Q A For Your Skinformation. I have a special event this weekend, and I really want to look my best for it. Is there some type of skin treatment that would make me look better right away but wouldn’t cause any swelling or bruising? Yes, this is one of our most common requests from patients, and we recommend the Silk Peel® . The Silk Peel® is a two-in-one treatment that gently exfoliates dead skin cells and simultaneously infuses the skin with a skin-repair product. This diminishes fi ne lines, roughness, and dryness, and the result is that your skin immediately looks smoother, hydrated, and more radiant. The Silk Peel® is appropriate for any skin type or color, and it can also be customized to help with acne or uneven pigmentation. Patients see results after one treatment, and even more signifi cant improvement with subsequent treatments. Q A I saw a medical news show that discussed a treatment called ThermiVa ® for vaginal tightening. It sounded very interesting, and I liked that it seemed to be a simple and painless treatment. Can you tell me more about it? ThermiVa® is a non-surgical treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to rejuvenate vaginal tissues. We have used the same technology to tighten sagging skin on the face and body for 15 years in our practice. The vaginal tissues change due to childbirth and natural aging, and as a result many women experience decreased sexual satisfaction, vaginal dryness, and urinary incontinence. ThermiVa® can help with all of these issues and is a painless procedure that takes about 30 minutes, with no anesthesia or recovery time needed. A series of three treatments is done for best results. ThermiVa® is ideal for the woman who does not want to undergo surgery, and it has a very high rate of patient satisfaction. ® © 2014 Skin Spectrum Jody Comstock, M.D. Tina Pai, M.D. Faiyaaz Kalimullah, M.D. 520.797.8885 6127 N.
