Cosmetic Injectables

Botox®, Xeomin® and  Dysport®.  Botulinum toxin relaxes facial muscles so that they do not contract, resulting in reduced appearance of unwanted facial wrinkles.  It can help to smooth frown lines, Crow’s feet, forehead lines and neck lines. 

Juvederm®, Restalyne®, Belotero®, Radiesse® and Sculptra® are dermal fillers that are injected under the skin to restore volume and fullness to the face, smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.  They can help to plump thin lips, soften facial creases, improve the appearance of depressed scars and enhance shallow contours of the face. 

Sclerotherapy is the treatment of spider veins – small purple, blue or red veins most commonly found on the legs.  A sterile salt solution is injected into the blood vessels of the legs with a tiny needle, sealing the blood vessels so that it gradually fades in appearance.  Multiple treatments may be required to achieve significant results. 

Skin Resurfacing

Fractionated Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Laser is the gold standard in laser skin resurfacing and improves appearance by affecting only a fraction of your skin at a time with thousands of tiny microscopic laser spots.  It produces dramatic results in skin appearance for sun damage, deep wrinkles, acne scars and surgical scars.  Usually, only one treatment is necessary, however significant downtime of 10-14 days is expected. 

MicroPen® microneedling involves tiny, controlled micro-injuries to the skin to produce collagen and elastin.  The skin’s repair process results in the appearance of softer wrinkles, reduced pore size, even skin tone and improved texture from scarring, acne scarring and stretch marks.  This treatment requires minimal downtime and is ideal for individuals with an active lifestyle.  Optimal results are obtained after multiple treatments. 

Skin Rejuvenation

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) uses specific wavelengths of light to target destruction of undesirable skin tissue to improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin and freckles.  IPL also removes age spots and redness caused by broken capillaries and rosacea.  This treatment is popular for patients with active lifestyles as the procedure requires no downtime.  Optimal results may require multiple treatments. 

V-Beam Laser delivers an intense, but gentle burst of light energy onto a selected area of the skin to treat vascular lesions like broken capillaries, rosacea, red acne scars, surgical burn scars, angiomas and Port wine birth marks.  No downtime is involved and multiple treatment sessions may be required. 

Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal involves a laser that delivers a highly concentrated light that pulses for a fraction of a second, heating up hair follicles to inhibit future hair growth.  Laser hair removal is effective for most parts of the body and requires multiple treatments to provide significant hair reduction. 

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels improve the tone, texture and clarity of skin.  It employs a chemical solution to remove the damaged, outermost layer of the skin.  It can help to improve acne or acne scars, age spots, freckles, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, scars, rough skin and scaly patches and sun-damaged skin.  We offer the following peels: The Perfect Peel®, Mini Melanage®, Quelage®, Illuminize®, Vitalize®, and Rejuvenize®.
