Fraxel laser technology is a type of laser resurfacing that can help to reverse the visible signs of aging & minor skin problems. Fraxel works by producing an intense beam of focused light, varying in intensity & pulse duration, directed at the area being treated. The laser ‘shots’ are produced in a computer generated pattern. The equal spacing of these shots allows for more rapid healing and less down time.
Fraxel is effective at removing:
Laser resurfacing improves the texture of the skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance. It also minimizes the appearance of uneven skin tone & facial scars. Keep in mind that this is a procedure which may need to be repeated in order to gain the maximal effect.
When we are young, our skin is smooth and elastic with a healthy glow. As we age, our ability to maintain that smoothness and elasticity diminishes, resulting in skin that becomes drier, thinner and less able to replenish itself. Our body's natural collagen and hyaluronic acid levels decrease and our skin becomes looser. This leads to wrinkling injected under the skin to contour and smooth wrinkles, lines or hollow areas of the face.
The most common areas of creasing for treatment with dermal fillers are the nasolabial folds (from the edge of the nostrils to the corner of the mouth) and marionette lines (from the corners of the mouth down to the chin). They are also used to "plump out" or augment the lips and lines around the mouth for a fuller, more youthful appearance.
You laugh. You frown. You concentrate. Over time, these expressions leave their mark upon your face. Before, there wasn't a lot you could do about it. Now, there's BOTOX® Cosmetic, a simple, non-surgical procedure that can dramatically reduce even your toughest wrinkle within days. One treatment of a few tiny injections relaxes the muscles that cause lines to form and keeps them relaxed for months.
This simple, safe procedure takes minutes and is relatively painless. Because the procedure is non-surgical, there is no recovery time, so you can return immediately to your daily routine. You simply return for repeat treatment once the wrinkles return.
Years of sun exposure, aging, and pollution can take a toll on our skin. Microdermabrasion is an effective non-surgical treatment that helps remove a variety of skin conditions including acne scars, fine lines/wrinkles, and other facial scars. Microdermabrasion uses a fine diamond encrusted wand and suction to remove the topmost layer of your dull lifeless skin cells. This process leaves the skin looking fresher, younger, and more radiant in just one treatment. However, multiple treatments are recommended for optimal results. The number of treatments and duration will vary depending on your skin type and desired results.
Microdermabrasion is very safe, non-surgical, and requires no downtime or local anesthesia. Most patients will describe the treatment as feeling a slight discomfort, but no pain. It feels like one is taking fine particles of sand and gently rubbing them on the face to exfoliate the skin. In-fact patients can resume normal activities immediately after their treatment.
A glycolic chemical peel is a liquid chemical solution that is gently placed on the face for a brief period of time. Chemical peels remove the damaged, out layer of the skin & can increase cellular turnover to help reduce acne breakouts & facial scars, environmental damage, & improve the health of dry/oily skin.
Our glycolic chemical peels are different then what you’ll find offered in a day spa because they are medical grade quality. Although you will see immediate results, the number of treatments will vary depending on your skin type and goals. Glycolic peels are a quick, safe, and easy way to refresh your skin and leave it with a natural, beautiful glow.
Atypical Nevus (also called Atypical Mole, dysplastic mole, & Clark’s nevus) is a specific type of mole whose appearance differs from other common moles. These types of moles are generally larger and have irregular & indistinct boarders. They can also vary in color, ranging from tan to dark brown shades on a pink background. Although they can be found anywhere, they are commonly found on the trunk of men & the calves in women.
Atypical moles are considered to be pre-cancerous and are more likely to turn into melanoma vs. regular moles. However, not everyone that has atypical moles will get melanoma. Interestingly, most moles (both ordinary & atypical) never develop into cancer, so it’s not necessary to remove all atypical moles. Deciding whether to remove the atypical mole(s) is done on a case-by-case basis. If you’re family has a history of melanoma, you should be closely checked for signs of melanoma.
Dr. Hoffman will review these issues with you as well as the design of the excision, in order to achieve the best possible cosmetic result.. Contrary to popular belief, using a laser to remove atypical moles is not recommended because the light energy from the laser cannot penetrate deep enough to remove the entire mole.
