Botox®, also known as Botulinum Toxin was developed to treat the visual signs of aging by reducing or removing wrinkles. The procedure is considered a safe, effective way of treating aging skin. Common areas for Botox® injections include horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows and "crow's feet" around the eyes. Botox® has proven to be the best non-surgical form of facial rejuvenation and is capable of producing phenomenal improvements in your appearance. Reasons for Considering a Botox Treatment: Excessive facial wrinkles. Large wrinkles or furrows in your forehead. Small wrinkles or “crow’s feet” around your eyes. A vertical “frown line” between your eyebrows. General Procedure The procedure works by altering the facial muscles beneath the skin that are related to wrinkles. A cream with local anesthetic will be placed on your skin prior to treatment, and ice will be immediately applied upon completion of the Botox® treatment. Typically a small amount (1-2 cc’s) of Botox® is injected into the area of the wrinkle. Botox® works by blocking the impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles, thereby relaxing them. The result is the underlying facial muscles relax and the skin begins to smooth out. The effects of a Botox® treatment will last approximately three to six months after which the patient may choose to repeat the procedure. Recovery Process Patients generally return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure, however following the post-procedure guidelines will dramatically reduce the length and intensity of the recovery period. Patients should avoid engaging in heavy physical exercise, applying cosmetics, or laying down flat for a minimum of 4 hours after the injections. It is also advisable to avoid rubbing or massaging the injected area for at least 24 hours. We are able to treat the following areas with our injectables:
Using patented (MP)² technology, Venus Legacy utilizes multi-polar radio frequency and Pulsed Magnetic fields which produce a soothing and therapeutic heat matrix over the skin. Skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and cellulite reduction occur because the multi-polar radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This restoring response causes the skin to contract, achieving tighter skin, softening of wrinkles and reduced cellulite.

IPL - Skin Rejuvenation
IPL Photo Facial uses low-energy light that passes through the upper layers of your skin, leaving no damage behind. IPL Photo Facial also increases collagen production beneath the surface layers of your skin. This results in firmer, younger-looking skin. IPL Photo Facial can be used to treat: Age spots/ Brown Spots Hyperpigmentation Broken capillaries Fine lines and wrinkles Freckles Rosacea Large Pores Your skin may appear slightly flushed for several hours. Over the course of several days, the targeted areas will begin to darken and flake off. More than one treatment may be necessary to achieve desired results. Following a series of 4-6 treatments, you can anticipate healthy, rejuvenated skin. Full results should be visible in about a month, but many patients begin to see significant improvements in as little as two weeks. Pricing:
A vascular specific laser is used to treat various forms of skin conditions that have proven difficult to treat through the use of traditional medicine. A mild consistent energy is transmitted to the skin slowly heating up the desired area. Multiple layers are performed and reach maximum level based on the skin reaching a desired temperature. Laser Facial is used to treat the following: Rosacea Wrinkles Diffuse Redness Scar Revision Poikloderma of Civate Hyperpigmentation Mild Acne Hemangiomas Melasma
Laser Hair Removal
Our Laser hair removal systems gently remove unwanted hair safely and effectively on all skin types. Laser light energy creates heat as it passes through the skin and targets darker colored pigment, melanin, found in the follicle and hair. By heating up the hair follicle during its active phase, the laser disables the follicle’s ability to produce hair without affecting surrounding tissue. Our lasers safely treat all skin types. We utilize IPL, Alexandrite, Diode and YAG lasers. What to expect after treatment? Area may be pinkish immediately following the treatment. Due to the many cycle of hair growth, multiple treatments are required for optimal results. During your consultation, a specific treatment plan will be discussed for your desired result. Treatment can range between 4-12 week intervals. When scheduled for hair removal, avoid plucking, electrolysis or hair waxing for six weeks prior to treatment. Also, any hair should be completely removed by shaving the area no later than the evening before your appointment, and your skin should be thoroughly cleansed, removing any makeup, creams, oils, topical anesthetics or skin tanning products before laser treatment. The intended treatment area should not be exposed to sunlight or tanning booth light for 14 days prior to treatment.
Nail Fungal Treatment
A gentle laser beam targets the specific pathogen that causes toenail and fingernail infection (Onychomycosis) in and under the nail. The laser delivers a controlled beam that temporarily warms the nail while no harm is done to the surrounding tissue or skin. Results can take up to 3 months for visible improvement and 9-12 months for the nail to grow out completely. Recommended treatments may take up to 5 sessions with 4-6 week intervals.
Laser Skin Tightening
Laser Skin Tightening is a revolutionary new technology that facilitates the tightening of the skin through a non-surgical, non-ablative procedure. Using infrared light, the laser delivers controlled pulses of light to the skin, creating precise, deep dermal heating, while limiting the penetration depth of the heat to the deeper tissues. This dermal heating is a highly effective and safe method for tightening the skin, stimulating collagen production and remodeling, leading to a more youthful appearance. The area will be slightly pinkish immediately following the treatment. You can resume normal activity immediately following the treatment.
Laser Vein Treatment
Laser pulses and penetrates the superficial blood vessel. The heat generated from the laser coagulates the blood inside the vessel causing it to collapse and seal. Over the next few weeks, the vessel will disappear and the cells will remove all the blood. The laser treatment allows the delivery of a precise dosage of energy to each blood vessel without injuring any nearby skin surface. Blood vessel treatments on the face require the use of a green light laser. Once the vessels are targeted with the laser, the vessel wall collapses and are absorbed by the body. Generally 2-3 treatments will be needed 4 weeks apart. The treatment area is red initially but this resolves within a few hours. Rarely a bruise may result but generally there are minimal side effects. Make up can be applied immediately after the treatment.
Microdermabrasion is the most effective, non-invasive skin resurfacing process available. Using a specially designed handpiece, a spray of crystals is directed onto the skin at a high velocity and then immediately vacuumed away, resulting in the removal of the top layer of the strateum corneum. The fresh skin just below the surface is then exposed, creating a glowing new complexion. You may return to normal activity immediately, and can be combined with facials, chemical peels or laser procedures. Microdermabrasion can be effective in reducing the appearance of: • Hyperpigmentation • Fine Lines and Winkles • Acne Scars • Blending Post-Laser areas • Sun Damage • Uneven Skin Tones • Enlarged Pores • Age Spots Results will be noticeable from the first treatment, however a full treatment protocol is 5-8 treatments with one treatment every 10-14 days and maintenance visits every 2-3 months thereafter.
Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy or PCIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. A topical serum is also applied to clean skin (in most cases your practitioner will use a hyaluronic acid) this soothing product is chosen to help the Collagen P.I.N. Safety Micro-needle Cartridge glide smoothly across the skin’s surface while delivering the mechanical injury necessary to bring about the necessary change, and simultaneously delivering Hyaluronic Acid (HA) – the building blocks for healthy new skin – deep into the skin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of softer wrinkles. Automated micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels which allow topical serums, and creams to be absorbed more effectively into the skin.
Permanent makeup can be applied in many styles and colors. Whatever you choose, you will wake up, shower, exercise, work, swim and go to bed always looking your best. No need to reapply your makeup throughout the day! Can be used to apply lip liner, full lips, eyebrows, eyeliners, molds and also cover up scars and skin discoloration.

Sclerotherapy is ideal for treating select spider veins that are clusters of red, blue or purple in color. These veins are common on the thighs, calves and ankles. This procedure involves injections of solution directly in the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel and over time fades in appearance. Improvements are seen after each treatment and multiple treatments may be required for desire results.
