What Is the QuadraLASE?
The QuadraLASE is a fractional CO2 laser. As such, it emits beams in the form of discrete columns that reduce the amount of skin exposed to the lasers. That makes the treatment more comfortable for the patient and decreases the risk of burns. The machine can also regulate the depth of the laser and thus increases the number of conditions the QuadraLASE can treat. The QuadraLASE can be used to treat the following:
• Wrinkles and fine lines
• Benign lesions
• Sun damage
• Uneven texture and coloring
What kinds of dermal fillers are offered?
Our Massachusetts plastic provides the following dermal fillers:
Belotero® is made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the skin. It is used to fill in fine lines and wrinkles on the face, especially those around the eyes or mouth. It can also fill in circles under the eyes.
Juvederm® is also made from hyaluronic acid and is actually a family of dermal fillers used to treat different parts of the face. Juvederm® Voluma increases the volume of the cheeks.
Radiesse® is composed of microspheres made from calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) suspended in a hyaluronic acid gel. It can be used in procedures called “liquid facelifts” that are done to erase wrinkles and fine lines and add volume to different parts of the face.
Restylane® is another filler made from hyaluronic acid that can be used to treat wrinkles and folds. It can also be used to make lips plumper.
Rhinoplasty, more commonly referred to as a nose job, can provide both functional and cosmetic benefits. Functional rhinoplasty involves correcting a structural problem within the nose that is making it hard for the patient to breathe. Straightening a deviated septum would be an example.
Cosmetic rhinoplasty is done to improve the patient’s appearance and can involve any of the following:
• Changing the size of the nose to make it more proportionate with the rest of the patient’s face
• Removing bumps or depressions
• Changing the size and position of the nostrils
• Correcting a tip that is upturned, drooping or hooked
