The Sciton MicroLaserPeel ™ is the latest advancement in treating such conditions as fine lines & wrinkles, scars, acne scars and pigmentary problems. This procedure is designed for people who expect better results than a microdermabrasion or light chemical peels, want immediate results, but have little time for a prolonged healing process. Patient recovery from the Sciton MicroLaser Peel ™ is rapid, typically experiencing smoother, healthier and more vibrant skin. Symptoms immediately following the procedure resemble sunburn, with mild weeping, which can last 1-3 days. The procedure may be performed on a Thursday or Friday, so you may return to work the following Monday. Any mild discomfort you may experience can easily be managed with an over the counter pain reliever. Depending on individual desired results, one procedure could be sufficient for at least 6 to 12 months. However, typically, the procedure is repeated 2-4 times, spaced 6-8 weeks apart.
Profractional™ Laser Resurfacing
Profractional™ resurfacing uses laser energy to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin, stimulating the production of collagen, smoothing out lines, scars and other irregularities. Immediately following the procedure you may experience a mild redness, resembling a sunburn sensation. Complete healing takes 2-5 days and most patients can get back to work and apply makeup within 4-7 days after the procedure. Profractional™ is a fast procedure done in our office, usually taking 30 minutes to an hour.
The Premier Rejuvenation Peel- combines a MicroLaserPeel™ and Profractional™ for a more dramatic improvement in the overall appearance of the skin.

During BBL® Skin Rejuvenation, a cold gel is applied to the treatment area. An anesthetic cream may be applied also to the treatment area, but is usually not necessary. The specially designed BBL ® hand piece is gently pressed to your skin in order to administer controlled pulses of light. Some patients mention a slight stinging during treatment, comparing the sensation to that of a rubber band snap.
Perioral/Periorbital Resurfacing - Localized deeper perioral (area around the lips) and periorbital (area around the eyes) laser resurfacing for deeper wrinkles can be performed in the office setting by one of our Board Certified Plastic Surgeons after a local anesthetic block is administered to the treatment area.

Waxing is a method of semi-permanent hair removal from eyebrows, face, bikini area, legs, arms, back and abdomen. If waxing is done regularly for many years, permanent hair reduction may happen. Hair must be at least ¼ inches long. All products such as AHA, Retin-A, Renova and Accutane, as well as tanning bed use or direct sun exposure must be divulged to the esthetician before treatment to ensure utmost safety.
Sciton BBL ® Hair Removal uses a broadband light to gently remove unwanted hair, putting an end to routine shaving and waxing. This advanced technology transcends the older, painful hair removal treatments to deliver long-lasting results. The Sciton BBL ® treats more than one hair at a time, making it possible to treat both small areas on the face as well as lager areas such as back, chest, shoulders, arms, and legs. During BBL ® hair removal, a cold gel is applied to the treatment area. An anesthetic cream may be applied also to the treatment area, but is usually not necessary. Some patients mention a slight stinging during treatment, comparing the sensation to that of a rubber band snap.

Blue Light Acne Treatment
BBL (broadband light) Blue Light technology is one of the most effective acne therapies available today. In many cases, we can prevent our clients from needing to go on aggressive oral medications or long-term antibiotics. The shorter wavelengths of BBL, in the blue-light spectrum, attack p-acnes bacteria on the surface and in the sebaceous gland, thus killing the bacteria and preventing future breakouts and diminishing current breakouts. During Blue Light treatment cold gel is applied to the treatment area. The specially designed BBL hand piece is gently pressed to your skin in order to administer controlled pulses of light. Some patients mention a slight warming sensation during treatment.
