Botox • Dysport • Restylane
We carry a wide array of injectables that will be used, often in combination, to address your needs. Neurotoxins (aka “botox”) are used to treat wrinkles of the forehead and around the eyes. Fillers are used to add volume to the upper cheeks, soften wrinkles around the mouth, improve nasal contours (aka “liquid rhinoplasty”) and add volume to the lips. Injectables are a great way to look more youthful without surgery, and can be used as a supplement to skin care, laser treatments, or surgical procedures. Some refer to the use of neurotoxins and fillers in combination as a “liquid face lift”.
Resurfacing • Pigmentation • Fine Blood Vessels • Tattoo Removal
There are a variety of lasers that can be used to treat a number of skin conditions. Typically, the intensity of the laser treatment correlates with the benefit seen. To address fine wrinkles and tighten the skin a powerful CO2 laser can be used, however it can require general anesthesia and recovery is about 1 month. A profractional laser (often with a microlaser peel) can accomplish the same thing with about 1 week of recovery and no need for general anesthesia, however results are more subtle and it can require 3-5 treatments to achieve the same result as a single CO2 treatment. Pigmentation, fine blood vessels, and tattoos can be treated with gentler lasers that may or may not require a topical numbing cream or local anesthetic. We have an extremely experienced laser technician who brings a variety of lasers to our practice every month, and he helps us determine the best laser and settings to use. We do not perform laser hair removal.
