A specialized field of dermatology that focuses on procedures that improve appearance of the skin.
Plump, restore & enhance
As we age, multiple factors can result in the loss of our youthful look. Dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, and Versa are all hyaluronic acid products used to create fullness and a more youthful appearance. It can be injected into areas of volume loss such as the cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and lips for a natural look.
Most of these products can last 6 months to 2 years depending on where the filler is injected and how much product is used.
During your consultation, Dr. McDaniel will evaluate the main areas of concern and will recommend a customized treatment plan for you

Botox & Dysport
Botox and Dysport are injectable neuromodulators to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. Botox and Dysport are both used by men and women to treat stubborn frown lines—between the eyebrows, crow’s feet and other fine lines on the forehead and the lips –that tend to accumulate over time as a result of years of smiling and squinting.
By minimizing the contractions and relaxing the underlying muscles of the face, patients see noticeable results in their treatment with very little downtime.
Botox and Dysport are excellent, non-surgical option that reduces the effects of aging and helps regain a more youthful appearance. Dr. McDaniel is an advocate of natural looking results.
During a typical consultation, she evaluates which areas need to be treated based on your facial expressions and lines created. Full correction after your treatment occurs in 14 days and results typically last 3-4 months. There is no real downtime associated with a Botox treatment, although you may see slight redness at the injection site immediately after treatment that diminishes very quickly.
Neuromodulatory toxins are priced based on the number of units used on the individual, and how much you will require is based on the areas you need treated and overall severity of wrinkles.
Nonsurgical Facial Lift
Facial contouring and cosmetic techniques have come improved and come a long way in recent years. Silhouette InstaLift is no exception.
While wrinkles, brown spots and lost volume can be treated with existing procedures, until now there has been no minimally invasive way to lift the deeper layers of mid-facial skin, one of the major contributors to an aged and tired appearance.
Silhouette InstaLift is the only treatment with a unique dual action that adds volume for a natural look AND re-positions the skin by lifting sagging areas of the mid-face.
Silhouette InstaLift is a resorbable suspension suture with bidirectional cones. Each cone has a smooth 360º surface, which immediately provides an anchoring point in the subcutaneous tissue. Silhouette InstaLift is made from Polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), a well-known biomedical co-polymer that is generally well-tolerated in the body. Once implanted, Silhouette InstaLift TM provides mechanical fixation of the tissue until collagen production and subsequent encapsulation of the suture in collagen takes place, which is the start of the biological fixation. This action continues over time and helps to increase the volume and restore shapeliness to the face gradually and naturally.
Your provider will access and discuss if this minimally invasive technique is suitable for you and will create a customized treatment plan to achieve your desired results.
Baseline procedure images are taken prior to the procedure and a topical aesthetic is then applied to your mid-face. During the procedure, the provider will use sutures with bidirectional cones to re-position and elevate the skin on your face. The in-office procedure can typically be completed in approximately 45 minutes. Results are seen immediately with minimal recovery time, although you may experience an inflammatory process with minor pain, swelling, and bruising. Over time the sutures will naturally be absorbed by your body, while stimulating the production of collagen.
