Methionine Inositol Choline (MIC) Injections, also referred to as Lipotropic Injections, are used to help release fat throughout the body by specifically targeting its primary fatty deposits. Lipotropic, or fat burning substances include: inositol, which helps the liver remove fat; choline, which distributes cholesterol and prevents it from getting deposited in one part of the body; and methionine, which is similar to inositol, but also amplifies the combination. Injections can be administered up to twice a week, and vitamin B-12 is purported by practitioners and users to help accelerate metabolic processes, while creating a greater feeling of overall energy. Since lipotropics directly aid in the breakdown of fatty tissue, and are also closely related to B vitamins, when used together, they are thought to intensify each others' effects and are usually injected together as part of the same treatment injection cycle.
DYSPORT®, the newer, better BOTOX®
Dr. Ennis is a skilled injector who has been in practice for over 13 years. To help turn back the hands of time and to avoid lines and wrinkles from occurring on the upper section of the face, Dr Ennis is pleased to offer DYSPORT to those with aging skin. DYSPORT, like BOTOX, is a form Botulinum Toxin Type A that is injected into the skin to temporarily reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. Once the toxin is injected the muscles that cause the wrinkles are paralyzed so that wrinkles are unable to form from facial expressions. Although there are some major similarities between DYSPORT and BOTOX, there are some stark differences between the two toxins. Both toxins paralyze the muscles so that wrinkles are not able to form, but DYSPORT is reported to respond quicker to the paralysis and muscle weakening than BOTOX.
DYSPORT injections seems to avert wrinkles as long as six months, sometimes longer, while BOTOX, on average will last about 3 to 4 months before another injection is needed. DYSPORT can be less expensive than BOTOX, but BOTOX patients find that the injections are more effective and more potent than DYSPORT.

Hypertension is the medical term for high blood pressure. To understand high blood pressure, it helps to think about how your circulatory system works.
Dr. Ennis is a skilled injector who has been in practice for over 13 years. To help turn back the hands of time and to avoid lines and wrinkles from occurring on the upper section of the face, Dr Ennis is pleased to offer BOTOX to those with aging skin. This nonsurgical treatment offers amazing results and is extremely popular among both women and men. This injectable can make a big improvement to still lines and wrinkles, which are created by making expressions from the contracting muscles on the upper face. These facial lines go away when the face is relaxed but dynamic lines can still remain. To correct these static lines, BOTOX is carefully injected to soften the skin, and is most commonly placed between the brows, around the eyes (Crow's feet), and along the forehead.

We combine microneedling with PRP to rejuvenate the skin without surgery. Microneedling on its own works well to brighten and refresh the skin. The addition of PRP takes the treatment to the next level by making aging skin tighter and smoother and by reducing the appearance of acne scars, leading to a youthful appearance. This is the ideal option for anyone looking for visible results without surgery or downtime.
We also use PRP for Hair Loss. This procedure is a natural one and can be used on male and female patients. Clinical tests have shown PRP can increase the density of hair follicles by as much as 30 percent!
So how does it work? The PRP serum is first created from a small amount of blood which is extracted from the patient. Centrifugation is then used to separate platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the blood. When injected back into the scalp, the growth factors present in the PRP solution stimulate new hair growth. The PRP serum is made using a small amount of the patient’s own blood. Centrifugation is done to separate the PRP. The PRP is then injected into the scalp.
