It Starts Here:
Use Sunscreen- The sun is responsible for 80% of premature skin aging and is a known cause of skin cancer. There are things we can do to remove the results of too much sun exposure, but the best treatments are preventive. USE SUNSCREEN. However, there are dangers to conventional sunscreens. There can be chemicals in the product that disrupt hormones, and have a toxic buildup in the body. Read the labels. Use Zinc and/or Titanium Doxide whenever possible.

To Get Great Results:
Seek treatment only from reputable, experienced, highly qualified doctors, or licensed estheticians, under supervision of a doctor. To get best results, do your homework.
What is IPL?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a treatment where bright light is applied to the skin. IPL differs from lasers in that IPL emits a large spectrum of light, while lasers emit a single wavelength, but in practice they are quite similar. IPL can treat a variety of skin imperfections, and hair removal. There is no down time after treatment, but extra protection from the sun is necessary. IPL is an excellent choice for men and women with:
• Brown or age spots
• Hair removal
• Facial spider veins
• Skin pigmentation
Once reserved for filling in lines and plumping up wrinkles, injectables and fillers have a new role in the aesthetic arena, and are quickly becoming the go-to for everything from correcting nasal bumps to completely re-sculpting the face. Besides filling in wrinkles, these liquid miracles can:
• Relax scowl and frown lines
• Lift corners of the mouth
• Rejuvenate facial structure
• Shape the cheeks
• Remove squint lines
• Diminish under-eye bags/hollows
Learn About the Products:
Botulin Toxins- (denervating agents) These products (Botox, Dysport)reduce the muscle activity that gives animation to the face, which smooths out forehead wrinkles, crows feet, frown lines, and those “elevens” between the brows. Treatments last 3 to 6 months.
Restylane- is a clear liquid gel, a non-animal-based hyaluronic acid (a natural sugar compound) used for smoothing wrinkles, sculpting lips, and improving other facial features. The effects of Restylane treatments can last six months or more. Also aids the body in building its own collagen.
Radiesse- (collagen stimulator) Used for those who need more moderate amounts of volume restoration, to build up cheekbones, or around the mouth and the jowls. Works well to sculpt the face, feathered in at sides and up towards the ears, will cause a ‘lift’ at jaw line and cheekbones.
Results can last longer than Restylane.
Perlane-is a longer lasting version of Restylane that is intended for volume filling along with correcting deeper lines and folds. Perlane works well for the lips, especially for those in whom Restylane or Juvederm do not last long enough. Perlane is not intended for fine lines or thin wrinkles, and is expected to last between 6 months to a year.
Belotero- is a new hyaluronic acid filler which is very effective for fine lines and wrinkles. Belotero evenly integrates with your own dermal tissues and discreetly enhances facial contours. In clinical studies 66% of patients continued to show a visible improvement 9 months after a single treatment. Most clients opt for follow-up treatments after 6 to 12 months to maintain a fresh, youthful appearance
