Botox® used by Dr. DelToro to reduce facial wrinkles & reverse the signs of aging.
A neuromodulator is a chemical substance that affects nerve impulses. Botox is the most well-known neuromodulator, it contains small doses of the neurotoxin protein Botulinum toxin type A, which blocks muscle nerve activity temporarily. Originally used as a way to combat muscle spasms, Botulinum toxin type A is now widely used in medicine and cosmetics. The primary use of Botox is to combat lines and wrinkles around the forehead and eyes. It works by temporarily blocking signals between muscles and nerves. As a result, the muscles no longer contract and wrinkles, in turn, soften. Neuromodulators are highly effective at treating forehead lines, glabellar lines between the brows, crow’s feet, and neck bands, which are all dynamic lines and wrinkles.These form as a result of repeated muscle contractions. Neuromodulators will not be as effective on static lines and wrinkles, which are caused by sun damage and gravity.
A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. Botox ® works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother.
Botox® targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. Dr. DelToro will inject these muscles to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of the frown lines between your brows, your crow’s feet lines and your forehead lines.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is already found in your skin. It helps keep skin plump and hydrated. HA fillers are typically soft and gel-like. The results are temporary, lasting 6 to 12 months or longer before the body gradually and naturally absorbs the particles. Most HA fillers are infused with lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during and after treatment
FDA approved fillers utilized by Dr. DelToro include:
Sclerotherapy reduce and eliminate spider veins, capillaries and varicose veins permanently with a series of small injections into the unsightly veins found on the thighs and legs. The injected medicine causes the veins to collapse & disappear from sight. Appointments generally take an hour and results are apparent within 6-8 weeks. This treatment is best during the winter months as sun exposure is best avoided for 4 weeks after this procedure.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PrP) is a regenerative injection therapy for the treatment of thinning hair, non-autoimmune alopecia and male pattern baldness. Injections into the scalp are performed utilizing your platelets & growth factors, which are harvested from a simple blood draw. PrP reactivates the tissue repair cycle, the platelets & growth factors injected increase wound & tissue healing leading to regeneration & repair of tissues using the body’s own innate healing processes. The goal is to activate the hair growth cycle to improve thickness of hair & reduce thinning on the scalp. A numbing agent is used for comfort during injections. Typically, a session takes 1-1.5 hours; 3-6 sessions over 3-6 months are necessary. There is little to no downtime & patients typically return to their normal activities. Additionally, PrP is utilized to treat acute & chronic pain, ligament & tendon injuries & joint injuries to include: arthritis, tennis elbow, ACL injuries, rotator cuff tears, chronic plantar fasciitis, etc. .
PrP can also help with scars, improving movement & increasing flexibility
