Botox®

Everyone requires an individual consultation for the use of Botox®. A variety of areas of the face are targeted with Botox® injections to reduce the definition of wrinkles. Typically the injections will have a lasting effect of approximately 3-5 months. That timeline varies from person to person.

Laser Resurfacing

Sculptra

While other injections are used to temporarily fill wrinkles and folds in the face, Sculptra Aesthetic is used to replace lost collagen. Requiring 3-4 sessions of injections, sculptra works by stimulating the existing collagen to rebuild over a period of time. This treatment requires a consultation by a doctor. Not all patients are ideal candidates.

Juvederm®

With effects lasting approximately one year, Juvederm® is a filler injection used to fill in fine lines and facial hollows as well as enhance the lips and cheeks.

Voluma®

A filler injection intended for deeper placement to enhance areas such as the cheekbones.

Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure performed on patients with the condition dermatochalasis. Dermatochalasis is heavy or excess eyelid skin; it can occur in the upper or lower lids. For Upper lids: Depending on the severity of the Dermatochalasis, a Blepharoplasty is performed to repair droopy eyelids through the removal of excess skin, fat, and muscle. For Lower lids: Similar to the upper lids, the lower lid bags will be adjusted through a removal of excess skin, fat, and muscle. In addition, individual consultation will determine the need for cheek implants, fat transposition, or eyelid tightening, with each surgery catering to the individual’s needs. *these procedures require the use of anesthesia.

Latisse®

Used to help stimulate the growth of eyelashes in order to make them thicker, longer, and darker.

Cheek Implants

Depending on the genetic makeup of your face, fillers may not be the best option to help improve the cheekbone. Implants in the cheek vary from case to case, but always require the use of a surgical setting and anesthesia.

Brow Lift

A surgical procedure used to raise the forehead in order to correct heavy, sagging brows. This helps tocorrect issues with the forehead, eyebrows, and upper eyelids.
