Aesthetic Medicine Q & A

What types of wrinkles do you treat with Botox?

Botox is a highly purified form of botulinum toxin that temporarily relaxes muscles. This means that Botox eliminates or dramatically diminishes the wrinkles caused by muscles pulling on skin, including:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead creases
  • Bunny lines on your upper nose

Since only a few muscles are injected, you keep your natural appearance and expressions. You see the results in 24-48 hours, and you have a rejuvenated appearance for up to four months.* After your results start to fade, you can get another Botox treatment.

How do facial fillers diminish lines and wrinkles?

After a facial filler, also called a dermal filler, is injected, the ingredients in the filler immediately plump up the treated area. Additionally, some facial fillers contain ingredients that stimulate collagen production.

There are many types of facial fillers with each one formulated for a specific purpose. As a group, these products:

  • Diminish frown lines
  • Diminish marionette lines
  • Lift cheeks
  • Add midface volume
  • Augment lips
  • Soften smoker’s lines

Facial fillers produce immediate results, and your new appearance lasts six months to two years, depending on the product used for your treatment.* Like Botox, you can get another treatment as soon as your results start to fade.

What other aesthetic treatments do you offer?

We offer a variety of effective aesthetic treatments, including:

HydraFacial™

HydraFacial is an exceptional facial treatment that deep cleans, exfoliates, hydrates, and infuses your skin with nourishing serums that target your skin problems — all during one session.

HydraFacial improves problems such as:

  • Oily skin
  • Dry, dull skin
  • Facial redness
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Clogged pores
  • Brown spots and age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Your treatment only takes 30 minutes, then you can return to your day with glowing, refreshed skin.

Chemical peels

Chemical peels remove old and blemished skin. As fresh skin grows in, your complexion is literally renewed and imperfections disappear.

The strength of the chemical solution applied to your skin determines whether your chemical peel simply exfoliates the surface or penetrates deeper to remove multiple layers of skin.

Chemical peels treat the same skin problems as HydraFacial, but medium and deep chemical peels produce better and longer-lasting results. For example, a surface exfoliation can minimize fine lines and wrinkles, while a deep peel smooths away moderate-to-deep wrinkles and scars.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates your skin using an instrument that sprays a fine mist of abrasive particles.
