Although cosmetic surgical procedures have been utilized for years to improve patient’s appearance, they have definite limitations in some areas. Many patients are concerned about both deep and superficial skin wrinkles. Unfortunately, procedures such as facelifts, eyelid lifts and forehead lifts do not treat the skin wrinkles. This is where other treatments such as fillers and Botox® can offer significant improvement. For many years, doctors injected collagen and other fillers to add volume to specific areas like the lips and to deeper wrinkles to fill them from behind. Most of the previously used fillers like collagen and silicone had many well known and frequent complications.
DeLand is very lucky to have this level of care. This is a great caring group lead by good M.D.’s.
