Get Rid of Wrinkles with Dysport

Do you want a solution for fine lines and wrinkles? Dysport may be the right solution for you. Dysport is an injection that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Dysport is traditionally injected between the eyebrows. Unlike Botox, Dysport will not change the appearance of your face or hinder the natural movement of your face. The muscles that do not receive the Dysport injection will not be affected, so you will be able to move the rest of your face normally. Dysport is administered by Dr. Joseph Guarino, a board-certified physician, in our Hamilton, NJ med spa.

What To Expect

During your consultation, Dr. Guarino will determine if Dysport is right for you. If Dysport is right for you, Dr. Guarino will explain the details of your treatment plan. Typically, Dysport treatment will take anywhere from 15-20 minutes in our Hamilton Med Spa. Dysport usually lasts up to 4 months and patients can expect to see results in 2-3 days. Dysport requires little to no downtime so patients can continue on with their day after treatment. Dysport may not be the right solution for you, but we do offer a wide range of services that can address your needs. Dr. Guarino will work with you to help you achieve your desired look. We take the time to plan a treatment that is effective and safe. To see if Dysport is right for you, you can contact Derma Cosmedica in Hamilton, NJ. Patients can call our Hamilton med spa to schedule a consultation or schedule a consultation online.

Dermaplaning For A Beautiful Glow

Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that carefully removes the top layer of the skin. What sets dermaplaning apart from other traditional exfoliation methods is the use of a special surgical blade that is used to gently glide over the skin to remove vellus hair and dead skin cells from the face. With the removal of vellus hair, clients may enjoy the benefits of a smoother makeup application and notably brighter skin. Dermaplaning can even help improve the appearance of common skin issues like acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. After your dermaplaning treatment, you can expect brighter, smoother, and more flawless looking skin. Dermaplaning can also be used in conjunction with other services like chemical peels and facials. To see if derm planing is right for you, schedule a consultation at our Hamilton, NJ med spa. At Derma Cosmedica in Hamilton, NJ, we work with you to help you achieve the results you desire.

Commonly Asked Questions About Dermaplaning

  • Does dermaplaning hurt?
Your esthetician uses a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently remove unwanted hair and dead skin cells from the face.
  • How long does the dermaplaning treatment take to complete?
Treatment can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour.
    • What can expect after the dermaplaning treatment?
The results of dermaplaning are noticeably visible after treatment. Your skin will be free of 'peach fuzz,' and your skin will be noticeably smoother.

About Botox®

Dr. Guarino offers natural and effective results using regular Botox® injections to reduce the appearance of aging skin. Most patients enjoy the benefits of a Botox treatment for up to four months. Botox® works by paralyzing the muscles that create wrinkles. By preventing movement of the muscles, skin appears firmer, smoother and younger.

Patients typically experience little to no discomfort and downtimes are minimal, with most patients returning to their daily routines right after their injections.

Why Botox®?

Looking and feeling your best can be good for you, physically, mentally and emotionally. Botox® can help improve your self-confidence and make you feel more in control of your aging process. With improved and highly skilled techniques, Dr. Guarino can administer Botox® for highly natural and beautiful results without a frozen or stiff look.

Photo Rejuvenation For Sun Damaged Skin

Even though you've been hiding behind hats and under umbrellas this summer odds are you've been exposed to the sun's harmful rays. Sun exposure can contribute greatly to  premature aging in the form of sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles.   DermaCosmedica in Trenton, NJ offers Photo Rejuvenation to help correct and reverse the signs of premature aging. Facial and photo rejuvenation is possible with a Broadband Photo facial light, also known as BBL (for Broadband light). These treatments are often performed on the chest, shoulders, neck, face, and backs of the hands where the greatest amount of sun exposure commonly occurs.   These treatments are not invasive in any way, but they do treat a variety of cosmetic skin concerns. In addition to sun damage, BBL Treatments can also effectively treat acne and acne scars, other scars, small fine lines and wrinkles, small veins in the facial area, and rosacea.   The procedure itself works by heating up the layers of the skin, leading to an increase in collagen production. The increased amount of collagen helps to leave the skin smoother and firmer, giving it a younger look and reducing the signs of aging and damage.   Depending on the size of the area that is being treated, facial and photo rejuvenation can take just a couple of minutes, or full half-hour. In order to achieve the results desired, more than one treatment is usually needed, but often the target results can be enjoyed in two to four treatments.   Those who need photo facial in Trenton, NJ or photo rejuvenation in Hamilton can find that youthful, healthy-looking skin is within their reach!       SaveSave SaveSaveSaveSave SaveSaveSaveSave
