Many people would like to look younger and surgery is not the only way to achieve a more youthful or refreshed appearance. Nowadays, there are many non-surgical and inexpensive ways of treating your skin so that it appears more vibrant and toned.
For those patients who are beginning to show signs of aging, but who are not ready for surgery, we offer BOTOX®. Performed by Dr. Peled himself, BOTOX is a highly-purified substance administered in a non-surgical procedure and designed to minimize the effects of wrinkles caused by our facial muscles. Examples of these are the crow’s feet on the outside corners of the eyes and the wrinkles on the forehead. By temporarily weakening these muscles, the wrinkles caused by them can be eliminated or significantly reduced resulting in a more youthful appearance. Discomfort is minimal and brief and patients can resume their normal activities immediately. Occasionally, there is some redness in the treated area that dissipates within several hours. A significant improvement is usually seen in 5-7 days and the results will typically last 3-4 months.Read more

For those patients who are beginning to show signs of aging, but who are not ready for surgery, we also offer dermal fillers such as Juvéderm® which are used to minimize the appearance of moderate to fine wrinkles throughout the face. Examples of these types of wrinkles are the ones extending from the sides of the nose down to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds), the ones around the upper and lower lips (perioral rhytids), and those wrinkles which travel from the corners of the mouth down to the sides of the chin (marionette lines). Administered by Dr. Peled himself, Juvéderm® is the newest generation of a family of products called hyaluronic acids and is known for its smoothness and stability. What this means for the patient is a more precise placement and a more lasting result. Depending on the site of injection, a local anesthetic may be administered. Discomfort is minimal and brief and patients can resume their normal activities immediately. Occasionally there is some redness in the treated areas. A significant improvement can usually be seen right away and results often last 6 months or longer.Read more
