Body-Jet Liposuction and Fat Transfer (body Contouring )

Water assisted liposuction, often referred to as water lipo or H2O lipo by plastic surgeons and patients alike, is the latest in liposculpting technology. It can be applied to multiple areas of the body during the same session, and after the procedure you can almost immediately see the results of the loss of fat with the smoothed skin contour you are desiring. For more information on how the Body-Jet process can further benefit you, see our Natural Breast Augmentation service.

Natural Breast Augmentation

Increase your breast size and slim down your mid-section at the same time? How many times have you heard women say: “I wish I could take fat out of here (pointing to an unwanted fat deposition such as the lower abdomen or hips), and put it here” (indicating their breasts)? NOW YOU CAN!

Do you want to increase your breast size and slim down your mid-section at the same time? How many times have you heard women say: “I wish I could take fat out of here (pointing to an unwanted fat deposition such as the lower abdomen or hips), and put it here” (indicating their breasts)? NOW YOU CAN!

Dr. Clark, who served as the Director of the Diagnostic Breast Center for four years, was the first to perform and remains the only physician in the bi-state area to offer the Natural Breast Augmentation procedure. Many women don’t like the appearance, feel or thought of synthetic implants but would like to restore or enhance their breasts appearance and the use of Natural Fat Transfer, accomplished in conjunction with the Body-Jet Liposculpting procedure. The Body-Jet, unlike other forms of liposuction, maintains the viability of the removed fat allowing it to be successfully transferred to the breasts to create a completely natural augmentation. As the fat is typically obtained from areas that were resistant to losing weight, this fat which is less metabolically active, is ideally suited for this procedure as it is less likely to change with future fluctuations in weight.

Unlike implants, which need to be replaced every 10 years and associated with the risks as well as expense of numerous surgeries, Natural Breast Augmentation is performed under local anesthesia and maintains the viability of the vast majority of the transferred fat, giving long-lasting natural appearing cosmetic results.

Although there is no evidence that fat transfer to the breast is less safe than any other breast augmentation surgery or impairs the future detection of breast cancer, Annual clinical breast examinations by a qualified medical professional as well as mammograms are recommended following the procedure. Additionally, a baseline mammogram should be obtained prior to having the procedure performed.

The best candidates for breast augmentation with fat transfer are those who want a moderate increase or are looking to restore lost breast volume or patients who already have implants that do not have an anatomically normal appearance.
1.Performed under local anesthesia. Patient remains awake during the procedure.
2. Looks and Feels very natural.
3. Excellent for those who have reservations about saline or silicone gel breast implants.
4. Does not require multiple procedures over the life of the patient
5. Fat is completely natural substance that comes from your own body
6. There are minimal incisions with this procedure, which reduces the possibility of scarring
7. Fat transfer can also be used to disguise breast implants that do not look natural
8. As fat transfer does not involve open incisions, there is less risk in terms of damage to nerves, blood vessels, and ducts than in open surgery.

As their name implies, fillers are used to “fill in” lines and wrinkles. They can also be used to fill and lift areas of lost tissue volume, such as the cheekbones. Fillers differ from one another in their chemical composition and duration of correction. Their main purpose is to add volume to specific areas, in order to eliminate wrinkles such as crow’s feet or enhance a feature such as cheeks and lips. Cosmetic dermal fillers are also used to reduce gauntness caused by illness or aging. We have several options for fillers, including Natural fat transfer. See Our Products for more information on Fillers.

Shower and exfoliate your entire body before a tanning session.
DO NOT use moisturizer until after your post-tanning shower. Lotions can act as a barrier and prevent the solution from contacting the skin. The same applies to the face and makeup.
Wear a dark colored bathing suit or your garment of your preference to tan in. The solution washes out of most clothing very easily, but tends to stain silk, light nylon materials, and wool. Bring loose clothing and sandals to your appointment. Tight fitting clothing will prevent the tanning solution from setting in.
Wait at least 6 hours before showering after your tanning session. You need to allow enough time for the reaction to take place, the longer the better.
Apply moisturizer, morning and evening, after your post-tanning shower. Hydrated skin maintains a longer life to your tan.

Maintaining Your Tan
Your skin type affects how often you need to tan. Dryer skin exfoliates faster, so hydrating with lotion between sessions is essential to keep your tan alive.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moist-urize. Schedule regular tanning sessions.
DO NOT sit directly on leather or light fabric seats and furniture after your tanning session. Sit on a towel or cloth instead.
Taking long hot baths or soaking in the pool can accelerate exfoliation and fade your tan.
Do not exercise immediately following your tanning session. Excessive perspiration can affect the tanning process and the end result of your tan.
DO NOT use lotions with AlphaHydroxy Acids; their purpose is to increase exfoliation. Know that their use will accelerate the fading process of your tan.
Post-tan shower: If you have had an application with bronzer, you will see color washing off in the first time you shower. DO NOT be alarmed; this is just the surface color that was applied. Your skin will continue to tan as the self-tan reaction occurs on your skin.

Laser Resurfacing

If aging, acne, or too much time in the sun has left your face with blotches, scars, wrinkles, or lines, laser skin resurfacing may help your skin look younger and healthier.

Laser skin resurfacing removes skin layer by layer with precision. The new skin cells that form during healing give the skin a tighter, younger looking surface. The procedure can be done alone or with other cosmetic surgeries on the face. Schedule an appointment to learn more about our offerings.

CO2 Fractionated laser

The CO2 laser is a carbon dioxide laser used in skin resurfacing. Its effects are similar to those of chemical peels and dermabrasion, except that the laser removes skin layers by vaporization rather than with chemicals or a sanding device.

Our treatment specialist specifies the amount of energy transmitted to the skin’s surface by the laser beam and control the depth of penetration. The CO2 laser system can be used in several ways: “focused” for cutting skin without bleeding, “defocused” for superficially removing your skin, and “ultra pulsed” for facial resurfacing. When the CO2 laser is delivering powerful, rapid pulses, your doctor is able to resurface the skin for cosmetic improvement.

The CO2 laser is commonly used to treat wrinkles, blotchiness or age spots, and scars from acne or other causes. It can be used on the entire face or specific areas. Certain other characteristics of your skin, such as its thickness and texture, may influence whether you are a good candidate for laser resurfacing. Some patients may benefit from the laser’s mild “tightening” effect on the skin, particularly in the lower eyelid area where the skin often becomes somewhat loose as a result of aging.

Chemical Peels

What is a Chemical Peel
Chemical Peels are powerful yet non-damaging chemical that helps fight the effects of time, sun damage, and environmental assaults. This peel can take years off aging skin in just minutes. Chemical Peels are the only superficial peel suitable for all skin tones and complexions. This special formulation includes a unique blend of peeling agents: alpha-hydroxy acids, beta-hydroxy acids, resorcinol, and retinoic acid (obtained by physicians only). While results are predictable and noticeable after just one peel, dramatic results are seen after a series of peels. This is a highly effective rejuvenation procedure with no downtime.

How does a Chemical Peel work?
Chemical Peels use a unique blend of safe but effective acids to cause chemical exfoliation of the epidermis, or outer layer of the skin. Skin regeneration following this chemical peel results in a fresh, organized, healthy epidermis. The result is a smoother and more even complexion and an improvement in pigment changes.

What are Chemical Peels used for?
The Chemical Peel improves the skin’s overall appearance, decreasing fine line wrinkles and restoring even skin tones. A Chemical peel evens out acne scarring and is particularly effective in combination with other treatments such as Laser Genesis. Chemical peels are effective for pigment changes caused by acne scarring, photodamage (sun damage), “age spots”, freckles, melasma (from hormone changes), and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Chemical peels tighten pores, improves skin texture, and smoothes ruddy complexions.

What will my skin feel like during and after my Chemical peel?
During your Chemical peel, you will experience a warm, tingling sensation. This procedure is quite tolerable and requires no pre-medication. After your peel, you may continue to experience mild tingling.

How long after my Chemical Peel may I return to normal activities?
You may return to normal activities immediately following your Chemical peel. You may experience mild redness or tingling following your peel. One to three days following your procedure you will notice mild to moderate peeling of the skin that can be concealed with the use of a moisturizer. This peeling is essentially unnoticeable by others. Chemical peels are a rejuvenation procedure with no downtime.

How many Chemical Peels will it take to get a great result?
The number of treatments needed depends upon the problem being addressed but usually ranges from three to six treatments spaced two to four weeks apart. Results are generally seen after just one treatment, but a series of treatments is required for optimum results. Depending on the concern being addressed, your provider may recommend other treatments in conjunction with your Chemical peel, such as Laser Genesis, which may be alternated with your peel if needed.

How long will my Chemical Peel results last?
The changes that occur in the epidermis following a chemical peel last for years, and may even be permanent. In order to maintain your results, it is critical to avoid sun damage. In the case of acne scarring, it is necessary to control further acne breakouts in order to avoid further skin disruption. Hormonal changes, sun damage and further acne breakouts may cause new pigment changes or scarring that may require repeat treatments with Chemical peels alone or in combination with other treatments.

How long does the Chemical Peel take?
Chemical peels of the face is generally performed in less than twenty minutes.

Virtually everyone, at one point in their lives has suffered from unwanted hair.

Our hair removal procedures are tailored to the customer’s individual skin and hair types. Modern Dermatology and Aesthetics offers patients the most effective solution for Hair Removal from the face and body.

How Laser Hair Removal Works ?
Laser treatment targets the dark color of the melanin pigment in the hair follicle. Thus, the root of the hair is compromised with little effect on the skin and surrounding tissue. Since melanin is only produced during the growth phase, the laser light must target the hair follicle during the appropriate portion of cycle. Even in one given body part, not all follicles are in the growth phase of the cycle at the same time. Thus, these treatments need to be repeated at strategically spaced intervals over the course of the hair cycles. This assures us of subsequent hair growth prevention and that the hair follicles are disabled. The laser hair removal procedures at Ideal Image not only remove hair above the skin, but additionally makes sure you no longer see the dark hairs beneath the skin’s surface, sometimes known as the five o’ clock shadow.
