BellaFill Fills Fine Lines & Acne Scars

November 22, 2016

Anti-Acne & Anti-Aging

There is only one thing that competes with the uncomfortable concern of acne- and that’s acne scarring. Unsightly adult acne, more often than not, leads to having to deal with irreversible skin damage, until now!

The unexpected solution sweeping the nation is the latest cosmetic injectable facial filler Bellafill. If you are someone who suffers from the ever-lasting psychological effects and physical reactions from acne conditions, Bellafill is the answer to your prayers.

A distressing quantity of individuals, estimated between 40 million to 50 million Americans, have been affected by some form of acne, and not just teenagers. Individuals seek out a variety of “proper” treatments for this embarrassing dermal ailment in hopes to rid themselves of acne scars once and for all. Whether at-home popping, antibiotics, creams, ointments, cleansers or other remedies to cure, those who experience scars caused from acne result in never forgetting some of their most traumatizing years.

Hard To Treat: Acne to Acne Scarring

Acne and acne scarring is quite hard to treat due to a large sum of factors including plugging of pores and oil production, unhealthy diet, genetics, sun exposure, poor skin-care, etc.

Inflammation may occur from mild to the most severe cases; research indicates that even on the surface of the skin of acne patients where one doesn’t see any reminisce of pimples, breakouts and blemishes, there are inciting elements on a molecular level which never diminish. Assorted bacteria and hormones, particularly androgens (the male hormones present in men and women) will require additional attention. They overstimulate the oil glands and hair follicles in the skin, causing communal acne flares.

BellaFill Fights Back!

Dr. Monica Tadros stands behind the most revolutionary formulated product to treat acne scars- Bellafill. Bellafill is taking the cosmetic and medical industry by storm as it is the only dermal facial filler on the market to have been approved by the FDA for the correction of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scars of the cheek in patients over the age of 21. As an injectable filler made up of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), Bellafill may also be used in conjunction with other alternative forms of treatment, such as laser resurfacing or chemical peels, for a more comprehensive result!

Dr. Monica Tadros injects Bellafill under the scars to stimulate an individual’s own collagen to fill the scar. The unique injectable gel, comprised of tiny microspheres integrates and promotes new tissue growth. These spheres are smaller than a human hair, barely visible to the eye, but they are prevailing in collagen production. Patients can see improvement immediately, but the true results occur as the skin continues to get smoother as your own body fills in the scars.

Introducing the only dermal filler approved for the correction of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheek in patients over the age of 21 years.

Bellafill offers an important difference to patients who know acne scar correction can be very costly. What if instead of just filling, you could actually restore?

It has distinctive properties. The Bellafill formulated solution works in two ways:

  • The collagen provides immediate volume below atrophic acne scars to lift them to the level of the surrounding skin.
  • The PMMA microspheres create a matrix that supports endogenous collagen production.

On average, Bellafill lasts between 1 and 5 years. Patients who have a series of 2 or 3 injections find their results last longer.

As this innovative and noninvasive facial filler has been introduced to the market by some of the most highly accredited surgeons and dermatologist, other social influencers began endorsement because of its permanent effects vs. temporary grades in comparison to previously qualified leading industry products recognized in the cosmetic industry like Juvederm / Restylane.

About Face: Turning Back Time

On top of aiding with acne scars, Bellafill also works as a skin smoothing elucidation for fine lines and wrinkles. Despite it all, we can stop the evolutionary aging process, but Bellafill can smoothly slow it down a bit. No matter what your life stage is, from adolescence to a maturing adult on a quest for ageless beauty, Bellafill can erase the lines and scars of the past.

Zapping Zits and The Angst Against Acne

A healthy lifestyle goes a long way when it comes to keeping one’s skin blemish-free, no matter what stage of development and age you are in. Anguish regarding acne is an ordinary reaction, but stressing about it does not help. Although skin problems are a seemingly common aesthetic issue, they do not have to be permanent or effect one’s self-esteem and confidence. Acne is temporary and so are the emotional and physical scars.

lucypetersaesth_1424278618_140Since the beginning of time, women have discreetly sought magic potions, elixirs and creams that attempt to provide or, at least maintain their beauty. Today, the market for beauty and personal care is saturated with products and services. Faced with this superabundance of offerings, woman of all ages tend to, more often than not, obsess over trying new products and visiting facilities they see advertised in glossy magazines. The results, though, can often be disappointing and significant percentages of consumers don’t achieve the anticipated results. Too many women end up with bungled procedures and great dissatisfaction. To be smart about beauty and personal care, you must know that selecting the combination of the right experts, clinics, techniques and products matters.

At the luxurious Lucy Peters Aesthetic Center, we’ve discovered an oasis in Manhattan where no deceiving advertising will derail you from your journey to perfection.

For our editors, the Lucy Peters facility is one of the best-kept secrets in town. The spa offers services that are truly unique, and their expertise defines their brand, their identity and what they represent. At Lucy Peters, the experts know very intricately the processes we need medically to assure our patients they are in good hands”, admits Kinga Bagnowska, manager of the Spa located at 150 East 58th Street in Manhattan. The venue offers excellent treatments to eliminate unwanted hair on your body.

Internationally recognized, Lucy Peters started her medical engineering research more than two decades ago following a poor experience related to unwanted hair.

A clinician and dermatologist, Peters’ experience and research created patented techniques and adopted aesthetic solutions that together contributed to defining her brand name. Several years ago, Peters partnered with world renowned dermatologist, Dr. Albert Klingman (co-inventor of Retin-A) to create the Lucy Peters Smooth System, the only FDA approved permanent hair removal treatment. After Lucy Peters retired, the spa continued to thrive and is expanding its services to include new techniques for permanent hair removal, hair restoration, skin tightening, tattoo removal and more.

“We have a nurse that is unique, Yone Tierney. She’s been in the spa for 20 years so her knowledge is part of this treasured spa where you can get the best results possible. When you have to get FDA approval and encounter hundreds of regulations, you need the best doctors in the handling of your skin and body. It’s a wellness package like no other”, says Bagnowska.

One of the reasons that the Lucy Peters hair removal process is unique, is the fact that Lucy Peters developed a system that applies to different hair colors. It’s a process that is color blind, be it gray, red, blonde, brown or black hair, the system adapts to the person’s individual condition, thus removing effectively without seeing the hair grow back.

The clinic environment of Lucy Peters is very tranquil and professional. Owned by plastic surgeon Gil R. Altman, the venue is nestled in midtown east. It is a convenient building where you will get pampered and treated for the tailored services you need. “We make an assessment based on your needs, but the fact is that coming here once and applying hair removal just a few times, without having terrible consequences on your skin like in grown hair or other side effects, it’s a big plus for our clients”, concludes Bagnowska.

The Lucy Peters Aesthetic Center is located in the A&D Building at 150 East 58th Street, Suite 2901, N.Y., N.Y., 10155.

NYC Plastic Surgeon Focuses in on Male Aesthetics

December 28, 2015

DrSteinbrechSittingatDeskBorn and raised in a small farm town in Iowa just outside Cedar Rapids, Dr. Steinbrech has a passion in the field of plastic surgery like no other doctor. He attended college at the University of Iowa for both his undergraduate (B.S. Biology with honors) and MD (medical doctor) degrees.

Specialty includes: Male Plastic Surgery in NYC

Now an iconic figure in the city of New York, he gives us an insight into his life in the Big Apple.

 “Dr. Steinbrech admits NYC is the greatest in the world!”

Why did you go into the specialty of plastic surgery for men?

While in the early years of medical school, I began to research specialties, I also realized that plastic surgery was like no other medical specialty – it was a unique marriage of skills where technique and creativity join together.

How has the trend changed for men?  It used to be the gym, why do plastic surgery?

For most men, plastic surgery is an extension of what they do in the gym. One trend we see is people are considering procedures because of the role they play in the public eye. For example, models, musicians, and actors are among the population of people concerned with maintaining their outward appearance. We are also seeing more and more fathers who have spent the last several years of their lives focusing on raising a family and now feel that they want to re-focus on their health and appearance, just like mothers. Another area of growth is the CEO’s and Boardroom Executives. This group of men are finding themselves across the table from younger executives who are fit and have a strong appearance, and in many cases they feel maintaining their physical appearance gives them a competitive edge in the boardroom.

You have been featured in books, and have done conferences on the subject.  What makes you the best plastic surgeon for men?

I understand men. I think that is the most important part. I have a very high volume of men come through my practice and the number of men I see continues to increase. Over the years of focusing on men, I have learned a lot and adjusted my technique to tailor results to their desires. My goal as a surgeon is always to continue to innovate and offer my patients the best possible outcomes through advances in technology and technique. I am very honored to be working with CRC Publishing, Inc. to put together the first textbook focusing solely on male plastic surgery. It’s slated to be out in the Fall of 2016 and I hope it will be a great help to other surgeons who are bringing procedures to the men in their communities.

What places are the best for you to shop and dine in the city?

I love NYC shopping – but I have to say my favorite places are Ralph Lauren, J Crew, or anything I see in Soho. Of course living in NYC, we have every kind of restaurant anyone could ever want, but like shopping, I have my favorites. If I am downtown, I always try to dine at Pastis and when I am uptown my favorite place is the restaurant inside the Mark hotel.

There are three Myths about plastic surgery I want people to better understand:

1. All plastic surgery is bad. Plastic surgery is only bad if it is overdone, and in my practice we want patients to have a natural look when it’s all said and done. Plastic surgery can be very good if it is unnoticeable; which is exactly what we focus on. Natural results.

2. Plastic surgery does not mean you don’t diet and exercise. Most people think that people who get plastic surgery are lazy or don’t want to work and take care of their bodies. This could not be farther from the truth. Some of my very best patients live very healthy lifestyles. They eat healthy, exercise regularly and get plenty of rest.

3. Fat should be “lasered” out and thrown away. There are so many good uses for our own fat I hate to hear when it gets discarded. I have developed a technique called BodyBanking (Patent Pending) involves saving that fat and putting it into your biceps, pecs, breast and bottom’s. It creates natural volume and it helps prevent the patient from getting a bulging tummy if they put on a few pounds after surgery.

How Dr. Dadurian Found The Fountain of Youth

June 16, 2015

The dedicated doctor who keeps expanding her business with a second location in Palm Beach, is revolutionizing the way we look for the sake of natural beauty!

By Rebeca Herrero

With two locations in Palm Beach, Dr. Dadurian is revolutionizing the Anti-Aging world in one of the most demanding cities when it comes to looking and feeling youthful, Palm Beach.  Her secret stems from her professional background as a doctor.  After years of being an internist, she decided to venture in this field, becoming the preferred doctor when it comes to contouring parts of your body and minimizing wrinkles in your face.

Her refreshing and youthful appearance is a testament to her own research in the Anti-Aging and Regenerative processes.  She excels in laser liposuction, skin tightening for face and body, and instant wrinkle correction.  She also offers great micronutrient testing, telomere testing, weight loss therapy and IV vitamin therapy.  Recently she completed a fellowship in Stem Cell Therapy and is an extreme advocate for preventative medicine.

The mother of two – she has two teenagers that attend the Rosarian Academy- is a world traveler with an incessant quest for finding new techniques that will foster preventative medicine.  A big believer in methods that will make us feel and look youthful, she believes that taking care of your face and body are an integral part to finding the fountain of youth.  “I believe you should start young and not wait until you are so old, because this way you can prevent aging at a faster pace. You will be more in control,” admits the Armenian born doctor, raised in Germany and England.

Her second location in the Palm Beach, Bioage MD is a spin-off of MD Beauty Labs, a 4,000 sq feet venue located in West Palm Beach.  The new facility consisting of 1200 sq ft includes an oxygen bar, an organic juice bar and an IV vitamin cocktail lounge.  Her expectations are for it to grow into a national franchise that will empower customers to seek positive changes in their lives.

From her office at MD Beauty Labs in West Palm Beach, Dr. Dadurian gives Art Bodega Magazine an insight into her powerful world of beauty and health.

When did you start your practice?

1997

Why Palm Beach? 

Since I went to Miami University and lived in Miami for so many years, I was ready for a change. Palm Beach is great place to be.

Where are you from?

I was born in Romania, raised in Germany. I attended a boarding school in England. After high school, I left Europe to attend the University of Miami School of Medicine.

How would you describe yourself in the field of medicine and what makes you unique?
I consider myself to be an innovative doctor in the field of anti-aging and aesthetic medicine. I am unique because I am relentlessly seeking out the newest technologies and anti-aging and beauty treatments on the market

How would you describe your style? 

My style is artistic and science-based.

You have been successful for more than two decades in South Florida.  Why clients prefer you? 

I think my clients prefer me because I was their trusted medical doctor prior to specializing in the field of aesthetics. I have worked hard to become an expert in this field and most people choose to come to me through word-of-mouth referrals
You have a great environment in your venues.  Who creates this, how do you get inspired?
I’ve always had a passion for art and the decor is a reflection of my modern style and love of colors. My mother was an architect so I am naturally inherent of these characteristics.
Where do you like to travel? 

I have been all over the world traveling is my passion. I work hard and I also play hard.  My favorite place to visit so far has been Africa.

What is the secret to your youthful look?

People tend to tell me that as I age I’m looking younger.  As I reflect back on some of my photos, this seems to be true.  I would attribute that to many of my aesthetic techniques and services that are offered in my practice are due to the fact that I have not waited until I look old before I do something about it.  I feel that many of the treatments that I’ve had done are for the purpose of maintaining my youth.

What is your daily routine? 

My daily routine consists of getting my kids ready for school and starting work at my MD beauty labs location for most of the day.  Then I leave that location and continue working at BioageMD which is my Palm Beach location.  I work on a daily basis at least until 7 p.m. every night

Any good advice for us to know about beauty…What we shall not do?
One beauty suggestion that I would give to someone if they asked me is to stay out of the sun as much as possible.
Also what are the plans for the future… What is the next goal for Dr Dadurian?

It don’t have any immediate plans for the future but I would like to eventually franchise my BioageMD location as it is now.  I want people to know what a great concept it is, all for their enjoyment.
