Learn About Healthy Skin Care and Homeopathic Healing Solutions
At the New York Center for Facial Plastic and Laser Surgery we use a holistic approach to skin health.
Your skin is your body’s largest organ and performs many functions. Your skin also tells a story about your age and health. Doctor Jacono believes in the use of homeopathy, as well as prescriptive skin care systems to restore and maintain skin health. These products treat your skin from the inside out. We use topical agents that work synergistically with proper nutrition to regulate skin cells’ functions.
Homeopathy – J PAK Systems TM
If you will be having surgery, Doctor Jacono will alter your nutritional regimen as some vitamins can cause excess bleeding during surgery. Doctor Jacono also employs homeopathic therapy to assist his patients in recovering from bruising and swelling after surgery, using a variety of natural herbal compounds taken orally. Medical experts have treated patients with homeopathic remedies for centuries. Today, scientific studies indicate that homeopathic remedies like Arnica Montana and dietary supplements like Bromelain and Hyaluronic Acid can help minimize swelling and bruising and speed healing after surgery. After prescribing these well documented and beneficial homeopathic remedies to his surgical patients for years, Doctor Jacono has created J PAK SystemsTM instantly eliminating the daunting task of gathering multiple bottles in the correct doses and making it easy to follow his detailed regimen. There are two formulas available: Designed for injectable treatments, No. 1 contains a five-day supply of Arnica Montana and Bromelain. The 14-day No. 2 system was designed with post-surgical needs in mind, and it contains Arnica Montana and Bromelain along with hyaluronic acid, glucosamine compounds, vitamin C and zinc.

The results of the VISIA Complexion Analysis will provide the framework for creating a customized facial rejuvenation program that is designed to achieve optimal improvement in skin color and texture.
SKIN CARE PRODUCTS
Protect your investment. The proper maintenance of your skin after surgery or laser procedures is another important part of the process. Quality skin care and sun protection will help maximize the benefits from your surgery or laser treatment.
Doctor Jacono has personally handpicked two skin product lines that correct the damage to the surface of the skin, balance pigmentation, restore skin tone, and enhance production of collagen and elastin. Both of these systems can only be accessed by physicians.
The Obagi Nu-Derm System incorporates tretinoin (Retin A) with hydroquinone, cleansers, toners, and creams to be applied daily. This will diminish the appearance of fine lines, increase smoothness, decrease pore size, reduce age spots and hyperpigmentation, correct blemishes, and improve skin elasticity. Through the use of tretinoin, a constant gentle exfoliation occurs and the thickness of the dermis increase providing increased tone and a gentle warm glow to the skin. Doctor Jacono will prescribe an Obagi system designed specifically for your skin type and color.
SkinCeuticals offers a complete line of skincare for all types of skin with an emphasis on anti-oxidant therapy, anti-aging and sun protection. From cleansers, to vitamin treatments and sunscreens, Doctor Jacono will recommend the SkinCeuticals products that are best for your skin.
For a gentler touch, we also offer Kimberly Sayer of London; an award winning eco-conscious, chemical-free, natural and organic product line. Kimberly Sayer of London offers cleaners, toners, moisturizers, sunblocks, anti-aging products, scrubs and more. The Kimberly Sayer of London line does not test on animals or contain animal products.
Keeping your skin in proper working order requires nutritional balance either through proper hydration, diet, or vitamin supplementation. Vitamin C helps the body create collagen, Vitamin A is required by skin cells for maintenance and repair, and Vitamin E reduces scarring in some wounds. These vitamins are also antioxidants that scavenge mutant cells in the body. Doctor Jacono will help counsel you about your specific nutritional needs when creating your skin care regimen.
