peels and laser techniques. Please contact our Louisville Kentucky

Using a chemical solution, chemical peels are used to remove the damaged outer layers of facial skin
to improve and smooth the texture. It is used for those individuals with facial blemishes, wrinkles
and uneven skin pigmentation.
Laser resurfacing, also known as laser peeling, is an effective facial rejuvenation technique that
can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles of the entire face, or those that develop in
specific regions of the face. A variety of lasers and intense pulsed light devices are used to
achieve a wide range of benefits.
The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, often referred to by its product name BOTOX®, is a popular
non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crows
feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily
paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance.
Sculptra® and Radiesse
Soft tissue fillers being used for their wrinkle reducing and volume-adding qualities are
Sculptra® and Radiesse®. Radiesse® is injected into the face adding volume through microspheres
that are suspended in polysaccharide carriers until encapsulation occurs. Sculptra®, which is made
of synthetic polylactic acid contained in microspheres, is approved by the FDA for restoration
and/or correction of the signs of facial fat loss (lipoatrophy) in people with human immunodeficiency virus.
Restylane® is an FDA approved injectable used for filling moderate to severe wrinkles around the
nose and month.
