Dermatology Associates of Ithaca offers cosmetic dermatology services including chemical peels, Botox® injections, and Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC fillers to our patients in Ithaca and the surrounding areas. These procedures are designed to maximize cosmetic outcome with minimal downtime and risk, and are generally not covered by insurance.
Botox® Treatments are administered by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Josephine McAllister. Botox can smooth out wrinkles caused by overactive muscles in the face, including the “elevenses” and “Crow’s feet.” Treatments generally last 3-6 months.
Chemical Peels can improve skin texture, even skin tone, and smooth wrinkles. They need to be performed as a series of treatments for maximal effect (ideally at least three). Recovery time is short, with mild redness and superficial peeling over a few days following the treatment.
Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC Treatments are administered by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Josephine McAllister. Juvéderm can smooth out deep wrinkles caused by loss of volume and elasticity in the mid and lower face, including nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and lip wrinkles. Treatments generally last 6 months or longer.
