LIP injections

Lip Injections Facts


Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body. It helps increase volume in your lips. These types of dermal fillers are sometimes called ...

..."hyaluronic acid fillers." Collagen, once the most common dermal filler, is used less often today.

Your lips will be a little swollen at first, but you'll see the effects of the fillers pretty quickly. Give your lips 24 hours to settle and the swelling to calm. Then you'll be seeing your filled-out lips as they will be for the next few months.

If done correctly, lips with injections don't feel any different than real lips. Not even when you're kissing.

There's practically zero downtime. The procedure takes about 15 to 20 minutes total, and the numbing will start to wear off after about 15 minutes. You can go about your daily life afterward but shouldn't make any big plans (like a wedding or an important event) for at least three days in case you bruise.


PRP - Platelets Rich Plasma


Platelets have long been known for their role in early hemostasis, while their tissue regenerative properties have been discovered only over the

last decade. Platelets have long been known for their role in early hemostasis, while their tissue regenerative properties have been discovered only over the last decade. Recent studies have shown that platelets intracellular granules contain hundreds of active cytokines and growth factors, all critical during tissue healing and regeneration. By isolating and concentrating platelets through centrifugation it is possible to concentrate the growth factors and deliver them in a specific area where biostimulation is needed. The highly concentrated growth factors stimulate endothelial cells and fibroblasts to proliferate and differentiate leading to angiogenesis, new collagen deposition and contraction. In addition, platelets stimulate the recruitment and differentiation of mesechymal stem cells.




Coolsculpting is a whole new way to approach fat reduction. The process is all-natural – the cold temperature and your body do all of the work to remove ...

...the excess bulges.

Developed by Harvard scientists, FDA-cleared, and patented procedure uses a targeted cooling process that crystallizes the fat cells underneath the skin. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body.  CoolSculpting uses a vacuum applicator to draw the tissue into a receptacle and extracts heat from the fat cells to cool them, which causes them to die.  Once the fat cells crystalize, they break down without causing damage to the collagen, elastin or skin.
