Instead of giving family members and friends the usual scented soaps, nail salon gift certificates or other beauty products they may or may not use, why not pamper them with a cosmetic enhancement treatment offered by the Lawler Centre? Dr. Cory Lawler provides a wide variety of non-invasive/minimally invasive skin or body rejuvenating techniques designed to restore youthfulness to skin or a more attractive shape to your body.

Dr. Lawler's Ultimate Beauty Gift Guide for the Holidays

Botox Botox injections contain a safe, effective solution that relaxes permanently contracted muscles responsible for fine lines and wrinkles. Botox also smooths away neck wrinkles by relaxing the platysma muscle covering a broad area of the lower jaw, neck and upper chest. Botox works to eliminate wrinkles by inhibiting transmission of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine (ACh). This chemical causes muscles to contract or expand. By blocking ACh, Botox makes muscles remain in a relaxed state, creating visibly smoother, more youthful skin. Juvéderm Juvederm is an injectable dermal filler that reduces the appearance of moderate to severe skin wrinkling and folding by introducing rich amounts of hyaluronic acid under the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in the human skin and muscles. Extremely absorbent, powerfully hydrating and volume enhancing, hyaluronic acid also improves the skin's natural tone by volumizing the epidermis and dermis and purging wrinkles. Restylane For the removal of severe facial folds and wrinkles, injectable Restylane is recommended by Dr. Lawler for eliminating nasolabial folds and deep brow wrinkles. Restylane contains a synthetic gel called NASHA, or “non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid” to dramatically improve skin texture and tone. In addition, Restylane is used to "plump" up thin or recessed lips while smoothing away fine lines at the corner of the mouth. Acne Blue Light Therapy Targeting bacteria producing acne inflammation is key to reducing acne outbreaks. Acne bacteria release porphyrins that occur naturally in the body. When porphyrin molecules are absorbed by blue light emitted at specific wavelengths, free radical damage eradicates the bacteria and diminishes acne. Vein Sclerotherapy Removing unsightly spider veins with sclerotherapy is as simple as Dr. Lawler injecting a saline solution into veins to cause them to collapse, shrivel up and be absorbed by the body. A sclerotherapy session takes less than an hour. No anesthesia is needed and patients do not have to worry about downtime. Acid Peels Acid peels use chemicals that correct uneven pigmentation, reduce acne, diminish wrinkles, shrink large pores and eliminate other signs of aging. Peels remove facial debris and dead skin cells using a substance called trichloroacetic acid (TCA). Patients undergoing facial acid peels enjoy improved, cleaner, healthy-looking skin. Dysport An injectable wrinkle eraser using a neurotoxin similar to Botox, Dysport diffuses farther from injection sites so that patients enjoy more expansive smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles while not needing as many "touch-up" injections as they might with Botox. Radiesse Radiesse is a biocompatible, non-allergenic dermal filler/volumizer effective at filling in deep nasolabial folds and plumping out most acne scars. Containing hydrating gels and a volumizing, body-friendly substance called calcium hydroxylapatite, Radiesse dissolves naturally into facial tissues to provide rapid improvements in damaged skin. Kybella If you have a family member or friend who wishes they could get rid of stubborn neck or chin fat, well--you guessed it! There is an injectable that can do just that. Kybella is a fairly new treatment formulated to dissolve chin and neck fat is four or five treatments. Completely noninvasive, Kybella works by destroying fat cell membranes so that fat is absorbed by the body. Having an attractively shaped body or smooth, more youthful-looking skin no longer requires surgery, anesthesia, pain or too much of your valuable time. Recipients of your beauty gift will receive an in-depth, professional consultation regarding their needs and expected results before undergoing a specific treatment. Dr. Lawler also performs surgical cosmetic procedures such as abdominoplasty, liposuction and breast enhancements.
