January Product Spotlight: Dr. Paul Loves...

Posted by Dr. Patrick Proffer on September 26, 2017

A founding partner at Proffer Surgical Associates, Dr. Paul Proffer specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery as well as nonsurgical procedures to rejuvenate the eyelids, brows, and face. In addition to being a skilled surgeon and medical professional, Dr. Paul is the proud father of two children, Sarah and Ryan. He enjoys colonial American history, fly fishing, serving on Amarillo College’s Board of Regents, and coaching his children’s athletic teams.

Below are the products he suggests to his patients:


Severe crow's feet around the eyes and frown lines around the mouth and on the forehead tend to age the face beyond the physical years. One way to treat these marks of age is with Botox. This injectable medicine helps diminish the look of crow's feet and frown lines, giving the face a softer, smoother appearance. The total effects are seen within 48 hours of the injection and those results can last up to four months. If you want to turn back the hands of time, Botox is an effective option.


As people age, they tend to lose volume in the cheek area of the face. This loss of volume can make the face appear older than the person’s biological age. Juvederm's Voluma is the first FDA-approved injectable gel that adds volume that is so essential for a youthful look. Properly applied, this gel can transform the face within minutes of injection. And that effect can last for up to two years. Give your face an instant transformation with Voluma.

Elta MD Moisturizer

Wintertime and age tend to bring on drier skin. Dealing with red, irritated, flaky skin can be frustrating and uncomfortable. To combat dry skin, Elta MD has developed a revolutionary moisturizer. It deeply absorbs into the skin, bringing instant, and long-lasting, relief to even the driest skin. It melts into the skin upon contact and can last up to 12 hours. It helps to alleviate other skin conditions caused by renal disease, diabetes, and certain medications.
