The filler consists of 80% bovine collagen and 20% PMMA microspheres, which adds volume and lifts the face. Bellafill® provides instant results with improvement overtime to help you look and feel your best.
Belotero Balance® is a FDA approved dermal filler that is strong enough to handle deep treatment areas as well as delicate areas. It is one of the lightest dermal fillers on the marketing with unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin. It is ideal for addressing lines and wrinkles around the mouth and lips. As soon as Belotero is injected, the hyaluronic acid instantly binds with water molecules to fill out creases on the face.
Botox® is the most common cosmetic injectable in the United States, known to treat wrinkles including frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet. It also has medical benefits including treatment for migraines, muscle spasms, and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). The injectable treatment works by blocking a chemical called Acetylcholine, which causes muscle contractions and creates wrinkles. This treatment takes about 10-15 minutes and results can last up to 6 months.

Juvéderm® is a family of dermal fillers that replace the hyaluronic acid (HA) that is lost due to aging. These injectables include Vollure, Volbella, and Voluma. Each type of Juvéderm® is slightly different, but all FDA approved to enhance volume in different areas of the face. Vollure is best to treat nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and parentheses lines and results last up to 18 months. Volbella is best if you are looking for plumper lips for up to a year. Lastly, Voluma is the only approved filler that enhances cheek volume and facial contours. It is also the only proven filler to last two year.
Radiesse® is another FDA approved injectable filler that is similar to Botox in which is fills in wrinkles and creases in the skin. It is a gel-like injection consisting of calcium hydroxylapitate.

Xeomin® is an injection very similar Botox®. It is a highly purified neurotoxin that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines. This injectable acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent them from contracting and forming wrinkles. The results can be seen as early as 3 days and typically lasts up to 3 months.
We offer PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections for the face as well as hair restoration. Plasma gel has the same color and consistency as autologous face. When injected, the PRP is much softer and reactivates the natural dermal regeneration processes. PRP injections are 100% safe. For the face, PRP can lift wrinkles. increase collagen production, and can promote cellular regeneration. PRP injected into the hair line can promote the growth of hair follicles.
