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

The MAS Magnifique Clinical Facial!

MAS Magnifique Facial, Dr. Nicholas Vendemia, MAS, Manhattan Aesthetic Surgery, Plastic Surgeon New York City, Skincare New York City, Facials NYC

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.

MAS Magnifique Facial, Dr. Nicholas Vendemia, MAS, Manhattan Aesthetic Surgery, Plastic Surgeon New York City, Skincare New York City, Facials NYCYour skin is then exfoliated, with the help of a high-speed clinical cleansing brush.  The brush helps the cleanser penetrate the skin, while gently scrubbing away the top layers of dead skin.  This leaves the skin looking fresh and smooth.

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!

How do I schedule a MAS Magnifique Facial?

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…

Botox for Migraines, Botox NYC, New York Plastic Surgeon Dr. Nicholas Vendemia, MAS, Manhattan Aesthetic Surgery, How much does Botox cost?

Anyone who suffers from migraines, will agree that there is nothing worse!

The sensitivity to bright lights and loud sounds, nausea, inability to concentrate… I could go on forever. There are a wide variety of medications and treatments available to those who suffer from chronic headaches, many of which I have tried, and many of which have terrible side effects. However, the FDA recently approved a new treatment for migraines… BOTOX!

I’ve been getting migraines since I was in 5th grade, and I’ve literally tried everything from acupuncture to medications (Topamax, Imitrex, Midrin, Maxalt, Axert, etc, etc, etc) in an attempt to prevent and treat them. Topamax was the only medication that actually helped, but the side effects were worse than the headaches themselves. Afters years of searching for the right medication, I started to wonder if I would ever be able to get rid of my headaches… I didn’t know what to do or if there was anything else I could try. That’s when I started looking into Botox for migraine prevention.

There has been extensive research on this topic, and last year FDA approved Botox for treatment of chronic migraines. And although it varies from person to person, most of the study results showed a significant improvement in headaches after Botox. In fact, one study compared Botox and Topomax, and they found that there was similar improvements in frequency and intensity of headaches.

I was a little skeptical, but I gave up on the meds and decided to give Botox a try. I got a total of 45 units of Botox injected into my temples, forehead, between my eyes, and base of my neck, none of which hurt!

Within 3 days, I noticed a difference. Not only did I love the cosmetic benefit (I swear my eyes look more open and awake), but I was no longer getting my daily headaches! A huge improvement, with none of the side effects I had with the medications.

Two weeks after my first treatment, I (unfortunately) have I gotten a couple of headaches, but they are much less intense, and don’t happen as often! Before the Botox, I got a headache just about every day, and now I get a much milder headache once or twice a week. Even when I get one, I don’t feel like I need to lie down in a dark room anymore.

I have realized over the years that my headaches will probably never stop completely, but Botox is the first treatment that really made a difference without bad side effects. I will definitely be keeping up with the Botox treatments in the future.

Wanna look less “creepy”? Try the 3 F’s of Facial Rejuvenation: Facelift, Fat and Fillers!

jowls, turkey neck, facelift, necklift, facial volume loss, sunken cheeks, fix sunken cheeks, celebrity plastic surgery, MAS, Manhattan Aesthetic Surgery

models

Perez Hilton has a couple great photo galleries on his site called the “Creepiest Men/Women of Hollywood”, and these two characters stood out from the bunch as being ultra creepy 🙂

Are they the creepiest in Hollywood? Probably not, but that doesn’t make it any easier to take your eyes off them!

The both have the ultimate example of what happens to all of us as we get older… volume loss in the face. Most of us don’t lose volume to this extreme (Christopher’s face is almost falling off!), but we all lose it. We spend our lives dieting and sweating away our fat, and then all of a sudden we wish we had some extra to make our faces look young again.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could take some fat from a place that we have too much and put it in a place where we don’t have enough? And if we could get rid of those sunken cheeks, hanging jowls, and turkey necks?

There is! With the 3 F’s of Facial Rejuvenation… Facelift, Fat Injections, Fillers

Keep reading to find out how we can make the creepiest couple in Hollywood look young again!
