Wrinkles and Fine Lines Services
Laser therapy helps create a rejuvenated appearance, smoother texture, even skin tone and decreased pore size. The Medlite is a non-ablative laser that uses PhotoAcoustic Technology energy for quick full-face treatment options with no downtime and minimal discomfort. The Medlite wavelength of light penetrates the skin to stimulate collagen and diminish fine lines and wrinkles and acne scars. Because non-ablative laser rejuvenation is a gradual process, six to ten treatments spaced two to four weeks apart are typically indicated. Let us assess your skin and determine how the Medlite treatment program will work for you!

This innovative technology makes skin visibly clearer, with fewer treatments, and no downtime!
Sublative RejuvenationTM is breaking new ground in the field of aesthetics by offering patients of all skin types a safe and effective solution in reversing multiple signs of aging. Unlike other treatments that work from the outside-in, eMatrixTM radio frequency works from the inside-out – targeting collagen production required for treating fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and textural irregularities caused by excessive sun exposure and aging.
During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation as the radio frequency energy enters their skin. After treatment a pink or red “sunburn” appearance and feeling is also common. Topical anesthetic ointments can be used to reduce unpleasant discomfort during treatment.

Microdermabrasion is a method of polishing and removing the uppermost layer of the skin called the stratum corneum. The result is a topical exfoliation as well as indirect stimulation to the basal layer of the skin which can have a direct influence on increased fibroblast, collagen, and elastin production. The result is a healthier, more vibrant, more firm, hydrated, and improved texture and appearance to the skin.
Several treatments are necessary to achieve desired results. For optimal results, other regimes may be recommended, including skin care products to assist in the blending of pigmentation, reducing sun damage, etc. The FDA has given clearance for the following uses for physician grade microdermabrasion:
- The most even exfoliation and removal of dry, dead skin cells resulting in a fresher, more healthy look.
- Diminishing appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Because we are exfoliating the debris on the surface as well as in the pores (follicles), the pore size is decreased and more refined.
- The removal of keratinized (thickened) areas of skin caused by dehydration, environmental factors, excessive use of topicals, etc.
- The reduction of existing comedones (blackheads) and milia (white spots) due to highly effective exfoliation and follicular debris removal.
- Prevention of breakouts due to the “cleansing” of the follicles, keeping the pores clear of buildup that leads to acne.
- Dark spots (hyper pigmentation) appear to be lightened considerably.
- The reduction of scar tissue resulting in flatter, smoother texture.
- The improvement of post-inflammatory pigmentation scarring from acne.
Chemical peels exfoliate damaged, dead skin cells while rebuilding collagen and stimulating the growth of healthier skin. Chemical peels involve the application of an acid that penetrates the epidermal layer of the skin resulting in more radiant skin. The peels we provide affect the superficial layers of the skin resulting in little to no downtime. We offer Glycolic, Salicylic, Pyruvic, Jessner’s, and Mandelic acid peels.
Glycolic acid is used to treat aging and photodamaged skin. You can expect improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone and texture. Pyruvic acid decreases fine lines, wrinkles, and signs of premature aging. It will also help to reduce the severity of acne blemishes, pore size, even out skin tone, and generally smooth the skin. Salicylic acid is used to treat oily, acne prone skin. You can expect improvement in clogged pores, surface oil, and breakouts. Mandelic acid is used to reduce the appearance of occasional to permanent skin redness and improve skin color, texture, pore size. Jessner’s peels can be used to decrease mild to moderate hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, delivering an over all lightening and brightening appearance.
The eye and mouth peels contain lactic acid and TCA which help to increase skin firmness, decrease fine lines and wrinkles, and decrease dark circles around eyes.
Laser Skin Tightening Services
We use the GentleYAG laser by Candela which uses intense heat and light to stimulate collagen in the upper dermis. We can expect mild to moderate improvement in facial lines and wrinkles and laxity in the skin. Collagen re-modeling will start about two to three months after starting treatments and will continue to make improvements for three to six months after the last treatment. There is no downtime or healing time after treatment; most people will experience a mild sun burn sensation and appearance immediately following treatment. Requires multiple treatments.
