LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Prices are per treatment. Most patients require 5-8 treatments on body areas, or 9 treatments of the face, to eliminate 95%-98% of the hair in the treatment area. Results vary.

BOTOX or JUEVEAU
with treatments usually requiring 20-40 units ($240-480) depending on number and size of areas to be treated.
NOTE: Patients planning to have Botox treatments, and want to lessen their chances of bruising, should avoid the following for two weeks prior to treatment. These substances increase clotting time.

3. naproxen (Aleeve)
4. Vitamin E (no more than 100 iu)
5. Flax seed oil
6. Evening Primrose Oil
8. Fish Oil

Things to do before your filler treatment:
1. Eat fresh pineapple as it contains bromelain which aids in clotting.
2. Buy a tube of Arnica gel to apply to bruises you do get from your treatment, as it lessens the duration of bruises.
PHOTO FACIAL (INTENSE PULSE LIGHT OR I.P.L.)
For reduction of brown spots and redness of the face, neck and chest. With four treatments per year, you can expect improvement in the texture of the skin, increased skin tightening from stimulation of collagen, and possibly smaller pores. Many patients find just one or two treatments per year to be beneficial in the appearance of their skin.
Face & Chest $550/treatment
Face & Neck $450
Neck & Chest $350
Face, Neck & Chest $600
Arms and/or legs: $400/hour
IPL treatments are most appropriate for fair skinned patients. There is a heightened risk of rebound hyperpigmentation with more olive toned skin types. A test patch may be indicated if there is any question of whether an IPL treatment would be appropriate. Downtime is minimal. Expect to feel like you have had some sun exposure, which may last a few minutes, or maybe until the next day. Dark spots will be darker by the next day, but will slough off within a week on the face, within a month on the chest, and within 2-3 months on the arms and legs. Results can take a month or longer to be fully apparent, especially with arms and legs treatments.
TREATMENT OF SPIDER VEINS ON THE LEGS
$100 PLUS $1.00/PULSE
The veins treated will vanish immediately if the pulse is effective. Moments later, the skin will appear red and raised. By the next day, only slight redness is seen. Over the next days, the area will turn brownish. This will fade in 1-5 months, depending on your age, health, genetics and circulation. One or more followup treatments may be needed. Cindy's colleague, Arlene Padilla, RN, BSN, is proficient in Sclerotherapy. Sometimes a combination of laser treatment and sclerotherapy may be the most effective in clearing the veins. Sclerotherapy requires wearing compression stockings for a week following treatment. Laser vein treatment does not require the use of compression stockings.
This treatment is done with a Candela GentleYag 1064nm laser.
Arlene's office is also in Suite 312. Her supervising physician is also Dr. Jonathan Levin, who is a general surgeon and a vascular surgeon.
