INFRARED SKIN TIGHTENING
Infrared skin tightening provides an effective but minimally invasive procedure for smoothing out wrinkles and improving facial skin topography. The laser heats up the epidermis as it shines and causes the skin to increase collagen production as well as contract immediately due to the increased temperature. The surgeon is able to adjust the strength of exposure and customize treatment for each patient.
RADIOWAVE MOLE REMOVAL
Moles and other birthmarks are benign pigmented spots or patches of skin that may be of medical or cosmetic concern. Depending on their depth, location and color, as well as the patient’s skin type, age and other factors, treatment for moles may take the form of laser or pulsed light therapy, microdermabrasion or surgical excision.
Photodynamic therapy (PDT), also known as photoradiation therapy, is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat skin cancer and other conditions such as acne, rosacea and actinic keratosis by destroying abnormal skin cells.
LASER ABLATION OF FACIAL SPIDER VEINS
Spider veins, also known as telangiectasias, are small, thin blood vessels visible beneath the skin. They appear most commonly on the face and legs, and may look like a series of lines, tree branches or spider webs. There are several different types of laser treatment available, most of which effectively treat the veins over several treatment sessions with little to no downtime.
PHOTO FACIAL/INTENSE PULSED LIGHT
Photofacial is a non-abrasive and non-invasive rejuvenation of your skin using the remarkable technology of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). Photofacials can improve the signs of sun damage, rosacea and brown spots on the face, hands and body. It has also been used to reduce the appearance of mild acne scars, dark circles around the eyes and fine lines around the eyes and mouth.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Whether for hygienic or cosmetic reasons, women and men who are tired of temporary, often painful methods of removing unwanted hair often welcome laser hair removal with relief. Lasers produce highly focused, intense beams of light. Dark pigments in the hair follicles beneath the skin’s surface absorb this light and convert it to heat, destroying the follicles and preventing hair growth for up to two years.
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.
Sclerotherapy usually also relieves symptoms associated with enlarged veins and prevents further complications.

SCAR REPAIR & REVISION
Scar revision is performed to reduce the appearance of scars caused by injury or previous surgery. Scars are by definition permanent, but surgery can narrow, fade and otherwise reduce the appearance of severe or unattractive scarring, which is especially helpful in areas of cosmetic importance such as the face and hands.
FRACTIONAL AND FULL ABLATIVE CO2 LASER RESURFACING
Laser resurfacing can reduce the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, uneven pigmentation and superficial scarring, usually on the face. A carbon dioxide (CO2) laser beam of intense, precisely-focused light vaporizes the surface skin and reveals the undamaged layer beneath.
Chemical peels removed damaged outer layers of skin on the face to smooth texture, reduce scarring and remove blemishes and pre-cancerous growths, producing healthy, glowing skin. There are three different types of chemical peels that range in strength from mild to strong and are each designed to provide different results, depending on a patient’s skin condition.
Dermabrasion removes a layer of surface skin to improve the appearance of facial scarring due to acne, chicken pox, injury or other causes, as well as uneven pigmentation, wrinkles, sun damage, tattoos, age spots and certain kinds of skin lesions. The skin is frozen, typically with a spray, and then abraded with a high-speed rotary instrument for a dramatically smoother, fresher look.
Microdermabrasion uses a gentle stream of tiny particles to exfoliate the outer layer of skin and produce a fresh, glowing, younger appearance with improved texture, tone and complexion. Only a small amount of skin is removed during this procedure, so all areas of the face can be effectively treated.
INJECTABLES & FILLERS
Fillers such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Restylane® and Juvéderm® Injectable Gel treat wrinkles and folds within targeted areas of the skin, while also restoring lost volume through simple, safe and effective injection treatments. These injections usually last for at least four months, depending on the type of filler and the individual patient, and can be repeated to maintain results.
