Home laser devices can complement treatment
Skin & Allergy News
A large array of home laser and light devices can be purchased on the Internet, with sellers touting their cosmetic benefits in treating acne, age spots, large pores, wrinkles, sagging skin, puffy eyes, rosacea, cold sores and many other skin conditions.

Skin & Allergy News
When using fat and stem cell transfer for facial volume enhancement, it's disingenuous to tell patients a stem cell facelift is being performed, said Dr. Mark Berman. The accurate description is to tell patients a stem cell fat graft is being performed. "Tell them, 'we're using a fat graft, and the reason it works is because your fat is loaded with stem cells, which can turn on, proliferate and grow new fat cells,'" Berman said at the 2012 AACS Annual Scientific Meeting. "This is a dynamic process."

Pellevé is a revolutionary innovation in skin tightening, FDA-cleared to treat facial wrinkles without surgery. Using radiowaves, the Pellevé system heats the deep layers of the skin, causing collagen to contract and tighten. After treatment, the skin begins to produce new collagen, improving skin firmness and resulting in a naturally refreshed appearance.
