Early Intervention/Prejuvenation

  • Begin maintenance programs in your 20’s and put the brakes on aging before it starts
  • Botox®, injectable fillers, corrective skin care treatments, and sunblock in your 20’s and 30’s
  • Judicial treatment when you are young prolongs the need for surgery
  • Small enhancements and tweaks maintain naturalness

Lip Enhancements


Introducing Volbella®

  • FDA-approved to provide lip fullness and soften appearance of lines around the mouth with results lasting up to 1 year
  • Diminish vertical lip lines (a.k.a. smoker’s lines)
  • Accentuate the border of your lips
  • Plump up your lips to make them fuller
  • Enhance the cupid’s bow (the “M” part of your mid-upper lip)

Needle-less Injections

  • New topical form of botulinum toxin (main ingredient in Botox®) is currently undergoing clinical trials for FDA approval
  • Would be used in same areas as Botox® (forehead lines, in between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet)
  • Currently investigating cream for under-the-eyelid fat and gel for the reduction of smile lines
  • More anti-aging options for needle-phobes in the coming years

The Liquid Facelift

  • Advanced techniques are now available to lift and contour facial features without surgery
  • Involves the use of advanced dermal fillers such as Radiesse®, Sculptra® and Juvederm® usually in combination with Botox® Cosmetic
  • Each injectable works in its own unique way to contour specific areas of the face
  • Each Liquid Facelift is customized to take into account different facial features and skin types, as well as collagen loss and skin laxity

Fat is the New Skinny

  • Volume is lost in the face as we age
  • Restoring volume loss is important to maintain a youthful, healthy look

Combination Treatments (1 + 1 = 3)

  • Combining treatments allows for a natural, comprehensive result that addresses the different signs of aging
  • Often uses injectable fillers, laser resurfacing, and corrective skin care (products, peels, microdermabrasion)


  • Platelets help heal tissue and grow new cells as well as contain active growth factors which can promote hair growth
  • Uses own blood, which is processed to only include platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and then re-injected into the face or scalp
  • It’s an effective, non-invasive, anti-aging option with minimal recovery and a lasting outcome
  • Micro-needling with PRP with the use of the derma pen manually resurfaces for smoother, firmer skin
  • Platelet-rich plasma can also be injected into scalp to naturally stimulate hair growth and make existing thinning hair thicker by strengthening hair follicles


  • A non-surgical way to break down submental fat (underneath the chin) with in-office injections
  • Contains deoxycholic acid, a natural compound found in the body
  • Only to be used for “double chin” area
