Have you ever struggled to get your earrings to fit properly? Or to have your favorite pair of earrings stop drooping?

SkinCare Physicians weighs in on “filler fatigue”

Published on May 3rd, 2018 by Michael Kaminer

Let me say this plainly and succinctly…“filler fatigue” due to repeated hyaluronic acid based injections is a hoax. There is absolutely no truth to the notion that long term use of fillers causes problems with skin laxity or integrity. Cosmetic dermatologists now have nearly two decades of data on the safety and efficacy of fillers used in the United States and around the world. At SkinCare Physicians in Chestnut Hill, MA (just outside of Boston), we pride ourselves on treating patients safely with hyaluronic acid based fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, and Belotero, and importantly these treatments have been highly … Continue reading »

Exciting new approach to the treatment of upper lip lines

Published on Apr 24th, 2018 by Jeffrey Dover

Skin changes related to aging include sagging, discoloration, lack of glow and luster, and wrinkling. While some wrinkles are tolerable, vertical lip lines drive some women to distraction. These lines often remind them of their childhood when their grandmothers or great aunts’ red lipstick bled into the upper lip lines. Now they look in the mirror and see these same lines. At SkinCare Physicians, our cosmetic dermatologists have developed a comprehensive approach to improving these lip lines, including a new component to perfect the results. SkinCare Physicians’ new upper lip lines treatment Our approach includes using neuromodulators such as Botox … Continue reading »

Tired of looking tired? Treat the dark circles under your eyes

Published on Mar 27th, 2018 by Karen Kim

Patients often ask about dark circles under the eyes and what they can do to treat them. There are multiple reasons why dark circles appear and our cosmetic dermatologists at SkinCare Physicians have multiple ways to help address them. Why under eye dark circles appear As we get older, the skin generally tends to become thinner and loose. This is especially true around the eyes, leading to a tired appearance. The under eye area (also called “tear trough”) can also appear hollow and sunken due to volume loss. Finally, the under eye area can look dark because of enlarged blood vessels. Blue veins around the eyes can become more … Continue reading »

Worried about lip lines and wrinkles around your mouth?

Published on Jan 13th, 2017 by Kenneth Arndt

Upper lip lines and wrinkles, also known as perioral rhytids or smoker’s lines, are a major cosmetic feature of the lower face. A recent survey found that over 50% of women with appearance-related concerns selected the skin around the mouth as “the most likely to treat area” of the face.  Know that you don’t have to live with these lines. There is more your dermatologist can do to help than you may have thought possible.  But first let’s look at what triggers these annoying lip lines and wrinkles. The first culprits to come to mind are sun, cigarettes and straws. … Continue reading »

The recipe for creating natural results with Botox and fillers

Published on Feb 11th, 2016 by Michael Kaminer

One of the main things that patients are concerned about is an unnatural look following cosmetic treatments and injections, including Botox and fillers. For many, this risk appears to be a fear-inspiring black hole, and the concern about looking unnatural and overdone is widespread. Fortunately, skilled injectors understand what it is that makes a patient look unnatural, and more importantly are able to avoid it with some very specific techniques. Optimizing the proper dose of Botox When it comes to treatment with botulinum toxins including Botox and Dysport, the primary culprit of an unnatural result is overdosing. When Botox was … Continue reading »

Kiss that annoying double chin goodbye with a breakthrough treatment, now FDA-approved

Published on Jun 25th, 2015 by Jeffrey Dover

In one of the most exciting developments in cosmetic surgery over the last few years, we now have a highly effective FDA-approved treatment, Kybella, for what is medically known as submental fat, or more commonly referred to as a double chin. Until recently, the only approach was surgical with liposuction and or a neck/face lift. While effective, these surgical measures are associated with significant downtime. With the assistance of SkinCare Physicians dermatologists near Boston, Kythera, a California based company, has developed a simple and elegant treatment, Kybella, which improves the look of a full neck and double chin. A series of 1-4 … Continue reading »

The key to success with skin fillers: making the right choices

Published on Jan 24th, 2013 by Michael Kaminer

At the annual dermatologic surgery meeting in Atlanta last fall, I presented new data on filler techniques to improve results. Fillers can now be used on virtually any part of the face, and using them preferentially in the temple region, as well as in front of the ears, can elevate lower facial skin with beautiful and natural results. Another area that offers pleasant results using fillers is on the eyebrows, eyelids and under the eyes, as shown in the videos below. These new techniques present a significant advantage: they do not cause an overinflated or artificial look. They also avoid … Continue reading »

Should you still be afraid of unnatural BOTOX looks?

Published on Jan 2nd, 2013 by Blog Admin

“I think she’s pretty, but I don’t want to look like…” is a comment our dermatologists still hear from patients in Boston. While BOTOX has been used safely over the past 15 years in over 20 million people, many patients are afraid of the end result appearing “too plasticy,” or looking “too waxy.” This is an issue that can be seen in many current celebrities and perhaps an acquaintance or two.    The goal of natural appearing BOTOX is to temporarily relax the muscles of the face, resulting in a reduction of dynamic facial lines and wrinkles. This approach will soften … Continue reading »
