Lip augmentation increases the size of the lip for patients whose lips have lost volume with age, or who are unhappy with the natural appearance of their lips. Through injectable fillers, autologous grafts or synthetic implants, patients can achieve larger, fuller lips with minimal downtime and little to no side effects. With realistic expectations and good overall health, most patients are satisfied with the results of this procedure.
This procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and requires only a local anesthetic. If incisions are needed, they are often made in the mouth to conceal any scarring. Injectable fillers produce fuller lips that last for several months, while implants can provide permanent enhancement.
Patients will likely experience mild swelling and discomfort after lip augmentation, but these symptoms usually go away on their own within a few days, at which point patients can enjoy fuller lips and an overall enhanced appearance.

Earlobes can begin to sag over time as the skin loses elasticity, resulting in long, thin and sometimes wrinkled lobes. To remedy this, earlobe rejuvenation is a cosmetic procedure that can remove some excess skin and tissue and reshape the earlobe into a smaller, more rounded look and eliminate this tell-tale sign of aging.

Sclerotherapy is a procedure used to treat spider veins by injecting a solution into the veins which causes them to gradually disappear. By injecting a salt solution, known as a sclerosing solution, the lining of the veins become irritated and eventually turns into scar tissue that then fades away. This method is the preferred treatment for spider veins and has been used since the 1930s.
This procedure is usually performed in your doctor's office and takes no more than an hour. Most patients need 2 to 4 treatments in order to achieve desired results. There is no downtime other than avoiding strenuous activities for the first 2 to 3 days.
While sclerotherapy is proven as an effective treatment for spider veins, it is not recommended for everybody. Pregnant women and those whose saphenous veins are affected are not typically eligible for this procedure. Sclerotherapy is not effective for large varicose veins and is only recommended for smaller, superficial veins. Talk to your doctor to find out if sclerotherapy is right for you.

Microdermabrasion improves mild to moderate sun damage, scarring, wrinkles and other superficial skin problems. A gentle stream of tiny particles exfoliates the outer layer of skin and provides a fresh, glowing, younger appearance. Only a small amount of skin is removed, so sensitive areas such as the face, chest, neck, arms and hands can be treated. Results are comparable to a light chemical peel and should be immediately visible. Microdermabrasion is often performed in conjunction with other skin renewal procedures, such as laser treatment and chemical peels. Multiple treatments are recommended for full effect.
