Botox® Cosmetic Injections
To temporarily reduce or eliminate wrinkles, Botox® Cosmetic injections are provided to our patients. Botox® Cosmetic injections relax underlying muscles that are the cause of specific wrinkles. These treatments can address long, horizontal creases across the forehead, furrows between the eyebrows, and "crow's feet" at the corners of the eyes. Each series of injections is expected to last from three to six months. Injections may be used to reduce deep wrinkles, but also may be used in a preventative fashion to stop mild wrinkles from becoming worse.
Our clinic offers an introductory special price for those receiving Botox® with us for the first time.
Dermal fillers are provided to correct for deep lines, wrinkles, and depressions. Restylane® and Juvéderm® are injected into the skin to fill out facial contours and correct for these effects. Each uses an injectable substance called hyaluronate, which is similar to collagen. Restylane® was approved by the FDA in December, 2003. These treatments differ from collagen in that they last much longer, usually 6 to 12 months. Radiesse™ is also an excellent filler of deeper folds and lasts from one to two years. Adipose Injections is Adipose fat tissue taken from under the chin or tummy and placed in a needle, then injected into deep folds or depressions of the face. Some of the fat is absorbed by the body, while some may be permanent.
Leg Veins Sclerotherapy
Treatment of small red or purple veins (spider veins, or telangiectasias) of the legs is usually performed through sclerotherapy. During treatment, a solution is injected into the veins. This causes them to collapse and stay closed. Because veins that are collapsed are not visible, spider veins can be successfully targeted in this way. Numerous injections with a tiny needle are required, and more than one treatment in typically necessary. Larger ropey veins in the legs are typically treated by surgical removal (stripping).
Acne treatments may include an overall improved skin care regimen, topical medications, oral medications and photodynamic therapy. These treatments are very encouraging alternatives to Accutane acne treatment and are also helpful in addressing adult acne.
