PRE OPERATIVE AND POST OPERATIVE SKIN CARE
Working closely with Dr. Alexander, our aestheticians will prepare your skin to help you get the best results possible and to maintain the results of your procedure.

Oxygen Infusion
Cleanses revitalizes and nourishes the skin cells through its revolutionary use of pure oxygen.

Our aesthetician gently exfoliates your skin to remove dead skin cells, the applies a cleansing solution to tone and condition the skin. Osmotic Hydration is performed and a topical vitamin-enriched mask is gently massaged into your skin. Once this hydration process is complete, vitamins A, C, & E and 87 other minerals, enzymes and amino acids are propelled deep into the deep dermal layer of skin using pure oxygen in a soothing, vapor mist. This oxygen introduced at the cellular level has been shown to assist in increasing cell regeneration, thus speeding up the healing process.

This treatment is excellent for all skin types.
PREVENTION AND MAINTENANCE FOR HEALTHY SKIN

AGING SUN DAMAGE--WRINKLES AND HYPERPIGMENTATION
Are you showing signs of sun damage and premature aging? Does your skin look dull, tired, and lack its natural glow?

The daily lifestyle choices we make have a tremendous effect on our skin. Making unhealthy choices can prematurely age our skin, making us look older than we are.

An important part of any Anti-aging Skin Care Program is to know what you may be doing that is harming your skin and speeding up the aging process.

Sun exposure is very damaging to skin. Unprotected skin that is exposed to the sun becomes more mottled in appearance. Freckles turn into brown sunspots, the skin takes on a dry, leathery appearance, and wrinkles and sagging increase. Also, the risk of skin cancer is significantly increased by sun exposure.

Nearly everyone has skin damaged by the environment and the sun. Let us help you remedy fine lines and uneven, pigmented skin. Our revolutionary UV digital photography will identify your problem areas and help monitor your progress.

Individualized treatment plans may include:

Anti-Aging Facial
A customized facial for aging, sun-damaged and dehydrated skin for your specific needs using powerful antioxidants and vitamins. Stimulates cell renewal while bringing a more youthful glow to tired, sallow skin

The BioMedic Micro Peel
This three-step treatment uses:
  • Dermaplaning to precisely remove the micro-thin type layer of dead skin cells
  • a customized peel
  • and Cryogenic Therapy
This totally non-invasive skin care treatment clarifies your skin and restores its natural glow performed within 30 minutes.

Biomedic Micropeel Plus Facial
A more aggressive treatment than the Micro Peel, for more advanced aging problems.

Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is the latest technology to provide effective exfoliation and rejuvenation of the facial skin. It helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles, reduces dark spots, reduces the appearance of superficial facial skin damage from aging and the sun, reduces enlarged pores, and increases circulation for healthier facial skin with no interruption of your daily activities. It requires no recuperation time.

Microdermabrasion uses Particle Skin Resurfacing, a highly controlled spray of fine crystals (one hundred microns in size) under pressure and vacuum. The Particle Skin Resurfacing procedure acts to remove the outer layer of facial skin in a highly controlled manner. Because of its preciseness, it is virtually painless. This process, when repeated multiple times, allows the younger softer facial skin to move to the surface, promoting discernable changes in texture, color and appearance. The result: a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Patients with good general health, proper facial skin tone, and a desire for realistic results are excellent candidates for Particle Skin Resurfacing.

Revitalize peel
This peel combines the best of alpha hydroxyl acids and retinoic acid to provide strong but gentle formulations. This peel is clinically proven to improve hyperpigmentation (age spots and melasma) and effectively treats acne.

Rejuvenation Facial Treatment
The rejuvenation facial treatment consists of a consultation and a cleanse. Using a Woods lamp, our aesthetician will analyze your skin and customize a treatment plan for your individual skin type to powerfully reverse the effects of sun damage and aging. The Peel can also soften acne scars, leaving your skin healthy and rejuvenated.

Custom Enhance Peel
Medical grade chemical peels used to treat acne, pigment disorders, aging, menopausal, sun-damaged, and smokes skin. Our aesthetician will customize the peel that is right for your skin type.

Cosmelan® Depigmentation Treatment
This is an extremely effective mask for the treatment of stubborn pigmentation or melasma. The Cosmelan® Peel works by inhibiting tyrosinase, a basic enzyme in the melanin (pigment) formation process. Several of the substances present in the Cosmelan® formula act by blocking this enzyme, or even by confusing the metabolic process of the transformation chain. The principal action is the elimination of melanin patches on the face (commonly known as melasma and chloasma).

The Cosmelan® Depigmentation Treatment offers several major advantages and benefits compared with other types of depigmentation products found in the market:
  • Effective in all types of melasma
  • Rapid and easy depigmenting action
  • Compatible with ALL skin types (Fitzpatrick I — VI)
  • Light peeling effect
  • Rejuvenates the skin
  • Can be used year round
  • Beneficial for acne patients
  • Does not contain TCA
  • High safety margin
Cosmelan® Recovery Time
The peel requires 48 hours of down time. During the first two days after treatment, the skin may turn red. If the skin is very sensitive, the patient may experience an itching feeling. Slight burning and tightening of the skin is also normal, especially during the first 24 to 48 hours after starting the treatment. Applying Mesoestetic® Hydra-vital factor K may be necessary to relieve these symptoms.

Many patients find that within as little as one week from starting the Cosmelan® Depigmentation treatment, a significant and noticeable improvement of the skin is observed! Reduction of the blemishes is noted along with the appearance of new luminous and rejuvenated skin.

Enzyme Peel
The Enzyme Peel is an excellent treatment for sun damage, age spots and other imperfections. It smoothes the skin and progressively improve the skins surface. Exfoliating treatments are customized to meet the needs of each patient. These all-natural, non-abrasive, healing treatments infuse gentle sloughing extracts and natural softeners. With enzyme peels, skin becomes noticeably smoother with a refined texture and a more radiant appearance. Our enzyme peels are effective for sun damage, acne and rosacea. There is little or no down time and minimal discomfort. Best results are seen with a series of enzyme peels.
