Facial Fillers provide the smooth skin you deserve. Facial fillers are our most popular cosmetic treatment. A smooth, natural gel is injected under the skin to instantly smooth away wrinkles and add volume. Filler treatments last 6 months to 1 year.
Botox prevents muscles from contracting, therefore eliminating constant creasing and wrinkles. The 40 units special lasts 3-4 months.
Botox® Cosmetic treatment is a safe, simple, non-surgical procedure that smooths deep persistent facial lines and relaxes the muscles, often used to treat the area between the eyebrows and to soften crow's feet. It provides one of the best wrinkle treatments available when administered in the upper face; however, Botox® Cosmetic is just as effective in lower facial areas, providing a smoothing and lifting outcome. Prior to being recognized as a cosmetic procedure, Botox® Cosmetic has been prescribed medically for decades and is FDA approved for the improvement of lines and wrinkles.
How is Botox® Different From Restylane and Other Fillers?
Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein that is diluted to a safe level before use. It works by relaxing the tiny muscles related to expression lines. As the muscles relax, the overlying skin becomes smoother and less wrinkled. Botox® Cosmetic treatments are delivered by injection with a micro needle and are administered in about 10 minutes. No anesthetic or sedation is required.
The results become visible within three to six days, with the maximum effect noted at two weeks and usually lasting three to four months. Over time, if Botox® Cosmetic is given regularly, the number of treatments may decrease to three or two per year.
Restylane, like Juvéderm®, is a dermal filler made of hylaronic acid which is injected into areas of volume loss. It helps to restore a smoother appearance to the face by adding volume.
Juvéderm® is a dermal filler derived from hyaluronic acid, which is present in all living organisms. Once injected into the skin, it adds volume and restores a smoother appearance to the face. Juvéderm® XC contains the anesthetic Lidicaine, to minimize any injection discomfort. It has been FDA approved for medium to deep wrinkles and folds, such as the ones around the nose or the corners of the mouth.
Juvéderm is one of the longest-lasting facial fillers available. With just one treatment you'll get smooth, natural-looking results that last up to a year. The Hylasross technology provides better volume and longer-lasting results.
Juvéderm® XC is proven to deliver safe, long-lasting results. The effects in the naso-labial folds last at least a year. Having a touch-up treatment before the product has fully dissipated can enhance the lasting effect.
Unlike PRP which uses your own cells to rejuvenate your skin and increase collagen, using amniotic stem cell immediately increases the rejuvination process by using more youthful cells, hence the name "baby face facial".
Stem cells contain growth factors that may help to heal wounds, repair damaged tissues, regenerate aged skin, and reinvigorate growth of skin, hair, nails, and mucous membranes. Combining microneedling with stem cell treatments can accelerate the natural wound-healing response, providing more stimulation of growth factors with a faster healing response and reduced downtime. Recent studies suggest that with the combined procedures there is significant improvement in hydration, melanin, skin texture, dermal thickness and collagen, compared to microneedling alone.
PRP is the platelet rich plasma present in the blood that releases growth factors that assist the body's healing process by stimulating cells to regenerate new tissue and collagen. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has been around since the 1970s and has been successfully applied to orthopedic surgery to promote healing. PRP has gained significant attention because growth factors are important for new cell generation and cellular functions, such as creating new collagen and elastic fibers. Growth factors come in many different varieties and are extremely abundant in our platelets. Studies have shown that PRP can also stimulate stem cells to promote the growth of new skin and it is known for its ability to rejuvenate the face and promote a firmer younger looking skin. This process uses your own natural platelets to help improve your skin!
The treatment involves the collection of approximately 8-16 ml of your blood which is then spun down using a centrifuge to separate out the plasma and platelet portions. The PRP portion of your blood is then used at the point of care to re-energize your cells into rejuvenating themselves. The product used is 100% your own blood.

Tired of looking older with that chin fat? Toss the scarves and get started with the latest FDA approved treatment for double chins.
Coralee McKay is a trained KybellaTM injector in the Scottsdale, AZ area now offering a treatment to get rid of double chins! Recently approved by the FDA, KYBELLATM (deoxycholic acid) injections contour and improve the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness, sometimes referred to as "double chin."
"Double chin" affects both men and women, and can be influenced by aging, genetics and weight gain. According to a survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, nearly as many consumers are bothered by submental fullness (68%) as by lines and wrinkles around the eyes (71%).
How Does KYBELLATM Work?
Because this area of the body is often resistant to diet and exercise alone, Kybella provides a breakthrough injectable that is quick to administer, requiring only a few treatments. When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLATM causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
Are There Any Side Effects?
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and formation of small areas of firmness around the treatment area. KYBELLATM can cause serious side effects, including trouble swallowing and nerve injury in the jaw that can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness.

What Are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are the small red or purple veins commonly seen on the skin surface of the thighs, calves, ankles and sometimes the face. These tiny veins often radiate from a dark center point, thus the name "spider vein." There are two therapies for removing these veins: laser treatments and sclerotherapy.
Sclerotherapy is a system used to collapse the vein by injecting it with a sclerosing solution (a mild irritant). A sotradecol solution is used in the office instead of saline or salt water. This solution causes less discomfort and is better tolerated. It causes the vein to immediately collapse and disappear over a few weeks. After the sclerotherapy session, compression stockings are worn to aid in the prevention of blood clots and to help massage the muscles around the insufficient veins. These must be worn continuously for seventy-two hours and then daily for two weeks.
