Used together with fillers such as Cosmoderm, Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse, results are even more dramatic!
Found in the dermal layer of the skin, this naturally occurring substance can be injected into fine and deep lines. Great for lip enhancement too!
Also found in the dermis, this form of hyaluronic acid is used for deeper lines and defects. The most common areas are nasolabial folds ( from the nose to the mouth), marionette lines (corners of the mouth) and frown lines.
Another form of hyaluronic acid, this new filler can be used for nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and lip enhancement.
Radiesse is the thickest of the fillers with duration over nine months, its calcium hydroxylapatite microspspheres form a scaffold thru which your own collagen grows. This is the ideal choice for facial contouring – at last, a non-surgical facelift!
Chemical peels are topically applied acids that create a uniform and controlled shedding of skin layers. Depending on the type and strength of acid, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and sun damage can be obliterated. » Learn more about Chemical Peels
The tried and true CO2 laser gives the deepest and longest lasting results. Wrinkles are truly obliterated and texture and tone are dramatically improved. Although done under general or local anesthesia with healing usually 7 to 10 days, results are worth it!
Microdermabrasion refers to the superficial sanding of the skin, which results in exfoliation of thickened epidermis and a softer, more even skin texture and tone. The use of microdermabrasion began in Europe in the 1980’s and involves the use of tiny particles blown against the surface of the skin and vacuumed away, removing the superficial layers of skin to expose the fresher, healthier skin below.
Micro-Needling is a procedure that makes tiny controlled punctures or channels in the skin with virtually no discomfort or down-time. These micro-wounds trigger the skin to produce new collagen and elastin resulting in an amazing improvement of wrinkles, stretch marks and acne scars! With topical application of hyaluronic acid, special growth factor extracts or PRP, even more improvement is seen.
