The eyes have it

Two of the first things people notice about you are your eyes, and your smile. Today, in this session, we will address the eyes. There are a number of different treatment options available to open up, and accentuate the eyes. The first is the use of a neurotoxin, such as Botox or Xeomin. Botox and Xeomin can be used to open the eyes, reduce wrinkles, and to rid the furrowed brow of those pesky "11's.". It can be used to...

How Much Recovery/Pain Can I Expect?

A very significant concern for patients is the amount of time for recovery following procedures. I recognize the importance of providing an accurate and honest answer for each patient in regard to their specific treatment plan and procedures. This is extremely important considering that if there is downtime, this could significantly impact both social and professional commitments. While many of our procedures, such as Botox, fillers, and light-based therapies very often result in no downtime, it is possible that localized...

Holiday Ready

  As the holiday season approaches, I am frequently asked what treatment options are available to spruce up one's appearance that are quick, in office procedures that have little to no downtime.

Non-Surgical Treatment for Skin Laxity

One of the most common areas that Iโ€™m asked to treat as a facial plastic surgeon is neck and jowl laxity. Most patients will ask me how this can be treated in a nonsurgical manner. While there have been many nonsurgical modalities developed over the last 10 years, these universally have fallen short in achieving significant improvement and high patient satisfaction. Some of these treatment modalities are Thermage, Fraxel and most recently Ulthera. The gold standard of treatment has been...

First time here & I will definitely be back! Allison did my Botox. She was honest when I asked her what areas she thought botox would be best for me & explained the whole process. I have received botox at other cosmetic centers & this was by far the best experience!
