Chemical Peels

Our office uses glycolic acid and tricholroacetic acid concentrations that are only available through physicians. These chemicals exfoliate dead, sun damaged skin and improve underlying collagen production. This in turn improves skin tone, pigment, and fine lines. 

Superifical chemical peels have minimal downtime. 70% glycolic peels will keep your skin smooth, help with dark spots, and help unclog your pores. These peels can be done at 2-4 week intervals and can also help with fine wrinkling over time. Great for patients that have extremely busy schedules.

Medium depth chemical peels involve a stronger concentration of trichloroacetic acid. TCA peels give a sunburned, red appearance for approximately a week. After this time, older skin is replaced with healthier newer skin. These peels can have a more impressive effect on sun spots and fine wrinkles. Results are often acheived with a single peel.

HydraFacial MD

HydraFacial MD is the new, all-in-one professional microdermabrasion, chemical peel, extraction and anti-aging infusion.  Through these four steps, this all-inclusive machine cleanses, rejuvenates, and protects your skin.  Effective for all skin types, the HydraFacial MD is a non-invasive treatment that provides immediate results without any downtime.  In under 30 minutes, the treatment addresses skin tone, texture, fine-lines and wrinkles, enlarged and clogged pores, as well as brown spots.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is the standard treatment for varicose and spider veins. A special sclerosing solution is injected into the diseased vein, which then collapses and is gradually absorbed by the body. By the end of the treatment program, the veins are less visible on the skin surface. Sclerotherapy usually also relieves symptoms associated with enlarged veins and prevents further complications.

 
 
Micro-Needling

 

Micro-needling is a cosmetic procedure that uses tiny needles to prick the surface of the skin. This process helps to stimulate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Micro-needling is mostly used on the face and can be used to treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores.  

 
PRP Therapy 

 

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy is a medical treatment that uses a person's natural growth factors in the blood to spur natural rejuvenation. The blood contains plasma which is rich with natural growth factors in the platelets. First, the person's blood is drawn (typically from the arm), then processed to separate the plasma, then the plasma is applied to the affected area.

For Hair Loss: When the PRP is injected into the scalp, the PRP will trigger the hair follicles to grow naturally. 

For the "Blood Facial": PRP treatment can be paired with a Micro-needling procedure to tighten, smooth, and improve skin tone.
