Cosmetic Procedures

Fractional Laser Resurfacing (Active Fx™ /Deep Fx™):
In a single treatment, a high-energy beam of fractional CO2 laser light smooths lines, wrinkles and scars with minimal downtime and faster healing than conventional laser therapy. Patients notice tightened skin and the elimination of brown spots and other irregularities. Over time, the process also stimulates the formation of new, underlying collagen that provides better elasticity and support for the skin.

Botox® Cosmetic:
In one 10-minute treatment, FDA-approved BOTOX® Cosmetic utilizes a natural, purified protein to relax facial muscles that cause frown lines. Within days, patients will notice results that last up to 4 months.

Restylane Silk®:
By injecting Hyaluronic Acid, FDA-approved Restylane Silk® gel stimulates collagen to immediately diminish the lines alongside the nose or mouth, or enhance and rejuvenate the lips. Patients finish treatment in about 15 minutes, and can expect results to last from 6-9 months.


Restylane® injectable gel is indicated for injection into the mid-to-deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds). Patients finish treatment in about 15 minutes, and can expect results to last from 6-9 months.


Restylane Lyft®:
FDA-approved Restylane Lyft® filler stimulates the body's own natural collagen to immediately soften nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines. Patients finish treatment in about 15 minutes, and can expect results to last from 9-12 months.


Latisse® is a cosmetic application that stimulates eyelash growth to lengthen, thicken, and darken lashes for a more dramatic appearance. Patients can obtain a prescription from Dr. McCarty or Tara Beeler, PA-C.



Sclerotherapy Vein Treatments:
Sclerotherapy remains the best option to help treat unsightly leg veins. We utilize the most commonly used agent, a hypertonic saline solution. Treatments are usually quite successful, but never achieve 100% clearance. Multiple treatments may be required. We recommend using compression hose during the day, for 3-7 days after treatment. We can fit you for hose in our office during your consultation.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL/FotoFacial)
The skin rejuvenating IPL/FotoFacial corrects a variety of benign skin conditions such as brown spots, small veins and vessels using a series of intense pulsed light at varying wavelengths. Treatment can be performed on the face, neck, chest, and hands and requires little or no down time.
