Minimally Invasive Procedures

This group of procedures includes those treatments which can be done with little to no down­time and no recovery, per se. These are usually performed in the office and require either no anesthesia, or perhaps something simple like a topical anesthetic. Examples of these procedures are injectables (i.e. Botox, Xeomin), fillers (i.e. Juvederm, Radiesse), peels (glycolic acid, TCA), dermaplaning and sclerotherapy (for spider veins).


Botox (trademarked term, Allergan)

Botox is a purified substance which, when injected, causes paralysis of the facial musculature which causes wrinkles. It is usually used in the forehead, near the eyes, and occasionally, elsewhere on the face. It substantially reduces wrinkles in these areas and the effects last from 4-­6 months.


Dermal Fillers

Deeper wrinkles of the face can be treated with dermal fillers in order to smooth the area and improve their appearance. This type of treatment is typically used in the cheeks, next to the nose, and near the mouth, lips and chin.


What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel uses a gentle acidic solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers. It is most frequently used on the face, but can be applied elsewhere (neck and hands, for instance).

A chemical peel is one of the simplest ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Sun exposure, acne, and aging can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred. A chemical peel can help improve: 

  • Acne or acne scars
  • Age related skin change
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Freckles
  • Rough skin and scaly patches
  • Sun-­damaged skin
  • Irregular skin pigmentation


What is dermabrasion? What is dermaplaning?

Dermabrasion and dermaplaning help to "refinish" the skin's top layers through a method of controlled surgical scraping. The treatments remove the superficial skin layers, giving the skin a smoother feel and appearance.

Dermabrasion is most often used to improve the look of facial skin left scarred by accidents, previous surgery, or to smooth out fine facial wrinkles. Dermaplaning is commonly used ​to improve the skin's texture and to decrease the appearance of fine wrinkles.

Both dermabrasion and dermaplaning can be performed on small areas of skin or on the entire face. They can be used alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as facelift, scar revision, or chemical peel.


Spider Vein Treatment

Spider veins are a very common cosmetic issue for many people. The purple/black veins can be very noticeable and typically affect the legs. Fortunately, they can be treated, usually with vein sclerosis techniques, which permanently resolves the problem (it does not, however, prevent new spider veins from appearing).
