BOTULINUM TOX - Botox
A safe and effective non-surgical procedure used to treat wrinkles produced by facial expression. Botox is the #1 requested non-surgical aesthetic procedure worldwide.
Our Botox treatments are administered in a simple non-surgical 15-30 minute session. Botox, a purified protein, temporarily smooths the moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and on the forehead, as well as the crows feet that are around the outside of the eyes. Botox is also clinically proven to treat Hyperhydrosis, which causes some clients excessive uncomfortable sweating. Botox helps reduce and smooth away undesirable lines for a youthful and refreshed appearance. And may also be used to enhance the lips and eyes.
Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften.
It is most often used on forehead lines, crow's feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines. Wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity will not respond to Botox.
The procedure takes only a few minutes and no anesthesia is required. Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It generally takes three to seven days to take full effect and it is best to avoid alcohol at least one week prior to treatment. Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications should be stopped two weeks before treatment as well in order to reduce bruising.
Dermal filling agents are most commonly used to restore age related volume loss, diminish “smile-lines” and to volumize the lips.

One of the most popular treatments in Europe and South America today, Carboxy is used to treat stretch marks, cellulite, and hypertrophic scars. Studies have shown it to be essential for anti-aging as it improves skin elasticity, improves circulation, encourages collagen repair, improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and destroys localized fatty deposits.
Carboxytherapy refers to the cutaneous and subcutaneous administration of carbon dioxide gas (CO2) for therapeutic purposes. Carboxytherapy originated at the Royal Spas of France in 1932 with the treatment of patients afflicted by peripheral arterial occlusive disease. In South America and Europe, carbon dioxide therapy has been applied to the treatment of stretch marks, cellulite and hypertrophic scars with impressive results. Studies have demonstrated that carboxytherapy improves skin elasticity, improves circulation, encourages collagen repair, improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and destroys localized fatty deposits. Carbon dioxide is a natural constituent of our very being. We breathe in oxygen and we exhale carbon dioxide. There are no known risks associated with carboxytherapy.
Sclerotherapy is a very effective and minimal discomfort procedure employing micro-injections of a special solution to cause these superficial veins to collapse and fade over 4-6 weeks or sooner.
Laser Vein Treatments provide superior patient comfort for treating both spider and reticular veins, and can be used alone or in combination with Sclerotherapy to maximize treatment results. The laser’s energy is converted into heat energy that collapses the selected vessel. Once destroyed, the vessel turns brown in color and dissolves via natural mechanisms. Because we offer both Sclerotherapy and Laser Vein Treatments, our clients can enjoy an individualized approach to treatment of both deep and superficial vessels.
A series of micro-injections to revitalize skin, treat cellulite, tighten loose skin and remove fatty deposits in localized areas of the face and body.
Mesotherapy introduces microscopic quantities of homeopathic medications, traditional pharmaceuticals, vitamins, mineral and amino acids into the skin to treat a variety of conditions. All medications are selected for the specific condition being treated. For example, the emphysema medication Aminophyilline is used to treat cellulite because it's been proven to break down fat, as has Isoproternol. Both medications work to achieve the same purpose in different ways, which is why the medications are often combined.
The advantages of injecting medication into the skin/fat include the elimination of side effects and contra-indications. Intolerance to a medication is often triggered by factors such as dose and the body's ability to break down and excrete the product. In many cases, formerly intolerant patients can tolerate a medication in Mesotherapeutic form.
