Dr. Jegasothy specializes in Cosmetic Dermatology and is Associate Professor of Dermatology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
“While my double Ivy League education lets you know I am intelligent, I feel that I have become even more accomplished in my field of cosmetic dermatology because, as a symphony musician constantly perfects their craft, so have I constantly improved my injecting skills. I believe that my technical skills are as good as they are because my mother and grandmother were master seamstresses, and they taught me the precision and fine motor skills required for intricate needlepoint, and therefore skin injections, since I was 5 years old.”
Many of the savvy and trendy people who live year-round in Miami have visited many of the well-known aesthetic doctors and will attest that “Dr. J has the best hand when injecting Botox Cosmetic® and dermal fillers such as Juvederm®". Just ask around!
A light injecting hand which rarely causes bruising and injects medicine precisely, and only where it is needed, is a product of Dr. J’s childhood training (see quote). This precision lowers the amount of product needed per treatment, therefore perpetuating the more “natural look” for which Dr. Jegasothy is famous.
Aesthetic laser treatments are now considered as crucial as injectables in enhancing and preserving a natural and "ageless" look for the face and body. The best laser results, with minimal recovery time, are best accomplished by a board-certified aesthetic dermatologist, like Dr. Jegasothy, whose training encompasses EVERY aspect of skin cellular function and healing. Dr. Jegasothy has this educational background and ongoing laboratory research interest, so she can fine-tune laser settings during each treatment - which is ultimately the key to safe and effective laser treatments in all skin types.
Since Dr. Jegasothy began her career in the late 1990s/early 2000s, when Botox Cosmetic® and fillers were first approved in the US, she has been "cutting-edge" in her specialty, and is considered a Key Opinion Leader in Aesthetic Medicine. Her patients appreciate that she counsels them on their best current options, with respect to their age and previous treatments.
As soon as you see an “etched” wrinkle based on a particular frequent facial expression, consider light doses of Botox Cosmetic®, which can prevent these wrinkles from truly forming indefinitely. Common areas include the “crow’s feet” on the sides of the eyes, horizontal lines on the forehead caused by involuntary brow lifting, and the “11’s” between the brows caused by involuntary frowning or squinting, even during sleep.
Young women also see Dr. Jegasothy because she can perform a perfect filler lip or cheek enhancement, based on your individual facial structure and the “look” you want to achieve. Whether it’s a perfect eyebrow arch or nasal bridge/jaw line shaping, Dr. Jegasothy believes that Botox Cosmetic® and fillers are great for beauty enhancement, not just anti-aging!
It is likely that the perfection you achieved in the past with Botox Cosmetic® or fillers alone is not enough. In the past, aesthetic doctors could only inject increasing amounts of both and “hope for the best.” As you and forward-thinking cosmetic dermatologist like Dr. Jegasothy realized 5-8 years ago, increasing injectables only made reality TV stars look fake, overdone, weird, different, and definitely not younger!
The current treatment for areas not completely wrinkle-free from Botox Cosmetic® and fillers is tightening/smoothening loose skin with Fraxel® (especially great on the eyelids) and radiofrequency lasers such as Viora®.
This is also the time to treat loose skin on the neck, chest, elbows, and knees with Viora® radiofrequency laser, plasma injections, or Ulthera®/Ultherapy® before it’s too late! Ask us which is best for you in any area that bothers you cosmetically.
Many of you were raised in the “face lift era” and believe that results less noticeable than surgery are not enough. Dr. Jegasothy agrees; non-invasive procedures don’t deliver drastic results like surgery, but they also don’t make you look like a different person either.
If you are post face/neck lift and want a “refresher” that won’t change your intrinsic features, then consider Ulthera®/Ultherapy® ultrasound laser, which currently delivers 50% of surgical face/neck lift results with no recovery time and only ice for anesthesia.
