Voluma for Cheek Contouring

Voluma for Cheek Contouring

While people often associate injectables with crow’s feet and lip enhancement, cheek contouring is becoming increasingly popular. A wonderful new FDA-approved injectable solution called Voluma (from Juvederm) is a highly recommended and simple way to achieve beautiful, pronounced cheekbones for both women and men.*

Contouring your face with makeup can be helpful in creating the illusion of defined cheekbones, but that only goes so far, as the mid-face is often the first part of our faces that age. Full cheeks are often seen as very appealing and are one of the reasons that the boosting of hollow cheeks is gaining popularity.*

Moreover, increasing hollowness of the cheeks is also a visible sign of aging. Because of this, many people are inclined to come in for Juvederm Voluma injections. Read more here: https://www.juvederm.com/volume-loss

The Link Between Loss of Cheek Volume and Aging

The primary link between aging and a loss of cheek volume comes with understanding the fact that the cheeks house a lot of fatty cells. These cells disappear over time. The key to maintaining a youthful appearance has a lot to do with restoring the volume of the cheeks.

Juvederm Voluma is a very smooth gel that is primarily made up of dense cross-linked hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural material that offers structure to the tissues and is normally found in the human body. Adding this substance to the cheeks restores the structure that has been lost.*

The Juvederm Voluma Injection Procedure

The process of restoring the lost volume with Juvederm Voluma is performed with a series of injections. The duration of the injection procedure can be quite short. The substance is usually applied to the top of the bone. When administered properly, the amount that needs to be injected isn’t usually much at all.*

After the Procedure

Voluma tends to provide an almost immediate boost with very impressive results. The change in your appearance will be noticeable and impressive, but most people are not able to pinpoint the exact reason for the enhancement.* The results of Voluma injections are evident for a considerable period of time. Results have been known to last for up to two full years after the date of treatment, longer than most other dermal fillers. Touch-ups, if needed, may be available.*

Your injection treatment will not require much downtime, if any; most people return to their usual routine the following day without issues. This is in stark contrast to surgical procedures, which often require the patient to stay home and rest for weeks on end.*

After the procedure, a degree of temporary bruising and tenderness around the area may occur. This is due in part to the fact that these injections go down deeper than most other cosmetic filler injections to provide deeper rejuvenation.*

The Answer to Hollow Cheeks

Make sure that you visit an experienced professional for your Juvederm Voluma injections, as incorrect administration of this substance can have negative effects.

Parfaire’s well-respected American Board-Certified physician, Dr. Winnie Moses, is a skilled medical professional and will be happy to meet with you for a consultation. To arrange your consultation, contact our office and set up an appointment.

*Disclaimer: Any claims of restoring volume or definition or reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles cannot be guaranteed. Individual results will vary and are often based on lifestyle factors, such as age, diet, exercise, smoking or alcohol use.

Top 5 Skincare Trends of Right Now

Top 5 Skincare Trends of Right Now

Like many things in western culture, trends come and go. Whether its fashion, food, or you guessed it, skin care. Certain things gain popularity and once skin care companies believe it is in high demand, they start to mass produce similar products. This includes treatments, packaging, and even the use of certain ingredients.

1. Hyaluronic-acid based moisturizers:

Hyaluronic acid has been around for several decades, but in the more recent years it has gained popular hype. The main reason that it is used as a skin hydrator because of its ability to hold 1,000 times it weight . It simply hydrates, which makes perfect sense because over 8% of people are not properly hydrated, therefore neither is their skin. It gained its popularity for being the optimal option for people who are prone to acne breakouts, due to the fear of oil.

2. Radiofrequency treatments:

Radiofrequency has gained popularity, especially in the medical aesthetics arena. Due to its ability to penetrate to the deep layers of skin, it is used in conjunction with heat and other forms of controlled trauma to activate and stimulate your bodies own collagen and elastin. Many these treatments typically are done at an office setting since radiofrequency can only be done by a skin care, or medical professional.

3. AHA/BHA exfoliating masks:

Masks have been a skin care must have for the past few years. With the uprising of korean skin care, sheet masks became all the hype. However in the past few months masks have moved back into jars and are now incorporating active ingredients such as AHA/BHAs. These are alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids which exfoliate your skin chemically. Some are naturally derived from plants and others are made chemically of course. These acids exfoliate your skin, ridding it of the dead skin cells on the outermost layer of your skin leaving your skin soft and clean and bright.

4. At-home beauty tools:

Because of the uprise of makeup and beauty in the more recent years, it has become apparent that everyone needs to improve their skin. Obviously, people do not have the time to see a skin therapist everyday, so they have began to sell skin-improving products for home.

5. Less cake, more skin:

That’s right ladies! It’s time to ditch that 30 min makeup routine in favor of a more natural look. This means that your skincare routine is that much more important.

BodyFX and Forma to Treat Unwanted Cellulite

BodyFX and Forma to Treat Unwanted Cellulite

If you feel self-conscious about your cellulite, it may be time to come in and have it treated. Our Body FX and Forma treatments are state-of-the-art cellulite solutions that numerous satisfied patients swear by.

What Is BodyFX?

BodyFX is a skin treatment that can not only improve the elasticity of skin on your thighs, hips, abdomen, and other parts of your body but also reduce the appearance of cellulite.

BodyFX is one of the first technologies to use focused and targeted radio-frequency energy to tighten the dermis and collagen, destroying the fat cells in the process. Not only will you be able to lose unwanted inches from treated areas, your skin will also be tightened and remodeled.

This non-invasive process offers long-lasting results. If you are not willing to undergo liposuction and are searching for a non-surgical alternative, BodyFX is a great choice. Improve your body contours with our cutting-edge BodyFX treatment.

What Is Forma?

Forma is another type of non-invasive procedure that can reduce skin laxity. This procedure can tighten almost every part of the body, including the thighs, arms, and abdomen.

The fractionated radio-frequency energy that is implemented by this process stimulates the production of collagen. This in turn gives the patient firmer, tighter, and healthier skin, making them look more youthful. This process can reduce the irregularities on your skin and can improve the texture. This procedure can be effectively used on all types of skin.

How Do BodyFX and Forma Work?

In BodyFX treatment, a number of techniques are implemented to remove cellulite and tone your body, including deep-tissue heating, radio-frequency energy, and suction-coupled negative pressure. These methods help in evenly distributing the heat to the body tissues that lie under the skin. The controlled energy pulses and vacuum suction work together to bring about a beautifully toned appearance for the skin.

Forma even targets the tissues that lie in deepest regions of the skin to ensure their rejuvenation. This is why it can reduce fat in almost any portion of the body. Forma can treat even those areas that other treatment procedures cannot, including the nasolabial folds, the lower eyelids, the jowls, crow’s feet, smile lines, the forehead, and even the neck.

Due to the precise use of radio-frequency energy, only those areas that you want to get treated will be targeted. Because both BodyFX and Forma are non-invasive, there is no downtime required. You’ll be able to return to your daily schedule immediately. The number of sessions required for each treatment varies from patient to patient.

So if you want to get rid of that ugly cellulite, we can provide you with ideal solutions: BodyFX and Forma treatments.

Take the First Step Towards Smooth, Cellulite-Free Skin

Want to Cut the Strings on Those Marionette Lines? Try Juvederm!

Want to Cut the Strings on Those Marionette Lines? Try Juvederm!

Marionette lines are the vertical facial lines that extend downward from the corners of a person’s mouth. These age lines can make a person look sad and depressed, negatively affecting the appearance of their otherwise-beautiful smile. They can also make a person look much older.

These harsh wrinkles are formed as the facial volume begins to deplete. Some of the causes of marionette lines are genetics, losing moisture in the skin due to aging, and excessive exposure to sunlight. Stress is also said to play a major role in their appearance.

Happily, getting rid of marionette lines has become incredibly easy, all thanks to convenient and simple Juvederm treatments!

What Is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a popular injectable dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the human body, attracts and bonds with water molecules in the skin tissues to hydrate the tissues. This serves to add volume to the region, making it look overall healthier and smoother.

Hyaluronic acid is synthesized in the laboratory using a biosynthesis process in order to manufacture Juvederm. Because hyaluronic acid is a substance found in the body, it is biocompatible and has a very low risk of allergic reactions.

Usage of Juvederm

To begin, the area where the Juvederm will be injected is cleaned thoroughly. A certain volume of Juvederm is taken in an injection as per the requirements of the patient. It then has to be injected where the marionette lines are formed.

Juvederm will be injected either to the mid or deep dermis in order to correct moderate to severe marionette lines.* Other mild facial wrinkles and age lines can be addressed by injecting into the upper dermis.

When the product is injected into the soft tissue, the folds, lines, and wrinkles are treated as the gel fills the space beneath them.* This creates a smoother and younger-looking appearance for the skin.*

After the use of Juvederm, the patient is advised not to perform any strenuous physical tasks for a short time. Going out in the sun should be avoided for a few days. Women who are either pregnant or nursing are advised against the usage of Juvederm.

Advantages of Using Juvederm

Juvederm usage is a great way of getting rid of marionette lines and bringing back the beautiful smile that one previously had. It has many benefits:

  • Juvederm is more effective than most other fillers.*
  • Juvederm can be used to treat facial wrinkles and lines.*

Arrange a Consultation

The Juvederm injection treatment must be performed by a trained expert in order to avoid any complications.* To find the right injector for you, contact Parfaire Medical Aesthetics. Board-certified physician Dr. Winnie Moses is the ideal choice for your next aesthetic procedure. Set up your consultation with Dr. Moses by contacting our office today.

Acne and the Power of Hydration

Acne and the Power of Hydration

Can Drinking Water Improve Your Skin?

You’ve heard it all before; drinking more water is the secret to beautiful skin. But is that really the truth, and is that true for everyone? Does drinking more water actually help clear away stubborn acne and fight early signs of aging as much as “they” say? Who is “They” anyway? Although drinking water has tremendous benefits for the skin, the lack of doing so may not be the only cause of your skin concerns like acne and signs of aging.

Acne has many causes

Many people who suffer from acne have a hereditary condition, meaning acne has been passed down from previous generations. To be exact, what is being passed down from your parents or grandparents is a bacterial strain called P-Acnes bacteria; a specific type of bacteria that resides in the follicles of the skin and causes an excess buildup of dead skin, sweat, and oil. This buildup blocks the follicle and causes irritation and inflammation leading to red, pus-filled lesions.

It’s important to realize that there are several different types of acne and different levels of severity ranging from 1 to 5. Type 1 is recognized as a dozen or less small red bumps, to type 5 being large, cystic, painful lesions. Some types of acne can be caused or worsened by intrinsic factors; such as hormonal imbalances, stress, and different medical conditions or medications. Some acne, however, can be caused or worsened by extrinsic factors such as lack of sleep, lack of proper nutrition, lack of exercise, inadequate hygiene, and lack of – you guessed it – water.

Why water is very important

Water plays a much more important role in your health than you probably think. Our bodies are made up of roughly 78 percent of water. Not to mention that our largest organ of the body is our skin, which itself is made up of around 63 percent water. Now imagine if you aren’t drinking enough? Not only will your entire body be affected, but your skin in particular. Lack of proper hydration can cause a multitude of issues ranging from severe dryness, dehydration, overproduction of sebum, early signs of aging like fine lines and loss of elasticity, and a slower cell turnover rate. Systemically, dehydration can cause digestive problems, fatigue, and poor brain function.

Not only will water help to fight against acne and early signs of aging, just a 20 percent increase in your daily water intake can cause a domino effect of healthy benefits in the body. Just to name a few, water helps the regulation of body temperature, lubricate joints, increase metabolism, flush toxic waste from the body, and aid in faster digestion. The benefits of drinking the proper amount of water are endless. Most people say that it can also increase your mood, sexual health and libido, promote weight loss, and benefits the hair, skin, and nails.*

Talk with your skin care professional

As skin care professionals, we see clients suffering from dehydration almost every day. Most people don’t even realize that their skin is lacking in hydration until they have a thorough skin analysis during the treatment. Here at Parfaire Medical Aesthetics, we have several treatments that can help to ease dehydrated skin as well as a plethora of organic products to stop the damaging effects of dehydration while leaving your skin supple and healthy.* Find out more about Acne-fighting treatments today by contacting our officeat 626-414-5511 or email reception@parfaire.com.

SilkPeel Dermalinfusion (SilkPeel Facial) vs. Hydrafacial

SilkPeel Dermalinfusion (SilkPeel Facial) vs. Hydrafacial

For decades, facials have been an excellent way to care for the skin by treating blemishes, resolving textural concerns, and restoring a healthy complexion.* However, with the influx of so many treatment options available, it can be a daunting task figuring out which treatment is right for you and your skin’s needs. There are a lot of safe and cost effective options now available, including both the HydraFacial and the SilkPeel Dermalinfusion (SilkPeel Facial), two of the newest and best facial treatments around… but which one is right for you? Let’s take a closer look.

HydraFacial

The HydraFacial is a skin resurfacing treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates the skin. With its patented Vortex tip, the device simultaneously removes dead skin cells and other impurities from the skin, while infusing the cells with serums that cleanse and moisturize.*

The HydraFacial combines Salicylic acid and Glycolic acid to chemically exfoliate the skin. This can have a positive effect on patients who struggle with active acne, but can dry and irritate clients who are not steadily experiencing breakouts. Unfortunately, the serum is housed in large containers of multi-use solutions, which could affect the efficacy due to exposure to light and air. Treatment takes about 30 minutes or less, and there is virtually no pain or downtime.*

SilkPeel Dermalinfusion (SilkPeel Facial)

The SilkPeel treatment combines non-invasive microdermabrasion and Dermalinfusion. It is equipped with a diamond tip and uses microdermabrasion technology to slough off the top layer of dead skin cells. This helps to address the buildup of dead skin, discoloration, and can stimulate collagen and elastin production; therefore reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.* Dermalinfusion involves the delivery of topical solutions that penetrate the dermal skin layers and initiate cell regeneration.*

Unique to the SilkPeel, there are four different serums that can be used during the treatment, which are chosen by your Esthetician or Physician during your consultation.

  1. The Hydrating serum that delivers intensive hydration using Hyaluronic Acid.*
  2. The Clarity solution that uses a combination of Salicylic acid and hydrating properties to gently exfoliate clients who are experiencing breakouts, without over drying the skin.*
  3. The Patented Lumyxl Brightening serum combines various unique brightening agents that are used to lift and lighten existing pigments due to post inflammation or sun damage.*
  4. The Vitamin-C serum which infuses the skin with a potent dose of vitamin-C which delivers powerful antioxidants as well as anti-aging and brightening benefits to the skin.*

The SilkPeel Dermalinfusion uses individual prepackaged disposable treatment heads to ensure no cross-contamination between patients. Every patient also receives his or her very own individually packaged infusion solution to use in its entirety during the treatment to ensure proper sanitation protocols. Basically, the solutions are always fresh.

The SilkPeel can be used on almost every skin type, due to the interchangeability of grit in the diamond-tip headpiece.* There are roughly six different options starting at a grit of 140 (for extremely sensitive skin, including rosacea) all the way to a grit of 60 (for thickened aging skin.) No matter the size of grit, when properly executed, the treatment has little to no downtime.* It not only evenly exfoliates the skin, but it also rehydrates dry damaged skin without over-processing it.*

Which gives you a better treatment?

The choice of treatment depends on the condition of the skin, as well as the specific skin concerns being treated. It is always recommended that you have a consultation with a Physician or Aesthetician, before undergoing any treatment of this kind. However, the SilkPeel is the obvious choice amongst skincare providers due to the customizable variables, sanitation, and efficacy of results.* Patients receive a more thorough exfoliation and a luxurious sanitary experience. The average price of the HydraFacial is $205 compared to the SilkPeel price of $150.

If you want to treat those stubborn blackheads, acne scarring, fine lines, or just need a total facial rejuvenation but don’t want to do any invasive harsh treatments, the SilkPeel Dermalinfusion can be the perfect option for you!*

Parfaire’s own Dr. Winnie Moses is a world-class board-certified physician who will be happy to provide you with a thorough skin analysis during a complimentary consultation. From there, should you want to have a SilkPeel facial, one of Parfaire’s experienced Medical Aestheticians who will perform the luxury SilkPeel treatment.

The Sensitive Issue of Hyperhidrosis

The Sensitive Issue of Hyperhidrosis

When you are suffering from certain embarrassing problems, the solution is often expensive and time consuming. One such problem is hyperhidrosis, where people tend to sweat too much. This problem is not something that an antiperspirant can resolve, and avoiding heat and humidity does not offer a real solution.

People often resort to surgery to address hyperhidrosis. For patients who are concerned about sweat patches on their clothing, surgery has been the only way to deal with the problem for quite some time.

However, hyperhidrosis can now be treated with Botox.* Botox offers a less invasive alternative to surgery. Few solutions for excessive sweating are as effective as Botox, and there are many reasons why people choose this muscle relaxant for treatment.*

Reducing Sweat Patches

It has never been an easy matter to hide patches of sweat on the underarms. Sweat glands are particularly numerous in areas such as the palms and the underarms, so these are the areas that are often targeted for treatment.

Using Botox disrupts the function of the sweat glands. This in turn stops the production of sweat, helping patients remain sweat free. This solution does not involve scalpels, incisions, or extended recovery time, so this is one of the most popular methods for getting rid of wet patches under the arms and other embarrassing sweat-related problems.*

What to Expect

The Botox treatment procedure does not involve anesthesia, although topical numbing cream is often applied to reduce any discomfort during the injections.* Because there is no anesthesia needed, this ensures that you won’t be groggy from the procedure or experience any anesthesia-related complications.*

The treatment time varies from 15 minutes to an hour depending on the extent of the patient’s hyperhidrosis.*

No Recovery Process

Because there is no removal of tissue, there is no recovery time needed after administration of Botox, making it a very attractive choice. Some patients may experience temporary redness and swelling, which can be controlled with cold compresses and medications.*

You won’t have to take time off of work for Botox injections. You will want to come in for another hyperhidrosis treatment session in the few months’ time, as the Botox breaks down in the body after a few months.

Choosing a Skilled Professional

Botox treatments are so easy that many patients mistakenly believe that any skill at administering the drug is all that the practitioner needs. However, when you are getting Botox treatments of any kind, be it for wrinkles or for sweating, then you need to consult a doctor.

The doctor should have experience in treating hyperhidrosis with Botox. This ensures that there are no risks to the patient stemming from treatment. Botox injections are completely safe in the hands of a skilled physician.

Learn More at Parfaire Medical Aesthetics

If you are tired of excessive sweating, wet patches on clothing, and body odor, Botox injections can be an excellent solution.* Arrange for a consultation at Parfaire Medical Aesthetics with board-certified physician Dr. Winnie Moses – contact us today to get started.

Fractora, Fraxel, and Co2: Which is best?

Fractora, Fraxel, and Co2: Which is best?

Technology is constantly changing, progressing, and always improving. So how do you know what type of treatment will be best for your skin? How do you know if the newest technology is really more advanced? Before we go into comparison, let’s take a look at these treatments individually to truly understand the difference.

Fractora, Fraxel, and Co2:

Which treatment is more advanced? Which one will give me the best results? Is one treatment better for my skin than the other?
Fractionated skin rejuvenation is when skin is damaged through controlled micro-injury and the skin surrounding the area is completely intact. This aids for a more rapid healing process, whereas before, lasers would just shed the entire top layer of skin at the same time. This caused the healing process to be anywhere between 3-6 months, varying from patient to patient.* This technique was used in the 1980s and was thought to be the “turn of the century” skin care treatment. Until now, that is.

Fractora delivers targeted bipolar RF energy to various selectable depths in the skin. RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to stimulate collagen production. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro-pins to resurface and restore the skin providing exceptional results with almost downtime.* With Fractora, the downtime is anywhere between 3-7 days with possible minor redness and flaking.* The downtime is so minimal, you can wear makeup 1-2 days post treatment.* With a proper home care regimen, the results can last anywhere from 2-3 years, making it the longest lasting fractional rejuvenation treatment to date.* This treatment is currently offered at Parfaire.*

Traditional Carbon Dioxide (C02) Laser Resurfacing removes the entire top layer of skin tissue to help reduce “age-spots” (also called sun freckles, liver spots, and lentigines), fine lines and other textural concerns.* The issue with this treatment is the potential for side effects. The side effects include scarring, hypo-pigmentation (whitened skin), and lines of demarcation which means you can see where the treated skin starts and the untreated skin stops. This can look extremely unnatural. The healing process can be anywhere from 4 weeks to 4 months varying from patient to patient, making it a very invasive treatment.*

Fraxel Laser (Fractional ablative Diode Laser) treatment works by drilling microscopic holes into the skin, leaving normal skin in-between to aid in the healing process (Dr. Karyn Grossman, MD.) Fraxel repair is a single treatment procedure involving a fractional ablative CO2 laser.* It causes moderate to significant discomfort and requires down time of a week or more, as well as 2-3 days of wound care.* Many people claim that Fraxel does not deliver the desired results after two treatments. Doctors began recommending a series of 3-5 treatments to truly change your skin.*

Experts agree that although these three treatments have similar parameters in means of areas of concern, it is evident that Fractora is truly the most advanced of these treatments. Truly a one of a kind treatment!*

The Fractora Procedure

Fractora is a safe and minimally invasive and is performed by a trained health professional. If desired, pain relief will be given before the treatment, as well as a topical numbing agent applied to cleaned skin. The trained specialist will not only determine what parameters are safe to use on your individual skin, but will also determine what settings will give you the optimal results with as little discomfort as possible.
The entire procedure will take 45 minutes to an hour, after which the patient will be allowed to go home.* It is recommended to rest for a time before resuming normal activities. You will be given a comprehensive home-care instruction sheet as well as a few topical agents to speed up the healing process and make for a more comfortable experience.*

Contact Our Office and Arrange a Consultation

Need a total facial rejuvenation but don’t want to go under the knife? Fractora may be the perfect option for you.* It’s tried, tested, and FDA-approved. Parfaire’s own Dr. Winnie Moses is a world-class board-certified physician who has successfully treated numerous clients with Fractora. Find out more about Fractora today by contacting our office for a free personalized consultation.

Restylane Silk Gives Patients Plump, Revitalized Lips

Restylane Silk Gives Patients Plump, Revitalized Lips

The aesthetics and beauty of the human face have long been the subject of adoration for poets and minstrels since the days of yore. While most of their pieces focused on the eyes, one of the most important subjects was the lips. The beauty of healthy and full-looking lips has caught the imagination of men and women all around the world.

Unfortunately, with the stress, pollution, and sedentary nature of the modern age, many people’s lips have been sapped of their natural beauty. A large number of women feel that their lips look dry, sullen, and lifeless.

The advent of modern surgical and medicinal techniques has made it possible to give your lips a boost. One of the easiest methods for regaining the life of your lips is through the magic of Restylane Silk.*

What Is Restylane Silk?

Restylane Silk is a lip-augmentation product designed for those above the age of 21. It’s comprised of hyaluronic acid and acts as a filler, giving your lips a fuller and more luscious appearance. The product has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the United States and is considered to be safe for adults of both sexes.*

How Does Restylane Silk Work?

The lips and the region around the mouth start to form wrinkles as part of the aging process. Tissue loss also occurs during this process, creating the lips to lose volume and become thinner. The overall effect is that of an unnatural shape of the lips.

Restylane Silk fills up the gaps between the creases as well as between the contact points of the cheeks and the lips.*The unique micro-particles of hyaluronic acid provide a smoother and more voluminous appearance to particular regions of the lips, letting you sculpt your lips exactly how you desire.*

Restylane Silk not only makes the lips look fuller, proper application also ensures improved symmetry and aesthetics.* Lips tend to look their best when they appear full at the center and taper off at the corners, with a well-defined bow-shaped structure called the Cupid’s bow at the center of the upper lip.* In addition, Restylane Silk improves the symmetry of the lips when viewed from the center as well as the sides.*

What Precautions Should Be Taken While Using Restylane Silk?

Those who have pre-existing ailments may need to take some precautions before using the product. It is best to consult a physician who will recommend the correct course of action if you have any of the following ailments:

• Allergies to lidocaine
• Bleeding disorders
• Anaphylactic allergies
• Stiff scarring disorders

The product has been tested to have minimal side effects.* Temporary mild swelling, mild bruising, and stiffness may occur, and if so, they can be taken care of with the help of your physician.*

Volumize Those Lips

At Parfaire Medical Aesthetics, we offer Restylane Silk and a wide variety of other aesthetic treatments to help you meet your beauty goals. During a consultation with American Board-Certified physician Dr. Winnie Moses, patients learn more about our treatments and find out which options are the best choices for them. Contact us to arrange your appointment.
