Liposuction is the single most requested cosmetic surgical procedure in the United States today. Liposuction is effective for those fatty areas that have been resistant to diet and exercise. Patients who have good skin elasticity and muscle tone achieve the best cosmetic results. When used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise program, liposuction results can be long lasting.
Smartlipo, a major advancement in liposuction, has revolutionized the procedure. Smartlipo utilizes a 1064 nm laser used to liquefy fat cells and allow the physician to sculpt the areas being treated. The use of Smartlipo allows dermatologic surgeons to effectively remove deep and superficial layers of fat under local anesthesia with little discomfort, virtually no complications and almost immediate cosmetic results.
Smartlipo, in conjunction with tumescent liposuction is becoming more popular than traditional liposuction because it produces smoother results while greatly decreasing risk, expense, and postoperative discomfort. In addition, the results of Smartlipo are immediately obvious - with the client often being able to comment on the procedure's success during the surgery. Many clients return to work or some activity within 2 to 4 days.
The most common body areas where Smartlipo is used are:
Cheeks, jowls, and neck
- Abdomen and waist
- Upper arms
- Breast or chest areas
- Hips and buttocks
- Inner and outer thighs
- Inner knee
- Calves and ankles

patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when
sensitive areas are treated.

redness and mild swelling in the treated area. Both should
dissipate within a few hours.

Skin rejuvenation is a laser treatment that diminishes the damage done by sun exposure and aging. Treatments require little or no downtime as the epidermis is left fully intact. This non-invasive method of treating a range of concerns includes acne, wrinkles and laxity, rosacea, skin pigment disorders, and capillary diseases. Patients desiring a refreshed look without painful surgery or downtime will benefit from this procedure.
Fraxel is a laser treatment that works by directing a beam of light to an irregularity of the skin and sparring to its surrounding areas. This removes irregularities without scarring or damaging the skin. The results are improved texture, decrease in pore size and oil reduction in the sebaceous glands, and at the same time, tightening the skin. This treatment requires little or no down time.
Chemical peels have well-established outcomes, including reduced fine lines, reduction in acne lesions, normalization of uneven pigmentation, refreshed texture and tone, and decreased appearance of scars. There are various peels available suitable for all skin types and with varying levels of intensity. Our staff will help you select the type of peel that will best fit your skin and desired results.

- Juvederm® is an injectable gel that replaces the hyaluronic acid that you skin looses as it ages, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm® is injected under your skin to instantly smooth out the moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, (like the nasolabial folds) for at least 1 year. Juvederm® has been tested on all skin types, both male and female.
- Restylane® and Perlane® are cosmetic dermal fillers that add volume within the skin. They consist of hyaluronic acid. In the human body, natural hyaluronic acid provides volume and fullness to skin. The hydrophilic, or “water loving” nature of the hyaluronic acid molecules allows them to bind many times their own weight in water as they slowly breakdown. This process helps maintain volume for about six months.
- Sculptra™ is a synthetic injectable material known as poly-L-lactic acid that is intended to restore and correct the signs of facial fat loss. Sculptra™ is injected below the surface of the skin and provides an increase in the skin thickness of the areas where volume (fat) has been lost, helping to restore fullness to the face for a more natural appearance. The number of treatment sessions and the amount needed at each session will differ for each person. In clinical studies, treatment results lasted for up to 2 years after the first session. Touch-up treatments may be needed to maintain the desired effect.
Latisse™ is the first and only FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate or not enough eyelashes, growing them longer, fuller, and darker. You only apply it once a day, maybe as part of your nightly routine, and watch your lashes gradually become longer, thicker and darker.
Botox is a purified protein administered in a simple, nonsurgical procedure that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people ages 18 to 65. During treatment, very low doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines between the brows. Dr. Walton determines exactly where to administer the injections to achieve the best results. No anesthesia is required, although the treated area can be numbed with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes, and there is no downtime afterward. Discomfort is minimal and brief.
You can expect to see results within days after your treatment. The appearance of the area between your brows may continue to improve for up to a week. By day 30 in a clinical study, 89% of patients judged the severity of their frown lines between their brows as moderate or better.
