Linx and GERD Treatment

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is a painful reaction to stomach acid that continually goes back into the esophagus. When you swallow food, there is a small muscle that relaxes to allow food to pass from the esophagus to your stomach. After food passes through, the muscle closes the opening.

When that muscle weakens, stomach acid is allowed to enter the esophagus, causing intense heartburn. Over time and without treatment, the stomach acid could cause esophageal bleeding and ulcers. Linx is a small ring that fits over the bottom of the esophagus to help it remain closed when not eating.

Cosmetic Treatments


Used primarily in the abdominal area, but with applications for other areas of the body, TruSculpt is a method of removing fat without the need for invasive surgery. In fact, no incisions are made and no foreign substances ever enter the body. Ultrasound is used to stimulate the natural process of fat burning in the body.

While not recommended for those with a body mass index of 30 or more, TruSculpt is used on areas that may need a little help or have excess skin. Although everyone is unique, treatments usually last around 15 minutes and patients can return to their normal daily activities after the visit. There may be soreness or redness after the procedure but it doesn’t last very long.


Although they’re called “frown lines,” the lines that appear between your eyebrows are caused by a lifetime of showing all kinds of emotion with our brows. Clinically known as glabellar lines, Xeomin is used to help relax certain facial muscles by blocking certain chemicals. As those muscles relax, wrinkles disappear.

Xeomin treatments are relatively painless and are applied in the focus area of treatment. The early changes can be seen in as little as 72 hours and patients achieve the desired look in four to six weeks. Dosages, how often treatments are needed, and other factors will be established during initial consultations. These results can last for months on end.


As we age, wrinkles become more prominent around the mouth, nose, and eyes. These “laugh lines” may show a life well-lived, but if you still have some living to do, Juvederm can help soften those wrinkles and give you a more youthful appearance. Juvederm even works with some acne scars and dark circles under your eyes.

Using a modified form of hyaluronic acid (HA), Juvederm is an injectable treatment that provides long-term relief from wrinkles. While results are almost immediate, the treatments last anywhere from six to 12 months. This minimally invasive procedure will correct lines and add volume to the skin, ideal for lip augmentation.
