Laser/Non-surgical Therapy

Laser/ Non-Surgical Therapy

In addition to cosmetic surgery, we proudly offer noninvasive therapies to keep you looking your best. Noninvasive cosmetic treatments are an increasingly popular choice for those looking to enhance their appearance without undergoing surgery and limiting downtime. In our practice, we offer neurotoxins, soft tissue fillers, and laser therapies.

Neurotoxins such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are injectable treatments that work by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. They are commonly used to treat wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. Less commonly, these products can be used other areas to strategically weaken muscles of the face and neck. The treatment involves a series of small injections with minimal discomfort. If bruising occurs, it is usually small and gone in a day. Results last between three to six months, and can be repeated as desired.

Soft tissue fillers come in a few varieties and even more brand names. These products are injected under the skin through a syringe or small cannula to fill in wrinkles and restore volume to the face. In my practice, I prefer the hyaluronic acid-based fillers as they are effective and can be reversed. Results are effectively immediate and last on the order of months to years depending on the product, treatment area, and patient. These treatments can be repeated as desired but I often find that less is more with these types of products.

Laser therapies involve the use of focused energy to improve skin texture and color. Lasers can treat a variety of skin conditions including sun damage, age spots, wrinkles, acne scars, and post-surgical scars. Depending on the treatment, downtime can range from minimal to several weeks. In our practice, we proudly offer Sciton technology including a full field ablative Erbium laser, a fractionated ablative Erbium laser, the HALO laser (Erbium + Diode), and Broad Band Light (BBL) technologies.
It is important to note that while noninvasive treatments are generally considered safe, they do carry risks. Patients should always consult with a qualified physician before undergoing any cosmetic procedure. During a consultation, your surgeon will listen to your goals and recommend an individually tailored treatment plan that’s right for you. They will describe the results you can expect from each treatment, and help you choose the best option for you.
