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.
