Improving the Skin Effortlessly
Smooth and perfect skin is what everyone wants, but few of us possess. At any age infections, unwanted hair, skin problems, and scaring can detract from the appearance of the skin. Our staff of caring professionals can discuss a number of options with you that improve the appearance of your skin with effort. These options are more effective and less frustrating than home remedies, or other measures you might have used in the past.
Skin Rejuvenation and Resurfacing
Irregularities such as acne scars, wrinkles, visible blood vessels, loss of skin tone, and cellulite on the skin can be addressed through skin rejuvenation and resurfacing.
There are several types of injections that can smooth and fill the skin surface. Botox, Dysport, Juverderm, Sculptra, Restylane, and Radiesse all have unique benefits capable of not only firming, and filling the skin, but also promoting the development of collagen.
Juvederm Ultra Plus
Reducing the Signs of Aging with Radiesse
This is a non-surgical option for those who want a refreshed, younger look. For those who concerned about lines or wrinkles the choice is no longer limited to a lengthy and painful surgery. Instead, with a few injections from a very fine needle into the areas where it is needed will make a difference in the overall appearance of the skin.
The Difference is Radiesse
Radiesse stimulates the body, and causes a boost in the production of collagen. This naturally tightens the skin, giving it a firm, youthful appearance with stretching or harming skin tone. Because this is a more natural product it is absorbed by the body, but your own naturally produced collagen takes its place. This makes it less necessary to have repeated procedures so often. While other fillers will last only for about 6 months, you can expect your results from Radiesse to last a year or more.
Amazing Results with Restylane
Surgery should always remain the last option for any type of treatment. For anyone hoping to find a safe, and gentle method of getting rid of laugh lines around your nose, mouth and eyes Restylane is a treatment you should consider. With this effective and safe filler you can have the amazing, natural, youthful look you want, without the drawbacks of having surgery. This dermal filler is also used to fill and contour the lips to a fullness that’s natural and balanced with your other features.
What’s Different about this Dermal Filler
Designed with safety in mind Restylane is a dermal filler gel made from hyaluronic acid. Used in over 15 million treatments around the world, it has helped those seeking a fresher appearance easily without the risks associated with other methods.
As an injectable, this dermal filler is clear and liquid. Once injected it becomes a gel that’s fully biocompatible with the human body. While this filler will break down over time it is simply absorbed by the cells surrounding it. The smooth, refreshed look Restylane offers will remain for six months or longer. Because it is safe the treatment can be repeated as often as you want with few risks of side effects.
How Restylane Works
This dermal filler is made from hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in the human body. The production of hyaluronic acid diminishes with age, leaving the skin with less elasticity and fullness. Along with immediately giving skin a fuller look, this filler boosts the levels of this important acid, which is the reason the effects last longer, and the skin has a natural look.
To find out if this option is the right one for you schedule an appointment, and let our trained staff explain how you can have skin that looks and feels younger.
A sudden dramatic change in the appearance of the face invites speculation. No one wants to be considered the person who had “work done”. Many hope to find a procedure that will erase lines and problem areas from the face quickly, and without a new look being so easily noticed. We have the perfect method for you in a simple procedure using Sculptra.
Rather than having surgery, this is a newer facial filler that is used at intervals during a 12 week period to fill in the deepest lines in the face without leaving a noticeable trace other than youthful, smooth skin.
How Is This Natural Effect Achieved?
Our clients are surprised at the ease of using Sculptra. Developed for use in the nasolabial fold it fills the lines between the nose, the outer corner of the lips, and the deeper wrinkles around the eyes.
Like other fillers for facial lines Sculptra is able to help replace the loss of natural collagen. The loss of facial collagen is the reason behind the deep lines that develop around the mouth, the nose, and the eyes. During the course of treatment with this filler it gradually lifts the skin up into the folds creating a much smoother and more naturally youthful look.
What You Will See
Over the course of 12 weeks you will have 3 or 4 treatments scheduled 3 weeks apart. During these three months, the deep lines on your face will gradually become less pronounced. The skin around the injection sites is supported by the filler, and this fresher appearance can last up to 25 months or more.
Many people are interested in having a fresh look occur slowly, with the appearance of a natural decrease in smile lines, and the deep creases of the face. Rather than the more obvious dramatic change that occurs suddenly those around you will notice only how healthy and firm your skin appears.
Please let us know if you have any questions about Sculptra and our highly trained staff will give you the information you need to make this positive change toward a more youthful, healthy look.
Getting Fast Results with Botox Injections
Botox is a safe way to reduce lines and wrinkles on the face without surgery. This procedure has long been the standard among cosmetic treatments for refreshing the appearance of the face. Unlike a face lift, which has a long recovery time due to swelling, Botox is relatively painless and the results are fast. With a quick recovery time it’s possible to have injections in advance of an important event with no worries about swelling or discoloration. There’s little aftercare involved after treatment, and while the results are temporary it’s possible to safely repeat the procedure every few months.
Botox gives the skin a fresher, youthful appearance only possible with smooth skin. Along with other services we offer, we have professional staff who will take the time to explain this procedure with you, and consult with you to discover if this is the best treatment option.
We offer many different types of treatment to rejuvenate your appearance, including new treatments you might not be aware of, along with familiar procedures you might have considered in the past including facelifts. Our staff can evaluate your needs and help you decide on the safest option that offers the best results for you.
Who Should Consider Botox Injects?
If people constantly ask if you are tired, angry or sad, what they are really seeing is the effect of sagging skin and lines on your face. Botox offers you back smooth, firmer looking skin, and a refreshed appearance. It can also help those with certain types of migraine headaches. The botulinum toxin in the injections has a positive effect, relieving migraine triggered by the muscles on the forehead contracting.
Meeting with a Medical Professional
If you want to find out more about how Botox can offer you smoother, firmer skin we are pleased to provide the answers and treatment options that are best for you.
Seeing a Difference with Dysport
Many patients have never heard of Dysport, but this injectable is much like Botox. Both are neurotoxins, derived from botulinum toxin type A, and have been used widely as a cosmetic treatment. And both products can target the muscles just under the skin’s surface. These products reduce the look of facial lines and wrinkles by keeping the muscles from contracting, but there’s a big difference with Dysport as it gives you a more natural effect.
Dysport fans out, and is able to control the response of more muscle tissue. The result is you will need fewer injections per procedure, and enjoy a longer lasting effect. Within a few days after treatment you will see results and this can last for up to months.
This new procedure is used to treat the wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, and around the mouth.
Options for Attractive, Shapely Lips
Shapely, fuller lips are attractive, and achieving this look is possible through lip injections. Because of its popularity, this procedure has seen changes and innovations. Lip injections are now safer, and more effective than ever. We can provide the exact look you want for your lips and mouth.
The treatments we offer have very few side effects that were once common in the industry. Our professional staff is knowledgeable and experienced in lip augmentation.
We understand you have unique needs, and we can recommend the safest and most effective way to having the lip shape and fullness you want. We recommend the use of hyaluronic acid as the best form of lip injections. This is a more natural product that’s clear and biocompatible. This product has fewer side effects than other harsher treatments such as pain and swelling.
The needles used for this procedure are thin and small. These smaller needles make it easy for the doctor to carefully sculpt the lips. This enables the doctor to control just how plump or full the lips will be according to what you hope to achieve.
Seeing the Doctor
At a consultation you and the doctor will discuss what you want. Whether it’s a dramatic change or a small one he can discuss the volume and shape of your mouth and how this argumentation can still see your facial features remaining in perfect balance.
Injections can take place in the office, and you will immediately notice the results. As this is a biocompatible product, it’s possible to have this procedure every six-months to retain the look you will love.
Improving You Complexion — Clear Skin with IPL Photo Facial Treatments
When you have problem skin you try anything. You give up favorite foods, use painful treatments that sting or burn your skin, and as a last ditch effort you try to hide the blemishes, scars or wrinkles under makeup. IPL or intense Pulsed Light as it is known is an effective treatment that will help you finally see your skin free of flaws.
You can seek a consultation with our professional staff about IPL Photo Facial Treatment if you have problems such as:
- Sun Spots
- Brown Spots
- Broken Capillaries
- Age Spots
- Stretch marks
- Spider veins
- Large visible pores
In this procedure one of our professional staff will apply light gently to the skin surface in precise pulses. This procedure is usually pain-free, although you might see some redness for one to two hours after a procedure. In most cases the entire face is treated. It’s also possible to treat the neck, hands, and chest. After a full series of treatments, there’s a noticeable positive effect on the skin as this not only treats the damaged skin on the surface, it also delivers thermal energy to deeper tissue which is beneficial to skin health.
Our professional staff is ready to answer questions about this procedure, and to consult with you about seeing your skin looking clearer and healthier.
Laser Hair Removal
Fast and Effective Hair Removal with Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Laser hair removal or laser hair reduction is a procedure that can quickly and effectively remove unwanted body hair or facial hair. A non-invasive treatment this is far more comfortable than many home remedies or waxing. It also leaves the skin smoother and silkier than other treatments. Large areas can be used on large areas of skin as this is a gentle method of hair removal.
When to Consider Laser Hair Removal
- Dark or coarse facial hair
- Tired of waxing, shaving, bleaching or electrolysis
- Need a cost-effective way to remove hair permanently
- Want a gentle way to remove hair
We can help you discover this effective and comfortable method of having smooth, flawless skin.
FA Solution for Facial Hair – Dermaplaning
Millions of women have facial hair. Most will try various home remedies to remove peach fuzz, or stubborn strands of dark hair from the face. These methods are often uncomfortable and usually don’t offer the results you want. The choice of waxing does remove hair, but this is painful, and can leave obvious marks on the skin. Light fine hairs on the cheeks and chin aren’t easily removed by other treatments such as lasers.
We offer a very different option with dermaplaning. This simple treatment is performed by our professional staff, and there are no risks of complications or side effects, making this a great option for removing even fine hair.
The Dermaplaning Difference
Dermaplaning and dermabrasion are very different. In fact, this treatment is markedly different from any remedy or treatment you might have tried in the past. Removing just the very surface of the skin, dermaplaning removes all the fine vellus hair. The skin after the treatment is smooth and soft without a hint of unwanted hair. Far from being harmful this short procedure also removes dead skin cells much the same as an exfoliant giving the face the look and appearance only achieved with healthy skin.
What You Need to Know About Dermaplaning
This treatment will remove the fine, and the hard to remove heavier and darker hairs from the face, but it’s important to note this isn’t a permanent facial removal treatment. Unlike other treatments you have tried, however, the hair will not grow back thicker, darker, or coarser as it might with other remedies.
Dermaplaning also removes the impurities and fine hairs found on the surface of the skin. Doctors often recommend this treatment for a number of skin issues before considering more intensive procedures such as lasers or dermabrasion. The reason to consider it first is Dermaplaning has fewer risks of side effects, and is even safe for pregnant women.
If you aren’t looking forward to the next attempt to remove unwanted facial hair with a home remedy or waxing, then our trained and professional staff can help with you with any questions you have regarding Dermaplaning.
