From fox 5 New York, it’s time for more good day New York.
All right when you take the mask off what do you see? You know what I’m talking about, how do what do we do Lori, we got to do something!
I don’t know well many people are getting what’s called tweak-ment. Minimally invasive procedures done with little or no downtime. Dermatologist Janine Downey joining us this morning with more good morning Doctor Janine
Hi ladies it’s so good to be back, how are you Lore, how are you?
We’re doing good, we’re doing good. Did you make up this term treatment?
So, it’s been in the media a little bit it’s been in the literature. So no, I did not make it up, but I love the term and my patients are coming in asking for a little tweak because they don’t want that much but they just want a little. So, like Lori explained, non-invasive minimally abrasive procedures that really give you bang for your buck
Okay so where are we going to start. What’s your first thing you’re going to show us
Well so Caroles so carol lace is a laser by the Lutronic corporation this is good for males and females it’s good for all races and if you’re putting the laser on the scalp, it promotes micro channels in the scalp and then you rub in this patented serum called caro-factor and the caro-factor has growth, growth factor and proteins in it and it helps the hair to grow and so it’s not PRP’s no needles
So, you can’t
Did everybody hear, that no needles
No needles you have a relationship with them right Janine like you’ve lectured or something
I’ve lectured for them and I’ve done webinars for them so I do have a relationship with them absolutely
So, this is pretty good because I mean you don’t have to have surgery but it really works
It really works and patients are very, very, pleased. So, if you have hair follicles, we can bring them back. For people with no hair follicles that’s different so everybody needs a consult. They need to come in and have myself take a look at them my physician assistant takes a look at them so we can see where we are, but with PRP needles are involved it gets a lot kind of a slower process
My patients really like a lot
Guys I’m using it myself
Restylane, we hear that a lot. What do you use Restylane for?
So, I did the original FDA clinical trials for wrestling to be approved way back in the day so wrestling this is an off label used for under the eyes and a lot of men are doing this procedure as well as women. So, you see how her eyes were hollow in the first picture and in the second picture, she looks refreshed. So, this is something where we put hyaluronic acid under your eyes it is reversible and people don’t like it but because men can’t wear makeup. I would say this is about a 50 50 procedure. This is done in all races both sexes. There is down time you can’t exercise for two days you’ve got to sleep on your back for three days. No rubbing your eyes and no wearing swim goggles because you’ll displace it.
What if you wear contacts or something?
If you wear contacts, you can put your contacts in and out that’s not a problem Lore thank you for the question
But it may be worth a three-day downtime
Oh yeah no it’ll make you look years younger a 100 percent ,a 100 percent
Okay what’s your next one and what kind of relationship do you have with it, Janine?
So Introgen, so I lecture for Introgen. I’ve done webinars for them as well and Introgen is a skin tightening. A lot of people want their jawline and their neck tightened and like Nora Ephron famously said we can’t forget about our neck. The neck aging beguiles the face aging. So, I tell everybody all the time, don’t forget about your neck. So, this is a tightening procedure that you can do on males and females on all races and many people are combining it with Kybele to you know kind of zap off some of that chin fat and Kybele is an injectable that’s a separate procedure but that’s like liposuction in a needle because people are upset about what their faces look like from here down on their zoom calls and they’re absolutely horrified
It sure is Doctor Janine where can people find you?
You can find me in Montclair New Jersey at Image Dermatology

Let’s see your neck your neck looks fabulous, oh yes
Yes, it does
And so does your hair
