Many are turning to Botox® to reduce moderate to severe frown lines between their brows, forehead wrinkles and crow's feet. This safe and effective medication is placed into your wrinkles using a tiny needle. It is used to eliminate facial wrinkles and frown lines by decreasing the movement of the muscles in these trouble areas. Botox® can brighten up your attitude and outlook by reducing the wrinkles of time or making small improvements in an otherwise perfect face.

Botox®, a specially formulated, purified protein, relaxes the muscles when injected in the targeted area, ultimately reducing the appearance of frown lines and facial wrinkles. It is a minimally invasive procedure, allowing patients to return to normal daily activities immediately following the procedure. A topical anesthesia can be used, if necessary.

FDA approved, Botox® is a safe and effective procedure that provides patients with results that can last an average of 3 to 5 months.

Dermal Fillers

Smoothing facial folds and wrinkles and revolumizing the face can make an enormous difference in a person’s appearance and make them look several years younger. Dermal fillers can help reverse the signs of aging and provide patients with a natural, youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are used to:

  • Reduce or eliminate wrinkles
  • Reduce the appearance of scars
  • Enhance lips
  • Enhance the contours of the face

There are a number of dermal fillers available today, including:

  • Hyaluronic acid based fillers (i.e. Restylane®, Perlane® and Juvéderm™)
  • Calcium hydroxyl apatite fillers (i.e. Radiesse®)
  • Poly-L lactic acid fillers (i.e. Sculptra®)

Your doctor will work with you individually to determine the best filler for your individual circumstances. Topical anesthetic cream or local anesthetic will be used to numb the targeted area. Then, using a small needle, the dermal filler will carefully be injected into each area being treated.

Side effects are uncommon, but can include: bruising, redness and swelling among others. Duration of results vary depending on the type of filler injected, but can last from three months to five years.


Microdermabrasion is especially for those with less than perfect skin. People with skin that has been damaged by the sun, age spots, acne or has a rough texture may benefit from microdermabrasion. The treatment removes the uppermost layer of skin and removes dead skin cells to reveal a healthier appearance. The exfoliation helps to revitalize the skin and encourage blood flow. We will consult with you on the treatment plan we feel will achieve your desired results. Ask us about our microdermabrasion system if you’re interested in improving the overall appearance of your skin.

Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. Patients may experience a slight warming sensation as the microdermabrasion crystals exfoliate the skin. The length and number of treatments solely depends on each individual’s condition.

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that offers no downtime following treatment. As the new layer of skins appears it will be more sensitive and requires more protection from the sun. Use moisturizing creams to keep your skin hydrated and to help prevent any possible irritation.
