Botox is a protein injected into the skin to eliminate facial wrinkles by relaxing surrounding muscles. Botox injections are used for glabellar line (wrinkles between the eyebrows) elimination, as well as crow’s feet treatment and to eliminate frown lines and furrows in the forehead. It also can be used for severe armpit perspiration, relief of migraine headaches and ocular muscle spasms.
A chemical peel procedure is performed by brushing a chemical solution on the skin to remove the damaged outer layers, creating smooth, younger looking skin. Typically performed on the face, it also can be done on the neck and hands.
Juvederm, Voluma, Restylane, Perlane, Belotero, and Radiesse are products that are injected under the skin to help soften the appearance of fine and deep lines in the face. Results can last from six months to two years.
Sculptra Aesthetic is a product injected into the face to assist with areas that have lost volume. Areas on the face that show hollowness or loss of soft tissue can be rejuvenated with volumizing products like Sculptra through a series of treatments. Sculptra triggers the body to generate collagen to build volume and fullness to improve the natural beauty in your skin. Results last two years or more.
Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins
Sclerotherapy is the gold standard for treatment of spider veins. It involves injecting a solution with a very small needle into the spider veins. The solution irritates the lining of the veins, causing the veins to collapse.
Microdermabrasion with Dermalinfusion
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that repairs sun damage or aging skin. The outer layers of skin are removed using a hand device that sprays tiny crystals on the surface of the skin. Typically, more than one treatment is recommended. We utilize the Silkpeel system which infuses solution into the skin during microdermabrasion to help with brightening, anti-aging and acne.
Proper skin care is the foundation to having healthy and beautiful skin. We carry skin care products and sunscreens to help patients prevent and repair sun damaged skin. Some products incorporate prescription medications to fade sun spots, diminish fine wrinkles and improve skin texture. We carry Obagi, Elta MD, Skinceuticals, Revision, Clarisonic, Neotensil and Latisse.
A photofacial is a treatment used to resolve redness, rosacea, age spots, sun damage and broken capillaries. Photofacials target redness and brown spots on the skin to help even out skin tone. Treatments can be applied to the face, chest, arms, shoulders, back, hands and legs. Photofacials may also be combined with Levulan to treat actinic keratoses and sun damage at the same time.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal uses energy and heat to destroy hair follicles without harming the surrounding skin. This permanent hair removal treatment is done during several visits, spaced based on the patient’s individual needs. Laser hair removal can be utilized to remove unwanted hair on the face, lip, chin, armpits, neck, chest, back, bikini and legs.
Laser resurfacing is used to treat wrinkles, sun damage and scarring. Non-ablative fractional resurfacing (for all scarring and wrinkling) is offered at Mountain Dermatology Specialists. Fractional resurfacing heats the skin to stimulate the body to produce new collagen, which helps the skin appear more smooth and clear. Several treatments typically are required to see results.
