Cosmetic Rejuvenating Procedures

WHAT WE OFFER FOR REJUVENATION OF THE FACE

 

Chemical peels can be performed to various levels of the skin. For significantly sun damaged skin the TCA peel is a medium peel that significantly improves the weathering caused by chronic sun damage. It helps with creases and wrinkles on the face as well as irregular pigmentation. The down side is there is moderate discomfort and  week of down time. A gentler, more superficial peel is the Glycolic peel. These peels are very versatile and are used in the younger population for acne, comedones and superficial pigment problems. In the middle age group the Glycolic peels are a nice gentle rejuvenating procedure that is done with little discomfort and no down time.

 

Treatment with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) alone or in combination with a chemical called Levulan (Photo Dynamic Therapy or PDT) are nice alternatives to Chemical peels for rejuvenating the skin. These treatments are also effective in treating acne, oil gland enlargements, fine facial hairs and precancerous lesions called Actinic keratosis.

 

Volumizers or fillers are a very popular method to turn back the clock due to sagging, pronounced creases and wrinkles due to volume loss. The Hylaronic Acid (HA) based  fillers are the most commonly used in the Cosmetic arena.  Our office offers Restylane, Restylane Lift and Restylane Silk  as the HA fillers of choice. Each has distinct advantages over the other and ultimately the choice is based on each patient's needs and personal expectations. Fillers are also useful in treating scars and in augmenting facial features such as the lip and the cheeks.

 

Botox and Dysport are muscle relaxing agents derived from Botulinum Toxin. Injection with these agents are used most commonly for relaxing the frown lines and the crow's feet but are also useful in softening the forehead lines and the lip lines. 

Other Procedures We Offer

Sclerotherapy is currently the gold standard for treating small veins or telangectasia in the lower extremities. It involves the injection of a concentrated chemical such as 23.4% Saline or Polidocanol to cause the vessels to scar down and go away. 

 

PDT is an effective way to shrink or flatten the whitish papules (enlarged oil glands) that people with oily skin get as they get older. It is also used in treating resistant cases of acne. 

 

Of course we also offer simple removal of various growths such as skin tags, seborrheic keratosis and unwanted moles.

 

OUR GOAL IS TO HELP YOU CHOOSE THE MOST APPROPRIATE COSMETIC PROCEDURE FOR YOUR PARTICULAR COSMETIC CONCERN. WE ARE FIRM BELIEVERS IN THE SAYING "ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL", EACH PATIENT IS UNIQUE AND SHOULD BE TREATED AS SUCH.
