20 Mar Dr. Sieveking Talks Nose Surgery – Rhinoplasty, in Lifeandstylemag.com

Nashville, Tennessee, plastic surgeon Dr. Nicholas Sieveking — who also doesn’t call the actress a patient — agrees, saying the “surgery has left her nasal tip and nostrils uneven and the dorsum [nasal ridge] a bit crooked.”

NOSE – While Debra has never looked anything short of gorgeous, “An apparent rhinoplasty has given her nose an ‘operated on’ look,” observes plastic surgeon Dr. Nicholas Sieveking.

JAWLINE – “It looks as if she’s had fillers in the prejowl area [on either side of the chin] that made her jaw appear more square,” says Nashville’s Dr. Sieveking.

20 Feb Eat Your Way To Healthy Skin: How To Diet For Clear Skin Without Blemishes

How To Diet For Clear Skin Without Acne

It’s easy to overlook our gut as the source of skin troubles. But if the well-being of our internal organs and energy levels are determined by what we put in our mouths, why shouldn’t the same be true for our skin?

Our friend and Stanford-trained, board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Nicholas Sieveking, agrees. An unhealthy gut can often trigger the signs of aging and unhealthy skin that we all look to avoid. “Any disruption can create inflammation, affecting the integrity and protective function of the skin,” Dr. Sieveking explained.

Did you know an unhealthy gut can lead to a drop in the power of the skin to fight infection and inflammation? Research shows that small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), a condition involving inappropriate growth of bacteria in the small intestine, is ten times more prevalent in people with acne rosacea, and that a correction of gut flora led to marked clinical improvement in their skin conditions.

Dr. Sieveking explained the impact of gut flora in our bodies. The expert shared that altered gut flora can activate the release of substance P — a neuropeptide produced in the gut, brain and skin that plays a major role in inflammatory skin conditions like eczema.

An unhealthy gut can result in many issues such as maldigestion and the malabsorption of proteins, fats, carbs and vitamins, but these problems also show up in our skin. “SIBO can lead to nutritional deficiencies including vitamin B12, as well as vitamins A, D, E and K, which are all critical for optimal skin health and overall good health. An imbalance of stomach acid can result in the overgrowth of ‘bad’ bacteria in the colon, which can lead to acne as well,” the expert noted.

But thankfully, correcting your gut flora and establishing a healthy glow, both on the inside and out, doesn’t need to be complicated. Check back this week to learn the five easy steps you can take to start the healing process.

20 Jan New Year’s Skin Care Countdown – Fashion Times Part 2

New Treatments To Trim Fat & Rejuvenate Skin For 2016

Who can blame anyone for getting out of their gym routine and into a complete holiday rut? We feast so much during this time of year that fitness can quickly get put on the back-burner. But that glittery party dress for New Year’s has to fit and we have to look fresh-faced, no matter what!

So if you’re in the market for a New Year’s cheat-sheet to slim down and freshen up, consider these cosmetic treatment crib notes, courtesy of Dr. Nicholas Sieveking, a board certified plastic surgeon and director of Ageless Solutions in Nashville, Tennessee.

2 Weeks Before New Year’s – Skin Tightening & Fat Reduction

In the market to spruce up the area around the eyes, neck, jowls, abdomen, upper arms, thighs or love handles? Who isn’t? But if you’re looking for a quick fix, Dr. Sieveking suggests Exilis Elite. This is a new treatment for skin tightening and fat reduction. This FDA-approved treatment is an alternative to liposuction and plastic surgery to achieve smoother, tighter skin, or contouring in certain areas.

This is the latest technology in skin tightening and fat reduction. How does it work? “Collagen production is stimulated and as the area cools, it results in the tightening of the skin,” the physician described. “Patients equate the heat felt during an Exilis treatment to the heat similar to a hot stone massage,” he said. Dr. Sieveking recommends approximately 6 treatments per area. Each session can take 1-2 hours, depending on the size of the area to be treated.

1 Week Before New Year’s – Hydrafacial

What better way to get 2016 ready than by rejuvenating your skin? The HydraFacial is new aesthetic technology. Dr. Sieveking says this isn’t your at-home facial. “This ability to moisturize the skin separates this option from all other skin resurfacing procedures. The HydraFacial treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing solutions,” he explained. The treatment is immediately effective and has little to no downtime.

06 Jan New Year’s Skin Care Countdown – Fashion Times

Expert Shares New Treatments To Trim Fat & Rejuvenate Skin For 2016

New Year’s Eve is one month away, a fact that can send shivers down a girl’s spine if one is not Instagram ready and that little black dress isn’t quite zipping! With the clock ticking down, how can we get “no filter” ready and slimmer in one month without a strict diet, exercise or surgery? There’s just no time!

We tapped Dr. Nicholas Sieveking, a board certified plastic surgeon and director of Ageless Solutions in Nashville, Tennessee with this exact question. Check out his New Year’s rejuvenation treatment tips for those who are opting for a little beauty pick-me-up to get their New Year’s resolutions started.

One month before New Year’s

LipoLean

Ever heard of these injections? They aren’t Botox! This is a combination of vitamins and amino acids that help the body metabolize fat, detoxify and cleanse the body as well as protect it from free radicals that cause premature aging. “Leucine is an essential amino acid which cannot be produced naturally in the bod, but must be obtained from a dietary source or a supplement,” Dr. Sieveking explained. “Another ingredient, Inositol, helps stabilize blood sugar and prevent food cravings. Consider it as well if you’re looking for a little B12 for energy,” he noted.

Vanquish Fat Removal

If you haven’t had time to hit the gym, fear not. This is a new state of the art, noninvasive fat removal and fat reduction procedure that eliminates unwanted belly fat. “We can vanquish fat reduction using safe RF technology to destroy the fat cells. Vanquish can help you lose 2-4 inches in 4-6 treatments and can eliminate fat without the ‘side effects’ associated with liposuction or gastric bypass,” the doctor explained.

This new procedure does not require anesthesia either, eliminating the risk of infection or the need for recovery time. “The Vanquish procedure takes 30 minutes, so you can return to work immediately without interrupting your lifestyle. I recommend 4 treatments to enjoy the maximum benefits,” the expert suggested..

More on what Dr. Sieveking recommends for the 3-week and 2-week countdown until the ball drops, coming this week!

20 Oct LightPod Neo Laser Effective on Acne and Acne Scars

Laser therapy is an excellent alternative to topical and oral acne treatments.

Available at Sieveking Plastic Surgery in Nashville, Tennessee, The LightPod Neo, long used by physicians to successfully treat acne scars, has been FDA approved for acne treatment. This multi-purpose laser can be used to control acne and reduce the look of redness and scarring.

Acne blemishes and acne scars are common skin conditions that can affect patients of all ages and sexes.

Acne can have a significant effect on one’s physical appearance and mental well-being. While there are a multitude of treatment options available on the market, each offers its own advantages and disadvantages. Depending on the severity of the acne, some treatments may prove more successful or suitable than others. In cases where topical creams are irritating or ineffective, and oral medications are not a suitable or desirable option, laser therapy is a promising alternative.

The LightPod Neo is an FDA approved laser that can be used on both acne and acne scars.

The LightPod Neo uses MicroPulse-1064 technology to deliver 15000 watts of power in small, controlled bursts of 0.65 milliseconds that effectively destroy acne bacteria in the sebaceous glands, reaching the deeper layers of the skin. Its patented cooling system helps keeps patients comfortable while reducing the risk of damage or irritation to other areas of the skin. The laser hand piece does not come into contact with the patient’s skin, making it a well-tolerated and hygienic treatment that can be used on even the most sensitive skin.

The LightPod Neo offers dramatic results in the treatment of mild to moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris.

The LightPod Neo can be used to treat acne and scars on the face, and is also ideal for use on larger areas, such as the back and chest. There are fewer side effects associated with the laser than with topical and oral medications, and significant improvement can be seen soon after several treatments. The procedure is non-invasive, and no downtime is required. The laser can also be used to stimulate the production of collagen, thereby further improving the tone and texture of the skin. Blemishes and scars will be reduced, as will any redness or unevenness.

Laser therapy is an innovative and effective treatment choice against acne and acne scars.

The LightPod Neo laser offers both patients and physicians many advantages over other forms of treatment. Patients benefit from clearer skin, reduced redness, and diminished scars, without having to deal with the side effects of oral or topical treatments. With the LightPod Neo, physicians gain a multi-purpose tool that can be used in combination with other therapies to ensure maximum results that can be tailored to meet each patient’s individual needs.

14 Sep PicoWay Laser Tattoo Removal – Nashville TN – Frequently Asked Questions

PicoWay Laser Tattoo Removal FAQ’s.

1. What is the PicoWay Laser System?

Available at Sieveking Plastic Surgery in Nashville, Tennessee, PicoWay is a remarkably innovative dual wavelength picosecond laser from Syneron Candela. PicoWay enables removal of multi-colored tattoos, recalcitrant tattoos and benign pigmented lesions on any skin type. PicoWay’s unique mode of action is based on delivering ultra-short picosecond pulses of energy to the tissue. These bursts of energy create a photo-mechanical impact which breaks up the tattoo ink or pigmentation into smaller, more easily eliminated particles.

2. What are the advantages of PicoWay?

PicoWay is the world’s first and only dual laser device with proprietary PicoWay technology: • Dual wavelengths – 1064 nm & 532 nm wavelengths in one laser system • Treat the widest range of tattoos – 2 wavelengths to treat most tattoo colors & types, including recalcitrant tattoos • Treat dermal and epidermal pigmented lesions – Large spot sizes enable deep penetration when needed • Highest peak power – For effective energy over the broadest range of spot sizes • Shortest picosecond pulses – 40% shorter picosecond pulses mean effective, yet lower energy for less risk of side effects

3. Why is PicoWay the best picosecond laser on the market?

PicoWay’s unique, proprietary mode of action has the highest peak power and shortest pulse duration of any picosecond device on the market for superior efficacy, safety and comfort. PicoWay’s ultrashort pulses enable the strong photoacoustic impact needed to fracture pigment particles using lower fluences, for better clearance in fewer treatments. PicoWay’s novel design architecture enables PicoWay to be robust, reliable and scalable for future application developments.

4. Why is PicoWay better than traditional Q-switched lasers?

Q-Switch technology requires numerous treatment sessions, causes significant discomfort during treatment and, in many cases, incompletely removes tattoos and pigmented lesions. Picosecond technology, has ultra-short pulse durations, 100 times shorter than Q-switch lasers, and in the trillionths of a second. These bursts of energy create a photoacoustic impact which breaks up the tattoo ink or pigmentation into smaller, more easily absorbed particles. PicoWay’s unique, proprietary mode of action has the highest peak power and the shortest pulse duration of any picosecond device on the market for superior efficacy, safety and comfort. PicoWay is the answer physicians are looking for to combat the reluctance patients may have to treat tattoos or more complex pigmented lesions.

5. What are the indications for PicoWay laser treatment?

PicoWay is indicated for the treatment of tattoos and benign cutaneous pigmented lesions. The decision to treat with laser therapy should be based upon appropriate diagnostic evaluation and consideration of all patient factors.

6. What types of pigmented lesions can be treated?

Pigmented lesions that can be treated with PicoWay include, but are not limited to the following: Laser Skin Toning, Solar or Senile Lentigines, Freckles (Ephelides), Café au lait, Nevus of Ota, Beckers Nevus.

7. What types of tattoos can be treated?

Many kinds of tattoos can be treated including professional, amateur, traumatic and even recalcitrant tattoos. Recalcitrant tattoos are tattoos that have been proven to be resistant to nanosecond laser treatment.

8. What are the wavelengths for PicoWay?

With the 532 nm and 1064 nm wavelengths for the system, laser irradiation is selectively absorbed by the targeted pigment with minimal effect on the surrounding tissue. This is accomplished by careful selection of the wavelength that yields maximum absorption by the target and minimum absorption by surrounding skin structures. In addition, the laser pulse duration is controlled to be equal to or shorter than the thermal relaxation time of the target, to minimize heat transfer to surrounding tissues. PicoWay’s dual wavelengths enable removal of multi-colored tattoos, recalcitrant tattoos and benign pigmented lesions on any skin type.

9. Is the treatment safe for all skin types?

Yes, PicoWay treatment is indicated for all skin types. Ideally, the wavelength selected for eradication of the tattoo should be highly absorbed by the tattoo pigment and only minimally absorbed by other chromophores in the skin. Absorption of radiation by most pigments in amateur and professional tattoos is strong in the near-infrared region of the spectrum. By contrast, the surrounding melanin has a very broad absorption band throughout the ultra-violet, visible, and near-infrared regions of the spectrum, with absorption of light greatest in the ultraviolet, and least in the near-infrared. Other chromophores in the skin, such as hemoglobin and oxyhemoglobin, should have little to no absorption of light within the selected wavelength. The 532 nm and 1064 nm wavelengths produced by the PicoWay laser have been carefully selected to utilize the difference in absorption for the treatment of tattoo pigments. Treatment of tattoos can therefore be performed with minimal adverse effects on normal skin structures.

10. What is the effect of the pulse duration on the efficacy of tattoo removal?

To be effective, the laser pulse duration should be shorter than the thermal relaxation time of the target absorbing the laser radiation to confine the thermal damage and spare surrounding skin structures. PicoWay’s ultra-short picosecond pulse enables the strongest photoacoustic impact needed to fracture pigment particles into smaller particles than other lasers, using lower fluences, for better clearance in fewer treatments. The relaxation time of a target is determined by its size. Fragmenting the absorber into smaller particles enables the phagocytes to more effectively dispose of the fragmented particulates. Because the wavelength and pulse duration of the laser are closely controlled, treatment of pigmented lesions and tattoos can be achieved with minimal energy densities, reducing the possibility of adverse effects on adjacent normal skin structures.

31 Aug JUVÉDERM® FAQs

What is JUVÉDERM® made of?

JUVÉDERM® is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural complex sugar that contributes to the volume and elasticity of the skin and is found naturally in all living organisms. Hyaluronic acid is instrumental in the delivery and retention of moisture and nutrients to the skin, and levels of this compound in the skin naturally decrease with the progression of age. The hyaluronic acid in JUVÉDERM® is created during an advanced manufacturing process and is specially formulated as a smooth and malleable gel to ensure the most natural looking results possible.

How Does JUVÉDERM® Work?

Your skin naturally produces hyaluronic acid, a sugar-based compound responsible for delivering and maintaining moisture and nutrient levels in skin cells, and which creates the appearance of volume and smoothness in young, supple skin. Unfortunately, with the progression of time, your skin’s ability to manufacture its own hyaluronic acid diminishes. JUVÉDERM® is a smooth gel that is made of cross-linked hyaluronic acid particles. When injected into fine lines, wrinkles, furrows, or sunken areas of the face, JUVÉDERM® replenishes the hyaluronic acid that has been absorbed into your body over time, helping you achieve a more youthful appearance.

JUVÉDERM® comes in a number of formulas of varying strengths, so treatments can be tailored to the specific needs of each patient. JUVÉDERM® is effective in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles as well as in plumping up the lips, filling in the cheek area, and even restoring a youthful, rounded shape to the face. While JUVÉDERM® provides very visible and long-lasting results, patients who have extensive facial wrinkling or sagging may be more appropriate candidates for facial plastic surgery, such as a facelift or a browlift.

Is pre-treatment testing required?

No pre-treatment allergy testing is required for JUVÉDERM® treatments. Hyaluronic acid already occurs naturally in human skin, and the hyaluronic acid that is used in JUVÉDERM® is created through biosynthesis and is not of animal origin, so it is highly biocompatible.

Are JUVÉDERM® results immediate?

Yes. While the appearance of treated areas will continue to improve for a few days following JUVÉDERM® treatment, patients enjoy immediate reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in areas treated with JUVÉDERM®.

Is there downtime following JUVÉDERM® treatment?

There is no downtime required after JUVÉDERM® treatment. Patients who undergo JUVÉDERM® treatment can expect to be able to return to work or other normal activities immediately, with only mild redness or soreness at the site of the injections.

The hyaluronic acid found in Juvederm promotes hydration in the skin, naturally restoring volume to sagging areas.  The procedure only takes about 15 to 20 minutes to administer. Since it’s a non-invasive cosmetic surgery process that is accomplished by injecting the gel directly into the troubled layers of the dermis, results are instantaneous and there is virtually no recovery time needed. Juvederm is FDA approved and because of its chemical compounds, it can be used on almost any skin type or color. There are also different options for unique types of skin and skin problems, enabling you to customize your treatment to your needs.

17 Aug Benefits of Botox Injections – Nashville TN

The Many Benefits of Botox Injections

BOTOX® Cosmetic, offered in our Nashville, Tennessee office, provides a quick and effective remedy for the facial lines and wrinkles that age, stress, worry, and environmental factors can produce, even on a younger person’s face. A BOTOX® injection skin treatment smoothes frown lines on the forehead, between the eyes, and at the base of the nose. With BOTOX® Cosmetic, derived from botulinum toxin, “crow’s feet” wrinkles at the corners of the eyes fade or disappear for a more youthful and vital facial appearance.

BOTOX® Cosmetic provides candidates for this increasingly popular procedure with an effective treatment for facial lines and wrinkles. From the treatment of “crow’s feet” at the edge of the eyes to glabellar lines (wrinkles between the brows), BOTOX® Cosmetic can smooth a wide range of facial lines and wrinkles with a simple 10-minute treatment. BOTOX® Cosmetic is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for people aged 18 to 65.

Because BOTOX® Cosmetic involves only a few small injections, a very large number of people seeking the treatment find they are excellent candidates. BOTOX® Cosmetic has been proven safe for a wide range of candidates. While there are many medical uses for the protein that makes up BOTOX® Cosmetic, the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles is far and away the most common application. Anyone who would like to smooth wrinkles through BOTOX® Cosmetic – whether they be crow’s feet around the eyes or wrinkles around the mouth – is potentially a candidate for this effective treatment.  If you would like more information on BOTOX Cosmetic treatment, or if you would like to schedule a consultation to talk more about your options, please contact Dr. Nicholas Sieveking in Nashville, Tennessee today.

Botox for Eyes – Nashville, TN

“Dynamic wrinkles,” or wrinkles caused by facial expression and muscle movement, are especially prevalent in the area around the eyes. Fortunately, these wrinkles are very responsive to BOTOX® treatments. One of the benefits of BOTOX® injections is that BOTOX® Cosmetic weakens the muscles responsible for squinting and crinkling of the eye area. The treatment effectively reduces or eliminates crow’s feet and other wrinkles around the eyes. Since BOTOX® injections only affect muscle nerves, not nerves of sensation, patients do not experience a loss of feeling in the treated area.

Botox for Brows – Nashville, TN

Smiling, laughing, and frowning can all result in permanent wrinkling of the brow. Removing wrinkles from the area between the eyes can dramatically change a person’s appearance from one of continual anger or sadness to one of contentment and restedness. Because BOTOX® treatments are so effective in improving moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, many patients have them as an alternative to a brow lift. Reducing deep, stubborn furrows between the brows is also a widely documented benefit of BOTOX® injections for men. You will start to see aesthetic improvement from your BOTOX® injections after a few days, and results can last up to four months.

Botox for Forehead Wrinkles – Nashville, TN

Wrinkles on the forehead can give the face an older, more haggard appearance. As people age, the muscles used to form facial expressions create permanent creases in the skin. One of the benefits of BOTOX® injections is that they can be used to relax the facial muscles, resulting in smoother skin and fewer wrinkles. In areas such as the forehead, where horizontal wrinkles tend to form, the BOTOX® benefits are particularly valuable. Contrary to the common misconception that a doctor must treat each wrinkle, only the underlying muscles that cause wrinkles must be treated. Once you have received your BOTOX® treatment, the muscles that ordinarily cause wrinkles and lines to appear in the forehead are no longer as active for a period of several months.

Botox for Jaw Contouring – Nashville, TN

Recently, doctors have discovered a new BOTOX® benefit: Patients with oversized masseter muscles, the muscles of the jaw used for chewing, can be treated with BOTOX® injections. Many patients with square-shaped faces want a non-surgical option to give them the oval face shape they desire. BOTOX ® treatments have been reported to reduce the size of the masseter muscles, resulting in a gently curved cheek and jaw. There are several additional benefits of using BOTOX® injections for jaw contouring. The procedure is non-invasive. A BOTOX® treatment can be quickly performed in your doctor’s office. There is virtually no recovery time necessary; you can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment. Although the bone structure is not changed, the reduction of muscle thickness noticeably refines the angle of the patient’s jaw.

Alternative Health Benefits of Botox

The benefits of BOTOX ® injections are not limited to treating wrinkles. The FDA originally approved BOTOX ® for several non-cosmetic treatments, including blepharospasm, a condition in which the eyes twitch uncontrollably, migraine headaches, and excessive sweating. To remedy blepharospasm and muscle spasms in other areas of the body, BOTOX® treatments are used to block the nerve impulses that cause the affected muscles to twitch. BOTOX ® injections in the forehead, brow, side of the head, and back of the neck, can reduce the frequency and severity of migraine headaches for up to six months. BOTOX® treatments can also reduce excessive sweating by blocking the chemical transmitter that induces sweating. Reduction of chronic back pain and jaw tension are two additional health benefits of BOTOX® that extend beyond aesthetic enhancement.

BOTOX® Treatment for Men – Nashville, TN

While the majority of BOTOX® patients are women, many men are seeking the treatment as well. BOTOX® injections for men are a very subtle way to improve the appearance of the face, and as the procedure takes so little time, a busy man can conceivably have the procedure done on his lunch break and head right back to the office.
