Injectables & Micro Needling

Revanesse Versa is a dermal filler that can be highly effective at treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including laugh lines and volume loss. The treatment is minimally-invasive and provides immediate results. This filler can last up to 12 months. Kelli Van Housen has injected over 2,000 syringes and calls it her utility filler. It also has a great track record of success with over 3 million syringes of Versa sold worldwide since 2012.

The particles in Revanesse Versa are spherical and uniform. This allows the filler to be more easily accepted by the body, which reduces swelling and provides added longevity to the results.


Revance’s RHA (Resilient Hyaluronic Acid) dermal fillers are the only fillers that are FDA-approved to treat dynamic facial wrinkles and folds (those that move with your natural facial expressions). RHA fillers are designed to move with the face by stretching and rebounding with dynamic facial movement creating the most natural smooth look.

RHA fillers require less processing than traditional fillers which makes it more like the natural hyaluronic acid (HA) that is produced in our bodies. For this reason, people tend to be less reactive to RHA, because the body perceives it as less foreign.
While traditional HA fillers last between 6-12 months, RHA fillers work for up to 15 months so you can go much longer between treatments.


All it takes is ten minutes getting some tiny injections of Botox Cosmetic in the right places. Within days your facial lines and wrinkles essentially disappear. The areas most frequently treated include the space above the nose and between the eyebrows, the outer corners of the eyes (crows feet) and the forehead.

The results typically last for about three to four months, sometimes longer.

More than a million people have been treated with Botox Cosmetic since it’s FDA approval in 2002 and its been around for 30 years, so you can feel comfortable that it is trusted.

Dysport is the first direct competitor to Botox. They both have the same primary active ingredient, but a different protein typically allows Dysport to diffuse further and spread more than Botox. Additionally, the effects of Dysport tend to appear in about two days compared to a week with Botox. Like Botox, Dysport lasts about four months.


If you want to lose that double chin, Kybella could be the answer. Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells which results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. That means further treatments should not be necessary once you’ve reached your aesthetic goal.


NovaThreads are patented , USA made PDO (Poly-Dioxanone) synthetic absorbable threads, proven to be one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body. NOVA THREADS are safe for adults with a healthy lifestyle. The procedure works like an instant face lift without the knife. This revolutionary FDA approved procedure uses absorbable sutures to lift, tighten, and smooth your skin. They have been used in Europe and Asia for over 20 years. Due to their overwhelming popularity, they were recently introduced to the US market in 2015.

NovaThreads are injected just below the surface of the skin. The procedure only takes about 30 -40 minutes and your face will look instantly better. The PDO (Polydioxanone) NovaThreads sutures work by stimulating your body by creating inflammation which build’s collagen in the area where the suture is placed. Threads will stimulate collage for months after insertion. Multiple sessions may be needed for optimal results. Over about 6-9 months, the sutures are broken down by the body. Results can last up to 1-2 years.

NovaThreads can treat the following areas:
Eye brow lift, Wrinkles, Saggy cheeks, Smile lines, Saggy Jaw or Jowls, Lip border


StrataPen Microneedling

StrataPen is a minimally invasive microneedling device used for skin rejuvenation. It is helpful for improving a variety of skin concerns such as wrinkles, scars, texture, laxity & more!

StrataPen microneedling is safe for all skin colors and types. However, if you’re considering microneedling treatments, we recommend a cosmetic consultation first. We’ll discuss the different treatment options & determine if StrataPen would be the right procedure for you!

Good candidates for microneedling:

  • Male or female, age 18+ and in good health
  • Are not pregnant, planning to become pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Haven’t had dermal fillers within 2 weeks
  • Haven’t had Botox, Dysport or Xeomin injections within 2 days

We’ll start your treatment plan by taking photos of your skin. Next, your face will be cleansed and a topical numbing cream will be applied. Once your numbing period is done, the treatment will begin and should only take about 15 to 30 minutes. Upon completion of the session, aftercare will be reviewed and you’ll be given instructions for how to care for your skin.

When will I see results?

StrataPen, like all micro needling devices, requires a series of treatments in order to get the best results. After each session, the micro-injuries we made to your skin will trigger a natural healing response. This can be described as a sort “remodeling” process. Your body’s own production of new collagen & elastin will create the most change.

Nano Needling

Nano Needling is effective, pain-free and improves the overall skin tone and texture by stimulating the production of collagen. Nano Needling is good for almost all skin tones and types! We use this technique for safely infusing active ingredients through thousands of microscopic channels. This treatment needs no numbing cream and will painlessly smooth the skins texture and leave your skin glowing.


They both involve the use of a micro-needling device and basically trick your skin into producing new collagen and elastin. The main difference is the depth that the needles penetrate the skin. Micro-needling penetrates the deep dermis whereas nano-needling only reaches the upper layer of the epidermis.  Nano-needling is a great choice if you’re concerned about fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, swelling or dark areas. Additionally, there is NO downtime with Nano Pen.
