This safe and natural filler contains hyaluronic acid, an essential element
of the skin’s structure that diminishes with age. By replacing the
hyaluronic acid that is crucial to younger looking skin, Restylane safely
restores fullness and volume while correcting both minor and severe wrinkles
and folds. In addition to helping erase facial lines, Restylane can also
add fullness to thinning lips and cheeks.
Restylane offers a completely natural appearance and feel, making it the
leading dermal filler on the market today. Treatment takes less than 30
minutes and results are immediate. Equally important, the chemically stabilized
hyaluronic acid found in Restylane can remain in the dermis for six months
or more, significantly longer than collagen-based dermal fillers.
Once injected, Restylane integrates into the dermis and binds with water.
It does nothing to hinder the normal metabolism and movement of nutrients
and oxygen, and over time, Restylane is gradually reabsorbed without a
trace. Because it is not permanent, Restylane gives you the option of
adjusting or changing treatments as your needs change.
Interested in younger looking skin but uncertain about dermal fillers?
Prevelle Silk is a hyaluronic acid filler that reduces the appearance
of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, but is designed to work for a
shorter period of time than many other fillers. Patients see immediate
results, yet because of the lower solution concentration, there is no
downtime or side effects following the procedure. Often called a "lunch
hour" treatment because of its convenience, Prevelle Silk also contains
lidocaine-a common local anesthetic-for increased comfort during the procedure.
Prevelle Silk is ideal for patients who are trying dermal fillers for the
first time or who want to improve their appearance in time for a special
event or party. It is primarily used on laugh lines, lips and superficial
wrinkles, with results typically lasting 60-90 days.
One of today’s most popular cosmetic procedures, Botox Cosmetic can
take years off your facial appearance without inconvenience or downtime.
This FDA-approved, non-surgical injection successfully reduces or eliminates
frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet and thick bands in the neck-and
is equally effective for both men and women.
The purified protein toxin within Botox interrupts specific nerve impulses,
temporarily preventing unwanted muscle activity that causes wrinkles.
The strategic relaxation of certain facial muscles gives the skin a smoother,
more refreshed appearance. One 10-minute treatment can create a noticeable
improvement in facial lines and folds, with results lasting up to four
months or longer.
Fat Transfer: natural facial rejuvenation
Fat transfer is a safe, effective and natural way to smooth out wrinkles
and shed years from your appearance. Also known as autologous fat transplantation,
fat grafting, or micro-lipo injection, this technique uses fat cells from
another part of your body to successfully smooth facial lines, reduce
acne scars or plump up facial features.
A small amount of fat is gently removed from your abdomen, thighs or buttocks,
purified, and then injected into problem areas in the face. The most common
areas for treatment are frown lines, laugh lines and crow’s feet.
Fat transfer can also provide definition to cheeks, chin, lower eyes and
lips-without incisions or any lost time from daily activities.
Using your own fat cells, this non-surgical technique offers a solution
for deep facial wrinkles, creases and furrows, sunken cheeks, skin depressions
and some types of scars-without risk of an allergic reaction. While some
portion of the fat is reabsorbed, results tend to last significantly longer
than other forms of fillers and for some patients create results that
IPL Photo Rejuvenation
A breakthrough in age-defying skin care, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photo
Rejuvenation is a gentle, non-invasive treatment with often dramatic results.
Photo Rejuvenation allows you to immediately improve the appearance, tone
and texture of your skin with no recovery downtime.
IPL technology gently delivers precise amounts of light energy deep into
the skin to stimulate the production of collagen. As new collagen forms,
many common effects of aging-including wrinkles and skin discolorations-are
significantly reduced or erased. This safe, non-invasive procedure successfully
treats a wide range of skin problems, including the redness caused by
acne, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and facial veins, as well as the fine
lines and wrinkles caused by aging or sun damage. The result is younger,
smoother and healthier looking skin.
Photo Rejuvenation, also called Photo Facial, can treat the face, neck,
chest and hands. The procedure typically takes 15-20 minutes with results
becoming more pronounced after each treatment. Outstanding long-term results
can often be achieved with a series of four to six treatments.
First used in ancient times to achieve smoother, more beautiful skin, chemical
peels remain a popular facial rejuvenation technique. Chemical peels can
reduce the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, acne scarring, and uneven
pigmentation while restoring a youthfulness and vitality to the skin.
During this procedure, a chemical solution is used to remove the damaged
outer layer of the skin, promoting the growth of healthy, younger-looking
skin. The type and concentration of the chemical solution used controls
the depth of the peel: superficial, medium or deep peel. The specific
solution used will depend on the characteristics of your skin and the
results you want to achieve.
While a deep chemical peel produces the most dramatic, longest-lasting
results, the treatment takes longer than other peels (one to two hours)
and requires the most healing time. Lighter chemical peels are ideal for
people who want the benefits of a facial peel but do not want to spend
Sclerotherapy: eliminating varicose and spider veins
Unsightly veins bother millions of men and women: in fact, almost half
of the adult female population is affected by this common cosmetic, and
sometimes painful, problem. Sclerotherapy offers a safe, non-surgical solution.
This popular treatment involves injecting a solution that collapses the
veins, causing them to fade away and be reabsorbed by the body. The procedure
requires no anesthesia and typically takes less than 30 minutes. Often,
two or more sessions are needed. The result is younger-looking, healthier legs.
Laser hair removal
Imagine never having to shave, wax or pluck again. Laser hair removal offers
more permanent hair removal, safely and effectively, as it gently diminishes
hair growth. And because numerous hair follicles are treated simultaneously,
even the largest areas of the body can be treated quickly and successfully.
Since hair follicles grow and re-grow in cycles-and only growing follicles
are affected by laser removal-several treatments are necessary to achieve
the best result. Call us and schedule a free consultation to talk about
customizing a treatment plan for your skin tone, hair type and lifestyle.
