The MAS Magnifique Clinical Facial!

Rejuvenate and relax with MAS Magnifique, Manhattan Aesthetic Surgery’s signature facial and glycolic peel.

This refreshing facial is designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and will leave your skin glowing! Many of the products used for this facial are part of the Vivite skin care line, created by Allergan (the same company who makes Botox, Juvederm, and Natrelle breast implants). All Vivite products are made with their unique GLX technology, which is a combination of glycolic acid and natural antioxidants. Together, these ingredients promote collagen, hyaluronic acid, and epidermal growth of the skin (essential components for healthy, radiant, young skin).

What is MAS Magnifique?

This facial begins with a gentle cleanser to wash away any make up, oil, and other irritants that build up on the skin throughout the day.

Next, your skin is prepared with a glycolic prep, designed to help the skin absorb the products evenly. Vivite’s glycolic peel is then applied to diminish pore size by taking exfoliation to a whole new level! A soothing peppermint mask is used after the peel has been washed off to cool and calm your skin, and a redness-reducing moisterizer with sunscreen is applied to complete the facial.

How long does it take?

It usually takes 45-60 minutes, depending on your skin type.

Is there any down time?

No, this is a mild peel that does not require any down time. You can immediately re-apply your make-up and go on with your day looking noticeably more radiant and beautiful.

How much does it cost?

The MAS Magnifique Facial is priced $175, but if you mention this article when you schedule your consultation, you’ll get it for $99!

Botox for Bone Density?

Botox by New York Plastic Surgeon Dr Nicholas Vendemia of MAS | 917-703-7069

Researchers at Yale University had a very interesting question that they decided to test recently… Does the quality of your skin have anything to do with the quality of your bones?

If you think about it, it does make sense that your skin and bones may have something to do with one another. The chemical building blocks, such as collagen, that make up many of the tissues in your body are quite similar, and those building blocks deteriorate as we age. If collagen breaks down at an early age in your skin, it is only natural that it would break down in your bones as well.

The research team studied 114 women and found that skin quality is in fact related to bone “quality”. Women who had more wrinkles, and deeper wrinkles, were also found to have less bone density than women with more resilient, better “quality”, skin. Their conclusion was that wrinkles may be a red flag for decreasing bone density, and a reminder to take good care of your bones (Calcium + Vitamin D supplements, exercise, regular bone density scans).

The new question arising as a result of this study is… “Since Botox fixes wrinkles, will it fix your bones too?”. Unfortunately, the answer is no 😦

Botox doesn’t change your skin’s chemical structure or it’s level of collagen production (both of these things are determined by your genetics). Botox simply relaxes the muscles the pull on your skin and thereby softens the appearance of existing lines, and prevents new lines from forming. Having less wrinkles because of Botox isn’t the same thing as having less wrinkles because your skin was strong and wrinkle-resistant to begin with.

The bottom line here is that if you have great skin, chances are that you have great bones too. And just as people with great skin should still consider Botox treatments to keep wrinkles at bay, people with good bone density should keep up with their nutrition and exercise regimens to make sure they don’t get “wrinkles” in their bones.

Botox for Migraines…My experience (update!)

Shea Slaymaker, MAS, Manhattan Aesthetic Surgery, Dr Nicholas Vendemia, Plastic Surgeon New York City

It has now been a little over 4 weeks since I got Botox injections for chronic migraines.

I wrote my original article about 2 weeks after my first treatment, and I was still having a few headaches. At that time, the headaches were different (not as intense and did not last as long), but I was still getting them.

In the time after those first 2 weeks, and one touch up to add more Botox at the base of my neck and temples, I have been almost 100% headache free (something that no medication or alternative treatment has ever been able to do). I have had a few headaches over these past weeks (maybe 2 or 3), but they have been so mild that I cannot even remember when I got them.

The real test came this past week… work was crazy, I was sleep deprived, and not eating right (I should point out that it was also a full moon). Normally, stressful weeks like this trigger a terrible migraine that will last for days. Surprisingly, I haven’t had one headache, not even a mild one!

In fact, when I sat down to start writing this update, I actually had a hard time figuring out when my last headache actually was. I am so happy (and amazed) to say that I have not felt this good since 5th grade when I first started getting these headaches.

Botox may not work for everyone who gets migraines. But if you are like me, and have tried anything and everything for migraines without any relief, give Botox a try! You definitely dont burn any bridges, and even if it doesnt help your headaches, you still get the cosmetic benefit!
