BOTOX Cosmetic® is the one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed in the U.S. today.
This procedure involves a series of injections into the specific muscles (of the face) which cause the appearance of wrinkles. BOTOX® injections are designed to relax the muscles that can temporarily reduce or eliminate:
- Frown lines
- Forehead creases
- Crow’s feet by the eyes
- Bunny lines on the bridge of the nose
- Smoker’s lines on the lips
BOTOX® injections can relax and soften these wrinkles and lines, giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. While each treatment can usually be done in approximately 10 minutes, results aren’t typically apparent until several days after (and can last up to 4-6 months). In conjunction with some of our dermal fillers and/or laser treatments at Jon’Ric International, a dramatic improvement in appearance can be achieved quickly with the use BOTOX®, without surgery and practically zero downtime.
Our chemical peel treatments at Jon’Ric International involve the use of a chemical solution to smooth skin texture by removing the damaged outer layers. Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to improve skin on the neck as well as the hands.
A chemical peel can help improve:
- Acne or acne scars
- Liver spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- The appearance of freckles
- Irregular skin pigmentation
- Rough skin, scaly patches & scars
- Sun-damaged skin
Dermal Fillers (Hyaluronic Acid)
Dermal fillers such as hyaluronic acid (which is a natural substance found in the body) have recently gained popularity for facial augmentation use. Hyaluronic acid may be an ideal choice as a dermal filler because it can not only reduce facial wrinkles and lines, it is not derived from animal sources so it chemically compatible with the human body (it acts as a network that transfers essential nutrients from the bloodstream to skin cells).
When hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin as a dermal filler (in the form of a gel), it can act as an inflated cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity as a result of aging. It can also aid in bringing water to the surface of skin, for a more fresh and supple complexion.

Laser Skin Resurfacing
Also known as a laser peel or laser vaporization, laser skin resurfacing procedures can help reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, scars and other blemishes.
Laser skin resurfacing works by using a device to send short, pulsating beams of light into an irregular area of skin. This removes unwanted, damaged skin in a very precise manner, one layer at a time. The laser beam will remove the outer layer of skin (the epidermis) while simultaneously heating the underlying skin (the dermis).
This action works to stimulate the growth of new collagen fibers and as the treated area heals, the new skin that forms is smoother and firmer. This technique can additionally improve other minor facial flaws, such as:
- Fine lines/wrinkles around or under the eyes, forehead or mouth
- Scars from acne or chickenpox
- Non-responsive skin after a facelift
- Sun-damaged skin & liver spots
- Yellowish or grayish skin tones
- Warts or birthmarks
- Enlarged oil glands on the nose
Laser Tattoo Removal
Whether it’s for professional reasons or to remove an artistic symbol of your past, making the decision to have a tattoo removed via laser treatment may not be easy. At Jon’Ric International we make the process of “tattoo fading” as well as complete tattoo removal as safe, painless and affordable as possible.
Older methods of tattoo removal involved burning, scraping or cutting out the tattoo, and older lasers work by burning rather than fading tattoos. As a result, the scars remaining from these particular treatments were often worse in appearance than the original tattoo.
At Jon’Ric International we use lasers which are superior to outdated removal techniques because they actually remove tattoos (by causing the ink in the skin to “fracture”), while minimizing damage to the skin. These “fractured” (or smaller) ink particles are then removed by the body’s immune system. The unwanted tattoo gradually becomes faded with each treatment, and eventually the appearance can be significantly reduced, or practically invisible.
Our microdermabrasion treatments at Jon’Ric International involve the use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand skin on the face, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. This type of skin rejuvenation is generally used to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage and stretch marks. Microdermabrasion can:
- Improve age spots and hyperpigmentation (patches of darkened skin)
- Lessen the appearance of stretch marks, fine lines & wrinkles
- Reduce or eliminate enlarged pores and/or blackheads
- Treat acne and the scars left by related skin disorders
Additionally, microdermabrasion helps to thicken collagen, which results in a younger, more refreshed looking complexion.
Laser wrinkle reduction, which is suitable for practically all skin types, is one of the latest methods available today that’s safe, reliable, and produces effective results. This type of anti-aging technology targets the upper layer of the dermis to stimulate collagen formation, reduce wrinkles and give the face a healthier, fuller appearance.
Laser wrinkle reduction is also beneficial for clients with age spots, facial redness (rosacea), or pigmented lesions, and more significant results can be achieved by combining treatments with our microdermabrasion services at Jon’Ric International. Each procedure usually takes about 45 minutes for a full face treatment, but can vary according to the size of the area(s) being treated.
