Cosmetic Med-Spa Services:
Eliminate unsightly veins on the legs and hands
In most cases, visible blood vessels pose no health risk and are nothing more than a cosmetic imperfection — but that doesn’t mean you have to live with them. Sclerotherapy is an in-office treatment for spider veins and small varicose veins. Targeted injection of a specific medication into an unwanted vein causes the vessel to collapse and close. Over the weeks that follow, the treated vein is absorbed by the body and disappears. Sclerotherapy is the gold standard of treatment for spider veins because it is relatively painless, involves no anesthesia or incisions, requires no downtime and delivers positive results for an overwhelming majority of patients.
Improve frown lines, crow’s feet and horizontal forehead lines
Botox® has helped millions of women and men worldwide fight facial wrinkles and rejuvenate their appearance. When injected into overactive facial muscles, Botox® temporarily causes the muscles to relax, softening your expressions and smoothing lines and wrinkles in the process. There is minimal discomfort during treatment and you can return to normal activity immediately. The wrinkle-reducing effects of Botox® last three to four months on average before the next treatment is required to maintain results. In the hands of a licensed and experienced injector, Botox® is a safe and convenient procedure that provides natural-looking rejuvenation with no downtime.
Add volume, contour facial features, smooth lines and diminish wrinkles on the face
Youthful skin has an abundance of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid that keep it plump and supple. As you mature, your body produces less and less of these natural volumizers, causing your skin to lose its lifted contours and smooth, line-free surface. Dermal fillers are used to restore depleted volume to give you an instantly younger-looking appearance. Injectable fillers can also be used to augment the lips, reduce hollows underneath the eyes and improve the appearance of smile lines and recessed scars. Dermal fillers are among the most popular cosmetic treatments because they provide immediate results with minimal risks or recovery time.
Improve sun damage, rosacea and visible blood vessels
We all want a clear complexion, but even with a healthy diet and a meticulous skincare routine, beautiful skin can be difficult to achieve. Photorejuvenation using IPL (intense pulsed light) technology is a powerful tool in the fight against some of the most common skin woes, including sun damage, broken capillaries and facial redness. During an IPL photofacial, a high-powered, short-pulsed, multi-wavelength light source is directed at your skin. The light gently heats the superficial layers of your skin to stimulate collagen production, shrink dilated blood vessels and reduce unwanted sun spots. A series of IPL treatments is recommended for best results.
Permanently reduce unwanted hair on the body and face
Tired of spending money on razors and losing hours of your life to shaving and waxing? Laser hair removal can permanently reduce hair on almost any area of your face or body. Our GentleMax laser hair removal system emits a beam of highly concentrated light that targets the pigment found in hair follicles. The pigment absorbs the light and the resulting heat generated in the follicle inhibits future hair growth. Because laser hair removal only affects follicles in the active phase of hair growth, a series of treatments is needed to achieve maximum hair reduction. The GentleMax laser is safe and effective for all skin types.
Erase superficial facial vessels, broken capillaries and cherry angiomas
The KTP Aura Laser is effective in clearing up blood vessels, red spots and pigmented sun spots. The device uses heat energy to gently coagulate the blood within an unwanted vessel, leaving the surrounding areas untouched. This results in a collapse of the treated vessel and an overall decrease in redness. KTP Aura Laser treatments require no anesthesia or downtime.
Reduce fine lines, uneven skin texture and acne scarring
Microneedling, also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a minimally-invasive procedure that rejuvenates the skin using a device containing fine needles. When the device is applied to your skin, the needles puncture the surface and create controlled micro-injuries. Each of these tiny injuries triggers your body’s natural healing response, which works to repair the damage by producing collagen and elastin. A topical numbing agent is used to ensure the treatment is virtually pain-free. Microneedling can improve skin texture and firmness, as well as the appearance of scars, fine lines and areas of discoloration. It also promotes better absorption of skincare products, increasing their effectiveness.
Treat facial redness, blue facial veins, age/sun spots and skin laxity
With the award-winning excel V laser system, we can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, stretch marks, uneven pigmentation, acne discoloration, redness, blue facial veins and more. The laser uses rapid pulses of high-intensity light to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin, while simultaneously heating the layers underneath to stimulate collagen growth. As the treated area heals, the healthy skin that emerges is smoother, firmer and clearer.
More than any other part of your body, your skin is a reflection of your life. Every year’s worth of choices and experiences - from your expressions to your diet to your skincare habits - are documented in the changes in your skin. While growing older brings valuable wisdom, appearing older is something few of us look forward to.
Fortunately, innovations are continuously made in the field of anti-aging. We are always discovering and perfecting nonsurgical techniques that can help roll back the clock, or simply give you healthier and more beautiful skin, with minimal discomfort or downtime.
