Minimally Invasive Procedures
In the past 20 years, few areas have grown like the use of "non-operative" procedures. These procedures include the use of skin care products, lasers, botox and dermal fillers. There has also been a large number of procedures, techniques and devices that have hit the afternoon talk shows with great fury to just as quickly drop off the market because the reality failed to live up to the hype.
Dr. Fulks has watched this part of the plastic surgery world very closely. Investing in poorly designed technology with unproven outcomes is not only unwise, but can lead to unsatisfied patients and difficult to explain failures. We believe that our years of training and experience helps us make appropriate evaluations of these new products. Conservative adoption of these new "minimally invasive" technologies and products has been our philosophy.
Skin Care systems (Obaji & Theraderm), Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, Blue Peel, TCA, Jessner peels etc. are products that we have been using for several years and that we have found offer reasonable, reproducable and effective outcomes for our patients.
We continue to evaluate new products and add proven and effective options for our patients.
