COSMETIC SERVICES AND PRODUCTS

Cosmetic services include prescription and non-prescription products for purchase in the office for home use.

For treatment of photoaging, brown spots, and dark discoloration of the face products such as 4% hydroquinone retinoin and cosmetically elegant and effective premium sunscreens are available.

In-office procedures include injection of muscle relaxers generally to the upper one third of the face. This is our most popular procedure because it is quick, easy, effective, and affordable neuromodulators are used to soften skin lines about the eye and forehead (Gabella lines, crow's feet lines, forehead lines). Onset of action is 3-7 days and results generally last 3-5 months.

Injection of fillers are used to replace volume around the nose and mouth and thereby fill in deep creases and soften the lines by the cheeks and mouth (nasolabial lines and marionette lines). Anesthesia is achieved with numbing creams and xylocaine mixed in the filler. Topicalanesthesia cream applied to the treated areas for 40 minutes reduces the pain associated with these procedures. Ice applied to the treated area helps to reduce swelling and bruising followingthe procedure. Filler results last 6 months.

Standardized photography before and after the procedure objectively monitors progress and improvement with these procedures.

We also offer cosmetic removal of skin polyps and seborrheic keratosis.

Medical insurance does not pay for these cosmetic services. Check with our office staff for prices. Payment of all cosmetic service is due at the time the service is provided.
