LA JOLLA, CA, January 21, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Nasrin Mani, M.D., well-known laser surgeon and cosmetic physician in La Jolla, received notification of her selection as Health Hero for 2011 by the American Melanoma Foundation. Honorees are recognized for the contributions they have made to the local health industry through their community activism.
As part of the United Way's workplace funding partner, the American Melanoma Foundation serves the San Diego public in the prevention and treatment of melanoma
Dr. Mani is a very active community supporter both in health and the arts. She is the medical director of La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic, one of the most active laser and cosmetic procedure practices
in the area.
As a laser surgeon and cosmetic practitioner, Dr. Mani's roles include aesthetic as well as the medical treatment of the skin. Recent developments in laser technology have brought into focus the ability of lasers to target and greatly resolve the issues of Actinic Keratosis - often referred to as pre-cancers
Helping patient become more aware of their skin conditions and potential skin health issues is a focal point of the practice. "Our patients for the most part have lived in a sunny location their entire lives,"
Dr. Mani pointed out. "This constant exposure to UV light increases the risk of skin cancers or abnormal skin growths. Being able to resolve these issues prior to their becoming threatening is a key to both continued skin health and appearance. We're excited to have the technology that can treat the skin effectively and quickly with no risk of scarring and a very minimum level of discomfort."
The laser technology, referred to as Fraxel Dual, is FDA approved for pigmentation reduction and the treatment of Actinic Keratosis
Dr. Mani's laser clinic is also the busiest Sculptra clinic in San Diego. Dr. Mani personally injects all Sculptra patients. With Sculptra's bio-compatibility, there is no pre-testing and this bio-compatibility extends to its use with all other fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse and even Artefill.
"Sculptra is by far the most exciting anti-aging treatment we've seen!"
exclaims Dr. Mani. "We've never had a product with the power to stimulate collagen production the way Sculptra can. It's an amazing bio-stimulant which leaves you with new collagen levels that restore youthful volume. Fuller cheeks, more contoured jaw lines, temple volume replacement to reverse the aging "pyramid" affect...it's truly a one-of-a-kind action that slowly and naturally rebuilds the youth right back into your face. My patients, and I, love what Sculptra has been able to achieve."
Nasrin Mani, M.D., is the executive medical director of La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic located in La Jolla, California
