Dermal fillers and muscle relaxing medications soften and reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and restore volume to lips, cheeks and chin. The procedures are non-invasive and are done in our office. They involve little or no down time or discomfort, and results are immediate, lasting for up to a year.
FDA-approved and used by millions of patients, Botox Cosmetic is derived from botulinum toxin Type A. It works by blocking nerve impulses to injected muscles, relaxing those that cause frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet around the eyes and horizontal lines on the forehead.
Similar to Botox Cosmetic, Dysport is a muscle relaxant medication made from botulinum toxin Type A. It is used to treat frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet around the eyes and horizontal lines on the forehead. It was approved by the FDA in 2009.
JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® fillers are smooth gels made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the skin. It is injected into areas of the face that have lost volume due to the aging process. It can be used to fill lines that appear around the corners of the mouth (smile lines), creases that extend from the mouth to the jawline (marionette lines) and the fine, vertical lines that extend above the upper lip. It can also be used to restore volume loss in cheeks and tear troughs, as well as adding volume for lips.
To maximize comfort during the procedure, local anesthetic cream is often applied to the skin prior to injection. The gel itself also contains lidocaine to minimize discomfort. Patients on medications such as blood thinners, aspirin, ibuprofen or fish oil may be more prone to bruising after the procedure.
The body’s largest organ, your skin is ever changing — assaulted by sun and wind, chemicals and germs, hormones and age. Like any living entity, it needs proper nourishment and care to look and perform its best. At your first visit to O’Donnell Vein & Laser, our skilled and experienced Annapolis laser specialists will provide a complimentary consultation. Together, we will discuss your goals and develop a personalized treatment plan to give you the results you desire and improve the health and beauty of your skin.
Commonly used on the face, neck, décolletage and hands, photofacials filter broadband light to target specific tissues without affecting surrounding skin. The Forever Young BBL™ can improve skin tone and texture, reduce the appearance of age spots or freckles and reduce redness associated with small veins and rosacea. Studies have shown that regular photofacials can reduce sun damage over time. A recent study showed that regular treatments of broad spectrum light delivered 2 to 4 times per year appeared to delay the emergence of the visible signs of skin aging; including age spots, wrinkles and laxity.
In this study, 15 patients ranging in age from 38 to 69 years received at least one annual BBL treatment for a period of 5 to 11 years. Professional evaluators were then asked to estimate the patients’ ages, using both pre- and post-treatment photos. The evaluators estimated the median post-treatment age to be 45 — and the patients’ actual median ages were 55! To read a whitepaper on the study click here.
A word on our laser: We work exclusively with the Sciton laser because it is 12 times more effective than a CO2 laser. CO2 lasers tend to transfer much more heat to the skin, resulting in more redness and recovery time.
Most commonly used on the face, neck, décolletage and hands, fractional laser skin resurfacing repairs wrinkles, discoloration and scarring caused by sun damage or mild to severe acne. Additional results include improved skin tone and texture, pore size and tautness. Treatments generally last 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the targeted area and level of correction needed.
This laser targets color in blood vessels and pigments in spots on the skin. This color causes spots and blood vessels to look different from the rest of the skin and stand out, but the Excel V+ Laser has green laser energy that is absorbed by the color difference. In unwanted blood vessels, this laser light converts to heat energy and collapses the vein, sealing it shut. The body naturally diverts blood flow to other healthier vessels and absorbs and eliminates the problem vessels. On unwanted spots and lesions, the laser energy is absorbed by the cells. These darken and then flake off to reveal an even, healthy skin tone beneath. The laser uses dual-wavelength light energies to target different issues on the skin.
Laser Genesis skin therapy is an advanced innovative technology, non-ablative laser, that promotes vibrant and healthy-looking skin in men and women. Now you can have a youthful appearance by treating those conditions that are typically associated with signs of aging, such as sun damage, excessive redness, large pores, uneven texture, and fine-lines and wrinkles.
Applying light energy in a series of rapid, gentle pulses, the SkinTyte™ procedure improves skin firmness on any area of the body. Infrared energy produces targeted heating of soft tissue, which initiates tissue coagulation and collagen contraction. Popular areas of treatment include the face, neck, abdomen and arms.
A non-invasive procedure, laser hair removal produces longer lasting results than other removal methods such as shaving, tweezing, waxing or electrolysis. Treatments, generally between 15 and 45 minutes each, are recommended in packages of five, scheduled several weeks apart, in order to disable all active hair follicles.
“I went to Dr. O’Donnell because of all the tiny red veins on my face and neck that had blended together. She used her laser to zap those veins away, and now I have chemical peels in between the laser treatments. As a result, my skin is smoother and my face and neck are clear and bright. I really love the results and I am an O’Donnell Vein & Laser fan!”
“I visited O’Donnell Vein & Laser to see if Dr. O’Donnell and her staff could help repair years of sun damage and blemishes from changing hormones. Dr. O’Donnell saw me the same day (I walked in unscheduled). She was wonderful! She set me up with a treatment plan — the BBL therapy. I am very happy with my results and plan to return in the very near future!”
“Have you ever looked in the mirror and realized you have really aged, you don’t want your picture taken, and you don’t want nor can afford surgery? This is how I felt, so I went to O’Donnell Vein & Laser and the staff was exceptional. They listened to my worries and showed me what they could do for me. They have given me my confidence back. I trust them 100 percent.”
“When I first went to O’Donnell Vein & Laser, I was a bit nervous for my broadband laser treatment, but the moment I walked into the comfortable and incredibly friendly office my fears disappeared. The staff is terrific and walked me through each step of the process. I have NEVER had anyone stop me and say my skin looks great and now I do! I just don’t know why I waited so long. I would recommend them for any of their treatments and hope soon I can afford them all!”
“I had such a great first-time experience at O’Donnell Vein & Laser! The office is large and well decorated and the staff is very kind and informative. I received a great laser hair removal treatment, and I was assured of my comfort and satisfaction. I will be back again this week and definitely recommend this place to others!”
