Microdermabrasion with Laser
Microdermabrasion combined with “low-dose” laser has been shown to successfully erase many components of aging and sun damaged skin, such as fine wrinkles. This procedure modifies superficial scars and enlarged pores and also improves the condition of the skin. This combination technique is aimed at stimulating and repairing the support tissues in the “damaged” skin. There is minimal discomfort and/or pain.
Chemical exfoliations use glycolic acid to improve the condition of the skin. The treatment helps moisturize the skin, improve skin tone, and in some instances, reduce very fine lines.
Botox® Cosmetic was FDA-approved in April of 2002 to temporarily remove “frown lines” commonly found across the forehead and between the brows. These injections work by inactivating the nerves which normally stimulate the forehead muscles to contract. When these muscles are in their relaxed state, the wrinkles associated with them temporarily disappear. The results of these treatments are not permanent but may last for several months.
