The area of under-eye and upper eyelid is one of the first places to show age. The skin of this area is thinner, there is less volume below the skin in this area and to make matters worse, the skin around the eyes is very sensitive.  Loss of fat below the skin and loss of skin thickness and elasticity in this area are what lead to aging eye with  fine lines, wrinkles, poor texture and development of under eye hollows. For deeper under eye hollows, most individuals will likely need a small amount of carefully placed HA dermal filler along with any other treatment best suited to improve skin firmness and tightness of this area. Fine lines, wrinkles and poor texture of mild to moderate severity around the eyes is best treated with DOT CO2 fractional laser resurfacing in our Dallas office. We now combine all laser and radiofrequency treatments with your PRP for enhanced results, quicker recovery and less downtime.

Individual results may vary.

Microneedle Fractional Radiofrequency skin tightening treatments (examples in US Infini and Fractora) are the most effective, safe and easy way to get firmer, tighter and smoother skin without invasive surgery. Our state of art system (similar to Intracel) uses gold plated, insulated needles to deliver fractional radio frequency with options of Bi-polar or Monopolar modes, precisely, deep into the dermis without damaging epidermis for immediate visible improvement and long-lasting results.

Most patients experience minimal to no discomfort and little to no downtime. Topical numbing crème is applied to the skin before the treatment and a cooling tip is used immediately afterward to reduce mild swelling and redness associated with the treatment.

DALLAS-MICRONEEDLE RF-NAILAMALIKMD.jpgNONSURGICAL-SKIN TIGHTENING-C-DALLAS-NAILAMALIKMD-RS.jpgNonsurgical skin tightening is a type of treatment requested by a very large number of our patients. Most common areas of face and neck consulted for non-surgical skin tightening treatment in our practice are; skin around the eyes, skin around the mouth, jowls/pre-jowls, and skin under the chin.

I have been following the latest advancements in non-surgical cosmetic medicine and searching for a treatment option that can effectively tighten these areas without the downtime and pain associated with some of the treatments for a long time. Unfortunately I have seen many widely advertised aesthetic treatments and machines that promise big results but fail to deliver their promise.

My search for non-surgical skin tightening treatment led me to a very interesting set of articles which showed promise with the new delivery method of an old and well known treatment, the radiofrequency treatment,. The radiofrequency treatment has been around in medicine for a number of years for various applications. RF was FDA approved for skin tightening in 2012 as Thermage. I did not introduce Thermage to our practice because of the reviews of this treatment and unimpressive results.

Laser hair reduction is a process of permanent hair reduction with the use of lasers and intense pulsed light devices specific for destroying hair follicles. By targeting the dark pigment in hair follicles, lasers and light based devices such as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) are able to instantly and permanently destroy the follicles. Because other follicles can grow hair later, this process is called “hair reduction” rather than hair removal. When performed properly, it can provide smooth, attractive results on the face, neck, chest, breast, back, arms, underarms, legs and bikini area. Each treatment with the hair reduction laser or light based device destroys between 10-20% of hair follicles, mostly targeting hair follicles in active hair growth cycle which varies from person to person and within the same individual due to several factors; genetics, hormone levels, recent major illness, stress, recent child birth etc. Minimum of six sessions are recommended to achieve adequate hair reduction followed by periodic maintenance. Dark skin individuals may need a higher number of sessions due to lower energy treatments to protect the pigment in the skin surface.

Our laser hair removal treatment is sold as a package of six sessions for improved results. Some individuals may need more than six sessions due to genetics, hormonal or other factors which make hair less susceptible to hair reduction with lasers and IPL.

AFT_Fotofacial-Dallas_1.jpgIPL fotofacial with the new AFT (Advanced Fluorescence Technology) is the next generation of intense pulsed light treatments in cosmetic dermatology. The IPL (intense Pulsed Light) with AFT takes short-wavelength light and converts it into part of the usable spectrum through a special filtering system. This new advancement in the clinically proven IPL technology increases light emission and penetration, for safer and more effective treatments than the older version of IPL systems. To you, this means better results with fewer skin burns and less pain!

IPL fotofacial is an ideal treatment for sun spots, redness, rosacea prone skin. Three to four sessions, two to three weeks apart are recommended for best results.

No downtime, minimal discomfort.
