Read About Our Cosmetic Procedures
Botox is an injectable treatment that helps to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles in the face. It works by blocking the signals sent by nerves to certain facial muscles, preventing them from contracting. With the muscles unable to contract, lines and wrinkles are smoothed, restoring a more youthful facial appearance. Results are noticeable within 3 to 7 days after treatment and typically last 3 to 4 months. Periodic retreatments are required to maintain the results.
A chemical peel is a procedure that involves the use of chemicals to remove layers of skin on your face, eliminating some different skin imperfections such as sun damage, uneven tone or texture, acne scars, age spots, and even fine lines and wrinkles. Chemical peels are specially formulated solutions that aid in the rapid regeneration of skin cells. This process helps to shed dead skin cells, remove imperfections, and increase your natural production of collagen and elastin. The results are smoother, younger looking skin.
Liposuction is a procedure performed to eliminate areas of unwanted fat on the body. It can be used on many different areas of the body, including areas of the face including the cheeks and neck. The procedure is designed to slim and contour problem areas, improving proportions and boosting your confidence. With a healthy diet and lifestyle, results can be permanent.
A facelift, also known as a Rhytidectomy, is a procedure that is performed to reduce or eliminate the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. One of the most popular cosmetic procedures available, with both women as well as with men, this procedure is designed to tighten the skin on your face, eliminating sagging skin, improving your facial contour, and taking years off of your appearance. There are a few types of facelifts available including full facelifts, mid-facelifts, lower facelifts, mini facelifts, and thread facelifts.
Hair and Skin Rejuvenation
Hair and skin rejuvenation both use platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, to achieve the desired results of each procedure. PRP is a natural substance created using your blood. A small sample of blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate out the plasma. The plasma is then spun a second time to concentrate platelets. PRP is then injected into the treatment areas using a multi-needle tool. The tool perforates the skin, creating injuries that trigger the body to send platelets. Platelets contain growth factors that help to aid in new tissue and collagen growth. The additional platelets from PRP aid in this process. PRP can help to aid in the regrowth of hair as well as new tissue and collagen for younger, smoother looking skin.
Chin and Cheek Implants
Chin and cheek implants, or facial implants, are silicone implants that are placed to provide you with more defined and balanced facial features. Chin implants help a small jaw look larger and provide it with more projection. They also help to give better balance between the chin, mid-face, and forehead. Cheek implants help to add volume back to the face following fat loss and increase the projection of your cheekbones. The result is more prominent cheeks and a small lift.
Dermal fillers are treatments designed to restore volume lost from your face, eliminating loose skin and wrinkles. Treatments help to provide you with a fuller, more youthful appearance. Fillers are an injectable treatment that plumps the treated areas of your face as they are injected. There are two types, natural and synthetic. Natural fillers are made from a naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid. HA binds moisture to restore a plump, hydrated appearance. Some types of natural fillers also help to restore collagen production. Synthetic fillers, sometimes called semi-permanent or permanent fillers, do not break down like natural fillers and results typically last longer.
