Aesthetic Procedures

Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. They occur most frequently in areas exposed to the sun, such as the face, neck, back of the hands and forearms. Over time, skin gets thinner, drier and less elastic. Ultimately, this causes wrinkles – either fine lines or deep furrows. In addition to sun exposure, premature aging of the skin is associated with smoking, heredity and skin type (higher incidence among people with fair hair, blue-eyes and light skin).

Treatment for wrinkles runs the gamut from topical creams and moisturizers to cosmetic procedures. The most common medical treatments are:

  • Alpha-hydroxy acids, preparations made from “fruit acids” that produce subtle improvements in the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Antioxidants, creams consisting of Vitamins A, C and E and beta-carotene that improves the appearance of wrinkles and provides some additional sun protection.
  • Moisturizers, which temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Vitamin A Acid, which helps alleviate some of the signs of aging, including mottled pigmentation (e.g., liver spots), roughness and wrinkling.

Cosmetic procedures that we specialize in include:

  • Botox
  • Chemical Peels
  • Fillers
  • Permanent Makeup

Cosmetic Room

Botox

Botox injections for correction of wrinkle lines such as frown lines and crow’s-feet have become the standard to which any cosmetic procedure should measure up. By injecting botulinum toxin (which is completely safe for use without any harmful effects), wrinkle lines get corrected within three to four days and the effect lasts for three to four months.

Chemical peels

By using various chemicals such as salicylic acid and trichloroacetic acid (Medium Peel), wrinkles caused by sun damage, aging, and hereditary factors can often be reduced. The degree of improvement varies with the depth of the peel and the number of treatments received.

Intense Pulse Light (IPL)

Removal of vascular and pigmented lesions, including birthmarks and scars

Using Intense Pulsed Light, birthmarks, dilated veins, other blood vessel lesions, and undesirable pigmentation can be removed. This is a completely non-invasive procedure.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a laser — an intense, pulsating beam of light — to remove unwanted hair. During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth.

Fillers

Proven to be effective and safe as a filler substance in correcting wrinkle lines and scars, especially around the mouth.

The best prevention for wrinkles is to keep the skin moisturized and use sunscreen and sunblock to prevent additional damage from the sun.
