is only pierced with a small needle during Kybella treatments, you won't have to worry about any of these problems. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved Kybella as a safe alternative to traditional fat removal treatments.

What is the Kybella treatment process in Holliston like?

Before treatment begins, your doctor draws a grid of dots under your chin. The grids help guide her when she gives you the injections. Although you might notice some slight stinging during treatment, Kybella injections aren't usually painful. You'll need two to six treatments to experience the full benefits of Kybella.

After your injections, your skin may be red and swollen and some minor bruising can occur. In a few days, you won't even be able to tell that you received injections, and as your body begins to absorb the fat, you'll notice a more chiseled jaw line.

Say goodbye to your double chin with Kybella treatments. Call Dr. Preussner at For a New You in Holliston, MA to schedule your appointment.
