"Taking a moment to be present in my body and showing gratitude for it’s strength. 
 The journey this past year back to loving my body has been a hard one but I’m SO thankful for all it’s done for me. You guys know I had diastasis recti from being pregnant that really affected my confidence but doing things like yoga, pilates and my  “work outs” that have gotten me back to feeling myself. I feel healthy and have found ways to strengthen my body that don’t drain me. That’s what it’s all about."

No matter where you need it, Potenza has you covered! Treating the chest, face, and abdomen all with one device.

Potenza treatments help tighten* skin and improve skin firmness through soft tissue coagulation.

*Through soft tissue coagulation
The Potenza radiofrequency microneedling device is intended for electrocoagulation and hemostasis of soft tissue for dermatologic conditions.

Mohs micrographic surgery is the most advanced and effective treatment for skin cancer available today. Dr. Sax uses this innovative technique to:

• Ensure complete cancer removal and virtually eliminate the chance of the cancer returning
• Minimize scarring and the amount of healthy tissue lost
• Maximize functional and cosmetic results after surgery
• Remove the cancer and repair the surgical site on the same day (in most cases)
• Deliver a nearly 99% success rate, even for skin cancers that have been previously treated using another method

The Mohs surgery technique is extremely effective in Dr. Sax’s expertly trained hands. He performs the procedure in his state-of-the-art office using local anesthesia, which targets the side effects of general anesthesia and promotes faster recovery time.
During the Mohs procedure, Dr. Sax removes skin cancer cells layer by layer and examines them under a microscope until healthy, cancer-free tissue around the tumor is reached. This technique allows him to remove the minimum amount of tissue needed, which is especially important for cancers near the eyes, nose, ears or lips, or on the hands.

Before the procedure, Dr. Sax uses a local anesthetic to numb the surgery site, making the surgery itself virtually pain free. Depending on the location of the cancer there may be some discomfort in the first few days following surgery but severe pain is uncommon, and pain medication is only needed in rare cases.
