Our board-certified dermatologists specialize in many non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures including injectables as well as science-based treatments to improve the skin. We recognize that skin health and beauty go hand in hand, which is why we not only offer exceptional medical care, but also provide the most advanced cosmetic treatments. Cosmetic services available at Mt. Pleasant Dermatology include a vast array of procedures and treatments including the following:
Kybella™ is the first and only approved injectable drug for contouring moderate to severe submental fullness, a condition that is commonly referred to as a double chin. Kybella™ is a non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat, Kybella™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
A purified protein injected directly into specific facial muscles to relax them, resulting in softening of wrinkles. Botox® is safe and FDA approved. Click here for Pre and Post Procedure Instructions – Botox Xeomin
Silhouette InstaLift offers an excellent option for women and men who are looking for a natural, younger look but who don’t want to undergo a traditional surgical facelift or deal with the ongoing maintenance required with injectables three to four times a year. Silhouette InstaLift is a unique dual-action treatment that produces two desirable facial outcomes: an immediate lifting of the tissue in the mid-face area and a gradual regeneration of collagen to add volume, a result that gets better over time.
These are fillers that are injected along facial lines and folds to correct and smooth the skin surface. These can also be also used to enhance the lips to restore a subtle, youthful fullness. These fillers are all composed of hyaluronic acid which occurs naturally in our bodies.
JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel is indicated for injection into the mid-to-deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds).
Radiesse® is an injectable filler made from calcium based microspheres that is used to reduce the appearance of deep facial folds and wrinkles. Radiesse® is a safe and effective procedure providing patients with results that can typically last from six months to one year.
RADIESSE (+) is a dermal filler that temporarily adds volume to help smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth).
Sculptra® is an injectable filler that is used to restore and correct contour deficiencies and facial fat loss by stimulating collagen production. the collagen produced by your skin with Sculptra injections replaces the age related volume loss of the face and tightens the overlying skin. It can give you noticeable results that emerge subtly and can last for up to 2 years.
Blue Light Therapy offers patients an alternative to cryotherapy and topical creams for the treatment of actinic keratoses. It is a safe and effective way to treat a large number of actinic keratoses with a shorter healing time than topical creams. After Levulan is applied to the targeted area, patients will then be treated with a specific wavelength emitted by the blue light. Your eyes will be covered as you are treated under the lamp. You may experience slight discomfort while being treated. Afterwards, you may have some mild sunburn-like redness and peeling for a few days. It is important to use a sunscreen with zinc oxide and SPF 30 or higher for at least 48 hours following treatment, to prevent prolonged redness or peeling. Blue Light Therapy, with and without the application of Levulan, may also be used for the treatment of acne vulgaris.
Intense pulse light technology corrects brown discoloration, small veins, and rosacea of the face. The same treatment can be used on the neck, chest, arms, and hands.
A laser is used to produce a beam of concentrated light to safely destroy hair follicles of dark hairs, providing hair growth reduction and elimination of hairs. This treats unwanted hair in both men and women on the face, neck, and body.
