How it Works
The CoolSculpting procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells freeze, and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and removes these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
Fat Reduction vs. Weight Loss
During the teenage years, the number of fat cells in your body becomes a fixed number. Losing or gaining weight does not increase the number of fat cells; it just changes the size of those cells. With dieting and weight loss, fat cells get smaller, but the number of cells stay the same.
CoolSculpting is different from weight loss because it actually reduces the number of fat cells in your body. When you treat an area with CoolSculpting, fat cells die and are naturally processed out of the body, so they won’t migrate to another area of your body. Most people see a 20% – 25% reduction of fat cells in areas treated with CoolSculpting*.
Am I a Good Candidate?
CoolSculpting is a fat reduction procedure and is not intended for weight loss. It is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Good candidates are otherwise healthy people who have noticeable bulges in certain areas, such as the abdomen or under the chin.

How it Works
Botox Cosmetic targets the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your dermatologist will inject these muscles with Botox Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a smoothing of your facial expression lines. It takes about two weeks to see the full effect of your injection and results last for about three months.
Is it Safe?
What to Expect
There is no downtime with Botox. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave our office. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, but it will take several days to see complete results for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting about three (3) months.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the human body. It acts as a cushioning and lubrication agent for joints, nerves, hair, skin, and eyes. About half of your body’s hyaluronic acid is found in your skin tissues, where it helps keep your skin plump, soft, and supple. Unfortunately, our bodies’ ability to produce hyaluronic acid declines with age, which can lead to dryness, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Fortunately, hyaluronic acid is now available as an injectable, which can be used to fill wrinkles, lift sagging skin, and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
What to Expect
The actual treatment takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on which area of your face is being treated. Some treatment areas will take longer than others.
Most patients experience very little or no downtime. Most likely, you’ll be able to about your normal routine immediately after you leave our office. You may see results almost immediately, with most results lasting about 10 months – or more, depending on the filler used.
Lasers, Light Sources, and Radio Frequency Treatments
We are pleased to offer a wide variety of laser, light source, and radiofrequency treatments customized to address each of our patient’s individual skin concerns. We specialize in minimally-invasive procedures which allow our patients to achieve youthful skin with little-to-no downtime.
Elōs Skin Rejuvenation
Laser Hair Reduction
Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile. If you’re unhappy or embarrassed by stubborn fat under the chin (also known as submental fullness) and don’t want to have surgery, then Kybella injections might be the right solution for you.
How it Works
What to Expect
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your dermatologist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each Kybella treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments.
At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
