Dermal Fillers

This spring, show your wrinkles the door. Dermal fillers are a quick and effective way to reduce and eliminate stubborn wrinkles and revitalize your skin. These treatments are expertly injected into precise facial locations to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and to plump and volumize. Treatment takes minutes (often you can be in and out in under 30 minutes) and is long-lasting (some fillers last up to two years). We offer a variety of different fillers (including Juvederm, Juvederm Voluma, Belotero, Radiesse, and Restylane) to ensure the best possible results for every patient. Dr. Velargo and Dr. Hendrick will work with you to create a customized dermal filler treatment plan to target your problem areas.


Botox is the top cosmetic procedure year after year. In 2014, more than 6.6 million botulinum toxin treatments were performed. This procedure is popular for good reason: it works. Injections take just a few minutes and the natural-looking results appear over the next few days. The treatment temporarily halts nerve impulses that cause wrinkling for a more rested, rejuvenated look. If you’re looking for a quick way to turn back the clock, ask us about Botox.

Skin Resurfacing

If you want to “spring clean” your skin, try a skin resurfacing treatment. These treatments remove the top layers of skin to stimulate collagen production, even skin tone, and smooth away wrinkles. Many patients find that a skin resurfacing treatment can make the skin feel younger and more youthful. Here are a couple of your options:

  • Laser Skin Resurfacing: Laser skin resurfacing uses a high-powered laser to remove the top layers of skin cells. These treatments can be highly effective when used for the right reasons. If laser skin surfacing is the best option for your skin, we’ll work with you to determine which method will be most effective. Laser skin rejuvenation isn’t just for the face; we also use it for hand rejuvenation, on the neck and on the chest.
  • Chemical Peel: Chemical peels are another option for skin resurfacing. These treatments use a combination of chemical substances to slough off dead skin and encourage the body’s natural healing response. Dr. Velargo trained with one of the early innovators of deep chemical peels making him a highly qualified choice for your next peel.

Make this spring a beautiful one (and we’re not talking about flowers). Come see Dr. Velargo and Dr. Hendrick at the New Orleans Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery.
