Facial Fillers

Dermal facial filler injections that fill out lines and wrinkles by using fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm.

They are commonly used for lip augmentation, wrinkles and removal of scars.

Procedure Time: Approximately 10-20 minutes

What makes the Fraxel laser family different from traditional lasers is it treats only fractions of the skin, allowing surrounding area to remain intact for faster healing. One of the most advanced laser treatments for skin available today, Fraxel is used to treat sun damaged skin, uneven pigmentation, and fine lines in just a few painless treatments.

Procedure Time: Approximately 20-25 minutes

Unlike traditional liposuction, Zerona uses the Erchonia LipoLASER to emulsify adipose tissue, which can appear when fatty material is present. Externally applied, the low level laser is focused on the targeted areas so that excess waste can pass through the body in the normal course of detoxification.

Procedure Time: Approximately 40 minutes

Laser Hair Removal

A precise combination of laser energy and radio frequency energy travels through skin to reach the hair follicle where it is destroyed, thus preventing future hair growth and leaving surrounding skin unmarred. The laser works by seeking out darker hair against lighter skin so the treatment is not recommended for lighter hair.

Procedure Time: Approximately 10-20 minutes

SmoothShapes uses Photomology, a trademarked technology that combines laser, light, vacuum, and contoured rollers to attack cellulite directly at its source. The engorged fat cells from the hips, abdomen, waistline, and buttocks are treated and most patients say it feels like a deep tissue massage. Some redness and tingling is to be expected but results should be immediate.

Procedure Time: Approximately 20 minutes

Whichever procedure from the menu you choose to move forward with, make sure you have time to eat lunch before you return to the grind. And when you get back to the office, be prepared for the compliments to pour in.

Plan accordingly.
