We offer both dermatology and skin care solutions. We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of skin problems as well as enhancing your skin’s natural beauty and health.
Botulinum toxin injections are the most popular non-surgical, non-filler cosmetic treatment done today. Botulinum toxin works by relaxing muscle contractions, allowing wrinkles to relax. It is a safe and effective treatment for scowl lines between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead creases, and crow’s feet at the corner of eyes. It is performed quickly and its benefits last for about 3 months. We use a brand of botulinum toxin called Dysport.
Dermaplaning uses a medical grade scalpel to gently scrape the surface of the skin, exfoliating dead skin and getting rid of fine hairs, leaving a smooth, glowing appearance to the skin.
Micro-needling with Collagen PIN is also known as collagen induction therapy. After topical numbing cream is applied, the Collagen PIN is used to create controlled micro-wounds in the skin, causing a release of natural growth factors that created new collagen and elastin. This results in softening of fine lines, helps reduce acne scars, and allows better penetration of serums and creams. A series of at least 3 micro-needling treatments is needed to achieve the desired outcome.
Chemical peels contain medical acids that exfoliate damaged skin and promote growth of new skin, helping to improve its tone, fine lines, photoaging, and dull quality of the skin. These peels leave the skin looking smoother and brighter.
Superficial peels are the mildest form of chemical peels and can help improve acne and irregular pigment. These peels have very little discomfort or down time.

XTRAC excimer laser uses a targeted beam of UVB light to treat psoriasis, vitiligo, and atopic dermatitis. A series of treatments reduces symptoms and can give long lasting relief, typically several months. A mild sunburn-like reaction or even blistering can occur at treatment sites, but there are no negative systemic side effects. Treatment is quick and is covered by many insurance companies.
Restylane and Restylane Lyft and Silk are hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in skin. Injections help plump facial wrinkles and folds and enhance the lips. We can help you achieve a soft, more youthful appearance.
Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible substance that the body breaks down over time. Sculptra is used to replace lost volume in the face that occurs with aging. It improves gaunt areas of the face such as the temples, enhances the apple of the cheek, improves marionette lines and deep cheek creases by volumizing the cheeks. Topical numbing is applied before injections, and Sculptra’s benefits appear gradually as your body makes new collagen, resulting in a smooth and gentle look.
We provide a variety of facials to improve the appearance of skin. Our estheticians can help choose which one is right for you.

LEG VEIN TREATMENT
Our physicians perform sclerotherapy, or leg vein injection, for spider or reticular veins less than 3mm in diameter. This is not a treatment for varicose veins. Asclera is injected into small veins, irritating the cells that line the inside of blood vessels, causing the veins to close down after time. Effective reduction in veins usually requires 2-3 treatment sessions.
