Time For a Little Valentine’s Va-Va-Voom! With These Beautifying Treatments

Why settle for a box of chocolates when you can have healthy and smooth skin? Show your complexion a little love with these fantastic skin-beautifying solutions! 

In-Office Treatments 

Whether you have a date with your honey or just want to give yourself the gift of a beauty boost this Valentine’s Day, these services and treatments will have you looking as radiant as a bouquet of roses! 

Struggling with acne? Tired of painful and rough ingrown hairs? Want to do something about the chicken skin on your knees and elbows? Our state-of-the-art facilities offer comprehensive treatments for a wide variety of skin issues. 

Beautiful skin is healthy skin. If you have concerns about the texture or appearance of your skin, schedule an appointment with our board-certified dermatologists for a full consultation on your skin health. 


Did you know that St. Valentine is said to be a patron saint of young people? This year, celebrate him by preserving your youthful appearance! 

Botox is a widely used anti-wrinkle injection designed to treat dynamic wrinkles (lines and creases that develop after years of muscle activity, like smile lines or frown lines). It works by blocking the nerve signals to the muscles, which inhibits the contractions that cause wrinkles to deepen and become visible. Because the procedure effectively prevents involuntary facial tension, the result is a smoother, more relaxed, and youthful appearance. 

One Botox appointment typically lasts less than one hour, with no downtime. The full effects of the procedure are generally noticeable within one week. Touch-up treatments are recommended approximately every six months. 

This treatment freshens and rejuvenates while allowing your natural radiance to shine through. 

Dermal Fillers 

Dermal fillers are volumizing injections that reduce the appearance of lines and add fullness to the mouth and cheeks, depending upon the treatment you select. The results are natural-looking, immediate, and long-lasting. 

Dermal fillers are extremely effective treatments for the following issues: 

  • Mild skin laxity 
  • Lack of fullness in the lips, cheeks, jaws, or under-eye areas 
  • Pitted acne scarring 
  • Moderate facial creases or folds 

Dermal filler treatment is fast, comfortable, minimally invasive, and requires no downtime. Results can last as long as several years, depending on the type of filler used. 

IPL Photofacial 

Give yourself the gift of a brighter, smoother, more even complexion with an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photofacial! Say goodbye to lingering acne scars, discoloration, and dullness with this non-invasive, highly effective treatment. 

IPL photofacials are excellent options for people who wish to correct a wide variety of skin issues. This treatment stimulates collagen production and leverages the healing powers of the body to facilitate cell regeneration. This technology releases multiple pulsed light wavelengths that penetrate deep into the skin without damaging the external layer. 

IPL photofacials correct a wide range of skin conditions, including the following: 

  • Acne and acne scars 
  • Enlarged pores 
  • Spider veins 
  • Fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Hyperpigmentation 

Not only are IPL photofacials great for the face – they can be used anywhere on the body! This includes the following areas: 

  • Arms 
  • Back 
  • Chest 
  • Hands 
  • Shoulders 
  • Neck 

IPL photofacial treatments do not require downtime, and results are apparent within one or two days post-procedure.
