Today you have more choices than ever for enhancing the appearance of your skin. Some skin treatments can be completed within minutes, and results are seen over several appointments. Others offer dramatic results and may involve anesthesia and post-operative care. We will work closely with you to determine the most appropriate treatments for your individual needs and lifestyle.
Here is a brief overview of some of the treatments we offer.
Botulinum injections are used to decrease lines caused by facial expressions, including frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, and glabella lines. Botulinum is carefully injected into facial muscles to relax the muscles that cause these lines. Dramatic improvement can be seen from several hours to one week following the injections, with results typically lasting three to six months.
Collagen Replacement Therapy
This treatment smoothes facial lines that are caused by sun damage and the effects of aging. The treatments supplement the natural collagen under the skin by placing collagen implants into the skin. A maintenance schedule of treatments is intended to provide an immediate, visible difference to the appearance of your skin and its contours.
Juvéderm® Ultra XC & Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC
As you age, your skin changes. It reduces production of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). Over time, the loss of HA in your skin results in facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm injectable gel replaces the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial lines and wrinkles. Juvederm is indicated for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. It is FDA approved to last up to one year.
Juvéderm™ Voluma XC
With age, your cheeks can lose volume and skin may begin to sag. Augmentation of the cheeks can rejuvenate the appearance of cheekbones to give a more youthful appearance and even lift the skin to fight sagging that can occur over time. Juvéderm® Voluma XC is the first FDA-approved filler for the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in the mid-face. It lifts and fills the contours of the face with natural-looking results lasting up to 2 years.
Radiesse wrinkle filler is a safe and convenient way to immediately correct facial wrinkles. Radiesse is composed of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. When injected, Radiesse stimulates your body to produce new collagen, gives you a natural and more youthful look immediately, and is long lasting. Radiesse has been shown to last up to a year or more.
Restylane-L® & Perlane-L®
Restylane-L and Perlane-L are both composed of hyaluronic acid (HA). They work by adding volume and fullness to the skin, thereby smoothing wrinkles. Perlane has bigger gel particles than Restylane, and therefore is designed for deeper injection. Typically, these products last about six months.
Introducing Sculptra® Aesthetic (injectable poly-L-lactic acid). Not an overnight miracle. Long lasting. Not a quick fix. The first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time. Replacing lost collagen. Giving you a more natural-looking appearance, without giving you away. A full treatment of Sculptra Aesthetic, an average of 3 injection sessions over a few months, can last up to 2 years. Individual results and treatment sessions may vary. So you have more time to see how sensational subtle can be. Welcome to the new age of anti-age.
Xeomin® is a botulinum injection, similar to Botox®, for treating facial expression lines. The effects of Xeomin® occur within one week, and the results last from three to six months, making it comparable to Botox®. The difference is Xeomin® contains no additives. just botulinum toxin type A, making it less likely to cause any allergic reactions and resistance because there are fewer ingredients.
