Cosmetic

Attaining and maintaining healthy, youthful skin is a priority. A daily regimen that integrates the use of medical-based anti-aging skin care products with the regular use of sunscreen can help diminish the unwanted effects of premature aging and sun damage. These products, or cosmeceuticals have higher concentrations of medical-grade ingredients for fighting age-related skin problems. They are also pharmaceutically formulated and researched to ensure balance and stability.

Getting started is easy. A consultation with Dr. DeSilva to evaluate and present cosmetic options is the first step. The patient’s desires and needs are addressed, and a custom plan is developed that offers the optimal strategy for delaying the signs of aging and for maximizing treatment results.

Injectables

BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA approved treatment for moderate to severe frown lines, as well as severe underarm sweating. Men and women of all ages and ethnicities can elect to receive Botox treatments as a quick and minimally invasive procedure. Botox causes the muscles to relax, without compromising your freedom of expression; so patients can smile and laugh without the lines.
Botox treatments used to control severe underarm sweating have helped patients live more productive lives and boost their self-confidence. By blocking the chemical signals that stimulate sweat glands, Botox restricts the amount of sweat that is produced. Patients notice a significant reduction in sweating within four weeks of the first treatment.

RADIESSE ® and RADIESSE ® (+)

RADIESSE is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. 1 Once injected, it provides immediate volume and correction but continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only your own natural collagen.RADIESSE ® and RADIESSE ® (+) are dermal fillers that are used for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth). RADIESSE ® is also used for correcting volume loss in the back of the hands. RADIESSE is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. RADIESSE is injected through a small needle and placed under the skin. Immediately, this filler works to add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits of RADIESSE continue by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting.

Juvederm® (Ultra XC and Ultra Plus XC)

Juvederm ® injectable gel is the first smooth-consistency hyaluronic acid (HA) gel. Over time, the loss of HA, a naturally occurring hydrating substance in the body, can result in facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm smoothes lines by replacing the lost hyaluronic acid and the results are FDA approved to last up to one year.

Juvederm Voluma® XC

Juvederm Voluma® XC is a gel used to instantly add volume to the cheek area due to aging or sagging skin. It helps restore a more youthful appearance by creating a contour and subtle lift. It is FDA approved to last up to 2 years with optimal treatment. It is a non-surgical procedure and provides results that are natural-looking.

Kybella®

Kybella is a safe and effective treatment for improving appearance and reducing moderate to severe fat under the chin (submental fat) also known as “double chin.” Depending on the assessment of the treatment area, more than one session may be needed to achieve the result recommended by your physician.

Restylane®
