The aging process is sadly unavoidable. Genetics, sun exposure, gravity, lifestyle, illness, medications, and stress are a few reasons age creeps up on us. Father Time is not helping matters either as the years just seem fly by with each and every year. One day you are carefree and the next minute you will look in the mirror and say, “How did I get so old?” Where did these lines come from? How did I get these bags under my eyes? Why am I so saggy? Why does my face have so many age spots?
Fortunately, with the advancements made today in aesthetic procedures, there are many wonderful options without having surgery.
We can all agree that when you look good, you feel good too!

MINT™ (Minimally Invasive Non-Surgical Thread) PDO Threads
A thread lift is a procedure that uses dissolvable sutures or threads to tighten and lift the skin. It’s a quick non-surgical procedure that can be done in under 45 minutes. Polydiaxanone (PDO) threads lift useing a biodegradable polyester suture. The presence of these sutures triggers your body to produce more collagen.
Thread Lift is a non-surgical minimally invasive procedure that uses the PDO threads to lift and contour the skin. A local anesthetic is applied to promote comfort during the procedure. As the body heals, these threads dissolve, and collagen is produced in its place to keep the skin lifted and supported. One can immediately resume their daily lives, but vigorous exercise must be avoided during the recovery time which is 1-2 weeks. The treatment lasts 12-18 months.
Smooth Threads are shorter PDO threads which provide tightening and lift in smaller areas. These too will dissolve and stimulate collagen replacement.

This treatment is intended to remove the outermost layers of the skin so it will reveal radiant and a polished finish.

Chemical peels come in different strengths and the stronger the strength is, the deeper the peel will go. There are various types of peels for different types of skin.
