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 to make an appointment and ensure that you enjoy the holidays knowing that you truly look your best!

Laser 360

Facial Treatments | Dallas TX | Mansfield TXLaser360™ is a skin treatment for anyone who would like to revitalize their look without invasive procedures or injections. You no longer have to accept fine lines and wrinkles or skin discoloration as an inevitable part of the aging process.

Laser 360 – What You Can Expect

Using 3 cutting-edge technologies, Laser360 is a non-invasive, comfortable procedure that provides lasting results in just 60 days through a series of office visits. These skin tightening treatments are safe, comfortable and effective without surgery or down time.
It can be used on any skin type, and you are free to return to normal activities immediately after each session.

How Does Laser 360 Skin Care Therapy Work?

Laser360 uses three technologies to provide complete skin rejuvenation:

  1. AFT intense pulsed light for color
    Pulses of light even out your skin color and reduce tiny broken blood vessels and other color irregularities.
  2. Near-infrared for tightness
    Deep heating helps firms up any loose skin so you regain a more youthful, contoured appearance.
  3. Pixel® for texture and tone
    This precision laser creates thousands of microscopic perforations, which stimulate new collagen to grow. The new collagen improves your skin’s texture and tone to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The skin around each of these perforations remains intact, which allows the skin’s top layer to heal from the edge of these tiny holes very rapidly.

Each technology is delivered through a simple handpiece that is placed against your skin. The treated area will gradually rejuvenate over the course of your customized treatment plan.

According to an opinion piece published in JAMA Dermatology, when considering the appropriate ages for aesthetic procedures, the question isn’t so much “What age is too young” as it is “What age is too old?”

In that edition’s Viewpoint feature, the authors write that deeply-etched facial lines that develop as patients age “are caused by repeated folding of the skin and include lines of facial expression and sleep lines,” and that in young adulthood these lines predict “the unique pattern of facial wrinkling that will be seen without expression years later.”
Regular treatment with a neuromodulator when patients are in their 20s or 30s will minimize etched facial lines by the time they’re in their 40s and 60s. They cite the case of identical 38-year-old twin sisters. One began regular botulinum toxin (Botox) injections in the forehead and glabella when she was 25, while the other got injections in the same areas just twice over seven years. They write that while lines glabella and forehead lines were visible at rest, they were not visible in the regularly treated twin four months after her last treatment.
“This observation suggests that regular treatment with a neurotoxin, beginning in young adulthood, can prevent the development of etched-in lines. So there really is rarely a time that is too early. Perhaps the better question is, ‘When is it too late?’”
CST Trends asked two doctors to give their opinions on the issue concerning when is “too early” to begin aesthetic treatments.
“I basically agree with the opinions of the authors but also understand the biopsychosocial implications that may be argued by those who disagree,” says Joe Niamtu III, D.M.D., a Richmond, Va., specialist in facial cosmetic surgery. “I can guarantee that you will see some negative feedback on this viewpoint article, with the opposition saying that we are creating a society of ‘plastic’ people who can’t deal with the normal process of aging … I can see both sides of the argument.”
Dr. Niamtu says he thinks the real “take-home point” of the article is that while preventive treatment can influence the future appearance of aging, “treating younger patients has positive and negative benefits that reach beyond the needle. There are clearly some patients that would benefit from treatment at a younger age and others who would suffer body-image issues if they did do it or wanted to do it and could not afford it.
“The other very important piece of this discussion is that we could not discuss this topic 20 years ago, as there were basically no fillers, neuromodulators or light- and energy-based therapies,” he adds. “I think that the current discussion will become lost in time because in another 20 years we may have easier and more effective treatments that are more effective and preventive and may be highly used by younger patients.”
Joel Schlessinger, M.D., a dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon in Omaha, Neb., concurs with the viewpoint authors.
“I agree wholeheartedly with the authors,” he says. “Sadly, most people take the opposite viewpoint, waiting until it is too late, as the authors comment, and either missing the opportunity to have a full correction or even any chance to have a significant change. On the other side of the equation, there clearly are individuals with body dysmorphic syndrome, who have no issues at all and undergo multiple surgeries in pursuit of a ‘better’ look. This is something that all dermatologists run into at one point or another.
“Overall, it is best to have a discussion with the individual and prepare a plan of action and an ongoing concept of how to diminish signs of aging over time,” Dr. Schlessinger says. “This approach is highly successful and leads to less intervention in later years and, surprisingly, less expenditure over the years.”
