Cosmetic Dermatology

Our center offers an extensive selection of cosmetic services that can be coordinated with your medical skin care for healthy, youthful skin.

Physician Performed Services

Neurotoxins: Botox® / Dysport® / Xeomin® / Jeuveau®

Neurotoxins produce a dramatic elimination or smoother appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face. Treatments are quick 10 to 15-minute nonsurgical procedures performed by a physician to produce results within one to two weeks that last three to six months. This procedure is
especially effective for treating even the toughest wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes resulting from muscle activity. By relaxing muscle activity, neurotoxins are also effective at preventing wrinkles from developing. Ask your provider which neurotoxin is
right for you. Pricing provided at consultation.

Dermal Fillers: Restylane® / Radiesse® / Juvederm® / Belotero®

Dermal fillers are used to restore volume loss, correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles, soften folds and enhance facial contours. Dermal fillers can also be used to add fullness to the lips. Restylane®, Juvederm® and Belotero® are hyaluronic acid fillers and Radiesse® is a calcium
hydroxylapatite filler. Dermal fillers provide a smoother, more youthful appearance immediately after injection and results last up to six to twenty-four months depending on the filler. Consultation with your provider prior to the treatment is recommended to discuss which filler is right
for you. Pricing provided at consultation.

Sculptra®

Sculptra® is a facial injectable treatment that works with your body to help stimulate collagen growth to improve shallow to deep folds and other facial wrinkles caused by loss of volume. A series of three sessions is recommended and are spaced approximately 3 weeks apart. Sculptra
gradually replaces lost collagen allowing results to emerge more discreetly and results can last up to 25 months. Consultation with your provider is recommended to determine if you are a good candidate for Sculptra®. Pricing provided at consultation.

Obagi Blue Peel®

Obagi Blue Peel® is a medium depth TCA (trichloroacetic) peel performed by a physician. This peel is specially designed to significantly improve blemishes, acne scars, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, melasma and sun damage. Skin peeling will resolve in 5-7 days and the appearance of the

Kybella®

Kybella® is an injection treatment that destroys fat cells to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat) to improve your profile. Results are seen after 2 to 6 treatments. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer accumulate fat so additional
treatments are not needed. Schedule your complimentary consultation in the Cosmetic Skin Care Center to find out if Kybella is right for you.  Pricing provided at consultation.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy can effectively treat small varicose veins and spider veins on the legs. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a saline solution directly into a vein causing the vein to collapse and eventually fade. Multiple treatments may be needed to achieve desired results. Physician consultation is
