Botox corrects dynamic wrinkles are caused by the contractions of the delicate underlying facial muscles every time you smile, laugh or frown. These lines caused by facial muscles can give a person an angry, tired or sad appearance – even when they are not experiencing that emotion. The more emotion you show, the deeper these wrinkles and lines are likely to be. Botox Cosmetic treatments are performed by our Medical Providers so they can prevent the formation of dynamic wrinkles.

Botox Cosmetic treatment is the latest advancement in botulinum toxin therapy. It is used to safely, simply and effectively improve the appearance of frown lines, forehead creases and “crow’s feet.” By relaxing the underlying muscles, Botox Cosmetic reduces wrinkles. Botox Cosmetic is a remarkable treatment for dynamic wrinkles resulting from repeated use of facial muscles.

Botox Cosmetic actually prevents wrinkles from appearing by relaxing the underlying muscles so they don’t contract. Botox Cosmetic blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing your normal facial expression to be unaffected.

Unfortunately, Botox Cosmetic is a temporary solution for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles. The effects of the treatments last from 4 – 6 months. You will need to have treatments about 2 – 3 times a year. Early clinical studies indicate that after receiving Botox Cosmetic over time, there appears to be a longer lasting effect. This could be due to the relaxing of the skin in that area and breaking the habit of certain facial expressions.

Most patients can usually be treated with Botox Cosmetic regardless of other drugs used. However, some drugs that interfere with nerve impulses to muscles could alter the effect of Botox Cosmetic. It is important to let your doctor know what drugs you are taking during your consultation before undergoing any medical procedure.

During your consultation with our physician, you will discuss your concerns and the changes that you’d like to make in your appearance. The doctor will explain Botox Cosmetic treatments to you, review the procedure, and point out the risks and limitations involved. Together you will decide if Botox Cosmetic is for you.

Treating wrinkles with Botox Cosmetic is a simple and safe procedure and the entire treatment takes about 10 minutes.

IPL Hair Removal

The IPL process uses intense pulsed light to gently remove unwanted hair, putting an end to routine shaving and waxing. IPL treatments leave your skin looking and feeling smoother and silkier. This patented technology transcends the older, painful hair removal treatments to deliver long lasting results. IPL’s wide beam treats larger areas such as the back, shoulders, arms, legs and face rather than treating one hair at a time. Best of all, IPL treatments are a safe, fast, gentle and effective alternativemethod for hair removal.

Electrolysis is a much slower process. With electrolysis, a needle is actually inserted into each hair follicle, one at a time. Once inserted, an electric shock burns the follicle to retard growth.

IPL hair removal treatments only use intense pulsed light energy. This is unique because it is relatively painless and unlike the laser hair removal process, IPL works equally well on most skin pigmentations without removing any of the pigment. IPL hair removal can also safely and effectively eliminate hair of all colors: blond, red, brown, black and even white.

With the IPL process, our technician can gently treat hair in sensitive areas such as the lip or nipples while maintaining a healthy, normal appearance of the surrounding tissue.

Treatments can last from a few minutes to a few hours depending on the size of the area being treated. IPL hair removal treatments are relatively painless, yet effective.

The number of treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depends on the area you wish to have treated, the hair density and your hair’s growth cycle. Your hair grows in cycles and many factors influence it’s growth. Age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism all play a part in your hair’s location, thickness and resilience.

IPL slows the growing capacity of follicles in the growth cycle at the time of the treatment. Since some hair follicles may enter their growth cycle after your treatment, three or four treatments may be required to deliver optimal results.

Note: Removing hair does not make it grow back thicker, darker or quicker. The opposite is usually the case. IPL treatments may cause hair to come back slower and thinner.

After our technician performs your IPL Hair Removal treatment, the area is cleansed and you can return to your normal activities immediately. We may recommend that you use a specially formulated skincare product line or prescribe a skin care regime especially formulated for your skin type. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun

IPL Photo Facial

IPL Rejuvenation is performed by our Technician to combat the effects of aging and damaged skin in a softer, gentler way. The redness and flushing of rosacea can be reduced 80 – 90 percent. It can be used to treat the full face, neck, chest and even the hands.

Using the advanced IPL system, our physician gently delivers precise amounts of light energy through your skin’s surface. Treatments are spaced at 3 week intervals. The energy is delivered at specific settings for each treatment to maximize your results.

The light energy stimulates the production of collagen. As the new collagen forms, it softens the appearance of aging skin. Fine lines and wrinkles are decreased. The redness associated with rosacea can be dramatically reduced.

Botox Cosmetic is a remarkable treatment for dynamic wrinkles resulting from repeated use of facial muscles.

Today’s new light technology delivers precise dosages of energy to the skin. During your treatment, light energy is gently delivered through a special handpiece to the targeted area. Levels of energy specific to your treatment are used to maximize your improvement. Once delivered, the light energy is absorbed by the targeted damaged tissue.

Depending on the area treated, there will be a series of 5 – 8 treatments. Treatments usually take from 15 – 30 minutes and are administered in the doctor’s office.

Most patients describe the sensation to be like the snap of a rubber band on the skin as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Some patients opt to have a topical anesthesia. After treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.

  • Red, flushed faces
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Hyper-pigmentation
  • Enlarged pores

Yes. Advanced light systems have been used safely for millions of treatments worldwide. These systems treat only the targeted tissues, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. However, some bruising or redness may occur.

After only one treatment, your skin will have a more even tone with a smoother look and feel. Sunspots will fade. Pore sizes will shrink. Fine lines and wrinkles will gradually decrease in size. These improvements will steadily increase with each treatment. Patients with rosacea will see a progressive decrease in redness with every treatment.

After your IPL procedure post-operative discomfort is almost nonexistent. After treatment with most light systems, the treated skin may appear a little flushed and capillaries may seem to be more visible. The flushed look soon fades away, and the capillaries appear to vanish, leaving the skin looking younger. It’s that simple.

Most patients see results immediately. However, the results may be gradual over a three to six month period as the skin tightens and more new collagen is formed. Depending on the area treated, the skin laxity and your desired results, more than one treatment may be required.

Depending on your skin’s laxity, the area to be treated and the results you desire, multiple treatments may be required. During your consultation, we will advise you as to the number and frequency of treatments that may be required to achieve your desired results.

Treatments are done in our office and take about 30 minutes and the result is immediate. Juvederm contains hyaluronic acid in the form of a crystal-clear gel. Unlike other fillers, it is supplied to your doctor in densities. Each one is designed for a specific treatment area. Our physician may use a mixture of densities to help you achieve your desired appearance.

Juvéderm is injected into the skin to create volume, resulting in a healthy and vital appearance. When injected into the lip it can restore a more natural and/or sensuous look. In contrast to other implants, Juvéderm is not extracted from animals. This means that you don’t have to worry about an allergic reaction. Juvéderm is perfectly safe to use instantly without pre-testing.

Fine lines in the forehead, “crow’s feet”, wrinkles between the eyes, on the cheeks and at the corners of the mouth, and deeper wrinkles on the cheeks and chin all respond well to Juvéderm. Lip enhancement or a “pouting” lip can be achieved using Juvéderm. This treatment also improves the vertical or “Smoker’s Lines” along the edges of the lip.

Yes. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and therefore it also dissolves naturally with time and is integrated into your body’s tissues. Over time, the molecules dissolve and turn into water as they depart without leaving any trace in your body.

It varies from individual to individual. The length of time your treatment will last depends on many factors such as your skin, your lifestyle and your age. Most patients find the effect remains after 9 months. However, the average lip treatment only lasts for about 6 months due to their higher blood flow.

The great thing about Juvéderm is that you can replenish your natural beauty whenever you feel the need. Unlike permanent implants, Juvéderm always leaves you a choice when the effect of the treatment has worn off. A touch-up can be performed any time you like after the previous treatment.

Furthermore, a face is constantly changing and beauty is best maintained by periodically evaluating the need for further treatment.

The treatment is performed by injecting Juvéderm under your skin. Since no pre-test is needed, the whole procedure takes less than 30 minutes. Pain relief is usually not needed, but many patients like the added comfort provided when we apply an anesthetic cream about an hour before the injections.

After our technician performs your Juvéderm injections, normal activities can be resumed immediately. Discomfort is minimal. The treatment site may have a little swelling, which may last a few hours. There may be some slight bruising which can be covered with make-up. Depending on the area treated, correction usually lasts from 6 – 9 months.

If you have been wondering how to get rid of your wrinkles but aren’t ready for surgery, Juvéderm may be the answer.
