Botox® is used for the treatment of wrinkles caused by facial expressions. Muscle facial expressions can cause frown lines, horizontal forehead lines and crow’s feet. Botox cosmetic treatment is for mild to severe wrinkles. frownLines Botox is injected into the muscles that contribute to the wrinkles and works by blocking the nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity and leads to a reduction of the wrinkles. Treatment can last from 2 to 6 months depending on the location and how often the expressions are being made. Pricing is based per number of units needed for an individual person.

Dermaplaning is an exfoliative technique that superficially “shaves” the surface of skin. This safe and effective method exfoliates the surface of
skin and removes fine hairs that tend to trap dirt and oil.

Dysport is FDA approved (abobotulinumtoxinA) for treatment of moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. Dysport is injected into muscles to temporarily block nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity and leads to a reduction of the wrinkles caused by muscle contraction. Majority of patients see improvement in just 2-3 days after treatment and may last up to four months.

An extraction treatment is the process of clearing a clogged or compacted pore by manual or mechanical means. Comedones (blackheads) are the most common reason for extraction. Pustules and pimples can also be extracted, depending on their size and depth. This often requires the use of a lancet to gently lift and remove the very top layer of the pustule to allow the contents to be easily extracted.

The HydraFacialT treatment is the newest advance in non-laser skin resurfacing. HydraFacial is the only hydradermabrasion procedure that
combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously, resulting in clearer, more beautiful skin with no
discomfort or downtime. The treatment is soothing, moisturizing, non-invasive and non-irritating.

The HydraFacialT treatment improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, congested and enlarged pores, oily or acne-prone skin, hyperpigmentation and brown spots.

Microneedling helps with the reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture and softer, younger-looking skin
with fewer signs of aging. Microneedling can help improve the appearance of hyper-pigmentation as well as uneven skin tone and acne scars.

Automated micro-needling (also known as collagen induction therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine that can help treat the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, stretch marks and the skin’s overall appearance. During this procedure, the Eclipse MicroPen® is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. Automated micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels which can be used with topical gels, creams and serums to help improve the appearance of the skin.

Eclipse MicroPen® can be used on all parts of the body; face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. Some patients only require a single treatment, once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars, your skin care provider may recommend 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.

The Restylane family of products includes Restylane®, Restylane-L®, Restylane® Silk, Perlane®, and Perlane-L®. Restylane, Restylane-L, Perlane, and Perlane-L can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane, Restylane-L and Restylane Silk may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years. Restylane Silk can be used to treat lip lines in patients over 21 years.

Sculptra Aesthetic® is non-surgical dermal filler made of poly-L-lactic acid. It works to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds, as it replaces lost collagen, which can help provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance. Sculptra Aesthetic works to replace lost collagen in a series of treatments administered by a Sculptra Aesthetic trained provider. On average, three injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months. The number of injection sessions and the number of injections per session vary from person to person.
