Botox Cosmetic is a popular injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance.

Chemical peels use a chemical solution to remove damaged outer skin layers, improving the texture of the facial skin. It is helpful if you have facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation.
Hyaluronic acid injections can correct wrinkles or reduce depressions in the skin due to scars, injury or lines. The substance acts like a cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity due to aging.
Soft-tissue fillers can help fill in lines and creases, temporarily restoring a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance. When injected beneath the skin, these fillers plump up creased and sunken areas of the face.
In laser skin resurfacing a laser is used to remove areas of damaged or wrinkled skin, layer by layer. The procedure is often used to minimize the appearance of fine lines, especially around the mouth and the eyes.
Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation technique that helps repair facial skin. Using a device like a fine sandblaster, the physician sprays tiny crystals across the skin, mixing gentle abrasion with suction to remove the dull outer skin cells.
In this rather simple procedure, veins are injected with a sclerosing solution, which causes them to collapse and fade from view. The procedure may also remedy the bothersome symptoms associated with spider veins.
