Laser Skin Resurfacing Reimagined

Laser skin resurfacing is not a new treatment. It has been conducted for many years. The process has achieved outstanding results but has historically been viewed as an aggressive and potentially risky treatment. When we look at the original process of CO2 laser resurfacing, this may be relatively accurate. The early process of ablating the […]

Why Microneedling with PRP May be Your New Favorite Facial

There are facials, and then there are facial rejuvenation treatments. While a facial can clean pores and exfoliate dead and damaged cells, leaving the skin cleaner and brighter, microneedling stimulates a boost in collagen production that works to rebuild a strong foundation for youthfulness. Microneedling is not dermal rolling, the technique of making tiny puncture […]


Why Treatments Need to be Repeated

Aging skin doesn’t happen overnight. We know this, and yet many people aren’t quite sure what to do about the signs of aging. One of the biggest mistakes we make is waiting to address lines and wrinkles. We typically don’t seek treatments until we have become frustrated with our appearance. By this time, we are […]

FotoFacial RF May the Treatment You Didn’t Know You Needed

The signs of aging are sneaky. They begin to appear ever-so-slightly until, one day, we see a mottled complexion or distinct sun spots and leathery skin where the tissue was once smooth and firm. The fact that there are so many anti-aging remedies available today may only make matters more complex. Here, we want to […]

In our St. Louis office, we have been conducted fractional laser resurfacing for years. With celebrities raving about the latest and greatest lasers, we can’t think of a better time to reintroduce […]


Aging Gracefully Means Adapting to Constant Changes

Mark Twain described wrinkles as the evidence of smiles. This is a lovely description of the lines that come with age, but it doesn’t quite cut it for the person who wants to ease into their age over a longer period. Sure, dramatic facial rejuvenation can be achieved with plastic surgery, but what about the […]


Are Lasers the New Facelift?

Years ago, if one wanted to refresh their appearance, they may undergo a facelift. In the early 2000s, anti-aging took a turn away from surgery. Over the course of the past 15-plus years, more facial rejuvenating treatments involved injectables like Botox and dermal fillers. Today, we’ve got even more to appreciate in the anti-aging game. […]


Where To – and Not To – Get Sculptra

As we age, our face may change in several different ways. We often expect the lines and wrinkles around the eyes, the creases around the nose and mouth, and some sagging along the jawline. What may come as a surprise to some people is the way that certain parts of the face seem to waste […]


Taking Another Look at Botox

In fashion, what is old almost always becomes new again. Could we say the same thing about a cosmetic treatment like Botox? It’s possible, but not in the same way it occurs with fashion trends. Botox has been around for several years and, in that time, we’ve come to know so much about it that […]
