Enhance Your Beauty with a Photofacial in Fort Lauderdale

Gentle skin rejuvenation is now easy to achieve – thanks to many innovative therapies and technology on the market today. One of the skin treatments we love here at Take Shape Plastic Surgery is Photofacials, a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. When you’re ready to discuss getting a Photofacial in Fort Lauderdale, call us for a consultation.

A Photofacial in Fort Lauderdale Will Safely Target Your Skin Issues

At our medi-spa at Take Shape Plastic Surgery, we offer a number of amazing, minimally invasive cosmetic treatments and procedures that successfully handle many of the areas you would like to “tweak” or redefine within your body. We’re excited to offer Photofacials, also referred to as photo rejuvenation, which is a procedure that uses a light-based technology – IPL/Intense-Pulsed Light therapy. A hand-held instrument delivers a bright blast of light, targeting many skin issues and helping with the following:

• Improves skin texture
• Treats sun damage
• Lightens brown and red spots
• Diminishes broken capillaries
• Fades the appearance of spider veins
• Fades the appearance of facial redness (rosacea)
• Stimulates collagen production
• Minimizes the appearance of wrinkles
• Reduces pore size

For our Photofacials, we use the elos technology. It’s the first and only technology that uses combined energies to effectively and gently restore and rejuvenate the appearance of your skin. It’s a safe and effective treatment for most skin types. The condition of your skin will dictate the number of treatments you’ll need. Typically, patients will see a marked difference in five treatment sessions. The procedure takes about 30 minutes. There is no downtime and most patients return to normal activities immediately following treatment.

We’re ready to help you to take care of your skin. Call us at (954) 585-3800 and make an appointment for a consultation. We’ll answer all of your questions about Photofacials and determine if you would be a good candidate. If so, we can then set a personalized treatment schedule for you. The professional team at Take Shape Plastic Surgery looks forward to meeting you!

Find Your Ideal Plastic Surgeon with Our Top Five Tips

With 2020 just around the corner, we are preparing to step not only into a new year, but a new decade. For many, starting the new year off right means looking your best. Whether you want to bring back the youthful plumpness to your face, get a more toned core, or restore hair loss, cosmetic procedures can help you start the new year on your best foot. If you are seeking the help of a board-certified plastic surgeon in Fort Lauderdale to get your new year started right, here are five things you absolutely must consider—from the experts!

Check Board Certification

Of course, the absolute first thing you need to check when considering a plastic surgeon is their credentials. Board certification verifies that your cosmetic surgery provider is educated and has the qualifications to conduct your desired procedure. Remember, plastic surgery is a form of medical procedure, and as such, your surgeon needs to keep your health and safety as top priority.

Unfortunately, in South Florida, you have to be careful of who you trust. Many practitioners will offer incredible deals and discounts in the hopes that you will overlook their lacking qualifications. We’ve all heard the horror stories—don’t fall victim to a potentially deadly scam. Board certification indicates your plastic surgeon meets and exceeds competency requirements and minimum standards of care for their area of practice. They have exhibited a mastery of the necessary skills and knowledge to provide the results you deserve.

Dr. Russell Sassani is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Fort Lauderdale who also serves both the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the Broward County Society of Plastic Surgeons. He is dedicated to providing safe, quality services to all Take Shape Plastic Surgery clients. The professionals at Take Shape Plastic Surgery are proud he is part of our incredible staff.

Specialties

Not all plastic surgeons are the same. Most specialize in specific areas such as reconstruction, breast augmentation, or body sculpting. Researching surgeons who specialize in the procedure you want can help to narrow down your search. Looking into specific areas of expertise can help to put your mind at ease.

Whether you are looking for eyelid surgery, liposuction, or Dysport/fillers, Dr. Sassani and the team at Take Shape Plastic Surgery is here to serve you. Led by a board-certified plastic surgeon in Fort Lauderdale, we have the knowledge and experience to help you achieve your goals.

Take Advantage of a Free Consultation

Most cosmetic centers in South Florida offer free consultations, so make sure you take advantage of the opportunity. These consultations are an opportunity to speak directly with your surgeon and get a better idea of what you can expect from your procedure, as well as getting any questions you may have answered.

This is also when you get a good idea of what type of care you can expect during and after your surgery. Communication and attentiveness both matter when it comes to finding a surgeon you can trust. Go to as many consultations as you need in order to feel comfortable with moving forward.

Recommendations and Reviews for a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon in Fort Lauderdale

In today’s digital world, it’s easier than ever to get information about your cosmetic surgeon before you make a final decision. Online reviews and recommendations from friends and family members can help to guide you in the right direction. Most cosmetic centers provide photo galleries of previous clients’ results to help you determine if their services are right for you. Take advantage of these resources when searching for your board-certified plastic surgeon in Fort Lauderdale. When you check Dr. Sassani’s extensive experience and training, you will undoubtedly feel very comfortable with choosing Take Shape Plastic Surgery for your surgical needs.

Facility Check

Because plastic surgery is a medical procedure, ensuring the facility where you will undergo your procedure is up to standard is important. Poorly maintained facilities can leave one vulnerable to infection or other complications. Be sure to ask any questions you feel necessary during your consultation. At Take Shape Plastic Surgery, we take pride in being an ambulatory surgical center. We adhere to the highest standards for cleanliness and safety, so you can rest assured you are in good hands.

Laser Season: Heating Up Skin Rejuvenation with the CO2 Laser

Summer may be over, but things are heating up in the world of beauty secrets and skin rejuvenation. At Take Shape Plastic Surgery in Fort Lauderdale, we are proud to say that we are always on the cutting edge of new and developing cosmetic and beauty treatments. We are thrilled to be able to share the CO2 Fractional Laser technology with our practice! If you didn’t know this already, laser skin resurfacing has become the gold standard in skin rejuvenation for improving tone, texture, and wrinkles of the skin. The most popular treatment areas include the full face, neck, and upper chest. If you’re looking for new and improved ways to have youthful, glowing skin this Fall, you’re at the right place!

At Take Shape Plastic Surgery, we are committed to offering only the best in aesthetics, and that includes using state-of-the-art equipment for cosmetic procedures. One of the most popular items out there this season is the CO2 Laser. The CO2 Laser is short for the “Carbon Dioxide Fractional Laser.” The newest versions of CO2 Laser resurfacing machines use very short, pulsed light energy (also known as ultra-pulse), or continuous light beams that are delivered in a scanning-like pattern to remove thin layers of skin with minimal heat damage. CO2 Lasers are microscopically small but deeply penetrating and highly effective CO2 Laser “micro beams.” They rehabilitate scarred tissue and stimulate your body to produce substantial amounts of new, healthier collagen in the skin. Laser skin resurfacing with CO2 Lasers has proven to help reduce wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and blemishes, as well as to tighten skin and balance skin tone.

Laser Season at Take Shape Plastic Surgery

This may sound a bit funny, but Autumn is actually considered “laser season” in the world of cosmetic plastic surgery. Why? Because laser-treated skin is known to be hypersensitive to sun exposure for up to a year following some laser procedures. This is why many cosmetic surgeons recommend undergoing laser resurfacing like CO2 Lasers, during Fall or Winter months when those daytime hours are shorter, and you are probably spending more of your time indoors.

No matter what season you choose to have your CO2 Laser procedure done in, you will absolutely have to wear a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher sunscreen daily and reapply as needed. This will not only help to keep your CO2 Laser results looking their best, it will also provide protection against skin cancer and continually help prevent additional, premature aging.

What Can You Expect from Co2 Skin Rejuvenation with Take Shape?

Although most laser treatments are generally considered non-surgical, they are not all downtime-free. Skin rejuvenation with laser resurfacing requires recovery time, which varies depending on the type of laser used as well as an individual’s health and healing rate.
The CO2 Laser is an in-office procedure. Resurfacing works by heating and ablating the top layer of your skin, exposing a fresh new layer of skin. The heat from the treatment will be stimulating collagen production over the next 6 to 12 months. This is not only going to be firming your skin, but it lightens dark spots, improves pore size, and helps to minimalize wrinkles. This CO2 Laser resurfacing requires at least a week of downtime with minimal to no sun exposure. During this week of downtime, you will be required to cover your skin in very thick ointment to speed up the healing process. It will take about a week for your skin to slough, unveiling new, beautiful skin. This doesn’t mean you have to hide out at home for weeks, but it does mean that your skin will be raw, red, and scab over as it is in the process of healing. You may not feel comfortable in certain social situations, and you will need to modify your activities to avoid situations where infection is possible (swimming, gym workouts, etc.). Our number one concern for our valued Take Shape patients is that they have a healthy, safe recovery for optimum beauty results!

If you are considering CO2 Laser treatments to improve your skin this Fall season, we encourage you to contact Take Shape Plastic Surgery today! At Take Shape Plastic Surgery, our double board-certified medical professionals are excited to help you achieve your gorgeous, youthful, glowing, and rejuvenated skin with our CO2 Lasers. The CO2 Laser at Take Shape Plastic Surgery will help you reach your end-of-the-year beauty goals and feel confident for many years to come!

Hi-Definition Liposuction at Take Shape Plastic Surgery

If you are looking to improve your body image and self-esteem with Hi-Definition Liposuction, Take Shape Plastic Surgery in Fort Lauderdale can help. You will have time during the winter months to get used to the skinnier you, and it won’t be long after your Hi-Definition Liposuction in Fort Lauderdale that you’ll feel happy and confident with your new self, ready to show off your new bathing suit in time for Spring.

Hi-Definition Liposuction is an advanced body contouring technique for that unwanted fat removal, which offers a safer and more effective skin-tightening alternative to traditional Liposuction. It is the most effective, minimally invasive method for getting rid of unwanted fat from your body, and also for creating a defined and sculpted look. Hi-Definition Liposuction is an ultrasound-assisted Liposuction; the ultrasonic energy helps destroy fat cells. This Hi-Definition Liposuction technique is unique in that it incorporates ultrasound to disrupt the fat cells to help aid in fat removal, while traditional Liposuction requires more mechanical work.

What is Hi-Definition Liposuction? 

When patients come to Take Shape Plastic Surgery in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, they long to have many different issues addressed. At Take Shape Plastic Surgery, we want to make sure that our patients feel empowered by knowing everything they can about any procedure they are interested in doing with Take Shape. Here are some of the most common questions answered about Hi-Definition Liposuction:

How is Hi-Definition Liposuction Different from Regular Liposuction?

Traditional Liposuction has been around for a very long time and is a relatively simple and common procedure where a surgeon makes an incision, inserts a small rod just under the skin, and then sucks the fat cells out. While totally effective, this type of surgery often results in relatively severe bruising and can require a lengthy recovery. During Hi-Definition Liposuction using Hi-Definition, ultrasonic wave technology is first used to break apart and then emulsify larger pockets of fat. This Hi-Definition technology breaks up fat while preserving other important tissues to promote smooth results and rapid healing. Once the emulsification of fat is in process, a small cannula or rod is used to remove the liquid and the fat cells. Some of the local anesthetic remains in the tissue, which helps to reduce post-procedural pain.

What are Some of the Benefits of Hi-Definition Liposuction?  

* It can more precisely remove fat

* It is superior for the definition and sculpting of the body shape

* It can remove stubborn, fibrous fat especially in the “fat rolls”

* It can better preserve the surrounding nerves

* It can increase skin contraction for less sagging skin

* There is significantly less blood loss

* There is less fatigue of the surgeon, which means better results

What Areas Does Hi-Definition Liposuction Treat? 

Hi-Definition Liposuction can remove stubborn fat safely and efficiently from almost all bodily areas such as the abdomen, back, breasts, buttocks, face, flanks, hips, neck, knees, and upper arms.

Who are Good Candidates for Hi-Definition Liposuction? 

Patients who are physically healthy and want to get rid of fat pockets that cannot be resolved through their own diet and exercises are the best candidates for Hi-Definition Liposuction. At Take Shape Plastic Surgery, we recommend an exam and consultation with our top-notch plastic surgeon, Dr. Sassani, who performs these procedures and can confirm who is a good candidate for Hi-Definition Liposuction. He will also discuss options and expectations.

Who are the Best Surgeons for Hi-Definition Liposuction? 

When it comes to cosmetic surgery, what is truly the most important thing is the training, skill, and experience of the plastic surgeon. Dr. Sassani is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons for his cosmetic plastic surgery procedures. Dr. Sassani sees patients from many different walks of life, including entertainers, athletes, and international clientele. He has helped them all with consistently high-quality cosmetic practices. He is also an active member of several plastic surgery organizations, including The American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the Broward County Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Patient care and comfort are a top priority for the professional team at Take Shape Plastic Surgery. Combining ultrasonic waves with Liposuction technology has given Take Shape Plastic Surgery the ability to safely remove stubborn body fat with minimal side effects for our valued patients. From pre-surgery prep to the keys to a successful recovery, Take Shape ensures every patient experience is a positive one.

How Does Hi-Definition Liposuction Work?

Seeking Liposuction in Fort Lauderdale is a personal decision. Everyone has their own reasons for considering getting a little extra help for slimmer arms, a more defined waist, or more sculpted legs. No matter what your reason for getting Liposuction, being informed before you make a final decision is important. Because of the advancements in cosmetic technology and techniques, getting the results you want is easier and safer than ever before. Even so, it’s important to have realistic expectations and understand the entire process before you get this outpatient procedure.

What is Liposuction?

Most people think Liposuction in Fort Lauderdale is a way to lose weight without having to hit the gym. Though it is often used to help address some problem areas, it is not a weight loss procedure. Instead, Liposuction focuses on improving the contour of one’s body – giving you the silhouette you want. Whether you’re struggling with stubborn lower belly fat, want help slimming your hips, thighs, or other areas, Liposuction can help you achieve the figure you’ve always wanted.

Unlike other cells which can be regenerated indefinitely, there are only a certain number of fat cells in the body. Therefore, when one gains or loses weight, the number of cells does not change, just their size. Different people carry fat deposits in different areas of the body, which may prove difficult to reduce through diet and exercise. Dr. Sassani at Take Shape Plastic Surgery is able to target these areas and remove fat through various methods, such as Hi-Definition Liposuction in Fort Lauderdale.

What is Hi-Definition Liposuction?

In the simplest terms, this technique uses targeted sound wave technology to liquify fat deposits within the body before removal through a suction procedure. Hi-Definition Liposuction is gentler on the body than traditional methods of fat removal, allowing for a faster recovery period and less overall discomfort. This method also allows for precise contouring, giving you the figure you want.

Who Qualifies for Hi-Definition Liposuction in Fort Lauderdale?

Liposuction may not be right for everyone. The ideal candidate is someone who is at or close to their weight goal and looking for definition rather than weight loss. Clients should have realistic expectations of the results as well as be able to adhere to instructions regarding recovery. It can take three to six months to see the final results. Additionally, Hi-Definition Liposuction in Fort Lauderdale may not be possible for clients with lower total body fat, because this procedure involves the permanent removal of fat cells. People with low fat percentages may need to seek different options.

What Can I Expect During Hi-Definition Liposuction with Take Shape Plastic Surgery?

Beginning with your free consultation, our team at Take Shape Plastic Surgery is dedicated to your comfort, safety, and satisfaction. We will guide you through the entire decision-making process, including vital information about the process and recovery. Our surgeon, Dr. Sassani, will take your specific concerns into consideration during your physical assessment. Dr. Sassani is certified by the American Board Of Plastic Surgeons and is a top cosmetic plastic surgeon in the industry. He will make sure you are a good candidate for Hi-Definition Liposuction, and we can schedule your procedure at your earliest convenience. As an outpatient cosmetic procedure, Liposuction is conducted under general anesthesia. During your procedure, Dr. Sassani will use specialized ultrasound technology to break up the fat cells, which makes the extraction easier. This method allows for more targeted treatments. The next step is extraction, which is done using a small catheter.

Following the procedure, it’s important to follow your recovery guidelines fully. You may be required to wear compression garments to prevent blood clots and decrease swelling, or you may require drainage from incisions for the first few days following your surgery. You may need to take some time off of work or require some assistance after your procedure. For more information about Hi-Definition Liposuction and other options for getting the figure you want, contact us today!

CO2 Laser: The New Anti-Aging Phenomenon

The early signs of aging often creep up unnoticed. You may not notice crow’s feet or smile lines forming until they’ve begun to stick around after the laughter ends. Sagging under eyes and wrinkled skin can age you prematurely, adding years to your appearance, no matter how youthful you feel. While genetics play a huge part in the way we age, they don’t have to dictate your destiny. If you are struggling with signs of aging, advances in cosmetic procedures can help to remove a few years from your face. CO2 laser at Take Shape Plastic Surgery is the latest in effective age-defying cosmetic treatments. Here’s what you need to know!

How Does CO2 Laser Help with Signs of Aging?

Often, the first signs of aging we notice are the ones that appear on our faces. Because your face is exposed to the sun, weather conditions, and air pollution, you may begin to see fine lines, sun spots, and other signs of aging earlier than one may expect. These minute signs of aging may be caused by the skin losing elasticity with age, which can be accelerated by extended exposure to the elements. Other factors that can lead to early signs of aging include:

  • Stress
  • Poor sleep patterns
  • High alcohol or caffeine intake
  • Dry skin
  • Poor diet
  • Occupational exposure to free radicals

If you are experiencing aging skin, CO2 laser at Take Shape Plastic Surgery can help to eliminate sun and liver spots, discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, and acne scarring. This procedure involves removing older layers of skin to expose the new, more youthful skin below. CO2 laser at Take Shape Plastic Surgery restores the youthful flush and glow to your face while also smoothing wrinkles, fine lines, and spots.

How Does CO2 Laser Work?

CO2 laser beams are a minimally invasive, outpatient cosmetic procedure. You will have a comprehensive consultation where our expert in cosmetic surgery and laser skin resurfacing, Dr. Russell F. Sassani, will review your areas of concern and explain the entire process to you. Then, our Surgical Coordinator at Take Shape Plastic Surgery will schedule your laser procedure at your convenience. The procedure can be conducted in as little as one hour, not including prep time.

Following treatment, your skin may take a few weeks to completely heal. During this time, it is important to follow any and all skin care instructions, including protecting your skin from sun exposure. You may experience skin sensitivity, so it is important to be mindful of what products you use during the recovery process.

At Take Shape Plastic Surgery, we are dedicated to giving each client the best possible experience, no matter the procedure. Our skin care specialists take the time to understand your specific concerns and help guide you in making the best decision for you. If you are considering a CO2 laser, we can help you get the results you want while maintaining your safety and comfort. Contact us today for more information about your options.

Is a Facelift Right for Me?

Facelift surgery has been around for decades and with the improvements today, that can make some options for you virtually pain-free. If you’ve just lost a ton of weight or are unhappy with your sagging skin due to aging, then there are great options for those who want to erase the signs of gravity, sun exposure, and daily stress from everyday life. As people age, skin may droop, wrinkles may form, and creases and crow’s feet might grow deeper. A facelift improves the visible signs of aging by removing the excess skin and fat in the face and neck area to make your skin look healthier, younger and more refreshed.

At Take Shape Plastic Surgery, our facial procedures will knock years off of your look and improve the overall health of your skin in general. In our state –of- the- art surgical facility, we have imaging machines that can show you before and after result photos even prior to your procedure. So, you will have a great of idea of how you’ll look after you’ve healed post- surgery. You can be sure that Dr. Sassani will sit down with you and talk candidly about what you hope to see improved on your skin and face. At that point we will recommend one or more treatments to help reach your desired goals.

Is a Facelift My Only Option to Get the Results I Want? 

If you are on the fence about whether or not a face-lift is for you, Take Shape Plastic Surgery in Fort Lauderdale offers non-surgical options that can improve your appearance just as well as a facelift and for some, even better. The best part is you don’t need to have any surgery. Facial fillers offer the perfect option to plump up the skin, stimulate collagen over time, and allow your skin to appear more youthful and refreshed. Before moving forward with any facial filler, facelift or cosmetic procedure, we always make sure our clients are in the best health before we move any further. We want to make sure your skin will heal properly and that there will not be any issues during your procedure. Our number one concern is your health, and if you are a smoker, it’s definitely time to quit now before you have anything done. If we determine that a facelift may put you at risk or is just not right for you at this time, then we may suggest other options like our injectable fillers: Dysport, Restylane, and Sculptra. These can offer similar results that you may even prefer to a facelift! Why go through any unnecessary surgery if you don’t have to?

Whatever you decide, facelift or non-surgical injectable, chemical peel, or a combination of procedures, Dr. Sassani and the caring medical staff at Take Shape Plastic Surgery will speak with you at length about how to prepare for the surgery or procedure; and instruct you on the post-op care at home. If you are interested in learning more about surgical or non-surgical options, please contact us today at (954) 585-3800. We are always happy to help!

What Services are Offered at a MediSpa in Fort Lauderdale?

The concept of a MediSpa in Fort Lauderdale is relatively new. Thanks to advancements in medical technology, more and more services are being offered that aren’t invasive and aren’t difficult to recover from. These procedures fall under the MediSpa category, and allow individuals, just like you, to have access to face-enhancement appointments. There are numerous reasons people decide to book a MediSpa appointment. Often, people are looking for youthful practices, as well as upkeep on their skin and hygiene. In this article, we’ll show you what the top services in MediSpas are today, and what you can expect when you book yours with Take Shape Plastic Surgery in South Florida!

Book a Chemical Peel in a MediSpa in Fort Lauderdale  

Chemical peels are new, but they’re taking over quickly. The popularity of this MediSpa option peaked only a few years ago, and continues to be a top seller. The peel made of a chemical solution that is applied to the skin. From there, that solution is exfoliated. The exfoliation of the chemical eventually leads to a peel, which then leads to newer and fresher skin. The solution irritates the skin, which leads to rejuvenated skin cells and less wrinkled skin!

Hydrafacial  

If you’re looking for an option that merely soothes and hydrates the skin, a hydrafacial is for you. The skin on your face begins to age overtime. The reason being that as we get older, we stop producing as much collagen, which then allows for sagging and wrinkles. Hydrafacials combine exfoliants, extractions, hydration, and more for an overall healthy procedure. This is the perfect treatment for those looking to get the full, facial effect. The best part about this particular facial is that there’s no downtime!

Dysport 

Dysport has been around for years, and its popularity is only increasing. Now, medispas are starting to see younger patients looking to be preventative about their aging. The solution helps to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and any other unwanted stripes within the face. Dysport helps to restore a look of youth, while injecting a bit of plumpness and life back into sagging or aging skin.

Microdermabrasion  

While this method takes a longer recovery time than some of the others, the results are well-worth it. This method works to treat scars, discoloration, sun damage, and more. The medical professional will use a light razor and drag it gently across the surface of the skin. The outside layer is removed, leaving a more beautiful and radiant layer to show through!

If you’re looking for a MediSpa in Fort Lauderdale, try Take Shape Plastic Surgery, P.A. today! We can’t wait to help you find the beauty you’ve been looking for. No longer will you be suffering from wrinkles, fine lines, dry skin, or dead layers. Instead, you can rejuvenate your skin with professional services at excellent prices! Contact our team today for more information at 954-585-3800. Your time to look your best is now!

Injectables: Where to Get Restylane in Fort Lauderdale

Need a little lift to look your best? Take Shape Plastic Surgery has the best options in Fort Lauderdale for facial rejuvenation including yet another amazing tool in the facial volume replacement arsenal: Restylane.

Looking for a quick “pick me up”? Take Shape has got your covered! Now you can get the lift (and the lips) you’ve been looking for with the injectable called Restylane. Restylane is a beneficial gel-based form of hyaluronic acid and natural lifting treatment for maturing skin and is perfect for more delicate areas like the lips or underneath the eyes to enhance the skin’s fullness and flexibility.

The Restylane family of products includes Restylane & Restylane-L. These products can be used individually to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as:

  • Nasolabial folds or laugh lines (The lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth)
  • Lipstick lines (the area just below the nose and above the upper lip)
  • Marionette lines (The corners of the mouth and the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline)
  • Restylane (may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years)

Restylane is perfect for the cheek bone area and lip edge. Restylane works immediately by adding volume to smooth away wrinkles and to add volume. Restylane is specifically formulated to act like your own hyaluronic acid. So, you can use Restylane to visibly reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, and to add fullness to your lips. Restylane can also be injected in the tear trough area to reduce hollowness and dark circles, so you no longer look tired and never have to use concealer to cover up the darkness again!

Take Shape Plastic Surgery, P.A. for Restylane in Fort Lauderdale

MediSpas combine medical technology with traditional relaxation to create an experience that rejuvenates your skin while easing your mind, body, and spirit at the same time. At Take Shape Plastic Surgery, P.A. MediSpa, we love using the Restylane family of products because they instantly add volume to help restore youthful contours, so you’ll see results immediately following your treatment!

Restylane injectable fillers provide Take Shape Plastic Surgery, P.A. patients with facial rejuvenation and beauty enhancement for a natural and more youthful appearance, which is very important in Fort Lauderdale.  But you don’t have to worry about what you’re injecting, as they are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin and other tissues. This makes Restylane a very safe and well-tolerated product.

During the procedure at Take Shape Plastic Surgery, P.A. MediSpa, the doctor will cleanse your face, and mark the treatment area. You may request a local anesthetic, or if you choose Restylane-L, lidocaine is already in the gel to be injected. The clear gel is injected into the marked treatment area, using an ultra-fine needle. Your doctor will then cleanse the area again, and apply cold compresses if necessary.

There is little to no downtime, and Restylane results can be seen immediately. The “Restylane Regimen” is a treatment plan of follow-up injections in order to get the most out of the Restylane injections. For most facial enhancements, it is recommended to have subsequent injections every 4 to 9 months. Restylane injectable gel has been clinically proven to provide results that last up to 18 months in the laugh lines (nasolabial folds), with only one follow-up treatment at either four or nine months.

At Take Shape Plastic Surgery, P.A., patient satisfaction is our number one priority- which means only top of the line products, experienced professional staff and consistent perfect results. Our medical professionals are trained and educated to focus on the areas you wish to tackle and modify, giving you outstanding results so you can look and feel your best!
