Facials

Our customized facials showcase the most advanced anti-aging products and technology to exfoliate, nourish and hydrate your skin for increased firmness and elasticity and to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Your skin will instantly look more radiant and rejuvenated.

Oxygeneo+ Facial

Oxygeneo+ Inspired by the renowned healing powers of natural hot springs, known for their high concentration of C02, the Oxygeneo+ oxygenates the skin by first exfoliating the epidermis, preparing the skin to receive active nutrients. Then, it deeply cleans the skin while creating a chemical reaction between the patented Capsugen, and the NeoRevive or NeoBright Gel. This chemical reaction produces C02-rich bubbles that gently burst on the skin’s surface, while essential nutrients and antioxidants are infused deeply into the skin. Oxygeneo treatments continue to produce results even after the client leaves the spa or medical practice. Clients get the benefits of microdermabrasion plus the infusion of nutrients to visibly reveal brighter, revitalized skin. The Oxygeneo + offers multiple solutions on a variety of areas. For example, the Oxygeneo+ exfoliates, infuses, and oxygenates to reveal younger-looking skin after just one treatment. Clients love to see quick results! And the gene0+ can be used on the face, décolleté, and body parts such as the arms, back, heels of the feet, and buttocks. Additionally, not only does the client see results after one visit, the spa can see clinical studies that substantiate the efficacy of the device’s oxygenation function.

We offer Revitalash, Latisse, injections in brows for autoimmune causes of eyebrow thinning and professional grade lash extensions.

Botox, Xeomin & Dysport

Botox® / Xeomin / Dysport is a simple and safe procedure that can be performed during a routine visit, with no downtime and little to no discomfort. Botox®/Xeomin/Dysport works by temporarily reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause persistent frown lines, forehead wrinkles, or smile lines around the eyes. If treatments are not continued, the muscles will gradually return to normal function and wrinkles will return. Botox can also be used to treat excessive sweating and jaw pain. Our goal with Botox®/Xeomin/Dysport is to give our patients a "softer and relaxed look", not eliminate movement.

Injectable Fillers

What are Injectable Fillers?

Injectable fillers are gels made primarily of hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the skin. There are numerous brands of injectable fillers each with different properties and indications of use. Injectable fillers are administered to replace volume and fill areas of mild to moderate volume loss of the face that occur due to the natural process of aging and weight loss. Injectable fillers are FDA-approved to fill the lines of the face, around the mouth and nose, often referred to as "marionette lines" or "parentheses” as well as under eyes and lips. Other areas of the face can be treated off-label.

How are fillers administered?

Fillers are injected into the dermis of the skin using a precise, small bore needle. Upon initial consultation, Dr. Mays will work with you to help determine which areas of the face would respond best to treatment and which type of filler and how many syringes would be needed. A topical numbing cream is applied to the skin for several minutes before the procedure, and the injectable filler itself contains another numbing agent to make sure your treatment is comfortable.

How long does it take to see results? How long do results last?

Most people notice desired changes to the treated areas immediately. There may be some swelling which can last up to 72 hours but usually dissipates within 24 hours. Duration of results can vary from individual to individual and area to area, but improvements commonly last 6-12 months and decrease gradually over time.

PRP Facial and Hair Rejuvenation

What are PRP Treatments?

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP is the latest cutting edge technology in hair restoration and regrowth with numerous clinical studies supporting its safety and efficacy. Along with other medical hair loss therapies, PRP is one of the only treatments that uses the body’s natural repair mechanism to significantly improve hair regrowth and slow progression of hair thinning. PRP consists of growth factors, cytokines and bio-restorative molecules extracted from blood to stimulate hair follicle re-growth and thickening of existing hair with little down time.

The physician draws a small amount of blood and isolates the red cells from a platelet concentrate, embedded in its own plasma. The entire process takes less than 10 minutes.Since the PRP is processed from the patient’s own blood, there is no risk of allergy or rejection with this treatment. The extracted PRP is high in mesenchymal stem cells, and autologous blood products that contain essential and specific growth factors that assist in regeneration of the hair follicle and inhibition of further shedding.

It has also been shown in small studies to help thicken already existing hair. While there are no guarantees and every patient responds to treatment differently, PRP is an exciting, quick, non-surgical treatment with minimal down time and low risks or complications.

The PRP system we utilize is a dual-spin technology with a patented gel that allows better separation of red blood cells to produce a pure highly concentrated PRP free of cell contamination. Our PRP system produces an industry leading platelet-recovery yield, maintaining healthy platelets and thus resulting in maximum possible hair growth. Additionally, the tube uses an anticoagulant of more neutral pH, resulting in a more pain-free experience. Best of all, the process takes just minutes!

PRP Skin Rejuvenation

Similar to PRP hair restoration, this cutting-edge preventative and corrective therapy harnesses the body’s natural healing process for complete rejuvenation of the skin leading to improved texture, firmness and elasticity. Once extracted, the PRP is then either injected or micro-needled onto the skin surface. The growth factor and cytokine-rich PRP aids in regeneration of the skin cells resulting in renewed glowing skin. Dr. Mays will fully evaluate your skin tone and texture to determine the best technique for your PRP skin rejuvenations. Recommended every 3-4 weeks.

PRP Hair Restoration

The PRP system we utilize has shown to improve hair shaft length, increase hair density, and increase follicular units. The system's patented gel technology efficiently separates red blood cells from PRP and produces an industry leading platelet-recovery yield of 85 percent per unit volume, increasing its purity and minimizing injection discomfort. Best of all, our system was designed to be easy on our patients. The preparation process takes just a few minutes with as little as 10cc of blood draw. The result is a more efficacious and comfortable PRP experience.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure that is used to effectively treat and eliminate varicose veins and spider veins. Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a solution (generally a salt solution) directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to collapse and stick together and the blood to clot. The treatment is minimally invasive. The procedure also can improve related symptoms such as aching, swelling, burning and night cramps.The path to eliminating a spider vein or varicose vein problem begins at a consultation with a physician who specializes in vascular issues. After taking a medical history and conducting a physical exam, the doctor will determine whether a patient is a likely candidate for the procedure.

Vascular Laser

How does the KTP laser work?

Facial redness, broken capillaries and angiomas (red dots), rosacea and port wine stains can all be successfully treated with the KTP laser. The bright green laser light is absorbed selectively into shallow blood vessels which are gently headed to stimulate a repair process. Some blood vessels disappear on contact with the laser and those that do not immediately make take up to 4 weeks to fully resolve or require additional treatment. This process is quick, easy and an affordable option by comparison to other technologies currently available. Once vessels have become visible at the surface level, they will only be successfully treated with laser applications.

What is the KTP Laser Treatment?

The Gemini KTP Laser is the most powerful green-light laser available and has been designed to target excess blood vessel proliferation in the skin. The Gemini laser is a true laser, meaning it has a single wavelength instead of the more common BBL/IPL (broad band light/intense pulsed light) which is filtered light that can absorb into coloration of the skin, limiting the amount of energy that can be used to treat vessels, resulting in more treatments. IPL is effective for some patients with light skin and dark spots but tends to take 3-5 treatments for the sort of lasting results that can be achieved with a single KTP treatment. This can be performed with minimal downtime (2-3 days of mild swelling) and is relatively painless.

What can I expect during the treatment?

A treatment can be 15, 30, or 45 minutes long. Although patients do improve when additional treatments are added, usually patients only require 1-3 treatment on their face. Sometimes a touch-up procedure is required, depending on their desired result, and appointment may be scheduled after 4 weeks or more. Protective eye shields will be placed over your eyes. Cold, clear gel is applied to your face as a coupling agent for the laser. During the treatment, you will be able to feel each pulse of the laser energy shine into your skin, as it gently warms blood vessels. Most patients report their pain as being extremely mild but certain areas may be more sensitive, like the upper lip and nose. Afterwards there may be a slight sunburn sensation and redness that can easily be covered with makeup.

When can I expect results?

Immediate improvement in vessels is noticed, although improvements in blood vessels continue over the next 4-6 weeks. For patients with numerous vessels or background redness without vessels, more treatments will continue to help. Red angioma spots may immediately turn gray-brown and appear shallower within the skin. Make-up can cover these areas up, but the gray-brown spots will flake off subtly over the next week with normal care. Your provider will review the full after care instructions to explain the expected outcome and expectations of the days ahead.

Photofacial

A photofacial is a treatment touted to reverse sun damage, even out facial color as well as improve tone and texture in the process. In other words, photofacial treatments reportedly: tighten pores. reduce the severity of acne.

What to Expect After an Photofacial?

Immediately following your treatment, the treated areas will be pinkish red with slight swelling. The reddish coloring will typically dissipate within 24 hours. After the treatment, you may notice that sunspots and discoloration appear darker and slightly more prominent. This is normal and a good sign that the treatment is working.

Over the next few days, brown spots and other blemishes will begin to surface on the skin. The spots may raise and look like dark coffee grounds on the skin. These spots will naturally flake off over the following days.

What to Do After a Photofacial Treatment?

  • Be sure to maintain moisture on the skin at all times. Apply a gentle moisturizer immediately following the treatment.
  • Use a gentle cleanser with warm water, twice a day.
  • Be consistent with sunscreen application. This may be the most important aspect of aftercare treatment. Use a sunscreen with at least a 30 SPF that protects against UVA and UVB rays.
  • Two to three weeks after treatment, we highly recommend a Facial with Microdermabrasion for the treated areas. The Facial will hydrate and protect the treated areas, while the Microdermabrasion will further remove the dead skin cells revealing your healthy glowing skin.

What Not to Do After a Photofacial Treatment?

  • Avoid unprotected sun exposure for at least 30 days after your Photofacial session. The skin is especially sensitive as it heals and re-damaging the skin is possible during this time.
  • If possible, do not apply makeup immediately after the treatment. It is best to give the skin 12 hours of rest before putting products on the skin.
  • Do not take a hot bath, hot shower, or bask in the hot tub for at least 48 hours. Warm showers are fine, but you do not want the skin to overheat while it recovers from the heat and light waves from the treatment.
  • Avoid strenuous activity or exercise for 48 hours after the Photofacial session. Overheating the skin can reduce the positive effects of the treatment.
  • Do not scratch or pick the skin during recovery. As blemishes surface, leave them be! They will flake off naturally. You do not want to create a scar where a brown spot once lived.
  • Avoid any product or supplement high in Vitamin A, such as retinoic acid, glycolic acid, tretinoin (Retin-A), Accutane and alpha-hydroxy acids.
