We’re focused on helping our patients restore their youth and beauty with our full menu of advanced aesthetic and injectable treatments. Our personalized approach allows our doctors to discuss your needs and deliver the results you deserve.

As we age, our body produces less collagen, which leads to wrinkles and volume loss. At Gentera, we offer a full menu of luxurious aesthetic and injectable treatments for the health and beauty of our patients. We can help restore your smooth, youthful appearance through the use of injectable treatments.
We offer a range of injectables that include dermal fillers, neuromodulators such as Botox, and Dysport.
BOTOX & DYSPORT
Botox® is a common procedure using Botulinum Toxin which was developed to treat the visual signs of aging by reducing or removing wrinkles. The procedure is considered a safe, effective way of treating aging skin. Common areas for Botox; injections include deep wrinkles or “worry lines” on the forehead, between the eyebrows, “laugh lines” around the mouth, and “crows feet” on the outer corner of the eyes. Botox and Dysport have proven to be the best non-surgical form of facial rejuvenation and is capable of producing phenomenal improvements in your appearance.
Both of the branded medical products contain onabotulinumtoxina, a powerful natural purified protein with proven effectiveness in removing wrinkles by injecting into designated areas to improve the facial skin. This simple procedure serves as a temporary fix (usually lasting 3-6 months) but is a simple procedure that can generally be done in an hour or less. These two injectables paralyze muscle activity that causes wrinkles, giving a flattened and relaxed look to the skin. You’ll leave Gentera with a more youthful appearance.
At Gentera, we only utilize the highest quality dermal fillers which produce results ranging from 6 months to 2 years. Dermal fillers help to augment and shape thin lips (making them appear plump and supple), soften your appearance by diminishing facial creases, and eradicate wrinkles and recessed scars.
With age, our bodies lose subcutaneous fats, which serve as a buffer between facial muscles and the skin. Stretching also occurs in all areas of the skin and body, but as the skin of your face stretches, the process only amplifies the volume loss due to diminishing subcutaneous fats. Dermal fillers provide a highly efficacious solution to this problem. Gentera's doctors take a collaborative approach with their patients to devise a plan of action to enhance their natural look.
Get active about scars, wrinkles and other signs of maturation to maintain your beauty as you gain the wisdom of age. Reinvigorate your skin and reap the benefits of looking and feeling your very best.
The numerous benefits of dermal fillers include immediate results and little or no recovery time after the procedure. Experience minimal discomfort during the largely pain-free process.
We pride ourselves on staying at the forefront of innovations in non-surgical procedures, which often include cutting-edge laser and light treatments. We offer a wide variety of non-invasive treatments for a number of skin concerns, including reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, body contouring, reducing the signs of age, and improving the overall tone and texture of the skin.
If your skin has lost shape, become less smooth, and is experiencing low blood flow, then a Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift may be for you. This technique may correct nature’s small errors and reduce the effects of time with a procedure less strenuous and invasive than a facelift or other cosmetic enhancement operations.
Who should consider a Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift?
Some individuals seeking the results of a traditional facelift prefer less invasive solutions to their aesthetic enhancement needs. Platelet-Rich Plasma treatments are non-surgical and use growth factors extracted from the patient's own blood. This procedure offers a simpler and more cost-effective alternative to cosmetic plastic surgery.
Why Platelet Rich Plasma, and how does it work?
This procedure promotes collagen synthesis, which accelerates skin renewal and cell growth. Your tissue regenerates, as a result, rendering your skin firmer and more youthful in the process. During this procedure, a small amount of your blood is extracted and placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge is spun at high intervals in order to separate the platelets and plasma from other components of the blood. The isolated platelets, which contain growth factors that promote growth and healing will then be re-concentrated into blood plasma and injected with a small needle into the designated areas of the face that require shaping and support. As a result, the face should appear clearer, smoother, and younger.

CO2 LASER RESURFACING
Laser skin resurfacing represents one of the most significant breakthroughs in the realm of aesthetic anti-aging offering a minimally-invasive solution to retexture the skin.
Why CO2 Laser Resurfacing?
Fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) laser skin resurfacing, also known as ablative fractional skin resurfacing, works by delivering short, powerful, pulsed light energy to remove very thin layers of skin. By gradually eliminating layers of cells, the CO2 laser offers a powerful yet targeted way to reduce wrinkles, sun damage, fine lines, discontinuity in pigmentation, and scars. Just one targeted treatment may produce results that last years. The entire procedure, from start to finish, typically takes about one hour to perform, depending on the size of the treatment area.
CO2 laser resurfacing also offers the added value of stimulating new collagen production and growth. Collagen is an important protein found in your skin’s connective tissue that aids in giving your skin a smooth and supple appearance. As new collagen is produced, making shin health and appearance should continue to improve post-procedure.
WHAT IS ULTHERAPY?
Ultherapy is a new non-surgical, non-invasive procedure for the face, neck, and chest that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin.
The FDA-cleared device used in the procedure employs the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift—without disturbing the surface of the skin.
The "See" and "Treat"
Ultrasound In some ways, Ultherapy is just like an ultrasound imaging procedure that an expectant mother may receive. A smooth handpiece is placed on your skin, and an image of the tissue beneath is projected on a screen. This allows your practitioner to “see” where to treat your skin. But here’s the difference: With Ultherapy, that same handpiece is also used to deliver tiny deposits of focused ultrasound energy at just the right depth below the skin. For facial procedures, this is the same foundational layer typically addressed in a surgical facelift.
The Lift You’re Looking For
Your skin’s response to this energy is to recondition tired skin by stimulating the growth of fresh, new collagen. The result is a tightening and gradual lifting or shifting of the skin back into a more youthful position and form-fitting shape.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Natural. Non-Invasive. No Downtime. An Ultherapy procedure typically takes between 30 and 60 minutes, but will time depend on the treatment plan determined by your practitioner. There are no special aftercare requirements, and you can resume your normal activities immediately.
Before your Procedure
No preparation is required before your Ultherapy procedure, although your practitioner may recommend that comfort measures such as over-the-counter or prescribed medication be taken prior to treatment.
During your Procedure
After cleansing the skin and identifying the specific areas to be treated, an ultrasound gel is applied, and the smooth handpiece is placed upon your skin. The focused ultrasound energy bypasses the surface of your skin and is delivered to pre-designated depths within the tissue below to stimulate collagen growth.
Comfort levels vary from patient to patient and can depend on the area treated. Your practitioner will discuss options for making the experience as pleasant as possible. The sensation you experience is associated with the focused ultrasound energy as it is delivered below the surface of the skin. It is noticeable only while the energy is being delivered, and patients typically leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come.
After your Procedure
You are able to return to your normal activities right away, and there are no special measures you need to take. Your skin may appear flushed immediately after the ultrasound treatment, but any redness should disappear within a few hours. It is not uncommon to experience slight swelling for a few days or tingling/tenderness to the touch for a few weeks following the procedure, but these are typically mild and temporary in nature. There is the possibility for other less common post-procedural effects, such as temporary small areas of bruising or numbness, and other rare effects which your physician will review with you.
Rejuven8 is an innovative non-surgical procedure that instantly lifts slack skin on the face, neck, and body using absorbable threads. The procedure is ideal for those who need a minimal to moderate rejuvenation and who prefer a non-surgical alternative. In addition to the face and upper neck, the threadlift can be used on the body, including lifting sagging skin on the upper arms, stomach, thighs, and knee area.
What Rejuven8 does is to create a supportive structure to restore the V-shape of the face, which is inverted with age, or to lift and reposition the tissues, using Novathreads. These threads are especially effective in the lower third of the face, which may be challenging to treat with injectables and Botox®.
What are Novathreads?
The Rejuven8 procedure utilizes Novathreads, which are synthetic absorbable surgical sutures inserted using a pre-loaded hypodermic needle. The sutures are completely absorbed within 4-6 months and the procedure does not leave scar tissue.
However, during that time before the sutures are absorbed, the skin undergoes a “selective inflammatory response, which boosts collagen, promoting the own body’s ability to heal for a longer lasting result.
