Botox® can be used to erase wrinkles from your forehead area and around your eyes.  The results typically last from 3-4 months.   It is not permanent; and its effects will be most beneficial if you consistently get it done 3-4 times per year.  It can also be used for non-cosmetic purposes, such as to treat medical conditions like chronic migraines; blepharospasm (involuntary eyelid movements); and cervical dystonia.

Juvéderm® is an FDA-approved injectable filler used to correct facial wrinkles and folds.  It can smooth facial wrinkles, smile lines, and create plumper lips through lip enhancement.  Its effects can last up to one year.

Dr. Dooley is a board-certified medical doctor (MD) who has extensive knowledge of the anatomy of the face and has completed comprehensive cosmetic training.  Please call us at 248-946-4905 if you would like to schedule a free consultation.

 

Sports Physicals 50% Off

sports-physical-northville-novi-plymouth-farmington-miA sports physical exam is different from your annual physical or well-child exam.  During sports physicals, the doctor’s emphasis is to identify any potential medical problems that would put your child at increased risk of injury, harm, or death during sports.  Since most sudden deaths in adolescent athletes are caused by heart conditions, the physical exam and medical history will place an emphasis on the heart and family history of heart disease. 

Your child may be at risk for adverse outcomes related to sports if they experience shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, or fainting during sports.  However, many athletes will have no symptoms at all.   Sudden death in adolescent athletes is extremely rare; the pre-participation sports physical can help you determine your child’s risk.

Dr. Dooley is currently offering a 50% discount on sports or camp physicals if you mention this blog.  Call us today to schedule a sports or camp physical.  (248) 946-4905
