Fraxel

Fraxel-Logo-Color-HiResThe Fraxel:Re:Store/Dual laser is a revolutionary laser featured on the Today Show, Dr. Phil, and in many national beauty magazines. It corrects age and sun damaged skin without the down time or adverse reactions associated with other resurfacing procedures. Fraxel:Re:Store/Dual is the accepted gold standard treatment and is FDA approved for these conditions:

  • Acne scars/surgical scars
  • Periorbital wrinkles
  • Irregular texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Sun spots and age spots (pigment and lesions)
  • Precancerous lesions

Along with resurfacing, Fraxel:Re:Store/Dual stimulates collagen formation in the skin resulting in a slowing of the aging process. Discomfort is minimal and down time amounts to a few days of a pink skin tone, similar to a mild sunburn. There is no crusting, oozing or peeling. Most patients can return to work the next day. Fraxel:Re:Store/Dual is safe to use on all skin types.

Ultherapy

beauty-choice-badgeUltherapy® is a new type of non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses focused ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, neck, under the chin, and even the décolletage (upper chest area).

With Ultherapy®, there’s no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change; just a healthy revving-up on the inside for a natural, noticeable effect on the outside. The result? Tighter, better-fitting skin, even on the neck. It’s the lift without the surgery!
