Skin Care in your 40’s and 50’s

Skin care in your 40s and 50s

Wrinkle creams, eye serums, and other anti-aging skin care products can help diminish signs of aging. To create a truly effective anti-aging skin care plan, however, it helps to start with healthy skin care habits.

  1. Full Body Check for precancerous/ cancerous lesions
  2. Benign lesions for cosmetic removal
  3. Hormone and Lipid evaluation
  4. Hair and Nail analysis
  5. Nutritional analysis
  6. Vitamin D testing and supplementation
  7. Program to reverse sun damage, rejuvenate the surface and provide volume where needed to prevent sagging
  8. Botox/Dysport to help soften wrinkles
  9. Juvederm/Restylane to help provide volume and smooth wrinkles
  10. PRP/ Platelet Rich Plasma to rejuvenate your skin naturally

The benefits of healthy skin care habits include:

  • Prevent (or clear up) a blotchy complexion
  • Retain skin’s youthful firmness longer
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Keep complexion looking brighter and younger
  • Avoid leathery skin
  • Reduce skin cancer risk

Exciting news for hollow temples!

Sharon J. Littzi’s Juvederm Tips – Filling Hollow Temples

Have you ever noticed how our faces change in photographs as we age? In our youth, the face is typically rounder, fuller and has the tissue volume we associate with youth. As we age, the face loses fat and tissue volume, and tends to look thinner, more angular and more gaunt, especially in people who are athletic, lean or have low body fat percentages. Also, as we age we don’t just lose volume, but the skin overlying the fat and tissue loses elasticity and sags. This can create accentuated cheekbones and hollowness in the temples and in front of the ears.

Fortunately, this problem is quickly and easily treated using a hyaluronic acid filler like Juvederm. Numbing is not usually necessary prior to this treatment , as there is minimal discomfort associated with it. Fillers like Juvederm XC, which has the anesthetic Lidocaine formulated right in it, can add an additional measure of comfort.

When I fill hollow temples with Juvederm, I place the product deep in the tissue right atop the bone to avoid any issues with inadvertent injection into a blood vessel and to provide maximum lift and fill. This is especially important in this area because the temporal artery courses through this area. When placed deeply in this type of filler injection, the product pushes up the overlying tissue and nicely corrects the hollowness without any lumps or bumps. Oftentimes, the product is not even detectable visually and is not palpable.

Depending upon the amount of hollowness, it may often take one full syringe of product per temple for an adequate correction. However, sometimes the correction of temporal hollows is best done in stages, whereby you inject half a syringe per temple and wait a few days for any swelling or distortion to subside before deciding that more filler is needed. This way, there is less chance of “overcorrection”, or injecting too much product than is necessary.

Dr. Littzi can evaluate your unique facial anatomy and use her experience to give you the best results possible. Call 203-966-2336 today for a consultation; most patients can be treated with Botox or Juvederm the same day. Be sure and join Allergan’s Brilliant Distinctions program; it is a rewards program where you can earn points for all your Botox and Juvederm treatments, and you can use the points to generate money-saving coupons for future visits.

PRP for Hair Loss

PRP – Hair Restoration for Men and Women

Sharon Littzi, M.D. performs PRP therapy for male and female patients experiencing hair loss. PRP is an exciting non-surgical option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions.

HOW DOES PRP WORK?

PRP therapy has established itself to be effective as a medical treatment modality in the specialty fields of oral surgery, neurosurgery, plastic and cosmetic surgery, sports medicine and orthopedics. PRP is a promising non-surgical therapeutic option for those patients with hair loss.

HOW DO YOU PERFORM THE PROCEDURE?

The PRP (Platelet rich plasma) is part of your blood and is specially prepared by spinning down the blood cells to a high concentration. The highly concentrated PRP is prepared then injected into the scalp. The patient’s hair is then washed and the patient may drive home without any assistance. No sedation or medication is given during the procedure.

IS PRP FOR ME?

PRP is safe and natural because the procedure concentrates the growth factors containing cells from your blood and inject them directly back into the area where it is needed. PRP should not be considered a “cure” for hair loss and no guarantee can be made about its individual effectiveness. No claim of PRP efficacy in promoting hair growth can be made because there is no FDA approval that would allow such claims to be made.

CAN I USE OTHER MEDICAL THERAPIES?

Absolutely. In fact, we encourage it and prescribe PRP therapy as a compliment to a nonsurgical approach for those patients who are not eligible for surgery or who want to delay hair restoration surgery. PRP can be combined with placenta, stem cell protein matrix or other nutrients to improve outcomes. In addition, we have a full line of topical nutraceuticals for hair loss.
