RYE BROOK, NY, May 22, 2013 /PressRelease/ —Abadir Associates, a Westchester County cosmetic dermatology clinic that specializes in combining treatments for optimal results, is offering a new technique designed to smooth and thicken thin skin on the neck.  The practice has successfully treated multiple patients over the past year and seen dramatic results.

“Basically, [this approach] is for women who want to do everything but a neck lift,” says Westchester dermatologist Dr. Michelle Abadir of Abadir Associates.  “It allows you to add another method to thicken up the neck skin, which can be difficult.”  Normal aging may cause the skin of the neck to become thinner, bumpy, and nodular as well as to lose elasticity – thus allowing it to take on a “crepe-y” appearance.  By addressing these issues with one treatment program, she can offer patients a stronger result without needing to resort to surgical techniques.

The treatment program involves combining the dermal filler Sculptra with wrinkle-releaser Botox and skin-tightening treatment Thermage to combine the benefits of all three.  Additionally, Dr. Abadir is the only dermatologist who offers diluted Sculptra treatments for a significantly more natural result.  By diluting the injectable down to one-quarter its usual strength (and gradually increasing the concentration every few months as the treatment progresses), Dr. Abadir is able to combine Sculptra perfectly with Botox and Thermage.

The program can be customized to suit each patient, and many may choose to combine Sculptra with only Botox or only Thermage.  Dr. Abadir reports that her favorite treatment plan involves all three in a sequence designed to improve skin quality (this is an approximation of the schedule, individual needs may vary):

  • Week 1: Botox
  • Week 3: Sculptra
  • Week6: Thermage
  • Week 9: Sculptra
  • Week 15: Sculptra

Patients following this plan see thicker neck skin with less wrinkling and no nodules.  They also report high levels of satisfaction with their treatment and their results.

Dr. Abadir offers additional advice to her patients seeking to keep their skin healthy and maintain their treatment results.  “Anything you do – no matter what you do – a good skincare regimen should always include a retinoid, a c-serum, a growth peptide, and a zinc-based sunscreen.”
