Today more than ever, individuals are paying closer attention to their skin. Exposure to the elements, as well as dietary habits, can greatly effect the condition of one’s skin. We offer a number of health-focused treatments and procedures to help nurture and safeguard your skin as you age.
Essential Skin System
Our program consists of two parts: The first part is an intense 6 week treatment regimen that restores your skin to a more youthful appearance and helps reverse sun damage. This is accomplished using daily applications of Retin-A and bleaching cream. The second part of our program is designed to maintain the improvements gained in the initial phase.
Our Essential Skin Care System is complete and provides all cleansers, toners, moisturizers, and exfoliators needed. This system is easy to use and will maximize the beauty and health of your skin.
This fractional approach is the first cosmetic laser to provide an effective procedure that creates new healthy tissue by stimulating the body to naturally repair aging and photo damage skin without significant risk or recovery time.
This procedure is performed in our office using topical anesthesia. The treatment itself takes 30-45 minutes, depending on the area being treated. The skin will be red for 3-5 days and the patient will experience swelling for about 2-3 days. For optimal improvement, a series of 3-5 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart has been shown to be most effective. Results are progressive, with noticeable effects over 3-6 months.
Intense Pulsed Light
The best candidates for IPL /Photo rejuvenation are patients who desire to improve multiple imperfections to their skin; people who suffer from rosacea and experience flushing and redness; people with early aging and sun damage and people with enlarged pores and unsightly small spider veins.
Laser Hair Removal
Patients generally require 4–6 treatments according to skin type and area of treatment. The ideal candidates for these treatments are those with dark course hair and no tan. During your initial consultation our nurse will determine your skin type and evaluate the desired hair to be treated.
miraDry® – Reduce The Sweat
miraDry® is simple: just three easy steps. The underarm area is 1) marked, 2) numbed, and 3) treated with miraDry®. And it only takes about one hour. miraDry® uses energy that targets and destroys the sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once those glands are destroyed they do not grow back. It’s quick, pain-free, and effective.
There may be some bruising, and rarely blistering, that will resolve in a week to ten days. 3-4cc of the solution can be injected in a single session, which allows treatment of fairly extensive areas. We request that you wear a compression hose for the 48 hours after the treatment for the best results. Additional treatments can be performed at four to six week intervals. For further information, please call the office or complete our contact form.
Make Up Services
We also offer postoperative make-up applications allowing you to return to your social life and regular routine promptly. Our make-up artists are also happy to provide new make-up ideas after surgery to go along with your new look.
Permanent makeup is also available in the office including: eyeliner, lip liner, full lip color, and eyebrows.
We utilize Premier Pigments which are carefully formulated without iron oxides, which, over a period of time can discolor and fade. The initial consultation is with our fully trained skin care nurse who will assist you with color selection and details of the procedure and recovery period. The application of permanent makeup is performed by your surgeon in our office facility with topical anesthesia or topical anesthesia with sedation. Temporary swelling, bruising and crusting may be experienced, but is very short lived. If you have any history of fever blisters and are undergoing any procedures involving the lips, you will be treated with medication to prevent and outbreak in the post-operative period.
