Dr. MCKINLEY

My name is Hailey Wilson McKinley, I received my bachelor’s degree in biology with a minor in chemistry and psychology from Indiana University in Bloomington. Similar to my parents and both grandfathers, I attended the Indiana University School of Dentistry. While in dental school, I developed an interest in Periodontics after receiving a soft tissue graft in my own mouth. I shadowed the periodontal residents throughout the four year of my dental school curriculum and my interest in periodontics was confirmed. I quickly found that I enjoyed periodontal surgical procedures and oral pathology.

Upon graduation from dental school in 2018, I matriculated into the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, SC (MUSC) for my periodontal residency. While there, I had the privilege of serving as Chief Resident in a program that is renowned for its focus on clinical exposure and case difficulty. Residency allowed me to expound upon the techniques that I began to develop in my dental school education. Through my extensive training, I am now confident and proficient with immediate implants, implants in the esthetic zone, ridge and sinus augmentations, soft tissue grafting, traditional and laser periodontal surgery, periodontal regeneration, and IV sedation. I earned my Master of Science in Dentistry and Periodontics in 2021 after defending my thesis on lateral periodontal cysts at the MUSC Oral Pathology Laboratory.

Care Esthetic

  • Microneedling with PRF

Microneedling with PRF is a cosmetic procedure in which the patient's blood sample is extracted to process their Bio-PRF and is applied to their facial skin, which is punctured using a Dermapen. This treatment is a great option for patients who want to reduce the appearance of scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, fine lines, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, and dull or tired-looking skin.

Price: $650

  • Facial Injections With PRF

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) uses your own blood to help rejuvenate your skin. The platelets contain growth factors, which stimulate tissue regrowth. When used in cosmetic procedures, such as dermal fillers, PRF helps promote faster healing and tissue regeneration. PRF facial injections work to promote collagen production, which may help restore your skin’s volume and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.

Price: $600  

  • BIOFILLER MADE WITH PRF

Anyone who has allergies or autoimmune limitations may be reluctant to undergo artificial fillers. Bio-filler with PRF is a natural biological filler that offers superior results while being safe for the patient. The Bio-Filler procedure has shown promising results and demonstrated that when it is implanted within the dermis and superficial layers of skin, collagen synthesis is induced. This unique method can create a stable clot after the heating process, which offers improved volume enhancement and extends the results of fillers by several months.

Price: $800

  • Smoothlase

Smoothlase is a natural, non-surgical method to de-age your face and give you a more youthful feel and appearance. FDA-approved Fotona laser works by heating the collagen-producing cells in the skin, encouraging them to produce more collagen and elastin. The collagen and elastin tighten skin, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin texture.

Price: $700

  • SMOOTHEYE - FOTANA

The non-ablative Fotona SMOOTH® mode therapy SmoothEye® tightens the periocular area and lessens the visibility of periorbital wrinkles. With minimal to no downtime and optimum patient comfort, SmoothEye® dramatically tightens loose, aged skin of the eyelids and periocular region, making it a highly sought-after non-invasive cosmetic procedure. After a few treatments, the skin's suppleness, general structure, and volume are enhanced, and there will be a noticeable decrease in wrinkles.

Price: $200

  • LIPLASE (FOTONA)

Liplase is a non-invasive treatment to plump lips without Injectables to result in fuller, smooth lips. It is an all-natural method that stimulates remodeling of the collagen and initiates the creation of new collagen in the patient's lips without any downtime. The attributes of "perfect lips," such as fullness, volume, the proper balance between the upper and lower lips, and a clearly defined vermilion border, can be obtained with the treatment over time.

Price : $200  

  • LASER PEEL - FOTONA

Fotona laser peels are a quick and painless procedure that can dramatically improve your skin appearance. Fotona lasers have two light wavelengths in their system, resulting in enhanced regenerative results. They are an effective and less invasive way to achieve younger, healthier-looking skin with improved skin texture and tone, fewer wrinkles, and a reduction in scars and blemishes.

Price: $450

  • Mole removal

A mole is a collection of melanocytes, skin cells that produce melanin. Moles can typically be brown, tan, or black in color. Laser mole removal is a simple procedure that removes a mole using laser light that vaporizes the mole. The procedure is noninvasive and requires no anesthesia or stitches.

Price: $200

  • Hair Removal (FOTANA)

Fotona's Nd: YAG laser uses a high-powered wavelength that targets and destroys your hair follicles. Fontana is a safe way to quickly remove hair, even from the more sensitive areas. Fotona's Nd: YAG laser emits a wavelength of 1064 nm, which has been shown to provide safe, effective hair removal in women and men. The laser energy is attracted to the pigment in the follicles, heating them up and destroying the hair-producing cells.

  • Vein removal

Facial veins are dilated blood vessels just underneath the skin that can be seen through the skin. They can be blue, red, purple, or light in color. Facial veins are most often visible on the nose, cheeks, chin, and around the eyes. The laser can be effectively used to treat the appearance of undesirable facial veins harming the surrounding skin.

Price: $200

  • BIO-PRF LIFT PROTOCOL

BIO-PRF LIFT is a minimally invasive soft tissue rejuvenation procedure that uses natural methods to stimulate facial rejuvenation to result in instantly lifted skin. The LIFT procedure uses three therapies - Microneedling with PRF, platelet-rich fibrin treatment, [PRF], and natural facial filler injection to maximize the bioactivity and regenerative capacity of the human body to result in rejuvenated, tightened, and youthful skin. It can treat issues like wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, under-eye hollows, noticeable nasolabial folds, etc.

Price: $1100

  • Bio-Care Protocol

Bio-Care Protocol is an all-in-one treatment that addresses several skin issues non-invasively by using a five-step treatment plan. This signature treatment enhances facial rejuvenation and restores the skin’s youthful glow by utilizing SmoothLase, LipLase, laser peel using Nd: YAG and Er: YAG by Fotona, Microneedling with PRF, and Bio-fillers. This treatment thus can help reverse facial aging naturally by combining the benefits of laser therapy and PRF treatments.

Price: $1400

  • Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are injectable products that are used to augment the lips or fill deep wrinkles. These products may contain hyaluronic acid and are injected just below the skin's surface to add volume and smooth out lines or wrinkles. Injectable fillers can be used to plump the lips, add volume around the cheeks and chin, and even fill out thin or recessed scars.

Price: $750 per syringe

  • Botox

Botox is an injectable that is used to temporarily relax muscles that cause frown lines and wrinkles. Botox can also be used to treat medical conditions such as jaw clenching and restore a more youthful appearance by reducing wrinkles. Botox works by blocking nerve signals to the injected muscles. This temporarily prevents muscle contractions, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Price: $9 per unit

  • EXFOLIATING FOAMING CLEANSER

Our Exfoliating Cleanser gently cleanses and exfoliates the skin without affecting the skin's natural pH level. This gel-based enzyme cleanser has a pH-friendly formula that removes dead skin cells to result in smooth, youthful, and rejuvenated skin. The cleanser improves cell turnover and stimulates rapid skin rejuvenation to result in a vibrant and youthful look.

Price: $60

  • EYE CONTOUR CREAM
