Collagen injections are used to treat minor skin imperfections like laugh lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. It could also be used to create fuller lips and cheeks, and to treat areas of the chest, back, and neck. Collagen is a natural protein found in skin tissue that is essential for skin strength and elasticity. Over time, collagen breaks down which causes skin to begin to wrinkle and sag. Many turn to collagen to reduce these aging effects and as it is a natural protein, there are relatively few side effects associated with its use in cosmetic procedures. Most treatments take less than an hour and can be accomplished during your lunch break.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure using a laser light to target melanin in the hair. The intense heat of the laser on the hair follicle removes and slows the regrowth of unwanted hair. Treatment locations include legs, armpits, upper lip, chin and bikini line. However, it is possible to treat unwanted hair in almost any area of the body. In most cases, laser hair removal slows hair regrowth, but it takes several treatments to provide an extended “hair-free” period.
Microdermabrasion (Skin Resurfacing)
Microdermabrasion involves resurfacing the skin to reduce the effects of aging, and improve wrinkles, skin texture, and color on your topmost layer of skin. A wonderful alternative or complement to chemical peels, the DiamondTome™ Skin Resurfacing treatment is non-invasive, pain-free, and requires no down time after treatment. Skin resurfacing improves the appearance of skin by removing its topmost layer, vitalizing the elastic tissue beneath the surface resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance.
Chemical peels are used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck, and hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin to create a peeling effect, and leaves the skin smooth with less wrinkles. Many use chemical peels to treat wrinkles caused by sun damage, aging and hereditary factors, improve the appearance of mild scarring, and to treat certain types of acne.
Cosmetic Botox™ Treatment
BOTOX™ is a simple, nonsurgical treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. Small injections are made directly into the muscles that cause frown lines, and within days, there’s a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows that can last up to 4 months.
Spider Vein Treatment
Spider veins are small superficial blood vessels that commonly occur in the legs, but can be found on other areas of the body. Treatments include laser therapy and fine needle electrocautery ablation.
Sublative Rejuvenation is a unique procedure which uses radio frequency waves to deliver an effective but controlled partial thickness turnover (or rejuvenation) of the skin cells for the treatment of wrinkles, scars, large pores and better texture of the skin. Usually a series of 3 to 5 treatments are needed for optimal results.
