Fraxel™ is a unique noninvasive laser therapy designed to dramatically improve skin texture and pigmentation, including the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, surgical scars, and sun damage. Fraxel™ utilizes fractional resurfacing technology, where only a small fraction of the skin receives the laser light. The treatment delivers a series of microscopic laser spots, while simultaneously preserving areas of unaffected, healthy skin. The healthy cells in the untouched spots promote rapid healing of the entire area, resulting in faster recovery time and minimal side effects. The result is softer, smoother and healthier skin without an uncomfortable healing period.

Sulptra® counteracts the loss of fat beneath the skin (a condition called lipoatrophy). Sculptra® is injected into the deep dermis layer of the skin to improve the appearance of sunken cheeks, hollow eyes, indentations and wrinkles. Its main component is an alpha hydroxy acid that has been used for 20 years in surgical products such as dissolvable sutures. Results can last up to two years.

ArteFill® is a non-absorbable wrinkle filler used to correct smile lines. It is the only FDA-approved injectable smile line treatment of its kind. ArteFill uses a unique dual-acting formula made of a combination of 20% ArteFill Precision-Filtered Microspheres™ and 80% ArteFill Purified Bovine Collagen™. The result is the immediate visible correction of facial wrinkles and folds in as few as one or two treatment sessions with no downtime.
As we age, the natural collagen and elastin fibers supporting our skin break down, creating wrinkles. The ArteFill microspheres replace these aging fibers and provide permanent support and volume to the skin, making ArteFill outlast virtually any other wrinkle filler.

A special solution is injected into the problem area over several treatment sessions. Over the course of treatment, the fat cells absorb these chemicals, harden, break down, and finally dissolve harmlessly into the body. The results can be dramatic! Even better, there is no need for anesthesia, no downtime, and few side effects. Each treatment takes less than an hour, and some patients see improvement in as little as two treatments.
Exilis is an FDA approved non-surgical cosmetic treatment that reduces fat in targeted areas of the body and tightens loose, sagging skin for an enhanced aesthetic appearance.
The Exilis uses radio frequency energy to volumetrically heat the deeper tissues, causing the fat cells to melt. The Exilis also tightens the loose skin by rejuvenating the collagen.
The patient satisfaction rate is high. There is improvement following each treatment, however, the optimal results are achieved after a total of 4 treatments. The treatment is safe, painless and takes approximately 45 minutes.
The Exilis melts fat and tightens the skin in a safe convenient procedure with no downtime.

Xeomin is a form of botulinum toxin type A that can be injected into the muscles just beneath the skin to reduce facial lines and wrinkles. Particularly effective in treating deep frown lines between the eyebrows, Xeomin has received FDA approval.
Like other types of botulinum treatments, Xeomin prevents muscles from contracting. However, Xeomin is different from its predecessors in that it contains no additives, which may decrease a patient's antibody reaction. If the immune system is not creating antibodies to fight it, the treatment will be much more successful.
Results of Xeomin treatment are typically evident in one week and last between three and six months.
