Ultherapy is a new type of non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone and tighten loose skin on the brow, neck, and under the chin. The only FDA-approved procedure to lift skin on these hard-to treat areas, Ultherapy uses the safe, time tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin. Contact us for this new procedure.

What’s new in aesthetic medicine? The new trend is to look younger but “natural.” People are foregoing surgery and turning to fillers and Botox to optimize their results and stay “naturally” young looking. The newest addition is Juvederm Voluma, which gives very natural soft volume to the face. It can be used in combination with Botox and other fillers to achieve amazing results. This procedure is a “true non-surgical face lift.”

Egg freezing technology allows fertility preservation for women undergoing cancer therapy or for women who are not ready to have children. In the past five years, we have refined the technology of freezing eggs, allowing preservation of fertility potential indefinitely. Frozen/thawed eggs have been shown to have the same potential to achieve a live birth as fresh eggs. Women 33-37, planning to have children, who anticipate delay in starting their family, should give consideration to egg freezing.

Dr. Harkaway, a practicing dermatologist for 20 years, has seen the cosmetic side of her field evolve from modest beginnings to the exciting advances of today. Lasers can now target specific areas rather than the entire face; another process uses radio frequencies to heat under the skin and tighten the collagen, with minimal damage to the skin. It’s exciting because there are so many new procedures. There’s absolutely been a trend toward trying to find procedures that have as little downtime as possible. Fortunately, we’re able to deliver it in most instances.

The Tibion Bionic Leg, an advanced biomechanical device, helps patients regain function via repetitive movements associated with walking, sitting, standing and climbing stairs, improving balance, gait and stability. It contains pressure-sensors to detect and amplify movements, as well as an on-board computer to interpret those movements, and motors to assist with walking, sitting or standing. It’s not a prosthetic, or intended for long-term use. It’s simply strapped to the patient’s leg over clothing and removed after therapy. Patients at Marlton Rehab who have been treated with the Tibion Bionic Leg have experienced improved outcomes.

Human oocyte cryopreservation (egg freezing) is no longer considered experimental by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine. This state-of-the-art reproductive technology involves harvesting a woman’s eggs, freezing the eggs and storing them until a pregnancy is desired. It offers a fertility preservation option for women seeking to delay childbearing for medical or personal reasons. Pregnancy rates and outcomes are comparable to those when using fresh eggs.
