Introduction

from our medical directors Although we started small, our facility has grown into one of the nation’s top aesthetic, rejuvenation and wellness centers. No other facility in South Florida offers patients the broad array of high quality, result driven services that we do.

Our doctors and staff lecture internationally, teach and perform research on cutting edge technology. jason pozner, md david goldberg, md In fact, you may not know that when you walk through our doors, you are walking into a teaching facility. Physicians visit from around the country, and the world, to learn our techniques, see our practice model and look to us for guidance on the technologies they should be bringing to their own patients. In addition, our practice continues to research new advancements in cosmetic medicine through conducting clinical studies for various aesthetic companies. As a result we remain on the leading edge, having the latest technology and the widest selection of lasers and aesthetic medical equipment in the area. Clearly, our people and technology are differentiators for us, but we go much deeper. The third pillar in our approach is our commitment to quality. To this end, our goal is to provide each patient with an unmatched experience, as they embark on a personal and individualized journey through aesthetic and health transformation. Quality is our number one priority…each and every patient…each and every procedure…. each and every time. People, Products, Performance, and a relentless pursuit of excellence…… That’s the Sanctuary Medical Center difference. We hope you enjoy our newsletter and welcome your feedback on how we can better serve you.

Deep laser resurfacing has the power to improve deep lines and wrinkles, eliminate discoloration and tighten up slack skin by removing the uppermost layers and allowing them be replaced with fresh, new, youngerlooking skin. SMC performs more deep laser resurfacing procedures than any other practice in the country, and scores of surgeons from around the world come here to learn the technique from SMC’s Jason Pozner, MD. He is a renowned expert and national trainer for resurfacing with the Sciton erbium YAG laser. In addition to removing the damaged layers of the skin, this tool also stimulates fibroblasts to form new collagen and elastin. As opposed to fractional resurfacing treatments, the Sciton erbium YAG laser treats 100% of the skin’s surface, resulting in significantly smoother, tighter skin once healing is complete-and an unparalleled improvement in wrinkles, skin texture and skin tone even on the neck, chest and hands as well. Deep laser resurfacing requires about a week of downtime and does not cause hypo-pigmentation like older lasers. For patients with less downtime, we do a MicroLaser Peel or Fractional Laser Resurfacing treatment that gets you right back to your normal activities. These in-office treatments refresh and rejuvenate the skin over a series of treatments for improvement in fine lines, wrinkles and skin tone—without the need to take time off. Schedule a consultation today to see which method of skin resurfacing is ideal for you.

Make your skin act (and look)

younger

Few downtime-free light-based treatments have as a profound effect on the skin as broadband light (BBL), also known as intense pulsed light (IPL). It is ideal for improving the firmness, elasticity and pigmentation of the skin. This treatment sends infrared and invisible light deep into the skin to stimulate the cells to actually act younger. In exciting news, a recent study uncovered evidence that explains how BBL works at the molecular level to deliver these unparalleled outcomes. According to the study published in The Journal of Investigative Dermatology, BBL causes a functional change in the cells that prompts the skin to act younger rather than merely creating a cosmetic change. Though not FDA-approved for altering gene expression or anti-aging, there’s no doubt that BBL treatments deliver dramatically younger-looking skin—and SMC is one of the only practices in the area with this revolutionary technology.

Detox

your body with this 28-day diet

A great transition plan for patients who have previously been on our medical weight loss plans.

If you’re looking to improve energy levels, digestion, joint comfort and your overall wellness, the Xymogen 28-Day Cleanse is a great place to start. With a focus on “functional” foods that provide real health benefits— and avoiding foods that do not—this comprehensive detox diet can give you a new lease on life. The plan includes five to seven small meals a day plus shakes and supplements. It aims to promote a healthy body composition, restore gastrointestinal health and eliminate toxins from the body. So if your New Year’s resolutions include changing the way you eat (and losing weight), call to learn more about the Xymogen 28-Day Cleanse today.

Fight Aging from the inside out You eat well, exercise and try to keep stress to a minimum, but you can do more to feel your best. IV Therapy is a novel way to infuse your body with the nutrients it needs to ward off the free radical damage that compromises your cells, while boosting energy levels, increasing immunity, eliminating toxins, preventing illness and promoting overall well-being. IV Therapy delivers a potent dose of antioxidants like vitamins B, C, and E, as well as glutathione and more, in turn minimizing oxidative stress and maximizing longevity.

Chelation Therapy

gets a boost

Chelation therapy has been used as a successful treatment for coronary disease since the 1950s, but the lack of substantial evidence for the therapy’s benefits has kept it confined mainly to the world of alternative medicine—until now. That all changed recently after the results of a groundbreaking clinical trial sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) was released demonstrating that cardiac patients who undergo chelation therapy have a significantly lower risk of stroke, coronary problems and death. Chelation therapy addresses hardening of the arteries (arthrosclerosis) as well as heart, lung and other disease of the circulatory system by extracting excess heavy metals (such as iron, lead, arsenic, mercury, cadmium and zinc) from the body through the oral or intravenous use of a compound called ethylene diamine tetra acetic acid (EDTA). An overabundance of these metals can lead to varying illnesses and functional diseases. In addition to disease prevention, the benefits of chelation therapy include muscle repair, increased energy, reduced free radicals (which lead to inflammation) and normalized cholesterol, blood pressure and HDL levels. SMC has been an ongoing proponent of chelation therapy and we have extensive experience with the treatment. A thorough consultation, blood work, a review of your lifestyle and other risk factors are necessary to determine if you’re a candidate for this now-proven treatment. Call today to schedule your consultation, and learn more about this approach to cardiac disease treatment.

Do the foods you eat make you sick? Food allergies are one thing, but food sensitivity and intolerance may be making you sick without you even knowing it.

F

ood allergies are one thing, but food sensitivity and intolerance may be making you sick without you even knowing it. If you experience fatigue, headaches, joint pain, unexplained rashes or other vague symptoms that don’t seem to have a cause, the ALCAT test may be for you. This blood test looks at the body’s innate cellular immune system and tests intolerance and sensitivity levels for up to 220 food antigens. This has become one of the most frequent tests performed by Sanctuary Medical Center’s Functional Medicine physician, David Blyweiss, MD— and for good reason. Upon eliminating problematic foods from your diet, you can have more energy while losing weight, lowering cholesterol and decreasing inflammation throughout your body. He has seen the test help many of his patients get well without the use of

pharmaceutical medications. Two cases in particular stand out. The first was a woman, Amy, who was 55 years old, with years of rheumatoid inflammatory arthritis, on multiple medications, and not getting any better. After following the ALCAT food rotation guidelines, the patient had no joint pain, stopped all medication, and lost over 50 pounds, going from a size 12 to a size 4. She now has more energy than she did when she was a young woman and is happier than ever. It has also helped other patients solve skin issues that have been undiagnosed. Another patient had been experiencing a rash of unknown origin for 5 years, not amenable to any treatment including steroids. Two weeks after following his ALCAT food rotation guidelines his rash went away and has not returned in the last two years. In addition to adults suffering from

obesity, diabetes, autoimmune disease and the other symptoms mentioned above, the ALCAT test has proven effective for children david blyweiss, md with attention functional medicine deficit disorder as well. Even more, professional sports teams around the globe are using the ALCAT test to optimize performance and give players and extra edge. If you want an extra edge or relief from headaches, fatigue and other symptoms that don’t have a specific cause, call 1-800-769-0450 to schedule your appointment with Dr. Blyweiss.

Get your hormones back on track! Women and men of all ages suffer from the side effects of aging; you’re run down, tired fatigued, irritable and just not feeling like yourself. For women, it’s PMS, perimenopause and menopause, and for men, this comes in the form of andropause (male menopause). Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), is a solution that can help you feel more like yourself again. A proven solution for hot flashes, mood changes, sleep problems, weight issues, muscle loss, hair loss and lack of sex drive associated with hormonal fluctuations, BHRT is a safe, effective treatment with a 70-year track record—and none of the significant risks associated with synthetic hormone replacement. Derived from yams and soy, the FDA-approved compounds used in BHRT are identical to the hormones that are found naturally in and recognized by our bodies. These compounds are delivered through topical creams and pellets, and regimens are customized to each individual patient based on blood work and a thorough evaluation performed by our anti-aging physicians and physician assistants. Their extensive training and experience with BHRT has improved the lives of thousands of men and women around the world—and you can be one of them!

Jason Pozner, MD

Comprehensive facial rejuvenation

SMAC’s Jason Pozner, MD is a skilled surgeon with experience performing procedures from head to toe, but one of his favorites is facial rejuvenation with a facelift, fat grafting and laser resurfacing. A world-renowned expert who lectures around the globe and hosts doctors who visit the practice to learn his techniques, Dr. Pozner’s expertise is second to none. The aging process is multifacted, and over time, changes affect the skin’s look and texture as well as the underlying facial volume and muscles. The facelifts of yesteryear focused exclusively on the skin and led to an unnaturally tight, pulled appearance. Today’s age-reversing procedures use a combination of techniques to provide more comprehensive rejuvenation.

Dr. Pozner takes the traditional facelift (which addresses excess skin and slack muscles) a step further by incorporating fat grafting to restore the facial volume that naturally diminishes with age. Fat can provide a more dramatic and long-lasting improvement than fillers. The stem cells in the fat actually work to improve the quality of the skin above. As a finishing touch, Dr. Pozner uses laser resurfacing to erase fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, on the brow and beyond—and deliver an overall younger-looking complexion, or as he calls it, “the finishing touch.” Performing this combination of procedures is especially gratifying for Dr. Pozner because it gives him the ability to help patients look younger and better, without looking different. As he likes to say with his signature sense of humor, “I’m in the rejuvenation business, not the witness protection business.”

andrew rosenthal, md rhinoplasty expert

Andrew Rosenthal, MD has a passion for procedures that rebuild and restore both the face and body, He is an expert in breast reconstruction as well as cosmetic surgery. With more than a decade in private practice and stellar academic credentials, he’s a valuable addition to the SMC team. Rhinoplasty is one of the most frequent procedures performed by Dr. Rosenthal—and it’s also among the most difficult in plastic surgery, a challenge Dr. Rosenthal loves. Nasal surgery is more about refinement than restoration, and because the nose is in the center of the face, being meticulous is a must. His ultimate goal is to improve facial harmony through subtle changes that have a dramatic impact on a patient’s appearance, as well as their self-confidence and self esteem. Today’s rhinoplasty is worlds away from the nose jobs of the past. The biggest advance has been the advent of 3D imaging. Dr. Rosenthal uses this innovative tool to communicate with patients and explain his vision, giving patients a “sneak peek” at the potential outcome. And it allows real customization of your result and gives you an ability to share your dreams and desires with your surgeon. In the past, a major issue with rhinoplasty was an over-reduction of the nose. This led to breathing problems and noses which eventually looked "pinched" or "done." Dr. Rosenthal’s strives to create natural looking noses that withstand the test of time. He has also found rhinoplasty to be an effective anti-aging procedure, as reducing cartilage and reinforcing the nose’s support structure can take years off the face and improve breathing. Dr. Rosenthal’s rhinoplasty articles have been published in prestigious medical journals, and he has specific expertise in perfecting ethnic noses. He enjoys performing this procedure because of its complexity, and he explains that it’s a combination of selecting the proper tools to perform many subtle changes that work synergistically to create the final outcome. Beyond the technical, rhinoplasty allows Dr. Rosenthal to tap into his aestheic and creative side in order to transform his vision into a reality—and create the nose a patient should have been born with.

Megan Jack, MD

Liposuction and Cellulaze

Megan Jack, MD came to SMC from Cleveland Clinic in July 2012, bringing a wealth of knowledge about all plastic surgery procedures, but she has a particular interest in body sculpting with liposuction and the revolutionary Cellulaze treatment. With recent hands-on training on her side, she offers a fresh perspective on the latest advances in these areas—and unparalleled results for her patients. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to body sculpting, which is why Dr. Jack uses a variety of liposuction methods to personalize the procedure for each patient. In addition to traditional liposuction (which is best for patients without skin laxity), she has other forms of liposuction at her disposal for those who have had previous surgery in the target areas, need a larger volume of fat removed, or those who need a little skin tightening. These options include laser liposuction and ultrasound-assisted liposuction, which incorporate heat to melt fat, make removal easier and help skin conform to new and improved contours. But perhaps the biggest liposuction advance is the Vaser procedure, which Dr. Jack can use to help enhance muscle definition. Ideal for patients who are in good physical shape, this liposculpture procedure is so precise that it can remove fat from just the edges of particular muscle groups (such as the abs) to create a more chiseled appearance. After stubborn pockets of fat, cellulite is one of women’s biggest beauty complaints, and Dr. Jack is an expert with Cellulaze, a recently FDA-approved procedure that eliminates lumps and bumps for good—with just one treatment. Ideal for those with mild to moderate cellulite, this first-of-its-kind treatment finally offers a long-term solution for an age-old problem. Dr. Jack has extensive experience performing Cellulaze despite its newcomer status, and she is proud to offer this treatment to her patients, either on its own or in conjunction with liposuction. Dr. Jack has an affinity toward these procedures because she understands the challenges that stubborn fat and cellulite pose for women. She also enjoys the artistic aspect of the procedures that lets her create life-sized sculptures. At the end of the day, it’s the ability to change the lives of patients who have worked hard and struggled for years that makes it the most rewarding.

a new weapon in the fight against

Cellulite dramatically improve the appearance of cellulite with this one hour treatment.

sientra

inety percent of women have cellulite, and regardless of how much you diet and exercise, oftentimes these lumps and bumps don’t budge. Cellulaze represents an entirely new way to dramatically improve the orange-peel appearance of cellulite, and SMC is proud to be one of the first practices in the area to offer this procedure. Unlike other procedures that use superficial massage and ongoing treatments to smooth the appearance of cellulite, Cellulaze actually treats the underlying structure of the skin to improve lumps and bumps for the long term—in just one treatment. This laser-assisted procedure is clinically proven to increase the thickness of the skin, and it targets the fibrous bands within the skin that cause the “cottage cheese” appearance. The Cellulaze treatment takes about one to three hours (depending on the size of the areas), and involves a few tiny incisions that allow the doctor to smooth out dimples from beneath the skin with a thin laser fiber. The procedure is performed with local anesthesia. For patients looking to increase their comfort level, IV sedation or general anesthesia is available – this method is preferred when treating larger areas. Patients can resume normal activities in a day or so and strenuous

exercise after about a week. Side effects include minor bruising and discomfort, and results continue to improve over the three to 12 months following treatment. In addition to smoother skin with less dimpling, studies show that Cellulaze increases skin thickness by 25 percent and skin elasticity by 29 percent—up to three years after one treatment. The procedure cost starts at about $3,800 and varies depending on the number and size of areas treated. With Cellulaze, the war against cellulite is finally over!

MENOPAUSE 54

Actual Patient Hair and Makeup Provided By Jackie and Michelle of Donna Pascoe Salon

Josie’s journey to vitality began with her family physician. Her current physician recommended a trip to a psychiatrist, she quickly changed doctors. Her new physician recommended a series of testosterone shots. She reluctantly gave them a whirl, but there was still no relief from her feelings. Josie continued to try anything that could relieve her symptoms. “I used every kind of medication you can think of; pills, patches, natural supplements, you name it, I tried it. “It was so frustrating. I thought this is it. I have no libido. I’m always tired. Where is my life going? I really missed ME.” A friend recommended Josie see Dr. Mitchell Matez. Although skeptical, Josie met with Dr. Matez. She was surprised to learn that Dr. Matez could relieve all of her symptoms. They sat and talked in-depth about her current symptoms and medical history. “We sat and he started asking me all these questions about my medical history. He actually was paying attention and taking notes. Dr. Matez actually took the time to explain why I was feeling the way I was” says Josie.

Menopause is caused by a decrease or cessation of hormone production by the ovaries and other glands in the body. It can be easily reversed by administering exact molecular copies (some call these “Bioidentical”) of the hormones that are deficient, thereby restoring her hormones back to healthy, youthful levels. These hormones, exact duplicates of human hormone, are in stark contrast to the chemically altered and animal derived hormones produced by the pharmaceutical industry and used routinely in mainstream medicine today. After a lengthy discussion pertaining to the risks and benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy, Dr. Matez began Josie’s program by doing a full review of her blood work and history. He explained each blood test result, which none of her doctors had ever done before. Josie chose to begin a program of made to order gels that were rubbed into her forearm twice a day. Two weeks later Dr. Matez followed up with Josie. Her hot flashes were reduced significantly. Dr. Matez assured her that she would soon stop having them completely.

One month later Josie was feeling like herself again. Josie’s follow-up blood panel suggested that the therapy was reversing her menopause. “I was back! My family noticed the difference. At work, people would ask what I had done. I was looking and feeling good! I sometimes have to remind myself that I am 54. Her libido returned in full force. Her hair was thicker, her skin more supple and smoother than ever. The vaginal dryness was gone and her sex life was what it was in her 20s. Six years later, Josie is still feeling and living vibrantly!
