Chemical Peel, Dermabrasion, Obagi Skin Care Program

Chemical Peel (Phenol and Trichloroacetic Acid): Is a technique for restoring wrinkled, scarred, unevenly pigmented, sun-damaged or blemished facial skin, using a chemical solution to peel away skin' top layers.

Dermabrasion: Is a mechanical scraping of the top layers of skin using a high-speed rotary wheel. This technique softens sharp edges of surface irregularities, including acne and other scars, and fine wrinkles, especially around the mouth.

Obagi Skin Care: In addition to the above surgical procedures, the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons offer the Obagi skin care program. Which is a prescription supervised skin rejuvenation program. This is a six step program used in conjunction with tretinoin prescription that revitalizes your skin. This program corrects premature damage, reduces future damage and skin looks and acts younger and healthier. We also carry the preventative line of Obagi-C Rx System. This line is the first and only prescription based Vitamin C System.  Visit Obagi's website for more information about their skin care program.

CO2 Laser: Is a laser treatment that resurfaces facial skin and removes wrinkles by using heat to remove layers of skin. It provides an alternative to dermabrasion and chemical peel processes. This treatment selectively removes old and damaged skin and allows new, healthier, tighter skin to be rejuvenated.

PhotoDerm: Is a non-invasive treatment of benign vascular and pigmented lesions such as facial spider veins, port-wine stains, and rosacea. It is also used on patients with unwanted skin blemishes including freckles, age spots, sun spots, and birthmarks.
