To enable a sound so RICH RESONANT and deep and unmistakable that once you’ve experienced it, anything less than these unreasonable standards becomes unacceptable.

WHAT IS TRENDING IN YOUR INDUSTRY FOR 2016? Natural cosmetic treatments. Lighter doses of Botox and other neuromodulators. Using small amounts of filler all over the face to rejuvenate each area and giving support to the outer 2/3’s of the face with fillers instead of focusing on the centre with huge cheeks and over-inflated lips. WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON CONCERNS PEOPLE ASK ABOUT IN THEIR CONSULTS? Many patients say, “I look old, sad and tired I don’t know why.” These feelings are usually a result of hollowing tear troughs. The fat pads under the cheeks drift downward as we age. When we fill these areas, the patient looks instantly refreshed.
