BroadBand Light (BBL)

The FotoFacial® procedure is a full face, neck, chest, arms and hands treatment using broadband light (BBL), the world’s most powerful intense pulsed light device. It dramatically and effectively improves sun damage, reduces fine lines, smooths skin, reduces pore size, improves irregular pigmentation and sun spots, evens skin tone, and reduces rosacea-related redness and flushing. The light energy delivered by BBL will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, making it clearer, smoother, vibrant and younger looking. Three or more treatments at three to four-week intervals provide maximum improvement to the skin. The benefits of FotoFacial® treatments are consistent, visible improvement in the skin with no downtime, little discomfort, and minimal risk.

FotoFacial®—AgeDelay™ (formerly known as Forever Young BBL) also uses broadband light (BBL) to treat the skin. Treatments are designed to maintain healthy, youthful skin. It is for for people who already have nice, healthy skin or for patients who have previously undergone FotoFacial® for correction of sun damage, etc. FotoFacial®—AgeDelay™ can help patients continue to look youthful well into the future. Two to four treatments per year are recommended to experience the greatest results. Research at Stanford University has shown that patients who undergo this treatment see genuine improvements not only to their skin cells but also to the genes within them, which encourage the skin cells to act like they are younger. Additional research from one long-term study has indicated that patients who began regular FotoFacial®—AgeDelay™ treatments around age 45 still looked the same at age 55.

Chemical Peels

VI Peel – The VI Peel is a unique and revolutionary medical grade chemical peel designed to achieve dramatic results after just one treatment. A series of peels will provide the best results. This product is safe for all skin types. Obagi Blue Peel – The Obagi Blue Peel offers a blend of acids to provide a gentle but effective peel, resulting in brighter, tighter-looking skin immediately after one treatment.

Microneedling (SkinPen)

SkinPen is an FDA-approved microneedling device approved for treatment of acne scars in patients 22 years and older. With the highest level of safety and medical-grade quality, SkinPen precisely delivers thousands of micropunctures to the skin, stimulating the growth of new collagen and elastic fibers (Collagen Induction Therapy). Over time, this helps to improve the appearance of scars, fine lines, pores, uneven pigmentation, and overall skin texture. The skin may be treated with anesthetic prior to the procedure to reduce discomfort. Redness and swelling (like a sunburn) are common for 1 to 3 days but may last longer. A series of treatments provides the best results; improvement is gradual and may continue months after treatment.

truSculpt 3D

truSculpt 3D is a new, nonsurgical radio frequency device designed to sculpt and contour the body. On average, patients who’ve had this treatment have experienced an average of 24% reduction in fat thickness in a single treatment.

The length of your procedure will depend on which areas you’re having treated. As a gauge, it usually takes about 1 hour to treat the abdomen and both flanks (love handles).

You should see results after one treatment, although some patients choose to have a second treatment for final tweaks or to treat additional areas. Your provider will gently glide the handpiece over the treatment area and the temperature of the skin will rise but should remain comfortable for the duration of the treatment.

This is a noninvasive procedure and you’ll be able to resume your normal activities right after the treatment. You may feel some tenderness in the treatment area right after the treatment but that will go away within a day or two.

Right after the treatment, your body will start to break down and flush out the remnants of the fat cells that have been treated, which begins the reduction in the treated area’s circumference. Every body is different, but most people see noticeable results 8-12 weeks after being treated.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a dilute, purified form of Botulinum toxin which is an extremely effective muscle relaxant.

How does BOTOX® Cosmetic eliminate facial wrinkles?

When BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into the superficial muscles of the face, it relaxes these muscles and prevents the wrinkle lines caused by squinting, frowning, and raising our eyebrows. BOTOX® Cosmetic is ideal for improving and smoothing the skin between the eyebrows, the lines of the forehead, and the crow’s feet area around the eyes.

How is BOTOX® Cosmetic used?

A small amount of BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into the muscle that creates a wrinkle. By injecting the BOTOX® Cosmetic into a muscle, it blocks the nerve impulse from reaching that area and the muscle begins to weaken. As the muscle weakens, the BOTOX® Cosmetic treated areas begin to relax and the wrinkles in the skin soften and often disappear.

Does a BOTOX® Cosmetic injection hurt?

Applying a topical anesthetic cream for several minutes prior to the BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment will effectively numb the area. When the BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected, you may feel a slight stinging sensation that quickly subsides. Once the BOTOX® Cosmetic injection is complete, the discomfort subsides.

Is BOTOX® Cosmetic safe?

BOTOX® Cosmetic has an excellent safety profile. It has been used for almost two decades and has not resulted in any toxic effects to patients.

What are the advantages of BOTOX® Cosmetic?

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic is a quick and effective way to remove wrinkles. A typical treatment takes 10 minutes. Results are seen within 4 to 7 days
  • Little discomfort
  • There is no “down-time”. After the BOTOX® Cosmetic injection, you may resume normal activity or go back to work
  • There is no physical evidence that you had a cosmetic procedure done
  • There is no decrease in sensation or numbness of BOTOX® Cosmetic treated areas
  • BOTOX® Cosmetic is a nonsurgical approach to treat wrinkles

Who should not use BOTOX® Cosmetic?

Patients who are pregnant or have a neurological disease should not be treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic.
