Aristocrat Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics MedSpa Glossary

There is so much involved in getting plastic surgery and non-surgical MedSpa procedures done that it can be overwhelming. But knowledge is the power you need to help you feel more comfortable about having a procedure. So to get the most out of your MedSpa consultation, we’ve put together some terms and procedures commonly used in cosmetic and aesthetic treatments to help you understand what all of this means.

Understanding What Injectables Are

Injectables are chemical substances inserted into the skin with a needle that supports muscles in the face or plumps up the skin to help lessen the appearance of wrinkles, lines in the forehead, and crows’ feet.

Injectables contain fillers, which are a variety of substances that can be targeted to fill-in areas that may be hollowing due to age or soften lines caused by aging. This is all to give you a significantly more youthful appearance without expensive and painful surgeries. Sculptra®, Juvederm®, Restylane®, Versa®, and Radiesse® are just a few of the name brands carried by Aristocrat.

You’ve also heard of Botox® or Dysport®. In combination, the substances in these targeted injections work to erase lines and fill in areas that need a boost in plumpness. Using Hyaluronic Acid, Calcium Hydroxylapatite, and various other dermal fillers, your face can look as full and youthful as you remember it being five to ten years ago.

In our New York MedAesthetics office, we offer a fully integrated aesthetic surgery office and medical spa. The combined experience of Dr. Tehrani, our nursing staff, and our medical estheticians will determine the most appropriate treatment plan for each patient.

Our entire staff at Aristocrat Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics in Long Island and Manhattan is dedicated to helping you find state-of-the-art treatments and regimens, helping you to look and feel your best at every age.

Of the many injectable treatments we offer at Aristocrat, each one is formulated to work effectively to help keep you looking and feeling great. Here are some of our most popular injectables:

BOTOX

Botox is a simple non-surgical cosmetic procedure to smooth the deep, persistent lines between your brows that develop as you age. BOTOX is a relatively brief cosmetic treatment, involving tiny injections of a special protein-based cosmetic injectable.

Coolsculpting

Coolsculpting is a revolutionary non-surgical contouring treatment that freezes stubborn fat, which is then removed naturally from the body. The FDA-approved treatment requires no needles, no special diets, no supplements, no incisions, and no downtime.

Dysport

Dysport is a cosmetic injectable treatment (FDA-approved) that reduces the appearances of fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles on the forehead. It is similar to BOTOX and injected directly into the site of wrinkles to prevent the underlying muscles from contracting.

Juvederm®

Juvederm is touted as the “next generation” of cosmetic injectables. Its gel gently smoothes wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose to restore a youthful volume to the face.

Juvéderm® Volbella® XC

Juvéderm Volbella XC has made waves as a definitive treatment for signs of aging and volume loss in the lips and around the mouth.

Restylane

Restylane is a safe and natural cosmetic injectable that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.

Radiesse®

Radiesse is a synthetic cosmetic injectable that reduces wrinkles, creases, depressed scars, and oral commissures by augmenting the body’s natural collagen supply.

Sculptra®

A Sculptra treatment is a cosmetic injectable filler that is well-known for its natural looking anti-aging results. It’s made from poly-L-lactic acid—a safe, synthetic, biocompatible, and biodegradable material.

MedSpa Glossary of Treatments



We offer a broad spectrum of surgical and non-invasive medical aesthetic procedures to make you look and feel great.

Cellulite Reduction

Cellulite is an unsightly, seemingly impervious skin condition that almost all women have to deal with. Cellulite is lumpy, dimpled tissue caused by swollen fatty deposits under the skin. Aristocrat MedSpa offers three treatments to effectively reduce cellulite:

SmoothShapes, which uses Photomology® a trademarked technique that combines infrared laser light, vacuums, and massage to non-invasively smooth the skin and reduce fatty deposits that lead to cellulite. Cellulaze, which is a minimally invasive treatment that uses precise, laser-equipped cannulas (very small tubes) for cellulite reduction.

And Cellfina, which is minimally invasive procedure that uses a microblade technique to target cellulite on the thighs and buttocks.

Skin Tightening

Aristocrat Plastic Surgery is one of the few New York plastic surgery practices that offers cutting edge laser treatments, absorbable threads, minimally invasive procedures, and temperature-controlled radiofrequency treatments that can achieve skin tightening on numerous areas of the face and body.

Skin Rejuvenation

A number of treatments offered in our MedSpa Skin Rejuvenation group are designed to give you clearer, younger looking skin: Fraxel Laser, Forever Young BB (Photofacial), HydraFacial®, Dermapen, Nano Laser Peel, and Antera 3D Skin Analysis.

Fat Reduction

Aristocrat MedSpa offers Coolsculpting and Tone X Pagani body contouring treatments. Coolsculpting is a revolutionary non-surgical body contouring treatment that freezes stubborn fat, which is then removed naturally from the body. The FDA-approved treatment requires no needles, no special diets, no supplements, no incisions, and no downtime.

Tone X Pagani was invented by Milan based, ELECTRONICA PAGANI, a leading developer and manufacturer of medical devices in the field of Physiotherapy devices since 1947. TONETM, powered by Pagani x Cryo T-Shock is a revolutionary new technology in body contouring, fat elimination, and skin tightening. It uses thermal shock to erase fat cells, smooth out cellulite and tighten and tone loose skin.

Nuvo Diet

We offer a fully supervised weight loss program known famously as the Nuvo Diet. The Nuvo Diet is unique on its own because it is the only fully supervised and customizable diet program where you can lose 20-40 or more pounds in as little as 40 days.

ThermiVa — Vaginal Rejuvenation

ThermiVa is an aesthetic device that reverses the effects of aging and childbirth on the vagina and vulva. The ThermiVa procedure is a gentle and painless way to address issues like incontinence, vulvovaginal laxity, overactive bladder, orgasmic dysfunction and atrophy. The FDA-approved ThermiVa uses temperature controlled radiofrequency to rebuild collagen in the vulva and the vaginal tissues.

Laser Hair Removal

Aristocrat Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics offers in-office laser hair removal using a Sciton laser for patients who want to achieve a silky smooth, hairless appearance.

Spider Vein Treatment

Spider vein treatment or sclerotherapy is a very effective, safe and relatively painless method available for eradicating spider veins.

Laser Tattoo Removal

New York Laser Tattoo Removal – performed in our locations in Long Island and Manhattan. A laser tattoo removal is the most efficient and comfortable method to erase the mistakes made in the past.

Ultherapy

Not a facelift but an uplift, Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to gradually strengthen and tone your skin from deep within. The benefit? Tighter, firmer, better-fitting skin! Ultherapy is a non-surgical face treatment that actually lifts and tones loose or sagging skin without any downtime.

Chemical Peel

A Chemical Peel is a technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin. Facial skin is mostly treated, and scarring can be improved. Chemical peels are intended to remove the outermost layers of the skin. To accomplish this task, the chosen peel solution induces a controlled injury to the skin.
