Many conditions can contribute to facial redness, the most common being rosacea. Rosacea is a common, inherited condition in which small blood vessels in the skin become wider and more noticeable. These vessels respond very well to treatment with a vascular laser. Other causes of facial redness include rashes, irritation, and more
Sagging skin along the jawline is inevitable as we age. As the cheeks lose volume, the skin sags down, leading to problems in the lower face and neck. If you wish to avoid a facelift, there are various non-surgical procedures available to correct this cosmetic condition. Often, patients select a combination of treatments to achieve the look they desire. Thermage® and Ematrix® are very effective, applying radiofrequency energy to stimulate new collagen production and tighten loose skin. Dermal fillers such as Sculptra®, Radiesse®, and Voluma® lift the cheeks upward and restore volume lost above the jaw line.
Scars form after a traumatic injury to the skin, often appearing as a shiny or darkened patch that may be flat or raised. Red scars and other cosmetic conditions such as red stretch marks (often in skin that has been unable to properly accommodate rapid growth outward,) can be improved by V Beam laser treatments.
Thin lips can be dramatically improved with dermal fillers. To recreate a more youthful lip, we focus on all the various cosmetic conditions in the region. We achieve this by softening the lines above the lip, lifting the corners of the mouth, increasing lip volume, and defining the lip line. Hyaluronic acid products such as Juvederm® and Restylane® are a popular choice for lip fillers, adding volume for a natural yet noticeable change. For a subtle change, we offer the latest fillers, Belotero® and Volbella®. Our patients are very pleased with the immediate results

Do your eyes look old and tired? Dark circles affect both men and women. Some common causes of this cosmetic condition are genetics, allergies, and lack of sleep. As we age, our skin thins, loses collagen, and becomes transparent, more easily revealing the bluish color of blood veins beneath. Using a cover-up makeup is useful. Keeping the eyelids hydrated with anti-aging eye cream is important. Getting more sleep can also help. For some people, a better long-term solution is an office treatment with dermal fillers.
Facial and leg veins can be noticeable and unattractive cosmetic conditions. Spider veins and vessels are often genetic or caused by hormonal changes, sun exposure, and the natural aging process. Fortunately there are treatments that effectively treat veins by collapsing them and allowing them to be reabsorbed by the body. Our patients are frequently amazed with the results of just one treatment with the vascular laser. Some veins, especially on the legs, respond well to sclerotherapy. A combination of the two, blending the benefits of laser treatment and sclerotherapy, may be best for some patients
An earring pulling down on the tissue, along with gravity and time, can stretch the earlobe out, leading to a large hole and a dangling lobe. In some cases, the hole itself may tear and split. The Patient Preferred Dermatology surgeons have expertise in repairing earlobes tears and reducing or removing large holes in ears.
