Injectables

Injectables are products that are injected into specific areas of the skin to produce a desired cosmetic result. There are many offered at our practice and many can be combined to provide you with optimal results. Schedule a cosmetic consultation with one of our physicians to discuss the best treatment options for you.

Dysport™, Botox®, & Botox Cosmetic®

Improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines with just a few injections of DYSPORT™ or BOTOX COSMETIC®. Both work in a similar fashion to stop the signal from the nerve to the facial muscles to temporarily minimize lines of aging. The effect can last months and look natural. The untreated facial muscles still contract normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas. Typical treatment areas include the forehead, between the eyebrows, and lines around the eyes. Dysport™ and Botox Cosmetic® can prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements, they can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking younger and refreshed. The effect can last months and look natural

BOTOX® may also be useful for excessive sweating. Talk to us about whether BOTOX® can help you.

 
 
KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area.

 
The RESTYLANE® family of products are comprised of a synthetic gel made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is found throughout your body. Available as Restylane Silk® (for fine very lines and lips), Restylane® (for small lines) and Perlane® (for deep wrinkles and folds), these products are designed to volumize wrinkles and folds on the face, sculpt lips and shape facial contours. It is a clear,. It carries little risk of allergic reaction. The most common areas for treatment is the nasolabial folds (the crease from the nostril to the corner of your mouth). With its unique ability to bind with water, the active ingredient, hyaluronic acid, attracts water and also stimulates collagen formation, thereby filling area to give a smooth, refined look. Results can last for many months, providing a lasting fill to fine lines.
 
SCULPTRA® AESTHETIC works subtly and gradually over time for a more youthful-looking appearance. Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sculptra Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging.1-3 Sculptra Aesthetic is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems as a one-time treatment regimen of up to four injection sessions that are scheduled about three weeks apart.

Laser Resurfacing

The CONTOUR TRL™ (Tunable Resurfacing Laser) is a full-field skin resurfacing solution, capable of a wide variety of treatment options. What makes the Sciton resurfacing laser truly unique among other resurfacing lasers is TRL technology, which gives your doctor control over the depth of ablation and coagulation with micron precision. This means that the Contour TRL technology makes it easy for your physician to ablate (remove) tissue as shallow or deep as you like, which is great for problems such as deep wrinkles and stubborn acne scars. The tuneability minimizes suboptimal treatments, as well as undesired side effects like hypopigmentation, sustained erythema, and prolonged recovery times. The Contour TRL can be used to treat the following conditions:

  • Mild to deep wrinkles
  • Persistent deep “ripples” around the mouth and eyes
  • Certain types of acne scars, post-traumatic, and surgical scars
  • Lax skin in all areas (including upper and lower blephs)
  • Poor skin tone/texture
 

HALO™ is a hybrid fractional laser delivers both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths . The advantage is radiant skin without the downtime.

Over time, your skin can lose its youthful glow due to sun exposure and your body’s natural aging process. As a result, your body may develop sun spots, fine lines, and lose that natural healthy glow. Previous lasers couldn’t effectively remove this damage, because the treatment was either too shallow or too deep. Halo eliminates years of damage by precisely targeting the right depth. Halo restores the luminous glow you had when you were younger.

Get that Glow with Halo:

  • Customizable treatment to precisely target skin damage
  • Improvement in the appearance of tone, texture, fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduces pore size and increases reflectivity and glow
  • Flexibility in treatment levels and downtime

Leg Vein Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy uses injection of a solution into a superficial and medium-sized leg veins to damage the lining of the vessel, thereby causing the vein to close. The procedure is done in-office. A typical treatment session lasts about 20 minutes, however several treatments may be needed depending on the extent of varicosities present. Mild burning or discomfort may occur, which is mitigated by the localized use of ice packs. Compression stocking use is strongly encouraged following the treatment for 3-4 days and is worn only during the day and removed at bedtime. Results are seen as early as three weeks after treatment.
