The Piazza Center for Advanced Skin Care offers Austin residents innovative med spa treatments that improve the appearance of aging or dull skin. Our double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Marcelo Antunes and board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rocco Piazza, along with our skilled aesthetic team, can help rejuvenate and refresh your look with several options to help you look vibrant and youthful.
Skin Care Treatments
The popularity of nonsurgical anti-aging and skin rejuvenation treatments continues to increase each year. These procedures are more effective and last longer than ever before and require minimal or no downtime. Maintaining healthy and youthful-looking skin is one of the key elements of our “patient for life” philosophy at The Piazza Center.
Our menu of services includes:
BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most popular nonsurgical treatments for those looking to improve the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes, including frown lines and crow’s feet. A treatment takes about 20 minutes. You’ll typically see results typically within 4 to 7 days after the procedure, although your experience may vary. The results, on average, last 3 to 4 months and we recommend regular maintenance treatments.
Dysport is an injectable product that’s often mentioned in the same breath as BOTOX Cosmetic. Dysport uses the same active ingredient to treat many of the same concerns. However, due to subtle differences in its consistency and formulation, it may be a better option for certain patients. Results can be seen within 3 to 5 days of your treatment and normally last 3 to 4 months. During your consultation, we can discuss all of your options and determine if you’re best-suited for BOTOX or Dysport.
We offer various injectable fillers such as the JUVÉDERM® product line, including VOLUMA® and VOLLURE®, along with Restylane® products Lyft, Silk, Refyne and Defyne. When to comes to reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lost volume, the simple administration and impressive results of dermal fillers are tough to beat. Fillers help women and men safely and effectively fade wrinkles, revealing a refreshed appearance that looks natural and which can last months and even years.
Some fillers are better at treating certain concerns than others, so this isn’t an exhaustive list of indications. However, the following concerns are often very responsive to filler treatments:
- Nasolabial folds
- “Parentheses” around the mouth
- Vertical lip lines
- Marionette lines (extending down from the corners of the lips)
- Diminished volume in the cheeks
- Thin or uneven lips
Every treatment is customized to meet your specific needs and desired outcome.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is an injectable treatment that gradually restores volume by stimulating the production of collagen — one of the foundations of smooth, elastic skin. Sculptra is a beautiful way to frame the face, define the jawline, rejuvenate skin laxity, and replace facial volume loss. It is the first injectable that gives you subtle results over time. Sculptra regenerates lost collagen and creates a very natural-looking appearance so you don’t look like you’ve had “work done.” A full complement of Sculptra treatments (usually 3 separate sessions scheduled over a few months) can produce results that last up to 2 years.
One injectable filler we offer stands out from the rest as the first injectable approved by the FDA specifically for restoring volume to the cheeks. Results of a single, quick treatment can last up to 2 years, although results vary between patients.
Laser hair removal can reduce unwanted hair in specific areas of the body. Treatment is quick, and most women and men require only a few treatments for significant hair reduction.
HydraFacial is the only hydra-dermabrasion procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant protection simultaneously. This results in clearer, more beautiful skin with no discomfort or downtime. The treatment is soothing, moisturizing, non-invasive and non-irritating.
KYBELLA is an injectable treatment that kills fat cells to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin, also called a “double chin.” Even though KYBELLA is approved by the FDA treating the area under the chin, we offer “off-label” uses to treat areas including the bra line, the inner knee, and other small, localized areas of fat. KYBELLA injections achieve the best results after multiple treatments. Most patients have 2 or 3 treatment sessions, scheduled 8 weeks apart, and see results as soon as 4 weeks after the injections.
Microneedling is the latest advance in skin revitalization. It’s an innovative treatment that’s a safe alternative to common skin resurfacing tools such as lasers and dermal rollers and has minimal to no downtime. Microneedling not only helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but also has a positive effect on uneven skin tone and acne scars and improves the skin’s overall appearance, giving you fresher, younger-looking skin. Treatment areas include the face, neck, and décolleté.
Sometimes called “permanent makeup,” micropigmentation is an ancient Asian beautification practice that can enhance facial features such as the eyebrows, eyelashes, and lips. It’s also used to restore the areola for women who undergo breast reconstruction and can minimize the appearance of scars.
At The Piazza Center for Advanced Skin Care, we offer skin care products to boost skin health and improve the overall facial appearance. We offer our own skin care line for patients who desire pharmaceutical grade products aimed at reversing skin damage and slowing down the aging process.

Other Med Spa Treatments
Chemical peels can enhance your skin quality by improving coarse skin texture and hyperpigmentation, reducing the size of your pores, and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. We apply a special peeling agent to the outer surface of your skin which causes a controlled amount of damage to the outer layers. This stimulates cell turnover through a peeling process that takes place for about 3 to 4 days. It is a painless process and leaves your skin feeling and looking refreshed and like a new canvas, with smaller pores and a more even skin tone. This is an excellent treatment for patients with melasma or hyperpigmentation. Chemical peels exponentially improve skin quality when used with The Piazza Center’s non-negotiables like growth factors, antioxidants, and retinols. In designing a customized skin care plan with you, our Skin Care Consultant can help you decide if a chemical peel is right for you- and which type would be the best to achieve your desired results. We offer different peels, including our own signature PIAZZA Peel, which is a gentle but effective peel that is suitable for all skin types.
Dermaplaning removes 2 to 3 weeks of dead skin cells and unwanted peach fuzz, while softening the appearance of fine lines and pigmentation. It is often used to aid in the absorption of chemical peels and antioxidant skin treatments and allows you to get the most out of your daily skin care routine – especially if you’re using medical grade skincare products. There is no downtime with this treatment and is often paired with the HydraFacial, MD for more dramatic results.
Intense Pulsed Light, also known as photofacial, is a precision light generator that minimizes skin discolorations associated with accumulated sun damage. It also is used to safely fade the appearance of rosacea, spider veins, and uneven skin tones. We recommend a minimum of 3 treatments and quarterly maintenance treatments after that.
Brow Shaping and Tinting
Both men and women can benefit from brow services at The Piazza Center. Check out our services:
- Brow shaping is done with wax or threading and then fine-tuned with tweezers to complete your look for the best shape possible. This service is best performed every 3 to 4 weeks.
- Brow and lash tinting are particularly popular with people who have light-colored hair and regularly darken it with mascara and eyebrow pencil. They are also appropriate for people who are sensitive to these products. Our aesthetician uses vegetable-based dye to tint lashes and brows in a range of colors for a result that complements your complexion.
A revolutionary method of depositing hypoallergenic mineral pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. This semi-permanent procedure allows you to subtly enhance and define the pigmentation, shape, and features of your brows, eyes, and lips for a stunning smudge-free effect that can last several years.
