COSMETIC PROCEDURES NOW OFFERED

Whether you spend a lot of time in front of the mirror or you avoid your reflection…at some point you will begin to notice the subtle signs of aging. Your sense of youth is compromised by the hint of wrinkles around your eyes or lips. Perhaps you have spent much of your youth or adult life participating in sporting activities that provided long hours of sun exposure and you begin to notice the appearance of darkened age spots or sagging skin. While there used to be very few options for “turning back the clock” without cosmetic surgery, today you can soften the signs of aging with a wide range of non-surgical procedures for the face and body.

Dr. Jennifer Smith, one of our newest family medicine/OB providers, has recently become certified in the field of cosmetic procedures that
will include:

BOTOX® INJECTIONS

  • prevents wrinkles from forming and improves
  • existing wrinkle appearance
  • relaxes muscles responsible for expressionlines in the face 

JuvedermTM (dermal fillers)

  • gel-based injection which smooths out facial wrinkles, folds and deep creases
  • provides volume and fullness to the skin

Laser-based hair removal

  • heat from laser light is conducted into the bulb (beginning of a hair follicle) causing damage to the hair follicle so that it will nolonger produce hairs

Laser-based wrinkle reduction

  • non-ablative procedure decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • improves skin’s texture
  • alleviates dark pigmentation
  • reduces the appearance of acne scars and tissue damage

Pulse light photo facial

  • photo rejuvenation uses a series of gentle pulses of intense light over the skin
  • improves sun spots, age spots, uneven pigmentation, large pores, red flushing and more

Sclerotherapy

  • vein removal and reduction for spider veins
  • injection of irritant solutions into unwanted veins
  • patients can expect 50-90% visual improvement

Each of these options is considered a non-surgical procedure and typically requires multiple treatments. UHD is equipped to provide superior treatments for people of all ages and all skin types. So, whether you are looking to soften the signs of aging, remove unwanted hair, rejuvenate your facial skin, remove acne or warts, reduce wrinkles or treat your spider veins—consider talking with Dr. Smith at UHD and take a look at your options.
