Skin Tone and Complexion

Skin tone and complexion may be affected by a number of things including, but not limited to dark undereye circles, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation (darkening), hypopigmentation (lightening), Melasma, and Actinic Keratosis.

Treatment Options to improve texture, tone, and tightening

These options use different technologies to create a controlled wound in the skin that simulates a wound healing response, generating collagen.

Fraxel – non-ablative fractional laser therapy using heat to lift unwanted pigment from the skin’s surface and induces the production of collagen to improve the appearance of scars and the texture of the skin. A series of 3 treatments scheduled 4-6 weeks apart is recommended.

Secret RF – tiny microneedles deliver controlled radiofrequency energy to the skin at varying depths to induce collagen production and remodeling. It improves skin texture by reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and scars. Optimal results are seen after 3 treatments, with noticeable improvements up to 3 months following your last treatment. A series of 3 treatments scheduled 4-6 weeks apart is recommended.

Microneedling – small needles puncture the skin creating micro-traumas that stimulate the skin’s natural healing process resulting in collagen and elastin production. Treats fine lines, improves the look of scars, and minimizes the appearance of large pores with a series of 3-6 treatments scheduled 6 weeks apart.

Thermage – radiofrequency energy promotes the rebuilding and remodeling of collagen fibers to progressively tighten lax skin. There’s no downtime with this procedure and you will notice progressive tightening of the skin over the course of 6 months.
