VOLUMA Victory!

It’s been about a month since I took the plunge with Voluma and I love it! My Sculptra from about 4 years ago was fading away and I couldn’t wait to try Juvederm’s latest product. Voluma did not disappoint! My cheekbones are defined and I got a more youthful lift to my cheeks as well. Even though I just had a birthday that pushed me into the “dark side” of my 30’s, I look better than I did 10 years ago! In my experience, Voluma is a definite game-changer in the world of fillers offering superior volume and lift (formerly only available with Sculptra) with instant results. Thinking about refreshing your look? I say Spring-forward with Voluma this season! If you have any questions or want additional information, please feel free to call my at MAS 917-703-7069

Woman spent two months in the hospital after injections at a spa!

In today’s world of beautiful decors, impressive websites, and eye-catching advertisements, it is quite difficult to know that the person you’re trusting to do your injectables is qualified to being doing it. Spas and “media-spas” are constantly bombarding the public with special offers and enticing deals for Botox and fillers at “better than physician” prices, but bargain shopping in the cosmetic industry isn’t always the best idea, and can sometimes be devastating like it was for this woman. Please make sure you know whether or not your injector is qualified, and don’t let price be the deciding factor. You may save a few hundred dollars at a medi-spa, but you may end up spending thousands to correct what goes wrong. Read the full story by clicking here, and as always, let us know if you have any questions or comments. We’re always happy to help.

SweatLipo: Laser Lipo for Excessive Sweating

DID YOU KNOW that a laser can be used to permanently reduce the number of hyperactive sweat glands in the same way that it reduces the number fat cells during laser liposuction?

Well, it’s true, and that is why you may sometimes see this procedure referred to as “SweatLipo”. There is no actual liposuction involved in the treatment of excessive sweating, but the laser fiber that is used can be the same or similar in both procedures.

Study Says Botox Treats Depression!

A new study from German researchers suggests that Botox is an effective treatment for clinical depression!

In their study, men and women being pharmacologically treated for clinical depression received Botox injections to their glabellar region (the area between the eyes), and their level of depression was assessed 6 weeks later. In 80% of these patients, their level of depression improved significantly (in both subjective and objective measures). The patients noted that they generally felt better, and their scores on scientific examinations designed to measure their level of depression improved. In the placebo group, only 20% of patients noted an improvement.

“This is a very interesting study,” says New York Plastic Surgeon Dr. Nicholas Vendemia. “There are quite a few people in Manhattan that deal with significant levels of stress on a daily basis, and I’ve heard from many of them that they generally ‘feel better’ after their Botox treatments. They say things like ‘I just don’t feel as stressed out when my Botox kicks in’, and I’ve been hearing these testimonials so frequently that it is ironic that this study was just published.”

Dr. Vendemia adds, “It makes sense if you think about it. When you look angry, frustrated or tired all the time, people react to you as if you are those things, and that starts a feedback loop that can become a vicious cycle that keeps you feeling angry, frustrated and tired. Botox interrupts that feedback loop,  and not only changes how you feel, but changes how others react to you.”

The FDA recently approved this hyaluronic-acid filler, known as Belotero, which can be used to treat moderate-severe facial wrinkles and folds. Belotero has been used for years in Europe and Canada, and it is very similar to other hyaluronic fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane. However, there are some key differences you should know about.

Lip Enhancement: Commentary from a Makeup Artist and a Plastic Surgeon

How to choose a lipstick, how to choose a lipstick color, Demure Makeup by LindseyLINDSEY LOPEZ: Professional Makeup Artist, San Antonio, TX

As a professional makeup artist, I’ve noticed a trend that has me wondering. LIPS!

I have seen some overdone lips that no longer have a natural look. In fact it looks like some have bad allergies or puffiness from waking up after a long nap. And, I have to say, that using nude lipstick on over-filled lips confuses me as a makeup artist. The cracks in the lips are emphasized with some nude lip colors making large lips look milky and not very luscious. Additionally, if you are wearing nude lipstick, you are taking away from them which makes me wonder why you got them fuller in the first place.

If you want fuller lips, my recommendation is to attract attention to them with color! Also some face shapes and eye shapes look better with smaller lips. It really comes down to personal preference and what makes you SMILE! J Makeup is meant to enhance your features and many products can do that for you.

New York Plastic Surgeon Dr Nicholas Vendemia MD of MAS | Manhattan Aesthetic Surgery Plastic Surgery New York Plastic Surgeon NYCNICHOLAS VENDEMIA, M.D.: Plastic Surgeon New York City

Lip enhancement is one of the most difficult injectible procedures, so it’s no wonder that there are so many overfilled, unnatural trout pouts! Here are my recommendations to make sure your lips turn out to be luscious instead of laughable:

  1. FIND AN EXPERIENCED INJECTOR: We’ve all heard the old adage, “you’re good at what you do”, and it couldn’t be more true for advanced injections like lips and cheekbones. You definitely want to have your lips done by someone who is qualified to be doing injections in the first place, and by someone who does lots of lips (not many doctors do). Don’t be shy about asking your plastic surgeon about his or her level of experience with lip enhancement, and make sure that you trust their answer before you dive in!
  2. LOOK AT BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS: One of the easiest (and best) ways to find out whether or not your injector is experienced with lip enhancement is to ask for Before & After photos. If they do not have any, or if their photos do not show consistently excellent results, you should probably go elsewhere.
  3. BE REALISTIC: Lips come in all shapes and sizes. Some are extremely thin, while others are enviably full without any enhancement whatsoever. If you’re in the thin category, even the most experienced injector won’t be able to give you Angelina Jolie’s level of plump, and if you let them try, you’ll wind up looking like one of the Beverly Hills Housewives! Lip enhancement is not about having a “fuller” or larger lip. It’s about having more of the pink part of your lip (the vermillion) visible, about having the perfect balance between your upper and lower lips, and about smoothing out wrinkles on the lip surface. Your lips should not be bigger and puffier after lip injections that are done well… they should just look prettier!
  4. GET SOME MAKEUP TIPS FROM A PRO: If your lips are extremely thin, remember, be realistic, and use a combination of subtle lip enhancement with a product like Juvederm, and a makeup lesson from a pro like Lindsey! Juvederm will allow more of the pink part of your lip to show so that Lindsey has a bigger canvas to work with, and as she said, a splash of the right color goes a long way towards lips that appear fuller and more fabulous!
  5. IF YOU GOT BAD LIP INJECTIONS, THEY CAN BE FIXED: If you’re not happy with the result of your lip augmentation, don’t lose hope. Most of the time, there are ways to improve the results, especially if you’ve been injected with a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler like Juvederm or Restylane.

Botox for Hair Loss and Male Pattern Baldness

Botox for Male Pattern Baldness and Hair Loss by NYC Plastic Surgeon Dr Nicholas Vendemia of MAS Manhattan Aesthetic SurgeryBotox is turning out to be something of a wonder drug…

We all know that it’s the gold standard for treating fine lines and wrinkles, and that it’s very effective for treating migraines, and excessive sweating. But now, Botox is being used to prevent hair loss and treat male pattern baldness!

In a research study of 50 men who received Botox injections to their scalp experienced an 20% increase in hair growth, and a 40% decrease in hair loss! The study participants received two injection sessions spaced 6 months apart. Botox seems to be a great way to add some additional effectiveness to topical treatments like Rogaine, and to oral treatments like Finasteride, and also a great way to delay, or replace. expensive surgical treatments like hair transplantation.

Men are having more cosmetic surgery!

Plastic Surgery for Men, Plastic Surgery, New York Plastic Surgeon Dr Nicholas Vendemia of MAS | 917-703-7069

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, more and more business men are having cosmetic procedures to stay ahead of their competition in the workplace.

Both surgical and nonsurgical procedures are increasing in popularity with men, but Botox and Injectible Soft Tissue Filler treatments, such as Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Sculptra, are standing out from the crowd. There is a growing group of men who believe that looking younger and healthier gives them a competitive advantage in making sales deals, obtaining a promotion, or securing a new job.

According to New York Plastic Surgeon Dr. Nicholas Vendemia of MAS, “About 90% of the people having cosmetic procedures are still women, but the percentage of men having Botox and Fillers has almost doubled in recent years, and continues to rise very quickly. It’s obvious that having a little help in looking good isn’t just for women any more.”
