Over the years cosmetic procedures have come a long way. With today’s modern technology many cosmetic procedures are fast, painless and results are long-lasting. This falls especially true when it comes to facial treatments and non-surgical treatments. New York’s most experienced cosmetic specialist, Dr. Ammar Mahmoud at BYou Laser Clinic in Brooklyn shared his knowledge during an interview regarding some of the most popular cosmetic procedures for 2021. Dr.Ammar Mahmoun specializes in regenerative cosmetic procedures and has a vast knowledge of the industry.

All of these procedures help make patients look and feel their absolute best while receiving safe, secure and comfortable care in the hands of BYOU Laser Clinic professional staff members.
These cosmetic procedures are popular because they are safe, effective and non-invasive procedures. There is no downtime and patients can carry on with normal activities after procedures. All of these popular cosmetic procedures can help with repairing skin issues that come along with ageing. Many patients want to maintain a youthful appearance for as long as they can, luckily with the help of BYOU Laser clinic, this is possible.
Cosmetic procedures may not be medically necessary however, for many patients they may be mentally necessary. Improvements in one’s appearance can greatly aid in their mental health.
Botox injections are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the United States. Botox injections are used as an anti-ageing treatment to reduce facial wrinkles and lines. Botox injections are a safe, non-surgical solution to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. Botox is a neurotoxin injection that is administered to block nerve signals to certain muscles in the treated area.
When these signals are blocked, the muscles no longer contract which results in diminishing wrinkles and fine lines, creating a smoother appearance to the skin. There are very few side effects. Some Botox results can be noticed as early as 3 to 4 days but the full effects can be seen within 1 to 2 weeks. Results may last 3 to 4 months. Repeat treatments are required to maintain desired results.
Botox zones for treatment include:
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines/glabella lines (between eyebrows)
- Eyebrows (droopy eyelids)
- Top of the nose (bunny lines)
- Around the eyes (crow’s feet)
- Lipstick lines
- Jawline and neck
Botox injections are fast, easy, non-invasive solutions to help correct and restore facial features and skin without having to undergo surgery.
During our aging process, lips begin to lose volume causing them to look thin. Fortunately for those who desire fuller lips, FDA-approved dermal fillers can be used to provide astonishing results. When lip fillers are used, the results are immediate and the patient will have fuller, more voluptuous lips. Lip fillers are not solely performed to aid with the aging process, individuals who naturally have thin lips can opt for dermal fillers to enhance the volume of their lips. Lip fillers are injected into the lips and around the mouth.
Lip injections typically last around 6 months, further injections would be required to maintain your desired look.
Laser Hair Removal
At BYou Laser Hair Removal in Brooklyn, hair removal is customized and designed to treat all hair and skin types. Laser hair removal services are available for both men and women. Lasers work by using beams of light to target a pigment called melanin in individual hairs. The heat from the laser destroys hair follicles to prevent them from growing back.
When the hair follicles are destroyed the hair is permanently removed. Targeting individual hairs for removal through laser hair removal treatments can take over 2 to 3 months of regular treatments. Laser hair removal can treat any area of the face and body. The most common treatment zones are as follows:
Female Treatment Zones
- Face – upper lip, chin, cheeks and full face
- Upper legs
- Lower legs
- Bikini line
Male Treatment Zones
CoolSculpting is a cosmetic procedure to reduce stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. Diet and exercise can reduce the size of fat cells but cannot destroy fat cells. Body CoolSculpting is not a method of weight loss, it is a method of permanently reducing stubborn subcutaneous fat located just beneath the surface of the skin
CoolSculpting involves safe, controlled cooling delivery to targeted fat cells which freeze, crystalize and then die. The body excretes these permanently destroyed fat cells through the body’s natural waste elimination process. CoolSculpting body contouring can be effective in many areas of the body. The most popular zones for CoolSculpting are:
- Double Chin
- Upper arms
- Under the buttocks
For lasting results of CoolSculpting treatments, patients should maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating healthily and exercising regularly. Neglecting to do this could result in new fat cells forming in treated areas.
To improve the appearance and feel of skin on the face, neck and hands a chemical peel is a great solution. When a chemical peel is applied to the skin it exfoliates the skin and the dead skin peels off. Following a chemical peel treatment, the skin feels smoother, softer and less wrinkled. Chemical peel treatments are used to solve a variety of skin problems such as:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Acne scars and blemishes
- Uneven skin tone
- Sun damage
Chemical peels are available in three types:
- Light – treats the outermost layer of the skin
- Medium – treats the outer and middle layer of skin
- Deep – fully treats the middle layer of the skin
At BYOU laser treatment clinic in Brooklyn highly experienced and trained aestheticians will meet with you to discuss the best chemical peel treatment plan for you that will benefit you most.
