Welcome to my blog!

Welcome to my blog! My goal here is to get more personal – and simply share stuff with my friends, family, and patients!  You can expect some posts on the latest advances in cosmetic surgery (although it seems like there’ll be a fair amount of music-related posts – they’re too much fun to make!) I also expect that we’ll have more contests and free stuff, special events and even very special guests!

Eyelid Surgery for Eye Bags – Medical Minute

Lower eyelid surgery could help you say "good-bye" to bags! Losing your bags can be infuriating when you're at the airport, but when they're hanging beneath your eyes, it can be a welcome change!  One of the concerns I often hear about is dark circles or bags beneath the eyelids that don't seem to go away, even with a good night's sleep. These types of dark circles are not caused by a darkening of the skin; rather they are caused by shadows.  This is the result of light shining (usually from above) and hitting the bulge caused by some excess fat producing a shadow beneath the bag.  So we simply need to reduce the bag by removing some fat (without a skin incision) - and the dark shadow goes away! Watch the video above to learn more about under eye bags, dark circles, and how surgery may be the solution to getting rid of that tired look!
Dr Weiss explaining how a skin rejuvenation laser works

How Does a Skin Rejuvenation Laser Work?

There's a famous law from famed science-fiction author Arthur C. Clarke along the lines of "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."  I think that law describes lasers quite well!  What else would you call a machine that shoots light at your skin in order to remove wrinkles and brown spots? I'd like to take you on a behind-the-scenes look at the "magic" behind the laser I use for skin rejuvenation. Hopefully you too will appreciate the cool science and technology operating in the background!

Younger-looking skin with 30 minute laser treatments!

We’re pretty sure you heard us talk about the benefits of laser skin rejuvenation.  It’s great for restoring that youthful look to your skin; it can erase wrinkles and stimulate collagen production to give your skin a smoother, more supple appearance. But sometimes, it can be challenging to find the time to devote to a full-face procedure.  The “lunchtime laser” series of treatments might be your answer!  Now instead of devoting weeks to healing and recovery, you can achieve comparable results with much less downtime! The “lunchtime laser” treatments are a series of approximately 5 treatments that can be performed in around thirty minutes.  After the treatment you’re free to resume basically normal activities (though staying out of the sun is highly encouraged). But don’t take our word for it! Listen to our patient Andrea give a glowing testimony about the procedure and her results! 🙂
