Dr. Quetell will evaluate scarring and recommend treatment from one or more of a variety of products and procedures at his disposal.
Sometimes called a ‘laser peel,’ a carbon dioxide laser is used to remove areas of damaged or wrinkled skin layer by layer. It is often used to minimize fine lines, but can also be effective in treating facial scars or uneven pigmentation.
Laser hair removal removes the hair follicles, resulting in lasting hair removal after a series of treatments.
Botox Cosmetic is an FDA-approved treatment which is injected into the muscles which cause moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. After the injections, you will notice improvement in these frown lines within days and the results can last up to 4 months.
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid-based filler used beneath the skin. Like other hyaluronic dermal fillers, Restylane is free from animal proteins which eliminate risks of allergic reactions. Restylane is most commonly used to improve facial wrinkles and folds including nasolabial folds.
Juvederm is also an FDA approved hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. This smooth consistency gel helps add volume and hydration to your face. Juvederm is most commonly used to treat your smile lines, or nasolabial folds. This injectable process takes about on 15 minutes to complete, and results can be immediate.
Radiesse is FDA approved to safely correct wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, also commonly referred to as smile lines, Nasolabial Folds and Marionette Lines. Radiesse not only fills in your lines and wrinkles, it stimulates the production of collagen and encourages tissue regeneration. These immediate results can last up to one year.
A chemical solution is used to improve and smooth the texture of facial skin by removing damaged outer layers. It can help with blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation, as well as with removing pre-cancerous lesions. Three types of peels offer strengths from mild to strong.
Microdermabrasion is a skin-freshening technique that helps repair facial skin that takes a beating from the sun and the effects of aging. A fine sandblaster-like device is used to spray tiny crystals across the face, combining gentle abrasion with suction to remove the problem areas of the outer layer of your skin. As with other skin rejuvenation techniques, more than one treatment may be needed to reduce or remove fine wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation.
