THE ROSENGAUS METHODTOTAL FACIAL BALANCE
The Rosengaus Method is a standard thought algorithm that makes possible the correct evaluation of our patient results. This quality process of continuous improvement has the central objective of patients finding out the true meaning of beauty and this beauty being reflected in their faces. This is what we call total facial balance.
The procedure starts with a conversation between doctor and patient in which they synchronize their concept of beauty. Once this has been achieved, we can easily predict that the patient will observe a facial balance that not necessarily means looking younger (though this can happen), but looking very good for his age, moving away from the traditional images of overdone and unnatural results.
Afterwards, we make a diagnosis of the particular aging process occurring in this particular patient and moment. Once its causes had been determined, we design an aesthetic approach for his face in accordance to a detailed anatomic and physiological point of view.
The next step is the implementation of the techniques and rejuvenation treatments. In this stage, the doctor makes little adjustments to any face imperfections until reaching the final point: total facial balance.
Most important, for every patient a follow up program will be design in order to maintain the attained beauty over many years.
HAPPY FACE TREATMENT
The application of the Rosengaus Method is explained by a series of exclusive treatments by Dr. Frank by which a patient recovers his/her self-esteem. This new gain confidence is seen in a happy face after an adequate facial treatment.
It is proven that the happier a person is, the more chances to accomplish his goals, for example, to find a partner, to get their ideal weight, to achieve professional success and economic stability, among other things.
The idea is to see smiling patients who recognize their inner and external beauty and therefore are able to convey this positive feeling to others.
DIAGNOSISFACIAL COMPUTER ANALYSIS
Detects and quantifies solar damage, hyperpigmentation, age spots and vascular lesions. This is the only system that can objectively assess the results of any performed treatment.
The study consists of taking several ultrahigh definition photographs in a standardized way from different angles, compiling the images by a specialized software and examine them with polarized ultraviolet light or refracted light which provides the doctor and patient with valuable information. Finally, a report with the findings is carried out along with the recommendations determined by the specialist physician.
Blepharoplasty is the medical term that describes surgery of the eyelids. It is a surgical aesthetic or functional procedure that remodels the upper or lower eyelid by eliminating or repositioning excess of tissue like fat and skin while strengthening surrounding muscles and tendons. If only the upper eyelid is needed, the surgery lasts around 45 minutes and the recuperation time required is 3 to 5 days.
The incision is completely unnoticeable and the results extremely natural.
Otoplasty is a simple surgery that is recommended to be performed around age 6, before starting school, but as we can imagine, many people make the decision to go through this kind of intervention until adulthood. Not all prominent ears have the same morphology, we have to distinguish between those in which the auricles are forming a wider angle with the temporal area that makes them look protuberant and the ones that are notorious for their size.
In the first case, we approximate the ears to the head making an incision in the posterior part, allowing to accommodate the cartilage. In the second case, cartilage size is modified by performing a similar kind of intervention.
Surgery lasts around two hours and only local anesthesia is required being an ambulatory surgery. Recovery is very simple; the patient needs to avoid hard physical activity and wear an elastic bandage for about three days. As the incision is quite small, there is no big discomfort and you get immediate results.
We know the neck is a special area that shows different signs of aging sometimes earlier than the face. This can be taken care of by using innovative techniques, many of them non-invasive. Examples could be the use of botulinum toxin for the platysma bands or the use of lipodissolve for fat accumulation.
This treatment can provide total balance to the face and jaw line. A small and relapsing chin can make the nose appear to be bigger or over projected. Digital simulations allow us to come up with a decision. This procedure lasts approximately 60 minutes and can be done under local anesthesia and/or little sedation.For permanent results a silicon implant is inserted through a small incision under the chin. Non-permanent immediate results can be achieved with the use of specific fillers lasting around 18 months.
This surgical procedure, technically known as rhytidectomy, improves visible aging effects in face and neck. Today is still considered the ideal treatment for many cases of general face skin laxity, mid face resuspension, jaw formation and /or neck skin redundancy.
Rhinoplasty, which means change in the form of the nose, is one of the most popular surgical procedures, especially in younger patients. Functionality is addressed at the same time than the aesthetics. Normally the surgery is done under general anesthesia or deep sedation, lasts around 2 hours and the recovery time is between 7 to 10 days. The full results evaluation should wait about 6 months. Even though in good hands this is a proven treatment and the results should be pretty predictable, some patients are concern about the chance of complications or unfavorable aesthetic outcomes.
Recently a new option has been available for some adequately selected noses that we have named Rhinoscuplt. It Is remodeling the nose with the application of fillers. Safe and proven, it is performed in 15 minutes, it has excellent and immediate results and no recovery time or anesthesia. It is actually so safe that if needed the product can be erased with a special enzyme. It is the number one solicited treatment in our office being Dr. Rosengaus the world leader in this technique.
NON INVASIVE /MINIMALLY INVASIVE PROCEDURES
This is a treatment that restores hydro balance to the skin and improves its tone and elasticity. We all know that after some time skin quality changes resulting in roughness, dryness and less elasticity. Our biological clock plays an important role in this process, but also does the life style. Factors like sun exposure, smoking, drinking alcohol are key as well. The product, a hyaluronic acid, is applied with the finest of needles under the skin and is painless. This treatment can be used to enhance face, décolletage, hands and neck. It gives a skin a radiant appearance as it delicately and naturally smooths and hydrates from the inside. As an added benefit the need for hydrating creams is greatly diminished.
We all like the appearance of a tanned skin. It is perceived as a sign of health. Nonetheless in the long term sun exposure is the main factor in the appearance of skin cancer. It also decreases the production of collagen and elastin resulting in a markedly thinner skin, with multiple fine lines (wrinkles), with some vascular damage and a reddish and tired look.
The ideal treatment to counteract these effects is a fractionate laser. It is by far the “gold standard” by which we can accelerate cellular renewal in the superficial layers of the skin. It erases the skin memory of sun damage while selectively stimulating the new production of collagen and elastin and making the skin tighter and thicker. It takes around 50 minutes for a full face. Being a sophisticated peeling, the post treatment recuperation time is about 7 to 10 days during which the skin goes through its reparation process. During this time sun exposure should be avoided at all cost. The results will last around 2 years.
An important percentage of the population suffers from some sort of vascular unsightly imperfection. From the simplest one like spider veins and red spots up to the appearance of hemangioma, their treatment with specific laser is fast and effective. Leg telangiectasias and varicose veins are also amenable for this modality. Multiple sessions might be needed.
Many times fat deposits itself in the worst places, unbalancing our aesthetic appearance. In the face this area will be the fat below the chin (submental fat) or also called double chin. The traditional treatment for submental fat removal is surgically through a small incision or with liposuction. Recently a “new” minimally invasive treatment has been approved by the FDA. It consists of the application of a fat cell eliminating substance that can reduce significantly its amount while shaping and refining adjacent areas like the jaw and mandibular border. Significant side effects of redness, pain and inflammation are to be expected for 4 or 5 days post treatment. This product is extremely effective and safe in other areas of the body like the loving handles, bra fat, inner thighs and lower abdomen.
This is today, the most advance noninvasive safe treatment available for skin tightening, elimination of flaccid skin, fine skin wrinkling and as a collagen stimulator. Is an amazing complement to any other type of face procedure. All of the later also make it ideal to treat the most common types of cellulite! It delivers through special algorithms gradual heating of the deep skin. It can be use everywhere and requires a series of sessions, normally between 8 and 12 depending on the severity. The treatments last less than an hour, are basically painless and feel more like a deep massage.
The hallmark of the aging face is loss of volume over time. Hyaluronic acid fillers have become the most popular soft tissue filler augmentation agents over the past several years. They act like an inflated cushion to support facial structures that may have lost volume or elasticity due to normal aging. It also brings water to the surface of the skin to keep it looking fresh and supple.
We use it to eliminate wrinkles, creases and folds but more interestingly they are also a nonsurgical alternative to facial implants, to make cheek or chin augmentation, to do a full nose remodeling; to improve the area under the eyes, to fill in fine lips, to give a nice ovality to the whole face, etc. etc. In essence we can achieve a total face balance with the professional smart use of fillers and the results are amazing, natural, immediate, safe and more economical than surgery. They are not permanent so they let us adjust to the aging process of each patient and just in case we also have a bio eraser!
The newest addition to our armamentarium, these brand new and FDA approved suspension sutures are absorbable, eliminating most of the previous generation thread side effects and complications. Is a facial rejuvenation procedure aim at elevating the flaccid facial tissue of the brow, mid-face, jaw and neck areas. The technique consists on the threading under the skin of these specific sutures that have attachment cones and are called Silhouette Lift with only a little local anesthesia required. It takes around 20 minutes to do. Some post treatment swelling and/or bruising is to be expected. The results last close to 18 months but there is also some residual benefit from the collagen stimulation of the area by the suture.
Botox is the most popular cosmetic surgery treatment, with more than 6 million Botox treatments administered each year just in the US. Botox is a neurotoxin derived from Clostridium botulinum, an organism found in the natural environment where it is largely inactive and non-toxic. Botulinum toxin is used to reduce active fine lines and wrinkles produced by the underlying muscles. We also also use Botox to treat excessive sweating, migraines, muscular disorders, and some bladder and bowel disorders. The application of botulinum toxin is the safest procedure having being used for more than 25 years in all kinds of pathologies. It is especially quick and effective in diminishing and preventing facial lines in the forehead, “crow’s feet” lines and frowning lines. It is a painless application that takes no more than 10 minutes and which effects will last between 3 to 6 months.
