News and Events
Dr. Pilest's patients' before and after photos were featured in New Beauty Magazine's Winter 2013 issue. New Beauty is a national "big book" magaine dedicated to the beauty industry. Featuring the latest in cosmetic procedures, New Beauty has become the "go to" publication for men and women who want to see what's available for improving appearance and stalling the aging process.
Dr. Pilest was approached by the publication to submit photos to be used in the editorial sections on fillers and injectables.
Injection safety has become an important issue with the new uses of injectables. Core physicians were invited to participate in a one-of-a-kind Human Cadaver workshop developed by Docent LLC. Physicians were presented with a unique hands on opportunity to actually see inside the skin how fillers behave and how to safely navigate delicate structures. Avoiding the "danger zones" such as arteries and facial nerves is of the utmost importance in providing pleasing patient results as safely as possible.
"Every physician who injects fillers or toxins should at the least view and complete the online Cadaver Dissection CME by Docent LLC - and if at all possible, participate in a live workshop as they provide invaluable techniques and knowledge." Nissan Pilest, M.D.
The Dermatologic Society of Orange County starts 2012 with a new president, 33 year veteran Board Certified Dermatologist Nissan Pilest, and a focus on increased Continuing Medical Education for members and non members and extended efforts of public education.
The Society is home to many of the top dermatologists and academic researchers in Southern California and has been active in promoting physician leadership and involvement in community action since 1983.
New wrinkle filler slated to fill the gap for fine lines and superficial wrinkles and lines. Orange County Dermatology Trainer/Teacher/Professor adds new Belotero hyaluronic gel to dermal filler line-up
Although not dramatically different from the HA gels that have been in use for the last decade, Belotero is being marketed by the manufacturer as a gel which will more easily integrate with skin tissue. This enhanced integration is the key to treatment of finer lines and more superficial skin irregularities.
“The Swiss are known for their precision”, Dr. Pilest reminds. “This precision is poised to add to the perfection potential. And that definitely excites me!”
Needles have been replaced with flexible smooth tip micro cannulas for pain-free and near bruise-free placement of dermal fillers.
No longer must patients endure the many needle sticks previously required to access multiple areas. With the cannula, only a few entry points are needed to access the entire lower face. For the needle phobic patient, this change alone opens up a whole new world of possibilities.
Dr. Nissan Pilest, a veteran Board Certified Dermatologist with 33 years' experience, was recently invited to provide an educational workshop on the injectable products Restylane, Perlane and Dysport, offered by Medicis Pharmaceuticals.
All aesthetic physicians understand the benefit from continued education scenarios with their more established and experienced peers. No physician "knows it all", and the constant changes in the aesthetic market demands time and attention and shared knowledge.
Isolaz Acne Laser has shown to be a successful alternative to older acne laser treatments with patients aged 13 and up.
"The increased risk associated with antibiotics means more patients, young and mature, appreciate having alternatives which provide acne relief without increasing levels of antibiotic resistance or side effects common with antibiotics."
A typical Isolaz treatment plan is once weekly for 6 weeks then occasional maintenance treatments or an "on demand" treatment if there is unexpected acne flare.
Irvine Dermatologist Nissan Pilest acclaims success of new Isolaz Acne Laser in reducing acne with dual-action technology.
"With Isolaz we’ve begun a very unique and very effective method of removing a great deal of the causative factor of acne..."

Physician Training for Radiesse
Fraxel laser is the new treatment for aging skin -- anywhere. Body skin resurfacing was "practically impractical" before Fraxel. Now your hands, neck, chest, literally any area of your body, can be gently and youthfully resurfaced by Fraxel's innovative system.
Fraxel Dermatologist in irvine, California shows how fractional resurfacing works on all parts of the body.
Tweaking the Thermage delivery techniques has already proven to offer substantial improvements. Adding customized "PLUS" treatments creates an effective program for de-aging. Patients get a personalized recipe for both short term and permanent effects.

By the time Erik arrived at the office of Orange County Dermatologist Nissan Pilest, the 15 year-old was in big trouble with his skin.
The physician recalled, "His face and neck were covered with extremely painful cysts, pus-filled pimples and angry red acne scars. Acne punished not just his face, but his back and shoulders, too. It was a summer day and he wore a turtle neck sweater and a baseball cap pulled low over his eyes.
"You could see that the pain of his skin was nothing compared to the pain in his soul. He was distraught, angry and visibly fought to hold back the tears."
When Erik came in that first day, he scowled at everyone, mumbled that it was his mother's idea and complained that he didn't have any reason to be there, "since nothing's going to work anyway."
Dr. Pilest told Erik he was delighted to have him in the office because he could see the future. He promised Erik that he would " look definitively different in a matter of weeks."
There are technologically advanced skin-changing lasers and procedures coming on the market faster than most people can keep up with. Yet, one of the most amazing treatments on the market today is - you guessed it - Botox. Why?
Resistant and Cystic Acne frequently fails to respond to typical measures of control. A safe topical two-step treatment which chemically coats and then destroys acne bacteria offers a new solution.
