Don’t let wrinkles and fine lines drain the life from your smiling face. Aging is inevitable, but it doesn’t have to mean dreading your own appearance. While there are hundreds of creams and masks on the market that claim to tighten up loose collagen and elastin, the sad truth is that most don’t provide your desired results. Trust in our talented team at Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics to bring out the youthful appearance you’ve been searching for.

Life is in the (Dermal) Details

If you’re looking for a nonsurgical solution to reverse the signs of aging, a liquid facelift by Dr. Birchall may be in order. This minimally-invasive procedure is beneficial for patients dealing with unsightly wrinkles, deep facial creases, sunken cheeks or hollowed eyes. Leave it to our highly-qualified crew to restore facial definition and fullness to your face, allowing you to radiate youth in a way that fits your specific needs.

Choose Confidence

Making a decision about something as permanent as your face can be frightening, but you can rest easy knowing that our team has got your back. The liquid facelift procedure includes a combination of injectable treatments and laser procedures, which can be customized to meet your unique problem areas. The four types of treatments used include neuromodulators, dermal fillers, natural fillers and lasers.


If you have wrinkles and lines around the forehead, eyebrows and eyes, then neuromodulators are a great choice. Formulations like Botox and Dysport work their anti-aging magic by relaxing your overworked facial muscles.

Although these medications are injected directly into the muscle, you will feel very little pain and an anesthetic is not required. This type of treatment is extremely effective in smoothing out creases on the upper half of your face, including those pesky crow’s feet.

The treatment only takes a few minutes to complete, but will leave you with almost instant results. Patients typically benefit from neuromodulators for three to four months before an additional treatment is suggested.

Dermal fillers

Another kind of injectable treatment is called a dermal filler. Three of our more popular fillers include Bellafill, Juvederm and Restylane, and are ideal for reducing lines and creases near the mouth and nose areas.

Whether you wear lines from the nose to mouth, mouth to jawline or around the corners of your mouth, you can likely benefit from these fillers. These formulations, however, are injected into the lower layers of the derma (skin).

With a deeper injection, the solution is able to provide more support to your overall skin structure, as well as add noticeable volume to your aging face. Results with dermal fillers usually last between six months to two years, depending on the facial areas it was used to treat.

Natural fillers

Natural fillers are also an effective way to combat the physical traits of aging. These fillers, as the name suggests, are a natural alternative to synthetic fillers.

Our team will carefully remove fat cells from one area of the body and transfer them to the face. This procedure helps diminish lines, define facial features and add volume to the lips. Although the process requires a local anesthetic, the results are permanent and only require a one-time treatment.


For clients seeking additional enhancement, Dermacare also offers skin rejuvenation in the form of lasers. With two options available, SmartSkin CO2® and Fraxel II, you can be sure to achieve your desired results.

SmartSkin CO2 is an ablative laser treatment that works by removing just the right amount of dermal layers to produce excellent results. This laser treats fine lines, facial wrinkles and mild-to-moderate skin laxity. If you’re hoping for thicker, firmer and more youthful skin, an ablative laser treatment will give you natural, long-lasting results.

Fraxel II also offers full skin renewal as a way to complement the results of our injectable treatments. In a grid-like pattern, micro injuries are created on your skin to trigger your body’s own healing process. The surrounding tissue is left untouched, allowing for minimal downtime following the procedure. If you’re looking to address your uneven skin tone, texture issues, enlarged pores or facial scars, this laser treatment may be right for you.
