Botox Cosmetic – Botox is a prescription medicine injected into the muscles of the face to temporarily improve the appearance of crow’s feet around the eyes and frown lines in between the eyes and forehead. The actual process of treatment takes about 10 minutes and there is virtually no “down time” after the procedure. You make notice some mild redness or bruising at the injection site. Very mild swelling may also be experienced but these symptoms usually dissipate quickly. You should be able to go about your normal routine immediately after leaving the office*.
Results from the treatment may be noticeable in as little as 24 to 48 hours with results lasting up to 4 months. Botox is a technique-sensitive treatment and the effects should be subtle but noticeable. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by a licensed, trained, medical professional. Meg Brucker, PA-C and Dr. Brucker have been performing Botox injections for over 5 years and you can feel comfortable knowing you’re in good hands.

Juvederm XC is injectable gel for injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. The collection of fillers are made from hyaluronic acid. This is a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and adds volume. These fillers will provide three to twelve months of effect, depending on the patient. Contact us for more information.
Gentle Waves LED Light Therapy
Gentle waves is a completely pain-free process that utilizes Photomodulation technology by using energy from LED sources. This energy uses proprietary fluences and pulse algorithms specifically matched to the cellular processes that enhance skin rejuvenation. The result is activation of cells that respond to this message and begin to boost collagen production. Collagen is responsible for providing the “support” to our skin thus reducing the appearance of skin sag and fine lines and wrinkles. Gentle Waves also reduces the appearance of redness and irritation and is often used on sunburned skin to lessen the harmful effects of burn. Radiation treatment patients have also benefitted from Gentle Waves to speed recovery of damaged tissue.
Gentle Waves offers a cumulative effect and 3 to 5 sessions is what is recommended to see aesthetic differences in the skin. Single treatments are beneficial when sunburn has occurred from a beautiful ski day without sunscreen!
The Gentle Waves treatment is offered individually or in conjunction with a Hydrafacial procedure which “prepares” the skin for maximal penetration of light therapy.
PRP Liquid Facial
Do you exhibit these three signs of skin aging?
1. Skin texture becomes less smooth or “worn out”.
2. Facial shape changes as collagen and elastin begin to diminish in the dermis.
3. Skin color changes with increased pigmentation.
You may have considered options like traditional face lifts, Botox, or dermal fillers and these options have been around for quite some time. All have there applications but they also have their drawbacks. Now, with the PRP Liquid Facial, you have an all natural option to provide a youthful balance to the skin without surgical intervention. The PRP Facial has been made famous on the reality TV show, The Kardashians, starring Kim Kardashian. A combination of micro-needling and the application of platelet rich plasma (PRP) provides a boost to collagen production and stimulates growth factors when applied to the skin.
