BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX Bryn MawrWhen you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments can not only prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements, they can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking younger and refreshed.

JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel

Juvederm Bryn MawrJUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is an injectable gel that gently reverses many signs of aging in the face, including fine lines and wrinkles, crow's feet, thinning lips and loosening skin. It can also "plump up" the lips, sculpt the cheeks, and restore a youthful oval shape to the face. It is made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that works with collagen and elastin to give volume and support to the skin. Because it is non-animal-based and highly biocompatible, no pre-treatment testing is needed. JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel comes in three formulas optimized for the depth of the area being treated. Results last about 6-9 months and can be made to last even longer with a simple follow-up treatment a few weeks after the initial injection.

Restylane®

Restylane Bryn MawrRestylane® is designed to smooth wrinkles, sculpt lips and shape facial contours. It is a clear, synthetic gel made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is found throughout your body. It carries little risk of allergic reaction. The most common areas for treatment are the glabellar lines (between the eyebrows) and the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of your mouth). With its unique ability to bind with water, Restylane remains in your skin for many months.

Perlane®

Perlane Bryn MawrPerlane® is an injectable filler used to treat deep facial lines, augment the lips and contour the cheeks and chin. Made by the same company that produces Restylane®, Perlane contains purified hyaluronic acid, a sugar found naturally in the body that works with collagen to keep the skin smooth and supple. It is hypoallergenic and so does not require a pre-treatment skin test. With its unique ability to bind with water, Perlane continues to perform up to 60% longer than collagen. 

Glycolic Peel

The mildest form of chemical peels, glycolic peels gently exfoliate the surface layer of skin to expose the fresher, younger-looking skin beneath. They are ideal for roughness, dryness, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles. Treatments take only 10-15 minutes. Results are visible immediately, although repeated treatments are recommended for best results.

Melasma Peel

This skin rejuvenating peel is used for the treatment of uneven and deep pigmentation. You will see a significant improvement in pigmented areas, skin texture and tone. Patients will receive at-home products to use following the peel.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion improves mild to moderate sun damage, scarring, wrinkles and other superficial skin problems. A gentle stream of tiny particles exfoliates the outer layer of skin and provides a fresh, glowing, younger appearance. Only a small amount of skin is removed, so sensitive areas such as the face, chest, neck, arms and hands can be treated. Results are comparable to a light chemical peel and should be immediately visible. Microdermabrasion is often performed in conjunction with other skin renewal procedures, such as laser treatment and chemical peels. Multiple treatments are recommended for full effect.

Sclerotherapy (Leg/Spider Veins)

Sclerotherapy is a procedure used for the treatment of varicose or "spider" veins. It involves small injections of solution directly into unwanted veins causing them to vanish. Treatment usually takes less than 30 minutes and normal activity can be resumed immediately. In two to four sessions, you will be back in shorts and swimwear!
