The textures and thickness of our skin on different parts of the body vary greatly. Our necks have soft, supple skin that loosens and wrinkles over time. If you look in the mirror and see that dreaded “turkey neck,” consult Dr. Garries for an individualized skincare regimen that will enhance the appearance of your neck. It will become a part of your anti-aging program that is as important as your facial routine.
Our sought-after chemical peels have become the cornerstone of our practice. This unique peel leaves skin feeling smooth and looking particularly clear and dewy but more importantly, there is limited down time. Our “Very Pretty Skin Peel®” was formulated to deeply peel the most sensitive and darkest of African American skin (Fitzpatrick VI) to the lightest of Caucasian skin (Fitzpatrick I).
Premium exfoliation begins in two days and finishes in five. Moreover, another advantage of our peel is that you do not need to prep the skin beforehand and you do not need to complete a series. “The Very Pretty Skin®” chemical peels are our best-sellers, particularly for models and entertainers who have to bare it all on the runway or for camera close-ups. It is a 15-minute application process that will get you red carpet ready in a week! This peel is for the face and is modified for the entire body.
Dermal Fillers and Injectables
To replace lost volume and give more youthfulness to the face or to smooth out those nasal labial folds and wrinkles, dermal fillers such as Restylane®, Perlane®, Juvederm®, Voluma XC®, Radiesse®, and Sculptra® are used.
Dr. Garries injects the filler under the skin to fill and contour the face, giving it a porcelain-like smoothness. The results are highly dependent on the experience and expertise of the one performing the procedure. We pride ourselves on giving you the most natural look and consider each patient as their own distinctive canvas.
Botox® and Dysport® are injectables but work differently than fillers. They are characterized as muscle relaxers. For those pesky frown lines, these injectables are a sure way to “decrease the crease.” If the crease is located between your eyebrows, it’s called the glabella frown line. Lines across your forehead? They are called frontalis lines.
The term “crow’s feet” has become ubiquitous in the anti-aging dialogue. They are wrinkles located in the outer corners of the eyes. A less familiar term is “bunny lines”. These are wrinkles located on the upper bridge of the nose and can also be addressed with injectables. The injections only take a few minutes and there is little to no bruising. The effects last for 3-4 months.
Non-Surgical Nose Enhancement
For many of us, if we could choose one thing to change about our face, it would be our nose. However, nose jobs are costly and surgery is stressful. Dr. Garries has a non-surgical solution : soft tissue fillers. We can smooth out the hump, bump or indentation in your nose. We can also lift the tip so that it projects slightly upward. Additionally, if your nose is too wide, we can decrease its broadness. The non-surgical nose by Dr. Garries takes only fifteen minutes. It is an in-office procedure and there is minimal bruising and swelling. Results can last up to six months to a year, depending on the filler used.

Torn Earlobe Repair
Whether you have a torn earlobe as a result of wearing earrings that are too heavy or a child pulled the hoop in your ear, Dr. Garries can surgically repair your slit or completely torn earlobe. During this procedure, she can also pierce your ears. Most repairs take 45 minutes and you can walk out wearing your favorite pair of pearl or diamond earrings!
