Cosmetic Services

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) :  Dr. Borton first introduced IPL technology to Idaho over 10 years ago.    In spite of the fact that IPL was pioneered greater than 20 years ago, improved versions of this light device continue to be the work-horse  of many cosmetic dermatology practices because of the broad range of improvements it has to offer patients with aging skin.   IPL addresses the redness and dilated blood vessels of rosacea patients, the brown or blotchy hyperpigmentation of aging and sun-damaged skin and improves texture, pore size, and fine lines.     Dr. Borton was trained in IPL as well as lasers by Dr. Roy Grekin, Chief of Dermatology Surgery at University of California San Francisco.   Dr. Grekin is a well-recognized expert in this field and has been instrumental in bringing many lasers to FDA approval, including the Cutera IPL/laser which we currently use.    IPL is a series of 5 treatments with at least 3-6 weeks between treatments.  The health and texture of your skin is beautiful after a series of IPL.  We do offer individual treatment, but know that it does take a series of 5 treatments to see maximum results and by purchasing a package of 5 you receive 1 treatment at no cost.

Fillers:  Dr. Borton trained in the early 1980s with the pioneers of the first filler, Collagen. She has been injecting fillers for 30 years, since her dermatology residency at University of California San Francisco.   At the present time, the fillers used in our practice are: Restylane, and Sculptra.

Sculptra:  Dr. Borton has been injecting Sculptra for over 5 years and is considered an expert injector.   Sculptra is a filler which increases the volume of aging skin through a series of injections which result in a more youthful and lifted appearance.   It is known as the “Liquid Face Lift.”

Dysport is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial muscles still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling in untreated areas. Dysport ultimately results in in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily prevents contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.

Laser Genesis: Cutera
Cutera is a staple of skin care for every doctor's practice. It's a multi-purpose, all season, all skin type solution for overall skin health. Cutera protects the epidermis, targets microvasculature and stimulates collagen production. By gently heating the dermis it improves wrinkles; corrects diffuse redness, rosacea; smoothes skin texture and shrinks pore size. This procedure involves no downtime, minimal discomfort and no disposables.
