Dr. James D. Namnoum | Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon
BOTOX® is a minimally invasive treatment that relaxes facial muscles that cause moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, and wrinkles around the eyes.
FDA-approved for use in men and women between the ages of 18 and 65, this 10 minute procedure consists of a series of small injections. BOTOX® produces immediate results and shows improvement in wrinkles and furrows that can last up to 4 months.
Facial Fillers (Juvéderm®, Restylane®, & Perlane®)
Dr. Namnoum offers Juvéderm®, Restylane® & Perlane® as minimally invasive cosmetic treatments to address the signs of aging. These FDA-approved fillers consist of natural substances that re-hydrate the skin and restore it to its natural volume. The products work by filling in the depressions that develop as aging skin loses elasticity and the face’s fullness begins to lessen.
Chemical peels, often recommended after a surgical facial procedure, are effective in removing the outer layer of the skin to reveal healthy skin cells underneath. Also recommended for non-surgical patients, chemical peels even skin tone and texture – providing skin with a fresh, natural glow.
Moderate to severe skin damage caused by aging or years of sun exposure can be treated with laser skin resurfacing. Laser skin resurfacing treatments reduce the appearance of skin conditions such as wrinkles, fine lines, acne, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, keratosis, and scarring.
During the procedure, Dr. Namnoum directs a laser beam to apply light energy which promotes collagen growth to repair damaged tissue. Additional treatments may be recommended for optimal results or to improve skin appearance after a cosmetic facial or body procedure such as blepharoplasty or liposuction.
Juvéderm® and Restylane® are recommended for the treatment of everyday wrinkles and fine lines, while Perlane® (which is made of larger particles) is recommended for deeper wrinkles and lost volume. Facial filler injections take only 15 minutes, produce immediate results that last up to six months, and require minimal downtime.
Sciton® BroadBand Light™ and Erbium Laser
Dr. Namnoum offers the latest laser skin resurfacing system, Sciton®. Sciton’s® laser technology is a safe and effective non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment that reduces the signs of aging and sun damage. Sciton® scans specific target areas of skin by using light energy and heat to remove the upper layer of skin and stimulate healthy skin cell production.
With two different lasers, the Broadband Light™ (BBL) and Erbium lasers, Sciton® can treat a wide range of skin conditions for all ages and skin types. Similar to chemical peels, Sciton® addresses fine lines and wrinkles, acne blemishes, sun spots, crow’s feet and uneven skin texture to improve skin elasticity.
Unlike other lasers on the market, the Sciton® laser can be customized so the strength of treatment levels and number of treatment sessions are specifically customized to each patient. Patients can choose from a series of lighter peels with minimal downtimes or one strong peel with a longer period of downtime.
The Sciton® Broadband Light™ specifically treats minor skin conditions including acne, uneven skin texture, vascular veins, and even unwanted hair while the Erbium laser is used to treat more complex skin conditions as Erbium allows deeper laser peels.
