Neuromodulators (Botox, etc.) are one of the most commonly utilized treatments in cosmetic dermatology. They are very effective for eliminating moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles. At Ecker Dermatology, "neuromodulators" are both affordable and professionally performed. We have had significant training in optimally performing the injections as well as several years experience performing them. Botox treatments usually last 3 months. Many patients prefer to be treated quarterly to maintain results.
Fillers are effective in replacing lost volume of the face and providing scaffolding onto which new collagen can form. The most common fillers are hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. These have been studied extensively and have been proven to be very safe. The results are often remarkable. Botox can be combined with filler treatments to produce an even more stunning effect. Although there are many exceptions, Botox is for the upper face and fillers are for the lower face. Results can last up to 12 months, but a more typical timeframe is 6-9 months.
Peels can be very effective for eliminating sun spots, age spots, melasma, fine wrinkles, blemishes, and acne scars. They work by eliminating the top layers of your skin, which can be damaged. The peel process triggers the production of new collagen and elastin and, as a result, erases fine lines and wrinkles, evens out skin discoloration, and improves skin texture. There are several different kinds of peels. Two more commonly utilized ones (superficial to medium depth peels) include glycolic, TCA, and salicylic acid peels. They are typically performed every 2-4 weeks until the desired results are achieved (typically 4-6 treatments). These prescription peels can achieve a lot where other over the counter options have failed. If you are ready to re-energize your face and give it a more youthful glow, call to schedule your peels today.
Microneedling or microtherapy is a great treatment for resurfacing, evening out complexion, and for treating acne scars.
There are many other cosmetic procedures that Dr. Ecker and his team routinely perform, including mole removal, birth mark removal, and much more.
