Youthful skin starts within
Sculptra® is a unique collagen volume stimulating treatment, ideal for sagging, wrinkled or aging skin and produces a remarkable non-surgical facial filling. As we age, we lose collagen and our faces 'deflate'. Folds, wrinkles and hollowness appear on our faces. Unlike other products that temporarily correct skin imperfections, Sculptra naturally stimulates the body to produce its own collagen, resulting in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.
Sculptra can last up to 2 years, though some patients have experienced results lasting much longer. Unlike surgical procedures, there is none of the downtime and as we continue to age, adjustments are easily made at any time. If you are in your 30's, it is the ideal time to begin Sculptra as a preventative strategy and can be done a little at a time.
..very pleased with the results. The look is very natural and the onset of the enhancement was very gradual so nobody really noticed I'd had “work done”. Love the look, love the result...

Botox® reduces moderate to severe lines between the brows, crow's feet and forehead area. Botox has also been effectively used in treating excessive perspiration disorders and migraine headaches. Botox is injected to prevent muscle contraction, thus allowing the skin to take on a smoother appearance in the treated areas. Results often last for 3 - 4 months.
Dysport temporarily immobilizes the muscles you use to frown, Dysport can smooth out those lines, restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face. Because you will be physically unable to frown after treatment, you may even lose the urge to frown. Results last up to 4 months.
A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun.
Alpha-hydroxy acid or another mild acid is used to penetrate only the outer layer of skin to gently exfoliate it. The treatment is used to improve the appearance of mild skin discoloration and rough skin as well as to refresh the face, neck, chest or hands.
Superficial peels require one to seven days to heal. Treated skin will initially be red and may scale. Lotion or cream should be applied until the skin heals, followed by daily use of sunscreen.
Microdermabrasion treatments use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage and stretch marks. At Cantrell MD we utilize a crystal-free microdermabrasion.

Skin Resurfacing performed with optimized lasers offers single treatment results that are truly remarkable. Years of sun damage, acne scars, enlarged pores, and environmental damage are eliminated along with fine wrinkles and lines. Certain studies have also shown that laser resurfacing can reduce the incidences of skin cancer. It is the most effective treatment for repairing and rejuvenating your skin. A true anti-aging treatment.
Laser Peels are the modern alternative to the photo-facial. Using a single optimized wavelength of light in a coherent beam, we are able to selectively remove the very top layer of dead and damaged skin tissues leaving fresh, rejuvenated skin in its place. At the same time, the laser's energy is super stimulating new collagen growth that will continue to develop months after treatment. You'll notice your skin tightening within hours and improved texture, tone and complexion with in days. This procedure is quick and allows you to return to work immediately afterwards.
Laser vein therapy can treat 'broken' capillaries, rosacea and unsightly purple veins. Many people don't realize the continued redness or 'flush' they've acquired in midlife is the result of thousands of inflamed or enlarged capillaries that can't be seen with the unaided eye. Using specialized optics, Dr. Cantrell images these capillaries for treatment with a laser specifically chosen for its effectiveness. Laser is the only known treatment for those suffering from rosacea and rosacea-like symptoms. Though we suggest annual touch-ups, we've had patients with dramatic results lasting years. Unsightly purple veins are also eliminated with a single treatment.
Sun/Age spots and Pigmentation when treated properly will crust over, fall off and be eliminated in just a few weeks after a single treatment.
What is Bio Identical Hormone Replacement?
Dr. Cantrell has over ten years of experience in the use of hormone replacement therapy. A complimentary consultation will determine if you are a good candidate for replacement of the hormones we lose as we age. Loss of hormones causes many of the symptoms of aging. We can replace hormones using natural hormones identical to those in your body. Our goal is to replace deficient hormones to levels of a healthy 30-year old, thereby increasing your quality of life.
Patients have seen improvements in the following areas after beginning treatment:
Insomnia or difficulty sleeping, memory loss and forgetfulness, restored fertility and libido, reduced aches and pains with increased stamina, reduction in chronic pain, fatigue, depression, mood swings, and even night sweats and hot flashes. Improved ability to cope with stress, reduced sensitivity to stress or in many cases a significant reduction in perceived stress levels.
Laser hair removal involves using an FDA approved class 4 laser to safely remove unwanted hair from any area of the body. Our technology is gentle and effective on most hair and all skin types.
At Cantrell MD we utilize 2 different lasers to treat hair. They safely treat the lightest to the darkest skin, including tanned and African American skin. Our lasers are real lasers, not the less effective IPL's, and can more comfortably remove hair in less than half the treatments required by an IPL. You've seen the same laser we use on "Keeping up with the Kardashians".
Some Treatment Information
Many people that experience blackhead, pimples and zits along with some forms of acne will see a dermatologist when in fact they could be suffering from folliculitis, (ingrown hairs). As anyone that has studied Dermatology knows, this can also lead to hper-pigmentation or brown spots on your face and neck. This condition is very common in men. Permanent hair removal can eliminate these issues by eliminating the stubble of facial hair that can cause it. If you are currently threading or waxing such as brazilian wax, bikini wax or upper lip, our treatments are so comfortable you'll wonder why you ever went through such repeated agony. Never having to worry about shaving underarm hair again or wondering about your arm pits in that new sun dress is a marvel of modern medicine. Chest hair and that impossible to reach back hair can be reduced to a level you are comfortable with in just a few treatments or completely removed with a package of treatments.
Mesotherapy is a safe, non-surgical technique for reducing fat and cellulite from nearly any area on the body. It is simply the process of placing tiny, virtually painless injections under the skin. Mesotherapy eliminates cellulite by breaking down the dimpling, producing a smooth contour.
Mesotherapy using Lipodissolve offers minimal downtime, and can generally be administered in single or multiple sessions, 2 – 6 weeks apart to permanently dissolve away unwanted fat.
Combined with a weight loss program, Mesotherapy offers body contouring and sculpting. Patients may not notice a difference on the scale but rather a difference in inches. Clothes will fit better and skin will appear smoother and tighter. Most patients can lose up to four inches in the treated areas.
Mesotherapy has been used to treat chin, neck, and jowl fat successfully years before Kybella was patented.
Dr. Cantrell will determine the best therapy or combination of therapies for your specific situation. The laser is always the first choice because the results are immediate and more veins can be treated in a single session. However, not all veins are ideally suited to laser therapy and may be better treated with sclerotherapy. This consists of injecting a small amount of medicine into the vein causing the vein to collapse over time and disappear.
We typically see effective results in over 98% of the veins treated during a single session. If you are a person who is prone to developing these superficial veins, you may need annual touch-ups to maintain your vein free look. Otherwise, many people can go years without further treatment.
All of our programs are individually tailored to meet both short-term weight loss targets and establish long-term solutions that will keep weight off and improve overall health. Weekly monitoring assures continuous progress at a sustainable and medically safe pace. Each visit is done one-on-one with Dr. Cantrell and adjusted dependent on your progress. On our program you are still able to eat regular foods, that means no special supplements, protein bars or shakes!
