Dr. Joel Schlessinger discusses new treatments on WebTalkRadio
The world of dermatology, cosmetic surgery and skin care is constantly changing with new treatments and products becoming available almost every day. Dr. Barry Lycka uses his program “Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today” on WebTalkRadio to explore the new developments. He and Dr. Joel Schlessinger have worked together for over two decades and continue to share their thoughts on cosmetic surgery. In a recent episode, Dr. Joel Schlessinger discussed new treatments that are now available.
Dr. Joel Schlessinger mentions new fillers that add volume to the lips.
Fillers are becoming a popular option for treating common signs of aging including fine lines and loss of firmness. Restylane Silk, which was previously only available in Canada and Europe, is now available in the United States. This treatment is especially beneficial for creating fuller lips.
“It has a delightful appearance on the lips and it doesn’t cause quite as much swelling,” explains Dr. Joel Schlessinger. “It tends to go in on a nice plane and the lips go larger but not aggressively larger.”
Kybella, a treatment for double chins, was worked on by Dr. Joel Schlessinger.
Dr. Joel Schlessinger has recently incorporated Kybella into his practice and seen excellent patient results. He calls it a “fat buster” because it is an injectable treatment that works by dissolving the fat in the chin area for a slimmer appearance.
“This drug has now been studied for eight plus years and we know that it has a very nice effect on chin fat and can reduce the size of the chin within about four or five injection sessions,” explains Dr. Joel Schlessinger.
He also notes that not everyone is going to need four or five sessions and some people may only need one or two sessions to see results. Patients love this treatment because there is no downtime following this procedure so you can do the treatment over a lunch break.
