Dr. Chernoff has developed and trademarked customized treatments that allow patients to look their best naturally.  YOUR NATURAL BEST® are unique and individualized treatment combinations developed by Dr. Chernoff and designed to enhance his patient’s natural features.  “The combination therapy creates balance, symmetry, and an overall picture of excellent health.   It is unique and will mean something different for every person.” says Dr. Chernoff  

Achieving “Your Natural Best” 

When Dr. Chernoff or his staff meets with a patient for the first time, most often, the patients’ main goal is to improve their skin and overall appearance.  This is not a surprise since our skin and our body size is a direct reflection of our overall health and vitality.   

Professional Skin Care 
Dr. Chernoff has researched, developed and perfected a customized, professional, vitamin and antioxidant skincare line rich in innovative ingredients that improve skin.  “We prescribe our skincare line in conjunction with our customized medically supervised facial and aesthetics services that help out patients achieve bright, smooth, and healthy complexions.” says Dr. Chernoff

Advanced and New Injectable Treatments 
Dr. Chernoff has mastered the art of meticulous injection techniques.  He uses new and combination treatments to smooth lines around the mouth, eyes, and restore lost volume to cheeks and lips. 

New volumizing dermal fillers (Juvederm Voluma) add long-lasting volume and actually restore bulk to the mid-face.  Some patients experience a non-surgical facelift while smoothing and softening facial lines and wrinkles.   Other new injectable treatments such as newly FDA-approved Kybella, removes stubborn fat under the chin creating beautiful sculpted necklines without surgery.   Combining these advanced new injectables provides patients with results that have not been possible in the past. 

Treatments like Botox soften vertical and horizontal forehead lines as well as crow’s feet around the eyes.  Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero, Radiesse, and Sculptra, are excellent options to plump lips, smooth folds, and fine line, and add volume in areas of fatty loss.  

Additionally, Dr. Chernoff offers long-lasting and natural options like Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), cellular therapy and autologous fat injections to help patents improve scars, lines, wrinkles, overall tone and quality, hair loss, and vaginal rejuvenation.   These treatments can be used alone or combined with laser or surgical treatments. 


New Laser Options Improve Aging Skin 
Many new in-office options exist that are effective, safe, and have little or no downtime.   Treatments combine laser technology, radio frequency, and ultrasound to regenerate collagen, improve skin tone, fade sunspots, and improve the overall quality of skin.  Fractionated delivery systems ensure minimal downtime and are one of the most effective in-office laser treatments available.  The laser penetrates the outer layer of the skin and seals off the treated area boosting collagen production.  The treatment is an excellent treatment for improving skin tone, reducing acne scars, active acne, fine lines, age spots, sun damage, and pore size. 

Advanced Combination Therapy
At some point, gravitational changes define when surgery is the only way to accomplish rejuvenation goals.  When the skin and muscles on your face or body are sagging beyond what can be corrected non-surgically, Dr. Chernoff will use the most state of the art surgical options to restore youth to skin and muscles.  Surgical treatments are often followed up with advanced laser and injectable treatments to further refine skin and enhance the quality and skin tone.   The combinations, timing, and treatments are unique and customized for each individual to provide optimal and natural results.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) For Skin Rejuvenation

Research demonstrates that our own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has the power to heal and regenerate tissue in all areas of our body.  PRP treatment uses your own platelets, rich in your own growth factors, to generate new collagen and blood supply.  The treatment helps to repair and regenerate damaged skin and reverse the signs of aging. 

How does PRP treatment rejuvenate skin?

Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells.  When Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is properly injected into specific areas of the skin, it promotes your own collagen growth, regenerates tissue, and naturally improves skin tone and texture. Studies document that PRP grows new collagen when injected into the skin, and new studies show that PRP can soften sun damage and other aging skin issues. 

Is PRP safe for cosmetic use?

Yes, PRP has been safely and effectively used for cosmetic treatments.  PRP has been used in orthopedic medicine, dentistry, and reconstructive surgery for over 30 years.   Now PRP’s uses are expanding, for use in accelerating wound healing, as well as for cosmetic face and hand rejuvenation. 

Can PRP injections be performed with other treatments and dermal fillers?

Yes, PRP can be combined with almost every treatment or procedure to enhance results. Most of Dr. Chernoff’s patients combine PRP injections with surgical procedures (facelifts), injectables, laser treatments, and facials.   Some patients choose PRP as a stand-alone treatment to improve the overall quality, tightness, and texture of their skin.

 How much improvement can I expect from PRP and how long will it last?

Since PRP comes from your own body the results vary for each person.  Our patients have noticeable improvement in the tone, texture, and overall quality of their skin.  They have been impressed with the results.  Some of Dr. Chernoff’s patients have experienced improved volume in their hands and faces, as well as a shorter recovery from facial surgery procedures. Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time. One to three treatment sessions are generally recommended, spaced 1-2 months apart, to achieve the best outcome. 

What to expect during and after the PRP procedure?

A small amount of blood will be drawn from you and the PRP is prepared. The injections take a few moments, and are only mildly uncomfortable. The procedure is quick, relatively painless, and requires no post procedure care or time off from daily events. Mild swelling, redness, or bruising fades within 1-3 days. 

PRP therapy is another way Dr. Chernoff uses research and advanced techniques to give patients natural and lasting results.  PRP is one of many treatments we use for our trademarked procedure: YOUR NATURAL BEST®, which are unique and individualized treatment combinations exclusively developed by Dr. Chernoff to enhance his patient’s natural features. The combination therapy creates balance, symmetry, and an overall picture of excellent health.
