As skin ages, it becomes thinner and less elastic as collagen and elastin, the tissues that keep the skin firm, become weaker and begin to break down. These changes lead to fine lines, sagging skin and other unwanted signs of aging. Dr. Anayo Umerah is a skilled physician who is prepared to help your skin look fresh, young and healthy.

Many factors influence the treatment that Dr. Anayo may recommend to rejuvenate your face, including age, health, skin type, and the amount of sun damage. We can also recommend rejuvenation procedures for other areas, such as the skin on the neck, shoulders, or hands. In some cases, more than one treatment may be used to produce better and longer-lasting results.
Skin care: Either prescription or non-prescription, topical skin-care products are usually used to treat milder signs of aging, such as fine lines and superficial wrinkles. Topical skin care also offers preventive value and can reduce the need to repeat procedures or increase the time between them. We offer SkinMedica® products, including TNS Essential Serum®.
Botox®: Look years younger in practically no time through the magic of Botox. Botox injections erase the wrinkles, creases and fine lines that gradually appear as we age. Botox injections only take a few minutes and there is no downtime necessary, so you can get back to your normal activities immediately following your treatment. Botox works by reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent frown lines and crow’s feet. After treatment, most patients see results within a few days. Your skin will remain smooth and unwrinkled for up to four months. Botox can be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as facial fillers, for further skin enhancement.
Juvederm®: This non-surgical treatment restores a youthful appearance to your skin – from fine lines to deep wrinkles. Juvederm is an injectable gel that is safe and long-lasting. Made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that helps maintain skin volume and hydration, Juvederm creates a fuller appearance by plumping the skin to add volume. Treatment is safe and has no recovery period, with results that can last up to a year.
Radiesse Volumizing Filler®: This treatment provides immediate facial volume correction while stimulating production of your own natural collagen. Radiesse Volumizing Filler contains calcium-based microspheres similar to the naturally occurring minerals found in your body. Over time, these tiny microspheres are absorbed by your body and leave behind only your own natural collagen. This treatment works especially well on the deep wrinkles between your nose and mouth. Results may last a year or more.
Restylane®: This skin filler restores natural volume to your skin, correcting fine lines, creating fuller lips, and enhancing the shape of your cheeks, chin or hollows below your eyes. Restylane treatments are quick and the results will last 4-10 months depending upon the areas treated and the amount of motion in the area. Restylane offers an immediate and safe way to attain a more youthful-looking facial appearance.
Microdermabrasion: This non-surgical procedure uses micro-particles, or a diamond-tipped wand, to remove some of the top skin layer (epidermis) and stimulate new skin growth. This procedure uses the gentle abrasive action of tiny crystals to polish the skin. The non-invasive treatment produces virtually no discomfort, requires no topical or local anesthetic, and involves practically no recovery or downtime. Multiple treatments spaced two to three weeks apart are needed, as well as a maintenance program.
Chemical peels (SkinMedica® and Apeele®): Chemical peels are used to treat wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, skin discoloration, age spots, dull skin texture, and mild acne scars by applying a chemical solution to remove the outer layers of skin and stimulate new skin growth. The new skin is usually smoother, softer, less wrinkled, and more even in color. Results are often visible after one treatment. Chemical peels may produce reddening and peeling similar to sunburn, which typically lasts a few days to several weeks, depending on the strength and depth of the peel. We offer a gentler treatment from SkinMedica, which causes little or no visible peeling.
