Nonsurgical treatments can be used as a stand alone treatment or in conjunction with surgical treatments to augment surgical results. Below is a list of nonsurgical treatments that we have found through experience to achieve excellent results on a reliable and safe basis for our patients.
A temporary non-surgical treatment used to smooth out facial wrinkles, lines and scars.
Over time, emotional expressions such as smiling, laughing and frowning can cause wrinkles in the skin overlying the facial muscles. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections block the nerve impulses that cause these facial muscles to contract. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are used to improve the appearance of worry lines, laugh lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, and other wrinkles associated with an animated face. These treatments last approximately 3 to 4 months.*
The procedure relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles so they do not contract. The treatment requires 15 minutes with no need for a recovery period. Patients can return to work or social activities immediately.
Fillers are utilized to add volume to the skin or subcutaneous tissue. We use hyaluronic acid products as fillers to fill superficial wrinkles, deep wrinkles, folds, or areas of the face that lose volume with aging. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar molecule that is found in skin and joints and binds collagen fibers. As we age, there is a significant reduction in hyaluronic acid. By the time we are 50 years old there is a 50% reduction in hyaluronic acid. The advantage of using this to fill the skin and subcutaneous tissue is that it is bio identical and also is reversible if there is a need to remove the product. There are many different products in the hyaluronic acid portfolio that are used as fillers. These products differ in the degree of viscosity, ability to shape or mold, and the ability for the product to diffuse into the surrounding areas. Significant experience is necessary to understand how to use each of these products optimally.

Erbium laser resurfacing is a technique that is used for removing moderate-to-surface-level lines and wrinkles in the face, hands, neck or chest. Through brief pulses of high-energy light, the light helps to tighten loose or wrinkled skin and leave patients with a fresh, glowing appearance. Specifically, erbium resurfacing of the lower eyelid is designed to improve wrinkles that appear underneath the eyes. Patients often opt for this procedure because it is non-surgical and the surrounding tissue is not affected. There are fewer side effects than other traditional treatment methods.
