Skin Treatments and Fillers

As we age, our faces begin to show the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and years of facial muscle movement, such as smiling, chewing, and squinting. The underlying tissues that keep our skin looking youthful and plumped up begin to break down, often leaving laugh lines, smile lines and crow's feet. Skin treatments and fillers are short-term or longer-term procedures that change the contours of the face and body through non-surgical or minimally invasive procedures.
  • Non-Ablative Rejuvenation. Dr. Copeland developed a combination treatment to help smooth and tighten the skin. This non-surgical process involves a stacking method that uses microdermabrasion, NdYag laser, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), and Light-Emitting Diode (LED). These techniques work together to effectively smooth and tighten skin. This is a quick procedure that does not produce flaking or require downtime. You can even have it done during your lunch hour. This combination technique works best if repeated four to six times.

  • Injectable Fillers/Fat Injections. Injected fillers can be used to improve the appearance of the skin's texture and contour. Typically made from hyaluronic acid or fat, injectable fillers can help fill out deep facial wrinkles, creases, and furrows, providing a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance. Lips that thin with aging can be made plumper, and fine lines around the lips can be reduced with the new assortment of fillers. Topical creams (such as Dr. Copeland's Lip Enhancer) can give an immediate plumping effect. Her Rewind Age-Defying Cream helps reduce fine lines around the lips. Dr. Copeland also uses Radiesse® and Sculptura® to plump, fill, and contour the face. With so many choices, it's important to have the expertise of someone like Dr. Copeland to help you decide what is best for you.

  • Botox® Injections. Botox blocks nerve impulses and temporarily paralyzes muscles that cause wrinkles, providing a more youthful appearance. Dr. Copeland can use Botox on its own or in conjunction with surgeries such as forehead lifts, face-lifts, and eyelid surgery. Botox may even be effective for migraine headaches and excessive perspiration. Botox is temporary—perfect for people who are not ready for more permanent forms of cosmetic enhancements.

  • Microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion helps treat skin damaged from sun and aging. This procedure removes dead skin cells almost imperceptibly without redness or flaking. Microdermabrasion is effective at minimizing fine lines, large pores, acne scars, and pigment irregularities. Microdermabrasion is also ideal for use on the neck, where the skin is thinner.

  • Lesion Removal. Pigmented lesions, such as birthmarks, freckles, and age spots, can be troublesome. These can be removed using the state-of-the-art VersaPulse® laser. Removal of warts, moles, skin tags, and other skin lesions can be performed under local anesthetic.

  • Scar Revision. Whether a scar results from an accident or a previous surgery, for many people it is not a badge of courage but an unsightly or even deforming mark. Although scars generally cannot be removed completely, scar revision can reduce the severity of its appearance. Combination therapies of microdermabrasion and light lasers can reduce the appearance of scars. Topical creams (such as Dr. Copeland's Pigment Formula) effectively reduce discolorations of scars. Talk to Dr. Copeland about the best option for you.

  • Eyeliner, Lip, and Eyebrow Tattooing. Intradermal micropigmentation, or cosmetic tattooing, is like applying permanent makeup. The process takes about 20 minutes and is performed under a topical anesthetic. Cosmetic tattoos can camouflage scars or add definition where needed. Tattoos may be dark and shiny at first; they fade to their true, permanent shade in about three weeks.
To deliver a superior result, many of the techniques described here can be used in combination with others. During your consultation, Dr. Copeland will discuss the various approaches and help you decide what's best for you.
