One of the most commonly performed procedures in the United States, BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medication that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of wrinkles. It is administered by a provider in the office, and takes only 15 minutes out of your day. Many patients elect to have this treatment done, because it provides noticeable but natural results with no downtime. You can resume your day after treatment with only a few post-care instructions to keep in mind.
Areas commonly treated with BOTOX® include forehead, crow’s feet, and glabella region (between the brows). Results last an average of 3 months. You can be treated the same day as a medical office visit or cosmetic consultation – no need for another appointment!

What is automated Micro-Needling? Automated micro-needling (also known as Epidermal Collagen Induction Therapy or ECIT) is a new innovation in aesthetics for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s texture, tone and color.
What are the benefits? Reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture and softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. MicroPen® Elite can help improve the appearance of hyper-pigmentation as well as uneven skin tone, acne scars and traumatic scars.
How long does the procedure take? The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
What is the downtime? Immediately after the treatment, you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total recovery time depends on the position of the pen and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red for 2-4 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours.
When will I see the results? Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
Chemical peels are non-invasive, exfoliating treatments used to rejuvenate the skin. They help to improve a number of skin conditions including acne, brown spots, fine lines, and clogged pores. Chemical peels leave your skin feeling smoother, brighter, and more radiant. We offer a variety of different chemical peels that can be customized to each patient’s concerns, most requiring little or no downtime. You will leave our office feeling relaxed and refreshed, and your skin will have never looked better!
Lasers are used to treat numerous skin imperfections caused by aging, sun damage, or other medical conditions such as rosacea. Laser treatments offer numerous benefits that are long-lasting by rejuvenating the skin’s surface and rebuilding collagen. Here at Complete Dermatology, we utilize the latest in laser technology.
It is important to consult with a dermatologist proficient in laser therapies to ensure the right laser and laser settings are chosen. Treatments will vary according to a patient’s skin type, skin condition, amount of sun exposure received, and downtime allowed. Some laser treatments require little to no downtime, while other more aggressive treatments may require some downtime for skin healing.
At a laser consultation, the provider will assess a patient’s concerns, and choose a customized treatment plan. The provider will also set the patient’s expectations to ensure the patient will be happy with the outcome of the treatment. It is also important to realize that a series of treatments may be necessary to achieve optimal results. Call our office today to schedule a consultation and take the first step toward the skin you’ve always wanted.
As we age, we lose volume in our face, causing our skin to sag and wrinkles to appear. Facial fillers, often called a “liquid facelift”, is a great option for people who want a minimally-invasive approach to restoring volume in their face. Fillers are made of a soft, moldable substance that is injected into wrinkles or hollow areas of the face. There are many different fillers to choose from. At your consultation, your provider will help you decide which one(s) will be most beneficial.
Results are temporary, lasting three to eighteen months depending of type of filler and area being treated. Areas that are commonly treated include cheeks, lips, smile lines, marionette lines, and tear troughs. This treatment is commonly chosen to soften the appearance of “lipstick lines” and “jowls”. Discomfort is minimized by applying numbing cream before the procedure, and applying cold gel packs after. Downtime is minimal, and usually involves mild swelling and/or bruising.
Our providers are highly trained and offer the following types of filler: Radiesse®, Belotero®, Juvederm Ultra® and Juvederm Ultra Plus®.
A facial is a therapeutic treatment that removes impurities and infuses the skin with antioxidants, leaving your skin feeling renewed and rehydrated. Facials can be customized according to each individual’s skin type. This service can help to improve acne, improve skin tone and texture, and slow the aging process. A facial can improve your skin with no downtime, making them the perfect treatment to have done before a big event to ensure that you look your best. Come in to our office for a relaxing facial and leave with bright, beautiful skin!
