BOTOX® Cosmetic is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles, especially frown lines between the eyes (glabellar lines) and smile lines (crow’s feet). It is injected under the skin into the muscle in areas surrounding the eyes and forehead in order to reduce crow's feet, frown lines and worry lines. Made from a purified protein, BOTOX® relaxes wrinkles and gives the face a rejuvenated look.
Chemical peels remove the damaged outer layers of skin on the face in order to allow the deeper basal cell layer to generate new surface cells, thereby providing for a smoother texture, reduced scarring, diminished blemishes and partial reversal of sun damaged spots. These peels can produce healthy, glowing skin. Peel formulas and strengths are tailored to each patient. Peels can be combined with other procedures such as Botox®, dermal fillers and surgical options such as a facelift for a younger, healthier look.
The GloMinerals makeup system has been formulated by skin care specialists, using the finest pharmaceutical grade ingredients and micronized minerals available.
Juvéderm® Injectable Gel
Touted as the "next generation" of facial fillers, Juvéderm® injectable gels gently smooth wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose and restore a youthful volume to the face. Made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body, Juvederm® works with your own collagen and elastin to provide volume and support to the skin. Juvéderm® is especially effective around the mouth on the nasolabial folds (deep creases cheek to upper lip) and marionette lines (deep creases corner mouth down towards jawline). It also adds fullness around the cheekbone prominence, although its sister product, Voluma®, is more often used in this area. Treatment takes only 30-60 minutes, depending upon the areas injected, with immediate results and little downtime. Results typically last about 6-12 months, sometimes over one year.
Juvéderm® Voluma™ is a new, FDA-approved dermal filler formulated specifically to add volume to the face around the cheeks, cheekbone prominence and chin. This is the only injectable gel created to provide a subtle, natural enhancement to the mid-face, addressing changes in definition and volume that occur with aging, including loss of bone structure, not just soft tissue structure. Because Juvéderm Voluma is thicker than plain Juvederm®, it can help restore more youthful contours to structurally more complicated areas, by plumping up an area that so often loses volume as part of the aging process. It can also return a firmer shape to the jaw line when some laxity has set in.
Microdermabrasion improves mild to moderate sun damage, scarring, wrinkles and other superficial skin problems. A gentle stream of tiny particles exfoliates (removes) the outer layer of skin, allowing the deeper layers to rejuvenate the surface, providing a fresh, glowing, younger appearance. Only a very thin layer of skin is removed, so sensitive areas such as the face, neck, and hands can be treated. Results are comparable to a light chemical peel and should be immediately visible. Microdermabrasion is often performed in conjunction with other skin renewal procedures, not necessarily on the same day but as part of a tailored treatment regimen, such as facials, light chemical peels, fillers and Botox®. Multiple and periodic microdermabrasion treatments are recommended for full and continual effect.
Radiesse® is a synthetic injectable dermal filler that reduces wrinkles, creases and improves scars by augmenting the body’s natural collagen supply. It can be used on many areas of the face, including the lips, nasolabial folds, peri-oral lines, depressed scars and oral commissures. Treatments typically take 30-60 minutes and require only local anesthetic, occasionally a nerve block. Results are visible immediately after the injection and can last for 6-12 months or longer. The procedure can be repeated as often as needed in order to maintain the augmented appearance.
