Cosmetic Dermatology

As time passes our skin shows the natural, inevitable signs of aging – wrinkles, sagging, sun damage. But you can counteract those effects with several cosmetic procedures available at our practice, including BOTOX® and injectable fillers such as collagen and Restylane® to smooth lines and wrinkles and raise sunken areas.

BOTOX®

BOTOX® Cosmetic is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. It is injected under the skin into areas surrounding the eyes, forehead and mouth to smooth crow’s feet, frown and worry lines, and lines on the neck. Made from a purified protein, BOTOX® injections block nerve impulses, weakening muscles to relax wrinkles and give the face a rejuvenated look. BOTOX® may also be useful for excessive sweating of the underarms and hands.

Dysport ®

DYSPORT ® is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults less than 65 years of age. Made of a protein similar to that used in BOTOX® Cosmetic, DYSPORT ®  has a slightly faster onset of action and works in a similar fashion to relax facial muscles and smooth wrinkles.

Restylane®, Perlane ®

The most recent and exciting development in wrinkle reduction is the introduction of Restylane® and other dermal fillers. These naturally occurring substances can be used to fill in unwanted facial lines but have the potential to last much longer than the first generation collagens.They can also be used to sculpt and shape lips.
