- Botox®
At Marin Aesthetica, all Botox® Cosmetic injections are performed meticulously and exclusively for you by Dr. Huang, Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon with over 18 years of experience successfully treating thousands of women. Dr. Huang uses only Botox® cosmetic by Allergan. It is the one with an established safety profile and FDA-approval to reduce your moderate to severe glabellar (scowl) lines through relaxation of the corrugator muscles as well as your crows feet.

You will be asked to refrain from taking any aspirin, motrin/advil, vit E, and other blood thinners for a week prior to your treatment. Dr. Huang will carefully analyze your unique clinical and anatomical features and will perform your treatment to give you the safest, most natural result. The office treatment takes about 20 minutes. There’s typically minimal discomfort and no downtime. Exercise may be resumed the following day. The smoothening effects of the medication begin 3-7 days afterwards. Your maintenence appointments occur 2 to 3 times in a year.

- Skin-smoothening Peels
At Marin Aesthetica, medical-grade resurfacing peels and medical facials are performed for you by Dr. Huang. These skin resurfacing treatments are a safe, non-surgical means to help you enjoy healthier, more attractive skin. They involve minimal discomfort and downtime, so you can resume your social or professional schedules immediately. Yet, you will re-present yourself with softer, smoother, more radiant skin, diminished fine lines and pores, and more even skin tone. Our resurfacing treatments remove the outermost aged and damaged layer of skin making room for your younger, smoother skin. They promote collagen deposition deeper down to increase your skin’s thickness and tone and reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles.

To seize the opportunity for enhanced absorption at the time of the peel, Dr. Huang will apply components developed by the most cutting-edge medical technology in anti-aging skincare.

Benefits of these resurfacing treatments are exponential. So like our other clients, you can give yourself the advantages of these nourishing treatments by coming in 3-4 times each year. We offer medical grade 70% Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Mandelic Acid, Retinol, and Jessner’s Protocols, as well as the ultra-popular celebrity Red Carpet Medi-Facial®, depending your skin’s condition.

You are asked to refrain from taking any aspirin, motrin/advil, vit E, and other blood thinners for at least one week prior to your treatment. Exercise may be resumed the following day. Temporary skin bruising may be decreased by taking oral arnica montana. One treatment with Juvederm Ultra XC and Ultra Plus XC ® generally lasts between 9-12 months.
