Whether you’re concerned about aging skin, hyperpigmentation, scars, acne, or other skin conditions, it’s important to use skin care products that are formulated to address your particular concerns.

The longer and thicker your eyelashes are, the bigger, brighter, and more attractive your eyes look. Unfortunately, as you age and your estrogen levels decline, your eyelashes begin to thin and lose their length. If you’re concerned about the length or thickness of your lashes, GrandeLASH-MD may be just what you need to restore your beautiful, lush eyelashes. GrandeLASH-MD is an eyelash growth serum that combines a proprietary blend of vitamins, peptides, amino acids, and conditioners to promote significant eyelash growth. With daily application, you’ll begin to notice a difference within 4 weeks, though it takes about 3 months to see full effects of the treatment.
BioCorneum® is a silicone-based gel that can help significantly reduce scarring at the site of a surgical incision or an accident requiring stitches. Treating the site with silicone gel helps create an ideal environment (breathable, flexible, and waterproof) that allows the wound to heal while keeping scarring at a minimum. BioCorneum® is the only FDA-cleared silicone scar treatment with SPF30.
BioCorneum® is highly effective in reducing the appearance of scars from cosmetic surgery. Our office will provide instructions for use.
If you’re like most of our patients, you’ll be eager to show off the results of your cosmetic procedure as soon as possible. But of course, you’ll want to wait for bruising and swelling of the treatment area to subside. With Arnica Forte™, that time may come sooner than you anticipate. Arnica Forte™ is an oral supplement that expedites the healing process. It contains bromelain (extracted from pineapple), homeopathic Arnica Montana, bioflavonoids, and antioxidants, and it’s been shown to speed healing by up to 50%! By taking Arnica Forte™ for up to 2 days before and 6 days after, you can minimize bruising and swelling from Botox®, dermal fillers, and surgical procedures.
Arnica Forte™ is only available through a medical doctor. Our office will advise you on dosage.
