Minor Procedures & Injectables

Posted on October 26, 2010

Lipoma Removal

A lipoma is a collection of fat cells located in a thin capsule, usually found superficially just underneath the skin. Lipomas can grow anywhere on the body, and sometimes can be cosmetically unacceptable. Lipoma removal can be performed with a small surgical incision, and the wound can be carefully closed to leave as minimal a scar as possible

Keloid removal

Keloids are a special type of skin lesion in which normal skin healing is disrupted and the scar continues to grow. These lesions can often be seen after ear piercing, or after skin injury to the shoulder, chest, or back. Keloids can be removed surgically, and then generally a steroid injection is performed to minimize the chance of recurrence.

Scar revision

Scars from prior surgery or from accidental injury can sometimes heal in an undesirable fashion. While scars can not be eliminated, they can often be improved in appearance, either by making them appear finer, or re-orienting them in a direction that hides them more effectively.

Botox & Dysport

These injectables are appropriate for active lines or age-associated wrinkles that are just starting to appear. These compounds temporarily weaken or paralyze the muscle that is causing the wrinkle.

Injectable fillers

Injectable fillers are useful for treatment of established wrinkles or larger lines of facial aging (such as the nasolabial folds or marionette lines).   Fillers can also restore volume to the face and can add structure as well.  Depending on the type of filler and the depth at which it is injected, injectable fillers can smooth fine lines on the surface of the skin, fill out deep lines, augment soft tissues (such as the lips), or even effectively augment facial bone structure.
