Cosmetic Procedures and Products:
BOTOX ® Cosmetic: a simple, non-surgical, FDA approved treatment, that can temporarily smooth frown lines in people over 18. One 10-minute treatment with a few tiny injections and within days there is a noticeable improvement in those persistent lines.
Dysport: Prescription Dysport is a purified formulation used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults. In comparison to BOTOX Cosmetic, we find the onset is much quicker (a few hours to one day) and it may last a little longer than BOTOX Cosmetic. Dysport is used for aesthetic purposes in 36 countries. In U.S. clinical trials, Dysport safety was studied in more than 2,400 aesthetic patients.
Juvederm ™ , the latest long lasting dermal filler advance from Allergan, makers of BOTOX®Cosmetic, is a ‘next generation’ smooth gel, non-animal dermal filler.
Kinerase works differently than most skin care products – it nourishes the skin by delivering important nutrients that moisturize, rejuvenate and protect. In contrast, some other skin care products use harsh ingredients that actually break down and irritate the skin.
LightSheer Diode Hair Removal Laser: This is the “gold standard” for hair removal with an unsurpassed history of clinically documented success treating all skin types including tanned skin, most hair colors, depths and diameters. The patented ChillTip provides continuous contact cooling for maximal patient safety and comfort.
Vibradermabrasion is the new way to do microdermabrasion. Vibradermabrasion Therapy produces exfoliation on any part of the body. The process is fast and very comfortable for patients and produces exceptional results.
One Hour Face Lift : Dr. Cohn highly recommends Dr. Eric Seiger in Troy, Michigan. He performs hundreds of these procedures per year.

VibraDermabrasion:: Large surface skin rejuvenation offers significant improvement in skin tone and texture (well beyond microdermabrasion). VibraDerm reduces: fine lines & wrinkles, acne scars, pore size, age spots and skin dullness.
