Our Most Popular Services

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a non-invasive treatment used to restore youth and volume to the face. As we age, skin loses hyaluronic acid (a sugar molecule), which decreases skin volume and increases the chances for wrinkles and folds to appear. Fillers are an excellent treatment to restore volume and plumpness to lips, chin, cheeks, the jawline, acne scars, and the area under the eyes.

BOTOX®

BOTOX® is an injection that temporarily relaxes facial muscles to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as prevent new lines from forming. Botox delivers dramatic results in eliminating wrinkles in the forehead, nose, and eyes, and can also be used reduce or remove gummy smiles by lowering the upper lip, treat the mouth area from pulling down and reduce or remove neck wrinkles, or neck bands.

Nutrition for Healthy Skin

What you put inside your body is just as important as what you put on your body.

Having a healthy lifestyle will dramatically affect your skin’s appearance hence the saying “you are what you eat.” Not only does diet play a role in skin health but so does the amount of stress in your daily life, your environment and sleeping habits.

As we age changes in hormones will also affect skin health. The change in hormones affects the amount of collagen our bodies produce and thus the appearance of skin will look less toned and plump.

At Skin Focus Dr. Dawn will address all areas relating to skin health so you get the best treatment and results at looking healthier and showing off your natural glowing skin.

Medical Skin Needling

Medical Skin Needling also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) or micro-needling is a procedure which causes micro-injuries to the skin using a handheld device delivering precision sterile needles below the skin surface.

The stimulation to the skin promotes the induction of collagen and elastin without the stress, pain and downtime from other ablative procedures. The resulting micro-channels in the skin then allow us to infuse therapeutic serums such as PRP and vitamin boosts for greater penetration and overall efficacy.

Hair Loss

At Skin Focus we offer Platelet Rich Plasma (A-PRP) treatments to help regenerate and stimulate blood supply to the hair follicles. This results in new hair growth, thicker and fuller head of hair and better hair quality.

Laser Treatments

Theralase therapeutic laser treatments provide patients with a safe, effective and painless therapy that uses the body’s own natural healing systems to relieve pain, increase joint mobility, increase tissue integrity and promote cell regeneration. Theralase lasers offer treatment for acute and chronic pain conditions, addictions, and cosmetic revitalization. These lasers help you regain the active and healthy lifestyle you yearn for by utilizing the power of light energy.

Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy is a powerful and effective form of regenerative medicine that treats musculoskeletal problems by using a series of injections. The soft tissue structures (especially the ligaments and fascia) that hold the skeleton together can become damaged from accident or injury, or by various repeated strains, or just through aging.

Anti-aging for Men

Proper skin care and anti-aging specific to men can help a man feel and look more confident and relaxed. Regardless of our gender, we all want to appear less strained and stressed. Aging skin and bodies can etch a permanent look of worry or even anger – which is definitely not your best face for the world to see.

In fact, studies show that men who take care of their bodies, health and skin changes have a higher rate of success in both personal and career lives.

That’s why here at Skin Focus we think it’s important to listen and provide treatment options for men and have them look their best!
