Wrinkles are perhaps the most visible (and maybe the most loathed) sign of aging and damaged skin. The fact is, over time our skin becomes thinner and less firm. Our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin, causing skin to lose volume, while increasing the likelihood of wrinkles and folds. These targeted treatments combat aging and environmental injury, and combined with effective skincare can help give back what time and the elements have taken away, restoring youthful vitality to your full face, neck and chin.
Laugh lines, smoker lines, marionette lines, lines around the mouth
An effective way to smooth wrinkles without surgery or long recovery periods, dermal fillers restore volume to your skin – restoring firmness, softening creases, and recontouring facial features. We use proven products such as Juvéderm®, Restylane® and Sculptra® to smooth brow furrows, restore volume under the eyes, soften nasolabial folds, rejuvenate hands, plump the lips and more. Treatments take about 30-90 minutes depending on the area addressed, and can cause mild-to-moderate swelling and bruising for three to seven days. Results are visible right away and can last for several months to several years.
Designed to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process, micro needling can help restore volume and firmness to wrinkled skin. Controlled micro-injuries trigger your immune system to disinfect wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue from the granulation cells that are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops. Treatments last from one hour to 90 minutes and are not painful (they feel like rubbing an electric toothbrush on your skin), though they do cause mild redness and itching that last from 24-48 hours. Three monthly treatments will yield peak results in about six months.
This is all about the actions you take every day to keep your skin healthy and vibrant. What’s unique about our approach to daily skincare is that it’s tailored not only to your needs, but also to your daily routines and individual goals. Effective skin care starts with medical-grade products that are grounded in science and proven by experience, and it continues with a customized skin care program we develop for you – one that gets results without forcing you to change the way you live. Plan on an hour for so for an in-depth initial consultation.
Administered within the skin, Micro-tox does not affect deeper muscles; instead it smooths and tightens the skin around your eyes by targeting sweat and oil glands along with enlarged pores. With these glands suppressed, the skin surrounding your eyes becomes noticeably tighter and smoother. For most people, the effects last 3-4 months. Micro-tox differs from other wrinkle relaxer treatments in that it involves a larger number of very small, superficial injections. The procedure requires 30-90 minutes to perform depending on the treatment area, and other than mild bruising that may last 3-5 days, treatments typically have very little downtime.
What if you could laugh (or frown, for that matter) without exaggerating the fine lines and wrinkles surrounding your eyes? Botox Cosmetic® and Dysport® injectable treatments help to reduce moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines by working beneath the surface to temporarily suppress the muscle activity that causes them. Administered by injection in about 15 minutes (with little to no downtime), they yield results that last about 3-4 months.
PDO Thread Lift
This isn’t a facelift, but it acts like one. PDO is a minimally invasive procedure that reduces fine lines and wrinkles as well as jowls and nasolabial folds, while encouraging collagen production for more volume in the treated areas. PDO stands for polydioxanone, an absorbable polymer that is flexible and durable. Threads of PDO are inserted into the treatment area to lift and reposition facial and neck tissues. The procedure takes about [HOW LONG?] to perform. Recovery time averages three days, with full activity after seven days. Results are immediate, and last about 18 months between maintenance treatments.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) therapy uses growth factors from your own blood to rejuvenate skin. A small sample of blood is drawn at your appointment. Your own plasma, white and red cells and other growth properties form the basis for an injectable formula that stimulates collagen growth, regenerates tissue, improves skin tone, and naturally smoothes and tightens the skin. Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve as the body builds its own collagen. Often more than one session is needed for optimal results. The procedure requires no after care. It can be a standalone treatment, or used in combination with other procedures such as micro needling to enhance results. Mild swelling, redness or bruising fades within one to three days.
