This young patient in her 20s had a significant #reduction in #submental #fat after 3 sessions with #kybella injections. This allowed her to restore better definition to her face and jawline.

Remembering my dear #mentor and #friend, Dr. Richard E. Fitzpatrick, well-renowned for his pioneering of many cosmetic dermatologic procedures, including #Laser #Skin #Resurfacing. But his greatest legacy truly was setting an example for us to follow of the virtues of a good physician: medical curiosity, compassion and humbleness.
(With my friends and colleagues, #CoolSculpting Specialists Carla Homez and Maria Ferrer.) #ASLMS 2014

#Melasma (darker skin patches on the face) can be seen in women during and after #pregnancy, as well as while taking oral birth control pills. While there is no absolute cure for melasma, it can improve significantly with the use of specialized skin brightening creams.

This is a big concern for many women. very nice resukts.

#Acne is one of the most common #Skin conditions worldwide. #Pore #Occlusion and #Plugging by excess skin oils and make-up can trigger #AcneFlares and lead to pustules, cysts and, eventually, #Scars. That is why the single most important step in the #Treatment AND #Prevention of #Acne is proper and regular #Face #Washing, 2 to 3 times a day.

#Subcission followed by #fillers can offer a significant improvement in the appearance of #acne #scars.

Very nice results!

#Earlobe #Rejuvenation can be achieved with the conservative and balanced injection of #HyaluronicAcid #DermalFillers in the various planes of volume loss, with care not to over-inject and to maintain the anatomic shape of the lobe. Pictures are before and immediately after the procedure.

#LOVE educating our patients on all modalities for #HairReduction and #HairRemoval: from home #Depilation devices and creams, to safe and effective medical grade #Light sources and #Laser devices.

The NeoGraft system for Hair Transplantation can facilitate a high success rate and longer lasting results. Both men and women can undergo this procedure successfully.

Fractional Microneedle Radiofrequency Treatment (Profound, previously known as Evolastin) is a non-surgical procedure that can provide significant improvement in skin tone and tightening, with noticeable, long lasting results.

A 1-minute Botox treatment requiring only 6 units, can lead to softening of the Gummy Smile and increased confidence in patients who are bothered by this appearance.

Gorgeous results, Dr. B!!

MELANOMA is the leading cause of CANCER DEATH in young adults ages 25 to 29 in the U.S. TANNING BOOTHS can increase your risk of developing melanoma by several-fold. There is no regulation for tanning devices and booths in most states. So we as Dermatologists encourage the public to research this topic further and to seriously consider our recommendation to stop the use of tanning booths. It could save lives!

Proper hand washing is of vital importance, especially in times of a pandemic. Don't forget to protect your hands by applying abundant amounts of a moisturizer containing CERAMIDES and/or PETROLATUM every single night. You can put on thin cotton gloves immediately after for best results. Your hands will not only be HYDRATED & HEALTHY, but will stay looking YOUNG!

Single Treatment with CoolSculpting can achieve significant fat reduction in the submental area, also known as double-chin.
CoolSculpting treatment is non-invasive, and there is minimal to no downtime.

Eight years ago we created the first CoolSculpting marketing campaign right in Miami. This was our team's video/photo shoot in MidTown. We were blessed to have the finest and most caring team, and we still do! Now, 8 years later, we are awaiting many great 'new developments' from the makers of CoolSculpting! Can hardly wait! Stay tuned!!

I have worked with Dr. Bowes for over 14 years. She has always been very responsive, helpful and knowledgeable. Patients are impressed by her confidence and compassion. If I had to send my family members to a dermatologist, she would be the one!
