Questions and Answers
Botox and Dysport are also the toxin injections that I use to soften what I like to call expression lines. These are the lines that are around your eyes when you smile and in your forehead when you make a frown or raise your eyebrows. Botox and Dysport are both powders that are dissolved in water, unlike fillers that are mostly gels and work on the lines you have at rest. Toxins work on the lines you have when you make expressions. You have to be careful with toxins. If you put in too much you look surprised and have a shiny forehead. Your friends will be able to tell from across the room. I really try to encourage the idea that less is more. If you want more you can always come back for a complementary touch-up, but let’s try to get away with the least amount of injections possible. Toxins fade gradually over time and tend to last 2-6 months.
We offer superficial and medium depth chemical peels in our office to help with pigmentation, acne and skin texture. Depending on your goals and expectations, we can review what will be best for you.
We have most patients answer a hair loss questionnaire to determine the main causes of hair loss. I use the Regen Lab PRP kit for hair loss and skin rejuvenation and will soon start using the CosmoFrance PRF treatment in place of and in addition to fillers.
Kybella is an injection targeted towards that fat under your chin. The advantage to Kybella is that no stitches are required. Kybella is a great non-surgical option to tighten skin under your neck.
We aim for you never to feel rushed and have designated time slots for more lengthy Skin Cancer Screening/Total Body Check visits. Sometimes this may mean that certain concerns that also require a longer visit for example hair loss may need to be spread out over more than one visit. We are happy to accommodate this.
We have built a boutique practice that has grown due to a commitment to excellence, word of mouth and a strong referral base. Sometimes this means that you may have to wait 6-8 weeks for an appointment for a non-urgent issue. This can be frustrating. I remind patients though that often good doctors have a longer wait and I do think we are worth it. The way practices often get around the wait is they add associates or physician extenders to see patients in their stead—or you see the primary physician first and then a physician extender for follow ups. I have chosen not to do this in my practice. While physician extenders are wonderful, your relationship is with me. I also still participate in most insurance plans. I feel that as many people should have access to see me as possible. All of these things combined may mean that there is a wait to get an appointment. Once you are in the office, we always plan to run on time.
Medicine is an art that should be practiced with integrity.
