Botox® Therapy

Thanks to a new use for an approved drug, dynamic lines can be dramatically softened. The procedure known as cosmetic denervation uses Botox® injections to improve the appearance of forehead worry lines, frown lines, eye laugh lines, and crow’s feet or other dynamic wrinkles. Botox® blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion. It can also be used to reduce sweating in the palms or underarms. Our office is designated as a National Botox® Training Center.


This procedure is one in which you can benefit with fewer crow’s feet, better, more fuller looking lips, and by simply helping to remove some of the wrinkles around your face. It uses hyaluronic acid to help in keeping a natural look. It lasts about nine months for some effects, six months for your lips. Juvederm is injected into your face to improve the look for the area. It is not painful and offers no recovery time.


The best solution for erasing lines and folds is to replace lost structure with immediate volume. RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler works immediately so the results are instant. Once injected, RADIESSE Volumizing Filler adds the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging. What makes RADIESSE truly unique is the ability of the product to act as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow.1 The production of natural collagen continues for several months, which extends beyond the initial effect of RADIESSE Volumizing Filler.1 Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which means more value from each treatment and long-lasting results.

Belotero Balance®

A dermal filler as unique as you are. Specially designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct facial contours. By adapting to the individuality of your skin, it softens lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for smooth and natural results that are uniquely you. BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above the lip line). BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler is made of a material called hyaluronic acid or HA. HA naturally exists as a component of your skin. By binding to water, it fills in wrinkles and folds, allowing immediate and smooth correction.


SCULPTRA™ is the latest breakthrough in newly FDA-approved injectible fillers. This non-invasive treatment corrects the deepest of lines and wrinkles with long-term results using a biodegradable material called "poly-L-lactic acid". Studies have shown that SCULPTRA's potency can even correct lipaoatrophy, a condition that causes facial fat loss.

Chemical Peels

Jessners & Glycolic Peels A peel is a process of applying a special high concentration of glycolic acid (GA) solution to your skin for a short period of time, ~4-8 minutes, then rinsing the solution off. In addition to peeling away the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal fresher, healthier skin underneath, GA peels also increase the collagen production under your skin which gives your skin more elasticity for a younger look. Glycolic peels can improve skin texture and tone, diminish fine lines and wrinkles; reduce brown spots and freckles, and reduce acne blemishes. A series of peels, used over weeks or months, along with a daily skin care regimen can also reduce pre-cancerous lesions and the risk of skin cancer. A New Refinity 70% Glycolic peel uses a patented anti-irritant to get an even stronger result with no discomfort, redness or flaking.

Laser Hair Removal

The GentleLASE, a revolutionary long pulse high energy Alexandrite laser system, emits a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin, to the hair follicle, where it is absorbed. The laser energy is transformed into heat, which can disable the follicle leaving the surrounding skin unchanged, while removing the unwanted hair. Until now, the only permanent way to remove hair has been electrolysis (which can be painful, time consuming and is limited to small cosmetic areas). Laser hair removal safely removes unwanted body hair without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin. This procedure is safe for delicate areas such as the upper lip, bikini area, and underarms at the same time allowing you to cover larger areas such as the legs, full back or chest for men.

Laser Resurfacing

This state-of-the-art Whisper MicroPeel Laser Resurfacing procedure uses Erbium laser to target the damaged and devitalized outer layers of skin tissue to completely rejuvenate your complexion. Within minutes you can rapidly smooth away acne scarring, large pores, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles. MicroPeel laser resurfacing produces dramatic and immediate results. Micropeel laser resurfacing can treat dry patchy skin, oily skin, sun damaged skin, hyperpigmentation, superficial skin spots, acne prone skin, blackheads, and whiteheads.


When we are young our skin is smooth and elastic with a healthy glow. As we age, our ability to maintain that smoothness and elasticity diminishes, resulting in skin that becomes drier, thinner and less able to replenish itself. Our body's natural collagen and hyaluronic acid levels decrease and our skin becomes looser. This leads to our skin wrinkling and appearing older than it should.

Micro Dermabrasion

Micro-dermabrasion is a non-invasive, non-surgical, process that is preformed with a jet of fine crystals, which are vacuumed across the damaged area to remove the outer layer of skin; revealing younger, tighter, and more radiant skin underneath. Common treatment conditions include: dull, congested, acne blemished, aging skin, acne scars, some hypertrophic scars, some stretch marks, pigmentation (brown spots), seborrhea and minor skin conditions. Micro-dermabrasion is not painful and has little or no recovery time. For best results we recommend a series of 6 treatments given every 2-4 weeks. Periodic maintenance treatments are also suggested to maintain your healthier skin completion.


Sclerotherapy is the injection of varicose and spider veins with a sclerosing agent, such as saline or sotradecol, for the purpose of eradicating those vessels. This is accomplished because the sclerosing solution is irritating to the lining of the bloods vessel, causing it to seal up and become invisible. Several treatment sessions are required to adequately treat either varicose or spider veins. Some veins will respond more quickly than others, resulting in a varying amount of treatments.
