Dermatology consultation and care for minor skin affectations such as actinic keratosis and acne can also be addressed. Severe cases can be referred on to a dermatologist. Referral for in house laser treatments available when required. Filler dissolution care is also offered.


neurotoxins such as Dysport, Nuceiva or Botox are injected into facial muscles that cause deep line formations. Where neurotoxins are concerned, less is usually more to create a subtle relaxed looking facial expression. Neurotoxins are usually priced per unit injected. Most people who want to have their glabellar region (between the eyes) relaxed will usually require 18-20 units. This treatment modality can be used to increase the surface area of the lips (lip flip) or raise the eye brows for a slightly more rested look. Migraines and hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating ailments can also be treated successfully with Botox.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers are used to either highlight your youthful features or to REDUCE the hollows created by bone and fat loss produced by normal facial aging. The goal and the area to be treated will determine which type of product is used. Some products are meant to be injected directly over the bone, these will be thicker and last the longest. Other products can be injected just under the epidermis to address fine lines, in this case the filler used will be thinner and lighter. Finally, a medium thickness product will perform very well when injected sub dermally into the fat pads resulting in a rejuvenating effect that will make you look much younger than your years.


Sculptra is a Poly L Lactic Acid (PLLA) collagen bio stimulator that is injected in certain areas of the face to gradually stimulate collagen growth over 6-8 weeks. At least 2-3 treatment sessions of 1-2 vials are required depending on your age. Usually, 1 vial per decade of life starting at age 30 will be required. The beneficial effects of this treatment will last at least 25 months and indefinitely if maintained with one vial per year. When this treatment is used in combination with hyaluronic acid fillers or skin boosters a synergetic effect is created to provide the aesthetic outcome you’re looking for. Sculptra is the ideal modality for someone who is looking for gradual, natural looking improvements.

Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels are a great treatment choice for many skin concerns, from acne, hyperpigmentation/melasma, signs of aging and sun damage. There are varying types of peels that may be used to remove the skin's outermost layers that in turn, stimulates cell renewal and cell turnover, improving skin's texture and appearance. This treatment will also remove small wrinkles and large pores leaving your skin looking fresh and bright. Chemical peels are also an ideal treatment to address acne.


Mesotherapy is a treatment that stimulates the middle layer of the skin. In mesotherapy procedures, small doses of natural ingredients are administered subcutaneously with special disposable fine needles. This treatment will improve small lines and wrinkles, dull, loose and dehydrated skin, help with acne scars, cellulite, localized fat deposits, stretch marks and hair loss. Mesotherapy injection solution contains various vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, plant extracts and hyaluronic acids. Which solution is used will depend on the patient and the effect desired. This treatment modality when combined with a superficial chemical peel is an ideal choice for change of season resurfacing facial.
