Botox® (GH, C, P)BOTOX® is a simple, FDA approved; non-surgical procedure that temporarily improves the appearance of wrinkles that are caused by muscle contraction, such as frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead creases.
We use a small needle filled with a small amount of BOTOX. It is injected precisely into several locations on the face, which relaxes facial muscles and giving you skin that is smooth and unwrinkled. The injections are tiny and can be done in less than 30 minutes, with no sedation or anesthetic, no downtime and minimal discomfort.
Many patients will see an improvement within two to seven days and results typically last from three to six months.

JUVEDERM® Ultra Plus (GH, C, P)When we are young our skin has an abundance of a substance called hyaluronic acid. This acts as a “natural moisturizer” that keeps us plump and wrinkle-free. As we age, the body’s ability to produce hyaluronic acid diminishes naturally, causing the skin to lose some of its volume, which contributes to folds and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can smooth out wrinkles and folds, shape facial contours, or enhance lips in a very natural way. JUVEDERM® Ultra Plus is a smooth gel filler that can instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.
Using a small needle, JUVÉDERM is injected by a doctor under the skin to fill the soft tissue of the dermis. This adds volume and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles instantly.
While there are a variety of hyaluronic acid fillers, JUVÉDERM uses a manufacturing process called HYLACROSS™ technology, which gives JUVÉDERM a smooth-gel structure that holds up over time and is the reason JUVEDERM is the first hyaluronic acid filler that’s FDA approved to last up to one year with only one treatment.

*(GH, P)Collagen gives volume, flexibility and strength to healthy, young skin. As we age, this collagen breaks down, robbing our skin of elasticity and volume, and resulting in wrinkles, lines and loose skin.
Radiesse® is a new injectable product for filling folds and lines that gives a natural appearance and feel while also stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. Using a small needle, Radiesse volumizing filler is injected underneath the dermal layer of the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles in smile lines, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowls and corners of the mouth.
A single Radiesse treatment can have lasting improvements for your skin for up to 12 months. The injections are tiny and can be done in less than 60 minutes, with no sedation or anesthetic, no downtime and minimal discomfort.

Almost half the adult female population and a large percentage of men
are afflicted with spider veins small, unsightly clusters of red, blue
or purple veins that lie close to the surface of the skin. They can be
caused by prolonged standing or sitting, hereditary, pregnancy, or
hormone changes. Without treatment, leg veins may enlarge and worsen
over time causing pain, swelling and discomfort.
The gold standard for treating spider veins is sclerotherapy. A sclerosing solution is injected into the vein, which causes the vein to collapse. The inadequate circulation to the vein is shut down and it is gradually absorbed by the body (similar to a bruise disappearing).
There is minimal discomfort during treatment and there’s no downtime after treatment.
