There are a number of dermal injectables available to treat facial wrinkles and folds. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are designed to relax the underlying facial muscles on the forehead and around the eyes to minimize the appearance of frown lines and crow’s feet. These procedures have been performed with great success for decades to erase years of frowning, laughing, squinting, smoking or sunbathing.
Below are brief descriptions of our cosmetic dermatology services:
Cosmetic Dermal Fillers
Many people are plagued by deepening “laugh lines” running from the nose to the corners of the mouth and “marionette lines” from the corners of the mouth down to the chin. Several dermal fillers in the form of clear injectable gels are available to treat these areas, including Juvederm®, Perlane®, Radiesse® and Restylane®. These folds can add years to your face and can virtually be erased instantly with a series of relatively painless injections. As each of these products is a bit different from the others, it’s best to consult your physician for the treatment most likely to yield optimal results for your skin issues and complexion.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Lasers have been used for years to erase fine lines, wrinkles, scars, age spots and sun damage and to improve skin tone. Using a targeted approach, the laser sends short, pulsating beams of light to affected areas to remove damaged skin and encourage growth of collagen fibers, leaving behind smoother, firmer skin. The precision of today’s lasers means only problem areas are eliminated.
Intensive Pulsed Light (IPL) PhotoFacial Treatment
This light-based treatment delivers broadband light to penetrate below the surface of the skin to help restore a youthful appearance to sun-damaged or aging skin. It can be used to improve rosacea, erase facial veins, reduce fine lines and treat sun spots and irregular pigmentation. Face, neck and hands can be treated with some patients seeing excellent results with just one or two treatments.
A range of procedures can help restore your skin to a youthful glow. Patients have found that treatments including microdermabrasion, vibradermabrasion and chemical peels can help improve the appearance of a variety of skin issues including fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, light scarring, sun damage and tired-looking skin.
Microdermabrasion and Vibradermabrasion
Microdermabrasion and Vibradermabrasion are two methods of gently and effectively exfoliating the outer layers of the skin to stimulate production of collagen and reveal softer, smoother, more evenly toned skin. The procedures differ in the method of “buffing” away old skin cells, but both can be used to improve the appearance of crow’s feet, age spots, acne scarring, stretch marks and large pores. These procedures are sometimes used with chemical peels.
Available in superficial and medium depth formulations, chemical peels offer another method of improving skin’s coloration and texture. A chemical solution is applied to the skin, which eventually blisters and peels off, revealing a fresh, smooth youthful complexion. A variety of chemical peels can be used to remove tired, discolored skin and reveal a fresh, new complexion in just a matter of days. After a peel, most patients find improvement in appearance of minor scars, reduction of fine lines around the mouth and eyes and a softer feel to the skin. They generally work better on fair-skinned patients, as people with darker coloring may have uneven skin tone after the treatment.
