Keloid removal is a surgery used for larger formations. The techniques employed involve a scalpel, electric knife, and in some instances, laser removal. Any woman or man in good health who suffers from keloids and have realistic expectations could be a good candidate for this procedure. Recovery from keloid removal is quick with little or no pain involved. Your insurance may sometimes cover this procedure. Surgical keloid removal can cost an average of $1,425 starting at $800.
Surgical lipoma removal is a procedure where lipomas are removed surgically by cutting them out. This procedure is carried out under local anesthesia with some possible side effects such as bruising and scarring. However, with the minimal excision extraction technique, there is minimal scarring. There is also liposuction where the fatty lump is removed with a needle and large syringe. Full recovery for this procedure takes several days but is typically quick depending on how large the lipoma is. Patients will apply antibiotic ointment for 2-3 days until the incision is completely healed and will refrain from exercise, lifting, and training for two weeks. For large lipomas, pain medication may be required. Your insurance may cover this type of surgery. The final cost is about $1,500, mostly based on the findings during surgery and post-operative care required as well as the location, depth, and size of the lipoma.
Wart removal is a surgery conducted at a clinic or hospital. The primary type of wart removal is called curettage, generally performed in combination with laser wart removal or another wart treatment. Curettage is a highly effective and quick method used for a long time. But there is also electrosurgery, usually followed by curettage, and laser surgery, commonly used for the removal of warts on the soles of your feet. Your doctor may recommend wart removal only for the most difficult cases. If you had a wart for a few years without signs of improvement, the wart is causing you pain, and have tried other wart treatments with no results; you may be a good candidate for this procedure. Recovery time for this procedure is based on the number of warts removed and location on the body. Most patients resume normal activities in 1 to 3 days, and healing takes approximately 2 to 4 weeks. Surgery for wart removal is around $100 to $200 per surgery.
Mole removal can be accomplished surgically with two techniques, a surgical shave, or surgical excision. The surgical shave is a quick procedure where the mole is shaved with a scalpel, performed mostly on raised moles and under local anesthetic. Surgical excision is a more invasive approach where the mole and some skin in the area are cut out with a scalpel. Some stitches are required for this procedure, so a small scar is left, which will fade over time. To figure out whether you are a good candidate for this procedure, you should undergo an evaluation. Patients who have concerns about a mole being malignant may be good candidates. Recovery time can vary. Most patients are back to normal in several days or weeks if they got switches. If you have stiches, keep the area dry and avoid heavy exercise. Severe pain is rare, but soreness or itching is entirely natural. The average price of surgical mole removal is $425.
Endermologie is a non-surgical procedure and the first FDA-approved cellulite treatment, which uses a hand-held massaging device to massage the affected area, improve blood circulation, slim fat cells, smooth cellulite, and firm the skin. This procedure is commonly used after liposuction to help with swelling, and it should be combined with a healthy diet and exercising regime. The results can last several months. For visible results, six to ten treatments of 30-45 minutes may be required. Endermologie can cost $90 to $115 depending on the area treated.
Laser pigmentation removal is a non-surgical procedure that uses lasers to remove pigmentation in the most visible areas of the body such as the face, neck, chest, arms and hands. If you want to improve the appearance of uneven pigmentation and superficial scars, you may be a good candidate for this procedure. After treatment, the patient may experience temporary reddening and skin discoloration in the treatment site. However, this treatment is so gentle that many patients get it done prior to work or during the lunch break. There are no side effects, no numbing injections or gels, and no need for extra measures to protect the skin. This nonsurgical procedure costs an average of $175 per treatment.
Fraxel laser treatment is a technologically advanced procedure that stimulates the production of elastin and collagen by making controlled tiny injuries to the skin. When the skin repairs these injuries, new skin cells are formed also healing any damage from sun exposure and skin problems. Patients with sun damage, stretch marks, wrinkles, and fine lines are the best candidates for this procedure. It’s a safe procedure with no known side effects. After treatment, you must be gentle with the skin and apply sunscreen. It’s natural for the skin to feel tight and itchy. If you experience uncomfortable swelling, cold compresses can help and over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs. The average cost of this procedure is $1,600.
Injectable fillers or dermal fillers are widely used mainly for wrinkle treatment, lip augmentation, and scar removal, leaving the patient looking more rested and rejuvenated. They can be injected in less than an hour with little to no downtime required. Side effects such as bruising, swelling, or redness are all temporary. The results can last up to 6 months and in some cases as long as a year. At Jolie, we use Restylane and Juvederm for men and women between the ages of 35 and 65. However, some patients over 18 and 65 may also qualify. Patients pregnant, breastfeeding, with adverse skin illness, and negative allergic reactions, should not get Restylane and Juvederm injections. You can resume your normal routine right after treatment but should avoid exposure to sunlight for three days or longer, should not drink any alcohol, and gently massage the area injected as instructed by your surgeon. Cold compresses help with swelling and ensures quick healing. The cost of one syringe of Restylane and Juvederm is $500. The total cost is based on how much the patient needs to get the desired effect.
Sculptra is a filler made of a synthetic form of alctic acid, called poly-L-lactic acid, which is something the body produces naturally after exercise, a potent collagen stimulator. After injected, this filler triggers the body to build its own collagen. While the results are seen 4-6 months after, you will continue seeing changes through the 9th month. Scluptra can last 2-3 years after several treatments are completed, so is considered a good investment when compared with other fillers, which generally last up to a year. After treatment, you will experience some swelling, which will subside in less than a week with some mild to moderate bruising and other side effects such as tenderness, itching, and redness. The average cost of this procedure in Miami is of $1,575.
Non-surgical facial rejuvenation combines several procedures such as Botox, facial laser hair removal, lip augmentation, platelet-rich plasma, micro laser peel, permanent makeup, and others, to restore your skin’s natural glow. These procedures address the early signs of aging with the use of proven technology to rejuvenate the face and neck. Good candidates for this procedure are healthy patients, showing signs of aging that can’t be treated with surgery alone, with realistic expectations, who want to look younger, refreshed, and seek natural results. After facial rejuvenation, you will receive special instructions about your postsurgical care. Based on the procedures performed, after skin resurfacing, the face is covered with protective ointment, and bandages as needed. When a facelift, fat grafting, and laser surgery are combined, the face will be swollen and bruised at first. While recovery varies from patient to patient, your surgeon will talk about the symptoms you may experience during your initial consultation. Facial rejuvenation is considered elective; therefore your insurance may not cover these costs. The total cost is based on the procedures selected.
Permanent makeup is a medically-proven method that applies specific natural pigments into the skin with the help of a thin needle. This technique is safe, and it comprises a variety of cosmetic enhancements such as eyeliner, eyebrows, and lip liner. If your eyebrows, lashes or lips are pale, lack definition, you have a makeup allergy, or scarring you wish to camouflage, and don’t have much time to apply makeup regularly, you are probably a good candidate for permanent makeup. The procedure takes about one hour, and the results can last approximately five years or longer. After treatment, patients should keep the area moist; avoid shower water on the treated area, as well as lotions, and makeup for 14 days. Sunbathing should be avoided for seven days and alcoholic drinks for at least three days. Patients are also advised to avoid sleeping on their face for several weeks. The average cost of permanent makeup is $450 based on the areas treated. At Jolie, we charge $250 for the eyebrows, $150 for the eyeliner and $250 for the lips.
Botox is a treatment FDA approved to temporarily reduce the look of facial lines, creases, and wrinkles in young and older patients. This medication is injected into the underlying muscles making the signs of aging less noticeable. The results are seen in just 24 to 48 hours. You may consider Botox if you are in good health, and have moderate to severe wrinkles located in treatable areas. After Botox treatment, you should follow a few aftercare tips such as avoid touching and rubbing the treated area, take pain-killers if you feel any pain or discomfort, and do gentle face exercises. The cost ranges from $75 - $1,300 with an average of $550.
Platelet-rich plasma or PRP injections, also known as “vampire facelift,” use the patient’s own platelets and fibrin to treat scars and wrinkles in the face, neck, and hands. This therapy uses your own blood by injecting plasma back into your skin. Each treatment takes about 20 minutes, and the results can last up to 18 months. If you want a refreshed look, but without the use of harmful chemicals and toxins, you are a possible candidate. After PRP, your surgeon may recommend that you rest the treated area. However, most patients can continue their daily activities following PRP. PRP injections cost about $800 to $1,500 based on the treated area.
