Injectable Services


One of the most highly used dermal fillers available, this filler is ideal for reducing fine lines around the lips, corner of the mouth and marionette line above the lips. Additionally, it is Kristen’s go-to for tear trough correction. Results usually last from six to eighteen months.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

The most popular, FDA-approved injectable, BOTOX® Cosmetic softens the look of wrinkles and facial lines. Most commonly used on forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, frown lines and the horizontal lines between the eyebrows. Results last for three to six months.


An advanced technique that involves the injection of multiple microdroplets of neurotoxin into the dermis (not the muscle) which works to decrease sebaceous and sweat gland activity, improve the skin texture, diminished fine lines and wrinkles, and give an overall “shrink wrap” effect the area treated. It is ideal for the face, neck, and décolleté.


Over 1 million men have used BOTOX® for subtle, natural-looking aging! We offer this injectable for men and commonly treat the forehead, crow’s feet, frown lines and sunken eyebrow areas. BOTOX® can also be used for hyperhidrosis to manage excessive sweating.


Used for wrinkle prevention, Dysport® creates a natural look of smoother lines on the face, diminishing wrinkles. Results last for three to six months.


Used to treat moderate to severe fat below the chin, KYBELLA® breaks down the absorption of dietary fat. The destruction of fat cells through the injection across two or three treatments performed six weeks apart eliminates the “double chin”. KYBELLA® can also be used for body sculpting.


The Restylane® collection of FDA-approved dermal fillers restores symmetry to the lips and giving natural fullness while promoting collagen production and skin elasticity. We offer Restylane® Silk, Refyne®, Defyne® and Lyft®.


The JUVÉDERM® collection of FDA-approved fillers targets cheeks, lips, lines and wrinkles. We offer JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, VOLBELLA® XC, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC and JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC.

Sculptra® Aesthetic

Sculptra® Aesthetic replaces lost collagen in the face from aging. This FDA-approved injectable is the only one of its kind that reduces facial wrinkles or folds AND rebuilding collagen strands over time. Results that can last up to two years.


This neurotoxin helps clients achieve a peaceful, resting look by reducing the appearance of contraction-related wrinkles. FDA-approved and fast-acting, XEOMIN® slows the formation of wrinkles, smoothing other lines with results achieved within a couple of days.


RADIESSE® is the only FDA-approved dermal filler for BOTH the face and hands. This volumizing filler smooths facial wrinkles and correct the loss of volume on the back of hands. Results typically last between nine and 15 months.

Skin Services

AQUAGOLD® fine touch™

The AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ treatment is pain-free and takes under 30 minutes with no downtime or recovery needed. With the same benefits of microneedling, AQUAGOLD® uses patented micro-channeling technology using 24-karat gold needles to evenly distribute cosmetic injectables. AQUAGOLD® stimulates collagen production and diminishes signs of aging, skin damage, loss of volume, uneven tone or texture, acne scars or skin rejuvenation in large areas.

Chemical Peels

We offer a variety of chemical peels at Elite Medical. From very mild, blended acid peels with no down time that not only leave you with a dewy complexion, but keep people guessing about why you look so refreshed, to very deep peels using proprietary compounded formulas. The heavier peels require 5-7 days of social downtime. Our peels are safe for all skin types and tones.

Laser Treatments: IPL Photofacial

The Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Treatment uses broad spectrum light technology for skin restoration in a gentle, non-invasive procedure. IPL treatments reduce the appearance of redness, facial veins, uneven texture, fine lines and wrinkles and discoloration from age or sun spots, acne scars, rosacea or melasma. Photofacials also promote increased collagen production for firmer, youthful skin.


Using the only FDA approved microneedling device on the market, SkinPen, this treatment is also known as collagen induction therapy. This procedure increases collagen formation to treat of stretch marks, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling can be performed with or without PRP. The number of treatments depends on your skin’s condition and goals with most, significant results occurring four to six weeks after. Our technology is the most efficient microneedling tool on the market.

PDO Threads

This non-surgical face lift delivers the results you seek for your neck and jawline in an FDA-approved injectable format. PDO sutures, called monofilament threads, are resorbable and safe materials that help produce collagen. Threads are frequently used to treat the cheeks, neck, jawline, forehead, lips, knees, décolleté, and abdomen. A PDO Threads procedure takes about 15-30 minutes and can last up to two years.


DermalInfusion offers a pain-free, customizable treatment plan for all skin concerns and conditions. The treatment’s three-in-one technology exfoliates the skin, extracts dermal impurities and infuses the skin with a serum tailored for each patient. The diamond tip exfoliates with precision timed serum infusion, maximizing the nutrient benefit to the skin.

Skin Resurfacing

We use the Venus Viva to reduce the signs of aging and skin damage. Gentle and safe for all skin types, the Venus Viva utilizes a radiofrequency for deep layers of skin penetration without damaging the surface. Resurfacing can be performed anywhere on the body and treats skin pigmentation issues such as uneven skin tone and texture, fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, sun and age spots, scarring, stretch marks and enlarged pores. Most clients require between three to six treatments that can take up to an hour, depending upon the area(s) being treated.

Localized Cryotherapy

Elite Medical offers liquid nitrogen cryotherapy and carbon dioxide cryotherapy. Treatment can be used to for Actinic Keratosis (pre-cancers), fade sun spots, tighten damaged skin, disrupt skin tags, lighten age spots, reduce pore size and promote cellular regeneration.

B12 or Super MICC Injections

For those with a B12 deficiency or others looking to lose weight naturally, try B12 Injections, known to increase energy and stamina while supporting better sleep and nerve function. During our consultation, we will define the best frequency for you based on a blood test and health history.

Liquivida Nutrient IV Therapies

Established patients are eligible for Liquivida nutrient IV therapy as an adjunctive treatment option for many health conditions by quickly delivering a customized blend of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants intravenously. We offer eight, Liquivida complexes uniquely formulated to rehydrate your body, boost your immune system and support your lifestyle.
