Botox Treatment

Botox is now often performed in nonmedical settings. However, it is advisable to receive Botox injections from trained and experienced healthcare professionals. Count on our doctors and nurse practitioners specially trained in administering injections.

Soft Tissue Fillers

As people get older, the collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elasticity in the skin decrease. This causes wrinkling and a loss of facial fullness and volume around the eyes, mouth, cheeks, jawline, brows, and nose.

Soft tissue filler injections are a minimally invasive procedure.

Laser Hair Reduction

Laser treatments reduce hair density or remove unwanted hair. Hair density reduction allows some hair to regrow after a single course of therapy. Patients, however, need ongoing laser treatments.

With permanent hair removal, hair in the treated area will not regrow after a single course of therapy. Therefore, no ongoing laser therapy is necessary.

Requisite procedures for permanent hair removal and density reduction procedures are influenced by:

  • Hair Color and Thickness
  • Patient’s Skin Color
  • Type and Quality of Laser
  • Laser Operator Competence

Please know that lasers would not work for gray or very fine blonde hair which has little or no melanin pigmentation. Let our experts review and suggest a plan of care, ensuring optimal results.

Micro-Needling Facials

Whether wounds in various skin rejuvenation procedures are perceived or real, the body responds by producing new collagen, elastin, and skin cells to heal the wounds.

Micro-needling infuses nutrients through a mechanical device using multiple sterile needles. This is done after a numbing cream has been applied to make the procedure generally painless.

We perform micro-needling on the face, neck, and décolletage. Likewise, we apply this technique to skin problems to address:

  • Fine Lines
  • Uneven Texture
  • Stretch Marks
  • Acne Scars
  • Large Pores


Platelet-rich plasma consists of two elements: plasma and platelets, a type of blood cell that enables healing throughout the body. Platelets with clotting abilities contain growth factors that trigger cell reproduction.

This stimulates tissue regeneration or healing in treated areas. Platelet-rich plasma is extracted from blood samples and placed into a centrifuge that rapidly spins the sample.

Doing so separates the other components of the blood from the platelets and allows it to form a concentration within the plasma.
