Excessive use of facial muscles during expression and the added age factor often create unwanted frown lines in the face. These wrinkles are most bothersome in the forehead, in between the brows, and in the outer corners of the eyes.
Botox--a highly diluted bacterial toxin--injected into the muscles which cause the wrinkles, is capable of creating excellent elimination of frown lines and lasts four to six months. The procedure requires only a few minutes. Patients are able to return to work
BOTOX TREATMENT FOR SWEATY PALMS, UNDERARMS & FEET
Botox is a naturally occurring bacterial toxin which is capable of affecting the sweat producing nerves in the palms, underarms and feet. The toxin is superdiluted to ensure absolute safety. Injection in the palms requires additional knowledge of the nerves in the hand to avoid unwanted complications such as weakness. Palm injections are best performed by plastic surgeons specializing in hand surgery. As a plastic surgeon specializing in hand surgery, Dr. Thomas has the necessary additional qualification for this procedure. The effects last four to eleven months.

Restylane is safe and natural cosmetic dermal fillers that restore volume and fullness to the skin to correct wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, which are the lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Restylane is also used to enhance lips.
Restylane is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts by an ultra fine needle, resulting in minimal discomfort. The procedure is simple and convenient and results are practically instantaneous. To optimize your comfort during the short procedure, your physician may decide to numb the treatment area.
Restylane is proven to deliver long-lasting results. Follow-up treatments are typically scheduled at six-month intervals. (Individual results may vary.)
Radiesse (previously known as Radiance) is one of the longest lasting injectable implants. Because of it's components and duration, Radiesse is more aptly referred to as an implant rather than a filler. It is used for soft tissue augmentation in the correction of deep facial folds and creases and restoration of volume loss in hollow facial areas.
Radiesse consists of calcium hydroxylapatite microshperes suspended in gel. Because calcium hydroxylapatite is a normal constituent of bone, it should not elicit a chronic inflammatory or immune response. Radiesse does not require allergy testing. Radiesse is a safe, effective and non-surgical treatment, which provides immediate smoothing out of wrinkles and most scars.
The tiny microsphers provide scaffolding into which the bodies own tissue can grow and maintain the implant in place.
Radiesse has proven to be a very versatile facial contouring product and has demonstrated durable augmentation in areas such as chin and cheek where a larger volume is required. It maintains a soft, natural feel and takes on the characteristics of the surround skin tissue.
Individual results may vary, affected by age, skin type, lifestyle and muscle activity. Results typically last 1-2 years.
