Skin Care Treatments
Deep Pore Facial
A deep pore facial is a cleansing to remove oil and dirt from facial pores. It includes cleaning the face with an exfoliant or scrub to remove dead skin cells, applying steam to loosen dirt and oil from the pores and then extracting the debris. A facial mask is applied to rid the skin of surface oil and create the appearance of less visible pores. Treatments are usually spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Dermaplane treatment is wonderful for exfoliating the skin for those that have peach fuzz on their face. It removes this along with dead skin cells, resulting in healthier looking skin. Your makeup will go on better and your skin will be very smooth. It also prepares the skin for other aesthetic procedures such as chemical peels and IPL.
Microdermabrasion is a resurfacing treatment that uses fine crystals to gently abrade the skin’s surface. This progressive procedure fosters cell regeneration and minimizes hyperpigmentation, facial lines, sun damage, acne scarring and uneven texture. It can take multiple treatments to see improvement in skin imperfections, followed by less frequent maintenance visits. Treatments are usually spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
A chemical peel is a technique to improve and smooth the texture and tone of the facial skin using a chemical solution that causes dead skin to slough off and eventually peel off. Chemical peels are used for treatment of fine lines, uneven pigment and acne. We offer several types of facial peels and our aesthetician will evaluate your skin to determine which type is best for you. A treatment session lasts 30-60 minutes. Typically 3 to 5 treatment sessions 3-4 weeks apart are performed to accomplish the desired results. There may be a period of redness and flaking skin for a few days after your peel, and our aestheticians can recommend skin care products and make up to use immediately after your peel to maintain results.
The SkinKarma TX3 is a triple platform advanced microcell anti-aging facial system. The TriSonic Blade utilizes a bi-elastic blade which offers three advanced skin care functions. It is extremely gentle, yet effective, offering a deep cleanse, exfoliation and total hydration. The UltraToner tightens and strengthens skin cells via a deep penetrating thermal massage creating a youthful appearance. The Twister delivers vitamins and serums deep into pores and stimulates cellular renewal. Skin concerns such as acne and wrinkles are treated through the use of transdermal micro-current. Customized mask peel included.
Collagen Induction Therapy
Collagen Induction therapy (CIT), or micro skin needling, is a unique process which stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. CIT uses a very fine, surgical stainless steel medical grade microneedle to make channels into the epidermis and dermis to release growth factors that promote scarless healing and the deposition of normal woven collagen rather than scar collagen. CIT is effective in stimulating collagen and elastin production to thicken the skin, erase wrinkles, and smooth scars. Typically 3 to 5 treatment sessions 4-6 weeks apart are performed to accomplish the desired results. A treatment session lasts 60-90 minutes. Most patients are able to return to work the following day. Mild redness and swelling may occur in some patients. One touch up session may be needed every 6 months.
ThermiSmooth is a FDA approved skin treatment that can tighten and smooth facial and body areas using thermistor-controlled RF energy. ThermiSmooth delivers precise heating to the skin’s surface. ThermiSmooth treatments are gentle and patients often say it feels like receiving a warm massage. Treatments are repeated several times to achieve the desired cosmetic result.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treatments
All patients are required to have a consultation with Dr. Colgrove prior to any laser treatment.
Sometimes referred to as Fotofacial, IPL is used to improve the cosmetic appearance of the face, neck, hands or body using Intense Pulsed Light(IPL). We use this technology to treat pigmentation irregularities, acne, broken capillaries, facial veins and rosacea. Typically a series of 3 treatments spaced 3 to 4 weeks apart are performed to accomplish the desired results. A treatment session lasts between 30-60 minutes. Areas of underlying damage may become darker before lifting, and most patients report little to no downtime. Mild redness and swelling may occur in some patients but fades quickly. One touch up every 6 months is recommended for maintenance.
Leg Vein Therapy
Effectively treat unwanted face and leg veins and telangiectasias. Easily resolve vascular lesions in 1-3 treatments 6-8 weeks apart.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is an effective and efficient means of long term hair removal. A highly concentrated beam of light vaporizes troublesome hair follicles to eliminate or significantly impede the hair’s regrowth. The duration of your individual treatment will depend on the area being treated and typically several sessions are necessary to capture a large portion of the hair follicles at various growth stages. The treatment can be associated with a slight stinging sensation, but you may return to work and other daily activities immediately following a treatment.
A Q-switched laser is the most frequently used laser for tattoo removal. The laser “fractures” the pigment into particles small enough for the ink to be removed using the body’s natural filtering system. Typically 6-8 treatment sessions 6-8 weeks apart are recommended for best results.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
The Erbium YAG laser uses a less invasive approach for treating superficial wrinkles and sun damaged skin. The Erbium YAG treatment is gentle and safe, and can be used on the neck, chest, hands, and face with minimal risk. In some cases, recovery may only take one week. People with darker skin tone may also benefit from the Erbium YAG laser.
