What Age Should You Start Botox?

By | BOTOX®, Injectables | No Comments
Botox injections are usually associated with people entering or firmly within middle age. However, the concept of “baby Botox” has grown in popularity over the last few years. This is the idea that undergoing small doses of Botox in your twenties can help prevent aging and prolong the need for full doses. So, what age should you start Botox? The answer to this question will likely be different for everyone. Some people simply begin showing their age sooner than others and may benefit from starting Botox injections sooner. Also, there are uses of Botox that are not purely cosmetic or meant to treat aging such as treating migraines, TMJ, and the Botox lip flip. All of these uses can benefit adults of any age. Botox is approved for adults 18 and above. Thus, nearly any adult can get Botox if they are a good candidate. If you are not showing many signs of aging, you may not need Botox injections yet. Many patients, even those who start anti-aging Botox at a younger age, rarely begin regular injections before the age of 25. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.

3 Benefits Of IPL Treatments

By | Nonsurgical, IPL Photorejuvenation, Skin | No Comments
IPL—or intense pulsed light—treatment is one of the oldest light-based skin procedures available. While newer lasers have replaced it for certain applications such as laser hair removal, IPL still remains a frontline treatment for many ailments and concerns. Let’s look at three of the benefits of IPL treatments.

#1: Reduces Redness From Rosacea

Rosacea is a type of benign redness and warmth on the cheeks and occasionally other parts of the face. There often is not one identifiable cause and due to this, it can be frustratingly difficult to treat. IPL is known to significantly reduce rosacea redness as well as flare-ups. However, it is not a cure and touch-up treatments are necessary to help maintain results.

#2: Targets Unwanted Red & Brown Spots

Most lasers emit one wavelength at a time to address a specific concern. An IPL laser is a form of light treatment known as broadband light which emits more than one wavelength. This allows IPL to treat two colors of discoloration of the skin—red and brown. Thus, it is one of the most effective treatments for sun damage.

#3: Treats Spider Veins

Spider veins can become visible for a variety of reasons including aging, sun damage, and general thinning of the skin. Red spider veins respond well to IPL treatment and the treated veins should not become visible again. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.

How Painful Is An Arm Lift?

An arm lift surgery—also known as a brachioplasty—removes extra skin and fat from the arms. Often performed on people who have experienced major weight loss or seen extensive skin sagging due to aging, an arm lift can help restore youthful and proportionate looking arms. Let’s look into a frequently asked question, “How painful is an arm lift?” Arm lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Thus, patients do not feel anything during the procedure itself. Afterward, there is some level of expected post-operative pain and discomfort. Dr. Jonov will prescribe pain medication to help make your recovery easier and less painful. Overall, patients find an arm lift recovery bearable. Major pain should subside within a week, usually sooner. Occasional discomfort and pain are normal for a few weeks as you continue to heal, but it is typically managed with Tylenol. Patients often return to work in about one to two weeks.

Do Lip Fillers Damage Your Lips?

  As one of the top cosmetic procedures of the past decade, people have many questions about lip filler injections. From which is better between Juvederm and Restylane to the risks of the procedure, patients want to know as much as possible before undergoing lip filler injections. At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, we foster an environment of transparency and patient education. Thus, we do our best to answer all questions they may have. One question patients sometimes ask is, “Do lip fillers damage your lips?”   Lip fillers—when administered properly and with hyaluronic acid fillers—are unlikely to cause damage to your lips. The needle pricks will heal like any other needle poke on your body. Thus, most of the time, there is no scarring and the lips will return to normal once the filler dissolves.    In the cases where fillers do cause damage to the lips, there are usually predictable factors. First, if the patient routinely overfilled their lips for a long period of time, this may cause some stretching of the area or even wrinkling. This is quite rare, but possible. Next, an inexperienced or unqualified provider is more likely to cause damage to the lips due to poor quality supplies, bad technique, or use of inauthentic fillers.   Finally, while less common now, some people underwent silicone lip injections that used industrial grade silicone. This was one of the top causes of lip damage from fillers for years. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.

Can A Mammogram Rupture An Implant?

  Breast implants remain one of the most popular medical devices placed every year. The number of people undergoing breast augmentation surgery continues to rise. Thus, as more people seek out the surgery, they come to The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery with questions. Obviously, patients seeking breast implants want to avoid rupture. Therefore, a question Dr. Jonov is hearing more is, “Can a mammogram rupture an implant?”   No, a mammogram should not rupture a breast implant. You should tell the provider administering your mammogram about your implants so that they can ensure they get a good reading of all of your breast tissue. However, it is extremely unlikely that your mammogram will affect your implants at all.    If you have exceptionally old breast implants (well over ten years old), there may be a slightly higher chance. However, the amount of force and trauma it takes to rupture an intact breast implant is simply not present when undergoing a mammogram. Plastic surgeons advise patients to continue mammograms as normal after getting breast implants.   If you have severe concerns, you may be able to undergo a gentler breast ultrasound. Still, patients do not have anything to worry about when getting a mammogram with breast implants. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.
