Hyaluronic acid is actually a sugar that binds to and absorbs water, it gives a fullness and plumpness to the skin and that is what we are constantly trying to replicate. Hyaluronic acid is actually a sugar that attracts water molecules to provide a plump, spongy effect to the skin. As water is absorbed by the acid, volume is created, acting in the same manner as how a sponge soaks up water and becomes full to even out every little crevice.
Micro Needling or Collage induction Therapy as it also is called, is done with a small hand held devise that makes tiny controlled punctures called a micro-wounds, or channels. These micro-wounds trigger the bodies healing process to produce new collagen and elastin within the dermis, (lower layer of the skin). Also new capillaries are formed for improved blood supply.

Need some help with your skin? Try a Jessner! A Jessner peel is a popular medium-depth chemical peel that works to improve skin health by helping remove and heal skin damage that is more extensive than regular “wear and tear.” This skin care treatment is stronger than most superficial chemical peels, and therefore creates more temporary damage to the skin in the process.
PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a fresh new way to transform skin and enhance its overall appearance. PRP therapy can reverse the appearance of aged or sun-damaged skin, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, help reduce uneven coloration, skin laxity, textural irregularities, dull tone and minimize scarring from acne.
We always notice the larger leg veins that are easily treated with injections. But with laser we also have the ability to treat those smaller, sometimes called spider or telangiectasia’s, vessels that pop up here and there on our body and face. I do a check on myself and get the vein treatment 1-2 times a year, as I have a tendency to get the small spider veins on my legs. You also can treat small capillaries around the nose, rosacea on the cheeks, or vessels that cause dark circles around your eyes.
A liquid facelift provides your face with an uplift using filler to increase the volume that is lost in the face as we age.
