Each patient truly matters to us, and we want to assure they are able to maintain great-looking skin even after they leave our office.
Sometimes referred to as photorejuvenation, the IPL photofacial uses intense pulsed light to target and treat specific blemishes such as sunspots, redness, fine lines, and age spots. The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes to one hour. For your safety, we will provide you with eye protection to wear during the treatment. The treatment uses a handheld device to emit the light pulses, resulting in a warm sensation on your skin. You may experience some redness and sensitivity following the treatment, but this should dissipate within a few hours. It may take a few days before you see the results.
We utilize a comprehensive 10-step acne treatment program that combines laser therapy, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and facials as appropriate based on your individual needs. Your skin may look worse after each laser treatment, which is treating the bacteria that causes the acne. Your total treatment and recovery time will vary based on the severity of your acne.
Laser therapy can be used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, sunspots, age spots, scars, and also to even out skin tone and texture. During treatment, you will wear eye protection. A handheld laser will be applied to the treatment area, where you will feel a warm sensation. You may experience some redness and sensitivity up to a few days following each treatment.
Chemical peels can improve skin tone and texture. They can reduce lines, wrinkles, and brown spots, and they can also treat acne. We offer various levels of chemical peels to meet your individual needs. You may experience a tingling sensation as the chemical peel is applied to the treatment area. Most patients require five to six treatments to achieve desired results. Over the following three to five days, your skin will harden and peel, revealing the new skin underneath.
The Dermapen® uses micro needles to cause minor damage to the skin, which tricks the skin into repairing itself. The Dermapen® may be used to treat aging and sagging skin, as well as lines and wrinkles. The treatment can also tone skin and reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, scars, and alopecia. You will feel a light tingling sensation during treatment. Your skin will appear red and feel tight and feel sensitive over three or four days. Your final results will be visible within six to eight weeks.
Microdermabrasion uses a handheld device to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells. This advanced treatment can remove blackheads, heal acne scars, and smooth skin. Most patients require five to 10 treatments lasting 30 minutes. The microdermabrasion will feel gritty against your skin, so a soothing gel will be applied afterward to minimize redness and sensitivity. There is no downtime involved with microdermabrasion.
