A great deal of the procedures we offer are medically necessary to treat disease. Many of the procedures simply make you look better. Either way, the combination of effective technology and highly-trained, experienced people is the basis for great results. Three Rivers Dermatology is the location in Northeast Indiana for some of the newest, advanced treatments and technology.
BOTOX & Dysport
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are non-surgical cosmetic treatments for moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people ages 18 to 65. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® works by reducing the contractions of the muscles which cause those persistent frown lines, forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet developed over time.*
Juvéderm® XC is a smooth gel filler that medical professionals use to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you will get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.*
Juvéderm® XC is manufactured using HYLACROSS technology, creating a smooth-consistency gel. It is infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment. With Juvéderm® XC you get the smooth results you expect, with the improved comfort you want.*
Everyone will notice, but no one will know.
Chemical peels can clear pores, release dead skin cells, thoroughly cleaning while revealing younger, healthier skin. Inflamed areas can heal faster, and skin damage is reduced. Our most effective peels can be used on the shoulders, back and neck, as well as the face.*
Sclerotherapy is the injection of a medicine into a vein, causing the vein to collapse and disappear. The body then replaces this damaged vessel with imperceptible tissue that causes no harm to circulation. Where surgery was once the only answer, now sclerotherapy produces natural, beautiful results.*
The sclerosing solution disrupts the small cells which line the inner walls of blood vessels. A large number of veins within a given area may improve with a single injection.*
Fading of blood vessels continues for 1 to 6 weeks. It is important to recognize that sclerotherapy does not prevent new spider veins and recurrences can occur over 1-5 years.*
DOT Therapy (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) is a fresh new way to transform skin and enhance its overall appearance. DOT Therapy can reverse the appearance of aged or sun-damaged skin, smooth wrinkles and fine lines and minimize acne scars. Because DOT Therapy delivers the desired outcome with minimal downtime, it is rapidly replacing traditional laser skin resurfacing as the treatment of choice for mild to moderate signs of photo damage.*

Restylane® is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness in facial skin to correct wrinkles and folds. Restylane® is composed of non-animal, stabilized hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the human body. It is also hydrophilic or “water-loving.” As hyaluronic acid gradually degrades, each molecule binds to more water. Over time, the same volume of water can be maintained with less hyaluronic acid. This ability of hyaluronic acid to bind to water is what helps provide long-lasting results. While Restylane® is administered as an injection, it is not the same as, nor a replacement for Botox Cosmetic. Botox® Cosmetic is a medicine that blocks nerve transmission, relaxing the underlying muscles. Restylane®, on the other hand, is a filler that smoothes facial wrinkles and folds. Many patients have been very pleased after receiving treatment with both products. Restylane® is ideal for some problems that, in the past, could only be treated with collagen injections.*
Restylane® is also an alternative to collagen for creating full, soft lips. Considering the gentle nature of Restylane, it is easy to understand why it has gained so much popularity so quickly.*
Laser Hair Removal/Reduction
From upper lip to bikini line, legs, underarms and back. Laser light does what electrolysis and depilatories cannot — damage growing hair follicles so the hair will not return. The procedure is performed without the need for an anesthetic. With each treatment there is a noticeable decrease in hair growth. The effect is permanent, leaving only satisfaction.
Unlike other treatments, laser light can completely disrupt a hair, root and all. As the hair absorbs a quick flash of laser light, a nanosecond of heat destroys the body’s ability to grow hair in that spot. The treatment creates few or no side effects and just a few sessions can stop unwanted hair growth for good.*
Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser technology has made great strides in eliminating tattoos, so this may be a good time to seriously consider tattoo removal. Everything from small, single colored tattoos to large, multicolored ones can be significantly faded or completely removed using currently available lasers.*
