Medspa Services

As non-surgical procedures grow increasingly powerful and effective, patients have an array of options to help them look their best in a quick office visit with minimal to zero downtime required. These range from facial rejuvenation treatments to restore a more youthful look to the face and skin as well as body contouring procedures to tighten sagging skin and diminish the appearance of cellulite.

Dr. Patronella’s professional and well-versed aesthetic specialists have dedicated their careers to producing solutions for the diverse issues they face.

  • Wrinkle Reducers

    Injectable neuromodulators block chemical signals that instruct facial muscles to contract, thereby reducing or eliminating lines caused by repeated muscle movement. These wrinkle-reduction treatments can smooth and rejuvenate skin without downtime.

    Wrinkle Reducers

    BOTOX® Cosmetic

    BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable neuromodulator that temporarily relaxes facial muscles to smooth dynamic wrinkles (lines caused by repeated muscle movements). When injected, BOTOX® Cosmetic prevents and diminishes lines such as crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines.

    Dysport®

    Much like BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport® is a neuromodulator that blocks chemical signals and smooths wrinkles. This product is more diluted than BOTOX® Cosmetic, allowing it to spread more quickly. Although it is primarily used for moderate to severe frown lines, Dysport® can achieve many of the same effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic.

  • Injectable Fillers

    Injectable dermal fillers address facial volume loss and deep lines by physically filling in the areas of loss. As no two patients are alike, our aestheticians provide customized treatment plans for every patient, assessing which filler will achieve the best aesthetic outcome for an individual. Often referred to as the “liquid facelift” or “non-surgical facelift,” cosmetic injectables use a variety of non-invasive facial injections in targeted areas to restore youthful contours, smoother skin, facial fullness, and self-confidence.

    Tiered discounts are available on most syringes when you receive multiple syringes in the same visit.

  • Skin Rejuvenation

    Fresh and glowing skin is the foundation of a youthful, healthy appearance. Our knowledgeable skincare experts specialize in helping you achieve and maintain radiant, youthful-looking skin at every age with our skin rejuvenation treatments.

    As with most non-surgical aesthetic procedures, the best results are achieved with a series of treatments.

    Get More Info

    Skin Rejuvenation

    Clear + Brilliant/Perméa

    Clear + Brilliant with Perméa uses fractional laser energy to treat and prevent the earliest signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. The Perméa handpiece is optimized to improve skin tone and texture while enhancing skin permeability. This allows for better absorption of skincare products.

    Fraxel®

    Fraxel® laser technology improves skin tone and texture while treating aging, sun-damaged, and scarred skin. This treatment is ideal for people who want to look younger without dramatic changes or downtime.

    HALO™

    With the use of groundbreaking non-ablative and ablative wavelengths, Halo™ by Sciton offers award-winning results that have been helping patients achieve dramatic skin improvements everywhere. Sun damage, age spots, freckles, discoloration in the skin, and skin quality can be addressed with this simple but advanced laser treatment. Halo™ uses controlled areas of coagulation at chosen depths that penetrate the dermis to stimulate new collagen. Additionally, a microlaser hits the epidermis to address tone and texture quality. In this way, the Halo™ treatment can incorporate the best qualities in laser therapy, offering lasting results in just a few sessions.

    SkinPen®

    SkinPen® is a microneedling device that creates thousands of micro-wounds (micro-channels) in the skin to stimulate a natural healing response. Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT) as it produces high levels of natural collagen. Microneedling is appropriate for patients looking to tighten skin, improve facial scars, and enhance skin tone.

    SkinPen® With PRP

    Microneedling with PRP (also known as a vampire facial) is ideal for men and women looking for that “fresh-faced” and “glowing” look. Using the natural restorative properties of our bodies, the vampire facial can restore visible smoothness, reduce acne scars, and shrink pores. This treatment requires blood to be drawn from your body and spun in a centrifuge to separate the growth factors. After this process, specialists are left with powerful platelet-rich plasma that allows the body to build more blood vessels, collagen, and dermal tissue when injected into the face. As time transpires and the skin repairs itself, patients will experience a healthier and more vibrant facial complexion.

    TRL Laser

    The TRL laser offers aggressive laser resurfacing to treat surface-level concerns while stimulating collagen production. This laser system is appropriate for mild to deep wrinkles, acne scars, surgical scars, pigmented lesions, actinic keratoses, poor skin tone and texture, and lax skin — including delicate areas around the eyes. The TRL Laser system can treat all skin types.


  • Skin Tightening

    Our collagen production begins to slow down as early as age 30. Our non-invasive to minimally invasive skin tightening treatments can help jump-start collagen production, giving you a sleeker neck, lifted brows, and a more defined jawline. Plus, we offer skin tightening on problems areas like the abdomen, arms, knees, and elbows.

    Skin Tightening

    BodyTite®

    BodyTite® by InMode® utilizes radiofrequency technology to remodel and tighten body areas that were previously unattainable without plastic surgery. This system applies directional RF energy to the abdomen, thighs, hips, arms, and other areas to tighten the dermis and subdermal connective tissue.

    Evoke

    Evoke offers hands-free remodeling of the face, including the jawline. This non-surgical treatment is ideal for patients looking to get rid of the double chin and those looking to refine the cheeks and neck.

    Evolve Tite

    Evolve Tite is a hands-free skin remodeling device that uses bipolar radiofrequency energy to tighten skin on the face and body. This is commonly used in combination with Evolve Trim and Evolve Tone for total contouring.

    FaceTite®

    FaceTite® uses radiofrequency energy to tighten skin and contour facial features (like the chin and jawline). This InMode® treatment contracts skin and coagulates fat by heating the tissues above and below the skin’s surface.

    Morpheus8™

    Morpheus8™ is a fractional radiofrequency microneedling treatment that remodels the face and body. Once micro-channels are created in the skin, radiofrequency energy is driven into the skin to stimulate collagen, thus tightening the skin and underlying tissues. This non-surgical treatment can rejuvenate and transform skin on the face and body.

    Ultherapy®

    Ultherapy® uses ultrasound technology to create firmer, tighter skin for a rejuvenated facial appearance. This non-surgical treatment delivers heat beneath the skin, encouraging the body to produce age-fighting collagen and boosting cell reproduction. Ultherapy® can be applied to the face, neck, and chest and is ideal for patients not ready for a surgical facelift.

  • Spa Services

    Your skin health is vital to your overall health and self-esteem. While surgical procedures can improve the tightness of your skin, they cannot treat tone and texture concerns. Our spa services transform and relax your skin, allowing for a fresh, healthy, and rejuvenated appearance.

    Spa Services

    Chemical Peels

    Chemical peels apply various chemical solutions to the face that penetrate deep into the skins’ dermis. While some mild chemical peels are non-ablative, most peels cause the damaged upper layers to flake off, allowing healthier, new skin to shine through. Chemical peels are known to treat many surface-level skin concerns, from pigmentation irregularities to fine lines and wrinkles.

    Diamond Glow™ Hydrating Facial

    Our most popular spa treatment is our Diamond Glow™ hydrating facial. Diamond Glow is a patented, non-invasive, three-in-one treatment that simultaneously exfoliates, extracts, and infuses skin with condition-specific serums for an all-inclusive treatment in one step. The Diamond Glow™ provides immediate and long-lasting results for all skin types with no downtime.

    Diamond Glow™ TNS Advanced+

    The Diamond Glow™ TNS Advanced+ infuses our Diamond Glow™ hydrating facial with TNS Advanced + serum from SkinMedica®. This serum is clinically proven to help reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.

    Microdermabrasion

    Over time, dead skin cells, facial oils, and dirt collect and clog your pores, causing inflammation, acne outbreaks, and dry, lackluster skin. Microdermabrasion removes surface-level dirt and dead skin cells to clear the pores. This allows for clearer skin and better absorption of skincare products.


  • Hair Solutions

    Men and women turn to hair solutions to remove unwanted hair as well as stimulate hair growth. These treatments help target your hair-related concern to increase confidence and comfort.

    Hair Solutions

    Laser Hair Reduction

    Laser hair reduction uses laser heat to target the hair follicles and slow or stop hair growth. Common treatment areas include the legs, underarms, bikini areas, back, chest, and face. Multiple treatment sessions are needed to treat the hair follicles at all stages of growth.

    PRP for Hair Growth

    PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is one of the best treatment options for men and women concerned about thinning hair. PRP is an injectable treatment (taken from a derivative of the blood) that contains a high volume of growth factors. These growth factors have been shown to reawaken the hair follicles, stimulating hair growth.

    Enhanced With ACell® PRP for Hair Growth

    We offer an exclusive blend of your own PRP and ACell MicroMatrix® — a wound healing product — that can extend and enhance your hair growth results.


  • Sweat Reduction

    Men and women who suffer from hyperhidrosis experience excessive sweating that interferes with their day-to-day lives and impedes their confidence levels in personal and professional situations. Sweat reduction treatments help men and women regain their confidence and gain comfort.

    Sweat Reduction

    miraDry®

    miraDry® is our FDA-cleared non-surgical treatment that uses thermal energy to create heat in the underarm area where bothersome sweat and odor glands reside and safely eliminates them. The treatment is clinically proven to have an average of 82 percent sweat reduction and 89 percent odor reduction.


  • Cellulite Treatment

    Cellulite is a common occurrence among women and some men, regardless of the presence of excess fat. Cellulite isn’t like traditional fat pockets. These orange peel, cottage cheese-looking pock-marks are resistant to diet and exercise because cellulite occurs when fat pushes against and becomes trapped by the fibrous bands of the connective tissue. Therefore, cosmetic treatments are needed to eliminate these unwanted marks.

    Cellulite Treatment

    Cellfina®

    Cellfina® is a non-surgical cellulite treatment that severs the fibrous bands of the connective tissue pressing against the fat cells, thereby creating the look of cellulite.

    QWO®

    QWO® is the first FDA-approved injectable for the treatment of unwanted cellulite. After a series of three treatments, patients can experience smoother skin with fewer cellulite pock-marks on the buttocks.


  • Fat Reduction

    When surgery isn’t an option or if you just have a small pocket of stubborn fat, we offer FDA-approved, scientifically proven solutions for fat reduction.

    Fat Reduction

    CoolSculpting®

    CoolSculpting® has gained popularity over recent years for its ability to freeze away unwanted fat cells. By exposing localized areas of fat to controlled cooling, sensitive fat cells freeze and die while healthy cells remain undamaged. This allows men and women to permanently reduce stubborn, diet and exercise-resistant fat.

    Evolve Trim

    Evolve Trim is a hands-free body contouring and cellulite reduction treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to target fat tissue and tighten skin. This non-surgical treatment can target multiple areas of the body, including the abdomen and thighs. Because this device is hands-free, you can feel assured that there will be an even distribution of RF energy across the treatment area.

    KYBELLA®

    KYBELLA® is an injectable treatment that permanently reduces submental fat (fat pockets beneath thin) to eliminate the look of the double chin. This helps to create a more defined and refined facial structure.


  • Toning/Muscle Stimulation

    Our “hands-free” gym works by emitting electrical stimulation (EMS) to stimulate involuntary muscle contractions to target specific muscle groups for increased strength and a more refined look.

    Toning/Muscle Stimulation

    Evolve Tone

    Evolve Tone by InMode® uses EMS to stimulate involuntary muscle contractions, similar to those achieved with a series of strenuous workouts. Patients can experience stronger, firmer, and more chiseled abdominal, hip, and buttock contours after a few treatment sessions.


  • Vaginal Rejuvenation

    Excessive stretching of the vaginal muscles is common after vaginal birth or due to aging. Damage can diminish sensation during sexual activity, reduce satisfaction, increase urinary incontinence, and change the relationship between partners.

    Vaginal Rejuvenation

    ThermiVa®

    ThermiVa® is a non-surgical, non-ablative radiofrequency treatment that heats the inner tissue of the vagina to stimulate collagen, leading to naturally tighter skin and tissue.


  • Facial Threads

    Facial threads can provide youthful facial rejuvenation results that are instant, improve with time, and leave no scars. They are made of absorbable surgical sutures composed of polydioxanone (PDO) and are inserted to help lift and secure sagging facial tissues. These sutures have been used in cardiac surgeries for the past 60 years and are the safest materials to be implanted in the body.

    Facial Threads

    NovaThreads

    NovaThreads are absorbable PDO threads that lift and secure sagging facial tissues (particularly in the midface). Once these threads are inserted, their barbed structure grabs onto the surrounding tissues, ensuring the most secure attachment. As these threads are absorbed, they stimulate the body to produce more collagen.


  • Skincare Products

    One of the primary ways our beauty lasts is through our measures to rejuvenate our skin and support its health. Skin rejuvenation requires comprehensive skincare systems designed to improve skin conditions, including fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, rosacea, dry skin, oily skin, and sensitive skin. Our skin specialists are highly experienced and able to provide you with the skincare you need for optimal results.

    We use a combination of growth factors — proteins that help support a healthy, youthful skin structure — and other naturally occurring compounds crucial to the regeneration of healthy skin. The ingredients are captured through a process that works similarly to the skin’s natural renewal process.

    Each of our skin rejuvenation products is hand-selected to provide our community of patients with high-quality results. The ingredients in these skincare formulations deeply penetrate your skin to regulate and improve cell function. After seeking guidance from our certified specialists, patients can take home powerful therapies that work and are customized for their unique skin texture, tone, elasticity, and age.

    We carry physician-dispensed skincare lines that are proven to help improve the tone and texture of your skin while restoring and preserving its youthful radiance.
