Cosmetic Dermatology

The Advanced Institute of Dermatology offers the following Cosmetic Dermatology treatments in their Palm Desert California office:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic
  • Dysport®
  • Restylane®
  • Juvéderm® Injectable Gel
  • Spider Vein Treatments
  • Chemical Peels

After treatment, the appearance of your wrinkles begins to improve within 24 hours, with full results developing gradually over the next five days. Most patients achieve their desired results after just one injection, although additional treatment sessions may be required in the future. The results of Botox injections typically last up to four months.

Dysport® injections are ideal for nearly anyone wishing to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face and restore a younger, more refreshed appearance. The injections are administered directly into the facial muscles that cause frown lines and other wrinkles.

Approved by the FDA, Restylane is designed to match your skin, smoothing wrinkles, sculpting lips or shaping facial contours. The most common areas for a Restylane treatment are the glabellar lines (between the eyebrows) and the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of your mouth). When used for lips or facial contouring, Restylane will add shape and volume to the area. Restylane is able to create volume under your wrinkles, which are then lifted up and smoothed out.

Restylane Lyft
Restylane Lyft® 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®, Restylane Lyft 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 does not require a pre-treatment skin test.

Juvéderm® Injectable Gel
Juvéderm® is an FDA-approved smooth consistency gel capable of restoring volume to the skin while smoothing away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. This injection is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that adds volume and hydration.

Spider Vein Treatments
The standard treatment for both spider and varicose veins is sclerotherapy, which involving injecting a sclerosing solution into the affected veins, causing them to gradually disappear. This procedure is performed in the doctor’s office and takes no more than an hour. Most patients require two to four treatment sessions in order to achieve their desired results.

Chemical Peels
Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin on the face to smooth texture, reduce scarring, and remove blemishes to produce healthy, glowing skin. There are three types of chemical peels, ranging from mild to strong – alphahydroxy acids (AHAs), trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and phenol – and formula strengths are tailored to each patient. Peels can be combined with other procedures for a younger look.

This advanced skin renewal treatment features the popular beta hydroxy acid and is offered only by your dermatologist. It takes just five minutes, but its visible results appear to lift years off your face.

With B-LIFTx®, there is no downtime, your skin immediately looks and feels smoother and tighter. Your face may temporarily appear a bit rosy. In a day or two, your face may begin peeling.
