Dermal Fillers – Teosyal®

Are you searching for ways to look and feel younger? As we age, the fat and collagen beneath the skin start to wear down, resulting in those unwanted wrinkles and sagging skin. Fortunately, today’s advanced natural injectables are a safe, non-surgical solution to restore your youthful features!

At the IV we use hyaluronic acid based fillers to enhance lips, lift furrows, smooth lines and restore a youthful appearance to your skin. Hyaluronic acid is an important anti-aging molecule found naturally in our skin but declines as we age. It is essential for maintaining the skin’s hydration and volume. Dermal fillers help restore lost volume and create healthy glowing skin. Treatments include: lip enhancement, cheek augmentation, tear troughs, crow’s feet, nasal folds, smile lines, forehead furrows and contouring of the neck and neckline.


  • removes fine lines
  • fills in deep wrinkles
  • restores volume to the face while still looking natural
  • creates or restores facial volume
  • redefines the face contour

Botox – Xeomin®

Whether you want to prevent or restore that youthful appearance, Botox is the #1 anti-aging treatment. Botox relaxes the facial muscles to soften lines and wrinkles. Most commonly, Botox is used to treat crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead lines.


  • non-surgical solution to wrinkle reduction
  • makes you look more refreshed or awake
  • prevents premature wrinkling
  • no treatment down time

The IV currently uses botulinum toxin provided by Xeomin® Cosmetic™

Lip Enhancement

Plump up your lips with all natural fillers. Whether you’re looking for a little, or a lot, your lips will look naturally fabulous!

At the IV our lip enhancement treatments include a hyaluronic acid based filler, an important molecule, which is found naturally in our skin but declines as we age. Hyaluronic acid not only hydrates and adds volume to the lips but it also stimulates the cells in the skin to produce more collagen resulting in a longer lasting treatment.


  • increased lip volume
  • improved symmetry of lips
  • reduced lip wrinkles
  • results are instantaneous

The vitamin facial is both corrective and preventative. This rejuvenating facial creates visible changes to your skin due to its high concentration of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and hydrating hyaluronic acid. Delivered by a specialized microinjection technique these essential nutrients are injected deep into the dermis layer of your skin.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial

The PRP Facial is an anti-aging skin rejuvenation treatment that works by concentrating the healing power and regeneration of skin through activation of platelets. Platelets are cells in the blood that help tissue heal and grow healthy new cells. PRP promotes the body’s own collagen to grow and regenerate new tissue resulting in smoothing and tightening of the skin. The results of PRP facials include improved skin texture and tone, reduced appearance of dark circles under the eyes, reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and healthy, glowing skin!

Eyelash Extensions

Lash Extensions are a glamorous way to extend the length and thickness of natural eyelashes, and are a practical, convenient and beautiful alternative to the daily use of mascara. Unlike decades-old, traditional false lashes, lash extensions are the first innovation in lash lengthening that can be worn daily, without nightly removal. Because each tapered, synthetic lash is bonded to a single natural lash, the final result is of effortless glamour and difficult to detect even close up.


  • no more mascara
  • waterproof, sweat proof, oil proof lashes
  • low maintenance
  • saves you time on your regular beauty routine
  • effortless beauty 24/7
