Velashape® is a circumferential fat reduction and cellulite treatment. Velashape® contours, shapes, and slims the body by improving the appearance of cellulite and reducing circumference of thighs, buttocks, arms, and abdomen in as few as 4 treatment sessions. Velashape® is cleared by the FDA and provides dramatic results without downtime or any discomforts.


How quickly will I notice a change?
Results are cumulative and gradual. Improvement can be seen following the first treatment. The skin's surface of the treated area will begin to appear smoother and firmer with each treatment. We concourage patients to combine their treatments with a healthy lifestyle utilizing exercise and healthy eating habits to achieve the greatest benefit.


How many inches can I reduce from my circumference?
Clinical studies show an average of 1inch post treatment. In clinical trials, the average range of circumferential reduction was 0.5 to 3 inches. Treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and colors.


Does it hurt?
Most patients find Velashape® comfortable, like a warm deep massage. The treatment is designed to accommodate your sensitivity and comfort level. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours post treatment. Your skin may appear blushed for a few hours.


Are the results permanent?
Following your complete treatment, it is recommended to get maintenance treatments periodically. Like all non-surgical and surgical techniques, results will last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regularly.

chemical peels

A chemical peel is a process where a chemical is applied to the skin and penetrates into the outer layers causing a slight peel. The new skin underneath appears smoother and finer in texture. Fine lines and wrinkles are diminshed as well as some sun-induced brown spots and pre-cancerous lesions. With healing, cosmetically desirable results are achieved.


Chemical peels are classified as superficial, medium, and deep. The strong the acid, the deeper the penetration. Our office performs superficial and medium depth peels. Dr. LoBuono performs the mid depth peels which use trichloroacetic acid (TCA). TCA penetrates deeper than glycolic acid, and TCA peels are usually performed only once, while glycolic acid peels are generally done in a series. The superficial peels are performed by our Registered Nurse.


This office uses Neo-Strata brand glycolic acids. The strength baries from 20% to 70%. With Neo-Strata peels, the patient can expect mild discomfort that quickly diminishes. A series of glycolic peels results in softer skin, the clearing fine lines and wrinkles, more even skin tones, some shrinking of pore size, increased smothness, and an improved natural glow and radiance.


DiamondTome™ Wands

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation technique for removing the topmost layer of skin, leaving skin more supple and vibrant. The DiamondTome™ Skin Resurfacing System removes this layer by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips bonded to the tip of the wand, while vacuuming the exfoliated skin cells away in a controlled manner. Removing this outer layer leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin.


Skin Resurfacing also stimulates the vascular circulation to the surface of the skin resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. DiamondTome™ rejuvenates sun-damaged skin, reduces age spots, minimizes blotchy skin coloring, extracts blackheads, and improves oily skin.


Skin Resurfacing treatment is non-invasive, pain-free, and requires no downtime. To achieve maximum results, several treatments are recommended for healthier, younger looking skin. Most people experience softer, smoother skin after their first treatment. Our treatments include a cleansing, multivitamin masque, and moisturizing protection.

botox cosmetic

Botox® has been used therapeutically for over 16 years in 75 countries to treat a variety of medical conditions. It is the most studied botulism toxin and one of the most widely researched medicines in the world. Botox® Cosmetic, introduced in 2002, is the first Botulinum toxic to be approved by the FDA to temporarily treat moderate to severe glabellar lines between the brows and "crow's feet" by the outer corners of the eyes. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. Patients should see results within days of their treatment, and the appearance of frown lines should continue to improve for up to a week. Visible results can last up to four months, after which further treatment may be required.


Xeomin® is a prescription medication used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines, frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.


What can I expect during treatment?
During treatment, which usually takes 10-20 minutes, your doctor will inject Xeomin® into the muscles in your forehead that cause frown lines between your brows. No anesthesia is required. Some patients observe visible smoothing as early as 3-4 days after the injection. Maximum effect occurs in about 30 days and lasts 3 months or longer.

Restylane® and Perlane®

The Restylane® family of products, Restylane® and Perlane®, are cosmetic dermal fillers approved by the FDA to sooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane® replaces lost volume and restores youthful contours to the skin.


Restylane® was the first cosmetic filler made from hyaluronic acid that has been modified slightly to last longer than the human body's own hyaluronic acid. In the human body, natural hyaluronic acid provides volume and fullness to the skin. Restylane® is the first and only dermal filler approved by the FDA for lip enhancement in people over 21 years old.


The results are virtually instantaneous. Restylane® results last about six months in the majority of patients. Your doctor will decide which product is right for you based on evaluation of facial wrinkles and folds.


Radiesse® Volumizing Filler refreshes your appearance by replenishing the volume your skin has lost due to aging. Radiesse® Volumizing Filler immediately provides the lift needed to diminsh wrinkles and skin folds because of the increidble lifting capacity of the calcium-based filler.


Radiesse® Volumizing Filler also has the capcity to act as scaffolding under the skin, providing lift and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. In many patients, correction lasts for a year or more, so choose Radiesse® Volumizing Filler for long lasting and youthful results.


The results are virtually instantaneous. Restylane® results last about six months in the majority of patients. Your doctor will decide which product is right for you based on evaluation of facial wrinkles and folds.

hair removal


Say good-bye to unwanted hair growth on all body areas including: upper lip, cheeks, chin, neck, stomach, arms, shoulders, bikini area, legs, and back for both men and women. We are proud to offer ELOS, the first an only technology that combines energies to affectively and gently remove hair of many colors and skin tones.


No more wasting money on endless cycles of painful waxing, razors, or electrolysis. We can treat men and women of ALL skin types safely and effectively, year-round. Hair follicles are precisely targeted and destroyed using the ELOS combination of bi-polar radio frequency and light energies. Only ELOS is proven to remove lighter colored hair on all skin tones. More treatments may be needed for lighter color hair than dark hair colors.


Hair growth is reduced after each treatment. The number of treatments required will be based on your hair color and type, body area, and skin tone.


Cooling of the skin as well as a constant measure of the skin's resistance ensures safety and comfort during treatment. There is no downtime with this procedure.

Skin Rejuvenation


Pigmented and vascular treatment, commonly referred to as IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) or Photofacial, safely restores youthful healthy looking skin. IPL comfortably fades the appearance of skin imperfections caused by the sun, uneven skin tones, brown and red spots or rosacea, spider veins, and age spots.


How does Skin Rejuvenation Work?
The combined bi-polar radio frequency and light energies of ELOS technology precisely and safely target pigmented lesions such as freckles, sunspots, and age spots. Vascular lesions like spider veins, and the redness from rosacea are also gradually lightened and fade.


Is Skin Rejuvenation right for me?
ELOS is an effective treatment for most skin types.


When can I expect to see the result?
Gradual and cumulative improvement of the skin tone is typically achieved in five (5) tratments. The total number of treatment sessions depends on the condition of your skin.


Does it hurt?
Cooling the skin surface helps keep you comfortable during treatment. This is a no-downtime procedure.

Sublime Skin Contouring


Sublime skin contouring comfortably reverses the signs of aging with no down time. ELOS effectively stimulates collagen production and improves overall quality in the areas that are most telling when it comes to age such as the eyes, cheeks, and the neck.


How does Sublime work?
The combined bipolar frequency and light energies of ELOS technology precisely heat the dermal tissue, stimulating collagen production within the target treatment area. Fine wrinkles are reduced, facial contours are improved and overall skin quality reveals a much smoother and even complexion.


When can I expect to see results?
Most patients see gradual and cumulative results throughout their Sublime treatment series. The total number of treatments needed depends on your skin's overall condition.


Does it hurt?
Sublime is a gentle and comfortable treatment requiring no downtime.

Sublative Skin Rejuvenation


Sublative Skin Rejuvenation is used to treat mild to moderate wrinkles, textural irregularities, and acne scars. It can restore your skin's natural beauty. Over time cumulative effects from sun exposure, loss of collagen and moisture, and airborne pollution and free radicals affect our skin's youthful appearance.


How does Sublative work?
Radio frequency energy is precisely directed into the skin in the form of a matrix. This treatment is safe and effective for most skin types, generates impressive results, and takes only about an hour.


When can I expect to see results?
The typical treatment protocol is 3 treatments about 4-6 weeks apart. The total number of treatments depends on your skin type.


Does it hurt?
Topical anesthetic creams and cooling are used to reduce unpleasent sensations during treatment. During treatment, many patients feel a warm prickly sensation as the energy enters the skin. After treatment, a "blush" or a pink sunburn appearance is common.
