Ultherapy is a treatment we offer in-office that is FDA approved for lifting the neck, brow and area under the chin called the submentum. It also treats fine lines and wrinkles across the décolleté, “smoker’s lines” around the mouth and crows feet around the eyes. Ultherapy uses micro-focused Ultrasound to stimulate collagen production deep in the skin. Results are usually seen within three months and last up to two years. (more…)

Looking for a lift to your face without the downtime of surgery? Sounds too good to be true, but it’s not!Thursday, September 24th, 2020
Botox is probably one of the most common products that we use for facial rejuvenation. It is arguably the one of the most recognized words by people that enjoy the benefits of Botox and by those that make fun of it because they haven’t realized its full potential or they are afraid of looking “frozen” which is not usually the goal. I sometimes hear people say that they will never use Botox. I think that they may say that now, but they haven’t really started aging or they say they will embrace the wrinkles. Then people panic as they get older and want to come in for the magic wand to soften signs of aging. The problem is that now they have let the wrinkles become deeper and the creases have become more permanent so much more needs be done for correction. It may have been easier to keep the wrinkles at bay with a little sustained Botox. We do recommend that Botox be done around every 3 months for around 19 months. That way the muscles are relaxed so the wrinkles don’t re-appear and over time people may only need it every 4-6 months.
- Avoid wearing any facial foundation or make up since it will clog up pores with heat under the mask
- Wash or change your mask frequently
- Use medical grade skin care products for clean skin and to prevent mask break outs
- Create a palate of clear, clean skin by doing no downtime facial procedures during the summer
- Focus on your eyes that are seen above the mask
Men are complicated and lovely all at the same time. They want to age gracefully, but they really don’t want to grow old and we respect that. However, sometimes I hear men say that they look in the mirror and they really do not recognize who they see. The aging process affects all of us, it is just that women may be more likely to do something about it. We change our hair, nails and makeup. We look for other ways to spruce ourselves up. Men may also want to do this, but it is more on the sly. They don’t always want to share their pre-aging secrets. This is where Burgess Plastic Surgery comes into play. We provide many aesthetic services, but we can keep their secret. (more…)
How can fat be good? Don’t we spend our waking hours trying to slim down? We do CoolSculpting and liposuction, but maybe a little fat could be put to good use in other areas of the face. As we age we can lose volume in our face making us look old and gaunt. But now the magic of fat can smooth faces out and give a youthful appearance. Let’s explore the concepts of Microfat, Nanofat and Aquagold Microinfusion.
