Are there different types of aesthetic services?

Botox® and neuromodulators

Botox and neuromodulators, such as Dysport®, Daxxify®, and Xeomin®, temporarily relax facial muscles by blocking nerve signals, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines for a smoother and more youthful complexion.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers involve injecting gel-like substances beneath the skin to add volume, smooth wrinkles, and contour facial features, restoring a natural and refreshed appearance.  He can use subcutansous PDO threads to assist in collagan production and tighten saggy skin and even promote regression of wrinkles/static rhyatids.


Kybella is an injectable fat dissolver containing deoxycholic acid that targets submental fullness beneath the chin, and other areas.  Injections can dissolve fat and permanently eliminate fat cells and enhancing jawline definition.


Microneedling uses tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries, triggering the body's natural healing process and promoting collagen and elastin production for improved skin texture.

Opus Plasma®

Opus Plasma is a resurfacing treatment that utilizes radiofrequency energy to create micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin rejuvenation with minimal downtime.

PDO thread lifts

PDO thread lifts use dissolvable threads to lift and tighten sagging skin, stimulating collagen production and providing a nonsurgical facelift effect with minimal recovery time. This can be done alone w hyaluronic acid serums or with the addition of biologically available stem cells or even PRP.  PRP is a form of cosmetic injectable treatment that uses the patient's own platelet rich plasma. The plasma component contains stem cells and growth rich platelets. When injected back into the skin, during a procedure such as microneedling, it accelerates the body's natural production of collagen and elastin to provide overall skin rejuvenation.


Latisse is an FDA-approved prescription treatment that promotes eyelash growth, resulting in longer, darker, and fuller lashes.
