Botulinum Toxin (Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin) treatment is a revolutionary approach to reversing the affects facial wrinkles. Crow’s feet, worry lines and laugh lines can all be a thing of the past. These are referred to as dynamic wrinkle lines and all are treatable with this procedure. Cosmetic denervation is the process of injecting botox into the tiny facial muscles that create the wrinkles.
Before the procedure
To better understand your overall health, we will evaluate your medical history prior to the procedure. In addition, a complete examination of your eyes is made in order to decide the most effective injection sites. All issues and concerns will be discussed.
The areas that will be treated are marked and digital photographs are taken in order to determine the amount of improvement after surgery.
The injections are performed without anesthesia because it is virtually painless. Only a very small sting is felt when the injections are made. The effects are not permanent and may need to be repeated two to three times per year to retain the effects. Research has suggested, however, that long term use of the injections leads to a longer duration of each treatment’s effect. Patients over the age of 65 may not experience as dramatic of results. Botulinum Toxin is only useful in treating expression lines and cannot be used to repair sagging skin caused by aging.
After the injections patients may experience slight bruising around the area that quickly fades. Normal activities can be performed immediately. Possible side effects are temporary weakness of nearby muscles or in rare cases an eyelid may droop. Botulinum Toxin is completely reversible so any side effect is only a temporary condition. The doctor will explain all risks associated at the time of your consultation.
If you'd like to restore youthful fullness to your face, enjoy plump lips, enhance shallow contours or soften those facial creases and wrinkles, dermal fillers may be the answer. Dermal fillers have been called "liquid facelifts" because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime.
Although they can't help with excess sagging skin, these soft tissue fillers can add more volume and provide immediate results at a lower cost than surgery. These treatments aren't permanent, however, and they must be repeated and maintained.
Some dermal fillers are used in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation treatments such as injections of botulinum toxin. We will assess your needs and recommend one or a combination of treatments to achieve your desired results.
Chemical peel is helpful for wrinkles, light acne scarring and irregular pigmentation such as freckles and age spots. Pre-cancerous conditions such as keratoses (thick, rough, reddish growths) also respond well to this procedure.
Do you wish that you could simply peel signs of aging from your skin? We use chemical peels to do just this. A chemical peel can diminish many signs of aging on the face as well as the hands, neck, and chest.
Chemical peels also treat some skin conditions. We use chemical peels to treat some types of acne and conditions that discolor the skin.
Whether you receive a chemical peel to diminish signs of aging or treat a skin condition, you can see:
- Fewer lines and wrinkles.
- More even skin color.
- Brighter complexion.
- Smoother skin.
Some chemical peels require downtime.

- Dull complexion.
- Fine lines (especially under the eyes and around the mouth).
- Rough-feeling skin.
- Sun-damage skin.
Insurance coverage: Chemical peels are considered a cosmetic treatment. Insurance does not cover the cost of cosmetic treatments.
Gently heat internal and/or external tissue
Reclaim, restore, and revive without discomfort or downtime
ThermiVa treatments use temperature as a clinical endpoint. When heated, collagen fibrils will denature and contract, which is believed to lead to the observed tissue tightening.
Because the ThermiVa device has temperature control capability, the therapeutic endpoint for each patient is completely customizable.
- No discomfort or downtime
- Non-invasive, non-ablative, non-hormonal
- No anesthesia required
- Performed in-office
- Three 30-minute sessions, one month apart
- Long lasting results
Microneedling- The SkinPen Experience
As we age and battle skin conditions, the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates, which leads to fine lines, wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin texture. Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedeling, is a great way to address these signs of aging at the cellular level. Microneedling comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries to the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process. This results in skin remodeling, including the formation of collagen and elastin, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin. The outcome is beautiful, youthful looking skin.
DCSI has the Skin Pen which is the only US engineered and manufactured microneedling device on the market with patent-pending, single use, sterile needle cartridges.
