  • Fine lines
  • Small to moderate wrinkles
  • Skin pigmentation problems
  • Acne scars
  • Sun damage
  • Moles
Erbium lasers have less downtime than CO2 lasers because they burn less of the surrounding skin tissue.

Swelling, bruising and redness will usually subside in 1-2 weeks. Darker skin tones can use this laser.

  • Harmony Pixel Laser (fractional erbium)

Botulinum Toxins weaken muscle for about 3 months and may be used to:

    • Soften the appearance of wrinkles
    • Reduce the bulk of a muscle, such as the jaw muscle, and alter the contour of the face
    • Change the shape of the eyes, nose, mouth, or chin
    • Stop sweating
    • Diminish headaches

Many studies have shown Xeomin® and Botox® be equivalent in potency and duration of action.

Fillers can be used to fill in deep grooves or creases, such as the nasolabial folds, or they can be used to build up a structure, such as the cheekbones, nose, chin, or temples.

BELOTERO_LogoBelotero Balance® is a very soft, smooth hyaluronic acid filler.  It is useful for filling in superficial creases in the skin, scars, and bags under the eyes (tear troughs).  It can also be used to augment structures, such as the lips and nose.  Depending on where it is placed, it may last 6-8 months.

RADIESSE_Logo_VolumizeRadiesse (+)® contains calcium hydroxyapatite, which is the same mineral found in bones.  It is a firmer filler and is helpful for adding structure, especially for the cheeks.  With the proper underlying structural support, the skin is lifted and re-suspended as it once was, giving a more youthful appearance.  It is mixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to reduce discomfort during placement.  Results with Radiesse may last up to 2 years.
