BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®
Botox Cosmetic is approved for the temporary treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and other areas. It is also used for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).

Also known as chemexfoliation, or derma-peeling, is designed to improve and help regenerate new skin, which will usually be smoother and have fewer wrinkles than your old skin. Chemical peels can treat fine lines caused by sun damage, certain types of acne, mild scarring, and reduce age spots.
This revolutionary treatment integrates cleansing, exfoliating, extraction, and hydrating simultaneously. There is no downtime and it is good for all skin types. It targets fine lines, sunspots, fine lines, clogged pores, and oily skin. It removes dead skin cells and impurities while also infusing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating, and moisturizing serums. It is soothing, refreshing, and the effective on the first treatment. When you choose to add the TNS (Tissue Nutrient Solution) serum it improves skin elasticity, enhances skin texture, and reduces the appearance of age spots and blotchiness.
Microdermabrasion is the practice of lightly removing damaged skin (often sun-damaged) in order to lessen scars and dark spots on the skin. This is an excellent procedure for overall skin rejuvenation in addition to treating fine lines, acne, acne scars, and uneven pigmentation. Microdermabrasion is a painless, safe, fast, effective method of improving skin quality.
Photofacial is a form of Intense Pulse Light therapy. Photofacial uses non-invasive technology to eradicate common skin problems of the face such as rosacea, melasma, broken capillaries, acne, sunspots, spider veins, and fine wrinkles. The process is safe, comfortable, and effective with little or no downtime.
Sclerotherapy / Spider Veins
Spider veins are small superficial blood vessels that appear red or blue in skin. They commonly occur on the legs, but are also found on the face or other areas of the body. The injection method is a procedure called Sclerotherapy. A solution is injected directly into the blood vessel with a very fine needle. The solution irritates the lining of the vessel causing it to stick together. Over the next few weeks the vessel fades and is barely noticeable. Sclerotherapy can be combined with laser treatments.
Skin tags are most commonly found on the neck but may occur at any site. Removal is simple, quick and effective.
