It is a topical treatment, applied once-a-day, to the base of the upper eyelid.

  • Skin darkening
  • Eye irritation, dryness and redness of the eyelids
  • Clinical trials conducted by Allergan, makers of LATISSE® saw results in approximates 8 weeks with full results occurring in 12 to 16 weeks.

RADIESSE®

RADIESSE® is a dermal filler that is injected into the skin to enhance one’s existing features and restore a more healthy appearance to the skin. RADIESSE is different from other dermal fillers because of its long lasting effects. RADIESSE has a unique formulation that stimulates the production of your body’s own collagen. This allows for wrinkle correction that lasts up to a year or more. RADIESSE is made of a calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. Here’s how it works:

  • Dr. Doezie injects RADIESSE into the skin to add volume to facial features
  • The small microspheres begin to dissolve stimulating the production of new collagen
  • The new collagen tissue then envelops the microspheres
  • The microspheres eventually dissolve completely and are metabolized by the body

RADIESSE has been clinically tested and has excellent safety results. It has been approved by the FDA and has virtually no risk of allergic reaction. Read more about dermal fillers here…

SCULPTRA®

Sculptra is a synthetic injectable dermal filler made of poly-L-lactic acid. This material has been used for several years for the correction of scars, wrinkles and in dissolvable stitches and soft tissue implants. Sculptra can improve the appearance of facial fat loss and restore a youthful appearance to the face. Sculptra may require between 3 to 5 treatments. However, in clinical studies, Sculptra results lasted for up to 2 years after the first treatment. Like other dermal fillers Sculptra:

  • Is carefully implanted in the skin and then molded for optimal results
  • Stimulates the formation of new collagen in the skin
  • Restores volume to facial contours

Sculptra is often used in combination with other facial procedures such as facials or Botox® Cosmetic injections. Read more about dermal fillers here…

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Botox® Cosmetic is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in Orange County. It is used to treate moderate to severe frown lines and lines that occur between the brows, near the eyes and on the side of the nose. These lines often occur because of constant muscle movement in the area over time. When skin starts to lose its innate elasticity with age, folds or furrows appear.

JUVEDERM®

Juvederm® is an injectable gel formulation that adds volume to the face and helps minimize the appearance of wrinkles and folds. Juvederm® is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin. As hyaluronic acid diminishes over time, wrinkles and folds appear. Juvederm® helps by restoring hyaluronic acid, hydrating the skin and adding volume. Juvederm® XC contains lidocaine so patients experience less discomfort during treatment. Juvederm® injections can be done during an office visit with Dr. Doezie. During your visit Dr. Doezie will:

  • Ask your doctor about your medical history including allergies
  • Examine the soft tissue of your face and determine your treatment requirements
  • Consider the use of anesthesia, although it is not required
  • Inject Juvederm® into the treatment areas
  • Gently message and smooth the treatment areas

Currently Juvederm® is the only hyaluronic acid filler FDA approved to last up to 1 year. Read more about Juvederm®
