For those of you who are considering our nonsurgical cosmetic procedures for the first time, I understand that the idea of it may get in your way. Mainly, you may not want anyone to know that you’ve been in for treatment.
So, here are a few first-time procedures that no one will know that you’ve had (and that you will forget that you’ve had by the time you’ve left our office). With no incisions, anesthesia or downtime, your treatment will be our little secret, if you want it to be. All that will be obvious is your rested and youthful look.
Botox: Worry lines, frown lines, laugh or smile lines, crow’s feet …these are all “dynamic” wrinkles caused from years of living and using facial muscles to show expression. The more emotion we show, the deeper the wrinkles and lines can be. Botox injections can safely and effectively soften lines and reduce wrinkles. Botox is also known as “cosmetic denervation” – a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that many patients have come to depend on to show results in a few days. The procedure takes under ten minutes, too.
Dermal fillers: Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane (Contour, Defyne, Refyne, Silk and Lyft) and Voluma are a few of the FDA-approved treatments that restore fullness and contour that has diminished with age. These treatments are quick and easy, and show immediate results in all areas of the face, including cheeks, mouth, chin, nose and lips, as well as the hands.
Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is simple, convenient and popular among patients showing early signs of aging, sun exposure and other facial imperfections. It not only exfoliates the skin’s surface, but also promotes new cell growth in the basal, or deepest layer of the skin. It also cleans the pores and stimulates collagen networking to further improve the skin’s texture. After the treatment, your skin will have a new fresh-looking glow.
Intense Pulsed Light: If your facial skin has lost its youthful glow, Intense Pulsed Light Rejuvenation can help to restore a vibrant appearance. The procedure delivers broadband light through the skin, helping to decrease redness, pigmentation, lines and pore size, and improve the overall texture and tone of your skin. IPL can be used on the face, neck, chest, hands and legs. Also known as a “photofacial,” the noninvasive treatment treats imperfections including birthmarks, spider veins, rosacea, fine wrinkles, sun and age spots, vascular lesions and acne and acne scarring.

So many breakthrough treatments are on the horizon, and as always, my goal is to provide you with the most effective state-of-the-art cosmetic care in the area.
I know, from treating you, that fullness from fat, crepey skin and visible band lines cause plenty of frustration. We have five ways to minimize the appearance of these conditions, so you have choices. There is no need to feel bad about your neck any longer.
First, the latest FDA-approved treatment is Kybella, a series of injections that eradicates fat cells permanently from the chin and neck area. We have seen great success with this procedure. Then, there is Exilis Ultra 360, which tightens, firms and tones loose and sagging skin and reshapes and melts stubborn fatty deposits. It is perfect for the chin and neck, as well as many other parts of your face and body. Thermage CPT, known as a nonsurgical facelift, is the most effective lift treatment for a multitude of concerns, yielding dramatic results without incisions and recuperation. Next, you can choose Fraxel Repair, a laser skin rejuvenation treatment that targets and improves sagging neck skin. Finally, we offer SmartLipo Triplex for the area under the chin. With this laser procedure, your fat cells will be melted and sucked away, leaving a newly shaped silhouette.

At some point, you may notice tiny red spider veins criss-crossing certain areas of your face. These small broken veins generally appear on your nose and cheeks, giving you a ruddy and haggard look. They are fairly common, and they often return.
We have two treatments that show terrific results in reducing the presence of these veins. Both Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and the Diolite laser enhance and rejuvenate skin, lessen the lines and redness and leave you looking more youthful, without any peeling or sloughing.
Here is how they can help you look your best:
IPL: If your facial skin has lost its youthful glow, Intense Pulsed Light rejuvenation can help to restore a healthy-looking and vibrant appearance. The procedure delivers broadband light through the skin, helping to decrease redness, pigmentation, lines and pore size, and improve the overall texture and tone of your skin. In addition to your face, IPL can be used on your neck, chest, hands and legs.
Also known as a “photofacial,” the noninvasive treatment will not damage the surface of your skin. The light is directed to the deeper parts of the skin (dermis), while the outside layer (epidermis) is left untouched.
IPL photorejuvenation works beautifully on facial spider veins and also improves imperfections including rosacea, fine wrinkles, sun and age spots.
Diolite: This gentle laser pinpoints the skin’s target area with extreme precision, helping to erase vascular and pigmented imperfections while leaving surrounding tissue untouched. Unlike older lasers that could cause pain, blistering, oozing and crusting, Diolite produces the same results without the uncomfortable side effects. Your skin will emerge healthy-looking and refreshed.
Diolite is an extremely effective treatment for eliminating superficial facial spider veins. It can also help to minimize cherry angiomas (raised red mole-like lesions) and small brown spots such as freckles, sun spots and pigmented keratoses found anywhere on the body.
Please call my office to schedule a complimentary consultation. I look forward to tailoring a treatment plan just for you.

Do you have a stomach that just won’t disappear, no matter what you do? Or saddle bags that keep you from wearing jeans? And, are you tired of wrapping yourself up on the beach and dressing to hide the parts of your body that you don’t like?
It could be time for SmartLipo Triplex. A minimally invasive method for contouring your body and removing unwanted fat, this laser treatment virtually melts fat cells and suctions them away, for good. Body contouring is currently the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure, and it provides a sure way to achieve your ideal body shape.
SmartLipo Triplex has fewer side effects than traditional liposuction and offers precise high-definition body sculpting that is perfect for waistlines and abdominal areas. With just one treatment, we can target localized pockets of fat, with immediate results.
For men and women, the laser procedure has been designed to treat specific areas of fat in the midsection as well as the back, chin, inner and outer thighs, hips, buttocks, upper arms, face, back of neck, male breasts and pubic mound.
Smart Lipo Triplex can transform the way you see yourself. Call to schedule a complimentary consultation, and I’ll devise an individual plan just for you.
See you soon.
