Microdermabrasion is a spa procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the skin by treating sun damage, scarring, wrinkles and other unwanted skin problems. It may be combined with other procedures such as chemical peels or laser treatment.
During the procedure, your doctor will use a handheld device to transmit tiny crystal particles across the targeted area of aged or damaged skin to scrape away the surface layer. This skin is then suctioned away with a vacuum tool so that the fresh, healthy underlying skin remains. This spa procedure leaves you with fresh, younger-looking skin and a renewed appearance!
The procedure is performed in your doctor’s office and does not require any anesthesia to be used. There is no downtime associated with this procedure, and patients can return to work or other regular activities immediately after. You may experience mild redness for about an hour after the procedure, but this usually goes away on its own. Most patients can achieve noticeable results after a series of five to ten treatment sessions spaced one to two weeks apart.

Have you lost confidence in your appearance as you aged? Do you look in the mirror and wish your younger self was looking back at you? Well we might not be able to turn back time, we can help counteract signs of aging! In time, gravity, sun exposure, and the stresses of daily life take their toll on our faces and necks. A facelift can help address these stresses, and have you looking 10-15 years younger!
Facelifts counteract signs of aging by tightening muscle, removing fat, and trimming excess skin, giving your face a fresher, youthful look. They are most effective for patients who want to correct midface sagging, deep creases under the eyes and between the nose and mouth, and loose skin and fat under the chin and jaw.

When you look in the mirror, are you constantly staring into the eyes of a tired, defeated looking you? Well our doctors can help you in choosing a facial rejuvenation procedure that may give you a naturally beautiful energized appearance that is true to who you are! Here are three procedures that you may want to consider:
BROWLIFTS: Browlifts can revitalize drooping or lined foreheads, helping you look less angry, sad or tired. They involve the removal or alteration of the muscles above the eyes to smooth lines and raise the eyebrows for a more youthful appearance. While browlifts are typically performed on patients aged 40-60 to counteract the effects of aging, anyone with lined or inelastic skin on the forehead are eligible.
EYELID SURGERY: Factors such as aging, sun damage, smoking, stretching and obesity can cause the eyelids to droop and sag. This area is often one of the first to show signs of damage, as the skin of the eyelid is thinner than the rest of the face. Eyelids that droop or bulge can cause people to appear much older or more fatigued than they actually are. Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a procedure that improves the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids by tightening muscles and tissue or removing excess fat and skin. This procedure can be performed on men and women alike and offers a younger, more refreshed look that reflects across the whole face.
EAR SURGERY: Individuals who feel self-conscious about their ears and want to improve their appearance may be good candidates for otoplasty. It is a cosmetic procedure to improve the appearance of a person’s ears. Although otoplasty does not affect hearing, it can provide great psychological benefits to anyone who has been teased about the size or shape of their ears, has had a serious ear injury, or simply wants to be more attractive. Otoplasty is most commonly performed to set unusually prominent ears back closer to the head, called ear pinning or to reduce the size of abnormally large ears.

The warmer weather is approaching – thankfully – and that also means our skin will be feeling the changes. The winter can leave your skin, especially your face, feeling cracked, rough, and dry. Luckily, we have a solution!
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive spa procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the skin by treating scarring, wrinkles and other unwanted skin problems. This procedure uses a gentle stream of tiny particles to exfoliate the outer layer of skin, leaving fresh, younger-looking skin and a renewed appearance. Microdermabrasion may be combined with other procedures such as chemical peels or laser treatment.
The procedure may offer patients effective results that are visible immediately. In addition to its cosmetic results, microdermabrasion also helps enhance circulation and lymph flow, which may allow skin to be healthy on the inside and outside.

Fall is here, which means winter is near. That also means cold winds and a snowy forecast is just around the corner. While you might be shopping around for your new winter coat, keep in mind your face needs attention too! We have a solution – chemical peels! Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin on the face to smooth texture, reduce scarring, and remove blemishes to produce healthy, glowing skin.
There are three types of chemical peels, ranging from mild to strong. Peels can be combined with other procedures such as facelifts for a more youthful look. They may be covered by insurance if they are performed for medical rather than cosmetic reasons.
AHAs are the gentlest of the three types of chemical peel. They smooth and brighten skin by treating fine wrinkles, dryness, uneven pigmentation and acne. AHAs are typically applied once a week, or may be mixed in a milder concentration with a cream or cleanser to be used daily; treatment takes 10 minutes or less.
TCAs are commonly used for medium-depth peeling (though depth is adjustable) to treat fine surface wrinkles, superficial blemishes and pigment problems, sometimes in combination with AHAs. TCAs are the preferred chemical solution for darker-skinned patients and may be used on the neck and other areas of the body. Multiple treatments may be required, but treatments only last 10-15 minutes and recovery time is short.
Phenol, the strongest chemical peel, treats deeper skin problems such as coarse facial wrinkles, pre-cancerous growths, and areas of blotchy or damaged skin caused by sun exposure, aging or birth-control pills. Phenol is used only on the face. Full-facial treatment can last an hour or two and recovery can take a few months, with possible skin lightening and removal of freckles.

Have you ever looked at your cellphone screen after a phone call and noticed there was oil from your face on the screen? Does your face always look shiny when looking at pictures of yourself? Everyone has natural oils within their skin, but some secret more oil than others.
Oily skin is caused by excess skin oil produced within the pores, and the amount of oil fluctuates with hormone fluctuation. For example, an adolescent going through puberty is experiencing a high hormone fluctuation and thus will be more likely to excrete more oil from their pores. It all comes down to one’s genetic makeup and how his or her body reacts to life events.
Here are some tips and tricks to treating oily skin:
- Cleanse: Use a gentle face cleanser twice a day
- Moisturize: Moisturize your skin every day
