 Botox®

Botox® cosmetics is injectable products made with purified botulinum toxin. When injected into the skin, this drug can temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles in many areas of the face. This may also be used to treat muscle spasms and excessive sweating.

 Juvederm®

Juvederm® is a dermal filler that can be used to fill lines, wrinkles and other depressions in the skin. By adding volume to depressions, Juverderm® helps your skin look younger with improved volume. Many plastic surgeons use Juvederm® for facial contouring procedures and lip augmentation.

 Latisse®

Latisse® is an eyelash solution produced by Allergan containing bimatoprost ophthalmic solution 0.03 percent that can treat inadequate lashes. Latisse® solution is a topical medication that can easily be applied at home.

 Lip Augmentation

Lip augmentation procedures can be used to enhance the shape of your lips and increase their volume, creating fuller-looking lips with more kissable area. Rather than an implant, injectable fillers such as Juvederm® and Radiesse® can be used to augment the lips.

  Radiesse®

Radiesse® is a dermal filler made by BioForm Medical that contains calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a water-based gel.

Radiesse® is a long-lasting injectable filler that can be used to fill nearly any type of wrinkle.

 

 Obagi Blue Peel®

The Obagi Blue Peel® procedure is brief and usually takes about 15 minutes. The skin to be treated will be thoroughly cleansed. The Obagi Blue Peel® solution will then be applied evenly to your face, neck and chest. The peel removes the outermost layers of skin to treat skin problems.

 Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a procedure designed to treat troublesome veins, often in the legs, and in both men and women.

During treatment, the problematic veins are injected with a sclerosing solution that causes them to collapse, close, and disappear over time.

 Sculptra Aesthetic®

Sculptra Aesthetic® is an injectable, long-lasting polymer filler made by Sanofi-aventis that is used to address contour defects of the facial skin. The product is made from poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) and is biocompatible.

The tiny PLLA particles encourage the natural process of collagen growth in the skin by stimulating fibroblasts, or cells found in connective tissue.
