Botox was approved as an aesthetic treatment for frown lines in 2002.. Since then, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau have emerged. While similar, there are differences in the timing of onset, how much the products spread in the skin, and how long the effects last.
In addition to forehead lines and crow’s feet, they can help reduce a gummy smile, overactive jaw muscles, lines around the lips and sagging neck skin. MORE
As it is both efficient and safe, microneedling has become one of our most popular skin rejuvenation procedures. As we age, our body loses collagen at a rate of 1% per year. To combat this, microneedling stimulates new healthy collagen production, which then attracts elastin and hyaluronic acid to the area. Microneedling helps with scar removal, skin tone, texture, discoloration, stretch marks and enlarged pores.
Traditional microneedling uses very fine needles on a handheld “pen” device, to create channels in the skin. These channels enhanced absorption of serums applied to the skin. The glide that allows the “pen” to move smoothly over the skin is oftentimes hyaluronic acid. Another option is to use your body’s own blood products as a glide which results in faster and better healing and collagen formation.MORE
Another more advanced collagen induction method is RF-microneedling. This combines microneedling with radiofrquency energy to heat the deep collagen tissue. Hence giving targeted stimulation while protecting the surface layers of the skin from damage. This cutting edge technology provides an alternative to a facelift and other cosmetic surgeries or lasers. The best part about microneedling is that your body does all the work of new collagen production. Therefore the results are long-lasting. MORE
Chemical peels treat acne, scarring and skin discoloration, improve skin tone and texture, and reduce signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles.
Peels come in 3 classes: Superficial, medium and deep. Because superficial peels penetrate the surface layer of the skin, they are useful for acne, dark spots and oily skin. Medium depth peels treat both active acne and the resulting scarring. They get deeper into the skin. Deep peels are the most aggressive type and are mainly for scar treatment, lines and wrinkling. Although the deeps peels produce more dramatic results, they are not suitable for darker skin types. MORE

There are many types of non-cancerous, but unsightly moles. Mole removal is a quick and simple procedure. In a “shave” removal, we use a small scalpel to remove the mole. Other mole removal techniques include cryotherapy (freezing), electrodesiccation (lightly charring the surface) or lasers. Removal is a simple solution for moles that are uncomfortable or cause cosmetic imperfections. MORE
