When asked if dermal fillers or a facelift are cheaper, you may think the answer is obvious. But when you think about both options over the long term, the picture changes quite a bit. Don’t get us wrong—we love fillers, and our patients do too. These injectable treatments have completely changed the way I and many other physicians all over the world approach treating the signs of aging. But if you’re looking for a long-term solution for the most common signs of aging, you might be better served by a surgical facelift here in Idaho Falls. Let’s find out why? When … Continue reading

Have you heard of miraDry? Here in Idaho Falls, it’s one of our favorite options for reducing excessive sweating, but it’s a bit overlooked here at my practice. And although treating your excessive sweating might not be at the forefront of your mind in the winter months, it’s actually a great time to undergo the procedure if you want to feel dry and confident once the warmer months come around. Sweating is a normal function of the human body, and an important one too. Sweat doesn’t just stain your clothes and make your palms moist. It also acts as a … Continue reading

Our faces show signs of aging in different ways. Some people start to see wrinkles around the eyes, others around the mouth. Everyone has different levels of skin damage due to sun exposure, genetics, and other factors. There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for achieving youthful skin, which is something we keep in mind when creating a plan of action for each patient. Our Idaho plastic surgery center offers a range of dermal fillers to allow us to generate a customized treatment plan to fit your specific needs. Although most fillers are similarly composed, certain patients may respond better to one … Continue reading
BOTOX is a versatile and popular treatment that men and women in Jackson, WY, and all over the world are using to regain a youthful complexion. It is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries and is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments. BOTOX targets the underlying cause of wrinkles—repeated muscle contractions from facial expressions. Here are some interesting facts about BOTOX: Even if you follow an excellent skincare regimen, a lifetime of smiling, squinting, frowning, and making other expressions can result in dynamic wrinkles. These are the facial lines, especially in the forehead and around the … Continue reading
If you’ve spent any time researching laser skin resurfacing at day spas in Idaho (or perhaps our own med spa), you’ve probably come across unfamiliar words. You’re likely to run into two in particular, over and over again: “ablative” and “non-ablative.” Let’s talk about what these terms mean for your skin. Ablative lasers are the more invasive of the 2 options. Their powerful energy actually clears away the outermost layers of the skin, revealing new, clear skin beneath while it stimulates your skin’s own natural healing response. This one-two punch of power can yield big results, and these sorts of … Continue reading
As a plastic surgeon, I realize that dermal fillers and other procedures at our med spa here in Pocatello have a reputation as being just for women. But the truth is, men have just as much use for these products, and their popularity among this population is steadily rising. Still, like all plastic surgery procedures and medical spa treatments, fillers achieve different things for men and women, because they approach the treatment session with different goals. Women typically use fillers to achieve delicate, feminine facial contours as well as smoother, less visible wrinkles. Common treatment areas for women include the … Continue reading
BOTOX® Cosmetic is clearly the most popular aesthetic treatment in the world, yet we still hear from patients who are hesitant to get BOTOX injections at our Idaho Falls practice. Some are afraid the injections will be painful or uncomfortable. Others worry about getting results that will make them look “frozen” or unnatural. Those concerns often stem from hearing stories about someone who went to an unqualified injector. At our practice, expert injector Nancy Olson completes BOTOX treatments quickly with virtually no discomfort, and gets natural-looking results that meet and exceed her patients’ expectations. Earlier this year, we even … Continue reading
