As time passes, our skin shows the natural, inevitable signs of aging - wrinkles, sagging, and sun damage. Cosmetic dermatology means that you don't have to live with those effects anymore. Non-surgical cosmetic procedures available at our practice allow you to smooth lines and wrinkles, raise sunken areas, reduce blemishes and scarring, tighten sagging skin, treat spider and varicose veins, and generally produce fresh, glowing skin so you can look as young and rejuvenated as you feel.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a highly purified protein injected into the skin to relax the muscles that cause some kinds of wrinkles. While BOTOX® can treat certain medical conditions, such as excessive sweating, it is most commonly used for cosmetic purposes, primarily to reduce wrinkles on the face and neck. BOTOX® injections are relatively painless, as the needle used is significantly smaller than those used for other injectable fillers.
The best candidates for BOTOX® are men and women seeking an enhanced appearance with fewer wrinkles. In addition, it is important that those seeking treatment are in good physical health, are not pregnant or nursing, and do not have a neuromuscular disorder. People seeking BOTOX® injections should have realistic expectations regarding this procedure's abilities and should discuss their desired goals with their doctor beforehand.
BOTOX® injections are administered by a qualified physician using a very fine needle. The procedure only takes a few minutes and requires no anesthetic. Day-to-day activities can be resumed immediately afterwards. Wrinkles begin to fade within 24 hours, with continued improvement over the next 5 days.
Side effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic are rare and are usually mild and temporary. The most common side effects are headaches and temporary redness or bruising of the skin at the site of injection. Any risk of complication can be reduced by choosing a qualified and experienced physician.
Dysport® is an FDA-approved injection used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles in the forehead. Similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport is injected directly into the site of wrinkles to prevent the underlying muscles from contracting. Dysport injections are made from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, the same protein used in Botox injections.
Dysport injections are ideal for nearly anyone wishing to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face and restore a younger, more refreshed appearance. The injections are administered directly into the facial muscles that cause frown lines and other wrinkles; these injections are generally painless, with no need for anesthesia. Treatment sessions typically take less 15 minutes, and are administered at six-week intervals. Three to five injections are usually required to achieve desired results.
Dysport injections are generally safe, although there are certain risks associated with any procedure. These risks include soreness and bruising for several hours after treatment, an allergic reaction or ptosis (droopiness of the eyelid). The risk of complications can be reduced by choosing a qualified physician for your procedure.

Microneedling works to create controlled-micro injuries to stimulate the body's natural wound-healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. This helps to stimulate collagen production and remodel scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact. Microneedling improves acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, appearance of pore size, and overall improvement to skin texture. SkinPen is the first microneedling device with results and safety cleared by the FDA.
