"I don't want to look fake"

Both Women and Men are concerned about appearance and the aging process. We all begin to notice the effects of aging, and regardless of gender, we don't like it. Many of us have already realized there are ways to look younger without sacrificing are natural features that are who we are. Often, the goal is to maintain, enhance, or bring out our innate beauty.  


Men usually want to look more youthful while maintaining their masculine features, whereas many women want to soften features for a younger more feminine appearance. 


Good treatment requires experience.  Dr. Kleven and Dr. Straka bring over 25 years of that to the table.  We believe in only physician managed injections, which sets us apart.  Why would you trust your skin to any one other than a Board Certified Dermatologist!

Fillers

Good filler shouldn't make you look like you had something done, it should just make you look great! 


Superficial, deep and now mid level fillers are available.  We provide treatments for tear troughs, mid face, volume restoration, lower face, lip lines and lip augmentation, as well as several others.  We have 9 different fillers available with more to be added as they become available.  This allows us the ability to use the best product for your needs and not just make a filler fit.  It is all about how it is placed to achieve the desired effect.


 We offer numerous options to refine exactly what is needed and best for you.  Fillers are an "artists" touch that creates a more youthful appearance.  A "natural" look is what we strive for, don't be dissuaded by 'Hollywood overdoes', this is a great and wonderful low risk way to take years off your appearance.  They also provide preventative benefits.

Our fillers are Restylane-L, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra-plus, Volbella, Vollure, Voluma, and Sculptra.  ALL cosmetic injections are physician performed.

Botulinum Toxin A (Botox)

Look natural!  The product selection is important, the amount used is too...but HOW it is injected is the KEY to an excellent outcome!  No two people are injected exactly the same, one of the benefits of having a physician treat your forehead, crows-feet, frown lines, jaw line or neck.  We treat the individual and not on a "templated" format.   


Although the product selection and units used are important, it is the technique used and where injected that is key.  We take each individual for what they need, making treatments as natural looking as possible. 


Botox and Dysport are offered.  Price per unit ranges from $10-$14, depending upon the amount injected and if done with another cosmetic procedure. ALL cosmetic injections are physician performed.

Photo-Dynamic Therapy

Photodynamic Therapy is a chemical/laser treatment that dramatically reduces sun damage, pre-cancerous actinic keratoses of the skin, and thusly reduces the incidence of future skin cancer formation in the areas treated. It is a covered benefit on most insurance plans including Medicare, if you meet criteria. It is also highly effective for cosmetic reduction of blotchy pigmented sun damaged skin. 


Typically PDT is used to treat actinic keratoses on the head, neck and/or chest. This is the FDA indication for the treatment.  Although many use the older light activated systems, we at Highlander Dermatology use a laser activated system. Both systems work equally well on pre-cancer reduction, laser activation offers several extra benefits without any additional cost:

  1. Faster treatment, typically laser takes about half the time of blue light systems
  2. Less discomforting
  3. Dramatically improved cosmetic results with reduction of pigment and blood vessels that are not affected by blue light systems

Microneedling incorporates a specialized device with tiny needles, called a pen, which stimulates your body's natural collagen production. Collagen is a vital component to the structure of healthy, smooth skin. Also known as College Induction Therapy, microneedling instantly starts your skin's natural healing process, producing a more youthful, even complexion.


Best for those who desire skin rejuvenation on the face, neck, back, decolletage, arms, and hands. At Highlander Dermatology, we typically recommend three treatments every two to four weeks for optimal results.
