Minimally Invasive Procedures
Fillers are synthetic material that is injected into a wrinkle to decrease the wrinkle line. Most of the time, a local anesthetic is needed to administer the procedure. We can also prescribe a sedative to take by mouth. if you are anxious before the procedure. A consultation is needed first to decide which filler will best improve your concern. The Rosato Plastic Surgery Center only uses FDA approved fillers for your safety. Serious complications can occur if non FDA approved products are used. You will be swollen for up to 3 days and may have bruising. It is recommended to avoid excessive bruising that you are not on medication that may thin your blood.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and dysport
Botox Cosmetic works by temporarily blocking the muscles of the face, the block lasts 2 to 4 months. An over active muscle is the cause of wrinkles in our skin. Botox cosmetic and Dysport are available at The Rosato Plastic Surgery Center 5 days a week. You can return to work the same day.
Laser treatment of the skin
Dr. Rosato offers laser treatments of wrinkles, red and brown spots, and tattoo removal. Laser technology changes very rapidly due to new innovations. The most exciting new laser is a fractional CO2 laser, which combines the beneficial effects of the CO2 Laser and the Fraxel Laser. No anesthesia is required and a topical anesthetic cream is used to limit discomfort. The laser treats 30% of the skin at a time so down time is less than a week. Treatments are one month apart and usually 3 treatments are necessary to get the desired results.
Laser Hair Reduction
Laser hair reduction is offered at the Rosato Plastic Surgery Center. Multiple treatments are needed due to the fact that not all hairs grow at the same time. The treatment is completed as an outpatient procedure and you can return to work the same day. If you find the treatments uncomfortable, then a topical anesthetic may be applied prior the treatment to reduce discomfort.
Here at the Rosato Plastic Surgery Center we have carried the Obagi line since it was developed over 20 years ago. The program is a prescription skin care line used to treat early signs of aging, acne and pigmentation irregularities. The program does require monitoring to help patients achieve their optimal results. Rachel is an expert in directing the program and will help you along the way. Our licensed aesthetician Yulin has over 25 years of experience in providing clients with customized facial services designed especially for your individual skin care needs.

Chemical peels treat discolored skin as well as wrinkles. Depending upon your skin needs these peels can be customized from a very superficial treatment with little to no recovery time to a more extensive peel targeting pigmentation irregularities and wrinkles. These deeper peels usually require more downtime and will require about a week of recovery. Dr. Rosato has over 25 years of experience using TCA peels. Keep in mind that deeper wrinkles in the skin may require a more aggressive treatment such as dermabrasion or a laser procedure.
