boost hair growth. We focus on products and services that create natural-looking results, help the body stimulate its
own collagen, and enhance the health and look of your skin
Dysport- Frown Line Injectable
Dysport is an FDA-approved injectable treatment for the temporary improvement of the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines (glabellar lines) between the eyebrows in adults less than 65 years of age. Dysport is a neuromodulator, an injection of a small amount of botulinum toxin that treats frown lines when injected into underlying muscle, causing it to relax and gradually smooth out the appearance of the frown lines between the brows.
Restylane- Hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers
Restylane offers the broadest line of hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers in the U.S, and is the only line of HA fillers with products FDA-approved for both the face and hands.
The fillers smooth away facial wrinkles and folds (Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne), enhance lips and smooth lines around the mouth (Restylane Silk), add lift and volume to the cheeks (Restylane Lyft), and is the only HA filler portfolio with a filler that is FDA-approved to help to reverse the signs of volume loss in the back of aging hands (Restylane Lyft).

Meet the Providers
Joel Gates, DO
Dr. Gates attended University of Colorado, Oklahoma State University, and completed his residency at St. Mary’s Medical Center in Grand Junction, CO. He has been practicing Family Medicine in Ridgway for 18 years, and along the course of time, many patients inquired about “what could be done” about wrinkles and small blemishes on the skin. After tiring of the reply, “I cannot help you with those,” and prompting from a neighbor who happened to be a Galderma Certified Trainer, he began to look into the treatments and technology of Aesthetic Medicine. He went to a medical conference that was not sponsored by the manufacturers of these products to gain insights into what was available – first focusing on Medical Dermatology – identifying and treating malignancies of the skin with advanced procedures. He has incorporated Medical Aesthetics into his practice as one more modality that helps his patients feel great about themselves and their health.
