Looking to improve your skin this year? Then you’ve come to the right place! Skin rejuvenation done in a dermatologist’s office provides the best options for patients by combining the expertise of dermatology, with the latest treatment options.

We’re excited to add two new advanced procedures to our aesthetic services.

Introducing the Rejuvenize Peel

Love peels but want more? The Rejuvenize Peel might be just what you’re looking for. A bump up from the popular Vitalize Peel, the Rejuvenize Peel uses the same powerful ingredients only stronger. Both peels have a blend of lactic acid, salicylic acid, and resorcinol followed by retinoic acid (vitamin A). Each ingredient adds its own benefit, making the blend effective for different skin types including acne and sun damage.

Rejuvenize Peel Benefits

  • Sun damaged skin
  • Stubborn pigmentation
  • Fine lines
  • Rough skin texture

Sound like something you’re interested in? You’ll need to work up to the Rejuvenize Peel by having two Vitalize Peels first. In case you’re wondering, yes, most of you will peel.  We know peel lovers, enjoy the process of seeing all that old dead skin peel off, revealing fresh glowing skin beneath. You’ll want to give yourself a few days to go through the process, so don’t plan any big social engagements for a couple weeks.

Enhanced Microneedling

Who doesn’t want a glowing, bouncy complexion?  Introducing “enhanced microneedling,” where we use the FDA cleared SkinPen device then add powerful topical ingredients like a retinoid, antioxidants, then optimize it with growth factors. Why add all this? The answer is two-fold, first microneedling creates small openings in the skin called microchannels. This provides an opportunity to get topicals much deeper into the skin.

Here are some reasons to get excited about growth factors: They promote wound regeneration, growth of collagen and wound healing. What are they? Growth factors are proteins that are naturally produced by skin cells helping to keep your skin heathy. They have been shown to improve skin firmness, and elasticity.

If you’re unfamiliar with Microneedling, the process is a controlled superficial puncture of the skin that stimulates collagen through your body’s own natural wound healing process. Rejuvenation happens from the inside out while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.

Why do we use the SkinPen? We can control the depth of penetration safely, and like that the cartridge is sterile, used once, then disposed of.

Skin Benefits from Microneedling

  • Skin texture
  • Fine lines, and wrinkles
  • Gets into hard to treat areas like crow’s feet and upper lip lines
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Enlarged pores
  • Microneedling can be done on most skin tones, does not use heat, can be and used on the face and body.
