Aesthetic Medicine

Dermal fillers are a great tool to help promote fullness and volume or reduce the appearance of smile or smoker’s lines. Hyaluronic acid based fillers “fill in” the area they are injected in to. This can help to enhance your natural beauty by contouring, sculpting, creating volume or creating structure in the desired areas.

Dermal fillers can help with

  • Lip plumping and shaping
  • Firming or volumizing cheeks, forehead, eyebrow and under eye areas
  • Enhancing shallow contours
  • Soften the appearance of scars and wrinkles
  • Reduce the appearance of smokers and smile lines
  • Enhance the jaw line

Aesthetic procedures using neuromodulator injections (such as Dysport, Xeomin or Botox) don’t just treat aging skin but can actually help prevent wrinkles & fine lines and promote collagen restoration.

Neuromodulator injections disrupt the nerve receptors that trigger movement at the site of injection, which can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles that form over time or even prevent them from occurring.

If you’re noticing fine lines or wrinkles, or you want to prevent them, this treatment might be a good option for you.⁠

What can Neuromodulators help with?

  • Softening & reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Smoothing complexion
  • Improving the texture of your skin
  • Lifting brows
  • Lip Flip

Microneedling is a treatment that creates thousands of micro channels into the skin and over problem skin areas. It stimulates collagen production and new cell growth and triggers a natural healing process that can be used in remodeling the integrity of skin while reducing scars, stretch marks, wrinkles and other visible skin issues.

Hyaluronic Acid is a substance produced by our bodies. It is a key player in keeping our skin hydrated, working as a binder to moisture molecules. When applied topically to skin it works by collecting moisture and passing it into the skin.

When we combine these we take that regenerative healing process and we give that moisturizing substance the ability to penetrate deeper into our skin. This helps to attract and retain more moisture while we rebuild for softer and healthier looking skin.

Benefits of HA microneedling include:

  • Fade Scars and Stretch Marks
  • Improve Skin Tone and Texture
  • Reduce Signs of Aging Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Softer, more Hydrated Skin
  • Minimize the Appearance of Pores
  • Reduce Hyperpigmentation, Rosacea, and other Visible Skin Issues

Also known as vampire facials, PRP facials combine the benefits of collagen induction through micro needling and the many regenerative benefits of platelet rich plasma (PRP). Plasma (the liquid part of your blood) plays a big part in the natural healing process. PRP uses your own platelets to accelerate healing and stimulate the production of reparative cells.

This treatment involves isolating the regenerative part of your blood and micro needling it back into the skin using a micro needling device. I use one of the leaders in the industry: the SkinPen. I also use AquaGold Microchannel. Together, the PRP and micro needling can help stimulate collagen production and cell growth. Because of this, it can help address many skin concerns, including:⁠

  • Improving skin texture⁠ & elasticity
  • Reduce fine lines & wrinkles⁠
  • Improving acne scarring⁠ (and other scarring)
  • Help with dark undereye circles⁠
  • Help with dry skin or uneven pigmentation⁠
  • Reducing the appearance of sun damage
  • Reducing the appearance of stretch marks

The AquaGold Microchannel Facial technology can be used to deliver microdoses of neuromodulators (like Botox or Xeomin), fillers, hyaluronic acid or other agents into your skin. This treatment uses tiny 24 karat needles (smaller than a human hair) for a painless experience. 

This can be used with a wide variety of treatments to address skin concerns. When compared to microneedling, the microchannel causes even less minimal damage to the dermis of the skin, delivers the therapeutic agents more efficiently, and results can be seen right away!

This treatment is especially great for anyone with an aversion to needles. 

Naturopathic Medicine

Rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture can help redirect the flow of your energy and rebalance your Qi. 

Acupuncture has been known to help with many conditions, including pain, anxiety, depression, digestion, allergies and anxiety.

I use acupuncture in conjunction with intuition, crystals, and guided meditation/hypnosis, to heal negative thought patterns and beliefs that hold us in our current state of being. 

Each session is tailored uniquely to you and your needs.

Electroacupuncture 
Electroacupuncture is quite like traditional acupuncture in that the same points are stimulated during treatment. The needles are attached to a device that generates continuous electric pulses using small clips. 

This is especially useful for treating conditions related to chronic pain, and sports related injuries and can add extra stimulation to any acupuncture treatment. 

Cupping is another form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that involves using glass cups and flames to create suction and facilitate blood flow and circulation. Imagine this like a reverse massage, pull fresh blood into areas to open up tissue. This is often in combination with an acupuncture treatment, however some prefer just the cupping.ping..⁠

What can Cupping help with?

  • Enhance circulation (blood & lymph) 
  • Rebalance Qi
  • Remove metabolic toxins
  • Relieve pain and swelling
  • Promote relaxation
  • Improve respiratory function
  • Ease gastrointestinal pain
