FACIAL REJUVENATION TREATMENTS
Whether as a complement to cosmetic surgery, or an individual approach to skin care, our facial rejuvenation treatments and thoughtfully selected skin care products can create a softer, more radiant appearance. Utilizing a combination of procedures and products, we are able to design individualized, result-oriented skin regimens to help restore the health and youthfulness of your skin.
Our Facial Rejuvenation Treatments Include:
Years of squinting, concentrating or frowning can cause your skin to furrow and crease. BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medicine that is injected into the small muscles between the brows (glabellar lines), in the forehead and at the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet) to improve the appearance of severe to moderate wrinkles. While results vary, you may begin to notice a softening of your moderate to severe frown lines within 48 hours. Re-injection is typically necessary within three to four months.
As we age, our skin changes. Over time the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. JUVÉDERM® XC is a smooth gel filler that is gently injected under the skin around your nose (parentheses lines), vertical and corner lip, lines as well as marionette lines, to instantly smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM® XC is the first and only injectable gel for wrinkles and folds that is FDA-approved to last up to 1 year with optimal treatment.
Wrinkles and lines are only part of the aging equation, volume loss in the cheeks is a major reason we lose that youthful profile over the years. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is the first and only FDA-approved filler to correct age-related volume loss in the mid-face. Injected under the skin with a small needle, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC instantly adds volume to lift the cheek area temporarily reversing this sign of aging. With optimal treatment, results can last up to two years.

Sun exposure, acne, or just getting older can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred. CHEMICAL PEELS are one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. The chemical peel process involves the application of a tailored chemical solution to the skin, resulting in new skin generation. This fresh skin is typically more even in color and smoother. The down-time ranges from none at all for very light peels to 7-10 days for more aggressive peels. Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands.
MICRO-NEEDLING / COLLAGEN INDUCTION
Micro-Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy utilizes tiny needles to make micro openings in the skin stimulating the lower layers to produce collagen.
The procedure can be performed on all types of skin and skin colors AND on many parts of the body including the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs and abdomen.
Each treatment will take 30-45 minutes. Most patients will experience slight swelling and redness/pinkness (like a mild sunburn) for 2-3 days; others may completely heal in 24 hours.
The recommended number of treatments will be based on your individual treatment goals and the health of your skin.
Most patients receive a series of 3 treatments at 4 – 6 week intervals. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo aging, stretch marks or acne scars 6 – 8 sessions may be necessary.
LASER VEIN REDUCTION
Spider veins are cherry red in color and usually appear on the legs, face and sometimes on the arms. They may develop because of hormone changes, weight gain, prolonged sitting or standing or they may be an inherited family trait. Spider veins can be treated with a laser. With this method, a laser sends a beam of light that targets and destroys the vein without damaging your skin. Although laser treatments do not prevent new veins from forming, it is a very effective treatment that usually produces few, if any, side effects. A consultation with Dr. Cotter is required prior to treatment.
LASER HAIR REDUCTION
Unlike other common methods of hair removal, like shaving, waxing, or tweezing, laser hair reduction treatments produce effective and lasting results. Laser hair reduction is a non-invasive procedure that uses highly concentrated light to penetrate hair follicles. The heat from the laser damages the hair to inhibit future growth. Common areas of treatment include the face, underarms and bikini line. A consultation with Dr. Cotter is required prior to treatment.
