Even people who take great care of their skin sometimes want a little help to enhance their look. At Reliant, our Division of Dermatology offers a number of ways to improve the look of your skin, including Botox, Juvederm and chemical peels. What treatment works best for you depends on your individual needs.
This injected purified protein helps relax the muscles that cause fine lines, wrinkles and folds. It is ideal for the “expression lines” in the face that develop as we age. For this reason, it is often used on the forehead and between the eyebrows and in the area by the eyes where crow’s feet develop. It can also be used to improve skin texture, soften dimpling and other uses, including for wrinkles that appear during movement.
Made of hyaluronic acid, Juvederm is a smooth gel filler that is designed to fill in the grooves and lines in your skin rather than relaxing them. It helps eliminate wrinkles and creates a smoother appearance for the skin. Juvederm is more suitable for the wrinkles that are present when your face is at rest.
Both Botox and Juvederm work quickly and the results should be noticeable within a couple of days after treatment. To maintain the results, additional treatments are needed. Botox results typically last three to six months but treatment times can be extended the more it is used. Juvederm treatment lasts from about nine months to 18 months depending on the concentration used.
Over time, exposure to the sun and elements can cause damage to our skin. Chemical peels can help remove the damaged outer layers of skin and promote skin cell growth, improving the overall look and texture. Many people utilize chemical peels for everything from large pores to pigmentation problems. Chemical peels can be performed on the face and other areas of the body including the neck, chest and back.

Does anybpart if any insurances cover any part of these services? I currently am a client at ideal image and get both juvaderm filler and botox done andni get very low rates by being a member and have bought an annual membership which gives me access to the lowest rates out there versus someone off the street .but jf any insurance companies pay for some of these injectable or the prices were to be the same as I pay or lower than where i currently am a client id consider changing.im already in with the reliant group for my medical needs. Thank you
Hi Rachel. Insurance does not cover typically cosmetic serivces. We do charge a $100 nonrefundable consultation fee that is put towards the service.
The first time I was referred to dermatology, there were no providers available. The second time I had to wait over 6 months to see a dermatologist for a concern. My provider even followed up on the late appointment and I called asking about cancellations. Neither helped. Now they have time for cosmetic appointments. Why don’t they hire providers for medical care first?
Hi, Sue. The good news is we now have several dermatologists available for a wide range of care. Please call (508) 595-2655 if you need to schedule an appointment.
Does insurance cover it
Cosmetic services are typically not covered by health insurance, but it’s best to double check with your insurance company
Do these treatments are covered by my insurance?
Insurance does not typically cover cosmetic services, but you can always double check to be sure.
I have some dry skin tht I use Triamcinolone. Dr, Howe prescribed Triamcinolone.
Also, I have a small growth near my ear like a bump. Can someone look at this
and advise me? Does Dr. Howe need to refer me?
You can call me to discuss.
We suggest you contact your primary care provider and they can refer you if necessary.
