BOTOX Cosmetic | Juvéderm | Restylane and Perlane | Chemical Peels | Sclerotherapy
Botox injections are the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure. These minimally invasive injections reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. Lines between the eyes, crow's feet, and forehead lines are commonly treated with very little downtime. When injected into the skin, Botox blocks specific muscles from the repetitive actions that cause fine lines and wrinkles. This action leads to a younger and more refreshed appearance. After treatment, the appearance of wrinkles begins to improve within a few days. The full effect can take up to one week. Botox is safely absorbed and will last on average about four months.
BOTOX® for Hyperhidrosis
Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is dependent on a chemical neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. Botox acts by blocking the release of acetylcholine. Hyperhidrosis is commonly seen in the underarms, hands and feet. Botox injections into these areas safely reduces sweating for six month or longer. Contrary to many oral medications and surgery, Botox injections for hyperhidrosis have minimal side effects. There are no effects on sweating elsewhere or on body temperature regulation. Botox is a great treatment for hyperhidrosis patients that are irritated or sensitive to antiperspirants.

Restylane® and Perlane®
Restylane injections replenish hyaluronic acid in the skin. Hyaluronic acid binds water and keeps the skin healthy, elastic and fresh. Restylane works by stimulating collagen production and improving skin elasticity. This in turn restores volume, improves facial wrinkles, and gives a more relaxed appearance. Restylane has a long safety and efficacy record. No pretesting is required and allergic reactions are rare. Avoid using aspirin, non-
Our office uses trichloroacetic acid concentrations that are only available through physicians. These chemicals exfoliate dead, sun damaged skin and improve underlying collagen production.

Superficial chemical peels have minimal downtime. 70% glycolic peels will keep your skin smooth, help with dark spots, and help unclog your pores. These peels can be done at 2-
Sclerotherapy is the standard treatment for varicose and spider veins. A special sclerosing solution is injected into the diseased vein, which then collapses and is gradually absorbed by the body. By the end of the treatment program, the veins are less visible on the skin surface. Sclerotherapy usually also relieves symptoms associated with enlarged veins and prevents further complications.
