Clinical Treatments for Beautiful Skin
Regular exfoliation and deep cleansing of the skin is proven to enhance its health and appearance. We can accomplish this in a number of ways using various acidic solutions to peel the skin, by dermaplaning or microdermabrasion. We offer different levels of skin peels to stimulate elastin and collagen, to smooth the skin surface and help correct discoloration.* Light superficial peels and exfoliation treatments are very comfortable and relaxing with little or no down time. Stronger treatments may cause some epidermal peeling before revealing more radiant skin. We also have great results treating acne* and have many teenage and adult patients. Several physicians refer their young patients to us for our gentle effective cleansing treatments. We believe that early treatment of acne with education of how to care for the skin leads to fewer breakouts and avoids the scars which are inevitable due to picking by frustrated sufferers of this condition.
We currently offer the most effective medical skin care products available from such prestigious lines as:
Our treatments include:
