Laser Hair Removal
We utilize the latest in laser technology to effectively treat unwanted hair growth in individuals with medium to lighter skin types. While no laser hair removal is permananent, patients remain hair-free for extended periods of time.
A diamond encrusted wand is passed over the skin to mechanially exfoliate the superficial layers resulting in collagen and elastin renewal. This treatment is then follwed by a light chemical peel. Fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, sun damage, enlarged pores and uneven pigmentation are effectively treated with little or no downtime. This service is available as a single treatment, or for more significant improvement, as a package of four.
An erbium laser is used to precisely remove the outermost layers of skin to effectively treat conditions associated with aging and environmental damage. Ideal for those wanting lasting results with little discomfort or downtime. Immediate improvement in skin texture and tightness can be obtained. Typically, a series of 2-3 treatments is recommended.
An automated MicroPen procedure uses tiny needles to create controlled "micro-injuries" to the skin which results in the production of collagen and elastin. The procedure is performed with minimal discomfort and downtime. Benefits include a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin texture and tone, younger looking skin with fewer signs of aging, improving acne scarring, trauma scarring, hyper-pigmentation, and even stretch marks. Microneedling also allows topical gels, serums, and creams to absorb better, into deeper layers of the skin.
Moles are brown or black growths, usually round or oval, that can appear anywhere on the skin. They can be rough or smooth, flat or raised, single or in multiples. They occur when cells that are responsible for skin pigmentation, known as melanocytes, grow in clusters instead of being spread out across the skin. Generally, moles are less than one-quarter inch in size. Most moles appear by the age of 20, although some moles may appear later in life. Read More »

Psoriasis affects as many as 7.5 million people in the United States. About 20,000 children under age 10 have been diagnosed with psoriasis. Read More »

This inflammation of the face can affect the cheeks, nose, chin, forehead or eyelids. More than 14 million Americans suffer from rosacea.

Skin cancer is the most common form of human cancers, affecting more than one million Americans every year. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer at some point in their lives. Skin cancers are generally curable if caught early. However, people who have had skin cancer are at a higher risk of developing a new skin cancer, which is why regular self-examination and doctor visits are imperative. Read More »
Warts are small, harmless growths that appear most frequently on the hands and feet. Sometimes they look flat and smooth, other times they have a dome-shaped or cauliflower-like appearance. Warts can be surrounded by skin that is either lighter or darker. Warts are caused by different forms of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). They occur in people of all ages and can spread from person-to-person and from one part of the body to another. Warts are benign (noncancerous) and generally painless. Read More »
Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. They occur most frequently in areas exposed to the sun, such as the face, neck, back of the hands and forearms. Over time, skin gets thinner, drier and less elastic. Ultimately, this causes wrinkles - either fine lines or deep furrows. In addition to sun exposure, premature aging of the skin is associated with smoking, heredity and skin type (higher incidence among people with fair hair, blue-eyes and light skin). Read More »
