How does Microdermabrasion work?
Micro-crystals are vacuumed through a delicate hand piece, which is held at a precise angle to the skin, producing a skin-polishing peel. In as little as 30 - 40 minutes, this gentle abrasive technique efficiently produces satisfying results. Treatments are applied through a course of weekly sessions. Microdermabrasion enhances the skin’s condition by stimulating collagen production and does what no other available non-surgical treatment can do in combating the signs of aging skin. Most importantly, it is safe to use on all skin types.

Age spots and fine lines are reduced, pores are unclogged, acne is diminished, collagen is stimulated and a more uniform tone is evident. Most clients report that their skin is visibly softer, tighter, smoother and younger-looking, even right after their first treatment.

Who can be treated?
Microdermabrasion is a safe, common, non-surgical procedure however there are people who should not have it. People with active herpes lesions, active acne or rosacea, open sores or lesions, dermatitis, psoriasis, people using Accutane within the last 6 months, eczema, and lupus should not have microdermabrasion

Are there any side effects?
Side-Effects and Risks
Side effects for microdermabrasion are usually temporary and may include swelling and redness for several hours. With devices utilizing suction hand pieces there is a possibility of bruising from the suction, which will usually last several days. The skin will become more sensitive to sun exposure so we recommend using sunscreen following a microdermabrasion session.

How safe is Botox ®... ?
Botox ®is the number one cosmetic procedure being done in the United States and one of the reasons is because of it's excellent safety profile. Extreme side effects are rare and occasional side effects such as bruising, headache and numbness are usually transient. In about one percent over relaxation of muscles may occur in areas not intended. Happily this effect is not permanent and will resolve. There are few contraindications for Botox ®. We do not treat during pregnancy or in those with certain neuromuscular diseases, but for the majority it is safe to use.

How many treatments will be needed ?
Only one treatment is typically needed. We do see new patients for follow up in 2 weeks at that time any touch ups needed will be done.

How long does Botox® last?
In first time areas of injection Botox® typically lasts from 3 to 6 months. With repeat injections Botox® does not lose it's effectiveness and in many it may last longer from 6 to 12 months.

How long do the treatments take?
Treatments are very quick and can be done during most office visits. Effects from the treatment start in about 3 days and reach their peak in about 1week.

What is JUVÉDERM™?
Juvéderm™ is the only hyaluronic acid (HA) filller with FDA approval to last up to one year.* Ask your physician how you can get long-lasting results with Juvéderm™. Juvéderm™ injectable gel is a “next-generation” smooth consistency gel dermal filler that helps to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). Juvéderm™ comes in two formulations—Juvéderm™ Ultra and Juvéderm™ Ultra Plus.

*Juvéderm™ is indicated for injection into the mid to deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds). What does JUVÉDERM™ do?
Juvéderm™ injectable gel temporarily adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face.

How is JUVÉDERM™ injectable gel different from BOTOX® ?
Juvéderm™ injectable gel is a “next-generation” hyaluronic acid dermal filler that provides volume and is used to treat wrinkles and folds resulting from a loss of volume beneath the surface of the skin such as perioral lines and nasolabial folds (lines around your mouth and nose). Juvéderm™ restores your skin's volume for a smooth, natural look and feel. BOTOX ® is not a filler. BOTOX ® relaxes muscle activity and is used to treat moderate to severe lines caused by the dominant frown muscles between the eyebrows (the glabellar area). This allows the two vertical lines between the brows, often referred to as the “11,” to temporarily diminish for a smoother appearance. For important safety information about BOTOX ®, see below.
