Medical Aesthetic Services

Given that the professionals at Agave Laser & Aesthetic Clinic are always conducting research for the development of new procedures, there are more services becoming available. Presently, the office offers chemical peels as its only medical aesthetic service.

Chemical Peels- Simply put, a chemical peel is a procedure in which an acid solution (which is relatively safe for the skin) is applied as a means of removing the outer layer of the skin. This has become the go-to method for many aging men and women as well as those who have experienced excess distress to their skin over the years.

Injectables

Injectables are a mildly invasive method in which various substances are injected into the skin to achieve a desired aesthetic result. The following is a look at the injectables offered at the Agave Laser & Aesthetic Clinic.

Botox

One of the more well-known injectables in existence, Botox has been in use for decades. Considered a go-to method for those who enjoy the spotlight, what was once considered a controversial cosmetic procedure is now considered a staple within some of the top social circles of the world. Injected as a means of blocking the signal from the nerves to the muscles, Botox is used to help the muscles in the face relax and lessen the appearance of wrinkles in the face. It is most commonly used on the forehead (to remove forehead lines), around the eyes (for crow’s feet) and around the mouth (to reduce frown lines).

Kybella

A prescription medicine used to help adults eliminate excess fat below the chin (also known as a double chin), Kybella is one of the latest injectables on the market. Highly sought after by women and men of all kinds, one of the main attractions to trying Kybella is that it permanently destroys the fat cells, preventing them from restoring or accumulating fat at a later date. Helping to improve the appearance and profile of each patient, those who have been struggling to find ways to remove excess chin fat will likely love Kybella. Moreover, it may take a few appointments before the process is complete. Most patients can expect an improved chin and neck profile in two or three treatment sessions spaced about four of five weeks apart.
