Removal of liver and age spots. This is usually done with application of a liquid (liquid nitrogen) to allow a more even and natural pigmentation.

Trichloracetic acid peels are deeper peels which also help reduce mild scarring and wrinkles.
Botox Cosmetic™ is a naturally occurring protein which is injected into the skin to weaken muscles and soften the overlying wrinkles.
Botox™ for hyperhidrosis provides prolonged control of excessive sweating of the armpits, palms and feet.
Soft tissue fillers such as hyaluronic acid are substances injected into the skin to fill in lines, improve scars and plump up lips.
