Cosmetic Treatments

Our wide range of cosmetic treatments can combat many early signs of facial aging, repair environmental damage, and help you maintain healthy, youthful skin. Many of our patients choose these non-surgical treatments as a less invasive alternative to plastic surgery. With an extensive knowledge of facial anatomy and a highly trained artistic eye, Dr. Richard Sherman can achieve effective, natural-looking results to rejuvenate your appearance.

Cosmetic Injectables

BOTOX® Cosmetic

This frequently requested injectable utilizes a neurotoxin-based formula to temporarily relax overactive facial muscles and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used to effectively treat horizontal lines across the forehead, vertical lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet.

Dysport®

Dysport® is the latest widely-used neurotoxin-based injectable that can minimize the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles, and creases. By smoothing the skin, this injectable can provide significant facial rejuvenation for a more youthful complexion.

Dermal Fillers

JUVÉDERM®

JUVÉDERM® is hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler designed to treat fine lines and wrinkles as well as restore lost facial volume. The products in the JUVÉDERM® family can give you natural-looking, long-lasting results.

Restylane®

This family of dermal fillers can reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, including nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Additionally, these hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers can add volume to sunken or sagging areas of the face, such as the cheeks or lips.

Sculptra® Aesthetic

This unique dermal filler uses a poly-L-lactic-acid-based formula that can stimulate the body’s natural collagen supply and reverse age-related volume loss. With Sculptra® Aesthetic, you can smooth wrinkles, creases, and facial folds with results that last up to two years or more.

Lip Augmentation

Lip augmentation is a safe, effective way to enhance the shape and definition of your lips without the need for surgery. Using specially formulated injectables, Dr. Sherman can treat lips that are thin or have lost volume over time to achieving soft, supple results that look and feel natural.

Spider Vein Treatment

Spider veins, which commonly develop in the legs as we age, are a cosmetic concern characterized by prominent small blood vessels that appear close to the surface of the skin. Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that can reduce or eliminate the appearance of these veins. By injecting a concentrated saline solution into the affected veins with a very small needle, the spider veins can eventually collapse and fade away. Depending upon the severity of your condition, multiple sclerotherapy treatment sessions may be required. Typically, sclerotherapy procedures are scheduled 4-6 weeks apart and patients are able to return to their daily activities immediately after each treatment. For areas that are unresponsive to sclerotherapy, our GentleMax® Pro laser can be used to target smaller veins.

Double Chin Treatment

Even our patients at The Skin Institute of New Orleans who diet and exercise regularly struggle with excess fat under the chin (submental fat). Commonly called a “double chin,” this area of the body can be particularly difficult to target with traditional weight loss methods. A new injectable called KYBELLA® can now be used to reduce submental fat for a more defined chin, neck, and jawline. Each KYBELLA® treatment session takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. In many cases, several KYBELLA® treatments are needed to maximize results. Learn if KYBELLA® can help you achieve your cosmetic goals by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Sherman.

Laser Treatments

Innovations in laser technology have greatly advanced the field of dermatology and improved a number of commonly performed treatments. The elōs® laser, the Cutera® VariLite laser, and the GentleMax® Pro laser allow Dr. Sherman to offer state-of-the-art services including: skin tightening, collagen stimulation, textural and tonal improvement, laser hair removal, vein removal, broken capillary treatment, and age spot treatment.

Cosmetic Treatments for Men

At The Skin Institute of New Orleans, we understand that both women and men want to maintain healthy, youthful skin for a well-rested and energized appearance. Dr. Sherman has a thorough understanding of the differences between the facial skin and aesthetic preferences of men and women. By custom-tailoring cosmetic treatments to meet the unique needs of his male patients, Dr. Sherman can delivers results that look natural and masculine.
