Types of Non-Surgical Procedures

Below are the non-surgical procedures that we provide at our Richmond office.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® is a popular injectable product that smooths lines and wrinkles caused by muscle activity. These include frown lines, crow’s feet, and lipstick lines.

Injectable / Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are injectables for the face and neck that add volume where it has been lost due to aging. They can smooth wrinkles and deep folds, as well as improve sagging jowls and hollowed cheeks or temples. The ones we use most frequently are Juvéderm® and Juvéderm® Voluma, but we also offer Vollure.

Skin Care Treatments

We offer a number of skin care treatments, including facials, medical grade skin care products, and chemicals peels of varying depths. We can evaluate your skin and make recommendations for you to improve many common issues, such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines, acne, acne scars, and sun damage.

Lip Augmentation

If you wish you had fuller, sexier lips, this is the procedure for you. We provide Lip Augmentation using Juvéderm® or Volbella injections, which add natural fullness that lasts about a year.

Dermaplaning and Facials

Besides facials to improve the health and appearance of your skin, we provide Dermaplaning. This procedure removes the top layer of skin to treat fine lines, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and scars.

Medical Grade Skin Care Lines

Medical-grade, prescription cosmetics are not only great to keep your skin healthy, but they assist in healing after a surgical or non-surgical procedure in Richmond, such as laser skin resurfacing. Dr. Montante prescribes two of the most advanced cosmetic lines currently available – ZO by Zein Obagi and Skinmedica. Both companies provide a full range of skin care products, including sun protection tailored to your skin’s particular issues.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser Skin Resurfacing is a very popular treatment that smooths fine lines and wrinkles. Many patients have this procedure after a Face Lift in order to target the remaining superficial lines on the surface of the skin. The laser also increases your skin’s elasticity, stimulates natural collagen production, and can reduce the appearance of scars. It is effective on the face, neck, chest, and hands. Dr. Montante is one of few plastic surgeons in the Richmond area who personally uses the RF CO2 technology.

Skin Cancer Treatment

Dr. Montante is experienced with the most advanced treatments for skin cancer. Whatever technique is used, the goal is to remove all of the cancer with the least possible scarring. Mohs surgery is one method that allows the surgeon to remove a small number of skin cells at a time until all of the cancer cells are gone. This leaves as much healthy skin intact as possible.

Laser Scar and Age Spot Removal

Laser technology has made great strides in recent years. It can be used to correct many skin problems, including spider veins on the face or legs, depressed scars (including acne scars), and dark age spots. The result is smoother skin with more even skin tone.


Microblading is a permanent makeup technique to enhance sparse eyebrows so that they frame your eyes better. Pigment is added to fill in spaces, reshape, and darken the eyebrows. Some people require more than one treatment for optimal results.


Microneedling, sometimes called skin needling, is a skin rejuvenation treatment that stimulates your body to produce new skin cells and collagen. It involves penetrating the skin with tiny needles that cause your body to go into healing mode. As a result, a host of problems can be improved through this non-surgical procedure including skin texture and tone, fine lines, enlarged pores, and scars.
