When it comes to skin fillers, many new exciting options exist to help diminish and fill smile line creases, marionette frown lines, thin and wrinkled lips, depressed scars, and hollowed out cheeks. Let us choose the appropriate injectable filler that may give temporary or long-lasting improvement. Our new line of fillers–Belotero®, Juvederm®, Restylane®, Volbella®, Vollure™, Voluma® XC and Sculptra®– offer many advantages over the old generation of collagen.

BOTOX® COSMETIC (Onabotulinum Toxin Type A)– Most expression-related wrinkles are due to repeated contractions of small muscles beneath the skin. BOTOX® temporarily weakens these muscles and the skin relaxes giving these areas a smoother, more rested appearance. BOTOX® is the preferred treatment for worry lines (between brows), forehead lines and crow’s feet. When appropriate, BOTOX® can lift the brows and diminish neck bands and smooth the upper lip and chin. You will see a noticeable improvement within four-to-14 days.
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure done by your healthcare provider to treat uncomplicated spider veins. Using a fine needle, saline solutions, or Sotradecol solutions are injected into unwanted spider veins or legs and thighs leading to resolution of these veins in two-to-four weeks. A series of treatments is necessary for ideal results. The solution we most commonly use is Asclera® (polidocanol). We also require our patients to wear support stockings for at least seven days afterwards.
Spider veins are very small and very fine red, blue, or purple veins. They are closer to the surface of the skin than varicose veins. They can look like a thin red line, tree branches, or spider webs. Spider veins can be found on the legs and face (although spider veins on the face are only treated via laser), and may cover a small or large area. The treatment involves the injection of a solution into the affected veins. Blue spider veins feed the red spider veins, so you need to treat the blue or purple spider veins first with sclerotherapy and then treat the non-clearing ones after with laser. You may have laser treatment as soon as three weeks after the sclerotherapy.
