Laser Hair Removal
OMG . . . are you still using a razor, plucking or waxing? Is it time to get rid of razor burn, dried nicks, and acne-like breakout from getting rid of undesirable hair? Now is the time to consider Laser Hair Treatment. A few office visits will be required to remove your unwanted hair – usually from 2 – 6 visits. Most patients remain hair free for months. When some of the hair regrows, it will likely be less noticeable. Hair also tends to be finer and lighter in color. To keep the area free of hair, treatment can be repeated as needed.

Hyaluronic acid is not harsh or skin stripping. It’s a powerful moisture binding ingredient designed to keep the skin plump and hydrated. Naturally found in the body, Hyaluronic acid attracts water and thus adds moisture and creates fullness to the skin.
Ever wondered why a baby’s skin looks so dewy and plump? It’s because babies are born with a high level of hyaluronic acid. Unfortunately, the amount in skin diminishes with age which is why it’s important to restore the skin’s hyaluronic acid content by using a serum.

Chemical Peels are a cost-effective way to reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles caused by aging and sun damage as well as lighten pigmented areas such as freckles, “age spots” or liver spots, and melasma (splotchy discoloration due to hormone therapy or pregnancy). Chemical Peels can also be a useful tool in reducing the number of pustules and comedones (black head, whiteheads) resulting from acne.
Microneedling uses an Eclipse Micro-pen with a sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. This initiates the skin’s repair process to naturally produce collagen and elastin, ideal for smoothing fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, traumatic scars, and stretch marks. Microneedling can be used on all areas of the scalp, face, and body including fragile skin around the eyes, mouth, and neck.
Sclerotherapy is an effective way to remove the superficial, thin red to purple blood vessels often found on the thighs and legs. Also known as spider veins, they are sometimes the result of venous backflow and may be connected to large soft tortuous varicose veins. Although sclerotherapy can be used to treat some of the larger caliber vessels it is most effective on the thread like spider veins.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions and to reverse hair loss.
PRP was established two decades ago as an effective medical treatment modality in the specialty fields of oral medicine, sports medicine, and orthopedics. In hair restoration, evidence supports PRP therapy as a promising treatment option to promote hair growth.
How Does Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment Work?
If the hair follicles or hair roots are healthy, the growth of the hair is healthy. Hair follicles survive on the nutrition they get from blood supply. PRP consist of your own blood plasma concentrated with 3-5 times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. These concentrated platelets contain protein and growth factors which
- attract stem cells,
- help stimulate hair follicles growth,
- increase circulation to hair follicles, and
- decrease inflammation.
