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 enjoy almost immediate results after injections. 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.

Choosing DermaCosmedica for Botox®

Botox® treatments at DermaCosmedica are administered by Dr.Guarino and are tailored to each individual.  Dr. Guarino and his staff complete an initial consultation to understand each patient's goals and needs. DermaCosmedica offers expert treatment and competitive pricing to Trenton and Hamilton, NJ Botox® patients.

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

Love Your Lashes Again With Latisse®!

Did you know that according to studies, by age fifty women have 50 percent less eyelashes than at age twenty five?!  Yes, age can also reek havoc on your lashes.  Just like the rest of your face, time can take an unflattering toll on your eyelashes.  Luckily, there's an anti-aging product for that-- Latisse®. Solutions For Thin,  Short, or No Eyelashes LATISSE_00_shannonToday's trend in lash length is LONG.  Mascaras and extensions can give you the illusion of luscious lashes but they are often difficult and messy to apply.  Not to mention, these options can be just as hard to remove. Latisse® is an effective FDA approved treatment for growing thicker, longer, and darker lashes. It is a topical serum prescribed by a doctor to ensure proper treatment and usage.   How Does Latisse®Work? Latisse® makes lash growth possible because of its active ingredient, bimatoprost. Research suggests bimatoprost prolongs the growth phase of lashes, which allows lashes to grow longer, thicker and darker. When using the Latisse® solution as directed, it will increase the percentage of hairs in the active growth phase, as well as make the active growth phase longer.  It is applied once a day to the base of your upper eyelashes. Results can be seen over time.  Gradual growth may appear early on, but Latisse® must be used daily for maximum results over a 16 week period.  At the end of this time you can talk to your doctor about continued use. Turn back the clock on your lashes.  Schedule an appointment at DermaCosmedica to find out if Latisse® is right for you.

Get Ready For Summer With IPL Hair Removal

Woman coming out of swimming pool Removing unwanted hair can become quite tedious. Shaving is the fastest way to remove unwanted hair, but the results only last one or two days. Shaving can also leave behind unwanted stubble and razor bumps. Waxing can last up to eight weeks, but it can be very painful. It can also irritate the skin. IPL professional hair removal is a method that can permanently reduce hair growth. It can be used on the chest, face, legs, arms, stomach, thighs and bikini line. Most people only require between four and six treatments before they see the results. What are the benefits of IPL hair removal?
  • IPL hair removal works well for most skin tones
  • It is more precise than shaving or waxing
  • It destroys the hair follicle for permanent hair reduction
  • It can save you money in the long run by cutting out waxing treatments and shaving supplies
  • It is safe, effective and FDA approved.
There is minimal preparation needed for IPL hair removal. Patients should make sure that they limit sun exposure for at least six weeks before their treatment. Sun exposure decreases the efficacy of laser hair removal, and it also increases the likelihood of complications. The amount of time that IPL hair removal takes can vary, depending on the area of the body that is being treated. Small areas of the body, such as the chin or upper lip, can be treated in less time. It may take up to an hour to treat large areas of the body, such as the legs or back. To get permanent hair reduction before swimsuit season contact DermaCosmedica in Hamilton, NJ.  Dr. Guarino and his staff will review the IPL process with you prior to treatment.  Your IPL sessions are recommended to be scheduled every 2 weeks or up to once a month.  Schedule your consultation and receive a personal treatment plan today...609.389.9671.
