The best volumizing filler for areas around the mouth would be Restylane or Juvaderm. They both work well for this. I don't think one is necessarily better than the other. Consult with a skilled derma...Details

Procedures & Services

Laser Liposuction

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.

Tumescent Liposuction

Liposuction totally by local anesthesia. The word tumescent means swollen and firm. 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.

BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments can improve:

•Worry lines in forehead
•Lines between the eyebrows
•Smile lines
•Laugh lines, from nose to mouth
•Crow’s feet

Radiesse

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:

•Non–toxic
•Non–allergenic
•Biocompatible – Radiesse gel contains compounds naturally found in our bodies
•Up to two years between treatments

After the treatment, you can go back to all of your normal activities – we recommend only that you avoid direct sunlight on the treated areas. You’ll have minimal swelling for a day, and some minor discomfort for which we can give you a prescription.

If you’re looking for an alternative to BOTOX or other filler treatments, come in and talk to us about if Radiesse is right for you.

Non-Invasive Body Contouring

This is a non invasive way to tighten skin and remove fat . The Radio Wave energy is focused to zap or eliminate a percentage of fat cell. A second pulse of energy is directed to heat the skin to tighten it . The net effect is body contouring that can remove smaller bulges and tighten and rejuvenate the skin.

BodyFX is a ground-breaking new non-invasive treatment that offers anyone who has considered liposuction a means of getting rid of cellulite and fat. BodyFX is the first and only technology that uses focused radio-frequency energy to target and eliminate fat cells while smoothing out the skin surface and improving skin tone and texture by targeting through skin to the dermal layer to stimulate collagen.

Our technicians, who are skilled in the BodyFX technique of contouring and shaping, will use a handheld device that combines radio frequency energy, deep tissue heating, and suction to target and eliminate fat cells and improve the appearance of cellulite. A thermal monitor is attached to the BodyFX instrument to ensure the right temperature is achieved for ideal exposure and results. The process reduces fat cells and leaves the treated area with a more youthful firmer appearance.

BodyFX is most commonly used on areas where fat is likely to settle such as: the abdomen, the upper arms, the buttocks, the thighs, the upper back near the bra line, the back of the flanks, the inner knees, and the hips.

Fractional Skin Resurfacing

Fractora is a fractional skin reappearing via an array of microneedles that deliver Radiofrequency energy though the skin. The Radiofrequency energy fractionally ablates or removes aged skin all the way through the dermis not just the artificial layers, to rejuvenate the skin. The process cause significant collagen regeneration skin remodeling.

Fractora is a new cosmetic procedure aimed at improving skin conditions including acne, acne scars, sun damage, drooping skin, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation issues through use of radio frequency technology. As we age, our skin produces less collagen, which makes it easier to see wrinkles and fine lines and harder for the skin to maintain its elasticity.

Years of sun exposure, genetics or a less than healthy lifestyle can wreak havoc on the skin over time and the result is people looking older than they feel. Fractora uses a matrix of micro pins combined with heat to penetrate through the deep levels of the skin to stimulate new collagen growth quickly and painlessly. As a slightly invasive treatment, Fractora can be used on both men and women regardless of their skin color or tone and many patients return for multiple treatments to achieve optimal results without the risk of more invasive procedures.

A hand-held tool equipped with a medium of micro pins is set at the proper heat and frequency and moved across the skin gently. A tiny micro puncture is made into the skin, which stimulates collagen and healing to recover overall skin structure and appearance.

Fractora Firm applies the same methodology to treat areas of the body rather than the face. This process can help firm up areas that are no longer firm and create even texture on the body as a whole.

Potorejuvenation / IPL

This technology treat age spots and sun damage with Intense Pulsed Light IPL . The laser like light target dark area of uneven pigment and small superficial vessel on the skin that are the result of aging or damage . The effect improves the color and glow of the skin.

PRP and Vampire Facial

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. Platelets are natural sources of growth factors and rejuvenation. The growth factor from platelets include Platelet Derived Growth Factor [PDGF], Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor [VEGF], Epidermal Growth Factor [EGF], These growth factors recruit and transform fibroblasts and epidermal cells. The are also begin a regenerative healing process that has significantly anti aging effect.

The PRP can be combined with a filler , for which is called Vampire facelift. or with micro needling Vampire facial or injected by itself. Adding the PRP to Fractora accelerates the healing and makes the on 4 -5 time more powerful collagen.

Restylane

We’re pleased to offer Restylane treatments, an exciting option for those who are looking for skin rejuvenation. Restylane was developed in Sweden, and since 1996 has helped millions of patients in 70 countries have younger–looking skin.

The science behind Restylane is hyaluronic acid, which is present in youthful skin but recedes and changes in structure as we age. 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.

Restylane gel treatments can diminish the appearance of:

•Worry lines in forehead
•Glabellar lines between the eyebrows
•Smile lines (adjacent to the mouth)
•Nasolabial folds (laugh lines, from nose to mouth)
•Perorbital lines (crow’s feet)

Skin Tightening

We offer Forma skin tightening . This treats sagging skin do to aging , weight loss or sun damage. The technology painlessly delivers Radiofrequency energy to heat the collagen leading to collagen contraction and the stimulation of new collagen formation. This is a simple non invasive in office procedure that takes about a 45 minutes.
