Acne can cause great distress that affects your self esteem and confidence. So avoid frustration by exploring our unique acne treatment options. Early proper treatment of acne prevents ugly scaring of the face.
The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, known as Botox®, is a purified protein injectable filler that is FDA-approved for the treatment of frown lines. This simple, non-surgical injection is also commonly used to reduce or eliminate forehead creases, crow’s feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck.
The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles, while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies have suggested that botulinum toxin can also be effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes that can occur over time, reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.
BOTOX works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet.
When topical acne medications do not provide satisfactory results, a clearer, healthy-looking complexion may be achieved with a chemical peel for acne or acne scars. An acne chemical peel is performed by applying a chemical solution to the skin. The solution causes the skin to blister and peel over a period of several days. As the treated skin comes off, fresh new skin replaces it. This exfoliation caused by the acne skin peel eliminates or reduces the appearance of acne blemishes and scars. Acne chemical peel treatments provide benefits in addition to acne treatment — they can improve the skin's pigmentation and make the skin smoother.
Laser hair removal is a safe, effective way to decrease hair growth in unwanted areas. Common areas treated in women include the face, underarm, or bikini area. Men commonly have treatment for their chest and/or back. While individuals with fair skin and dark hair respond the best to laser hair removal treatment, all patients can have positive results.
While undergoing laser hair removal, no anesthesia is necessary as with other laser modalities. The number of treatments depends on a multitude of factors, including skin tone, hair color and what phase of hair growth the hair is in when treated.
This is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures done in our nation. This convenient and noninvasive method can permanently remove undesirable facial and body hair. Your skin will look silkier and smoother with this procedure than with any other traditional procedure. This gently technique can be used to successfully treat larger areas with no downtime and less discomfort. At Santa Dora Hospital Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Clinic you can achieve optimal laser hair removal results
There are as many shapes and sizes of noses in the world as there are faces. No two are alike, although similarities of faces and their noses exist.

Also known as otoplasty, cosmetic ear surgery can improve the shape, position or proportion of the ear. It can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth, such as overly large ears or protruding ears, and can also treat ear shape that becomes more noticeable with development or misshapen ears caused by injury.
The most common otoplasty patients are children and adults bothered by protruding ears that may lack the folds and contours of ears that are closer to the head. In children, the cartilage is soft enough that reshaping the ear is less difficult than it is when operating on the hardened cartilage of adult ears.
Otoplasty is also appropriate for outer ear injuries or to repair earlobes, especially for pierced ears that are torn or stretched. Most torn earlobes can be repaired using delicate surgical techniques.
Almost everyone in the world has at least, 1 pigmented lesion. These lesions come about as a result of aging, or sun damage. Other lesions simply appear because the patient has a congenital disposition to develop them. Regardless, these lesions simply mean that the patients have a higher concentration of melanin in that spot. Melanin gives humans their bodily pigmentation. When exposed to the sun, the body has to produce more melanin to protect the body from UV rays. Over production gives humans overly red cheeks, sunspots or freckles.
Different scars require different treatments. A few common scars include:
Laser Scar Removal rejuvenates the skin, giving it a more youthful appearance by reducing the pore size, evening the skin tone, fading sunspots, dark spots and also decreasing fine lines. It is also used to treat facial redness due to veins and capillaries produced specially by rosacea.
Vitiligo (vit-ih-LIE-go) is a disease that causes the loss of skin color in blotches. The extent and rate of color loss from vitiligo is unpredictable. It can affect the skin on any part of your body. It may also affect hair, the inside of the mouth and even the eyes.
Normally, the color of hair, skin and eyes is determined by melanin. Vitiligo occurs when the cells that produce melanin die or stop functioning.
Vitiligo affects people of all skin types, but it may be more noticeable in people with darker skin. The condition is not life-threatening or contagious. It can be stressful or make you feel bad about yourself. Santa Dora Hospital Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Unit has the best treatment to cure Vitiligo, it is our joy to see our patients receive the finest and safest treatment in order to improve their quality of life.
Removal of a fold of skin plus the underlying fat dates back to the early part of the 20th century. If you have had Caesarean section deliveries, other abdominal surgery, pregnancy or other sources of weight gain and loss, an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck may offer a remarkable restoration of youthful contour as well as muscle tone.
Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. The most common causes of this include:
A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals. Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.
Skin tags are common, acquired benign skin growths that look like a small, soft balloons of hanging skin. Skin tags are harmless growths that can vary in number from one to hundreds. Males and females are equally prone to developing skin tags.
Skin tags are bits of flesh-colored or darkly pigmented tissue that project from the surrounding skin from a small, narrow stalk (pedunculated).
Flat or small buttocks can be enhanced by transferring fat harvested from another part of your body. We at Santa Dora Hospital offer buttocks augmentation, often called Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, to create a more rounded, lifted shape through fat grafting techniques.
Augmentation using fat grafting is an excellent option for adding shape to the buttocks. Women — and some men — are good candidates for the procedure if they have enough fat in another area of the body to use in the procedure. Patients should be healthy overall and at or near their target weights. A good candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift wants:
The thigh lift is a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure designed to tighten the skin of the thigh and reduce sagging in the inner or outer thigh. Men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight may be left with loose and sagging excess skin, especially on the upper legs. Thigh lift surgery offered at Santa Dora hospital can restore a slimmer, firmer look to the thighs, and can alleviate irritation and rashes that sometimes come from redundant skin.
A thigh lift reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. When performing the lift, a surgeon may remove either medial (inner) thigh skin or outer (lateral) thigh skin.
If fitness and weight loss efforts have not helped achieved your goals, a surgical thigh lift may be right for you.
To completely remove a tattoo, new treatments using lasers, which are more effective and cause less scarring than older surgical excision or dermabrasion procedures, can eliminate your tattoo with minimal side effects. Usually multiple laser sessions are needed to achieve the best results. At Santa Dora Hospital Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Unit we will make an evaluation to determine the approximate number of sessions that you will require and guarantee your satisfaction in results.
If you have troublesome localized fat tissue that is unresponsive to diet or exercise, liposuction assisted removal may be an extremely valuable procedure and deserves your consideration. Surgical removal of excess fat tissue has been performed for almost 100 years. However, until recently, the methods used required surface incisions and incision closures that did not usually leave minor scars.
Liposuction, sometimes referred to as "lipo" by patients, slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits which don’t even answer to weight loss and exercise and it improves your body contours and proportion.
Liposuction techniques may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the:
As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent. Sun exposure, aging and facial skin stretching also adds to this loss of facial volume.
Injectable wrinkle fillers can give you a more youthful look for a fraction of what a traditional facelift costs. Most will fill lines and wrinkles in less than 30 minutes with results that can last from 6 months to more than a year.
Wrinkle fillers can also be used as "volumizers,", Treating - Frown lines (glabellar lines), Crow’s feet (periorbital lines), Tear troughs (tired eyes), Nose to mouth lines ( nasolabial folds) and much more.
Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation and to lift and define the face.
Restylane is also mainly used for lip enhancement and are uniquely formulated to give your lips fullness and definition.
You may have deep worry lines above and between your eyes sagging of your cheeks, with a deep fold running from your nose down to your jawline, the development of jowls at the jawline, or may have an aged and poorly defined neck. You may have a chronic angry, sad or tired expression. You may have heaviness, or bags, under your eyes. Each of these is caused by a specific change in anatomy and we will make a proper diagnosis and explain the right operation for you.
It’s like making a bed! Wrinkles in the bed clothes cannot be smoothed by pulling on the covers, and a facelift isn’t successful if only the skin is tightened.
Pulling the skin tight only produces tight and shiny skin with unnatural movement. We need to tighten and reposition the deeper structures to restore youthful contour. Once this has been done, excess fat, if present, can be removed and the skin tightening is moderate and is used as the finishing touch, rather than as the only support.
This approach has the benefits of less risk of problems with healing, better scars because of lack of tension, more natural & youthful contours, and longer lasting results.
Face lift alleviates sagging in the face with aging. It smoothes deep creases below the eyes and tightens loose skin under the chin and jaw. It eases heaviness below the cheeks. A neck lift removes the visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck such as excess wrinkling of the neck skin, a ‘turkey wattle’ or double chin and jowl lines. A brow lift reduces the wrinkle lines that develop horizontally across the forehead. It improves frown lines and places the eyebrows in an alert and youthful position.
