The Cellfina™ System is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least two years – the longest FDA-cleared duration for a cellulite treatment. Performed in a doctor's office by a qualified physician, Cellfina™ treats the primary structural cause of cellulite for a smooth and healthy look that gives patients the confidence wear a bathing suit and higher hemlines.
The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is FDA-cleared to contours the body by safely and effectively freezing away unwanted fat permanently without surgery or downtime. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During the procedure, feel free to read, check emails, or even take a nap. You can reduce fat on multiple areas of your body with the CoolSculpting procedure, and additional sessions may further enhance your results. We can create an individualized treatment plan tailored just for you. The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to normal activities immediately. In the weeks and months to follow, your body naturally processes and eliminates the treated fat cells. Once the fat cells are gone, they're gone for good.
Purified botulinum toxin (Botox) is used to soften facial lines and wrinkles and to treat excessive sweating under the arms or on the palms of the hands. Botulinum toxin works well for forehead lines, crow's feet, and frown lines. Purified botulinum toxin is injected into the muscle in these areas and works by weakening the muscle, which in turn lessens the lines of facial expression. The results last 3-6 months.
Ultherapy is a new non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the body's own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin of the face, neck, chin, and chest. Ultherapy can help to lift the brow, smooth out lines around the eyes, lift jowels and sharpen the jawline, and soften smile lines around the mouth. We also have experience in treating off-label areas with Ultherapy to tighten loose skin on the abdomen, arms, and legs and have seen dramatic results.
Ultherapy uses safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin – including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift – without disturbing the surface of the skin. Results will unfold over the course of 6 months to 1 year. While ultrasound does not duplicate the results of surgery, Ultherapy has proven to be an inviting alternative for those who are not yet ready for or are opposed to surgery.
Sculptra Aesthetic is a facial injectable that works gradually in a series of treatments – on average, three injection sessions over a few months – for a subtle, more youthful looking appearance.
Juvéderm is a smooth consistency biodegradable gel made of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration to deeper wrinkles mainly, the smile lines and to enhance the lips.
Restylane is the first and only cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin.
Radiesse is a new injectable product for filling the nasolabial folds. The advantage of this product is the potential for a long lasting effect with results lasting in some patients up to two years.
Using patented fractional technology, light is delivered as an array of small beams deep into the skin. This initiates a restorative, natural healing process, resulting in an improved skin appearance. This breakthrough technology is useful for the treatment of fine wrinkles, acne scars, traumatic scars, stretch marks, and melasma. Fractional laser resurfacing plays an essential role in non-surgical facial rejuvenation (along with Botox, dermal fillers, and "photofacial" treatments). Generally, four to six treatments are required to achieve maximal benefit. Patients can expect about 48 hours of redness and swelling after treatments.
Our photorejuvenation process uses the optimal wavelength of light to clear vascular and pigmented lesions by targeting hemoglobin (for vascular lesions) and melanin (for pigmented lesions). Once the light is absorbed as heat by the lesion, the lesion disappears. Photorejuvenation is effective on the face, arms, chest, and other large body areas. Our process can remove damage caused by years of sun exposure and thus minimize the effects of aging.
Permanent hair reduction is achieved when the cells responsible for growing new hair are disabled. Light at specific wavelengths can target the pigment in hair follicles which absorb this light energy as heat. We can use specific wavelengths to target both finer and coarser hair as well as lighter hair on all skin types. We can treat large areas (i.e. back, chest, legs) as well as smaller areas (underarms and bikini lines).
A solution causing chemo-exfoliation is applied to the skin. Peels can be a useful adjunct in treating acne, "liver" or sun spots, lessening fine facial wrinkles, and improving skin texture.
Since receiving FDA clearance in 2000, the XTRAC Excimer Laser has come to be recognized by dermatologists worldwide as the market leader in the treatment of psoriasis and vitiligo. XTRAC Lasers produce a highly effective, safe, and painless therapy by delivering a targeted, super-narrow UVB band to affected areas, resulting in effective and rapid improvement without the worry of harmful side effects of invasive, systemic agents.
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure to treat uncomplicated spider veins and uncomplicated reticular veins. The treatment involves the injection of a solution into the affected veins. Asclera® is a sclerosing agent that is injected into the vein. It works by damaging the endothelium, the cells lining the inside of blood vessels. This causes blood platelets and cellular debris to attach to the lining of the vessels; eventually, cellular debris and platelets cause the blood vessel to clot. Over time, the clotted vein will be replaced with tissue.
