Dynamic wrinkles are caused by contractions of the delicate underlying facial muscles every time you smile, laugh or frown. The more emotion you show, the deeper these wrinkles and lines are likely to be. While you may have earned every one of your smile lines, you don't have to show them anymore.
Now, thanks to a new use for an approved drug, dynamic lines can be dramatically softened. The procedure known as cosmetic denervation uses Botox® or Dysport® injections to improve the appearance of forehead worry lines and frown lines, eye laugh lines and crow's feet or other dynamic wrinkles. Newer techniques even allow for gentle facial "shaping" around the mouth and eyes utilizing Botox® or Dysport.
Botox® & Dysport blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. They relax the muscles so they do not contract. The contraction of the muscle is the culprit causing the wrinkles. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected.
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers – Restylane®, Juvederm and Perlane®
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally present component of connective tissue whose function is to cushion and lubricate. Hyaluronic acid helps the body to lock moisture in the dermis which results in a more youthful appearance. The hyaluronic acid molecules lock in moisture because they bind many times their weight in water. Both natural and injected hyaluronic acid will degrade in your body over time. Hyaluronic acid injections help to achieve a fuller look.
Additionally, there is a very low potential for allergic reaction because hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that exists in the human body.
Latisse is the only FDA approved prescription treatment for inadequate eyelashes for growing them longer, thicker, fuller and darker.
Laser Skin Resurfacing with the Fractionated Laser
Pixel Perfect is an aesthetic laser treatment that lifts away years from your face. It can help reverse the early signs of aging, and helps counteract years of sun damage or acne scarring. It provides noticeable results, often in as little as a single treatment.
Pixel Perfect works by creating thousands of microscopic perforations, but the skin around each of these perforations remains intact. This allows your skin’s top layer to heal from the edge of these tiny holes very rapidly.
You’ll see dramatic improvement in the tone and texture of your skin. Many patients choose Pixel Perfect because it:
- Clears sun-damaged skin
- Smoothes fine lines and wrinkles
- Shrinks the appearance of pores
- Fills in acne scars
- Blends uneven pigmentation
Photorejuvenation: Skin Rejuvenation with AFT Pulsed Light
Actual Treatment (Untouched Photos)
As we age, our skin reflects damage from the sun, the elements and wear & tear of daily life. In response, we often seek aesthetic procedures to restore a fresh and youthful appearance. Photorejuvenation-one of the most popular cosmetic procedures today- provides the ideal answer. Removing age spots, most brown pigmentation & redness due to broken capillaries, these treatments help ‘turn back the clock”. With almost no downtime, AFT technology is ideally suited for today’s active lifestyles.
In addition to these signs of photodamage and early aging, AFT rejuvenation improves dull complexions, uneven pigmentation and large pores, as well as rosacea.
Laser Hair Removal
Virtually pain-free hair removal technology.
While there are many methods to eliminate unwanted hair, very few can eliminate hair regrowth while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. And photoepilation is quickly becoming the most popular. Lasers and light sources use the principle of selective photothermolysis to eliminate hair and its potential regrowth without damaging the surrounding skin. During a laser hair removal treatment, light passes through the skin and is absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft. This absorption raises the temperature of the hair follicle and thermally destroys the cells responsible for regrowth. The attributes of the light (wavelength, pulse duration and power) are chosen to ensure damage to these cells and not to the rest of the skin.
The energy travels harmlessly through the epidermis and dermis until it strikes the hair follicle, which contains a dense, melanin-rich hair shaft and bulb.
The dark-colored melanin absorbs the light and rises slowly in temperature, destroying the hair-producing cells surrounding the follicle. Because the heat is not sustained, however, no damage occurs outside the follicle area.
What are spider veins?
Spider veins are most common in women in the age groups 30-50. This has been related to the hormone estrogen and pregnancy. Spider veins look like a network pattern in a circular fashion. These light purple veins usually appear in a lattice pattern and are completely harmless.
What is sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a microinjection procedure to treat spider veins. The procedure involves injection of a sterile solution (called a sclerosing solution) into the small veins using a very fine, thin needle. This solution irritates the vein lining causing it to undergo fibrosis and eventually disappear. Multiple veins can be injected at each session.
Microdermabrasion is a state of the art technology used to help refine and smooth the skin. Often referred to as skin rejuvenation for its ability to minimize the early signs of aging, sun exposure, and other facial imperfections. The gentle abrade and exfoliate the superficial top layer of the skin. At the same time, the damaged skin cells are vacuumed away, revealing smoother and younger looking skin. An added benefit of MDA is the stimulation of collaged production beneath the surface of the skin, thus improving our skin tone.
