Botox & Fillers

Botox-A, a neurotoxin is helpful for the treatment of crow's feet and forehead lines. Patients generally tolerate this treatment well and experienced a relaxed and refreshed look. Botox is typically needed every 3-4 months. Botox-A is not covered by insurance.


Psoriasis, a chronic, benign, non-contagious skin inflammation that presents itself in the form of a rash characterized by redness and fixed silvery scales on the scalp, elbows, backs of knees, buttocks, and lower back, as well as around the ear canal.Oftentimes a genetic predisposition exists. Psoriasis can also sometimes affect the joints-a painful condition known as psoriatic arthritis that presents with morning joint pain/stiffness and swelling. Factors such as stress, infections, obesity, alcoholism, smoking and certain medications can cause symptoms to worsen. Treatment involves identifying the severity of the disease to determine the best treatment option and avoiding risk factors. Typically, the treatment starts with topical corticosteroids and can also involve oral medications or injectable medications.



Acne Vulgaris (more commonly known as acne), a common skin condition of adolescence. During this time, hormones often causes the skin to produce excess sebum, combined with irritation of hair follicles and bacteria on the surface of the skin leading to the outbreak of acne. Hormonal changes can also occur in older women and produce acne after age 30. For these patients and for women whose acne especially flares right before menses, a treatment regimen will be tailored to treat this issue.
