Castle Dermatology Institute is now offering Volbella for lip enhancements. The FDA has recently approved Juvederm Volbella for lip augmentation and the treatment of perioral lines. Several clinical trials have demonstrated its ability to soften the appearance of perioral lines and boost lip volume in those over the age of twenty-one. Lips can lose volume over time. Fine lines often appear around the lips, especially in smokers or those who wax frequently. The lines and lost volume can be quite aging, but Volbella lip enhancement can turn back the hands of time, creating a perfect pout with silky smooth skin. Dr. Ghasri can use Volbella in both men and women over the age of twenty-one who want a rejuvenated appearance or fuller, softer-looking lips. Volbella is created using a special proprietary filler that yields incredibly smooth, long-lasting results. Because the results are subtle, it can be used in this delicate area without the risk of overfilling, and patients can enjoy the results for twelve to eighteen months, making it an excellent investment. Volbella can be administered right in the dermatologist’s office, and the results are immediately evident. Lidocaine is added to the formula to ensure greater comfort. Side effects can include mild tenderness, swelling, and redness, but these are usually temporary and self-limiting. Dr. Ghasri offers a variety of cosmetic and medical treatments, including Botox, Dysport, Restylane, Juvederm, and treatments for eczema, rosacea, dermatitis, acne, and skin cancer.

Facial skin often shows the earliest signs of aging. It is almost constantly exposed to the elements, and facial expressions put a great deal of stress on both the skin and its underlying structures. Collagen and elastin, which are essential proteins that keep skin looking youthful, begin to decline in midlife, causing skin to sag, thin, and wrinkle. Fortunately, Castle Dermatology Institute is now offering comprehensive skin rejuvenation procedures. Skin rejuvenation procedures are designed to restore lost volume, even skin tone, and create a more youthful appearance. Dr. Peyman Ghasri along with his colleague Dr. Pedram Ghasri can completely customize skin rejuvenation regimens to meet individual patient needs. Some of the procedures available through Castle Dermatology Institute include: “Dr. Ghasri is known for his kind demeanor and personal commitment to all of his patients, and looks forward to addressing all of your comprehensive dermatology needs,” his team says.

Castle Dermatology Institute is now offering Restylane Silk and Restylane Lyft. These two hyaluronic acid-based injectable treatments are designed to rejuvenate and revitalize aging skin. Castle Dermatology Institute customizes skin care treatments to provide patients with the most personalized care possible. Dr. Ghasri also offers a variety of medical dermatology treatments for eczema, rosacea, acne, warts, skin cancer, and other common skin problems. Youthful lips tend to be full and plump with a well-defined shape and few visible lines. With time, lips begin to show the same signs of aging as other parts of the face. They lose volume, become thinner, and their shape can become less defined with wrinkling or vertical lines surrounding them. Restylane Silk offers patients smooth, natural-looking volume in the lips. Restylane Silk is made with smaller particles of hyaluronic acid, which creates the smooth, silky look patients want. It is the first FDA-approved product to augment and smooth lips in patients who are aged 21 and older. Restylane Lyft is another injectable hyaluronic acid filler, but is designed specifically for use in the cheeks and midface. It can be used to augment the cheeks or restore lost volume in these areas. It can also be used to treat nasolabial folds or other severe facial wrinkles. These types of wrinkles and contour changes are a natural consequence of the fat loss that occurs over time, but Restylane Lyft can restore a fuller, more youthful look without surgery. Dr. Peyman Ghasri, a graduate of UC Irvine and UCLA, is a top dermatologist who has been trained in both general and plastic surgery. He is widely published and a sought-after lecturer. He is currently a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, a diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology, a member of the American Society of Mohs Surgery, and a fellow of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery. His partner, Dr. Pedram Ghasri, is also a Regents Scholar and graduate of UCLA and UC Irvine.

Background Laser hair removal is a safe and effective procedure for the treatment of unwanted body hair but is not exempt from side effects. A rare but significant adverse effect with this treatment modality is paradoxical hypertrichosis. Objective To evaluate the potential etiologies, risk factors, related laser types, and treatment options for the development of excess hair after laser therapy. Materials and methods An analysis of previously published case studies and review articles along with our own experience was used to gather information regarding this phenomenon. Results Paradoxical hypertrichosis has a low incidence, ranging from 0.6% to 10%, and most commonly occurs on the face and neck. All laser and light sources have the potential to cause hair induction, especially in individuals with darker skin types (III-VI); with dark, thick hair; and with underlying hormonal conditions. Possible causes include the effect of inflammatory mediators and subtherapeutic thermal injury causing induction of the hair cycle. Treatment for paradoxical hypertrichosis is laser therapy of the affected area. Conclusions Paradoxical hypertrichosis is a rare side effect of laser hair removal; the pathogenesis of this event remains widely unknown. We recommend further large-scale studies to investigate this effect. The authors have indicated no significant interest with commercial supporters. © 2010 by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, Inc.

A variety of non-invasive techniques have been utilized for the enhancement of cutaneous changes seen with photoaging. Such methods include chemical peels, microdermabrasion, ablative and nonablative lasers, and various rejuvenating light sources. However, the most widely used minimally invasive cosmetic procedures for the correction of undesired rhytides and enhance facial features through contouring and volumization are injections with botulinum toxin and soft tissue fillers. Their extensive long term safety and relative ease of procedural techniques have led to high satisfaction levels worldwide. Nonetheless, proper training of the fundamentals in injection technique, the choice of the appropriate candidate, and knowledge of potential adverse events are imperative to ensure an excellent and safe outcome.
