The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure is the only FDA-cleared,* non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting—so you’ll look great from every angle.

Botox Cosmetic

Botox Cosmetic is used to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the forehead region of the face. Botox Cosmetic can take years off your appearance without surgery by softening forehead lines, frown lines, and crows feet. Treatment with Botox Cosmetic allows you to continue to express yourself naturally, but prevents your expressions from lingering in the form of lines and wrinkles.

Before your appointment, you will be asked to avoid alcohol for the week prior to the procedure. Depending upon your medical condition, Dr. Coates may also ask you to avoid aspirin and other anti-inflammatory medications in the weeks leading up to your visit.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers such as Juvderm™  and Voluma are used to improve the appearance of deep wrinkles, such as those that may form around the mouth.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peeling is a procedure used to improve the texture and tone of the skin. A chemical solution is applied to the skin which removes the outer layers, stimulating the regeneration of new skin. The new skin will be smoother and may be more even in color than the skin removed. Dr. Coates and her staff offer an expanding variety of chemical peels including Salicylic Acid Peels, Glycolic Acid Peels, and TCA Facials. If you choose to have a chemical peel, be prepared to discuss your current skincare regimen at your appointment, so that treatment can be tailored to your skin and to your desired outcome.


Microdermabrasion is a method of skin resurfacing which removes the outer layers of the skin, allowing new skin to form. Immediately, you may notice smoother, younger-looking skin. Microdermabrasion may be used in combination with chemical peeling for a more dramatic result.

If you choose to have a microdermabrasion, be prepared to discuss your current skincare regimen at your appointment, so that treatment can be tailored to your skin and to your desired outcome.
