RADIESSE is a unique formula that stimulates collagenesis – the production of new collagen – which results in increased volume for natural looking wrinkle correction that may last a year or more.

Latisse®

Latisse LATISSE® solution is a growth treatment for lashes. In fact, it’s the only FDA-approved treatment clinically proven to grow lashes. And it’s the only lash growth product of its kind available by prescription. It grows lashes longer, fuller and darker.

LATISSE® solution is a once-a-day treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes, as instructed by your doctor. Then, gradually, the results come in. You may start to see more length in as little as 4 weeks and you should achieve full growth in 16 weeks. It’s not an illusion of growth. It’s your own eyelashes — only better.

How LATISSE® works.
LATISSE® makes lash growth possible because of its active ingredient: bimatoprost. Although the precise mechanism of action is unknown, LATISSE® is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, it increases the length of this phase, and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase.

Laser Resurfacing

The Fractional CO2 Laser allows us to use a high-energy beam to vaporize scars, lines, wrinkles and other skin imperfections, layer by layer. The laser affords a level of precision, control and accuracy that is not available by any other method. The laser setting for the face can only be used up to the jaw line because of difficulties in healing if used on the skin of the neck with high settings. (We treat the neck in a separate session with extreme caution). This procedure is performed on an outpatient basis.

IPL (Photo Facial)

This therapy is based on high-intensity pulses of light that penetrate the skin. Different wavelengths treat different skin conditions. To remove body hair permanently or almost permanently, for example, IPL zeros in on the hair follicles and kills them. However, hair grows in cycles and some follicles are lying dormant. Light therapy must hit the hair follicle during its growing phase to work properly.

IPL Photofacial treatment is mainly used in the treatment of various skin abnormalities such as:

  • Age spots
  • Liver spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Facial flushing
  • Redness
  • Broken capillaries
  • Telangiectasias (purple or blue veins on the face, also called spider veins)
  • Hemangiomas (red, purple, or blue birthmarks formed by blood vessels)
  • Freckles
  • Minor sun damage
  • Port wine stains
  • Tattoos
  • Varicose veins
  • Hypopigmentation (pale spots)
  • Unwanted hair
  • Large pores

Studies have shown that photofacial treatment vastly reduces the symptoms of rosacea and is an effective rosacea skin care treatment. It is also increasingly used as a tool to prevent signs of aging. Unlike laser resurfacing, chemical peel and dermabrasion, there is almost no downtime with IPL. That means no blisters, burns or long recovery period, and you can go right back to your life after your treatment is complete.

Hand Rejuvenation Treatment

Hand rejuvenation treatments can help restore the hands to a more youthful appearance. Because our hands receive so much exposure, it is one of the first places to start showing visible signs of aging. Natural aging, and exposure to sunlight, causes this appearance. The more common visible signs of aging include darkened spots (a.k.a. “age spots”) and precancerous growths. A loss of fatty tissue also occurs, making our hands look bony.Various treatment options are available, so one treatment or a combination can be used to help achieve a look that patients desire.

Lip Augmentation

Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that enhances the size and shape of your lips. There are basically two ways to augment the size of your lips. Injectable fillers provide a nonsurgical, usually temporary boost for your lips, while surgically-inserted lip implants offer a permanent solution. A new option — laser lip rejuvenation — can be used to enhance either surgical or nonsurgical approaches.
