Any Skin Can Be Measurably Improved

Did you know that approximately 90% to 95% of what we think is inevitable aging is the result of cumulative sun damage?

The good news? Medical studies demonstrate that a great deal of skin damage can be reversed and cells can be protected to help prevent further signs of aging. Schedule an appointment today and let us show you how.

Our Skin Care Professionals, under the close guidance and supervision of Dr. Jeffrey Ptak, will recommend the appropriate products that will enable you to experience a new level of medically supervised skin care.

Unlike “over the counter products” that are expensive and sold in cosmetic departments, drug stores, spas or health clubs, improvements with our products will be visible in just days and as your involvement continues, the overall benefits will be outstanding!

Intense Pulse Light (IPL/FotoFacial)

Foto Facial targets pigmentation and improves your skins clarity and texture. It offers for the first time an effective treatment to reduce redness and flushing, age spots, sun damage, spider veins and rosacea, large pores, and dilated capillaries with no down time, little discomfort and minimal risk.

The best candidates for FotoFacial are people with early sun damage and aging of the skin who desire a healthier and more youthful appearing skin. They want to improve their skin but do not want any downtime to interfere with social or outdoor activities. It is also ideal for people who suffer from redness and flushing.

Each treatment takes approximately 45-60 minutes during which time a series of light pulses, similar to the flash of a camera, will be applied to the skin. For those with more sensitive skin a mild topical anesthetic can be applied. A full face can be done at one sitting using varying settings to maximize skin improvement. A series of five or more treatments are performed at three-week intervals.

You can expect to see a gradual decrease in overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries. Patients with sun damage can expect to see their skin become smoother with a decrease in fine wrinkles, reduced pore size and fading of sunspots or pigment. Many patients with Rosacea see an improvement in breakouts and are able to decrease or discontinue their medications.

After your first and subsequent treatments the pigmented areas will appear darker temporarily and will lighten as the skin exfoliates. This effect is normal as the pigment is lifted to the surface of the skin by the light. These improvements are gradual and will become more visible after each treatment. FotoFacial treatments can also be used in conjunction with chemical peeling or microdermabrasion to enhance the results of these procedures.

Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation

Aloe Gel base and Ceravitae Pro-Oxygen complex, 24 hr oxygen uptake for greater healing, beautiful, natural, complete coverage, perfect for sensitive or wounded skin, broad spectrum physical UVA/UVB sunscreen SPF-25, 24 hr hydration with natural moisturizer.

Micropeel

Microdermabrasion with a customized chemical peel based on individual needs of the skin.

Microdermabrasion

A highly controlled spray of fine crystals are used to remove the outer layer of skin and reveal the younger, tighter, radiant skin.

Oxygen Treatment

Antioxidant therapy to stimulate cell regeneration and to give the skin a healthy glow. This is an excellent treatment for tired skin due to environmental (toxins, pollutants, allergens, solar) damage and smoking, medications, aging. Excellent for acneic skin conditions.

PCA Peel With Hydroquinone

With Resorcinol

With Oxygen Treatment

A special blend of AHA’s/BHA’s to exfoliate and even out overall skin tone. The PCA peel is an enchanced Jessner’s formula which combines exfoliating acids, bleachers and tyrosinase inhibitors. When combined, these components have a synergistic effect, which will desquamate the surface of the skin while simultaneously lightening it. By layering multiple applications during the acne treatment, varying superficial depths can be achieved according to the needs and goals of the patient.

Pumpkin Peel

Nutrient Rich (Vitamins B,C,E, & others) to exfoliate the skin and or to be used as a prep for a deep chemical peel.

Sensi Peel

A treatment appropriate for all skin types, conditions and sensitivities. It will effectively treat acne, pigment disorders, aging skin, smokers skin and photodamaged skin. This treatment is ideal for super sensitive skin types and patients that want gradual lightening and tightening.

Ultra Peel

Appropriate for all skin types, conditions and sensitivities. They are especially ideal for sensitive skin types, as they produce a minimal stinging senstation. It will effectively treat acne, pigment disorders, aging skin, smoker’s skin and sun damaged skin. The Ultra peel was conceptualized to target the needs of the aging menopausal female. The skin is visibly plump and very hydrated following the exfoliating treatment. It is a very humectant treatment due to the natural hormone additive, chaste tee extract, the most potent source of plant progesterone. The kojic and azelaic acids contain antifungal, antimicrobial, antibacterial and anti-acne properties, which will assist with adult middle age acne. Also kojic acid is a tyrosinase inhibitor, which helps with melanin pigment control. The ascorbic acid
has lightening, anti-oxidant and collagen stimulating ability

Rejuvapen

The Rejuvapen Automatic Therapy System utilizes 9 precisely spaced micro needles in a small cartridge to create invisible, vertical, micro perforations into the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis.

As a result, the skin shifts it’s natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing collagen and elastin to repair these micro-perforations. The self-repairing property of the skin is a 100% natural form of skin renewal from the inside out. The advantage of the Rejuvapen compared to other treatments is that it not only activates cell regeneration, it also enhances the absorption of active ingredients of RP Complex into the skin during the treatment before the skin closes.

Your skin becomes firmer and regains its elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores become finer, circulation is stimulated and the overall condition of the skin improves.

Rejuvapen treats fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, surgical scarring, burns, stretch marks, and firms and tightens most body areas.

Dermaplane

Dermaplane is a safe, non-invasive treatment which uses a special tool at a forty-five degree angle and stroked along the skin, while holding the skin taut to remove “peach fuzz”, as well as dead skin cells. Dermaplane is performed as a stand alone treatment or prior to other skincare treatments to enhance their effectives. This is a wonderful form of exfoliation that can be used with or without chemicals. This treatment does not require downtime and will effectively smooth acne scars and give you the smoothest possible skin.

Post Facial Surgery Treatment

Customized treatment to aid in healing from chemical peel, CO2 laser, or other surgical procedures.
