We look at your face from the inside out. Knowing how to make subtle changes in your outward appearance requires that we understand exactly how your muscles work beneath the surface of your skin. And, the muscles of your face are some of the most complex.
Some facial muscles work against each other—certain ones lift a given feature while other ones push it downward. The outer part of the eyebrow, for instance, is lifted up by forehead muscles and pulled down by squinting muscles. This push-pull, though, presents a clever option. If we want only the muscle that does the lifting to do its job, we can use Botox to relax the muscle that does the pulling. The result is a nonsurgical brow lift, a treatment of a few simple injections that raises and shapes the brow area and also corrects forehead lines, crow’s feet and frown lines.
Often, the lift measures only about 2 millimeters, but the difference is striking. You will look rejuvenated and refreshed immediately, without undergoing traditional brow or forehead surgery.

When we restore volume to your cheeks, we look at the position of your eyes. When we reduce fat in your abdomen, we take your hips into account. Nothing is done in isolation. Balance defines our work.
Take, for instance, the shape of the chin and jaw, which also changes with age and should not be missed when treating other areas of the face. Like other features, the chin and jaw lose volume over time and benefit from injectable fillers, instantly. Augmenting the chin and jawline can easily be done while redefining the cheeks with Voluma, Restylane, Radiesse, Juvederm or Perlane. In one visit, your lower face will look youthful and plump and shadows that can linger around the corners of the mouth will also be diminished. The effects are subtle, but transforming.
Call us for a complimentary consultation to talk about how we can infuse your look with new balance and beauty, without surgery and without anyone really knowing.

“I hate my nose,” is hardly an uncommon statement. So many people are unhappy with this prominent facial feature, but they don’t want to endure the pain, anesthesia, recuperation or cost of rhinoplasty surgery. The nose, because of its central position on the face, can overwhelm your entire look, causing you to lose confidence and self-esteem. While the surgical “nose job” used to be the only way to correct bumps, bulges and other nasal irregularities, now we are able to conceal flaws in one simple office visit.
Injectable fillers are a remarkable alternative to surgery for hiding humps, droopy tips, bridge irregularities and other flaws. The ultimate goal of nose reshaping is to create a nose that looks natural and blends harmoniously with your other facial features. We do this by disguising the irregularity rather than removing it surgically. While rhinoplasty can achieve more significant and pronounced results, today’s advanced injectables are easy, long-lasting and safe.
Injectable fillers such as Radiesse, Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm are injected into targeted areas of the nose to correct imperfections and reshape the contours. Nasolabial folds are also injected to restore volume to this area of the face and to complement the reshaped nose. You will be able to see the transformation immediately.
Call us today for a complimentary consultation to discuss your specific concerns. We are happy to help you look and feel your best.
We love our collagen and elastin. But as we age, these structural proteins start to dwindle, and as they do, our faces lose their volume and bounce. Worse, wrinkles, lines and folds form, too, since the support behind the skin is no longer there to keep it stretched and firm.
You are probably not feeling so happy reading this. But, as you’ve come to know, we can help. Using advanced dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane and Perlane, we can lift and contour facial features, restoring your natural fullness exactly where you need us to. Nonsurgical and virtually pain-free, this “liquid facelift” can reduce wrinkles, lines and folds, create a more rested and fresh look, and return your face to its curved former self.
Sometimes, we “lift” the entire face; sometimes, we target specific spots, such as bags under the eyes, marionette lines, sagging eye lids, jowls and flattened cheeks. We can even disguise bumps on the nose, a method that will keep you out of the operating room and free of anesthesia, recuperation and downtime.
The fillers that we use are made from substances that your body produces naturally. For more information about this quick treatment and its immediate results, call our office to schedule a complimentary consultation.
Meantime, use that sunscreen…and remember to reapply often.
See you soon.
