Laser and Light Procedures:
Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing, sometimes referred to as “Fraxel®,” describes the use of a laser to create zones of heat injury to the skin. This triggers an increase in collagen production that results in skin tightening. Laser resurfacing has become the gold standard for treatment of facial wrinkles and loss of skin tone related to sun exposure and UV damage.
Dr. Palm uses the Lutronic ECO2 for fractional laser skin resurfacing treatment. She is the first author of a published medical article documenting safety and events following fractional laser resurfacing and is a nationally recognized laser expert and speaker.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a broad-band light source used to treat a variety of skin conditions including rosacea, sun spots, photodamage, and melasma. IPL targets brown and red discoloration in the skin, and is considered a “no downtime” source of photorejuvenation. IPL is sometimes referred to as a “photofacial.”
Dr. Palm is a co-author on a study using IPL photofacial technology with topical treatment for melasma. Dr. Palm performs all IPL treatments on her patients. Dr. Palm uses a combination of topical numbing agents, cooled topical gel on the skin, and forced air cooling to improve patient comfort during this procedure.
ResurFX is a newly FDA-approved device that builds upon prior laser skin resurfacing technology platforms such as Fraxel to improve fine lines and wrinkles, soften scars, improve skin texture and tone, and promote collagen growth. ResurFX offers results with minimal downtime during a nearly pain-free procedure. Fractionated non ablative laser resurfacing, sometimes referred to as Fraxel®, describes the use of an infrared laser to create zones of heat injury to the skin. This results in collagen production and skin tightening.
Dr. Palm is a recognized expert, speaker, and physician trainer for the ResurFX fractional laser by Lumenis. That means that in addition to offering her patients this non-surgical, non-ablative skin resurfacing treating, she also teaches other physicians how to use it on their own patients.
Ulthera (also referred to as Ultherapy) is a nonsurgical, no downtime, in-office procedure for lifting and toning sagging skin of the lower face, jawline, and brows. It is also FDA-cleared for rejuvenation of the decollete area of the chest. Ultrasound technology is focused below the skin surface to firm and lift droopy tissues. Results are long lasting and occur gradually but dramatically over time.
Dr. Palm is a board-certified dermatologist and fellowship-trained cosmetic surgeon. A noted leader in her field, Dr. Palm is an expert in the use of Ultherapy for non-surgical facelifts and is a physician speaker and advisory board member for the device.
Microneedling is a means of collagen building through mechanical stimulation of the skin, leading to dermal skin renewal and textural improvements. Microneedling is comfortable through the use of our effective topical numbing agents. Patients may experience microneedling boosted by PRP (plasma rich platelets), or combine microneedling with radiofrequency energy through our LegendPro platform. LegendPro can be combined during the same session with an IPL photofacial, leading to glowing skin and an even-toned complexion.
The Rejuvapen is a remarkable, non-laser, non-surgical treatment that causes skin to stimulate collagen production and fresh, new tissue. Skin tightens; wrinkles, fine lines, scarring, and hyperpigmentation significantly diminish; pores become finer; and the overall health and circulation of the skin is improved.
Exilis is a no-downtime, no pain, in-office procedure used for both combined skin tightening and non-invasive fat removal and body contouring. It is used to tone skin and improve skin texture while reducing unwanted areas of the fat using radiofrequency technology. Exilis is completed as a series of sessions and gently warms the skin to encourage collagen growth and reduce unwanted fat.
Dr. Palm is an expert in the use of Exilis to tighten and tone skin, remove stubborn fat deposits, and for body contouring without surgery. She serves as a clinical investigator, advisory board member, and speaker for BTL, the maker of Exilis.
Injectable Filler Packages:
What is Plasma Rich Fibrin (PRF)?
Plasma Rich Fibrin (PRF) is a natural substance derived from a patient’s own blood. PRF is obtained by taking a small amount of the patient’s blood and placing it in a centrifuge machine that separates the blood cells and plasma. The plasma is then collected and used for cosmetic procedures. PRF contains a high concentration of platelets, growth factors, and white blood cells, which are important for the body’s natural healing process. It can be injected directly into the skin or mixed with other substances such as hyaluronic acid to enhance its effects.
What is EZgel?
EZgel is a dermal filler that contains PRF and hyaluronic acid. It is used to add volume and contour to areas such as the cheeks, lips, and under-eye area. EZgel works by adding volume to the skin and stimulating collagen production. The hyaluronic acid in EZgel attracts and binds water molecules, which helps to plump and hydrate the skin. The PRF in EZgel contains growth factors that promote tissue regeneration and healing.
EZgel is a versatile cosmetic treatment that can be used in a variety of ways to improve the appearance of the face and other areas of the body. Here are some of the common and lesser used but unique ways EZgel is employed in cosmetic procedures:
- Dermal filler: EZgel is most commonly used as a dermal filler to plump up the skin and fill in wrinkles and fine lines. It can be used to treat a variety of areas, including the cheeks, lips, nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines (lines around the mouth), and chin.
- Periocular rejuvenation (undereye and brow volume loss): EZ gel can be used to replenish lost volume the undereye region to help correct undereye circles, tear troughs and thinning skin. EZgel can also be injected in the brow region to rejuvenate the upper eyelid zone.
- Facial contouring: EZ gel can be used to enhance or contour the cheekbones, jawline, and chin for a more sculpted facial appearance.
- Non-surgical rhinoplasty: EZgel can be used to reshape the nose, correct asymmetry, and improve the appearance of bumps or dips in the bridge of the nose. This is a less common use of EZgel.
- Chin augmentation: EZgel can be used to enhance the chin and improve the overall balance of the face. This is a less common use of EZgel.
- Jawline enhancement: EZgel can be used to create a more defined jawline and improve the overall contour of the face. This is a less common use of EZgel.
- Hand rejuvenation: EZgel can be used to restore lost volume in the hands and improve the appearance of veins and tendons. This is a less common use of EZgel.
- Earlobe rejuvenation: EZgel can be used to plump up sagging or wrinkled earlobes and improve the appearance of earlobe piercings. This is a rare use of EZgel.
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid gel filler used in facial volumizing. The product has been FDA-approved for use since 2003 for facial folds and in 2011 received FDA-approval for lip augmentation. and is also available pre-mixed with the anesthetic lidocaine as Restylane-L®, increasing patient comfort during an injection session. Restylane Contour is used for cheek enhancement and correction of midfacial volume deficiencies and Restylane Kysse is used for lip enhancement and correction of upper lip lines.
Dr. Palm serves as a lecturer and trainer for Galderma, the company that makes Restylane® and Dysport®. In this capacity, she instructs other physicians and injectors on the safety and use of this product. She regularly lecturers at national meetings on the use of dermal fillers for facial revolumizing.
Juvedérm® is a gel-based filler composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural constituent of the dermis, the second layer of skin. Naturally occurring hyaluronic acid lends structure, firmness, and volume to the skin. Although abundant in youth, the passage of time and exposure to environmental factors such as ultraviolet light exposure decreases the presence of hyaluronic acid in the skin. Hyaluronic acid attracts water to the area of placement, “plumping” the treated areas and decreasing the presence of facial lines. Juvederm Voluma is a cheek volumizer that helps provide volume to areas of the face that have deflated and become sunken over time. It lifts tissue, giving a true liquid facelift. Juvederm Vollure is approved for improvement of laugh lines sometimes referred to as nasolabial folds and lasts up to 18 months. It is a versatile filler best used for mild lines and folds around the lower face.
Dr. Palm is a top 100 injector in the U.S. for Sculptra Aesthetic. Approved for over 10 years, this poly-L-lactic acid product helps your body stimulate new collagen growth, working as your own natural “filler.” Sculptra is completed as a series of treatments and provides subtle, but meaningful, volume and restoration to face and body.
Radiesse (calcium hydroxylapatite) is an injectable dermal filler used to correct deep facial folds and wrinkles. It is also FDA-approved for hand rejuvenation. Radiesse is a calcium-based filler and has a similar composition to that of mineralized bone. It is a longer-term filler with results lasting approximately 9 – 12 months. In addition to its immediate skin plumping and wrinkle reducing effects, Radiesse also stimulates your body’s own natural collagen production in the injection area.
Dr. Palm is a nationally recognized cosmetic dermatologist and noted Radiesse dermal filler expert. She serves as a consultant, guest speaker, and Advisory Board member for Merz, the company that makes Radiesse.
Belotero is a temporary hyaluronic acid filler in the same class of fillers as Juvederm, Restylane, and Restylane Lyft. What makes it unique is its area of placement in the skin. Unlike other fillers in its class, Belotero is placed very high up in the dermis, the second layer of the skin. This makes this gel filler effective and safe for erasing fine lines on the face.
Dr. Melanie Palm is an expert in the use of injectable fillers, including Belotero. Belotero is best used to improve the appearance of the super fine lines located around the mouth, cheeks, and eyes.
CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared, controlled cooling device used to target, treat (freeze) and eliminate unwanted fat without surgery or downtime.
