Our treatments are designed to give you a natural, rejuvenated appearance to help you… Renew Your Inspiration!
In recent years, several aesthetic youth rejuvenating techniques have been specifically designed to alleviate wrinkles in the skin. BOTOX® has become THE most popular non-surgical injection in the world. BOTOX®, when painlessly injected, temporarily reduces the appearance of frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet near the eyes. BOTOX® works to alleviate wrinkles by blocking nerve impulses. This action temporarily paralyzes the micro-muscles preventing them from contracting to cause wrinkles. BOTOX® provides an added benefit in that after the injection, the skin is smoother, providing a more refreshed appearance that is immediately noticeable.
Dermal Fillers (Juvéderm®)
Wrinkles are an unwelcome part of the natural aging process. Sun exposure, heredity, lifestyle and poor skin care are factors that can accelerate the aging of the skin, particularly in the face. Juvéderm® is a nonsurgical treatment successfully used to smooth both fine to deep wrinkles of the face.
Juvéderm® can create a fuller, more youthful appearance and has quickly become a favorite among cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists throughout the country. Juvéderm® is an injectable gel filler that is safe, effective, and can last up to one year depending upon the areas treated. It is a quick in-office procedure that produces immediate, beautiful results.
Juvéderm® is made of a complex sugar substance, hyaluronic acid, found naturally within the body. Because it mimics a naturally composed substance, no testing is required prior to your treatment and Juvéderm® can be used for all skin types and tones.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Blepharoplasty can rejuvenate puffy, sagging or tired-looking eyes by removing excess fat, skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. It may be performed for cosmetic reasons or to improve sight by lifting droopy eyelids out of the patient’s field of vision. The procedure is performed with local anesthesia and lasts 45 minutes to a few hours depending on how much work is done. Incisions are made along the eyelids in inconspicuous places (in the creases of the upper lids, and just below the lashes on the lower lids). The surgeon removes excess tissue through these incisions and then stitches them closed with fine sutures. In the case that no skin needs to be removed, the surgeon will likely perform a transconjunctival blepharoplasty, where the incision is made inside the lower eyelid and there are no visible scars. The effects of blepharoplasty can last for a long time and are sometimes even permanent.
