Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser technology has made great strides in eliminating tattoos, so this may be a good time to seriously consider tattoo removal. Everything from small, single colored tattoos to large, multicolored ones can be significantly faded or completely removed using currently available lasers.
Laser Hair Removal/Reduction
From upper lip to bikini line, legs, underarms and back. Laser light does what electrolysis and depilatories cannot — damage growing hair follicles so the hair will not return. The procedure is performed without the need for an anesthetic. With each treatment there is a noticeable decrease in hair growth. The effect is permanent, leaving only satisfaction.
Unlike other treatments, laser light can completely disrupt a hair, root and all. As the hair absorbs a quick flash of laser light, a nanosecond of heat destroys the body’s ability to grow hair in that spot. The treatment creates few or no side effects and just a few sessions can stop unwanted hair growth for good.
DOT Therapy (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) is a fresh new way to transform skin and enhance its overall appearance. DOT Therapy can reverse the appearance of aged or sun-damaged skin, smooth wrinkles and fine lines and minimize acne scars. Because DOT Therapy delivers the desired outcome with minimal downtime, it is rapidly replacing traditional laser skin resurfacing as the treatment of choice for mild to moderate signs of photo damage.

Sclerotherapy is the injection of a medicine into a vein, causing the vein to collapse and disappear. The body then replaces this damaged vessel with imperceptible tissue that causes no harm to circulation. Where surgery was once the only answer, now sclerotherapy produces natural, beautiful results.
The sclerosing solution disrupts the small cells which line the inner walls of blood vessels. A large number of veins within a given area may improve with a single injection.
Fading of blood vessels continues for 1 to 6 weeks. It is important to recognize that sclerotherapy does not prevent new spider veins and recurrences can occur over 1-5 years.
Restylane® is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness in facial skin to correct wrinkles and folds. Restylane is composed of non-animal, stabilized hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the human body. It is also hydrophilic or “water-loving.” As hyaluronic acid gradually degrades, each molecule binds to more water. Over time, the same volume of water can be maintained with less hyaluronic acid. This ability of hyaluronic acid to bind to water is what helps provide long-lasting results. While Restylane is administered as an injection, it is not the same as, nor a replacement for Botox Cosmetic®. Botox Cosmetic is a medicine that blocks nerve transmission, relaxing the underlying muscles. Restylane, on the other hand, is a filler that smoothes facial wrinkles and folds. Many patients have been very pleased after receiving treatment with both products. Restylane is ideal for some problems that, in the past, could only be treated with collagen injections.
Restylane is also an alternative to collagen for creating full, soft lips. Considering the gentle nature of Restylane, it is easy to understand why it has gained so much popularity so quickly.

Perlane is a dermal filler and long-lasting gel that, once injected into the skin with an ultra-fine needle, lifts and adds volume and helps diminish fine lines. Made of a natural substance called hyaluronic acid, it is a completely safe treatment. The hyaluronic acid in Perlane simply supplements the body’s age-depleted hyaluronic acid to plump-up the lip or to raise the skin and ‘fill in’ the particular wrinkle being treated.

It’s called stubborn fat for a reason: no matter how much you eat healthy and exercise, it’s virtually impossible to lose those annoying muffin tops, love handles, and belly pooch.

Only CoolSculpting targets fat cells alone, eliminating them in an easy, non-intrusive fashion that exercise and diet can’t achieve as quickly or as effectively. More Information
