You may have heard of Morpheus8 as a way to rejuvenate aging skin in the face, but did you know Morpheus8 is an effective way to rejuvenate the body, too? In fact, it’s one of the best all-in-one body contouring devices available. Here’s what to know about Morpheus8 for body and how Laser Skin & Wellness can help you achieve your body goals with minimal downtime.

How does Morpheus8 for body work?

Morpheus8 is a radiofrequency microneedling device. It uses a specialized handpiece with thin, gold-coated needles that generate tiny wounds in the skin (up to 8mm deep), boosting collagen production. Additionally, these needles emit radiofrequency energy to generate gentle heat and further contract the skin. Over time, Morpheus8 can achieve a “shrink wrap” effect for better definition and skin quality. This can have a variety of benefits in facial rejuvenation and in body contouring.

What are the benefits of Morpheus8 for body?

Morpheus8 can achieve more than just skin tightening. It’s an effective option for a variety of body concerns including:

  • Skin laxity
  • Stretch marks and scars
  • Cellulite
  • Stubborn fat
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Rippling

Morpheus8 is equipped with a special “burst mode” technology that can administer radiofrequency energy at multiple depths in a single millisecond pulse. This improves downtime, treatment length, skin injury, uniformity, and customizability. With Morpheus8, you can achieve complete subdermal fat tissue remodeling without the need for incisions.

Additionally, Morpheus8 for body is safe for all skin types and drastically reduces the risk of hyperpigmentation. This makes it an effective option for many patients looking for non-surgical body contouring platforms that can address a variety of concerns and areas at once.

What areas can Morpheus8 for body treat?

Morpheus8 for body can treat virtually any area on the body. This includes:

  • Stomach
  • Upper arms
  • Buttocks
  • Knees
  • Bra fat
  • Thighs
  • Flanks
  • Hips

Anywhere that you’ve experienced concerns like stubborn fat, skin laxity, or cellulite can benefit from Morpheus8. Because of Morpheus8’s advanced technology, it can even be used for full-body rejuvenation.

What can I expect after Morpheus8 treatment?

After Morpheus8 for body, you can typically return to your regular schedule within 1-2 days. You may experience some redness and sensitivity, and you should make sure to keep the area moisturized with a staff-recommended moisturizer while your skin heals. Morpheus8 comes with drastically reduced downtime versus other body contouring devices, although you may require a package of 2-3 treatments for best results. Our team can help you determine your best options and treatment plan during your body contouring consultation.

Hormone replacement therapy or supplementation has a long history, and hormone replacement has been demonstrated to have many benefits. For women, hormone replacement, when given at the proper time, using the proper hormones and dosing levels, and when monitored properly, can reduce risk of osteoporosis, heart disease, and even some cancers.
Because hormone replacement has become controversial since the publication of the Women’s Health Initiative study (WHI), many women have been afraid of hormone replacement and many doctors reluctant to prescribe it. However, with new information and worldwide data supporting the safety and efficacy of hormone replacement when given properly and monitored properly.

What is pellet hormone therapy?

Pelleted hormone therapy has a long history of use in men, and has become increasingly popular for women. Pellet hormone therapy involves inserting a tiny hormone containing pellet (about the size of a grain of rice) under the skin, usually in the buttocks region, every few months. The pellet releases the hormone slowly throughout that time providing continuous blood levels of the hormone. 
The most common hormones found in pellets are testosterone and estradiol, the “male” and “female” hormones, respectively. Monitoring of blood levels and hormone metabolites is an important part of therapy, and additional supplements or prescriptions may be needed to provide the proper hormonal support.

What is the procedure like?

After baseline evaluation including laboratory hormone levels and a full history and physical exam and evaluation of previous hormone replacement dosages (when appropriate), a starting dose is calculated. Ideally, this dosage should be at or just below the calculated dose so that normal levels are not exceeded.
Once the evaluation is complete, the pellets are available, and dosing is confirmed, an office visit for sterile pellet placement is scheduled. Typically, the pellets are inserted under the fat in the buttocks near the hip bones. This process is performed by first cleansing the skin, then numbing the skin and tissue under the skin and making a very small nick in the skin. A sterile hollow needle (trocar), large enough to fit the pellet through, is then placed through the skin and into the underlying fat pad, and the pellets inserted through the needle. The device is then withdrawn leaving the pellets about an inch under the skin.
The skin is closed with a steri-strip surgical tape and covered with sterile gauze which remains in place for 1-2 days.  Heavy exercise should be avoided for 72 hours following pellet placement, but normal activity is fine.  

Are there any downsides to pellet hormone therapy?

While pelleted hormone therapy can be very satisfying for many women, it is not for everyone. It is absolutely necessary to have a full evaluation and understanding of an individual’s response to hormone therapy.
We begin with a carefully planned and monitored regimen in order to achieve optimal results. Often, the unsatisfying results occur because the dosage was started at an excessively high level and not tailored to the individual. Our philosophy of “start low, go slow” with close monitoring of symptoms and hormone levels tends to create greater patient satisfaction and emphasize safety and tolerability.
Most women do well with placement every 3 months, although some are able to go longer as they metabolize the hormones more slowly. Creating a regimen that is specific to each patient is the primary objective in offering successful pellet hormone therapy.
Dr. Kiley is accepting appointments for new and ongoing hormone replacement therapy consultations including pelleted hormone therapy. This therapy can be helpful when traditional hormone replacement therapy fails to provide satisfactory relief or creates difficulties with consistent use due to inconvenience.

The Geneo Facial is one of the newest skin rejuvenation procedures offered at Laser Skin & Wellness. This innovative treatment combines three different technologies into one facial to give your skin an ultimate refresh with exfoliation, oxygenation, and nourishment.

What is Geneo Facial?

Geneo Facial involves three steps to rejuvenate your skin from the inside and out:

1. OxyGeneo

OxyGeneo is a unique treatment that creates tiny bubbles of carbon dioxide on the surface of the skin. This causes your body to send more blood and oxygen to those skin cells; skin oxygenation is incredibly important because oxygen helps your skin heal more effectively, absorb skincare products better, and appear brighter and healthier.

2. TriPollar RF

Radiofrequency energy (RF) heats both the superficial and deep layers of the skin for maximum collagen and elastin production. These two proteins are the building blocks of healthy, firm skin. Without enough collagen and elastin, your skin will start to show signs of aging like sagging or loose skin. TriPollar treatment simultaneously heats fat cells, causing them to shrink, which tightens and recounters the treated area.

3. Geneo Oxypods

Geneo Oxypods are made from a unique formula of serums and ingredients that give your skin nutrition while exfoliating and oxygenating the surface. There are several Geneo Oxypod options you can choose to target your specific skin concerns. For example, the charcoal-based pods improve the texture and appearance of oily skin and Oxypods with red algae rejuvenate dull skin and reduce fine lines. Each formula is custom-made to treat all skin types and your specific skin concerns.

Geneo Facial Results

You need oxygen to live, and your skin needs to breathe too! A Geneo facial will eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, smooth and tighten the skin, brighten your complexion, and create a more youthful experience using anti-aging ingredients and technology. Exfoliation paired with collagen stimulation will remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin while speeding up the growth of new, healthy cells below the surface. You will see immediate results with gradual improvements of vibrant, glowing skin, no longer dulled by a surface of dead skin.

The Geneo Facial is the ideal treatment for just about anyone. To learn more about this exciting, new facial and see how you can benefit from it, schedule a consultation with Laser Skin & Wellness today using our online contact form.

EMSCULPT NEO is an all-in-one device that builds muscle while reducing fat and is the newest version of BTL’s devices. It involves a quick, non-invasive treatment plan that will help you sculpt your ideal body after just a few sessions.

Body Sculpting

Body sculpting is a nonsurgical solution that reduces fat and helps contour different areas of the body. EMSCULPT is an innovative design – the first to build muscle as an alternative to having to lift weights for months to acquire the body you want. EMSCULPT NEO continued this innovation with a new version to simultaneously reduce fat and stimulate muscle growth with the addition of radio frequency to reduce fat.

How Does It Work?

EMSCULPT NEO is a two-in-one treatment intended for a wide range of clients who want to build muscle while also slimming down. Two types of energy are emitted into the muscle, each with a unique purpose. Radiofrequency energy raises the muscle’s temperature, like muscle temperature being raised during a warmup activity. Once a certain temperature is reached in the subcutaneous layer of fat (near the surface of the skin), fat cells are damaged and “melt” away from the body. High intensity electromagnetic energy is simultaneously emitted, causing muscle contractions that help new muscle fibers grow.

EMSCULPT NEO’s ability to reduce fat while building muscle is the most significant difference, but what else has changed?

Product Differences

Increased Muscle Mass

The EMSCULPT device increased muscle mass by 16% over a series of treatments, but EMSCULPT NEO builds off this accomplishment by increasing muscle growth by up to 25%. 9% may not seem like a lot of improvement, but the results speak for themselves.

Increased Fat Reduction

With the combination of radiofrequency heating and HIFEM+, it only takes 4 minutes for your body to be ready for fat reduction and muscle toning. Studies show that patients experienced, on average, 30% reduction in body fat with the EMSCULPT NEO.


The EMSCULPT solely used electromagnetic energy to cause intense muscle contractions and build muscles. The EMSCULPT NEO now uses electromagnetic energy for those muscle contractions along with radiofrequency which heats the muscle and causes fat to atrophy.

Treatment Areas

The EMSCULPT NEO has a wider range of applications than the original EMSCULPT machine, able to reduce fat and tone muscle for the abdomen, buttocks, thighs and calves, and arms. Depending on your specific goals, EMSCULPT NEO can help you achieve your ideal results.

Treatment Schedule

EMSCULPT and EMSCULPT NEO have similar treatment programs: 30-minute treatments with a minimum of four sessions. The big difference is that EMSCULPT required treatment every 2-3 days while EMSCULPT NEO treatments are only conducted once a week for 4 weeks, which saves the client a lot of time.

Laser Skin & Wellness is now offering the EMSCULPT NEO at our Palm Beach Gardens office. Schedule a consultation online or call our office at 561-641-9490 to see what this unbelievable treatment can do for you.

Are you bothered by the appearance of acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, or lax skin? If so, you may be able to benefit from skin resurfacing treatments. It is a non-surgical treatment to help rejuvenate the skin for a more youthful-looking complexion. There are several different treatment options when it comes to skin resurfacing, with plasma and laser treatments the two most popular. Read on to learn more about the differences between these treatments and which one is right for you.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing uses laser energy to carefully remove layers of the skin. Once the topmost layers of damaged skin are removed, new cells can form, resulting in smoother, tighter skin. At Laser Skin & Wellness, we offer the Fractional Laser Treatment to treat uneven skin texture, scarring, lines, and large pores.

During treatment, hundreds of micro-beams create deep micro-columns of thermal tissue damage, causing a controlled wound. This trauma to the skin is what creates natural collagen, resulting in a more youthful-looking complexion. Following treatment, the skin will be red and swollen, and some areas may be bandaged. Be sure to follow your provider’s aftercare instructions for optimal results.

Opus Plasma Resurfacing

Plasma skin resurfacing uses high-frequency unipolar radiofrequency energy to create tiny channels in the skin and jumpstart its natural collagen production through a wound-healing response. At our office, we offer the Opus Plasma treatment for skin resurfacing to address acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, dullness and uneven texture, and pigmentation. Opus Plasma can be used on many areas of the face and neck, including sensitive areas such as around the eyes.

Because of Opus Plasma’s state-of-the-art technology and approach, patients experience drastically less downtime than other laser treatments. You can expect about one to two days of redness and swelling, but you can generally return to your regular schedule immediately after treatment.

Which Skin Resurfacing Treatment is Right for You?

Overall, the treatment option that is right for you will depend on your individual skin type, skincare goals, and lifestyle. Your first step will be to schedule a consultation appointment with one of our skilled estheticians to determine which laser treatment is right for your individual goals. We will create a personalized treatment plan to help you make your skin goals a reality.

Summer is right around the corner, which means now is a great time to take steps toward a slimmer, healthier you. At Laser Skin & Wellness, we use the latest medical treatments to help our patients achieve their personal weight loss goals and maintain a healthy weight long-term. We offer a selection of proven treatments that will meet your individual needs and lifestyle for successful results. Read on to learn more about our programs, as well as one of our most popular options called Semaglutide.

Diet Programs

Have you tried just about every weight loss plan or program out there, but just can’t seem to shed the pounds, or keep the pounds off once you’ve lost them? Many weight loss plans on the market are not created for long-term results, so patients find themselves gaining back all of the weight they lost once they stop following the diet plan. At our office, we take a different approach to ensure you enjoy your results long-term. We create customized diet plans which include personalized menu plans, healthy eating, and one-on-one nutritional counseling to help make your goals a reality.

MIC-B Injections

Are you in need of a metabolism pick-me-up to boost your weight loss? MIC B12 injections are a combination of all of the B vitamins and three individual components designed to help accelerate weight loss: Methionine, Inositol and Choline. It also includes Vitamin C, L-Arginine and L-Carnitine. These injections can rev up your metabolism, minimizing fatty deposits. Some patients are able to lose a little bit of weight doing these injections every week! We call it the “Power Shot”!


Semaglutide is a very popular weight loss medication available at our practice. This medication supports healthy weight loss and is part of our overall weight loss program, which is guided by our experienced medical professionals. When paired with a reduced-calorie diet and regular exercise, Semaglutide can help you reach your weight loss goals.

This medication is administered through a weekly injection, and treatments occur over the course of 6-16 weeks. It mimics a hormone in your body that regulates appetite, which makes it easier to follow a reduced-calorie diet. This allows for safe, gradual weight loss that you can maintain.

Semaglutide vs Liraglutide for Weight Loss

If you have researched weight loss treatments, you may have come across Liraglutide. This medication slows gastric emptying and increases satiety after eating, which may help some lose weight. Compared to Semaglutide, however, this treatment was not as effective. Studies show that individuals that took Semaglutide paired with diet and exercise saw a 9.4% greater average loss in baseline weight compared to those on Liraglutide. Because of this, we recommend Semaglutide to our patients for optimal results.

If you are interested in learning more about our weight loss programs or Semaglutide, give Laser Skin & Wellness a call today at 561-641-9490 or contact us online. Your first step will be to schedule a consultation appointment at our Lake Worth or Palm Beach Gardens office to determine which treatment is right for you.

By Linda Kiley, MD

We all know that we live in a country with an obesity epidemic.  Almost ¾ of Americans are overweight, and 40 percent are obese.  Nearly one-fifth of Americans are severely overweight.  There is no end to diet books, diet programs, fad diets, and ads for unbelievable weight-loss pills, the weight loss industry is a multi billion dollar industry. With so many people overweight, it’s not surprising to see this.  We know based on data that being overweight increases risk for diabetes, heart disease, chronic pain, and joint replacement surgery. Most of us really want to be healthy and feel well. Many of us will make an attempt to lose weight at some point, if only to look better at a class reunion, wedding, or other special occasion. The problem with most weight loss programs is that they provide a temporary solution to a long term problem.

Understanding nutrition, metabolism, activity level and genetics each play an important role in our health and our tendency to gain weight, we still need to find a workable answer to achieving optimal health and a healthy weight. The best question to ask is: “How do I change my life so that I don’t feel deprived, but am happy, healthy and satisfied with how I look and feel?”

Childhood Obesity

Although childhood obesity has become epidemic, most children during and shortly after puberty tend to be thinner and more muscular during that time, but gradually shift towards gaining weight in adulthood. Some of us are born with metabolisms that predispose us to obesity because our ancestors survived based on their ability to retain fat during times of low food availability. Sometimes, despite tremendous effort at dietary restriction and exercise, we see little to no change on the scale.

Understanding Obesity

Understanding all of this, looking more closely at the complex interaction between our genes, our environment, and our nutrition, we have some answers. Finding the right nutritional balance and eating pattern for each individual is extremely important. More data has been produced looking at different eating patterns such as intermittent fasting with varying periods of eating and fasting based upon the individual, this has provided insight not only into weight control but also into longevity and the aging process. Achieving a proper balance is a key part of achieving a healthy weight and better health. Additionally, understanding the mechanisms taking place within each cell affecting energy production (cellular metabolism) has helped us to understand the bigger picture of metabolism in general. This has led to a different approach to weight loss. Diet drugs traditionally have been used to curb appetite and reduce intake but have had some potentially very negative physical side-effects and risks.  The question is, are there supplements, medications or other approaches that can help us achieve a proper weight without the significant risks of the more traditional diet drugs? And can our understanding of this help make the weight loss permanent?

Discovering Peptides

There has been much excitement in the past few years over the development of peptides to augment and promote health.  One of the first peptides discovered was insulin to treat diabetes.  With greater understanding of the effects of insulin and discovery of other peptides involved in digestion, metabolism, immune system function and cellular recovery, we have been able to find better ways to help our cells function better, boost metabolism and encourage safer weight loss. The discovery of liraglutide, semaglutide and related compounds has revolutionized the treatment of diabetes and more importantly, changed the face of weight management strategies.  Finding ways to reduce inflammation in the gut and optimize proper nutrient absorption has also been important in helping to achieve a healthy weight.

Weight Management

A weight management program is a good place to start when traditional “healthy diet and exercise” strategies have not achieved the desired results.  The most important thing to remember, though, is that a weight management program is not designed to allow for periodic temporary weight loss, or “yo-yo dieting”.  Wide fluctuations of weight are actually harder on the body than maintaining a steady weight.  Our goal needs to be to achieve the best level of health with the healthiest amount of body fat for each individual and maintain that permanently.

At Ultra Health & Wellness and Laser Skin & Wellness, we have designed programs to help achieve and maintain those goals of optimal health and proper body weight. Learn more by calling our office or filling out one of our online forms.

Are you bothered by mild signs of aging like stubborn lines and wrinkles or areas of sagging skin? If so, we have a great solution for you! Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive treatment created to tighten lax skin and soften lines and wrinkles on the face and body.

Morpheus8 offers many benefits, including:

  • Increases collagen production
  • Tightens and lifts lax skin
  • Softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Minimizes acne scarring
  • Fades stretch marks

Who Can Benefit?

The Morpheus8 treatment is a great treatment for both men and women! Aging doesn’t discriminate, and visible lines and lax skin can take a toll on self-esteem. If you are a healthy individual and would like to learn if this treatment is right for you, give us a call today to schedule a consultation.

How Does Morpheus8 Work?

This treatment utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy combined with microneedling to remodel the skin. Combining these technologies allows for deeper penetration than other microneedling devices, stimulating collagen production for skin tightening and lifting for a refreshed appearance.

During your treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied to clean skin to minimize discomfort. Then, a handheld device is moved across the skin to allow microneedles to create micro-wounds in the treatment areas. At the same time, the device will emit radiofrequency waves to penetrate the dermal layer. Treatment takes 40-60 minutes to complete depending on the number of treatment areas.

Is there Downtime Involved?

No! There is no downtime required following a Morpheus8 treatment which makes it such a popular procedure. You may experience some temporary and mild swelling and redness for about a week, but you can resume daily activities right away. Makeup can also be applied just a couple of days after treatment to camouflage redness. While healing we recommend avoiding direct sun exposure and keeping the area moisturized for ideal results.

Results will be seen a few days after treatment, and the skin’s look and feel will continue to improve as more collagen is created. Results will improve for up to 3-6 months. In order to maintain results, we recommend booking a treatment every 1-2 years.

Contact Us Today

Both men and women who wish to combat signs of aging without surgery and downtime can benefit from Morpheus8. To learn more about this treatment and to schedule a consultation appointment, contact Laser Skin & Wellness in Lake Worth and Palm Beach Gardens, FL today.

Remaining overweight or obese can have serious consequences for your health, with common co-morbid conditions including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Addressing these issues with diet and exercise alone can be challenging, even with the help of a professional. At Laser Skin and Wellness in Palm Beach Gardens, our doctors help patients effectively lose weight for improved health using prescription semaglutide. A semaglutide weight loss program is clinically proven to help patients lose more weight when paired with healthy diet and exercise.

What is Semaglutide?

Semalglutide is a prescription medication originally intended to help adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus control their blood sugar. It can also be used to help adults who are overweight or obese lose weight, especially if their excess weight is a contributing factor in a second health condition including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or type 2 diabetes. In any case, semalglutide is used alongside a healthy diet and exercise plan for improved weight management.

Who is a Good Candidate for Semaglutide?

Semalglutide weight loss programs may be good options for patients who are considered overweight (BMI higher than 27) or obese (BMI higher than 30) and have a comorbid condition such as hypertension (high blood pressure), type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol. However, this treatment is not recommended for those who have a history of tumors in the glands, a personal or family history of thyroid cancer, or diabetic ketoacidosis. Your doctor may also recommend a different treatment option if you have conditions including stomach or intestinal disorders, pancreatitis, kidney disease, or diabetic retinopathy. During your consultation, you should be prepared to discuss your health history and any medications or supplements you currently take. This will allow your doctor to determine whether semaglutide weight loss programs are suitable for you.

How Does a Semaglutide Weight Loss Program Work?

Prior to beginning your semalglutide weight loss program, you will be provided with a suitable reduced calorie diet plan and exercise routine with the help of our nutrition educators. As you follow this diet and exercise plan, you will be instructed to take semalglutide at gradually increasing doses. The initial dosing will be customized based on your starting weight. In our program, semalglutide is administered as a weekly injection, which you can be completed at home.

As you continue through the program, it is important to carefully monitor blood glucose if you have type 2 diabetes. In any case, patients should watch for signs of high or low blood sugar, which may be affected by stress, illness, exercise, alcohol consumption, or skipping meals. Symptoms include dizziness, irritability, or feeling very hungry in the case of low blood sugar. High blood sugar may cause frequent urination or increased thirst.

What Results Can I Expect From a Semaglutide Weight Loss Program?

Clinical trials have found enhanced weight loss for overweight and obese patients pairing semaglutide with their diet and exercise habits compared to control groups. Patients who took semaglutide in addition to following a reduced calorie diet and completing regular exercise lost more weight and had greater success maintaining their weight loss. They also improved co-morbid health concerns as they lost weight.

If you fill in your brows or wear mascara daily, you understand how tedious and time consuming this can be. At Laser Skin and Wellness, we offer two popular options that allow you to enjoy the look of makeup without daily application: microblading and lash extensions. These procedures offer natural-looking results that are long-lasting, saving you time in your daily routine while boosting your confidence from the moment you wake up.

What is Microblading?

Microblading is a specialized technique of cosmetic tattooing. The procedure involves using a pen with super-fine needles to deposit pigment into the skin in brush stokes mimicking the look of individual hairs. This creates definition in the eyebrows for a more flattering look that still appears natural.

The Microblading Procedure

At Laser Skin & Wellness, our microblading services are performed by Korina. Prior to your treatment, Korina will carefully match an ink color to suit your skin tone and desired results. An outline of the brow is then drawn to guide the treatment. Once you and your microblading specialist are satisfied with the outline, numbing cream is applied to keep you comfortable during the treatment. The microblading procedure can then begin using the microblading pen and ink. Korina or your microblading specialist will carefully create small, hair-like strokes for a natural effect. Through this technique, the ink is deposited in superficial layers of the skin. This means that microblading offers semi-permanent results, lasting 1-2 years.

What are Lash Extensions?

Lash extensions are false eyelashes that are individually applied using a professional-quality adhesive glue. This makes them somewhat similar to traditional false eyelashes, but much longer lasting. Lash extensions provide a significant improvement in the length and fullness of the lashes while remaining lightweight and comfortable. At Laser Skin and Wellness, this service is provided by Korina, our Eyelash Extension Specialist. Korina is very experienced in applying eyelash extensions and offers training to others in the procedure. She customizes results so you can enjoy a range of looks, from a soft and natural look to more dramatic and glamorous results.

Lash Extension Application

Prior to your lash extension appointment, you should avoid putting on any makeup or oily skin care products such as a heavier eye cream. It is also recommended that you avoid curling your eyelashes on the day of your appointment. On average, a lash extension application takes about one to two hours to complete. Korina will consult with you about your desired results and consider your eye shape and other factors while planning your eyelash extensions. The lashes are then individually applied to the natural lashes and secured with an adhesive. Lash extension applications are not painful whatsoever.

After your lash extensions have been applied, Korina will advise you to avoid getting the lashes wet for 24 hours. She will teach you how to clean and comb the lashes out routinely. Lash extensions are not permanent, because the natural lashes will continue to grow out and shed periodically. You can schedule routine refill appointment to maintain your results. Most people schedule their appointment for about every two to three weeks although some extensions will hold for up to six weeks.
