Permanent Make Up
Micropigmentation or permanent make-up (PMU) is the revolutionary method of depositing hypoallergenic mineral pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. With an ultra-thin needle and pigment, the shape of the eyebrows, eyes or lips is enhanced. Micropigmentation is also known as permanent make-up or cosmetic tattooing. The pigments used for permanent make-up are introduced less deeply into the skin layer and have a different composition than tattoo inks. Micropigmentation devices are also more refined than tattoo machines, and the techniques that are used are different.
We use the very best technology and pigments from Nouveau Contour, the premiere global manufacturer of professional micropigmentation devices. We offer a range of natural color choices for eyebrows, eyeliners, and lips. Most importantly, you can be rest assured that every safety precaution is taken since your procedure will be performed by Board Certified ophthalmologist and Corneal specialist, Dr. Sarah Darbandi, who has received extensive training in micropigmentation at the renowned Nouveau Contour Academy.
Dr. Sarah Darbandi offers eyeliner, eyelash enhancement, designer dual color eyeliner, eyebrows (fill in or hair strokes), lip liner, as well as full lip color at our Aesthetic Center.
BOTOX Cosmetic injections are extremely popular with our Jacksonville, Florida, patients, as a safe way to smooth away crow’s feet, laugh lines, and furrowed brows. The FDA-approved product reduces muscle activity to smooth the skin and diminish “dynamic” wrinkles – those caused by repeated facial expressions such as frowning and squinting. The effects last for approximately 3 to 4 months.
BOTOX is injected using a fine needle that causes very little discomfort. These injections do not require any downtime, and are done in just a few minutes in our Mandarin office. Because each patient is different and needs to be evaluated individually, it’s best to schedule a consult and allow time with one of our highly trained professionals to determine what would be most effective for you.

Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is performed in Jacksonville at the Aesthetic Center at our Mandarin, Florida, office. Depending upon the extent of the treatment area, treatment times range from 15 minutes to up to an hour. Please keep in mind that multiple sessions may be necessary.
During the procedure, a laser will dispense a ﬁne intense beam of heated light that disables the hair follicles without harm to the skin in the surrounding area. Unlike electrolysis, which requires the removal of each hair follicle, the laser covers a wide area at once.
The number of sessions varies depending on individual characteristics and which area we are treating. Additional sessions should not begin until hair has time to regenerate under the skin, which generally takes 6 to 10 weeks.
With the Lumenis® UltraPulse® CO2 laser, our physicians can improve your skin and correct conditions such as fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation irregularities, scars, and uneven skin tone. Read more…
