Volbella & Volift
the new face of fillers
Over time skin becomes thin and slackens as facial volume and elasticity are gradually lost. Blame it on a combination of sun exposure, genetics, and lifestyle choices but the aging process is inevitable. Those deep, stubborn lines that seem to be a constant annoyance staring you in the mirror morning and night, are the reason Juvederm strives to continually enhance the arena of dermal fillers.
Everyone knows about Voluma the widely acclaimed, top of the line, does not get any better then this product from Juvederm. Well there are sister products as well! Voluma is known for enhancing and contouring the cheek area on the face, but now there is Volbella with the lowest concentration of HA so it can be used best in the lips and thin skin areas around the face, and then the newest addition to the Juvederm HA based fillers is Volift, not quite as concentrated as Voluma, so it is best used for static wrinkles including nasolabial folds and marionette lines.

The holiday season with all its parties, family gatherings, and New Year’s resolutions can be stressful for men and women of all ages because this is typically a special time when they want to look and feel their best despite all the stress frequently associated with holiday events.
Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. and his staff at The Paragon Plastic Surgery and Medspa can help each individual man or woman look and feel their best for all holiday events coming up.  Dr. Bishara takes the time to cultivate individual relationships with his patients in order to assure that they receive their desired look.  He uses the term “patient” because he says, “I feel the term patient is a more personal and appropriate term because I am working with people in personal ways.”
In his new state-of-the art facility completed in 2014, he offers the full gamut of cosmetic procedures such as robotic hair restoration, breast augmentation, tummy tuck and a variety of laser procedures. The calming music and soothing décor of his new facility create an atmosphere to ease the nerves of any anxious patient.  “Sometimes patients come in extremely nervous, and my goal is to provide a calming, relaxing environment to reduce their anticipated anxiety,” he said.  Additionally, Dr. Bishara takes the time to listen, discuss and explain all treatment options before outlining an appropriate treatment plan.
In his Paragon office in Mansfield, Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. offers “Wrinkle-Free Wednesday.”  Patients can come in for Botox and Xeomin treatments at discounted rates.  It’s easy to see why this is the most popular and busiest day of the week for Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. and his staff.  He treats hundreds of patients seeking these non-invasive, preventive procedures from 8am until 8pm.  “We go through enough Botox to remove every single wrinkle from an elephant’s skin,” he grinned, “but my goal is for them to still look like themselves,” he explained.
Also, as an AAAHC certified facility and dual trained surgeon, he can provide acute care as well as cosmetic surgical services.  His goal is to make sure that every patient’s needs are satisfactorily and effectively met.  In the spirit of giving this holiday season, Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. plans to open a combined clinic that will offer reduced rates for general surgical procedures including lumpectomy, advanced laparoscopic hernia and gallbladder procedures, and varicose vein ablation.
“The current medical system in this country is not sustainable.  Hospitals and surgery centers charging $11,000 for a 15-minute procedure is simply not feasible when it could be offered at a more reasonable price,” he said.  These large centers are sometimes bound to hold pricing high due their contracted rates with insurance companies.  As a responsible physician, he wants to provide clinical services that promote and foster a medical system that is sustainable and affordable.  That is why he has announced the addition of four advanced laparoscopic surgeons to the staff at the Paragon Surgery Center in Mansfield.  Surgical procedures are now being offered to all patients state-wide for a cash price that is often less than some deductible plans.  Although this system is intended to be cash based, some patients will still be able to submit the charges for reimbursement through their out of network benefits.
As his services continue to grow and expand, Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. has two other locations for the convenience of his patients; Southlake and North Park.
As the holiday season and the new year approach, let Dr. Bishara and his staff help you look and feel your best.  Call one of his three convenient locations at 817-473-2120 or email [email protected] to make an appointment and ensure that you enjoy the holidays knowing that you truly look your best!

RADIESSE® filler reduces moderate to severe wrinkles, folds and creases around the nose and mouth by stimulating the natural production of collagen in the skin.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus is used to treat deep and more severe wrinkles and folds. Provide results that last up to one year.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC filler instantly adds volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore and contour a more youthful profile for up to 2 years.

FACIAL RESURFACING LASER 360 TECHNOLOGY:

AFT Intense Pulsed Light evens out skin color, reduces tiny broken blood vessels and other color irregularities. Near-Infrared Light helps firm up any loose skin so you regain a youthful contoured appearance. Lastly, the precise laser creates thousands of microscopic perforations which stimulates new collagen to produce.

We’ve been telling you about the much anticipated arrival of Juvéderm Voluma™ XC for quite some time and we just wanted to remind you that we have it available in our office. The first filler specifically developed for the cheek area, Juvéderm Voluma™ XC, is approved by the FDA to correct volume loss in the cheek area. This is the first hyaluronic acid filler to be approved by the FDA for this purpose.
When people age, the cheek area loses volume, causing the cheeks to flatten out and the skin to droop and sag.
Different than other injectables that are currently on the market, Voluma is made with the thickest hyaluronic acid to date and allows for the gel to flow more easily and consistently. It also contains a small amount of lidocaine which helps to numb the treatment area during the injection procedure.
When a hyaluronic acid filler is injected into areas that show signs of aging, water is drawn to the area and binds to the molecules of the filler to fill in the lines and wrinkles by literally plumping them up with moisture. In the case of Voluma XC, the gel is injected into the cheek area to gently lift the skin, eliminating the apperance of hollow cheeks.
Patients are able to see instant correction of volume loss in the cheek area, which resulted in a more youthful appearance overall.

Are you sick of deep lines on your face and wish you could get a quick fix for the signs of aging around your mouth and eyes? You may think that Botox is your only option, but in fact there are other injectable cosmetics that plastic surgeons, such as Dr. Mar Bishara, use to treat some lines on the face. That’s why it’s important for individuals to understand the difference between injectables like Botox and facial fillers, like Juvederm.

What Botox does:
Botox and Xeomin are injectable medicines used to treat “active” facial lines, meaning those that have only recently formed. The medicine in injected into facial areas with wrinkles. Botox won’t result in a loss of the ability to show emotions on the face – the intention is to make subtle changes that will stop lines from forming while promoting a natural appearance.
What fillers do:
Dermal fillers are used to treat “firmly established wrinkles,” reports ASAPS. In addition to treating deep wrinkles, these cosmetics can alter the appearance of soft tissue – for example, they may be injected into the lips to make one’s pout appear fuller.  Dr. Bishara will be able to tell which one is best for your personal desires.
Having a thorough consultation with us, in our Mansfield or Southlake location, before you agree to an injection can help you pick the best option. Dr. Bishara’s main focus is to help patients restore or achieve their ideal appearance in order to feel confident about the way they look.  Please call our office at (817) 473-2120 to schedule a consult and see whether Botox or fillers are right for you.
