Mother’s Day is May 10th and right around the corner! Keep in mind, JPSC has gift certificates which can be redeemed for Dr. Sykes’ services, Mary’s fantastic facials, and our great products.
It’s not too early to think about the beach. Do you have a stubborn spot you just can’t get rid of no matter how hard you diet and exercise? Ask us about Liposonix. Lose one inch in one hour with one treatment! Call our office to schedule your consultation.
Mary, our wonderful aesthetician, has begun doing dermaplaning. This is generally performed on a monthly basis, as a complement to facials or as a stand-alone treatment. It involves the use of a surgical scalpel, and the fine “vellus” hairs of the face and neck are gently removed. This also thoroughly exfoliates the face, yielding a healthy glow. In so doing, it also removes dead skin cells, which can act as a barrier to rejuvenative products, such as ZO or Skin Better Science. You will love the results!
In response to an increasing number of inquiries over the past few years, I have begun to perform labiaplasty, or feminine genital surgery. This procedure is generally requested for people who feel they have an excess of tissue in the genital area, which may cause problems with clothing, hygiene, sexual function, or just simply discomfort with appearance.
There is a lot of discussion these days about breast implants. Are they safe? Can they cause cancer? Can they make you sick?
At this time, there is a known but very rare form of cancer that has been associated primarily with textured breast implants (Biocell). The plastic surgery society (ASPS) is carefully reviewing this data along with the FDA. Currently, their recommendations are that your implants are fine if you have no symptoms.
There are also people who feel their breast implants are making them ill. One name for it is “Breast Implant Illness.” In these cases, removal of the implants can relieve the patient’s symptoms about 50% of the time.
Our office offers the benefits of red light and yellow light treatments. These are painless, 20-minute treatments which stimulate the production of collagen and elastin and help to restore your skin’s youthful appearance. The yellow light also helps to reduce inflammation. They are done in a series of treatments. These treatments also work very well as a gentle way to help reduce acne and improve skin health in younger patients.
We are happy to be offering a new procedure: Micro-needling of the face and body. Our new “Skin Pen” is the first FDA- approved device for micro-needling (collagen induction). It can be used to stimulate collagen rebuilding for facial rejuvenation, fine lines and wrinkles, and can also be used on hands, scars, stretch marks and more.
Our patients speak for themselves about the value of our ThermiVa treatments. One said, “I threw away my pads.” Our patients are repeating treatments as maintenance. It is clear that the improvement in stress incontinence as well as feminine moisture are of great benefit to them.
EMSCULPT is amazing! It really does help to both build muscle and reduce fat. It is easy, kind of like going to the gym without breaking a sweat. It works its magic on the abdomen, the buttocks, and the thighs. We now have the newer paddles, which work the upper arms and the calves.
surgery, or Labiaplasty, has been gaining in popularity and requests for this
procedure have been increasing in our practice.
We are happy to report that we are now providing this service.
Our patients have been interested in reducing excessive tissues in the genital area due to embarrassment, discomfort in clothing, desire for more symmetric appearance, etc.
This surgery involves reduction of the tissues where necessary, using surgical techniques.
Our office also offers ThermiVa, a nonsurgical series of treatments using Radiofrequency. The treatment stimulates the tissues to become more youthful, with better moisture and blood supply. This can aid in sexual function, as well as help with stress urinary incontinence. It can also reduce to some degree some of the excess external tissue and provide some tightening.
