Facial Plastic Surgeon in Atlanta GAIn 2013, Botox injections were the number one non-surgical facial procedure performed in the United States. There has also been an increase in the number of facial resurfacing treatments such as chemical peels, micro dermabrasion, and laser therapy. Invasive surgical procedures used to be needed to obtain the results that most people hoped to achieve from having “work done” on their faces. Today, however, with different options available to help erase the signs of aging and to rejuvenate the skin, men and women are finding it easier than ever to enhance their appearances. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, we offer a broad spectrum of therapies from topical therapy to resurfacing procedures.

Non-surgical facial rejuvenation offers a wide range of procedures with many different options and techniques. Injections can help the muscles relax in order to smooth away dynamic wrinkles. Other dermal fillers are available to minimizing deep wrinkles and filling in facial scars, and they can also be used to plump up the lips. Microdermabrasion, facials, and chemical peels are used to bring back the youthful glow of the skin that often gets lost with age and sun damage.

The popularity of these nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedures is due to the fact that they are designed for today’s busy lifestyle. Most people do not have the extra time in their schedules for weeks of downtime and recovery. However, most people can fit in a nonsurgical rejuvenation procedure during their lunch breaks. Botox and dermal filler injections take just a few minutes to administer, while resurfacing treatments can be more like a spa treatment than a medical procedure.

At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, we strive to not only give our patients the quality of service that they are looking for, but we also strive to offer a variety of procedures so that all patients can find something that they are looking for. Contact Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC today to schedule your appointment.

PrintVascular malformations are abnormal clusters of blood vessels that occur during fetal development. These lesions are present at birth and will typically grow as the child grows, with growth continuing into adulthood. This steady growth throughout life can have a negative impact on a person’s self esteem, especially if the vascular malformation is on the face, scalp, or other visible area of the body. A vascular malformation will not disappear or diminish on its own. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, we offer a wide range of facial plastic surgery techniques for patients who suffer from vascular malformation.

There are different types of vascular malformations and they all vary greatly in severity. There is also a blood flow classification associated with vascular malformations that must be taken into consideration when determining what type of treatment is best. Dr. Benjamin Stong is a dual board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in a wide range of facial plastic surgery techniques and who is exceptionally talented and trained in vascular malformation treatment. Treatment for vascular malformation depends on its type, location, and depth. For superficial lesions, laser therapy is commonly used for treatment. However, surgical excision is needed for lesions that are deep within the skin. Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC uses the most advanced technology available to enable removal of vascular malformations.

If you or your child has a vascular malformation, contact Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC today. We are equipped to handle your unique vascular malformation concern, and we are committed to delivering the highest standard of care to all of our patients. We offer personalized care and commitment to all of our patients, and we are here to provide results that go beyond the surface.

Revision Rhinoplasty Surgery in Atlanta GAWhen a person decides to have rhinoplasty surgery, there are usually emotional reasons behind the decision. Perhaps a person has been teased about the shape of his nose, or an accident caused the nose to become misshapen and the constant reminder every time a person looks in the mirror causes her to have a painful memory. Whatever the reason is, when the end result is not ideal a failed rhinoplasty can be devastating. One of the most devastating causes of a failed rhinoplasty is technical incompetence. Patients choose their surgeon based on reviews and reputation, yet sometimes those reviews are misguiding and patients end up depending on an incompetent surgery for a very important procedure.

Laser Skin Resurfacing in Atlanta GAThere are different options for skin rejuvenation and resurfacing procedures for the face. Almost all of the different procedures can be done on any area of the face whether it is around the eyes, mouth, cheeks, or chin. There is minimal discomfort and downtime associated with skin resurfacing treatments, making them a popular choice for those who wish to brighten and enhance the appearance of their face.

Laser skin resurfacing is used by plastic surgeons to reduce facial wrinkles, scars, and blemishes. The latest in laser technologies gives plastic surgeons a new level of control in laser resurfacing, allowing for extreme precision – which is especially beneficial for the delicate areas of the face. Laser resurfacing uses concentrated pulsating beams of light that removes unwanted, damaged skin one layer at a time. The laser beam used will remove the outer layer of skin while also heating the underlying skin layer. This works to stimulate growth of new collagen fibers, so that as the skin heals it is smoother and firmer.

Dermabrasioin is used to “refinish” the skin’s top layer through a method of controlled surgical scraping. Dermabrasion is used to smooth out fine facial wrinkles, and it can also be used to remove the pre-cancerous growths called keratosis. Dermabrasion can be used on the entire facial area, and it is a favorite for those seeking a very “quick fix”.

A chemical peel can be used on the face to smooth the texture of the skin by removing damaged outer layers. It is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of the facial skin, as well as the skin on the neck and hands. Chemical peels are used to help improve the appearance of acne scars, age and liver spots, freckles, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and other areas of concern.

If you are interested in a skin resurfacing treatment contact Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC to schedule an appointment. You can put your best face forward with the expert care at Kalos.

Photofacial Treatments in Atlanta GAIntense Pulse Light (IPL) skin treatments are a breakthrough photo rejuvenation treatment for the skin. This facial treatment represents the new standard for age defying photo rejuvenation of the skin. It can treat sun damage non-invasively to address the effects of photo-aging and sun damage with little to no recovery time and low risk of complications. This FDA approved skin treatment provides dramatic results for a variety of different skin conditions including rosacea, age spots, sun induced freckles, acne scarring, blemishes, sun damage, and sometimes even unwanted facial hair.

The skin that is regularly exposed to the sun ages in appearance much more quickly than skin that regularly stays covered up. To contrast your skin, compare the skin of your hands, face, and neck (that regularly receive sun exposure) to the skin of your breasts and inner arm. While using a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 daily is incredibly important to protecting your skin from the sun’s damaging effects, it is still exposed and thus, ages faster.

At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, Dr. Benjamin Stong specializes in repairing damaged skin, as well as facial plastic and reconstructive surgeries. Dr. Stong and the staff at Kalos are here to help you give your facial appearance a new start by turning back the hands of time. Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC offers a full range of photo laser facial options. You can trust your facial appearance in the hands of the skilled and talented Dr. Benjamin Stong. Contact Kalos to schedule a consultation.

Facial Fillers Plastic Surgeon in Atlanta GALip injections are a common cosmetic procedure that can give patients fuller, plumper lips. There are many types of dermal fillers that can be injected into the lips and around the mouth, but the most common fillers are hyaluronic acid fillers. These products contain substances similar to hyaluronic acid which is a natural substance found in the body. Hyaluronic acid fillers are able to improve the shape, volume, and structure of the lips. The results typically last up to six months, gradually decreasing.

At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, we offer different types of hyaluronic acid fillers for our patients. Dr. Benjamin Stong is a dual board certified plastic surgeon who has the expertise needed to know which type of filler will best achieve the desired results for each of his patients. All of the fillers available at Kalos are injected the same way and give patients similar results. Some of the fillers also contain lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic to make the injections less painful and uncomfortable.

There are benefits for patients who choose to have hyaluronic acid filler injections. Once these fillers are injected, the gel in the filler supports and shapes the tissues of the lips. Dr. Benjamin Stong is able to control the volume of the lips during the injections because of the immediate effect of the gel injections. There is also a very unlikely chance that a person would have an allergic reaction to the fillers since the substances used are so similar to those found in the body naturally. If you would like to set up an appointment to discuss your options for lip injections, call Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC today. Your appearance matters to you, therefore it matters to us.

Dysport Injections in Atlanta GAMany people desire to have a younger looking appearance. Whether it is for personal reasons or they are hoping that a fresher appearance will get them ahead in their job hunt, many people are having “things done” to help them radiate youth. Botox has been a popular choice among many people needing a small fix for the eyes, bridge between the eyes, forehead, or lines around the mouth. However, some patients are finding that they have begun to experience Botox immunity or resistance. For those who are not finding the results that they desire from Botox injections, Dysport is an effective alternative.

The human body can form a resistance or intolerance to many drugs. Prolonged use can limit the effects that many medications have at relieving the symptoms that people do not wish to have. Although it is not a common occurrence, antibodies can develop to the Botox molecule, which result in patients having a very short duration of the injection’s benefits. For patients where this is a concern, typically switching to Dysport injections will provide the expected results.

Dysport is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyes in adults less than 65 years of age. Dysport has been designed to last for up to four entire months to prevent the contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines between the eyes. For patients who have been treated with Botox and have not seen the results that they desired, Dysport has a different molecular composition that has proven effective in treating frown lines.

At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, Dr. Benjamin Stong offers both Botox and Dysport injections for patients who wish to reduce the signs of aging. If you have questions about Botox or Dysport treatments, contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
