At Southside Dermatology, a Botox treatment takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes to perform. Our doctor uses an individual fine needle for each injection site so that there is very little discomfort associated with the procedure. In fact, one may resume normal activities immediately following treatment. Results will begin to occur within several days, as lines and wrinkles gradually diminish. Results generally last up to four months, however with repeated treatments, the natural, youthful effects may begin to last longer.
Moles are growths on our skin that can be present at birth or show up later in life. They can be light or dark, flat or raised and can be seen on any part of our body. They are sometimes removed by the dermatologist to make sure they are not cancerous but mostly they are removed for cosmetic reasons. The most reasonable removal methods are the shave technique and the full excision method. The first method is easier and tends to leave less of a scar.
Sun exposure, hormonal changes, and aging can impact the skin over time, resulting in loss of facial volume and a tired, sunken appearance. Unlike surgical face lifts which stretch the skin, dermal fillers work by reducing wrinkles and folds, and restoring volume for a more natural, refreshed appearance – without the risks and recovery time associated with invasive facial surgery. At Southside Dermatology, dermal filler treatments take less than an hour to perform, and will transform your appearance instantly.
