Sometimes, a fresh, youthful-looking complexion is hidden only by a layer of dead, dry skin cells. Microdermabrasion is performed to exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin cells, revealing the healthy skin underneath. This facial treatment also stimulates the production of collagen so that new layers of skin can become even more beautiful and smooth. One of the most sought after procedures, microdermabrasion is relatively easy and typically painless, it can be compared to the sensation of a cat licking the face while others describe it as a refreshing tingling feeling. Treatments can be performed on all parts of your body including the face, neck, hands, and chest.*
InMode Facial Treatments

Injection of Fillers
Restylane® is a cosmetic dermal filler that can restore volume to the face and reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds. Unlike other dermal fillers, Restylane® is derived from a substance that is naturally found in the human body and contains no animal proteins, thus reducing the risk of complications. The results of Restylane® generally last for six months.*
Restylane Lyft® is a dermal filler can restore volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). The difference between Restylane Lyft and Restylane is the gel particle size. Restylane Lyft® gel particles are larger and designed for deeper injections. Restylane Lyft® typically lasts at least 6 months, in the majority of patients.*
Juvéderm™ is an injectable smooth gel filler which can instantly smooth out wrinkles and folds by adding structure and volume underneath and bringing sunken skin back up to the surface. Juvéderm™ is produced through hylacross technology creating a high degree of cross-linking and promoting duration for up to 6 months or longer.*

Sculptra® is a synthetic filler that can smooth away deep wrinkles and facial folds, leaving the patient with a fresh, rejuvenated face. Sculptra® is also the only FDA-approved treatment for facial fat loss (lipoatrophy), a condition that can result in prominent facial folds, sunken eyes, and hollow cheeks. Sculptra® is comprised of a biocompatible substance known as poly-L-latic acid, a synthetic version of the substance naturally produced by the body’s muscles during exercise.*
BellaFill® is the first and only FDA-approved non-resorbable wrinkle filler for the correction of smile lines. BellaFill® is dual acting containing PMMA microspheres and purified bovine collagen gel. These unique micorspheres are not absorbed by the body and provide the permanent support your skin needs for long last wrinkle correction. Before initial treatment, a skin test must be administered 4 weeks prior to screen for an allergy to bovine collagen.
Injection of BOTOX®
BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most popular wrinkle treatments in the country. Prominent wrinkles and folds are caused by the contractions of underlying facial muscles. BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles so they can no longer contract. The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic last up to four months.

Mind and Spirit
Our primary commitment to Hurwitz Center patients is combining the latest quality aesthetic procedures with thorough postoperative management to achieve anticipated results. To optimize the experience and psychological gain, we have initiated a Mind and Spirit section which prepares our patients for surgery while promoting overall health and well-being. These programs include stress management, psychological testing and counseling, and the hCG hormone with restrictive diet in preparation for body contouring surgery.
To maximize the benefits you receive from our care, the Hurwitz Rejuvenation Center offers psychological testing and support. We administer well-recognized assessments and conduct individual counseling sessions to evaluate patients' mindsets and to determine and adapt treatment plans that suit their needs. The purpose of these services is to go beyond traditional cosmetic surgery and provide comprehensive, uplifting support to patients as they undergo treatment.
LifeStyle Fitness and Age Management
A complete evaluation of your nutritional, psychological, hormonal and cardiovascular status and reserve will be evaluated. A customized program of life style changes, diet and medications will be designed for your preparation for surgery. We strongly advocate this plan for those planning on Total Body Lift Surgery.
For patients interested in losing weight, the hCG plan combines a calorie-restricted diet with injected hCG treatments. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is a protein released during pregnancy that helps control metabolism. The hCG treatments stimulate the body to burn calories from the deep layers of fat that are stored around the hips, thighs, abdomen, and upper arms. As a result, patients are often able to lose weight where they desire it the most while still burning enough calories to avoid feeling hungry. The plan has been used safely in Europe and Morocco for over 20 years and is now administered at the Pittsburgh Hurwitz Rejuvenation Center to help patients lose weight before their body contouring procedure so that optimal results may be achieved. As the FDA has not approved this medication for weight loss, hCG is being administered off-label.*
