ARE DERMAL FILLERS THE BEST TO TREAT LINES ON THE FOREHEAD?Dermal fillers are best used to treat areas of volume loss, like cheeks, smile lines or nasolabial folds, hands, earlobes, droopy eyelids or to add volume and definition to lips.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE A FACIAL?Since the life of a skin cell is approximately 28 days, a facial is recommended every 4 weeks to aid it into a healthier state.
HOW LONG DO JUVEDERM INJECTIONS LAST?Juvederm injections can last 6 months to a year or longer especially under circumstances of full correction and regular skin care maintenance. Other determining factors are your age, your health status, your skincare program, smoking, concomitant use of botox or dysport, how you move your face when expressing yourself, genetics and sun exposure.
WHAT IS DYSPORT™?Dysport™ is a brand name for botulinum toxin type A, a neuromodulator that blocks muscle activity by temporarily inactivating the nerves that control them. By relaxation of the treated muscles, the “worry lines”, “frown lines”, “crow’s feet”, “chin dimpling” and dynamic wrinkles improve. The dose of Dysport™ is not the same as the dose of Botox™.

WHAT IS MICRODERMABRASION?Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical way to repair and restore your skin to its youthful appearance. Our FDA approved treatment is a progressive method of refining the texture of your skin while tightening the layers below the surface. The microdermabrasion hand piece creates the vacuum stimulation required to increase blood flow to the surface of the skin for collagen and elastin reformation. We recommend a series of at least six treatments for maximal benefit.
