Skin Treatment


Wrinkle Reduction

Today there are many options available to help to minimize facial wrinkles. These products can also be used to enhance the lips, or make them look fuller. The most well-known products are known as dermal (or skin) fillers. These dermal fillers are known by many names: Restylane, Juvederm, Hylaform and Sculptra.

Skin tests are not required prior to the use of these products. In general, there are no known adverse reactions, and are well-tolerated. They have replaced the once commonly used collagen. It is also possible to use your own fat (autologous fat transfer/graft) to minimize wrinkles or enhance your lips and naso-labial fold area. These products are used differently than botox (See botox).

Where used: The above listed dermal fillers can be used to minimize or enhance the lines around the lips, naso-labial fold (the area that goes from the corner of the lips to the edge of the nose).
What to expect: This procedure is done in the office. The results are immediate. Minimal swelling and/or bruising may occur, but in general, is gone within 1 to 2 days. In general, the effect of dermal fillers will last from 9 to 18 months, depending on the product used. When your own fat is used, the results are long lasting.


Injectable Fillers

Injectable fillers such as collagen or fat, can help fill in lines and creases that come naturally with age and the direct exposure to sunlight over the years. Fillers can help restore a smoother, more youthful looking appearance by plumping up creased and sunken areas of the face. Fillers can also be used to add fullness to the lips and cheeks.



Botox is a popular non-surgical injection that helps to reduce or eliminate unwanted lines and creases on the face. Botox can refresh a person’s look by giving the skin a smoother, younger, and more refreshed appearance. Botox is also used to help patients relieve migraines, headaches, and excessive sweating in addition to muscle spasms in the area of the neck and eyes.

All procedures are performed at either a fully licensed surgery center or hospital, under the care
of a board certified anesthesiologist.
