Plano, Texas Dentist Mark Sowell, DDS Attends Continuing Education Programs for Cosmetic Dentistry

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

Plano, TX (PRWEB) May 21, 2015

In April, Dr. Sowell attended a two-day hands-on course in implant dentistry at the Spear Institute in Scottsdale, Arizona. The intensive course covered the essentials of treatment planning, placement and restoration of dental implants in both simple and complex implant reconstructions.

“Dental implants are an important component of my dental practice,” said Dr. Sowell. “It is important to stay on the leading edge of implant dentistry by practicing the latest techniques and gaining exposure to the newest materials available.”

Following the dental implant training, Dr. Sowell attended the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry’s (AACD) 31st Annual Scientific Session, in San Francisco. Dr. Sowell has been an Accredited Member of the AACD since 2002 and is the only accredited cosmetic dentist in Plano, Texas.

“Many patients are surprised to learn that the American Dental Association does not recognize cosmetic dentistry as a specialty and that there is no formal training requirement to call oneself a cosmetic dentist. Becoming an accredited member of the AACD was important to me to distinguish myself as an experienced and skillful cosmetic dentist,” said Dr. Sowell.

The AACD is the world’s largest international dental organization dedicated to advancing excellence in the art and science of cosmetic dentistry through responsible esthetics.

The conference featured more than 48 hands-on workshops, 85 lectures, and 100 speakers. Roughly 2,000 dental professionals attended the event, which is geared toward dentists, lab technicians, hygienists, and dental team members to help them refine their skills, learn the latest techniques, and share ideas.

“The courses I’ve completed are extremely intense,” said Dr. Sowell. “Beyond the high level of clinical education offered, these are unique opportunities to spend time with colleagues and gain exposure to the latest materials and techniques in cosmetic and implant dentistry.”

Premier Image Cosmetic & Laser Surgery Unveils New Non-Surgical Treatment to Enhance Appearance

Saturday, February 21st, 2015

Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) January 30, 2015

Dr. Louis DeJoseph, one of the partners of Premier Image Cosmetic & Laser Surgery and one of the respected cosmetic surgeons in Atlanta, has announced that his practice has added Restylane Silk as a new injectable treatment.

According to Dr. DeJoseph, Restylane Silk is the first and only FDA-approved product designed for subtle lip enhancement and to treat nasolabial folds, which are the wrinkles and lines that form around the mouth also known as smile lines. Restylane Silk consists of a clear gel that is comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural sugar found in the skin. The gel formula is then injected into the skin with a specially designed ultrafine needle. Because Restylane Silk utilizes smoother and smaller particles than what is typically used in other Restylane treatments, it creates more natural-looking results.

“The ideal candidate is anyone wanting softer, fuller lips,” said Dr. DeJoseph.

Premier Image Cosmetic & Laser Surgery began offering Restylane Silk on January 22 to patients. Dr. DeJoseph said typically patients will begin to see their desired results after just one treatment. He also added that there is minimal downtime for patients who undergo a Restylane Silk treatment, which is another important benefit.

Dr. DeJoseph is a national trainer for the leading brands of neurotoxins and facial fillers. He said adding Restylane Silk to his practice’s growing portfolio of facial fillers was a natural fit so that his patients have access to a more subtle approach to enhancing the lips. Additionally, Dr. DeJoseph said Premier Image Cosmetic & Laser Surgery is one of the few practices in the southeast to offer Restylane Silk.

“Restylane Silk is viewed to have more subtle results, which is attracting audiences from all ages,” added Dr. DeJoseph.

Founded in 1970, Premier Image Cosmetic & Laser Surgery was the first cosmetic surgery practice in Georgia to specialize in aesthetic plastic surgery for body and facial procedures. With a foundation of excellence, Premier Image Cosmetic & Laser Surgery is dedicated to the advancement and development of cosmetic and laser surgery techniques. Dr. DeJoseph and Dr. Marc Klein have set the standards for superior care and results at Premier Image Cosmetic & Laser Surgery.

Dr. DeJoseph’s focus is centered on relationships because he recognizes cosmetic procedures are a very personal choice for the patient.

Shu Cosmetic Surgery Announces New Liposonix Non-Invasive Fat Reduction Treatment

Saturday, December 6th, 2014

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) November 25, 2014

Shu Cosmetic Surgery is now offering Liposonix treatments, the latest in non-invasive fat reduction technology. Liposonix uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy to permanently destroy targeted fat cells without surgery.

“Liposonix is a revolutionary non-surgical solution for people who are close to their ideal shape, but have stubborn areas of fat that just won’t go away no matter how much they exercise or diet,” says Dr. Shu. “The procedure takes about one hour and, while individual results can vary, patients typically achieve a waistline reduction of approximately one inch (equivalent to one pant or dress size) within 8-12 weeks after receiving a single treatment.”

The Liposonix system technology works by focusing ultrasound energy below the surface of the skin in order to melt only targeted fat tissue – similar to how light from the sun can be focused with a magnifying glass. The treated fat tissue is removed through the body’s natural healing process, leaving the patient with a thinner, more contoured waistline.

During the treatment, patient may experience some discomfort, prickling, tingling or warmth. After treatment, patients may experience temporary mild redness, minimal bruising, and swelling. There is no special post-care or special diet or exercise program required in order to achieve results. Patients typically resume normal activities immediately after the Liposonix procedure. Liposonix is not intended for those that are pregnant. It is also not recommended for those who cannot “pinch an inch”.

“Our patients are very happy with Liposonix because it delivers results without the risks typically associated with surgical fat reduction procedures. It is not liposuction, or a replacement for a healthy lifestyle and exercise; but it is a quick, easy way to help patients slim that last inch and hit their personal shape goals,” stated Dr. Shu.

San Francisco Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Ben Amini, is Now Offering a Teeth Whitening Special Just in Time for Holiday Season

Sunday, November 16th, 2014

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 07, 2014

San Francisco cosmetic dentist, Dr. Ben Amini, is now offering a teeth whitening special just in time for patients who want to look their best this holiday season. The special gives patients $ 100 off the regular price of laser teeth whitening, a procedure that quickly reduces or eliminates stains from the surface of teeth without causing discomfort. Valid for November 2014, some restrictions do apply. A recent dental examination and cleaning must be completed. Teeth must have no cavities and the gums must be healthy prior to teeth whitening. Patients who want to receive this offer should visit and print the offer page to present at their appointment.

Laser teeth whitening uses EzLase technology, a diode laser made by Biolase, to turn teeth up to nine shades whiter at a single appointment. The advantages of laser teeth whitening include:

    Use of laser energy to accelerate whitening faster than conventional in-office whitening procedeures
    Results that are visible before leaving the office
    Less tendency to cause tooth sensitivity
    Completion in about half the time required for other whitening treatments

After whitening teeth using EzLase, the team RDA of Dr. Ben Amini, San Francisco smile makeover expert, and Associate dentists at CitiDent remove the whitening gel and wash the teeth thoroughly.

Teeth whitening with EzLase works well for several types of superficial stains, including those related to tobacco use and consumption of heavily pigmented foods and drinks. As a common focal point of social interaction, the smile is a powerful target for improvement of appearance and confidence. This is one fast way for patients to rejuvenate their looks in time for the holidays and the New Year. In some cases, patients may benefit from a smile makeover, which is a personalized selection of cosmetic treatments such as laser teeth whitening, veneers and Invisalign.

Vitality Medical and Cosmetic Center Brings The Time Machine Procedure To Oklahoma City

Sunday, September 7th, 2014

Oklahoma City, OK (PRWEB) September 04, 2014

“The Time Machine Procedure℠ is a new, non-surgical treatment that’s helping men and women look years younger, and it’s now available for the first time in Oklahoma City” says Ron Nerad, CEO of Vitality Medical & Cosmetic Center, which is introducing the breakthrough procedure to the public at the “Introduction To The Time Machine” event on Thursday, Sept. 4 from 12:00 to 8:00 p.m. Greeting the attendees will be an exact replica of the iconic DeLorean “Time Machine” car from the “Back To The Future” movies, to emphasize how the new treatment can take a person’s appearance “back in time” 5 to 10 years and beyond. Vitality’s staff will follow the “time travel” theme, dressed in the styles of different decades. For more information on the event click here:

“An extraordinary combination of leading edge technologies and techniques merged with many years of perfecting, the Time Machine Procedure℠ takes on age-related issues including skin deterioration, sun damage, wrinkles, sagging, and loss of volume, as well as hyperactivity of muscles for facial expression,” says Dr. Mauricio. “Offering complete rejuvenation and natural looking results, this customizable process helps patients appear like they have traveled back in time, emerging how they looked 5 to 10 years ago or more after only a few treatments.”

One component of the treatment is a new micro fractional radio frequency technology, which is designed for simpered tone, texture and tightening of the skin. The skin’s natural reaction is to generate new collagen which results in improved volume and younger looking skin. The procedure is quick and down time is minimal, with amazing results and without having to go under the knife. It can be used in combination with specially selected technologies and skin care products to aid in healing and maximize results.

“The beauty of the Time Machine Procedure℠ is that it’s completely customized to the needs of each patient, taking into account his or her age and skin condition instead of a ‘one treatment fits all’ approach.”

Dr. Mauricio says The Time Machine Procedure℠ is the preferred anti-aging treatment for international celebrities such as Marla Maples, Black Eyed Peas’ Apl de Ap, Hilda Koronel, and Gabby Concepcion among others.
