layer of skin, the dermis, becomes thinner as your body is not
able to keep up with the amount of collagen and hyaluronic acid
(hyaluronate) loss which occurs with aging, sun damage, and
environmental stressors. Collagen and Hyaluronate are support
structures for our skin. When diminished production occurs there
is a net loss of these important components in our skin resulting
in the occurrence of wrinkles and thinning lips.

and Hyaluronate Replacement Therapy—New all Natural Products
Replacing what your body has lost with time can be accomplished by
filling in lines and grooves with a purified collagen or hyaline
gel injection. Collagen and Hyaluronic acid are natural components
of our skin and diminish with age. These proteins and gels are in
a dynamic state of production and degradation within our bodies.
The key to successful rejuvenation is to maintain adequate levels
to support our skin and maintain sufficient volume to prevent
wrinkles and grooves. In the recent pass our main option was the
use of Bovine derived collagen known as Zyderm and Zyplast. This
therapy required skin testing prior to treatment and results
usually lasted 3-4 months. The following products are now
available and in full use often times in combination to produce
the best possible results. Dr. Newman can use his experience with
over 1000 patients to help meet your desired goals for wrinkles
Both Cosmoderm and Cosmoplast represent the best in natural human
collagen replacement therapy. The advantages of these products is
their softness and bio-identical compatability with our skin. No
skin testing is required for either cosmoderm or cosmoplast. Both
natural collagens contain local anesthetic solution which makes
administration with limited discomfort. Dr. Newman uses both
Cosmoderm and Cosmoplast to correct wrinkles around the mouth and
often will combine theses therapies with Restylane, Hyaloform,
Captique, and Radiesse.
Recently, there has been an advancement in medical technology
which has enabled Dr. Newman at Premier Plastic Surgery to treat wrinkles, thinning lips, acne scars, and chicken
pox scars with your body’s own natural skin cells known as
fibroblasts. The ISOLAGEN system takes a sample of your body’s
skin and cultivates the cells and collagen so that they may be
safely reintroduced into your body to produce longer lasting
results than could be achieved with traditional collagen. Isolagen
therapy has been available in England and Australia since 2002.
Dr. Newman was one of the first physicians in the
to use the Isolagen technology for patients in the bay area.
According to Dr. Newman, the Isolagen process has been refined
over the past few years to enrich the quality and quantity of
fibroblast cells available for transplantation. Recent data
submitted by Isolagen Incorporated to the FDA should result in
widespread approval of this process for patients at our office.
We have an active list of patient awaiting this therapy once the
new United States Labaratory is allowed to process more skin
samples. If you would like to be on our Isolagen call list please

Perlane, Restylane Touch, Restylane SubQ, Hyalaform, Hyalaform
Plus and Captique:
Recently, there has been the introduction of hyaluronic gels into
the United States market. Restylane, Perlane, Restylane Touch,
Restylane Sub Q, Hyalaform, Hyalaform Plus and Captique are
examples of these products. Dr. Newman has experience with each
one of these products and has satisfied patients with typical
results lasting 4-6 months with some patients maintaining
satisfactory results at one year! The combination of Cosmoderm
and Cosmoplast with these hyaluronic gel fillers can achieve
greater results than either one alone. With so many different
fillers available, a thorough evaluation by a physician
experienced with hyaluronic gels such as Dr. Newman will help you
achieve the most natural feeling and looking results.
Juvensse Capsules---The Ultrapure and Natural Source for Omega
Fatty acids and Antioxidant Vitamins
In order to maintain lasting results from all forms of collagen
and hyaluronate replacement therapy and to help maintain our own
body supply, Dr. Newman has introduced the addition of key Omega
fatty acids and antioxidants to his patients. Backed by years of
scientific study and clinical trials in Europe, Juvensse pearls
have become an essential component of patients in our skin care
programs. The key ingredients are ultra pure and come in one easy
to swallow capsule. Linoleic Acid and Gamma linolenic acid from
Evening Primrose and Borage Oils are the Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty
acids necessary for collagen maintenance. In addition both
Vitamin E and Vitamin A palmitate are included. The recommended
dose is to take one to two capsules with meals. For more
information about this skin supplement and the complete line of
anti-aging therapies for skin health we invite you to make an
appointment for a skin consultation.
