As we age, we notice the signs of aging that can be hard to ignore – little wrinkles around the eyes or lips, darkening age spots, and folds become evident. Fortunately, it’s possible to soften the signs of aging – without undergoing an intensive surgical procedure. We offer a wide range of non-surgical services, including:
Wrinkle treatment with fillers can be used to fill the skin beneath wrinkles and folds that are present when the face is completely still – allowing the skin to have a much smoother, more natural and youthful appearance. Our wrinkle treatments with fillers include:
Sculptra®aesthetic, composed of poly-L-lactic acid (a natural component of skin), can be used to add volume to larger areas of the face, rather than smaller lines/folds, in order to replace lost collagen and cause new collagen production.
Radiesse®, composed of hydroxylapatite (a natural component of bone, but soft like other fillers), can be used to instantly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles/folds for natural, younger looking skin that lasts for over a year after the service.
Juvederm™, composed of hyaluronic acid (a natural component of skin), can be used to fill mild to moderate wrinkles/folds and augment the lips for immediate results that look and feel natural – lasting up to 1 year after the service.
Juvederm Voluma XC is the first and only FDA approved filler that instantly adds volume to the cheek area for those over the age of 21 looking to obtain a much more youthful and natural appearance.
Wrinkle treatment with muscle relaxers can be used to relax the muscles that actually cause the wrinkles, making “crows feet” near the eyes, horizontal forehead lines, and lines between the eyebrows much less visible. Our wrinkle treatments with muscle relaxers include:
Botox® can be used to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles for up to 4 months after the service. While it takes about a week to start working, the facial muscles will not be paralyzed and expression will return to normal as the medication takes action.
Dysport can be used to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles. Similar to Botox, however, it’s been reported to have a quicker onset, which means much quicker results. Dysport lasts up to 5 months and can be used in combination with dermal filler.
Xeomin, a prescription medication, can be used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles for up to 4 months after the service. Plus, it can be used in the same areas as Botox and combined with dermal filler.
We also offer Candela GentleLASE, a high intensity, long-pulse laser system that emits a beam of light deep into the skin tissue – delivering a controlled, safe amount of therapeutic heat while keeping the upper layers of the skin cool with a burst of cryogen, in order to treat skin conditions such as:
The number of sessions necessary depends on the condition treated, as well as the condition of your skin; however, hair removal can usually be accomplished in roughly 2 – 3 treatments. Many other conditions may clear up after the first treatment, but ultimately, the number of session depends on the severity of the condition.
We offer two great non-invasive treatments: SkinPen and Ultherapy.
SkinPen is a micro skin treatment that involves a microneedling device that creates a series of hundreds of vertical microscopic channels into the top layer of skin, also known as the dermis, in order to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen – allowing you to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to repair itself.
Ultherapy, on the other hand, is a non-invasive procedure that tightens and lifts the skin without surgery or downtime – allowing you to achieve a more youthful, glowing look with less fine lines and wrinkles from your brows to your chest. Essentially, the procedure delivers focused ultrasound energy to the foundational layer of skin typically addressed in a surgical facelift.
