Reduce Wrinkles and Rejuvenate Skin with Non-Surgical Treatments
BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dysport®
Botox and Dysport are both injectable facial treatments that can reduce lines and wrinkles to rejuvenate your skin. By injecting small amounts of purified botulinum toxin into your skin, these treatments block the nerve impulses that cause wrinkles. These treatments both have localized affects, meaning Dr. Boudreaux and Dr. Claiborne can target the nerves in specific areas of your face - whether along your brow, around the eyes, or deepening laugh lines. Because Botox and Dysport offer similar benefits, Dr. Boudreaux and Dr. Claiborne can answer your questions and help you decide the best treatment to meet your needs.
Dr. Boudreaux and Dr. Claiborne offer a variety of injectable dermal fillers, including JUVEDERM®, JUVEDERM® VolumaTM, Radiesse®, Sculptra®, Restylane®, and Bellafill®. These treatments use a variety of biocompatible materials to fill in deep creases and smooth out your skin. Some of these treatments, such as Sculptra® and Bellafill®, can also stimulate collagen production and encourage your skin’s natural rejuvenation process. All of these treatments are highly effective, though one may be more suited to your skin type and treatment goals. Dr. Boudreaux and Dr. Claiborne will guide you in selecting the right dermal filler to have your skin looking great.
Even if you are at a healthy weight and exercise regularly, you may be embarrassed by patches of cellulite on your abdomen, back or thighs that will not go away despite all your hard effort. VASERshape™ is an innovative treatment that uses ultrasound technology and lymphatic massage to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Using a special hand-held device, our trained medical assistant will deliver the ultrasound waves, which target unwanted fat cells. The patient then receives a soothing lymphatic massage to encourage blood flow to the treatment area and drain away toxins to promote healing.
CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing
This treatment uses carbon dioxide lasers to reduce wrinkles and scars and to stimulate your body’s production of collagen. The laser treats a fraction of your skin, creating tiny openings in the treatment area and leaving the surrounding skin untouched. In just a few days, new skin will replace the older, damaged skin. By encouraging natural healing and collagen production, the treatment can have longer lasting results than traditional laser skin treatment. In fact, although recovery from this procedure takes just a few days, the results may last for eight to ten years.
Phenol peels, or deep peels, are the strongest type of chemical skin peels available, and can only be offered by a cosmetic surgeon. This treatment, which is administered under local or general anesthesia, uses phenol-croton oil, to remove the top layer of damaged skin, revealing the healthy, new skin underneath. Because this procedure is so powerful, you may experience some residual redness for up to three months following your treatment. Patients can enjoy results that last decades, far longer than any other type of laser or chemical peel. It is particularly suitable for treating deep lines and wrinkles, as well as serious sun damage.
CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction, and can remove the fat cells that do not respond to diet and exercise. This innovative treatment uses cool temperatures to freeze away fat cells during a process called cryolipolysis. Fat cells are more sensitive to cold than other cells, so while the fat crystallizes, the surrounding skin and muscles remain unaffected. Over the next several months, your body will naturally flush out these crystallized fat cells, leaving you with a firmer, more toned body. CoolSculpting® treatments typically take one hour, after which you can immediately return to your daily routine.
Laser Tattoo Removal
Tattoos offer a way to express yourself or celebrate a loved one or event. Unfortunately, trends and relationships can change over the years. In fact, a multitude of reasons can cause regret over a tattoo. We are pleased to offer laser tattoo removal with the revolutionary pico second technology combined with traditional nanosecond technology. Laser tattoo treatments precisely target pigmented tissue to remove unwanted ink, which minimizes pain and recovery time. During treatment, ultra-short bursts of energy target specific wavelengths of color. If you live with a tattoo you are no longer happy with, laser tattoo removal can safely and comfortably restore your natural skin pigmentation.
