Turn Back Time with These Anti-Aging Procedures!

Now that we’ve “sprung forward” one hour, we want to help you turn back time. Come on in to Abadir Associates for one of these anti-aging procedures. Call today and schedule your treatments.

Injectables- 15 Minutes for a Younger Looking You

Looking younger doesn’t have to take a lot of time. If you have 15-20 minutes, you have time to rejuvenate with injectables. Many injectable treatments require no downtime.
● Botox/Dysport- Smooth away wrinkles caused by muscle movement including crow’s feet, lines between the brows, and forehead creases. Botox and Dysport relax the muscles that cause these wrinkles, allowing them to smooth and fade away. Results last 3-4 months with a single treatment.
● Dermal Fillers- Dermal fillers are a versatile rejuvenation option. We can use them to restore youthful facial volume, to smooth lines and wrinkles, and even to augment the lips. We offer a wide range of fillers, allowing us to customize your treatment to your specific needs and problem areas. Results can last for several months to years, depending on the filler used.

S-Lift- Dramatic Facial Rejuvenation That Lasts

Take years off of your look with an S-Lift, or mini-facelift. This procedure rejuvenates the lower face and neck by repositioning the deep facial tissues. An S-Lift is a popular choice because it allows for very natural looking results with a shorter recovery period and shorter scars than a traditional facelift. Patients find that this procedure is like a reset for their appearance. You’ll continue to age, but you’ll always look younger than you would have without the surgery.

Laser Resurfacing- Discover Your Best Skin

Youthful skin is still possible, but you may need a little help to achieve it. Laser skin resurfacing removes the outermost layer of skin and allowing new skin to grow. We use a non-ablative laser system that removes only the superficial, external layers of skin, leaving the dermis undamaged. This allows for a more comfortable treatment experience with almost no downtime. Laser resurfacing can fade brown spots, smooth lines and wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, and brighten dull skin.
You don’t have to turn back the clock to discover better skin. With our anti-aging treatments you can defy time and look younger, no matter your age. Call us today and schedule your treatments.

Skip a Year of Aging: Top 3 Benefits of Non-Ablative Laser Skin Resurfacing

abadir-3655

Like the rest of us, beautiful, flawless skin that glows no matter the age is something you want to achieve. Yet, no matter how hard you try to take care of your skin, there will always be external factors that contribute to the speed of the aging process.

Sun exposure, free radicals, and other pollutants impede your efforts to achieve clear, youthful skin. Thankfully, a non-surgical solution can aid you in your efforts, and that is by getting a non-ablative laser skin resurfacing procedure.

Skip a Year of Aging

Laser skin resurfacing is an effective option for the treatment of facial wrinkles. The hallmark of non-ablative laser skin resurfacing is it improves the appearance of the skin without injuring the outer layer of the skin. It works by removing the skin’s superficial external layers only, leaving the deep layers intact. When the light heats the water found in the skin, it helps to tighten and clean it.  This leads to a natural shedding process, wherein dead skin peels off on its own. Minimal redness can occur post-treatment and can be covered with make-up.

Why Consider Laser Skin Resurfacing?

There are many options for laser skin resurfacing. At Abadir Associates, though, we use a StarLux 1540 non-ablative laser system to make your skin rejuvenation treatment a successful and comfortable one. Unlike the conventional full-face laser skin rejuvenation technique, the following factors are what make non-ablative laser skin resurfacing more appealing.

  • Stimulates collagen production

The heat that the laser generates aids in the promotion of collagen and elastin production, which leads to skin tightening. As collagen and elastin are building blocks that help the skin return to its smooth, soft, and glowing state, the result is a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

In addition to that, the increase of collagen production will keep your skin supple and strong. It’ll maintain the elasticity of your skin and protect the skin cells. It will also improve the health of your hair and nails, which are appendages of the skin.

  • Minimal recovery time

Although a non-ablative laser skin resurfacing procedure requires more treatment sessions than the harsh ablative laser therapies, it doesn’t require downtime. Also, the entire process is very comfortable.

  • Long-Term Effects

Due to the stimulation of collagen production, the natural aging process is curbed temporarily. For the first round of treatments, you will need at least three treatments to see beautiful results. After the initial treatment, you can maintain your results with at least one or two treatments annually.

With non-ablative laser skin resurfacing, it’s possible to skip one year of aging. If you’re ready to transform your look for 2017, consult with our top surgeons at Abadir Associates. Schedule a consultation today.

Give the Gift of Better Skin this Holiday Season! Buy a Skin Treatment for Your Favorite Person

abadir-126

Gift giving season is coming. Have you thought of a gift for your favorite? How about giving them the gift of beautiful skin? This may sound unusual, but it can be the perfect gift this holiday season, partly due to the cool weather, which is ideal for several aesthetic skin treatments.

Here are some skin treatment gifts you can give to that special person based on his or her needs:

For Anti-Aging

Fine lines, deep creases and wrinkles can make makeup application a chore. They can also affect a person’s self-esteem. Regardless of the recipient’s reason for wanting to beat the signs of aging, chemical peels can be a great help. In fact, these kinds of treatments are considered an all-in-one because they can exfoliate dead skin cells, inhibit dead cell buildup, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, correct uneven skin tone, and treat sun-damaged skin. Wow, that’s a lot of power packed into one procedure!

For Acne Scars

Acne scars can be the bane to a person’s life, leading to frustrations and low self-confidence. If your favorite person is suffering from acne scars, dermabrasion can drastically downsize them. Dermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that removes the skin’s top layers to improve skin texture. Dermabrasion can also remove rosacea and tattoo scars, wrinkles, age spots and even skin lesions. With the various treatments it offers, dermabrasion is definitely perfect as a holiday gift.

For Skin Imperfections

Brown spots, broken capillaries in the face, rosacea, facial veins, sun spots – all these can be removed effectively and safely with photo facials. Not only do they reduce the visibility of many skin imperfections, photo facials can also improve the complexion, making it appear youthful and glowing.

For Sagging Skin

Loss of volume and elasticity can cause the skin to sag and make wrinkles more visible to the naked eye. Laser resurfacing can do wonders to the skin. Not only will it tighten the skin, it can also rejuvenate dull-looking skin. So if you’re wondering what to give to your special someone, laser resurfacing will be a welcome treat.

For Dull Skin

Looking for a skin treatment that can deliver instant results without the need for downtime for your favorite person? Hydrafacial is one that should be on your radar. It’s an all-in-one skincare treatment that can detoxify, rejuvenate and protect the skin. So it’s definitely perfect as a special holiday present.

This holiday season, make your gift extra special by giving your favorite person the gift of beautiful skin. If you have any questions about our line of skincare treatments, contact Abadir Associates today.

Get a Fresh Face for Your Fall Wedding with these Skincare Procedures

skin-rejuvenationSo you’re getting married, and you want every small detail of your wedding picture perfect: the dress, the venue, hair and makeup. On your big day, you want to be the beautiful, glowing bride, and with the right skin rejuvenation techniques you can be. You need something fast and effective, but gentle enough that it doesn’t take up too much of your time; lucky for you, Abadir Associates has everything you need for a pre-wedding skincare treatment and rejuvenation session.

Hydrafacial

The Hydrafacial is more than a procedure; it’s a ritual. Using non-invasive techniques, HydraFacial combines exfoliation, acid peels, suction to remove debris, and multiple anti-aging serums to rejuvenate the skin. Hydrafacial does everything from reducing fine lines, wrinkles, redness, pore size, hyperpigmentation, to healing oily and acne-ridden skin. The best part? It only takes about 30 minutes to complete.

Thermage

Thermage is another non-invasive procedure, but this time it uses radiofrequency waves to tighten the skin. The radiofrequency waves activates collagen production in the skin to make the skin firmer and more youthful. If you want to rejuvenate more than just your face, Thermage also works great for your hands, body and neck. Thermage can tighten looser skin on the body after weight loss and also reduce jowls and sagging neck skin.

Dermaplaning

Do you have really sensitive skin? Do you also want to get rid of some unsightly peach fuzz before the wedding pictures? Try dermaplaning, an exfoliation technique that gently scrapes the skin to make skin smoother, reduce redness, and hyperpigmentation. It also has the added bonus of helping you absorb skin care products faster. Because the treatment is so gentle, there’s no downtime, and it only takes a few minutes!

Chemical Peel

Chemical peels are acids that are applied to the face to exfoliate dead skin, imperfections, and dirt and oil. You can really customize your treatment: you can pair the chemical peel with dermaplaning and different kinds of facials. If your appointment is close to your wedding day, you can opt for a milder peel for a shorter recovery time.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing has been used for decades for skin rejuvenation—it works by removing the most superficial layer of skin to reveal fresher, younger looking skin underneath. Laser skin resurfacing also helps with dull skin, spider veins, acne scars, stretch marks and sagging skin—all with almost no downtime.

At Abadir Associates, you’ll work with some of the most renowned dermatologists in the world. On your big day, you need someone you can really trust, so contact Abadir Associates now to get a consultation on facial rejuvenation procedures before your big day.

Your skin will look tighter, smoother, and softer. Chemical peels can be performed on a maintenance basis to ensure that your hands always look their best.

IPL – Say Goodbye to Sun Damaged Skin

For patients with sun damage, IPL is one of the best available treatment options. Also called photo-rejuvenation, IPL can clear up sun damage and fade sun and age spots. IPL is safe and effective. Best of all, it requires no downtime.
