Botox works as a “neurotoxin” and is injected to relax facial wrinkles and treat medical conditions such as excess sweating, eyelid spasms, and more. The cosmetic treatment works by blocking impulse signals from the nerve to the muscle. This causes facial lines to relax, soften, and create a less aged appearance.
Dermabrasion and derma planing are cosmetic treatments that help refine the top layers of the skin. It uses a method known as controlled surgical scraping. The treatments will soften the edges of surface imperfections, creating a more firm and smooth appearance for the skin.
Facial Scar Revision
Injuries can affect everyone and can sometimes leave undesirable scars that last for long lengths of time. Scars can also arrive from disease or a previous surgery. The scar can affect your self-consciousness or even remind you of unpleasant memories.
Dr. Lesavoy offers facial scar revision in Beverly Hills to reduce the visibility of scars. He is trained in evaluating skin and the severity of the scar to prepare the best treatment plan for you.
The effects of aging and exposure to the sun can cause lines, wrinkles, or brown spots to appear on our face. Laser skin resurfacing is an available procedure that can rectify these conditions and make your skin look younger and healthier.
Laser skin resurfacing, also known as laser peel, is a method of removing damaged skin with a laser light beam. The beam can remove facial imperfections and treat fine lines, acne scars, brown spots, or sun damaged skin.
Offered at Dr. Lesavoy’s office, skin-revitalization treatments are most recommended for patients who seek an improved complexion in the amount of recovery time associated with extensive skin resurfacing procedures.
A special topical treatment can be an option, which can be part of your home skin-care regime or a gentle revitalizing treatment at the office. A nurse of trained esthetician will be able to implement the revitalizing treatment or provide instructions for the use of a topical cream, lotion, or gel.
