Definitely not. Dr. Mozdy strives to achieve a very natural look. These things are of the utmost importance: listening to the patient and tailoring the results to their wishes, having extensive experience in this field in order to predict outcomes, and having artistry in order to see the face as a whole and keep it in balance. Bigger is not better. Results can be subtle or dramatic, but never overdone.
One of the most common questions we have at the Integrative Med-Spa is will it hurt. Dr. Mozdy takes great care to consult with each patient to be sure they have the best treatment options. Most procedures either involve very minimal discomfort or are pain free, including Botox treatments. For procedures that do involve more discomfort, we use a very strong topical anesthesia applied prior to treatment. We always use dermal fillers that have a local anesthetic mixed in the syringe. Keeping up on the latest aesthetic medicine advances, Dr. Mozdy is one of a select group of physicians using a new injection technique with a flexible microcannula, instead of a sharp needle. The blunt-tipped microcannula allows for much less pain and bruising with dermal filler injections and minimizes trauma to underlying vessels, even in the delicate under-eye area. As a board-certified anesthesiologist and a licensed acupuncturist, Dr. Mozdy's training ensures that the utmost care is taken in regard to patient safety and comfort.
Fine lines and wrinkles that often appear when the face is moving are best treated with Botox and other anti-wrinkle products. They cause nerve endings which serve the muscles to relax thus minimizing muscle contraction and diminishing the appearance of lines. A Botox treatment is completed within minutes and the effects last four to six months.
Deep lines and folds appear in very specific areas and remain even when the face is static. Dermal fillers can be injected into single lines and folds, and can add volume and lift, leaving a natural look and feel. Our favorite is Voluma for volume restoration. Results are instant and last 12 to 18 months or longer.
Lips are one of Dr Mozdy’s specialties. The aging process can cause lips to become thin with loss of border definition and fine lip lines. Hyaluronic-acid based lip fillers such as Juvederm Vollure and Volbella are a safe and natural way to enhance the look of the lip area by combating issues including lack of volume, wrinkles, smile lines, cupids’ bows and lowered corners. We also do lip augmentation for a fuller look! Results are instant and can last up to 12 months or longer.
Facial fat loss, gravity and loss of the skin’s natural elasticity all conspire to reverse the natural balance and effects of youthful skin. The face’s balance and heart-shaped proportions can be restored by the application of volumizer fillers for a fuller, softer, more youthful appearance.
The décolletage – the neck and chest area – is often one of the first areas to show aging due to the fine, delicate skin. A course of treatments to stimulate collagen production, combat hyperpigmentation issues and tighten the skin are most effective ways to deal with these issues. Our treatments include chemical peels, skincare products, IPL laser and Radio-frequency microneedling.
Hyperpigmentation is most often caused by sun damage, inflammation or other skin injuries, including those related to acne vulgaris. Treatments such as chemical peels and laser promote new cell growth and/or the accelerated removal of old, dead skin cells at the surface of the skin are considered the most effective way to deal with pigmentation issues.
