Our skin care products:
Ava Anderson Sun Protection. This non-toxic, broad-spectrum sunscreen from a local entrepreneur is 100% organic and made without harmful chemicals. The sunscreen is free of parabens, phthalates, synthetic preservatives, fragrance and dyes.
Neova Skin Care. We carry many of the anti-aging products in this science-driven skin care line, from moisturizers with advanced sun protection to DNA Repair and Copper Combination skin care therapies.
Obagi Nu-Derm. This clinically tested line of skin care products targets many of the culprits of premature aging (e.g., age spots, brown spots and hyperpigmentation) at the cellular level, leading to healthy, younger-looking skin. One of our most popular products in this extensive product line is the ELASTIderm eye treatment, which uses zinc and copper to help restore elasticity and build collagen.
SkinCeuticals. The cleansing and conditioning products from this science-backed skin care line are specifically formulated to decongest pores, smooth irregularities and brighten skin to improve both tone and texture.
Teamine Eye Complex. The Teamine eye cream uses advanced technology to help reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness in the delicate area around the eye. Teamine also helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles in the eye area.
Tretinoin Cream (Retin-A). This prescription-strength skin-care product works by penetrating the skin’s surface to transform cell function and correct skin damage. It is used to accelerate exfoliation to improve fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and mild acne.
VIVITÉ. These products combine a glycolic compound with natural antioxidants to form a formula matrix that deeply penetrates skin to help promote the production of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and epidermal growth factors. Vivite also has a non-glycolic compound that calms and soothes the skin, which we use for post-chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and surgery.
Many, many thanks for your gifted hands and your artful surgery. My results and recovery are remarkable. Your post-operative care was comforting and most reassuring. The massage and skin care appointments were uplifting, fun, and a very nice service you offer your patients. You have a kind and professional staff. They obviously enjoy working in your office and helping patients – like me – feel unrushed and happy with treatments offered.

Our peri-operative procedures include:
The micro-peel treatment is a safe, effective three step procedure using glycolic acid to remove a micro-thin top layer of skin. Micro-peel treatments improve uneven pigmentation, superficial acne scars, freckling, age spots, fine lines and overall skin texture.
The micro-peel plus treatment is a safe, effective procedure using salicylic acid to refine skin texture damaged by environmental factors and skin conditions such as acne. It is especially beneficial for oily and acneic skin types.
The micro-dermabrasion treatment gently abrades and draws out impurities from the skin using the healing and naturally restorative powers of salt. The micro-dermabrasion treatment helps in reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damaged skin, age spots, acne, miscellaneous scarring, stretch marks, uneven skin tone and rough textured skin.
During the early stages of recovery, our Aesthetician will blend professionally formulated make-up especially for you to camouflage bruising and swelling. This makes for a smooth and easy transition back to work or play.
During the early stages of recovery, our Aesthetician will do a series of specialized therapeutic massage techniques. These therapeutic massages are extremely beneficial in ones’ recovery and will not only minimize swelling and discomfort but will also feel incredibly relaxing and soothing.
