PUBLISHED FROM THE AESTHETIC ACADEMY

Dr. Janee Steinberg wins 2011 National Award for the Best Non Surgical Body Enhancement  

During the annual Aesthetic Academy (TAA) aesthetic practice development seminar held at the EPIC Hotel in Miami, FL, the day-long seminar culminated with the first ever Aesthetic Awards Miami. Focusing on the top aesthetic providers in South Florida, these prestigious awards honor the best results in the top 5 categories in the field of aesthetic medicine, including non-surgical and surgical enhancement for the face and body.

Best Non-Surgical Body Contouring Award was conferred to board certified Fort Lauderdale dermatologist Dr. Janee Steinberg of Advanced Cosmetic Laser Center for her results with the Body Thermage. With over 30 years of experience in the field of dermatology, Dr. Steinberg is a member of many distinguished dermatological societies and a fellow of several academies, including the American Academy of Dermatology.

One of the most distressing signs of aging, skin laxity can occur anywhere - on the face and on the body. As in the case in which won Dr. Steinberg the award, the patient first contacted her physician regarding the laxity on the inner and front of her thighs as well as the crepey appearance of the skin. While the patient was an active and healthy individual, she felt that the looseness of skin in that particular area contributed to the appearance of cellulite.

While there have been many skin tightening and cellulite reduction devices that have flooded the market, Dr. Steinberg chose the body thermage to treat her patient due to the patient's underlying issue, skin laxity. "We chose Thermage to treat the patient because we feel it is the best modality for targeting tissue tightening," describes Dr. Steinberg, "Although the legs had the appearance of cellulite, the problem was more from the draping of the tissue as opposed to irregular fat deposits found in true cellulite."

An ideal candidate for the procedure, the patient had an active and healthy lifestyle, exhibited only mild sun-damage and was seeking a non-surgical solution to her lax skin. Unlike much more invasive surgical procedures such as a thigh lift or body lift, Body Thermage is completely non-surgical and there are no incisions or excision of extra skin.

Similar to why physicians choose Thermage to treat the face for skin laxity, as we age, collagen degrades faster than the body can replenish - causing skin to sag and wrinkle. Using radiofrequency (RF) to encourage collagen re-growth, Thermage may tighten and lift lax skin without ever having to go under the knife. FDA approved in 2002 for treatment of facial wrinkles and rhytids, Thermage received clearance for treatment on the body in 2006.

According to Dr. Steinberg, the patient received one treatment of Thermage using the 16cm body tip 400 pulses to address the loose skin on the patient's thighs. "The entire treatment takes approximately 75 to 90 minutes," continues Dr. Steinberg, "While the patient began to see results in about 8 weeks, the final result was noted 4 months from the initial treatment date."

Since Body Thermage encourages the body to produce its own natural collagen, final results are not available immediately. However, unlike surgical procedures, Body Thermage may offer a significant modicum of skin tightening without any downtime, scarring, and minimal swelling and bruising.

Dr. Steinberg remarks, "In the end, our patient was ecstatic with her results! The looseness in her thighs which made her self-conscience about wearing shorts or going to the beach was gone. The Thermage treatment definitely made her more confident in her skin!"  

__________________________________________________________________________

Unlike prior generations, today's young adults are proactive about their health and appearance. They want to look as young as they feel. Our younger, more active patients are having the early signs of aging such as "crow's feet", frown lines and smoker's lines around the lips treated in increasing numbers. They are requesting non-invasive, non-surgical procedures that have little, if any, downtime.

Now, you don't have to miss a thing. A Solution For Beauty Cosmetic and Laser Center in Tamarac and Boca Raton Florida Thermage™, using the Thermacool™ system, for patients in Ft. Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Tamarac, Broward and Palm Beach Counties to gently smooth their fine lines and wrinkles without surgery, so they can resume normal activities immediately.

What is Thermage?

Thermage is one of the latest FDA-approved nonablative procedures for maintaining a youthful appearance. It is not a laser. It is a radio frequency (RF) system. The advanced Thermacool system incorporates a cryogen-cooling spray to protect the skin's outer surface while the RF energy heats and modifies the soft tissues beneath the skin. This causes the collagen to contract and tighten. Each treatment is customized through the system's computer to control the depth and degree of the heating process.


Choosing Thermage

You will want to explain to your physician the level of skin improvement you hope to achieve. The doctor or aesthetician at A Solution For Beauty Cosmetic and Laser Center in Tamarac and Boca Raton Florida will then review your medical history and examine your skin to determine if you are a good candidate for Thermage. Together you can discuss your options, evaluate your expectations and determine the best treatment for you. Photographs may be taken for comparison of your results.

The treatment

Our advanced, computer-controlled Thermacool system gives your physician precise control over the tissue tightening process. The cooling spray maintains the cool skin surface while the RF energy gently heats and modifies the soft, underlying connective tissues. The procedure is rapid and bloodless.

Is Thermage safe?

Yes. Thermage has been improved and refined over years of experience with improved treatment methods and applicators of RF energy. With over 200,000 treatments performed worldwide, the safety record of this procedure has revealed very few adverse or temporary side effects.

Is it painful?

Thermage can be performed without any anesthesia. Some patients may want some oral medication for the heat sensation. When the machine is pulsed, patients feel brief, mild to intense heat in the treatment site followed by the immediate cooling effect of the cryogen spray.

What kind of results can I expect from Thermage at A Solution For Beauty Cosmetic and Laser Center in Tamarac and Boca Raton Florida ?

Facial skin and the skin along the neck can be tightened providing a mild, non-surgical browlift or facelift effect. This treatment is often used for sagging jowls. The tightening effect may be used to firm up loose or sagging tissue in other parts of the body such as the abdomen or legs.

Most patients who have Thermage performed at A Solution For Beauty Cosmetic and Laser Center in Tamarac and Boca Raton Florida see results immediately. However, the results may be gradual over a 3 - 6 month period as the skin tightens and more new collagen is formed. Depending on the area treated, the skin laxity and your desired results, more than one treatment may be required.

How long will Thermage results last?

Treatment results last from 12 - 24 months. Your skin will continue to age as it has in the past and eventually you may wish to have another anti-aging procedure.

Can Thermage be used on the body?

With the development of newer tips for Thermage, it is now possible to treat sagging or dimpled skin in areas like the legs, arms or abdomen. It may be used to even out irregular areas after liposuction. The treatment may take from 1 - 2 hours to treat a large area.

What are the benefits of Thermage over other procedures and surgeries?

  • It is non-invasive. There are no incisions and no tissue damage.
  • A level of control can be achieved that is difficult with other treatments.
  • There is no bleeding or bruising and the risk of scarring is minimal.

What about recovery?

Basically, after our doctor performs Thermage treatments, there is no recovery. You may resume all normal activities immediately. Slight redness may be seen for less than an hour and no more than 24 hours.

The full effect of your treatment develops over a few months following the procedure and can be expected to last for 1 - 3 years. As with any cosmetic procedure, the results can be expected to fade gradually over time, at which time the procedure can be repeated if desired.

Look years younger!
