Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating. While hyperhidrosis is not fatal or contagious, it is still an extremely serious condition for those who suffer from it. People with hyperhidrosis often sweat excessively in their armpits or the palms of their hands. As a result, a person with hyperhidrosis may be too embarrassed to raise their arms or shake someone’s hand. This sort of inhibition is noticeable, awkward, and can interfere with normal, day-to-day functioning.
Excessive sweating tends to occur during emotionally stressful times. In a sad irony, the dread and embarrassment people with excessive sweating feel is emotionally stressful, making things worse.
Even though 3% of all people experience hyperhidrosis, the condition is rarely discussed. As a result, many people suffer in silence. But they don’t have to. Hyperhidrosis can be treated.
Your face conveys a lot of information. When you smile, frown, or look concerned, muscles in your face contract to create expressions. When skin is young and healthy, your face snaps back to normal after the motion has passed. Over time, however, fine lines, wrinkles, and creases deepen and become permanent. Instead of conveying happiness or surprise, these facial features simply make you look older, tired, or angry.
Simple injections with Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin can relax those natural crevices, making you look younger and healthier.
A chemical peel is a process for removing the outer layers of skin or exfoliation. The chemical not only removes unwanted skin, it also stimulates the newer skin underneath to be firmer, thicker, and plumper—essentially making your skin look younger. Chemical peels are used for many reasons such as improving the look of sun-damaged skin, reducing the appearance of acne scars, and lightening dark spots or blotchy areas.
Our eyes convey many messages. They can show surprise, happiness, excitement, or sadness. They convey subtle hints and provide important information during human conversation. The eyes tell another story—a story not everyone wants to tell. The eyes tell a person’s age. Premature aging of the eyes may tell the wrong story, making people seem older, more tired, and less healthy than they really are. Fortunately, eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty can set the story straight, by removing “years” from a person’s eyes.
Time, gravity, environmental toxins, and the sun’s rays take a toll on facial skin. The face begins to show deep creases around the mouth, loose skin in the cheeks and neck, and fat pockets that don’t go away with diet or exercise. Fortunately, a single facelift can treat all of these conditions. In fact, a facelift can dramatically improve the appearance of aging skin.
When people first hear of fat transfer, they think it must be too good to be true. The cosmetic surgeon removes fat from a part of your body where you do not want it, such as the belly or the inner thighs, processes that fat, and injects put it somewhere you do want it, perhaps to fill in lines and wrinkles in your face. While it may seem too good to be true, fat transfer is a reality, and Dr. Jeannie Khavkin at Nuance Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery expertly performs several fat transfer procedures every month.
A brow lift or forehead lift is a facial plastic surgery procedure to remove loose skin from the forehead, narrowing the distance between the eyebrows and a hairline. A brow lift reduces wrinkles in the forehead and bridge of the nose by gently stretching the skin. A brow lift or forehead lift also reduces the appearance of glabellar lines or “frown” lines, which are the vertical lines that appear on the forehead.

Over time, the skin loses the substances that give it its firmness, elasticity, and vibrancy. Aging skin has less collagen, hyaluronic acid, elastin, and subcutaneous fat than younger skin does. As a result, the skin wrinkles, sags, and droops. One obvious way to reverse this skin aging process is to replenish those substances. Indeed, injectable fillers are substances injected the skin to restore the skin’s youthful vibrancy.

Hair is a funny thing, aesthetically speaking. Hair can be beautiful, or it can be unsightly. This usually depends on where it is on the body. Thick hair on the scalp is a source of pride, but thick hair almost anywhere else can be terribly unflattering. As we age, the thickness and quality of hair changes. Hair becomes thinner in the places we wish it to be thick and coarser in the places where we don’t want it at all. Fortunately, laser hair removal can help turn back the clock, keeping hair from the places it’s not wanted. As we will see, laser hair removal is a safe, effective, and long-lasting process to remove unwanted hair.
Since light from the sun prematurely ages and damages the skin, it seems only fair that doctors use light energy to undo this damage. Laser resurfacing uses the power of focused light energy to reduce or eliminate many of the signs of aging skin.

While some turn to home remedies to get rid of moles this is not advised, since some moles can be an indication of serious skin conditions, such as melanoma
Nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that is performed to alter the shape and size of the nose. Rhinoplasty has many names –a nose job, nose contouring, nose reshaping—but the core procedure is the same in all cases. When performed by a skilled facial plastic surgeon, nose surgery can provide profound emotional benefits, providing a greater sense of confidence, self-satisfaction, and self-esteem.
Innovative Skin Rejuvenation
A Platelet Rich Plasma Facial is an innovative new way to rejuvenate your skin using an all-natural product created from your own body.
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is derived from your own blood after it has been drawn and separated into various components. The isolated plasma, which contains growth factors, is then injected into the patient’s skin, where it helps promote collagen growth and tissue regeneration. This tightens the skin, softening wrinkles and creating a smoother texture and tone.
PRP has been used extensively throughout orthopedic medicine, dentistry, and reconstructive surgery. Increasingly the healing benefits of plasma have been gaining popularity in dermatology and cosmetic facial rejuvenation.
A scar is a permanent reminder of trauma to the skin. A scar can be caused by a number of injuries, from cuts and burns to blisters from chickenpox. Scars and scar tissue can affect people in different ways. For many, the presence of a scar is constant source of embarrassment that robs them of self-confidence. Fortunately, scar revision and scar removal procedures can reduce the undesirable appearance of scars and restore a person’s self-assurance in social and professional settings.
