Collagen Induction Treatments: RF Microneedling, Microneedling, Nano Boost, and PlasmaPen
When it comes to collagen induction treatments, we have no shortage of options. We offer different treatments to promote collagen growth in the deeper layers of the skin. Increased collagen production strengthens the skin’s foundation, treats the signs of aging like lines, wrinkles, folds, elasticity loss, and hollow areas, and helps you achieve a more vibrant and youthful-looking complexion.
Microneedling Treatments With the DermaPen
Microneedling is a treatment that’s been growing in popularity for its ability to naturally, safely, and effectively improve the complexion. It doesn’t require synthetic ingredients or invasive techniques to perfect the skin. We use the DermaPen during our microneedling treatments. This pen-shaped device has tiny, thin, sterile needles of adjustable depths. During treatment, the needles stamp the skin to create micro-channels, which open up the skin so it can better absorb topical products and serums. The treatment creates micro-injuries that the body responds to with increased collagen and elastin production.
How Does It Work?
This treatment creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin so that the body can heal those injuries with increased collagen production. Treatments take less than 60 minutes to complete, and you may need a series of treatments for optimal results. We can apply a topical numbing solution to enhance your comfort during the treatment so that you can lay back and relax as you get one step closer to younger-looking skin.
What Kind Of Results Can I Expect?
This treatment may cause existing collagen to contract, resulting in a noticeable and immediate tightening effect. However, the best results take time since collagen production can take up to 12 weeks to produce visible results. Improvements in the appearance of the skin are typically evident within the first four to six weeks of initial treatment, and results will continue to improve over time.
RF microneedling is a needling treatment that also incorporates radio frequency and energy into the mix. During the needling process, radio frequency energy will be simultaneously delivered from the microneedling device to double the collagen-boosting benefits. While the needles create tiny punctures on the skin surface to stimulate collagen production, radiofrequency energy will safely heat the dermal layers of the skin, causing a contraction and forcing the body to boost collagen production.
What Kind Of Results Can I Expect?
Like microneedling treatments, RF microneedling treatments also take time to deliver results. Patients may experience results anywhere from two to four weeks after their initial treatment, and the best results come from following the recommended treatment plan laid out by your technician.
Nano Boost is a non-invasive treatment that uses a pen-like device to stimulate collagen production. It doesn’t contain needles like the DermaPen we use during microneedling treatments but instead uses sphere-shaped tips inside its cartridge to create micro-channels in the skin. Nano Boost allows active ingredients in the serums and boosters to better penetrate the dermis to promote skin health and combat different skin conditions.
What Kind Of Results Can I Expect?
This treatment can help clear acne, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, lighten discoloration indicative of hyperpigmentation, and help patients achieve brighter skin. Those who aren’t eligible for needling treatments may qualify for the Nano Boost treatment since it does not puncture the skin with a needling device.
Plasma Fibroblast Treatments With the PlasmaPen
The PlasmaPen is a unique skin care device that is specifically designed to treat and improve the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and sagging slon resulting from elasticity loss. This FDA-approved device performs fibroblast treatments, which stimulate collagen production. During the treatment, electrical energy is transformed into nitrogen which transfers to the skin without requiring the device to make contact with the skin.
What Kind Of Results Can I Expect?
You may see some immediate results post-treatment, but the best results will appear within the first few weeks of treatment as the body responds to the process and creates more collagen. It’s important that you follow some specific care instructions post-treatment, including avoiding picking or scrubbing the treatment area to allow for adequate healing time.
Who Is a Candidate for Collagen Induction Treatments?
All of these treatments will stimulate collagen and elastin growth in the deeper, foundational layers of the skin, resulting in younger-looking skin that looks healthier, radiant, and has a noticeable glow. However, some patients may be better suited for some treatments over others. For that reason, we offer pre-treatment consultation so that we can learn more about your skin, your complexion goals, and the types of conditions you want to address. Then, we can make recommendations so that you can undergo treatments that will help you reach those goals and achieve a beautiful complexion.
Microblading is a treatment that helps patients achieve their ideal eyebrows. Results are natural, subtle, and last for 18 to 24 months or longer. Touch-up treatments will extend your results. During treatment, the technician uses a pen-like device to create tiny, hair-like strokes across your eyebrows to mimic natural eyebrow hairs. We can customize the treatment, and you’ll be able to pick your eyebrow shape, arch, color, and thickness. Microblading is perfect for those with naturally thinner and lighter brows, those whose brows have thinned due to aging, or those who want to compliment their features by achieving the eyebrows they were never born with but have always wanted. It’s safe for all skin types and is the perfect alternative for those tired of using cosmetics to draw in their brows daily.
Increase Collagen Production and Restore Youthful Skin
Collagen induction treatments are the next best thing to the fountain of youth, so the sooner you begin treatment, the better. They are natural, chemical-free treatments that will deliver incredible results and improve different skin conditions. Since you may benefit from one or more of these treatments, we can evaluate your skin, learn more about your collagen-boosting goals, and design your skin care treatment plan. Contact us at Therapy World Medcial Spa today to schedule your consultation.
Sapphire 3 Photo-Abrasion
At Therapy World Medical Spa, we use the Sapphire 3 Photo-Abrasion system, a crystal-free device with diamond and sapphire tips. This device can effectively exfoliate different areas of the body and face to promote skin health. You’ll experience some incredible results, results incomparable with any exfoliating treatment you’ve ever experienced before. Once the exfoliating step is over, we will use a combination of red LED light with microcurrent energy and blue LED light to perfect your skin.
What It Treats
Exfoliating treatments like the Sapphire 3 Photo-Abrasion system are designed to improve skin health in all different patients. Still, this treatment also combats some of the most common signs of aging and resolves skin imperfections. It’s an effective treatment that can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, lighten or eliminate the different forms of hyperpigmentation, promote hydrated skin, treat acne and acne scars, shrink pores, and help patients experience a brighter and more even complexion.
The Treatment Techniques
Unlike typical microdermabrasion treatments, this one targets various skin concerns with different skincare techniques. Not only will you experience deep exfoliation with the diamond and sapphire-tipped device, but you’ll also experience the benefits of microcurrent technology and red and blue light LED therapy treatment. This multifaceted approach to skin rejuvenation will help you achieve some beautiful post-treatment results that will continue to improve with each treatment you schedule.
The primary purpose of this treatment is to exfoliate the skin. The treatment begins with microdermabrasion, and the sapphire and diamond tips will remove the top layer of the skin, leaving a healthier, younger layer below. We can customize this aspect of the treatment based on your needs and will apply the necessary pressure to deliver the right depth of exfoliation to the skin.
LED Light Therapy: Red And Blue LED Light
Red LED light is known for its collagen-boosting benefits, which can help smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Aside from promoting collagen synthesis, red LED lights are anti-inflammatory and calm the skin. Blue LED light is an oxygenating light and is both anti-aging and antibacterial when applied to the skin. It helps break down bacteria in the skin’s pores, which often contributes to acne and breakouts. Blue LED light promotes skin clarity and gives the skin the oxygen it needs for optimal health.
In addition to LED light therapy, this treatment also includes microcurrent use, known for its ability to lift the skin. The microcurrent device can tighten the muscles in the treatment area and promote healthy connective tissue, which leads to wrinkle reduction in the treatment area. We use microcurrent during this treatment to help lift the skin, improve skin elasticity, increase circulation, and treat some more common signs of aging.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
You will benefit from one treatment, but the best results appear after a series of treatments. It typically takes several treatments with one to two weeks between each to achieve the best results. Then, after completing your treatment plan, regularly scheduled maintenance appointments will help keep your skin exfoliated so you can maintain your results long-term.
How Long Do Treatments Take?
The treatment process, from start to finish, takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes to complete. Your treatment may be longer if you want to combine this treatment with other skin-perfecting treatments. At your initial consultation, we can give you more details about what to expect on the day of your appointment.
Is There Any Downtime?
After your treatment, you won’t have to plan around downtime. The treatment process itself is completely painless and relaxing, so all you have to do is arrive and let our estheticians take care of the rest. You won’t have to take time off work or follow a lengthy list of post-treatment care instructions.
After your treatment, it’s important that you take advantage of your healthy, exfoliated complexion and apply medical-grade skin care products morning and evening. The treatment removes the dead skin cell barrier, opening up your skin to better absorb any topical products applied post-treatment. We can provide you with skin care recommendations so you can enhance and maintain your results.
Experience a Powerful Exfoliating Treatment
Beautiful skin is within your reach, and it begins with exfoliation. If you want to experience an exfoliating treatment unlike any other, we can help. We will meet with you to discuss your skin’s needs, your skincare goals, and your concerns and then determine if the Sapphire 3 Photo-Abrasion treatment is right for you. Once you undergo treatment, you’ll see immediate results that will continue to improve with each treatment you schedule. Contact us today at Therapy World Medical Spa to schedule your consultation.
LED Light Therapy Treatments
LED light therapy treatments can accomplish the different skin care goals of all types of patients. This treatment process involves the use of LEDs, an abbreviation for light emitting diodes, which come through a specialized device that emits this safe form of lighting to the skin. During treatment, the skin absorbs the light and will exhibit all the benefits both post-treatment and over time. It’s a completely safe, non-thermal, and non-invasive treatment that results in natural skin rejuvenation and a beautiful, radiant, glowing complexion.
The Different Treatment Options
At Therapy World Medical Spa, we offer LED light therapy with four primary colors: red, green, blue, and amber light to accomplish different skin care goals. Each of these lights benefits the skin in different ways, and some patients may benefit from one color or a combination of all four. These LED lights aim to increase cellular function, improve skin tone and elasticity, and combat active acne while simultaneously reducing the number of acne breakouts and helping treat and smooth lines and wrinkles.
Red LED Light
Red LED light is primarily known for its collagen-boosting benefits. It can help smooth lines and wrinkles, help reduce the appearance of redness with anti-inflammatory benefits, and also help treat acne. Sessions with red LED lights are safe and non-invasive. You don’t have to worry about any side effects or risks and instead can expect innumerable benefits. On the cellular level, red light is thought to be so effective because it strengthens the mitochondria of cells. One of the benefits of using red light to promote collagen production is that it doesn’t heat or damage the skin like many other forms of laser light. Aside from improving lines and wrinkles, it can also:
- Decrease inflammation
- Relieve pain
- Improve joint health
- Promote a healthier complexion
- Treat Psoriasis
- Promote tissue repair
- Reduce the appearance of facial scars
- Repair sun-damaged skin
Green LED Light
Green LED light is primarily known for its brightening effect on the skin and is the perfect LED light therapy treatment for those who want to combat the different types of hyperpigmentation. It has a calming effect on the skin and can help reduce brown spots, sunspots, and dark under-eye circles. Green LED light can also help promote improved sleep, reduce skin inflammation, and help facilitate a healthier appearance. It also can contribute to collagen production and heal acne. Those who suffer from chronic skin redness conditions like rosacea can benefit from green LED light treatments as it helps decrease skin inflammation and redness.
Blue LED Light
Blue LED light treatments are known for destroying the bacteria that cause acne on the skin. It’s so effective because it breaks down and destroys bacteria in the cells that contribute to acne, preventing that bacteria from causing acne lesions. It’s a healing light that can help promote a clear and even skin tone. If you suffer from acne, blue light LED treatments can make all the difference in your skin’s appearance, health, and clarity.
Amber (Yellow) LED Light
Amber light, also known as yellow LED light, is beneficial for those who want anti-inflammatory benefits. Amber LED light helps promote cellular growth and repair, helps combat sun damage, and can also treat skin redness. It also promotes lymphatic flow in the body, which can help promote a healthy and clear complexion by moving toxins out of the face. LED amber light is a good option for all different patients because it perfects the complexion in different ways.
What Happens During a Treatment?
This treatment process is completely painless, non-invasive, and relaxing. You’ll be situated on one of our treatment benches during your treatment, and we may apply topical solutions as needed to your skin before beginning the treatment. You’ll wear protective eyewear to ensure that your eyes are shielded from the LED light during treatment. Then, we will apply the LED lights to help target your skin condition. You can undergo treatment with one LED light or all four for the most comprehensive results.
A Customized Treatment Protocol
Before beginning the treatment process, we will meet with you to evaluate your skin. We will explain the purpose of the different LED light colors and what they treat while also evaluating your skin concerns in person to determine which treatment plan is right for you. Some patients may need several LED light therapy sessions to achieve their skincare goals. For example, patients with moderate to severe acne may need several blue light treatments to destroy the acne-causing bacteria and promote healthy, clear skin. Since different colors accomplish different goals, each treatment plan for each patient will look different. Once we complete your initial consultation, we can give you details about your treatment plan and how often you should schedule these treatments to achieve your desired skin goals.
Who Is a Candidate?
Almost everyone is a treatment candidate for LED light therapy. Because it’s completely non-invasive and doesn’t damage the skin on any level but only delivers multi-faceted benefits to the skin, patients with all different skin concerns can safely undergo their treatment and experience unique benefits. An initial consultation will help determine which of these light treatments can help you reach your skincare goals.
Perfect Your Skin With LED Light Therapy
If you want to safely and naturally improve your skin, you may be the perfect candidate for LED light therapy treatments. We can evaluate your skin to determine which combination of light treatments will help you achieve noticeable improvements in the health and quality of your skin. Contact us today at Therapy World Medical Spa to schedule your consultation.
This powerful facial uses patented vortex technology to perfect the skin. When you schedule treatments at our office, you’ll experience not the standard three-step treatment but a four-step process that includes cleansing, extractions, exfoliation, and deep skin hydration. We finish the treatment with LED light therapy to perfect the skin and help patients take their results to the next level with the power of different colored LED lights. It’s completely customizable and targets a whole host of skin concerns. Everyone is a candidate, and amazing results are guaranteed.
What It Treats
The HydraFacial is versatile. Patients with all different skin concerns can schedule this treatment and expect results. This treatment literally does everything from treating hyperpigmentation to helping improve acne-prone skin. Plus, we can customize it with different serums and techniques to focus on your specific skin condition or area of concern.
Our Four Step Treatment Process
The HydraFacial was originally designed for patients suffering from severely dehydrated skin. Over time, a three-step treatment has evolved into a four-step protocol. This hydrating facial is a perfect solution for patients with all different skin concerns and can help meet the needs of different skin types during one treatment.
Step One: Dermaplaning
Instead of using salicylic acid or a low-strength glycolic acid to begin the treatment, we start by dermaplaning, which can help prevent irritation and inflammation while effectively removing the dead skin cell barrier. Dermaplaning allows the treatment to effectively target different skin concerns without those dead skin cells getting in the way. We’ll use a medical-grade scalpel and gently pass it back and forth over your skin to remove dead skin cells, buildup, fine hair, and any debris.
Step Two: Microdermabrasion
After dermaplaning, we use a diamond microdermabrasion device to exfoliate the superficial layers of the skin to open up the pores for the next step and help promote increased cellular turnover.
Step Three: Skin Infusions And Extractions
During the third step, we will use the two-tube device to infuse the skin with customized serums while also removing impurities from the skin.
Step Four: Hyaluronic Acid Mask And LED Light Therapy
At the end of the treatment, we will apply a hyaluronic acid mask to moisturize the skin and then use LED light therapy. At the end of the treatment, we will use our LED light to deliver safe light to the skin, which your skin will absorb to help perfect your complexion and treat different skin conditions. The red LED light is anti-inflammatory and helps boost collagen. The blue LED light breaks down acne-causing bacteria in the pores to promote clear skin, and the green LED light helps promote skin clarity by targeting hyperpigmentation. Finally, the yellow amber LED light helps promote anti-inflammatory benefits and is a good color for general skin health.
What To Expect
When you schedule this treatment, expect a relaxing 30-minute process. We used two tubes during the treatment process, one to deliver the nutrient-rich serums and the other to remove impurities from the skin. As one tube infuses serums into the skin, the other will remove superficial dirt and environmental pollutants from the skin. We will go through the four-step process to cleanse, purify, exfoliate, nourish, and give your skin a LED light therapy treatment. When the treatment is over, you can expect a healthy, post-treatment glow lasting for several weeks. You won’t have to worry about downtime, but using the right skin care products post-treatment can help enhance and maintain your results long-term.
When To Schedule Treatments
You can safely schedule this skin-perfecting treatment every month to improve your skin. It’s a skin rejuvenating and enhancing treatment that can help keep your skin looking its best from one month to the next. If you’re unsure how often to schedule your treatments or want to schedule them in advance so that you don’t miss an appointment, we can help you determine the best treatment schedule to improve your skin over time. You can schedule this treatment at any point because you will achieve better skin when you do. However, some patients like to plan their treatment schedule to coincide with special events. Since this treatment doesn’t make your skin inflamed or irritated, you can successfully schedule it before your big day to achieve beautiful, red carpet-worthy skin.
Who Is It Right for?
The good news about the HydraFacial is that everyone is a candidate. From those with the most hyper-sensitive skin to those with acne, this treatment can be completely customized down to the serums used, and the LED light applied, making it an effective treatment for all patients with different skin types and conditions. Before your treatment, we will meet with you to discuss your skincare goals so that we can accurately customize your treatment to meet those needs.
If you’re interested in a treatment that is more than just an average facial and will make your skin look better guaranteed, we can help. We will answer your questions about the HydraFacial, evaluate your skin, and create a customized treatment plan with treatments that will help you achieve the most beautiful complexion possible. Contact us today at Therapy World Medical Spa to schedule your consultation.
Our dermaplaning treatments are effective as stand-alone treatments, but they also are the perfect add-on to other in-office skincare treatments because of how they enhance the treatment results. This treatment delivers physical exfoliation to the skin. It’s a simple, non-invasive treatment that promotes increased cellular turnover, brightens the skin, and improves skin tone and texture. As an exfoliating treatment, it enhances other skin care treatments. When performed alongside those treatments, it will eliminate the dead skin cell barrier so that any skin-perfecting products or techniques used during the treatment process can better target the skin without any interference.
How It Works
During the treatment, dead skin cells, buildup, debris, and fine hair will be removed from the surface of the skin. By removing the dead skin cells, the treatment allows for new cells to replace them while also allowing topical products to better absorb into the skin. We will use a medical-grade, sterile scalpel during the treatment and hold it at a 45° angle to gently pass across the skin’s surface. These gentle passes allow the blade to remove the dead skin cell barrier and all of the dead skin cells, also known as corneocytes.
The Truth About At-Home Dermaplaning
Many companies market at-home dermaplaning tools promising that patients can achieve the same results of this in-office treatment from the comfort of their own homes. However, other than a trained esthetician, no one should attempt to perform this treatment at home, especially not with a medical-grade scalpel. Estheticians who perform dermaplaning undergo advanced training to complete the treatment without cutting, scarring, or damaging the skin. Many people who attempt to do this at home may end up with moderate to severe cuts on the skin that can result in scarring. It’s important to leave dermaplaning treatments to the professionals because when you do, you will experience all the rewards of the treatments without any risks.
What It Treats
Dermaplaning removes the top layer of the skin and, in doing so, can help eliminate unwanted facial hair, whether that’s lighter hair, medium tone hair, or darker hair. It can also help promote increased collagen and elastin production, which will help reduce the appearance of acne scars. It brightens the complexion, makes the skin softer and smoother, and can help enhance the complexion by repairing sun-damaged skin. It also improves skin hydration, brightens dull skin, and smoothes wrinkles.
The Perfect Add-On To Skincare Treatments
Whether you want to add this form of physical exfoliation to your in-office skincare treatments or want to schedule it as a stand-alone treatment, we can create a plan that’s right for you.
Your Treatment Plan
You can safely schedule dermaplaning treatments every four months because it takes about 30 days for skin cells to complete a growth cycle. You can schedule this as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with a chemical peel, a facial, or even a microneedling treatment. Once we evaluate your skin, we can give you details about how you should space out your treatments to achieve the best results.
Who Is a Candidate?
The best candidates for this treatment are patients using aggressive topical products like those with retinol, glycolic acid, Retin-A, and high-strength salicylic acids on a regular basis. Those who want to promote accelerated anti-aging benefits and skin renewal can schedule this treatment or add it to other in-office skin care treatments to help at-home products work even better and enhance treatment results. Those whose skin is sensitive by nature or has become more sensitive as a result of Retin-A use can use dermaplaning in place of more aggressive hair removal treatments like waxing to avoid irritation and inflammation. This treatment can replace waxing which can aggressively rip or damage areas of the skin in an effort to remove fine facial hair.
When To Avoid Treatment
Patients with active acne or a skin infection in the planned treatment area will not qualify for treatment. Once the acne or infection has healed, those patients will be able to safely schedule and undergo treatment.
Exfoliate Your Skin With a Simple Skincare Treatment
If you are interested in learning more about this treatment and want to find out if it’s right for you, we can give you more details about the treatment after evaluating your skin to create a customized plan unique to your skin’s needs. Contact us at Therapy World Medical Spa today to schedule your consultation.
We offer three different types of peels categorized by their strength. Not every patient will qualify for every peel because some skin types can’t and shouldn’t undergo treatment with certain strength peels. Ethnicity, lifestyle, whether you’re taking prescription or non-prescription drugs, dietary habits, and any existing health conditions are all factors that can determine whether you qualify for certain peels or not. For that reason, if you’re interested in a chemical peel, it’s important that we schedule a consultation so that we can find out more about your background and your skin to determine which peel is right for you. At Therapy World Medical Spa, we offer over 150 peels, including popular peels from some of our skincare lines like the Rhonda Allison Skincare Line, organic options, and peels by other reputable manufacturers.
Superficial peels are the lightest and are a good option for those who want results without significant downtime. They’re also perfect for those with more sensitive skin and those who have never experienced a chemical peel before and want to start slow. They remove the top layer of skin and can treat noticeable skin concerns like acne, dryness, pore skin tone, lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture. Patients can effectively schedule superficial peels monthly or bi-monthly to safely perfect their skin.
Some patients begin treatment with superficial peels and then move to medium-depth chemical peels to address other problematic skin concerns. A medium-strength peel is stronger than a superficial peel because it not only removes the top layer of the skin, known as the epidermis, but it can also penetrate deeper to remove parts of the middle layer. In doing so, it combats deeper wrinkles, etched lines, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and an uneven skin tone. Creating a controlled burn in the skin also helps the body replace damaged skin cells with healthier, younger ones and increases collagen and elastin production, which leads to visibly firmer and healthier-looking skin.
A deep chemical peel contains the strongest combination of acids. It is designed to remove the damaged layer of the skin with acids that aggressively resurface the skin, providing the deepest level of exfoliation. A deep peel will reach the dermis and require some downtime but delivers dramatic results. If your skin can tolerate a deep peel and you have noticeable skin conditions and concerns that aren’t responding to other treatments or lighter peels, the deep peel may be the right option. For some, only one deep peel is required over a lifetime, while others can safely schedule them yearly to maintain skin health.

This anti-aging injectable can be used as a medical and cosmetic treatment. Not only can it smooth wrinkles on the upper half of the face, but it can also be used to treat some medical conditions. It is a neuromodulator, and its active ingredient is a neurotoxin, a highly purified protein called botulinum toxin A that works on the muscular level to relax muscles to combat the signs of aging and alleviate pain and discomfort. Once injected into a muscle, the injectable’s active ingredient blocks communication between nerve signals and the muscles so that they no longer contract. When the muscles remain relaxed, wrinkles and fine lines disappear, providing excellent wrinkle reduction. Aside from relaxing the muscles to promote anti-aging benefits, Botox also alleviates pain and discomfort, including providing migraine relief, alleviating TMJ pain, and resolving hyperhidrosis.
Cosmetic Uses: Treating Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Wrinkles that appear on the upper half of the face, including the forehead, between the brows, and at the outer corners of the eyes, typically form from a combination of thinning skin and repetitive muscle movements over time. As you age, collagen and elastin loss and decreased hyaluronic acid content in the skin contribute to weaker skin, which begins to have less tolerance for expressions. Lines form when the skin can’t bounce back as easily, but Botox injections can smooth these wrinkles and fine lines to restore youthful-looking skin. It’s a versatile cosmetic treatment that is FDA-approved to effectively treat lines and wrinkles on the forehead, frown lines between the brows, and crow’s feet around the eyes.
Wrinkle Reduction And Wrinkle Removal
This injectable is both prescriptive and preventative. It treats existing wrinkles and fine lines and is, therefore, a wrinkle removal treatment. It is also a form of wrinkle reduction as it relaxes the muscles to soften the expressions, which helps prevent the formation of new or deeper lines.
Aside from its well-known role as an anti-aging treatment, Botox also has some medical uses. When injected into specific muscles, it can treat and alleviate pain and discomfort associated with specific muscular-related conditions. It can also resolve hyperhidrosis, a condition in which patients chronically and excessively sweat, typically from the underarms. It’s an effective way to experience migraine relief and alleviate TMJ pain.
Patients who experience frequent migraines often try different prescription medications to relieve their pain. Migraine pain can be debilitating, and many patients have found Botox successful, as injections into specific muscles in the head can help alleviate pain. If you’re suffering from migraine pain and want migraine relief, injections with this injectable may be the treatment option that successfully reduces or eliminates migraines so that you can enjoy an improved quality of life.
TMJ treatment with Botox targets tense muscles in and around the jaw contributing to TMJ pain. Injecting this neuromodulator into the muscles responsible for tension and pain causes the muscles to relax, which alleviates pain and discomfort. If you’ve tried different treatment options to resolve TMJ pain, using this cosmetic injectable may be what you need to finally experience true and lasting relief.
Hyperhidrosis is a condition defined by excessive sweating. This profuse sweating can come from the armpits, the hands, or the feet. It most commonly affects patients’ underarm area; even strong antiperspirants cannot successfully resolve this condition. However, Botox has proven to be an effective solution for hyperhidrosis, and injections into some specific areas of the armpit will block sweat glands and, in doing so, eliminate excessive sweating. This is good news for those whose confidence and self-image have been affected by this condition.
How It Works
Regardless of whether you want to address wrinkles and lines on the upper half of your face or use this injectable treatment to resolve medical conditions, the treatment process is virtually the same. It begins with a consultation during which we will evaluate your desired treatment areas, learn more about your medical background, and confirm that this cosmetic injectable is a safe treatment option for you.
What To Expect From Your Treatment
When you arrive for your scheduled treatment, we will ensure that the area is clean and dry and, if necessary, apply a topical numbing solution. Most patients describe the treatment as tolerable and virtually painless, but you may prefer a topical numbing, and if so, we can accommodate your preferences. Depending on what area you choose to treat, whether you want to use Botox for cosmetic purposes, medical purposes, or both, we will administer a strategic and precise number of injections into the muscles in the treatment area with the necessary number of units to help you reach your goals. The treatment takes less than 20 minutes to complete, and you can resume your normal daily activities once it is over.
Relax Your Muscles and Reach Your Medical or Cosmetic Goals
This treatment option can help different patients with unique needs and concerns reach their goals. If you’re interested in wrinkle removal, wrinkle reduction, or want to treat other medical conditions, we can give you more information and design a treatment plan for you.

Acupuncture is a healing treatment that dates back thousands of years. During the treatment, tiny, hair-thin needles are inserted into different points on the body to address unique concerns.
This treatment is a form of Chinese medicine that can help address muscular pain, acute pain, chronic pain, headaches, stress, medical conditions, fertility, and even aging issues. The needles used during treatment restore balance to the body, relax muscles, and reduce tension.
Cosmetic acupuncture focuses on facial cosmetic concerns. It can increase collagen and elastin production, reverse some signs of aging, increase blood flow and improve facial muscle tone. It can also help brighten the complexion, shrink pores, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
During the treatment, your acupuncturist will insert hair-thin needles into some specific points on the face. These needles will increase circulation to promote a healthy glow, stimulate collagen and elastin production to improve skin elasticity and strength, improve muscle tone to restore a youthful appearance, and improve skin health.
Customizing Your Treatment Plan
Since acupuncture is a versatile treatment, we require an initial consultation before beginning a session. We will ask you some questions about your medical history, current concerns, and lifestyle. We will create a treatment plan that’s right for you. The treatment itself is painless, and you’ll barely feel the needles.
Experienced acupuncturists know how and where to insert these tiny needles without causing discomfort. Once inserted, the needles remain in the designated points for anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes based on the acupuncturist’s recommendation. The treatment is relaxing and allows you to decompress from daily life’s stresses.
A Treatment Without Downtime
Once it’s over, you can resume your normal daily activities. There aren’t any side effects or downtime, and you will feel more relaxed immediately following your treatment. Depending on what you want to address, you may notice some initial results, but the best results tend to appear after following a specific treatment plan based on your unique needs.
Am I a Candidate?
If you are looking for a natural and effective treatment that can help address chronic health conditions, help you de-stress, improve your skin, and which doesn’t result in any negative reactions but will help improve your health on different levels, you may be the perfect candidate for acupuncture.
If your specific health or skin conditions haven’t responded to traditional treatments, acupuncture may be the missing link in your search for a solution for different health and wellness-related concerns.
