Botulinum Toxin (Botox)
Botulinum toxin injections are among the most popular and sought-after treatments at SelectSkinMD. The toxin is injected in minute amounts to prevent contraction of the targeted muscle, effectively treating wrinkles of the forehead and around the eyes(crows feet). Botulinum toxin injections are safe and convenient, and provide natural and reproducible results. Dr. Srivastava takes pride in her ability to keep patients looking natural and not “frozen”.
Fillers are among the most popular procedures performed SelectSkinMD because they offer patients a safe and effective method of rejuvenating the face. Fillers can provide outstanding cosmetic results without the downtime associated with traditional surgical procedures.
These products have become quite popular among younger individuals who prefer to intervene at an earlier stage of wrinkle development, and they continue to be popular alternatives to more invasive surgical procedures in older individuals. Fillers can be used to improve the appearance of fine lines, deeper wrinkles and folds, hollows, volume loss, and acne scarring. Additionally, fillers can be used to enhance the fullness of the lips and for facial contouring. Dr. Srivastava takes a “less is more” approach and always strives to keep the patients looking like a refreshed version of themselves.
SelectSkinMD is pleased to offer hyaluronic acid fillers including Restylane, Juvederm, and Belotero.
The use of fillers is safe, effective, and convenient. Most of these fillers can be administered on the day of consultation. Make sure to discontinue any unnecessary blood thinners like Aspirin, NSAIDs, Vitamin E and Fish Oil to minimize bruising. We usually recommend coming into the office at least 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment time so that we can apply a topical anesthetic cream to minimize any discomfort associated with the injections.
