Fillers & Injectables
Just about everyone has heard of BOTOX® to treat fine lines and wrinkles of the face. BOTOX® is actually a purified version of a natural protein called Clostridium botulinum. BOTOX® is administered in very small doses and relaxes and smooths deep furrows and lines in the face.
In recent years, BOTOX® has become hugely popular, and the good news is that it is not something reserved for the rich and famous any more. It is administered as a series of subcutaneous injections, typically in the forehead area of your face.
Amazingly, no anesthetic is even required. The procedure is extremely brief and pain-free, and you may resume normal activities as soon as you leave the office. In some cases, you may feel a slight tingling or soreness in the treated area but only for a very short time. The side effects of these treatments are minimal.
Another good thing about BOTOX® treatments is that the they can last up to four months, and the treatments can be repeated as often as necessary as the effects wear off over time.
Many cosmetic enhancements to your face and upper body are minimally invasive and do not require extensive surgery. Injectable fillers like Radiesse are frequently used to fill in spaces underneath deep folds and wrinkles in order to smooth them away. These products are made out of naturally occurring sugar molecules known as hyaluronic acid and are well received by the body. Radiesse can also be used to give you fuller and shapelier lips.
Radiesse is a popular injectable filler that may be a good choice for you if you have the following conditions:
- Shallow contours
- Facial creases and glabeller lines
- Wrinkles and crow’s feet
- Naso-labial folds around the nose and mouth
- Recessed scars
Hyaluronic acid based fillers work especially well because they attract up to 1000 times the original volume in water, keeping the area fuller for much longer periods. Since the fillers are not made with animal byproducts, no allergic skin testing is required; you can usually enjoy the benefits of these fillers right away.
This dermal filler is made of calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel. The chemical makeup of Radiesse actually stimulates your body to produce more collagen, enhancing the benefits of this filler even more. Unlike other dermal fillers, it continues to work over time.

If you have noticed that your face is developing creases, such as those between the nose and mouth called marionette lines, Juvederm® can help. Juvederm is a facial filler that adds volume to your face, plumping it up and smoothing out lines and creases. Results are immediate and most people are highly pleased with their new and more youthful appearance.
You can choose from two forms of Juvederm: Juvederm® Ultra — for recontouring and plumping facial folds and wrinkles; and Juvederm® Ultra Plus – a stronger formulation for smoothing deeper folds and wrinkles.
Our physician and R.N. will examine your skin and help you choose the most appropriate type of Juvederm.
Results are instant. Juvederm is the type of cosmetic treatment often called a “lunchtime” treatment because you can immediately return to your normal activities. One treatment is usually enough to give you excellent smoothing, and the results can last as long as 12 months. You can have periodic touch-up treatments to maintain the results.
Juvederm was approved by the FDA in 2006 for treating facial folds and wrinkles. It is made by Allergan, Inc., the same company that makes BOTOX® Cosmetic.
If you would like to have a personal consultation and learn more about Juvederm, please call or email us today.
Juvederm Ultra is $700/ syringe
Juvederm Ultra Plus is $700/ syringe
Restylane® can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years.
Restylane® helps to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines that run from your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines).
XEOMIN (incobotulinumtoxinA) for injection, for intramuscular use, is a prescription medication that is injected into facial muscles for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines (frown lines) in adult patients.
When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines.
Botulinum toxin type A – the active ingredient in XEOMIN®– acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle bers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, XEOMIN® can temporarily reduce the lines on your forehead between your brows.
As you age, the cheek area loses its youthful shape. The cheeks flatten out and the skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC injectable gel is designed to temporarily reverse these signs of aging. It is a gel that is specifically injected into the cheek area to lift the skin. It temporarily adds volume to the cheek area and results in a smoother contour and more youthful appearance to the face.
It is injected into the cheek area using a small needle. It temporarily corrects volume in the cheek area and gives the appearance of a more youthful, smoother skin surface.
Laser Skin Services
An IPL procedure utilizes an intense beam of broad-spectrum light to target the lower layers of the skin. The procedure stimulates collagen growth while removing damaged and photo-aged skin. IPL™ photo rejuvenation therapy can improve the color, firmness, and texture of the skin all at once.
IPL™ photo-facial procedures have grown in popularity recently because benefits have been shown to greatly outweigh the risks. The potential side effects of photo-facial treatment, such as: swelling, redness, and facial flushing, are minor and usually disappear within a few hours or days of the procedure
Benefits of IPL
Minimize pore size and acne scars
- Diminish redness
- Reduce brown spots
- Erase broken capillaries
- Smoothes rough textured skin
Laser skin tightening is a non-surgical procedure that uses a laser to tighten skin by heating the collagen under the skin’s surface. Facial skin tightening results are noticeable immediately after the treatment, and can last for several days after the initial procedure. Additional skin tightening occurs over the next few weeks. Optimal results usually require three or more treatments about a month apart.
With the regeneration of natural collagen, laser skin tightening patients immediately begin to notice smoother, softer skin and a more youthful appearance. The effects continue to improve over the next few months following laser skin tightening treatment, as the skin’s natural stores of collagen are gradually replenished.
Benefits of Skin Tightening
- Smoother skin with a more youthful appearance
- Results visible immediately
- Replenish Collagen levels
Sun spots, which include: age spots, liver spots, freckles, solar lentigines, and other lesions resulting from solar damage are removed via laser treatment.
Sun spots develop due to overexposure to the sun and become more common and noticeable later in life. The darker pigment is broken down by the laser and reabsorbed into the skin. Over the next few days you will notice an improvement in skin appearance as remaining pigment continues to flake and fall off.
Spider Veins are small veins close to the skin’s surface and their shape is often compared to a “spider web”. Spider veins are generally the result of weakened blood vessels due to aging, they are generally a cosmetic skin concern and should not cause pain or long-term heath problems. Heat energy from the laser is focused on the vein causing it to collapse and prevent new blood from entering the vein, causing it to fade.
Laser vein removal requires no downtime and can be used for legs or for the face as the laser can also directly target delicate facial vascular veins. A consultation with a member of our Aesthetic & Medical Staff is required prior to the procedure to determine a treatment plan which achieves your goals and delivers the best results.
Acne and the long-lasting scars that can result have the potential to negatively impact a person’s self confidence and their enjoyment of life. Laser treatment can reduce or eliminate Pigment irregularities and improve the appearance of scars. The procedure works by targeting the overactive oil gland causing the blemish with the IPL machine, the pulses of light shut down the gland and stop oil from being produced allowing the skin area to heal more rapidly.
The procedure itself is usually less than an hour long, with most patients able to continue their normal schedule, as long as direct, prolonged sun exposure is avoided for 3 to 4 days. Minor side effects like swelling or redness are possible, but usually disappear fairly rapidly.
Tired of shaving and waxing unwanted body hair? Laser hair removal works by targeting the root cause of the hair: the follicle itself! Heat is directed at specific hair follicles, shutting down the production of hair by shrinking the opening of the follicle, preventing hair from growing back with the same thickness.
Best results are seen from undergoing multiple procedures over a period of a few months. The follicles within the treated area are completely shut down or partially closed, so any hair that continues to grow in the treated area will be finer in texture and easier to eliminate with periodic maintenance.
*Laser Service Pricing varies by skin area & number of sessions*
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that is chemical-free. A spray of microcrystals is used to remove the outermost layer of old, dry skin cells and leave skin looking younger and healthier. Microdermabrasion encourages the production of a new layer of skin cells with higher levels of elastin and collagen, further improving the skin’s appearance. Microdermabrasion is much gentler than dermabrasion. Dermabrasion is an intensive procedure used to treat deep facial lines, extreme sun damage, and scars.
Those with wrinkles, age spots, sun-damage, uneven skin pigmentation, clogged pores, skin texture problems, or minor scars are candidates for microdermabrasion. Patients dealing with rosacea or acne may also benefit from microdermabrasion treatments. The gentle micro crystal spray can improve skin imperfections and conditions by removing the upper layer of dead and damaged skin cells to reveal the new, fresh skin beneath.

What are NOVATHREADS?
They are hypodermic needles preloaded with a PDO absorbable suture.
- Natural results
- No surgery, No pain
- Lunchtime procedure
- Uncontested for Neck & Jawline (but not limited to)
PDO absorbable suture?
- It’s a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. PDO sutures are used to perform cardiothoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery). It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body.
- Your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months & won’t leave you with any scar tissue.
How does it work?
It’s amazingly simple, actually!
In medical terms “Selective Inflammatory Response”, it is the principle behind a lot of aesthetic procedures (such as Fractional Laser, Chemical Peels & MicroNeedling). Our skin is very good at repairing itself, and by inserting NOVATHREADS we make it heal itself by creating new collagen, naturally!
Your skin gently reacts to the inserted threads
- Yes, PDO is fully absorbable, but that doesn’t mean your skin won’t react to it. During the 4 to 6 months needed to fully absorb the PDO suture, your skin is also repairing itself around it.
- It’s “controlled healing” happening underneath the skin!
Mesh or Lift
The first one, called the NuMesh, consists of creating a mesh under the skin (i.e. 2 sutures inserted vertically & 3 sutures horizontally). Sort of like a #hashtag, or a net. This Mesh will serve as the foundation for our new collagen production. The NuMesh tightens the skin naturally from within. Results appear naturally, without any drastic change!
The other technique, called the NuLift is utilized to produce a more dramatic and immediate result. The PDO sutures have “barbs&rdquo or “cogs”, which provide a grip underneath the skin. Sutures are inserted the same way, except they can be pulled in 1 or 2 directions, creating an instant skin repositioning. Just like the NuMesh, the skin will then build new collagen which will secure the lift!
No cuts or incisions.
The NovaThreads are needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO thread. Simply insert the whole needle in the interstitial tissue at subdermal level, parallel to the surface of the skin, & pull the needle out.
The PDO thread remains under the skin.
Restoring the V-Shape
A beautiful and healthy face has a “V-shape”. With the ageing of tissues and the action of gravity, this “V-shape” diminishes or inverts. The idea behind the Nu-Mesh and the Nu-Lift technique is to either create a scaffolding in order to support the tissues and keep them in the “V-shape” or where necessary to delicately lift the tissues and reposition the skin to recreate the “V-shape&rdquo where it’s been lost.
Neck & Jaw
Although NOVATHREADS can be inserted almost anywhere, one area where they are especially effective is the neck and jawline. The lower third of the face is challenging to treat effectively with botulinum toxin or injectable fillers, which are most effective in the upper and middle third of the face, respectively.
