Botox - BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and around the eyes. One 10-minute treatment of a few tiny injections and within days there is a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines which can last up to four months.
Restylane/Juvederm/Perlane - With Restylane®, you can have a natural beauty lift with the body's own material. Restylane® is a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on a natural substance, called hyaluronic acid. The gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement, gentle and safe to your skin. Restylane® is most commonly used to enhance the lips, fill in Nasolabial folds as well as deeper facial creases. Perlane®, is like Restylane®, but is a larger molecule and is used for deeper problems. The effects of these fillers can last up to 12 months. Juvéderm™ made by Allergan works similarly.
Radiesse - Radiesse® has been clinically proven to last up to one year due to its advanced calcium-based microsphere technology. It is used the face, most commonly in the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and the oral commissures. Mid-face volume restoration with Radiesse® results in a dramatic lifting of the facial tissue. The youthful facial planes are restored and the results have been referred to as "the liquid face lift".
Vibraderm Microdermabrasion Vibradermabrasion is the newest technology in microdermabrasion. Vibradermabrasion therapy produces exfoliation on any part of the body. The process is fast and very comfortable for the patient and produces exceptional results. 75-85% of the stratum corneum is removed in minutes and immediately revives the skins appearance. In addition, Vibraderm will prepare the skin for additional procedures such as Non-ablative Light Source treatments (Laser/IPL/LED), chemical and laser peels, and hydrating facials to name a few.
Mesolift/Mesoglow MesoGlow, using tiny needles hydrates the skin by infusing it with potent antioxidants and vitamins. This procedure is not painful. It adds moisturizing elements to the skin, particularly Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C and DMAE. Mesoglow improves elasticity and hydration of the skin and results are immediate. The effects of MesoGlow are dramatic, causing facial skin to regain its youthful glow. It is the perfect treatment to have before an important event.
MesoLift using tiny needles is an excellent method for facial rejuvenation and enhances skin tightening and skin lifting as well as improving the condition of dry, weathered skin. Vitamins, minerals and amino acids are delivered directly into the skin to nourish and hydrate the tissue and promote the production of collagen and elastin. These are done at two week intervals and then every six weeks as the epidermis turns over. This procedure is not painful.
Chemical Peels A variety of chemical peels are available ranging from mild peels that exfoliate at the cellular level without peeling (glycolic) to more aggressive chemical peels that are effective at treating both mild and severe sun damage, skin discoloration and wrinkles. These peels are only available from a physician.
Dr. Wohlman offers: VI PEEL®, Vitalize Peel® and Glycolic Peels.
MicroLaser Peel The MicroLaser™ Peel removes the outermost layers of the skin. This procedure can be performed superficially as a light chemical peel, as deep as a CO2 laser and any variation in between! The treatment is individually tailored to the nature of the condition being corrected.
Profractional ProFractional™ and/or ProFractional™ XC are procedures whereby fractionated laser beams are sent deep into the epidermis and/or underlying tissues to stimulate collagen. These procedures are successful in the treatment of acne pits, scars, deep wrinkles and stretch marks. Fractional resurfacing is sometimes used to treat Melasma. This procedure can be done with or without the MicroLaser™ Peel and Coag.
