Demonstrations by Dr. Mark Ballentyne on injectable fillers, with shoulder-to-
Dr. Ballentyne demonstrated use of the Fraxel laser on a pre-arranged patient with acne scarring. A Fraxel laser representative explained how this a non-invasive treatment works and the range of skin problems it treats. Viewers were able to ask questions on the spot. The Fraxel laser produces fresher looking, smoother, tighter skin with improved tone and texture, and reduces wrinkles around the eyes.
Dr. Lawrence Gray spoke on “The Aging Face and Neck”. “Patients are seeking a natural appearance with quick recovery. Surgery alone does not improve the quality of the skin. We use a comprehensive approach toward rejuvenating the face, including medical level skin care, Botox Cosmetic or Dysport, dermal fillers and/ or facial surgery, give patients a outstanding result with extremely little risk”, said Dr. Gray.
In another talk on “Truth and myths of Liposuction”
Dr. Gray conducted brief consultations on breast augmentation with saline and silicone implants, scarless breast reduction, liposuction, tummy tucks and facial enhancement surgery. Demonstrations were given on the Axis 3D Imaging System, which shows patients what they will look like after surgery. This surgical simulation tool, which first takes a 3D picture of the patient’s body, next, allows the patient to select implant size, and then shows the patient how that implant size will look on their body. Dr. Gray’s 3D imager, the only one in northern New England, can give patients far better information than they can get currently through discussion and simply looking at before and after pictures.
Obagi and all medical level skin care program were of high interest. Patients are looking for real improvement and want to spend their money carefully. Offers of significant discounts were made the night of the party to attendees. A 20% off discount is still available to everyone on all skin care products and treatments through 12/17/10. Many patients had free Visia Skin Analysis sessions, a digital skin analysis which uses a multi-spectral imaging system to identify problem areas of the patient’s complexion, allowing for a customized skin treatment program that targets those areas.
Sclerotherapy, a leg vein treatment for unsightly, painful varicose and spider veins in the legs and ankles was demonstrated throughout the evening, using advanced lighting for magnification ensuring precision in treatment.
