(Botox/Dysport) // the treatment of pain and/or dynamic wrinkles due to hyperactive muscle activity // $12 per unit or $11 per unit when administered w/ regularly scheduled dental recare appointments (dental cleaning & exam) or $10 per unit for #freshfacefam
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Dermal fillers are used to immediately restore volume loss, enhance features, or augment treated areas to balance the facial aesthetic // $$ Price is dependent on number of sessions, product types/amounts chosen for desired results. Upon consultation, you’ll be given a comprehensive beauty plan in which the full facial aesthetic will be addressed and planned with you. The plan will then be presented at that time so you understand treatment sequencing & cost. With this, pre-paid money-saving packages can be formed on a case-by-case basis to best save time & money w/ treatment. Aesthetic consultations are $50 which are then applied toward treatment should you go forward w/ treatment the day of consultation. The $50 is due at the time of scheduling. See the appointment etiquette menu tab for more information.
Sculptra gradually promotes collagen induction to restore lost volume, building a better foundation for beauty maintenance. Best when administered in sessions (typically 3-4 sessions spaced about 6 weeks apart). Best results can be expected 3-4 months following the final session. // $800 per vial w/ prepaid money-saving packages available on a case-by-case basis once the number of vials & sessions are determined for your individual case.
Kybella permanently dissolves unwanted fat cells to smooth & contour. Most commonly used in the FDA approved submental region to target the “double-chin,” but can be used in any area where fat can be easily isolated like the underarm bulge (roll between the bra and arm), the bra bulge (bulging area above a/o below the bra on the back), the banana roll (area between the butt and leg), knee fat (the bulge above the knee) and jowls. // $600 per vial w/ the average (more ideal) double-chin patient requiring 3-4 vials in 1-2 sessions. Best results are 3-6 months following the final session since the skin continues to rebound (tighten) for unto 6 months post treatment.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Most commonly used in the undereye area to improve fine lines, texture, loose skin, minor loss of volume, wrinkles, and pigmentation (“dark undereyes”). This is an all-natural treatment used by separating the growth factors from your own body’s blood to signal the stimulation of your own collagen and elastin for regeneration of new healthy skin tissue. This yields gradual and natural results with best results seen approximately 3 months following the final session (the amount of time it takes your body to form new collagen). 2-3 sessions, approximately 6 weeks apart are recommended for most to see significant improvement, but then semi-annual to annual maintenance sessions can keep results looking fresh. Individual results will vary depending on your body’s response to the PRP induced collagen regeneration. PRP injection treatments below the skin in the under-eye area will not have the immediate and final results of a dermal filler treatment because the volume added by PRP injection is resorbed by your body within 2-3 days with gradual tissue regeneration beginning within days and continuing for months after the treatment. // $300 per session w/ pre-paid money saving packages available on a case-by-case basis once the number of sessions for your particular case is determined.
temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle, but visible “lift” in the skin. Instead of removing the patient’s loose facial skin surgically, the lifting thread simply suspends it. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the treated area(s), but lifting threads are not a replacement for a facelift. Instead, lifting threads are early intervention for early signs of skin laxity to both reduce looseness (by thickening and hydrating the skin) and to prevent it from getting worse (by strengthening the skin). Better than the “lifting” effect, threads combat aging in another way: by provoking the body’s “healing response” and causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas. Dr. Hughes’ favorite area to treat with lifting threads are the lower face especially the jawline. ***An important factor to note is that lifting threads are not often the first line of treatment as all areas of volume deficiency should be addressed first with fillers prior to thread treatment. // $$ Price is dependent on the treatment area(s) & the difficulty of the case in regards to how many threads will be needed to achieve the desired result but the average jawline thread lift in our office is around $500. A consultation to determine your candidacy & indivudualized teatment needs would be required at which point your comprehensive beauty plan including treatment pricing would be presented.
Like lifting threads in that they induce your body’s natural collagen formation, except smooth threads are much smaller and offer no “lift.” Used in areas where we’d want to “fill” only and to add tensile strength in the way of new collagen. Common uses are for areas of tired, crepey skin, common around the eyes, the upper lip, the hollows of the cheeks, under the chin and around the mouth. Dr. Hughes particularly loves them at the lip borders to sharpen anatomy, philtral columns, nasiolabial folds, stubborn forehead lines like those 11’s you started treating too late with Botox, perioral wrinkling and acne scarring. As with any treatment where collagen induction is the primary goal, certain areas may need a series of 2-3 treatments (like perioral lines, nasiolabial folds, or forehead lines) and area of acne scarring may take closer to 4-6 treatments depending on the severity or the case and the desired goal. Collagen induction is gradual so recall that best results are seen once the body has had time to produce said collagen (3-6 months following the final treatment). // $$ Price is dependent on the treatment area(s) & the difficulty of the case in regards to how many threads will be needed to achieve the desired result but the average smooth thread session is around $300 w/ pre-paid money saving packages available on a case-by-case basis once the number of sessions for your particular case is determined. Enhancement to the lip borders w/o need for treatment of perioral lines typically only requires one session. A consultation to determine your candidacy & indivudualized teatment needs would be required at which point your comprehensive beauty plan including treatment pricing would be presented.

CoolPeel is a CO2 resurfacing laser treatment. By targeting just the superficial layer of skin tissue, damaged skin is removed revealing younger and healthier looking skin.
CO2 lasers are the gold standard in treating wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes as well as tighten skin and balance tone. Damaged skin tissue is removed, or ablated, stimulating new collagen production and heat energy is delivered to tighten the skin. CO2 treatments are often accompanied by considerable downtime and risk while damaged skin heals. ONLY the CoolPeel can deliver a fractional ablative treatment without the downtime.
While numbing isn’t necessary for the CoolPeel, we offer a topical numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable. While there is no downtime following your treament, you should expect to be a little red, as if you have a sunburn, for a day, or two, but nothing should prevent you from returning to your normal daily activities. Patients typically see drastic improvements after just one treatment, best results are seen after 3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart.
Tetra CO2 Laser Resurfacing
For more severe skin conditions, the Tetra provides a deeper level of resurfacing than the traditional CoolPeel. The Tetra requires some downtime with redness and slight swelling for 1-3 days following treatment. Our providers can determine which laser treatment is best for your skin type and concerns.
