Botox Baltimore is one of the most frequently performed non-surgical cosmetic treatments. It is used to prevent and treat wrinkles of the forehead, between the eyes, and beside the eyes (crow’s feet.) Botox/Dysport lasts for approximately 3 months and is a very simple procedure to have done. As a Baltimore Botox specialist, Dr. Schreiber has been using Botox for years and he is very experienced in dosage and placement. He also frequently combines Botox treatments with other non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures, like Juvederm,, Restylane, Viora, and chemical peels.
Baltimore Botox specialist, Dr. Jeffrey Schreiber, sees each and every Botox patient personally to thoroughly review their history and physical to see if Botox is right for them. Sometimes, Botox isn’t the only answer to his patient’s aesthetic goals, and he is very good at offering certain procedures in combination in order to complete a balanced facial rejuvenation. The Botox consultation and treatment can even be done on the same day. After Dr. Schreiber evaluates his patients, they are taken back to a very comfortable treatment room where the Botox treatment is performed. For discomfort, Dr. Schreiber is very in tune with his patients and he goes above and beyond to make the treatment as painless as possible. He uses ice beforehand and can even offer numbing creams for more sensitive patients.
The Baltimore Botox treatment takes only about 10-15 minutes, and can be done during your lunch break! There is no downtime or recovery, and patients can resume exercise the next day. Botox lasts about 2-4 months, and varies from patient to patient. Botox is practically the same thing as Dysport and Xeomin, two other products that are also used to relax the lines of the forehead, between the eyes, and crow’s feet beside the eyes.
Dysport is a relatively new procedure using Botulinum Toxin which was developed to treat the visual signs of aging by reducing or removing wrinkles. The procedure is considered a safe, effective way of treating aging skin. Common areas for Dysport injections include horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows and “crow’s feet” around the eyes. Dysport has proven to be the best non-surgical form of facial rejuvenation and is capable of producing phenomenal improvements in your appearance. Reasons for Considering a Dysport Treatment:
The procedure works by altering the facial muscles beneath the skin that are related to wrinkles. A cream with local anesthetic will be placed on your skin prior to treatment, and ice will be immediately applied upon completion of the Dysport treatment. Typically a small amount (1-2 cc’s) of Dysport is injected into the area of the wrinkle. Dysport works by blocking the impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles, thereby relaxing them. The result is the underlying facial muscles relax and the skin begins to smooth out. The effects of a Dysport treatment will last approximately three to six months after which the patient may choose to repeat the procedure.
Dr. Schreiber performs Dysport injections right in his office. In fact, Dr. Schreiber does the treatments, not a nurse or physician’s assistant. Dr. Schreiber’s office is easily accessible from Towson, Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Pikesville, Ruxton, Lutherville, Howard County, Annapolis, and Washington D.C.
Patients generally return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure, however following the post-procedure guidelines will dramatically reduce the length and intensity of the recovery period. Patients should avoid engaging in heavy physical exercise, applying cosmetics, or laying down flat for a minimum of 4 hours after the injections. It is also advisable to avoid rubbing or massaging the injected area for at least 24 hours.
Laser skin resurfacing with IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) or CO2 laser therapy is a great way to improve the quality of your skin and the appearance of your face. From fine lines and wrinkles to age spots, lasers are a wonderful way to get the glow back to your face and neck.
Laser skin resurfacing specialist, Dr. Jeffrey Schreiber, uses two lasers to treat the face. The first one is called IPL or intense pulsed light. This laser is very gentle and can be done in several minutes with no recovery. However, you may need 4-6 treatments in order to get the desired results. Many of Dr. Schreiber’s laser patients come in during lunch to get the IPL laser treatment. The only downside is a little redness. There is practically no pain and no recovery. Schedule a laser consultation with Dr. Schreiber to see if IPL laser treatment is right for you.
For a more intense laser treatment, patients have the option of getting the CO2 laser. This is a fantastic laser to go deeper than the IPL laser, getting more intense results. This laser requires you to have some sedation in the operating room setting. Dr. Schreiber commonly combines CO2 laser skin resurfacing with other facial cosmetic surgery procedures, like eyelid surgery, facelifts, and brow lifts. The recovery for the CO2 laser is more involved than the IPL laser. Patients typically take off 1-2 weeks from work as their skin heals during the recovery period. Dr. Schreiber and his staff will also see you several times before and after the CO2 laser treatment to help speed along the skin’s recovery. Oral pain medications are also commonly given to help with any discomfort from the laser.
Offering cosmetic surgery consultations, patients can come in to discuss which type of laser is right for them. Dr. Schreiber will spend as much time as you need describing the details of each one and what is involved with the laser treatments.
When it comes to rejuvenating the face, there are many options. Chemical peels are an essential part of facial rejuvenation and of keeping the skin of the face and neck youthful looking. The peels gently remove the outer layers of skin allowing the deeper layers to regenerate. This provides the face and neck with a younger looking, more refreshed appearance to the skin.
Chemical peel specialist, Dr. Jeffrey Schreiber, has years of experience performing chemical peels. For those patients looking for complete facial rejuvenation, he can even combine chemical peels with other procedures, like Botox, fillers, facelifts, and necklifts. When you come in for a consultation, Dr. Schreiber will thoroughly review your history and physical, to make the best recommendations for you. If you’d like to do the peel at the same time as the consultation, this can be arranged as well. For the actual chemical peel process, Dr. Schreiber will gently clean your face first. This is followed by the application of the peel. Chemical peels come in two basic strengths: 20% and 35%. If you’ve never had a peel before, Dr. Schreiber will most likely recommend the 20% strength peel. However, if you’re experienced in the chemical peel process and you’ve had one before, Dr. Schreiber can go right to the 35% peel.
During the chemical peel application, Dr. Schreiber will apply the peel in layers until he sees an adequate reaction to the peel. Usually, this can be done with 1-3 layers of the peel. One of Dr. Schreiber’s assistants will also cool the skin with cool compresses and a fan during the process to help minimize any discomfort.
Recovery from a chemical peel is very easy. You may have several hours of redness afterward with several days of peeling. Dr. Schreiber recommends the generous application of Aquaphor during the peeling process and also recommends facial sunblock lotion if you’re planning on being in the sun.
Fillers are materials made from naturally occurring substances in the human body and are used to fill in the lines and wrinkles of the face, neck, chest, and hands. Restylane can also be used to increase the definition and volume of the lips. Board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey Schreiber, currently used the following fillers: Restylane, Radiesse, Juvederm, Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, and Perlane. Fillers are easily injected right in the office with minimal downtime and discomfort. Furthermore, Dr. Schreiber does his own filler treatment, not a nurse or physicians’ assistant.
Reasons for considering a filler treatment:
Fillers – General Procedure
Fillers treatments are performed right in the office with very minimal downtime. In fact, many patients go right back to work the same day. Topical numbing cream is placed over the areas that you would like treated and occasionally Dr. Schreiber will recommend a dental block for complete numbness. The fillers are then injected and the entire procedure takes about 30 minutes.
Dr. Schreiber can also inject fillers with other cosmetic surgery procedures at Northwest Hospital in Randallstown, Maryland and at the SurgiCenter of Baltimore in Owings Mills, Maryland. Both of these facilities are easily accessible from Towson, Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Pikesville, Ruxton, Lutherville, Howard County, Annapolis, and Washington D.C.
Fillers – Recovery
Recovery takes about 1-2 hours and may involve minimal redness and slight bruising. Any discomfort is treated with Tylenol or ibuprofen. Ice is helpful to prevent any bruising and to assist with discomfort. You may exercise the same day and go back to work immediately.
Viora is the newest radio frequency device to help tighten the skin of the neck, jowls, and lower eyelids. It can also treat cellulite of the legs and tighten loose skin of the abdomen. When it comes to non-surgical facial and body contouring options, Viora is amazing. This revolutionary new device uses radio frequency waves to gently heat up the collagen of the tissues. This leads to tighter collagen formation and to deposits of new collagen giving a tighter, more youthful appearance to the skin.
Patients who complain of loose, hanging skin of the neck and jowls and who are not facelift candidates can benefit from Viora treatment.
Loose, saggy skin of the eyelids can also benefit from Viora. For those patients who don’t desire surgery or who are not surgical candidates, Viora might be able to help.
Cellulite patients can use Viora to smooth out areas of cellulite in the legs. Several treatments are required for optimal results and maintenance treatments yearly can help sustain the great results.
Dr. Jeffrey Schreiber is amazed by the results! He believes this is the best non-surgical treatment for skin tightening and cellulite treatment. Book a consultation with Dr. Schreiber, and he will spend a considerable amount of time with you to determine if Viora is right for you.

The actual Viora procedure is practically painless! In fact, the intensity of the device is increased incrementally to the point that results are obtained, but comfort is maintained. Treatments usually last 30-90 minutes and 4-9 sessions are typically required for optimal results. Maintenance treatments 1-2x/year afterward are required to continue keeping the skin tight.
