JUVÉDERM® is an injectable gel made of a smooth hyaluronic acid. Over time the body looses hyaluronic acid and reduces its production, resulting in wrinkles and folds in the face. Juvederm is used to smooth the face and add volume to the lips giving you a more youthful appearance.
With Juvederm there is very little to no downtime, though some patients do experience minimal bruising.

This process continues for several months, which extends the initial effect of Radiesse. The natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients. Common areas for injection are: smile lines,marionette lines, corners of the mouth and jowls. RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler
Sculptra Aesthetic is the latest injectable remedy for shallow to deep contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles. Sculptra works in a continuing manner in order to replace the collagen lost through the process of aging. The loss of collagen in the face results in lines, wrinkles and folds. Sometimes called a "liquid face lift," Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable made from poly-l-lactic acid that replaces lost volume by stimulating new collagen production. Sculptra Aesthetic
The treatment is most commonly used on deep folds between the nose and mouth called "smile lines", or the wrinkled lines framing the mouth called "marionette lines", sunken cheeks, sunken eyelids or "tear troughs".
Sculptra is not a quick fix. Sculptra requires up to four injection sessions that are spaced out four weeks apart. The smoothing effect usually lasts up to two years, although results vary depending upon the initial severity of the facial wrinkles and the desired effect.

A phenol peel is the deepest and most effective chemical peel available. It is used mainly to treat patients with severe facial wrinkles or areas of skin that have been damaged by sun exposure or pre-cancerous growths. A phenol peel penetrates deep within the skin to remove the outer layers where wrinkles and discoloration lie. Results of a phenol peel are frequently superior to other peels and modalities as the skin is forced into creating newer and thicker collagen. Only one treatment is required, and results can last many years.
Prior to a phenol peel, skin should be properly prepped with a medical grade skin care system. This will help ensure and maintain the best results.
A phenol peel is done under a general anesthesia at an outpatient surgery center. The procedure takes 30-45 minutes. After the procedure your face will be swollen, red, and crusted. Over several days, your face will become stiff, dark, and begin to flake. After ten days peeling and flaking will be complete, and you will be left with healthy, smooth, bright red skin. This sunburned appearance will take two to three months to subside. You will be presentable in 2-3 weeks with makeup. It is especially important that you always use a sunblock.
