Let us start by answering the question most of our potential patients have.
What is a Rejuva Center?
There are several innovative beauty breakthroughs that can rejuvenate the face instantly and affordably without the risks and downtime of surgery. The Williams Rejuva Center offers these non surgical innovations to reduce wrinkles, improve your skin, and beautifully reshape your face in one simple office treatment that can last for 3 months or longer. We offer convenient scheduling, efficient, courteous service and follow-up care all within a private, secure setting.
The Williams Rejuva Center assures clinical excellence under the direction of Dr. Edwin F. Williams III, M.D., F.A.C.S. Our Cosmetic Nurse Specialists are highly trained registered nurses and nurse practitioners practicing under the direction of Dr. Edwin Williams. The Williams Rejuva Center Cosmetic Nurse Specialists attend advanced training sessions on an annual basis to continue to support and enhance the benefits of our treatments, ensuring the beauty of your skin.
A visit to The Williams Rejuva Center begins with an in-depth consultation with the Nurse Practitioner and/or Cosmetic Nurse Specialist under the direction of Dr. Edwin Williams.
You will learn about the latest techniques, innovative procedures and medically based skin care treatments that will noticeably improve your skins overall look, vitality, and performance. Dr. Edwin Williams, the Nurse Practitioner, and/or Cosmetic Nurse Specialists will then design a program to help you meet your individual goals and needs.
Same day consultations as well as treatments are available for your convenience.
Minimally invasive procedures require little or no downtime. The Williams Rejuva Center offers a number of minimally invasive procedures including BOTOX, Restylane, Juvederm, Sculptra, Radiesse, Perlane, medicated skin creams, medical facial peels, laser treatments, and facial rejuvenation programs.
While BOTOX Cosmetic acts to relax the muscles and smooth lines, Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse, and Juvederm act to plump up or fill in lines. Medicated creams, medical facial peels, and Candela Lite Touch laser treatments are all scientifically proven to stimulate collagen production. As we age, we lose collagen, so why not stimulate it!
BOTOX Cosmetic and the new state-of-the-art dermal fillers, such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, and Radiesse, have transformed the war against wrinkles. BOTOX Cosmetic is used to reduce wrinkles in the forehead (parallels), around the eyes (smile lines), upper lip (vertical lip lines), and mouth. Soft tissue dermal fillers are used in creative ways to compliment each other, such as our Layering Technique. After extensive training we found that each filler has a specific purpose and/or areas in which it works the best. For example we’ve found that Restylane and Juvederm give lip enhancement a soft more natural feel where Radiesse, being a firmer product, gets a great result in the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. These products provide an ideal and safe alternative for patients who are not quite ready for surgery, or are looking for ways to maintain results for the years following their surgical procedure.
Medicated skin creams that contain Tretenoin (Retin-A) are scientifically proven to stimulate collagen production. The Williams Rejuva Center makes these creams available to our patients. We have found that, in the past, many patients have not been properly instructed on the use of these medicated creams. Our highly trained Cosmetic Nurse Specialists are here to teach you how to apply these creams to obtain their maximum benefits. Dr. Edwin Williams feels that most patients benefit from tretinoin, and has formulated this ingredient into products with a creamier, less irritating base. These products stimulate collagen, lighten brown spots, and are to be used in conjunction with the cleansers and moisturizers that are also available at our office, or may already be part of your daily skin care routine.
Medical facial peels are also proven to stimulate collagen production which helps tighten the skin and smooth out lines. The surface layer of old skin peels off and a new layer of skin is revealed.
Then medicated creams and miosturizers are able to penetrate the new cells more effectively. These peels are also effective for pigmentation irregularites and help to even out skin tone. These require a 3 day recovery period or longer depending on the strength of the peel.
Candela lite touch laser treatments also stimulate collagen and are effective in the treatment of rosacea and spider veins (nose veins). The Pulse Dye and Smooth Beam Lasers were scientifically proven to stimulate the production of collagen in a study conducted by Dr. Edwin Williams, the findings of his study were published in the Facial Plastic Surgery Archives magazine in 2001. These laser treatments will effect the color, texture, and tone of your skin, giving you a brighter more youthful look.
The Williams Rejuva Center’s 6-month Skin Rejuvenation program incorporates treatments that stimulate collagen, improve hyper pigmentation problems (brown spots / age spots), and erase redness or spider veins. It improves skin texture, tone, and color. This program offers two medical level (TCA) peels, four Candela light touch laser treatments, medicated creams, and a basic skin care regime to maintain your beautiful results. The Williams Rejuva Center also offers two additional programs to continue maintaining results: The Next Step, and the Smooth Beam package. The Next Step includes three 10% TCA peels, while the Smooth Beam Package includes four full face treatments with the Candela Smooth Beam Laser. These programs will help you continue improving the healthy look of your skin.
