A thorough consultation will address cosmetic concerns and a comprehensive plan addressing an at home skincare regimen as well as recommended in office procedures. Price of consultation will be applied to your personalized plan if procedures are completed.
Neuromodulators such as Botox/ Dysport are used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The dose in the form of units is customized based on your anatomy and aesthetic preferences.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are used to restore volume loss in areas such as lines around the mouth (nasolabial folds), lips and cheeks. Dr. Tempera will asses your areas of concern and skillfully enhance your natural features.
Morpheus8 is the best skin tightening device on the market. This procedure uses a combination of radiofrequency (heat) and microneedling to lift, tighten and contour the face. The Morpheus8 body treatment reduces the appearance of cellulite, tightens the skin, reduces fat and improves tone and texture.
Microscopic injuries are created in the skin which in turn signal the body’s repair cascade. This induces collagen and elastin production which helps to improve wrinkles, enlarged pores, scarring, texture, stretch marks, elasticity and overall complexion. A series of three treatments spaced one month apart is recommended for optimal results.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is collected and extracted from your blood and injected back into the skin through microneedling. PRP is rich is your own growth factors which amplifies results and accelerates the healing process.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is collected and extracted from your blood and injected into the scalp. This stimulates new hair growth as well as improves thickness of hair shafts. A series of treatments is recommended for optimal results.
VI Peels are painless medium depth chemical peels that are safe for all skin types and tones. Dr Tempera offers four peels each uniquely formulated to target specific concerns including hyperpigmentation/ melasma, active acne/ acne scarring, wrinkles/ fine lines/ elasticity, uneven skin tone and texture. A series of three treatments spaced one month apart is recommended for optimal results.
ToxBooster is the combination of a VI Peel chemical peel and neuromodulator injectables completed during the same treatment day. When done together, these two treatments work synergistically to enhance and extend results.
