Combination Therapy

Cosmetic procedures and lasers are constantly changing and evolving. In recent years, changes have occurred in Cosmetic Dermatology. Instead of looking at the face in sections, we now view the face in its entirety to create a more balanced, youthful, naturally beautiful look. Often it is through the combination of medical, cosmetic, and laser treatments that the best results are achieved to ultimately make your skin look as healthy and youthful as possible and to shed years in your skin’s appearance.

An aging face is more complex than lines and wrinkles; it involves a combination of changes in skin quality, texture, and appearance. Through aging, our facial structure degenerates, deflates and descends as we lose fat, muscle, and bone density. This results in loose skin and lost volume as the natural support structures that keep our skin smooth and firm are slowly depleted. In addition, sun damage incurred through years of unprotected ultraviolet exposure eventually presents as brown spots, redness and skin cancer.

Quite often, achieving your desired outcome involves a combination of treatments. To illustrate this, Dr. Malcolm and Dr. Wong often complement fractionated CO2 skin resurfacing laser with Botox to further smooth facial wrinkles. Soft Lift is a combination therapy that combines Botox and Juvederm dermal filler to restore facial balance and create a refreshed appearance.

There are a number of procedures that can be combined to enhance your results. Dr. Malcolm and Dr. Wong will design a customized treatment plan with the most effective combination of treatments to achieve your desired results.
