Botox / Injectables
BOTOX®, Dysport® and Xeomin® are simple non-surgical treatments to reduce or eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and can also be used to prevent the lines from developing. Made from a purified protein, all can safely and successfully treat wrinkles that are caused by muscle contractions such as frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet and neck bands, giving you a refreshed, younger look. Botox also treats excessive sweating and TMJ.
Botox is the most popular noninvasive cosmetic procedure performed.
Dysport temporarily reduces the appearance of frown lines
Xeomin is known for its ability to relax targeted muscles
Dermal fillers are non-invasive, smooth injectable gels used to restore or add volume to the face. Dermal fillers can gently restore and refresh through plumping the skin, decreasing the deep lines, lifting the jowls and contouring the cheek, jaw, and chin while maintaining a natural appearance. Fillers vary in density (thickness) which determines which area they can be used in and helps achieve the desired result, whether that is to provide lift or contouring, create symmetry, or enhance a particular feature such as the chin. Many dermal fillers contain a compound that mimics the properties of a naturally occurring sugar molecule. This particular molecule assists in skin firmness and smoothness, by providing a kind of supporting network for other important structural tissue components, at the same time drawing moisture to the area and holding onto it. Over time, our natural levels of this compound diminish, which is where fillers can help – literally filling wrinkles and hollow areas from within.
KYBELLA® is an injectable formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. KYBELLA® is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® permanently destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once dissolved, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal. Fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through natural metabolic mechanisms. Additionally, KYBELLA® results in skin tightening.
B-12 plays an important role in the proper functioning of the brain, the cardiovascular and nervous systems, and blood cells. In fact, it’s involved in the metabolism of every cell of the body, including energy production. Symptoms of deficiency include, anemia, depression, fatigue, electrical charges in various parts of the body and tiredness. Vitamin B12 shots can help improve your sleep, increase your energy, normalize your metabolism and improve your mood. All of these factors may indirectly influence your ability to aid in weight loss. Vitamin B-12 shots can be given once a month.

Skin Resurfacing, Scar, Acne Treatments
We have two laser options to treat a number of skin concerns on both the face and body including skin discoloration, rough skin texture, scars, fine lines and wrinkles. The first option is the gold standard in skin rejuvenation laser resurfacing – the ICON 1540, a non-ablative erbium fractional laser that is part of the Cynosure Icon Aesthetic System. This laser delivers light to the skin through an array of high-precision microbeams that penetrate the skin deep into the dermis, which causes the skin to repair itself and replace old, damaged skin with new, younger, healthier skin. Treatment takes about 30 minutes, and should be spaced 3-6 weeks apart.
If downtime and extended treatment times don’t fit your schedule, PicoSure laser skin revitalization addresses skin disorders and imperfections quickly and efficiently. PicoSure gently delivers ultra-short pulses that penetrate and break down damaged skin cell layers until smoother and healthier skin is achieved. The treatment promotes collagen and elastin production and stimulates a non-traumatic tissue healing response. Laser skin rejuvenation has anti-aging benefits as aging skin layers are peeled away. Skin rejuvenation can be applied to face, neck, chest, legs, arms and hands. The PicoSure laser requires fewer treatments and can be done every 4-6 weeks and there is minimal downtime. The PicoSure laser can also be used on darker skin tones not previously able to be treated.
Take control of your hair loss. While there are many causes of premature hair loss, hormonal changes in the body and metabolic aging are the most common contributors. Through hair science we know that stem cells are a critical part of the solution. When using the AnteAGE Hair System, the youthful levels of bio-signals are increased which helps to slow hair loss and awaken dormant stem cell hair follicles.
The AnteAGE hair system is designed to maximize the rejuvenation of hair follicles by delivering dozens of scientifically proven active ingredients strategically to the scalp in precise and constant doses. Therapies like PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) are effective because they mimic the signals sent by the healthy stem cells. AnteAGE Hair System contains a more targeted formulation of growth factors which have been precisely engineered for efficient follicle stimulation.
SkinPen MicroNeedling is a medical-grade, state-of-the-art precision procedure available only through medical aesthetic practices. Also referred to microchanneling and microtherapy. With microneedling, the skin’s repair process is accelerated through the formation of microscopic channels, which also allow products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. AnteAGE Stem Cell Growth Factors + Cytokines Hair Microneedling Solution is added to the treatment area. Every hair follicle has a bulge of stem cells, which manage hair growth cycles. Cells use bio-signals calls Growth Factors to communicate. A sterile, disposable cartridge containing 12 tiny microneedles is attached to the tip of the pen. A thin layer of topical serum is applied to the skin, and the appropriate microchanneling depth of treatment is selected for a particular type of skin and location. Then the pen is glided across the targeted repair area in a gentle motion.
The procedure typically takes 30 minutes depending upon the size of the area to be treated and the time for the local anesthetic to take effect. One of the most significant advantages of hair restoration with Stem Cell Growth Factors + Cytokines is the fast treatment and lack of any needed recovery time. Depending on your profession, some patients like to take the remainder of the day off, but it would simply be for your comfort, and is not vital to the healing process. There are no incisions to care for and anesthesia is not necessary, so you will not be left feeling foggy or disoriented. You will need to avoid extended periods of sun exposure, but generally you can resume your daily routine immediately after treatment. Four to six treatments are recommended a month apart. An AnteAGE Hair SCS home care kit is required for use during the course of treatment ($240)
We use the PicoSure tattoo removal laser, which makes the process faster and more thorough. The biggest advance in laser tattoo removal technology over the past several years has been a faster pulse duration (pico vs. nano). During laser tattoo removal dual lasers are used to selectively target and destroy the tattoo without damaging the surrounding tissue, which eliminates scarring. Our lasers have differing wavelengths and pulse durations, and different laser beams are absorbed by specific colors, allowing our medical practitioners to choose the precise combination of lasers for the depth and color of a particular tattoo as well as for multicolored tattoos. Nitronox is available to patients who are anxious about the treatment. After treatment, the skin is more uniform and natural in appearance, although some possible changes in skin texture and color may be unavoidable. After your treatment, the area may be red, as if mildly sunburned, for several weeks. There may be some bruising, and with deeper tattoos, some bleeding is not uncommon. Recovery times depend on the extent of the treatment and the individual’s capacity to heal. Redness and sensitivity may continue for a few weeks, and there may be discoloration and a change in skin texture in the area, which will gradually improve. You should avoid exposing the treated area to the sun, as this may slow healing. A series of 2 to 8 treatments for one tattoo is not uncommon, and generally a minimum of 6 treatments is required. You need to allow at least a month between treatments, although 6-8 weeks is preferable.
Laser hair removal works by producing a beam of high-intensity light that penetrates deep into your skin tissue. This laser light delivers a controlled amount of focused heat, which is attracted to the pigment contained inside the hair follicle, thus destroying it while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. Nearly any area of the face and body can be treated with laser hair removal. This includes, but is not limited to arms, underarms, chest, back, neck, chin, and ears. Patients with lighter skin and darker hair typically require fewer sessions. Patients with darker skin may require more sessions for effective results to be achieved. Lasers do not see blond, red, gray, or white hair, so they cannot be removed with any laser. The reason for this is there is no melanin in the hair follicle and hence, no target for the laser. Because laser hair removal targets hair follicles during the growth cycle, typically 6 to 8 treatments are needed to catch all of the follicles at the right time.
Soma Aesthetics offers the collection of VI Peels.. VI Peels have several different options for anti-aging, acne, acne scars, surface lines and wrinkles, rough and scaly skin, pigmentation and lines. VI acne peels are safe for children as young as 13. Chemical peels are a rapid, easy way for patients to regenerate a healthy layer of skin on their face. They work by gently removing the outer layers of the skin, along with any blemishes that exist in those outer layers, such as skin pigmentation or fine lines. Chemical peels use a chemical solution that is applied to the face. This chemical solution works to remove the damaged layers of skin. After a few minutes, the solution is removed. Over the next several days, the damaged layers of skin will shed, while new layers underneath begin to grow. Overall, chemical peels even tone and texture while reducing the appearance of blemishes. A series of 3 peels, 4-6 weeks apart is recommended a month apart with maintenance peels as needed.
