Youthful Skin Starts Within...
Sculptra® is a unique collagen volume stimulating treatment, ideal for sagging, wrinkled or aging skin and produces a remarkable non-surgical facial filling. As we age, we lose collagen and our faces 'deflate'. Folds, wrinkles and hollowness appear on our faces. Unlike other products that temporarily correct skin imperfections, Sculptra naturally stimulates the body to produce its own collagen, resulting in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.
Sculptra can last up to 2 years, though some patients have experienced results lasting much longer. Unlike surgical procedures, there is none of the downtime and as we continue to age, adjustments are easily made at any time. If you are in your 30's, it is the ideal time to begin Sculptra as a preventative strategy and can be done a little at a time.
Injectables & Fillers
"Since 2002, doctors have used Botox® Cosmetic to treat moderate to severe frown lines. Now Botox Cosmetic is also FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe Lateral Canthal Lines (Crow's Feet)."
Botox® reduces moderate to severe lines between the brows, crow's feet and forehead area. Botox has also been effectively used in treating excessive perspiration disorders and migraine headaches. Botox is injected to prevent muscle contraction, thus allowing the skin to take on a smoother appearance in the treated areas. Results often last for 3 - 4 months.
Dysport is a prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally.
And because Dysport delivers the natural-looking results people want, 97% of users say they’d do it again. Dysport is approved in 69 countries2 and has 25 years of clinical experience worldwide.
Dysport® temporarily immobilizes the muscles you use to frown, Dysport can smooth out those lines, restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face. Because you will be physically unable to frown after treatment, you may even lose the urge to frown. Results last up to 4 months.

We successfully treat all types of acne from teenage to adult, with most treatments showing results in less than 30 days. We can dramatically improve the long-term effects of acne including scaring and pitting. While your treatment will be medically based, we understand the importance of healthy, beautiful skin and we will work with you to deliver the best possible medical and cosmetic solutions available.
There are often several treatment options dependent upon your budget, desired outcome and time frame. Dr. Cantrell, a Board Certified Physician and Professor of Dermatology with a personal interest in acne and cosmetic results will determine your treatment. For many of our patients, ending their acne issues has lead to dramatic changes in their self-image, their relationships and even in their careers. Curing acne can be the first step in achieving the clear skin you've always wanted.
A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun.
Alpha-hydroxy acid or another mild acid is used to penetrate only the outer layer of skin to gently exfoliate it. The treatment is used to improve the appearance of mild skin discoloration and rough skin as well as to refresh the face, neck, chest or hands.
Superficial peels require one to seven days to heal. Treated skin will initially be red and may scale. Lotion or cream should be applied until the skin heals, followed by daily use of sunscreen.
Microdermabrasion treatments use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage and stretch marks. At Cantrell MD we utilize a crystal-free microdermabrasion.
