Botox and Juvederm
Laser Rejuvenation also offers Botox and Juvederm to clients as part of your beautification process. Botox and Juvederm help smooth lines and wrinkles in the facial area by adding volume and lifting the skin. Using Botox and/or Juvederm also significantly reduces the effects of aging giving you that young beautiful look we all strive to maintain. Botox and Juvederm are administered by our certified physicians and nurse practitioners.
Botox, onabotulinumtoxin A, is used to relax the muscles around the eyes and the forehead to allow the skin folds to flatten providing younger appearing skin. Botox treatments are very simple and safe. Botox is injected into the muscles around the eyes using a small needle which is almost painless. Topical numbing medication can be applied first if desired for a more comfortable experience. Botox gradually starts to relax the muscle within the first few days and will last 3 to 4 months. We encourage you to follow up with us after the first 2 weeks to make sure that you are happy with your treatment and results. To achieve optimal results we encourage you to re-inject the Botox® before the effect is completely gone and recommend having it done every 3 months. As with all of our treatments at Laser Rejuvenation your consultation with your physician or nurse practitioner will help direct you in coming up with the best steps for your beautification process.
Botox is measured in units. The frown lines between the eyes (glabella) typically take between 20 and 25 units. Crow’s feet, the lines around the eyes, commonly will take between 10 and 12 units per side. Wrinkles across the forehead will require between 10 to 15 units. Your initial physician consultation will help direct you in determining the amount of Botox® needed to obtain your desired results.
Juvéderm Voluma® XC
The typical youthful cheek follows the shape of an ogee curve. With age, the curve starts to flatten and the cheeks sag. Juvéderm Voluma XC is the first and only FDA-approved filler to instantly add volume to the cheek area in people over the age of 21.
Wrinkles are only part of the aging equation. Volume loss in the cheeks is a major reason we lose that youthful profile over the years.
Juvéderm Vollure™ XC
Over time, your skin loses elasticity, which contributes to moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Juvéderm Vollure XC softens moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles to create a smoother appearance.
Juvéderm Volbella® XC
Juvéderm Volbella XC injectable gel is for injection into the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral rhytids in adults over the age of 21.
Juvéderm® Ultra XC
Juvéderm Ultra XC is a dermal filler that smooths away deep lines and wrinkles around the mouth and is used to smooth smile lines (parentheses), Marionette lines and vertical lines around the lips. Juvéderm Ultra XC is a hyaluronic acid filler that replaces the lost hyaluronic acid that is seen with aging and provides volume. Juvéderm Ultra XC is injected with a small needle below the lines and wrinkles in the and around the mouth. We at Laser Rejuvenation use Juvéderm Ultra XC because not only does it provide a smooth, younger appearance, it also is more provides a more comfortable experience since it contains lidocaine. Unlike Botox, Juvéderm lasts 9-12 months and the results are immediate. Juvéderm Ultra XC typically requires 2 to 4 syringes for optimal results. Your initial physician consultation will help direct you in determining the amount and placement of Juvéderm Ultra XC needed to obtain your desired results.
Kybella is the first FDA approved non-surgical injectable that reduces the excess fat accumulation under the chin and neck area. It’s a minimally invasive, safe and effective non-surgical treatment that provides long lasting results with minimal side effects.
Kybella is an injectable that includes a naturally occurring molecule called deoxycholic acid that’s found in the body. Kybella is injected under the chin to melt these fat cells, thus improving your appearance and profile of the area while eliminating fat cells from the body. Once destroyed, these fat cells are no longer able to store or accumulate fat. After your series of treatments (typically 2), the results are permanent. Fat cells removed from under the chin area with Kybella will not return. Kybella takes 2-3 vials based off the size of the area. Results are seen within TWO WEEKS and appearance continues to improve for up to 6 months.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is the use of laser energy to produce hair removal. The laser produces heat that is absorbed by the pigment, or melanin, in the hair. That heat penetrates the hair follicle, which causes the follicle to become disabled. Damaged hair follicles have difficulty growing hair again which results in the hairless skin which clients are seeking.
Laser Rejuvenation uses an invisible high energy beam of light that penetrates the hair follicle and kills it using heat. We use the Candela GentleMAX laser for our laser treatments. Once a client makes the decision to do laser hair removal they will contact Laser Rejuvenation (817-447-5270) to set up their initial consultation. The initial consultation is performed by a physician and is at no cost to the client. The physician will spend time with the client to fully understand the client’s goals with laser hair removal and talk through the steps in the process. Once the consultation is complete we will set you up with an appointment for the laser hair removal treatment. We encourage you to schedule your treatment immediately after the consultation. The hair grows in 3 different phases and only 20-30% of the hair is visible at one time. This is why multiple treatments are required.
Laser hair removal can be performed on most areas of the body and during your initial consultation the physician will work with you on these areas. Laser Rejuvenation offers treatments on face, upper lip, chin, brow, underarms, bikini, arms, legs, back, cheeks, neck and chest. If there are other areas you would like laser hair removal you should discuss that with the physician during your initial consultation. 6 treatments are recommend.
Skin Rejuvenation (Brown Pigment)
Skin rejuvenation treatments are recommended to remove unwanted brown spots. Skin rejuvenation uses the laser to target the melanin (brown pigment) cells in the skin to remove the appearance of aging and/or or sun damage to the skin. Once the treatment is completed the body will naturally remove unwanted sun spots and improving aging skin. Skin rejuvenation treatments can be performed on the face, neck, hands and the chest areas and may require multiple treatments. During your initial consultation the physician will work with you to identify the unwanted brown pigment and help you come up with a plan to remove the brown pigment to work your way to beautiful skin. Discounted pricing is offered on treatment packages. 1-2 treatments are recommended.
Laser Vein Removal
Laser vein removal uses the laser to remove spider veins. Spider veins are those small red, purple, and bluish vessels that appear on the facial area and legs. Laser vein removal treatments use the laser to target the unwanted vessels and seal them off where they dissolve which makes these unwanted vessels no longer visible on the skin. It is recommended that clients schedule multiple treatments to achieve optimal results and will be discussed in your initial consultation with the physician. Laser vein removal treatments are performed in 15 minute and 30 minute time blocks. 1-2 treatments are recommended.
Skin tightening is recommended to treat wrinkles and skin laxity. Skin tightening treatments activate the collagen using heat without causing any damage to the skin. It heats the inner layer of the skin which stimulates collagen and results in younger and tighter skin. Skin tightening treatments are recommended on the face and neck. During your initial consultation the physician will work with you to identify the areas that you want do the skin tightening on to achieve beautiful looking skin. Because skin tightening requires the collagen to activate it can take up to 6 months for optimal results however you will notice some immediate results with the reduction of wrinkles. Treatments are done every 3-4 weeks. Length of treatments is based off your results.
Laser Wrinkle Reduction
A non-ablative, noninvasive treatment of facial lines and wrinkles without the long recovery time of ablative treatments. Non-ablative lasers selectively damage and remodel the dermis, which is responsible for collagen production, to improve the skin's appearance while avoiding injury to the epidermis. This allows for effective treatment without interruption of everyday life or social engagements.

This no downtime procedure is among the most popular anti-aging treatments available. We are able to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and even stretch marks with a series spaced anywhere from 10-28 days apart.

Dermaplaning is a simple & painless procedure to exfoliate skin using a blade to scrap the dead cells (and "peach fuzz") that build up on the face or any part of the body. Exfoliation helps increase efficacy and penetration of topical products and the production of new, healthier skin cells. It stimulates collagen production that slows with time or sometimes even stops when a skincare regimen is neglected. NO DOWNTIME is needed after treatment and you'll notice a smoother, brighter complexion immediately. This is great for those with thin, fragile skin or severe rosacea skin when microdermabrasion cannot be performed due to it requiring suction with a hand piece. It has the same benefits as microdermabrasion but caters to a wider group of skin types and conditions.
SkinPen is a microneedling device that produces controlled micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s collagen and elastin production. This natural wound-healing process results in improvement in visible fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and overall skin tone and texture. Visit the SkinPen website for information on how SkinPen works.
PRP (platelet rich plasma) is the platelet concentrated portion of your blood that is rich in growth factor proteins. Platelets are part of the blood that bind together when they recognize damage further releasing growth factors, a process that is thought to stimulate the body’s healing and tissue regeneration process. This process helps rebuild the collagen network that is crucial for healthy skin texture and elasticity.
Microneedling with PRP (Vampire Facial) – After a quick blood draw using a small butterfly needle, your blood is placed into a centrifuge which spins the blood rapidly causing separation of platelet rich plasma (PRP) and red blood cells. The PRP is then applied to the area being treated and the microchannels created during microneedling allow the PRP to penetrate deep into the skin which results in enhanced collagen boosting and ultimately more smooth, plump and tight skin.
PRP Facial Injections (Vampire Face Lift) – PRP is injected into the areas of the face which show signs of volume loss and aging. PRP may be injected along with hyaluronic acid filler such as Juvederm.
PRP for Hair Loss – PRP is injected into the areas of the scalp where hair loss has occurred. This helps to repair damaged follicles and stimulate the follicles to produce new hair growth.
