CoolSculpting® is a breakthrough, non-invasive procedure that uses patented cooling technology to eliminate fat without surgery. This clinically proven technique is designed to selectively reduce the fat in problem areas that have proven resistant to reduction through diet and exercise. CoolSculpting® gently cools targeted cells in the body to induce a natural, controlled elimination of these unwanted fat cells.
CoolSculpting® is the first and only nonsurgical procedure to selectively reduce fat layers in problem areas that include muffin tops, love handles, back fat, thigh saddle bags and inner thigh fat. With this non-invasive procedure there are no needles, no incisions, no need for anesthesia and no recovery time. The CoolSculpting® treatment is convenient for most patients lasting 1-3 hours. During their treatment they can read, work on their laptop computer, listen to music, watch movies, or just relax. Most patients typically resume their routine activities, including returning to work and exercise regimens on the same day as the procedure. Visit the CoolSculpting® website for more information
Chemical & Micro Peels
Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin to make skin smoother, reduce scarring and remove blemishes. Ranging from mild to strong, there are three types of chemical peels: alphahydroxy acid (AHA), trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and phenol. The strength of each peel is tailored to the patient. Peels can be combined with other procedures, such as facelifts, for additional improvement to skin.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription drug that, when injected, temporarily paralyzes muscles. It contains a purified and safe form of botulinum toxin A, which is produced by the microbe that causes botulism. Manufactured by Allergan, Inc., it is used to treat permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin that are formed by the continual contraction of facial muscles. In addition to its cosmetic applications, it is used to treat a number of medical problems, including excessive sweating, overactive bladder, neck spasms, crossed eyes, chronic back and jaw pain, and migraines.
Sculptra® is an injectable product that corrects the signs of facial fat loss (lipoatrophy) by restoring lost volume in the skin. Lipoatrophy can result in sunken cheeks, indentations and hollow eyes. Injected into the deep dermis layer of the skin, Sculptra® provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness, improving the appearance of folds and sunken areas.
Sculptra's main component is an alpha hydroxy acid called poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA. It is safe, synthetic (artificially created), biocompatible (can be used harmlessly in the body), biodegradable (able to be broken down in the body) and long-lasting.
Restylane® is an injectable filler, used for smoothing out facial wrinkles. It is a biodegradable gel composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance occurring within the body. In addition to adding fullness to the skin, Restylane® attracts water molecules to the site of the injection, further enhancing its effectiveness.
JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel
JUVÉDERM® is a safe, FDA-approved formula that lasts up to one year. It contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to minimize the mild discomfort that is sometimes associated with receiving an injection. The injection of hyaluronic acid-a naturally occurring substance in the skin that adds volume and hydration-is administered directly to targeted areas to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds while also smoothing the skin. It is an effective technique for restoring a youthful plumpness to the skin.
JUVÉDERM XC Voluma™
JUVÉDERM XC Voluma™ is a new, FDA-approved dermal filler formulated specifically to add volume to the face around the cheeks and chin. This is the only injectable gel created to provide a subtle, natural enhancement to the mid-face, addressing changes in definition that occur over time. JUVÉDERM XC Voluma™ can help restore more youthful contours by plumping up the area that so often loses volume as part of the aging process. It can also return a firmer shape to the jaw line when some softening has set in.
Obagi® is a brand of skin care products designed to develop and maintain healthy skin through an advanced line of cleansers, toners, eye creams, sunscreens, serums and other beneficial products. These products, available only from a physician, have been used for many years to improve the appearance of the skin, reduce the signs of aging and treat and prevent some of the most common skin conditions, including acne, rosacea and more.
Obagi® skin products can also be used in conjunction with Obagi® procedures, such as the Blue Peel, for maximum results and especially to repair severely damaged skin. Your doctor will develop a customized treatment plan for you based on a thorough evaluation of your individual skin condition.
Full, natural-looking eyelashes can now be achieved through a prescription treatment called LATISSE®. LATISSE® is the first and only eyelash treatment approved by the FDA to help grow longer, fuller and darker eyelashes and treat hypotrichosis, a condition that includes having inadequate or not enough eyelashes.
This prescription medication is applied topically to the base of the eyelashes once a day, after makeup and contact lenses have been removed and any other skincare products have already been applied. While it does not replace mascara, LATISSE® offers an attractive complement to help further enhance full, long and beautiful lashes.
