Frequently Asked Questions

1.) How do you determine what treatment I will need? Dr. Ari provides a complimentary consultation in which he will perform a facial examination to evaluate the presence of lines and wrinkles and/or the overall texture of your skin. He will assess any wrinkles in question to see if they are the result of muscle activity or volume loss or something else to determine your treatment  plan. He will also assess any other skin problems to determine if any skincare products can be of help.
