Also referred to as botulinum toxin, Botox is a purified protein injectable used to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe dynamic wrinkles, including forehead lines, lines between the eyebrows known as the “11s,” and crow’s feet. As a neuromodulator, Botox also quells conditions such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscle.
Botox works by temporarily relaxing the muscles of the body to reduce wrinkles and frown lines. We precisely target the muscles responsible for creating these wrinkles, allowing the skin to smooth out while still allowing our patients to make their natural expressions. When done correctly by an expert injector, Botox should never make a person look “frozen.”
Botox injectable treatments take about 10 minutes to perform. As with any injectable, it is recommended that a consultation with an experienced professional be scheduled before neuromodulator treatment to determine the appropriate dosage and placement. Learn more about Botox at BotoxCosmetic.com.

Fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of damage add years to your appearance. AQUAGOLD Fine Touch Micro-Channeling is a new way to treat large areas that were previously hard to address. Additionally, it allows for a quick pick-me-up for the neck and décolletage area in a way that micro-needling can't offer.
AQUAGOLD Fine Touch is a micro-channeling device that helps plump and rejuvenate skin. This procedure takes the classic micro-needling process a step further by simultaneously addressing common concerns like dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. Its unique design makes AQUAGOLD Fine Touch the perfect complementary treatment to other in-office procedures like BOTOX, lasers and fillers.
AQUAGOLD Fine Touch works to boost collagen production by rejuvenating skin with a handheld device that delivers anti-aging ingredients deep into skin. The vial is often filled with hyaluronic acid, which is able to hold up to 1,000 times its own weight in water to effectively plump mature skin. The device also works with other topical serums, so you can tailor your treatment to address specific skin concerns.
Unlike other micro-channeling or roller techniques, the entire AQUAGOLD Fine Touch process is completely painless. The device is uniquely designed so it will not create micro-tears in the skin or cause any bleeding. Additionally, there is no downtime following the procedure, so you can immediately continue with your daily activities.
The AQUAGOLD Fine Touch device is also unique in that the individual unit isn’t reused from person to person. A new device is used on each person, making the entire process sterile and safe for every patient. This cleanliness is ultimately why Dr. Joel Schlessinger, board-certified dermatologist and founder of LovelySkin, chose to add AQUAGOLD Fine Touch to his practice.
