Juniper Dermatology offers Blu-U Blue Light Therapy treatment for acne as part of our effort to create customized acne treatment options for our patients. Light based therapies are great choices for patients who would like to avoid taking prescription medications for acne, such as antibiotics. Further, you can combine Blu-U Blue Light Therapy with other treatment options.
Wrinkles are a common problem for men and women as they age. In some cases, wrinkles make you appear tired and even angry. At Juniper Dermatology, one way we treat these problem areas is with Botox, which is a quick and virtually painless treatment that can help you to look rested and rejuvenated.
At Juniper Dermatology, we use a wide array of facial fillers and injectable treatments to treat wrinkles, smooth out fine lines and bring more volume to targeted areas of the face. Whether it’s improving crow’s feet, marionette lines, forehead wrinkles, or volumizing hollow cheeks; we have many solutions to fit your individual aesthetic goals and needs.
Juvederm® Voluma™ XC is a hyaluronic acid filler used by Juniper Dermatology to increase facial volume, especially in the cheeks. As people age, it is common for the cheek areas to lose volume, causing the face to appear hollow, and lead to sagging skin. This flattening and subsequent drooping of the skin can drastically change how you look and even create a sickly appearance.
Juniper Dermatology offers microneedling as an option for treating acne scars and wrinkles. This is a relatively quick procedure that can be performed in approximately one hour for a full face. There is very little down time and patients can typically go back to their regular skin care routines the very next day. For enhanced outcomes, microneedling can even be combined with other treatments, like PRP which uses your own plasma to reduce healing time and enhance skin rejuvenation.
Statistics show that about 1 in 6 Americans experience hair loss or hair thinning by the age of 35 and hair loss continues throughout their adult life. Topical creams and shampoos, along with surgical grafting, have been the go-to methods in years past to restore grow hair. These treatments can be costly and painful and don’t work for everyone.
When patients visit us to remove birthmarks, hyperpigmentation and tattoos, we may suggest the use of the Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser. This laser was designed to target various types of pigment in the skin, and can achieve significant lightening of pigmented lesions and tattoos.
Radiesse® is a unique dermal filler used by Juniper Dermatology to treat loss of facial volume. The filler creates immediate improvement by boosting volume under the skin and then helps your skin in the long term by stimulating collagen production in the treatment area. The collagen stimulating properties are one reason that results achieved with Radiesse are long-lasting, sometimes over one year.
Facial volume loss is a common occurrence with age, as fatty tissues beneath the skin deteriorate and become depleted. Sculptra was formulated specifically for the problem of lost facial volume and can provide long-lasting improvements by increasing the skin’s elasticity and stimulating the development of new collagen in the skin. Sculptra® is used by Juniper Dermatology to help patients reduce hollowness in the face induced by loss of fatty tissue, as well as to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
This simple procedure performed under local anesthesia is a powerful tool able to improve deeply depressed scars resulting from acne or any scar resulting from trauma or surgery that is depressed below the skin level. Many of these scars are depressed because of loss of skin thickness or tethering of the scar to deeper tissue. Subcision improves scar contour by removing the tether to deeper tissues, as well as creating new scar to replace lost tissue volume. This procedure can be performed on numerous acne scars of the face in one visit.
The Vbeam Laser® was created by Syneron Candela, one of the leaders in laser technology for skin care. The VBeam is an excellent laser choice for the treatment of broken capillaries, rosacea and red scars because the laser directly targets the oxyhemoglobin in blood vessels, without significantly affecting the surrounding healthy tissues. The treatment is very comfortable, with minimal downtime. Most patients return to normal social activities in less than 24 hours.
