He places a high emphasis on patient safety, comfort and ongoing well-being. His goal and that of his team is to produce the best quality surgery, experience and follow-up for each patient.
Laser Liposuction is the latest method for removing fat utilizing laser technology. The technique involves the use of a laser to rapidly dissolve the fat and tighten the surrounding skin almost anywhere in the body. The procedure is done in an office setting and does not require the use of a general anesthetic.
The Tumescent Technique uses large volumes of a dilute solution of lidocaine, a local anesthetic, in combination with the vasoconstrictive drug epinephrine, which temporarily shrink capillaries.Local anesthesia used in the Tumescent Technique for liposuction is so effective that patients no longer need intravenous sedatives, narcotic analgesics, or general anesthesia. Over the years, numerous patients who previously had liposuction with general anesthesia have had second treatments with the Tumescent Technique. Virtually every one of these patients has found the Tumescent Technique to be less painful, to provide better results and to result in more rapid healing and recovery.
There are many injection–based skin treatments available today, but Radiesse is quickly becoming the procedure of choice for those wanting to lessen the signs of aging in the facial area. Performed during a 15–minute procedure in our offices and using only a mild, local anesthetic, Radiesse's benefits are many. It is non–toxic, non–allergenic and biocompatible – Radiesse gel contains compounds naturally found in our bodies.
Until recently, hair removal was a painful and time-consuming procedure. Photopneumatic Therapy (PPx) has changed all this. PPx Hair Removal is the most advanced therapy for safe, pain-free and permanent hair reduction on all skin and hair types.
PPx treatments are painless treatments that are clinically proven effective and safe treatments for age spots or brown blotchy pigmentation on the skin, broken capillaries or broken blood vessels that cause "redness" and "flushing", and elangiectasias or fine facial veins
We're pleased to offer Restylane treatments, an exciting option for those who are looking for skin rejuvenation.
Restylane gel injections boost your natural supply of hyaluronic acid, which will smooth out signs of aging and brings out the best of your features.
