In addition to general dermatology and Moh’s surgery, Boulder Dermatology offers the following services. If you think one of these might be right for you, please schedule a consultation with one of our providers to discuss their benefits in detail.
Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds or laugh lines), the corners of the mouth and marionette lines — the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline.
Additionally, Restylane and Restylane® Silk are FDA-approved for lip enhancement in patients over the age of 21, and are uniquely formulated to give your lips fullness and definition.
Over time, the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and a reduction of volume. Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L®, is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face. Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and midface area, which can result in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.
Restylane Lyft is the first and only FDA-approved filler indicated to provide lift to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds).
The V-Beam is an FDA-approved pulsed-dye laser (wavelength 595nm) for vascular lesions including facial spider veins, rosacea, scars, stretch marks, leg veins, red birthmarks, and hemangiomas. It is safe for use on infants and children in addition to adults.
WHAT IS BOTOX COSMETIC?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows to form over time.
PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY (PDT)
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is a special treatment performed with a topical photosensitizing agent called Levulan, activated with the correct wavelength of light. We use the BLU-U device and/or V-Beam laser in our office. These treatments remove sun-damaged, precancerous zones and spots called actinic keratosis (AK). Sun damage and blotchy pigmentation are also improved. These treatments have the unique ability to minimize pore size, reduce oil glands, and to treat acne. Sun-damaged skin and active acne can improve dramatically.
