Botox® Cosmetic
Botox® Cosmetic provides a quick and effective remedy for the lines and wrinkles that age, stress, worry and environmental factors bring about. These dynamic facial expression wrinkles are caused by the contraction of the underlying facial muscles that are contracted every time you laugh, smile or frown. The lines can cause an angry, tired or sad appearance. Even though you may have earned every “worry line”, you dont have to show them anymore! These expression and furrow lines can be significantly reduced with Botox® Cosmetic.

Botox® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, physician administered treatment that temporally relaxes moderate to severe wrinkles, such as the forehead “worry lines”, the smile lines, “crow’s feet”, or the glabella “frown lines”. Go ahead, smile, laugh, frown, and stop worrying about wrinkles!

Relax, stop worrying about those wrinkles. Dysport is the newest FDA approved botulinum toxin type A, similar to Botox® Cosmetic, that treats moderate to severe facial wrinkles. Dysport is a fast and effective treatment to reduce the signs of stress, aging, and environmental factors.

Dysport™ is an in-office, physician administered treatment that temporally inhibits the contraction of the underlying muscles that cause wrinkles and gives you a smoother facial appearance.

Restylane® & Perlane®
Restylane® & Perlane® are popular cosmetic, hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that add fullness to the skin to restore a more youthful appearance. Facial lines, wrinkles and folds form over time by the gradual breakdown of the collagen and elastin in the skin. Restylane® & Perlane® act by filling the volume lost by the aging process.

Restylane® & Perlane® are an effective non-surgical solution to restore fullness to the skin, enhance thin lips or improve scars. Results are immediate and offer you a more youthful look.

Juvederm® is a popular hyaluronic acid dermal filler used to correct moderate to severe wrinkles that have occurred from the aging process. It is also used to enhance the lips, fill in lip lines and correct scars. This safe, effective, non-surgical, in-office procedure restores fullness to the skin that is lost over time. Results are immediate, for a more youthful look.

Radiesse® is a calcium hydroxylapatite molecule that acts by stimulating your body to produce your own natural collagen. As the skin ages, our natural collagen breaks down, volume is lost and wrinkles result.

With Radiesse® filler, your natural collagen production is stimulated which increases facial volume, smoothes out the wrinkles and gives the skin a more youthful appearance. Results can last up to 18 months for some patients.

Sculptra® Aesthetic
Sculptra® Aesthetic is the first injectable material that gives you results over time by slowly replacing the collagen that has been lost by the aging process. It is made from poly-L-lactic acid, which is a bio-compatible synthetic material that has been used by physicians for years. The poly-L-lactic acid stimulates collagen production in the skin.

As we age, our skin looses collagen and volume which creates wrinkles and folds. Sculptra® Aesthetic works by correcting shallow to deep wrinkles and folds by stimulating collagen production, which provides a more youthful appearance that can last up to two years.

DiamondTome™ Microdermabrasion

Diamondtome™ Microdermabrasion is a technique for removing the topmost layer of the skin, leaving it supple and vibrant.  The wand gently exfoliates the skin with natural diamond chips, while at the same time vacuuming the dead skin cells away.  This leaves the skin smooth and promotes growth of healthy new skin cells.

Microdermabrasion is a wonderful alternative to laser and chemical peels. This treatment is non-invasive and requires no downtime.  Your skin will have a radiant glow.  A series of treatments can treat a variety of skin conditions including sun damage, age spots, fine lines, reduction of acne scars, hyperpigmentation, oily skin and rejuvenation of healthy skin.
