Botox®️  Arroyo Grande, CA


For years Botox has helped so many men and women successfully treat wrinkles and facial creases. As people age, they long for a more youthful appearance. Botox is able to give them this.

Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle is then not able to contract. This causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. Botox is typically used on the forehead lines, around the eyes, and frown lines. Typically wrinkles are caused as we age, but they are also brought on by sun damage and gravity.

Receiving Botox actually only takes a few short minutes, and anesthesia is not required. You will simply get injected with a fine needle into the specific muscle and feel only mild discomfort.

Our entire staff is dedicated to helping you. We want to ensure that you are happy with your results and that you never feel like you have any unanswered questions. We are here for you before and after your treatment.

Dermal/Lip Fillers  Arroyo Grande, CA

Dermal/Lip Fillers

What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable gel-like substances used to treat a wide range of cosmetic issues in the face and hands, including diminished volume, fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. Several different companies make fillers, and each has its own unique formulations, which are useful for treating distinct problems in separate areas of the face.

By filling in certain areas of the face, we can contour and create the visage you’ve always dreamed of. Over time, dermal fillers are slowly absorbed by the body and most last anywhere from 12 to 24 months before necessitating a touch-up.

Fillers vs. Botox
Dermal fillers and botox are both minimally invasive, injectable cosmetic treatments. Both are performed as outpatient procedures in the comfort of your doctor’s office and require minimal downtime. While both can improve the overall appearance of the face, they achieve this in different ways.

Botox is primarily used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. It is a purified form of the botulinum toxin, but is a safe, FDA approved treatment that has been used for several decades now.

Botox works by blocking nerve signals to the muscles that cause fine lines around the eyes, forehead, and mouth, also known as expression lines. By blocking the nerve signals, muscles in the injection site become temporarily paralyzed, thus softening or eliminating wrinkles from the area. These results can last up to three months, and the treatment takes about five minutes to complete.

Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are primarily used to rejuvenate the skin and add volume and fullness to various areas of the face. Different brands and types of fillers are made of varying ingredients, including:

  • Hyaluronic acid, such as JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and Belotero®
  • Calcium hydroxylapatite, such as RADIESSE®
  • Poly-L-lactic acid, such as Sculptra®
  • Polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres (PMMA), such as Bellafill®

Each of these fillers is designed to treat certain kinds of aging or other cosmetic issues. Depending on which one is used, they can last anywhere from 12 to 24 months. On average, treatment takes approximately 45-60 minutes.

Fractional Laser Resurfacing  Arroyo Grande, CA

Fractional Laser Resurfacing

Wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, pigment, and scars on your body can have you feeling less confident. Fractional laser skin resurfacing is a safe, easy, and effective way to remove and greatly reduce the appearance of these types of unwanted blemishes on the body.

How does it work?
Lasers deliver light to the skin, causing the cells to release proteins that stimulate new collagen and generate elastin. The laser tricks the skin into thinking it is injured, which evokes the response of fresh skin growth, much like when you get a small papercut. The new healthy tissue is formed over the wrinkles, scars, etc., leaving you looking and feeling your best. Areas treated typically include face, neck, breasts, hips, buttocks, and thighs, and scars anywhere on the body.

CO2 Fractional Laser
Here at Raymund J. Llaurado, MD we use a CO2 Fractional Laser for our Fractional Laser Resurfacing services. By using this technique, only one treatment is needed as opposed to the multiple treatments needed with other lasers.

The procedure is performed in our office and requires minimal downtime. CO2 Fractional Laser treatments are more aggressive than other Fractional Laser Resurfacing treatments, so you will need between 4 and 5 days of recovery following the treatment. This stronger treatment allows for quality, longer lasting results. We celebrate that each patient is unique, so we will customize your treatment plan to be personally tailored to your skin type and desired goals.

Liposuction  Arroyo Grande, CA


Liposuction will help slim and reshape specific areas of the body and remove excess fat deposits. It will also help improve your body contours and proportion. Liposuction uses a small stainless steel tube that is called a cannula that is connected to a powerful suction pump. This is inserted into the fat through a small incision in the skin.

Fat removal is accomplished by the suction created by the cannula in tiny tunnels through the fatty layers. After the liposuction is complete, these tiny tunnels will collapse and leave your body beautifully contoured.

Both men and women achieve amazing results from liposuction. Many patients have different goals. Whether yours is to look better at the beach, or to simply feel more confident everyday, liposuction is able to help you achieve this.

Our entire staff will work with you throughout the entire process. You will never feel alone. If you have any questions at any time, we are a simple phone call away and will be happy to answer them.
