Facial makeovers have become increasingly popular as people seek to enhance their appearance and boost their confidence. Whether it’s addressing signs of aging, correcting facial asymmetry, or simply wanting to refresh how they look, there are various surgical and nonsurgical options available. 

Surgical Options

Look your absolute best from the decolletage up!

Facelift/ Neck lift

A facelift with a neck lift are surgical procedures aimed at reducing visible signs of aging in the face and neck. They involve tightening the underlying muscles, removing excess fat, and repositioning the skin to create a more youthful appearance. 

Scarring is minimal. We work very hard to position them discreetly, so they are well concealed in the hairline and natural skin folds. Recovery time can be several weeks, and the results are long-lasting, typically lasting 7-10 years.

Fat transfer

Sometimes, patients have hollowed out areas of their face. Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting or fat injection, involves transferring fat from one part of the body to the face to enhance volume, fill in wrinkles, and rejuvenate the appearance. It’s a popular procedure that can provide natural-looking results and has relatively minimal downtime compared to surgical alternatives. 

The procedure involves extracting fat from an area where you don’t want it, then purifying it, and injecting it into the predetermined facial areas to restore a naturally refreshing and youthful appearance.

Blepharoplasty

Also known as eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty’s goal is to improve the appearance of the eyelids by removing excess skin, muscle, and fat. It tackles droopy eyelids, under-eye bags, and puffiness, resulting in a more refreshed and youthful look. 

Recovery usually takes 1-2 weeks, with bruising and swelling gradually diminishing.

Rhinoplasty

Reshape or resize your nose for aesthetic or functional reasons. With rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a nose job, you can correct nose size, shape, symmetry, and improve breathing problems.

Recovery time varies but generally takes a few weeks for swelling and bruising to subside.

Nonsurgical Options

Many patients either aren’t ready for surgery or don’t need it, but they still want to enhance and refresh how they look.

Injectables

Hate those lines and wrinkles that seem to multiply overnight? The good news is that we have multiple neuromodulator injectables to meet your needs. These injections are a popular nonsurgical option for reducing wrinkles and fine lines by temporarily paralyzing underlying muscles. These are commonly used to treat forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows. Results typically last 3-6 months, and there’s minimal downtime involved.

We have the following injectables in our toolbox: Wrinkle Relaxers, Daxxify, and Dysport.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are injectable gels that add volume, smooth wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. They can plump lips, fill in hollow areas, and soften lines and wrinkles. Results vary depending on the type of filler used but generally last 6-18 months.

We offer various dermal fillers including Juvéderm, Restalyne, Radiesse, RHA Collection, Sculptra, and SkinVive.

Laser Treatments

Laser treatments use focused light to target specific areas of the skin or body for skin rejuvenation. Lasers work by delivering intense light energy, which can selectively destroy or alter the targeted cells or tissue without affecting surrounding areas. 

Our treatments use the Alma Hybrid, Alma Veil, and Candlela Nordlys lasers. These are great for skin resurfacing, CO2 resurfacing, hyperpigmentation, scar reduction, photo rejuvenation, spider vein reduction, and more!

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels involve applying a chemical solution to the skin to exfoliate dead skin cells and stimulate collagen production. They can improve skin texture, tone, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Recovery time ranges from a few days to a couple of weeks, depending on the depth of the peel.

We offer six unique VI Peel formulations designed to lift pigment, remove sun damage, alleviate acne and scarring, and fight fine lines and wrinkles. All our painless medium-depth VI Peels are safe for all skin types and tones with results in as little as 7 days!
