Dr. Praveen Buddiga’s Immunology Background Provides a Seamless Transition into Skin Aesthetics 

For decades, Dr. Praveen Buddiga has been the leading immunologist in Northern California. His practice, BUDDIGA Family Allergy | Skin | Immunology continues to grow as new patients turn to him to diagnose and treat their allergies, asthma, and overall immune health. Now, Dr. Buddiga has expanded his services to treat one more critical component of the immune system: the skin. Based on patient demand, BUDDIGA Skin Aesthetics Med Spa brings Dr. Buddiga’s immunological and dermatological expertise together by providing a spectrum of skin care and anti-aging treatments.

Dr. Buddiga understands that so much of a person’s self-worth comes from feeling good in their skin, and immunological conditions can take their toll on the skin’s appearance and on a patient’s sense of wellbeing. From treating allergies to helping people reduce the appearance of wrinkles, his extensive experience can help patients with a broad range of conditions and health histories to reach their immunology and aesthetic goals.

A Holistic Approach to Skin Aesthetics

Dr. Buddiga brings a unique approach to skin aesthetics. Traditionally, estheticians focus solely on the appearance of the skin. They may have an understanding of dermatology and the science behind skin appearance, but their main focus is to improve how patients look and feel. Dr. Buddiga has a background in immuno-dermatology, giving him a deep understanding of the skin as a human organ and allowing him to bring a deeper level of knowledge and a holistic approach to skin aesthetics.

Dr. Buddiga has coined his practice, “skin immunology,” where the sciences of dermatology and aesthetics work together to maintain a healthy SkinImmune™ Firewall. Your skin is the first line of defense in your body, and you want this armor to look good and feel comfortable. Dr. Buddiga is committed to helping his patients love how they look and feel.

Get to Know the Skin Treatments Offered by Dr. Praveen Buddiga

Through his practice, Dr. Buddiga has developed a range of skin treatments that meet a variety of needs. When patients meet with him for the first time, they can discuss their concerns and goals for treatment. Everyone has different insecurities and faces different aging challenges, and Dr. Buddiga works to address each of them and ensure patients feel their best.

“Skin is the first thing one notices when they meet you,” says Dr. Buddiga. “It’s the first impression that another person has of you. And, as people begin to live even longer lives, they naturally want to have great skin that protects them throughout their lifetime.”

Skin health goes deeper than immunology treatments. It also means keeping your skin resilient and healthy. These treatments can help address aging to keep you looking and feeling younger. Here are the best-in-class options offered by Dr. Praveen Buddiga.

Botox Injections

Botox injections are one of the most common ways to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment has been used around the world since 2002, and the company has sold more than 100 million vials across 95 countries since then.

While Botox is the most widely recognized brand name, there are other treatments that use the same chemicals. Dysport and Jeuveau are two other injections that provide similar results.

Botox injections target the facial muscles and limit their ability to contract. If you stand in the mirror and knit your eyebrows together, you may notice a deep crease that forms. Over time, it’s harder for your muscles to bounce back, which means the crease remains even after you relax your eyebrows. Botox targets this crease, to give you a brighter, less worried look.

Along with targeting the space between your eyebrows, Botox can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles in multiple areas of your face. These include the sides of your eyes (commonly called crow’s feet), your forehead, and areas around your mouth. In your consultation with Dr. Buddiga, he’ll learn which areas you are concerned about and will determine if you are a candidate for injectables and recommend a Botox, Dysport, or Jeuveau treatment plan.

Dermal Fillers

Another option to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is the use of dermal fillers. These injections use non-surgical formulas that contain a modified form of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) to boost the volume of the skin.

There are three different lines of fillers that Dr. Buddiga uses, Restylane®, Kysse®, and JUVÉDERM®. Each of these brands drives similar results and patients will have similar experiences regardless of the filler brand they use. The main difference between the three chemicals is their texture.

Dermal fillers can help patients smooth lines around the nose and mouth. They can restore volume to sunken cheeks and smooth out chin creases. Many people use fillers to create a plumper look for their lips or to diminish vertical lines around the mouth.

Opus™ Plasma

Opus Plasma is a first in industry-leading skin resurfacing treatment and is considered one of the most prolific advancements in the cosmetic industry. The goal of Opus Plasma is to reduce the appearance of wrinkles while also targeting loose skin. This treatment can be used to target sensitive areas of the face with minimal risks and can improve areas like the neck and décolleté, which are often sources of loose skin.

Skin resurfacing uses radiofrequency and microplasma technology to address the tone, texture, and laxity of the skin. If you are worried because your skin feels loose or lacks the softness that you would prefer, then skin resurfacing might be an optimal treatment for you.

With this treatment method, metal pins on the Opus Plasma system reach a high-frequency wave of 40 MHz. This, along with a high-RF voltage, creates plasma when placed near the skin.

Skin resurfacing is a versatile treatment and Dr. Buddiga will adjust the treatment plan for each patient. Consider asking to start with a small area to see what the procedure is like and to better understand the results that Opus Plasma provides.

No matter what your wellness and anti-aging goals are, Dr. Buddiga can help you look radiant and feel great about your appearance.
