We offer a wide range of cosmetic treatments, surgical and non-surgical, designed to enhance your natural beauty.

It Begins with the Skin

Our skincare treatments, including selected products and techniques, are designed to help you achieve radiant, youthful skin. They range in potency – from treatments recommended for mild to moderate concerns, to procedures that can produce dramatic outcomes.

Our facility has experience with multiple lines of skincare products through years of treating skin issues. We offer two of the finest product lines for skin care tailored to our patients.


We have yet to see results more prominent than with our FaceMD line.  We have worked closely with the development of this fantastic product line and are proud to offer this medical-grade skincare program.

Advanced anti-aging components will provide your specific skincare requirements. Cleansers, moisturizers, exfoliators and nighttime serums will make every step of your regimen count. These products are entirely natural and safe for all patients.

FaceMD offers formulations from the purest blends of organic ingredients, which are effective on all skin types. We can customize a treatment plan with easy instructions to have you looking spectacular for your big moment.

Skin Better Science

We also carry select SkinBetter Science products. This medical-grade product line has been featured in several health and beauty magazines, including In Style, Elle, Allure, and the Oprah Magazine to name a few. We have carefully chosen six products from this line to complete our menu of optimal skincare products.

SkinBetter Science includes retinoids, hyaluronic acid, peptides, and overnight creams to restore skin health and preserve youthful tone. Also available are eye creams, face masks, and travel kits.

Spa Services

Patients from South Louisiana and the Gulf Coast come to our clinic to be pampered and indulged. Our stress-free, comfortable facility offers advanced treatments to make your skin smooth and soft. Nothing adds to your beauty more than healthy, radiant skin.  Utilizing the expertise of skincare RN, Gena Taranto Robin, we offer the finest in spa services, including:


For those looking to improve the look of scars, boost collagen, or encourage hair growth, microneedling can offer a minimally invasive solution. In short, microneedling is the insertion of very fine short needles into the skin for the purposes of rejuvenation.

Morpheus 8

Our Morpheus 8 treatment is a new subdermal adipose remodeling device that fractionally remodels and contours the face an body. The Morpheus 8 treatment penetrates deep into the skin and fat, and morphs the aging face into a more desired smooth and sleek appearance.

Vaginal rejuvenation

Women opt for vaginal rejuvenation surgery for a variety of reasons, including pain from twisting and tugging of the labia when riding a bike or during intercourse, itching and irritation. Our vaginal rejuvenation surgery can relieve symptoms women experience and can improve self-consciousness.

Chemical Peels

Our superficial chemical peels deliver topical exfoliants which slough off the top layer of skin to minimize wrinkles and lines and even out skin tone. Medium depth peels are also available for more severe concerns – these peels include ViPeels and TCA Peels, which require additional time for recovery. If you are looking for the most dramatic results from a chemical peel before your wedding, be sure to give yourself several weeks for skin to heal, peel, and for cells to turnover.

Skin Resurfacing

We offer multiple skin resurfacing treatments which rejuvenate tissue removing the outer layer of dead and dull cells, revealing fresh, new skin. CO2 laser resurfacing, dermabrasion, and deep chemical peels can produce even skin tone, smooth away wrinkles, and increase collagen production for improved skin structure and support.

Although these procedures offer relatively quick results, there is some downtime. Book your consultation now to ensure you look great for your big day.


Facial expressions can create dynamic wrinkles, creating the early signs of an aging face. Neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport can freeze facial muscles to reduce and resolve fine lines about the forehead lines and mouth. With expertly administered injectables, however, you won’t look over-treated or frozen. Botox and Dysport before your wedding will still allow you to smile and express yourself naturally in photos.

These products are useful in treating forehead lines, crow’s feet, and the vertical lines around your lips. Utilizing all three products for anti-aging treatments produces optimal results which last longer.

Dermal Fillers

We use dermal fillers for patients who need additional volume and support. Our wide selection includes brand-names like Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, Sculptra, and Belotero. These facial fillers are temporary treatments to add volume and diminish wrinkles. Results are immediate and can last from six months to two years.


This collection of fillers include Juvederm Vollure, XC, Ultra XC, and Juvederm Voluma. They all consist of hyaluronic acid which invigorates facial tissues, restores volume, and smooths facial wrinkles and folds.


Restylane products include a family of hyaluronic fillers which provide skin support by binding elastin and collagen proteins. Each product works differently to target certain aging signs by smoothing depressions and lines. Restylane is also excellent tear trough filler and can be used to create plump, full lips.


Radiesse is a non-toxic, non-allergenic injectable filler, which can be used to contour the jawline or even stimulate collagen in the cheeks.  It is a popular dermal filler because its benefits last for two years or longer.


This unique product is also a hyaluronic acid-based filler which is ideal for very fine lines and wrinkles.  Because of its unique structure, it distributes more evenly in the underlying tissue than similar fillers causing no discoloration after injection.  It’s great for the tear trough area.

Body Contours

Our body sculpting procedures are designed to eliminate stubborn fat bulges diet and exercise ignore, ensuring you look your best your wedding dress. The following treatments and procedures can reduce pesky fat pads, leaving you feeling confident and beautiful.


This innovative technology of freezing away fat can slim down body parts which do not react as you wished to diet and exercise. Eliminating unwanted fat cells with Coolsculpting is quick, convenient and painless. Many patients fall asleep during their CoolSculpting sessions.

Popular treatment sites include the abdomen, thighs, flanks, and upper arms to name a few. Multiple sessions may be necessary, results are permanent, and there are no incisions or downtime.

FaceTite and BodyTite

The perfect treatment for men and women looking to remove pesky fat bulges and lift tissues is BodyTite.  FaceTite is also a great treatment for patients who want results that approximate those of a facelift without having the incisions or downtime.  This procedure delivers a taut and toned face/ body without incisions. Target sites include a lower face and neck, abdomen, arms, knees, thighs, back, bra roll, flanks, and buttocks.

We use an advanced system which administers radiofrequency pulses to target and removes unwanted fat as well as remodels the skin. Results are immediate and continue to improve for several months.

Double Chin Treatment

When photos are going off when you least expect them, you want the confidence your neckline is sleek, elegant and frames your face. Kybella and Coolsculpting are convenient treatments which are effective in eliminating that double chin effect. Results are permanent but may require multiple sessions.


This body sculpting procedure is the most popular cosmetic surgery globally. As operations go, it is minimally invasive and offers a short downtime. As a standalone procedure, liposuction can remove excess fat from areas including the neck, shoulders, back, upper arm, abdomen, thighs, and love handles.

Downtime depends on the target sites and the severity of the procedure. A more accurate estimate can be provided during your consultation.

Breast Lift

By restoring your breasts to a perky, youthful elevation, a breast lift can make you feel worry-free and confident in any wedding gown, especially with strapless styles. This surgery is designed to restore breast position and symmetry.  If you’ve lost a significant amount of weight before your wedding, you may be experiencing drooping breast tissue. A lift is a perfect way to restore your appearance and compliment the fit of your dress. Allow six weeks after surgery for full recovery.

Upper Arm Lift

This procedure enhances upper arm contours leaving you with a sleek, toned upper arm worthy of any sleeveless blouse or dress. It will also make you feel more confident in any swimwear. The procedure eliminates unwanted fat and skin from the arm above the elbow, an area of contention for women with hormonal fluctuations. Recovery will be complete a couple of months after surgery.

Facial Surgeries

When drastic results are necessary to prepare you for this momentous day, seeking aesthetic help through facial surgeries may be a wise choice. Some patients look to surgical facial rejuvenation to change the nasal shape, add chin projection, alleviate eyebags, loose skin around the jaw and neck, or sagging facial features.


This aesthetic surgery repositions underlying tissue, eliminates excess skin and takes at least a decade off your facial appearance. You’ll look young, vibrant and fresh for your big day. Facelift recovery lasts approximately two months, so plan accordingly.

Eyelid Lift

Blepharoplasty is an ideal cosmetic surgery to look and feel young. It brings your eyes out from hiding by lifting your upper eyelids and resolving any undereye circles or bags. Each procedure is a customized surgery which will make you look alert and beautiful. You should allow two months after surgery for complete healing.

Rhinoplasty and Chin Augmentation

Nothing is better than that beautiful profile picture on your wedding day.  If you are bothered by a nasal hump or the large size of your nose, a rhinoplasty may be the procedure you need to look and feel your best on your wedding day.  Having a well-projected chin will also help to give you the jawline contour and facial balance you need to have the best pictures possible on your big day.
