Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures
Although I am a trained surgeon, I believe it is my ethical obligation to try to prevent my patients from going under the knife unless there is no reasonable alternative.
As such, we have in my office of variety of options that can postpone, minimize and in some cases even obviate the need for surgery.
Microdermabrasion is a very effective way to help minimize the fine lines and wrinkles that come with time. This procedure gives my patients a healthier and more youthful appearance with virtually no risk and no need for surgery.
In conjunction with microdermabrasion we offer a variety of low and intermediate grade chemical peels. These can allow even further enhancement of the skin quality in the areas with slightly deeper lines. I find that the combination of microdermabrasion and low grade peels offers excellent results while minimizing the risks of scarring and pigment change that can be associated with deeper peeling procedures.
Botox ® Cosmetic
In the right candidates BOTOX® Cosmetic can dramatically improve forehead lines and wrinkles and even the areas around the eyes that are unceremoniously referred to as “crow’s feet.” It is a highly effective tool with relatively low risk where once we could only offer brow lift surgery or deep chemical peels.
