Chemical peels can reduce fine lines, especially under the eyes and around the mouth, treat mild scarring and certain types of acne, help diminish skin discoloration, such as age spots, liver spots, sun spots or freckles, and can help to refresh skin texture and color.
Facial chemical peels are used to improve the skin's appearance by applying a chemical solution to the skin, causing the top layers of skin to separate and peel off. The new skin is smoother; less wrinkled, and will likely be more even in color. Facial peels are used to revitalize skin, as they exfoliate dead skin and help to help shrink pores while also reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Results can often be enhanced with other techniques like laser/light-based rejuvenation or with other procedures, such as dermal fillers.
At Skin Physicians & Surgeons, we offer 3 types of chemical peels that are classified by their depth of penetration – Superficial, Medium and Deep strength. These include Glycolic Acid Peels, Beta-lift (for acne treatment), Salicylic Acid Peels, Vitalize Peels (our most popular chemical peel), Revitalize Peels, and Trichloroacetic Acid Peels (for deeper peels)
How much does a chemical peel cost?
- Beta-Lift Chemical Peel: a 20-30% salicylic acid chemical peel to treat acne and improve pigmentation. ($80 for 1 treatment or $200 for 3 treatments)
- Illuminize Chemical Peel: "liquid" microdermabrasion ($100)
- Rejuvenize Chemical Peel: A deeper chemical peel used for sun damage, reducing lines and wrinkles, acne treatment, acne scarring, dark spots, and melasma ($160)
- Vitalize Chemical Peel: excellent exfoliating peel to diminish dark spots, freckles, fine lines; includes treatment with tomical retinoid ($130 for 1 treatment, $350 for 3 treatments or $650 for 6 treatments).
- Melanage Chemical Peel: A superficial chemical peel designed to significantly improve the texture and appearance of hyperpigmented skin which includes a medicated masque and an at-home regimen ($600)

At Skin Physicians & Surgeons, we can repair stretched or torn earlobes in our office using only local anesthetic. Torn and elongated ear lobes can be repaired with a minor surgical procedure while most torn ear lobes can be repaired by simply taking out the edges of the tear and repositioning the new edges evenly and allowing them to heal in place.
Elongated and misshaped earlobes can be shortened or reshaped to provide a more attractive, youthful appearance. If your problem is that your earrings tend to point downward, you can see significant improvement after using a filler injection (Restylane or Juvederm) which will make thin earlobes thicker and help to support those heavy, down-turned earrings.

What is Dysport?
Dysport is the new Botox™ Cosmetic competitor. While it's composed of the same active ingredient as Botox™ Cosmetic, preliminary studies show that Dysport may provide a faster onset of action and may last a month or so longer!
What can Dysport do for you?
Whenever you laugh, frown, concentrate or squint into the sun, your facial muscles contract and your skin creases. As you get older your skin loses its elasticity and those creases deepen into lines that become permanently etched on your face. Frown lines between your eyes can become particularly noticeable at a relatively young age, making you look angry or worried even when you're not.
By temporarily immobilizing the muscles you use to frown, Dysport can smooth out those lines, restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face. Because you will be physically unable to frown after treatment, you may even lose the urge to frown. The lasting effect of treatment with Dysport can differ between individuals after which further courses of treatment may be necessary. Speak with your cosmetic specialist about the results you can expect with Dysport.
Many people find after several Dysport treatments that they don't need another treatment for much longer because they have "unlearned" the habit of frowning or squinting that originally led to the development of these lines.
Call 909-981-8929 to schedule your Dysport treatment.
What is Evolence® Dermal Filler?
Evolence® dermal filler represents a breakthrough in treating the effects of aging by replacing the collagen you've lost with collagen that lasts. A truly novel dermal filler, Evolence® can immediately improve and refresh your appearance by smoothing out and softening the appearance of unwanted facial wrinkles and folds and restoring structure and facial contour in volume-depleted areas.
The visible, natural-looking results are achieved immediately, with minimal-to-no downtime, so you can get right back to your daily activities. Evolence® is the first and only collagen dermal filler to provide immediate results that last through 12 months so you avoid the costly repeat treatments often associated with other fillers.
Evolence® is injected by a trained physician or aesthetic professional and your desired results may be achieved in just 1 visit. Only your physician or aesthetic professional can determine the best treatment approach for achieving your desired results.
Why is collagen so important for achieving a refreshed, youthful appearance?
Collagen is nature's most fundamental and abundant building block. In fact, collagen makes up to 80% of our skin's dermis, providing structure, strength, and support. Collagen depletes naturally over time as we age, leading to a tired or aged appearance. This happens through the formation of new wrinkles, folds and changes in facial contour and structure.
The natural pace of collagen loss can be accelerated by such factors as sun exposure, genetics, hormonal changes, and smoking. By replacing lost collagen with an advanced collagen compound that lasts, EVOLENCE® dermal filler can help enhance and maintain the structure, volume, and naturally younger-looking appearance of your skin.
How long has Evolence® dermal filler been used?
While introduced to the US in late 2008, Evolence® has been used safely and extensively throughout Canada, Europe, Israel and Asia for several years.
What make Evolence® dermal filler different?
Evolence® dermal filler is made of natural collagen, one of the most prevalent materials in your body. The advanced collagen in Evolence® has been naturally cross-linked, so it mimics the 3-dimensional structure of your skin's own collagen. This allows it to integrate beautifully and support your skin's own existing collagen network by adding structure, strength, and volume for a natural look and feel that lasts.
- Evolence® achieves immediate, natural-looking results, so you can walk out of your aesthetic professional's office looking beautifully refreshed.
- Evolence® causes minimal-to-no swelling or bruising, so you can get back to your regular daily activities.
- Evolence® lasts 12+ months so it's convenient and reduces costly repeat visits.
- Evolence® does not require a skin pre-test, so you can get results in 1 visit.
Call 909-981-8929 to schedule your Evolence® treatment.
Botox™ Cosmetic is a spectacular product, a purified protein used to remarkably and temporarily reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. It's most commonly used to remove frown lines (those lines between the eyebrows), and can also greatly minimize forehead lines and crow's feet. Muscles surrounding your eyes tighten multiple times during the day. The tightening of these muscles eventually leaves creases or wrinkles on the skin. Injecting small doses of Botox™ Cosmetic directly into these muscles using a tiny needle allows the muscles to relax, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Patients usually experience very little to no discomfort during the Botox™ Cosmetic procedure. The procedure takes approximately 10 minutes and most patients can return to their daily activities immediately after treatment. Wrinkles will not return for a period of three to five months following the Botox™ Cosmetic treatment. If you continue Botox™ Cosmetic treatments regularly, its effectiveness may actually increase, potentially lengthening the time between treatments.
Botox™ Cosmetic can also be used to treat excess sweating, particularly in the armpits and on the hands and feet. Many patients have a genetic tendency to sweat excessively. The glands that secrete perspiration can be selectively and effectively prevented from functioning,thereby greatly decreasing sweat.

Restylane & Perlane (Hyaluronic Acid Fillers) are most commonly used to smooth moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles such as the lines that travel from the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane & Perlane can fill depressions or shadows under the eyes and can be used to reshape or plump the lips thereby minimizing "smoker's lines" that radiate from the lips.
Restylane & Perlane can even shape facial contours, such as highlighting your cheekbones. These fillers are clear gels composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is found throughout your body and can provide lasting improvement and a smooth, natural appearance that can last 6 months to over a year.

Latisse® is the first and only prescription treatment approved by the FDA for inadequate or not enough eyelashes, growing them longer, fuller and darker. With the Latisse® prescription treatment watch your own lashes grow longer, thicker and darker in as little as 6 weeks. Ask about results we've seen in our office and if Latisse® is right for you. Some of our patient’s own lashes have grown so long, they need to be trimmed!
Call 909-981-8929 to schedule your Latisse® treatment.
Radiesse™ is another type of "filler" that is used most popularly to fill in the deep lines that can form extending from the sides of the nose to the sides of the mouth - the so called "smile lines". It is also used to reduce lines on the upper lip, to diminish blemishes like acne scars, and to restore the natural contours of the cheeks. Radiesse™ is unique among treatments to enhance the face. It is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres in an aqueous gel, which is a completely synthetic compound that is compatible with the body.
Because no animal or human tissues are involved, allergy testing is not required. Calcium is a natural substance already in the body. In fact, the basic element in Radiesse™ has been safely used by the medical profession for more than 25 years. Radiesse™ is FDA-approved for soft tissue marking in any anatomical location, vocal cord injection and oral/maxillofacial augmentation. FDA approval for facial implant is pending. Internationally, Radiesse™ has received approval for facial implant and treatment of stress urinary incontinence.
When injected, the crème-like texture of Radiesse™ feels soft and natural. Most importantly, Radiesse™ has been shown to persist for a year or more. It is gradually replaced by the body's own tissue and slowly dissolves away over several years. This simple procedure is done in the office, taking approximately 20 to 30 minutes. It can cause minor swelling but you are likely able to return to work the next day.

A new way to erase lines is here! What makes Juvederm™ Ultra & Ultra Plus different? The makers of Juvederm™ Ultra & Ultra Plus assert that this hyaluronic acid gel is more highly cross-linked which may promote its duration for up to 6 months or longer.
Also, Juvederm™ Ultra & Ultra Plus is of a superior smooth consistency, allowing a natural look to wrinkle correction. Juvederm™ Ultra & Ultra Plus smooths out folds that look like parentheses along the side or your nose and mouth, plumps up and enhances lips, corrects vertical lip lines, and lessens hollowing under the eyes.

As we age, not only do we see the effects of gravity, causing droopiness in our skin, but we also lose fat, or fullness, particularly in our face and hands. This may lead to sunken cheeks, hollowed-out eyes, and increased visibility of veins in the hands. Sculptra™ Aesthetic is called a "volumizer", because it can successfully return volume to areas that are now lacking.
Sculptra™ Aesthetic is presently approved by the FDA to correct signs of facial fat loss for those people with human immunodeficiency virus. When Sculptra™ Aesthetic is injected into the skin, it fills in or adds volume to the skin and creates a more natural facial appearance for those who have lost fat beneath the skin. Sculptra™ Aesthetic is an alternative to fat injections, when a surgeon removes fat from one area of the body and injects it into another.
Sculptra™ Aesthetic is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic material that has been widely used for many years in suture material for surgical procedures. It's not made from human or animal sources and does not require a skin test. Poly-L-lactic acid is biocompatible (does not harm the body) and biodegradable (able to be broken down and eliminated by the body). Patients with severe facial fat loss may require 3-6 sessions spaced 5 weeks apart.
The effects of Sculptra™ Aesthetic may last 2-4 years. However, the results are not immediate but gradual and depend on your own collagen to gradually thicken and add fullness to the area treated. The Sculptra™ Aesthetic procedure is performed as a simple office procedure taking approximately 30 minutes. You are swollen in the area treated for 1-3 days, but can cover any minor bruising with make-up and are certainly still able to return to work.
Call 909-981-8929 to schedule your Sculptra™ Aesthetic treatment.
Sclerotherapy/Leg Vein Removal remains the "gold standard" for treatment of spider veins, most commonly on the legs. Sclerotherapy/Leg Vein Removal involves the near painless injections of a detergent or irritant, that causes small spider veins to collapse and no longer fill with blood. After the procedure, you wear compression pantyhose for a week, which will aid in keeping the small blood vessels compressed so they don't fill again with blood.
These blood vessels are not important in supplying blood to your lower extremities, they are only present to annoy us! We can provide you with compression pantyhose during your office visit, available at the same cost to us. Learn more about Sclerotherapy Pre and Post Treatment here.
