What are My Skin Care Options?

Skin care covers a large selection of services that can be strictly cosmetic or intended to correct conditions like acne, age spots, or wrinkles. It includes procedures for removing hair or correcting damage caused by prolonged exposure to the sun. Some examples of the many skin care services we offer are acne treatments and skin tightening.

Acne Treatments

There are several types of acne, and they range in severity from whiteheads and blackheads to cysts. While people can generally take care of mild acne on their own, moderate to severe acne should be treated by a professional to reduce the risk of scarring.

If the patient has mild to moderate acne, someone on our team may start by recommending a topical treatment. If those don’t work, we may prescribe other treatments, such as laser therapy. In laser therapy, we use a laser called Isolaz™ that the FDA has approved for acne treatment. It’s the only laser that has a suction device attached to it, and that suction device is used to vacuum out the bacteria and debris blocking the patient’s pores. Most patients can see results within a day or two.

What is Skin Tightening?

Skin tightening describes any of various skin care procedures done to reduce wrinkles and sagging skin. There are many non-surgical procedures available that can tighten the skin, and some of these include the following:

  • Ultherapy®
  • Thermage®
  • Exilis Ultra

While some patients may need only one treatment, most will need a series of treatment sessions to get the desired results. The body will continue producing more collagen in the weeks and months after the treatment.
