Noticable brown spots on sun-exposed skin typically appear as we age. It is important for these marks to be evaluated by a board-certified dermatologist prior to attempting removal.

Skin laxity is a common concern due to the loss of collagen and elastin that occurs with aging. After a complete evaluation of the underlying issues, Dr. Grodberg may recommend treatment using Exilis Ultra - radiofrequency energy, Secret RF - microneedling with radiofrequency and biostimulatory fillers such as Sculptra and Radiesse to target skin quality, and laxity. Highly requested areas include the abdomen, arms, chest, and thighs.

Submental fat, the cause of the condition known as “double chin”, can be addressed nonsurgically with Kybella injections. Kybella dissolves fat cells to reduce small areas of excess fat.

Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, can be treated with injections of Botox into areas with overactive sweat glands. This treatment is FDA approved for the armpits.

The results often last 3-6 months and can be especially helpful for special occasions like weddings and job interviews.
We all know the challenges – under-eye bags, crow’s-feet, dark circles or overall puffiness. Treating the skin surrounding our eyes is a “goodnews/bad news” story. The bad news is the eye-area has the thinnest skin on the body which makes it delicate and easily irritated. The good news is that skin is particularly responsive to treatments. Dr. Grodberg evaluates and discusses with each patient the right treatment approach, which may include Lasers, Skin Tightening devices such as Exilis Ultra and Secret RF, Fillers (Restylane and RHA-1), Neuromodulators such as Botox and topical cosmeceuticals.

She even offers a popular “Red Relief Package” combining several modalities for comprehensive coverage.

Laser hair removal removes unwanted body hair by destroying hair follicles with light energy. The laser beam targets the pigment in the hair and so it works best on dark hair in light skinned individuals.

The jawline is another highly noticeable facial feature that can benefit from Dr. Grodberg’s comprehensive knowledge for facial anatomy. Dr. Grodberg prefers a combination approach to achieving and maintaining jawline definition that she customizes for each patient. Expertly placed Fillers designed for this area, such as Juvederm Volux, and specialized techniques such as the “Nefertiti Lift” using neuromodulators like Botox, tightening devices like Exilis Ultra Radiofrequency and Secret RF can all be used to sculpt the lower face.
Thin lips, whether caused by genetics or aging, can be a source of concern for those who prefer a plumper pout. Fine lines around the mouth are a related issue that can now be addressed without adding volume to the lips. Procedures including Botox “Lip Flip” and microneedling can be used to improve this area. No matter your lip preference, Dr. Grodberg’s trained eye, expert injection techniques and extensive knowledge of the anatomy of the lip area, and familiarity with the latest innovations in injectable fillers and procedures will help you achieve your desired results.
