Rejuvenated

Photorejuvenation

Photofacial is a series of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments that targets the upper layers of skin to stimulate the production of collagen and connective tissue. As the laser works on the outer layers of skin, it improves skin texture and reduces the size of pores, and makes the skin’s appearance smoother and more even.

Microdermabrasion with Hydrating Facial

Microdermabrasion is a light cosmetic procedure that uses a mechanical medium for exfoliation to gently remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the epidermis. This is a non-invasive procedure and may be performed in-office by a trained skin care professional. Often called “microderm” for short, microdermabrasion is a procedure to help exfoliate or temporarily remove a few of the top layers of the skin. Much like brushing one’s teeth, microdermabrasion helps to gently remove skin “plaque” and skin debris. For best results a series of 3-6 treatments is recommended.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels can remove brown spots, improve skin tone, acne and diminish fine wrinkles. Our chemical peel treatments are performed by specialists in our clinic, who use solutions to improve and smooth the facial skin by removing damaged outer layers. It increases cellular turnover that results in a finer epidermis. At the same time, it nurses skin that is dry or oily, sensitive, acne prone and sun damaged. We are always on the lookout for ways to look much younger than our age. Because chemical peels are highly effective, more and more are visiting our clinic to get this treatment.

Skin Tag, Mole, Nevi, Wart Removal

Are you bothered by small growths of skin around your eyes, neck, armpits, groin or under the breasts? Skin tags, generally found where the skin folds and creases are caused obesity, hormonal fluctuations and other factors. Some people are more prone to developing skin tags, but most are benign and removing a tag will not cause more to grow. Skin tags can be removed by a doctor by freezing, cauterizing and cutting them off with a small amount of a local anesthetic.

Fillers

FACIAL SCULPTING WITH FILLERS

 

Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face.

As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent.

The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle.

Dermal fillers can be used to:

• Plump thin lips

• Enhance shallow contours

• Soften facial creases and wrinkles

• Improve the appearance of recessed scars

 

Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery.

 

You may be a good candidate for dermal fillers if you:

• Are physically healthy

• Don’t smoke

• Have a positive outlook and realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance

 

For some patients, surgery such as a facelift, brow lift, or eye lift may be the best approach.

There are several different types of dermal fillers.

 

• Hyaluronic acid -- Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Silk, Juvederm ultra, Voluma

• Poly-L-lactic acid -- Sculptra

• Calcium hydroxyapatite -- Radiesse

• Polymethylmethacrylate -- Bellafill

 

Dermal fillers differ in chemical make-up, longevity, and have varying degrees of softness. Softer fillers are used in the lips, for example, while sturdier fillers might be desired to enhance cheekbones.

 

Dr. Kim will determine with you the best type and volume of filler needed for your particular areas of concern.

For many people, the use of these fillers can be a simple office-based procedure that can nicely enhance their appearance. These dermal fillers are very predictable, and have relatively minimal risks and side effects.

 

Lip Enhancement

Have years of sun exposure, smoking, lifestyle and genetics caused your lips to lose their shape, fullness and vitality? As we age, they become thinner, the upper lip begins to droop and we develop fine lines on and around the lips. If you’re unhappy with your lips, lip augmentation can correct and enhance them using non-surgical methods that are minimally invasive. If the Chinese Proverb, “Every smile makes you a day younger” is true, then what are you waiting for?

Microneedling with Growth Factor

Safe and highly effective collagen stimulating treatment as well as an excellent transdermal delivery system for various growth factors and stem cells. Non-invasive alternative to laser resurfacings. Great for scar repairing, reducing pigmentation, blemishes and fine lines. Includes post-procedure skin care kits.

Needleless Mesotherapy (Microcurrent Face Lift)

Non-invasive Face Lift tightens and tones facial muscles, helps reduce sagging, stimulates collagen and elastin production and improves overall skin vitality by transporting active ingredients deeply into skin. Effective and painless alternative to fillers with no down time.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Facial Rejuvenation

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is packed with multiple growth factors and is used for skin rejuvenation for aging and damaged skin.  PRP can stimulate stem cells to regenerate collagen and elastin for improvement of skin texture and elasticity as well as fine lines and wrinkles.  Using your own enriched plasma permits the body to remodel tissues to a healthier and younger state.  This is a great treatment for thin crepey skin, especially around the eyes and neck, and for décolletage, full face and hands.

 

PRP procedure takes about an hour and is performed by our medical director, Dr. Kim.  A course of treatments involves 3-4 appointments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart and results can be maintained with a single repeat treatment every 12 months.

 

Swelling and redness of the treated areas are common and may be dramatic, especially around the eyes, although usually only for 24 hours.  Some bruising is also to be expected and although this can be covered with make-up after the initial 24 hour period it may take 1-2 weeks to clear completely.  For this reason we would not recommend having this treatment within the 2-3 weeks before a special event.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Hair Regrowth

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a proactive therapeutic option for male and female patients experiencing hair loss due to hormonal and environmental causes or stress.  PRP is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions.  PRP treatment utilizes the growth factors from your own blood for healing the bald spots and hair thinning areas.

 

The primary purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive hair follicles into an active growth phase for thinning hair.  The dormant scalp tissues are pumped with the growth factors of PRP to give nutrition to the scalp cells, promote the supply of new blood to the hair follicles, and minimize scalp inflammation to create productive and healthy hair follicles.  As a result the scalp is rejuvenated with a renewed ability to produce thicker new hair.

 

As a non-surgical treatment option, we recommend PRP therapy along with Minoxidil and DHT blockers or for those patients who can not tolerate or have side effects with these medications.
Potential side effects of PRP hair restoration are mild swelling on the forehead, mild headache, and possible tenderness of the scalp from PRP injection, that usually goes away in 1-2 days.  The decision to use PRP is a personal one and should be made after careful consideration and consultation with a physician.
