Injectable wrinkle fillers can give you a more youthful look for a fraction of what a traditional facelift costs. Most will fill hollows, lines, and wrinkles in less than 30 minutes with results that can last from 4 months to more than a year.
Injectable wrinkle fillers, unlike Botox injections that relax the muscle under a wrinkle, fill the line, crease, or area with one of several different substances. As a result, trouble spots nearly disappear.Read More

DOT CO2 laser resurfacing is a procedure utilized to improve and repair sun damaged skin, wrinkles, acne scars and surgical scars. The CO2 laser emits an intense beam of light that removes the damaged skin allowing healthy new skin to grow in its place. The beam itself is split into hundreds of tiny beams instead of being a solid column of light.Read More
Skinfinity uses patented in-motion technology for treatments of the face and body. The in-motion roller tip is applied to the treatment area, delivering focused radiofrequency through rows of pyramid-shaped electrodes. When the roller tip glides over your skin, each electrode delivers precise energy to the area to achieve the ideal thermal effect. This creates controlled injuries to the tissue called Micro-ablative Treatment Zones (MTZs). The MTZs stimulate an enhanced healing response, encouraging your skin to rejuvenate and improving your results. Both components of the treatment can be adjusted and customized to meet each client’s individual skin care needs.Read More

A thread facelift is a safe, convenient alternative to traditional facelift surgery. Designed to be less invasive, it can reduce sagging around the cheeks, jawline, and neck more quickly and with less risk than the conventional approach.
Special threads are used during this facelift to discreetly hold repositioned skin and facial tissue in place. And while thread lifts generally produce noticeable results almost immediately and with less risk and inconvenience than more intensive procedures, thread lift costs are quite reasonable compared to traditional options.
So what is a thread facelift?Read More
