Our staff and aestheticians here at Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa want to meet your  needs. Do you have a tattoo that you regret getting  or are tired of having it in a certain place? We have the solution for you. Luckily, Paragon Plastic surgery & Med Spa, located in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, has performed hundreds of cases for tattoo removal patients.

What is the process for a tattoo removal?

Results from our tattoo removal can have your tattoo fade by 95% or more over a course of multiple treatments by the use of highly precise lasers that lighten or remove your tattoo by focusing or pulsing light on the ink particles, which then convert the energy to heat and break up into tiny pieces that are absorbed by your body. Our aestheticians here at Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa recommend you visit us ever 6-8 weeks for a series of 8-10 treatments.

Does tattoo removal leave scars?

Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa has the newest lasers that leaves little to no scarring. However, it’s important to use sunscreen after treatment because the tattooed area may become discolored or infected.

How much does it cost at Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa?

Each and every patient that we see has a different tattoo shape, size, and is located on different areas on the body. We recommend you visit one of our offices, located in Mansfield, TX. or Southlake, TX., for a consultation to discuss the removal of your tattoo and pricing.

Does tattoo removal hurt?

The most common comparison of tattoo removal we use to tell our patients is the sensation of a rubber band getting snapped against your skin. You may experience m animal pain, however, it is bearable. Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa aestheticians offer numbing cream to make sure that you are comfortable when coming in for a treatment. It is our priority to not only make sure that you’re satisfied with your results, but the process as well.

The holiday season with all its parties, family gatherings, and New Year’s resolutions can be stressful for men and women of all ages because this is typically a special time when they want to look and feel their best despite all the stress frequently associated with holiday events.
Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. and his staff at The Paragon Plastic Surgery and Medspa can help each individual man or woman look and feel their best for all holiday events coming up.  Dr. Bishara takes the time to cultivate individual relationships with his patients in order to assure that they receive their desired look.  He uses the term “patient” because he says, “I feel the term patient is a more personal and appropriate term because I am working with people in personal ways.”
In his new state-of-the art facility completed in 2014, he offers the full gamut of cosmetic procedures such as robotic hair restoration, breast augmentation, tummy tuck and a variety of laser procedures. The calming music and soothing décor of his new facility create an atmosphere to ease the nerves of any anxious patient.  “Sometimes patients come in extremely nervous, and my goal is to provide a calming, relaxing environment to reduce their anticipated anxiety,” he said.  Additionally, Dr. Bishara takes the time to listen, discuss and explain all treatment options before outlining an appropriate treatment plan.
In his Paragon office in Mansfield, Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. offers “Wrinkle-Free Wednesday.”  Patients can come in for Botox and Xeomin treatments at discounted rates.  It’s easy to see why this is the most popular and busiest day of the week for Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. and his staff.  He treats hundreds of patients seeking these non-invasive, preventive procedures from 8am until 8pm.  “We go through enough Botox to remove every single wrinkle from an elephant’s skin,” he grinned, “but my goal is for them to still look like themselves,” he explained.
Also, as an AAAHC certified facility and dual trained surgeon, he can provide acute care as well as cosmetic surgical services.  His goal is to make sure that every patient’s needs are satisfactorily and effectively met.  In the spirit of giving this holiday season, Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. plans to open a combined clinic that will offer reduced rates for general surgical procedures including lumpectomy, advanced laparoscopic hernia and gallbladder procedures, and varicose vein ablation.
“The current medical system in this country is not sustainable.  Hospitals and surgery centers charging $11,000 for a 15-minute procedure is simply not feasible when it could be offered at a more reasonable price,” he said.  These large centers are sometimes bound to hold pricing high due their contracted rates with insurance companies.  As a responsible physician, he wants to provide clinical services that promote and foster a medical system that is sustainable and affordable.  That is why he has announced the addition of four advanced laparoscopic surgeons to the staff at the Paragon Surgery Center in Mansfield.  Surgical procedures are now being offered to all patients state-wide for a cash price that is often less than some deductible plans.  Although this system is intended to be cash based, some patients will still be able to submit the charges for reimbursement through their out of network benefits.
As his services continue to grow and expand, Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. has two other locations for the convenience of his patients; Southlake and North Park.
As the holiday season and the new year approach, let Dr. Bishara and his staff help you look and feel your best.  Call one of his three convenient locations at 817-473-2120 or email appointments@markbisharamd.com to make an appointment and ensure that you enjoy the holidays knowing that you truly look your best!

Cosmetic Procedures- Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Today’s lasers can diminish many signs of aging — from early wrinkles and age spots to deep lines and spider veins. A laser procedure often can be performed in less than an hour and may require little or no downtime.
Also Called
Numerous lasers and light devices are used to rejuvenate the skin. These devices are generally grouped into the following categories:

  • Non-ablative laser rejuvenation – No downtime. Best for early signs of aging.
  • Intense pulsed light (IPL) – Not a laser, this light therapy penetrates deeper into the skin than a non-ablative laser. IPL does not injure the surface of the skin, so there is usually no downtime. IPL can improve skin texture and color as well as reduce pore size.
  • Photodynamic therapy (PDT) – This is a two-step procedure. First, a solution that makes the skin more sensitive to light is applied and left on for 30 minutes or longer. Then light from the laser or other source is beamed onto the treated area. Downtime is minimal. PDT decreases redness, reduces age spots and freckles, and improves the overall texture and appearance of the skin.
  • Fractional laser rejuvenation – Offers deeper rejuvenation. Recovery time is short. Best for diminishing signs of aging such as age spots, wrinkles, and skin discoloration.
  • Ablative laser resurfacing – Heats the skin to cause a visible wound, which means some downtime for recovery. Effective for deeper wrinkles and diminishing aging caused by years of unprotected sun exposure. A type of laser called a fractional ablative laser causes no visible wounds. Fractional ablative laser resurfacing requires less downtime than ablative laser resurfacing.

Signs of Aging Treated
Lasers and other light-based devices are used to treat these concerns:

  • Age (sun) spots
  • Dark circles under the eye
  • Dry, dull skin
  • Fine lines
  • Freckles
  • Hand rejuvenation (age spots, loose skin, and lines)
  • Melasma
  • Redness and flushing
  • Scars
  • Seborrheic keratoses (flat only)
  • Skin texture (treats roughness)
  • Skin tone (treats mottled complexion and skin discoloration)
  • Spider veins
  • Stretch marks
  • Tattoos (removal)
  • Unwanted hair
  • Varicose veins
  • Wrinkles

When Do You See Results from Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Improvement is gradual. It may take several months to see the full effects. When a laser that does not require downtime is used, a series of treatments may be necessary to see the desired results. The number of treatments varies from person to person; however, between 3 and 6 treatments is the norm.
Research shows that laser rejuvenation can dramatically reduce fine lines around the eyes and mouth and on the cheeks. With 1 treatment, age spots can be diminished by 50% and may be completely eliminated with follow-up treatments. Laser skin resurfacing can significantly reduce deep lines, effectively remove some shallow scars, and tighten the skin.
While lasers may sound like magic wands, they are not. It is important to have realistic expectations. Laser skin rejuvenation can be effective, but does not work for everyone.
Some skin tightening is possible, but lasers cannot produce the same degree of lifting seen after a surgical facelift or eyelid lift. Wrinkles caused by constant muscle movement such as frown lines can be hard to treat with lasers alone. Another procedure such as botulinum rejuvenation may be used along with a laser to obtain the desired results.
How Long Results Last
It is possible to permanently remove some signs of aging such as a spider vein, age spot, or scar. However, laser skin rejuvenation cannot stop the skin from continuing to age. Crow’s feet may re-appear and new age spots can develop. Because sun exposure accelerates signs of aging, protecting the skin from sun exposure will lengthen the amount of time that the results last. Protecting the skin from the sun also can prevent some signs of aging from re-appearing such as blotchy skin and dark patches.

La investigación muestra que el rejuvenecimiento con láser puede reducir drásticamente las líneas finas alrededor de los ojos y la boca y en las mejillas. Con 1 tratamiento, manchas de la edad pueden disminuir en un 50% y pueden ser eliminados por completo con tratamientos de seguimiento. La piel con láser puede reducir significativamente las líneas profundas, efectivamente eliminar algunas cicatrices superficiales, y tensar la piel.
Mientras que los láseres pueden sonar como varitas mágicas, no lo son. Es importante tener expectativas realistas. Rejuvenecimiento de la piel con láser puede ser eficaz, pero no funciona para todos.
Algunos estiramiento de la piel es posible, pero el láser no puede producir el mismo grado de lifting visto después de un lifting quirúrgico o cirugía de párpados. Las arrugas causadas por el movimiento muscular constante, como las líneas de expresión pueden ser difíciles de tratar con láser solo. Otro procedimiento tal como rejuvenecimiento botulínica se puede usar junto con un láser para obtener los resultados deseados.
Cómo duran los resultadosEs posible eliminar permanentemente los signos del envejecimiento, tales como arañas vasculares, manchas de la edad, o la cicatriz. Sin embargo, el rejuvenecimiento de la piel con láser no puede dejar la piel de continuar con la edad. Patas de gallo pueden volver a aparecer y nuevas manchas de la edad pueden desarrollar.

Proteger la piel del sol también puede prevenir algunos signos de envejecimiento de volver a aparecer como manchas en la piel y manchas oscuras.

Fall and winter months are a great time for laser procedures

The popularity of laser skin resurfacing is on the rise, and doctors say that winter is a great time to undergo these procedures.
It’s very important to avoid the sun as much as possible and it’s a lot easier to do that in the winter time than it is in the middle of the summer.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the number of laser skin resurfacing procedures performed by its members increased by nearly 10 percent between 2009 and 2010.
The procedure uses light to repair wrinkles, sun damage and scarring.
Doing this type of fractional resurfacing improves skin texture, skin color, pore size, acne scarring, any kind of scarring issues that we may have.
At the office of Dr. Mark Bishara and The Paragon Med Spa we can discuss what type of skin resurfacing is best for you.  It’s important to note that results often take as long as several months to completely appear. However, the procedures do provide long-lasting results.
