The Dermatology Clinic is pleased to offer this cutting-edge body contouring treatment.
Body contouring is a cosmetic procedure that can help improve the appearance of your body. The device works by delivering high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to the treatment area that helps tone and strengthen muscles. This energy causes muscle contractions that are much more intense than what can be achieved through voluntary contractions, such as those that occur during a workout. These powerful muscle contractions lead to the development of new muscle tissue and an increase in muscle mass.
Dermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that uses a rotating brush to remove the top layer of skin. This can help to improve the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and other imperfections. Dermabrasion is usually performed on patients who have not had success with other treatments.
Kybella injection procedure helps improve the appearance of a “double chin” by reducing the amount of fat in the area. Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down and absorb dietary fat. When injected into the fatty tissue beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, these fat cells can no longer store or accumulate fat.
Laser Hair Removal
This service is a medical procedure that uses a laser to remove unwanted hair. The Dermatology Clinic offers the latest in laser technology for our patients. We use a state-of-the-art system that is effective, safe, and comfortable. Laser hair removal is a popular treatment because it can be used to remove hair from almost any area of the body. We treat all Fitzpatrick skin types from I to VI.
This is a minimally-invasive procedure that is used to treat a variety of skin concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and pigmentation. Microneedling involves the use of a device that contains very fine needles. These needles are used to create tiny punctures in the skin. This triggers the body’s natural healing process, which leads to the production of new collagen and elastin.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentration of platelets and growth factors that are derived from your blood. PRP injections are used to help treat a variety of conditions, such as hair loss, wrinkles, and joint pain. The platelets and growth factors in PRP can stimulate the healing process and help to regenerate tissue.
Botox, Xeomin, Dysport Injections
Botox is a popular treatment that can be used to improve the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the responsible for wrinkles. This paralysis reduces the appearance of wrinkles and can give the skin a more rested, refreshed and youthful appearance.
Botox is also used for the treatment of hyperhidrosis, and it is injected in areas involved like axillary, palms, soles. A local nerve block may be pursued when palms and soles are treated to assure comfort during the procedure.
Fillers are injectable treatments that can be used to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of mature skin. We use a broad spectrum of injectable fillers to meet our patients’ needs (Hyaluronic acid fillers — Juvederm, Restylane, Calcium Hydroxyapatite — Radiesse, Poly-L-Lactic Acid-Sculptra). Certain types of fillers can also be used to add volume to the lips. The Dermatology Clinic offers a variety of fillers for our patients.
A chemical peel can achieve minimally invasive skin-resurfacing at different depths and the procedure that can be used to improve wrinkles, scars, dyspigmentation, tone and overall appearance of the mature skin. The Dermatology Clinic offers a variety of chemical peels for our patients.
