Cosmetic Dermatology Services

  • Neurotoxin Injections (Botox and Dysport) help fix fine and deeper lines on the forehead, frown area and crows feet.

    BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.

    Dysport® is a prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally. It’s the lines that are minimized, not your expressions.
  • Hyaluronic Acid Injectable Fillers (Restylane and Juvederm) help with deeper lines and areas of volume loss associated with normal aging, sun damage, and weight loss.

    The Restylane® line of hyaluronic acid fillers provides natural-looking results by smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds, providing subtle lip enhancement and smoothing the lines around the mouth, and adding lift and volume to the cheeks.

    JUVÉDERM® is the #1 selling collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the US. Each product in the collection of fillers adds volume to a different area of the face to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, or plump the lips. The results are subtle and long-lasting.
  • Microneedling (Dermapen) is used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, photodamage, stretch marks, old scars (surgical, burns, etc), acne scars. Using this minimally invasive technique with the goal to stimulate the skin, soften, correct and improve any of the above issues.

    Dermapen® microneedling is the leader in patient safety, comfort and treatment results. As we grow old, our skin ages and becomes loose and less elastic. The main reason for this is the reduction in fibroblast cells, which are building blocks of collagen proteins that help keep our cells strong and connected. Aging results in wrinkles and sagging, which makes our skin appear very dull—but there is a way to combat this process through microneedling.

    Dermapen microneedling is used to treat an array of skin defects, including:
    • Wrinkles
    • Stretch marks
    • Scars
    • Acne scarring
    • Skin tone
    • Fine lines
    • Loose skin
    • Large pores
    • Discoloration
