Collagen is a naturally occurring protein found in the second layer of skin (the dermis) which “plumps up” the lips, cheeks or other areas. Injections fill out sunken areas and smoothe lines for a rejuvenated look. BOTOX® Cosmetic, or botulinum toxin type A, is a protein used to non-surgically reduce facial wrinkles. It isinjected under the skin into areas surrounding the eyes, forehead and mouth to smooth crow’s feet, frown and worry lines, and lines on the neck.

TITAN™ “Skin Tightening” Laser-Face – Lift
The new TITAN™ technology uses a unique light source to create a thermal profile in the dermis with the goal of tissue tightening of loose skin (laxity, drooping, saggy & wrinkled skin). Titan utilizes a safe, infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin’s surface. This heating can cause immediate collagen contraction. After the procedure, new collagen growth results in further tightening and with tissue remodeling the molecules rejoin and the result is less folds, looseness, and laxity of the skin. TITAN™ has been shown in research trials to work on various areas of laxity (sagging & drooping skin), such as the face, neck, stomach, upper arms, loose skin over cellulite and from laxity over prior weight loss areas to cause “skin and tissue tightening without surgery”, with no downtime, and minimal pain. TITAN™ also works well with other non-ablative technologies like LASER GENESIS™ Skin Rejuvenation.
Laser peeling can be used successfully to reduce the appearance of facial lines such as forehead lines, crow’s feet, smile lines, and vertical lines around the mouth, as well as other inconsistencies on the face. Furthermore, laser peeling is often used in conjunction with other procedures such as eyelid surgery or a facelift.
Chemical peels can improve the appearance and texture of the skin. Retin-A (Retinoic Acid) produces a mild, superficial peel of the skin using a high concentration of Vitamin A. The major benefit is to decrease the effects of sunlight caused by aging by increasing the speed with which the surface cells of the skin are replaced.
Full and vivacious lips have always been recognized as aesthetically important features. Some of us, however, are born with thin, ill-defined lips, or our lips lose their fullness with age. But the appearance of our lips is now within our control. Fine lines and wrinkles, thin lips and a drooping corner of the mouth are all treatable areas.
From the creators of Botox Cosmetic and approved by the FDA in June 2006, Juvéderm™ is injectable, non-surgical gel used to restore the skin’s volume and provide correction of wrinkles and nasolabial folds. Juvéderm™ is a dermal facial filler made of a smooth consistency gel that is composed of cross-linked hyaluronic acid. It maintains corrective results for an average of six months, though some patients have experienced a longer-lasting effect.
Restylane® is an FDA-approved cosmetic dermal filler that adds volume within the skin, for a natural, younger-looking you. Restylane® uses hyaluronic acid to replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to smooth away moderate to severe wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a natural occurring substance in your skin, which provides fullness and elasticity. It is non-surgical and long lasting (usually around six months.)
Radiesse® dermal filler is made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel, and is injected into the skin through a simple and invasive procedure. Radiesse® starts a process called collagenesis, stimulating your body to produce new collagen and encouraging collagen to grow around the injection area, helping your body create its own naturally younger look. Approved by the FDA, RADIESSE® dermal filler is made from a biocompatible substance that’s identical to what’s naturally found in the body. The results are immediate and may last up to a year or more.
Perlane®, like Restylane®, is a dermal filler that is injected into the skin and uses hyaluronic acid to replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to smooth away wrinkles and folds. The main difference is that Perlane has larger gel particles and is intended to be injected deeper within the skin.
Sculptra® is an FDA approved treatment for restoration and/or correction of the signs of facial fat loss, or lipoatrophy , in people with human immunodeficiency virus. Sculptra® is a safe, synthetic, and biocompatible material (poly-L-lactic acid) that is injected below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss. It provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness and volume, and improves the appearance of folds and sunken areas.
