Dermal fillers can be used to enhance your lips, fill your cheeks, straighten out your jawline, soften grooves underneath your eyes, and many other cosmetic alterations to reduce the visible effects of aging.

KYBELLA®

KYBELLA® is the only FDA approved, injectable, non-invasive, treatment for contouring the fat below the chin. Some body types are more prone to the development of the “double-chin” look, regardless of diet and exercise practices. This extra pocket of hanging skin adds to the appearance of weight and age in the face.

With no downtime required, this procedure can be done in 20 minutes and have you back to your normal activities immediately. Many patients choose this procedure over traditional liposuction.

How does it work?
KYBELLA® permanently removes submental fat with the use of deoxycholic acid, the naturally occurring, fat-busting acid found in the body.

During the procedure, KYBELLA® will be injected into the skin of your neck/under the chin. Patients describe a mild discomfort which lessons with time. Over the counter pain medications are recommended for patients concerned about pain.

Most patients require 2-4 treatments for desired results, with treatment given in various increments. Your goals will be discussed to determine the proper course of action for your body.

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins (a.k.a. “spider veins”) are small blood vessels that are red, purple, and/or blue that twist and turn. They are easily visible through the skin, making them almost impossible to cover up with makeup. They are typically visible on the legs and face.

For varicose veins in the legs, we offer safe, effective, and fast laser treatment that will drastically reduce the appearance of the unwanted spidery webs.

Forget painful treatments and long recovery times, laser vein removal uses energy to destroy the blood vessel which is then absorbed back into the body. Patients describe the sensation as a light snapping sensation on the skin.

Sessions usually take 30-60 minutes depending on the veins being treated. Sometimes, two to three sessions are required for the desired results. There is no downtime and you may resume all normal activities immediately after treatment. Results will begin to show a few days after treatment and will continue to improve for the following six weeks. For more information or to request an appointment, give us a call today!

Microneedling

Microneedling is a minimally invasive facial treatment that encourages the natural rejuvenation and anti-aging processes of your skin while injecting serum to encourage collagen and elastin growth.

The advanced surgical device used ensures precise punctures with the necessary depth and speed needed to target collagen growth in specific areas of the face.

Microneedling is used to treat the appearance of:

  • Acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Large pores
  • Minor scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Burns
  • Freckles

Microneedling is best used on those with healthy skin and no current acne. The tiny, sterile needles puncture the skin repeatedly, triggering a healing response. Patients may return to activities the next day. Redness is the most common side effect. Dryness, stinging, and tingling are also reported.

Results peak around 4-6 months, with the newly built collagen lasting for years. Most patients come back every few months for microneedling sessions.

QWO

Bring your bottom to the top of your to-do list with QWO, the first and only FDA-approved injectable used to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. QWO is a series of 3 injection treatments spaced 3 weeks apart. It is hard to believe that 90% of women have cellulite.

The primary contributing factor to cellulite is the fibrous connective tissue called the fibrous septae. When the skin thins with aging, and the fat cells enlarge and push against the skin, the fibrous septae bands enlarge and push against the skin to create dimples. This is what causes the visible cellulite on the buttocks.

QWO is made from enzymes called collagenases. These enzymes are thought to target the structural causes under the skin, where cellulite starts, to release the fibrous bands, redistribute fat cells, and stimulate the growth of new collagen. QWO is injected three times into the fibrous septae which causes the fibrous strands to slowly release.
