Acupuncture 101Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing & improve function. This is done by inserting sterilized, stainless-steel needles (that are as fine as a human hair) into specific points located near or on the surface of the skin which have the ability to alter various biochemical & physiological conditions in order to treat a wide variety of illnesses. Traditional Chinese medicine views a person as an energy system inwhich body & mind are unified, each influencing & balancing the other. Unlike Western medicine which attempts to isolate & separate a disease from a person, Chinese Medicine emphasizes a holistic approach that treats the whole person. At SkinHealth, our licensed acupuncturist & traditional Chinese medicine practitioner, Stacey Flutem, will make a Chinese medical diagnosis based upon a thorough examination & consultation. The examination includes the assessment of the pulse & tongue. Once a diagnosis is made, your acupuncturist will choose the most appropriate acupuncture points for treatment. Schedule a complimentary consultation w/ Stacey.

Microdermabrasion 101Microdermabrasion is an advanced clinical skin rejuvenation treatment designed to help reverse the signs of aging & the damage of past sun exposure. After a consultation w/ a SkinHealth Center professional, your own microdermabrasion program will be developed based on your unique needs. During the microdermabrasion treatment, a stream of very fine mineral crystals is blown across the skin's surface to buff away or "exfoliate" the outermost layer of dead & damaged skin cells. Simultaneously, the exfoliated skin cells are then gently vacuumed away revealing younger, fresher skin. Immediately after the first treatment you will see a difference - your skin will have a fresh glow & feel smoother & softer. Each procedure lasts approximately thirty minutes, is painless, & progressive improvement in the skin will be noted w/ each treatment.

Botox, Facial Fillers and other Injectables
Botox Treatments for Men & WomenIf your facial expression lines are making you look older than you are or are giving you the appearance of a frown or scowl, then you are an excellent candidate for a BOTOX® treatment. People often dislike their central scowl lines (called glabellar lines), which are ca used by forehead muscles contracting when concentrati ng, squinting, or frowning. As we laugh, cry, frown or smile, we contract the delicate underlying muscles in our face, & sooner or later, we pay the price - frown lines, worry lines, crow's eyes... Injections of the purified protein Botulinum toxin A are utilized to temporarily block nerve impulses & weaken the muscles that cause those so-called "dynamic" lines. Your unwanted lines fade away within days of treatment, creating a younger & more relaxed appearance. There is no recovery or downtime. Botox is injected in tiny amounts into the muscles that create the lines. No anesthesia is required, although your doctor may choose to numb the area w/ a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting. Discomfort is usually minimal & brief. After the injection, the nerve impulses are blocked & the muscle weakens. This weakness lasts for between three & six months at which time injections can be repeated. You can expect to see results within days after your treatment, & the appearance of the area treated may continue to improve for up to a week.
Dysport TreatmentsDysport is a substance that is safely used to inactivate muscle movement that creates the lines & wrinkles in the forehead, the vertical glabellar folds between the eyebrows & the "crow's feet" area near the eyes. DYSPORT® prevents the muscles from contracting & allows the overlying skin to relax & assume a non-wrinkled appearance.
Xeomin Injectable Treatments for Men & WomenXeomin, the latest botulinum toxin type A injectable, is also called the “naked injectable,” meaning that it does not contain any additives. The major benefit of a pure-form injectable is that the human body is less likely to become resistant to Xeomin because there are simply less ingredients in the solution. Xeomin has been used extensively across Europe to diminish wrinkles & give patients a younger, refreshed look. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved Xeomin in July 2011 for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines, or frown lines between the eyebrows, in adult patients.
Facial Fillers & VolumizersRestylane, juvederm ultra, radiesse, sculptra treatments. All natural cosmetic dermal fillers are designed to restore volume & fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles & folds, such as nasolabial folds (the lines from the outside of the nose to the mouth.) Hyaluronic acid-based fillers. These are safe & natural cosmetic dermal fillers that replace lost volume & restore youthful fullness & contours to the skin. Fillers are injected to smooth away facial wrinkles & folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). These fillers are smooth- consistency gels made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin. These fillers provide a smooth natural look & feel. They are made of non-animal based hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body & is used to provide volume & fullness to the skin. Studies have shown that the average treatment lasts six months or even longer. They contain a unique technology that helps to maintain the effect until the injected material is almost gone. Additional studies have shown that the effect can last up to 18 months following a specific protocal. Restylane & Juviderm are the two most widely used fillers & are appropriate for most indications.
Belotero Dermal FillerAs we age, our skin inevitably loses its youthful appearance as the production of natural dermal volumisers & moisturisers such as hyaluronic acid (HA) diminish, leaving lines & wrinkles where our skin was once youthful, even & radiant. Belotero is an HA dermal filler, made of the same volumising & moisturising component of your skin, so it is the natural choice for reducing the appearance of lines & wrinkles. When injected, it instantly plumps & adds volume to the areas where it has been lost. Even the finest lines can be treated w/ confidence w/ Belotero Belotero is specially designed to integrate into your tissue to provide subtle & even results without disrupting the natural contours of your face, so you can be confident that no one will ever know how you manage to look so refreshed & confident.
Juvederm Facial Dermal FillerAs we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles & folds form. But, w/ JUVÉDERM® injectable gel, you don't have to just sit back & let it happen! Juvederm is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume & hydration. Your healthcare professional eases JUVÉDERM® injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin's volume & smooth away facial wrinkles & folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). Juvederm provides a smooth, natural look & feel—so everyone will notice (but no one will know)! In fact, studies show superior results of JUVÉDERM® compared to a collagen-based dermal filler.
Radiesse Dermal Filler TreatmentsRadiesse is a safe, next generation dermal filler that does more than just fill in lines & wrinkles - it volumizes. In fact, Radiesse® is setting a new standard in facial fold & wrinkle correction. This treatment restores a natural, youthful look that lasts. In many patients, the results may last for a year or more. Numerous medical studies have shown that Radiesse® is a safe & effective treatment for filling & correcting smile lines, nasolabial folds, & wrinkles around the nose & mouth. Radiesse® stimulates the body to produce new collagen. This unique response provides immediate, visible improvement of folds & wrinkles, & provides long-lasting & beautiful results. Radiesse is made of unique calcium-based micro-spheres that are suspended in a water-based gel & injected into the skin through a simple, safe, & minimally invasive procedure.
Restylane Facial Filler TreatmentsRestylane is a brand name, & is a non-surgical beauty treatment to smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles & folds. Restylane is a safe & natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume & fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles & folds, such as nasolabial folds (the lines from the outside of the nose to the mouth.) Restylane is made of non-animal based hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body & is used to provide volume & fullness to the skin. Studies have shown that the average treatment lasts six to eighteen months. It contains a unique technology that helps to maintain the effect until the injected material is almost gone.
Sculptra Aesthetic - A Longer-Lasting FillerSculptra aesthetic gradually replaces lost collagen, a key structural component that keeps skin youthful looking & smooth. As you age, your body's collagen production decreases, & you may begin to see wrinkles. Sculptra Aesthetic works to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles & folds, as it replaces lost collagen, which can help provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance. Sculptra aesthetic works to replace lost collagen in a series of treatments administered by a Sculptra trained physician or nurse. On average, three injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months. The number of injection sessions & the number of injections per session vary from person to person. Sculptra aesthetic works within the deep dermis, your skin's structure is reinforced as Sculptra Aesthetic helps to replace lost collagen. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles & folds that has been depleted over time.
Liquid FaceliftThe liquid facelift is a non-surgical facelift. It is a technique that uses various dermal fillers & injectables to restore volume to create a fuller, more youthful & energetic appearance – without the need for surgery. During the natural aging process, the face loses fullness, largely due to the breakdown of collagen, a naturally occurring agent that causes skin to appear plump, firm, & young. Facial muscles & skin begins to sag, & the overall effect makes men & women look considerably older than they are – & certainly older than they feel. Using fillers & other injectables, such as Botox, cosmetic specialists can recreate the effect of a more youthful facial appearance, filling hollows, reducing or eliminating lines & wrinkles, & firming skin.

Fractional LaserFractional laser treatments are the newest form of laser skin rejuvenation. Utilizing advanced laser technology, it is the treatment of choice for fine lines & improved skin texture & appearance.

The process is ideal for patients w/ active lifestyles because the procedure requires no downtime & has a low risk of side effects.
Vascular LaserVascular Laser can treat the following conditions:Options:
Broken capillaries, Spider veins, Rosacea
The vascular laseroffers improved treatment for broken cappilaries, rosacea, & spider veins. Treatment will vary depending upon patient characteristics & the area being treated. Treatment sessions typically take 10-30 minutes & a treatment program may consist of several office visits.
Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery or BlepharoplastyEyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, (or, slang, "eye job") is an operation that corrects sagging, or drooping eyelids as well as bags & bulges around the eyes. These conditions develop as a result of laxity of the eyelid skin & protrusion of fat around the eyes. It is not limited to older patients, as many individuals inherit a predisposition toward development of fat pouches at an early age. Excess skin is treated by excision or occasionally by laser resurfacing. If excess fat is present, it can be removed simultaneously. Surgical correction is appropriate for all age groups. In some cases, the condition will be caused by other medical problems such as allergy or thyroid disorders. In these patients, the proper treatment may be medical rather than surgical.
Blepharoplasty or Eyelids SurgeryThe procedure can be performed in Dr. Daniel Townsend's Boston office under local anesthesia.
Upper EyelidsExcess skin & fat are removed from the upper lid through an incision hidden in the natural eyelid crease. If the lid is droopy, the muscle that raises the upper lid can be tightened. The incision is then closed w/ very fine sutures. Because the incision follows the natural contour of the upper eyelid, it usually is inconspicuous.
Lower EyelidsTo remove the fatty deposits beneath the eyes, the incisions are placed just inside the lower eyelid, therefore invisible. After the fat is removed, the incisions may be closed w/ absorbable sutures or may be left to heal naturally. When excess skin & muscle need to be removed from the lower lids, the incisions are placed just below the lash line & the incision is closed w/ very fine sutures.
Facelift ProcedureFacelifts are performed in outpatient surgical centers or in an accredited physician’s office. For mini-facelifts, local anesthesia is most commonly used, w/ premedication to help you relax. For full face-lifts, general anesthesia is often preferred. The surgeon will make incisions inside the hairline at the temple, in front of the ear, then around the earlobe & behind the ear, ending at the scalp area. Excess skin is removed & sagging muscles & connective tissues are tightened. In some cases, fatty deposits are removed from beneath the chin & neck. Incisions are closed w/ small sutures. The procedure may take up to 5 hours depending on whether any procedures are performed at the same time.
Mini-faceliftsMini-facelifts or lower facelifts are not as extensive as afull facelift. We can explain the differences to you during your consultation.
Neck LiftsNeck lifts may be a part of the full facelift, or they can be performed seperately.
RhinoplastyAlso known as Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) is an operation to improve the shape & size of the nose so that it is in harmony w/ the rest of the face. Rhinoplasty is essentially a surgical sculpting of the nose & is accomplished by careful contouring of the bone & cartilage giving the nose its shape. At the same time deformities that cause breathing problems & some sinus disorders can be corrected. Most incisions (seamless rhinoplasty) are placed inside the nose where they are least visible. Rhinoplasty is often an enhancement to facial rejuvenation, particularly in the correction of the aging nose (drooping of the tip). A significant “combo” effect is seen w/ facial augmentation in conjunction w/ cosmetic nasal surgery. In most instances, change in appearance can be seen immediately. While the shape of your nose is usually the result of heredity, the appearance may have been altered in an injury or during prior surgery.
Breast ImplantsBreast enlargement, or augmentation mammoplasty, enhances the body contour of a woman who is unhappy w/ her breast size. It may also be used to correct volume loss after pregnancy, or to help balance breast size asymmetries, as well as a reconstructive technique following other breast surgery. While breast augmentation will enlarge the breasts, it will not alter basic defects in breast shape or form. Major asymmetries may be improved but will not be completely corrected. A slight difference in the size or shape of the two breasts is considered normal & should not be a cause for concern. If breast size or nipple position asymmetries are severe then additional procedures to further improve symmetry may be necessary. Long experience w/ this operation has demonstrated it to have highly satisfactory results for the majority of patients who are considered suitable candidates for the surgery. Also known as augmentation mammaplasty, breast enlargement surgery involves using breast implants to fulfill your desire for fuller breasts (breast enlargement) or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy (breast enhancement).
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)The tummy tuck is an operation that is designed to remove excess skin from the abdomen & at the same time, tighten the abdominal muscles. It is indicated in cases where there is laxity of the abdomen resulting in bulging due to abnormal stretching of the abdominal muscles & skin. Unlike liposuction surgery, which just removes fat, this operation involves removal of skin & fat, w/ tightening of the abdominal muscles. For this reason, it is more extensive than liposuction. The actual extent of surgery will depend on the amount of excess skin & the laxity of the abdominal muscles.
Liposuction and Body contouring
LiposuctionLiposuction is a very common, popular procedure. It is designed for the permanent removal of fatty tissue, commonly referred to as “cellulite.” It is an elective procedure that allows the cosmetic surgeon to remove undesirable, subcutaneous fat in isolated areas that do not respond to diet & exercise. These areas include the hips, thighs, abdomen, knees, ankles, face & neck. Liposuction is most successful in people w/ good skin tone who have fatty deposits. It is not a treatment for obesity. If weight gain occurs following liposuction, the fat will be deposited in areas that have not been treated. The procedure can be repeated, if necessary. To maintain the safety of the procedure, there is a limit on how much can be done at one time. A variety of factors can affect the results: Physical condition, genetic makeup, diet, exercise, smoking, alcohol intake, & skin elasticity. The results of liposuction are permanent. If you were to gain a large amount of weight you might note rippling in the treated areas, depending on your skin elasticity. Despite good health & a reasonable level of fitness, some people may still have a body w/ disproportionate contours due to localized fat deposits. These areas may be due to family traits rather than a lack of weight control or fitness. Liposuction slims & reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours & proportion, & ultimately, enhancing your self-image.
Upper Arm LiftOver time, gravity gets the best of us all. Skin that becomes droopy & unattractive can be enhanced through a series of lifts. Lifts can be utilized on most areas of the body from head to toe. Arm, thigh & face are the most common areas while buttocks lifts are growing in popularity. Lifts are also beneficial to stomach-staple patients who lose a large amount of weight & are looking to remove the excess skin that many patients develop. Liposuction can be used in place of an arm lift in special instances where there is excess fat but the skin is still tight. If the skin is loose, however, the only method for correction is the arm lift. The drawback to the lift procedure is the noticeable scarring. Scarring therefore is the trade-off. Many people find that they prefer the scarring over the excess tissue & also find that the scarring can fade over time. Also known as brachioplasty, an arm lift reshapes the under portion of the upper arm, from the underarm region to the elbow. Fluctuations in weight, growing older & even heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. Exercise may strengthen & improve the underlying muscle tone of the upper arm, but it cannot address excess skin that has lost elasticity or underlying weakened tissues & localized fat deposits. If the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose & full due to excess skin & fat, an arm lift may be right for you.
Thigh LiftThigh lift is surgery that removes excess skin & fat from your thighs. The goal of the procedure is to improve the appearance of your thighs by removing the “dimpled look” produced by cellulite. Some surgeons say the procedure is more effective for the front & side thigh areas, less effective for the back & inside areas. The incision does leave a scar at the hip, but it fades in time & can be hidden by a bathing suit. A thigh lift reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, & in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin & better-proportioned contours of the thighs & lower body. If fitness & weight loss efforts have not achieved your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking & more proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical thigh lift may be right for you.
Lash Extensions Look Totally NaturalAccording to ABC 7 news style watch. "Style Watch: eyelash extensions ever wonder how stars like Jennifer Lopez, Oprah, Naomi Campbell, Nicole Kidman, & others have long lush lashes that seem to be flawless & "bling the blink"? Most wear eyelash extensions. The new lash extension craze started in Asia, has swept through Europe & now is taking the USA by storm. Soon to be a staple service, the American woman is dumping the mascara wand for this no clumps, no smudges, hypoallergenic, waterproof, 24/7 "glam" eye. And for the contact wearer/allergic person, extensions are a MUST. For those who remember the traditional false eyelashes, you will be wowed by the technology change. Traditional false eyelashes are usually made w/ a strip or w/ multiple lashes knotted together & are applied directly on to the eyelid using adhesive formulas that dry hard on the eyelid & lashes - a source of major discomfort to the wearer. "
Laser Hair RemovalUnwanted hair can be a nightmare. Until now the only options for removing unwanted hair were smelly creams, sharp razors, stinging wax or painful electrolysis needles. Laser hair removal puts an end to your routine. Lasers produce an intense beam of light which is directed to the hair follicles to disable them so they can no longer produce hair. Any part of the face or body can be treated. The result is smooth, sleek skin. Laser hair removal is available lin Boston, Wellesley & Chestnut Hill.
Fractional Laser & E-MatrixUnlike other types of laser skin resurfacing that require significant downtime, this latest treatment will leave your face looking smoother, younger & more attractive than ever.

When therapy is done in fractions, this allows the skin to rapidly recover w/ little downtime. Further the side effects w/ this type of therapy are less & complications are very rare. In most cases, the old damaged skin is replaced by the new skin within a few days.

LatisseLatisse is the first prescription treatment approved by the FDA for the treatment of small or thin eyelash growth. When applied regularly on a daily basis, the Latisse product can result in the growth of significantly longer, fuller, darker upper eyelid lashes. The product was discovered by researchers who were working on another eye care product, & quickly marketed for lash growth. The mechanism of the product’s active ingredient, called bimatoprost, is not known precisely, but researchers believe the results are due to an increase of the percentage of lash development during the lash growth phase. About 80% of Latisse users report seeing a significant increase in the growth & fullness of lashes.
