What’s a Cake Without Icing?

17 Sep

Cake without icing? It’s like a facelift that doesn’t leave you with a fully-finished, polished and glowing new you. I think we’d agree that both prospects don’t sound appealing. After many years of experience, my approach to the face is comprehensive; I believe it’s important to improve the face itself and to improve the skin as well.

At Marina Plastic Surgery, we want you to have an overall common but nice skinrejuvenated look that is fresh, clear and truly beautiful.
In order to achieve the best results, I always customize the treatment that I use for each individual patient. After all, there isn’t just one filler that works best for the entire face, and there isn’t just one procedure that rises to every skin challenge.

For wrinkles under the eyes, red spots from broken capillaries close to the skin’s surface, or brown spots from age or sun damage, here are some of the additional tools that I feel have helped achieve consistent and impressive results:

• Limelight: This non-invasive light treatment is great for improving skin tone and age spots.
• Clear and Brilliant: A gentle, non-surgical laser that helps even the skin’s canvas and improve texture by minimizing the appearance of pores.
• Halo Laser: This is a wonderful, new hybrid laser that targets the deeper dermis layers of the skin, causing pigment from damaged layers to rise to the surface and peel off.

Let us use our best tools to bring out the very best in your skin and get the most out of your facelift! Give us a call today. We’d love to hear from you. You can also check out my video for the Plastic Surgery Channel here.

Meet The Amazing Halo Laser

11 May

All those years sun worshipping as a teenager made us pay a high price! Ugh – wrinkles! Enter Halo™ laser to the rescue.

Halo by Sciton is the first and only hybrid, fractional laser that safely and comfortably targets damage specific to your skin to get rejuvenated, glowing, youthful-looking skin again. While other lasers penetrate too deeply, or not deeply enough to be most effective, the Halo laser has two wavelengths to target the epidermis and the deeper dermis levels specifically, leading to epidermal renewal and deep dermal rejuvenation. Here I am getting a treatment. I love it!

Stevens getting HaloThrough a healing process of only a few days, pigment from the damaged skin rises to the surface and peels off to give you clear, radiant, luminous skin. The Halo laser’s unique cooling system and temperature monitoring even keeps your skin comfortable and safe throughout the procedure.

Here are some of the ways Halo can improve your glow:
• Correct damage due to tanning, sunspots, and aging.
• Improve appearance of tone, texture and fine lines.
• Reduce pore size to increase reflectivity.
• Encourage continual dermal rejuvenation, with shorter downtimes.

I suggest starting with a one-on-one consultation with Cory in our office to determine customized treatment levels with flexible downtimes. Check out the video to see for yourself: https://vimeo.com/sciton/review/115683212/dc334a3312

Get in touch with Cory today at (310) 827-2653 to learn how your skin’s outer glow can finally start reflecting that vibrant, youthful glow you have on the inside.

Get glowing! WGS

Is Laser Resurfacing Right for You?

27 Mar

If you were a teenager in the 60s and 70s, chances are you spent way too much time in the sun slathering on baby oil to get just the right amount of deep tanning. Now we know how dangerous too much sun exposure and tanning salon time can be. It can put sun devotees on a path to a melanoma, a dangerous and sometimes fatal skin cancer.

sun damageIf you have age spots, wrinkled skin and look like you could audition to be a prune or raisin in a local community play, there is hope…new and better lasers.  The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons has a description of what you can expect from laser resurfacing treatments on its great website about all things beauty – the Smart Beauty Guide.

If you want to learn more about the laser treatments we do at Marina Plastic Surgery, you can find more information by clicking here.  Summer’s coming, so what better time to get beautiful skin for all those fabulous parties and vacations.
