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.

Alicia Keys and the No Makeup Movement – Skincare Methods for the No-Makeup Look

abadir-no-makeup

When Alicia Keys graced the red carpet at the BET Awards for the first time without makeup in June, she sparked a hurricane of mixed responses. Some people threw a barrage of negative comments while others expressed many encouraging words to the 15-time Grammy award winner. They even branded her as a woman of courage for defying the social norm.

Now, many women are mirroring the Fallin’ singer and joining in the No-Makeup Movement. If you’re having second thoughts on jumping on the bandwagon due to dull skin, don’t worry. All you need to do is just take your skincare regimen up a notch so your face can look glowing without any makeup.

Here are some skincare methods you can try to give you that healthy, glowing face and slay the literally no-makeup look with confidence.

  1. Clean your face regularly

Dirt buildup can enlarge pores and cause the skin to breakout so keeping your skin clean can make a difference. However, instead of using harsh cleansers, use a gentle cleanser to wash your face. It also helps to exfoliate your face to rid it of any buildup of dead skin cells, dirt, blackheads, and whiteheads. Regular cleansing and exfoliating of the skin can make your face look glowing.

  1. Keep your skin well moisturized

Although this sounds counterintuitive for someone who has oily skin, moisturizing can actually help keep excess oil production at bay. The reason is if you skip moisturizers, your skin will dry out. This will lead to more oil production and cause pimple breakouts.  In searching for moisturizers, choose the kind that will not clog the pores. Consult with Dr. Abadir to find out what kind of moisturizer is best for your skin.

  1. Protect your skin

Sun exposure is one of the leading causes of wrinkles. Therefore, it makes perfect sense to put on sunscreen before you head out. Even if the sun isn’t shining, it’s still best to apply sunscreen to ensure that no UV rays can penetrate your skin.

  1. Take advantage of cosmetic dermatology treatments

If acne scarring or uneven skin tone is keeping you from trying the no-makeup look, you might want to try cosmetic dermatology treatments first. Chemical peels, laser resurfacing, microdermabrasion and even photo-facials can rejuvenate your skin and enhance its appearance so you can look naturally flawless even if you don’t wear makeup.

The No-Makeup Movement is gaining traction as more women embrace their natural beauty. If you want to join, do it with confidence by taking care of your skin first. Consult today at Abadir Associates on how to rejuvenate your skin.

My Hands Look So Old. What Are My Options?

Are your hands betraying your true age? How dare they! The delicate skin on the hands is one of the first areas to show significant signs of aging. Unlike the face, the hands are often forgotten when it comes to sun protection and other cosmetic treatments. If you don’t want your hands giving away your secret, you need to give them a little TLC to rejuvenate their appearance. Otherwise, you are going to have granny hands long before you deserve them.

Many of your favorite cosmetic treatments for the face can be used on the hands. Come in for a consultation to learn about your options, or call and schedule one of these rejuvenating treatments today.

Dermal Fillers – Not Just for the Face

If you have visible veins or prominent bones on the hands, dermal fillers may the solution. These injectable fillers can restore youthful volume to the hands. We offer all of the major injectable fillers and will help you choose the best options for your situation. Results last for several months or longer (depending on the filler used) and many fillers require no downtime. In addition to temporary dermal fillers, we offer some permanent filler options for patients desiring lasting results.

Chemical Peels – Out with the Old, In with Beautiful Hands

Slough off old, dead skin and reveal the fresh, new skin underneath. A few days after your chemical peel, you’ll begin to see old skin peel off and fresh, new skin appear. 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.

Laser Resurfacing- Tighten, Smooth, and Rejuvenate

You’ve seen the dramatic results that laser skin resurfacing can provide on the face. Enjoy these same dramatic changes on your hands. Laser resurfacing can tighten loose skin, fade sun damage, and smooth lines and wrinkles.

Thermage – Loose Skin No More

Thermage is one of our favorite solutions for loose skin. This powerful treatment helps to fight sagging skin from within by rebuilding the collagen matrix. By reinforcing the structure of the skin, Thermage can tighten and smooth aging skin. We like to pair Thermage with dermal fillers for dramatic hand rejuvenation results.
