Laser Hair Removal
A laser is used to produce a beam of concentrated light to safely destroy hair follicles of dark hairs, providing hair growth reduction and elimination of hairs. This treats unwanted hair in both men and women on the face, neck, and body.
Intense Pulse Light
Intense pulse light technology corrects brown discoloration, small veins, and rosacea of the face. The same treatment can be used on the neck, chest, arms, and hands.
Microneedling causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. The micro-injuries trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to remodeling of collagen and elastin.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
This procedure uses the patient’s own PRP, which is injected into specific areas of the skin, acts as a matrix that promotes collagen growth, regenerates tissue, and in turn naturally smoothes and tightens the skin.
SilkPeels work by removing the accumulated top layers of the epidermis that contain old skin cells and dead skin cells, thus revealing healthier, younger looking skin underneath. SilkPeels have an advantage over traditional microdermabrasion treatments because they exfoliate the skin and also deliver topical nourishment to the skin in one treatment. SilkPeels are non-invasive treatments that can be completed in less than 30 minutes.
A chemical peel is used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun.
Vitalize Peel For anti-aging, melasma, sun damaged, and acne prone skin. The Vitalize Peel is the most popular SkinMedica peel that is appropriate for all Fitzpatrick Skin Types. It contains a proprietary blend of ingredients to help rejuvenate the skin. Achieve visible improvement after one treatment with optimal results after a series of treatments.
The Vitalize Peel combines resorcinol, lactic, salicylic, and retinoic acid (at aesthetician’s discretion) to offer dramatic improvement in texture and tone. The renewal process stimulates collagen production, improves pigmentation, acne, and melasma. The skin appears healthier and more youthful with minimal downtime. For best results a series is recommended.
Rejuvenize Peel can be used on Fitzpatrick Skin Types V – VI after the patient has established tolerability to Vitalize Peel or with physician consent. The peeling solution in the Rejuvenize Peel contains Salicylic Acid, Lactic Acid, Resorcinol, Panthenol, and Isoceteth-20. This peeling solution combined with a Retinol Solution can substantially improve the appearance of the skin.
SmoothBeam is an advanced multi-effect, non-ablative laser treatment applicable to acne scarring, active acne and collagen loss. These quick and comfortable laser treatments are very helpful in reducing active acne and acne scars and reversing some of the collagen loss of aging. SmoothBeam stimulates the body’s natural collagen-building process by a burst of laser light which creates heat beneath the skin surface.
Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to eliminate varicose veins and spider veins. It involves an injection of a solution (generally a salt solution) directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to collapse and stick together and the blood to clot.
