Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are examples of neurotoxin or Botulinum toxin A that are injected into muscles and relax the muscles. From a cosmetic standpoint, the result is either to smooth facial lines caused by the muscle creasing the skin (11’s, forehead, crows feet), decrease muscle bulk (masseters or mentalis), or to decrease the strength of muscles that cause pulling of facial structures or skin (gummy smile or neckbands). Botox has even been studied for depression with results that exceeded the expectations of researchers.
Botox has been studied and is now being used to treat many medical conditions. The list includes but is not limited to: migraines; overactive bladder; blepharospasm (eye twitching); hyperhidrosis (excess sweating); muscle contractures (torticollis, cerebral palsy; stroke).
Dermal fillers are used to restore volume in the face that has been lost due to the effects of aging and sometimes weight loss. As we age the skin becomes thinner, drier, and less elastic, collagen diminishes. The layer of fat between the skin and underlying structures is less. Bone resorption occurs, especially in menopausal and postmenopausal women, without the structural support of bone there are noticeable changes in the other layers of overlying skin and fat. Dermal fillers, mostly those made of hyaluronic acid, are used to restore volume and reinflate areas that are deficient.
Microneedling (RF and Traditional)
Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a procedure where a pen with very small needles is used to create tiny holes in the top layers of the skin. Treatment is customized depending on the area treated or desired results. Microneedling can be used to improve skin texture and tone, fine lines, wrinkles, scarring including acne scarring, stretch marks, and even skin laxity. The procedure creates a wound response that brings in collagen and elastin fibers which improve the integrity of the underlying skin.

EMSELLA is a great option for anyone, of any age who desires a solution for urinary incontinence and improvement in their quality of life. Due to factors such as the body’s normal aging, childbirth, or menopause, the pelvic floor muscles decondition and insufficiently support the pelvic organs. These factors directly correlate with urinary incontinence. A typical treatment takes about 30 minutes and you will need about 6 sessions, scheduled twice a week. You will experience tingling and pelvic floor muscles’ contractions during the procedure. You may resume daily activities immediately after the treatment.
Over 200 million people worldwide are affected by incontinence. Are you one of them?

Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair. This laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. Although laser hair removal effectively delays hair growth for long periods, it usually doesn’t result in permanent hair removal. Multiple laser hair removal treatments are needed for initial hair removal (6-12 treatments every 4-6 weeks.) Maintenance treatments might be needed as well. Laser hair removal can be successfully used on all skin types. We ask that patients shave the treated area prior to their first laser appointment. No bleaching, waxing, or plucking for a minimum of 4 weeks prior to treatment. Sun exposure must be avoided for a week post-treatment.
Many women are bothered by the aging and appearance of their hands whether it be a loss of volume of the soft tissues (visible veins or tendons), the skin becomes crepey, or has sun damage. The back of the hands will often show a woman’s age before their face or even neck. The fractional CO2 laser can be used to rejuvenate and tighten the skin, bring in collagen and improve pigmentation. Radiesse and Restylane Lift are dermal fillers that can be injected to restore the volume that has been lost. Skincare products are used to improve the texture and tone of the skin. Sunscreen should be used to prevent sun damage.

Dermaplaning is a simple and safe treatment for exfoliating the top layer of the skin. Also, ridding the skin of the fine vellus hair “peach fuzz” and trapped dirt and oils. Perfect for pairing with other treatments to help provide deeper product penetration in the skin. Dermaplaning promotes smoother skin, reduces the appearance of acne scars, and diminishes fine lines and wrinkles. This process provides instant results and no downtime.
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical and painless treatment that benefits acne, acne scarring, pigmentation, dull-tired skin, stretch marks, fine lines, and wrinkles. The process is completed by a machine that jets thousands of tiny crystals across the skin removing the outer layer of the skin cells. The machine then vacuums the skin removing the dead skin cells. This action then stimulates the blood flow production of collagen and elastin. Which reveals younger and healthier skin.
The Stimulator Peel, also known as the ‘event peel’ requires no skin preparation and can be performed prior to any event with no downtime, or it can be boosted with retinol for added benefits. No recovery times.
