The three R’s are the basis of cosmetic medical enhancement:

Relax – Wrinkles are often the result of the life-long use of facial muscles.  By relaxing these muscles wrinkles are significantly reduced or eliminated.

Restore – Over time we lose volume in our face due to the loss of facial fat and collagen and the weakening of facial support structures. This leads to a hollow, drooping appearance. Through tightening of these structures, and replacement of volume, a youthful fullness and lift can be achieved without surgery.

Renew – Over the years the effect of sun and weather, and the slowing of skin turnover due to advancing age leads to age spots and imperfections, dull complexion, scars and unevenness of tone.  Skin texture, tone and vitality can be markedly improved through the use of laser and light-based technologies.

Dr. Peirson personally administers Botox® and fillers at ArtMed Clinic. As the medical director of ArtMed, and its senior injector, she works diligently to ensure quality of care. Safety is exceedingly important to her, and she uses industry leading techniques and products to insure optimal results. Dr. Peirson’s entire focus is on the clinical services offered at ArtMed. She leads the ArtMed medical team and as such oversees the treatments performed by the nurses on staff.
