Everytime we laugh, frown, smile or squint, expression muscles contract, folding and pulling the skin that sits atop the muscle. Years of repeated muscles contractions cause the overlying skin to form permanent creases, known as dynamic wrinkles. Botox acts as a neuromodulator, temporarily relaxing the muscle activity that leads to these fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is the most popular non-invasive cosmetic treatment in the world and the only FDA approved treatment to reduce frown lines and crow’s feet. Botox treatments will rejuvenate the area around the eyes, brow and forehead while providing great results for forehead frown lines, crow’s feet, lip wrinkles, mouth frown and orange peel chins. It can also halt the formation of dynamic wrinkles in young adults.
Excessive sweating (also known as Hyperhidrosis) can occur anywhere on the body but is most often encountered on the hands, feet or underarms. Botox (or Dysport) blocks the chemical transmitter that causes sweating. The injection of Botox in the armpit area blocks the chemical transmitter that causes sweat for about 3 to 6 months.
Bruxism is a condition in which you excessively grind, gnash, or clench your teeth. To treat this condition, a few tiny injections of Botox are administered into the main muscle responsible for grinding, the masseter muscle. Botox effectively weakens this muscle but does not affect eating, chewing or talking.
This injection is similar to botox. Dysport injections relaxes the muscles under your skin so the area treated becomes smoother and gives the face a much more youthful appearance. Dysport is used primarily for wrinkle treatment in the face area. It will help relax muscles in the face that create unwanted expressions, such as crows feet, frown lines between the brows and lines in the forehead.
Kybella is an formulation of deoxycholic acid that is injected in the chin. This treatment solution destroys fat cells and will improve the appearance of fat beneath the chin, also known as “double chin!”

High Intensity Focal Ultrasound, or HIFU, is a procedure that stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery—without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. HIFU bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen. This can procedure is used for to help your skin texture and appearance and also is used for uplifting and tightening.
The “ultrasonic threads” is a combination of both PDO threads and HIFU where you can get the best “of both worlds” so to speak. HIFU can target 3 depths on the face for example, the deepest being the SMAS. The SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system) is a layer of tissue deep within the skin and subcutaneous tissue. It is one of the most important support structures for the face. The manipulation of this anatomic structure changes the appearance of the face. We will first use the HIFU at its deepest capacity (where the threads can not reach) delivering its energy to the SMAS and then use the PDO threads to stimulate collagen. The combination of both treatments will get patients outstanding results!
A chemical peels are designed to change the superficial and/or deep layers of the skin to give it a more youthful appearance.

The PDO thread (polydioxanone) lift is a non-invasive treatment that can be used anywhere in the body to create lifting and tightening. Novathreads are hypodermic needles preloaded with a synthetic PDO absorbable suture. PDO sutures are surgical sutures that are used to perform cardiac surgery. All sutures are FDA-approved and PDO sutures are one of the safest materials that can be used in the body. Our skin is excellent at repairing itself, and by inserting the Novathreads underneath the skin to lift the loose skin, the skin will heal itself by creating new collagen naturally! Main areas of treatment are lips, upper lips, chin, eyebrow lift, face, neck, face and neck, knees, chest, abdomen and thighs to improve cellulite.
Your skin will fully absorb the Novathread within 4 to 6 months without leaving any scar tissue. While the sutures are underneath the skin, however, your skin gently reacts to the skin creating a “selective inflammatory response” to produce collagen to create a longer-lasting result: This principle is behind a lot of aesthetic procedures (such as fractionated lasers, skin tightening treatments and microneedling).
A sample of your blood is collected in the PRF tubes, the spun in order to separate your red blood cells from everything else. The final product is the PRF which contains your own platelets, white blood cells and mesenchymal stem cells. This is placed on the face and micro-needled. This helps the skin look vibrant, reduces the fine lines, reduces pores, dark spots, and gives back a more youthful skin using your own growth factors!
PRF can also be injected under the eyes to tighten and brighten the skin, and also injected in the lips for a more natural lip enhancement.
