The latest cosmetic injectable to treat facial wrinkles. Like Botox it uses botulinum toxin to relax the muscles of the upper face drastically reducing lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes. Studies show it lasts longer and acts quicker than its older competitor.
Dysport® is the latest cosmetic injectable approved by the FDA to treat facial wrinkles. As we age, dynamic wrinkles form in the upper regions of our face. Dynamic wrinkles include those lines across the forehead (horizontal rhytids), around the eyes (crow’s feet), and between the eyebrows (glabella).
Dysport® works by treating specific, wrinkle-causing facial muscles in order to eliminate the dynamic wrinkles.
Dysport® can provide a very natural appearing and dramatic improvement in your appearance. Dysport® treatments are performed in the comfort of our office. There is no down time with this procedure, and you can return to your regular daily activities immediately.
Like Botox Cosmetic®, Dysport® is an injectable form of botulinum toxin. Exactly how the two wrinkle-relaxers differ is not fully understood. Initial reports suggest that Dysport® may act quicker. Botox Cosmetic® takes three to five days to work, while Dysport® seems to work within one to two days. In some cases, wrinkles begin to fade as soon as 24 hours after receiving Dysport® treatment. This rapid response could be the deciding factor for a woman or man looking to improve their appearance before a big social event or meeting.
What’s more, the Botox Cosmetic® alternative may last longer than its predecessor. Some studies have shown that Dysport® injections may keep wrinkles at bay for six months or more, as opposed to the approximate 3-4 month time frame associated with Botox Cosmetic®.
Our Restylane® dermal fillers are injectable gels that add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. The gel is made from stabilized hyaluronic acid, specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid. The products work instantly with little to no down time to help you achieve the youthful appearance you want. The Restylane® family of products is versatile enough to treat several types of wrinkles including laugh lines (nasolabial folds), marionette lines, lipstick lines and lines between eyebrows (glabella area). Restylane® also adds beautiful fullness to lips, tear troughs and cheeks.
What to expect during your treatment:
Before treatment avoid using aspirin, NSAIDs (such as ibuprofen), St. John’s wort or high doses of vitamin E supplements. These agents may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site. You should tell Dr. McNeil if you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, she will prescribe medication to minimize recurrence.
After a consultation, Dr. McNeil will help you choose the right product for the desired effects. The treatment area is then thoroughly cleansed and a topical anesthetic is applied. The clear Restylane® gel is then injected into the treatment area using an ultra-fine needle to create the desired aesthetic effect. The Restylane-L® is combined with 0.3% lidocaine (a common anesthetic) to help reduce discomfort. The entire process generally takes less than 1 hour with minimal discomfort.
Post Treatment Instructions:
Studies show that a follow-up treatment at either 4.5 or 9 months can help refresh the immediate improvements of your initial treatment for up to 18 months! At least 95% of patients saw results for up to 18 months when they followed this Restylane® regimen.

Complimentary consultations for aesthetic services are held before any treatment begins. Our licensed aesthetician will perform a thorough skin analysis to evaluate your skin type, medical history, lifestyle, and desired results as well as address any questions or concerns.
The deluxe facial is our signature treatment and will be customized to your skincare needs. Includes skin analysis, double cleanse with steam, exfoliation, extractions as needed, masque, serum, eye care, lip care, moisturizer, and SPF.
Plant Stem Cell Enzymes are used to remove the top layer of dead skin cells and stimulate cellular turnover. This treatment can improve acne scars, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and texture. To maximize results, a minimum of 3 treatments are suggested 4-6 weeks apart.
Dermaplaning is an exfoliating technique that uses a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently remove vellus hair along with dead skin cells, which allows for better product absorption and/or makeup application. It can be combined with other medical treatments such as a chemical peel or microneedling to intensify results.
Microdermabrasion is a gentle exfoliating method that uses a diamond-tipped wand combined with vacuum suction to remove dead skin cells. This treatment boosts blood circulation, stimulates cell regeneration, and minimizes fine lines.
LED red light is designed to increase circulation and stimulate collagen, making it useful for those who are looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), microneedling uses a pen with a tip of multiple sterile needles to create a controlled wound. This encourages an inflammatory response, which stimulates collagen production and allows deeper layers of the skin to regenerate, revealing a youthful appearance. To maximize results, a minimum of 3 treatments are suggested 4-6 weeks apart. Includes skin analysis, double cleanse with steam, serum, eye care, lip care, moisturizer, and SPF.
WiQo is a chemical treatment that promotes natural skin regeneration in a gradual, painless, and delicate way without peeling.

Includes skin analysis, double cleanse with steam, masque, serum, eye care, lip care, moisturizer, and SPF.
Tinting is a semi permanent procedure using plant based dye to achieve perfectly tinted lashes or brows to compliment your features!
Essentially a perm for your natural lashes, this relatively low-maintenance process lifts and curls lashes long-term.
A fully customized experience that is different for each client that walks in the door. Instead of just pulling out your stray hairs, the esthetician will spend time talking with you first and making recommendations on what type of brow looks best with your facial shape, eye shape, and coloring. After your brows are mapped out, wax will be applied to the excess hairs to remove them.
Your esthetician will only wax the hairs at the very edge of your nostril, which gets rid of unwanted stray hairs while preserving the ones inside the nose.

A simple in-office blood draw is done to produce a platelet rich concentrate which is infused into the skin using a microneedling device. PRP acts like stem cells and is capable of regenerating healthy skin and restoring damaged hair follicles at unequivocal levels.
Studies show PRP in combination with micro-needling can be an effective treatment for hair loss...
A simple in-office blood draw is done using special anticoagulant tubes, and then a therapeutic PRP centrifuge concentrates blood platelets within the plasma five-fold. This concentrated "Platelet Rich Plasma" (PRP) is buffered then activated with a calcium solution and infused using a 2-step process of dermal injections and micro-needling. A topical anesthetic is used making the procedure very comfortable. The activated PRP induces the release of 7 different growth factors and causes an inherent rise in human stem cells, jump starting the body's natural inflammatory process. Cell growth and division take place, new blood vessels are created. Regeneration and repair take place over the next 6 months, new collagen develops and matures then begins to shrink, tighten and strengthen the skin. Improvement in skin texture and tone is noticeable in 3 weeks. Full collagen regeneration requires 6 months. It is used in all areas of the face, neck, chest, and scalp including the thin, sensitive crepe-like skin around the eyes and the fine lines around the lips. This treatment is also highly beneficial in treating alopecia (hair loss), acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, and burns. To maximize results, a minimum of 3 treatments are recommended and are performed 6 weeks apart. Results vary but last up to 18 months in most patients. Bi-annual touch-up treatments will help to maintain results.
Platelets work by causing an inflammatory reaction, therefore anti-inflammatory drugs should be avoided if possible for 2 weeks after the treatment. Additionally, smoking and alcohol consumption decrease stem cell release, and should be avoided for 2 weeks after treatment to maximize results. Mild swelling, redness, and tenderness are normal for a couple of days post treatment. Occasionally bruising or skin discoloration occurs which will resolve in about 1 week. Home care with professional cosmeceuticals is advised and Dr. McNeil will create a customized skin care regimen for each client. A gentle enzyme cleanser, hydrating Vitamin C serum and protection with sunscreen are all vital to the healing process. Retinols, exfoliates and harsh lighteners should be avoided for a few days after treatment. Hair restoration clients will be prescribed a Zinc shampoo, topical minoxidil, oral medication and/or supplementation customized for each individual patient.
