Wrinkles and Folds Treatment
BOTOX® Cosmetic, a purified protein that can temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown lines between the brows is a short and minimally invasive treatment that requires no downtime. Doctors Eugene and Steven Mandrea have treated numerous patients with Botox Cosmetic in conjunction with fillers (Juvederm) in order to enhance their effectiveness and prolong the duration thereof. Radiesse® is a safe and effective cosmetic dermal filler that lasts longer than other non-permanent fillers. Your more youthful look will last longer because Radiesse® stimulates your skin to make new collagen while its calcium based microspheres fill the treated area immediately.
In some patients with acne scars and acne still very active, we may chose to start the treatment with the Smoothbeam Laser. The smoothbeam causes a thermal injury to the oil glands and as such, the flow of oil is diminished. As a direct consequence, the acne activity also diminishes.
Artefill® is the only FDA-approved permanent cosmetic injectable for treatment of nasolabial folds. Achieve PERMANENT correction of these indicators of aging during a safe and convenient office visit.
Artefill® is composed of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres suspended in purified bovine collagen. PMMA has been safely used for 6 decades in implantable medical devices. Because of potential allergy to the bovine collagen component, a small skin test is required 4 weeks prior to treatment. If the skin test is negative, treatment may proceed. Many patients do require a second treatment for optimal correction a few weeks after the first, but the results are then permanent!
