a decrease in breast tissue elasticity due to genetics, pregnancy and/or time can result in a loss of the youthful position. depending on the degree of ptosis or descent, various methods of lifting may be available. often augmentation with either synthetic implants such as saline or silicone or one's own fat used to fill up the breast can result in an acceptable lift.
dr. richard e. buckley and dr. marina buckley of milfordmd cosmetic dermatology surgery & laser center in milford, pa announce that a new technology for treating acne, improving skin texture and reducing spots and lesions caused by sun exposure is now available at their office. this treatment, called photodynamic therapy (pdt), is used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, reduce pore size and acne scars to give skin a smoother texture, treat rosacea and pre-cancerous lesions and diminish the oil glands that contribute to acne.
lasers have been used for many years for a variety of medical cosmetic procedures including treatment of facial and leg veins, age spots and rejuvenating the skin on the face. the gentlelase system, a revolutionary long-pulse high energy alexandrite laser emits a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle where it is absorbed. the laser energy is transformed into heat, which destroys the hair follicle leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.
our patients receive the benefits of the laser system considered by physicians world-wide as the "gold standard" for the treatment of a wide variety of vascular skin conditions. more than 15 years ago, the candela laser corporation first invented pulsed dye laser technology.
sclerotherapy is a proven medical treatment used to eliminate leg veins. tiny needles are used to inject an fda approved sclerosing substance into undesirable veins. at milfordmd we no longer use hypertonic saline as a sclerosant because there are more effective, more comfortable options. our favorite sclerosing substances used to close viens are sts (sodium tetradocyl sulfate) and asclera.
