Laser360iQ Is Not Your Typical Skin Laser

Laser360 is a revolutionary skin treatment which is a perfect match for anyone who refuses the idea those fine lines, wrinkles, skin discoloration, or other imperfections of the face, neck and chest are just a part of getting old. Laser360 can give you glowing youthful skin again. Many lasers designed for skin treatments concentrate on only one aspect of aging skin.
Laser360 is also a great tool for people who do not want to go “under the knife.” In just 60 days the technologies of Laser360 can take your whole countenance from tired and sagging to young and fresh. At the office of Dr. Mark Bishara and The Paragon Med Spa, we offer Laser 360 to our patients.
Laser 360 deals with the issues of aging that our patients are left with such as:

  • Skin discoloration – sun exposure can leave reddish or brown spots on the face, hands, arms, legs and even on our chest and back.
  • Rough texture – The older we get, we tend to lose a lot of our skin’s youthful smooth texture. Our skin can be appear dried out or hardened in places that can’t be covered up.
  • Increased laxity – Once collagen production slows down, our skin loses volume and starts to sag. People can develop bags under their eyes and even a slight set of jowls, which can make a person appear worn out.
  • Fine Lines or Wrinkles – Fine lines and wrinkles that accompany aging can become quite alarming. Some might notice that their wrinkles seem to deepen and lengthen almost overnight.

The signs of aging are complex and not every skin laser is right for all conditions. The best laser skin treatment is one that takes into account all of the conditions listed above. Furthermore, each laser skin treatment should be tailored according to the patient’s goals and performed by professionals trained on the device. The answer is Laser360iQ and its 4 breakthrough technologies:

  1. NIR – Deep dermal heating helps regain a healthy, youthful appearance
  2. AFT – Pulses of light even out skin color and reduce the appearance of damaged or broken blood vessels. It also helps to erase other color irregularities in your skin.
  3. Pixel Er:YAG – Precision laser technology creates thousands of microscopic perforations and stimulates new collagen to improve your skin’s texture and tone and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.

It’s important to ask questions about any skin treatment and cosmetic laser procedures are no exception. Consider these questions:
1.)  Do you look in the mirror and look older than you feel?
2.)  Are you spending too much money on topical creams that don’t seem to help?
3.)  Does your skin appear saggy in places where it used to be firm?
4.)  Are you noticing more fine lines and wrinkles than you used to?
5.)  Do you see more signs of aging on your forehead, cheeks, around your eyes, upper lip or neck?
6.)  Do you notice sun damage, age spots or other unsightly discoloration?
7.)  Do you want to revitalize your appearance without having surgery?
If you have answered yes to more than one of the above questions, our Laser360 can help you regain your youghful glow. It may seem like any skin treatment or any laser procedure is the right course of action. This is not the case.

So many women and men have thought of plastic surgery, but decide not to go through with it because aesthetic surgery procedures have a longer recovery time. While some people may be able to schedule a vacation to accommodate the time they’ll need recovering from a facelift, others simply can’t fit several weeks of recovery into their schedule. For these folks, “lunch hour “plastic surgery” can be a godsend.  Dr. Mark Bishara and The Paragon Med Spa offer effective cosmetic procedures to help patients restore or achieve their ideal appearance, in order to feel confident about the way they look.
For anyone who is wanting to defy the aging process, Dr. Bishara offers a new procedure- The Lunch-Hour Facelift. This new high-tech procedure erases wrinkles in 60 minutes with lasers and injections, rather than a surgeon knife.

Traditional Facelift VS. Lunch-Hour Facelift

The conventional facelift is a surgical operation that requires an incision(s), that are placed along the hairline. Next, the surgeon may redistribute fatty tissue, modify the underlying musculature, and re-drape the skin. Lunch-hour facelifts are less invasive and involve several small nonsurgical procedures. These may include Botox injections, laser skin resurfacing, and dermal filler injections. The procedure can also be performed in under an hour with no down time.
Most often, individuals visit a plastic surgeons or dermatologist’s office for an injection of Botox or soft tissue fillers.  Botox works by paralyzing certain muscles in the face that cause wrinkling, while soft tissue fillers can fill in wrinkles or add volume to facial features. What makes these procedures special is that they can be performed in just about an hour – on a lunch break, for example.

Ideal candidate for this procedure:

Traditional surgical facelift are usually more suited for people in their mid-forties and older, but the lunch-hour facelift procedures are targeting men and women in their 30s and above.  The desire is to address and treat the first signs of fine lines and wrinkles as soon as they appear. Dr. Bishara’s unique treatments offer patients effective results through the most minimally invasive techniques.

Is this procedure worth it?

Some people may be discouraged by the idea of Botox, fillers and laser treatments, likely because of rumors that claim injections don’t offer real, long-lasting results. However, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) states that results from Botox and fillers can last for several months, and the procedure is not only a way to reduce wrinkles that have already formed but also prevent new ones from appearing on the face. For these reasons, Botox was once again the most popular non-surgical procedure in 2012, with doctors performing more than 4 million injections. Laser skin treatments also help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars and various other texture concerns.
The lunch-time facelift is effective because it encourages new collagen growth, fills in fine lines and wrinkles, and gives the skin a more youthful look that is still subtle and natural.  Patients fine lines and wrinkles will begin to disappear and their skin will be tighter. The lunch-hour facelift does not completely erase deep wrinkles.  A traditional facelift would correct that.

The lunch-time facelift has been growing in popularity due to patients opting for less invasive procedures that are also cheaper and less intense. While the days of traditional facelifts are far from over, increasingly more patients have been opting for this non-invasive feature that fits easily into their busy lives. Whether your looking for a lunch-time facelift or traditional facelift, we can help.  Dr. Bishara provides a wide range of cosmetic procedures to help patients look and feel their best. These procedures are designed to improve the appearance of the face and body through minimally invasive techniques that provide highly effective results. Please call us for questions and more information at (817) 473-2120.

As if looking old wasn’t bad enough, a new study found that people find it difficult to read the emotions of individuals who have wrinkly faces. Researchers at Penn State University asked a group of study participants to examine 64 faces and rate them based on the emotions they perceived in the images. On average, pictures depicting older adults were rated as more angry or sad compared to the photos of younger people, despite the fact that every face photographed showed neutral emotions.
At Dr. Mark Bishara‘s office we provide a wide range of cosmetic procedures to help patients look and feel their best. These procedures are designed to improve the appearance of the face through minimally invasive techniques that provide highly effective results.
Why the Long Face?
The issue may be due to the fact that creases around the mouth and forehead may cause people to look as though they’re frowning or upset. There needs to be more research conducted to verify their findings, but they believe the results of the study are not due to stereotypes people may have about the emotional well-being of older adults.
This is not the first study to examine the link between wrinkles and emotional perception. A previous study conducted by researchers at Humboldt University in Berlin found that younger people had a hard time judging the faces of older adults, and often perceived them to have more “mixed emotions” than similar images of younger people.
An Argument for Plastic Surgery
This study goes to show that people who seek out plastic surgery procedures such as facelifts or Botox injections and facial fillers, aren’t doing so simply out of vanity. There are real issues associated with early signs of aging. Researchers pointed out that the issue underscored in this most recent study could put older adults at a disadvantage at the doctor’s office, for instance, as medical practitioners may falsely assume that seniors are experiencing sadness or depression.
Fortunately, there are many treatments that Dr. Bishara offers that can help treat wrinkles on the face and neck. Many of these procedures can be combined in order to achieve your desired appearance. While facelifts may be the most well-known, others may choose to target the skin hanging down under the chin by undergoing a neck lift. Also, Botox injections can treat wrinkles before they begin to form, while facial fillers can add volume and fill in deep creases around the eyes, mouth and forehead.  Our Paragon Skin Clinic offers many other skin treatments that can fight the signs of aging and help skin show a more youthful apperance, including fotofacials, Laser 360 and laser skin resurfacing.

Allure Magazine may not be the most scientific of publications, but when it comes to beauty, it knows its stuff. That’s why its recent survey about aging and good looks is getting quite a bit of attention. The magazine polled 2,000 people from across the U.S. on the topic. Let’s take a look at some of findings.
What a woman wants
Not surprisingly, the study found that aging is harder for women than men. This was demonstrated in two different ways – first, when respondents were asked what words they associated with gray hair, the No. 1 answer was “old” when talking about women. When the same question was asked about men with gray hair, the top answer was “distinguished.”
Furthermore, when asked which sex had more pressure to look young, 91 percent of female respondents and 84 percent of male respondents agreed women had it harder. Additionally, while only 34 percent of men indicated they’re concerned about the physical signs of aging, a full 56 percent of female participants said they were worried about wrinkles and graying hair.
Doing something about it
The study also found that women are more likely to seek out the help of a board-certified plastic surgeon to deal with their aging woes. Around 42 percent of female respondents said they’d consider plastic surgery or anti-aging injections like Botox soft tissue fillers. Only 18 percent of men said the same.
