Botox CosmeticBotox cosmetic (botulinum toxin type a) is a natural purified protein that temporarily relaxes overactive muscles & reduces moderate frown lines between the brows, forehead & crows feet creating a smooth, rested, & rejuvenated appearance. Wrinkles are created when nerve cells within the muscles beneath the skin release a chemical called acetyl choline, which in turn triggers a muscle contraction that creates wrinkles. Botox basically disrupts the release of this chemical. A more youthful look is visible in about 1 week. Year after year botox cosmetic is the fastest-growing non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the nation. And it's no surprise. This wonder toxin can banish those wrinkles on your forehead & around your eyes for up to 4 months! Discover the proven results that 11.8 million women & men have already experienced

3D Skin Rejuvenation
Improving Tone, Texture & TautnessOver time, alterations in the color & texture of the skin inevitably occur, due to cumulative sun exposure (hence the term'photo aging'). In addition, the collagen in the skin that keeps it taut begins to weaken, & w/ the pull of gravity the skin becomes lax. The 3d concept approach to skin rejuvenation addresses each of these three types of changes
Color ChangesThe photo genesis procedure (using the cutera lp 560'intelligent' pulsed light addresses an array of superficial pigment changes induced by the sun that occur in the epidermis & papillary dermis. Overexposure to uv light can cause brown solar lentigines ('age spots"), sallow ness, generalized redness, and/or specific tiny, diffuse telangiectasia. The photo genesis procedure mitigates & even eliminates these bothersome changes, resulting in a more uniform skin color.
Texture ChangesThe laser genesis procedure addresses the diffuse textural changes associated w/ aging skin, which occur primarily in the papillary dermis. The laser energy stimulates dermal collagen re-growth & realignment (remodeling) so that pore size is reduced, cobble-stoning is flattened, & fine lines are obviated. Therefore, a positive impact on the micro topography of the skin can be achieved, in a manner that, until the advent of the laser genesis procedure, could not be accomplished nonablatively.
Gravity ChangesThe skin tightening procedure is an inspired way of treating lax skin. It utilizes laser to heat the water within the dermis to the point of collagen contraction. The collagen fiber support matrix not only tightens immediately, but is reinforced over time w/ integration of new fibroblasts. The clinical result is skin that not only looks, but feels firmer. Patients do not require anesthesia, & clinical outcomes, are well received by patients opting for a non-surgical approach. Our oldest patient is 94 & loves the way her skin looks
Combining Procedures for Added DimensionEach of these three modalities (photo genesis, laser genesis & skin tightening) can be used in combination w/ the others-on different occasions or during the same visit-to create a synergistic effect where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. For instance, improving both texture & tone, or both tautness & texture, produces an overall effect that belies the non-ablative nature of the procedures. In fact, we often follow laser genesis w/ photo genesis during the same visit: patients enjoy the rapid, tangible improvement they see in color, in addition to the more gradual effects of collagen rebuilding. The additive effect may also be attributed to a combined response within the dermis if there is sequential targeting within one treatment session: for instance, the gradual bulk heating of the skin that occurs w/ a tightening treatment can be "topped off" w/ laser genesis, such that each is optimized. Lastly, by combining multiple procedures within one visit, you can maximize results for the treatment series w/ a reduced number of visits. If utilizing more than one light modality in the same visit, we start w/ the deepest-reaching procedure & move toward the most superficial. Thus, skin tightening would precede laser genesis or photo genesis, & laser genesis would precede photo genesis. In this way, treatment at one level does not inhibit subsequent targeting beneath it. A series of treatments is still scheduled to leverage the results of the prior treatment, & the visits are spaced two weeks apart so the skin can begin healing & remodeling in the interim
Treatment ScenarioPatient age 30+with superficial dyschromia & fine telangiectasia; also cobblestoning, large pores and/or feathery line imprints.
Laser Genesis & Photo GenesisLaser genesis & photo genesis are an effective combination in a variety of patients. Both younger patients w/ large pores & older patients w/ large pores and/or fine wrinkling will benefit over time from the collagen realignment initiated by laser genesis. In addition, those same patients who also present w/ varying amounts of dyschromia, appreciate the rapid improvement they see w/ photo genesis.
Treatment ScenarioAge 40+ for whom skin laxity & crepe-paper skin or a lack of collage'cushion' are the most bothersome.
Skin Tightening & Laser GenesisThis scenario represents a situation in which the patient is interested in skin tightening first & foremost & in improving the overall resiliency of his/her skin. Because typically only one to three tightening treatments is necessary, & usually a greater number of laser genesis sessions, we can combine them in a manner that not only affords maximum effect but minimal visits for the patient. We maintain a one-month interval between skin tightening treatments, however, to allow establishment of a base of new collagen.
Skin Tightening, Laser Genesis, & Photo GenesisThis scenario represents a situation in which the patient is interested in skin tightening first & foremost & in improving the overall resiliency of his/her skin. Because typically only one to three tightening treatments is necessary, & usually a greater number of laser genesis sessions, we can combine them in a manner that not only affords maximum effect but minimal visits for the patient. We maintain a one-month interval between skin tightening treatments, however, to allow establishment of a base of new collagen.
Skin Tightening, Laser Genesis, & Photo GenesisThis scenario is the same as in sample treatment protocol but has supplemented the 4 visits for laser genesis/photo genesis w/ 2 different sessions of skin tightening along to address laxity. It is clinically viable to integrate the skin tightening into the other visits (preceding the laser genesis procedure), & there would still be no downtime. Three procedures, however, would add to the time of the visit.
