Top Reasons Why Winter is the Best Time of the Year for BOTOX

If you’re considering getting BOTOX to rejuvenate your appearance, know that the timing of your treatment is key. BOTOX injections last for about three to four months, after which you can come back to our office for a follow-up treatment. So, many patients receive BOTOX treatments throughout the year. That said, winter is considered the optimal time for BOTOX injections, and here’s why:

Look Your Best for Holiday Festivities

With winter comes the holiday season. For most people, the holidays include spending time with friends and family that you may not often see during the rest of the year. So, it’s no wonder that people want to look their best before traveling home for the holidays or simply attending the annual parties. BOTOX can smooth out facial lines and wrinkles before the holidays are in full swing, giving you a confidence boost throughout all of the festivities.  Continue reading “Top Reasons Why Winter is the Best Time of the Year for BOTOX”

PRP for Hair Growth

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a regenerative treatment that has become popular for a range of applications, both cosmetic and medical. From improving the health of your skin to relieving pain from injuries, PRP offers powerful benefits.

Improve Your Neck Lines with Radiesse

The body’s natural aging process causes the skin to become thinner and less elastic. This goes not only for the skin on the face but also for the skin on the neck. So, if you’re noticing lines and wrinkles appearing on your neck, you’re not alone. But, with the help of the longstanding injectable Radiesse, it’s possible to safely and effectively eliminate neck lines. 

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is an injectable treatment that’s been FDA-approved since 2007. Its main ingredient is calcium hydroxylapatite or CaHA. CaHA provides immediate contouring after the treatment and lasting collagen and elastin production. Since the Radiesse formula stimulates the production of these essential proteins, it leads to tighter, stronger, and more elastic skin long after the initial injection.   Continue reading “Improve Your Neck Lines with Radiesse”

Using CoolSculpting to Get Rid of Love Handles

Are you feeling frustrated by love handles? Love handles refer to the excess fat that can accumulate at the sides of the waist; love handles may hang over the waistband of pants and become more visible when you wear tight clothing. 

Many people struggle with love handles despite being at their goal weight. Diet and exercise often aren’t effective for pockets of stubborn fat, including love handles. In these cases, CoolSculpting is an excellent option to slim down the waist and hips for a more toned physique. 

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved device to treat excess, stubborn fat in the flanks, thighs, abdomen, back, upper arms, under the buttocks, and around the breasts. The CoolSculpting device delivers controlled laser technology at precise levels to the treatment area. The cool laser targets the fat cells under the skin to freeze and eradicate them.

The Powerful Benefits of Morpheus8

Morpheus8 is the most advanced aesthetic treatment on the market. This innovative, minimally-invasive treatment targets the skin’s deep layers for a dramatic improvement to imperfections including skin laxity, deep wrinkles, scarring, sun damage, stretch marks, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, and more. Compared to other devices used today to improve the appearance of the skin, Morpheus8 provides more powerful results with less discomfort and recovery downtime.  

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8, which is technically called Morpheus Fractionated Radiofrequency, is a skin rejuvenation procedure that combines microneedling with fractionated radiofrequency energy and uses subdermal adipose remodeling (SARD). The Morpheus8 device features a matrix of micropins that penetrates the dermis and heats up in a precise, controlled manner. This targets the deep skin tissue to not only stimulate collagen production, but also improve the appearance of the patient’s natural collagen. The result is contoured, rejuvenated skin with a more even tone and texture.  Continue reading “The Powerful Benefits of Morpheus8”

What is Collagen?
