Oral and maxillofacial surgeons routinely perform treatment for facial injuries. These highly trained professionals must be adept in emergency care, acute treatment, and long-term reconstruction and rehabilitation — not just for physical reasons but emotional sequelae as well. Surgeons such as Kingston practitioner Dr. Matthew Hilmi are rigorously trained, skilled, and uniquely qualified to manage and treat facial trauma. Injuries to the face impart emotional, as well as physical trauma to patients. Treating these injuries requires many years of advanced specialty training, far beyond basic dental school and the requisite internship, involving a hospital-based residency experience and an intricate understanding of how the treatment provided will influence the patient's long-term function and appearance. Matthew Hilmi is one of the few oral and maxillofacial surgeons to provide facial trauma repairs in the Mid-Hudson Valley Region.

Jump to navigation. Microneedling is an FDA-approved electronic fractional device that is used to rejuvenate the skin and improve the skin surface by reducing fine lines, expression lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and acne scars. This process has two major benefits - it effectively stimulates collagen formation and provides a clear channel for topical serums to be absorbed through the surface of the skin. By persistently triggering this healing process with a series of Micro Needling treatments, the body keeps repairing the skin incrementally and cumulatively to offer a result similar to fractional laser treatments or chemical peels, but without the side effects and extended downtime. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin. Once the desired result has been achieved, it is important to maintain collagen stimulation by returning for quarterly maintenance treatments. While most commonly used on the face, Micro Needling can also be used to restore and regenerate the skin on the neck, chest, and hands.
