Our professional clinicians will evaluate your skin and offer you aesthetic options specifically tailored to your needs and desires.
This laser can be used to improve active acne, uneven pigmentation, vascular lesions, and sun damage. It can also help with fine lines and wrinkles by superficial skin resurfacing. There is minimal discomfort, and most people can go right back to normal activities. IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, treatments are non-ablative and gentle to the skin. They are tailored for the needs of each patient. Depending on the condition, 2 to 8 treatment sessions are usually recommended.
Botox Cosmetic (onobotulinum toxin) is used for the improvement of moderate to severe facial wrinkles caused by years of repeated muscle contraction. Extremely safe and effective Botox Cosmetic temporarily reduces muscle activity in the treated areas allowing visible smoothing of lines and wrinkles for up to 4 months.
Chemical peels use safe chemical solutions to remove the outermost layers of the skin. There are several types of peels depending on what condition is being treated and how many layers of the skin need to be treated for desired results. Chemical peels are used to treat uneven skin tone, rough dry skin, blemishes, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation and sun damage.
Also known as epidermal leveling or blading, dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation of the skin using a surgical blade. The procedure removes the outermost layers of dead skin cells, leaving the skin immediately smooth, supple and vibrant. As an added benefit of the treatment, tiny, translucent, blonde hair is temporarily removed from the face. This treatment is easily tolerated by all skin types except acneic skin.
The Erbium Laser produces a beam of laser light that precisely removes the outer layers of aged and sun damaged skin. This gentle treatment stimulates the skin cell turn-over and promotes the formation of collagen and elastin fibers that will strengthen the skin. The Erbium Laser can be used on the face, neck and back of hands for fine lines, pore size, texture and tone, pigmentation and clearing sun damaged skin. Optimal results are achieved by at least 3 treatments.
Our clinicians have the tools to gently remove blackheads and whiteheads from the skin.
We have an individualized process available for men and women who want their skin to look and feel its best. This procedure includes a skin analysis, a deep pore cleansing, treatment masque, moisturizing and massaging of the face, neck, and décolleté.
The Ossential Skin Brightening Treatment creates a radiant, more even skin tone and texture with citric, salicylic and lactic acids to increase skin brightness, clarity, and minimize pore size. The facial includes deep cleansing, mild exfoliation, skin brightening peel and sheet masque, application of antioxidants, coenzymes and sun protection to stimulate growth of healthy cells.
A potent concentration of retinol penetrates the skin, reacting with natural enzymes to help generate new cells and produce more collagen.
Fraxel treatment uses patented fractional technology to target damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. It is used for skin rejuvenation and scarring. The laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched, which promotes rapid healing. This stimulates the body’s own natural healing process, replacing the old and damaged cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin. Soon after treatment the surface of the skin will feel softer and smoother, look brighter and show more even tone. The next 3 to 6 months will bring more improvement as the deeper layers continue to create new collagen. For optimal results 4-6 treatments are recommended depending on the area treated.
Jane Iredale Cosmetics is the first line of make up offered to physicians for healthy skin care. It was also the first line of make up based on minerals. Known as The Skincare Make Up, the Jane Iredale line is so safe and beneficial to use that it is recommended by our dermatologists. Jane Iredale Skincare Make Up combines the most current colors with skin care benefits such as:
Juvederm Voluma XC, with lidocaine, is the only FDA approved injectable dermal filler made specifically to restore volume loss to the cheek area. Containing hyaluronic acid made from a naturally occurring sugar complex, Voluma offers extremely safe, effective and natural-looking results lasting up to 2 years.
Juvederm XC is an injectable dermal filler used to replenish facial volume loss, soften deep wrinkles and enhance the lips. Because it contains lidocaine there is minimal discomfort during the treatment. Made from hyaluronic acid which is derived from a naturally occurring complex sugar, it offers extremely safe, effective and natural-looking results that last up to 1 year.
KYBELLA is the first and only FDA approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin, also called “double chin”. The injection contains a naturally occurring molecule called deoxycholic acid. In the body deoxycholic acid aids in digestion by breaking down fat. When injected into the fat under the chin, KYBELLA causes the destruction of those fat cells removing them permanently. Two to four treatments are required for most patients. The most common side effect is swelling which can be quite significant. KYBELLA is not a treatment for excess and loose skin of the neck and may make that condition look worse.
GentleLase by Candela is the gold standard laser for the permanent REDUCTION of unwanted hair. Safe and effective only for skin types from very pale to light olive; the Gentlelase reduces brown and black hair from all areas of the body. Multiple treatments are required for optimal results and result vary.
LATISSE is the first and only prescription product FDA approved to grow eye lashes – fuller, longer, darker – in people with inadequate or thinning lashes. Used daily, maximum effectiveness is seen at 16 weeks.
Hyperpigmentation (brown spots) caused by sun damage can be lightened using the GentleLase laser. The spots are temporarily darker and may become crusty but will then slough off leaving clearer skin underneath. Multiple treatments may be required depending on the spots and use of daily sunscreen following treatment is required to maintain results.
Microdermabrasion is a simple procedure to brighten your skin, reduce large pores, help ease fine lines and wrinkles, and remove blackheads. This treatment removes old surface skin cells on the face leaving healthy cells to freshen your skin for a healthy glow. The machine buffs and polishes the skin using a stream of fine crystals. This treatment is usually reserved for thick, oily facial skin.
These dermal fillers are made of a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, which is biocompatible with the human body and eventually breaks down naturally. They can be used to add volume and fullness to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. They are extremely safe and effective and offer results lasting up to 6-9 months.
Sclerotherapy is an effective treatment to remove the unwanted spider veins found on the legs. Sclerotherapy is a simple procedure using micro-injections of the prescription medicine Asclera (polidocanol). It works by damaging the cells lining the inside of the blood vessel, causing the vessel to collapse and fade away. To obtain optimal results, several treatments and the use of compression stocking after treatment may be required. Sclerotherapy will not prevent new spider veins from forming; therefore touch-up treatments may be necessary.
Sculptra Aesthetic is a type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid which stimulates the body to replace lost collagen. Sculptra is not a quick fix but gives subtle results over time. A full treatment of Sculptra Aesthetic, an average of three injection sessions over a few months, can last up to 2 years.
The V-Beam laser by Candela is the gold standard in pulsed-dye laser technology with the ability to treat a wide variety of vascular lesions with minimal downtime and little discomfort. It is an effective treatment for facial spider veins, Rosacea, red scars, cherry angiomas, port wine stains and birthmarks. The treatment produces some temporary redness and bruising as well as a sunburn like feeling that may continue for several days. Multiple treatment sessions may be required depending on the condition being treated.
Waxing services are available for a variety of surface areas. A gentle and safe technique is used to remove unwanted hair quickly and effectively.
