Cosmetic


Jane Iredale

Botox
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple 10-minute injection that relaxes the overactive muscles that cause deep persistent lines and wrinkles to form, especially in the brow and forehead regions. There is no down time or recovery period associated with this procedure. In a few days you will see dramatic results, which last up to six months. BOTOX® Cosmetic has become increasingly popular because it is a quick, non-invasive procedure to reverse the signs of aging, turning frown lines into a comfortable, natural facial expression.

Dysport

Dysport
Dysport is an effective treatment to temporarily improve moderate to severe frown lines. Dysport stops the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines. There is little to no downtime, and you can go about your day as usual!

Juvederm Ultra

Juvederm
Juvéderm® is a smooth gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Juvéderm® restores the skin's volume and smooths away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).

sculptra aesthetic

Sculptra
Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, and folds, that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades. Sculptra® can also be used to restore lost volume on the back of the hands improving the “veiny” appearance that occurs with aging. It provides an increase in the skin thickness of the areas where volume (fat) has been lost.

Restylane

Restylane
A revolutionary method to correct wrinkles and to achieve fuller lips, Restylane is the first and only soft tissue filler made of a non-animal substance (hyaluronic acid). It is considered the most natural choice available because hyaluronic acid is already present in the human body, posing virtually no risk for allergic reactions. Since hyaluronic acid constantly absorbs water, even while it gradually disintegrates, its effects last longer than that of collagen, and it is considered an ideal moisturizer. Performed in 30-minute sessions, Restylane treatments can be used to treat the lips, mouth, and forehead. Treatment can be repeated as necessary, typically in six to eight months.

 

Sclerotherapy
Superficial leg veins are common among men and women and may be hereditary. In fact, it is estimated that at least half of the adult female population has leg veins. Leg veins can be treated easily and effectively with sclerotherapy. More economical than lasers and very effective for veins of all sizes, sclerotherapy treatment reduces or eliminates leg veins, producing some results immediately!

 

Facials
Facials are the ultimate adjunct to any treatment because they allow you to feel relaxed, revived, and re-balanced through the use of therapeutic touch. Custom designed for your skin type and skin condition, they remove toxins and impurities, nourish and protect the skin, and improve circulation and drainage. Facials include deep cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, masque and serum treatments, hydration and sun protection.

 

Microdermabrasion
Pacific Dermatology uses the most effective system, which involves gliding a diamond-tipped instrument with vacuum pressure across the skin. This exfoliates and polishes the skin, cleanses the pores, smoothes skin texture, stimulates collagen and fibrin formation, improves product penetration, and increases circulation and lymphatic drainage. It is used to treat conditions such as sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, acne, whiteheads, blackheads, oily skin, large pores, rough skin texture, superficial pigmentation, and superficial scars. Patients will experience softer, smoother and cleaner skin after the first treatment and will continue to improve with additional treatments.

 

Scar Revision
Many factors determine the severity of scarring: the size of a wound, its depth, the blood supply to the area, and skin tone. Surgery cannot completely remove a scar, but the appearance of most scars can be greatly improved. Scar revision is a surgical procedure used to improve the appearance of scars that do not respond to cortisone drugs, steroids, or skin gels. Several techniques are available, including excision and laser treatment.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation
The Fotofacial™ / Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™) system is a revolutionary new photo rejuvenation treatment that permanently eliminates or reduces sun spots / age spots, vascular lesions, rosacea / facial redness, dilated capillaries, fine lines, enlarged pores, small veins, rough or uneven skin texture, and skin imperfections. It was created as a method to correct skin conditions without the invasiveness or the downtime often associated with skin resurfacing procedures. No anesthesia is required, but it is available upon request. Patients are able to return to most activities immediately after the treatment, which takes approximately 20 minutes. Redness, flushing, and rosacea symptoms can be improved by more than 75 percent after the Fotofacial™ Treatment.

 

Laser Hair Removal
The physicians at Pacific Dermatology can quickly and comfortably remove unwanted hair from your face, back, arms, legs, bikini line, and virtually any other part of your body using a laser. This non-invasive light therapy offers the latest and most effective method of hair removal. As the light is absorbed by the hair follicle, hair re-growth is stopped without damaging the surrounding tissue. Four to five treatments are performed at four to six week intervals. The reduction in hair is nearly total, typically about 80 to 90 percent per treated area. The benefits of laser hair removal include smoother and stubble-free skin, freedom from shaving or waxing, and improved self-confidence.
