My first Jeuveau patients!

· Neurotoxin (Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau and Xeomin) · Comments Off on My first Jeuveau patients!

Pictured are Stephanie Lee, MD (right), a long-time patient, who brought her friend Soo Han, MD. 

Stephanie, who has tried Botox and Dysport previously, came in for a neurotoxin treatment.  I asked if she had heard about Jeuveau.  After I shared the story of the newest toxin to be introduced in nearly a decade, she wanted to be my first patient.

I told her what I learned at the physician advisory meeting* earlier this month.  Jeuveau is made in Korea exclusively for Evolus and it is distributed by Evolus in the USA.

Both ladies were excited to try something new.  They also mentioned that people in Korea are much more likely to start toxin treatments in their 20s, so this new approach to marketing to the young is the way to go.

More Beautiful Lips with Vollure and Volbella

· Fillers · Comments Off on More Beautiful Lips with Vollure and Volbella

My patient, who is in her 60s, wanted to get rid of the lines above her lips and also add volume to her upper lip.

To reduce the “lipstick lines” above her lip, I used Volbella.
In her lip, I used Vollure.

Vollure provides subtle, natural volume and is more spreadable – it can be smoothed out to exactly where you need it.

Vollure for Beautiful Lips

· Fillers · Comments Off on Vollure for Beautiful Lips

It makes my day to receive messages like this!

One syringe of Vollure is all it took to take these great lips to gorgeous.

This photo was taken 7 hours after the procedure.

When you are planning to have filler, stop taking blood thinners one week before your appointment to avoid bruising and bleeding. Things to avoid include: alcohol, aspirin, ibuprofen (any NSAID), vitamin E or fish oil (any omega-3).

Silhouette InstaLift

· Threads · Comments Off on Silhouette InstaLift


Our latest cosmetic treatment at Dermatology Boutique is Silhouette InstaLift.  It uses micro-suspension technology to provide you with an immediate lift and gradually restore lost facial volume in the mid-face by triggering your own collagen production.  And it lasts up to 2 years!

In this video, you see a snippet of the procedure which takes about 45 minutes.  First, Mylene was given a local anesthetic—that’s why she doesn’t feel a thing.  Also, you’ll see dark spots on her face where I marked insertion and exit points for the polymer sutures.

Silhouette InstaLift is FDA-cleared and made from a well-known polymer that is frequently used in medical devices and is well tolerated by the body.

Treatment pricing varies depending on the patient’s needs and the number of sutures required. The average range is $850 to $2,500.

Are you a candidate for an InstaLift?  If you want to refresh your appearance without major surgery, injections, or lasers, this might be the new and unique technology for you to lift sagging facial skin or jowls. Suitable candidates have good skin quality, with moderate sagging of the skin in the mid-face. The skin should not be too thick/heavy or too thin.

Give me a call today to book a consultation 855-465-6621.

Treating keloids on top of ear

· Keloid (raised scar) · Comments Off on Treating keloids on top of ear

This young lady had keloids on the top of both ears, caused by piercing the upper cartilage of her ears, often called helix piercing.  Unfortunately, her body’s reaction to this piercing was to create excessive scar tissue.

As I often do, I worked on one ear first to see how her body would respond.  I surgically removed the larger of the two keloids, on her right ear (shown far left), and also gave her a Kenalog shot when she came in two weeks later to have her sutures removed.

In the “after” photo (on the right), the right ear is a little more than one month post op and she’s had one injection.

She’s so pleased with the result, she came in today to have the other keloid removed from her left ear.

Keloids result from the overproduction of collagen at the site of an injury.  Keloids cause disfigurement, but also can be painful and itchy.  Keloids have a genetic component.   The good news is that keloids do not turn into cancer.

More than one type of treatment may be necessary to get rid of a keloid.

I recommend taking steps to prevent keloids!

  • If you are considering a body piercing or a tattoo, try a test spot first, wear a pressure earring if you feel a thickening after ear piercing.
  • Tell the practitioner if you have had keloids in the past.
  • Keloids take time to appear, so wear sunscreen to prevent the skin from darkening after a wound.
  • As soon as the wound heals, use silicone sheets or gels which can prevent keloids from forming.
