There is an exciting new injectable recently approved by the FDA-LAVIV. It is the first FDA approved personalized product for the treatment of facial lines.

Here is how it works: The initial step involves taking a small sample of skin from behind your ear. This sample is then sent to a lab where your cells are carefully prepared and cultured. Once an adequate number of cells have been grown they are formulated into a liquid which is then sent to our office. Your cells are then injected into the folds that run from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth. It generally takes 3 months to grow the cells and the treatments are given at 4 to 6 week intervals to a total of 3 sessions.

Doctor Shavin was involved in the early clinical trials for LAVIV and is an authorized trainer of other physicians for its use.  Dr. Brown is a very experienced injector and has been trained in the use of LAVIV.

To learn more please call our office at 770-972-4845 and ask for Cathy at extension 126 or Valorie at 138.
