Botox is the brand name for a form of botulinum toxin type A approved for cosmetic use. When it is injected into the skin, it temporarily eliminates or reduces wrinkles and fine lines. Forehead creases, frown lines, and crow’s feet are the most common areas for Botox treatments.
Botox can also be used to treat thick jaw muscles, gummy smiles, thick bands in the neck, and lip lines.
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected underneath the skin to smooth lines, create more volume, and enhance facial contours. As we age, we lose subcutaneous fat (fat underneath the skin) in our faces which can cause wrinkles and make skin appear loose or saggy. The skin on your face also stretches as you age, adding to the loss of youthful firmness and volume.
Dermal fillers are used to plump thin lips, soften wrinkles and creases, reconstruct deformities of the face, improve the appearance of concave scarring, decrease or remove the shadow of the lower eyelids, and magnify shallow contours (cheekbones, jawlines, chins).
Laser resurfacing is also known as lasabrasion, laser vaporization, or a laser peel. Laser resurfacing uses short, concentrated, pulsating beams of light to burn away damaged skin one layer at a time. It is a very precise procedure. Laser surgery is used to reduce facial wrinkles, scars, and other blemishes.
Blepharoplasty is a surgical eyelift. It is often performed to remove excess tissue and fat from your eyelid and/or beneath the eye. Most often, we utilize this surgical procedure to remove under-eye bags, but it can also treat sagging eyelids that may obstruct the vision.
Rhinoplasty–commonly referred to as a “nose job”–is a cosmetic surgery meant to improve the functionality or appearance of your nose. Rhinoplasty can help correct defects that cause problems with breathing. It can also be used to change the shape or size of a nose.
Genioplasty, or chin shaping, is performed to move the chin forwards or backward to create your ideal profile. It is often performed alongside jaw repositioning surgery (orthognathic surgery) to ensure aesthetic harmony and alignment. Modifications to the jaw and chin improve bite alignment and can help treat pain caused by TMJ.
A facelift–also known as a rhytidectomy– is a surgical procedure designed to correct the visible signs of aging on your face and neck. There are several types of facelift, including the traditional facelift, the limited incision facelift, and the neck lift. All involve making an incision and repositioning the skin of your face to pull tighter and eliminate fine lines.
Otoplasty is the cosmetic reshaping of the ear. It can help to create a more natural contour or shape of the outer ear. Often, otoplasty is performed to bring the ears closer to the head, but it can also reduce the size of the ear or reshape it entirely.
Otoplasty is often used to correct microtia and other deformities of the ears.
