Botox & Dysport
Problem: Wrinkles that become more marked with age, sometimes leaving etched lines even when you are not actively expressing your facial muscles. These can give the impression of frowning, sadness or just plain aging.
Solution: Botox or Dysport can relax facial muscles in a dose-dependent manner, softening the wrinkles on your face. These treatments can be used in the prevention of permanent wrinkles as well
Problem: With aging, and sometimes just due to hereditary factors, you can have soft tissue volume deficiency in your face. This can lead to shadows and loss of smooth transitions between different areas of your face, giving the impression of aging, fatigue and even sadness.
Solution: Injectable fillers offer immediate improvement, with the lifting of sagging tissues, smoothing out of the skin, and plumping up of deflated areas of the face.
Types of Fillers
Problem: Significant loss of soft tissue volume in the face, especially in the cheeks and temples and along the jawline.
Solution: Sculptra is an injectable liquid made of Poly-L lactic acid. This synthetic form of lactic acid strongly stimulates the production of collagen as the body dissolves the Sculptra. The collagen that your body makes can last 2-3 years, but takes 3-6 months to form after Sculptra injection. Thus, this is not for those who want immediate changes.
Problem: Do you have stubborn excess fat in the area under the chin and jowl region that won’t disappear even with dedicated exercise and diet?
Solution: A series of injections of Kybella, which is an FDA-approved enzyme that targets fat cells and permanently removes them.
Problem: Uneven facial skin texture and color, often dry and dull due to aging.
Solution: Series of microneedling treatments that are easy to tolerate, involving the creation of tiny channels in the facial skin with stainless steel needle tips. This is combined with anti-aging serums or PRP to promote improved circulation to the skin and stimulate collagen production. This results in smoother skin with better color and texture.
PRP Facial Injection
Problem: Mature skin with loss of elasticity and collagen, due to aging changes.
Solution: PRP is harvested from your own blood, and concentrates platelets that contain numerous growth factors that are injected under the skin into areas like the tear trough region, nasolabial region and around the mouth. This will result in smoother, plumper skin with improved texture and thickness.
Problem: Have you noticed the loss of skin strength and elasticity with age that shows up as slight sagging of your previously firm face, jawline and neck?
Solution: Ultherapy is a safe, non-invasive, no-downtime procedure that uses ultrasound technology to stimulate new collagen formation. It is the only FDA-cleared treatment that lifts the neck, chin and brow and improves lines and wrinkles on the upper chest.
MINT Suture Threadlifts
Problem: Have you noticed the downward descent of facial structures? Do you find yourself in front of the mirror, noticing how much better your face appears with just a little “lift” of your fingers on the sides of your face? You are not a candidate for a surgical facelift but wish to pursue treatment to counter the downward pull of age and gravity.
Solution: Suture threadlifts use barbed sutures that dissolve over several months, to lift your facial tissues, with effects lasting a year.
Treatment Of Facial Pigmentation Problems
Lentigines, Melasma Treatment
Rosacea and Vascular Lesion Treatment
Problem: Sun damage, inflammation, and hormonal changes can result in uneven coloration, with brown spots or splotches on the face. There can be redness from rosacea or broken capillaries from sun damage and aging.
Solution: Laser treatment, combined with proper skin care products, can be effective in improving discoloration issues of facial skin.
Laser Treatments For Face & Neck
This treatment can range from a series of totally non-invasive with no downtime needed treatments to a one-time deep resurfacing treatment with downtime but dramatic results.
Laser non-ablative Fotona 4D Facelift: Tightens and lifts the skin and soft tissues of the face, typically with a series of three treatment sessions.
Laser non-ablative TightSculpt: Tightens skin and provides a subtle reduction of undesired fat under the chin.
Laser resurfacing, full-field or fractional: Requires more downtime but results in a more dramatic improvement in the texture of the skin, smoothing out fine wrinkles and reducing surface discoloration.
Laser Scar reduction of acne scars, surgical or traumatic scars: Series of treatments greatly reduces scarring.
Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture
Problem: You are not a fan of Botox or fillers but are still bothered by wrinkles and sagging skin due to aging.
Solution: A series of facial acupuncture sessions combined with body acupuncture can stimulate the improved circulation of blood to your face, thereby nourishing your tissues, as well as relax muscles in your face. This results in a refreshed appearance with reduced wrinkles.
Laser Hair Removal
Problem: Are you tired of having to deal with unwanted hair, either with shaving, waxing, or using depilatories like Nair?
Solution: Laser hair removal, performed with Fotona XP Dynamis in a series of sessions, provides virtually painless removal of unwanted hair on the face or body.
Problem: Have you noticed thinning of your hair and maybe even obvious loss of hair at the crown of the head or receding hairline?
Solution: There are various treatment options, including oral dietary supplement, topical hair growth solution, laser hair restoration protocol as well as PRP scalp injections with or without microneedling, that are proven to improve hair growth. Depending on your specific situation, single modality vs. combination therapy may be recommended for hair restoration.
