Customized Skin Consultations

Our Philosphy: "We want you to look as good as you can for your age without looking "over done" or like you have had obvious cosmetic treatment. We want you to look and feel naturally refreshed, glowing and youthful."

A thorough, private consultation is essential to achieve optimal results. During this appointment we carefully listen to your concerns and design a plan that addresses those issues. Many times we collaborate with other specialists for a comprehensive, global approach to managing the aging process.

Consultations are approximately 45 minutes and include a packet of informational material relevant to your plan as well as pricing. Information about Green Sky financing is provided if needed.

The CoolSculpting procedure is the world's #1 non-invasive fat-reduction procedure. It's an innovative way to contour your body by freezing unwanted fat away with no surgery and little to no downtime. With more than 7 million CoolSculpting treatments worldwide, people everywhere are getting a better view of themselves, thanks to the one-of-a-kind CoolSculpting procedure!

CoolSculpting helps both women and men get rid of stubborn fat. The non-invasive treatment works on love handles, double chins, saddlebags and many other areas of unwanted fat.

Our Coolsculpting technicians are expertly trained and design customized plans to permanently sculpt away fat. We have two CoolSculpting systems enabling us to treat multiple body areas at the same time to achieve your results more quickly.


ResurFx uses the latest cutting edge technology in non-ablative, fractional laser resurfacing to rejuvenate the skin, improving texture, skin discoloration, acne scars, pore size, wrinkles and more. This amazing technology enables us to offer you remarkable results for younger, healthier, glowing skin with less down time.

Due to the non-ablative nature of this laser, most patients find treatments comfortable with only a topical anesthetic. A cooling device blows cool, refreshing air on the treated areas for additional comfort. After the treatment patients generally have 24-48 hours of recovery time with mild redness and swelling. Most patients resume normal activity immediately after the treatment and makeup may be applied.

ResurFx works with your skin to stimulate collagen regeneration over a series of treatments. Typically, only 2-3 sessions are needed to have significant visible improvement in skin texture which gets even better for up to six months! As collagen increases, your skin looks tighter, smoother and more youthful.
