“You can spend money on that special something you wear once in a while …
or you can invest in your face, which you wear every day!”
Cyndi Yag-Howard, MD, FAAD
Fillers are used to add volume to the cheeks and lips and to fill in those fine lines, wrinkles and folds around the eyes or mouth. They are a perfect way to create a more vibrant, youthful you with no surgery involved. Depending on your metabolism as well as the type and amount of filler selected, you can expect results to last from 4 to 24 months.
Scupltra ® – Made from poly-l-lactic acid, Sculptra compensates for naturally-occurring lost facial volume by stimulating collagen production. It gently lifts and volumizes while eliminating the skin’s crepe-paper appearance. Results appear over several weeks and typically last approximately 2 years.
Radiesse ® – Radiesse beautifully lifts the cheekbones, volumizes the chin and jaw area, and fills in the deep laugh lines for a natural-appearing, youthful look that lasts an average of 6-12 months.
Juvederm Voluma – Naturally lifts cheeks and minimizes sagging for a result lasting up to 2 years.
Restylane®, Perlane®, Belotero®, Juvederm® – These elegant and versatile fillers are made of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally-occurring gel that adds volume to the cheeks and lips, fills in the lines and folds around the mouth, and minimizes the deep, dark circles under the eyes. Each HA has its unique benefits and the ideal HA is selected based on the desired aesthetic result.
Safe and effective, neurotoxins work by temporarily relaxing specific muscles to diminish the lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the brows and around the eyes.
Dysport® – is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults less than 65 years of age.
Botox® – Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.
Xeomin® – (incobotulinumtoxinA) for injection, for intramuscular use, is a prescription medication that is injected into facial muscles for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines (frown lines) in adult patients. XEOMIN® should be administered no more frequently than every three months.
Laser treatment is an excellent option for those wanting to improve skin tone and texture, reduce unwanted fine lines and wrinkles or hair, build collagen, minimize scarring, etc.

Yag-Howard Dermatology Center offers aesthetic services for women and men! Your skin is your body’s largest and fasting growing organ so it is important to give your skin the TLC it needs and deserves. Our aesthetician can provide answers to your questions you have about your skin type, including, but not limited to the following:
Is your skin dry, cracked and itchy?
Is your skin tone uneven?
Is your skin splotchy or red?
What’s a good daily regimen for my face?
How do I control my acne?
Why should I consider facials or peels?
Is waxing safe?
How often do I need to tint my eyebrows or eyelashes?
Our aesthetician, Sara, has designed aesthetic services with you in mind. She has spent countless hours refining her technique and researching the importance of good skin health. You may think of a facial or peel as a luxury item, which they are this and more. Did you know that facials help replenish, restore and rejuvenate your skin while fighting the daily elements that attack our skin? Peels, on the other hand, help you stimulate collagen remodeling to help improve hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, texture and skin impurities. Waxing and tinting services are available for your convenience and are a great way to give yourself a treat. There’s nothing better than not have to shave today or pull out that eyebrow pencil to highlight those eyes. As a reminder, good skin health begins with a daily cleanser, moisturizer and protector. We offer top notch physician grade products that help you maximize the benefits for your skin. We carry Skinceuticals and Neova product lines. Each offer unique products that target specific areas – tightening, texture, uneven skin tones, acne, etc. Sara would be happy to customize your skin care regime based upon your individual needs and desired results. We are confident you will be very pleased with any of these well respected skin care leaders. Kinesys is Dr. Yag-Howard’s personal favorite of the sun protectors. It is fragrance free and a SPF30. Sunscreen is important and is your skin’s friend. Be sure to choose a sunscreen that you will use daily and often. Call 239-529-DERM to talk to Sara or to schedule your appointment!
