NEWSLETTER FOR THANKSGIVING

Birmingham Plastic Surgery – Dr. Ahmet Karaca

Dear Friends,
The past summer has been full of positive activity! With so many exciting changes, I want to give all of you an update of what’s new and available to you. Also, I would like to thank all of you who made it to our Grand Opening celebration. We had more than 500 people attend, a live band and overall a fun, successful event!
One of the biggest changes this summer is that we moved! Birmingham Plastic Surgery is now located at 210 South Old Woodward Avenue, Suite 250, in Birmingham where I am also the medical director of the spa and share space with Rivage Day Spa. Jessica Lundberg is the director and co-owner.
Also, with the addition of SCITON®’s Halo laser and the Silhouette Instalift™, I can offer many more encompassing non-surgical treatment options.
I’ve broken down our non-surgical office treatments into five groups:
Botox® and fillers
Halo™ Laser Treatments and BBL™ Laser Hair Removal for facial skin resurfacing with minimal downtime
CoolSculpting® with multiple new handles to treat thighs, neck, etc. and Vanquish™ to destroy fat cells with RF
ThermiTIGHT™, ThermiSMOOTH™, ThermiVA™ and THermiDRY™ for non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation, skin tightening, skin smoothing and reduction in sweat from axillary glands
Silhouette Instalift™ Sutures to reshape your face and restore volume in less than 30 minutes
If any of the above sounds interesting, you can visit my website at http://www.drkaraca.com to learn more and view videos. To schedule your consultation, please call our office at 248-257-8281. These services are available seven days a week by appointment.
Those of you who came to the opening received a $100 off coupon for all office procedures, but I am happy to extend this offer to you as well! Simply bring a copy of this email with you when you come in for your consultation. Make sure you view the gorgeous new space and inquire about the spa services as well.
We are printing a new procedure catalog and will be happy to send you one, should you so desire. We have frequent in-house seminars and specials so keep an eye out for announcements and check our website often to see what’s new!
Some of the less common surgical procedures I specialize in are circumferential liposuction of calves and ankles, endoscopic forehead lift, buccal fat reduction of cheeks and body lifts.
I am looking forward to treating every single person to the best of my abilities. A happy patient is a perfect result.
We look forward to see you soon!
Best,
Ahmet R. Karaca, M.D.

BBL can be used in the treatment of Acne

SCITON BROAD BASE LIGHT (BBL™) Acne Therapy
Broad Based Light (BBL™) has now proven to be helpful in the treatment of acne. In many cases, this offers an alternative to oral medications such as Accutane or long-term antibiotics. The shorter wavelengths of BBL™, in the blue-light spectrum, attack p-acne bacteria on the surface and in the sebaceous gland. Along with a home skincare program designed for acne-prone skin, you can experience significant long-term clearance.

What causes acne?

Acne occurs when hair follicle pores are blocked by natural components of the skin. This is the root of most acne lesions. Once blocked, inflammation and bacteria overgrowth occur leading to red bumps and cysts in the skin. Sebaceous or sweat glands of the skin can contribute excessive amounts of sebum into the plugged follicle increasing inflammation. Hormones can also play a role. Most teenagers are affected to some degree. Adults, often, get acne for the first time while others have suffered since the teenage years. Acne is not life-threatening, but it can cause physical disfigurement (scarring) and emotional distress if not treated early.

Treatment for acne varies depending on which of the above factors is causing your acne. This is different for each person. On average, results are visible in six to eight weeks with topical and oral medications.

What options do I have besides oral medications?

Broad Based Light (BBL™) with or without Levulan (Photodynamic Therapy) has now proven to be helpful in the treatment of acne. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels also offer alternative ways to remove persistent and stubborn acne.

How does the BBL™ treatment work?

Sciton BBL™ is a FDA approved treatment that utilizes a blue filter to selectively target the p-acnes bacteria that are partially responsible for acne in the skin.

What is the treatment like?

A thin film of gel is applied to your skin, followed by the BBL treatment. Most patients have minimal discomfort. Treatment sessions last 20-30 minutes.

What should I expect after treatment?

After treatment is completed, some may experience temporary reddening and and minimal swelling of the acne, and surrounding skin for 1-2 days. This is transient and usually associated with minimal to no downtime. Makeup can be applied immediately, if desired.

How many treatments will I need?

To achieve maximum improvement with BBL™, a series of 8 weekly treatments is most effective. Most patients will need periodic touch up treatments ranging from monthly to every two months.
