Mirabile M.D. offers multiple non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedures
Anita got comfy in the reclining chair at MedCosmetic, a division of Mirabile M.D. Beauty, Health & Wellness a few weeks ago. At 62, she was relatively happy with her face; good genetics and a rigorous skin care regimen including sunscreen, meant fewer wrinkles than most women her age. But she felt it was time to finally address those pesky “elevens,” the defined lines between her eyebrows.
The final straw came when her 6-year old granddaughter asked, “Gramma, are you mad at me?” Her sister-in-law and a co-worker had been raving about two of MedCosmetic’s Registered Nurse Injectors, Jessica and Sophia, so she made an appointment for a free consultation. “Bring on the Botox!,” Anita said with a laugh when Jessica stepped into the room.
Not so fast.
“My first step, especially with a new patient,” Jessica says, “is to take time to analyze their entire face and neck, including features and symmetry, skin texture and laxity, and mild or deep wrinkles. Because we have such a wide array of tools and techniques available to us, we can do so much more than simply address one or two areas of concern.”
Eyes on the prize
In Anita’s case, Jessica recommended Botox or Dysport (neurotoxins injected into facial muscles to temporarily but effectively ease wrinkles) not just for her frown lines, but also above her eyebrows to create a lifted appearance. She also talked about using these proven beauty-boosters to reduce what’s called a “golf ball chin” – a lumpy appearance that is typical for women over 60.
Anita laughed while looking into the hand mirror.
“I didn’t even know there was a name for that. Can Botox help with what I lovingly call my turkey neck?” Now it was Jessica’s turn to laugh. “As a matter of fact, our patients get incredible results with the Nefertiti Neck Lift, which improves the definition of the jaw line and neck.” She also explained other proven uses, including extreme underarm perspiration, migraine headaches and even to help with teeth grinding.
But refreshing a patient’s appearance doesn’t have to stop at zapping wrinkles. Both Jessica and Sophia are also well skilled with dermal fillers, which can be used to add youthful volume to the cheekbones, reduce deep wrinkles in problem areas such as nasolabial folds from nose to mouth and marionette lines from mouth to chin.
Mirabile M.D. MedCosmetic offers the latest injectables on the market including Juvederm® for a smooth and supple appearance around the nose and mouth; Juvederm Voluma® XC to provide an instant lift to the cheek area while providing an upward pull of wrinkles on the lower face; Radiesse® for moderate to severe wrinkles, the first dermal filler approved for use in the hands; Scupltra® Aesthetic, which targets the underlying causes of facial aging by replacing lost collagen; and Restylane® Silk, designed specifically to treat the mouth area including thinning lips and vertical lip lines.
Sophia calls the combination of treatments a ‘liquid face lift.’ “By applying the appropriate treatments tailored specifically to each person’s needs,” she says, “our patients achieve remarkable results that last from three to four months to two years or more. Unlike surgery, there are no scars, no down time. And let’s be honest, a face lift comes at a price most people can’t afford.”
You’re never too old. Or young!
More and more men and women are turning to non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedures; in fact Botox and Dysport treatments topped 4.5 million in 2016, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. And while the majority of patients (40 percent) are between the ages of 35 and 50, Anita is in the next largest group (51-64 at 31 percent). But people over the age of 65 are increasingly seeking treatments to look as vibrant as they feel; this age group has jumped nearly 1,300 percent in the last two decades!
But Jessica and Sophia note the benefits to getting on the anti-aging fast track sooner.
“It’s all about preventive treatments,” says Sophia. “Addressing concerns earlier can keep deep wrinkles from forming in the first place.” Jessica agrees and states she sees dozens of patients in their mid-twenties, often at the advice of their dermatologist, savvy mother or older sister.
It’s not the injection that matters; it’s the injector
Patients have several options when choosing a cosmetic medical center. But there’s a reason Anita made an appointment at MedCosmetic. “I did my homework and found out Dr. Mirabile’s team has been treating patients since 1999,” she says. “I also felt good that the clinic is owned and supervised by an on-site medical doctor. “
“And my friend at work highly recommended it because, like me, she wanted a natural, subtle look. We’ve all seen people who look frozen, or can’t move their faces. That’s why I was relieved when Jessica explained her philosophy.”
“I believe in a subtle or natural approach,” Jessica says. “I want each patient to look refreshed, to have people say ‘you look great!’ rather than asking ‘did you have something done?’ We can always go back to add more treatments later.”
Anita also liked the fact that MedCosmetic offers a wide variety of other skin rejuvenation procedures including lasers and more. “It means that I have options going forward,” she says. When I find a place with this level of professionalism and experience,
I tend to be very loyal.”
