PicoSure Tattoo Removal

Tattoo1PicoSure tattoo removal is the newest technology on the market.  The number of treatments is cut in half with this new technology.  Tattoo removal requires a series of treatments to receive optimal results.  The number of treatments varies from patient to patient depending on how old the tattoo is, the type of ink used, and the depth of the tattoo.  This is a great way to lighten up tattoos for cover up artistry or to completely remove an unwanted tattoo.  Treatments are spaced 6-8 weeks apart. < More info

Microdermabrasion

Diamond microdermabrasion is a gentle technique designed to smooth and freshen the skin. It invigorates the skin, stimulates cell renewal and gives a healthy texture. It is also used for age spots, comedonal acne and fine wrinkles. Enhanced microdermabrasion simultaneously combines two treatments, such as medical microdermabrasion with glycolic peels, medical dermabrasion with Blu-U light, and the Swiss microdermabrasion utilizing Methode Physiodermie products.

Blu-U Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy and Levulan® Kerastick (ALA)

ALA is applied topically to the skin and is selectively absorbed into photodamaged skin, sebaceous glands (acne), hair follicles, and precancerous cells (actinic keratosis). The result is an improvement in the texture of skin, destruction of precancerous skin lesions and improvement in acne. ALA is a photosensitive topical medication that is applied to the skin and then exposed to Blu-U light. The treatment will improve inflammatory acne, treat precancerous cells, decrease oil production by the sebaceous glands, and improve skin texture.

BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections

Botox injections are used to minimize and decrease fine lines, creases and furrows, such as horizontal creases on the forehead, the furrows or “scowl lines” between the eyebrows or the crow’s feet around the eyes. Because there is discomfort with these injections, a numbing cream can be applied to the areas to be treated 30 minutes prior to the injections.

Fillers

A fuller and rounded face is the hallmark of youth. As we get older, we lose the fullness of our face as skin, collagen and even muscle and bone are resorbed. Hollowness may develop in our cheeks and temples, and eyes may appear sunken. Deeper folds appear around the mouth as the tissue gets resorbed and can no longer hold up the weight of the cheeks. Different types of injectable gels have been developed to counteract these changes. This is a non-surgical in-office treatment. Usually one to two syringes of filler are needed per treatment. Fillers are also used to fill the fine lines around the lips and eyes to give fuller lips.

Juvéderm®

Juvéderm injectable gel replaces the hyaluronic acid that your skin has lost over time and brings back its volume by smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm is indicated for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and nasolabial folds. Juvéderm has a wonderful consistency and is the only hyaluronic acid filler that is FDA-approved to last up to one year.

Radiesse®

Radiesse is a dermal filler that contains unique calcium-based microspheres that stimulate the body to produce new collagen. It goes beyond filling and correcting facial wrinkles and folds by restoring facial volume. Radiesse provides immediate, natural-looking results that may last a year or more in many patients.

Belotero®

Belotero is a hyaluronic-based filler that is FDA-approved for injection into the superficial skin. It is a soft gel for the correction of very fine lines. It allows improvement of the lip line without distorting volume or proportion. Belotero can last up to six months or more.

Voluma®

Approved by the FDA, Juvéderm Voluma is a hyaluronic acid used as injectable facial filler. It temporarily restores volume to the mid-face. That means filling out those wrinkles around your nose and on your cheeks.

Fat Transfer (FAMI)

Facial restructuring with fat is a process in which fat is harvested from one area of the body by liposuction and transferred to another, where it is injected into facial muscles and below the skin to give an enhanced, fuller, more youthful appearance. Usually the fat is taken from the thighs and the abdomen. Results may last as long as five years. There is some evidence that multipotential cells in the fat may stimulate the redevelopment of shrunken muscles and dermis.

Consultation for this procedure is with Dr. Frank Koranda.
