We offer a series of skin treatments that remove wrinkles, rejuvenate for a youthful appearance, clean, cleanse, and relax. The Egozi Plastic Surgery Center offers injection and facial treatments. We are certified to administer Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Sculptra. We also have an aesthetician on staff that performs relaxing facial treatments that clean the skin and treats acne scarring, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation.
Botox is one of the most popular short-term wrinkle solutions. It also improves eye coordination, severe armpit perspiration, and treats migraines. It is a purified protein that alleviates wrinkles by disrupting the release of acetylcholine, which causes wrinkling be forcing muscles to contract. Botox reduces about 80% of wrinkles and lasts for between three to four months. The forehead, brow, and crow’s feet are the most commonly injected areas.
Juvederm is an injected gel that acts as a filler to smooth out skin and removes wrinkles, especially deep wrinkles. The result is a youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Juvederm is injected into the middle skin layer located below the skin’s subsurface. The gel fills this layer, causing the skin to tighten, thus eliminating wrinkles. It has been rigorously tested and is safe for use by both men and women. The effects of Juvederm are seen for up to 9 months after treatment.
Restylane, like Juvederm, is injected into the mid skin layer below the skin’s subsurface. It is specially designed to be compatible with the body’s chemistry so to avoid hostile reactions. Restylane’s effects can be observed for up to six months, although some patients have noticed results for longer.
Radiesse is similar to Juvederm and Restylane regarding results but goes about achieving them differently. Instead of acting as a filler, Radiesse creates a new base in the skins subsurface that acts as support. Radiesse adds volume and encourages the body to produce collagen, which results in a natural and youthful appearance. The effects of Radiesse are observed for between one to two years, making it a long-term option compared to Juvederm, Botox, and Restylane.
Sculptra is similar to Radiesse in its longevity and encouragement of collagen production. It is composed of a biodegradable and biocompatible substance called poly-l lactic acid, or PLLA. It is especially useful for treating hollow or sunken cheeks as it increases volume and ensures a natural and youthful appearance. It is best utilized when addressing greater surface areas like a jawline, temples, or cheeks versus the lips, for example. It is an excellent alternative to a facelift, and the results are noticeable for up to two years.

The therapeutic facial treats sun damaged, oily, and blemished skin. It involves deep exfoliation and cleansing. It nourishes the skin and cleans the pores.
The microderm combo facial treatment cleanses, polishes, and revitalizes the skin. It specifically treats signs of fatigue and includes moisturizers, masks, and mini-microdermabrasion. Treatment lasts approximately 65 minutes.
Medical-grade microdermabrasion is a deep exfoliate facial treatment that polishes and cleans the skin. It is ideal for patients with acne scarring, fine lines, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation. It is a non-invasive facial procedure that requires six treatment sessions, each lasting approximately 50 minutes, to be effective.
