As a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Wigod is qualified to provide the gold standard in surgical rejuvenation techniques. Not everyone, however, needs, wants, or can afford these most aggressive therapies. Accordingly, Dr. Wigod is pleased to offer Non-Surgical Rejuvenation options. Injections are commonly offered elsewhere at about the same price, but your injector may have not understand anatomy like a surgeon. With 8 years of post medical school surgery residency and fellowship training, Dr. Wigod has the background to critically evaluate non-surgical treatments versus surgery. With all these rejuvenation tools available, Dr. Wigod can offer each patient an individualized approach for his or her problem.
BOTOX® – BOTOX®, or Botulinum Toxin A, is injected into facial muscles to temporarily paralyze their function. The paralyzed muscles ease existing facial lines and help minimize the formation of new ones. The most frequently targeted areas are the glabella (vertical furrows on the forehead between the eyes) and crows feet (fine lines around the corners of the eyes). Botox has an excellent safety profile and effects may last up to 4 months. Botox treatments start around $300 and depend on the area treated.
Fillers – facial volume loss contributes to an aged appearance. Volume replacement with a filler product may make a significant difference. Volume is most commonly placed into the lips and nasolabial fold (deep furrows above and between the nose and mouth). Juvéderm™ effective and has fewer problems than other products, so it is Dr. Wigod’s preferred injectable. Fillers usually last up to six months and are placed under local anesthetic. Filler treatments start around $500 and depend on the product and area treated. Ask about our potentially permanent surgical alternative, fat grafting.
PCA- Physicians Care Alliance™ Skin Care- After extensive research, we have selected the PCA skin care system. PCA features a wide variety of products to allow customized treatment of most any skin type at a reasonable price. Dr. Wigod particularly likes the Vitamin C/E products for under eye treatment.
