The lines that appear across your forehead (transverse forehead rhytids), between your brows (glabellar "frown" lines), and smile lines at the corners of your eyes and on your nose are actually the result of muscle movement beneath the skin and the steady passage of time. As you make facial expressions throughout your normal day, your facial muscles contract, causing the overlying skin to wrinkle. This is quite apparent when most people frown, emphasizing the glabellar frown lines between your eyes.
Over time this continual wrinkling of the muscles causes facial lines to stay longer and become more pronounced. For women, whose faces tend to be more animated than men's and whose skin is typically more delicate, these lines may appear exaggerated and become "permanent".
BOTOX® is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can improve, and in some cases completely erase mild to moderate wrinkles. The treatment, which is performed in our office, consists of a few tiny injections and generally takes 10-15 minutes. After your procedure, you will often be able to see a dramatic result the same day or within a few days. Results may last four months, although individual results vary. Our doctors will tailor your treatment to your goals. It will not change "your look" and you can smile, frown, or look surprised; and you will look younger and more rested without the wrinkles and creases you had before.
Facial fillers such as Restylane, Radiesse, Perlane, and Juvederm are naturally occurring gels that are injected into the skin as a "filler" in order to add volume to aging skin, lips and to lift up wrinkles and folds.
If you're considering treatment for your facial wrinkles and folds, we encourage you to learn about these facial fillers and how they provide structural support and lift to your facial crease, wrinkles and folds. These injectables can be used alone or in combination with Botox to help you reach your goal of a more youthful appearance. The procedures are non-surgical, minimally invasive, and their effects are immediate.
During your consultation, your surgeon will discuss with you the different products available and their different characteristics. They will work with you to choose the right combination of products to maximize your result. Each product is slightly different, lasting various amounts of time. For the most part, the products are designed to be temporary, or ‘semi-permanent' with each lasting a different amount of time. How long the aesthetic correction lasts is very individual. The procedure consists of injecting the filler directly into your skin in small amounts by an ultrafine needle. As with all injections, some patients may experience discomfort. To increase your comfort, your doctor will assess your need for pain management and determine what technique is right for you.

Intense Pulse Light Candela Ellipse™ is a skin rejuvenation system. IPL stimulates collagen, treats hyperpigmentation (brown spots, age spots and sun damage) and diffuses redness (rosacea, broken vessels) from the skin. The result of this treatment is younger and firmer looking skin.
Microdermabrasion is a mechanical peel using a slightly abrasive tip in combination with light suction. Our medical grade non-crystal based system achieves textural improvement and is clinically proven for treating fine lines and wrinkles, decreasing pore size and mild acne scarring.
Microdermabrasion is referred to as the "lunch time peel".
Dermaplaning is a manual method of peeling the skin. It is a skin resurfacing procedure that uses a special surgical blade to gently plane or lightly scrape away the top, dead, dull layer of epidermal cells. This process is also called epidermal leveling. The controlled technique refines the skin, revealing a clear, smooth surface. The treatment is effective for most skin types. Dermabrasion remains the gold standard treatment for acne scarring, deeper scars and lines, sun damage, and significant skin aging. During the procedure, a special instrument with a rapidly rotating sanding disk scrapes away the skin's outer surface.
Dermabrasion is a minor surgical performed under local, sedation, or general anesthesia. Afterwards, your face will be red and raw. Healing may take between one and four weeks and discoloration may persist for up to a month. It is also important for you to avoid sun exposure for several months after your treatment.
We use a variety of different acid peel solutions, very effective with microdermabrasion and dermaplaning. Alpha hydroxy based solutions and specialty acids such as TCA™ and retinoic acids can be used to treat wrinkles, fine lines and damaged skin encouraging cellular renewal and turnover. This treatment is beneficial for all skin types including acneic skin.
The most important part of any treatment is maintaining the results. The five essential steps are cleansing, exfoliation, nourishment, hydrating/moisturizing and protection. We carry a variety of medical grade product lines for every patient's needs. We have advanced training to give expert advice on which products are best for you.
