Botox injection is a procedure which can dramatically soften the appearance and inhibit the formation of wrinkles in the skin. Botox is FDA approved for cosmetic purposes. Muscles of expression are relaxed by the injection of small amounts of Botox into these specific muscles. The action of the muscles is inhibited and the muscle can no longer contract. The action of frowning is stopped and the frown lines diminish. One can then have a more youthful, relaxed and unworried appearance. The most common locations of injections are the frown lines between the eyes, crow's feet on the outer corners of the eyes, and the forehead. The procedure is safe and simple enough to be performed in a few minutes. Results are seen in 4-7 days. Botox may also be injected for hyperhidrosis or sweating.
Fillers such as Juvederm and Radiesse plump up wrinkles and furrows, & fill in sagging skin caused by age & sun. Sagging corners of the mouth, wrinkle/furrow lines from the nose to the mouth (nasiolabial folds), acne scars and hollow cheeks are restored. Lip border outlines lost through age & sunlight exposure can be redefined and volume can be added to improve the appearance of thin lips. Results are immediate and dramatic. The duration of effect depends on the fillers, but on average both can last up to a year.
In addition we now offer JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC which is an FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. It can give you contour and a subtle lift for up to two years with optimal treatment.
Laser Peels with the Venus remove the upper layer of the skin. As the skin is regenerated, discoloration, fine wrinkles, superficial scars, frown lines and other marks will be diminished or in many cases eliminated. Your medical practitioner can tailor the depth of the peel & recovery time to your individual needs. A series of three or more treatments is recommended for optimal results.
Laser Treatment for Rosacea and Redness or Broken Blood Vessels using the Aura, a 532nm wavelength of laser light, can eliminate unsightly small blood vessels on the face, neck, & chest. In combination with a clinical Rosacea treatment by your Dermatologist, laser treatments can improve the appearance of your skin. We also offer several medical-grade products to help minimize the appearance of Rosacea and redness.
Laser Treatment for Razor Bumps Laser light energy passes through the skin and is absorbed in the hair follicle residing underneath the skin's surface. The laser energy destroys the follicle with the local heat that it generates. Destroyed hairs are then either dissolved within the skin or ejected by the body. Treatment is FDA approved to treat shaving bumps on dark complected and tanned skin. Our lasers are safe for ethnic skin. Low absorption in pigment makes it an ideal and safe treatment while maintaining the normal appearance of the skin. Since laser treatment impairs the growth of hair follicles when they are in the growth cycle, and all follicles are not active at the same time, multiple treatments (spaced 3-4 weeks apart) may be required to obtain the overall effect.
Laser Hair Reduction using the Lyra is a safe and effective way to eliminate unwanted body and facial hair. Laser hair reduction can be accomplished on all skin types, but is most effective on dark hair. It is safe for all skin types. Laser treatments impair the growth capacity of the hair follicles during an active growth phase. Not all follicles are active at the same time, thus several treatments every 4-6 weeks are necessary to obtain the desired result. The number of visits needed varies; however, most patients require 6-10 treatments. Topical numbing cream is applied prior to the procedure to ensure comfort.
Laser Treatment for Freckles, Age Spots or "Liver Spots" uses the Aura laser. Our laser is designed to treat superficial skin blemishes on the face, chest, back, shoulders, and hands. Brown spots are premature aging of the skin due to sun exposure. Although most brown spots are easily ignored, many are quite conspicuous and can detract from your skin's natural beauty. This popular procedure is quick and non-invasive. Results are unique to each individual, depending on your skin tone and the extent of the pigmented areas. More than one treatment might be necessary for optimal results.
