Botox / Dysport  

Neurotoxins are most commonly used in the upper third of the face, but it may be used sparingly around the mouth and on the neck. Treatments are individualized for each patient’s desired results. Neurotoxins are administered by several small injections with minimal discomfort. Effects may be seen within 5-7 days for Botox and 3-4 days for Dysport. Full effects are seen at two weeks after injections. Touch ups will be performed on an as-needed basis between week 2 and 3 after your initial treatment to ensure that you are pleased with your results. Learn more here...

Sclerotherapy is used for spider veins and medium “reticular” veins. Asclera is an injectable irritant or sclerosing agent. When injected into a vein, it damages its endothelium or inner lining, causing fibrosis and eventual clotting. The body replaces the clotted blood vessel with tissue over time, which reduces or eliminates its protruding appearance. Learn more here...


Hair Restoration

SkinMD utilizes Selphyl® Platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM), the next generation PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), as a non-surgical therapeutic option for patients suffering from hair loss conditions. PRFM contains concentrated growth factors which stimulate dormant follicles and thicken current hair strands. Using a patient’s own blood, the PRFM is injected under the surface of the scalp, followed by microneedling with the Collagen P.I.N. Microneedling stimulates the production of intradermal blood vessels by creating micro-channels in the tissues, thus increasing circulation to the follicles. This combination treatment is recommended every 4-6 weeks for a total of three treatments and can be repeated yearly if needed. Call for a FREE CONSULTATION: 615.279.5656.


ESKATA for Raised Seborrheic Keratoses (SK)


ESKATA is the first and only FDA-approved topical treatment for raised SKs. With its proprietary solution and soft-tip, pen-like applicator, dermatologists can target and treat raised SKs with ESKATA. ESKATA is likely to cause a stinging sensation at the time of application. The most common side effects include itching, stinging, crusting, swelling, redness, and scaling. Most SKs will fall off by 3 weeks after treatment. ESKATA is not covered by insurance. It is a self-pay cosmetic treatment. Learn more here...
