INJECTABLESBotox Cosmetic® By far the easiest way to take 10 years off your look is by suppressing the lines on your face with Botox! Botox Cosmetic treatment consists of simple tiny injections that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, crow’s feet, horizontal forehead lines, down-turned mouth, bunny lines on the nose, pursed-lip lines around the mouth, help to lift the lateral brow, and relax the platysmal banding in the neck. With Botox, there’s a noticeable improvement in the lines within 2-10 days, which can last up to 4 months.

DERMAL FILLERSJuvéderm Ultra Plus XC® Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC is an injectable gel filler made of hyaluronic acid that corrects fine and deep lines on the face. Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC is optimally formulated for filling superficial wrinkles and folds, but is also capable of volumizing and correcting deeper wrinkles and folds, and as well, enhancing the lips. Juvéderm is a soft, strong, and long lasting gel that produces a smooth natural look that can last 6-9 months. Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC contains a numbing agent called lidocaine for not only optimum longevity, but for optimum comfort.
Oceana Dermatology Radiesse® Radiesse is a non-surgical facial contouring filler and volumizer that delivers immediate, long lasting results. Developed with safety and longevity in mind, Radiesse is made of unique calcium based microspheres, which work with your body to stimulate new collagen. It is a new generation injectable filler that offers superior versatility for both cosmetic and reconstructive use. Radiesse is primarily used to reduce the deeper smile lines around and at the corners of your mouth, but can be used to enhance the chin, cheekbones, and restore volume in the cheeks due to loss of fat. Results can last up to 11 months, although a “touch-up” may be needed at 2-3 months.

DERMAL VOLUMIZERSculptra Aesthetic® Sculptra is considered a volumizer as opposed to a filler, and consists of a synthetic injectable material known as “poly-L-lactic acid” which the body converts to collagen. Sculptra restores youthful contour and volume to the aging face. It is a long lasting treatment, for up to three plus years, and may be used for restoration and/or correction of the signs of facial fat loss. Facial fat loss can result in sunken cheeks, indentations, and hollows below the eyes. Sculptra is a safe and biocompatible material that is injected below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss. It provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness, improving the appearance of folds and sunken areas. Multiple vials are typically required at 4-6 week intervals until desired results are achieved.
THE POWER OF PLASMAPortrait® Plasma Resurfacing Portrait Plasma Resurfacing is unlike any other anti-aging treatment available today. The innovative FDA-cleared Portrait Plasma, employs nitrogen based plasma energy that transfers heat to the skin using a non-contact technique. This revolutionary energy source makes for true skin regeneration. The result is tighter and thicker skin, which greatly diminishes the appearance of both fine lines and deep wrinkles while enhancing the skin‘s tone and texture. It is the only treatment proven to continue regenerating new skin – at the fundamental levels - for over a year after treatment. The results can last 4-5 years post treatment depending upon one’s lifestyle. While some improvement is immediate, the “wow” effect occurs at around 90 days post treatment. The treatment can be done at high or low energy. Three low energy treatments are approximately 80% of one high energy treatment. There is merely one week of “downtime” if high energy treatment is performed. Daily visits with Kelly for post-treatment in-office after care for the week following your procedure ensure close monitoring and speedy healing.
While Portrait is a natural and gradual means of dramatically turning back the clock, it is also FDA approved for the treatment of pre-cancers of the skin.

LIGHT & LASER TREATMENTSLumenis® Quantum® IPL FotoFacial Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or FotoFacial Treatments improve the appearance of redness, rosacea, and/or flushing, broken capillaries, brown/age spots, sun damaged and photo aged skin. It also improves skin texture, mild acne scars, reduces large pores, improves dark circles around the eyes, and may reduce fine lines. IPL FotoFacials can be used to treat the full or partial face, as well as other areas of the body such as neck, chest, arms, hands and legs, for a more even skin tone and an overall radiant complexion. IPL Fotofacials provide gradual improvement typically over 5 treatments with very low risk and little or no “downtime.” Prices vary per area of body, and sequential treatments over 3-4 week intervals may be necessary for optimum results. Maintenance treatments are also recommended.
Oceana Dermatology Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) PDT is a specialized treatment performed with a topical photosensitizing agent called Levulan® (5-aminolevulinic acid or ALA) or the trade name Kerastick® which is activated with the correct wavelength of light. Levulan is used in conjunction with IPL FotoFacial treatments to enhance the effects of the light. These treatments remove sun damaged pre-cancerous areas called actinic keratoses.
This treatment also has the unique ability to minimize pores and reduce oil glands effectively treating stubborn acne vulgaris, acne rosacea, and improve the appearance of some acne scars. 1-4 treatments are required which entail a week of “downtime.” Cost is dependent on area and number of Kerasticks used. Medicare insurance may cover partial cost for treatment of pre-cancers.
Oceana Dermatology 9 LightSheer® Laser Hair Removal The Lumenis LightSheer is still considered the “gold standard” for laser hair removal. The state-of-the-art diode laser system works in conjunction with a sapphire ChillTip to provide continuous contact cooling of the skin, which provides optimal safety and comfort during the treatment. Treatment is safe for all skin types including tanned and dark skin, although it is preferable to work on nontanned skin. Targeting brown or black hair against skin that is relatively lighter toned affords less treatments. This treatment does not treat white, grey, blonde, or red hair. Treatments are individually priced by area. After 5 treatments, get the 6th treatment free, and half-price thereafter if further treatments needed.
Oceana Dermatology GentleWaves® LED Therapy Low intensity light-emitting diodes (LED) constitutes GentleWaves. GentleWaves® uses a carefully timed sequence of light emissions to activate the skin’s natural rejuvenation process. This novel technique to skin rejuvenation has absolutely no discomfort, side effects, or downtime. It is extremely fast, lasting only a few minutes. The treatment is collagen-rejuvenating, collagen-sustaining, and anti-inflammatory. GentleWaves can even relieve sunburn in a single treatment!
It can be helpful for rosacea. It can be used as a stand-alone treatment - but it is most effective as a package of 8-12 (the “Skin Fitness” package) or in conjunction with other treatments to speed the healing process and reduce redness and swelling post-procedurally. Treatments should be done twice a week for optimum results, but can be done as you wish.
