Submental fullness, also known as ‘double chin’ can affect both men and women of all ages. It can persist no matter how much you diet or exercise. Nurse Erin offers a non-surgical treatment called Belkyra that specifically targets this stubborn fat deposit. Belkyra is an injection made up of deoxycholic acid, which breaks down and dissolves stubborn fat cells. When Belkyra is injected, it targets and destroys fat cells permanently. Belkyra is one of the most safe and effective ways to treat submental fullness without the need for surgery. Belkyra is ideal for elimination of stubborn or excess fat, but it cannot treat skin laxity in the neck. Therefore, it is the ideal treatment for individuals with relatively firm skin but excess stubborn fullness under their chin. Book your virtual consultation with Nurse Erin to learn whether Belkyra is right for you!

Botox / Xeomin
We offer two different types of botulinum toxins also known as neuromodulators. The trade name of these anti-wrinkle injections are Botox and Xeomin. They have the same bacteria but Botox is formulated with proteins, whereas Xeomin doesn't contain any accessory proteins. Each produce a similar result, diminishing lines and wrinkles that are created by muscle contraction. Some patients may have a preference based on previous treatments and we can use either interchangeably to achieve desired results.
Why botox cosmetic?
Look like you, with less noticeable facial lines. Botox cosmetic is the first and only treatment FDA approved to temporarily make moderate-to-severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines look better in adults. So you look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines. It’s a quick 10-minute treatment with minimal downtime. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.
A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the Sun and the environment. Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to Furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. Botox cosmetic works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults– to help them look visibly smoother.

If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines will gradually return.

Treatment requires minimal downtime. You can return to your daily routine immediately after your treatment. We will go through post-treatment instructions and things to avoid for the remainder of the day after your treatment.
How many injections will I receive?
Treatment with botox cosmetic is customized to your goals and needs when we do our virtual consultation we will determine the appropriate treatment for any areas you wish to address, including moderate-to-severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines.
Is botox cosmetic only for women?
Not at all! Many men make botox cosmetic part of what they do to care for their appearance. The number of men choosing treatments like botox cosmetic has risen fast – in the in the past three years alone men have received over 1 million botulinum toxin treatments. When surveyed, the majority of men say they want to look good and they’re bothered by the changes they see in the mirror. 80% would use to treat their crow’s feet first, while 74% would prioritize their forehead lines, and 60% would most like to treat their frown lines.

What is Xeomin?
Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medication injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults. Xeomin contains botulinum toxin type A, a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
How does Xeomin work?
When you squint or frown, the muscles between your eyebrows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines. Botulinum toxin type A - the active ingredient in Xeomin - acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, Xeomin can temporarily reduce the lines between your eyebrows.
What can I expect during treatment?
During treatment, which usually takes about 10-20 minutes, your doctor will inject Xeomin into the muscles in your forehead that cause frown lines between your eyebrows. No anesthesia is required; however, your physician may use a topical anesthetic or cold pack to reduce any discomfort.
When can I expect to see results?
You may being to see visible smoothing as early as 3-4 days after injection. The median first onset of effect was less than a week. The maximum effect occurred at 30 days. The typical duration of effect was up to 3 months in clinical trials but may last significantly longer or shorter in individual patients.

A dermal filler is a non-surgical medical treatment that is injected into the skin to correct the associated signs of aging seen with the appearance of lines, wrinkles and creases. It is a gel like substance (hyaluronic acid) that is naturally produced in the body and then injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines, soften creases or enhance facial contours.
Chin/Jawline area - Improve facial harmony by strengthening the jawline and chin, to soften jowls, improve 'double chins' or to give a stronger, more defined jawline.
Tear troughs - Replace volume loss, reduce shadowing and 'bags', look less 'tired', medial to lateral trough
Lip enhancement, lip volumization, balance and symmetry. Whether you desire a subtle plump and hydration or a more voluminous look, we provide the most beautiful and natural lip enhancements.
The heart of the bone structure of the face. Lift and elevate the mid face and give a soft, youthfulness to the upper face. Achieving beautiful symmetry and support to hold off the effects of gravity.
The general goal is to restore a youthful appearance, not to look unnatural. The goal is to look like a refreshed version of yourself.
The lifespan of filler depends on the type, where it is injected, and how quickly the person metabolizes the product. In an area like the lips, the average patient will need to come back in 6-9 months since there is a lot of movement in that area. Most fillers last 6-12 months but some can last up to 2 years.
The idea can seem scary to many patients, due to a fear of pain resulting from the injections. Many fillers contain lidocaine, a mild anesthetic that helps minimize pain during and after treatment. Some patients do report mild discomfort during treatment. This depends on the area being treated and how much filler is used.

PRP (Hair Restoration & Facial Rejuvenation)
How PRP Works?
Platelet rich plasma, also known as "PRP" is an injection treatment whereby a person's own blood is used. Approximately 12ml of blood is drawn from the individual patient into a syringe. The blood is spun in a special centrifuge to separate its components (red blood cells, platelet rich plasma, platelet poor plasma and Buffy coat). Platelets are very small cells in your blood that are involved in the clotting and healing process.
When PRP is injected into the damaged area it causes a mild inflammation that triggers the healing cascade. As the platelets organize in the treatment area they release a number of enzymes to promote healing and tissue responses including attracting stem cells and growth factors to repair the damaged area. As a result new collagen begins to develop. As the collagen matures it begins to shrink causing the tightening and strengthening of the damaged area.
The full procedure takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour. Generally, two to three treatments are advised; however, more may be necessary for some individuals. Touch-up treatments may be done once a year after the initial group of treatments to boost and maintain the results.
PRP has been established for over 20 years for its wound healing properties and it's proven Effectiveness has extended across multiple Medical Specialties including cardiovascular surgery, Orthopedics, Sports Medicine, Podiatry, ENT, neurosurgery, dental and maxillofacial surgery. PRP's emergence into Aesthetics & Skin Rejuvenation began in 2004 in Europe, Asia, Australia and South America in countries such as the United Kingdom, Japan, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland and Argentina to name a few areas typically treated for aesthetic purposes and skin Rejuvenation include; crinkling skin around the eyes, cheeks and red face, neck, jawline, chest and décolletage, back of hands and arms, lips and to stimulate hair growth on scalp. Almost all skin tones show that PRP is safe and effective because your own in rich plasma is used.
Benefits of PRP:
Along with the benefit of using your own tissue there for virtually eliminating allergies, there is the added Intrigue of mobilizing your own stem cells for your benefit. PRP has been shown to have overall rejuvenating effects on the skin including; improving skin texture, thickness, fine lines and wrinkles, increasing volume via the increased production of collagen and elastin, and by diminishing and improving the appearance of scars.
The most dramatic results to date have been the crepe-y skin problems in areas such as under the eyes, neck, and décolletage. It is not designed to replace cosmetic surgery as there are some cases where those procedures would be more appropriate. Other benefits include; minimal downtime, safe with minimal risk, short recovery time, natural looking results and no general anaesthesia is required.
Results are generally visible at 4 weeks and continue to improve gradually over ensuing months (3-6) with improvement in texture and tone. Advanced wrinkling cannot be reversed and only a minimal improvement is predictable in persons with drug, alcohol and tobacco usage. Severe scarring may not respond. Current data shows results May last 18 to 24 months. Of course, all individuals are different, so there will be variations from one person to the next.
