Benefits of the Morpheus 8 Treatment

July 12, 2023 | By |

Over the past couple of years, the Morpheus 8 Treatment has increased in popularity among those who are looking to improve loose skin or uneven texture irregularities that are naturally occurring in the skin aging process. The Morpheus 8 Treatment is minimally invasive, as it is a laser that combines micro-needling and radio-frequency energy to correct several different issues patients have with the skin on their faces, necks, chest, and stomachs.

While it is always important to consult your doctor prior to signing up for a cosmetic procedure, the Morpheus 8 Treatment has been known to be safe and can benefit several different skin types, age groups, and other variables.

The Morpheus 8 Treatment has also grown in popularity due to the different benefits it has over other micro-needling and facial enhancement procedures. For instance, with the Morpheus 8 Treatment, the efficiency and strength of the laser reduces the number of treatments you will need performed in order to see results. The Morpheus 8 Treatment is also a targeted treatment, meaning you can have the procedure performed only on certain problem areas you wish to have corrected. Lastly, the Morpheus 8 Treatment is a quick procedure, with little recovery time and few side effects, allowing patients to go about their regular schedule quickly after their appointment.

Reasons You Should Visit the Gynecologist

June 1, 2023 | By |

The thought of visiting the gynecologist may seem nerve-wracking, but regular checkups are critical to staying healthy. You may be wondering when is a good time to go to the gynecologist. Check out the following section to learn more about some of the top reasons to schedule an appointment with an OBGYN.

Annual Exam

One of the most common reasons that people start visiting the OBGYN is to get an annual exam. The appointment consists of a pelvic exam, pap smear, and breast exam. If the doctor notices any unusual symptoms or abnormalities, they may order further testing. An annual exam is key to preventing symptoms from worsening and catching cancers in their early stages.


Whether you’ve already received a positive result from a pregnancy test, or you’re having pregnancy symptoms, an OBGYN will be able to properly confirm it. As with any pregnancy, proper prenatal care and treatment are necessary to ensure that you have a healthy pregnancy and delivery process. For high-risk pregnancies, an OBGYN will be able to help you develop a pregnancy plan that fits your specific healthcare needs.


Another critical reason to visit the gynecologist is to check for STDs. Whether you’re certain that you’ve been sexually active with someone with an STD, or you’re showing the signs of an STD, it never hurts to get checked. Some common signs of an STD are unusual vaginal discharge, odor, sores, and itchiness. While many STDs cause symptoms, there are also some that stay dormant so it’s possible to have one and not know it. Getting regular STD testing will ensure that you’re staying safe and healthy.

Birth Control

Researching all the different types of birth on your own can be very overwhelming. A gynecologist will be able to sit with you and go over all the options. They can help you weigh the pros and cons to help determine the best option for your health and lifestyle.


If you’re noticing changes in vaginal discharge, itchiness, or burning while urinating, it’s time to see a gynecologist. There are many different types of infections out there so it’s important to treat the issue properly. An OBGYN will be able to diagnose the issue quickly and develop a comprehensive treatment plan.

Period Issues

While many people have periods, not everyone experiences them the same. Some may have completely regular cycles. While others may have painful, heavy, or irregular periods. It’s important to discuss these menstrual changes with your gynecologist, as they could be a sign of an underlying issue.

How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

April 18, 2019 | By |

Laser hair removal is a popular treatment that’s used to permanently remove unwanted hair from desired areas on the body with concentrated beams of light. Below are a few important steps we generally recommend taking to prepare for your first treatment, but if you’re new to laser hair removal, it’s important to also have a conversation with your specialist to ensure that you’re taking all the necessary precautions.

Avoid Tanning, Both Naturally & Artificially

Having a tan of any kind can increase the risk of skin lightening and other side effects from laser hair removal treatments. Following the procedure, you should also avoid excessive sun exposure, since the treatment area will still be relatively sensitive for a few weeks. Be sure to apply a strong sunscreen if you do need to be outside.

Shave the Treatment Area

Trimming and shaving is recommended as instructed, typically around 1-3 days before your scheduled appointment, but all other hair removal methods should generally be avoided. Shaving is acceptable because it removes the hair above the skin but leaves the hair follicles intact. If longer hair is present, the process can be more painful.

Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

You may feel slight pain or a burning sensation during the procedure, but typically the pain isn’t too severe. Many people compare it to a rubber band being snapped against your skin.

After the treatment, you may experience temporary swelling and redness that should naturally subside over time. If it remains, please contact your specialist for further consultation.

What To Expect During Your First Pregnancy Ultrasound

March 13, 2019 | By |

The first ultrasound, also known as a sonogram, is a special milestone in any pregnancy, and typically occurs around week 8 of your first trimester. Anything before week 8 is typically too small to see at that point.

First Trimester Ultrasound: Why It’s Necessary

During your first exam, your OB-GYN will:

-Confirm pregnancy and check for multiple pregnancies
-Check your baby’s heartbeat
-Determine the gestational age of your baby and estimate your due date
-Ensure that your fallopian tubes and ovaries are healthy

We typically ask that you come to your first pregnancy ultrasound with a full bladder. This is because sound waves travel best through liquid, so having a full bladder can help the overall quality of your ultrasound. As we get into the second and third trimester, you’ll have more amniotic fluid, so having a full bladder won’t matter as much.

Does an Ultrasound Hurt?

The exam won’t hurt, although the gel used may temporarily feel cold on your abdomen. You can best prepare for the ultrasound by wearing two-piece clothing that you feel comfortable in.

After the Ultrasound

Once we’re finished with the sonogram, you’ll be able to schedule your next one, which will take place approximately around 16-20 weeks. However, in special cases, or if you suffer from or have a family history of a chronic illness like diabetes or ovarian cysts/fibroids, you may require additional ultrasounds throughout your pregnancy.

If you are unsure of when or how often you should have an ultrasound during your pregnancy, please feel free to consult with our staff here at Suburban Women’s Health Care in Amherst, NY. Helping women through pregnancy and into motherhood is something we take very seriously, and we look forward to helping you receive the quality obstetrical care you need. Call today!
