Botox is an extremely dilute form of Botulinum toxin which, when injected into the muscle, weakens but does not paralyze them. Botox is safe and efficacious. It is the number one cosmetic procedure performed in the United States with over 5.6 million treatments performed annually. One ten-minute treatment – a few tiny injections – will relax the muscles that cause lines to form and keep them relaxed for up to four months
Botox and Dysport are equivalent forms of Botulinum type A toxin. Dysport is safe and efficacious and, like Botox, when injected into the muscle, weakens but does not paralyze them. One ten-minute treatment – a few tiny injections – will relax the muscles that cause lines to form and keep them relaxed for up to four months.
Juvederm and Juvederm XC
Juvederm (XC, Ultra Plus) is a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable gel used for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and volume loss at the nasolabial folds, lips, and around the mouth.
Voluma is the newest filler from the Allergan family. It is a smooth hyaluronic acid filler which can last up to 24 months but the average is around 18 months. Voluma is FDA approved for restoration of volume loss in the cheek and midface areas.
Thin or thinning lips can result in a mouth with less shape and volume. Aging can also cause fine lines to form around the mouth as well as at the corners, which can result in a downturned mouth.To restore the lips and mouth for a more youthful appearance, Volbella is designed to enhance the outline of the lips, minimize the fine lines around the mouth (perioral lines), and accentuate the “cupid’s bow” at the center of the top lip.
Restylane is FDA approved for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles. Restylane is an excellent choice for treatment of the nasolabial folds as well as, following a nerve block or local anesthesia, restoring fullness to the lips. Redness and swelling should be expected for two days after the procedure. Results last up to 6 months.
Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L, is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face. It is FDA-approved indicated to lift to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth the nasolabial folds or, more commonly known as the smile lines. Lyft can also be used to rejuvenate and add volume back to the hands.
Restylane Silk is a HA filler well suited for use in the tear troughs just beneath the eyes. Restylane Silk is a good choice for injection close to the surface making it a good choice for the thin and delicate skin around the eyes. It can also be used to fill and smooth the wrinkles known as smoker’s lines on the upper lip to fill and smooth out wrinkles.
While Sculptra and Radiesse are marketed as dermal fillers, they are actually biostimulates. Unlike HA filler, a biostimulate leads to permanent change by stimulating the body’s fibroblast cells to produce and deposit new collagen. Sculptra (poly-L-lactic acid) and Radiesse (polymethylmethacrylate) gradually fade over two to five years. Sculptra is FDA approved for restoration of facial fat loss and is well suited to replace volume in the hollow area under the cheek and/or at temples. These fillers are injected twice, eight weeks apart.
Mint PDO Threads
The thread lift is the perfect solution to address age related changes such as sagging skin and restore the face’s natural and youthful V-shape without surgery! It is a minimally invasive, safe, effective, and relatively painless procedure with very little downtime—especially when performed by an experience provider. PDO threads are most commonly used on the face and the neck, but, can also be used to lift skin on the body. They are durable but dissolvable and effects are long lasting as the threads stimulate your own skin to gradually produce more collage in the treated areas
Cool Slimming / CoolSculpting
Is an FDA-approved safe, effective and, noninvasive means to permanently breakdown and eliminate unwanted fat. It applies advanced cooling technology to a temperature of -11 to +5 °C to adipose (fat) tissue in order crystalize and rupture fat cells and stimulate cell death. This organized cell death, phenomenon known as apoptosis, stimulates a strong inflammatory response that work to gradually reduce fat by digesting the tissue. CoolSculpting is non-painful.
Selphyle (is our centrifuge) Collagen PIN (is our microneedle)
The Cutera Laser Genesis is a non-ablative 1064 Nd:YAG laser suitable for people of all colors including those with tanned skin. The laser stimulates collagen regrowth by heating on a deeper level than Photo Genesis/IPL. The heat penetrates deep into the dermis or second layer of the skin and stimulates the natural production of collagen
PHOTO GENESIS, INTENSE PULSE LIGHT (IPL)
Intense pulsed light (IPL) uses light energy to target certain colors in your skin can undo some of the visible damage caused by sun exposure -- called photoaging. It is an effective way to improve the color, texture, and reduce wrinkles without surgery. It is also used for complexion blending and brightening. IPL breaks down both melanin and hemoglobin, which are the pigments responsible for abnormal brown and red spots. Your body then gets rid of these unwanted cells as these broken-down pigments gradually rise to the surface and sluff off. IPL smoothers and evens your complexion with no downtime. We use the Cutera XEO IPL system. This state-of-the-art system erases superficial skin damage without disrupting the skin surface. We have also recently introduced the Limelight handpiece which is capable of three different programs: one to erase fine veins and generalized redness, another to eliminate brown spots, and a third that can tackle BOTH. IPL can treat nearly any area of the body safely, comfortably, and effectively.
TITIAN SKIN TIGHTENING
Titan is a non-surgical procedure aimed at turning back the clock by tightening loose and aging skin. The Titan emits light energy, which causes contraction of the tissue and stimulates growth of new collagen deposition and tighter skin. Skin tightening is not meant to replace surgical procedures such as face, eyelid, and neck lifts, but it is a good option for those not interested in surgery who understand results are noticeable but modest. Titan produces an immediate increase in skin tone making it ideal for areas starting to show laxity such as the cheeks and jowls.
The Pearl YSGG was the first FDA 2790 nm laser approved for the treatment of treats fine lines on the face and neck, uneven skin texture, and sun damage. It is the “one laser to choose” to renew your skin’s surface with quick, visible results and minimum social downtime. It offers an aggressive treatment option while limiting the lengthy recovery time and complication associate with ablative technologies. The Pearl uses pulses of light to remove the top layer (epidermis) of the skin at a depth less than the thickness of a human hair to create a natural protective dressing on the skin’s surface. This dressing then peels off after 3-4 days to reveal new, healthy, and vibrant skin. This thermal effect penetrates deep into the dermis and stimulates new collagen growth deep to further tightening and reduce wrinkles. This mechanism replaces the entire top sun-damaged layer of skin with new healthy skin by targeting water within the epidermis. This precise tuning provides the perfect balance between vaporization of the epidermis and the transfer of heat into the dermis. New collagen continues for 4 to 6 weeks post-treatment.
