Botox® Cosmetic is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles caused by repeated muscle contraction. It is injected under the skin into areas surrounding the eyes, forehead and mouth to smooth crow's feet, frown and worry lines, drooping mouth corners, bands in the neck and there are emerging uses for other facial improvements.
Botox has been used safely on millions of patients worldwide with virtually no side effects. It is a quick, minimally felt, affordable procedure with reproducible results.

Restylane® is a safe and natural dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to your skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds caused by loss of your "natural" hyaluronic acid and collagen breakdown.
Hyaluronic Acid is a sugar found naturally in your body that gives support to your skin. With time or accelerated by sun or smoke damage your body's hyaluronic acid weakens, forming wrinkles and lines. Restylane helps replenish the skin's natural support layer. The result is a smoother face and the elimination or softening of bothersome lines, wrinkles and deflated contours.

The first and only FDA approved lash growth serum. Proven to increase length, thickness and darkness of your natural lashes. Full effects in 16 weeks. Changes for most all patients are fairly dramatic. Latisse affects the growth cycle of the lash hairs, extending the growth phase so you have more lashes present which grow for longer periods of time to give incredible length.
For sparse eyebrows, precision application of Latisse can provide additional fill, too.

Dysport is the first "Botox" contender in the wrinkle relax arena. Action is very similar to Botox, with some variation of onset and diffusion. Is one better than the other? Our patients can choose either and get great results. In some cases both are used to customize the effects. Dysport inhibits muscle contraction, keeping your forehead wrinkles and worry lines "turned off'.

For the longest-lasting immediate correction of deep nasolabial folds, the lines running from the sides of the nose to the mouth, Radiesse is a successful instant-result injectable implant with a duration of of 1 to 2 years. Used in deeper folds, for cheek enhancement, chin augmentation and nose shaping. Radiesse is the core basis for hand rejuvenation to replace lost fat and tissue on the back of the hand.
Radiesse is composed of smooth round microspheres in a gel carrier. Your body's own collagen replaces the gel and surrounds the spheres, giving the skin a very natural feel and providing long-term results.

Juvederm is a very soft hyaluronic acid gel for filling wrinkles and plumping lips. Its special hyalacross technology makes it a soft and smooth product with a longer duration than previous collagen products. Two gel densities make it an all-around filler for superficial and deep wrinkles along with instant volume creation.
Presented as the most malleable HA gel, it's receiving kudos for being the most natural feeling lip enhancer.

A simple way to improve the texture of your skin and to reduce the signs of aging, scars or blemishes is with Chemical Peels. Chemical peels can help restore a younger, fresher appearance by removing a layer of skin with a chemical preparation. As your fresh new skin grows back, it's much smoother than before and imperfections are reduced.
You don't hear much about chemical peels these days, but they're still a staple in the effective maintenance of bright skin tone, smoothness and replacement of surface skin.

Unlike other injectable products, Sculptra® is not a site-specific wrinkle filler, but rather a re-volumizing agent that restores fullness and contours to correct the signs of facial fat and bone loss (volume loss). Facial "Deflation" happens to all of us as we age. This loss of volume results in sunken cheeks and temples, accentuated facial folds and shadowing and generalized facial deflation or drooping and is one of the primary reasons patients seek cosmetic treatment.
Restoration of soft tissue volume and contours, rather than the correction of a few individual lines, is possible with this product. Sculptra, a form of poly-l-lactic acid, is a very safe FDA approved biodegradable compound that has been used in a wide range of medical devices, including dissovable sutures, for more than 30 years. It has been used for facial augmentation in over 150,000 patients in over 30 countries since 1999. Sculptra is a collagen bio-activator, not a filler.
Sculptra has been used as a cosmetic correction for aging for over 12 years in 30 plus countries worldwide. In Europe the product is marketed under the name of NewFill.

Fractional Resurfacing with eMatrix
eMatrix uses Radio Frequency to resurface the skin. Because treatment is delivered for the most part UNDER the top layers of the skin, it is an excellent choice for skins with a tendency to darken from hyper pigmentation. Many lasers cause what is termed "post inflammatory hyperpigmentation". The eMatrix dramatically reduces that risk.
Best for skin resurfacing to remove sun damage, acne scarring and poor skin tone. A series of treatments is required for best response.

Ultrasound-induced heat creates collagen changes in the skin and lift/tightening in deeper tissues. Overall skin tightening and lift is accomplished from the skin's natural response to the delivery of deep heating to structural tissue. Ultherapy is the ONLY FDA approved treatment for lifting. Applicable to the brow, face and neck with potential uses on the body to include inner arms and thighs, lips, decolletage.

The Vbeam is a vascular laser used in Dermatology to diminish redness and spider veins, blend pigmentation, remove brown spots and turn down redness in acne scars and red stretch marks. Non-ablative lasers can also promote the rebuilding of collagen to help smooth the skin and lessen the appearance of wrinkles or scars.
Dr. Fitzgerald uses various lasers and light sources for the purposes listed above.

Lasers can efficiently reduce unwanted and excess hair growth with a series of treatments.
By the transfer of laser-induced heat to the hair follicle, active hair growth can be reduced both temporarily and permanently.
If you are tired of waxing, tweezing or shaving - or have hair patterns that are cosmetically unpleasing, then laser hair treatments are a wonderful option.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is an efficient and quick way to improve the color, tone and condition of sun-damaged skin. Brown patches and tiny vessels are lightened and removed by the light beam.
Photofacial has been a popular medical cosmetic procedure for a number of years. The light penetrates the skin and induces healthy new collagen growth at the same time it reduces signs of aging.
Photofacial IPL helps reverse the "brown" and "red" of sundamage. Find out more here ››

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is a highly effective procedure that destroys abnormal cells. These cells can be those of actinic keratosis (pre-cancerous rough areas on the skin). It is on some occasions used to treat acne should patients not be able to take oral medications.
PDT works by the use of a special solution that is absorbed by the abnormal cells. After absorption, a specific type of light triggers the solution to action and the "bad" cells are destroyed.
PhotoDynamic Therapy is becoming widely used as a primary solution removal of precancerous Actinic Keratoses (AK's).

Stubborn pigmentation has always been a big issue in areas where there's plenty of sun like Southern California. Physician prescribed programs are often required to manage hyperpigmentation successfully.
Cosmelan depigmentation treatment bases its action on the inhibition of the enzyme that triggers the formation of excess pigmentation (melanin) in the skin. When a melanin reaction is normally triggered by sun exposure, heat or injury, the use of Cosmelan blocks this reaction. Stopping the creation of melanin before it starts is the key.
Cosmelan depigmentation treatment involves a very versatile, dynamic process which is easily adapted to the needs of each individual patient.
