Botox for Wrinkles
Botulinum toxin A is a protein that is injected into the skin that prevents full contracture of particular small muscle groups. Cosmetically, this is used to diminish and soften wrinkles on the face. This can be used for wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyes (called the glabella), around the eyes (often referred to as crow's feet), on the nose, and even around the mouth.

Chemical (Glycolic Acid) Peels
Glycolic Acid peels are used to lessen fine lines and brown spots from sun damage. Acne might also be improved with glycolic acid peels. Typically, several peels spaced over a few months time are recommended to see the full benefit. We perform glycolic acid peels, starting with a lower strength peel and advancing to stronger peels as tolerated.

This method requires specialized training and personnel. Mohs' surgery is a highly successful method of treatment for skin cancer, resulting in the highest cure rates.

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)
PDT is a special treatment aimed primarily at treating precancerous skin lesions (Actinic Keratoses). This treatment has also demonstrated benefits for acne and photoaging from sun damage. The treatment is performed in our office. A medicine called levulan is applied to the treatment area then allowed to soak in for one hour. After one hour, the medicine is activated with a special light called a Blu-U light. Damaged skin begins to react within 24 hours. The skin becomes red and irritated. By 7-10 days, the skin peels and returns to normal. Only the damaged areas react. Typically, this treatment is repeated 3 times over a 2-3 month period. When used for actinic keratoses (pre-cancerous lesions), this treatment is typically covered by insurance.

Removal of Cysts
Cysts are benign growths in the skin that can be irritating and can even become secondarily infected with bacteria. Cysts can be easily removed surgically in our office under local anesthesia with minimal discomfort or downtime. Typically, sutures are used for cyst excisions.

Sclerotherapy / Spider Vein Treatment
This procedure is used for the treatment of unwanted leg veins (spider veins). Using a very small needle, a sclerosing agent is injected directly into the unwanted vein. The vein will then gradually diminish or disappear after 6-8 weeks. Often several treatments are needed to achieve your desired level of improvement.

Volumizers for Loss of Facial Fullness from Aging
Volumizers can be used alone or in conjunction with fillers and Botox for facial rejuvenation. As we age, we all lose volume from our faces, often over the cheeks, along the nasolabial fold, and on the chin. Each individual loses volume differently; that volume can be replaced with a filler such as Radiesse. Immediately after the injection, some visible correction may take place, however this fades as swelling diminishes over a period of two days. It takes approximately four weeks for your own collagen to rebuild around the volumizing agent. Typically, two to five treatments are needed to achieve the desired level of correction.
