Clinical Care/In-Office Procedures and Peels:

We offer safe, in-office procedures and peels to improve the clarity, tone, color, and texture of skin while requiring little or no recovery time.

The MicroPeel® is a three-part process that includes physical dermaplaning or enzymatic exfoliation, an alpha hydroxy acid treatment, and a cryogenic therapy session that involves freezing the skin. The procedure lasts about 45 minutes. You may apply make-up and return to your daily routine immediately.

The MicroPeel Plus is a one-step clinical procedure designated to control breakouts, while improving texture. Formulated with Salicylic Acid to refine pores and help reduce the appearance of acne.

The Illuminize Peel is a non-invasive, very superficial chemical peel which utilizes a novel approach to chemical peeling with a newer generation of alpha-hydroxy acids to maximize skin rejuvenating effects with low irritation. This peel increases skin glow and radiance, tightens the skin and restores a more youthful appearance while improving clarity, color and skin texture. It is a great peel for first-time peel patients who are looking for a gentle, very superficial peel. There is minimal to no downtime.

Vitalize Peel uses Skin Medica’s unique blend of BHA, AHA, Resorcinol and Retinoic Acid to help fight the effects of time, sun damage and environmental damage. Also improves acne related hyper-pigmentation. When performed in a series of at least three treatments, this powerful yet non-damaging peel can take years off aging skin. This peel addresses various skin conditions such as pigmentation abnormalities, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, melasma, and photodamage. There is minimal downtime.

The Rejuvenize Peel is an advanced formulation of peeling agents, with a built-in anti-irritant and penetration enhancer that provides controlled exfoliation of the uppermost damaged layers of the skin to reveal fresher and healthier skin. This peel is effective for use on skin with sun damage, melasma, pigmentary changes and acne scarring with noticeable results after just one peel. There is minimal downtime.

Red Light Treatment uses the Omilux red light to soothe the skin, promote collagen and help with inflammation.

The Red Carpet Peel is the Micropeel with the Red Light Treatment.

The first step in a skincare regimen is to determine what type of skin you have. Before meeting with our aesthetician, you will be asked to complete a brief skin care evaluation form.

Pellevé Skin Tightening

Pellevé is a revolutionary non-surgical procedure to safely treat facial wrinkles with virtually no pain and little downtime. Using advanced radiowave technology, the Pellevé system precisely heats the deep layers of the skin without damaging the epidermis, or top layer. The heat causes the collagen in the skin to contract and tighten. After treatment, the skin begins to produce new collagen, which improves skin firmness. The result is a naturally refreshed appearance.

Unlike other skin tightening systems, Pellevé doesn’t require anesthesia or skin cooling. Patients can expect to feel a deep warming sensation each time the handpiece touches the area being treated. Because the skin is not numb, the patient can describe the depth of the feeling, which helps to ensure the best possible results. They can also return to home or work immediately. Side effects may include mild discomfort during the procedure within the treatment area. Mild swelling and redness may also occur and typically go away within 2 to 24 hours after treatment.

Pellevé can be used to treat the skin on the face and neck, including the eye area. Many people start to see results after just one treatment, with lasting improvement in skin tightness and tone for up to six months. Because a full facial treatment takes only about an hour with little, if any, recovery time, Pellevé fits easily into busy schedules. For the best results we recommend three session about three to four weeks apart, with a touch up every six months or so. Some individuals may require more sessions depending on the condition of the skin.

Areas treated include: around the eyes/above the brow, around the mouth, jawline, neck, full face, etc. Please call our office for current pricing.

Home Care Product Lines:

We offer an array of skin care including LaRoche-Posay, BioMedic / SkinCeuticals, SkinMedica®, Environ®, and VitaMedica® products to personalize a skin care program that's right for you.

SkinMedica

SkinMedica® – believes everyone deserves to have naturally radiant skin which is why they've dedicated years of research to formulating advanced skincare products that rejuvenate skin.

The entire aesthetic product line is based on the science of the skin's own healing abilities. As skin ages, elasticity decreases, lines appear and overall appearance is diminished. To counteract the effects of time, these skin care products contain restorative ingredients that work below the skin's surface to regenerate the health of the skin.

The scientifically proven recovery compounds include essential ingredients ranging from vitamins C and E to retinol to TNS®, our patented blend of growth factors, soluble collagen, antioxidants and matrix proteins. The impact is clear - fine lines are reduced, age spots and discoloration fade, and skin texture and elasticity is improved. All results of our commitment to creating a lifelong skincare solution for healthier skin.

This entire specialty skincare line is available exclusively to licensed medical professionals for their patients.

SkinCeuticals – provides advanced skincare backed by scientific evidence. SkinCeuticals Topical Vitamin-C products will start to be absorbed by the skin almost immediately. Because these vitamin-C products were developed as a preventative treatment with the goal of protecting the skin from further environmental damage, the skin should benefit the moment the vitamin-C is applied.

ENVIRON® – skin care is the result of one doctor's attempt to treat the melanoma of two young patients. The success of his early products led to the development of a full skin care line. Environ's philosophy is to normalize and maintain healthy skin for a life time, no matter what your age, skin tone or sex may be.

La Roche-Posay – is an advanced skin care program that offers solutions for a variety of skin types.

Prevage MD – PREVAGE MD with idebenone, the most powerful antioxidant ingredient available, has been scientifically proven to be more effective in protecting against environmental stressors known to cause skin aging than any other topical antioxidant including kinetin, coenzyme Q10, vitamin C, vitamin E, and lipoic acid. Results from clinical studies with PREVAGE MD anti-aging treatment showed significant improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as improvement in skin tone and texture in only 4 weeks.

Clarisonic PRO Sonic Skin Cleansing System - improves skin tone, reduces the appearance of pore size and helps skin care products work their best. The Clarisonic PRO uses a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to clean, soften and smooth skin. In just 60 seconds, the micro-massage action removes 6X more makeup and 2X more dirt and oil than cleansing with your hands alone. Removing more dirt and oil from your pores also helps products work more effectively.

Clarisonic OPAL users say that their skin appears brighter, looks younger, and feels refreshed and energized.  And best of all, consumers are experiencing an immediate reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Opal is perfect for the eye area and can also be used on the lip, brow, and forehead areas. The Opal is a palm-sized sonic infusion device that is specially designed to help build skin's resilience over time and prevent future damage around the eyes. By gently tapping the skin around your eye at 125 sonic movements per second, the Opal dispenses the specially formulated Anti-Aging Sea Serum, maximizing absorption in a way that's not possible with your finger alone.

Obagi ELASTIderm - ELASTIderm is a one of a kind eye treatment from Obagi Medical Products. By using a revolutionary bi-mineral complex called Copper Zinc Malonate, it works to help restore the elasticity around your eyes and reduce the appearance of visible fine lines and wrinkles.

Obagi ELASTILash is a non-allergenic, non-prescription product which helps the appearance of thicker, fuller lashes in as little as six weeks. It can be purchased directly from our office.

Liquid Smile - is the first and only professional whitening pen that offers consumers convenient, professional and affordable teeth whitening. Liquid Smile is easy to apply, takes less than one minute, and contains the most powerful dosage of hydrogen peroxide (12%) of any paint-on whitener.

Latisse - is the first and only FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate or not enough lashes, growing them longer, fuller and thicker.

VitaMedica® - high-quality, pharmaceutical grade supplements formulated to provide medicinal benefits for surgery, healing, and age management. Surgery supplements allow the patient to be proactive in their healing process. Age management supplements help patients maintain their results and look and feel their best.
