Aging is a continuous process that generally begins in our mid-20s. Intrinsic aging is the natural aging process our body experiences, such as loss of collagen and elastin production, decrease of new skin cell production and the slowing of desquamation, the body’s natural shedding of dead cells. Extrinsic aging is caused by external factors, which cause premature aging. Sun exposure, smoking, pollution, and repetitive facial expressions are common causes of extrinsic aging.
Fine lines, wrinkles, thin transparent skin, and hyper pigmentation are all distinctive changes in the skin associated with the aging process. With the use of dermal fillers, Botox® and highly-effective laser treatments, Dr. Raphael Darvish can reduce and eliminate signs of premature aging.
Deep wrinkles are caused in large part by a loss of volume in the tissue below the skin, which injectable dermal fillers can restore, such as Juvéderm® and Restylane®, and Radiesse®. Botox® Cosmetic works by reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent frown lines that have developed over time. Botox can temporarily reduce moderate to severe lines, giving you a more relaxed and rejuvenated look.
The Fractionated Laser Treatment (FLT) is an innovative, non-invasive laser therapy designed to dramatically repair fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars while improving skin texture and pigmentation – even on delicate skin.
Photofacial involves a series of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments that improve the appearance of Rosacea, flushing and sun-damaged skin, age spots, skin texture, and photo aging. Treatment also improves the appearance of mild acne scars, reduces large pores, corrects dark circles around the eyes, and reduces fine lines.
