We offer procedures with minimal downtime that target different areas of the skin to create a healthy vibrant glow and reverse the signs of aging. All procedures are done by experienced licensed professionals. We look forward to customizing a skin care regimen for you!
As we get past 30 our collagen production decreases and the effects of sun, environmental exposure, and chronological aging start to take their toll. If you smoke, spend a lot of time outdoors, or are in a polluted area, this can start even earlier. Fine lines and wrinkles can start to appear. The skin gets blotchy with uneven pigmentation, and broken blood vessels become more prominent as we age.
Laser treatments like the Gemini Nd:Yag (1064) or Laser Genesis from Cutera can stimulate collagen to rebuild itself, which in turn gives a plumper, more youthful look to the skin. Lines recede, and the overall look is fresher, smoother, and all without downtime or invasive procedures. We recommend treatment monthly to maintain supple, healthy-looking skin.
The Cutera Excel V and Laser Genesis have two powerful and precise wavelengths of laser technology. Laser Genesis restores skin tone and texture, improves fine lines and wrinkles, reduces pore size, and treats active acne and scars. It usually requires 3-6 treatments, depending on the desired results, but has zero downtime. This laser can also treat rosacea, angiomas, port-wine stains, venous lakes, poikiloderma, lentigines, freckles, and skin tags.
The KTP laser from Gemini, with its unparalleled affinity for pigment, eliminates unwanted vessels and age spots. It can be used with pin-point precision to eliminate unwanted vessels on the nostrils and cheeks. For more diffused redness, such as rosacea, we use Intense Pulsed Light (IPL or Photofacial) to treat discoloration on the face, legs, arms, and back. We generally recommend a package of 3 to 6 treatments for best results.
We have two leading radio-frequency devices; the Alma “Accent” and the Infini microneedling system to tighten and firm the skin. It boosts collagen and elastin repair to improve general skin laxity and the appearance of cellulite. We carry products that can prolong the results of your treatments. There is minimal to no recovery time, no anesthesia, incision, or stitches, and the conversion of thermal energy allows for collagen contraction to tighten the skin. Prevention is easier than correction!
The Icon fractional laser is a safe and effective treatment for both non-ablative and ablative skin resurfacing. The Pixel creates thousands of microscopic perforations in the skin while leaving the surrounding tissue intact. These micro-injury sites begin to heal remodeling collagen, fading scars, and improving texture. The Icon creates channels of these perforations under the surface of the skin so in healing from the inside out, the skin becomes stronger, and surface layers can shed off evenly and create a more uniform texture. Both these procedures require some healing time, usually 3 days to a week. More than one treatment is usually required for scars and/ or stretch marks depending on their depth and texture.
This form of permanent hair reduction has been practiced around the world for years. It is safe and effective for most skin types. Energy is pulsed to the hair root to inhibit further growth. The laser is drawn to dark pigment contained in the hair follicle. It cannot be used on very blonde or white hair as they lack pigmentation at the roots. A series of 6 to 8 treatments scheduled 4 to 6 weeks apart is recommended for best results. Some areas such as the chin and upper lip are influenced by hormonal fluctuations, so they may take more treatments to get maximum reduction.
Botox is a non-surgical approach to temporarily reduce/ eliminate frown lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet. It is injected into the muscles to relax the furrows and creases that occur from repeated facial movements. It is effective for the forehead, the space between the brows, and the outer corners of the eyes. Treatments are tailored to each individual client by amount and placement of the injections. We strive for a natural, expressive look, but will consult with each client to get their desired results. Botox lasts from 3 to 4 months.
Dermal Fillers are a family of hyaluronic acid gels that are injected into deep lines and creases to add volume and lift. It is infused with Lidocaine (a local anesthetic) to make the injections more comfortable. The results are smooth and natural, and the product is safely absorbed over time. We use the latest injection techniques to guard against bruising, overfill, lumps, and other serious complications. We carry the Juvederm line of fillers that include Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra-Plus, Voluma, Vollure, and Volbella. They are designed for different areas of the face, and are cross-linked in different consistencies dependent on the area to be filled. Juvederm is for nasal-labial folds and lips. Voluma is for the cheek area for fullness and lift. Vollure is for vertical lines on the lower face, and Volbella is for precise fill of lip lines and the surrounding area. Every one of these injectable fillers creates contour and subtle lift with natural looking results.
Kybella is a deoxycholic acid. It is injected to reduce the appearance of the “double chin” (submental fullness) caused by age, heredity, or weight gain. Results are permanent and typically require 2-4 treatments, to achieve the desired results. An initial consultation is done to determine if you are a candidate for this procedure.
