Is discounted Botox safe?

You may be at risk if the price is too good to be true. There have been recent reports of unscrupulous individuals--even physicians--using non-FDA approved botulism type products. Some Botox, though FDA approved is diluted resulting in a less effective dosage. And at the extreme, there have been individuals promoting “do it yourself Botox” on the web. Just remember you usually get what you pay for. Make sure you know the providers reputation and experience. Always ask how many “units” of Botox you are receiving. If you are worried, ask to see the Botox bottle. The FDA approved Botox has a hologram that would be very hard to counterfeit.


Can I get fuller lips without getting injections?

Radiofrequency treatments can be used to tighten the skin around the lips for a reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles. In addition, the contraction of the skin can also help reveal more of the red part of the lips. Our patients often love to get the treatment before a big event because the plumping can cause a temporary smoothness of the skin. Don’t expect Radiofrequency treatments to give you the same plump lips that you get after filler injections. The results are much more subtle and don’t have the immediate wow factor that injectables have. 


How can I treat my Lipomas?

A lipoma is a benign (noncancerous) growth of fat cells just below the skin. The tendency to develop Lipomas is inherited and is the most common noncancerous soft tissue growth. Lipomas usually are painless, movable and have a soft, rubbery consistency.They tend to remain the same size over years or grow very slowly. There is no known treatment to prevent lipomas or to slow their growth. A lipoma may be surgically removed if it becomes unsightly or bothersome. Traditionally lipomas have been removed through an incision that required stitches and could leave a small scar.We have had great success treating lipomas using the Smart Lipo Laser and small liposuction cannulas that leave almost no scar.
