Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as we age, the amount of HA in our skin is drastically reduced. The lack of HA causes skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds - like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth. Using a dermal filler is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds. We now have an arsenal of hyaluronic acid fillers to choose from depending on the area to be treated and the desired longevity of the product.
PDO threads are the latest addition to the anti-aging arsenal. They can deliver natural results without invasive surgery. These unique absorbable threads are designed to approximate and fixate sagging tissues. The thread is made from a complex sugar polydioxanone or PDO - a safe suture material that has been used in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgeries for over 30 years. Treatments involve minimal pain and minimal downtime, and the results can be seen immediately, so you can look and feel your best in no time.
KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that is used in adults to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called, “double chin.” The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Most patients will require 2-3 treatments for optimal results.

Erbium laser resurfacing is a procedure that uses advanced laser technology to remove the outer layers of skin, revealing new, refreshed skin cells below. This can be used to help smooth the texture of the skin and create an even skin tone. In addition to removing the outer layers of skin, erbium laser resurfacing also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which give skin youthful fullness. This procedure is similar to procedures like chemical peels or dermabrasion used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hypo or hyperpigmentation, and scarring. Erbium lasers allow for a range of treatment depths to address a wide variety of cosmetic concerns. A combination or sequence of laser treatments may be used to deliver the desired results over the course of several visits.

IPL Photo Rejuvenation is a completely safe, comfortable, non-invasive procedure that uses intense pulses of light to penetrate deep into the skin. These light pulses (like a camera flash) cause collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis (the top layer of skin) to constrict. The light waves are passed through either hemoglobin (red blood cells) or melanin (pigmented cells) in the skin breaking down the cells, which are then reabsorbed into the body, reducing discoloration. In addition to evening out the complexion, the heat directed into the inner layers of skin also stimulates the production of more collagen, which is an effective way to improve skin’s texture and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
This treatment helps to improve many skin irregularities, including:
Uneven skin tone
Broken blood vessels
Minor scars – like chickenpox or acne scarring
Rosacea (effective in improving symptoms for some patients)

Microneedling rapidly creates a pattern of micro channels which significantly increase the production of collagen and elastin to leave the skin smoother, fresher, and more uniform. Micro channels also create micro injuries which causes the body to send blood and growth factors to the area resulting in glowing, healthy skin.
Exosome treatments are based on the most cutting edge scientific biotech breakthrough for skin rejuvenation and regeneration. Exosomes are responsible for cell to cell communication and for facilitating the exchange of RNA and other important proteins between cells (e.g. fibroblasts, keratinocytes, immune cells, etc.), in addition to transferring numerous growth factors and cytokines and genetic materials they have shown signs of tissue repair and improving skin cells.
Benefits of Exosome therapy combined with microneedling:
Noticeably reduces the appearance of age related pigment and pore size
Visibly makes skin appear firmer and more youthful
Visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Hydrates and nourishes skin
Promotes a more radiant and even toned complexion
BOTOX® is one of the most exciting advances for the treatment of wrinkles, lines, and the aging face. BOTOX® is a highly purified protein which has the ability to very precisely relax the muscles to which it is applied. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows. This relaxation generally lasts for 3-4 months, and then the treated muscles gradually return to their original condition. BOTOX® does not affect the nerves responsible for sensation, so there is no numbness in the treated areas. This is done in a way to not alter your natural expression and features.
BOTOX® has been used for cosmetic purposes since 2002. It is the first botulinum toxin to be approved by the FDA to temporarily treat moderate to severe glabellar lines between the brows. It is typically used to smooth frown lines, crow's feet, and the horizontal lines across the forehead. It can also be used in other areas of the face or body for various reasons.
With real, noticeable results, no surgery and no recovery time, there are many reasons why over 11.8 million BOTOX® procedures have been performed since 2002. If you would like to smooth out your fine lines and wrinkles call us and find out if Botox® is right for you.
