Non Surgical Procedures

Dr. Whitt performs the following non-surgical procedures including facial injections, chemical peels and laser techniques. Please contact our Louisville Kentucky office to inquire about a specific procedure.

Chemical Peels
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
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.

Juvederm™ is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid gel injectable that temporarily corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds for up to six months or longer.
