Botox & Dysport

Neurotoxins are among today’s most prevalent non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Two popular options are Dysport® and BOTOX® Cosmetic. People in Westport and Fairfield, CT, and across the country trust these non-surgical injections to eliminate lines and wrinkles across the forehead, around the eyes, near the mouth, and between the eyebrows.

What are the benefits?

MedTeam PRO, can use Dysport and BOTOX to soften your look and add subtle contours to your face. With a keen knowledge of facial anatomy, Ellen balances facial asymmetry as well as brow position, to create a non-surgical eyebrow lift. The treatment is remarkably quick, simple and comfortable, and you’ll see dramatic results after just a few days. The effects of neurotoxins can be enhanced by other cosmetic treatments such as facial cosmetic surgery, injectable fillers or a chemical peel.

How does it work?

BOTOX and Dysport are made from a purified and diluted protein. When one of these products is injected into specific muscles in tiny amounts, it relaxes facial muscles and allows the overlying skin to smooth out. Neurotoxins are ideal for treating “dynamic wrinkles” related to both expression and repetitive movements, such as raising your eyebrows or furrowing your brow.

How much BOTOX or Dysport will I need?

It’s completely personalized to best achieve your aesthetic goals. As an experienced and skilled plastic surgeon, Ellen will refine your treatment to ensure that the outcome is neither overly obvious nor diminishes your ability to express yourself and communicate.

Botox-LITE is ideal for 1st timers who are:
  • 1. Fearful of the treatment
  • 2. Worry about looking unnatural
  • 3. Concerned of being too young or too old
  • 4. Want to work within a budget

If you’re new to Ageing and Cosmetic Treatments, Botox-LITE is the perfect solution!

Kybella

Aging and weight gain can leave some people with unsightly fat under the chin that creates the appearance of a double chin. This submental fat can cause a person to be insecure, especially when it comes to taking photos or making public appearances. Many find this excess chin fat is unresponsive to diet and exercise and think their only option is surgery. However, an individual can steer away from surgery and attain their goals by taking advantage of Kybella. This prescription medicine is injected below the chin to break down and absorb dietary fat. Because Kybella is a minimally invasive treatment for moderate to severe under-chin fat, it has become quite popular since its approval and introduction in early 2015.

Kybella Injections: How They Work

Kybella is the first injectable treatment that has been approved by the FDA to treat fat deposits under the chin, in the submental area. Most patients will require two to four sessions, depending on the size of the area and amount of fat. During each visit, we first cleanse your chin and neck area. A topical anesthetic can be applied if you desire. Then we make a series of very small injections of Kybella below your chin.

When Will I Be Able To See Results, And How Long Do They Last?

Typically, most people see visible improvements in the submental region after two to four sessions. The sessions are typically scheduled four to six weeks apart. You may be scheduled for as many as six sessions to help you reduce fat in the chin area. Once the desired aesthetic outcome from Kybella treatment has been achieved, the need for Kybella re-treatment is not expected, as Kybella causes the lasting destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.

Skincare Products

The growth in popularity of less invasive treatments, such as Botox, Juvéderm, and injectable fillers, has lead to the development of more effective, scientific skincare. The growth in popularity of anti-aging treatments among patients has lead us to another option to our cosmetic treatments. Many times, shopping for skincare can be overwhelming. One article tells you to use one product, while another tells you not to. Products mentioned in magazines or online have strong ingredients in them. Ingredients that can be very beneficial if combined properly into a regimen.

Injectable Fillers

Injectable fillers are used to help restore volume in the skin. With age, your skin loses collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid by producing these substances at slower rates. Many dermal fillers feature natural ingredients to replenish the skin’s supply and restore a youthful look. Injectable fillers have also been used to correct acne scars, make thin lips fuller, and make the areas under the eyes less dark or puffy. Injectable fillers containing hyaluronic acid are injected into the thick part of the skin, called the dermis. This places the filler in a tight compartment and attracts water, making the skin fuller and more rigid. Think of the filler like the rebars that are added to concrete to maintain its strength and shape. Injectable fillers provide the skin with little beams of support to add firmness.

Types Of Injectable Fillers

Restylane

Restylane and Juvéderm are safe and natural cosmetic dermal fillers that restore fullness and volume to the skin. The most commonly filled areas include the frown line, hollows of the eyes, lips, and nasolabial folds. Both Restylane and Juvéderm are composed of hyaluronic acid which is found naturally in the human body. You can expect results to last anywhere from 6-12 months. There may be mild swelling and bruising at the injection sites but makeup may be applied 4 hours after treatment.

What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm XC

Juvéderm XC happens to be the first and only non-surgical hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA-approved to instantly smooth moderate to severe wrinkles around your mouth and nose for up to one year with optimal treatment.

Juvéderm XC Treatment Areas
  • Smile Lines
  • Vertical Lip Lines
  • Corner Lines
  • Marionette Lines
Juvéderm Voluma XC

It is not just about lines and wrinkles as you age. Your cheeks can lose volume and skin may begin to sag. Juvéderm Voluma XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. It can provide you contour and a subtle lift for up to two years with optimal treatment.

Weight Management

If you have had a hard time losing weight, you have likely tried other programs with little or no success. We understand how frustrating and disappointing the process can be. There are many different reasons why people want to lose weight. One reason could be that you want to feel better and look better, or maybe you want to improve your overall health or weight-related conditions and reduce your risk of illness. There is no faster or safer way to lose weight than under the supervision and guidance of a physician and a team of weight loss professionals.

Losing Weight Can Help:
  • Lower your blood pressure
  • Take stress off your joints, especially hips and knees
  • Lower your risk of obesity-related cancers
  • Improve the health and function of your organs, such as your liver
  • Help relieve weight-related illnesses such as polycystic ovary syndrome

Your Weight Loss Results

Every person will see a different journey toward their weight-loss goals. Some take time to get started, while others may lose weight quickly at first, then slow down. What is important is maintaining good habits over time for a weight loss that can be maintained. Healthy weight loss is about 1 to 2 pounds per week, but your nutrition counselor will help you find the right weight loss management program for you and help you adjust your plan over time to achieve best your results.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

The Anti-Aging Breakthrough

  • PRP Facial
  • The Vampire Facelift®
  • The “O” Shot
  • PRP Hair Restoration
  • Vampire Breast Lift®
  • Vampire Wing Lift®
  • The “P” Shot®

The Science

Unlike tissue engineering, platelets hold more immediate potential including augmentation and optimization of existing tissue; affordability and are minimally invasive. In addition, because it uses the patient’s own blood, it is customized to the patient’s personal DNA and will prompt no allergic reactions.

Since the 1990’s the most popular PRP application has been in orthopedics where it has been used for tendon injuries, cartilage healing and as a supportive measure in bone healing. More recently, the clinical success seen in the orthopedic area has stimulated enthusiasm in the plastic surgery industry where there has always been a keen interest in promoting cell renewal and tissue growth, particularly in the face.

Ten growth factors found in platelets

  • Platelet-derived growth factor chemotactic for fibroblasts, macroph debride tissue, promotes HA, fibronectin, collagen
  • Transforming growth factor beta synthesis, preservation ECM
  • Fibroblast growth factor angiogenesis, fibroblasts, repair and growth
  • Insulin-like growth factor 1 cell growth and multiplication
  • Insulin-like growth factor 2
  • Vascular endothelial growth factor vessel permeability, ECM, chemotactic
  • Epidermal growth factor mitosis endothelial cells
  • Interleukin 8 inflammation and wound healing
  • Keratinocyte growth factor stimulate thickening of barrier layer to skin
  • Connective tissue growth factor contributes to the maintenance of normal cell and connective tissue function. It is also important for tissue repair
  • Plasma is the straw colored liquid that is a part of our blood
  • Platelets are a cell type within blood that is critical to wound healing and clot formation (stopping bleeding
  • Biologic product is a product extracted or synthesized from biologic sources

PRP Therapy for Facial Aging

The facial aging process has been studied for years and there is agreement on all fronts that the changes in skin quality, thickness and texture represent the biggest challenge to the profession. Although we can lift and remove skin or heat it and cool it, we have yet to find a way to affect its inherent quality. The discovery of PRP has provided new pathways and early answers to this biggest obstacle.

We are so impressed with the results we’ve seen with the PRP procedure that I have started to offer it in my practice. We now offer a PRP facial series that, combined with supportive topical products like Retrinex and our exclusive FACTORFIVE serum, will help to diminish fine lines and stimulate the rejuvenation of your skin from the inside to add to overall skin integrity, thickness, hydration and tightness.

In addition, we offer PRP for two other exciting new areas: for hair regrowth in male and female pattern baldness and the “O” shot, which helps increase blood flow to the vaginal area to improve sex drive, increase orgasms, and combat painful intercourse.

PRP Facial

We’re excited to start offering one of the latest innovations in skin rejuvenation, Platelet Rich Plasma facials, in our Westport, CT offices. The PRP facial uses your own plasma to “wake up” the stem cells deep within the dermis, stimulating them to produce more collagen, repair the elastin fibers and increase blood flow. All of these actions make the skin appear more youthful.



One of the unique and exciting aspects of this treatment is that patients notice continued improvement in their skin for several months after receiving the treatment. That’s due to the fact that their own cells are producing more collagen and growing new cells! It really lasts and can continue to have positive effects on the skin as long as 18 months to two years. It’s one of the most natural ways to combat aging — in fact, the FDA has no regulations on PRP because it simply uses components from the patient’s own body.

We combine PRP with micro penning to ensure the platelet-rich plasma is infused deep into your skin tissues for maximum effect.

PRP Hair Restoration

Hair loss is often thought of as a problem that mostly happens to older men but in reality it’s a problem that both men and women face and not just when they’re older. According to the Mayo Clinic, hair loss can result from a number of different factors including stress, hormonal imbalance, medications and genetics. Whatever the reason, the condition is troubling for both sexes and there have been few advancements beyond topical solutions like Rogaine and hair transplant surgery.

One of the more recent and promising methods to address hair loss in men and women is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) hair restoration, a non-surgical and completely natural approach that uses the patient’s own blood platelets to stimulate hair regrowth.

The in-office procedure is very simple: the patient’s blood is drawn and then processed in a centrifuge to extract all of red blood cells, leaving only the platelet-rich serum. This solution is then injected into the patient’s scalp after a numbing cream has been applied. Because the serum is rich in many different growth factors, it stimulates the hair follicles to grow. Schedule an in-office consultation today to see if this exciting new procedure is right for you.

O-Shot

The O-shot has been seen on the cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine, the O-Shot has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey show, and on The Doctors. The O-shot was even part of the ultra-exclusive celebrity "goodie-bags," given out at the 2014 and 2015 Academy Awards.

What is the O-Shot Exactly?

The "O" in the O-shot stands for "orgasm" shot. The orgasm shot improves your ability to achieve a more satisfying orgasm. The O-shot is also described as a "vaginal rejuvenation," technique, because it returns the vagina to a more youthful look and feel.

The revolutionary O-shot does all of this by using your body's own natural healing ability to improve, lubrication, arousal, and increase libido. The O-shot uses the medically proven technique of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy. PRP involves separating the healing or "growth factors" in your blood from the blood cells, and then re-injecting that super-charged plasma back into your body.

P-Shot

It is perfectly normal for your sex drive to decline slowly from its peak in your teens and twenties. Also, many factors other than age, from diet to stress, to sleep -- all can affect your sex drive or libido. Plus, it's hard to define exactly what a "low sex drive" is, because what one man considers "low" could be "normal" for another.

Of course, testosterone isn't the only factor driving your desire to sex and ability to perform. But if your testosterone level is low, it can significantly impact your sex life. The manufacturing plant for testosterone is the testes.

As with any machine, as time goes on, the mechanism becomes less and less efficient. By the time you reach your 40s, testosterone levels start to fall by about 1% a year. For some men, the decrease in production has little effect. But for many men, as you hit your 50s, 60s and older, you may actually start to feel that drop off.

Symptoms of Low Testosterone Include:

  • Reduction of libido or sex drive,
  • A feeling of reduced virility or vitality,
  • Changes in mood,
  • Erectile dysfunction,
  • Decreased energy,
  • Reduced muscle and bone mass,
  • Memory issues.

According to the July 2013 edition of "The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism," testosterone therapy has shown to dramatically increase sex drive, improve sexual performance, have positive effects on mood, boost memory, and increase strength.

P-Shot - Regain Your Virility

We offer men of all ages a range of testosterone treatment options for improved libido. While there is an accepted "normal" range for testosterone levels, what is low for one man, may be "normal" for another. That is why any treatment plan we develop starts with your individual evaluation.

Then, following diagnostic testing and discussions with our physicians, we will develop a testosterone therapy plan designed to increase your libido and sexual performance tailored to your particular needs and lifestyle.

Vampire Shot

The Vampire Facelift is a unique therapy that involves the use of one’s own injectable blood-derived platelet growth factors, as well as either hyaluronic acid (HA) filler or calcium The goal of the procedure is to restore facial beauty and youthfulness. The Vampire Facelift procedure necessarily consists of an evaluation of the patient, the drawing and centrifugation of the patient’s blood, and the injection of an HA filler or the calcium chloride activated, patient-derived platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM).

The Vampire Facial is an option for patients that have not experienced extensive facial volume loss. It is essentially a re-surfacing of the exterior layer of the face. The Vampire Facial involves micro needling of the facial dermis and the application of Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix to the face. The process of micro needling creates tiny punctures. When the PRFM is applied to the face it absorbed through the punctures and into the skin.


THE PROCEDURE IN 8 SIMPLE STEPS

  • The novel Vampire Facelift procedure, patented by Charles Runels, MD, consists of 8 simple steps that are described below:
  • 1. An evaluation of the patient to develop a strategy that best suits his or her facial structure.
  • 2. The application of numbing cream to increase comfort.
  • 3. A phlebotomy that involves the drawing of one to two tablespoons of a patient’s own blood.
  • 4. Centrifugation i.e. spinning of the blood.
  • 5. Extraction of platelets from the centrifuged tube and activation with calcium chloride to release platelet-rich growth factors.
  • 6. Injection of an HA filler or calcium into the platelet rich plasma to be used to sculpt according to the patient’s unique facial structure.
  • 7. Injection of platelet rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) into the patient’s face.
  • 8. Micro needling of the face and application of (PRFM) to the surface and subcutaneous area.

Vampire Wing Lift

The Vampire Wing Lift® is yet another procedure we offer in MedTeam Pro office that utilizes Platelet Rich Plasma to enhance the fullness of women’s anatomy, specifically the labia majora, to lift and restore lost fullness to the area, addressing discomfort and enhancing physical appearance. Unfortunately, this area of women’s bodies ages just like any other area – and is greatly impacted by events such a major weight loss or vaginal childbirth, causing loose, deflated skin and decreasing sensitivity (in an area we’d all like to continue feeling young!).

This in-office procedure is performed virtually painlessly, using strong numbing cream and a lidocaine injection to ensure patients are very comfortable. As with all PRP procedures, blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to separate the growth factors. The potent growth factors are then injected into the labia majora where they activate new blood vessels, collagen and tissue growth in the deep layers of the tissue over the next 1-2 months. The effects of the procedure (moist, fuller, more robust, youthful tissue) can last for two years or more!

It’s great to pair this procedure with the “O” Shot® which injects PRP into the clitoris and inside the vagina to encourage cell renewal and increase sensitivity to stimulation and sexual satisfaction.

Vampire Breastlift

While it may sound like something out of a horror movie, the Vampire Breast Lift® is far from it. It’s actually a unique and innovative way to add volume and a more youthful, plump look to your cleavage that doesn’t involve surgery, implants or even… fangs or a menacing Transylvanian!

If you suffer from “droopy” cleavage, diminished curves/fullness, wrinkly chest/cleavage skin, inverted nipples or decreased sensation in your breasts from aging, the Vampire Breast Lift® is made for you.

In this quick, in-office procedure, blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to separate the growth factors from the blood. The potent growth factors are then injected into the breast and chest area where they activate new blood vessels, collagen and tissue growth in the deep layers of skin and soft tissue over the next 1-2 months. The effects of the procedure (younger, softer skin and thicker more voluminous tissue) can last for 2 years and more!

Dr. Ellen Mahony is one of the board-certified plastic surgeons in the Fairfield County area that is certified to perform this unique procedure that uses a patient’s Platelet Rich Plasma to release important growth factors deep into your skin and soft tissues, encouraging blood flow, collagen and elastin production and a more vibrant, youthful look to the cleavage and breast tissue.

If you want a dramatic change to your breast size or to correct breast sagging, you might want to consider a breast augmentation or breast lift. The Vampire Breast Lift® is a great non-surgical addition to these procedures offering volume to the cleavage area especially and creating deeply-healthy soft, smooth skin tissue.
