Skin Rejuvenation

Where do you start if your desire is to reverse damage and prevent the signs of aging?

Where do you start if your desire is to reverse damage and prevent the signs of aging?

Caring for your skin can keep you looking good at any age. It can influence how quickly you experience the telltale signs of aging and postpone the need for surgery. Apart from “turning back the clock,” good skincare can also address other conditions created by heredity, sun damage, pollutants and scars. The skin is a remarkable organ capable of renewing itself, but over time that renewal process can become compromised. With the heightened emphasis on miracle potions and lotions, it is easy to be overwhelmed. Dr. Watanabe can guide you through the myriad of products and procedures available.

Dr. Watanabe’s office has created protocols for the most commonly experienced skincare issues. Whether you are struggling with acne, fine lines and wrinkles, scars, age spots, rosacea or poor skin tone and texture, you are in good hands. We are well versed in scientifically based products, peels and procedures. Contrary to “over the counter” creams, medical grade products are comprised of basic ingredients taken to prescription strength. These products give you a result that is more than skin deep. Our office prides itself on providing the latest, tested therapies in a comfortable atmosphere. You can be sure the recommendations you receive here are proven and medically supported.

All injectable and filler procedures are done by Dr. Watanabe.

Skincare Services

Non surgical care of the skin can include injectables, fillers, lasers and topical products. Often a combination of these is used to accomplish your skincare goals. It is important to make a distinction between treatments and their results. Botox® reduces lines and wrinkles by blocking the action in the muscles so that there is less movement of the skin. Restylane® is a filler material which provides volume and fullness to the skin. Broken capillaries, rosacea and sun damage can be corrected through laser therapy. They leave the skin intact and treat the underlying tissues.

Botox®

A simple, FDA approved, non-surgical treatment, Botox® temporarily smoothes moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. Another area that is commonly treated is the crow’s feet region, but this is currently considered an off label usage of the drug. The procedure typically takes 10 minutes and does not require any recovery time. Results vary depending on individual presentation, but typically last up to 4 months. Dr. Watanabe administers all Botox® treatments.

Fillers

Juvederm®

Quick and easy, Juvederm® is a dermal filler that restores volume and fullness. This product treats a variety of aesthetic desires including lip enhancement, scars, naso-labial folds, and peri-oral lines. Fillers are used alone or in conjunction with facial rejuvenation surgery. Similar to Botox®, Juvederm® is injected into specific facial areas by our physician. The procedure takes between 30 and 45 minutes depending upon the area treated. Results are immediate and long lasting. Patients usually reschedule approximately every 6-12 months to maintain their new look.

Newer filler materials are always being developed. As we determine their safety and efficacy, they will become part of our skin service offering.

Products and the associated conditions they treat

Products sold in our office are concentrated and have a higher percentage of key ingredients than those sold in department stores. These produce are usually prescription strength to better obtain consistent, long lasting results.

Glytone®

The Glytone® Clarifying System is a complete skin care regimen comprised of state of the art dermatological products and proprietary skin care formulations. Its ingredients actively correct and stimulate the cells to improve overall skin health. Dr. Watanabe can create a customized regimen for your specific skin type, degree of renewal required and the desired timeframe for results. Special cleansers, toners, moisturizers, eye creams and regulating cream all work in harmony in one renewal system.

LATISSE® by Allergan

LATISSE® is the first and only FDA-approved ophthalmic solution that dramatically enhances eyelash prominence, making them longer, fuller and darker. This prescription treatment is effective for those who cannot properly grow eyelashes due to a condition known as Hypotrichosis. Research suggests that the growth of eyelashes occurs by increasing the amount of hairs in, and the duration of, the anagen (or growth) phase. Bimatoprost, the active ingredient in LATISSE®, prolongs this growth phase. Results with this easy-to-use solution can be seen in as few as 8 weeks with full results after 12 to 16 weeks.
