Questions for The Skin Expert
1. Q: I need to tighten the skin on my face and neck, but am terrified of going under the knife. Are there non-surgical options available for me that will actually work?
A: Yes, Thermage . You see as you age the collagen in your skin breaks down resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin. Thermage uses a patented radiofrequency technology to safely heat the deeper layers of your skin, stimulating existing collagen and promoting new collagen growth for younger looking skin.

Our office also offers other skin treatments, such as Fraxel, microdermabrasion, laser hair removal, laser tattoo removal and much more.
2. Q: I am noticing that my skin is dull looking, no natural shine, and getting more brown spots and sun damage over time. What can I do to reverse this damage and get rid of these brown spots?
A: Fraxel treatment uses patented fractional technology to target damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. The laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched, which promotes rapid healing. This stimulates your body’s OWN natural healing process, replacing the old and damaged cells with fresh, glowing healthy skin. For more information on Fraxel, call or come in today. We also offer other skin treatments, such as Thermage, microdermabrasion, laser hair removal and much more.
3. I have got to find a way to get rid of this tattoo I got years ago. Now it has started affecting my job, my social life and my self-image…how can I get rid of this thing for good?
A: The Tri-laser has been suited with an arsenal of light -based wave lengths that are specifically attracted to tattoo ink. In order to clear the ink from the skin, the laser system creates a collimated energy beam of light. The light will pass through the outer skin layers targeting only the embedded ink. Energy from the laser is rapidly absorbed by the ink causing the pigment to fracture into microscopic particles, over time, the body’s immune system will clean the particles from the skin causing the tattoo to fade and eventually disappear.
4. Q: I eat right, I exercise, but I still have fat to get rid of. Is there a safe and permanent way to lose fat without having to have surgery?
A: Liposonix : 1 treatment, 1 hour, 1 size smaller. The Liposonix treatment is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that can get rid of targeted fat around your waistline. It uses high intensity ultrasound energy to permanently destroy unwanted fat by focusing this energy on targeted fat approximately 1.4 cm below the skin surface. The skin is not harmed as fat tissue just beneath the skin is permanently destroyed. The body’s natural process then removes the treated fat, leaving you with a thinner, more contoured waistline. There is little to no down time with the Liposonix procedure.
