Botox, Soft Tissue Fillers, Kybella®, IPL

Dr. Bogart and Jane Thomas, APRN offer the latest advances in facial rejuvenation using various injectables such as Botox®, Restylane®, Juvéderm®, Xeomin®, Voluma®, Belotero, Silk and Lyft. Each treatment is tailored to the patient's individual needs. With these products Dr. Bogart  and Jane are able to treat frown lines, forehead lines, and crow's feet as well as lines around the mouth. Many of these products are used to re-volumize an aging face.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. It is injected under the skin into areas surrounding the eyes, forehead and mouth to smooth crow's feet, frown and worry lines, and lines on the neck. Made from a purified protein, BOTOX® injections block nerve impulses, weakening muscles to relax wrinkles and give the face a rejuvenated look. BOTOX® may also be useful for migraine headaches and excessive sweating.
Soft Tissue Fillers (Volume Fillers)

As we age, we lose volume in our face resulting in lines around the mouth, sunken cheeks, loss of contour around the lips, and wrinkles. Many of these products are used to re-volumize an aging face. These include product fillers such as Restylane®, Juvéderm®, Belotero® and Voluma. Fillers can also be used to add volume to the lips and hands.

KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin by physically destroying fat cells.  Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.  Kybella® is the first non-surgical, injectable procedure successfully used for contouring under the chin.

IPL - Intense Pulsed Light
IPL Photorejuvenation can treat a variety of benign skin conditions. The broad spectrum of light used in IPL Photorejuvenation treatments is absorbed by the target tissue, and is then removed by the body's natural processes, providing dramatic improvements in the appearance of age spots, sun spots, sun damage, freckles, rosacea and more.

Is IPL right for you?

IPL Photorejuvenation may be the ideal treatment option if you:

  • Want to improve the appearance of redness and rosacea
  • Want to improve the appearance of brown pigmentation and age spots
  • Want a procedure that has very minimal down time

IPL Photorejuvenation Results

  • Improves rosacea and mottled pigmentation
  • Reduces sun spots, age spots, freckles and sun damage 
  • Stimulates collagen formation
  • Virtually eliminates small red vessels

What is IPL Photorejuvenation?

IPL Photorejuvenation is a gentle, non-invasive treatment that improves the appearance of photoaged skin, removes age spots, most benign brown pigments and redness caused by broken capillaries. IPL Photorejuvenation can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type, providing superior cosmetic results and high satisfaction.

How does it work?

A broad spectrum of light is transmitted with the IPL handpiece through a small, smooth, transparent lightguide which is gently placed over your skin. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the blood when treating vascular lesions or the melanin when treating pigmented lesions. The body's natural processes then remove the injured tissue giving the skin a more even tone and texture, and a more youthful appearance.

Where on the body can IPL Photorejuvenation be used?

IPL Photorejuvenation can be used to treat any area of the body. The most common areas are the face, neck, chest and hands.

Who can get an IPL Photorejuvenation treatment?

Most people can safely receive an IPL Photorejuvenation treatment. However, always consult with your physician to find out if IPL is right for you. Be sure to also ask your physician about all the other benefits of IPL treatments!

What is an IPL Photorejuvenation treatment like?

First, a cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated, and you may be given dark glasses or goggles to protect your eyes from the bright light. The pulses of light are applied to your face, and you may feel a slight stinging. Each treatment typically takes about 20 minutes. Treatment is generally administered in a series of four to six sessions, and you will see gradual improvement that yields excellent long-term results with very low risk and very minimal downtime


What Are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are small, thin veins that lie close to the surface of the skin. Although these super-fine veins are connected with the larger venous system, they are not an essential part of it. A number of factors contribute to the development of spider veins, including heredity, pregnancy and other events that cause hormonal shifts, weight gain, occupations or activities that require prolonged sitting or standing, and the use of certain medications. Spider veins usually take on one of three basic patterns. They may appear in a true spider shape with a group of veins radiating outward from a dark central point; they may be arborizing and will resemble tiny branch-like shapes; or they may be simple linear and appear as thin separate lines.

Treatment of Spider Veins

The treatment of spider veins is done with sclerotherapy. In this rather simple procedure, veins are injected with a sclerosing solution, which causes them to collapse and fade from view. The procedure may also remedy the bothersome symptoms associated with spider veins, including aching, burning, swelling and night cramps. Sclerotherapy can enhance your appearance and your self confidence, but it's unrealistic to believe that every affected vein will disappear completely as a result of treatment. After each sclerotherapy session, the veins will appear lighter. Two or more sessions are usually required to achieve optimal results. You should also be aware that the procedure treats only those veins that are currently visible; it does nothing to permanently alter the venous system or prevent new veins from surfacing in the future.
