Cosmetic Treatment for Contoured Cheeks

Check! Non-surgical cheek augmentation is a popular trend recently. Patients are looking for more defined cheeks. We can achieve this with fillers such as JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC or RADIESSE®. The treatment has minimal downtime and will give you beautiful countoured cheeks that will make your face look perfect this holiday season!

Cosmetic Treatments to Fix Dark Circles

Tired of dark circles? Concealer just not cutting it? As we get older we lose fat in our faces, causing volume loss. This is common especially by our orbital rim (under eyes) causing hollowness. Our eyelids are also thin, which causes the appearance of “dark circles.” Fillers such JUVÉDERM® or BELOTERO BALANCE® are now being used in our tear troughs to correct this issue.

Cosmetic Treatment for Luscious Lips

Full lips have been ALL over the media the past few months, and this trend is not going anywhere! Everyone is looking for “fuller lips” or a more “pronounced upper lip.” Fillers win again as a treatment of choice. If you are looking for a more natural look JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is for you! Lipstick lines making your lip liner bleed? Look no further – JUVÉDERM to the rescue! We can also treat those superficial lines around the mouth with this product. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC also contains lidocaine (a numbing agent) creating more comfort during treatment. In terms of longevity, the FDA has recently approved JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC to last a full year in the lips! Pucker up!

Prevention and Maintenance: The Secret to Gorgeous, Wrinkle-Free Skin

Aesthetic medicine is always changing with new techniques or treatments, but prevention and maintenance will always be key! Neurotoxin treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, or XEOMIN® are still the mainstay treatment options for those frown lines. Recently, we are seeing patients in their mid to late twenties who are having neurotoxin treatments as “wrinkle-free prevention.” Whether you’re in your twenties or your sixties, the take home point here is to make sure you are either preventing or maintaining wrinkles with neurotoxin treatment every three to four months.

Cosmetic Treatment for Double Chins

Do you have the double chin blues? KYBELLA® is your new best friend! This new injectable treatment melts away submental fat (aka the fat under your chin that is incredibly bothersome to many people). We will be offering it in the new year to our patients, keep a look out in our social media and your emails for the availability!
