BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults younger than 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).
Also known as a forehead lift, a brow lift minimizes the creases that develop across the forehead, or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose; improves what are commonly referred to as frown lines; and repositions a low or sagging brow.
Chemical peel uses a chemical solution to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers. It is helpful for those individuals with facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation.
A physical defect present in a baby at birth, irrespective of whether the defect is caused by a genetic factor or by prenatal events that are not genetic. In a malformation, the development of a structure is arrested, delayed, or misdirected early in embryonic life and the effect is permanent.
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure which is performed by our doctors in order to improve the function (reconstructive surgery) or the appearance (cosmetic surgery) of your human nose. Rhinoplasty is also commonly called "nose reshaping" or "nose job". Rhinoplasty can be performed to meet aesthetic goals or for reconstructive purposes to correct trauma, birth defects or breathing problems. Rhinoplasty can be combined with other surgical procedures such as chin augmentation to enhance the aesthetic results.
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty or eye lift) is a popular cosmetic plastic surgery to remove excess skin, fat or muscle from droppy upper and lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty improves baggy skin under the eyes, sinking upper eyelids or drooping eyelashes that impair vision. The surgery can also treat a medical condition called ptosis (drooping eyelid), which is caused by poor muscle tone or nerve damage. Ptosis causes the eyelids to hang very low and block vision.
Facial implantation or augmentation is done for reconstructive or cosmetic purposes. It has become increasingly popular for the "normal" everyday person to seek facial augmentation to remove or improve existing acne scars and facial lines or to enhance a specific facial area.
Facial nerve denervation and paralysis imposes significant psychological and functional impairment. Facial paralysis can inhibit and mar facial expression, communication, symmetrical smile, eye protection, and oral competence. Myriad modalities and stratagems exist for each patient; the physician must accurately evaluate and examine the patient and determine the etiology, duration, and the scale of the paralysis. Understanding facial nerve anatomy with precise assessment of the patient's paralysis and health status dictates the potential for recovery and the most appropriate reconstructive scheme.
Fat transfers have been used for more than 100 years to fill in facial flaws such as hollowed cheeks and sunken eyes or indented scars. Fat transfers are considered the traditional method for surgically rounding out the edges of a small localized area of the body as compared to the newer body implant approach in which implants are used to produce a more shapely appearance required by a larger area of the body.
Lip augmentation enhances the contour and fullness of lips for a younger, healthier appearance. Well-defined, plump lips are subject to sagging as we age. The colored portion of the lips thins out and the arch of the upper lip (cupid's bow) flattens. This problem is especially noticeable in women with naturally thin lips. Lip augmentation is appropriate for patients who wish to enhance the lips they are born with and for patients who wish to restore the lips aging takes away.
The ideal way to achieve wrinkle reduction is by replenishing lost volume. With RADIESSE® wrinkle filler, you welcome back your own natural collagen to smooth out the signs of aging. That's because RADIESSE wrinkle filler's unique formulation stimulates collagenesis - the production of new collagen - which results in increased volume for natural looking wrinkle correction that may last a year or more in many patients. It's also why more and more cosmetic surgeons, estheticians, and other medical professionals are choosing RADIESSE wrinkle filler for long-lasting facial rejuvenation.
While some of these facial rejuvenation procedures involve surgery, like facelifts and dermabrasion, more and more minimally-invasive procedures have emerged. These procedures require no incisions and may not require anesthesia, plus these patients experience minimal, or no downtime at all. Minimally-invasive procedures are gaining in popularity.
Spider veins, or broken capillaries (telangiectasia), sun damaged skin, age spots, rosacea, and many other blemishes are very common nuisances for both men and women. And, to make matters worse, conventional makeup generally does not conceal these blemishes very well. Our doctors can remove these blemishes for you. Please call to make an appointment today.
Restylane is injected under wrinkles and aging lines of the face such as the nasolabial folds, melomental folds, "crow's feet" and forehead wrinkles. It may also be used for filling aging-related facial hollows and "orbital troughs" (under and around the eyes). The process has a fast recovery time of 2 to 3 days. However, it is not permanent; reapplication is recommended approximately every six months.
