Facelift Without Downtime - NJ Non Invasive Facelift Options

POSTED ON FRIDAY, JULY 01, 2022 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

The signs of facial aging are often the most noticeable, causing many patients to seek facial rejuvenation procedures in NJ. While many patients are great candidates for facelift surgery, non-invasive procedures can offer solutions to facial aging without having to go under the scalpel or take extended downtime.

These procedures provide long-lasting, natural-looking results and are ideal for patients looking to combat the signs of facial aging.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is effective in treating blemishes, damaged skin, and other signs of aging. Using precise laser technology, laser skin resurfacing can be tailored to fit the individual goals of each patient.

There are various laser options available to treat different facial concerns. Dr. Asaadi is able to help patients decide which option is best for achieving their desired results. Laser skin resurfacing can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are used to treat imperfections of the skin, often caused by aging, genetics, or excessive sun exposure. Through different levels of exfoliation, chemical peels can correct a wide variety of skin irregularities on the face.

There are three levels of chemical peels; light chemical peels, medium chemical peels, and deep chemical peels. Each peel targets a different layer of the skin and provides different results. Dr. Asaadi will help you decide which level of chemical peel is necessary to achieve your desired rejuvenation results.

Botox®

Botox® is a cosmetic injectable that reduces the signs of facial aging. Botox® is effective in treating wrinkles that form around the mouth, eyes, and forehead due to repeated facial muscle contractions.

Botox® works by temporarily limiting the facial expressions that lead to fine lines and wrinkles. This procedure takes approximately 10-20 minutes to perform and can easily be tailored to fit the desired results of each patient.

Ultherapy®

Ultherapy® is a non-invasive skin-tightening treatment that is used to lift and tone facial tissue that has lost elasticity or begun to sag. Using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy® uses direct sound waves to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen.

Because of its minimally-invasive nature, Ultherapy® patients can return to their regular activities almost immediately after undergoing the procedure. Visible improvements can be noticed following your first treatment, but the results will continue to develop in the months to follow.

Prepare Your Skin For Summer - NJ Skin Care Treatments

POSTED ON MONDAY, MAY 09, 2022 AT 3:12 PM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Just as changing seasons means a shift in our wardrobe, it also creates new challenges for our skin.

As the hot and humid summer season creeps up, our skin’s balance can be disrupted, resulting in inflammation and irritation.Our face is especially susceptible to these changes, as it is always receiving direct exposure to the elements.

Sun damage from UV rays ages the skin and encourages the development of sun spots and discoloration, so after a summer of beach trips and tanning, our skin could certainly use a pick me up.

At Asaadi Plastic Surgery we offer a number of treatments which can help lift away dead skin cells, remove blemishes and imperfections, and restore moisture in preparation for the upcoming season.

Following skin care treatments, patients should be conscious of their time in the sun until fully healed. The skin will be extremely sensitive, so it’s important to load up on SPF and other forms of sun protection such as hats, umbrellas, or seeking shade in order to receive optimal results.

 

Chemical Peel

Chemical peels can exfoliate the skin, promote skin cell regeneration, treat fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, and even the skin tone. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery we offer 3 varieties of chemical peels which differ in strength of treatment and chemical composition.

The light chemical peel gently removes dead and damaged skin to treat fine lines, acne, and discoloration, as well as promote the production of collagen and elastin. The medium chemical peel improves discoloration and facial lines with a deeper rejuvenating effect than the light chemical peel. The deep chemical peel delivers the most prominent results in the treatment of wrinkles, facial lines, acne scars, and uneven pigmentation by revitalizing the deepest layers of the skin that cause blemishes and cosmetic irregularities. Patients can expect noticeably smoother and brighter skin with a full-face chemical peel treatment.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing uses lasers to treat skin imperfections such as wrinkles, acne, age spots, and other cosmetic irregularities that occur with aging. A full-face treatment may be performed, or trouble areas of the skin can be targeted at various depths using an assortment of lasers. Each laser is designed to achieve a unique goal, such as skin tightening, the reduction of sun spots or blemishes, the production of new collagen, and more.

Microneedling with PRP

Microneedling with platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin to enhance skin firmness and structure, while reducing the appearance of wrinkles, acne scarring, and other cosmetic irregularities. Microneedling is performed using the COSMOPen tool which places tiny punctures in the skin, while platelet rich plasma isolated from your own blood sample is injected into treated areas to enhance healing and achieve natural, longer-lasting results.

HydraFacial MD®

HydraFacial MD® is a noninvasive hydradermabrasion skin treatment which combines cleansing, extraction, and hydration to rejuvenate and soothe skin. HydraFacial MD® uses cleansing serums, facial peels, hydrating, and healing extracts in a four-stage process to resurface the skin and brighten the complexion. Patients can expect an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, uneven skin tone, lost elasticity, skin congestion, blemishes, age spots, and overall skin texture with the HydraFacial MD® treatment.

Casmara Facial Masks

Casmara facial masks use mineral substances, healing extracts, and natural ingredients to firm and moisturize the skin while also protecting it from free radicals and other environmental aggressors such as smoke, UV rays, pollution, and stress. Casmara face masks are suitable for a variety of skin types, and can reduce inflammation and the prominence of facial aging.

Fast, Fabulous Fixes in February

POSTED ON TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 01, 2022 AT 9:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

It’s a common misconception that any kind of transformative plastic surgery must entail a lengthy procedure and extended downtime to follow. However, there are a wide variety of non-surgical options to have you looking and feeling your best without having to go under the scalpel.

Dr. Asaadi performs non-invasive procedures that are designed for patients seeking a younger-looking appearance without the long recovery period or risks associated with traditional plastic surgery. These treatments are ideal for achieving natural-looking and long-lasting results. 

Ultheraphy® 

Ultherapy® is a non-surgical procedure that provides skin tightening effects to the face and neck by using innovative ultrasound technology to promote collagen production. Ultheraphy® can be used to correct fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and sagging skin.

Ultherapy® is performed in-office and takes as little as 30-60 minutes to complete. Patients are able to return home immediately after their procedure and can quickly return to their lives as normal.

Kybella®

Kybella® injections can diminish the appearance of a double chin. As we age, excess skin and fat start to accumulate around the chin and neck, causing us to look older than we feel. With Kybella®, patients can enjoy a sculpted jawline without having to undergo surgery.

Kybella® contains deoxycholic acid, which is naturally produced in the human body. Once injected, Kybella® works quickly to destroy fat cells in the chin and neck, leaving patients with youthful contours. Kybella® injections are administered in-office and can take 10-15 minutes to complete.

Hydrafacial MD®

HydraFacial MD® is a multi-step procedure that combines the skin resurfacing powers of cleansing, extraction, and hydration to leave patients with smoother, youthful, and restored skin.

HydraFacial MD® can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, and more. Results can be noticed immediately following the treatment. HydraFacial MD® opens the pores to allow for impurities to be removed and healing treatments to be delivered to the lower layers of the skin. The procedure is non-invasive and provides long-lasting improvements to skin texture.

Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty

Non-surgical blepharoplasty treats crow’s feet, fine lines, and hollowness surrounding the eyes. With a combination of cosmetic fillers, patients can enjoy younger-looking eyes without the downtime associated with traditional eyelid surgery.

After receiving non-surgical blepharoplasty, patients can immediately return to work and daily activities. The results often last for years before and touch-ups are necessary.

Dr. Asaadi and his staff are on hand to answer any questions you may have concerning non-surgical treatments. Contact our New Jersey office at 913.731.7000, our New York office at 212.938.0158, or you may request an appointment online today!

Microneedling & PRP New Jersey - Treat Wrinkles, Acne Scars, & More

POSTED ON MONDAY, MARCH 08, 2021 AT 8:00 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

As you age, your body begins to produce less elastin and collagen, which is what keeps your skin youthful and firm. With less elastin and collagen, wrinkles, fine lines, and creases may form and cause you to look older than you actually are. Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, combined with PRP can improve the texture and appearance of the skin for a radiant complexion.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that creates tiny holes within the skin to encourage the skin to heal. Your body responds to these tiny punctures by producing additional elastin and collagen fibers to promote healing. Over time, the elastin and collagen fibers can promote firmer, smoother-looking skin.

What Is PRP?

PRP, which is known as platelet rich plasma, is derived from the platelets naturally found in your blood. Platelets play an important role in your body’s response to healing injuries and can speed up your body’s tissue repair process. During a PRP treatment, blood is drawn as if you were undergoing a routine blood test. This sample is then placed in a centrifuge and separated into several components. PRP is then collected from this sample and used to assist your body’s natural healing mechanisms.

What Are The Benefits Of Microneedling With PRP?

Combining PRP with microneedling can further improve skin rejuvenation results following collagen induction therapy. Microneedling with PRP therapy allows for the platelet rich plasma to be better absorbed by your skin, encouraging your natural healing cycle.

Benefits Of Microneedling With PRP:

  • Restores skin elasticity
  • Increases collagen production
  • Reduces fine lines
  • Decreases blemishes, acne scars, & pore size
  • Reduces the appearance of stretch marks

Microneedling with PRP injections treats various signs of aging, including wrinkles, acne scars, pore size, and more.
