Facial Moles. Who loves their facial moles? Not everyone. Today we’re going to talk about a great way to treat moles with the hybrid laser mole treatment. Facial moles are a common condition found in many people. They can be present at birth or they can develop over the course of a lifetime. Though they are frequently referred to as beauty marks, in many cases they are anything but beautiful. A healthy facial complexion that is clear, bright and glowing sends a message of health and vitality, but pigment spots, bumps, or moles can make us look old, less healthy and less vibrant. Moles … [Read more...] about Medical Minute: Hybrid Laser Mole Treatment
As we age, our faces change in a number of ways. Many people will develop heaviness in the upper lid, which can make them appear tired, sick and older. This heaviness usually is due to two factors, either the eyelid tissue itself or a drooping eyebrow. When the eyebrow is the main factor in upper lid heaviness, it can be resolved a couple of different ways. The first is non-surgical and involves using Botox in a specialized way. This is effective and quick and has the advantage of minimal downtime, but the procedure will need to be repeated again in 4 to 6 months for a continuation of the … [Read more...] about Medical Minute: What is an Endoscopic Browlift?
When a new patient comes in to the office, they know that they want “something” done, but they frequently aren’t exactly sure what it should be. Sometimes they make a vague reference to a friend having gotten fillers and they ask whether that’s the right solution, and a few will even have done the research and mention a product by name. “I need Botox,” they say, or sometimes, “I need Juvederm.” Some even say that they need a facelift. The truth is that there is no one-size-fits-all answer: every patient is different and has different needs, and I work hard to give them the solution that is … [Read more...] about Sculptra vs Other Fillers: Which Is Best?
“Dr. Scheiner is wonderful, like an artist creating a painting." Cindy is a patient who has traveled from Ohio to see Dr. Scheiner three times, and she’s already planning another trip back for next year! The first time she visited was back in 2013. She’d previously had a face lift but was unhappy with the festoons that had appeared under her eyes, and had discussed the idea of having a second surgery with her physician husband. She remembers that one day he was watching television and called for her to come see what he was watching. It was the episode of The Doctors in which Dr. Scheiner … [Read more...] about Patient Success: Amazing Results for Destination Patient
All too often, patients who have undergone facial filler placement or facial surgery will notice that their festoons and malar mounds have become more noticeable. Understanding why this happens requires a deeper understanding about the nature of festoons and malar mounds. A festoon is a medical condition in which the skin of the lower eyelid becomes damaged — usually by the sun. Under normal conditions, elastic and collagen fibers keep the skin taut and tight. These fibers can become damaged by Ultraviolet rays from the sun, and especially by UVA rays. Once damaged, they are no longer able … [Read more...] about Festoons After Fillers

A recent news report detailed a new treatment for an early form of esophagus cancer called Barrett’s Esophagus. Esophageal cancer is one of the fastest growing cancers in America. It is related to chronic acid reflux, a condition which causes stomach acid to leak through a sphincter that separates the stomach from the esophagus. This process damages the esophageal cells, which then become cancerous and potentially deadly. The esophagus is a tube that connects the mouth to the stomach. It lies behind the trachea, which is our body’s breathing tube. The esophagus is separated from the … [Read more...] about RESET® for Sun Damage and the New Treatment of Esophagus Cancer : The Common Link
As I’ve written about before, I’ve seen more problems with fillers placed under the eyes than successes. The only times I’ve found fillers under the eyes to be useful is in the case of young individuals who have true hollowing under the eyes. Otherwise, the idea of “camouflaging” lower lid bags with fillers usually results in more problems than solutions. In my practice, I help many patients from around the world with Malar Mounds, eyelid Festoons and lower lid bags. As a result, I’ve witnessed more and more patients coming to visit me recently with fillers placed under the eyes. This … [Read more...] about Dissolving Fillers Under the Eyes
As I’ve written in the past, we are very social beings and we yearn to connect with one another. Unfortunately, sometimes through birth and sometimes with age, our faces can convey a message that is inconsistent with the way we feel inside. This miscommunication can occur when heavy upper lids or baggy lower lids with Festoons or Malar Mounds make us appear tired, sick or older than we really are. It can also occur when our inner brow furrows and the corners of our mouth starts to droop. I recently saw a video featuring a comedian speaking about her “Bitchy Resting Face.” In it, she … [Read more...] about The Deeper Meaning Behind “Bitchy Resting Face”
The aging process can lead both men and women to develop dark circles under their eyes. There are a number of different things that cause these dark circles, but one of the most common causes is the shifting of fat from around the eyes to under the eyes. What Are “Bags,” And How Can They Be Fixed? As we age, certain natural changes occur to our faces in general and our eye region in particular. First, the eye socket changes and enlarges, allowing the fat around the eyes to shift to a more forward location, as shown by research performed by Dr. Robert Shaw at the University of … [Read more...] about Is There a Role for Fillers for Under-Eye Bags?
I help patients from around the globe with my sun damage restoring facial rejuvenation techniques, and lately I’ve been seeing more and more patients from the United Kingdom. Many come to me for help with conditions known as lower eyelid Festoons and Malar Mounds. Curious as to why this is the case, I began to hypothesize why so many people from the United Kingdom might suffer from Festoons and Malar Mounds. The reason, I’ve come to discover, is rooted in understanding the causes of lower eyelid Festoons and Malar Mounds. The Role of Skin Type in Festoon and Malar Mound … [Read more...] about Festoons and Malar Mounds Treatment and the United Kingdom
