Dr. Alex has been involved in the field of dermatology since 2000 and has done thousands of cosmetic treatments. With this experience, he has developed a comprehensive approach to addressing his patients' skin concerns. The most common concerns in aging skin are wrinkles, loose skin, uneven color, and textural irregularities such as enlarged pores. Some of the many causes of these changes include sun damage, loss of volume over time, loss of collagen, genetics, and stress. And some changes like wrinkles have different causes depending on where they are on the face. For example wrinkles on the upper face are usually from muscle expression whereas those in the lower face are usually secondary to volume and collagen loss. In order to address each concern, we need to understand the cause. And since there are many concerns and many causes for these concerns, Dr. Alex has developed a comprehensive approach to the skin which is customized for each person. The foundation begins with a good medical grade skin care regimen with sunscreen, collagen boosters such as retin-A, color correctors such as hydroquinone, exfoliants such as salicylic acid, antioxidants such as vitamin C, and hydrating products such as hyaluronic acid. When people start on a full regimen, they usually notice improvement in the first few weeks. With years of experience Dr. Alex has created the A E Skin line of products with a guarantee that if you use the products daily for three months and do not see improvements in your skin as evident by your photographs you will get your money back. This guaranteewas made for two reasons. First many people have used so many products on their skin that have not worked that they are skeptical about new products. Second, over five years of carrying these products and thousands of patients, Dr. Alex has never had a single patient who used the full regimen without getting results in three months or less. This regimen will set the backbone to skin rejuvenation by protecting your skin from the sun and correcting some of the damage. Many of these products are now available on our online store. Injectable treatments are complementary to a skin care regimen. Botox will relax muscles and smoothen out wrinkles such as the frown lines and crow's feet. Fillers such as Voluma, Juvederm, and Restylane will restore lost volume providing the youthful apple of the cheeks and improvement of laugh lines. Ultherapy works as the non-surgical facelift alternative to give your skin a boost of collagen and tighten the skin. Laser treatments such as the Forever Young BBL IPL photofacial, Micro Laser Peel, Laser Skin Tightening, and Pro Fractional Therapy can address uneven color, redness, fine lines, enlarged pores, and acne scars. Often times these treatments are combined to provide even better results. Dr. Alex has designed the Soft and Smooth Rejuvenation, Tight and Bright Rejuvenation, Fountain of Youth Rejuvenation, Weekend Rejuvenation, and Ultimate Rejuvenation. Chemical peels can also address many of these issues and are appropriate for many people.
