Fall into the Holiday Season with Rejuvenation

Explore all our Facial, Body, and Hair Rejuvenation options at the Fall Open House!

Face The Possibilities

Now that most kids are back to school and the leaves are turning autumn colors, the fall season is definitely upon us. With Halloween and holiday festivities approaching, you may be thinking about freshening up your look for the holiday season with a non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatment or using some of that precious time off from work to schedule a more extensive procedure.

This issue of our newsletter offers advice about some of the newest treatments and products available at the Center for Facial and Body Rejuvenation. Because Dr. Elbert Cheng and Dr. Jacqueline Cheng are National Allergan Trainers, our office was one of the very first to offer the newest Allergan dermal fillers, Volbella® and Vollure®, which join the large family of Allergan dermal fillers designed to offer a full range of non-invasive, injectable facial rejuvenation. We are also one of the very few offices to offer Silhouette InstaliftTM, providing patients with a non-surgical skin lifting option. Finally, we are so pleased to introduce one of the latest and best methods of hair rejuvenation for men and women with thinning hair…NeoGraft® Hair Rejuvenation.

With so many different treatments available, a complimentary, private consultation is often the best way for us to develop your personalized treatment plan. You can also learn more about all these options, get answers to your questions, and watch live treatment demonstrations by attending our Fall Open House on October 13th.

This annual event is our way of thanking our current patients and welcoming new patients. The Open House gives you an opportunity to chat with our product and service representatives and both doctors in the practice, plus some other surprise guests! We feature the best pricing on every product, service, and treatment offered at the Center for Facial and Body Rejuvenation during this event. Simply place a nominal deposit at the event and reserve the special pricing through December 31, 2017.

Everyone Will Notice…No One Will Know!

Use the newest dermal fillers to lift, smooth, or plump your way to subtle results that last

Over time, your face changes in many ways. This is part of the normal aging process, but genetics and environmental factors also play a role. You may notice a change in the appearance of your skin, typically in the form of deepening parentheses lines and wrinkles. What may be less obvious is age-related midface volume loss. Your cheeks may flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. You may also develop parentheses lines or static lines that appear when your face is at rest. This happens over time as your skin loses some of the building blocks (hyaluronic acid and collagen) that give the skin its structure. Over time, your lips may lose volume and thin as well. However, many people seek out lip augmentation because they naturally have thin lips and simply desire more fullness.

JUVEDERM® is the #1 selling collection of hyaluronic acid filler in the US.

Each product in the Juvéderm® collection of fillers adds volume to a different area of the face to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, or plump the lips. The results are subtle and long-lasting. The JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers is made from hyaluronic acid (HA). What’s interesting about HA is that it’s a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. Each product in the
JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers is made from a modified form of HA.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC injectable gel instantly adds volume to the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss or augment this area of the face for definition and contouring. JUVÉDERM VOLLURETM XC is injected into the areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur, lasting up to 18 months with optimal treatment.

While JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC adds volume to the lips, smooths vertical lip lines, and can be used to add volume to the delicate under eye area.

To many people, a full head of hair represents attractiveness and desirability both personally and professionally. For this reason, it is vital to understand what effects a hair restoration procedure can have on your daily interactions with people and in all other aspects of your life. Hair restoration should be unnoticeable to all but those you choose to tell.

The facts are that approximately 50 million men and approximately 30 million women suffer from male/female pattern baldness or thinning hair. Many potential patients shy-away from, or are not candidates for, the traditional “strip method” of hair replacement because of the slow recovery time, the loss of feeling at the incision site, the tiny linear scar on the back of the head, or the amount of post-operative pain involved.

After much research, we have chosen to offer the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method utilizing the NeoGraft® Automated Hair Transplantation system. The FUE method of hair transplantation removes individual hair follicles from the scalp in their naturally occurring groupings of about 1to 4 hairs and are then placed in the areas of the scalp where balding has occurred.

There are some very important reasons why Neograft® may be the best option for you. It is the least invasive procedure for hair transplantation available today, and patients who receive the NeoGraft® procedure feel little to no discomfort during the procedure. There are no stitches or staples used in this procedure, and you will have no unsightly linear scar. NeoGraft® offers great flexibility for any hair style of your choice…short or long. This procedure also offers a much shorter recovery time versus traditional methods of hair transplantation. Patients can typically go back to work the next day and have fewer restrictions on their normal daily activities; but the best thing about NeoGraft® procedures are the natural looking results!

The NeoGraft® system is the first and only FDA cleared follicular unit harvesting and implantation system, and the system delivers automation of the FUE technique, the most advanced technique in the hair transplant industry. This revolutionary system uses pneumatic controls to precisely extract complete individual hair follicles which can be immediately transplanted to the selected areas of the scalp. The NeoGraft® automated hair transplantation system is the only complete harvesting system on the market and has the only ‘NO TOUCH’ implantation technology.

Hair Restoration with NeoGraft® technology provides absolute exact harvesting and placement, delivering repeatable results. With NeoGraft’s technology, each follicle is removed individually while the patient is comfortable. A natural looking head of hair is created with this minimally-invasive procedure.

Hair loss can be a very emotional part of the natural aging process, and seeking ways to curb this process used to be a challenge. NeoGraft®’s advanced technology offers a discrete solution to hair loss, allowing patients to achieve natural looking results with no linear scar, minimal downtime and a shorter recovery period. Hair restoration with the NeoGraft® procedure is unnoticeable, making it your secret to tell.

FUE hair transplantation is a very safe, minimally invasive procedure with minimal bleeding and fewer complications than the traditional “strip” method. NeoGraft® procedures are performed with local anesthesia and require no intraveneous or intra-muscular sedation. Recovery time is quick and relatively pain free. We even have financing programs available to help you meet your exact needs and budget.

The NeoGraft® Automated FUE is also a useful procedure to fix visible linear scars from previous “strip” surgeries. FUE can be used to ‘fill in’ or camouflage those old scars by transplanting new follicles into the area.

At the Center for Facial and Body Rejuvenation, we offer a full array of hair rejuvenation options up to, and including, hair transplantation with the Neograft® system. We also carry a full line of topical and oral supplements to stimulate hair growth and offer non-invasive treatment options like hair rejuvenation with PRP treatments designed for use on their own or to augment your Neograft® results.

Call our office today to schedule a complimentary consultation to discuss your hair rejuvenation goals. Let us design a personal hair rejuvenation program to help you meet your goals and budget. Also, don’t forget to stop by and visit with the Neograft® experts at our Fall Open House on Friday, October 13th to ask questions and learn more about our very special introductory pricing .

Great Results for Men or Women

If you think you look tired all of the time, you are not alone. Wrinkles, dark circles, hollowness, and crow’s feet can make you look exhausted when you’re not.
Wrinkles under your eyes can be treated with creams that contain retinoid (vitamin A) and antioxidants. Retinoid increases cell turnover, which stimulates collagen production. The anti-oxidants help prevent the breakdown of collagen. Another minimally invasive option is treatment with Fraxel® laser which targets specific areas and stimulates new collagen production.

Botox® or Dysport® may be injected under the skin to relax the muscles in the face that pull the skin and cause wrinkles like crow’s feet or frown lines between the eyebrows.
For dark circles due to pigmentation irregularities, fillers can be injected to plump the area and reduce the appearance of darkness. Injectable fillers also soften wrinkles and make the skin look tighter in areas like the lids, eyebrows, and crow’s feet. If you have sunken areas or hollowness below the eyes, fat transfer may be the right treatment for you. A small amount of fat is harvested from your body and then injected beneath the skin and muscle of the cheek and lower eyelid to fill in the area.

In addition to injectable fillers, microdermabrasion can provide a fresh and temporary glow to the crow’s feet area. It uses micronized crystals to remove dead cells to smoothen the area.

A permanent option to revitalize the eye area is eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), which can reduce puffiness, sagging skin, and drooping eyelids. Excess fat, muscle, and loose skin are removed, while hiding the incisions in the natural lines and creases of the eyelid. The result is a more wide-eyed appearance with smooth, rejuvenated skin.

Several factors will be considered to determine what cosmetic treatment or procedure is right for you, including age, skin type, ethnic background, and overall health. During your consultation, you and Dr. Cheng will discuss the best plan of action, whether it includes a series of minimally invasive treatments, eyelid surgery, or a combination of procedures. You’ll have that refreshed, younger looking appearance back in no time!

Cosmetic medical techniques have advanced greatly in recent years. Many aspects of facial aging can be addressed with safe and effective procedures that offer little downtime and natural-looking results. While wrinkles, brown spots and lost volume can be treated with existing procedures, until now there has been no minimally invasive way to lift the deeper layers of mid-facial skin.

We are excited to announce that we are now offering Silhouette Instalift™ – the latest facial rejuvenation procedure to lift sagging facial skin. Silhouette Instalift™ is the breakthrough facial rejuvenation procedure you have read about in Town & Country and seen on THE DOCTORS TV Show that lifts sagging facial skin without the need for major surgery, scars or general anesthesia.

Sagging skin is one of the major contributors to an aged and tired appearance. Silhouette Instalift™ is a simple in-office procedure to re-contour your face by lifting the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful appearance.

The patient seen in these before and after photos received her Instalift™ treatment recently in our office. She experienced very little discomfort and enjoyed the result you see here instantly and with no downtime. She was back to her normal routine immediately following the procedure, and her results will continue to get even better over the next few weeks.

Dr. Elbert Cheng and I have received comprehensive training on this breakthrough anti-aging treatment. We can answer all of your questions about the procedure and create a treatment plan to ensure you achieve the natural- looking results you desire.

During a short in-office procedure, we will insert the patented Silhouette InstaLift sutures to lift the deeper layers of the skin in your mid-face or cheek area. The treatment does not require general anesthesia, and typically takes 45 minutes. You will see results right away and the recovery time is very minimal.

The unique Silhouette Instalift™ sutures are naturally absorbed by your body over time, stimulating the production of collagen to aid in healthy skin renewal for natural-looking, long lasting results. Call us today to schedule a complimentary consultation to see if Instalift™ is right for you.
