Botox & Fillers
The Botox Cosmetic ProcedureBotox cosmetic injections are performed without anesthesia because it is virtually painless. Only a very small sting is felt when the injections are made. The effects are not permanent and may need to be repeated two to three times per year to retain the effects. Research has suggested, however, that long term use of the injections leads to a longer duration of each treatment's effect. Patients over the age of 65 may not experience such dramatic results. Botox cosmetic is only useful in treating expression lines and cannot be used to repair sagging skin caused by aging.
Post Injection InformationAfter the injection patients may experience slight bruising around the area that quickly fades. Normal activities can be performed immediately. Possible side effects are temporary weakness of nearby muscles or in rare cases an eyelid may droop. Botox cosmetic is completely reversible so any side effect is only a temporary condition. The doctor will explain all risks associated at the time of your consultation.
Juvederm Ultra Plus XcJuvederm is a a gel that is injected into the skin that adds volume to the lips and lifts up and fills out wrinkles and folds. Juvederm is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance already present in your body that provides volume and fullness to the skin. Juvederm temporarily diminishes depressions and acts as a filler for a period of time, often longer than that of collagen. It is not a replacement for botox, since it does not alter the muscle activity. While there exist patient differences, most patients experience an improved effect for up to twelve months. Repeating the juvederm within twelve months is recommended to maintain the effect and diminish wrinkling.
Post InjectionAfter your injection, keep your head elevated for one hour. Ice packs may be used for one to two days for pain and swelling. Additionally, advil may be used for discomfort and swelling. The amount and location of juvederm injected corresponds with your initial desires. Treatment is performed on a unit dose of prepackaged syringes of 0.4 or 0.8 cc's. Syringes cannot be stored. The number of syringes used determines the cost of the treatment. While every effort is made to optimize results, patients may experience incomplete results. If one's treated region does not have adequate resolution, retreatment may be necessary. A large portion of the cost of the procedure lies in the cost of the material. Therefore, retreatment of regions will be charged at the normal rates. Every effort is made to minimize the cost of the procedure and the need for retreatment.

NeocutisThrough years of research, physicians discovered fetal skin has a unique ability to heal wounds without scarring. Inspired by this, medical researchers at the university hospital of lausanne, switzerland created a biotechnology process to extract the rich proteins responsible for scarless wound healing from cultured fetal skin cells. A dedicated cell bank was established for developing new skin treatments using a single biopsy of fetal skin. Originally established for wound healing and burn treatments, today this same cell bank also provides a lasting supply of cells for producing neocutis proprietary skin care ingredient processed skin cell proteins (psp). Psp provides the most complete and balanced combination of human growth factors and cytokines currently available.

Realistic Goals of Chemical Peels
Chemical Peels Can Correct Actinic (Sun) Damage.
They Can Reduce Mild Scarring.
You Can Experience a Reduction or Eradication of Your Wrinkles.
Improvement of Dark Skin Discoloration Is Possible.
Chemical Peels Can Remove Excessive / Stubborn Blackheads.
The Peel May Temporarily Reduce Excessive Skin Oils.
Unrealistic Goals of Chemical Peels
It Cannot Remove or Reduce the Appearance of Blood Vessels on the Skin.
It Is Impossible to Truly Change Pore Diameter. However, by Removing Blackheads, the Pores May Actually Appear Less Pronounced After Treatment.
This Is Not a Procedure to Get Rid of Keloidal Types of Scars.
Chemical Peels Are Not a Face Lift.
The Four Levels of Peeling
The Ingredient and Concentration Obviously Play a Very Big Role in Determining the Ultimate Depth of the Chemical Peel. However, Other Variables Can Make a Difference Such as Whether a Pre-Peel De-Fatting Prep Was Performed, the Amount of Chemical Applied, and the Length of Time the Chemical Was Allowed to Stay on the Skin. Another Important Factor Is Which Area Will Be Treated. The Variations in Skin Thickness Can Affect the Ultimate Peel Outcome. For Instance, the Face Usually Heals Far More Rapidly and Typically Experiences Far Fewer Complications (Such as Discoloration, Scar Formation and Infection) Than Areas Such as the Backs of the Hands or Neck.
Chemical Peeling Agents That Perform Mild or Moderate Peels Typically Provide a Safer Peel That Has Less Associated Long-Term Side Effects. These Peels Work on the Epidermis and Possibly the Most Superficial Portion of the Dermis (Known as the Papillary Dermis).
Deeper Peels Go Midway Into the Dermal Layer (Into the Reticular Dermis), Almost Invariably Leaving a Permanently Lighter Skin Tone. Instead of Being Able to Tan as in the Past, This Lighter Skin Often Freckles Instead. These Deeper Peels Should Not Be Undertaken Lightly, and You Need to Make Sure in Advance That the Peel Technique Will Be Feathered Into the Scalp Line and Performed Down the Neck, Possibly Even the Décolletage, or You May Find That You Have a Highly Noticeable Line Demarcating Your Original Skin Tone and the New One That Is on the Face.
Types of Peels
Natural Skin Peels
Herbal Enzyme PeelThis peel is recommended for the treatment of telangiectasia, rosacea, redness, and pustules. A blend of pancreatic enzymes and nourishing herbs, the herbal enzyme peel gently exfoliates dead skin cells, opens up clogged pores, soothes, heals, and rejuvenates sensitive skin.
C+ Enzyme PeelThis peel is recommended for the treatment of dehydrated and prematurely aging skin. This potent anti-oxidant peel repairs sun and other environmental damage while protecting the skin against free radicals. The topical vitamin c contained in the c+ enzyme peel also contributes to collagen synthesis for a firmer and fresher looking skin.
Pumpkin Enzyme PeelThis peel is recommended for the treatment of blackheads, acne, and fines lines on non-sensitive skin. A combination of alpha-hydroxy fruit acid, vitamin a, as well as enzymes and anti-oxidants from fermented pumpkin, the pumpkin enzyme peel dissolves oil, removes dead skin cells, stimulates new cell growth, and protects the skin from free radicals.
Glycolic Acid PeelThis peel is recommended for the treatment of blackheads, acne, hyper pigmentation, and fine lines on non-sensitive skin. Glycolic acid is a natural component found in sugar cane and fermented fruits, used to dissolve oil, which is responsible for dead cell build-up on the skin surface. Glycolic acid also improves skin hydration and strengthen collagen structures in the skin.
Lactic Acid PeelThis peel is recommended for the treatment of fine lines, wrinkles, dehydrated, and dry skin. Naturally found in sour milk, but also a component of blood, muscle, and skin, lactic acid is used to exfoliate and moisturize. It gently dissolves dead cells while increasing the ability of the skin to hold water, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Salicylic Acid PeelThis peel is recommended for the treatment of blackheads, acne, oily skin, fine lines, and age spots. Salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy acid derived from the wintergreen leaf, used to stimulate cell production and control bacterial growth. The salicylic acid peel dissolves hardened dead skin cells while controlling oil secretion.
Medical Grade Peels
Jessner Chemical PeelRecommended for the treatment of acne, hyper pigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles on non-sensitive skin. This peel contains lactic and salicylic acids, as well as resorcinol.
Non-Resorcinol Jessner Chemical PeelRecommended for the treatment of acne, hyper pigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles on ethnic and sensitive skin. This peel contains lactic, salicylic, and glycolic acids.
Tca Chemical PeelRecommended for the treatment of deep epidermal-dermal acne, hyper pigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles. This peel contains trichloroacetic acid. Chemical peels can really make a difference in the skin's texture and take years off your appearance. They can also make for a nice benign maintenance treatment that maximizes your rejuvenation regimen. Whatever the reason you are considering a chemical peel, follow your doctor's directions carefully. Doing so will maximize your benefits and minimize problems down the road.
Before Your Chemical PeelSometimes retin a - a prescription medication derived from vitamin a - is used to pre-treat the skin. This thins out the skin's surface layer, allowing the tca solution to penetrate more deeply and evenly. If your skin won't tolerate retin-a pre-treatment, an aha cream may be used instead. Hydroquinone, a bleaching agent, is sometimes used in conjunction with retin-a or aha pre-treatment, especially if you have blotchy skin areas or pigmentation problems. You may have to spend a month or more in the pre-treatment phase before the doctor will schedule your actual peel.
After Your TreatmentAfter a peel, it is common to experience some temporary flaking or scaling, redness and dryness of the skin. However, these conditions will disappear as the skin adjusts to treatment. The deeper the peel the more dramatic immediate effects are apparent, however there is a longer recovery period consisting of peeling skin, redness, hyper pigmentation and possible swelling and discomfort.
Getting Back to WorkWith a light to medium peel, the temporary redness, flaking and dryness that you experience will not prevent you from working or engaging in your normal activities. A fresher and improved skin texture will result with continued treatments. Remember, protecting your skin from the sun is also important following these mild acid peels. Uva and uvb protection should be used every day. Improvements from light to medium peels may be very subtle at first. You may detect a healthier glow to your skin. With continued treatments, you will notice a general improvement in the texture of your skin.
