Winkle relaxers like Botox® and Dysport® are popular cosmetic treatments used to diminish deep frown lines and crows feet that develop around the eyes as we age. Using tiny needles, Botox is injected into the affected areas of the skin and results are usually seen within 3-7 days. The treatment is performed during a single office visit and patients can resume their daily activities almost immediately. Results last 3-4 months. The photos show before and after botox treatment.
Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm® and Restylane® help to restore lost fullness to the face, lips, and hands. They can also help to lift the brow or a down-turned mouth, as well as diminish the appearance of scars. Advances in filler techniques have made them increasingly popular. The results are immediate and can last a year or more. The procedure is performed during a single office visit and there is virtually no downtime. The photos show before and after dermal fillers.
This laser-like procedure involves the use of specific wavelengths of light to destroy superficial flaws on the skin such as broken capillaries, sunspots or age spots as well as the facial redness seen with rosacea. It is also effective in treating some types of acne. IPL therapy typically requires several treatments and results may take some time. Patients will require follow-up treatments once or twice a year to maintain results. The photos show before and after intense pulsed light treatment.
Microneedling is a non-surgical procedure with limited downtime and little pain used to treat acne scars, large pores, fine lines and wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation. The procedure involves puncturing the skin with thin needles to create tiny wounds, triggering the skin’s repair mechanisms and stimulating collagen production. Best results are achieved over a series of about 6 monthly treatments. The photos show before and after microneedling.
Sclerotherapy is the most common treatment for leg veins, primarily spider and small varicose veins. This simple office procedure uses small amounts of a glycerin solution injected into the veins to reduce the red/purple appearance. Typical treatments take 20 minutes and patients are instructed to wear special stockings to help maximize results afterwards. Spider veins usually disappear in 3-6 weeks. Varicose veins take 3-4 months. For best results, 2-3 treatments may be required. The photos show before and after sclerotherapy.
