BOTOX® Cosmetic is a substance injected into the muscles, temporarily relaxing those muscles. When the muscle relaxes, the overlying wrinkle flattens. BOTOX® Cosmetic works best on expression lines and deep furrows, particularly in the forehead, lines between the eyes and laugh lines. The effects are not permanent and further treatments are necessary. Results are not immediate. It may take up to two weeks for the effects to take place.
Juvéderm These treatments are usually indicated to correct skin depressions around the mouth, chin and lip area. The treatments are performed in the office. Small amounts of the Juvéderm filler are injected into the layers of the skin to improve the contour. There is some swelling for a short period of time. The results are not permanent and repeat injections will be necessary to maintain the appearance.
Flash Lamp Treatments for Discoloration
Flash Lamp Treatments are used for rosacea, facial spider veins, or other pigmented areas on the face. The Flash Lamp works by creating a pulse of intense light that can reduce or eliminate surface capillaries, port wine marks and brown hyper-pigmented spots. It takes several treatments to achieve the desired results.
Flash Lamp Treatments for Hair Reduction
Flash Lamp Treatments are used for the reduction of unwanted hair on various parts of the body. The pulse of light shocks the hair follicle thereby interrupting its growth cycle. Several treatments are required to get the best results.
This procedure uses fine crystals to remove the outermost layer of dry skin cells thereby gently and precisely exfoliating the surface of the skin. The results are a fresher, younger appearance to the skin. For the best results we recommend multiple treatments over several weekly visits. There is minimal discomfort and redness. One can usually go back to one's normal routine right after the treatment with a more vibrant, healthier appearance to the skin.
Skin Peels - Glycolic Acid, Retin-A, TCA
Skin peels are a popular choice for patients seeking younger and healthier looking skin. Peels may be used to treat sun damage, melasma, hyper-pigmentation, acne, and fine lines and wrinkles. A skin peel loosens dry skin cells that form a barrier on the skin's surface. This exfoliation helps to correct surface discoloration, blemishes, and stimulate cell renewal to bring back the glow and softness of healthy, younger-looking skin.
