Scheiner Found Unique Niche In Facial Rejuvenation
Dr. Adam J. Scheiner of Tampa has carved out a unique niche in facial rejuvenation surgery since his medical school days at the University of Pennsylvania. He says, “I always wanted to work with my hands and was fortunate that we had clinical rounds with early rotations in medical school. I had my first rotation with Dr. Allan Wulc, leading Oculoplastic surgeon focused on facial reconstructive surgery after cancer. Later, in Oklahoma City, I had my Eyelid and Laser Facial Plastic Surgery Fellowship with Dr. Sterling Baker where I trained specifically with lasers, including laser techniques to help tighten skin and help improve eyelid festoons –a difficult-to-treat cosmetic eyelid condition.
“This was 20 years ago and I helped patients with festoons routinely in my office. One of my colleagues was Dr. Guy Massry, an Oculoplastic surgeon, who, for his book “Master Techniques in Blepharoplasty & Periorbital Rejuvenation”, asked me to write the chapter on treating festoons. For a companion DVD, I was asked to videotape my procedures, which I put on YouTube and it was copied around the world. This led to a lot of media attention including interviews on the Dr. Oz Show, The Doctors TV Show, Howard Stern, and print articles in the New York Post, The Boston Herald and The New York Daily News, among others. Most important, this got me worldwide attention so that now about 80% of my patients fly in from around the world for my festoon and facial rejuvenation surgery.”
Dr. Scheiner’s Work Led To Reset Surgery
Dr. Scheiner’s work on festoons led to his RESET surgery for sun damage. One of his patients who had been treated with lasers to tighten the skin on the lower eyelids, came back two years later with major skin lesion eruptions all over her face due to extreme sun exposure – except where he had tightened the skin under the lids. Dr. Scheiner continues, “I was occasionally able to see early skin cancers and removed them as well — especially significant for early precancers known as Actinic Keratosis (AKs) on their patients, as 10% of
these later form Squamous Cell Carcinoma. I now call this procedure RESET for Sun Damage, and have had many dermatologists send patients to me because of the difficulty they had in continually treating AKs on their patients.”
“Most of us underestimate the effect that casual sun exposure has on our body, The sun’s UV rays affect the basal cell layer of the epidermis — the layer that leads to many skin
cancers. Once I learned of my treatment’s new potential, I began using it on many patients with sun damage in an effort to RESET their skin to a younger, healthier, and more
