Botox is a neuromodulator injected into the facial muscles to temporarily smooth out the lines and wrinkles caused by facial animation. Most patients consider it to be a comfortable treatment provided by our expert Physician Assistants and Nurse Injectors, resulting in a lovely and natural look.
As we age, the contours of our faces change over time due to bone loss and fat loss or redistribution. We can enhance areas such as cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette depressions, chin prominence and so on, with a treatment of tiny facial injections designed to replace or augment natural volume. These products include: Juvéderm, Voluma, Radiesse, Restylane Silk, Belotero Balance, or Sculptra, but don’t worry, we are the experts and will guide you with what products will best achieve your goals.
BBL Broadband Phototherapy
Superior to IPL, this light-based laser therapy is used to treat various aesthetic concerns of the skin including: changes in texture and tone of skin from sun damage, age spots and hyperpigmentation, rosacea and redness, and small visible blood vessels. It is a comfortable procedure made even easier with topical numbing cream, and typically most patients describe it as having no downtime but a multitude of benefits. We love to hear that they receive so many compliments on their skin post-treatment!
This in-office ablative laser removes thin layers of the skin surface to improve texture and provide a more youthful appearance. The key to this laser is precision – the depth is programmed to be exact. By eliminating the top layers of damaged skin cells (that can cause skin to have a tired and aged look), the healing skin cells grow and resurface over the treated area. The result is healthier-looking skin with reduced wrinkles and improved evenness in color and tone. We do our best to focus on your comfort during the procedure and will discuss in detail your skin goals, estimated downtime, what to expect during the laser, and post-laser recovery skin care.
For this in-office ablative laser, we use a tiny laser beam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. Because only a fraction of your skin is directly treated with the laser, the surrounding untreated tissue promotes rapid healing. This skin’s wound healing response creates new collagen which add firmness and resilience to the skin. We customize your treatment based on your skin goals, and often combine laser modalities with the intent to maximize benefit without adding downtime. As always, we focus on comfort during the procedure and will have you well prepared for what to expect during and after the laser.

If you have a couple of small problem areas and are interested in a non-invasive procedure with minimal downtime, Coolsculpting may be a great option. The skin is drawn in between to two cooling plates essentially freezing the fat, triggering pre-programmed cell death. We typically see approximately a 20% reduction in the fat per treatment, but ultimately this can vary substantially. Coolscultping will typically require more than one treatment site for a final sculpted result, and our brand new handpieces can reduce treatment times per site considerably!
ThermiTight is an office procedure that uses the power of safe, radiofrequency energy to stimulate the production of collagen and tighten loose skin on the face, neck and body. It is ideal for those patients that want a noticeable improvement but who are not yet ready for surgery or just do not want surgery. It is a comfortable, micro-invasive procedure where a tiny probe is inserted under the skin using local anesthetic, and radiofrequency energy is applied directly to targeted subdermal tissues causing immediate shrinkage of subcutaneous fat and tightening of skin. We often combine it with localized liposuction of the fat under the chin (submental fat) to create an even more flattering contour.
