Hello! Below is list of aesthetic services I am currently offering in my practice. Thanks for reading. I offer complimentary consults for all aesthetic procedures.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Minimally invasive, 100% autologous personal cell treatment with little to no down time. Most studies showing efficacy use multiple treatments, ie three treatments in three months. Areas to treat include: face, neck, decotage, hands, under eye regions, and scalp. Biofillers can be made to enhance cheek volume, soften nasolabial folds, and volumize lips.

Demonstrated to:

  • Address signs of skin aging

  • Increase skin firmness

  • Increase skin elasticity

  • Improve skin texture

  • Address under eye dark circles

  • Address hair loss and thinning

  • Homogenize skin color

Microneedling
AKA collagen induction therapy: Using a hand-held medical device, your skin is punctured with microneedles to produce a controlled skin injury without serious damage. These micro-injuries cause slight bleeding and set up a wound healing process that initiates collagen production, reduces scars/spots, while tightening the skin. Number of required treatments are dependent on goals, typically ranging from three to six.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Relax and unwind in this hour-long treatment rooted in ancient chinese practices. Acupuncture needles are inserted mainly in the face, boosting collagen production, brightening the complexion, and reducing inflammation. Treatments can include facial gua sha, tiger warmer, facial massage, and microneedling.

Botulinum Toxin A
Botulinum toxin, AKA Botox, is made from the bacteria Clostridium botulinum, and is the most popular aesthetic procedure in the US. Small amounts of the toxin are injected into specific muscles, causing them to relax by inhibiting communication between the nerve and muscle. Results are dose dependent and last about three to six months, Botox is relatively safe and does not result in any adverse side effects.

Demonstrated to treat:

  • Frown lines between the eyes

  • Forehead lines

  • Lines around the eyes

  • Smoker's lines

  • Platysmal bands in the neck

  • Marionette lines

Fillers
Most commonly made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA), fillers diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness to the face. As we age, both fat and bone reduce, leaving behind lines and wrinkles. Sun exposure, lifestyle habits, and hereditary, also impact signs of aging. Our bodies naturally produce HA, a sugar found in joints, cartilage, the fluid around our eyes, skin, etc. HA binds to water like a sponge, filling the space between collagen and elastin fibers. There are a variety of fillers on the market, with an average duration of one year.
