Q. Why don't you offer a guarantee?

The results of any cosmetic procedure are largely subjective. We make every effort to give you the best possible result. But each client is different, and so is their response to treatment. We do our best to underpromise and overdeliver. We aren't happy until you are bragging about the results of your treatment to family and friends.

Q. How many Fractional Resurfacing treatments will I need?

Typically clients receive three to five treatments spaced at one month intervals. Some clients get dramatic results from a single treatment. The skin continues to improve for about 4-6 months after the last treatment. More severe cases will benefit from more treatments.

Sculptra® injections, just like any other injection, can cause some bruising and swelling. The swelling and bruising usually lasts for a few days.
