If wrinkle-reducing products don’t give you the skin you want, Pellevé RF Wrinkle Reduction is an amazing, non-invasive option!

Pellevé uses breakthrough radiofrequency technology to gradually heat and energize dermal tissue with electromagnetic waves, causing collagen and elastin formation. As new collagen and elastin are formed in the treated tissues, the skin gradually becomes tighter, firmer and smoother.

A standard Pellevé treatment typically lasts no more than 15 minutes to one hour, depending on the size of the area being treated as well as the condition of the skin.

Patients enjoy Pellevé sessions because it feels like a warm hot stone massage and does not require any downtime, making it ideal for those with busy schedules or those who do not want obvious signs that they have received cosmetic treatment. The results can even last up to six months and can be preserved through occasional “touch ups.”

As you age, your skin loses volume because you lose hyaluronic acid – which hydrates your skin & keeps it looking plump and smooth.

Our answer? Juvederm, a dermal filler that is ideal for volume loss in your face.

Dermatological lasers are great for addressing an array of skin concerns.

Every dermatological laser is designed to target specific skin concerns, such as saggy skin or sun spots. Some lasers will tighten the skin by promoting new collagen production, while others work to even out skin tone to drastically brighten the face.

There are so many different lasers out there, so I wanted to put the spotlight on three of my favorites for facial rejuvenation.

You can be thin & still have a “Turkey Neck” – which is often caused by genetics.

Thankfully, the makers of Botox created an FDA approved, non-invasive treatment that can permanently eliminate chin fat, called Kybella.

CoolSculpting permanently removes fat by freezing it, with NO downtime!

CoolSculpting is one of the most popular non-invasive body contouring procedures, due to its effectiveness, short procedure time and great results!

Not all CoolSculpting treatments are the same. At my practices, we have the latest technology that freezes fat in half the time. We also have two machines, which allow us to treat two areas at the same time. Plus, we finish each CoolSculpting treatment with a Zwave treatment (rather than hand massage), which helps increase results up to 60%.
