Natural enhancement with Botox®,
fillers and other non-surgical treatments is both art and science.
Achieving an elegant result requires comprehensive understanding of facial anatomy, extensive training and an artistic eye. Using his micro-treatment technique, Dr. Cabin works with every patient to develop a customized treatment that achieves the patient’s goals for lasting correction and prevention. Dr. Cabin has developed a multi-modality approach to patient comfort, using a combination of temperature modulation, vibrational therapy, blunt-tipped cannulas and micro-needles to maximize safety and minimize pain, bruising and swelling.
Patients generally fear expected discomfort in non-surgical procedures. Dr. Cabin believes that a doctor should use every tool available to minimize unnecessary pain. In his practice, Dr. Cabin uses a combination of vibrational therapy, ice compresses, canula and micro-aliquot techniques to ensure patient comfort. As his patient, you’ll quickly notice his thoughtful and gentle technique, leading to a more comfortable – and natural – result.
Botox® directly reduces dynamic wrinkles- those that occur with facial expression and movement. But Botox® is also preventative – by softening muscle movement and thus preventing reinforcement, the “etched-in” wrinkles that occur with aging can be reversed and prevented.
Dr. Cabin employs a micro-aliquot approach to Botox®, using smaller amounts across more targeted areas. This technique leads to the most natural reduction of dynamic wrinkles, along with effective, long-term prevention of etched-in lines.
Botox® can be used to narrow the lower face, creating a more aesthetic “heart-shaped” or “V-shaped” relationship to the cheek. By safely shrinking the masseter muscles – large muscles that add bulk of the jaw – the lower face can be dramatically narrowed. Dr. Cabin is an expert in this procedure, targeting Botox® safely and comfortably deep within this muscle.
Many patients who have a disproportionately wide lower jaw also have enlarged masseter muscles from teeth grinding or clenching, usually while sleeping. This procedure has the added benefit of reducing the pain associated with these unconscious behaviors, frequently referred to as TMJ disorder. See below for more details.
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorder leads to severe headaches radiating from the ears and the side of the head. TMJ pain is related to the repetitive force within the TMJ, generated by the masseter muscles.
The masseter muscles are our primary chewing muscles located just over the angle of the jaw. Whether related to teeth misalignment, teeth grinding or clenching, or arthritis in the joint, the pressure coming from this muscle typically exacerbates and perpetuates this pain.
Targeting Botox® to these muscles can weaken their force, thus alleviating TMJ pain for up to six months. Although dosing varies, there is generally an aesthetically pleasing narrowing of the lower face that benefits the patient.
Specialized Non-Surgical Treatment
Certain cosmetic nasal deformities can be addressed using filler. Using micro-injections of certain hyaluronic acid-based filler, the nose can be dramatically reshaped in minutes, leading to long lasting harmony without surgery.
As the nose is central to a person’s appearance, Dr. Cabin believes in a full rhinoplasty consultation – with 3D photo simulation – before any non-surgical rhinoplasty. This facilitates clear communication of cosmetic goals, allowing Dr. Cabin to tailor the treatment to a specific patient’s request.
A “liquid facelift” refers to the comprehensive rejuvenation of the face with multiple injections. Although very different from a surgical facelift, significant rejuvenation and anti-aging can be achieved using a variety of fillers targeted to specific areas throughout the face.
In a non-surgical consultation, Dr. Cabin will review the entirety of a patient’s face to provide a comprehensive plan for rejuvenation. If involving multiple locations and injectables, the patient is welcome to stagger treatments across several visits, or perform all treatments at once.
Kybella® is an injectable, in-office treatment that melts fat. FDA-approved for use in the submental area (“double-chin”), Kybella® works by permanently destroying fat cells, so that fat can no longer accumulate.
Dr. Cabin is an expert Kybella® injector, treating both the “double-chin”, as well as other areas throughout the body with stubborn fat.
As we age, the skin thins, loses elasticity, and becomes progressively damaged by UV rays from the sun. There are many treatments branded as “skin resurfacing” that offer to turn back the clock, but Dr. Cabin believes only in the best: the Dot Deka CO2 laser. This fractionated laser treatment powerfully resurfaces the skin, reversing years of damage, softening/eliminating wrinkles and improving pigmentation issues. This laser can be performed on its own, or as a supplemental treatment to surgical facial rejuvenation, such as facelift.
Because Dr. Cabin believes in maximizing patient results, all CO2 laser patients are placed on a customized skin care protocol before and after treatment. This ensures optimal results and minimizes risks associated with the laser treatment.
Microneedling with Platelet-Rick Plasma (PRP) combines a multi-pronged, vibrating needle pen with a patient’s own blood plasma (PRP) to rejuvenate the facial skin, softening fine lines and wrinkles, improving acne scarring and lightening pigmentation. This in-office procedure is quick, painless and leads to lasting skin improvements.
Dr. Cabin exclusively uses the best-in-class réjuvapen Micropigmentation System™ along with Eclipse PRP™ High Concentration PRP collection system to provide superior microneedling results.
Dr. Cabin also ends every microneedling treatment with an additional layer of PRP, followed by the ZO® Ossential Skin Brightening mask. This process maximizes procedural results and minimize redness, flaking and downtime.
Dr. Cabin is a certified expert in performing the best-in-class, in-office ZO® skin peels.
The Stimulator Peel™ is the quickest, zero-downtime skin rejuvenation peel. Made up of a combination of lactic, citric and salicylic acid plus potent concentrations of other active ingredients, the Stimulator Peel™ exfoliates the skin, while stimulating the growth of collagen and elastin. A highly effective treatment for the many signs of skin aging, this peel is ideal for treating Melasma, sun damage, fine lines, uneven texture, large pores, dull skin, and acne. Suitable for any skin type or color.
For a more powerful treatment, the 3-Step Peel™ is an innovative, in-office treatment peel followed by an at-home treatment to combat the signs of aging and skin discoloration. Like a traditional chemical peel, this peel can leave the skin red and flaking, but leads to long-lasting rejuvenation.
For reasons still mostly unknown, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections around scalp hair follicles fortify active follicles while stimulating inactive follicles to grow new hair. For both men and women looking for hair restoration and health, PRP injections are a safe and easy way to achieve natural results.
Dr. Cabin performs scalp PRP injections using the best-in-class Purespin PRP® system, which produces super-concentrated, high volume PRP with a patient’s own blood.
Using a series of micro-needle injections throughout the hair-deficient areas of the scalp, Dr. Cabin precisely places PRP into the follicular layer. Performed three times over three months, this advanced protocol results in optimal and maximized permanent hair growth, leading a healthier, more robust head of hair.
Scars resulting from previous surgery or trauma can be unsightly and even painful. Using a combination of injectable therapies, including Kenalog, 5-fluorouracil and micro-Botox®, Dr. Cabin can reduce the visibility and discomfort of scars, no matter the age.
Some scars may also qualify for a surgical revision (LINK to Scar Revision), possibly in combination with injection therapy.
