October 2017 – Although it is been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the brow since 2002, the FDA recently approved the use Botox for forehead lines. This is the third area of the face to attain FDA approval, with the other two areas being between the brows (glabellar lines) and the lines around the eyes, also known as “crow’s feet.”

Botox has long been used in the forehead by physicians, but now it is official. Nothing is more effective to smooth mild to even severe forehead lines. As well, Botox can even provide a non-surgical browlift when the right amount is injected above the brow.

One of the most popular cosmetic procedures, over 7 million Botox treatments were performed in 2016. Botox is considered safe when used by experienced, certified injectors, and is very versatile. Small amounts can be used in other areas of the face to tweak a patients smile, bunny lines on the nose, smooth neckbands, and get rid of chin dimples in addition to the three FDA approved areas of use. It is even used medically to treat a number of ailments, including excessive sweating and neck pain.

“Botox works by relaxing the muscles in your forehead to smooth the lines and prevent them from worsening,” says Dallas Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Benjamin Bassichis. “They key to great results is to start early and remain consistent.”

For more information on Botox for forehead lines, we invite you to call 972.774.1777 for your complimentary cosmetic consultation.

A recent scientific article in the medical journal Cutis took a detailed look at the data regarding Microneedling Therapy With and Without Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). According to data, microneedling continues to evolve with a range of applications in skin care. As well, as PRP has gained popularity, there has been increased interest in its utilization to amplify the regenerative effects of microneedling. Although the number of direct comparisons examining microneedling with and without PRP is limited, the available evidence indicates that the addition of PRP may improve cosmetic outcomes. These results have been demonstrated in the treatment of acne scars, but favorable effects may extend to other indications including skin texture and quality.

While microneedling alone can provide an excellent result in many instances, certain patients may benefit from increased improvement with the addition of PRP to their microneedling. We invite you to contact our office to see how microneedling therapy with or without Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) can improve your facial appearance.

2016_Cosmetic_Surgery

The latest American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery statistics show cosmetic surgery’s increased popularity in 2016. The reality, is that for patients to achieve their desired long-term results they need cosmetic surgery in addition to topical treatments and fillers. Trending in 2016 is a combination approach — even a multidisciplinary approach — to surgery, using more than just one procedure to achieve desired patient results. Luckily for patients at ADVANCED, this is what our own Dr. Bassichis has been doing all along…the media is just now starting to notice.

The best work is with combination therapies using facial plastic surgery, laser, injectables and topical treatments to achieve the best outcomes.

More than blending disciplines, today’s patients are benefiting from a blending of technologies to attain truly rejuvenated results. Many plastic surgeons are concerned over the over-promotion of results from nonsurgical treatments. Too many times, the patients bear the brunt of the failed treatment, both aesthetically and financially. ‘If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is,’ is a true mantra in the aesthetic field. New technologies that truly produce effective, dramatic results will rise to the top, while others will continue to fall in the pile of other failed and overhyped treatments. While surgery continues to be the predictable and ultimate treatment for conditions of excess skin and fat. Facial plastic surgery remains the gold standard for facial rejuvenation. But when combined effectively with laser and nonsurgical treatments can offer patient noticeably improved long-term results.

Beautifully yours,

Drs. Michelle and Benjamin Bassichis

Evolving_Facelift

Remember back when facial plastic surgeons relied only on surgery only to rejuvenate patients’ faces?  So much has changed with innovatively combining facelift, laser other surgeries with nonsurgical approaches and skin care to enhance outcomes. He says the modern-day facial rejuvenation “package” approach improves and prolongs patient results and enhances safety and satisfaction.

Today, facial rejuvenation patients see Dr. Bassichis for surgical consultations, but also see the licensed clinical aestheticians at the ADVANCED Medi.SPA who recommend nonsurgical options for improving skin elasticity, skin tone and more before surgery. Not only do patients come to the operating room with healthier skin, but they’re also better educated about how to keep their skin looking good. There is a focus on skin health including sun blocks, antioxidant and moisturizers that enhance the overall, long-term result. Dr. Bassichis also combines techniques and technologies that improve post-surgical bruising and swelling such as lymphatic drainage massage and oral supplements. This evolved facelift provides the beautiful, natural results that Dallas and national patients come to seek from Dr. Bassichis.

Vanity_Promotes_Sunscreen

Are you having trouble getting your teenager to wear sunscreen?

A recent study showed that vanity works better than fear in getting adolescents to use sunscreen.

Patients watched one of two videos promoting sunscreen use among adolescents. One video emphasized the premature aging effects of UV light on skin appearance. The other video focused on the relationship between UV light and skin cancer.

Six weeks later, sunscreen use had increased significantly in the appearance-video group but not in the health-video group. The appearance video delivered messages such as, “Skin damage can show up as wrinkles, dark spots, uneven skin tone, sagging skin, and rough leathery skin.” Patients learned that UVA light from the sun causes the skin damage that makes skin look older and “less attractive.” The video warned, “When you go out in the sun without sunscreen, you’re causing your skin to age faster, which might make you look older than you really are.”

The health video asked, “Did you know that having one bad sunburn in your life increases your chances of getting melanoma?” It explained that melanoma, the deadliest of skin cancers, can happen to anyone and is one of the most common cancers in young adults “like you.” Even though it’s less common in African Americans, it can happen and usually is deadly because it’s usually found too late, the video said. As melanoma “gets worse, it can spread to other organs in your body, like your liver, lungs, and brain. When it’s found too late, melanoma can kill you,” the video added.

Perhaps this would be an effective way to approach adolescents who don’t want to wear sunscreen…and perhaps some adults too!

Latisse may be the best holiday gift ever, but the big question is……DOES IT REALLY WORK?

THE ANSWER? OH YES IT DOES!

Is it possible to have longer and more beautiful eyelashes without extensions? With Latisse, the answer is Yes Yes Yes. Latisse eyelash therapy is the first and only prescription treatment FDA-approved to grow eyelashes longer, fuller and darker. The ADVANCED FACIAL PLASTIC SURGERY CENTER is pleased to offer prescriptions for Latisse which lengthens, thickens and darkens eyelashes. Latisse is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat hypotrichosis which is the medical term for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes. In fact, we often prescribe Latisse for patients whose eyelashes have fallen out from using eyelash extensions or even chemotherapy.

The active ingredient in Latisse is bimatoprost, a medical compound involved in the health, development and re-growth of hair follicles. When dabbed daily on the lash line of the upper eyelids, our patients grow their own stunningly lush and healthy lashes as the result. Please call our office for a consultation with Dr. Bassichis to see if a prescription for Latisse is right for you! ?

Next time you are at ADVANCED, check out the fabulous fringe our office staff are enjoying….it’s lash-o-licious! ;)?

Happy Beautiful Holidays from
Drs. Michelle and Benjamin Bassichis
