Typically, aging is considered a privilege by many, but still, your looks might bother you when you get older. Worry no more for Dr. Wendy Long Mitchell of Manhattan dermatology in New York, is there to let you have your younger self back. She and her experienced team of dermatologists use a range of minimally invasive anti-aging therapies. These procedures restore your skin’s elasticity, radiance, and firmness. They are also able to rejuvenate your skin from both inside and outside by the use of state-of-the-art lasers and injectables.

When Should I Start Anti-aging Treatments?

You can start your treatment as long as you are 18 years and above. However, if you are still younger and have firm and resilient skin, the dermatologist will recommend that you guard your skin by using sun protection, medical-grade skincare regimens, regular facials, chemical peels, or dermabrasion.

How Can I Get Rid of Eye and Forehead Wrinkles?

The experts smooth them out using Dysport or Botox injections which are neuromodulators. These neuromodulators use a highly purified form of botulinum toxin, which prevents your facial muscles from forming creases and wrinkles. Creases and wrinkles mostly form across your forehead, also known as furrows, between your brows are called 11’s, at the top of your nose are also known as bunny lines, and at the corner of your eyes, they are known as crow’s feet. Your treatment will be re-touched after every 3-4 months.

How Can I Restore My Skin’s Tightness and Firmness?

In non-surgical anti-aging treatments, there is a range of highly effective and rejuvenating therapies that resurface your skin and stimulate it to become younger again. The specialist will recommend the most suitable method according to your needs. Among the cutting-edge lasers recommended are clear plus brilliant, sciton contour TRL, Fraxel dual, and clear plus brilliant Permea.

The laser energy penetrates to the deepest layers of your skin and stimulates it to produce new collagen and elastin. This type of treatment makes your skin tighter, smoother, less wrinkled, firmer, less scarred, and more elastic.

How Can I Make My Midface Look Youthful Again?

Normally, exercising, weight loss, and aging deplete your stores of fats, elastin, and collagen, all of which are responsible for keeping your skin resilient when young. Time also slows down the production of new collagen and elastin and also depletes your fat and collagen. The specialist restores lost facial volumes by using injectable dermal fillers. These fillers act by replenishing hyaluronic acid or stimulating the production of new elastin and collagen.

Your dermatologist may recommend Belotero, silicone, Juvederm, Restylane products, or Sculptra aesthetic. Some injectables fill out scars and wrinkles, and others like Radiesse rejuvenate aging hands.

In summary, aging can be stressful, especially if you are not comfortable with how you look. There is a wide range of therapies used to help you achieve your youthful looks, and luckily, most of them are non-invasive, thus saves you the phobia of undergoing surgical procedures. Whenever you start seeing signs of aging on your face, do not hesitate to contact the specialist to pre-rejuvenate or rejuvenate at Manhattan Dermatology. You can also book an appointment with them online.

Innovation Leads to Winning Smiles: Lebanese Dentist Dr. Mohammad Waizani Offers Insight Into the Science of Quality Veneers

Published

Dr. Mohammad Waizani has developed a reputation for giving his patients the smile they deserve. His highly-sought after veneer procedure uses a microscope for more accurate and long-lasting results. Considered highly innovative in the dentistry world, his patients’ testimonials serve as proof of the procedure’s effectiveness.

We sat down with Dr. Waizani to gather further insight into the process of applying veneers and learn more about the types of cases that benefit from this smile-saving technique. 

Are there any preconditions to receiving veneers? 

The primary condition for receiving veneers is having what we call a “normal bite.” There are many different kinds of bites, including open and closed bites. Veneers can be applied to normal bites. When we do veneers for normal bites we try to remove the minimum amount of the tooth to retain as much of the tooth’s original structure as possible. This also helps to reduce instability or sensitivity, as well as ensuring that the color will be natural and not appear fake. When you think about it, if you remove a little bit of the tooth, then the ceramic layer we place on after that can also be thin. The thinner the layers, the less fake and bulky the tooth will look. 

How does the procedure work? 

In the first session, we prepare the tooth and take measurements. This procedure takes around two hours to two and a half hours. When we finish, we put the temporary on the teeth. This offers protection from sensitivity and allows the patient to go about their daily life, and walk with a smile on their face. 

After one week, the veneers are finished in the lab and the lab sends them to our office. Once we receive the veneers, we can proceed with gluing them on. Usually we do the upper jaw alone and the lower jaw alone so the full smile needs around two weeks from start to finish. 

Where does the microscope come in and why is it so important? 

We employ microscopes in the procedure, to reduce the amount of surface enamel typically removed in the installation process. Using a microscopic approach, we are able to reduce the typical width of the removed layer from between 0.8 and 1.5 millimeters to  a mere 0.2 to 0.3 millimeters, keeping teeth stronger and healthier. The less we remove,  the less damage can occur and the teeth continue to look great for a longer period of time. 

How long do veneers last? 

Like the teeth you are born with, veneers, when properly cared for, don’t have an expiration date. As long as the patient cares for their veneers the same way they would with their natural teeth, they are a long term cosmetic solution for improving your smile while maintaining a very realistic and natural aesthetic. 

Are there any age requirements for veneers?  

We never do veneers for anyone under the age of 18. When we do veneers, or any preparation for veneers, the teeth should be fully matured so that’s why 18 and above is the perfect age. There are also the wisdom teeth to consider but that’s a different story. We don’t have to wait for wisdom teeth to apply veneers. 

What are some of the reasons your patients choose to receive veneers? 

There are three overarching cases where we recommend veneers: shape, color, or both. Some people have a good shape to their face and jaw, but they don’t like the color of their teeth or vice versa. In some cases it is both the color and shape that the patient wants to improve. If they have a normal bite and we just want to change the color, we will remove a minimal amount of the tooth. If we have a normal bite but we want to change the shape, we will remove more. 

Are there different types of veneers? 

Dental veneers come in many different forms. Dr. Waizani’s natural veneers make use of porcelain molds for more natural looking and natural feeling teeth. Porcelain contains particles particularly similar to those found in organic human teeth, allowing light to pass through in a similar manner. Where alternative veneer materials reflect light, porcelain’s translucent quality allows for artificial veneers that are virtually indistinguishable from normal tooth enamel, in addition to being more resistant to staining and chipping.
