March is National Women’s History Month, a month dedicated to the significant contributions many women have made to society over the course of time. At Russak Dermatology Clinic and Russak+ Aesthetic Center, we are so proud to be part of the movement to empower women and girls. We empower other women by giving them a safe space where they can discuss their goals whether it be medical or aesthetic or even personal goals for growth.
Aesthetic medicine is one part of so many of our patients’ healthy lifestyles. It is empowering to take care of your body, your skin, and your mind, so you can feel your best and play an active role with us in doing so.
At Russak Dermatology Clinic, we believe in enhancing a woman’s natural beauty through healthy lifestyle changes, anti-aging prevention, and natural, subtle treatments that allow women to feel confident and healthy. It is our honor to help make patients look as good as they feel on the inside. We applaud you for taking control of your health and well-being and we are proud to be part of your journey. There are so many ways we can help women feel good about themselves and we love giving each individual patient personalized tools to be their healthiest, happiest, most beautiful self.
Read below to find out our providers’ favorite treatments that empower themselves!
DR. RUSSAK: My favorite treatment is Vivace RF Microneedling. Unfortunately, there is no magic anti-aging pill, and the same as with toning your body and needing to train different muscle groups, the same is with the skin. Different procedures and different modalities are needed to achieve that perfect healthy skin. Vivace is radiofrequency microneedling; it is actually two procedures in one: microneedling, which is collagen induction on the surface, and then radiofrequency, which stimulates collagen and elastin in the deeper layers for skin tightness and lift. I always pair it with PRP to decrease my downtime and increase collagen stimulation results by adding growth factors and stimulants from my own PRP. I love that I can do it in the evening and be back to work in the morning. My face looks slightly pink, but I do not mind it for about 24 hours: the results are worth it. I use it on my face, around my eyes and my neck. If I had more time in the day I would definitely do it on my whole body!
DR. DOYLE: Filler is my favorite treatment because it can literally breathe life back into someone’s face and neck area. Within a matter of minutes, it can make someone feel like themselves again and it allows me to add the right contour, volume, and shape to anyone’s face without making them look like they’ve had anything done. It’s an instant confidence boost!
IRIS LOOI: My favorite treatment is our signature Hair Restoration package. Many of our female patients are very conscious of their hair thinning. Our comprehensive treatment which includes supplements, topical medications, and microneedling with PRP injections, is able to provide women with a new sense of confidence and femininity.
MEREDITH: My favorite treatment is IPL (intense pulse light) laser. This photofacial treatment targets brown sun damage, redness, and red capillaries all the while boosting collagen and elastin for a transformative glowing complexion. The neck, chest, and hands are also popular treatment areas. You can see sunspots “pick up” right before your eyes within minutes of receiving the treatment. Patients are often surprised by how much damage surfaces and how bright their skin looks after just one session. Longer-term photorejuvenation effects include skin tightening and fine line and wrinkle reduction. IPL can also be combined with other lasers or microneedling in one session to kick up the anti-aging process. Patients often feel shame about the sun damage they have acquired over the years, so I love being able to give them a second chance at healthy skin.
CHRISTINA: My favorite treatment is the Erbium Yag Laser. It helps turn back time by resurfacing the top layer of the skin, reducing the appearance of sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles and therefore, improving overall skin tone and texture.
WHITNEY: My favorite treatment is Ultherapy Ultrasound Skin Tightening. Ulthera provides the foundation for all other treatments by lifting and tightening the skin non-surgically with little to no downtime. It’s the ultimate anti-aging way to avoid a facelift further down the line, something that many female patients come to us for. This treatment can restore a sagging neck and jawline, diminish eyelid hooding, soften jowls, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds, all while stimulating collagen and elastin at a deeper depth of the skin than other lasers. This treatment can be safely combined with other procedures that together offer a true 3D, full-face Restoration. Don’t forget Ulthera for the body too, Jennifer Lopez’s not so secret go-to treatment!
