SSCD is proud to announce the expansion of our service offerings for your family! It has been our privilege to care for your children - and now we are looking to offer something special for our parents. We are pleased to share that we are now offering non-surgical, natural esthetic services for adults. This expansion of our offerings has been driven by feedback from our families - you've shared with us that you have deep trust with us in the care we are offering to your children and are interested in what more we can do for our parents. Our Natural Esthetic services are designed to offer parents solutions that improve your appearance while giving you a natural, refreshed look.

Why Us?

We understand that you have several options to choose from when selecting cosmetic services. Here are some thought as to why we hope you will trust us with your care...

  • Services administered by a highly-qualified ER Physician : We are thrilled to announce that Henry J. Grazioso, MD is joining our staff! Below you will find more information on Dr. Grazioso's background. Dr. Grazioso is an Emergency Room physician with extensive experience in cosmetic facial repair and delicate injection techniques. Unlike other organizations, we are pleased to have a highly qualified MD providing this service to our patients. As you know, SSCD has always embraced the highest standards and quality available, and Dr. Henry Grazioso is exactly that.

  • Highly sterile environment : SSCD has always prided itself on being a highly sterile environment leveraging the most sophisticated sterilization technology and procedures available in the industry. You are accustomed to seeing this in the care we offer to your children and we believe that this service demands nothing less than that. Other cosmetic service providers may look to treat patients in a salon type of environment - our Natural Esthetic services demand that we honor our commitment to your family for the cleanliness, sterility, and lead edge technology that you've always known from SSCD.

  • Convenience : While you are here with your children for their dental care needs, we encourage you to consider making great use of your time here! Located in the same facility as SSCD, we are happy to schedule you for some BOTOX treatment or teeth whitening services while your child is simultaneously being treated! And we promise that we'll keep that secret just between us if you decide to maximize your time during your children(s)' visits.

  • Trust : It is our honor and privilege to treat your children - we have worked hard to earn the trust of your family. We oftentimes hear from Moms and Dads that they wish that they could receive care from our office as well. We are flattered at the trust we share with our families - and we hope that you know we take that very seriously. You know we offer the best care possible for your children - and we hope you know that we will offer nothing but the best care for you Moms and Dads as well.

Natural Esthetic Service Offerings

We are pleased to offer the following services through our Natural Esthetic Offerings:

  • Zoom Teeth Whitening : Teeth whitening lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look. At SSCD we are pleased to offer in-office Philips Zoom professional whitening to both patients (aged 17+) and parents of patients who desire a brighter, whiter smile.

  • Cosmetic Xeomin/Botox Treatments : For adults looking for a refreshed, natural enhancement to their face, you may want to explore Xeomin/Botox treatments. Injection treatments using either Xeomin or Botox, are designed to relax certain muscles in the face to progressively eliminate wrinkles and restore a more youthful, natural look to the face. SSCD is pleased to offer cosmetic treatments using either Xeomin or Botox focusing on the forehead, eyes, and/or lips. We are happy to offer a consultation to give you an idea as to what solution might be best for you.

Please contact our office at (781) 383 0003 and ask to speak to Kaitlyn or Jen to learn more.

Xeomin/Botox Injections

Before we proceed with your Xeomin/Botox injections, there are a few items for you to consider. When you call in to schedule your first appointment with us, we will book you for a consultation appointment. At this appointment, Dr. Henry Grazioso will review your history, offer you treatment recommendations, and move forward with the injections with your agreement. Below, please find links that we would like to offer you for review before and after your injections:

Pre-Treatment Instructions 

In an ideal situation, it is prudent to follow some simple guidelines before treatment that can make all the difference between a fair result and a great result, by reducing some possible side effects associated with the injections. We realize this is not always possible; however, minimizing these risks is always desirable.

  • Patient must be in good health with no active skin infections in the areas to be treated

  • Patient should not be needle phobic

  • Avoid alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment Alcohol may thin the blood which will increase the risk of bruising.

  • Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications ideally, for a period of two (2) weeks before treatment. Medications and supplements such as Aspirin, Vitamin E, Ginkgo Biloba, St. John’s Wort, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, Vioxx, and other NSAIDS are all blood thinning and can increase the risk of bruising/swelling after injections.

  • Schedule your Xeomin / Botox appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which may be occurring, i.e., wedding, vacation, etc. etc. It is not desirable to have a very special event occurring and be bruised from an injection which could have been avoided.

Post-Treatment Instructions 

The guidelines to follow post treatment have been followed for years, and are still employed today to prevent the possible side effect of ptosis (drooping of the eyelids). These measures should minimize the possibility of ptosis.

  • No straining, heavy lifting, vigorous exercise for 3-4 hours following treatment. It is now known that it takes the toxin approximately 2 hours to bind itself to the nerve to start its work and because we do not want to increase circulation to that area to wash away the Xeomin or Botox from where it was injected.

  • Avoid manipulation of the area for 3-4 hours following treatment. (For the same reasons listed above.) This includes not doing a facial, peel, or microdermabrasion after treatment with Xeomin or Botox.

  • Facial exercises in the injected areas are recommended for 1-hour following treatment. This is to stimulate the binding of the toxin only to the localized area.

  • It can take 2 -10 days to take full effect. A complimentary follow-up visit will be booked for two weeks post treatment to review results in person with the Doctor.

  • Makeup may be applied before leaving the office.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above recommendations.
