Neuromodulators (Botox® & Dysport®)
Neuromodulators, such as Botox® and Dysport®, are injectables that help temporarily relax the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. The most common areas are frown lines (commonly known as 11’s), forehead lines, and crow's feet, which is the area surrounding the outside of the eye. Other common medical uses of Neuromodulators are for excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis) and migraine headaches. Off label uses include platysmal bands (neck bands), masseters (jaw pain/grinding of the teeth), perioral area for gummy smiles and wrinkles of the chin. Results usually take 3-7 days with the full result in 2 weeks, and last approximately 3 months.
The dermal fillers we use are comprised of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring sugar-based substance found in the skin. As we age, our ability to produce HA decreases and fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging become more apparent. Dermal fillers are used to replace natural fat and volume loss associated with the aging process. Common areas include cheeks, nasolabial folds, tear troughs (under eyes), perioral lines (wrinkles surrounding the lips), lips, chin and hands. Results can vary from 6-24 months depending on the filler used.
Lip augmentation with dermal fillers is a very common non-surgical aesthetic treatment. It is a medical procedure requiring artistry and precision due to the lips’ cosmetically sensitive nature and intricate anatomy. Lip augmentation is a very customized treatment depending on patient goals and existing lip anatomy. Note for all customers with previous lip augmentation, if there are lumps or need for correction, this must first be dissolved 1 to 2 weeks prior to lip augmentation.
Bye-bye double chin. Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin, known as submental fullness. The number of treatments vary from patient to patient and results are permanent.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is an FDA-approved collagen stimulator/injectable designed to gradually and subtly stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production. The number of treatments vary depending on structure and facial volume lost due to aging and results can last more than 2 years.
PRP Hair Restoration
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments utilize platelets from the body to restore hair loss and hair thinning stimulating new hair growth. Since the platelets come from your own blood, there is absolutely no possibility of infection or other side effects. The number of treatments vary from patient to patient.
Esthetic PRP (Face, Neck, Decollete, Hands)
Along with the benefit of using your own tissue, therefore eliminating allergies there is the added intrigue of mobilizing your own stem cells. PRP has been shown to have overall rejuvenating effects on the skin: improving skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, increasing volume via the increased production of collagen and elastin, and by diminishing and improving the appearance of scars. Other benefits: minimal down time, safe with minimal risk, short recovery time, natural looking results, no general anesthesia is required.
PRP Facelift has all the benefits of the Esthetic PRP, but also uses HA fillers (e.g. Restylane®, Juvederm®, or similar) to add temporary volume. While the PRP adds growth and healing factors that stimulate the skin to look younger, improve blood flow, and stimulate the fat below the skin to naturally grow and expand, HA filler is strategically injected to create volume.
MIC B-12 Injections
Vitamin B-12 helps maintain good health and has been shown to be beneficial in helping to reduce stress, fatigue, improve memory and cardiovascular health, and maintain a healthy body weight. It can also assist the body in converting proteins, fats, and carbohydrates into energy and is necessary for healthy skin and eyes. MIC B-12 injections are better absorbed by the body since they are administered inter-muscularly.
