3-Month Skin Rejuvenation Program

Reduce the signs of aging and skin damage without the need for invasive surgery or injectable cosmetic treatment.

Fat injections, fat transfers and liposuction contouring

Body fat extracted from one part of the body is transferred to other parts for contouring and other effects. This technique is used to recontour the face, fill in sunken scar areas, diminish frown/smile lines and crow’s feet and help define areas like the cheeks. Three to four treatments in a six-month period is the usual course of treatment. Ongoing maintenance may be required.

Furrows, lines and wrinkle treatments

Both natural and synthetic fillers have been developed and tested by dermatologic surgeons to smooth out skin and enhance appearance. Collagen is one of these injectable substances that’s used to smooth out lines, fill in facial furrows and depressions and define other areas like the lips and chin. Vitamin A-derived topical treatments can also be used to help reduce fine wrinkles and skin splotches.


Lip enhancement and lip augmentation

To enhance the appearance of your lips and improve shape and volume, various dermal fillers can be used. Hyaluronic acid is a popular choice because of its effectiveness and because it is a natural bodily substance. This is one of various dermal fillers that can be injected into your lips to make them full and plump.

Our Products

The products used at OSU Wexner Medical Center are safe and of the highest quality, whether pharmaceutical, nonpharmaceutical or natural/organic.
