Botox® Xeomin® Dysport® & Jeuveau® are used by Dr. Rachael to reduce facial wrinkles & reverse the signs of aging.
A neuromodulator is a chemical substance that affects nerve impulses. Botox® is the most well-known neuromodulator, it contains small doses of the neurotoxin protein Botulinum toxin type A, which blocks muscle nerve activity temporarily. Originally used as a way to combat muscle spasms, Botulinum toxin type A is now widely used in medicine and cosmetics. The primary use of neuromodulators are to combat lines and wrinkles around the forehead and eyes. It works by temporarily blocking signals between muscles and nerves. As a result, the muscles no longer contract and wrinkles, in turn, soften. Neuromodulators are highly effective at treating forehead lines, glabellar lines between the brows, crow’s feet, and neck bands, which are all dynamic lines and wrinkles. These form as a result of repeated muscle contractions. Neuromodulators will not be as effective on static lines and wrinkles, which are caused by sun damage and gravity.
A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. Botox ® works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother.
Botox® targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. Dr. Rachael will inject these muscles to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of the frown lines between your brows, your crow’s feet lines and your forehead lines.

- A quick 15-minute treatment with minimal downtime
- You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines

The results are temporary, lasting 6 to 12 months or longer before the body gradually and naturally absorbs the particles. Most HA fillers are infused with lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during and after treatment. Starting at $600, package options available.
Sculptra® is a type of collagen induction therapy that activates your skin’s natural power to revitalize collagen production for a more youthful appearance. Sculptra®® is a unique treatment due to its ability to stimulate collagen that has been lost to aging to rebuild and reinforce your skin’s structural foundation. Through a series of treatments, typically about three sessions over a few months, it restores the support and volume of youthful looking skin, providing results that can last up to two years.

The procedures is performed using threads made of PDO (polydioxanone), which eventually dissolve, leaving collagen behind. The threads mechanically results in instant skin lifting, also contracts the fat tissue resulting in skin tightening & promotes collagen production and neovascularization to renew your skin at the cellular level. These three processes work synergistically to give you enhanced skin texture, fewer fine lines, wrinkles and more elastic skin. Immediate results lasting 12-18 months. Minimal downtime.

PRP reactivates the tissue repair cycle, the platelets & growth factors injected increase wound & tissue healing leading to regeneration & repair of tissues using the body’s own innate healing processes. The goal is to activate the hair growth cycle to improve thickness of hair & reduce thinning on the scalp. A numbing agent is used for comfort during injections. Typically, a session takes 1-1.5 hours; 3-6 sessions over 3-6 months are necessary. There is little to no downtime & clients typically return to their normal activities. $400 à la carte.
