Expertise with Injectables

Dr. Dominic Castellano uses the palette of cosmetic injectables with an impeccable attention to detail, improving each patient's appearance with a customized treatment plan. In the hands of a skilled injector, products such as BOTOX®, JUVÉDERM®, RADIESSE®, and Restylane® can minimize wrinkles and create attractive, natural-looking contours.

Your Injectable Options


Glycolic acid, lactic acid, and fruit acids are alphahydroxy acids. Alphahydroxy acids act as exfoliants by removing dead skin cells, stimulating new cell growth and the production of collagen and elastin. The result is improved skin texture, more even coloring, and a more youthful appearance. An alphahydroxy peel does many things to improve the skin, including:

  • Diminished fine lines
  • Reduced wrinkles
  • Reduced hyperpigmentation
  • Improved acne and acne scarring
  • Reduced sun damage
  • Improved rough, dry skin
  • Improved enlarged pores

Chemical Peel Procedure

Alphahydroxy peels can be used on a weekly or monthly basis. They work well as a single skin care treatment or as a monthly maintenance treatment after laser skin resurfacing. All patients receive treatment in our Tampa state-of-the-art fully accredited facility.


You may experience mild redness and irritation immediately after the peel. You will need to keep your skin moisturized and protected from the sun. Our aesthetician will advise you on the best skin care regimen to take care of your skin and maintain the results of your procedure.
