All new patients must participate in an initial consultation. A comprehensive evaluation of the skin condition is provided and a customized aesthetic plan with a focus on natural results is conferred upon the initial visit. Consultations may be provided virtually via Face Time if preferred.
GLYCOLIC ACID PEEL
Glycolic Acid Peels, also known as “lunchtime facials” are one type of Alpha Hydroxy Acid. They are naturally derived from sugar cane. Their superficial skin penetration allows for exfoliation of the skin without excessive redness allowing you to return to work or go about your day with radiant skin. Good for acne, aging skin, dehydrated skin, pigment problems and acne.
SALICYLIC ACID PEEL
Salicylic Acid Peels are one type of Beta Hydroxy Acid, naturally derived from willow bark. In addition to exfoliating dead skin cells they are particularly good for drying up oils. This feature makes them particularly good for people who have very oily, acneic skin and large pores. Some light redness and tenderness may persist for about 24 hours. Good for oily, acneic skin.
A gentle cleansing is provided followed by steaming. Blackheads are then extracted and a light acid peel is applied. If cysts are present, they are injected with an anti-inflammatory medicine for an additional charge. Cool compresses are applied and then a gentle moisture massage is delivered with hyaluronic acid followed by SPF protectant.
DESTRUCTION OF BENIGN LESIONS
Acrochordans or “skin tags” are fleshy benign growths that appear of the underarms, neck and groin.
Angiomas are bright red usually flat growths that can occur anywhere on the body and are related to aging.
Seborrheic Keratoses are brown warty growths that have a “stuck on” appearance.
Erbium YAG Laser Peel
The Erbium YAG Laser skin resurfacing helps to improve an assortment of conditions such as sun damage, scars, fine lines & wrinkles. The laser light energy emitted is attracted to the water in your skin cells. This causes the skin cells to vaporize in a controlled and consistent depth. After the damaged skin is removed, new skin cells are regenerated.
We offer the “Gold Standard” of tattoo removal with Q-Switched technology to remove unwanted tattoos. The dual wavelength laser targets specific ink colors. The tattoo ink is then broken down into tiny particles that are small enough so that the body’s own natural immune system can flush them away.
Laser Hair Reduction
The Spectrum diode laser will reduce and may permanently remove unsightly body hair. Melanin gives your hair color and is what the laser light targets to destroy the hair follicles in the active growth stage. Most people comment that they wish they had done this earlier in their life and that it is “life-changing”, having to no longer deal with embarrassing razor stubble or ingrown hairs. Unique to the Spectrum is a hair de-bulking setting that is especially useful for densely hairy areas such as a man’s back or chest.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
Intense pulsed light is a non-invasive, light treatment that delivers energy into the deeper layers of the skin to improve skin tone and texture. Vascular lesions, redness, broken capillaries, and sun spots can be significantly reduced or erased. The range and wavelength of the light emitted during the treatment can be adjusted to accommodate your specific skin needs and concerns.
Radiofrequency Micro Needling (RFMN) with Pixel8
Radio Frequency Microneedling (RFMN) is used to rejuvenate the skin and improve the skin surface by reducing fine lines, expression lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and acne scars. The concept of Microneedling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical injury such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. As the Microneedling device is moved across the skin, pin-point punctures are made to create very minor micro injuries. In response to the perceived injury, a cascade of growth factors will be released, which in turn triggers new collagen synthesis. This process has two major benefits – it effectively stimulates collagen formation and provides a clear channel for topical serums and growth factors to be absorbed through the surface of the skin. Since RFMN does not use light energy it is safe on darker skin types.
