Procedure Description:
Injectable dermal filler gel

What To Expect:
As you age, your skin changes. For example, it reduces production of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). Over time, the loss of HA in your skin results in facial wrinkles and folds, like those "parentheses" lines around your mouth. Juvederm injectable get replaces the HA you skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away wrinkles and folds. A breakthrough in HA dermal fillers, Juvederm is the first smooth-consistency HA gel and is FDA approved to last up to a year! Everyone will notice, but no one will know . . . You can experience the benefits of Juvederm injectable gel in a quick, in-office procedure. Dr. Kelly Hynes will ease Juvederm under your skin to instantly smooth out the wrinkles and folds on your face and around your mouth. You'll see the difference immediately!




The History of BOTOX

Botox was researched and developed by an Ophthalmologist and has been used since the late 70s for many medical conditions by surgeons and others. Although relatively new in the cosmetic industry, in the 70s Ophthalmologists began injecting botulium toxin into tiny eye muscles to treat "lazy eye". In the 1980s, the drug was used to correct other facial, eyelid and limb diseases such as tremors and spasms. It was during a procedure in the late 1980s that the cosmetic benefit was first noticed. A patient was injected for eye spasms and it became apparent that their frown lines had notably diminished. The cosmetic use of Botox was researched and published in the early 1990s.

Botulinum toxin or Botox can be used to make a dramatic improvement in the lines of expression we see on our foreheads, between our eyebrows and around our eyes. It can improve the appearance of an angry or unhappy look caused by these furrows for THREE  to FOUR months.

The Procedure:

Botox injection takes about 5 minutes and feels like a pin-prick.  The number of injections required depends on the specific patient needs.  Most patients have no side effects. An occasional patient will have a small bruise at the injection site.

Fraxel Laser Therapy

Dr. Kelly Hynes and her staff are excited and proud to announce that we are now offering Fraxel Laser Therapy to Columbia and the Midlands. Fraxel is the newest and most revolutionary technology in facial rejuvenation. For your information, access the Today Show website at
: for their segment on Fraxel. It was featured in their Medical Miracles segment.

The Fraxel Laser utilizes a new technology called Fractional Resurfacing. With this technology, the desired results are obtained by treating a fraction of the skin's surface at a time. During the treatment, microscopic closely spaced laser spots are delivered to the skin, while simultaneously preserving normal healthy skin between these spots. This preservation of healthy skin between the laser spots results in rapid healing following the laser treatment.

The Fraxel Laser has been FDA approved for the treatment of wrinkles around the eyes and the treatment of age spots, sun spots, and sun-damaged skin. We are using this laser to accomplish full facial resurfacing, as well as other areas. Clinical studies suggest that an effective treatment plan is typically 4 laser sessions, spaced about 4 weeks apart. Results are immediate and progressive, with the optimal cosmetic result visible a few months following the final treatment.

Treatments with the Fraxel Laser have no significant recovery downtime. There is no need for pain medication after the treatment because any discomfort is minimal. The skin may have a pinkish tone like a sunburn for a few days, which is a normal sign that the skin is healing. Patients typically return to work immediately following their treatment. Women can wear make-up right after treatment and men may shave, as well.

Although a service of 4 Fraxel Laser Treatments normally cost $5000 for full face, we are discounting full face Fraxel Treatment to $2700. We always offer a FREE consultation with patients who believe they would benefit from this new laser technology or who have questions about it.

Fraxel Laser Therapy is becomming the New "Gold Standard" for acne scars. Not all acne scars will respond well to this laser, however. The Fraxel can significantly improve undulating or "saucer-like" acne scars. These are scars that are wider than they are deep. On the other hand the effects are less beneficial for "ice-picks" scars--tiny deep holes that look like they were made with an ice-pick.

Fractional resurfacing is a breakthrough in improving the quality of the skin. This revolutionary treatment can be helpful in addressing many bothersome skin problems such as wrinkles, acne scars, scars, sun damage, brown spots and other skin problems. The true advantage of the technology is the ability to acheive great results with minimal downtime.

Post-procedure: Most patients experience 1-2 days of swelling, 2-4 days of pinkish, sunburned looking skin, and 4-7 days of rough feel and/or skin flaking. This can be diminished by applying quality skin cream. There is minimal discomfort after treatments and patients can apply cosmetics immediately. While the risks of negative effects do exist, the outcome is typically very favorable as compared to other treatments in terms of effectiveness, tolerability and side effects.
