“I am a big believer that if you focus on good skincare, you really won’t need a lot of make up.”
Youthful skin is achieved through treating pigmentation, texture, and pores, keeping the skin clean and stimulating collagen.
Cosmelan 2 Peel
Hyperpigmentation is caused by abnormal production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin color. Causes may include genetics, hormones, sun exposure and trauma. The Cosmelan 2 Peel is applied in office, worn home and washed off a few hours later. A topical anti-spot cream for home use helps maintain results and prevent new pigment from starting. Downtime: Every individual is different. Pinkness, intense peeling 3-10 days.
Jessner Solution is a tried and true superficial peel that has been used in the aesthetic industry for many years. It is a solution of alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy acids and is used to treat photoaging, age spots, acne, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, melasma and freckles. Jessner Peels are often done in a series. Downtime: Every individual is different. Pinkness, mild peeling 3-4 days.
A TCA peel is trichloroacetic acid and is a medium to deep peel that can treat actinic keratosis, melasma, wrinkles, acne scars and sun damage. Downtime: Every individual is different. Redness, moderate to severe peeling 5-14 days.
Retinoic Acid Peel
Tretinoin and Retinoic Acid, a strong Vitamin A derivative, has been used in the industry for many years as well. It has shown great success in clinics and studies for the treatment of dermatoses such as acne, melasma, scars, skin aging, wound healing and non-melanoma skin cancer. It can even be added to a Jessner Peel for increased pigment and texture improvement. Downtime: Mild pinkness, flaking 2-4 days.
Denave 585 Fiberoptic
Let’s talk about Denave! A brand new technology to the US market, this fiberoptic laser is incredible for vascularities, rosacea, acne, sun damage, age spots and… post injectable bruising! That’s right, the Denave breaks up a bruise immediately with just a few seconds of pulsed light energy. It’s also great for stubborn nasal and cheek capillaries, darkness under and around the eyes from vasculature and port wine stains. There is little to no down time with this laser, not to mention it makes your injectable downtime a thing of the past! Downtime: minimal, up to 2-3 days of pink and mild swelling.
Fibroblasting with Plasma Pen
It’s the newest advancement in noninvasive, skin-lifting, skin-tightening, rejuvenation, resurfacing and regeneration. As our skin ages it begins to weaken, lose flexibility and strength, and dramatically decreases collagen production. Though the appearance is similar to a microneedling pen, it couldn’t be more different. It has been designed entirely to repair, reverse and mitigate the negative effects of aging by using state-of-the-art nitrogen plasma technology. By transferring nitrogen plasma energy to the epidermis, or top layer of the skin, and simultaneously heating and disrupting the deep skin layer, we are able to tighten, lift, resurface and regenerate any area of aging skin. This includes thinner skin areas like the eyelids, as well. This is known as “fibroblasting.” The Plasma Pen gives natural and long lasting results with very little downtime and recovery (3-5 days).

Frozen C Cryotherapy Facial

One of my favorite treatments – The Nova Thread Lift! Whether alone or in conjunction with Sculptra and other fillers, the Nova Thread Lift has minimal downtime and powerful results! Small threads are inserted at different levels within the cheek and neck and then gently pulled upwards to lift unwanted sag and laxity of the facial tissue. The threads are then cut, leaving you with a beautiful lift and hidden absorbable sutures. The Nova Thread Lift lifts, tightens and creates collagen over 4-8 weeks! Minimal bruising may occur. Downtime: Little to non
The Aquagold Microinfusion Treatment involves using a tiny micro-channeling device that delivers a special elixir of blended components directly into the superficial layer of the skin. These ingredients are individually tailored and often include botox, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and super nutrients. The device has 20 needles, finer than a human hair and is plated in 24-karat gold. Downtime: 30 min-1 hour.
Microneedling – Collagen Induction Therapy
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure. It is an electric needling system that causes micro-wounds of the face and areas of treatment to cause your body to make more collagen and elastin. As your skin heals, it produces collagen and elastin and improves texture and scarring. It can be used in combination with serums, antioxidants, PRP, stem cells and hyaluronic acid. You might also hear it called collagen induction therapy. Downtime: 1-2 days.
