The body naturally produces collagen and elastin or the primary building blocks of youthful, firm, and glowing skin. As your body ages, your body slows down the production of collagen and elastin. The breakdown of collagen and elastin is different for everyone but happens to us all eventually. However, it is not the only reason for facial aging. Sun exposure, smoking, poor diet, drug use, illness, and some medications can also contribute to the breakdown of collagen and elastin.
OUR Dermal Fillers
Juvéderm® / Radiesse® / Restylane®
The world’s leading dermal filler, Juvéderm®, is composed of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). As an important building block of the skin’s structure, HA draws moisture into the tissues, plumping them and easing out wrinkles. The results of Juvéderm® injections can be seen quickly as the filler triggers the production of collagen. Benefits continue to improve over the next several months. Juvéderm® will not require a second procedure for nine to twelve months, sometimes longer, making it an excellent value. After treatment, patients will have smoother, more contoured features and a more youthful appearance. Juvéderm® can significantly improve:

When combined with other procedures such as Botox® or Stem Cells, patients can see optimal improvement with Restylane®. Not only is Restylane® great for lip enhancement, but it can also improve the appearance of scars and add lost facial volume. The injectable will instantly:
