When you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments can not only prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements, they can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking younger and refreshed.

Juvéderm™ Injectable Gel
Touted as the "next generation" of facial fillers, Juvéderm™ injectable gels gently smooth wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose and restore a youthful volume to the face. Made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that works with collagen and elastin to provide volume and support to the skin, Juvéderm™ is especially effective on smile lines and "parentheses" (nasolabial folds) that run from the bottom of the nose to the sides of the mouth. Treatment takes only 15 minutes with immediate results and no downtime. Results typically last about 6-9 months.

Sculptra® is an injectable product that restores and corrects the signs of facial fat loss by replacing lost volume
Sculptra® is an injectable product that restores and corrects the signs of facial fat loss by replacing lost volume. Facial fat loss, or lipoatrophy, is the loss of fat beneath the skin, which can result in sunken cheeks, indentations, and hollow eyes. Sculptra provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness, improving the appearance of folds and sunken areas.
The results from Sculptra® are not immediate but they are long-lasting. In a clinical study, effects lasted for up to two years after the first treatment session in most patients. No skin testing is required.

With just one or two Radiesse® treatments, you can enjoy a beautiful, natural look that lasts.

Fat injection reduces wrinkles and creases and plumps up areas that have lost volume as a result of surgery, injury, aging or another cause. Transplanted fat that comes from the patient him- or herself does not carry a risk of allergic reaction or rejection. Other advantages include a short recovery time, long-lasting results and effectiveness on any skin type.

The natural consequences of aging on our skin include sun damage, freckles, age spots, acne scarring, enlarged pores, and redness caused by broken capillaries and rosacea. Photorejuvenation reduces these signs of aging using non-invasive, painless pulses of light. Treatments can also improve the appearance of birthmarks and uneven pigmentation and stimulate the production of collagen. There is no recovery time and low risk of complications. Multiple sessions of about 20 minutes each are performed every few weeks until the desired result has been achieved.

Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser light is absorbed by water or dark pigments in our body's tissues (such as melanin in the skin and
hemoglobin in the blood) and converted to heat. A variety of functional and
cosmetic skin problems can be treated with lasers. These lasers are often
specialized to handle a particular type of problem; there is no "cure-all" laser
capable of correcting all problems.
Lasers offer many advantages over traditional, mechanical technology, including "bloodless" surgery, reduced risk of infection, less scarring, high precision, limited injury, and faster procedures.
Laser treatments can reduce the appearance of sun damage, acne scars, stretch marks, sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, vascular lesions (spider veins and redness on the face) and uneven pigmentation.
Laser skin resurfacing, commonly called a laser peel, removes the outer, damaged layer of
skin to reveal a smoother, younger look. Laser resurfacing can reduce the
appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, uneven pigmentation and
superficial scarring, usually on the face. A carbon dioxide (CO2) laser beam of precisely focused light vaporizes the surface skin and reveals the undamaged layer beneath. Procedure time varies depending on the size and condition of the area being treated.
Laser skin resurfacing can be used to treat:
- Sun damage
- Crow's feet
- Brown spots
- Precancerous growths
- Chicken pox scars
- Superficial facial scars
