LaseMD Q and A

LaseMD has been the most popular laser treatment in Renew Aesthetic Clinic for the last two years. It continues to show its incredible range of capabilities. It pleases everyone from light skin color to darker skin patients. It works to better the skin skin tone by removing brown spots and redness background in the skin. It brightens and refines the skin to make it glow. The most difficult brown patches of melasma takes a few more treatments to reduce, but reduce LaseMD will.  If you wish to learn more about LaseMD laser and its clinical indications, efficacy, downtime, etc, please visit our website or book a consultation.

Sculptra (PLLA): the classic bio-stimulatory dermal filler

Sculptra (PLLA) stands for Poly-L-Lactic Acid) has been around for many years. I initially injected for volumizing patients who suffered from active HIV AIDs who were on antiviral cocktail in 2007. These patient suffered severe facial lipodystrophy. Sculptra is not an easy agent to inject or manage. First of all, it is expensive, then one must diluted 48-72 hours ahead prior to injection so Sculptra could properly be reconstituted into a suspension. When injecting Sculptra, needle clogging can happen despite the best effort of properly mixing Sculptra.

Yet Sculptra is unique in so many ways. In the state of Oregon, as far as I am aware, only physicians and nurse practitioners have the license to purchase and inject Sculptra. In contrast, HA fillers are injected by LPNs, RNs, nurse practitioners, and physicians.  Sculptra is injected for its natural looking results and long lasting results. When it is done well and properly, it is also the most desirable injectable agent for skin tightening for neck, decollete, buttocks, and thighs.  At Renew, we combine Cellfina the cellulite dimpling release device and Sculptra injection to give our patients the best results for Cellulite reduction and skin tightening in the same area.

How about Radiesse?

For patients who are thin, long-distance runners or cyclists, and all athletes. The HA dermal fillers offer immediate and great results, however, HA fillers do not seem to last long for this very active group. Their facial volume loss is quicker due to the intense training and high metalism state of their bodies.  Radiesse is calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. We, at Renew, place Radiesse both deeply to contour and replace volume loss as well as place superfacialy with hyper-diluted Radiesse for skin tightening due to its collagen neogenesis activities. This results both volumizing and skin tightening effects with longer lasting results for the very active and athletic group. It’s not surprising to us that Radiesse is a men’s favorite filler at our clinic.  Radiesse is also a favorite dermal filler at Renew for neck and decollete, buttock, upper thighs, and above the knee skin laxity (skin creepiness) correction. Call 971-470-3186 to book a consult with Yvonne Yan Duan, FNP for Radiesse.

Renew Aesthetic Clinic Completed Lip Casting Model #2

 

Lip Casting Call Model #2: Renew Aesthetic Clinic completed our lip casting model #2 Injection yesterday with another STUNNING IMMEDIATE BEFORE & AFTER photo (1 syringe Juvederm Ultra XC). Again our lovely model is Filler naive, yet she did awesome during the procedure and her results speak for itself. Our injector Yvonne Yan Duan, FNP is at the top of her performance, not only for artistic talent (symmetry, shape, and natural), technical skills (no lumps, swelling, or bruises), and also for consistency-the result is as good as Lip Casting Call Model #1’s result. And she does this five days a week for every patient, now that is consistency difficult to find!

Yvonne Yan Duan Advancing Her Injecting Skills by Attending a Master Class

Yvonne Yan Duan, FNP with Arthur Swift M.D. and Swift Beauty Master Injection Class in LA in May of 2019 in a red top in 2nd row on the right 2nd with her signature braided hair style. She enjoyed learning many new injection techniques, particularly the lower face lift or “Swift Lift” which is been used everyday in Renew Aesthetic Clinic nowadays.  The Master Injector Class attracted many international attendees, altogether more 60 injectors attended this class.

After 12 years of uninterrupted career in injecting Botox and dermal fillers, Yvonne Yan Duan is as committed to advancing her injecting skills as she started in 2007, she has already set her eyes on the next challenge and advanced injection technique. If you are interested to learn about our new injection techniques with dermal fillers, please call 971-470-3196 or visit www.renewaestheticclinic.com. We often offer Lunch and Learn opportunities where we reveal new techniques and technologies offered in our clinic.

Replacement Fillers can Lift and Contour to achieve Natural and Beautiful Results

Dermal Fillers can lift and contour to achieve natural and beautiful results as illustrated in these BEFORE and AFTER photos.  To a well trained aesthetic medical professional, it is obvious where and how much dermal fillers should be placed, provided one has “the eye” and “the artistic talent” beyond the basic medical training that is required to perform a safe filler procedure.

To most of our patients, the process is as important as the outcome. Patients nowadays prefer no bruises, no pain, above all results that are easily discernible, natural, yet beautiful.  As the famed plastic surgeon Arthur Swift M.D. often been quoted saying to his students in his Master Injector Class: “If you bruise them, you will lose them!” “If you pain them, you will not retain them!” “If you make them look weird,  you shall be feared!”

It is not difficult to see why smart patients shop for their injectors instead of shopping for fillers. These patients understand that only the best injectors can achieve the best look!
